Reduced oxygen during respiratory injury inhibits immunity and decreases energy production. Reduced immunity makes it difficult for the body to overcome infection causing respiratory infections, such as the flu, to become long lasting and even dangerous.
Influenza and respiratory infections cause body-wide oxygen deficiency:
This guide explains how to use LiveO2 and exercise to compensate for reduced oxygen levels during a respiratory illness.
This method is intended to optimize tissue oxygen levels by creating lung pressure swings that increase gas transfer to partially overcome the inhibitory gas transfer effects of mucus and injury to lung cells.
Asphyxiation limits metabolic energy and prolongs recovery. Resolution of asphyxiation restores oxygen to near normal levels to optimize energy during the episode and maintain immune performance even though the lungs are injured.
The method uses extra oxygen and physical challenge to increase oxygen levels in the body. Most users experience near-normal energy, good immune performance, and minimal discomfort. The only real challenge is overcoming the natural instinct to lay in bed, instead of exercising when you are sick.
This method describes three techniques helpful during different phases of the illness cycle:
• Incubation support when exposure is suspected
• Acute support — when exertion is not possible due to illness
• Recovery support — to optimize energy and immunity during recovery
This loss of oxygenation inhibits the immune system and makes it harder for the body to overcome the infection. This effect explains why respiratory infections last a long time and tend to be dangerous for those weakened by age or other factors.
LiveO2 is not intended to treat the flu or any other medical condition. This document explains the role of oxygen deficiency in the fatigue and reduced immune performance that accompany the flu. LiveO2 is only intended to for use with some form of exercise or while in a sauna. Oxygen has NO known direct inhibitory effect on a virus. Use of oxygen at rest has little to no beneficial effect because elevated heart rate and respiration are required to move the oxygen from the lung to the tissue and create the pressure swings that overcome the mucus barrier.
