“Exercise with Oxygen Therapy, also known as EWOT, was pioneered in the mid-1970s by Manfred Von Ardenne, a German research and applied physicist and inventor. Also referred to as Oxygen Multistep Therapy (OMT) at times, EWOT is a relatively simple, quick and inexpensive way to get vitality flowing through the body when cellular oxygenation is restored.
Those who have used it will swear by it, for there is no other way to describe EWOT other than being considered Wonder-therapy! It is a widely accepted practice and is currently used in more than 300 medicinal institutions all across Europe.
This is not hype, nor wishful thinking on the part of an oxygen bar supply company that has a vested interest in sales. It is information based on medical research and real case studies that show how EWOT has changed peoples’ lives by helping to avert age-associated diseases such as cardiovascular disease, cancer and arthritis. This therapy is based on the common knowledge that usually with increasing age, cellular energy production is much more limited by oxygen than by nutrient supply.
According to Von Ardenne’s research, this form of Oxygen Therapy is effective for various indications:
- Renormalization of the O2 loading of the blood in the lung functionally degenerated by old age or severe stress
- Early stage of cataract, glaucoma, loss of field of vision, impaired focus
- Angina pectorus, arrhythmias, prophylaxis and rehabilitation for heart disease
- Peripheral circulation disorders, especially in the lower extremities
- Circulation disorders, dizziness of old age, senile diabetes
- General acceleration of any rehabilitation program
- Lasting increase in physical performance capacity
- Sefense stimulation (immune system stimulation), especially after classical cancer treatments that use radiation and chemotherapy
Oxygen can truly change your life, prolong your life and prevent the onset of so called age-related diseases. Did you know that if you contract stage-4 cancer, conventional medicine has absolutely nothing that can cure you? Some time ago, the Congressional Record stated that no one has ever been cured at this late stage with chemo, radiation, surgery, or any combination of these. What’s worse, though, is that the government knows this is true and still gives orthodox medicine a government-granted monopoly on cancer treatment. Fortunately, there are mavericks that risk their livelihood to offer treatments that can beat cancer at any stage. While some of them end up in prison or in poverty, there are others who fly below the government’s radar and make a huge difference in the way we fight cancer.
One such man was Otto Warburg, one of our greatest medical heroes. What he discovered about cancer more than half a century ago won him the Nobel Prize, but more importantly, it may spare your life. Dr. Warburg was a brilliant German scientist who found the common denominator of all cancers. It’s a very simple thread that connects every cancer and exposes cancer’s weakness. His meticulous research won him the Nobel Prize in 1931. And subsequent ground-breaking work earned him a second Nobel Prize offer in 1944. Unfortunately, the Nazis wouldn’t let him receive it. Warburg studied cancer in real time. That means he studied cells as they transformed from normal to cancer as it was happening. His incredible paper was called “The Metabolism of Carcinoma Cells.” It was published in America in the Journal of Cancer Research in 1925.
The connection he discovered was a common metabolic link in all cancers. And it was not pesticides, preservatives, radiation, chemicals, poisons, or any other carcinogen. Wait a minute! Weren’t we taught to believe that carcinogens damage DNA and cause cancer by genetic injury? It’s true that all of these are factors. But they all lead to only one simple bottom line — they prevent your cells from getting or using oxygen. Warburg’s story is all about oxygen. Consume more oxygen and live longer. Consume less and your life will be shortened with more chronic degeneration. Just what kind of degeneration? Not just circulatory diseases and infections, but cancer!
Most doctors think that less oxygen simply means a heart attack or stroke. Warburg proved it also can mean cancer. Here’s why: You know that your cells need to make energy. They do that by burning sugars and fats with Oxygen. It’s sort of like the combustion engine, which burns gasoline and oxygen in your car’s engine. Deprive your car’s engine of gasoline or oxygen, and it will stop running. Warburg found that malignant tumors always have a degree of oxygen deprivation. He also found that cancerous tumors produced far more lactic acid than benign tumors. Lactic acid is what cells produce when they burn sugar without enough oxygen. It’s also what yeast produces when it ferments. Warburg argued that, malignant cancer cells are essentially cells that are fermenting. As the degree of fermentation increases, so does the degree of malignancy. So the next question is, “Why don’t you get cancer in your brain or heart when a clot forms, cutting off the blood supply? “That kind of oxygen deficit will cause instant cell death — a heart attack or stroke.”
