Why alkaline retardation, cell division and Oxygen are all tied to all chronic disease!
Oxygen is critical for cells to work.
A commonality of chronic disease is low oxygen INSIDE CELLS. (*This is called “intracellular-oxygen”)
Meaning… the oxygen is having trouble transferring from the blood, through the cell wall.
This is largely due to defective cell membranes (- the cell wall is made up of)
Defective cell membranes are the result of damaged phospholipids – which these membranes are made up of.
Let me explain….
The membrane of our cells is called the phospholipid-bilayer.
These cell membranes become defective, because modern diets are largely void of healthy phospholipids and essential fatty acids that make up this membrane.
This is what happens when you process, preserve, heat-treat and manipulate foods, oils and fats.
…You severely damage the lipids your cells require to work and properly transfer oxygen.
An example: partially-hydrogenated oils, found in over 83% of processed foods, are plastic-fats.
They can’t transfer oxygen. And they can’t conduct electricity needed to function. So any cell membrane relying on lipids from common dietary sources become defective.
Oxidation via food processing is instantaneous and deemed necessary for shelf-preservation. Which is the removal of oxygen. The problem is our bodies use these oxygen-void foods to also build new cells… and then our cells can’t carry oxygen either!
*So for simplicity; cell walls that can’t properly transfer oxygen inside of them = LOW CELLULAR OXYGEN.
…And when oxygen can’t get from outside the cells, to inside the cells, bodily breakdown and disease happen;
Pathogens takeover, and oxidative stress and inflammation result in thickening of blood and damage to cells & cardiovascular system – affecting your heart, brain, liver – and other vital organs. Circulation problems arise, your immune system becomes overwhelmed, and your health breaks down faster than your body can repairitself…
Disease; like Cancer happens due to LACK OF CELLULAR OXYGEN!
This was a discovery made by Dr. Otto Warburg, Nobel Prize Winner in Medicine, 1931 — who wrote about it in his research titled ”The Metabolism of Tumors” in Germany…
He discovered that weakened cell respiration causes cancer due to lack of oxygen at the cellular level.
Voltage (in the form of electrons) is what gives your cells their “charge”.
(*In other words… it’s your cells “battery-pack”…)
And if you live with negative symptoms of any kind, you have low-voltage.
Voltage, like oxygen – is a problem of the bodily state of alkaline-retardation.
Because like oxygen, the amount of voltage that can be stored in your cells is also dictated by the integrity of phospholipids your cell membranes are made up of.
The same damaged phospholipids that prevent oxygen transfer, also prevent the storage of voltage.
Because your cells store the voltage in these membranes.
…And you can’t store voltage in damaged cell membranes.
(Which is another reason the Oxygen/Voltage problem goes hand it hand…)
Which brings me to the last part of Dr OTTO’s findings…
*In 1931, Dr. Otto Warburg won the Nobel Prize for showing that cancer thrives in anaerobic (without oxygen), or acidic conditions…
ENTER: THE TRUTH ABOUT “ALKALINITY”
It’s widely known today that the presence of high acidity is a sign there is likely disease in the body.
The part you likely haven’t been told: (High Acidity = Low Voltage)
…Which means, high-voltage = alkaline.
In other words… “an alkaline body”, which is represented by your PH (*or potential hydrogen) level – is an alternative representation of sufficient cellular voltage!
A naturally-high PH in your body is due to an oxygen rich environment with sufficient voltage.
On the flip-side… attempting to “raise your PH” is practically useless if you can’t store voltage.
(*This is why many folks try to binge on “alkaline foods” and can’t seem to remedy a damn thing!)
Here’s how voltage in your body works…
*A “normal PH”, which is 7.35 — is what you naturally get when you have a “normal” cellular voltage of -20 millivolts.
*A “normal PH”, which is 7.35 — is what you naturally get when you have a “normal” cellular voltage of -20 millivolts.
*On the opposite end of the spectrum… cancer occurs at +30 millivolts.
-50mv – during healing
-20mv – normal operating
-15mv – tired
-10mv – sick
-5mv – organ damage
-(below 0) …reversal of polarity and damaged DNA in the cell. Cancer happens
Now, you may have heard from you Doctor or common rumors that illnesses – like Cancers – are “genetic” conditions….
This was actually disproved by Thomas Seyfried, who in his book “Cancer is a Metabolic Disease” — demonstrated that genetic changes are SECONDARY to LOW VOLTAGE in cells!
(You can actually measure voltage in your body using things like an “OHM meter” directed at problem areas or your organs & chakras…)
…So what you REALLY WANT to improve your health isn’t “PH” per se…. it’s voltage!
And your body stores and uses voltage in the form of electrons.
Electrons possess an amazing healing capacity – including supplying cellular voltage, anti-oxidation and anti-inflammatory effects.
When you can’t properly store voltage (electrons) in your cells, your body is in —
A State of Alkaline-Retardation!
Alkaline-retardation — is the common-bodily state, when cell membranes are void in the necessary phospholipids & materials required to store electrons, transfer oxygen, and properly duplicate.
*I’ll repeat that —
“ Alkaline-retardation — is the common-bodily state, when cell membranes are void in the necessary phospholipids & materials required to store electrons, transfer oxygen, and properly duplicate.”
This results in the body using more electrons than readily available…. causing a drainage of necessary voltage.
