EWOT is an acronym for Exercise With Oxygen Therapy. EWOT is safe, effective, and easy to do. It can significantly alter cellular oxygenation, thereby helping you to feel, and look, years younger.
EWOT has been shown to combat the negative impacts of aging and, theoretically at least, to help people live longer. Life events such as travel, stress, both physical and emotional, and of course, aging, all reduce the amount of oxygen that is being delivered to the tissues of our body. As we age, our capacity to utilize oxygen decreases by 1% per year after the age of around 25. The EWOT process can restore the proper functioning of the oxygen transfer mechanism that becomes damaged with age.
How does EWOT do this?
This is a little scientific but I’ll try to keep it simple! There is about 21% oxygen in the air. Atmospheric pressure at sea level is around 760 mm and the partial pressure of oxygen entering the body’s lungs is known to be about 150 mm. However, oxygen in the lungs is diluted considerably with carbon dioxide, reducing the actual pressure to more like 100-110 mm. This pressure drives the oxygen from the lungs into the blood and via the arteries to the capillaries in the extremities of the body. The capillaries then release some of the oxygen to support individual cells.
With additional oxygen (over and above that of normal air) the oxygen pressure inside the lungs is increased, forcing more oxygen from the lungs into the blood. This increases arterial pressure. There is a limit to how much oxygen the haemoglobin will carry, but “mass action” (by sheer volume of oxygen in the lungs) dictates that plasma will absorb extra oxygen (where haemoglobin is saturated) and a lot of that extra oxygen will get into the tissues.
With EWOT you are exercising as well. This exercise increases the circulation, creating a greater pressure to drive oxygen into the capillaries. The increase in quantity via mass action and arterial pressure adds to the transfer mechanism of oxygen from the air to blood and plasma, and then to cells in the tissues. This creates a high level of extra oxygen being delivered to the cells.
When we age the capacity for the lungs to transfer oxygen to the blood, and of the blood to deliver oxygen to the cells diminishes. Additionally the capillary walls become swollen (inflamed) as well as less elastic. This decreases the flow of blood to cells, and thereby decreases the amount of oxygen getting to the cells,
EWOT has been shown to reduce the swelling in the cells of the capillary walls, thereby improving blood and oxygen delivery to the tissues. It also improves the transfer of oxygen from the lungs to the blood and then from the blood to the cells.
Basically, the body’s ability to transfer oxygen from the lungs to the cells is perhaps the most significant factor in whether you live a healthy life or not. Because this transfer mechanism becomes damaged with age, we then become more susceptible to illness, our cells are not energised adequately, and we begin to feel the effects of aging.
However, EWOT aids the body in repairing this vital mechanism, helping to give you back your youthful vigour.
