Get stronger, Live Longer, Look Better.

Exercise with Oxygen Therapy is more than just therapy.

Sure, it started out as a way to extend the time for the elderly and the recuperating to do their exercies and rehabilitation, but did you know? EWOT can also help you workout less for more results, increase your speed and even lose weight faster.

More benefits of EWOT are being discovered as more people are using it.

Lose weight faster because you can workout longer without fatigue. Build muscle faster and increase stamina faster because you don’t “run out of breath”. Think you are too old to exercise? Not with this method of oxygenation. Want to find that perfect butt you had in college? We know where it is.

Athletes are discovering the benefits of building stamina and speed with EWOT to improve their performance on the field, in the pool, and on the track. EWOT works like a performance enhancing substance, and it is. The ingredients are oxygen (lots of it) and exercise. And its FREE.

Red cell 2,3-diphosphoglycerate and oxygen affinity.

The ease with which haemoglobin releases oxygen to the tissues is controlled by erythrocytic 2,3-diphosphoglycerate (2,3-DPG) such that an increase in the concentration of 2,3-DPG decreases oxygen affinity and vice versa. This review article describes the synthesis and breakdown of 2,3-DPG in the Embden-Meyerof pathway in red cells and briefly explains the molecular basis for its effect on oxygen affinity. Interaction of the effects of pH, Pco2, temperature and 2,3-DPG on the oxyhaemoglobin dissociation curve are discussed. The role of 2,3-DPG in the intraerythrocytic adaptation to various types of hypoxaemia is described. The increased oxygen affinity of blood stored in acid-citrate-dextrose (ACD) solution has been shown to be due to the decrease in the concentration of 2,3-DPG which occurs during storage. Methods of maintaining the concentration of 2,3-DPG in stored blood are described. The clinical implication of transfusion of elderly people, anaemic or pregnant patients with ACD stored blood to anaesthetically and surgically acceptable haemoglobin concentrations are discussed. Hypophosphataemia in association with parenteral feeding reduces 2,3-DPG concentration and so increases oxygen affinity. Since post-operative use of intravenous fluids such as dextrose or dextrose/saline also lead to hypophosphataemia, the addition of inorganic phosphorus to routine post-operative intravenous fluid may be advisable. Disorders of acid-base balance effect oxygen affinity not only by the direct effect of pH on the oxyhaemoglobin dissociation curve but by its control of 2,3-DPG metabolism. Management of acid-base disorders and pre-operative aklalinization of patients with sickle cell disease whould take account of this. It is known that anaesthesia alters the position of the oxyhaemoglobin dissociation curve, but it is thought that this is independent of any effects which anaesthetic agents may have on 2,3-DPG concentration. In vitro manipulation of 2,3-DPG concentration with steroids has already been carried out. Elucidation of the role of 2,3-DPG in the control of oxygen affinity may ultimately lead to iatrogenic manipulation of oxygen affinity in vivo.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy vs EWOT and Improving Stem Cells.

Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy is an exciting medical treatment approved by the FDA and AMA which enhances tissue levels of life giving oxygen. Normally, oxygen is almost exclusively carried by red blood cells. During HBO therapy, there is a substantial increase in the amount of oxygen carried in all body fluids including plasma, cerebrospinal fluid, lymph, and intracellular fluids. This allows increased oxygen levels even in areas with poor or compromised blood supply as well as in areas of tissue damage. Increasing tissue oxygen levels produces several important long term therapeutic benefits including enhanced growth of new blood vessels, increased ability of white blood cells to destroy bacteria and remove toxins, increase growth of fibroblasts (cells involved in wound healing), and enhanced metabolic activity of previously marginally functioning cells including brain neurons.

