Oxystatic (Oxygen-restoring) Therapies
Majid Ali, M.D.
In 1999, I introduced the term oxystatic therapies for treatments that restore oxygen homeostasis in the body.1 My purpose then was to keep a sharp focus on all the elements that compromise oxygen-driven functions of the body—energetic, metabolic, immune, detoxification, and regenerative—and so interfere with body’s healing responses. This is a crucial issue also in the treatment of chronic inflammatory, autoimmune, and degenerative disorders.
Oxygen is Nature’s most important antimicrobial agent. Four decades of clinical work with viral, bacterial., and fungal infections has convinced me that oxygen therapies are the most effective treatments. Direct oxygen therapies—intravenous hydrogen peroxide, ozone, singlet oxygen, and others—are especially valuable for treating acute and chronic viral infections, such as viral hepatitis, Epstein-Barr syndrome, herpes outbreaks, and HIV infection. In companion tutorials, I summarize a large body of literature concerning the central issues of oxidosis (too much oxidative stress), acidosis (too much acidity), and dysoxygenosis (dysfunctional oxygen metabolism) in flu and flu-like illnesses.
Clinical Objectives of Oxystatic Therapies
Specifically, I prescribe oxystatic therapies for correcting derangements of the following:
*Oxygen-driven cellular energetics,
*Oxygen-driven cellular development and multiplication,
*Oxygen-driven removal of cellular grease (oxygen’s detergent functions),
*Oxygen-activation of the enzyme systems of the body, and
*Oxygen-driven cellular detox mechanisms.
Types of Oxystatic Therapies
* Hydrogen peroxide foot soaks
* Intravenous ozone infusions
* Intravenous hydrogen peroxide infusions
* Nasal oxygen
* Hyperbaric oxygen
* Gentle daily bowel-blood-liver detoxification
