EWOT – Exercise with Oxygen Therapy

hahahaThe Benefits of Oxygen

The three basic nutrients without which planet earth could not exist as a home for living things are: light, water, and oxygen. Everybody knows that walking in fresh air does you good. It promotes the capacity of thinking and improves efficiency. A deep breath raises our energy levels within a short time. Even after physical exercises we feel more active and fresh although a lot of energy has been used up.

One major reason for aging is the failure of enzymatic systems that are responsible for our body’s uptake and utilization of oxygen. When our cells don’t get enough oxygen, they degenerate and die.  Lack of mobility, infections and toxins make our oxygen status worse and this worsening produces illness. This degeneration is connected with a noticeable reduction of physical and mental powers, especially in old age. Lack of oxygen causes a critical decrease of the cardiac output; less oxygen is transported through the body. For example, the oxygen supply of 80 year-old person can go down as far as 66% of the maximum amount.  Human beings can take a lot of punishment, mentally and physically, so these frequent drops in our ability to utilize oxygen efficiently are not going to kill anyone immediately. But each level of oxygen deprivation takes its toll, and if a few cells die here and there due to constant external (or internal) stress, it begins to add up. The end result is premature aging.  So, if a simple system can be used that constantly provides the body with additional oxygen, these stress factors can be, to a certain extent, neutralized. With EWOT that system is easily available. EWOT (pronounced ee-watt) stands for Exercise With Oxygen Therapy. This method of prolonging your life is so simple that it’s hard to believe it could work, but it does.

whatAfter even 15 minutes of EWOT, there is a dramatic ‘pinking up’ of a patient’s skin. This can be seen easily by simple observation, and illustrates that the tiny capillaries (vessels tinier than a strand of hair) are carrying extra oxygen to cells of the body. Presumably every organ is being bathed in these extra amounts of life-sustaining oxygen.

EWOT technique is very simple to employ. You should wear light, comfortable clothing with EWOT. As your doctor, I will first determine your level of physical fitness. If you are quite fit, you might begin by exercising on an upper body ergometer (UBE) which is like a bicycle for the arms, or on an elliptical exerciser for 15 minutes while breathing oxygen from an oxygen concentrator. If you are less conditioned, you may have to work up to using the UBE or elliptical exerciser, very often by beginning EWOT with vibration instead. Before and after treatment we will monitor your heart rate, oxygen concentration, and blood pressure.

For the prescribed period of time, you simply perform your exercise, all the while breathing in 90-95% oxygen from an oxygen concentrator.

After EWOT, you’ll find yourself invigorated, renewed, and clear-headed. EWOT can be used therapeutically via multiple sessions over a short period of time for acute therapy, or employed periodically over a longer period of time to treat chronic stress, injury or illness.
