Life can be defined as the constant regeneration of cells. There are roughly, give or take a few, one quadrillion (1,000,000,000,000,000) cells making up your body. And they are constantly regenerating – in the time it takes you to read this sentence, about two million brand new cells have been created. Oxygen is vital to cell regeneration and without it regeneration turns to degeneration. Our bodies consist of 73% Oxygen. Oxygen is the most abundant element on earth. It is our most vital and most important food – we need it and we need it regularly and abundantly. Oxygen is our best friend – not only is it our main fuel for life, it is our main weapon against illness and infection. The basic mechanism is that everything to do with our well being is aerobic – Oxygen loving, while all hostile microbes, viruses, bacteria, fungi, and diseased growths are anaerobic which means they hate Oxygen and cannot survive in its presence!
Many illnesses and conditions have been successfully treated using Oxygen Therapies, including: Constipation, Irritable Bowel Syndrome/Spastic Colon, Obesity, Chronic Fatigue, Asthma, Emphysema, Diabetes, Arthritis/Rheumatism/Osteoporosis, Herpes, Cancer, Aids, High and Low Blood Pressure, Headaches/Migraines, Poor Circulation, Gout, Bronchitis, Tuberculosis, Pneumonia, Cirrhosis, Jaundice, Blood Disorders, and most other viral/bacterial/fungal infections.
More than anything else, optimal health and well being is dependent on the maximum production, maintenance and flow of energy, which is produced by Oxygen. Oxygen purifies the blood; keeping it free from cellular toxic waste build up. Sufficient Oxygen gives the body a chance to rebuild itself, to recuperate during sleep and strengthen its immune system – our natural defense against disease. It also has a calming and energising effect on the nervous system.
Insufficient Oxygen means insufficient biological energy that can result in anything from mild fatigue to life threatening disease. The research of Dr. Harry Goldblatt determined that lack of Oxygen plays a major role in causing cells to become cancerous. In the absence of a normal oxidation (i.e. “burning up”) process, the cells are incapable of burning cell waste, which contributes to disease. His findings were published in the Journal of Experimental Medicine in 1953. It is stated most definitely by Dr. Steven Levine: “Hypoxia, or lack of Oxygen in the tissues, is the fundamental cause for all degenerative disease.” (Anti-oxidant Adaptation: Its Role in Free Radical Pathology, 1985).
When the body has ample Oxygen, it produces enough energy to ensure ideal metabolic functioning with complete elimination of accumulated toxic wastes in the tissues. Natural immunity is achieved when the immune system is not burdened with heavy toxic waste build-up. The colon is responsible for elimination of waste and assimilation of nutrients. If the walls of the colon become hardened with waste residue due to poor diet, it creates a condition of putrefaction (i.e. impacted matter on the colon walls) and gas, which ferments and slowly poisons the body. Dr. Roy de Welles; authority on diseases of the colon, presented research evidence in 1937 that Oxygen destroys the putrefaction and disease causing anaerobic (i.e. “Oxygen hating”) bacteria in the colon. Detoxification occurs when Oxygen is introduced into the system. Oxygen is the key to life!
The most common Oxygen Therapies are Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide (35%) and, the more powerful; Magnesium Peroxide.
Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide (35%)
The purpose of Hydrogen Peroxide is to help the immune system to function properly. The granulocytes; a class of white blood cells that fight infection, produce Hydrogen Peroxide. This compound is also important in the process of breaking down carbohydrates, fats, proteins, minerals, and vitamins in order to release the body’s energy. It helps regulate hormones and is necessary in the production of estrogen, progesterone, and thyroxin. When the body is attacked by viruses, harmful bacteria, various fungi, or parasites, the immune system goes into action, which often depletes the body’s ability to produce Hydrogen Peroxide, and, consequently, robs the cells of much needed Oxygen. Hydrogen Peroxide has a definite metabolic effect on the body – it encourages the chemical and physical processes in the body, combining with Iodine to maintain a healthily functioning thyroid gland. It also stimulates Dopamine; a neurotransmitter that is necessary for proper nerve function in the brain. It mimics the hormone Insulin in the body – Insulin is essential in the treatment of Diabetes. Hydrogen Peroxide aids blood and lymph vessels throughout the body. It both supports vasodilation; the widening of cerebral and coronary arteries and peripheral vessels, and helps prevent vasoconstriction; the narrowing of blood vessels. Hydrogen Peroxide also has the capacity to help increase Oxygenation in pulmonary or lung tissue. It also stimulates gamma interferon; a protein that inhibits the growth of viruses. It can also help to manage an inflammatory response in the body – when tissues or organs become inflamed in response to an infection.
Magnesium Peroxide is, in fact, Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide (35%), combined with the mineral of Magnesium to produce Magnesium Peroxide; a powerful, yet, as importantly; stable form of Oxygen delivery to the cells. In capsule form, Magnesium Peroxide provides a more sustained release function. All the same benefits as Hydrogen Peroxide, yet known to be more powerful and gentler on the system – in particular for those patients who may have a sensitive constitution.
