How Important Is Oxygen?

Low Oxygen Levels 1 -300


If you have low oxygen levels you are dying.

Denial is not effective treatment for low oxygen levels.  Even if you “feel okay”.

Oxygen hitches a ride on your red blood cells in order to travel around your body.  If your oxygen level is too low (below 92%) the oxygen molecules can’t make the leap.  The pressure is too low.

When your oxygen level is below 92%, the oxygen that is in your blood cruises around in your circulation but the pressure isn’t high enough for it to actually get where it is needed.

You Want To Improve Low Oxygen Levels Because You Are DYING Til You DO!!

You just can’t take this too seriously.  When you discover someone you love is experiencing this situation you feel panicked to do something about it!  Low oxygen level symptoms are alarming, but they may show up in ways that seem like “normal aging”.

Just be aware that you will likely meet resistant from the care recipient when you attempt to supplement oxygen. 

Nobody likes to use supplemental oxygen.  It feels like a leash.  When the tubing rubs and irritates skin, and the increased restriction starts to discourage, it can be difficult to remember that supplemental oxygen is a healing tool!

Remember One Thing If You Plan To Heal Your Low Oxygen Levels

What Does Low Oxygen Level Feel Like?

What does low oxygen level feel like?

Low oxygen levels rob you of your health and can kill you. 

Will you feel it if you have low oxygen level?

Many people who have dangerously low oxygen levels report “feeling just fine” despite their pale color and confusion.

Watch for the following symptoms of low oxygen level: Continue reading What Does Low Oxygen Level Feel Like?

Will Low Blood Oxygen Levels Kill You?

Will Low Blood Oxygen Levels, Kill You

Low oxygen levels will kill you slowly, OR can kill you instantly!

For years I worked in a very large hospital in Tacoma, Washington.  I can not count the times that I have been part of a CPR effort on someone who had taken their oxygen off to get out of bed, and then experienced a cardiac arrest in the bathroom.

Very low oxygen levels can cause stimulation of your vagus nerve, which can stop your heart.  Bearing down can also stimulate the vagus nerve causing your heart to stop.

You do NOT want to have low blood oxygen levels when you are sitting on the toilet!

2am, lunch time for night shift at the hospital, the familiar bells, bing-bing-bing.  Code 4 room xyz, Code 4 room xyz!

Instead of lunch, we were on our knees in shit, trying to save someones life!  No kidding!  You WANT to meet your oxygen needs, especially when you are on the toilet.  When you are baring down you are much more likely to cause a dangerous situation if your oxygen level is low!

You can have low blood oxygen levels at various times:

  • when you exert yourself
  • while sleeping
  • with habitually breath holding

When low blood oxygen levels occur your vital organs are deprived of oxygen and suffer harm.


Low blood oxygen levels WILL cost you your eye sight, your short term memory, your strength, and your charming disposition.

Blood oxygen levels below 92% are low enough to cause you harm!

If you choose not to treat low oxygen levels you face the deterioration of your quality of life, and the possibility of sudden death!

Treat Low Oxygen Levels To Allow Healing:

  1. PREVENT low blood oxygen level (anything below 92% oxygen saturation) IF possible
  2. reduce restriction and tension to coax expansive breathing
  3. be as active as possible without depleting your blood oxygen level
  4. oxygen enhanced sleep and activity will improve your ability to utilize oxygen
  5. use food as medicine and guard against ingesting harmful irritants

You WILL regain quality of life, avoid further deterioration, and even reverse disease by treating low oxygen levels with supplemental oxygen.

Just giving focus to this basic need will help you turn the corner toward healing.  Rediscover Your Sacred Breathing and you will realize just how miraculous your healing potential really is!

The real sticking point is that nobody likes using supplemental oxygen, but it’s impossible to heal once your blood oxygen levels fall below 92% with consistency because you are starving for oxygen.

“(Oxygen is) 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.”

– Dr. Majid Ali



Will low blood oxygen levels kill you?

Yes, low blood oxygen levels will most definitely kill you!

The good news is that exercising AND sleeping with supplemental oxygen can go a LONG way to reverse harm and facilitate quicker healing from any disease process.

It’s tough to come to terms with oxygen use.  You may feel like it just isn’t worth the inconvenience, irritation and embarrassment!

Without a doubt, oxygen is your best bet to maintain an active life!

