Why Do We Use Enhanced Air (Oxygen) With Our
Treatment Program?


The Benefits of Oxygen chiropractic clinics st george utah

The three basic nutrients without which planet earth could not exist as a home for living things are light, water, and oxygen. Everybody knows that walking in fresh air does you good.

It promotes the capacity of thinking and improves efficiency. A deep breath raises our energy levels within a short time. Even after physical exercises we feel more active and fresh although a lot of energy has been used up. 


One major reason for aging is the failure of enzymatic systems that are responsible for our bodies’ uptake and utilization of oxygen.

When our cells don't get enough oxygen, they degenerate and die.

Lack of mobility, infections and toxins make our oxygen status worse and this worsening produces illness.

This degeneration is connected with a noticeable reduction of physical and mental powers, especially in old age.


Lack of oxygen causes a critical decrease of the cardiac output; less oxygen is transported through the body. For example, the oxygen supply of 80 year-old person can go down as far as 66% of the maximum amount. Human beings can take a lot of punishment, mentally and physically, so these frequent drops in our ability to utilize oxygen efficiently are not going to kill anyone immediately.  


But each level of oxygen deprivation takes its toll, and if a few cells die here and there due to constant external (or internal) stress, it begins to add up. The end result is premature aging.  


So if a simple system can be used that constantly provides the body with additional oxygen,  these stress factors can be, to a certain extent, neutralized.  


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 apnoea, poor concentration, forgetfulness, mood swings, restlessness, depressive thoughts and low drive. 

Stay Strong:

Fatigue has been reported by several studies as one of the most common symptoms experienced by people worldwide. 


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. 


Stay Alert: 

Unlike muscles, your brain cannot store energy. It needs a steady flow of nutrients and oxygen 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.


Studies have shown that oxygen helps: 

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 


Exercise With Oxygen Therapy (EWOT) 

With EWOT that system is easily available. EWOT (pronounced ee-watt) stands for Exercise With Oxygen Therapy. This method of prolonging your life is so simple that it's hard to believe it could work, but it does. 


EWOT was invented by Manfred von Ardenne, physicist, researcher and inventor, state award winner of the USSR, national award winner of the GDR. He had about 600 national and international patents, first already with 16 years.  


Von Ardenne was one of the pioneers of the television developing the broadband amplifier and the electron ray tube in its modern form. At the Radio Exhibition of 1931 Ardenne presented the first worldwide television set.  


Professor von Ardennes was also the inventor of the raster electron microscope. Later in life he turned to the medicine, and developed two classic EWOT techniques (‘Oxygen Multi-step Therapy’ and ‘Systemic Cancer Multi-Step Therapy.’) 


Von Ardenne found that stress of any type can cause a decrease in the ability to absorb oxygen into the blood, which can result in decreased oxygen to the tissues. EWOT can help reverse this by increasing the amount of oxygen in the blood and plasma, and also in the tissues. This increased level of tissue oxygen has several beneficial effects.  


It has been used successfully for a multitude of conditions, including:
Heart failure 

Cardiomegaly (enlarged heart) 

High blood pressure 


Wellness and anti-aging 


Stress of all types 


How and Why EWOT Works:

Exercising while breathing oxygen, dramatically increases the amount of oxygen in the blood plasma (the portion of the blood outside the red and white cells). The oxygen content of plasma fluid can be dramatically increased and oxygen pushed into the body's cells without the aid of the red cells.

It's called the
  Law of Mass Action . If the concentration of a certain component in a chemical mixture is high enough, chemical combining will take place with other elements of the mixture that ordinarily wouldn't happen. 


After even 15 minutes of EWOT, there is a dramatic ‘pinking up’ of a patient's skin. This can be seen easily by simple observation, and illustrates that the tiny capillaries (vessels tinier than a strand of hair) are carrying extra oxygen to cells of the body. Presumably every organ is being bathed in these extra amounts of life-sustaining oxygen. 


EWOT technique is very simple to employ. You should wear light, comfortable clothing with EWOT. Your doctor will first determine your level of physical fitness. If you are quite fit, you might begin by exercising on an upper body ergometer (UBE) which is like a bicycle for the arms, or on an elliptical exerciser for 15 minutes while breathing oxygen from an oxygen concentrator.  


If you are less conditioned, you may have to work up to using the UBE or elliptical exerciser, very often by beginning EWOT with vibration instead. Before and after treatment we will monitor your heart rate, oxygen concentration, and blood pressure. 


For the prescribed period of time, you simply perform your exercise, all the while breathing in 90-95% oxygen from an oxygen concentrator.  


After EWOT, you’ll find yourself invigorated, renewed, and clear-headed. EWOT can be used therapeutically via multiple sessions over a short period of time for acute therapy, or employed periodically over a longer period of time to treat chronic stress, injury or illness. 


