Presence of free radicals in living organisms is a natural phenomenon as they are actively involved in the physiological processes of living bodies. Therefore, due to certain exposures or
disturbance of the internal self-regulation mechanisms, the harmony of free radical reactions becomes abnormal which leads, in the long run, to one or another disease. Free radicals damage proteins and lipid cell membranes as well as the DNA and play an important role in contraction of ore than 100 diseases, including arthritis and AIDS. Free radicals are an atom or a molecule that have one or more unpaired electrons. Oxidation-reduction reactions produce free radicals:
superoxide radical of oxygen or OH hydroxyl radical. Living systems possess the natural anti- oxidant protection that regulated the free radical oxidation processes and, finally, transforms free radical to low-activity products. For treating diseases caused by free radical deprivation use is made of anti-oxidants or therapeutic ionizing radiation apparatuses that have both positive and negative properties.
By way of an alternative therapeutic method, a Swedish specialist Antony Van der Valk proposed to use the singlet oxygen energy. By now special Vital Air apparatus have been developed to deliver inhalation therapy and activate water before consumption. The Vital Air apparatus is applied in various clinics of the Western Europe. The results of treatment indicate that the singlet oxygen energy produces its effects on patients who suffer, in particular, from bronchial asthma and have now considerably less frequent asthma attacks even without administering
other treatment agents.
There exist statistically significant results of treatment rheumatic patients on the 14th day after the treatment onset with the use of the proposed method. Physical and chemical concept of this treatment method is based on the photochemical sensibilization of air or water with the aid of a halogen lamp.
It is well known that oxygen is a common element having plenty of varieties. Among them O2 is the most frequently met and important as it presents the obligatory component of the entire aerobic metabolism. The other oxygen variety is represented by the oxygen with an unpaired electron which life equals 2 μs. Its moment relaxation to the triplet basic condition can be very useful due to the energy that releases and emits at 634 nm wavelength. Such quantum therapy has an impact on membrane exchange process, biochemical and biophysical chain of transformation in cells and membrane stabilizing effect – all of these lead to restoration of the anti-oxidant support of the organism suffering from certain diseases.
The German apparatus Vital Air 5+ is the most powerful device in the world that is applied for oxygen-and-energy therapy (singlet therapy). The singlet energy is formed due to excitation of the electronic clouds of oxygen atoms by the electromagnetic irradiation quanta of the ultraviolet cessing of the steam and water mixture that facilitates energy stability and improves efficiency of the therapeutic effect.
Emission of the energy quanta by the singlet oxygen electrons at relaxation (return to the initial state) provides for initiation of the therapeutic effect. When an oxygen molecule relaxes, its active singlet state becomes stable very quickly and, at that, the electromagnetic energy quanta of the ultraviolet range are emitted – these quanta have a curative effect and, also:
• promote biochemical and biophysical reactions in the body;
• structure water and other liquids while preparing singlet oxygen cocktails;
• normalize anti-oxidation status of the body;
• improve immunity;
• stabilize aerobic metabolism;
• improve rheological properties of blood;
• normalize activity of the cardiovascular system;
• restore ion permeability of the cell membranes;
• detoxify the organism;
• improve tissue breathing and reduce tissue hypoxia;
• stimulate regeneration processes and reduce inflammation processes;
• improve coronary and cerebral blood flows;
• normalize arterial pressure;
• restore bronchi mucosal and regulate the external respiration functions;
• inhibit tumour and metastatic processes;
• reduce concentration of lactic acid in muscles;
• enhance hemoglobin level;
• normalize biochemical blood indicators.
The singlet oxygen energy is applied in kind of inhalations barbiturated with active oxygen. Inhalations last for up to 21 minutes. In a number of Western Europe medical institutions singlet
therapy is used for treating various diseases with the aid of a German apparatus Vital Air 5+. There is a fair evidence of the efficiency of this method. Thus, when treating chronic obstructive
bronchitis, a trend towards normalization of the lipid peroxidation as well as of the partial oxygen and carbon dioxide gas pressure was revealed.
Application of the singlet oxygen energy facilitated normalization of hemoglobin, erythrocyte and leukocyte indices and spirographic data. The patients with hypertension and ischemic
heart disease felt general well-being mend, their arterial pressure indices became more normal, angina attacks became less frequent and the electrocardiograms had positive dynamics.
Application of the singlet oxygen energy with diabetes mellitus resulted in positive changes of the carbohydrate metabolism and reduced clinical evidence of polyuria, dyspepsia and paresthesia. A study of the singlet oxygen energy impact upon the immunity status revealed activation of cell eating, stabilization of the early phagocytosis and reduction of the cation protein activity of microphagocytes which indicates the lower autoimmune concern of the organism. The bronchial asthma patients had a trend to normalization of the breathing enzymes, better external breathing and considerable reduction of pressure in the pulmonary circulation.