(*especially when bodily stressors are introduced… more on that in a moment)
This is the truth about alkalinity.
— *If you can’t store electrons, you are suffering from alkaline-retardation
— *If you can’t store electrons, your body will always be ACIDIC.
*If you fix your ability to store voltage (electrons), and you restore necessary electrons, then your body will be ALKALINE.
ALKALINE = Electrons present.
ACIDIC = Electrons void.
Cellular voltage is what truly achieves “alkalinity” in your body. (Not simply “raising your PH”)
AGAIN: This is why guzzling “lemon juice” or baking soda, isn’t going to cure all problems… because your cell membranes are still not addressed!
This is why countless folks with health ailments can’t breakthrough by simple “consuming alkaline foods”…
Because they can’t properly store voltage in their cells!
To store proper voltage in your cells – you need to repair and build healthy new cell membranes.
Then you need to put tons of electrons in your body, to restore & maintain sufficient voltage!
*This is how REAL “alkalinity” is achieved in your body!
…This is why you can’t get needed phospholipids from lemon juice or baking soda!
Nor can you from your favorite “green-juice”… or even decent electron-donors like vitamin C.
Because they don’t address the cause behind alkaline-retardation:
— they don’t supply necessary undamaged phospholipids and essential fatty acids!
— they don’t fix your cells’ ability to store voltage!
— they don’t provide all necessary materials to build new cells that work!
Sufficient voltage (in the form of electrons) is essential for your health…
Your Body uses Voltage to:
– control hormones
– heal infections
– deflect pathogens
– neutralize toxins
– regulate emotions
And remember: as voltage drops, oxygen drops
Low-Oxygen & Voltage — Due to Alkaline-Retardation, Causes This to Happen In Your Body…
Your body is home to over 1 trillion “sleeping” microbes.
When your oxygen is low it results in the awakening of dormant microbes…. which begin to proliferate and thrive.
When oxygen drops, these bugs wake up…
They then put out digestive enzymes that digest your cells and suck the nutrients out of them!
When your voltage is low:
—> your body makes more toxins
——> which lowers voltage more…
———> resulting in more pathologic infections
————> this cycle continues.
As this continues… these “pathogenic enzymes” spread throughout your blood and body, and cause what you know as chronic and auto-immune diseases.
A neglected state of alkaline-retardation always leads to;
— thickening of the blood
— full body overtaken with pathogens, infiltrating every crevasse of your gut, blood, and organs
— inflammation via immune response, feeding more and more pathogenic activity.
— (*choose your symptoms and disorder…)
Because overall, a state of alkaline-retardation leads to —
The Inability to Create New Cells That Work.
We are supposed to create new cells that work, when our cells divide.
Cell-division, the process where we actually “create new cells”, is both where LIFE and DEATH happen…
Well, cells with membranes that can’t store voltage are going to replicate into new cells that also – can’t store voltage!
Because during cell-division, the current cell must contain enough electron-capable phospholipids and fatty acids – in it’s surface, to divide off and create the new cell.
When this process is handicapped, your body begins to slowly die.
…And when cell-membranes become too-inactive before division of cells take place — it results in the formation of tumors.
This is why destroying cell membranes and lowering voltage in our bodies results in chronic and terminal diseases.
In addition to integral cell membranes, and sufficient electrons…. our body also requires an abundance of essential nutrients and raw materials at once — to successfully create new cells that work!
*This is a MAJOR KEY:
“Your body most successful creates new cells when it receives all necessary materials AT ONCE!”
(*Remember that last note… it’s vital)
But everything is only possible – with the cellular inability to transfer oxygen and store voltage.
The modern day epidemic affecting our health (in addition to the absence of quality dietary phospholipids), is TOXINS.
Now we all know this… but here’s the connection:
*Toxins are electron-stealers! (*meaning toxins STEAL our cellular-voltage!)
And today, MORE TOXIC ASSAULTS burden our bodies than ever before…
…From the contaminants in our tap water, to processed foods, pesticides & herbicides, air pollution, ocean contamination, hormone-disruptors like BPA in plastics, off-gassing furniture in our homes and mattresses we sleep on, to the constant radiation and electromagnetic fields were all getting bombarded by via modern day technology, power plants, antennas and cell-towers….
And here’s the result: (*in order of occurance)
1 —> We take in toxins.
2 ——> The toxins create harmful free-radicals in your body.
3 ———> Oxidative-stress results, when your body can’t neutralize free-radicals fast enough.
4 ————> Excessive inflammation destroys your body from the inside out…
(…Ever wonder why all epidemic conditions are referred to as “inflammatory diseases?”)
Every cell in your body gets approximately 10,000 free-radical attacks each and every DAY…
Now multiply those 10,000 attacks — by the many TRILLIONS of cells in your body!
10,000 attacks, times 100 trillion cells in your body, to exact.
That’s a LOT of free radicals that produce damage and modify cell functions, mitochondria, and DNA – disrupting the harmonic life-processes taking place in your body that keep you healthy and alive!
This is why diseases begin to develop as more and more oxidative stress accumulates in your body.
…When a critical amount of inflammation and damage occurs to any bodily region of genetic vulnerability, then it eventually earns itself an assigned label of disease (— such as diabetes, kidney disease, cancer, etc.)
This is why the “free radical theory” states: Accumulated free radical damage – (as a result of oxidative stress), causes cellular processes to fall apart and our insides begin aging & decaying RAPIDLY.
