How does bio oxdation work?
The chemical reaction involving oxygen is known as oxidation. Oxidation reactions can proceed slowly, such as metal rusting, or they can be rapid, such as fire burning. There can be no human life if oxidation reactions do not occur. Breathing oxygen is an oxidation process. In the body, some types of oxidation reactions are essential to life and health, while other are actually harmful. The body uses oxygen as a first line of defense against bacteria, viruses, yeast and parasites. Oxidation is also the process by which the body converts food into usable energy for work and growth. Free radicals, also known as toxic species of chemical oxygen, are now being investigated as the “final common biochemical pathway” in such diverse disease processes as cancer, heart attack and the aging process itself. When we use the principals of oxidation to bring about healing in the body it is called Bio Oxidative Therapy.
THERE ARE SEVERAL METHODS OF BIO OXIDATIVE THERAPY
Several different methods of Bio Oxidative Therapy are now in use. Probably the simplest and weakest form of Bio Oxidation therapy is regular aerobic (“oxidative”) exercise. Bio Oxidation is the fundamental mechanism of “how” exercise improves health. While very helpful in preventing disease, exercise is often difficult or impossible to do during illness, especially chronic, debilitating or lingering disease. Bio Oxidation therapies are therefore used to accomplish similar goals, currently referred to as “Bio Oxidative Detoxification”. The most common techniques of Bio Oxidation clinically utilized today are hyperbaric oxygen, multiple step oxygen, hydrogen peroxide, and ozone therapy. Each of these has specific applications for which it is best suited. The most important physiologic or “natural” substance causing oxidation in the human body is hydrogen peroxide. Although it is naturally made in the body, hydrogen peroxide is considered a drug when used in Bio Oxidative Therapy. When administered intravenously, an enzyme in the blood called catalase splits the hydrogen peroxide into oxygen and water. A small amount of hydrogen peroxide can supply large amounts of oxygen to the tissues. Remember how hydrogen peroxide foams when you put it on a wound or cut? The foam is oxygen being produced by the action of the enzyme catalase on the peroxide.
