Medical tourism in Armenia
You may be surprised right now, but Armenia and treatment are inextricable concepts. Surely, you heard something about Caucasian longevity, and you heard that in different regions and countries the inhabitants of mountain settlements are centenarians because of the mountain air, which has a miraculous effect on the body.
Perhaps you also heard about mineral waters which are useful for the body.
About half of Armenia is located at an altitude of 2000 meters above sea level, and the highest point in the country reaches 4095 meters (Mount Aragats). Leaving Zvartnots or Gyumri airports, you will already feel that you are breathing differently.
It would seem that being at altitude leads to a risk of oxygen starvation … However, not everything is so simple. Atmospheric pressure in the mountains drops, in turn, the body, “afraid” of the threat of oxygen starvation, begins to enrich the body with oxygen much faster due to physiological changes. Thus, the enrichment of the body with oxygen begins to approach 98%. And yet, a little-known fact, the number of bacteria and microbes in 1 meter of cubic mountain air is thousands of times less than on the plain. And this means that without specifically doing anything, you can get rid of ENT diseases. And what’s important – the mountain air does not contain dust and allergens!
