Reduced oxygen during respiratory injury inhibits immunity and decreases energy production. Reduced immunity makes it difficult for the body to overcome infection causing respiratory infections, such as the flu, to become long lasting and even dangerous.
Influenza and colds injure the respiratory system.
This guide explains how to maintain oxygen levels in your body during recovery to reduce symptoms and accelerate recovery.
The model uses extra oxygen and physical challenge to increase oxygen levels in the body. Most users experience near-normal energy, good immune performance, and minimal discomfort. The only real challenge is overcoming the natural instinct to lay in bed, instead of using LiveO2 when you are sick.
This method describes three techniques helpful during different phases of the illness cycle:
- Incubation support when exposure is suspected
- Acute support — when exertion is not possible due to illness
- Recovery support — to optimize energy and immunity during recovery
These techniques are designed to overcome obstacles to oxygen absorption which occur as a result of respiratory infection:
- Mucus in the lungs blocks oxygen absorption.
- Loss of lung cells reduce oxygen absorption.
This loss of oxygenation inhibits the immune system and makes it harder for the body to overcome the infection. This effect explains why respiratory infections last a long time and tend to be dangerous for those weakened by age or other factors.
