Exercise with Oxygen Therapy uses light exercise to oxygenate the patient’s bloodstream.

Cancer cells thrive in oxygen-depleted conditions and cannot survive in oxygen-rich environments. 

During EWOT, an oxygen mask is worn while exercising to help quickly deliver oxygen to the capillaries.

EWOT enables the breathing of 90-96 percent pure oxygen (rather than the 15-20 percent oxygen in the air around us). This is a straightforward approach to enhancing the amount of oxygen in the blood plasma. 

Dr. Manfred Von Ardenne discovered in the 1960s that when the body was combating the consequences of sickness, the cells tended to be oxygen-poor and hence energy inadequate. When cells don’t get enough oxygen, they become weaker and weaker, and the individual suffers as a result.


How Does EWOT Work?


The heart pumps plasma-dissolved oxygen into the small capillaries and then into the cells during exercise while breathing in this 90-96 percent pure oxygen, reaching even inflammatory areas with poor circulation.

As a result, the body’s cells are saturated with oxygen, nutrients, and anti-inflammatory chemicals — a formidable combination for fighting inflammation. 


What are the Benefits of EWOT?

For more than a half-century, EWOT has been used successfully to manage medical conditions and, more recently, to improve fitness and athletic performance levels. It is a safe and effective way to increase energy and improve health when done correctly.

The health benefits of EWOT include but are not limited to:

  • Increased levels of oxygen to tissues and cells
  • Restores blood flow to damaged tissues
  • Promotes recovery and healing
  • Enhances athletic performance
  • Improves recovery from stress-related illnesses
  • Raises energy levels
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Improved endurance
  • Increases production of ATP


What Can One Expect During an EWOT Session? 


Exercise for 15 minutes at least three times per week. Exercise is done using a stationary bike, treadmill, elliptical, or any other type of exercise equipment that does not require excessive head movement.

Sprint for about 30 seconds during the 15-minute session until the heart rate is around 120 beats per minute (or 80 percent of the maximum).

Then, for about three minutes, return to a normal exercise rhythm and heart rate.

Repeat the cycle 3–5 times more to increase vasodilation and open the arteries, allowing oxygen to reach the oxygen-deprived tissues.

Since the heart rate is increasing, the oxygen circulates quicker throughout the body.

Optimum Health Essentials has provided a detailed explanation of what an EWOT session entails. This video clearly shows how a session can restore blood flow, increase circulation, and increase ATP production.


Risks and Side Effects of Oxygen Therapy

EWOT has no risks or side effects when performed correctly and for no more than 15 minutes. Higher oxygen levels are considered safe, and there is no risk of oxygen toxicity.

Many patients just starting EWOT may experience side effects due to the abrupt change in their physical activity levels.

People who haven’t exercised in a long time and don’t have the physical stamina to endure a 15-minute session should start slowly and consult their doctor first.


EWOT and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy – Are They The Same?


EWOT and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) are often confused, but they differ significantly. HBOT involves breathing pressurized oxygen in a chamber for around 90 minutes under supervision, while EWOT uses an easy-to-assemble system at home, incorporating exercise to pump more oxygen to tissues, completing sessions in just 15 minutes. EWOT is a more cost-effective and time-efficient alternative to HBOT.


IS EWOT Safe for Cancer Patients?


The link between low oxygen levels (hypoxia) and cancer has been extensively studied. EWOT involves using a mask to deliver oxygen swiftly through the capillaries, the small blood vessels facilitating fluid and gas exchange between tissues and blood.

People opt for EWOT during cancer recovery because cancer cells struggle to survive in oxygen-rich environments. Conversely, they thrive in low-oxygen settings, as shown by Warburg’s research demonstrating that cells can become cancerous through oxygen deprivation.

With EWOT, the body can establish an oxygen-rich environment, aiding recovery by eliminating hypoxia, eliminating toxins, and optimizing performance. EWOT can expedite recovery and reduce the adverse effects of treatments like chemotherapy and radiation therapy.

Moreover, EWOT enhances energy levels, crucial during cancer recovery, preventing muscle loss (sarcopenia) and boosting the immune system – all beneficial aspects for a faster recuperation.


EWOT-Related Research


  • Over 70 years ago, Warburg showed that cells could always be made cancerous by subjecting them to periods of hypoxia.
  • In metastatic cells that have spread to other parts of the body, rapid cell growth can make low oxygen levels worse, creating a harmful cycle.
  • Tumors with higher levels of oxygen are linked to better chances of survival. In a study with 22 patients having nonmetastatic, high-grade, soft tissue sarcomas, those with tumors measuring more than 10 mm Hg had a 70% disease-free survival rate after 18 months, while those with less than 10 mm Hg had only a 35% rate.
  • With the 15-minute EWOT sessions and desiccated thymus pills, precancerous skin lesions were unprimed within 10 months.
