The Oxy-Bounce Program is a remarkably successful effort to address a problem that most people in the United States, and in the world, face today. This problem is a lack of "Vitamin O" or oxygen. Researchers have estimated that the amount of oxygen in the atmosphere two hundred years ago was 38%. Currently, it is 19%. In some cities, pollution is so severe that the amount of oxygen in the immediate atmosphere is as low as 12-14%. There is evidence of a correlation between the occurrence of cancer and low oxygen in the atmosphere. Increases in the incidence of cancer have been associated with areas or cities where the O2 level is less than 12%. Research is now showing that by the time most people are 70, we have lost 50% of lung capacity. And with aging, the amount of O2 in the tissues drops to 50% or less from the levels that most people had in their youth.
The amount of oxygen we have in our cells is directly related to the amount of energy we have for our physical, mental and spiritual states. As the main characteristic of old age is a reduction in physical and mental powers, then obviously, the reverse of that is to rejuvenate, or increase your power, by getting oxygen into the system at the cellular level. All energy in the body requires ATP (adenosine tri-phosphate). ATP is produced inside the cells in the mitochondria and is an oxygen-dependent process. In other words, the formation of ATP is not limited by the intake of food, but by the volume of oxygen transported to the cells. Otto Warburg, Nobel Prize winner, once said, "Oxygen is the giver of life." On a more esoteric level, enhancing the Angel of Air is one of the Essene healing principles that guides our rejuvenation work at the Tree of Life Rejuvenation Center.
In 1977, German researchers discovered a remarkably simple way to increase the amount of oxygen at the cellular level. What they discovered was that by exercising and simultaneously taking in high amounts of oxygen, there was a switching mechanism at the micro-circulation or capillary level, which greatly increased the amount of oxygen that was able to reach the cells. Their research since 1977 has validated this principle in a variety of settings. They have proven this basic effect in 11 different studies, involving over 2,682 volunteers, with a high significance of favorable results. Their research, and their technique, called Oxygen Multi-Step Therapy, (our Oxy-Bounce Program) is now used daily in over 300 curing institutions in Europe.
They have found, and I quote from Oxygen Multi-Step Therapy by Manfred Ardenne, "that the Oxygen Multi-Step Therapy is effective for various indications: renormalization of the O2 loading of the blood in the lung functionally degenerated by old age or severe stress; early stage of cataract, glaucoma, loss of field of vision, impaired focus; angina pectorus, arrhythmias, prophylaxis and rehabilitation for heart disease; edema; peripheral circulation disorders, especially in the lower extremities; circulation disorders, dizziness of old age, senile diabetes; hypotonia; hypertension; general acceleration of any rehabilitation program; lasting increase in physical performance capacity; defense stimulation (immune system stimulation), especially after classical cancer treatments that use radiation and chemotherapy." They also have found that the O2 Multi-Step Therapy provides a specific and strong immuno-stimulation in cancer clients. In the five-year clinical studies with the Oxygen Multi-Step immuno-stimulation effect, they have shown "a significant drop in the probability of metastatic cancer can be achieved with the course on which we have embarked," and that when the procedure is repeated once a year, the Oxygen Multi-Step Therapy may "be a simple solution for general cancer prophylaxis."
In summary, the German findings in separate, systematic studies over the past 25 years, have now resulted in the use of Oxygen Multi-Step Therapy in hundreds of medical centers, clinics and health spas in about twelve European countries. This therapy is based on the common knowledge that usually with increasing age, cellular energy production is much more limited by oxygen than by nutrient supply. Improving the metabolism of weakened individuals by increasing their cellular oxygen input, far below toxic concentrations, has the effect of restoring the oxygen supply in the tissues to a level equivalent to that of younger individuals.
The German research and my hypotheses do not represent a claim as a medical treatment or cure, but support the role of the Oxygen Multi-Step Therapy as a complement to the cellular cleansing, detoxification and rejuvenation process, and the rebalancing of the body in cases of chronic diseases associated with the list of indications found by the German researchers. This program, which has no known side effects, has neither been approved nor disapproved by the FDA as a medical treatment and is offered at the Tree of Life solely as a general rejuvenation treatment.
