We have a treat for ALL our supporters from the Xpeditions TV archives!
This is a short film we made while traveling from Juliaca to Puno at Lake Titicaca Peru. While at his elevation (12,000′) you really feel the effects of rarified air. It can really hammer you… To combat this you chew Coca leaves.
Within a few minutes, you start feeling better… more normal. Why? Because Coca leaves (unlike cocaine which is really harmful) is actually a remedy for high-altitude sickness and contains numerous nutrients beneficial to the body. We’ve used this approach many times at altitude. It makes all the difference!
Now, for the first time, Kathy is ready to teach you how this is done correctly!
Does it really help? Oh yes… Just ask her and she’ll tell you, “It makes me feel happy!”
