Oxygen/Oxidative Medicine

Oxygen therapies are medical treatments that are used to increase the oxygen concentration in the body. Oxidative therapies are medical treatments that effect electron concentration in the body. Electrons and protons are charged particles that are involved in all aspects of human function and metabolism.

Both modalities directly or indirectly affect the amount of available oxygen the cells and tissue have for their metabolic needs. A good example of an oxygenation therapy is breathing Ionized Oxygen or Singlet Oxygen Therapy. A good example of an oxidative therapy is the medical use of Ozone, Intravenous Hydrogen Peroxide, and Photo-Oxidation. The body uses oxygen not only to produce energy and feed our cells but also to oxidize various bacteria, viruses, fungi, toxins, malignant cells, and other harmful substances.

These treatments are effective for a variety of health conditions such as infections, allergies, chronic fatigue, circulation disorders, autoimmune disease, cancer, chronic pain and most digestive illnesses.
