Adaptive Contrast EWOT Benefits & Protocol

Whole Body Flush Description
 

This protocol targets metabolic waste in tissues. It re-establishes oxygen levels to problematic areas which tend to be degenerate, sore and disease prone. It boosts whole body oxygen enough to facilitate healing and recovery, but usually not enough to provoke an immune-rally response.

It is equivalent to spending many hours in a hyperbolic chamber. Use this protocol when you feel sluggish, tired, or just want to feel better. It produces consistent effects with the strong majority of users.

This protocol flushes metabolic waste out of tissues. It facilitates healing by super-saturating all body tissues, plasma and lymph with very high levels of oxygen. Most users experience maximum lifetime oxygenation.

It is considered low-moderate in intensity level and is an entry level protocol for detoxification.  Initial exercise time is 15 minutes, 1-3x per week.  Effects of therapy will last 2-3 days.

How it works

Toggle to plus (+) before beginning

0:00 – 8:00 exercise aerobically but sustainable

8:00 – increase intensity

8:30 – toggle to minus (-)

8:45 – toggle to plus (+)

9: 00 – return to original intensity

10:00 – increase intensity

10:30 – toggle to minus (-)

10:45 – toggle to plus (+)

11: 00 – return to original intensity

12:00 – increase intensity

12:30 – toggle to minus (-)

12:45 – toggle to plus (+)

13:00-15: 00 – return to original  intensity and breathe deeply

Please turn toggle to fill (-) and bring mask to front desk so we can prepare for the next person.  THANK YOU!

Explanation
 

PO2 (Partial Pressure of Oxygen) reflects the amount of oxygen gas dissolved in the blood. It primarily measures the effectiveness of the lungs in pulling oxygen into the blood stream from the atmosphere.  The unnaturally high PO2 (partial pressure) usually occurs when blood cannot reach tissues due to endothelial capillary inflammation. Chronic endothelial inflammation reduces below the passable diameter of a red blood cell (RBC). When this occurs, only plasma can flow through the capillaries, limiting energy production to anaerobic fueled by glucose absent oxygen.

The reduced capillary cross section causes RBCs to go around narrowed capillaries. RBCs that don’t pass through capillaries do not release oxygen much like a vehicle that cannot release a payload — it just remains full. This shows up as an unnaturally high starting PO2 and a tendency NOT to desaturate during hypoxic exertion challenge.

For comparison, a starting saturation level of about 97%, with rapid desaturation to 87%, is normal (sea level).

This pattern contradicts the typical medical conclusion that a high hemoglobin saturation indicates good tissue oxygenation. The medical interpretation presumes, usually incorrectly, that oxygen can always move from the RBC to tissue. By the time this saturation pattern, 99-100%, occurs when the person’s body has a large percentage of under-oxygenated tissue.

The severity of systemic hypoxia is indicated by how long it takes them to resaturate after the inflammation is reversed. On the pulse oximeter, how many minutes does it take them to saturate to 99% after they reperfuse dip? The longer the time, the greater the accumulated oxygen tissue debt.

The degree of systemic hypoxia is indicated by how long it takes the person to resaturate afterwards (the amount of time the person spends on oxygen with a low oxygen level).

The problem is that the oxygen bound to hemoglobin cannot dissociate because it never passes through the capillaries where it can release oxygen. In this case, unnaturally high hemoglobin saturation means poor tissue oxygenation.

Resolution Pattern

The telltale for resolution of this pattern is a dramatic drop in PO2 late in the session while on
oxygen. Here is a model for what happens:

1.    Capillary pulse pressure reaches the penetration threshold as arterial blood pressure and hypoxia-induced vasodilation deliver more pressure to capillary bed. This takes effort and some time. It does not happen instantly, and takes 5-10 minutes of effort.

2.    Endothelial cells switch back to normal metabolism and pump out sodium and quickly shrink back to normal size.

3.    Capillary opens to red blood cell passage and tissue reoxygenation begins.

4.    PO2 drops as tissues absorb large amount of oxygen until reperfusion is complete, usually in 2-4 minutes.

Effects of low oxygen levels

This is the typical chronic-fatigue pattern. It usually includes persistent muscle touch sensitivity from regional tissue acidosis. Over time this condition can progress to multiple local and systemic disease states:

·       Hypoglycemia as under-oxygenated tissues use excessive glucose. If the liver fails to keep up with demand, then blood sugar falls to hypoglycemic levels and causes systemic fatigue.

·       Gall bladder conditions including discomfort and gallstones. When the coricycle depletes lactic acid reacts with bile in the gall bladder to precipitate solids which often form gallstones and cause discomfort.

·       This author suggests that tissues that retain excess lactic acid for a long time become hypersensitive as with fibromyalgia.

What to Expect

If you experienced this pattern, you will likely:

·       Feel stronger and have increased endurance

·       Reduced cravings for sweets and simple carbohydrates

·       Reduced tendency for muscle soreness

·       Greater strength in major muscles

·       Reduced tendency for loose stools

·       Improved fat digestion from improved bile availability

·       Have an increased respiration rate at rest
