Efficacy of healing forest therapy for patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
Introduction: The health-promoting effects of forest therapy are still rather unknown in patients with chronic diseases. In Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany, the first healing forest (HF) was established in 2017. A HF is a forest region which has been designed for the therapy of patients with special medicinal indications. In the present study the efficacy of an add-on therapy in the HF was investigated in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) during an inpatient pulmonary rehabilitation (PR).
