Do you love the mountains but feel lousy at high altitude? Reduced oxygen levels can cause a host of unpleasant ailments that can put a damper on vacations and mountain lifestyles. The most common high altitude symptoms are:
- Fatigue and loss of energy
- Shortness of breath
- Problems with sleep
- Loss of appetite
The good news is Balanced Natural Medicine offers Mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy (also known as mHBOT) – a modality that has been shown to reduce or eliminate symptoms of altitude sickness by simply delivering more oxygen to your body’s cells. mHBOT is a safe, relaxing and highly effective chamber that simulates an 8,000-foot reduction in altitude while breathing 91 percent oxygen-enriched air. Let’s put this into perspective. If you visited Telluride, Colorado at 8,750 feet where there is less than 15 percent oxygen in the air, you may experience high altitude symptoms. Getting mHBOT would simulate a 750-foot elevation environment and more than quadrupole the oxygen level – making you feel like an even better version of your normal self. It can also be used preventively to help the body gently acclimate to higher elevations.
