Oxygen Therapy and Oxidants
When oxygen levels are deficient, you are at a
greater risk of developing a wide range of diseases, including cancer,
infectious diseases, and circulatory problems. Various types of
oxygen therapy have been successfully used to prevent and treat
these conditions. Two of the easiest ways to improve oxygenation
are aerobic exercise and deep-breathing. Both of these practices
can easily be incorporated into your daily health routine.
Breathing slowly and deeply allows you to take in large amounts
of oxygen. Full expansion of the lungs in a relaxed, rhythmic way
facilitates maximal oxygen uptake by the body. This type of breathing
strengthens the abdomen and chest, relaxes the body, and allows
for the most efficient oxygenation.
Aerobic exercise increases the amount of oxygen contained in the
body and facilitates proper circulation and nutrient flow. It allows
blood and oxygen to reach chronically contracted areas of muscle
tension and facilitates the removal of waste products such as carbon
monoxide, lactic acid, and other toxins. Aerobic exercise also improves
posture, which increases oxygenation through structural realignment.
(Recent studies have also indicated that women who engage in regular
exercise have a 40% reduction in the incidence of breast cancer.)
Other forms of oxygen therapy include ozone therapy, hydrogen peroxide,
and hyperbaric oxygen therapy (only administered under medical guidance).
Ozone therapy is one of the most powerful oxygenating and anticancer
techniques available, providing the body with large amounts of supplemental
oxygen. It is used in many European countries including Germany
and Switzerland. Ozone therapy is available in the US in complimentary
health clinics in states like Nevada, New York, Washington, Alaska,
and Oklahoma where it is used in combination with other anticancer
therapies such as dietary and nutritional supplement programs.
For home use, ozone air-purification machines can be used to purify
and clean the air that you breathe, and ozone water-purification
devices can remove chlorine from tap water while increasing its