Warburg found that in order for cancer to develop, damaged cells must survive long enough for fermentation to start. Total oxygen deprivation definitely means cell death and no subsequent degeneration to cancer. So there’s a mysterious delay between a partial insult and the development of cancer. The length of this delay is different in different animals. In man, it can take several decades, or it can happen much quicker. Warburg emphasized that you can’t make a cell ferment unless a LACK OF OXYGEN is involved. In 1955, two American scientists, R.A. Malmgren and C.C. Flanigan, confirmed Warburg’s findings. They found that Oxygen deficiency is ALWAYS present when cancer develops. Now here’s the real kicker – Warburg found that you can reverse fermentation simply by adding oxygen, but only if you do it early enough. He incubated cells in nitrogen, starving them of oxygen for regular but short periods. Starving the cells of oxygen caused them to begin fermentation. Restoring oxygen promptly enabled the cells to recover. But the longer they were oxygen starved, the slower and less certain the recovery. With enough oxygen starvation, cells don’t recover. Once they reach a certain point, no amount of oxygen will return them to normal.
So all of this begs the question, “Why do cells lose Oxygen in the first place?”. We mentioned earlier that poisons, preservatives, radiation, or other carcinogens all affect a cell’s ability to use oxygen. But there’s something far more common that has the same impact – it’s called glucose. Warburg said that glucose brings a cell’s ability to use oxygen to a standstill. So if you flood your cells with glucose, your cells won’t get the oxygen they need to function correctly. That will begin fermentation, which leads to cancer. This is why I repeatedly call for you to avoid all refined foods. That’s the best way to stop the flood of glucose into your cells.
Now you know the underlying cause of cancer. The next question to consider is what we can do to enhance oxygen delivery. Well, one method is exercise with oxygen therapy (EWOT or multi-step therapy), which I’ve told you about in the past. But what about your diet? Warburg did a lot of work on vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients. He found that they help cells use oxygen more efficiently. Today, we know that vitamins and minerals are absolute requirements for your enzymes to work. When you’re deficient in nutrients, it impairs your cell’s ability to use oxygen and produce energy. I prefer you get most of your nutrients from your food. But supplements will also help. (Ref: Cancer Research, vol. 15(7)).
Multistep Oxygen Therapy IsThe Best Anti-Aging Gift You Can Give Your Body.
In the never-ending fight against the aging process, we have finally found a therapy that now gives us the edge. It can dramatically reduce the effects of the aging process from your body, it costs very little, and it can be done in the comfort of your own home. The therapy is called EWOT (exercise with oxygen therapy) or multi-step therapy. You’ve read about it in the past, but that’s just the beginning of what will be one of the biggest breakthroughs ever in anti-aging medicine in decades, and yet it’s still virtually ignored by the medical establishment. Why? Probably because it doesn’t cost much, so the doctors and drug companies aren’t going to get rich using it, but I suspect most are simply in the dark about the incredible benefits you can receive using this therapy. I know I was for many years.
As an avid user of oxidation and oxygen therapies, I was fortunate to attend a lecture on oxygen multi-step therapy at the International Oxidative Medicine Association’s convention years ago. However, it was presented in poor English without a clear understanding among the attendees of the mechanisms of action. Like most physicians, I need to know how something works to better apply it to patient care. Just hearing results without understanding is not satisfactory. Now, with the aid of recent writings by Dr. Manfred von Ardenne, how this procedure produces its stunning effects becomes not only crystal clear, but also amazingly simple. Before I explain the therapy, though, we need to understand how oxygen gets from your lungs to your tissues. This gets a little technical, but it will help you understand why multi-step therapy is so crucial to effectively fight the aging process.
Atmospheric air pressure at sea level is 760 mm of mercury. Since oxygen comprises approximately 20 percent of the atmosphere, the pressure component of oxygen, called partial pressure, is 20 percent of 760, or about 150 mm. The air coming into the lungs, therefore, contains a pressure of O2 at 150 mm. However, in the lungs, the oxygen is diluted considerably with carbon dioxide leaving the body. Thus, in the air sacs of the lungs (alveoli), the pressure of oxygen is the 150 mm minus the partial pressure of CO2 (which is 40) for a net O2 pressure in the air sacs of about 100-110 mm. This 100-110 mm is the amount of pressure that drives the oxygen from the lungs into the blood. The blood takes the oxygen by way of the arteries to the extremities where it is fed to the capillaries. The capillaries release some of the oxygen to support each individual cell along their pathway. In an ideal situation, the pressure of Oxygen in the arteries will almost match the pressure in the alveoli. When we’re young, this is the case, with the arterial pressure running around 95 mm. However, as we age, the arterial pressure declines, with the average 70-year-old having an arterial pressure of only about 70 mm.
