to High Altitude &
Suggestions to Prevent Altitude Sickness
you visit the high desert of Santa Fe, New Mexico at 7,000
feet above sea level or go skiing or hiking in the Rockies
or another high mountain range, you run the risk of experiencing
altitude sickness as well as dehydration.
As the altitude increases, the barometric pressure decreases.
This causes the oxygen pressure to drop as well. This
is known as oxygen deprivation. It is not easy to predict
who will, or will not, experience symptoms. If you are
one of the unlucky ones, it could ruin your entire trip.
used to live near Santa Fe, New Mexico and people came
from all over the world to visit this enchanted place.
Groups and individuals came to us specifically for guided
hikes to sacred sites, majestic waterfalls, or
to visit native pueblos. They also came to experience
powerful ceremonies like sweat lodge.
The first thing I would ask them when they said they would
be visiting from out of town was, "Where do you live?"
you live at sea level, or any location below 5,000 feet,
do not plan any strenuous physical activity like a hike,
skiing, or participating in a sweat lodge within the first
day or two of your arrival to Santa Fe, NM. Regardless
of your level of fitness, you need to give your body time
to acclimate. Even world class athletes have altitude
adjustment issues and are quickly winded doing anything
at the high elevation. Just walking down the street can
be exhausting until your body is used to utilizing less
and drink plenty of water to help your body adjust
the first few days.
are two products that I recommend to help your body before
and after you arrive.
first is Thrive - a roll-on aromatherapy
product enhanced with a flower essence I made from a local
native plant called the Prickly Pear Cactus. The Prickly
Pear thrives in the high and dry climate of Santa Fe and
it can assist you to do the same. You simply shake the
bottle and then roll it on to the back of your neck and
pulse points like cologne or perfume and it assists your
body in acclimating. Thrive also helps when you are under
any type of physical or mental stress. It is fabulous
after a sweat lodge when your body is in "recovery."
using Thrive three to four times a day starting a week
or more before your journey and continuing every day at
am writing to tell you how grateful my mother and I are
for the support that Thrive gave us at
high altitudes . . . from Santa Fe and on up over 8,000
feet in the Sangre de Christo mountains in Colorado. My
mother had a dream of going to visit Great Sand Dunes
National Park in Colorado. She had gone through bypass
surgery two years ago at the age of 88. I wanted to help
her fulfill her dream, but was concerned about how she
would do with the altitude. She did fabulously
with the help of Thrive. We were able to walk
and explore and be active with no adjustment time. She
did just as well as she does at sea level, which is where
she lives. When we were in Colorado, the people where
we were staying were amazed at her endurance and activity
level. They have seen many, many people much younger than
my mother not do nearly as well. I could also feel the
benefits of using Thrive, especially when I was at the
top of Pike's Peak and able to walk around to take in
the views. Thanks for a great essence." - Carol Renwick, Teacher, New Hampshire
