I just returned from a Cruise to the Bahamas. I haven't felt so good in years. I thought maybe it was being away from the stress, but I could dance and run up & down the stairs like I haven't been able to in years.
I've heard that the lower elevations do make others with all kinds of illnesses feel better.
Do you think this is why MS cases are lower in these areas?
Now I want to move or go on move trips!
It sure sounds like a good reason to take more trips to me!
The lower elevation would allow your lungs to work more efficientlly, which is really important if you have respiratory issues. When you go to the mountains (higher elevations) your whole respiratory system works so much harder.
I would suspect that the change of scenery for vacation does us all a world of good. Toss in some sunshine, good food and strong libations and you have a good sounding recipe for a temporary *cure.*
Start thinking about testing your theory and plan your next cruise .....
I've heard that higher elevations are actually better for certain ailments, like Parkinson's. Michael J. Fox just took a trip to Tibet and found that his symptoms were much relieved by being in the higher altitudes.
