When I heard this I had to stop and pause for a second. Took a look at the periodic table and…….opened myself up to learning more.

So, turns out that when we don’t have enough oxygen in our body we are not able to absorb iron properly. Do you know of anyone who has this issue? Also, our body is not able to produce enough hemoglobin which causes the blood cells to stick together and clump up. Instead of being buoyant and separate. When you go for a CBC blood test. Your doctor actually tests for hemoglobin, It is what carries/delivers oxygen to cells and tissue. Guess how hemoglobin is described? As an iron-rich protein. Is it a coincidence that someone that is low on iron is also low in oxygen? Another sign also deals with the blood is the color. If the color of your blood is reddish brown, black, purple or any dark color, you are extremely low in oxygen. Chances are you are always tired, have difficulty focusing because of it. Healthy oxygenated blood is bright cardinal red. Women have the fortunate ability to check on this monthly. If not, the next time you scratch bleed for whatever reason, take a look at it. I  tried this out about 4/5 years ago and gave it a whirl with sulfur. Within 3 weeks the difference between the color of my blood was night and day. It looked as if it was shocked with a volt of electricity!

The human body is about 65% water. When we think of nature and bodies of water what do we see? That running water that envelope oxygen into them don’t have the same problem as still waters such as lakes and ponds. Still water is constantly battling algae blooms and other infections until a source of oxygen is placed there to keep the water clean. That’s why they place fountain and other air pumps in lakes and ponds to circulate the oxygen in the water.

I know what you’re thinking. How is this, we should never be low on oxygen because it’s in the air that we breathe…and yet we see people with oxygen tanks all the time and chalk it up to simply poor lungs. In areas where there is high pollution (oxygen levels there are in the teens), oxygen bars are popping up and people are going. Ozone air cleaners are being sold to clean the air as well as the lungs. Hyperbaric chambers are starting to get attention and the list goes on.

About 1/3 of the oxygen our body uses comes from the air we breathe. Oxygen not only supplies the lungs with oxygen but it has to travel on the blood circulation highway from our veins to our capillaries and supply each and every one of our cells with oxygen. That’s a lot of work for just the lungs to do. So we use the foods that we eat as well as the water we drink to also help. Food does this with the help of sulfur. This sulfur is naturally in fresh fruits, vegetables, eggs and meat. But the longer the time it takes from picking off of a tree, the ground, nest etc. to our plate, the smaller the chance of sulfur still remaining in the foods we eat. So our foods currently have little to no sulfur in them. If you have ever cut a fresh cucumber or maybe a butternut squash and noticed a clear liquid being released from it. That my friend is sulfur. This is one of the many reasons why people like to shop local for meat and produce.

When we talk about receiving oxygen through water we know that there is a difference in taste between spring/aquifer water and the water you get from the tap or even a bottle. When it comes right out of the spring…it tastes like you would imagine clean air should taste because it has free molecules of oxygen ready to be absorbed. Yes, yes, I know water has oxygen in it because it is H2O, but that oxygen is bonded to create water. The fact that you can taste the difference between fresh spring water and others lets you know that your body recognizes the difference. If you are a person who cannot taste the difference in waters. Try a cleaner water for a few weeks and then go back to what you normally drink. It will be a difference of night and day. It is amazing what environment the body can be accustomed to.

Here’s a  cool thing that I learned about vitamin C and why it works so well for so many problems dealing with the immune system in our body. The body actually converts/metabolizes vitamin C  by the use of the enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD) which changes it into hydrogen peroxide which is your body’s natural way of killing viruses, bacteria, damaged cells.  Your healthy cells have an enzyme catalase that pulls apart the peroxide bonds and converts them into water and extra oxygen. These damaged cells have lower levels of enzymes than healthy cells and are gradually dissolved and leaving healthy tissue (Danworth, 2012). The University of Massachusetts also echoed the same results (Havasu, 2012). You can test this by spraying peroxide on your hand or leg that doesn’t have any scratches or chapped and then spray it on a part that does. You’ll notice nothing happens on the healthy skin, but the skin that has and small cracks or openings begin to foam white. I also tried it on my underarms for bacterial purposes in comparison cuts.  I washed 1 underarm and not the other to see if foam would appear and it did.

There is also different types of oxygen. O1 which is the oxygen we (our bodies want) and is easily absorbed. O2 which is what the sun produces when it touches plankton to touches the earth and stimulated the plants to produce O2 as part of photosynthesis. Then there is O3 in which the sun turns oxygen (O2) into ozone (O3) when is used up into the atmosphere by winds. Then the UV light hits the O2 it splits them apart becoming O3. O3 is so energetic/unbalanced that it wants to go back to O2 so it gives up an O and this is whats used in healing. With the residual of water and oxygen (McCabe, 2008).

I am sure you are wondering how you can add more oxygen into your system to try it out. There are multiple ways, but the sources of Oxygen that I have come across are:

  • Organic Sulfur (FYI kelp is full of marine sulfur)
  • Hydrogen peroxide food grade diluted to 3%
  • Ozone
  • Chaga mushrooms
  • Minerals such as fulvic and humic minerals
  • Rebounding
On an interview with Ed McCabe made a statement that was so simple and clear I wanted to share it with you. You can love a few weeks without food, a few days without water, but how long can you live without oxygen. This should tell you its importance to the body.
