Anti-Aging & Athletic Performance
Aging is characterized by a general decrease in O2 supply to tissues and a reduction in tissue pO2. A diminished vascularization in aging alters the diffusion of O2 at the capillary tissue level.
Aging is associated with both hypoxia (38% reduction in oxygen levels, Po2 21.7 mmHg) and increases reactive oxygen species in visceral fat depots of aging male C57Bl/6 mice.
In a clinical examination of 46 patients with EWOT, about 2/3 experienced an increase of resting values of arterial oxygen pressure. This effect continues more than 3 months after the end of O2MT [EWOT], demonstrating prophylactic and therapeutic effects, including improvement of cardiorespiratory and cardiovascular efficiency, especially for the use of preventive-treatment and gerontology-therapy.
Double-blind study on 20 male healthy volunteers from the working population showed a 17% improvement of the energetic or oxygenation state of the subjects two-weeks after the completion of two 15-minute EWOT sessions.
59 patient’s mental capacity was measured by computer-based-methods before and after EWOT and compared to 14 controls. The test group saw a 19-23% improvement in short term memory and times needed for the accomplishment of perception, interference and reaction tests became significantly shorter by 12-18%
The beneficial effects of EWOT can persist for weeks, months or even years.
Cancer, Inflammation & The Immune System
Over 70 years ago, Warburg showed that cells could always be made cancerous by subjecting them to periods of hypoxia.
In metastatic cells, the accelerated cell proliferation will further increase the level of hypoxia due to the increased cell accumulation, potentially forming a vicious cycle.
Higher oxygen status of a tumor correlates to higher survival rate: 22 patients with nonmetastatic, high-grade, soft tissue sarcomas underwent preoperative irradiation and hyperthermia and pretreatment measurement of tumor oxygenation. The 18-month actuarial disease-free survival was 70% for patients with tumor median oxygen pressure (pO2) values of >10 mm Hg but only 35% for those with median pO2 values of < 10 mm Hg (P = 0.01). Median pO2 was 7.5 mm Hg for metastasizing tumors versus 20 mm Hg for non-metastasizing tumors (P = 0.03).
With the 15-minute EWOT sessions and desiccated thymus pills, precancerous skin lesions were unprimed within 10 months.
Hypoxia can induce inflammation. In persons with mountain sickness, for example, levels of circulating proinflammatory cytokines increase, and vascular leakage causes pulmonary or cerebral edema.
Hypoxia and inflammation are two sides of the same coin
