Oxygen Set 1
Oxygen is one of the most important keys to good health, but not everyone is aware of it. Currently scientists are examining the role oxygen starvation plays in the development of disease.
THE IMPORTANCE OF OXYGEN
The mechanics of breathing determine oxygen supply. Shallow chest breathing gives rise to oxygen deficiencies, as there are very few blood vessels surrounding the upper lobes of the lungs. Most of the blood vessels surround the lower lobes of the lung. Deep, abdominal breathing is the answer to optimum oxygen levels.
The blood is one of the most important substances in the body. The blood sustains the vital activities and it nourishes the body. Therefore, it keeps the function of the tissues, organs and circulation pathway in good order.
When the blood is cleansed, it has oxygen. When it is dirty, it has more waste or carbon dioxide. The condition of the blood will determine the function and the condition of the organs. The heart, the spleen, the lungs, the liver, the skin, the muscles, all depends on the blood.
Most people breathe shallowly. Tight clothing and a lifetime spent rushing, sitting hunched over desks doing paperwork, studying, working computers and getting stressed out produces the bad habits of shallow breathing. Babies don’t chest breathe. Neither do drunks. They’re both so relaxed they breathe easily and deeply and their tummies rise and fall to the rhythm of this breathing.
For a majority of us, common sense dictates that oxygen is one of the most basic, and most important necessities for life. While we all need to eat, drink and sleep in order to survive, it is the simple act of breathing, filling our lungs, and our blood, with oxygen – that, which is most necessary for life.
However, oxygen does more than simply allow us to continue our existence.
Before we get to the benefits of oxygen , let’s look at the increasing problem of oxygen deficiency today and the symptoms of this problem.
Atmospheric Oxygen Levels
The fact is that in order to be suitable for life – any life; from plants to people, a planet’s atmosphere must have gradually higher densities of oxygen, dependent on the complexity of life supported. Thus, to sustain intelligent and complex life, such as us, an atmosphere requires high levels of oxygen.
Unfortunately, since ancient times, with the growing proliferation of technology in our society, and the decline of natural sources of oxygen such as trees, the increase of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere has been steadily matched by the decrease of oxygen levels.
This means that we aren’t getting enough oxygen – that most important of life’s requirements, from the air we breathe.
So, what does this mean? What are the real medical concerns that we should bear in mind when considering the benefits of oxygen therapy?
Oxygen Deficiency Disease
While oxygen deficiency is not the only cause of these ailments, it is still an influencing factor and treatment such as hyberbaric oxygen therapy can combat oxygen deficiency and reduce the risk of developing cancer and other major diseases.
As discussed by DR. Stephen Levine and Dr. Parris Kidd, oxygen is the source of life and energy to all cells. Body abuse through eating and drinking habits (including pollutants and toxic preservatives in our water and food), air pollution, use of drugs and lack of exercise can greatly reduce the amount of oxygen available to the cells. When there is insufficient oxygen to support the health of a cell, the cell turns to another source of energy called fermentation. This fermentation results in an anaerobic environment, which upsets the metabolism of the cell, and it no longer participates in the healthy functioning of the body. It causes the cells to start manufacturing improper chemicals, and soon a whole group of cells are unhealthy and weak. They lose their natural immune system.
Dr. Parris Kidd has stated that: "Oxygen plays a pivotal role in the functioning of the immune system; ie resistant to disease, bacteria, and viruses." Dr. Stephen Levine has also stated that "We can look at oxygen deficiency as the single greatest cause of all disease." Thus the development of a shortage of oxygen in the blood could very well be the starting point for the loss of the immune system and the beginning of the feared health problems such as cancer, leukemia, AIDS, candida, seizures, and nerve deterioration.
The renowned biochemist and Nobel Prize laureate, Dr.Otto Warburg, confirm this research. He stressed the importance of oxygen especially in its connection to cancer. Dr. Warburg summarized by saying, "The prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the normal oxygen respiration of body cells by an anaerobic cell respiration."
Dr. Freibott explains why oxygen and oxidation is so vital: "It is the lack of oxygen in proper amounts in the system that prevents oxidation and oxygenation, which energized the cells to biological regeneration. These Processes are the foundation of life and death.
"If the normal environment of the cell can be maintained, it will not lose its growth and reproduction potential. Sub-oxygen creates sub-oxidation."
