Nature Healing Nature is
a 501(c)3 non-profit organization bringing three profoundly
important programs to the world.
As we take our work into the world, this organization offers
an avenue for our donors, benefactors, and partners to help
others help themselves.
We believe that Nature offers solutions to human problems, after all, She has been successfully figuring things out for 4.5 billion years - we just need to learn how to listen and apply. Nature Healing Nature aims to help Global citizens take ownership for improving their health, living conditions and personal fulfillment using materials and lessons found in Nature.
Dynamic Solutions to Global Issues
Billions of people do not have clean water to drink, over two billion people defecate outside, and billions do not wash their hands for lack of water or soap. It results in illness – usually diarrhea – over 4 billion incidents a year. Millions of man-years of productivity are lost and five thousand children under the age of six will die every day from water related illness until we do something about it. The building of large global infrastructures will take decades and billions of dollars. About a third of the billions spent in the last thirty decades has been for naught because people can’t maintain the things they’ve been given – latrines, wells and small water systems. WHO states the Millennium Goals will probably not be met by 2015 and that was to reduce the problem by only half of what it was in 2001.
Empowering People to Help Themselves
Healing Nature offers a solution that may not be as convenient
as a flush toilet or piped water to the home but it can
be just as effective at eliminating water related illness.
We show people how to clean their own water and build safe
dignified latrines out of materials that they can find in
Nature within a mile of where they are standing using skills
that they are already familiar with. We empower people to
We also provide programs advancing personal fulfillment by helping youth and adults to profoundly connect mentally, physically, and emotionally to nature and their unique potential.
Eliminating Water Related
Illness On Earth
It takes action to make a difference.
Billions of people are sick with water related illness
every day; thousands die. A short term answer is to
get them to take ownership of the problem at the household
level and then to show them how to use what Nature
can provide to take care of themselves with materials
at their feet and skills that they already have. Learn

It seems to be human nature to sentence
ourselves; I’m too short, too tall, too smart,
too ugly, too dumb, I’m stuck, helpless . .

potential. Nature Healing Nature offers safe programs

light then we offer ways to free ourselves of these
self imposed limitations, connect with our unique
potential, and explore ways to take action in a world
that needs us.
