BEALL MANSION An Elegant Bed & Breakfast Inn
Natural Anti-Depressant & Immune Support
"It's nothing new. Inns have always made people happy. But now they are also being recognized as good medicine."
Stay Healthy Naturally
Did you know that dry air and low humidity are an ideal breeding ground for COVID?
According to a study published in Transboundary and Emerging Diseases, for every 1 percent decrease in relative humidity, COVID-19 cases can increase by 7 percent to 8 percent. A 10 percent drop in relative humidity could double COVID-19 infections.
According to Hartford Healthcare, an increase in humidity makes infectious particles both bigger and heavier, causing them to drop from the air and land on hard surfaces.
The BEALL MANSION's extensive collection of indoor plants oxygenate the air—and along with the hot water boiler radiator system during the winter months—add much needed humidity.
Doctor's orders. Come, experience lush surroundings while supporting your immune system naturally.
Stay Healthy Naturally
- The British NHS National Health Service is giving out Nature prescriptions.
- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reminds people that vitamin D (produced by exposure to sunlight) can fight disease by helping strengthen the immune system.
- Psychologist Pamella Montgomery says, “being in nature is crucial to our being."
- Sevar Yaldo, aspiring physician, likes to remind people that “seeing green” can be as important as eating green.
- The Mayo Clinic is promoting nature trails.
Refresh both body and soul. Commune with nature in the fresh air and vitamin D producing and pathogen killing power of natural sunlight—about the The BEALL MANSION's 1 acre of grounds & gardens as well as the area's extensive collection of walking, hiking, and biking paths and trails. Fabulous!
Escape to The BEALL MANSION. It's good medicine!
