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 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.
