EWOT: The Definitive Guide to Exercise with Oxygen

If you’re new to EWOT you may be won­der­ing what it is and/or how it works.

EWOT (exer­cise with oxy­gen ther­a­py) is a method of breath­ing high­er lev­els of oxy­gen dur­ing exer­cise in order to increase the amount of oxy­gen in your blood plas­ma. If done cor­rect­ly EWOT can pro­duce many desired effects in as lit­tle as 15 min­utes a few times a week. 

When you deliv­er and uti­lize more oxy­gen to your cells you: 

  • Increase the ener­getic sta­tus and effi­cien­cy of your entire body
  • Expe­ri­ence improve­ment in tis­sue and organ function
  • Stim­u­late your immune sys­tem, reduc­ing the prob­a­bil­i­ty of future illness 
  • Reduce inflam­ma­tion in the body, start­ing with the vas­cu­lar sys­tem and joints
  • Pro­duce the ener­gy of youth, cre­at­ing short-term health and longevity. 

These ben­e­fits are just a few of the many pos­i­tive results that come from EWOT.

Using EWOT treat­ment pro-active­ly and pre­ven­ta­tive­ly is attrac­tive because it is some­thing you can do nat­u­ral­ly — it doesn’t require any pre­scrip­tion drugs or surg­eries. That’s why many have turned to EWOT. If done cor­rect­ly EWOT is a sim­ple and pow­er­ful modal­i­ty which uses nat­u­ral­ly occur­ring oxy­gen to pro­duce ame­lio­ra­tive results.

The major problem of EWOT

Tra­di­tion­al­ly, EWOT is com­mon­ly pro­mot­ed using a ‘trick­le’ method: inhal­ing a sup­ple­ment­ed oxy­gen source of 5 to 10 liters per minute through a can­nu­la or rebreather mask while exer­cis­ing.  Here the body receives high­er lev­els of oxy­gen than what is avail­able from room air. 

This method of EWOT becomes ther­a­peu­ti­cal­ly effec­tive at 9 hours accord­ing to the research of Dr. von Ardenne, who wrote the book on Oxy­gen Mul­ti­step Therapy. 

Regard­less of your rea­sons for using EWOT treat­ment, the time it takes to get to a ther­a­peu­tic out­come is deter­mined by a few fac­tors: the great­est of which is the oxy­gen flow rate.   

This arti­cle will exam­ine tra­di­tion­al EWOT and sci­en­tif­i­cal­ly illus­trate for you how the LiveO2 sys­tem can pro­vide the same results (if not bet­ter) of tra­di­tion­al EWOT with­out as much time, mon­ey and phys­i­cal exertion.

But before we get into specifics, let’s take a step back and look at the root prob­lem that EWOT solves in the first place: inflam­ma­tion.

Exercise with Oxygen Therapy for Inflammation

Many the­o­ries that point to  inflam­ma­tion as the root cause of all dis­ease. In this arti­cle from Dr Mer­co­la, over 20+ dis­eases can be traced back to inflam­ma­to­ry mechanisms!

This is extreme­ly impor­tant! If you’re research­ing EWOT to treat a symp­tom in a nat­ur­al way, there’s a pret­ty sol­id chance it’s root cause can be traced back to inflammation. 

The good news is: oxy­gen is the mas­ter anti-inflam­ma­to­ry. We know this because oxy­gen defi­cien­cies trig­ger inflam­ma­tion, first in our vas­cu­lar sys­tem and then in our tis­sues. To gain more under­stand­ing of this process, check out this 4-minute expla­na­tion video.

Live O2 is the Ultimate EWOT Machine

As illus­trat­ed in the above video, an oxy­gen short­age is essen­tial­ly a “bot­tle­neck” of your body’s blood flow. 

That’s why we use the “plumb­ing” analogy…it visu­al­ly rep­re­sents what needs to hap­pen to the bot­tle­neck: a flush out.

This flush hap­pens with super-oxy­genat­ed plas­ma, or a super-oxy­gena­tion event.

But most EWOT sys­tems take at least one 9-hour work­out to deliv­er ther­a­peu­tic oxy­gena­tion! This is because the lev­els of oxy­gen being deliv­ered are at around 5–10 LPM (liters per minute), so it’s going to take some time. 

LiveO2 and LiveO2 Adap­tive Con­trast™ deliv­er oxy­gen flow rates that meet or exceed the researched lev­els required to reach a ther­a­peu­tic result in 15 minutes.

LiveO2 and LiveO2 Adap­tive Con­trast™ work faster and bet­ter than EWOT because they achieve high­er oxy­gen con­cen­tra­tions. More oxy­gen lets your body heal more and recov­er faster. That’s why we are more efficient.

Here’s a chart to show the com­par­i­son of oxy­gen deliv­ery amount (LPM/liters per minute), speed, and price: 

LPM Speed Price
EWOT 5–10 36Hr $1,000
LiveO2 50+ 15 Min $2,295
LiveO2 AC 50++ <15 Min $4,150

 

Why Choose LiveO2 Over Other forms of EWOT?

