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).
