Mountain Air is Not So Polluted

If you live in a big city, or even a decent sized town then you know that the air quality can be pretty miserable. With traffic congestion at an all-time high in many metropolitan areas, the air is filled with allergens, pollutants, and irritants that are bad news for our lungs! If you have experienced respiratory irritation, shortness of breath, wheezing or unexplained bouts of coughing then you are long overdue for a visit to our chalet cabin in Little Switzerland NC.

For most city dwellers, the pollution is a minor irritant, but people living with asthma are at a higher risk, and long term exposure to high levels of pollution can lead to chronic illness including emphysema, lung disease, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Taking regular breaks away from the city is a great way to give your lungs a break! Up here in the Blue Ridge Mountains, we have less traffic and less pollution making our air cleaner and kinder to your lungs. What better reason to book a stay at our chalet cabin in Little Switzerland, NC?

Higher Altitudes Boost Health

It is likely you have heard all about altitude sickness. If you have talked about a trip to the mountains, it might be something your friends have warned you about. However, what few people realize is that higher altitudes can have a positive impact on your health! A study conducted in 2016 examined what happens to our bodies when they are exposed to high altitudes. Volunteers were examined over a two week period, and most of them adapted to the new altitude within 24 hours!

The study revealed that red blood cells were able to retain more oxygen for longer periods of time. This is something that can be linked to lowering blood pressure, reducing the risk of heart disease, lower high blood sugar, and even helping to reduce obesity. That trip to our chalet cabin in Little Switzerland, NC is looking like a better by the second!
