The Importance of Oxygen in the Human Body

Usually, all vertebrates need oxygen to survive. It is the most abundant element in the universe and makes up 21 percent of our atmosphere. People get oxygen from the air, water, food supplements, and manufactured oxygen. The more oxygen that a person gets, the easier it is to stay healthy. Sufficient oxygen in body cells, organs, and the brain boost a person’s energy, thinking, and cognitive abilities.

One of the most important ways to improve oxygen utilization is to get regular exercise. When a person receives twenty to forty-five minutes or more, four to seven times a week, it increases stamina, energy, cell health, and memory. Still, it increases lung capacity and the health of the microbiome and immune system.

Oxygen is found in every cell in our bodies. It is used in our muscles, organs, the brain, and every cell where the blood goes. It is not only important in preventing cancer, but in curing cancer as well. Did you know that oxygen can avoid some of the most severe and debilitating diseases, but help cure them with exercise, ozone, hyperbaric oxygen, Nitrous oxide supplements, and activated, stabilized oxygen? That is why oxygen is one of the most critical factors in disease control, prevention, and disease curing.

Physicians know the value and essential use of exercises, not only to prevent hundreds of disease-fighting functions, diseases, and shorter longevity but also to prevent cancer. In Australia, Spain, and many other countries, cancer physicians recommend and prescribe exercise for their cancer patients, related to their ability to perform. Cancer patients are urged to use exercise as part of their cancer program.

Many U.S. cancer physicians do not mention the value of exercise when a person has cancer but usually have a personal regular exercise program.

When he discovered what cancer was and how it did not use oxygen to multiply, Dr. Otto Warburg recommended oxygen as one of the elements needed to prevent and fight cancer. Regular exercise is essential, but essential for a person to stay healthy, free of disease, and fight cancer.

When breathing, oxygen goes into your bloodstream and goes to every cell in your body (oxidation). It helps produce adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP provides the energy that a person needs to support the body cells and brain functions. The body also needs oxygen to help eliminate toxins, waste products, burn glucose, and help eradicate fatty acids. Usually, the more exercise a person gets, the better the health of the immune system, body cells, organs, and brain. Body health also depends on a great electromagnetic diet.

Oxygen has recently been found to be a vital component of the skin. It also helps increase cell functions, promotes healing, and memory functions.

Because oxygen is so easily oxidized in the body, it is reduced to oxygen ions and hydrogen peroxide. The hydrogen peroxide then helps reduce microorganisms and pathogens. The electronic chemistry of oxygen configuration is fatal to many pathogens. Vitamin C also has an oxygen boosting effect by enhancing the production of hydrogen peroxide. This is why vitamin C (1,000 to 2,000 mg. a day), with oxygen, is a great destroyer of microorganisms and pathogens.

Many nitrous oxide supplements also are great boosters of oxygen. These nitrous oxide boosters convert to oxygen when taken into the body. Some of these great supplements are L-arginine, L-theonine, ginkgo Biloba, turmeric, resveratrol, beet powder, vitamin D3, B6, B12, folate, and magnesium.

The incredible benefits of daily exercise are many and essential. Here is a list of the many health benefits.

1. The Immune System: The immune system targets and destroys bacteria, fungus, viruses, and some parasites. The immune system has to use oxygen, in using its oxidizing potential to kill pathogens. The more oxygen in the bloodstream, the more efficient the immune system is in combating pathogens. The process requires energy in the form of ATP.

2. Reduces fatigue: To prevent and cure cancer, a great asset is the reduction of fatigue. Many physicians prescribe medication to combat fatigue, but a great diet, exercise, and oxygen have a much more significant benefit. Cancer patients may get heart damage from chemotherapy drugs and radiation. Nitrous oxide supplements and exercise are very beneficial for cancer patients.

3. Prevention and curing cancer: Cancer cells love no oxygen. In many foreign nations, cancer physicians are prescribing exercise for cancer patients. They suggest 15 to 20 minutes a day of swimming, walking, or other light activities. For the prevention of cancer, physical exercises are a great help. Cancer physicians now believe oxygen is an essential element in preventing and curing cancer.

4. Exercise and oxygen help the brain: the brain requires about 20 percent of the total inhaled oxygen. Physical and mental activities are the most excellent ways to stimulate neurons, axons, and synapses. Oxygen boosts brainpower, optimal judgment, blood circulation, mental clarity, and cognitive function.

5. Increasing the use of the diaphragm for breathing: the diaphragm is very important for increasing oxygen. Using the diaphragm is the most effective way to get optimum body oxygen. This is a big help in increasing oxygen utilization. You can look up the many diaphragm exercises.

6. Exercise and oxygen reduce illnesses and infections: This is a significant factor in the prevention of diseases and cancer. Researchers have found that people who exercise regularly have fewer diseases and infections due to the increase in body oxygen and ATP.
These are a few of the great benefits of exercise and oxygen. Whole books have been written about the subject, so there is a lot more available information than is given here.

I want to mention about the marathon man. Recently, the newspaper wrote about a 100-year-old man who had just finished a 26.2-mile marathon. He said that he had run 43,500 miles in his lifetime. When asked why he thought he still had enough energy to run a marathon, the man mentioned that he ate lots of fruits and vegetables, and stayed away from sugar. Maybe we should use his judgment and advice to help us live to 100 years.

Merle E. Loudon, B.S., D.D.S. graduated from the University Of Washington School Of Dentistry in 1957. After two years of service in the Air Force, he started a private practice in East Wenatchee, Washington. For the past 45 years his practice has included Orthodontics and TM Dysfunction treatment specializing in temporomandibular pain treatment, headache, head and neck pain control, functional jaw orthopedics, and straight wire orthodontics. Associated with mercury elimination, oral surgery, crowns and bridges is TMJ treatment, diet control, parasite elimination, intestinal cleansing and healing (wellness).

Merle E. Loudon, B.S., D.D.S. has taught advanced courses for dentists on TM Dysfunction treatment, orthodontics and related pain control for more than 30 years. In 1972 he was the first dentist in Washington to use straight wire orthodontics and the first dentist to correct vertical deficiencies in children by placing vertical dimension-primary molar buildups and/or vertical (erupting) appliances. Merle E. Loudon, B.S., D.D.S. was involved with the first group of dentists to recognize lateral tongue splinting in young infants and integrate functional and fixed techniques to correct vertical dimension deficiencies and condylar placement. He is the originator of vertical dimension-primary molar build ups, which help to correct deep bites and Otitus media in children. He invented the Loudon-Chateau Anterior Repositioning Appliance, the functional muscle malocclusion concept, the twelve commandments of occlusion and the vertical overbite domino rule. Merle E. Loudon, B.S., D.D.S. has written numerous articles in several American and foreign dental journals and has lectured in over 50 cities and 7 foreign countries on functional jaw orthopedics, fixed wire orthodontics, Otitus media treatment and TM Dysfunction treatment. He has been instrumental in setting up criteria for teaching in the International Association For Orthodontics, including the certified instructor program.

Dr. Loudon is a member of The American Dental Association, Diplomat and Senior Instructor in the International Association for Orthodontics, and is a Diplomat of the American Academy of Pain Management. He also is a member of the American Orthodontic Society.