You can truthfully say that your home oxygen machine is your MOST valuable health tool!

If that isn’t good news to you, have heart.  With the help of The Life Breath Coach you may be able to improve your oxygen levels so much that your breathing heals without supplemental oxygen.

Definition Of Happiness: Did You Know That Your Health, Wealth, and Happiness Depend On Your Breath?

What’s your definition of happiness?

Did You Know That Your Health, Wealth, and Happiness Depend On Your Breathing?

In fact science tells us that your breathing will determine the length and quality of your life!

Count your breathes per minute.  Is it under 10/minute?  You might want to have someone else count, since as soon as you put your focus on your breathing you alter it.

Lung volume is a primary marker for how long you will live, but breathing efficiently is much more than taking a deep breath.

Bad breathing habits erode healthy breathing without you even noticing.

Past the mid twenties the average person loses 9–25% of their lung capacity per decade!

When I started teaching rehabilitation, I thought that the cause of this decline in lung function was from “couch potato syndrome”.  You know, from not moving enough.

Inactivity sure has a lot to do with disease, but I saw folks who were always working and pushing themselves too hard!

They weren’t lazy, but they had rapid-shallow-breathing and they just couldn’t seem to catch their breath!

Do you know why these hard working folks suffered the same shallow breathing that couch potatoes do? Continue reading Definition Of Happiness: Did You Know That Your Health, Wealth, and Happiness Depend On Your Breath?

Exercise With Oxygen Can Help You Kick Ass In the World, Got Oxygen?

Electron shell diagram of oxygen

Feeling like there is lead in your shoes?

Whether you just want more energy or you are bed ridden wanting to have a life again, exercise with oxygen can benefit you.

Let me tell you about Mr. K, one very charismatic patient I used to care for.

Mr. K used to ‘bout kill himself on his exercise bike.  I’m telling you!  I had to beg the guy to stop.

“Please, don’t harm yourself while I’m here!  At least wait until I leave to fall down dead!”

He was a bit offended by my remarks.  I really didn’t think he would listen to a thing I said.  I was so surprised when the next time I saw him, he was my biggest fan!

“You were right, sistah!” he said.  “Now I just take it easy and watch tv with plenty oxygen, it’s easy, I can go and go!  I don’t feel tired anymore.  I always thought I had to push myself.  Now I see that slow and steady wins the race, as long as I use plenty oxygen.”

Mr. K would have made even more progress, if he wasn’t so damned proud.  He needed oxygen whenever he walked any distance.  I’m sure the Wal Mart parking lot must have been an effort.  I used to see him in there, gasping for air and leaning on his cart.

Where the hell is your oxygen, Mr. K?”

Of course, the answer, “In the car, I’ll be alright!”

Dog gone it, he would have been with us longer if he would have recognized his needs, used portable oxygen, and got past his pride.

I encourage you, don’t be proud, LIVE and love your life.

You don’t have to be sick like Mr. K to benefit from Exercise With Oxygen Therapy

A few minutes of activity everyday can really benefit you, IF you are well oxygenated.

It WILL rock your world and give you the kick start you need without harmful stimulants.

Exercise with oxygen therapy can benefit absolutely anyone!

If My Doctor Says I No Longer Need Oxygen, Do I Need a Second Opinion?

Portable oxygen
A critical care unit is a good place to learn about the importance of oxygen. 

You will find out in a quick hurry how closely they watch oxygen levels.

The sicker you are, the more closely the doctors and nurses and respiratory therapists will monitor your oxygen levels.

In a home care setting, oxygen is just as important to the quality of your life.

In critical care, we are trying to save your life.

In a home setting, oxygen often feels like a handicap.  You feel like you are on a leash and it feels like a crutch, rather than the valuable health building tool that it is.

You and your family will likely grow tired of the tanks and tripping over the tubing, not to mention the growing electric bill.

Everyone is overjoyed to hear that they no longer need oxygen!


Hold on a moment before you give up that supply of oxygen!

“What?  Doesn’t my doctor know what’s best for me?”

He/she wouldn’t take you off of oxygen if you still needed it.

“Would he/she?”

Well, I’m sure he/she wouldn’t take you off oxygen, if he/she THOUGHT you needed it.

Certainly, we can agree on that.

The challenge is that your doctor may miss your need for oxygen all together! Continue reading If My Doctor Says I No Longer Need Oxygen, Do I Need a Second Opinion?
