exercise with oxygen therapyThe purpose of EWOT (exercise with oxygen therapy) is to supply the vital organs, including the brain, with a surplus of oxygen. These organs tend to be very oxygen hungry, so supplying them with high flow rate of oxygen can really help improve function and micro circulation. This approach, coupled with specific functional exercises or movements, can target both organ-specific issues as well as brain problems. Every cell in the body relies on oxygen for function, and if it loses its oxygen supply, it will become painful.  With a high enough flow rate, EWOT may be able to exceed the oxygen delivery of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT), with much less time, and without getting into a claustrophobic chamber. 

What is Exercise with Oxygen Therapy?

EWOT is a therapy used to help increase oxygen delivery to the tissues of the body.  This is accomplished by wearing a special mask while performing an activity.  The treatment is tailored to the health of the patient, so a chronic fatigue syndrome patient may only be able to slowly ride a stationary bike for 5 minutes, while our elite athletes are able to work out at full capacity with more return and better recovery.  This is especially beneficial when combined with our Energetic Fitness System - EFS200 Pro

Medical Research about EWOT

   

As stated by the Oxegan and Health Association

"Oxygen comprises 21% of the atmosphere. Dr. Robert Rowen of Second Opinion explains that in your 30s, the amount of oxygen released to the cells is significantly higher than in your 70s. When you age, the oxygen arterial pressure falls. Thus, while the volume of oxygen may stay the same and it may appear you are getting enough, you may be oxygen deficient because there isn't enough pressure to make use of the volume of oxygen. One aspect of the breakthrough of EWOT is that it raises the arterial pressure to more youthful levels. 

Another is what Dr. William Campbell Douglas calls the Law Of Mass Action. Law of Mass Action says that plasma will absorb extra oxygen that hemoglobin cannot absorb and much of that extra oxygen will get eventually be absorbed into the body's tissue. Both aspects of EWOT involve breathing higher levels of oxygen while exercising. Exercise increases the circulation, creating a greater pressure to drive oxygen into the capillaries. The increase in arterial pressure as well as the quantity of oxygen via mass action enhances the repair potential of the transfer mechanism and the absorption of extra oxygen into the cells. EWOT is effective for almost every conceivable condition because it improves the delivery of the most essential substance in tissue life and repair."