This means, a prolonged oxidative stress burden eventually leads to death.
Why is this particularly relevant?
Because low voltage + low oxygen causes your body to get caught in a “washer machine action” type of oxidative-stress trap.
(…So you can’t EVER feel great and be incredibly healthy with insufficient voltage & oxygen!)
“Low O+V = The ultimate OS Accelerator”
Because Low Voltage + Low Oxygen = “Oxidative-Stress ACCELERATOR!”
Here’s how it works…
As I stated a moment ago… “toxins are electron-stealers”.
1 — Toxins in the body drain voltage
*Lowered voltage results in lower intracellular oxygen (inside cells)
2 — Due to alkaline-retardation, the body can’t store proper voltageand enters a state of oxidative-stress
*Oxidative Stress further depletes electrons (voltage), and therefor oxygen
3 — As oxidative stress continues, inflammation rises
*Inflammation consumes oxygen as fuel — decreasing oxygen even further
— IMPERFECT CELL MEMBRANES = Low Voltage & Low Oxygen.
— LOW V+O = inability to properly neutralize toxins.
— TOXINS = damaging oxidative stress & inflammation.
– *which lower oxygen & cellular voltage (further)
*Each time the cycle repeats, things get WORSE and health generally declines…
Over time, this compounds – creating a “butterfly effect” and your body begins to breakdown rapidly, towards death via disease.
But the main caveat here is:
“Oxidative-Stress” SPEEDS-UP the deprivation of cellular Voltage & Oxygen!”
You see — as free radical damage occurs and cells and tissues are damaged, our bodies attempt to clear away the damage… this results in necessary inflammation to break down the damaged tissue needing to be “cleared.”
The problem — is the inflammation also unintentionally damages surrounding healthy tissue — leading to more damage!
Meaning, inflammation that is attempting to aid your body — leads to new secondary inflammation and oxidative stress….. destroying your body in the process!
Which results in more and MORE voltage and oxygen needed for repair! (*further draining your cells of voltage & oxygen!)
In addition to this…
A continued-cycle of inflammation damages our cell membranes even further!
An ongoing cycle of oxidative stress leads to further oxidation of lipids that make up each cell membrane!
An even DEEPER state of alkaline-retardation! (*and even-LOWER ability to store necessary voltage!!)
(…And now you then have an even greater disability to produce new cells that work!)
Oxidized Lipids = DEAD CELL WALLS —> Oxidative Stress —>
Starved Cells —> Inability to produce new cells that work
As This Cycle Continues it —
Shortens Your Lifespan Potential By The DAY!
Oxidative-stress is commonly referred to as the “aging-accelerator”.
This is because your longevity is dictated by the length of your telomeres —
Telomeres are part of human cells that affect how fast we age and how long we live. They are caps at the end of each strand of DNA that protect our chromosomes.
And Oxidative stress shrinks your telomeres!
To Live Your Best Healthy Lifestyle Possible and remain Cancer free,
You will Need to:Be able to Make New Cells that Work Properly!
This requires escaping a condemning state of alkaline-retardation.
To supercharge your body back to it’s highest potential —
You’ll need these 5 things:
1. — Healthy Cell Membranes! (transfer and store oxygen in your cells)
2. — Raise your Oxygen levels! (by increasing your Voltage)
3. — Increase your voltage! (by putting electrons in your body)
4, — All materials & nutrients to create New Cells that work properly!
5. — Powerful Antioxidants to escape deadly oxidative stress cycle!
(*And if you’re a severely compromised individual, you’ll likely also need to: )
— Restore your mineral count
— Right nutrients to produce more neuro-chemicals
— Even more electrons (voltage) to aid in hormone regulation
— Micro-sized solutions that can be absorbed (*even with leaky gut and/or stressed-liver)
And there is the simplest “all-in-one” solution….
.. The Natural Health Community Relies on solutions Like These:
- Raising your “PH” with Alkaline Foods…
- Oxygenating your body with things like diet, “ozone” or food grade hydrogen peroxide…
- Essential Fatty Acids (like omega 3 & 6) to support healthy cells…
- Antioxidants – to counter oxidative stress and neutralize “free-radicals”…
Now, these are all GREAT things to do…
there are all great places to start! You must educate yourself to what works best for you. Always consult with a doctor that you trust before starting a regiment you believe can help you!
5 foods shown to support health and Improve mental Clarity
How do you feel throughout your busy days? Energetic and ready to take on the next challenge? Or, dreading another day where you feel slow, cloudy, and unmotivated… Like you’re trudging through mud with the windows fogged up?
“Brain fog,” that uncomfortable lack of mental clarity, can lead to forgetfulness along with difficulty focusing, thinking, and even communicating and leave you fatigued, irritable, and even anxious. Yuck!
Before you decide to just head back to bed, there are some simple lifestyle solutions to combat brain fog. To help you feel human again, here are 5 foods shown to support health and mental acuity:
1. Salmon: Salmon is high in essential fatty acids (especially the brain-healthy omega-3 called docosahexaenoic acid, or DHA), protein, and vitamins and minerals (such as vitamin B12 and potassium). Studies have shown that increasing consumption of DHA can improve memory, reaction time, and cognitive function. Look for wild varieties and try to include salmon or another fatty fish into your nutrition plan at least twice a week.
