Oxygen Cleansing and Detoxification Program|
Dr. K. Steven Whiting
Each of the 100 trillion cells that make up your body are, in reality, individual living systems enveloped in an outer coating called a cell membrane, which keeps the living unit in tact. Cleansing the individual cells of the body requires the use of a substance that is able to not only permeate the membrane of the living cells, but the many other protective barriers the body has in place as well. One of the more difficult barriers to penetrate is the blood/brain barrier. This is designed to prevent harmful substances that have entered the internal environment of the body from being carried by the blood, into the brain. This mechanism will allow only a specific, finite number of substances through. If we want to also cleanse and detoxify the brain tissue, we need to choose a medium that will travel freely throughout the body, to every cell.
It's hard to imagine being deficient in oxygen; many of us are and have been, for years. One of the obvious ways in which the body obtains oxygen is through breathing, yet in our sedentary society, very few people have the opportunity to really fill their lungs with oxygen. In fact, if you sit up straight right now and take ten really deep breaths, you may find out just how out of shape your lungs really are! It can be most uncomfortable.
Because of this sedentary lifestyle, the lack of exercise, especially as we age, can provide less than optimal oxygenation of the blood and body tissues.
Oxygen is the universal cleanser. Through the process of oxidation, the thousands of potentially harmful toxins, which enter the body, are broken down or 'rusted' down into their basic elements in readiness for harmless elimination. As the number of toxins in the body rises, so the need for oxygen also increases. This circumstance can easily produce an even greater reduction of available oxygen. Further, the presence of chronic, ongoing disease drains the body of larger amounts of oxygen in detoxifying the byproducts of the disorder.
It has been discovered that 'food grade' hydrogen peroxide can be safely introduced, orally or by intravenous infusion, into the body. This effectively raises the blood oxygen levels throughout the entire body and may be the answer to many of our present-day chronic and stubborn infectious diseases.
Hydrogen peroxide is completely natural. In fact, when it breaks down, the residue is simply oxygen and pure water. Under certain circumstances, your body has the ability to produce hydrogen peroxide as a 'natural killer' of pathogens. Use of hydrogen peroxide to increase bodily oxygen is not new. It has been used around the world since the turn of the 19th Century.
Raising blood oxygen levels is important for many reasons besides its cleansing and detoxifying properties. Most pathogens, viruses and bacteria, which can enter our bodies and ultimately make us sick, have an anaerobic metabolism. In other words, they survive best in an oxygen deficient environment. When we increase the oxygen to the living tissues of the body, these pathogens cannot effectively multiply and in many cases, are destroyed outright. Recent studies have shown that the virus suspected of causing Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS), as well as herpes, hepatitis, Epstein Barr, and cytomegalovirus, join the group of viruses that are lipid coated. It has also been shown that many lipid-enveloped viruses are destroyed in the presence of concentrated oxygen!
|Is Oxygen Cleansing and Detoxification Safe?
Many critics of the use of oxygen therapies claim that since all peroxides are free radicals, there is a serious danger in using hydrogen peroxide internally. While it is true that cellular damage due to free radical invasion is a source of concern, we have learned that not all free radicals are created equal. Oxygen is found in simple compounds such as hydrogen peroxide. When it breaks down they produce the 'free radical' or singlet oxygen. In the case of oral hydrogen peroxide, this breakdown is so rapid that the singlet or free radical oxygen particles pair up with others of a like nature, forming stabilized oxygen once again. This process takes about one ten thousandths of a second. During this incredibly brief period of time, the singlet oxygen particles are unable to effectively produce any free radical damage.
The safety of ingesting an oxygen-donating substance depends completely upon what substance is being used. In the case of hydrogen peroxide, the end results of breakdown produce oxygen and pure water. This is not the case, however, with other forms of oxygen donating substances.
The most common substance used in current retail products sold for oxygen enhancement is chlorine dioxide. Chlorine dioxide is easy to use and remains stable in almost any solution. This is why it is favored over hydrogen peroxide, which is very unstable and almost impossible to suspend in any liquid other than plain water.
