Your brain and nervous system need two things to survive: fuel and activation. Fuel comes in the form of glucose and oxygen. You get the glucose from the food you eat BUT as you age, your ability to utilize oxygen decreases. We are giving you oxygen to help you heal faster. We want to get you better as fast as possible.
Plus, the cerebellum is in the back part of your brain and it controls ALL of your spinal musculature as well as your balance and coordinated movement. When the cerebellum is not firing correctly, the muscles will spasm, the vertebra lock up and the disc will lose fluid and degenerate. When we get the cerebellum firing better, the spinal muscles will no longer be in spasm, the vertebra will move better and your disc will re-generate.
The cerebellum is the most DEPENDENT area of the body when it comes to oxygen. So that is why we are giving you oxygen, to get you better faster by allowing your cerebellum to work better!
Is oxygen essential for brain activity?
The brain demands at least 20% of the body’s oxygen supply, when it doesn’t get this supply it can lead to issues such as sleep apnea, poor concentration, forgetfulness, mood swings, restlessness, depressive thoughts and low drive.
What are the main benefits of using oxygen?
Studies have shown that oxygen helps with the following:
• Chronic Fatigue
• Resltess Legs Syndrome
• Muscle spasm
• Back Pain
• Multiple Sclerosis
• Stimulate brain activity
• Increase memory capacity
• Boost concentration
• Develop stronger alertness
• Raise energy levels
• Improve strength
• Build endurance
• Detox your blood
• Reduce stress
• Calm anxiety
• Alleviate tension headaches
• Remedy irregular sleeping patterns
• Help with cardiovascular activity
• Prevent lactic acid build up
• Strengthen the immune system
Fatigue has been reported by several studies as one of the most common symptoms experienced by people worldwide*.
*"Boosting Your Energy" A Special Health Report from Harvard Medical School, Harvard Health Publications, 2006
Every breath you take converts to energy. Human cells use nutrients from food and oxygen to create adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy source that fuels cell function. If your cells receive too little oxygen, they produce less energy. If your cells need more energy, they use more oxygen. That's why your breathing rate increases when you exercise.
Unlike muscles, your brain cannot store energy. It needs a steady flow of nutrients and oxygen through hyperbaric or concentrator methods to function normally. Oxygen deficiency can decrease your alertness, memory and judgment. Conditions that can reduce blood oxygen levels include:
- air pollution
- traveling to a higher elevation
- breathing stale air that has less than the normal 20-21% oxygen.
