First came ecotourism, as people flocked to rural areas to escape noisy, polluted cities. Now, Guizhou province is turning to a new trend experts describe as eco-healthcare.

The southwestern province has established 12 pilot forest health zones that will offer a range of services to help people prevent or alleviate illnesses as they are surrounded by a relaxing natural environment.

The Guizhou Forestry Administration secured a 60 billion yuan ($8.8 billion) loan on Saturday from Agricultural Development Bank of China to improve environmental protection and its forestry industry.
