is this a real thing? like when I go down south a little - like Maryland or Virginia, I seem to do so much much better- and almost normal!! then as soon as I hit mountains again (PA) I can feel things coming right back! so this time I thought to myself that it might just be the altitude?

I guess it could also be more allergens for me, or temp change or something else.... but I thought this was very interesting.

the only thing that bothers me at lower altitude is that it constipates me.

Be thankful in all things- even difficult times and sickness and trials - because there is something GOOD to be seen

Yes! Same thing here! I've been pondering this issue for a while now! I feel it's very, very important to my recovery.

--------------------
I appreciate all your replies. If it takes me a while to respond, it is either because I'm too sick or because I am unable to log in. From European servers, Lymenet is very frequently inaccessible for days at a time ...

There is more available oxygen due to higher pressure at sea level...

However, you may become acclimated to this altitude change over a period of time and not feel as much difference as the initial response.

My parents (who are reaching 80) had to move to the seaside about 5 years ago. They lived most of their lives on higher grounds.

Since they moved there, their doctors said, they have to stay there, as almost all values in their blood changed for better.

They have diabetics, high blood pressure for more than half of their lives. Mother has osteoporosis, bad (even that had stabilized, they said).

I wonder if the air is not better (less poluted), then if they do not eat more fresh fish, and if they are not more grounded (they walk barefoot a lot), the air has more negative ions for sure.


http://www.telegraph.co.uk/lifestyle/wellbeing/diet/3355947/Be-beside-the-seaside.html

The effect of negative ions is also clear for me. When it rains, i go out, and breathe deeply, wow, it has nothing to do with breathing inside air...

Whatever the reasons, I hope you continue improving!!!!

Interesting article. People report healing from arthritis just by being in Florida!!

Other diseases that may improve: asthma, eczema, anemia, tuberculosis, rheumatic fevers , stomach problems and insomnia.

Anywhere over 500 feet and your inner ear / middle ear can have too much pressure if it's involved in any of your health issues (and with lyme, the vestibular system is usually very much involved).

When the vestibular system is under pressure, it can be hard to walk, talk, eat, think, read, write, or even move. Sometimes the effects can be subtle without outright vertigo or dizziness but a sense of just being out of sorts.

The inner / middle ear system is connect to just about all our functions of thinking and movement - and how at ease we might be even just being still.

For myself, though, it's more about the humidity and heat factor. And thunderstorms (well, the thunder part of that). I'm "allergic" to all three factors.

Yet, there is nothing like a warm gentle ocean breeze to feel all is right with myself, and with the world. Those gentle ocean breezes hold such goodness.

I feel better in Florida. I walk on the beach daily down there getting the benefits of grounding and sea air. In Ohio, I'm more bogged down with allergies and just don't have the same energy I do at the beach.

When I was sick, I had trouble visiting my grandmother in NC mountains. Even just driving I75 through Knoxville where you go up that mountain would cause my fibromyalgia symptoms to increase and by the time I got to her house, I spent most of my visit on the couch.

Last time I visited Asheville, I had no issues and I no longer feel bad driving through TN.

Hm. I got horribly sick in Florida, that's when I got symptomatic.

The heat and humidity did me in. I felt like there were bugs and microbes everywhere and none of it ever died.

Where we live can effect us. In classical

homeopathy, it is checked to see how the person

does in different kinds of weather. Some people

don't do well in cold damp (these people tend to

chill easy and can be holding damp phlegm). Some

don't do well in hot humid and some thrive in

it. Some people do better by the sea and some

better in the desert. That is why, back in the

day, if people had the money, they would send

"sick little Timmy" to go to the alpine area to

help his lungs or to the desert to help the

arthritis. Also, some people react to the 'before

the storm' situation and some feel energized by

thunder and lightening. Some people do well in

the wind and in some people it takes their energy

away.

I felt much healthier in Arizona at 2.5K ft than I do in California at sea level. Too many urban pollutants, I think, and maybe more mold relative to the desert. And colder.

But really high elevations (above 7 or 8K) - always make me feel much worse, too.

I'm here for a job and can't afford to move back to AZ without a job - any recommendations for how to manage living in an environment that isn't ideal for me?

(and I know I'm super lucky for being able to work full-time while sick...it would just be nice to feel better during all this....)
