When oxygen levels are increased, the red blood cells and plasma pick up the extra oxygen, and provide it to our body tissues. Waste gases and toxins are removed more efficiently and cells begin to function normally. Anaerobic viruses, bacteria and fungi, unable to live in an oxygen – enriched environment, are compromised. Oxygen builds resistance to infections like yeast (candida albicans) that thrive in an oxygen deficient environment. Oxygen helps to neutralize acids in our body, like lactic acid resulting from muscle overload. Our body’s chemical reactions are “fired-up” due to the increased oxygen levels. We burn fat more efficiently. Sleep often improves. We feel better, our body is healthier and we think more clearly because of increased oxygenation.
Benefits of Oxygen Therapy
Increases stem cell growth
Increases white blood cell production and strength
Significantly shortens the inflammatory process
Increases oxygen levels in tissues (hyperoxia)
Significantly reduces swelling
Significantly reduces edema
Increases the production of collagen
Increases growth of cells that form reparative tissue (fibroblastic proliferation)
Supports scar tissue rehabilitation
Promotes greater tissue strength
Enhances the growth of new blood vessels (angiogenesis)
Increases oxygen perfusion in the area around wounds
Stimulates new capillary growth
Improves the survival of tissues in the ‘grey area’ of crush injuries
Increases production and improves the action of Osteoblasts and Osteoclasts
Improves bone regeneration for faster recovery
Helps prevent infection
Enhances ability of white blood cells to remove bacteria and debris (leukocyte activity)
Destroys harmful bacteria (Antimicrobial effect)
Oxygenation positively affects the Blood Flow
Destroys harmful bacteria and viruses, hepatitis, candidiasis (yeast overgrowth), parasitic infections, mycotoxicosis, etc.
Stimulates the immune system (rheumatoid arthritis) rather than suppresses it.
Improves blood circulation to the capillaries, decreases viscosity and separates the red blood cells; supports peripheral vascular diseases, arrhythmia.
Can improve lung function and improves the ability of red blood cells to pass on oxygen to other tissue in emphysema, asthma, chronic bronchitis etc.
Promotes anti-aging and rejuvenation by increasing oxygen delivery to cells, tissue and organs.
Reduces pain, relaxes tired muscles:fibromyalgia,
Relieves stress and “burnout” – nerves are calmed.
Speeds up the metabolic process (Improves circulation and nutrient delivery within the body) and results in a loss of 200 – 250 calories per session).
Reverses hypoxia (lack of oxygen) in the tissues – gangrene, diabetic infections, AIDS/HIV, etc.
Detoxifies – reduces environmental toxin load and is esp. helpful with environmental hypersensitivity.