An oxygen deficiency plays an important part in cellular contamination. Oxygen is a powerful detoxifier, and when its quantity is deficient, toxins begin to devastate body functions and delete the body of life-giving energy.
"Without oxygen, there can be no nourishment." Without nourishment, no heat and no energy can be created, and the body cannot purify itself. the unhindered development of this metabolic process results in a circumstance that we call sound health.
Detoxification and Cleansing Effects
Some known medical symptoms of oxygen deficiency are:
Oxygen shortage,Yeast,infections andl
Oxygen levels are also vital in maintaining the balance of "friendly" bacteria over disease-causing bacteria, and other organisms in the body.
With one of the costs of modern life being the reduction of atmospheric oxygen levels through pollution in our air, oxygen can counteract the effects of this on your day-to-day life and provide the following benefits that you will notice:
Are you Getting Enough Oxygen ?
Oxygen plays an important role in the body acting as a guardian and protector against unfriendly bacteria and disease organisms. One of oxygen's major functions is disintegration. Rubble, garbage, toxins, refuse, debris, and anything useless are destroyed by oxygen and carried out of the system. Just as a clean house holds little interest to passing flies, likewise, likewise, an oxygen rich body is a difficult fortress to assail.
Now you can measure your Blood Oxygen Levels
Do you feel tired all the time even though you get eight hours of sleep a night? Do your muscles throb every time you complete a workout even though you exercise every day; or do you experience occasional irritability for no apparent reason? If you answered yes to any of these questions, your problem may be a lack of adequate levels of oxygen in the blood.
Our bodies were designed to operate in an environment that existed hundreds of years ago -- when 30 to 40 percent of the air breathed was oxygen. Due in a large part to pollution, today, oxygen levels are about half that - 20 to 22 percent in most U.S. cities; as low as 15 percent in others.
According to Ed McCabe, author of "Flood Your Body With Oxygen," by living in an oxygen-deficient environment and not feeding our cells the proper oxygen and nutrients needed for cleaning out toxins and wastes, our body fluids and blood can become dirty and toxic. A lack of oxygen to our cells weakens our immune system, which may lead to viral infections, damaged cells, bacterial growths, inflamed joints, serious heart and circulatory problems, toxic buildup in blood and premature aging.
However, if the cells in our bodies are rich in oxygen, mutated cells may be less able to reproduce Other benefits of having adequate levels of oxygen in our systems: increased energy; the ability to maintain healthy cholesterol levels; enhanced brain function; a reduction in stress; the ability to overcome fatigue; and looking and feeling younger.
Now you can measure your Blood Oxygen Levels
Pulse oximetry provides estimates of arterial oxyhemoglobin saturation (SaO2) by utilizing selected wavelengths of light to noninvasively determine the saturation of oxyhemoglobin (SpO2).
Pulse oximetry is a simple non-invasive method of monitoring the percentage of haemoglobin (Hb) which is saturated with oxygen The principle of pulse oximetry is based on the red and infrared light absorption characteristics of oxygenated and deoxygenated hemoglobin. Oxygenated hemoglobin absorbs more infrared light and allows more red light to pass through. Deoxygenated (or reduced) hemoglobin absorbs more red light and allows more infrared light to pass through. Red light is in the 600-750 nm wavelength light band. Infrared light is in the 850-1000 nm wavelength light band.
If your Blood Oxygen levels are low?
Ozone is one of the most energetic and useful agents known to science. Its therapeutic action is due to oxygenation of the blood by the loose molecule (free radical) of oxygen in the O3 compound. It is carried to the various organs and tissues of the body and absorbed, thus oxidizing the waste products, and facilitating their elimination. In other words, ozone increases the metabolism without the expenditure of vital energy and special stress should be laid on the fact that ozone is a NATURAL remedy.>>>Dr. William Turska
Some scientific studies have found that increasing the amount of oxygen in the body alkalizes the it and creates an environment where disease cannot exist. A good way to get oxygen into the body is through water. Past tests have shown that consuming oxygenated water increased the level of the oxygen in the blood. When the blood supply has more oxygen diseases have trouble growing.
Neither cancer cells nor deadly viruses or bacteria
can survive in an oxygen-rich environment. People who
have tried drinking ordinary tap water and then tried
oxygenated water say that they feel a huge difference.
Energy levels, alertness and well being are all reported
to have been positively affected by drinking oxygenated
