    Ahh I didn't take elevation into a factor. That makes sense.

    I lives in a mountain too but here temps are 26°-30° C during the day and 18-20° C at night.
    Compared with the 14°C during the day at my mom's friend house.
    It's much better temps here at my house.

    Another thing you can do to help with stress/ dehydration and vitamins is get organic carrot juice (my local publix has it) and do a 1:1 ratio with either spring or well water and give keto a nice good soak every other day for a while. My babies dont really like to eat carrot so i force it with a bath because they do need it.
