Historically, evidence is available to make us understand the fact that nature has also played a therapeutic role in our lives by benefiting our mental health as well as physical health. The present study will address a concern: How can nature healing occur if a person suffers from chronic disease or is disabled? Through this chapter, an attempt has been made to provide a solution via digital or virtual reality tools, equip disabled patients, and give them a reel feeling of nature. Those who cannot go out and get the real feel of nature can make use of virtual reality tools to heal themselves with technology. Also, the present chapter will address the question, can virtual exposure to nature be equivalent to real exposure? Further, an attempt is made to discover how technological advancement is benefiting our lives, equipping us in the best possible ways. The prime concern here is to unfold how technological advancement and digital revolution have influenced the way we relate to the environment
