20 Nov Wow! Oxygen Therapy Is Rejuvenating!
Ground-breaking research published in the journal Ageing confirms that breathing pure oxygen may help to reverse the ageing process.
The study involved 35 healthy adults aged 64 years and over. They breathed in 100% pure oxygen through a mask whilst sitting in a pressurised chamber. That’s exactly how our own Oxygen Therapy works in our Centre in Letchworth.
During the study, sessions lasted 90 minutes each and took place for five days a week over three months. The results were amazing! They are so incredible that they hit national press headlines this week (such as articles in The Times and The Independent, Nov 2020).
It was shown that the people involved gained significant benefits. These included the regrowth of telomeres by more than 20%. What are telomeres? Why are they important?
Telomeres are the protective caps on our chromosomes, which form part of our DNA structure. As we age, they become shorter. This can lead to illnesses such as cancer, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.
During the Oxygen Therapy research, subjects’ telomeres grew longer, rejuvenating by 25 years. This is far greater than the growth achieved by natural interventions such as healthy eating and high-intensity exercise. Plus, the cells that can prevent rejuvenation (senescent cells) decreased by 37%.
Study researcher Dr Amir Hadanny, of Tel Aviv’s Sagol Center for Hyperbaric Medicine and Research, said: “In just three months of therapy, we were able to achieve such significant telomere elongation – at rates far beyond any of the current available interventions or lifestyle modifications.”
Dr Hadanny and Professor Shai Efrati conducted the study together. Professor Efrati said their findings prove that “the aging process can in fact be reversed at the basic cellular-molecular level”.
Wow! It seems that Oxygen Therapy really can reverse the ageing process!
There’s a very interesting video – a TED Talk – from Dr Shai Efrati who talks about the rejuvenation potential of Oxygen Therapy.
Our Oxygen Therapy service helps people with many long-term conditions, cancer and Long Covid.
Dr Amir Hadanny, who conducted this recent research, also pioneered Oxygen Therapy for Fibromyalgia, demonstrating great success in helping people to reduce the symptoms of Fibromyalgia.
We are proud to have the only Oxygen Therapy chamber in Herts. People come to us from Herts, Beds, Northants and even Europe to attend our sessions.
