Optimal Physical and Mental Health


Optimal Physical and Mental Health

An absolute key component of optimal physical and mental health is oxygen. Oxygen therapy today is not only used for treatment of serious medical conditions, but is widely popular and available as a natural therapy to cope with the effects of aging, stress, illnesses, injury or overexertion.

Today’s hectic and stressful lifestyles with environmental pollutants, pesticides, fast-food diets and reduced activity has lowered our immune system and our body can easily be struggling hard to maintain an acceptable flow of oxygen.

Inadequate oxygen level will cause cell death and organ malfunction which is aggravated by age, injury and illnesses. Adequate oxygen levels in your body will keep you in balance.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy, is a specialized therapy that uses an increase in atmospheric pressure to allow the body to absorb more oxygen in blood cells, blood plasma, cerebral-spinal fluid, and other body fluids. It is used to prevent and fight infection, promote vascularization, bone growth and nerve regeneration, as well as strengthen the immune system.


Research shows that many illnesses connected with aging can be avoided or slowed down through optimal cell health. Studies show that oxygen levels in arterial blood in a 70 year old are 20% lower than in a 30-50 year old. Chronic lack of oxygen can cause progressive nerve cell death. Adding extra oxygen fights chronic conditions, especially inflammation and is very important in improving brain circulation and brain activity. On a longer scale hyperbaric oxygen therapy provides neuroprotection by stimulating oxidative cerebral energy metabolism.

Dr. Paul Harch argues in his book called The Oxygen Revolution that hyperbaric oxygen therapy will likely become the fountain of youth by the baby boomer generation whose life has been compromised by years of drug experimentation in the 1960sand 1970s. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy will be able to restore waning brain functionand prevent premature demetia according to dr. Harch.
