Would you like to breathe, to think with a clear head, or maybe you like doing sports or have caught a little cold, or is the problem more serious? You are at the right place!
Our life processes (birth and death of cells, breakdown of nutrients, depletion of harmful substances, etc.) are largely carried out in the presence of oxygen, it is a vital element of the billions of cells in our body, therefore it greatly affects our vitality and well-being. Our cells fulfil their tasks by any means; if oxygen is not available in the required amount for these metabolic processes, they start seeking for a new energy source. This process, on the other hand, disturbs cellular metabolism and our cells can produce unwanted substances or even toxins. As a result, in a relatively short period of time, many weak, unhealthy cells may be produced which may lose their defensive and adaptive ability.
Unfortunately, the oxygen deficient state of the cells favors the development of tumor cells, since certain types of cancer cells can develop in an oxygen deficient environment. Oxygen therapy is not only suitable for the prevention of tumor diseases but also for the supplementation of chemotherapy and radiotherapy. And in many other cases, which you can read in further sub-pages of our website.
Our respiratory system starts already at the nose (or mouth). The inhaled air passes through the trachea (and bronchus, bronchioles etc.) into the alveoli, and from there, the oxygen gets into the lung capillaries. Oxygen-filled fresh blood flows into the left ventricle of the heart from where it reaches all parts of the body. A precondition for a healthy cellular metabolism is the presence of oxygen in an always adequate amount. After the gas exchange (the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide), the blood flows from the capillaries of the body through the veins to the right half of the heart. From here, it gets back into the lungs for the intake of fresh oxygen, and the whole process starts form the beginning.
In what cases can oxygen therapy help?
- improvement of blood circulation, prevention of heart faliure, heart disease, high blood pressure or heart attack (oxygen deficiency is also responsible for the pain occurring in case of sclerosis of the coronary arteries of the heart)
- all brain and peripheral circulatory disorders, migraine, dizziness
- supplementation of cytostatic treatment (tumors)
- chronic respiratory failure (COPD), other lung diseases, asthma
- allergies and hypersensitivity reactions
- absorption and utilization of vitamins, minerals, amino acids and active substances of herbal origin
- balance disorders, hearing loss, ear ring (tinnitus)
- strengthening the immune system, helping digestion
- facilitation of wound and bone healing
- reduction of the effects of menopause, depression, stress, general well-being, elimination of energy-deprived states and exhaustion
- prevention of diseases caused by alcohol consumption or nicotine consumption
- performance enhancement (not just in sports)
- carbon monoxide poisoning, hyperventilation
- cosmetic skin rejuvenating treatments
Without liquid and solid food, we are able to survive for days... but for how many minutes without oxygen?
In which cases is oxygen therapy recommended?
Oxygen therapy is widely used, but primarily for disease prevention. In some countries of the Far East, for example, because of the high level of air pollution, so called oxygen bars have been created, where guests can get fresh oxygen through an oxygen concentrator accompanied with a refreshing tea. It is recommended in all cases - when there is no illness or organ problem in the background - where chronic fatigue, loss of performance, concentration disorder, lethargy, or sleep deprivation occurs.
The oxygen uptake of an average, complaint-free adult is 1,5 - 2 liters per minute (20% of this inhaled oxygen is consumed only by the brain). Oxygen therapy seeks to restore this volume of 1,5 - 2 liters / minute.
We would like to draw attention to the fact that beneficial oxygen can sometimes be dangerous. Inhaling concentrated oxygen constantly or permanently (continuously, for several hours without interruption) can damage the bronchi of the lungs, fluid may emerge in the lungs or, as our age progresses, our cellular activity decreases, so less cell flow requires less oxygen. Inhalation of constant or permanent oxygen is only recommended for patients after a thorough medical examination.
There are many illnesses that can occur during our life and which require oxygen supply.Learn more
Mobility is also a kind of biological need, but its many other beneficial effects are known, as well. Mentioning only the most important examples, movement - by increasing the oxygen uptaking ability - has a beneficial effect on the immune system, the nervous system, the brain capacity, the blood veLearn more