The problem with chlorine dioxide however, is that when it breaks down, while it does yield an increase in oxygen, the byproducts are chlorine and oxygen. Chlorine is the stuff we remove from our drinking water because we all know it is a cancer-causing substance! Taking these products is very dangerous and anything containing chlorine dioxide should be completely avoided.
We are therefore left with hydrogen peroxide. What form is best to take? Firstly, any hydrogen peroxide that is to be ingested internally must be of a food grade nature. Food grade hydrogen peroxide has absolutely no impurities, unlike the antiseptic versions sold in pharmacies, which should never be taken internally.
Food grade hydrogen peroxide comes, generally, in a 35 percent solution. This concentration is so strong, it will burn your skin and destroy living tissues. Therefore, it must be diluted down to a tolerable strength.
Mixing, handling and diluting food grade hydrogen peroxide is cumbersome and dangerous. The best way of introducing hydrogen peroxide and subsequently oxygen, into your body is by using a pre-mixed, stabilized form of hydrogen peroxide, buffered by a proprietary process and combined with aloe vera. This product, unlike using the pure food grade hydrogen peroxide in water, is safe and releases the oxygen to the system slowly, over a 15 to 20 minutes period, whereas, the pure hydrogen peroxide releases in seconds after swallowing. This rapid release causes much of the beneficial oxygen to be exhaled before it can be absorbed through the stomach wall.
|How Does Oxygen Work?
As with all phases of life, there must be a balance, hot and cold, wet and dry, attraction and repulsion. The Oriental philosophies express this two-way flow as the yin and yang.
The human body is no exception to this law of opposites, interacting to form a balance. These opposites are created through Electro-magnetism.
The four basic elements required for all life, including human life, are oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen and carbon. Along with minor elements, these are the building blocks of life. In looking at these elements, we find the magic of magnetic polarity at work, creating the push and pull, or yin and yang, of the opposites. The two opposites in all animal life are classified as anabolism and catabolism.
Putting all of this together then, we find that hydrogen is anabolic in nature, hence it tends to solidify and concentrate. Oxygen is catabolic, and tends to dissolve and disintegrate. A combination of the two forces is absolutely essential to the continuance of the living organism. It is this disintegrating faculty of oxygen that makes it such a powerful internal cellular cleanser.
While the use of oxygen has many health benefits, the focus of our discussion herein rests with cleansing and detoxifying. The following program, called the 'Oxy Flush', has been used with amazing benefits in cases of extreme toxicity, chronic degenerative illness, acute infectious disease, and under other circumstances. This program will cleanse the body at the cellular level in four weeks. (For further, detailed information on the health benefits of oxygen, I suggest you ready my booklet entitled Effective Oxygen Therapy for Chronic Conditions, available through the Institute.
|The Oxy Flush
It is important that you obtain the buffered oxygenated aloe vera mentioned above, for this program. The amounts of product recommended are for this particular product. The use of any other form of oxygen is not to be considered. If you do not have access to oxygenated aloe vera in a buffered suspension, we suggest you write or call The Institute of Nutritional Science for a source.
Week One: Begin by taking one ounce of buffered oxygenated aloe vera two times daily, on an empty stomach.
Week Two: Take one ounce of buffered oxygenated aloe vera three times per day, on an empty stomach.
Week Three-Six: Take two ounces of buffered oxygenated aloe vera three times per day, on an empty stomach. Stay at this dose for the entire two weeks.
After the six-week program, reduce the intake of buffered oxygenated aloe vera to one ounce twice daily for as long as you feel the need.
After week six, take 10 multi-acidophilus capsules on an empty stomach for 10 days to properly reimplant the healthy bacteria.
*Note: Oxygen products MUST be taken on an empty stomach, a half-hour before or three hours after meals. Taking them with food causes a rapid release of oxygen and most is lost by exhaling. Further, in the presence of food, oxygen products can cause nausea.
There are many other healthful uses and applications for a high quality, liquid, buffered oxygen product. In Cahper 17, you will find specific protocols for hundreds of health challenges. Oxygen therapy has proven beneficial in many of them and the correct dosages are outlined in each relevant health challenge protocol.
