Oxygen: Increasing Your Body's Oxygen Easily And Naturally
Increasing Your Body's Oxygen Easily And Naturally
Learn how to increase your oxygen levels with diet and exercise and know how to benefit both your mind and body by increasing oxygen intake.
What Increases Our Body's Oxygen?
Without proper breathing coordination, built-up tensions cause our breathing to become erratic and shallow. Deep breathing in a slow and EASY relaxed way oxygenates and relaxes the body. Deep coordinated inhalation brings oxygen to the tissues, while deep PASSIVE exhalation moves wastes from the body.
By consciously replacing that habit with deeper, EASIER breathing, we can bring partial benefits to both the mind and body. But beware of deeper breathing that actually restricts optimal breathing.
Aerobic exercise is any exercise that increases the level of oxygen in the body. This exercise, whether it be breathing more, walking, jogging, cycling, dancing, kundalini breath of fire, or swimming, conditions the heart and lungs to work more efficiently. Both work to maintain our maximal oxygen uptake.
When the lungs give the heart the oxygen it needs, it does not have to overwork and make it more susceptible to heart attacks. Most fitness experts recommend a minimum of 30 minutes a day, three to five times a week. I have a way to shorten that and make it much more effective than even an hour.
Allergies to some nuts aside, the best diet to increase oxygen naturally is a raw food diet with a high concentration of fruits, green vegetables, and sprouted seeds and nuts. This is partly because live fruits, green vegetables, and sprouted/soaked seeds and nuts are composed of water, which is hydrogen and oxygen and mostly oxygen by weight. The green in the vegetable is chlorophyll which is very close to the atomic structure of human blood.
GREEN chlorophyll is green due to a magnesium atom, and human hemoglobin/red blood cells have an iron atom. Exchange one for the other, and you have a completely different color and name but a very similar function, albeit related to oxygen. With enzymes from raw food, the magnesium ion is more easily changed to an iron one making blood that can transport oxygen. E3Live is the best source of LIVE chlorophyll and many other vital nutrients.
Cooking kills oxygen and enzymes (enzymes are almost as important as oxygen and, in some ways, more important). We use up our metabolic energy to process cooked foods. Well, some great dishes are worth it.
Raw foods are also excellent sources of both alkalizing minerals, which help your cells stay at healthy PH, and antioxidants, which protect our cells from free-radical damage. An oxygen-depleting diet would consist of one high-cooked food, red meat, sugar, saturated fats, white bread, processed and frozen foods, and carbonated beverages.
Switching to an oxygen-rich diet often brings immediate energy and a more vibrant face, skin, and positive attitude. Visit a Raw foods Potluck or Gourmet Feast function to get a great sample of state-of-the-art recipes prepared without cooking.
Choose foods rich in chlorophyll, such as dark green leafy foods like spinach, broccoli, kale, mustard greens, spirulina, chlorella, and aqua botanicals. Juice them for optimal results.
