Oxygen is the unseen element of our universe that awakens our body, mind and spirit.  Without it, we die.

 

 

The Importance of Oxygen

 

     Virtually every patient's room in a modern hospital is equipped for the administration of oxygen.  Every emergency room is required by law to have the same equipment.  Deep breathing exercises are prescribed for patients with lung problems and for persons recovering for surgery.  The narrow application of these techniques is very unfortunate.  They should be routine for every person.
     The average person takes their respiration for granted.  There are large Eastern religions who incorporate consciousness of breathing as an important teaching in their religious instruction.  Indians refer to 'prana' as a wonderful substance that God has provided for a healthy life.  It seems certain that prana is ozone.
     Deep breathing exercises carry greater importance today than ever before, because of the lowered amount of oxygen in the air in our cities.  The effect of gradual oxygen deprivation on metabolism is devastating and leads to a greater production, and an inadequate processing, of the toxic wastes that our bodies produce daily.  One of the consequences of a lowered oxygen supply is the elevation of uric acid in the body.  This causes a wide variety of metabolic problems.
     The most common disease associated with a uric acid disorder is gout and it is primarily due to an inability to fully process meat protein.  However, almost every system of the body is detrimentally affected.  The formation of kidney stones and gall bladder stones, the blocking of circulation, and the destruction of joints by the formation of crystalline deposits are just a few of the serious problems that arise.
     There are hundreds of known biochemical reactions in the body that utilize oxygen.  Acute deprivation of oxygen (hypoxia) leads to a rapid death; however with lowered oxygen levels and seditary lifestyles we are simply getting there more slowly.The impairment of oxidative processes is directly related to the development and progress of cancer.
     The use of ozone in the treatment of cancer addresses the problem of cellular hypoxia, or oxygen starvation, and has wide systemic effect’s  The efficacy of this treatment has been proven over the last fifty years in Germany.

 

Oxygen Is Known To:

 

  • Inactivate many types of anaerobic viruses, bacteria, yeast, fungi and protozoa.

  • Oxidize lactic acid, relax and loosen muscles, and increase muscle flexibility.

  • Oxidize adrenaline, producing an overall calm and preventing the pleomorphic changes in the internal flora, which can lead to disease.

  • Oxidize toxins so they can be eliminated though the skin, kidneys and colon.

  • Stimulate vasodilation of blood vessels, boosting circulation, relieving pain and helping injured muscles to repair more quickly.

  • Stimulate the immune system.

  • Normalize hormone and enzyme production.

  • Improves brain function and memory.

 

How We Become Oxygen Deficient:

 

  • Stress in any form increases our oxygen needs.  Stress from illness or infection, from toxic pollution and emotional stress can lead to a reduction in oxygen as the body attempts to detoxify itself or fight hostile bacteria.

  • Lower oxygen levels in the earth's atmosphere. The earth's air used to be almost 40% oxygen, compared to as low as 12% in some places now.

  • Devitalized, processed foods deplete the body's oxygen supply.

  • Use of drugs contributes to toxic build-up and suppressed immune function.

  • Breathing patterns and habits affect the amount of oxygen our bodies absorb.

  • Irregular aerobic exercise decreases oxygenation to the entire body.

Oxygen is needed to feel stronger, healthier and more alive.  When we have this sense of well being, we are more able to perform daily tasks and deal with challenges with greater resilience and sense of purpose.

 

 

"The Breath of Life"

 

"The link between insufficient oxygen and disease has been firmly established.  Insufficient oxygen means insufficient biological energy that can result in anything from mild fatigue to life threatening diseases.  The evidence is overwelming.  Oxygen plays a powerful, primary role in our health and well being.  The more oxygen we have in our system, the more energy we produce.  Understanding this is more important today than ever before, because of a general deficiency of oxygen intake.  Simply put, the best way to optimize health is to be sure that we oxygenate every cell in our body."