According to a recent study published in the American Journal of Physiology-Heart and Circulation Physiology, (http://ajpheart.physiology.org) hyperbaric oxygen treatments increases by 800% the number of stem cells circulating in a patient’s body. Stem cells, also called progenitor cells, are important players in repairing the body after injury and in tissue regeneration. Stem cells exist in the bone marrow and are capable of changing their characteristics to become part of many different organs and tissues. When a body part is injured, stem cells are mobilized and provide the cells necessary for the healing process to occur.  If you are doing PRP, Prolotherapy, Prolozone, or Adipose Derived Stem Cell you need stem cells to be activated and energized by oxygen at some level. The more activation and differentiation the better cell and tissue repair.  Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) provides an important trigger or stimulus for this mobilization.

 Penn Study Finds Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatments Mobilize Stem Cells.

ScienceDaily (Dec. 28, 2005) — According to a study to be published in the American Journal of Physiology-Heart and Circulation Physiology, a typical course of hyperbaric oxygen treatments increases by eight-fold the number of stem cells circulating in a patient’s body. Stem cells, also called progenitor cells are crucial to injury repair. The study currently appears on-line and is scheduled for publication in the April 2006 edition of the American Journal.

Take a look at a video I have done on the science behind EWOT. 

“This is the safest way clinically to increase stem cell circulation, far safer than any of the pharmaceutical options,” said Stephen Thom, MD, Ph.D., Professor of Emergency Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine, lead author of the study. “This study provides information on the fundamental mechanisms for hyperbaric oxygen and offers a new theoretical therapeutic option for mobilizing stem cells… We reproduced the observations from humans in animals in order to identify the mechanism for the hyperbaric oxygen effect.”

This is great news for HBO therapy but what about EWOT?

So HBO works in a different way then EWOT. HBO is passive and the pressure drives the oxygen into the tissues. EWOT super saturates the plasma which drives more oxygen into the tissues. This extra oxygen is then used by the body. One of the uses they discovered was that it worked to clear out these trapped blood proteins that can clog the capillaries. I like EWOT as it is active and works with physiology. There has been no studies on the use of EWOT and stem cell directly but one would conclude that the benefit would be similar. My feelings are that EWOT would be better only because one could do this daily in your home. Doing EWOT for a couple weeks before and after a procedure would make sense to me. We use this protocol at our office many times with our patients. I made a DVD and Manuel that outlines the protocol and the supplies and supplements necessary to do EWOT correctly.

Increasing the oxygen saturation of the blood and tissues can be approached from a number of different directions simultaneously:

Increasing the oxygen saturation of the blood and tissues can be approached from a number of different directions simultaneously:

1. Fresh air. Increase the amount of oxygen in the air you breathe by allowing fresh air into every room of your home, office and transportation. Open your windows. Install a Heat Recovery Ventilation System (HRVS) or Energy Recovery Ventilation System. By connecting the HRVS into your furnace ducts, you can provide temperature moderated fresh air to the entire home economically in every season.

2. Breathe deeply. Improper breathing causes oxygen deficiency. Use the full capacity of your lungs by expanding both the chest and abdomen. Pause for a few seconds between each inhalation and exhalation. Practice deep breathing for a few minutes every day. If you feel depressed, try breathing more deeply (Other suggestions for fighting depression may be found on our Sunlight page.). Learn Pranayama (comfortable breathing exercise) and practice for a few minutes before meditating.

3. Aerobic exercise increases the capacity of the heart to pump blood and increases the capacity of the lungs.

4. Eat smaller nutrient-dense meals (no empty-calorie junk food). Overeating causes oxygen deficiency. Do you feel tired after a big meal? Vitamin F (essential fatty acids) increases the oxygen carrying capacity of the hemoglobin (red blood cells), and restores cell membranes to proper functioning. Eat fresh foods and avoid decomposing (rotten) foods. Eat an alkaline diet and create an alkaline condition in the body.

5. Follow Dr. Dean Ornish’s 4 step program to clean out your arteries (low fat vegetarian diet, exercise, non-smoking, meditation). Clean arteries will maximize the amount of oxygen-rich blood reaching the tissues. 

