When you arrive at a higher altitude than where you normally live and play, you may experience a number of symptoms that include dizziness, nausea, fatigure and shortness of breath.
These symptoms are caused by two things. First, the barometric pressure is less at higher altitudes (there is less pressure on the outside of your body) so fluids from the bloodstream migrate out into the body tissues. When this happens in the sinus area it can cause dizziness and nausea (Vertigo). Second, the fact that there is less oxygen makes your heart work harder so you may get out of breath more easily and become fatigued.
What ca you do to compensate for the effects of altitude?
- Take it easy, especially during the first few days after arriving at a higher altitude; take time to rest, don’t over exert yourself.
- Breath more deeply than you might normally – this helps you pick up more oxygen.
- Be aware that the effect of alcohol is intensified at higher altitude.
- Drink plenty of water, this triggers your kidneys to remove the excell water that you retain.
- Use “Altitude Adjustment Chlorophyll Concentrate”. Chlorophyll helps your blood carry more oxygen.
- Drink “Sierra Vida Altitude Adjustment Tea”. This will improve your energy and help your kidneys remove the excess fluid.
- If you experience serious shortness of breath, dizziness or other symptoms, see a doctor.
