What is it?
“Singlet Oxygen Therapy” or “Active Oxygen Therapy” is a form of natural treatment that enriches the air with therapeutic properties.
Through a nasal cannula, the air produced in the machine is continuously inhaled and the benefits of this air are then distributed to other areas of the body.
Active Oxygen therapy is widely used in countries such as Germany and England and there are already numerous studies proving its use in the adjuvant treatment of cancer.
It is a safe, non-invasive and non-toxic therapy.
How does it work?
Similar to what happens in plants during the photosynthesis process, the equipment is capable of simulating the same conditions causing oxygen to be activated (singlet oxygen) and, after reverting back to its normal state (trivalent state), it emits energy that it is absorbed by the moisture in the air you breathe.
This energy emitted by the oxygen molecule (similarly to what occurs in photosynthesis) is then carried to the cells, causing a slight oxidative effect that activates the body’s natural defense mechanisms.
- Decreases free radicals (indirect effect)
- Reduces stress levels
- Increases energy levels
- Sleep improvement
- Improved Sports Performance
- Infection Control
Cautions and Side Effects
There are no cautions (except in recent ENT surgery situations). Side effects are rare, but some people may report a feeling of mental fog in the first few sessions.
