We all struggle to set time aside for “recharging our batteries,” whether we are at home or the office. We have many distractions, interruptions, and demands that do not allow us to relax and rebuild our energy.
When we hear of Oxygen Bars opening up in the big cities, we think this is a new trendy discovery, or a new concept, but in reality, it is that oxygen therapy has been used safely for 100 years all over the world. Dr. Otto Warburg, a Nobel Prize winner in medicine (1931), did considerable research on the body’s need for oxygen and claimed, “The fundamental cause of all degenerative disease is a condition called hypoxia” (oxygen starvation at the cellular level).
Today, health practitioners are realizing the significance of Dr. Warburg’s work and the vital role this important element plays in maintaining our health and wellbeing. Oxygen is involved in every major process of the body. When oxygen levels decrease, critical systems of the body break down, health suffers, and the body shows signs of aging. Lowered immune response and fatigue are among the first signs of an insufficient supply of oxygen.
Oxygen therapy is a treatment that provides your body with extra oxygen and it can help you:
- stimulate the immune system
- improve brain function and enhance memory
- oxidize heavy metals and other toxins for easy elimination through the skin
- inactivate viruses, bacteria, yeast, fungi, and parasites
- promote cleaner, softer, rejuvenated skin
- create a feeling of wellbeing
- relax and loosen muscles, increasing flexibility
- produce restful sleep
- relieve pain
At The Personal Wellness Center we created something called REWOT –Relaxation Exercise With Oxygen Therapy. This is done in a special chair with far-infrared heat which promotes healing and deep relaxation while the person breathes oxygen and listens to a guided imagery or hypnosis CD. People who are struggling with health issues, going through chemotherapy, or have high levels of stress can greatly benefit from REWOT when used regularly.
