Modern research points to the lack of physical activity, sun exposure, good sleep and simple food as key reasons for diseases in people. NALS offers an outdoor program that will provide exactly these key elements and the results are seen dramatically within 6-7 days. The program will rekindle energy, enthusiasm, courage and confidence in the participant. This program is highly recommended for improving physical and mental health.
And also for people facing higher degrees of anxiety, insecurity, fear of failure and withdrawal symptoms. For some people, rapid urbanisation and isolation from family can have disastrous consequences on the mind and body. Lack of exercise, addiction to junk food and social media are playing havoc to human health. Growing children are especially vulnerable to gadget addiction and this can lead to brain damage, stunted growth and early onset of diseases. Also, in the case of trauma victims and troubled minds, modern medicine is unable to help other than prescribing antidepressants to subdue the symptoms rather than cure the malaise.. In such circumstances, one has to reinvent, change habits and improve mental processes through extensive physical activity in calm and tranquil outdoors..
