Detox with Oxygen

Updated: May 9, 2023

There are a number of vital nutrients that are essential to our health, but none are more important than oxygen. In fact, Oxygen is the most vital nutrient we consume. It provides 90% of our energy, compared to food and water which provide only 10%. Needless to say, we wouldn’t last long without it. But did you know that oxygen is an incredible detoxifier? Goodbye juice cleanse, hello oxygen therapy!

Oxygen is the universal cleanser. Through the process of oxidation, the thousands of potentially harmful toxins, which enter the body, are broken down or 'rusted' down into their basic elements in readiness for harmless elimination. As the number of toxins in the body rises, so the need for oxygen also increases. This circumstance can easily produce an even greater reduction of available oxygen. Further, the presence of chronic, ongoing disease drains the body of larger amounts of oxygen in detoxifying the byproducts of the disorder.

If we wish to cleanse every cell of the body, increasing the oxygen in the blood stream is the single greatest method of accomplishing this. When the blood becomes oxygen rich, it transports the oxygen to every cell of the body, including the brain cells. In the presence of oxygen, cellular waste and toxic buildup are broken down and carried off in the blood stream to the kidneys.

Raising blood oxygen levels is important for many reasons besides its cleansing and detoxifying properties. Most pathogens, viruses and bacteria, which can enter our bodies and ultimately make us sick, have an anaerobic metabolism. In other words, they survive best in an oxygen deficient environment. When we increase the oxygen to the living tissues of the body, these pathogens cannot effectively multiply and in many cases, are destroyed outright. Recent studies have shown that the virus suspected of causing Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS), as well as herpes, hepatitis, Epstein Barr, and cytomegalovirus, join the group of viruses that are lipid coated. It has also been shown that many lipid-enveloped viruses are destroyed in the presence of concentrated oxygen!
