What is Altitude Training and Why is it Excellent For All Levels Of Fitness ?
Altitude Training, also known as Hypoxic Training, involves breathing low oxygen air in order to increase athletic performance, pre-acclimatize to high altitudes, and improve health and wellness.
Exposure to low oxygen air forces the body to adapt by making more effective use of oxygen, which results in greater oxygen delivery to the muscles, tissues, and brain. This translates to better physical performance at both high altitude and sea level, as well as a greater overall tolerance for high altitude locations.
The Effects of Altitude Training
The following physiological benefits have been shown to occur as a result of altitude training:
•Decreased Resting Heart Rate (RHR)
•Decreased Blood Pressure (BP)
•Increased Erythropoietin (EPO) Production
•Increased Maximal Oxygen
•Consumption (VO2 Max)
•Increased Lactate Threshold
•Increased Mitochondrial Production
•Increased Fat Metabolism
How Archetype Altitude Systems Simulates Altitude
Our systems generate normobaric hypoxic air to replicate the oxygen levels found at altitudes up to 17,000ft. This is achieved by drawing in ambient air, separating oxygen molecules to meet the desired O2 percentage, then outputting a continuous flow of fresh, filtered, hypoxic air for breathing.
This allows altitude training to be performed right here in Birmingham Alabama.

Migraines are almost a lifetime sentence of medication which is a horrible prison-like reality to be trapped. Migraines can be biomechanical, metabolic, or a combination of the two. Usually, when an individual has one-sided migraines the problem has a heavy biomechanic dysfunction. When the migraine pattern is on both sides, switches sides, or randomly moves around the head dictates a higher metabolic dysfunction. “Metabolic” means a problem within the organ systems of the body.
Your feet should never hurt. If you have foot pain at any point during your day then there is a problem somewhere in the lower half of your body. If you have pain associated with hip, knee, or ankle pain it's extremely likely that the foot problem is linked and is the same problem. Most Individuals will have an injury that will come and go away multiple times throughout the year.
“Dr.G Lawrence Rarickk conducted studies indicating that physical motion in childhood supports endocrine and neurological development as well as overall metabolism, leading to healthy growth of body and brain.” The brain needs stimulation and it gets the most stimulation from movement.

This is the most common response I hear any time I ask to see a patient’s blood work. They have been told that everything is normal, yet they still feel awful. How could this be the case? This post is specifically about why medical and functional blood analysis is different and absolutely needs to be understood
