Health and Climate:
Lama Foundation is located at 8,600 feet elevation in the mountains of Northern New Mexico. To help prevent altitude sickness, some people find it very helpful to take chlorophyll tincture, beginning a week or so before arrival and continuing during the time at Lama. (Suggested dosage is 1 tablespoon in a glass of water several times per day.) Once at Lama, plan to drink lots of water as the climate is very dry. Summer sunlight is intense at the high elevation: bring good sunscreen, dark glasses and a sun hat, especially if you anticipate being outdoors. Daytime summer temperatures, moderated by the dry air, are generally warm and nights can be quite cool. There are summer rains, heavy at times.
