Exercise With Oxygen (EWOT)
Exercise With Oxygen Therapy
EWOT is the most powerful way to decrease inflammation in your body without using drugs. It’s why most people who have pain and fatigue feel better after the very first session. To utilize this therapy over time can help you reach new levels of health very quickly.
What is Exercising With Oxygen Therapy?
Exercise with Oxygen Therapy or EWOT (pronounced E-Watt) is the act of breathing higher concentrations of oxygen during exercise. To begin, we use an oxygen generator to fill a large medical grade bag that holds 900 liters of oxygen. A customized high-flow mask is attached to the bag (you use your own personal mask so sanitation is not an issue). Once you put on the mask and start exercising every breath you take is now comprised of 93% oxygen. It’s important to point out the normal air we all breathe is comprised of 21% oxygen. When you inhale, the O2 mask connected to the bag of oxygen does not allow any room air into your lungs. Only the oxygen in the bag is inhaled as a valve in the mask opens, then, as you exhale, CO2 exits through the CO2 port on the mask.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does it decrease inflammation and promote health?
EWOT does this in three ways:
- It improves oxygen circulation
- Restores blood flow to damaged tissue
- Increases ATP production
How does EWOT improve circulation?
Exercise with oxygen therapy gets oxygen into the arteries, veins and even the smallest capillaries that make up over 74 percent of your circulatory system. By increasing oxygen circulation in the body, your cells are getting the O2 that they need to process the millions of bio-chemical reactions they undergo every day. Insufficient oxygen supply to tissues of the body is a common cause of many diseases, disorders and pain syndromes, especially as we age.
What are the benefits of EWOT and restoring blood flow?
Restoring the flow of oxygen-rich blood promotes the expansion of constricted capillaries. When our capillaries are deprived of oxygen, they begin to swell, thereby preventing further oxygenation. Oxygen therapy, particularly EWOT, reduces capillary swelling, enhances oxygenation and promotes circulation.
One of the most well-known benefits of oxygen therapy is its ability to improve cerebral blood flow. It’s why many people report clarity of vision and thinking directly after a session.
What is the importance of increasing the production of ATP?
By increasing the production of ATP (adenosine triphosphate), you increase the source of fuel within the cells.
By increasing ATP, our blood cells separate so that they’re no longer stick to each other and can therefore absorb more oxygen. All other benefits of EWOT are downstream cascading effects of these three very important factors. Because exercise with oxygen therapy increases oxygen circulation, restores blood flow and increases the production of ATP, it may also benefit the body in the following ways:
- Increase immunity
- Reduces inflammation and pain
- Accelerates recovery from illness or injury
- Boosts energy
- Improves cardiovascular health
- Supports lung function/respiratory system
- Improve physical performance
- Allows for faster recovery after workouts
- Improves vision
- Improves mental capacity/memory
- Assists in weight loss
What conditions benefit most from EWOT?
We have found any condition where pain and fatigue are the major symptoms seem to get the best results. Lyme Disease, Type Two Diabetes, Autoimmune conditions and chronic joint issues like arthritis are the conditions we help most often.
