The Importance of Oxygen

Of all the chemical elements, oxygen is the most vital to the human body. We would survive for only minutes without oxygen. Oxygen is the life-giving, life-sustaining element. Approximately 90% of the body's energy is created by oxygen. Nearly all of the body's activities, from brain function to elimination, are regulated by oxygen. The ability to think, feel and act is derived from the energy supplied by oxygen.

The way to optimize health is to ensure complete cellular oxygenation. Each of the body's trillions of cells demands oxygen for proper function.

This oxygen-energy cycle has become critically important today, more than at any time in human history, because of the sudden and unnatural decrease in atmospheric oxygen. It has been estimated that the air breathed by our distant ancestors contained approximately 50% oxygen. Two hundred years ago, the air was composed of 38%oxygen and 1% carbon dioxide. The level measured by Swiss scientists in 1945-1946 was 22%. They have been carefully monitoring it ever since. The most recent measurement was 19% with more than 25% carbon dioxide. In our major cities the oxygen level can be lower than 10%! It is clearly of the utmost importance that we begin to significantly increase our intake of oxygen.

The Oxidation Process

Oxidation is a term used to describe the complex process of oxygen combining with various elements in the body to reduce or "burn" them for various purposes. Oxidation is the essential factor in healthy metabolic function, better circulation, assimilation, digestion and elimination. The oxidation process is responsible for purifying the blood, keeping it free from toxic cellular waste accumulation. Adequate oxygen allows the body to recuperate during sleep, strengthening the immune system. Oxygen calms and renews the nervous system. While it has long been suspected that oxygen is the missing link for the healing of disease, this cannot always be directly achieved by oxygen in its O2 form. There is, however, another form of pure oxygen that is able to quickly restore proper oxidative, metabolic and immune function, even with patients wherein these functions have been severely compromised.