2. Nuts & Seeds: Convenient, delicious, and nutritious, nuts and seeds provide healthy fats (including omega-3s), fiber (which supports healthy blood sugar), numerous vitamins and minerals (such as vitamin E, manganese, and copper), amino acids, and polyphenols (which slow down the aging process in the brain by combating free radicals)—all shown to help support cognitive function. Enjoy an ounce of your favorite nuts or seeds, like walnuts, macadamia nuts, pistachios, or pumpkin seeds every day for the potential brain benefits.
3. Blueberries: Low in calories and super high in nutrients, blueberries are convenient and provide fiber, vitamins (especially C and K), and manganese. Blueberries have one of the highest antioxidant capacities among all fruits, vegetables, and seasonings. And, in one six-year study, 16,010 participants who regularly consumed berries (specifically blueberries and strawberries), enjoyed cognitive aging delays by as much as 2.5 years. Fresh or frozen, a handful of blueberries daily is delicious and may help your brain function at its best.
4. Green Leafy Veggies: Rich in antioxidants and carotenoids (which give vegetables their wide array of colors), leafy greens such as spinach, Swiss chard, kale, and even mustard greens are known for providing high amounts of folate and Vitamin K, nutrients that may help improve focus, memory, and overall brain power. One study demonstrated that folks who enjoyed one or two servings of leafy greens per day enjoyed the thinking ability of folks who were up to 11 years younger. Go ahead and indulge with that “big salad” every day.
5. Avocados: Commonly regarded as a fantastic source of healthy fats (e.g., oleic acid), avocados are also very high in other nutrients—they provide 7 grams of fiber, have more potassium than bananas, and also provide plenty of vitamins (such as K, C, E, and folate) and antioxidants. Avocados also provide monounsaturated fats, which support healthy blood flow to the brain. One study showed that these healthy fats help protect nerve cells which carry information throughout the nervous system. Feel free to dip into some guacamole or add a quarter of an avocado to your salad daily.
Eating the above brain foods alone won’t completely eliminate brain fog. It’s also important to ensure you’re getting enough quality sleep, staying hydrated, exercising regularly, and reducing simple carbs and sugars, which contribute to brain fog.
In fact, did you know that certain “healthy” foods and spices can actually DAMAGE your DNA and accelerate aging in your body? Age spots, wrinkles, saggy skin, joint stiffness, decreased mobility, memory issues, low energy, increased fatigue, hormonal decline, weight gain… the list goes on and on.
Don’t fall victim to these nightmare age-accelerating foods any longer!
PURPOSES OF OZONE THERAPY
Ozone therapy works by at least three basic mechanisms.
First, it kills pathogens.
Second, if used extensively enough, if may have some effects in terms of degrading toxins.
Third, it has a hormesis-type effect with regard to oxidative stress, in that it encourages the body to ramp up its production of protective enzymes.
I have found ozone very helpful. For full disclosure, I was already very far along in my daily alternative remedies regiment and recovery, by the time that I had started ozone. I do believe that in far as curing cancer, ozone can play a big roll in ones regiment plan.
As background, here is what Dr. Sarah Carnes of the Sophia Institute (run by Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt) says about ozone therapy in this kind of disease:
What ozone does in the body is not a one word answer. It has different actions depending on its concentration and how it’s administered. As a detox agent, it stimulates the body’s antioxidant systems by offering a mild pro oxidant challenge. The challenge is not enough to cause oxidant damage, but enough that the body increases its production of the enzymes: glutathione per-oxidase, reductase, super oxide diastase, and catalyses, setting off a response where free radicals are swept away all over the body, even though the ozone may have introduced into only one area. Bacteria, viruses, and some types of unhealthy cells don’t have that same enzymatic protection from oxidation, so they are made non-viable, while human cells survive.
Here is the description of the mechanism of action from the peer-reviewed published paper “Ozone Therapy” A Clinical Review” by A.M. Elvis and J.S. Ekta:
Inactivation of bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeast and protozoa: Ozone therapy disrupts the integrity of the bacterial cell envelope through oxidation of the phospholipids and lipoproteins. In fungi, O3 inhibits cell growth at certain stages. With viruses, the O3 damages the viral capsid and upsets the reproductive cycle by disrupting the virus-to-cell contact with peroxidation. The weak enzyme coatings on cells which make them vulnerable to invasion by viruses make them susceptible to oxidation and elimination from the body, which then replaces them with healthy cells.
Stimulation of oxygen metabolism: Ozone therapy causes an increase in the red blood cell glycolysis rate. This leads to the stimulation of 2,3-diphosphoglycerate which leads to an increase in the amount of oxygen released to the tissues. Ozone activates the Krebs cycle by enhancing oxidative carboxylation of pyruvate, stimulating production of ATP. It also causes a significant reduction in NADH and helps to oxidize cytochrome C. There is a stimulation of production of enzymes which act as free radical scavengers and cell-wall protectors: glutathione peroxidase, catalase and superoxide dismutase. Production of prostacyline, a vasodilator, is also induced by O3
Activation of the immune system: Ozone administered at a concentration of between 30 and 55 μg/cc causes the greatest increase in the production of interferon and the greatest output of tumor necrosis factor and interleukin-2. The production of interleukin-2 launches an entire cascade of subsequent immunological reactions.