The reason this is significant is because when the blood carries the oxygen to the capillaries, the oxygen must dissolve in the waters of the body in order to reach the O2-thirsty cells beyond the capillary membrane. Unlike carbon dioxide, O2 is much harder to dissolve in liquids and its solubility is heavily dependent on the pressure driving it. Oxygen is extracted in the capillaries and when the blood comes out the venous end of the capillary, the average pressure of oxygen in the veins is about 40 mm early in life and drops to about 35 mm by age 70. The difference in the pressure of oxygen between the arterial and venous sides reflects how well the oxygen is delivered and consumed. In your 30s, the amount of oxygen released to the cells is significantly higher than in your 70s. If you do the math, a 30-year-old will release 55 mm of pressure (95-40=55), while a 70-year-old will release only 35 mm of pressure (70-35=35). That’s a huge drop (55 vs. 35) in the amount of pressure of oxygen your cells are receiving. This is extremely important, as the most common complaint I’ve heard about multi-step therapy is from patients who have their blood tested by a conventional doctor who measures the amount of Oxygen in the blood. When it comes back normal, people think they don’t need the therapy. What the doctor is missing is how well the oxygen is transferred to the cells.
When oxygen pressure falls as you age, the volume of oxygen may stay the same, but you may be oxygen deficient because there’s not enough pressure to push the volume to a usable state. When your doctor tells you there’s plenty of oxygen in your blood, he’s correct. The blood is saturated with oxygen, problem is, there’s not enough oxygen in your cells! You see, the body’s ability to transfer oxygen to the cells becomes damaged as we age. This transfer of oxygen from the blood to the cells is perhaps the most significant underlying factor in whether you live a healthy life or not. The more damaged the transfer mechanism becomes; the more likely you will become ill. This is why you are more susceptible to illness as you age. (There is much more to this aspect of the therapy, but I’ve given you enough science for one day.) The breakthrough with multi-step therapy is that it actually raises the arterial pressure back to youthful levels. And what’s just as important is the effect is long lasting! Furthermore, the technique lowers the oxygen in your veins at the same time, which indicates a dramatic increase in the release and consumption of oxygen as a result of treatment. The larger the difference between the pressure of oxygen in the arteries and veins simply indicates greater oxygen release and consumption by the cells.
Multi-step therapy is surprisingly simple. All it involves is breathing high levels of oxygen while exercising. The higher oxygen level in the lungs creates a greater head of pressure to drive oxygen into the pulmonary capillaries. The exercise moves the circulation much faster, ensuring a greater oxygen carriage. Initially, the oxygen pressure in the veins rises, as more oxygen is getting through to the venous side, but it is this oxygen that allows the capillaries to repair the transfer mechanism. Once the mechanism is fixed, more oxygen can diffuse through the capillary wall to oxygen-thirsty tissues. Typically, the multi-step therapy consists of an 18-day, 36-hour program. First, a drug-nutrient combination is orally administered 30 minutes before the exercise starts. The combination consists of 30 mg of thiamin (vitamin B1), 75 mg of Dipyridamol (the prescription drug Persantine), and 100 mg of magnesium orotate. These agents help the uptake and utilization of oxygen. Thirty minutes after taking the combination, you begin exercising while breathing oxygen using a mask and storage balloon at a flow rate of four to six liters per minute. This lasts two hours each day for 18 days, giving you a total of 36 hours of therapy time. Every 20 minutes during the two-hour treatment period, the individual pushes the exercise to a comfortable maximum, which enhances cardiac output and oxygen delivery to the needy areas. This procedure is probably best supervised by a doctor, though this is not entirely necessary.
A simpler modification, called the quick technique, uses the same procedure (including the drug-nutrient combination), but instead of two hours, you do moderate aerobic exercise for only 15 minutes while breathing pure oxygen at 10 liters per minute. Some combination of the two techniques might be the most effective method. The effects of this treatment are far reaching for virtually every conceivable human condition. Not that this is a cure for anything, but by improving delivery of the most important substance for tissue life and repair, the body will have a much better opportunity to correct any problem. Emphysema, for example, can definitely be assisted, but ongoing sessions are necessary since the transfer mechanism is severely compromised by loss of tissue due to the emphysema. All circulatory disturbances can benefit, including high blood pressure. The development of cancer also may be inhibited. Otto Warburg won the Nobel Prize years ago for demonstrating that cancer functions in an oxygen-poor environment.
