We have talked to many people who have moved to our beautiful mountains looking for that healthy “X” factor including clean air! Many soon realize after moving here that our air contains (among other things) year-round airborne pollens. Because our elevation ranges between 2,000 and 6,000 feet plants and trees are always in varying degrees of growth cycles up and down the mountains. Add in the prevalence of mold, animal dander, and our taste for wheat and dairy products! This adds up to lots of challenges for our immune systems that work 24/7 to keep our bodies clear of invasive substances.
