How Do Oxidative Medicine Therapies Work?

Oxidative medicine therapies are based on the relationship between oxygen and cellular respiration. If the oxygenation process within the body is weak or deficient, the body cannot adequately eliminate toxins. Toxic buildup leads to fatigue, dullness, and sluggishness. When poor oxygenation is chronic, our overall immune response to germs and viruses is weakened making us vulnerable to a wide range of diseases, including cancer.

Oxidative Medicine Therapy at Sunridge Medical Many pathogens, including cancer cells, are anaerobic, meaning that they thrive in low-oxygen environments. In 1966, Nobel Prize winner Dr. Otto Warburg confirmed that a key precondition for the development of cancer is a lack of oxygen in the body at the cellular level. This is also known as mitochondrial dysfunction.

Oxidative therapies accelerate oxygen metabolism and stimulate the release of oxygen atoms from the bloodstream to the cells. When oxygen levels increase, the body’s anaerobic environments decrease along with the potential for disease. When large amounts of oxygen flood the body, germs, parasites, fungi, bacteria, and viruses are killed. Simultaneously, healthy cells are better able to multiply resulting in a stronger immune system and an overall improved immune response. Additionally, oxidative therapies oxygenate the body and help change anaerobic environments in the body into aerobic environments. This change in the body’s environment not only makes the body an inhospitable host to cancer cells, it actually kills cancer cells.

Effects of Oxidative Medicine

According to Dr. Frank Shallenberger, MD, oxidative therapies have the following effects on the human body:

Oxidative medicine therapies can help cancer patients tremendously. This type of treatment is one of the most effective ways to increase the immune system and detoxify the body and at the same time oxygenate the body. Ozone is used primarily to kill viruses, destroy bacteria, eliminate fungi, and change the body’s anaerobic environment into an aerobic one. It also oxygenates the blood, improves circulation, stimulates other oxygen-producing functions in the body, and helps regulate the immune system.

Oxidative stress can activate a variety of transcription factors, which lead to the differential expression of some genes involved in inflammatory pathways. The inflammation triggered by oxidative stress is the cause of many chronic diseases.

Polyphenols have been proposed to be useful as adjuvant therapy for their potential anti-inflammatory effect, associated with antioxidant activity, and inhibition of enzymes involved in the production of eicosanoids. This review aims at exploring the properties of polyphenols in anti-inflammation and oxidation and the mechanisms of polyphenols inhibiting molecular signaling pathways which are activated by oxidative stress, as well as the possible roles of polyphenols in inflammation-mediated chronic disorders. Such data can be helpful for the development of future antioxidant therapeutics and new anti-inflammatory drugs. 1942-0900, https://doi.org/10.1155/2016/7432797, 10.1155/2016/7432797, Oxidative Medicine and Cellular Longevity, Hindawi Publishing Corporation

Oxygen-free radicals, reactive oxygen species (ROS) or reactive nitrogen species (RNS), are known by their “double-sided” nature in biological systems. The beneficial effects of ROS involve physiological roles as weapons in the arsenal of the immune system (destroying bacteria within phagocytic cells) and role in programmed cell death (apoptosis). On the other hand, the redox imbalance in favor of the prooxidants results in an overproduction of the ROS/RNS leading to oxidative stress.
This imbalance can, therefore, be related to oncogenic stimulation. High levels of ROS disrupt cellular processes by nonspecifically attacking proteins, lipids, and DNA. It appears that DNA damage is the key player in cancer initiation and the formation of 8-OH-G, a potential biomarker for carcinogenesis. The harmful effect of ROS is neutralized by an antioxidant protection treatment as they convert ROS into less reactive species.
However, contradictory epidemiological results show that supplementation above physiological doses recommended for antioxidants and taken over a long period can lead to harmful effects and even increase the risk of cancer. Thus, we are describing here some of the latest updates on the involvement of oxidative stress in cancer pathology and a double view on the role of the antioxidants in this context and how this could be relevant in the management and pathology of cancer.
