To provide a comprehensive overview of perhaps the most vital component of life – oxygen (and its derivatives) and to familiarize the student with its many applications
Oxygen is the body’s metabolic fuel, the driver of life. It is what we bring into our bodies between 12-15 times each minute and perhaps the most vital component of health. Without a satisfactory intake (and optimized assimilation), health will suffer and disease will set in.
In previous sections we have covered the importance of breath, movement and health. We will now go one step further to focus on turbocharging the body with supplemental oxygen therapies. While a medical background is required for advanced techniques, there are many forms of oxygen therapies which can be adapted to different levels of training and qualifications.
The student will become familiar with the principles of ozone therapy, hydrogen peroxide therapy and hyperbaric oxygen therapies. International research studies document the reversal of many diseases and re-establishment of health when Oxygen Therapies are used properly and in conjunction with other health improving protocols. The results of diminished cellular oxygen (and subsequent development of life-threatening diseases) have been documented as far back as the 1930s when Dr. Otto Warburg was honored with two Nobel Prizes on the subject. Yet due to complex economic and political variables, employment of such therapy is restricted in most of the “developed” world.
This is course #8, the final formal course of your Certified Wellness Counselor Program. Eight is the periodic table number for the element Oxygen, symbol of prosperity and good fortune in Eastern Culture and when laid our horizontally, is the symbol for infinity – infinite health, and, of course, wealth (on all levels – spiritual, mental, physical and natural) when understood.
At the completion of the course (and for many, the beginning of their Doctoral Program) the student will have gained a working knowledge of the benefits of oxygen therapies, their uses, precautions and potential complications.
