Dr. von Ardenne on Cancer, Inflammation and Oxygen
Developed in the late 1960s by Professor von Ardenne, (a student of Dr. Otto Warburg, best known for his pioneering research on the connection between lack of oxygen and cancer), Oxygen Multistep Therapy combines oxygen therapy, drugs that facilitate intracellular oxygen turnover, and physical exercise adapted to individual performance levels. This unique therapy has diversified into more than 20 different treatment variants and is now practiced in several hundred settings throughout Europe. Ardenne put his finger on how inflammation interferes with oxygen transfer to cells.
“It is believed that cancer is caused by an accumulation of mutations in cells of the body,” says Dr. Carlo M. Croce, professor and chair of molecular virology, immunology and medical genetics. “Our study suggests that miR-155, which is associated with inflammation, increases the mutation rate and might be a key player in inflammation-induced cancers generally.” This and many other studies show how inflammation can help cause cancer. Chronic inflammation due to infection or to conditions such as chronic inflammatory bowel disease is associated with up to 25% of all cancers.
Low oxygenation can accelerate malignant progression and metastasis, thereby creating a poorer prognosis irrespective of which cancer treatment is used. We already know that Apoptosis of T-leukemia and B-myeloma cancer cells can be induced by hyperbaric oxygen.[iii] If oxygen content in a cell is reduced by 35% of its normal requirement, then that particular cell will eventually turn cancerous.
On Professor von Ardenne’s site they say that, “This switching mechanism is interpreted as a re-enlargement of the capillary narrowed by oxygen deficiency (old age, disease, distress). The re-enlargement appears after increased oxygen uptake of the blood and improved oxygen utilization of human tissue over a certain time period.”
Resolved inflammation restores the blood supply to tissue – and allows the tissue to return to normal aerobic metabolism. Professor Ardenne showed that stress triggers persistent inflammation,which locks an escalating percentage of the body, and muscles into anaerobic metabolism – especially with advancing age.[iv]
Performing EWOT with the Maxx O2 system specifically targets capillary inflammation with bursts of plasma dissolved oxygen at five times the level that were possible under the original design of Dr. von Ardenne. Modern EWOT takes oxygen therapies to a new level with the simple invention of an oxygen reservoir bag that stores up the oxygen before you do your 15 minutes of training.
Typically, the oxygen multi-step therapy used to consist of an 18-day, 36-hour program. Hyperbaric treatments follow similar patterns, but with Maxx O2 that amount of time is brought down to only 15 minutes a day. In fifteen minutes one can blow the cells doors open allowing them to detoxify as they gulp down high levels of oxygen.
Microbes and cancer cells cannot live in high oxygen concentrations. Therefore, what happens to these anaerobic viruses and bacteria and cancer cells is they get wiped out like Custer at his last stand.
Numerous studies have shown that tumor hypoxia, in which portions of the tumor have significantly low oxygen concentrations, is linked with more aggressive tumor behavior and poorer prognosis.[v] Rather than succumbing to hypoxic conditions, the lack of oxygen commonly creates cancer cells and tumors.
Starved of oxygen the body will become ill, and if this persists we die. The more oxygen we have in our system, the more energy we produce meaning the healthier we are. Oxygen is the source of life to all cells and medicine that focuses on providing high levels of oxygen to the capillary beds is extremely effective therapeutically.
With EWOT anyone who can exercise can ignite or create a ramjet where oxygen is injected into the cells with intensity that blasts open the doors of the cell walls allowing oxygen in and poisons out.
Maxx O2 employs a simple improvement over both hyperbaric chambers and Oxygen Multi Step Therapy that insures the maximum amount of oxygen gets to where it is needed the most—to damaged and inflamed tissues and to those cells who have lost control of themselves—BAD cells—so they are annihilated with oxygen.
Maxx O2 is simply the best EWOT system out there. The new mask makes breathing in massive amounts of oxygen easier. The Maxx O2 system offers not only the highest quality, HEPA filtered oxygen reservoir, but also a patented rib cage that puts pressure on the bag to force the air out and into the mask for a remarkable increase in oxygen flow and ease of use. Also the reservoir bag does not leak like a sieve.
15 Minutes to Cellular Heaven
In the never-ending fight against cancer as well as the aging process, we have found a therapy that gives us the edge. In fifteen minutes one can open the cells allowing them to detoxify as they gulp down higher levels of oxygen.
Exercise is Powerful Medicine
One of the most potent cancer-fighting weapons is exercise. Several studies have shown that physical activity is linked with decreased risk of some cancers, particularly breast and colon cancer. People who followed healthy lifestyle habits, including exercising for more than 30 minutes daily, lowered their risk of colorectal cancer, according to a study published online in October in the British Medical Journal.
Women who had a family history of breast cancer reduced their risk by one-fourth by doing 20 minutes of moderate or vigorous physical activity at least five times a week, along with maintaining a healthy lifestyle in other ways, according to a study published in October in the journal Breast Cancer Research.
A study of 45 peer-reviewed articles published from January 1950 to August 2011 shows that exercisers are less likely to die of their cancers than non-exercisers. In addition, observational studies strongly showed that exercise is associated with reduced death from breast and colon cancers specifically.[vi] Those who exercised were also less likely to die from other diseases such as heart attacks.
For patients who have gone through breast or colon cancer treatment, regular exercise has been found to reduce recurrence of the disease by up to 50 %. A study published in the Journal of Pain and Symptom Management; found that patients who exercised regularly before their diagnosis were more likely to keep up their routines afterwards. Being thinner helps beat breast cancer. Risks of your disease returning rises in step with weight.
Working out on a stationary bicycle or treadmill, while breathing concentrated oxygen is perfect for controlling and disciplining your efforts while receiving the levels of oxygen necessary to threaten cancer cells in your body.