6. Antioxidants help the body use oxygen more efficiently.  Raja’s Cup coffee substitute, Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) which is found in the greenest plants, co-enzyme Q10, organic germanium (a trace mineral), thioctic acid, taheebo/pau d’arco, vitamin C, natural source vitamin E, vitamin A, retin-A (a form of vitamin A), ginseng. Wheat germ is a good source of vitamin E. Oxy-Powder contains organic germanium as one of its ingredients.

7. Avoid carbon monoxide (vehicle exhaust, fumes from gas stoves & heaters) that reduces the oxygen carrying capacity of the blood. Fluoride also interferes with oxygen uptake (Donsbach, page 30). Alcohol and drugs rob the body of oxygen because the body must oxidize these substances during the process of their removal (McCabe, pages 86-87). 

8. Consume supplementary oxygen from other sources such as oxygenated drinking water, fresh foods and juices, magnesium oxide, magnesium dioxide, magnesium peroxide, magnesium hydroxide (“milk of magnesia”). “We also know that when H2O2 is taken into the body (orally or intravenously) the oxygen content of the blood and body tissues increases dramatically.” – Dr. David Williams.

9. Bathe in oxygenated water. Add one pint to one quart of 3% hydrogen peroxide to your bath water and soak in it. Be sure your bath water is free of chlorine (chlorine causes cancer). You can remove the chlorine by putting a filter on the shower head and fill the tub via the shower.

10. Practice EWOT therapy. Exercise With Oxygen Therapy (EWOT) is doing light exercise, such as on a treadmill or stationary bicycle, while breathing pure oxygen. EWOT produces the benefits of intravenous hydrogen peroxide therapy and you can do it at home. Set the O2 flow at 6 liters per minute, hook the little tube to your nose, and exercise at a moderate pace for 15 minutes while breathing pure oxygen. As part of your cancer prevention and health maintenance program, you can do this once a month. If you are ill with any disease, do EWOT more frequently. In particular, do EWOT after operations, chemotherapy, radiation treatment, x-rays, and burns. – Dr. William Campbell Douglass.

Bottled oxygen is generally a prescription item. However, you can purchase for home use an “oxygen concentrator” such as is used in “oxygen bars”.    

11. Practice hyperthermia. Hyperthermia increases circulation and removes toxins from the body via excessive sweating. One way carcinogens cause cancer is by attaching to cell membranes, thereby suffocating the cell even when adequate oxygen is otherwise available.

12. Intravenous hydrogen peroxide is inexpensive, safe and easy for a physician to administer (Altman, page 2). Also, with the help of a physician, you might try UBI (ultraviolet blood irradiation) therapy, which can produce a 50% increase in venous oxygenation within 10 minutes. This oxygenation is in the blood plasma, as there is no change in the number of red cells. – Dr. William Campbell Douglass (See Dr. Douglass’s books in the recommended reading list below).

Daily Humming is Good For You. Humming while doing EWOT? Hum?

Daily Humming is Good For You

During humming, the gas exchange between the nasal passages and the sinuses is 98 percent, almost a complete exchange. During normal exhalation, without humming, the gas exchange rate is only 4 percent.

Poor gas exchange and poor circulation in the sinus cavities create a good environment for bacterial growth. Researchers suggest that daily humming could help reduce the incidence of sinusitis and upper respiratory infections.

Also, sinuses are major producers of nitric oxide, which helps dilate capillaries and increase blood flow. When nitric oxide levels are measured during humming, researchers find that they are 15 times higher than during normal breathing.

Causes of Cellular Damage, Mitochondria and oxygen therapy.

Causes of Cellular Damage

There are many things that can damage a cell and its mitochondria. These include oxygen deprivation, nutritional imbalances, physical trauma, toxic chemicals, allergic reactions, radiation, infections, parasites, and more. Lack of essential fatty acids directly damages cell membranes because cell membranes are made of these lipids. When the essential fatty acids are missing from the diet, cells have no choice but to substitute inappropriate fats into their structure, resulting in type II diabetes and perhaps cancer. If the cellular damage involves mitochondria, thereby interfering with production of ATP, then this can cause significant damage to the cell because ATP is needed for important cellular processes such as membrane transport, lipogenesis and protein synthesis. With damaged mitochondria, for its very survival the cell has no choice but to revert to the more primitive system of anaerobic respiration that is characteristic of cancer cells. Sometimes the damage is reversible, in which case the cell can be healed. Sometimes the damage is irreversible, and a way must be found to destroy the cell. Also, the causes of harm to the cells must be removed to prevent repeated damage or damage to additional cells. For more information, do an Internet search for mitochondrial damage, tissue injury, etc.

