In the never-ending fight against the aging process, we have
finally found a therapy that now gives us the edge. It can dramatically
reduce the effects of the aging process from your body, it costs
very little, and it can be done in the comfort of your own home.
The therapy is called EWOT (exercise with oxygen therapy) or
multi-step therapy. You’ve read about it in the past,
but that’s just the beginning of what will be one of
the biggest breakthroughs ever in anti-aging medicine in decades,
and yet it’s still virtually ignored by the medical establishment.
Why? Probably because it doesn’t cost much, so the doctors
and drug companies aren’t going to get rich using it.
But I suspect most are simply in the dark about the incredible
benefits you can receive using this therapy. I know I was for
As an avid user of oxidation and oxygen therapies, I was fortunate
to attend a lecture on oxygen multi-step therapy at the International
Oxidative Medicine Association’s convention years ago.
However, it was presented in poor English without a clear understanding
among the attendees of the mechanisms of action. Like most
physicians, I need to know how something works to better apply
it to patient care. Just hearing results without understanding
is not satisfactory.
Now, with the aid of recent writings by Dr. Manfred von Ardenne,
how this procedure produces its stunning effects becomes not
only crystal clear, but also amazingly simple.
Before I explain the therapy, though, we need to understand how
oxygen gets from your lungs to your tissues. This gets a little
technical, but it will help you understand why multi-step therapy
is so crucial to effectively fight the aging process.
Atmospheric air pressure at sea level is 760 mm of mercury. Since
oxygen comprises approximately 20 percent of the atmosphere,
the pressure component of oxygen, called partial pressure,
is 20 percent of 760, or about 150 mm. The air coming into
the lungs, therefore, contains a pressure of O2 at 150 mm.
However, in the lungs, the oxygen is diluted considerably with
carbon dioxide leaving the body. Thus, in the air sacs of the
lungs (alveoli), the pressure of oxygen is the 150 mm minus
the partial pressure of CO2 (which is 40) for a net O2 pressure
in the air sacs of about 100-110 mm. With me so far?
This 100-110 mm is the amount of pressure that drives the oxygen
from the lungs into the blood. The blood takes the oxygen by
way of the arteries to the extremities where it is fed to the
capillaries. The capillaries release some of the oxygen to
support each individual cell along their pathway. In an ideal
situation, the pressure of oxygen in the arteries will almost
match the pressure in the alveoli. When we’re young,
this is the case, with the arterial pressure running around
95 mm. However, as we age, the arterial pressure declines,
with the average 70-year-old having an arterial pressure of
only about 70 mm.
The reason this is significant is because when the blood carries
the oxygen to the capillaries, the oxygen must dissolve in
the waters of the body in order to reach the O2-thirsty cells
beyond the capillary membrane. Unlike carbon dioxide, O2 is
to dissolve in liquids and its solubility is heavily dependent
on the pressure driving it. Oxygen is extracted in the capillaries
and when the blood comes out the venous end of the capillary,
the average pressure of oxygen in the veins is about 40 mm early
in life and drops to about 35 mm by age 70. The difference in
the pressure of oxygen between the arterial and venous sides
reflects how well the oxygen is delivered and consumed.
In your 30s, the amount of oxygen released to the cells is significantly
higher than in your 70s. If you do the math, a 30-year-old
will release 55 mm of pressure (95-40=55), while a 70-year-old
will release only 35 mm of pressure (70-35=35). That’s
a huge drop (55 vs. 35) in the amount of pressure of oxygen
your cells are receiving.
This is extremely important, as the most common complaint I’ve
heard about multi-step therapy is from patients who have their
blood tested by a conventional doctor who measures the amount
of oxygen in the blood. When it comes back normal, people think
they don’t need the therapy. What the doctor is missing
is how well the oxygen is transferred to the cells.
When the oxygen pressure falls as you age, the volume of oxygen
may stay the same, but you may be oxygen deficient because
there’s not enough pressure to push the volume to a usable
state. When your doctor tells you there’s plenty of oxygen
in your blood, he’s correct. The blood is saturated with
oxygen. Problem is, there’s not enough oxygen in your
cells! You see, the body’s ability to transfer oxygen
to the cells becomes damaged as we age.
This transfer of oxygen from the blood to the cells is perhaps
the most significant underlying factor in whether you live
a healthy life or not! The more damaged the transfer mechanism
becomes, the more likely you will become ill. This is why you
are more susceptible to illness as you age! (There is much
more to this aspect of the therapy, but I’ve given you
enough science for one day.)
The breakthrough with multi-step therapy is that it actually
raises the arterial pressure back to youthful levels. And what’s
just as important is the effect is long lasting!
Furthermore, the technique lowers the oxygen in your veins at
the same time, which indicates a dramatic increase in the release
and consumption of oxygen as a result of treatment. The larger
the difference between the pressure of oxygen in the
arteries and veins simply indicates greater oxygen release and
consumption by the cells.