There are also reports of excellent results in eye problems; including cataracts (this is understandable, since the lens of the eye is known to be oxygen-deficient already). Other illnesses that benefit from multi-step therapy include: senility, arthroses (joint disturbances), liver and internal organ disturbances, infections, radiation exposure, late effects of strokes, poisonings and burns, and stress. Oxygen multi-step therapy is definitely something you can do in the privacy of your home and very inexpensively. And it may be the most dramatic single thing you can do to prevent disease and restore health. Now you have the tools to turn back the aging clock in your circulation to youthful parameters in just a few weeks. If you’re interested in doing the 18-day program, you can use an oxygen concentrator, which is available from Airheads Oxygen Bars, or by going to: http://www.airheads1.com/personal_o2_package.php on the Web. The Airheads Oxygen Concentrators (AOCS-5) are more expensive up front ($1,595) than Oxygen tanks, but you’ll save money over the long haul because you don’t have to refill the tanks. Make sure that you do not get caught up in a cheaper priced item (such as a refurbished oxygen concentrator.) These units may have been in other patient’s homes, some may have been used to service patients with contagious illnesses. They can also be producing less than the optimum percentage of oxygen and will not carry a 3 year warranty. The AOCS-5 can be “boosted” to put out about 9 LPM at about 90% oxygen purity.
The thiamin and magnesium orotate can be acquired from health food stores. The dipyramidole (Persantine) would have to be obtained through prescription, but appears not to be an absolute essential. Acquisition of an exercise machine (a treadmill or exercise bike will work just fine) takes a little effort and money, but you probably should have one of these anyway. The quick technique is so easy and time efficient and may suffice for those in relatively good shape who want to practice prevention. For those with more significant problems, the 18-day, 36-hour method may be best. For those even more impaired, it would be most advisable to consult with a physician familiar with oxygen therapies. A graded exercise program perhaps beginning with nothing more than lifting a few pounds can be easily devised together with oxygen to begin the transforming process. Oxygen multi-step therapy is a monumental breakthrough that can benefit nearly everyone and is easily administered in your own home.
Reverse Diabetic Retinopathy With Easy, In-Home Treatment.
You can reverse the two most feared complications from diabetes, retinopathy and nephropathy, with a simple treatment you can do in your own home. Both of these conditions develop in diabetics because the disease causes the capillary membranes to thicken. When these membranes thicken, it hinders oxygen and nutrient delivery to the cells. Unfortunately, conventional medicine has little to offer diabetics who develop these conditions. Most of them receive laser surgery, with little success. But a new study gives evidence that diabetics, even those who have had laser surgery, can benefit from one of my favorite therapies.
In a pilot study just published by Johns Hopkins Hospital, five patients between the ages of 52 and 69 with diabetic retinopathy were selected. All had conventional laser treatment previously and 9 of 10 eyes had persistent edema despite the laser. (Lasers burn abnormal and leaking blood vessels caused by diabetes in the retina.) The patients were given supplemental oxygen (using an oxygen concentrator) at four liters per minute by nasal tube. They were instructed to use the oxygen continually for three months, except when taking showers. At the end of the test period, extra thickness of the macula (your central vision) was reduced by 54 percent. Additionally, three of the eyes had better visual acuity, improving two lines on the reading chart. Most of the eyes gradually worsened when the oxygen was withdrawn. However, four of the eyes maintained stability, suggesting that supplemental oxygen has a stabilizing effect on the laser surgery for retinopathy.
The principal investigators in the study believe the retina, when faced with a decrease in oxygen, becomes leaky. This stimulates the growth of new (but abnormal) blood vessels. Since the new blood vessels are abnormal, they can leak or bleed. So their presence is more dangerous to the eyes than simply needing the oxygen. The leakage can cause the macula to become thickened, resulting in vision loss. This affects up to 10 percent of all patients with diabetes. Supplemental oxygen prevents the eye from producing these abnormal vessels. This, in turn, reduces the amount of leaking in retinal vessels and prevents the macula from thickening. The treatment could reduce the thickness of the retina before laser treatment. Burdened by less edema, laser treatment may become more effective, even when oxygen is withdrawn.
Obviously, your most important nutrient is oxygen! This is just more proof of its value. Exercise with oxygen therapy (EWOT), performed for decades in Germany, is the granddaddy of oxygen therapies. Aging itself causes thickening of the capillaries. Supplemental oxygen was shown years ago to reduce edema accumulated in the capillary lining cells. This work confirms its power, but it will be decades before “modern” medicine figures it out. If you have diabetic retinopathy, or nephropathy, oxygen therapy is a must. In fact, if you have diabetes, you’re most likely to have problems at some degree in many organs of the body. Don’t wait for complications. Start EWOT today! If you have diabetic complications, take this information to your doctor and ask to be prescribed supplemental oxygen.”
