Oxygen plays a vital role not only for obviously breathing but for cell health. The cells in our body need plenty of oxygen for healthy growth. If they are deprived then they will grow deformed, mutate or die.
Did you know that in 1931 Dr. Otto Warburg (Nobel prize winner) , discovered that the primary cause of cancer is directly related to cells which have been deprived of oxygen and in fact these cells really thrive and rejuvenate faster in an environment lacking in oxygen .
Other studies support this and it has also been discovered that a more alkaline pH in the body allows the body to increase its oxygen levels and therefore reduces not only the likelihood of cancer but also other illnesses. It is cited that illness cannot live in an alkaline body.
How can we increase the oxygen levels within our body to prevent ill health ?
1. Drink pure filtered water (alkaline filtered if possible) – Drinking enough water daily is key for flushing toxins out of the body and for maximising utilisation of oxygen in the body .
2. Alkaline diet – Increase intake of leafy greens and of plant-based foods and reduce the amount of processed foods (which are acidifying). Lemons and limes are very alkaline. You can read online for lists of acid and alkaline food sources.
3. Learn to breathe – Most people shallow breath, which is enhanced further by stress. In fact when you breathe using only the upper chest and inhale more air, it causes reduced oxygen levels in body cells. Deeper diaphragmatic breathing , slower breathing will help. Meditation, Yoga, Qi Gong, Tai chi and Swimming will all help.
4. Gentle Exercise – such as walking, Biking, Rebounding, Hiking or slow jogging will help your body utilize oxygen and remove waste through the lymphatic system.