***

Nutrients for Healthy Mitochondria

Oxygen is necessary for cellular respiration and energy production, but it must be carefully handled within the cell or the mitochondria will be damaged. Five nutrients necessary to restore and maintain healthy mitochondria are:

  • L-carnitine - for the proper oxidation of fats within cells
  • Coenzyme Q10 - is necessary for the synthesis of ATP, and prevents free radical damage within the cell 
  • Alpha lipoic acid - helps regenerate vitamins E and C after they are oxidized 
  • Vitamin E - protects cell membranes from free radical damage. Try to get non-synthetic vitamin E.
  • Vitamin C - inhibits the oxidation of cholesterol and supports production of the antioxidant glutathione.

These nutrients should be available in your local health food store. Dr. Stephen Sinatra frequently writes about these nutrients in his newsletter. His website is www.DrSinatra.com. Dr. Sinatra recommends Earthing and considers Earthing to be the original anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant. By regularly grounding the body to the earth, the body is provided with a lifetime supply of free electrons that neutralize free radicals.

L-carnitine is made in the body from the amino acid lysine. Lysine is destroyed by heat, so you will only get it from raw foods. Cold-processed whey powder is a good source of amino acids. Coenzyme Q10 is found in sardines, eggs, whole grains, spinach and many other foods. If you take coenzyme Q10 supplements, look for Ubiquinol which is the form that the body uses rather than the less effective Ubiquinone which the body must convert to Ubiquinol in order to use it. Food sources of Alpha lipoic acid include spinach, broccoli, tomatoes, peas, Brussels sprouts, and rice bran. Vitamin E is found in whole grains, nuts, seeds, asparagus, spinach and other green leafy vegetables. Vitamin C is found in fruits, berries, and tomatoes.

Many drugs deplete coenzyme Q10.

***

Vitamin C is needed for the synthesis of carnitine, which is required for long-chain fatty acids to enter mitochondria where they are used for energy production. - Annals of Internal Medicine 114:909-910, 1991. Most cancer patients are deficient in vitamin C.

The conversion of vitamin C into carnitine takes place in the liver. If you have cancer, your liver is probably not functioning properly. Charlotte Gerson claims that people do not get cancer until liver function has been reduced to about one third. There are things you can do to restore liver health.

Cellular Metabolism is Controlled by Thyroid Hormones

The rate of cellular metabolism and energy production is regulated by thyroid hormones. These hormones are deficient in many people because their body has insufficient iodine to produce them. The result is fatigue, depression, overweight, dry skin, cold hands or feet, hair loss, brittle nails, puffy eyes, constipation, brain damage and a lower IQ. There is a simple way to correct iodine deficiency that you can read about here.

However, even if you have enough iodine, you may still have insufficient thyroid hormones due to the presence of iodine blockers in your diet. Chlorine and fluoride are iodine blockers commonly added to municipal drinking water. Bromide is an iodine blocker used to bleach white flour for bread. These chemicals compete with the uptake of iodine and slow the production of essential thyroid hormones. Certain foods have the same effect, such as soy products that can interfere with the absorption and assimilation of iodine. For healthy cellular metabolism, you need a healthy thyroid gland producing abundant thyroid hormones.

