Amma in Santa Fe - Summer 2017

Visiting High Altitudes

The elevation in Santa Fe, New Mexico is 7000 feet above sea level. The air is "thinner" here and there are a few tips you will want to follow to prevent "High Altitude Sickness."

#1. Drink plenty of water. You can get dehydrated quickly here. Also avoid alcohol and caffeine as these can make dehydration worse.

#2. Do not over-exert yourself physically, at least for the first couple of days.

#3. Many people add chlorophyll to their water, such as ChlorOxygen, to help their bodies to adjust.

#4. Pay attention and TAKE IT SERIOUSLY. If you develop a headache that will not go away, nauseousness/vomiting, persistent shortness of breath while resting, fatigue/weakness, or loss of consciousness, please seek medical attention.