Mechanism of action of O3 on the human lung: Ozone exposure induces a significant mean decrements in vital capacity. It significantly increases mean airway resistance and specific airway resistance but does not change dynamic or static pulmonary compliance or viscous or elastic work. It also significantly reduces maximal trans-pulmonary pressure. And further more significantly increases respiratory rate and decreased tidal volume.
Ozone has many wonderful effects on a sick, aging body. You should not overlook ozone therapy as a truly miracle natural remedies!

Common Questions About the Ketogenic Diet
1. What Is the Ketogenic Diet?
The Ketogenic diet is a very low-carb diet plan that was originally designed in the 1920s for patients with epilepsy by researchers working at Johns Hopkins Medical Center. Researchers found that fasting — avoiding consumption of all foods for a brief period of time, including those that provide carbohydrates — helped reduce the amount of seizures patients suffered, in addition to having other positive effects on body fat, blood sugar, cholesterol and hunger levels. (4)
Unfortunately, long-term fasting is not a feasible option for more than a few days, therefore the ketogenic diet was developed to mimic the same beneficial effects of fasting. Essentially the keto diet works by “tricking” the body into thinking it is fasting, through a strict elimination of glucose that is found in carbohydrate foods. Today the ketogenic diet goes by several different names, including the “no-carb diet” or “very low carbohydrate ketogenic diet”(LCKD or VLCKD for short).
What does “keto” stand for exactly? Keto is short for ketosis. Following a ketogenic diet puts your body into a state of “ketosis,” which is a metabolic state that occurs when most of the body’s energy comes from ketone bodies in the blood, rather than from glucose. This is in contrast to a glycolytic state, where blood glucose (sugar) provides most of the body’s fuel (or energy).
Once ketone levels in the blood rise to a certain point, you officially enter into a state of ketosis. This state results in fairly rapid and consistent weight loss until you reach a healthier (and stable) body weight. Overall, people enter into ketosis at different rates, usually after 3–4 days of fasting or following a very low-carbohydrate diet (20 grams of net carbs or less) that forces the need for an alternative energy source.
When you’re following a ketogenic diet, your body is burning fat for energy rather than carbohydrates, so in the process most people lose excess body fat rapidly, even when consuming lots of fat and adequate calories through their diet.
2. What Are the Stages of Ketosis?
Ketosis occurs when the liver breaks down fat into fatty acids and glycerol — a process called beta-oxidation. In particular, three primary types of ketone bodies that are water-soluble molecules are produced: acetoacetate, beta-hydroxybutyrate and acetone.
Rather than drawing energy from glucose, a person in ketosis stays fueled off of these circulating ketones or ketone bodies — essentially, burning fat for fuel. This is the principal goal of the ketogenic diet, which can be achieved by adhering to a very low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet with only moderate amounts of protein.
3. What Is a Ketogenic Diet Plan Like?
Wondering how many carb foods you can eat and still be “in ketosis”? The traditional ketogenic diet created for those with epilepsy consisted of getting about 75 percent of calories from sources of fat (such as oils or fattier cuts of meat), 5 percent from carbohydrates and 20 percent from protein. For most people a less strict ketogenic diet (what I call a “modified keto diet”) can still help promote weight loss in a safe, and often very fast, way.
Reducing calories coming from carbohydrates to just 5 percent may not be appropriate or many people, but this shouldn’t mean that the keto diet is completely ruled out (more on following a modified keto diet can be found below).
Keep in mind that if a strict ketogenic diet is being followed, experts recommend that children following the diet be closely monitored, in addition to those who have who are taking medications or existing conditions like high blood pressure or diabetes.
For adults who are relatively healthy, it’s usually safe to follow a very low carb diet while not being monitored as closely, as long as they’re watching out for any unusual warning signs of a negative reaction (such as lots of fatigue or brain fog that lasts for more than about a week).
In some ways, it’s similar to the Atkins Diet, which similarly boosts the body’s fat-burning abilities through eating only low-carb foods, along with getting rid of foods high in carbs and sugar. Removing glucose from carbohydrate foods will cause the body to burn fat for energy instead. The major differences between the classic keto diet and the Atkins diet is ketogenic emphasizes healthier fats, less overall protein and no processed meat (such as bacon) while having more research to back up its efficacy.
4. How Does the Ketogenic Diet Work?
Ketogenic diets, like most low carb diets, work through the elimination of glucose. Because most folks live on a high carb diet, our bodies normally run on glucose (or sugar) for energy. We cannot make glucose and only have about 24 hours’ worth stored in our muscle tissue and liver. Once glucose is no longer available from food sources, we begin to burn stored fat instead, or fat from our diets. The ketogenic diet, therefore, eliminates glucose and causes the body to burn its own fat quickly.
This process of burning fat provides more benefits than simply helping us to shed extra weight — it also helps control the release of hormones like insulin, which plays a role in development of diabetes and other health problems. When we eat carbohydrates, insulin is released as a reaction to elevated blood glucose (an increase in sugar circulating in our blood). Insulin is a “storage hormone” that signals cells to store as much available energy as possible, initially as glycogen (aka stored carbohydrates in our muscles) and then as body fat.