***

In the body, iodine is displaced by fluorine, chlorine and bromine. These four minerals are known as “halogens”. The smaller the atomic weight, the more reactive is the element. Here are the atomic weights of the four halogens:

fluorine 18.99

chlorine 35.45

bromine 79.90

iodine 126.70

***

“Fluoride causes more human cancer, and causes it faster, than any other chemical.”
-  Dean Burk, Chief Chemist Emeritus, U.S. National Cancer Institute

“CDC and ADA Now Advise to Avoid Using Fluoride”

“Cancer risk among people drinking chlorinated water is as much as 93% higher than among those whose water does not contain chlorine.”
- U.S. Council Of Environmental Quality

“In the 1960s mandated iodine containing dough was equivalent to the RDA of 150 ug per slice of bread. At that time the incidence of breast cancer was only 1 in 20. In the past 20 years the use of iodine supplementation in bread was eliminated and a goiter producing substance toxic to the thyroid gland (bromine) was introduced as replacement for iodine. The risk for breast cancer is now 1 in 8 and this risk is increasing by one percent each year.”
- Dr. James Howenstine, MD

“There is growing evidence that Americans would have better health and a lower incidence of cancer and fibrocystic disease of the breast if they consumed more iodine. A decrease in iodine intake coupled with an increased consumption of competing halogens, fluoride and bromide, has created an epidemic of iodine deficiency in America.”
- Donald W. Miller, Jr., MD

***

“It is of interest to note that breast tissue contains lactoperoxydase which is capable of oxydation and organification of iodide and bromide. The breast needs iodine for normal function and protection against breast cancer. High bromide levels in breast tissue would compete with iodine, interfering with the cancer-protecting role of iodine in the breast.”
- Guy. E. Abraham, MD

“An intake of 150 µg/day of iodine will prevent goiters and the other recognized iodine deficiency disorders, but not breast disease. Prevention of breast disease requires higher doses of iodine. Indeed, a reasonable hypothesis is that, like goiters and cretinism, fibrocystic disease of the breast and breast cancer are iodine deficiency disorders (also uterine fibroids).”
- Donald W. Miller, Jr., MD

“Iodine also induces apoptosis, programmed cell death.”
- Donald W. Miller, Jr., MD

“…iodine in the extra-cellular fluid outside of the cells is the main surveillance system for abnormal cells…The name of this process is apoptosis…Carefully documented descriptions of the cancer process at different places in the body reveals most cancers have similar stages through which it passes. The cancers are not really cancer until the cells start to move by invasion through the nearby connective tissue. Cells develop abnormalities for a variety of reasons and can continue to become abnormal all the way up through atypical cells and to carcinoma in situ…Iodine in correct doses will reverse all of the changes up to and including the carcinoma in situ.”
- David M. Derry, MD, PhD

“Dr. Abraham has proposed that the optimal daily dose of iodine for a person is approximately 12.5 mg, which is 100 times the RDA of 0.125 mg…Japanese women, who have one of the lowest breast cancer rates in the world, ingest more than 13 mg of iodine daily from seaweed without suffering any adverse consequences…Dr. Abraham notes that research has shown that the thyroid gland prefers to utilize the iodide form of iodine, while other organs, such as the breast and ovaries, prefer the elemental form of iodine. Both of these forms are present in Lugol’s solution…The dosage of about 12.5 mg of iodine daily can be obtained with 2 drops of Lugol’s solution or as an identical over-the-counter solution. This same dosage is also available over-the-counter in tablet or capsule. Each capsule or tablet or 2 drops of the Lugol’s solution contains 5 mg of the reduced elemental form of iodINE (preferred by the breast, ovary and prostate) and 7.5 mg in the iodIDE form (preferred by the thyroid gland). Numerous testimonials indicate that many patients improve many symptoms with optimal supplementation of this supplement.”
- Michael B. Schachter, MD

“Of all the elements known so far to be essential for human health, iodine is the most misunderstood and the most feared. Yet, iodine is the safest of all the essential trace elements, being the only one that can be administered safely for long periods of time to large numbers of patients in daily amounts as high as 100,000 times the RDA.”
- Dr. David Brownstein

“…our modern agriculture decreased potassium and iodine in our nutrition, precisely the minerals essential for prevention of cancer.” - Max Gerson, M.D. page 142.