Obvi­ous­ly, the price point in the above chart shows are sys­tems as more expen­sive than EWOT. It’s impor­tant for you to under­stand 3 facets of LiveO2 that make own­ing a sys­tem the best choice for oxy­gen therapy:

1. LiveO2 Only Takes 15 Minutes!

The LiveO2 sys­tem uses some form of exer­cise to get your heart rate up. We nor­mal­ly use exer­cise bikes in our event and in-per­son train­ings, but many LiveO2 prac­ti­tion­ers around the U.S. and Mex­i­co have used var­i­ous meth­ods from light tread­mill walk­ing to sim­ple arm rais­es for patients with more seri­ous conditions.

Exer­cise is a daunt­ing word to many — and when seek­ing treat­ment for a con­di­tion, some peo­ple expe­ri­ence self-doubt and/or a gen­er­al neg­a­tive con­no­ta­tion com­mon­ly asso­ci­at­ed with exer­cise. If you’ve fall­en out of the habit, “exer­cise” can be a scary word.

The LiveO2 sys­tem doesn’t ask much! We don’t ask you to pump iron for an hour in the gym or hit the tread­mill to run miles upon miles. 

All we need is to get your heart rate close to a tar­get lev­el need­ed for ini­ti­at­ing super oxy­gen deliv­ery. And, based on the meth­ods in Van Ardenne’s Oxy­gen Mul­ti-step Ther­a­py, we’ve con­clud­ed that 15-min­utes is the most effec­tive time dose need­ed to ensure our oxy­gen deliv­ery is maximized. 

15 min­utes of move­ment is achiev­able by almost any­one, even indi­vid­u­als with seri­ous con­di­tions. If you do have a seri­ous con­di­tion, you absolute­ly want to check with your doc­tor or a LiveO2 rec­om­mend­ed prac­ti­tion­er before engag­ing in any type of exercise.

One of our favorite use cas­es for the “con­ve­nience and fea­si­bil­i­ty” aspect of LiveO2, comes from a cor­po­rate well­ness cus­tomer of ours in Lub­bock, TX: Ver­ti­cal Tur­bine Systems.

After adding in LiveO2 to their cor­po­rate well­ness plan, VTS (a man­u­fac­tur­ing com­pa­ny with many man­u­al labor employ­ees) allows its employ­ees to do LiveO2 ses­sions as part of their work day. 

Employ­ees not only are paid to work­out, but excit­ed about the quick LiveO2 ses­sions because they are short and effec­tive — they feel great after­ward and make it home to their fam­i­lies with much more energy.

This illus­trates how VTS has lever­aged the con­ve­nience and time fac­tor in their employ­ees’ men­tal per­cep­tion of com­plet­ing a LiveO2 ses­sion. It’s a low-bar­ri­er entry to heal­ing and/or opti­miz­ing peak performance!

Good for employ­er. Good for employee.

2. The System Pays for Itself in the first few sessions 

In terms of price point, the LiveO2 sys­tems are more expen­sive than tra­di­tion­al EWOT. How­ev­er, our LiveO2 sys­tems deliv­er ther­a­peu­tic results in expo­nen­tial­ly less time com­pared to EWOT sys­tems. In fact, 36x faster, by deliv­er­ing the need­ed flow of oxy­gen and by tar­get­ing opti­mal breath and heart rates. 

The cru­cial val­ue in LiveO2 sys­tems real­ly is the time it takes to see results. When you fac­tor this into your over­all pur­suit for an opti­mal, healthy life you’re able to reap the ben­e­fits of oxy­gen ther­a­py soon­er with LiveO2, there­fore mak­ing your invest­ment much more valu­able over a longer peri­od of time.

Think of it this way: your time is valu­able — it’s some­thing you won’t get more of. 

How do you val­ue your time?

Let’s imag­ine you val­ue 1 hour of your time at $100.

The cost of see­ing results from tra­di­tion­al EWOT for you would be $900 over a span of 9 hours.

In con­trast, the cost of see­ing results from LiveO2 EWOT would be $25 over a span of 15 minutes! 

Think of all the time you have left to uti­lize! More impor­tant­ly, you can con­sec­u­tive­ly use LiveO2 15-minute ses­sions to con­tin­ue improv­ing with­out work­ing out hours to com­plete your session. 

Doug Allen, the CEO of VTS (video above) says it per­fect­ly: “It costs much more to be sick than it ever did to be well.”

His point illus­trates the idea that invest­ing in a sys­tem to fos­ter long-term well­ness is mon­ey much bet­ter spent than pur­chas­ing pre­scrip­tion after prescription.

One approach to well­ness is sus­tain­able. The oth­er is not.

We’re con­fi­dent that once you invest in a LiveO2 sys­tem, you’ll real­ize soon enough that it has more than paid for itself in a month or less and will last you for years longer!

3. The Result is EARNED, Not Given

Phys­i­cal­ly, when it comes to super-oxy­genat­ing your body, it is only fair that you work for it. 