The ketogenic diet works by eliminating carbohydrates from the diet and keeping the body’s carbohydrate stores almost empty, therefore preventing too much insulin from being released following food consumption. This can help reverse “insulin resistance” which is the underlying problem contributing to diabetes. Optimal ketosis is reached when they body stays in ketosis for at least a few weeks, when both any side effects diminish greatly while the benbsefits are more pronounced with the body becoming a fat burner.
How To Build Your Own Exercise with Oxygen Therapy System.
That is a picture of me exercising on my home made EWOT system. I made this Exercise With Oxygen Therapy System following these directions that I have listed below, This is a daily routine that I do to Beat Cancer and just feel better with much more energetic. I use a stair climber for quick and maximum exertion. You can use a stationary bike or a elliptical machine.
“You can buy a refurbished oxygen concentrator online for as little as 300 dollars, but I suggest looking up an oxygen concentrator repair shop in your area and inquire about buying a new or refurbished oxygen concentrator. You’ll notice that many places require a doctor’s prescription for new oxygen concentrators, but not refurbished ones. This is because refurbished machines are considered as replacement parts and do not require a prescription. In any case, get one that puts out at least 5 liters per minute.”
So, let’s say you’ve got your oxygen concentrator. Often the oxygen port will be on the top of the machine. A hypoxic port is inside in the machine. Here’s what the average oxygen concentrator looks like:
Figure 1. A typical oxygen concentrator. There is a dial for adjusting the flow of oxygen and the port is located on the upper right of the machine.
Most oxygen concentrator deliver about 5 liters per minute, and some as high as 10 liters per minute. To obtain high oxygen levels, a sealed mask system connected to a reservoir is essential. Regular mask systems allow too much of something called “air entrainment.” The volume of the reservoir is important and needs to be at least 100 liters.
Simple math tells you that you will run out of oxygen pretty quickly without a large reservoir. Breathing normally, you inspire about a half a liter per breath, and this increases significantly during exercise. This is the reason for those super big bags from companies like the LiveO2 system. I have found that at least 100 to 200-liter reservoir is needed for most 30-60 minute exercise with oxygen therapy (EWOT) sessions.
OK, now, here are the instructions for biohacking your oxygen concentrator:
Step 1: Obtain an oxygen concentrator. Scroll up and read again, search the internet, If possible, consider buying a 10-liter machine, but a 5-liter machine does the job just fine.
Step 2: Make the reservoir.

Below are photos of the PVC coupler, the bushing and the CPAP adapter. Just comment below this article if you’re confused about any of the materials you’ll need, and I’d be happy to reply.
Figure 2. On the left, the ½ inch PVC coupler, on the right, a ¾ inch PVC reducer bushing.
Figure 3. CPAP adaptor. This piece attaches to the ½ inch coupler on one side and CPAP tubing on the other. It also has a port to attach the oxygen tubing.
The plastic required for the reservoir bag needs to be at least 4 millimeters thick or more. Most fabric stores sell a thick plastic that come in a roll.
Lay the plastic on a flat surface, and then, using a heat gun or iron, heat the ends of the plastic together on each side, leaving the bottom unsealed. An iron is recommended, set on a low heat setting. Heat around the edges, sealing three sides of the bag only.
Figure 4. Use an iron on low heat to melt the two edges of the thick plastic together. This step may need to be repeated several times.
SCROLL DOWN PAGE TO SEE STEP BY STEP VIDEOS
At the bottom of the bag near the unsealed opening, cut an “X” about ½ inch in diameter. Place the ¾ inch reducer bushing inside the bag just under the opening that was cut into the plastic. Then place the ½ inch coupler on top of the “X” on the outside of the bag. Now push the two pieces together, forcing the plastic into larger ¾ inch coupler. This is what creates the seal. It should look like this:
Figure 5. Place the ¾ inch reducer bushing under the plastic, and cut an “X” in order to insert the ½ inch coupler into the reducer bushing, creating a seal.
Figure 6. Firmly insert the ½ inch coupler into the reducer bushing. This seals the fitting into the plastic.
Figure 7. The coupler and reducer bushing successfully inserted into the plastic.
Now attach the CPAP adapter to the ½ inch PVC reducer bushing and put the ½ inch PVC cap onto the end of the CPAP adapter port. Now the bottom of the reservoir bag can be finished by sealing the open end with the heat gun or iron.

Figure 8. Inflating the reservoir with oxygen. Notice the oxygen tubing at the top. The CPAP tubing is attached to the ½ inch coupler.
Figure 9. The reservoir fully inflated and holding about 200 liters of oxygen. Be careful to not overfill as the bag will come apart with too much pressure.
Step 3: Attach the oxygen tubing and fill the reservoir. Use oxygen tubing that will connect to the machine to the oxygen outlet on the CPAP adaptor. This is usually a thin, plastic tubing that should come with the oxygen concentrator. Also, cover the open end of the CPAP adaptor with the ½ inch PVC cap.
Step 4: After the reservoir is filled, connect the CPAP tubing to the CPAP adapter. You can buy CPAP tubing from most medical stores. Again, depending on your situation and how far your treadmill, exercise bike, etc. is from the actual oxygen concentrator, you will need at least 10 feet or more of CPAP tubing. At this point you may want to attach the reservoir to the wall (use double sided tape) or just leave it on the ground or perhaps under your bed. Be creative!
Step 5: Connect the CPAP tube to the mask. The mask is a dual one-way valve that is quite easy to get from a medical store. Be sure to connect the CPAP tubing to the intake port of the mask, you will exhale out of the out-take port.
