    any­thing to take pri­or to going to high alti­tude to reduce the symp­toms of alti­tude change?

    1. Hi Mona:
      There are three answers to your ques­tion:

      1. Con­di­tion your­self for high alti­tude using the alti­tude pre­pare pro­to­col start­ing at least 2 weeks before trav­el
      2. Use a trav­el cock­tail of B‑Vitamins dur­ing trav­el to opti­mize oxy­gen trans­fer dur­ing the trav­el expe­ri­ence, B1, B6, B‑12, Mag­ne­sium Oro­tate & Vit­a­min C
      3. Avoid dehy­dra­tion — con­cen­trat­ed blood plas­ma pre­vents oxy­gen from dis­solv­ing into plas­ma and trig­gers inflam­ma­tion — Pro­to­col 1 has a strong effect of improv­ing cel­lu­lar hydra­tion metab­o­lism well before trav­el. Urine should be light and copi­ous a week before, dur­ing and after trav­el

      Hope this helps. The trav­el stress expe­ri­ence often is a major cul­prit set­ting the stage for alti­tude sick­ness, as is the ten­den­cy for to have a few extra drinks on vaca­tion. Both of these ele­ments con­tribute to vul­ner­a­bil­i­ty. Option 1 — usu­al­ly improves metab­o­lism enough to pre­vent issues.

    I have recent­ly under­gone bypass surgery and had a reduced pul­monary func­tion of 64% I live at 7700ft in Col­orado and I am hav­ing alti­tude sick­ness symp­toms. My ques­tion is there a cumu­la­tive effect on my tis­sues and is this reversable with­out per­ma­nent dam­age if I move to a low­er alti­tude.

    1. Yes there is a cumu­la­tive effect. Ardenne doc­u­ment­ed a group of elder­ly who used OMT pro­to­cols. With­in a about 2 weeks their oxy­gen trans­port per­for­mance at lev­els of about 23 years old. He test­ed them a year lat­er and they still retained a sig­nif­i­cant ben­e­fit. We rou­tine­ly see durable and cumu­la­tive progress with repet­i­tive train­ing.