Normal Metabolism vs. Cancer Metabolism & Oxygen Therapy

Normal Metabolism vs. Cancer Metabolism

“The fuel on which the body’s cells run is called adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP must be created by all cells, including cancer cells, for energy. The biochemical process in which ATP is created is called oxidation phosphorylation and is oxygen-dependent. Healthy cells require the conditions of alkalinity and high molecular oxygen (O2) to produce ATP and function properly. In contrast, non-oxygen-respiratory organisms – like cancer cells – make ATP by fermentation phosphorylation, which requires the conditions of acidity and low oxygen to function, and actually produces additional acids.” -Philpott, page 75.

Cellular Respiration

The human body’s main fuel is a simple sugar called glucose. Glucose comes from the plants we eat. Through photosynthesis, plants use light energyto produce glucose and oxygen from carbon dioxide and water.

Carbon dioxide + water + energy –> glucose + oxygen

6CO2 + 6H2O + energy –> C6H12O6 + 6O2

Plants then use the glucose to create cellulose and complex carbohydrates. When we eat the plants, the complex carbohydrates are broken down by our digestive system into glucose. Then this food energy is converted to chemical energy by a series of reactions known as cellular respiration. Aerobic respiration uses oxygen.

Glucose + oxygen –> carbon dioxide + water + energy

This reaction occurs in mitochondria in cells. Aerobic respiration extracts the maximum amount of energy from glucose, because the molecule is completely broken down. 

When the supply of oxygen is insufficient, there is a back-up system known as anaerobic respiration, that can release energy without oxygen.

Glucose –> lactic acid + energy

This reaction occurs in the cytoplasm of the cell. It does not put any extra pressure on the respiratory or circulatory systems, because it does not produce carbon dioxide. Cancer cells have either wholly or partially switched to anaerobic respiration. Enzymatic decomposition of glucose in the absence of oxygen is also known as “fermentation“, though in humans the end result is the production of lactic acid, not alcohol, because we lack the enzymes to produce alcohol.

“The ideal task of cancer therapy is to restore the function of the oxidizing systems in the entire organism.” - Dr. Max Gerson, page 7. 

Aerobic cellular respiration creates about 30 ATP molecules from each glucose molecule, and anaerobic respiration creates only 2 ATP molecules. Anaerobic respiration releases only a small fraction of the available energy. Cancer cells must feel very tired!

A nutrient called DMG (Dimethylglycine) improves oxygen utilization within cells and thereby reduces lactic acid formation. Supplementing the diet with DMG together with B vitamin supplementation (folic acid, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12) yields many health benefits including cancer prevention, inhibition of cancer metastases, improved heart health, increased energy, improved oxygenation of the tissues, and improved mental functioning. DMG is very economical and we recommend it for everyone.

For more information regarding cellular respiration, see our section on Hydrazine Sulphate. Hydrazine sulphate blocks a key enzyme in the liver that converts lactic acid back into glucose. Also, you can do a search of the Internet for subjects such as cellular respiration, citric acid cycle, cellular biology and ATP, fermentation, lactic acid fermentation, cellular metabolism and fermentation, adenosine triphosphate, healthy mitochondria, Dr. Otto Warburg, etc.

I liked this article from Ed McCabe. EWOT should be in there! :)

SEVEN CROWN JEWELS OF HEALTH(C)

Here’s the outline summation of the crown  jewel essences that I have learned about healing. The full list is in my new book Flood Your Body With Oxygen, Therapy For Our Polluted World.

I have witnessed each one of these jewels – all by itself – work miracles. I’ll say it again, each one, all ALONE, has worked miracles! In my experience, from the thousands of interviews I have personally conducted, spanning over 12 years, I have seen surprisingly rapid results appear consistently in people who have properly applied just ONE of these jewels all by itself. Perhaps just oxygen supplementation, or just ionic minerals, or just enzymes, or just colon cleansing. And don’t forget spiritual practices. Each one of these has proven to be a “power-house” solution ALL BY ITSELF.

