Why do we feel so much better after we’ve removed our clothes whether at home or at our favorite naturist club or beach? Why do people new to naturism marvel at sensations of freedom and joy of feeling the air after only one visit? Why do many of us have the burning desire to always be nude?
I think I’ve figured it out. It’s not unnatural, it’s that we’re permitting our body to go back to its natural state and allow its natural tendency to heal itself. Like asking why do we sleep, or why do we dream? Our body is healing itself, and if we interfere with these natural processes we cause damage to ourselves. The 2012 summer issue of going Natural had several articles discussing the health aspects associated with naturism. Which got me thinking, apart from naturists who write for a magazine for naturists, how do non-naturists feel on the subject?Turning to google I used searches: “nudity health”, “naturist health” and “nude health” and got a lot of supporting articles.Here are some of the internet articles I found:
o Nudity Is Healthy for Brains and Bodies o The Health Benefits of Being Naked o Is being in the nude healthy for you and your family? o Does Public Nudity Spread Disease? o The Academic Naturist: Health Movement o Benefits of Nude for Health o The Origins of Nude Swimming at the "Y" & Public Schools o The Cold Air Bath. (Ben Franklin used to do it) o The Air Bath
o Healing Power of Sunlight and Vitamin D

Beware however of those that sites that use the word "nude" as a metaphor.