Figure 10. Dual valve oxygen mask.
Again, once everything is connected, simply turn the machine on and let it run. Be sure the reservoir is capped off. The oxygen concentrator has to fill the reservoir bag, so if you are filling at, say five liters per minute, this will take about sixty minutes for a 200-liter bag.
OK, so now you’re probably wondering how to use this contraption. Here goes…
The mask should fit comfortably on your face. Adjust the straps until you have a good fit. If there is any pain or there are any leaks, then the mask is not fitted correctly. A good seal is very important and you should be able to breathe comfortably. If you have a 200-liter reservoir, breathing normally at sixteen times a minute will give you about thirty minutes of oxygen.
Using the mask oxygen system during exercise will deplete the reservoir much sooner, but it is still enough to do a good session.
One interval session that I use often on my bicycle trainer goes as follows:
-Be sure to fill the oxygen reservoir adequately before you start
-Warm up without oxygen until you reach your tar¬get pulse rate (usually 10-15 minutes)
-Put on the oxygen mask
-Sprint at 90 to 100% of your max¬i¬mum power or heart rate for 30 seconds
-Rest about 1 to 1.5 minutes
-Repeat at least 8 to 10 times
-During the session, use a fingertip pulse oximeter to monitor your pulse rate and O2 saturation. You should see consistently high levels of oxygen saturation (96+). Ideally, you should feel that your recovery between intervals is quicker than you would experience without the oxygen, and your perceived exertion at any given intensity will be a less than normal. Note, that it generally does not improve your peak performance or power output.
I also like to use an oxygen concentrator for enhancing recovery by literally just sitting on the couch and wearing the mask after a really hard workout or a race. In fact, a recent article published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research showed that supplemental oxygen quickened recovery and improved muscle contractility after exercise. It has also been shown to speed up muscle tissue metabolism and increases tissue blood circulation.
So that’s it! Voila, you now have a system that will deliver oxygen at a high rate to your body during exercise.
Do you plan on using any of these oxygen biohacks? Was any of this confusing for you or do you need clarification on the design of the oxygen concentrator or the exercise protocol? Leave your comments, thoughts and feedback below, and I promise to reply.

Oxygen Therapy played a huge roll in helping me Beat Cancer!
Starved of oxygen the body will become ill, and if this persists we will die. The clinical application of O2 to wounds, tumors, leukemia, and to all chronic and acute situations gets to the heart of what is right or wrong inside of us. Wound healing medicine offers doctors and patients alike a view of a level of physiology that is precious to know and understand for it gets to the level of the capillaries and the tissues they feed, which are especially vulnerable to hypoxia (low O2), inflammation, tissue necrosis (tissue death) and cancers.
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. The lack of oxygen causes impaired health or disease and death. The body’s requirement for oxygen makes oxygen the most important supplement needed by the body.
We simply cannot live without oxygen and yet achieve or maintain optimum health. Some doctors like Dr. Arthur C. Guyton go as far as saying, “All chronic pain, suffering and diseases are caused from a lack of oxygen at the cell level.” What he did not say is low oxygen conditions lead directly to inflammation. Chronic inflammation mirrors our body’s low oxygen state.
Special Note: Please Read “Flood Your Body With Oxygen” by Ed McCabe; This book is about the importance of oxygen therapy and ozone therapy.
I read this book in the beginning of my journey to recovery. I can attribute a large part of my recovery to many of the natural remedies listed in this book. These Natural Therapies are inexpensive and do work! I built my own Oxygen Therapy Machine and performed many of the routines listed in this book.. I assembled my own EWOT system relatively cheap. I purchased a Oxygen concentrator and constructed a large vinyl bag (from products bought at my local Home Depot) to hold the oxygen. I then purchased a face mask, larger air hose and used this set up daily for 10 minutes a day! In less than two month’s, I had reduced my PSA number from 1.39 to .43. A astounding reduction of more than 200% of my Total PSA #. If you need information on how to build your own EWOT system? Please leave me a message!
17 Cancer Facts You Need to Know Right Now
Scientific experts worldwide agree that at least half of all cancers and cancer-related deaths are preventable. In 2012, two million deaths globally were attributed to cancer according to the World Health Organization (WHO). Preventing half of those deaths is an excellent place to start.
Cancer is the single name assigned to more than 100 diseases. Though cancer was once referred to as a “wasting disease,” it’s actually the result of abnormal cells that multiply and spread out of control, damaging healthy cells along the way. Most cancers result in tumors but those that affect the blood do not. Cancer can occur in any part of your body.
Only a very small percentage of cancers (between 5-10%) have a genetic link. When the “experts” tell you most cancers are genetic, they’re not being truthful. However, despite the statement that research confirms most patients didn’t inherit some mysterious “cancer curse” from their parents, immediate families tend to have the same habits, eat the same foods, and are exposed to the same toxins. That’s a cancer fact that makes sense. Cleaning up your diet, exercising, and detoxification are extremely important for every member of your family
Environmental factors can increase your risk of cancer. The air you breathe, the water you drink, and the food you eat are all important. Pollution, heavy metal toxicity, and even personal care and household cleaning products can damage the cells in your body. Your home and workplace are the two places you spend the majority of your time. Evaluating (and then reducing) the possible toxins you’re exposed to on a daily basis is a strong step to cancer prevention.
