Climate And Soil
Source: Papers On Health
The soil on which one lives is a matter of primary
importance; it may be a matter of life or death for a weakly person,
but it is important for every one. First, as regards the subsoil on
which a house is built. If this be clay, or impervious rock, then no
possible system of drainage can make the site a dry one; this condition
of affairs will be very bad indeed for health. No house should be built
on such a soil if at all possible to avoid it. Light open gravel and
sand, as subsoil, make the very best health conditions. The surface
soil is also important. If this be such that streets and garden walks
dry quickly after rain, you have elements of health; if they remain
long wet, then you have elements of unhealthiness. If the soil be
right, then the climate is to be considered. The mere situation of two
houses, only half a mile apart, will make all the difference in this,
and should be carefully watched. A house sheltered on the south and
west, exposed to the north and east, is badly situated; the opposite
exposure is usually good. Plenty of sun should fall upon the house all
day, and on all sides, if that be possible. Yet it must be seen that no
hollow or stagnant air be chosen; it is nearly as bad as stagnant
water, for in mild winds, dryness of soil and air, and abundant sun,
lie much virtue for health and healing.