Multi-step therapy is surprisingly simple. All it involves is
breathing high levels of oxygen while exercising. The higher
oxygen level in the lungs creates a greater head of pressure
to drive oxygen into the pulmonary capillaries. The exercise
moves the circulation much faster, ensuring a greater oxygen
carriage. Initially, the oxygen pressure in the veins rises,
as more oxygen is getting through to the venous side, but it
is this oxygen that allows the capillaries to repair the transfer
mechanism. Once the mechanism is fixed, more oxygen can diffuse
through the capillary wall to oxygen-thirsty tissues.
Typically, the multi-step therapy consists of an 18-day, 36-hour
program. First, a drug-nutrient combination is orally administered
30 minutes before the exercise starts. The combination consists
of 30 mg of thiamin (vitamin B1), 75 mg of Dipyridamol (the prescription
drug Persantine), and 100 mg of magnesium orotate. These agents
help the uptake and utilization of oxygen.
Thirty minutes after taking the combination, you begin exercising
while breathing oxygen using a mask and storage balloon at
a flow rate of four to six liters per minute. This lasts two
hours each day for 18 days, giving you a total of 36 hours
of therapy time. Every 20 minutes during the two-hour treatment
period, the individual pushes the exercise to a comfortable
maximum, which enhances cardiac output and oxygen delivery
to the needy areas. This procedure is probably best supervised
by a doctor, though this is not entirely necessary.
A simpler modification, called the quick technique, uses the
same procedure (including the drug-nutrient combination), but
instead of two hours, you do moderate aerobic exercise for
only 15 minutes while breathing pure oxygen at 10 liters per
Some combination of the two techniques might be the most effective
The effects of this treatment are far reaching for virtually
every conceivable human condition. Not that this is a cure
for anything, but by improving delivery of the most important
substance for tissue life and repair, the body will have a
much better opportunity to correct any problem. Emphysema,
for example, can definitely be assisted, but ongoing sessions
are necessary since the transfer mechanism is severely compromised
by loss of tissue due to the emphysema. All circulatory disturbances
can benefit, including high blood pressure. The development
of cancer also may be inhibited. Otto Warburg won the Nobel
Prize years ago for demonstrating that cancer functions in
an oxygen-poor environment.
There are also reports of excellent results in eye problems,
including cataracts (this is understandable, since the lens
of the eye is known to be oxygen-deficient already). Other
illnesses that benefit from multi-step therapy include: senility,
arthroses (joint disturbances), liver and internal organ disturbances,
infections, radiation exposure, late effects of strokes, poisonings
and burns, and stress.
Oxygen multi-step therapy is definitely something you can do
in the privacy of your home and very inexpensively. And it may
be the most dramatic single thing you can do to prevent disease
and restore health. Now you have the tools to turn back the aging
clock in your circulation to youthful parameters in just a few
To get medical-grade oxygen, you’ll need a prescription,
so I suggest you find a doctor who is a member of the International
Oxidative Medicine Association (IOMA). These doctors are aware
of this therapy and know the value of increasing your body’s
of oxygen as you age. They can give you a prescription for the

oxygen concentrator, which is available from most medical supply
houses. Check with them to see if your state requires a prescription.
Oxygen concentrators are more expensive up front (well over $1,000)
than oxygen tanks, but you’ll save money over the long
haul because you don’t have to refill the tanks. Shop around
(and don’t forget to check the Internet) to find the best
deal. The concentrators will not work for the quick program,
as they don’t provide enough pressure. You need a minimum
of 10 liters per minute with 100% oxygen for the therapy to be
of any use, and the concentrators usually max out at five liters
per minute and are typically a little less than 100% oxygen.
Many people have asked me if they can use the commercial-grade
oxygen found at their local compressed-gas supply house because
it’s cheaper and they can get it without a prescription.
While I’ve known people to use this successfully without
they purchase their oxygen from supply houses that use the
same source (meaning the supply house uses the same compressor
filter) for the commercial and medical-grade oxygen. I’ve
been assured by the suppliers in my area that the oxygen is taken
from the same source, but not all supply houses do so. When the
commercial oxygen is taken from the same source as the medical-grade,
there is no difference between the two. While this is a very
safe option, as a doctor, I’m prohibited by law from prescribing
it. Federal law also prohibits me from using commercial-grade
oxygen for any medical purpose. And whoever you get your oxygen
from, make sure you get and read all the safety precautions associated
with handling oxygen.
The thiamin and magnesium orotate can be acquired from health
food stores. The dipyramidole (Persantine) would have to be
obtained through prescription, but appears not to be an absolute
essential (ask your IOMA doctor about it). Acquisition of an
exercise machine (a treadmill or exercise bike will work just
fine) takes a little effort and money, but you probably should
have one of these anyway.
The quick technique is so easy and time efficient and may suffice
for those in relatively good shape who want to practice prevention.
For those with more significant problems, the 18-day, 36-hour
method may be best. For those even more impaired, it would
be most advisable to consult with a physician familiar with
oxygen therapies. A graded exercise program perhaps beginning
with nothing more than lifting a few pounds can be easily devised
together with oxygen to begin the transforming process.
As Paul Harvey would say, “and now you know the rrrrrrest
of the story.” Oxygen multi-step therapy is a monumental
breakthrough that can benefit nearly everyone and is easily administered
in your own home.
