Oxyology (oxy-olo-gy) is the study of oxygen,
just as gemology is the study of gems.
Most doctors think of oxygen only when someone is near
death in an intensive care unit. This is most unfortunate,
because oxygen is what breathes life into all human cells
at all times, in healthful aging and in disease states.
Oxygen ushers life in. Oxygen terminates life. As I amply
demonstrate in this book, oxygen is the most important healing
substance, the most effective detox agent, the premium blood
cleanser, the most potent antibiotic, a versatile hormone,
a blood clotter and declotter, and the conductor of the
orchestra of the immune system. Without oxygen, the lungs
cannot breathe, the heart cannot beat, the brain cannot
think, the bowel cannot digest or absorb food, and the muscles
cannot move. That is all very basic and essential.
A cancer cell hates oxygen; an immune cell loves it. That,
in simple words, is the foundation of all oxygenative therapies
my colleagues at the Institute and I prescribe for patients
with malignant tumors. Indeed, I do not believe anyone can
effectively manage any of the systemic metabolic issues
involved in cancer treatment without an unrelenting focus
on issues of oxidosis and dysoxygenosis.
Like cancer cells, primordial life forms (PLFs) also hate
oxygen. PLFs is my term for a very large group of microbial
families that include yeast-like microbes, nanobacteria,
mycoplasma, the so-called stealth microbes, and bowel anaerobes.
That is the primary reason why my colleagues and I prescribe
oxygenative therapies for patients with acute and chronic
infections, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, chemical
sensitivity syndrome, multiple sclerosis, asthma, and many
other immune and degenerative disorders. Most doctors will
raise their eyebrows when they read this sentence, but that
is because they have seldom, if ever, explored the enormous
potential of oxygenative therapies. At present, not many
physicians seem interested in oxygen metabolism in health
and disease. I can confidently predict that will change
in the future as the basic facts of dysfunctional oxygen
metabolism get widely recognized.
Oxygen and Life Span
I do agree that genes set the limits on the life span for
an individual. But I strongly disagree with those who think
gene therapies will soon let everyone live to the ripe old
age of 115 years or more. I will make a clear prediction
here: Gene therapies for extending human life span, whenever
such therapies become available, will contribute to longevity
and healthful aging only if oxygen metabolism can be maintained
within the healthy range. As long as we continue to violate
the oxygen metabolism of our children and young, no gene
therapies will be able to correct their dysfunctional oxygen
In the context of the dysoxygenosis theory of
aging, there are two essential points:
1. Within the limits set by genes, the
life span of an individual is governed by oxygen metabolism.
2. Genes function well only when oxygen
metabolism is normal.
In matters of health, our legacy to the new millennium
is a growing menagerie of mysterious maladies. It includes
chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, multiple chemical
sensitivity syndrome, Gulf War syndrome, chronic Epstein-Barr
syndrome, "candidiasis" syndrome, attention disorders,
learning disabilities, and others. According to The Wall
Street Journal, fibromyalgia alone disabled eight million
Americans by 1999, and neurosurgeons were drilling parts
of the skull bones off to treat muscle pain caused by that
condition. In some reports, up to one-quarter of patients
presenting to general clinics complained of chronic fatigue.
Over ten years ago, the Journal of the American Medical
Association reported that up to six percent of children
in Baltimore County were prescribed drugs for attention
and hyperactivity disorders.
The essential point I make concerning such mystery maladies
is that none of those conditions can be understood without
understanding dysfunctional oxygen metabolism (DOM). Beyond
that, the readers will note that the concept of DOM also
answers many questions concerning such common diseases as
coronary heart disease, Alzheimer's disease, and rheumatoid
in Santa Barbara
