EXERCISE WITH OXYGEN THERAPY
What is Exercise with Oxygen Therapy (EWOT)?
Exercise with oxygen therapy consists of using supplemental oxygen which is given to a patient while they are exercising in order to enhance the function and healing of the brain, nervous system, and body.
Who can benefit from Exercise with Oxygen Therapy?
The benefits of EWOT are wide ranging. Why? The therapy delivers the most important nutrient for your life and the life of your tissues. This is why people, from professional athletes to people that are sick and suffering, use oxygen therapy. For instance, we see professional athletes using oxygen on the sidelines of sporting events. In our office, we see incredible results in caring for patients with chronic conditions such as back pain, migraines and headaches, fibromyalgia, vertigo, and other chronic conditions.
How does Exercise with Oxygen Therapy work?
The brain and nervous system need two things to survive and heal: fuel and activation. The fuel comes in the form of oxygen and glucose. Since our cerebellum is the most oxygen dependant organ and the relay station for signals from the body to the brain, emphasis is put on stimulating this organ. We do so by exciting the cuneo-cerebellar tract (using the arms) to the cerebellum while supported with supplemental oxygen. EWOT supports the brain and body’s cell function to help the body heal faster.