Now, imagine your increased level of wellness if you actually COMBINE ALL SEVEN CROWN JEWELS into your life in a consistent daily manner?

WOW!

1. Lots of cellular OXYGEN, the body cleanser and immune booster; you’re filthy inside, everybody is. Burn the garbage up, clean it out and rebuild with oxygen! Send the toxins running! Pump up the oxygen so the anaerobic bugs have nowhere to live!

2. ENZYMES, the purifying and dissolving scavengers and catalysts that remove waste, dead weak diseased and dying old cells, and undigested food particles, which are the source of food for all the microbes in your body and fluids.

3. Lots of good clean WATER, the major cleanser and transport mechanism for oxygen and hydrogen and minerals and enzymes. After you pump it up, burn it up, purify everything, and start toflush it away, it’s gotta go somewhere, and to do that, you better give the trash something to float in. Flush all the dross out with clear, energetic, natural water! Most people go through life dehydrated, causing themselves unnecessary pain.

4. A CLEAN COLON, to stop auto-toxication and flush wastes. How can you drain the swamp if it has nowhere to go? Don’t re-absorb the garbage because the colon is plugged up at the cell surfaces with hardened mucous. Clean your colon regularly. Try fasting one day a week and using Homozone.

5. An abundant supply of the basic building blocks of full spectrum major and trace IONIC MINERALS including energetic HYDROGEN ions and Sulphur as MSM. They are as important to life as oxygen is. They are catalysts for the 5,000 chemical reactions that occur in the body every second. They transmit messages between the cells. They maintain the sub-alkaline balance of the blood and skin. Without the proper mineral being available, few of your vitamins will work, there is no cellular communication, and NO healing occurs. First you’ve cleaned it up with the oxygen, and now you gotta re-build it all. These mineral elements are what your body is actually made of, and therefore are exactly what it needs in order to repair and re-build itself.

6. Light, Sound, & Other Energy. (New to our Crown Jewels for 2002) Energy; like sunlight, birds chirping, water flowing, and being surrounded with peace and love, are all essentially and ultimately natural beneficial energydelivery systems. We perceive them when we feel the warmth, listen to the melodies, and feel the warm love energy pour out of Mom’s hand as she checks our forehead for a fever. We also seek to acquire more unconditional warm love for ourselves through touching and being with others. The reflection we feel of God’s love and acceptance for us is the powerful drive behind the urge to procreate.

7. An Emotional, Moral and Spiritual BALANCE. Stop living with guilt and disease because of making the wrong choices that you thought were unavoidable – only because you were lost in some illusion. Actually, the bad choices you made were only available for you to choose from due to alack of having complete knowledge of the love that binds us all together, and the ramifications of your decisions. It has been my experience that if one cleans out and oxygenates, the thinking becomes clearer, the intuition gets clearer, and then one makes fewer and fewer bad choices, like anger, or drinking, or dope, including cigarettes. When you think clearer you no longer feel comfortable with self abuse,. You make fewer bad choices, and then the body temple can use its energy to repair and rejuvenate – instead of fighting unnecessary toxins you keep piling in.

Instead of just engaging in a holding action against the daily onslaught of stress and toxins, by oxygenating, you engage in positive evolution and character building. Daily prayer or meditation is highly advised. I have seen broken bones healed instantly through meditation, and dipping into The Life Force daily charges up our creativity and immune defenses. We are now at the evolutionary jumping off point where we finally are re-integrating our access to our total spiritual selves while resident within our human biology, so let’s help the process along, and win the prize.

Try all seven jewels. I mean it. I’ve seen it all, over many years, in all types of people with all sorts of ailments, all over the world, and I can back up that the correctly applied jewels helped them all. This so easy for you to just freely read knowledge that came at the cost of great personal sacrifices by many of us. I am sharing this with you and hoping you appreciate its worth.

Comment:

I have found only one home and clinical supplement, OxyMune (Wholesale & Retail), thatactually combine four of my seven crown jewels of health into just one product.

