Oxygen Concentrator Factors
My blood oxygen raises 2 points
while using my concentrator (I call it 02E2).
I often feel better when I use it then when I do not. I always feel more
clearheaded. I always last longer without fatigue while at the computer
I have personally observed others using our 5 liter a minute machines
and exercising using a stationary bicycle. They report to be less tired
using the concentrator during the same time than they would exercise
without it. Some actually have to be stopped using the oxygen unit along
with the stationary recumbent bicycle as they are taking too long
because they feel no fatigue and "just keep feeling better." But I
suspect it is not the same for everyone.
I personally do not trust the heart rate levels that stress tests demand
as people die during stress tests as well as the following day after
passing a stress test. I advise those using O2E2 to maintain a lower
hart rate and end the session feeling energized or at least not feeling
fatigued. Sweaty perhaps, fatigued no.
I know very well O2E2 is helping because of the oxygen that the pulse
oximeter shows an increase as well as how I feel more energy and I am
encouraged more to exercise because I believe I am getting the benefits
of this added booster. So if it is placebo so be it. But my
understanding of the benefits of oxygen lead me to strongly believe it
is in actuality doing me a great deal of good. I also advise to not use
it as a replacement for exercise but as a supplement and encouragement
to exercise more albeit moderate.
When oxygen levels are properly increased, the red blood cells pick up
the extra oxygen, and provide it to our body tissues. Waste gases and
toxins are removed more efficiently and cells begin to function
Anaerobic viruses, bacteria and fungi, unable to live in an oxygen
enriched environment, are compromised. Oxygen builds resistance to
infections like yeast (candida albicans) that thrive in an oxygen
deficient environment. Oxygen helps to neutralize acids in our body,
like lactic acid resulting from muscle overload. Our body's chemical
reactions are "fired-up" due to the increased oxygen levels. We burn fat
more efficiently. We feel better, our body is healthier and we think
more clearly because of increased oxygenation.
Here is more benefits discovered by extensive research:
* Removes free radicals
* Reduces tissue swelling
* Increases neuronal energy metabolism in the brain
* Can create sustained cognitive improvement
* Wakes up sleeping (idling) brain cells that are metabolizing enough to
stay alive but are not actively "firing".
* Enhances the body's ability to fight bacterial and viral infections
* Deactivates toxins and poisons (e.g. side effects from some
chemotherapy, spider bites, air pollution, etc.)
* Enhances wound healing, (stimulates new capillaries into wounds).
* Creates an immediate aerobic state
* Acts as an anti-inflammatory
TOO MUCH OXYGEN?
Aside from being in a hyperbaric oxygen
chamber where they put you into pressurized oxygen at two atmospheres
for 1 hour I personally believe it is very difficult to get too much
oxygen and it is pretty easy to get too little. One could say that
water should never be administered without a prescription because it can
lead to drowning if used incorrectly, or that baseball bats should be
licensed as deadly weapons. But people don't say these things, because
they defy common sense. Some with severe lung dysfunction may not be
able to absorb/take in the extra oxygen and should consult a health
professional familiar with that issue. It may be they need to start slower
or not at all.
BREATHING TOO MUCH
hyperventilation is not always hyperventilation. In my opinion and due to my
experience with various forms of breathwork it should often be better called hyper-inhalation and governed by
phenomena called the Law Of Mass Action whereby extra oxygen
not measurable in the hemoglobin but can be "packed" into the
plasma then body
tissues for later recovery and usage. In terms of what is called "overbreathing"
or hyperventilation, if the way you are breathing makes you anxious then
you are probably chest breathing and need to change the
way you are
breathing and not sacrifice potential oxygen stores by breathing
shallowly or less. Under-breathing can sometimes cause the body to
better utilize whatever O2 it can get but that benefit/phenomenon may not
last all that long.
