We specifically request to ladies and also extend this request to men, to start taking a daily dose of Iron supplements (This applies to those who have not started to take their iron supplements yet). Females, preferably daily, males may start every other day. Some mild constipation may be present and your stool get dark that is because of the absorption of the iron is not total and some of it goes to waste. The absorbed iron will increase your content of Hemoglobin in your blood, the oxygen carrier. Thus, when we arrive to Huancavelica at almost 12,000 feet above sea level, you may have better capacity to live and work with better oxygenation in your body. If you do not follow this advice-not specified in the CDC guidelines- you will suffer more headache, shortness of breath, fatigue than you may be able to tolerate. Follow the indications of your doctor in this regard as well. Also, unless you are planning to go to the amazon jungle you do not need to take Typhoid nor Yellow Fever. However, you need Hepatitis A & B.