Not earn­ing this result is short-sight­ed, because you’re essen­tial­ly telling your body, “Hey, here’s some free oxy­gen: you don’t need to do any­thing but just sit back and receive it.

We’re train­ing our bod­ies every day, whether we know it or not. There’s stim­uli every­where around us. For­tu­nate­ly, it doesn’t take a lot of work to intro­duce a new “pro­gram” to your body. 

It’s bet­ter to lever­age the already-exist­ing sys­tem your body has for intro­duc­ing oxy­gen to the blood and super­charge it so you give your body an EARNED result, at your own pace.

We engi­neered LiveO2 to be that way: it pur­pose­ful­ly uses a form of move­ment or exer­cise to chal­lenge your body and lever­age it’s nat­ur­al sys­tem to be a car­ri­er for super-oxygenation. 

By achiev­ing an earned result, your body goes through a resat­u­ra­tion process: dur­ing a LiveO2 train­ing ses­sion, we see indi­vid­u­als begin to deliv­er super-oxy­genat­ed blood to their tis­sues, which even­tu­al­ly includes all major organs of the body.

Let’s exam­ine one exam­ple with the liver:

Your liv­er is essen­tial­ly a blood reser­voir. Dur­ing a LiveO2 ses­sion, you start shoot­ing a lot of new, super-oxy­genat­ed and healthy blood to it, so the liv­er dis­cards the “mediocre” blood. We can rec­og­nize this “sludge tide” in a LiveO2 train­ing ses­sion when the indi­vid­ual may become more slug­gish as the body clears the released tox­ins quickly. 

This is a good sign! The body is begin­ning to get rid of things it doesn’t need.

Interested in LiveO2 for exponentially better EWOT results?

The type of indi­vid­ual that has pur­chased a LiveO2 sys­tem varies. We have users who are doc­tors, NFL foot­ball play­ers, peo­ple with injuries who need recov­ery, Olympic swim­mers, can­cer patients and bio­hack­ers look­ing to opti­mize their performance.

We have two dif­fer­ent sys­tems: LiveO2 Stan­dard and LiveO2 Adap­tive Con­trast™. Below, you’ll find infor­ma­tion on both so you can com­pare which one may work best for you. 

The LiveO2 Standard System

LiveO2 Stan­dard ampli­fies the ben­e­fits of exer­cise to get a high­er heart rate which dri­ves more oxy­gen deep­er into your body. This means you’ll get more ben­e­fit with less work. You will feel phys­i­cal changes in about 3 min­utes and get real results in 15 minutes! 

The great thing about hav­ing your own sys­tem is that you don’t have to pay to do it at a doctor’s office, and you can share the ben­e­fits with your family!

If you’ve nev­er tried LiveO2 before, we’d rec­om­mend find­ing a LiveO2 rec­om­mend­ed prac­ti­tion­er to pro­vide you with a ses­sion first. Click here to see a list of our rec­om­mend­ed doc­tors.

Addi­tion­al­ly, if you already are the own­er of an tra­di­tion­al EWOT, you can upgrade it to a LiveO2 Stan­dard sys­tem to see these results! Click here to see our Con­ver­sion Kit and oth­er upgrade options.

You can also upgrade your sys­tem to a LiveO2 Adap­tive Con­trast™ Sys­tem (infor­ma­tion below).

The LiveO2 Adaptive Contrast™ System

LiveO2 Adap­tive Con­trast™ more than dou­bles the per­for­mance of LiveO2 Standard.

LiveO2 Adap­tive Con­trast™ is our pre­mi­um oxy­gen sys­tem and switch­es between high oxy­gen and the equiv­a­lent of high altitude. 

It’s pret­ty easy for your body to breathe with just high oxy­gen, and this lets your heart and lungs take it easy. LiveO2 AC™ changes this, switch­ing you to a high moun­tain ele­va­tions of 10,000 feet. These switch­es make your heart and lungs work hard­er, so the oxy­gen does a lot more. 

Click here to view our Adap­tive Con­trast™ sys­tems or con­tact us to ask a ques­tion about using the LiveO2 AC™ Sys­tem. (We do not answer any med­ical ques­tions, so please do not sub­mit any as we’ll just have to defer you to your MD.)

LiveO2 EWOT for Health Recovery 

We’re not doc­tors and don’t pre­tend to be. At LiveO2, we’ve sim­ply engi­neered a prod­uct based on sci­ence show­ing how oxy­gen mul­ti-step ther­a­py can be effective.

That being said, we’ve proven to many doc­tors and prac­ti­tion­ers all over the world, that the LiveO2 sys­tem can help reach recov­ery faster than many tra­di­tion­al treatments.

If you’re inter­est­ed in oxy­gen ther­a­py for a med­ical con­di­tion, please refer to the LiveO2 list of Rec­om­mend­ed Doc­tors. All of the prac­ti­tion­ers list­ed have ample train­ing in our sys­tem and can help intro­duce you to the sys­tem and build a pro­to­col for treat­ing your med­ical condition.
