EWOT is a tested treatment option for a variety of medical conditions.
Regular exercise is highly recommended for everyone who is physically able to do it. To maximize and expedite its effects, exercise with oxygen therapy (EWOT) is recommended.
As the name implies, it involves administering a high flow rate of oxygen while the patient is exercising. Exercises can be done on a stationary bike, a treadmill or an elliptical.
Exercising while breathing supplemental oxygen greatly increases the amount of oxygen in the blood plasma. Plasma makes up 55% of the blood. It carries water, salts, and enzymes.
The plasma’s main function is to transport nutrients and proteins. It also helps remove cellular waste and circulate blood.
A sign that the amount of oxygen in the plasma has increased after EWOT is dramatic “pinking” of the patient’s skin. This means that the tiny capillaries are carrying extra oxygen to all the cells in the body.
Patients immediately experience improved mental clarity, vision, and energy. It is also normal for patients to feel energy currents, buzzing, tingling, streaming or breeze-like sensations in various parts of the body.
Some EWOT benefits for general wellness include slowing down the aging process, boosting strength while burning calories, reducing vulnerability to diseases and improving cognitive functions and circulation.
It can also help people who are suffering from the flu, emphysema, high blood pressure or stress. People who need to recover from physically demanding activities, infectious diseases and skin conditions can also undergo EWOT to recover faster.
EWOT Benefits For Cancer Patients
When the body lacks oxygen, cells wither and die, and this causes the body to weaken. It makes people more vulnerable to diseases. It also affects vital functions.
Cancer cells thrive in oxygen-depleted conditions. As long as the cells are able to thrive in that environment, there is no long-term positive change that can be expected.
With EWOT, the body is able to create an oxygen-rich environment. In effect, it is more capable of fighting off illnesses. For patients undergoing chemotherapy or radiation, EWOT can help expedite recovery and minimize the toxic effects of these conventional treatments.
EWOT also helps the body function at its best. This therapy improves overall health by getting the heart pumping and delivering oxygen to healthy cells.
Another EWOT benefit is an increase in energy levels, which tends to become a challenge for people battling cancer. Regular and guided sessions can help patients improve endurance and kickstart the immune system.
Lymphatic drainage massage is also one of the well-known therapy which helps in cellular repair by draining waste out of the body.