Basically, the body's ability to transfer oxygen from the lungs to the cells is perhaps the most significant factor in whether you live a healthy life or not. This transfer mechanism becomes damaged with age, and then susceptibility to illness increases. However, EWOT aids the body in repairing this vital mechanism.  


The scientific aspect of EWOT is a little complex, but here is a basic explanation. Oxygen comprises 20% of the atmosphere. Atmospheric pressure is 760 mm and thus the partial pressure of oxygen entering the body's lungs is about 150 mm. However, oxygen in the lungs is diluted considerably with carbon dioxide.  


As the environment becomes increasingly polluted, the oxygen we intake is more and more diluted by carbon dioxide leaving the body and in the atmosphere. After oxygen is diluted, its pressure is reduced to 100-110 mm. This pressure drives the oxygen from the lungs into the blood and via the arteries to the capillaries in the extremities of the body. The capillaries then release some of the oxygen to support individual cells.  


Ideally, the pressure of the oxygen in the arteries will almost equal the pressure in the lungs. However, aging causes the arterial pressure to decrease to approximately 70 mm as opposed to 95 mm.  


In order for the oxygen to reach the cells from the capillaries, it must dissolve into the water of the body. Unlike carbon dioxide, though, oxygen does not dissolve easily into liquid. The significance is this: Oxygen's solubility is heavily dependent on the pressure driving it.  


Dr. Rowen of Second Opinion explains Oxygen is extracted in the capillaries and when the blood comes out the venous end of he capillary, the average pressure of oxygen in the veins is about 40 mm early in life and drops to 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:  a 30 year-old will release 55 mm (95-40) while a 70 year-old will release 35 mm (70-35).

That's a huge drop in the amount of pressure of oxygen your cells receive. 


The problem is that when you age, the oxygen pressure falls. Thus, while the volume of oxygen may stay the same and it may appear you are getting enough, your may be oxygen deficient because there isn't enough pressure to make use of the volume of oxygen.  


The breakthrough of EWOT is that it raises the arterial pressure to youthful levels; it only involves breathing high levels of oxygen while exercising. Exercise increases the circulation, creating a greater pressure to drive oxygen into the capillaries.  


The increase in pressure facilitates the repair of the transfer mechanism. EWOT is effective for every conceivable condition because it improves the delivery of the most essential substance in tissue life and repair.

"All body functions are breathing related. Proper oxygen delivery to all parts of your body is crucial to health and well-being. Aerobic exercise increases the body’s available oxygen and therefore promotes wellness. Delivering oxygen to the body is the responsibility of the respiratory system. Breathing is the process by which air enters the bloodstream, via the lungs. Thus, proper breathing, and correcting common breathing disorders, is the ultimate form of aerobics."

"When the body is totally deprived of food, the

metabolism slows and life can be sustained for several weeks. However, when the body is totally deprived of oxygen, metabolism comes to a halt immediately and life can only be sustained for a few minutes. Does it not make common sense that the way we breathe day-to-day has the most dramatic effect on our body's health and metabolism than any other single process?"

Medical Thoughts on Oxygen 

"Extra oxygen enables you to recover more quickly from exertion. It allows someone to train and then exercise again." – Dr. John Brewer, head of sports science at Lilleshall Human Performance Centre: Health and Fitness 1999. 


"Oxygen can clear your head, help eliminate toxins, and give you a mind high" – Andy Davison exercise physiologist Cosmopolitan 2000. 


"If you use oxygen for 20 minutes, muscles become loosened; headaches and stress seem to disappear. There is a renewed energy and a feeling of relaxation. I am confident oxygen works." –  Dr. Richard de Andrea Sunday Herald. 


"Increases alertness, improves the body’s ability to burn fat and enhances physical performance." – Howard Robbins D.P.M, for The Journal. 


"Dr. Parris Kidd stated that 'oxygen plays a pivotal role in the proper functioning of the immune system; i.e. Resistance to disease, bacteria and viruses.' Dr. Stephen Levine stated that 'we can look at oxygen deficiency as the single greatest cause of disease.' thus the development of a shortage of oxygen in the blood could very well be the starting point for the loss of the immune system and the beginning of feared health problems such as Cancer, Leukemia, AIDS, Candida, seizures, and nerve deterioration."

"In all serious disease states we find a concomitant low oxygen state...low oxygen in the body tissues is a sure indicator for disease... Hypoxia, or lack of oxygen in the tissues, is the fundamental cause for all degenerative disease."  

Dr. Stephen Levine, renowned molecular biologist author, Oxygen Deficiency: A concomitant to all degenerative illness. 


"I have ME and Fibromyalgia and have suffered with this debilitating condition for more than twelve years. I saw an oxygen bar at a health event and needed to sit down and by chance tried the oxygen. After this for four days I felt so active, had no pain, no fatigue, and no exhaustion and even managed to clean my house out. I made frequent trips in my car to the tip and charity shop of which I am normally unable do. I even went out for a meal and went shopping which I’ve never been able to do."
