Activated Oxygen Therapy Science
Inspired by Nature…
Activated Oxygen therapy science is the application of a relatively new health technology, where the process of photosynthesis is reconstructed.
By use of a light source (similar to the sun) and a photosensitiser (comparable to chlorophyll), artificial singlet oxygen is generated from filtered ambient air.
Within a fraction of a second, this artificial singlet oxygen reverts to the ‘normal’ form of oxygen (ground / triplet state). This is important to note; that no singlet oxygen leaves the machine, since inhaling singlet oxygen directly into the lungs could be damaging.
It’s the energy generated by this singlet oxygen reaction that creates the magic of Activated Oxygen Therapy.
The energy is of a certain wavelength (in the near infrared range of frequencies), which is transferred to water droplets in the air (and body), and the humidification process in most Activated Oxygen machines.
This special ‘new’ energy acts a bioidentical signal within the body.
What does that mean?
This means that this special wavelength, inhaled by the machine user, then transported, via the lungs and bloodstream all around the body, acts as a signal to the body’s cells, to get their act together and do the following:
Improve cells’ uptake of Oxygen from the blood
Increase efficiency of Oxygen-related reactions in cells – particularly energy production
(in the form of ATP – the energy currency of the body)
Neutralise oxidative damage and initiating repair and regeneration of cells
(this is very relevant both in ageing and many chronic health conditions).
The signal of the Activated Oxygen has also been shown to activate the Parasympathetic Nervous System. This is the part of the autonomic nervous system essential for healing and involved with calming and optimizing many bodily functions such as breathing, digestion, mood and pain levels.
