GASPING FOR AIR
Lack of oxygen to the body's cells is recently being understood as a contributing factor in the development and progression of cancer. Persons who breathe shallowly - not taking in a full breath each time they inhale - live in a polluted environment, or any other circumstances where the lungs are not able to fully expand, is part of the problem. Your body is composed of four main elements making up 96% of your body weight - 3% nitrogen, 10% hydrogen, 18% carbon and 65% oxygen. As you inhale, these elements are taken into your lungs, where they are then distributed throughout your blood via the hemoglobin.
When there is a lack of oxygen in the body, the cells will then turn to a source of energy called fermentation. This anaerobic (meaning without oxygen) process causes the cells to start manufacturing improper chemicals, creating unhealthy, weak cells which lose their inherent immune properties. Dr. Parris Kidd stated, "Oxygen plays a pivotol role in the proper functioning of the immune system; ie resistance to disease, bacteria and viruses." Dr. Stephen Levine said, "We can look at oxygen deficiency as the SINGLE greatest cause of all disease." Nobel Prize laureate, Dr. Otto Warburg is quoted as saying, "The prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the normal oxygen respiration of body cells by an anaerobic cell respiration." He also proved that the growth of cancer is inhibited in an adequately oxygenated body. Oxygen is also a powerful detoxifier, as it is key to breaking down excess or toxic materials in your body.
Various oxidants are a common part of many therapies. Stabilized oxides of chloride are the most reliable, although that was not always the case. Chloride oxides are non-toxic over 10 times normal therapeutic values, two atoms of nascent oxygen per molecule compared to only one in hydrogen peroxide, half life is about 12 hours, and does not promote free radical activity in the body. Ozone has a short half life and lung tissue toxicity is a major problem. Hydrogen peroxide has high toxicity, short half life and generates free radicals.
Internally taken, liquid oxygen is reported to have the following effects: oxidizes environmental chemicals, stimulates white blood cell activity, is antiviral, antifungal, antiparasitic and antibacterial, lessen emphysema, sinus problems, and asthma. It may also help improve circulation and energy. Some reports indicate that it is a useful adjunct in treatment of candida albicans. (Candida is a yeast overgrowth in the intestinal tract which can impair immune system function and release toxins - specifically acetaldehyde - which in large quantities can damage cells, disrupt intestinal absorption, impair white and red blood cell functions. It thrives in a low oxygen environment.) In red blood cell clumping, it may help separate them after about one hour. Adding 5 drops of liquid oxygen to drinking water will remove chlorine and kill bacteria and organisms. Used with toothpaste or as a mouthwash, it can help in cases of gum disease.
There are many reasons and causes for our body's low oxygen uptake: poor diet, environmental pollutants, lack of exercise, emotional stress, physical trauma, infections, drugs, chronic illness and the fact that oxygen levels in our atmosphere are decreasing daily. A body that is too acidic (pH below 7.35) in those who consume more than 20% protein, or coffee and carbonated drinks will use up more oxygen than those with a more alkaline (pH 7.35-7.45) body.
Although this is just a small, or thumbnail, overview of liquid oxygen I hope it will stimulate further research on your part. I find it useful as a part of my daily regimen, along with integrating it in my discussions with clients in considering options for their possible complementary choices.
