EWOT is the practice of doing cardio exercise while breathing oxygen. Because of the amazing synergies of oxygen and exercise, you can get many benefits in just a 15-minute session. EWOT has been around for decades and has been used by top athletes and militaries alike to improve human performance. Until recently, EWOT was too expensive for the average person to afford. However, today, EWOT is a very affordable practice you can do in your own home. With affordable prices and only requiring 15-minutes of your time, EWOT is a health and wellness tool that almost anyone can fit into their life.
The Science of EWOT
EWOT is very similar to hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). In HBOT, a person goes into a pressurized tube of oxygen for 90 minutes to push more oxygen into their tissues. In EWOT, we use the synergies of exercise to allow your heart to pump the oxygen into your tissues. Both modalities leverage the blood plasma – the clear liquid that the red blood cells ride on – to carry additional oxygen to the cells. Normally plasma does not carry much oxygen, however under conditions of EWOT and HBOT, oxygen is forced into the plasma where it increases the oxygen-carrying capacity of our blood. It is also important because blood plasma can travel past choke points in our capillaries where inflammation has narrowed the capillary walls too much to allow the red blood cells in. This can create an amazing anti-inflammatory effect that reestablishes normal blood flow to downstream tissues. You can read more about EWOT vs HBOT.