More than 90% of all lung cancer cases are caused by smoking and 22% of all cancer deaths are due to lung cancer resulting from smoking. Tobacco product use is the most preventable cause of cancer worldwide. Survival rates for lung cancer are less than 20% and if you’re a smoker who’s exposed to inhaled toxins where you work, your chance of survival drops to just over 3%. It’s the carcinogenic chemicals used in the process of manufacturing tobacco products that cause cancer – not the tobacco itself. A single cigarette contains 69 known cancer-causing carcinogens and over 4,000 chemicals. Someone dies from lung cancer every 30 seconds around the world… about the time it took you to read this paragraph.
This is a cancer fact that many don’t see coming. Sleep deprivation – defined as getting less than six hours of sleep per day – increases your risk of colon cancer. Recent studies also showed a higher risk of cancer among those who work night shift schedules. It makes sense. The benefit of healing sleep is one of the most underestimated ways to keep your body strong and cancer-free.
Every day, more than 40 children are diagnosed with cancer in the U.S. alone – with 175,000 thousand children being diagnosed worldwide each year. Cancer is the #1 disease killer of children. Today, cancer (and cancer treatments) will claim the lives of four American children – more than complications from congenital birth defects, type 1 diabetes, and asthma combined. The survival rates among children with cancer are not improving because the conventional treatments (chemo and radiation) make things worse and there’s very little emphasis on finding the cause rather than merely treating symptoms.
Popular cold cuts, sausage, hot dogs, and bacon contain nitrates. They’re listed on the label as sodium nitrate and potassium nitrite. Nitrates are chemical additives used in processed meats to preserve them and add flavor. Preparation with high heat and ingestion causes a chemical reaction with the digestive fluids in your body, converting nitrates to nitrites, which is a known carcinogen. Nitrates also filter into groundwater from the use of fertilizer – so be sure to filter your drinking water.
Globally, one in every eight deaths is caused by cancer. A painful cancer fact is that this disease causes more deaths than malaria, tuberculosis, and AIDS combined. Approximately 70% of cancer deaths occur to those of low and middle incomes. In the United States, cancer is listed as the cause in close to 1/4 of all deaths and is the leading cause of death in people aged 45-64 according to the CDC. Currently, there are about 33 million cancer survivors around the world (within 5 years of diagnosis).
Breast, colorectal, lung & bronchus, cervical, and stomach cancer are the most common types worldwide for which women are diagnosed (new cases) according to statistics gathered by WHO. In the U.S., breast cancer alone accounts for close to 1/3 of new cancer cases. Early detection increases breast cancer survival rates substantially.
Lung & bronchus, prostate, colorectal, stomach, and liver are the most common types worldwide for which men are diagnosed (new cases), according to statistics gathered by WHO. In the U.S., prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men. Discover the signs of prostate cancer here.
In economically developed countries, 58% of cancer diagnoses are in people 65 years of age or older. In developing countries, people over 65 account for 40% of new cancer cases.
Research has confirmed that obesity increases your risk of cancer as well as every other major disease or condition. It can also affect your chances of survival should you be diagnosed. In one study of post-menopausal women with breast cancer, the survival rates were higher in women who maintained a healthy body weight. Prediabetes increases your risk of cancer by 15% in addition to the risk from obesity. In the United States, two-thirds of the population is considered overweight or obese. It is estimated that half of all American adults have diabetes or pre-diabetes and many might not realize they have it.
You may experience no symptoms of ovarian cancer, lung cancer, or colon cancer until the cancer cells spread to other areas of your body. Early screening is imperative to catching these cancers in time.
Non-melanoma skin cancers are not tracked in cancer registries, but skin cancer is the most common cancer. Every year, skin cancer cases increase steadily. Mainstream science (and the sunscreen industry) blames exposure to the sun, but this is not accurate. Smart sun exposure increases your body’s production of vitamin D (via the interaction of UV light with cholesterol in your skin). Just 30 minutes of early morning or late afternoon unprotected time with sun on your hands and face may be enough for your body to produce this critical vitamin. However you must avoid burning! Sunscreen blocks the rays that help in vitamin D production and contains chemicals such as octyl methoxycinnamate (OMC) which kills lab mice cells at low doses, increases in toxicity when exposed to sunlight, and is present in 90% of sunscreen brands! Since sunscreen is applied directly to the skin, it immediately enters your bloodstream to wreak havoc on your body at the cellular level.
Healthy cells have a built-in directive to commit “cell suicide” called apoptosis. This is the process by which the cell recognizes that damage is present and destroys itself to protect the rest of the body. In cancer cells, this automatic process is absent but scientists don’t know why. Cancer, neurodegenerative diseases, and heart disease have all been linked to a breakdown in apoptosis. There are foods proven to force this process to engage in cancer cells, destroying them naturally and safely.
What you eat matters. The most common cancer-causing foods are refined sugar and flour, soda, microwave popcorn, food in cans produced with BPA, grilled or processed meat, and hydrogenated oils. The choices you make every day can raise or lower your personal cancer risk. As mentioned in #16, there are specific foods that trigger damaged cells (such as those that lead to cancer) to self-destruct via apoptosis. Green tea, berries, turmeric, avocados, garlic, kale, and even dark chocolate are just a few that target and destroy cancer cells.You can prevent and fight cancer from the inside out!
