introduction

Introduction

Many diseases found commonly at lower altitudes occur less at high altitudes; such as diabetes, hypertension, asthma, and others.

I will study the Puerto Rican populations to investigate the benefits in hypertension and asthma diseases that they will experiment with hypoxic therapyat sea level, using altitude simulators.

how hypoxia works
How Hypoxia Works?

What is Hypoxia?

  • Regenerate cells after a range of

20 to 30 days after hypoxia therapy

  • Is the low content or lack of
  • oxygen in the body
hypoxic therapy effects
Hypoxic Therapy Effects

Personal Genetic and Maximum Sports Performance

Power, Resistance and Strength

Muscular and Cardiovascular Energy and Adaptation

Promote New Cells Generation, Increase the Red Blood Cells and ATP Production

Erythropoietin Hormone (EPO) Plus Iron

Inductor Factor by Hypoxia 1 (HIF-1)

Protein compound of two Subunits (hypoxia inducible factor-1alfa, who is inactive,

and hypoxia inducible factor-1beta, who is degenerating because is only activated over 6000ft sea level)

Hypoxia - Lack of Oxygen in the Body

hypothesis

Hypothesis

The Puerto Rican people submitted to intermittent hypoxic therapy will experiment hypertension and asthma improvements after being submitted to a high altitude protocol with hypoxic altitude therapy system.

objectives
Objectives
  • To determine how the low content of oxygen tension in tissues (hypoxia) improves the hypertension and asthma diseases in Puerto Rican population, with intermittent hypoxic therapy system.
methodology
Methodology
  • Two types of hypoxic trainings; workout hypoxic training and intermittent hypoxic therapy (IHT)
  • Experimental groups
  • Negative control
  • Positive control
  • Weekly medical tests
  • Permissions of the IRB
  • Consent and nondisclosure agreement

IHT

expected results and conclusion
Expected Results and Conclusion
  • Experimental group with asthma will eliminate asthma
  • Experimental group with hypertension will normalize their blood pressure