Using a proprietary micro technology delivery systems, Oxymune is able to rapidly deliver to the whole body, to every organ, to every cell, in every nook and cranny, lots of Oxygen, 7 Enzymes87 Ionic Minerals and Trace Minerals including Hydrogen ions, and MSM, (Sulfur). No wonder people are amazed at the rapidity and thoroughness of the results when they use them, these supplements follow the laws of Nature! And yes, individual results always vary.

The other two crown jewels, drinking lots of clean water, and your emotional and spiritual life, are up to you, but all of these jewels make each other easier to do (and to work faster) because you and life are part of a grand spiritual matrix Whole.

Nearly A Century Later, New Findings Support Warburg Theory Of Cancer 

ScienceDaily (Jan. 14, 2009) — German scientist Otto H. Warburg’s theory on the origin of cancer earned him the Nobel Prize in 1931, but the biochemical basis for his theory remained elusive.

His theory that cancer starts from irreversible injury to cellular respiration eventually fell out of favor amid research pointing to genomic mutations as the cause of uncontrolled cell growth.

Seventy-eight years after Warburg received science’s highest honor, researchers from Boston College and Washington University School of Medicine report new evidence in support of the original Warburg Theory of Cancer.

A descendant of German aristocrats, World War I cavalry officer and pioneering biochemist, Warburg first proposed in 1924 that the prime cause of cancer was injury to a cell caused by impairment to a cell’s power plant – or energy metabolism – found in its

In contrast to healthy cells, which generate energy by the oxidative breakdown of a simple acid within the mitochondria, tumors and cancer cells generate energy through the non- oxidative breakdown of glucose, a process called glycolysis. Indeed, glycolysis is the biochemical hallmark of most, if not all, types of cancers. Because of this difference between healthy cells and cancer cells, Warburg argued, cancer should be interpreted as a type of mitochondrial disease.

In the years that followed, Warburg’s theory inspired controversy and debate as researchers instead found that genetic mutations within cells caused malignant transformation and uncontrolled cell growth. Many researchers argued Warburg’s findings really identified the effects, and not the causes, of cancer since no mitochondrial defects could be found that were consistently associated with malignant transformation in cancers.

Boston College biologists and colleagues at Washington University School of Medicine found new evidence to support Warburg’s theory by examining mitochondrial lipids in a diverse group of mouse brain tumors, specifically a complex lipid known as cardiolipin (CL). They reported their findings in the December edition of the Journal of Lipid Research.

Abnormalities in cardiolipin can impair mitochondrial functionand energy production. Boston College doctoral student Michael Kiebish and Professors Thomas N. Seyfried and Jeffrey Chuang compared the cardiolipin content in normal mouse brain mitochondria with CL content in several types of brain tumors taken from mice. Bioinformatic models were used to compare the lipid characteristics of the normal and the tumor mitochondria samples. Major abnormalities in cardiolipin content or composition were present in all types of tumors and closely associated with significant reductions in energy- generating activities.

The findings were consistent with the pivotal role of cardiolipin in maintaining the structural integrity of a cell’s inner mitochondrial membrane, responsible for energy production. The results suggest that cardiolipin abnormalities “can underlie the irreversible respiratory injury in tumors and link mitochondrial lipid defects to the Warburg theory of cancer,” according to the co-authors.

These findings can provide insight into new cancer therapies that could exploit the bioenergetic defects of tumor cells without harming normal body cells.

Seyfried, Chuang and Kiebish were joined by co-authors Xianlin Han and Hua Cheng from the Washington University School of Medicine, Department of Internal Medicine, in St. Louis.

MORE HEALTHY BREATHING COFACTORS
HOW IS THE FOLLOWING RELATED TO WARBURG?
A crucially important factor in breathing is the exhale, which is longer than the inhale. But contemporary lung volume measurements are inconsistent and guided by cross sectional criteria instead of longitudinal data and therefore do not adequately predict decline within individuals.
This lack of insight about optimal functioning can cause people to be trained to do forced inhalations that may actually be harmful in long run.
