Factors That Deplete Minerals From The Body
First and foremost we must understand that we are ultimately made of the earth. The same chemical elements found in soil make up
our bodies. The food we obtain and consume must ultimately have a direct relationship with good healthy mineral -nutrient rich soil
full of healthy live beneficial organisms. Our nutrition must come from plants and animals as we are indeed omnivorous creatures.
These plants and animals must ultimately get their food either directly or indirectly from the soil. It is our mineral-deficient soils
that are likely causing a majority of our modern health issues. Food crops grown on depleted soils produce malnourished bodies
that then fall prey to all sorts of disease. When we lack minerals, we lack vitamins, because minerals are catalysts to vitamins in the

7/8/2016 Factors That Deplete Minerals in the Body
“99% of the American people are deficient in minerals, and a marked deficiency in any one of the more important minerals actually results in disease.” (source – Senate Document 264 74th Congress, 1936 )
Factors that Deplete Minerals
Soil Depletion – This is the number one reason that most Americans are mineral deficient. Soil depletion has been well documented since the US Senate made their study back in 1936. Even organically grown vegetables are lacking in minerals – organic farming only addresses the pesticide/chemical issues most typically. The best way to get mineral rich grown fruits and vegetables is through bio-dynamic produce, local CSA’s that practice crop rotation and soil supplementation through compost and other means, and of course growing your own garden you can work on the integrity of the soil. Not to mention, the animals we consume also need to be raised on good quality pastures with good soil conditions as well.
Antacids & Acid blockers – deplete calcium, but often people are unaware as testing is done on blood levels and only 1% of the calcium in the body is in the blood. This doesn’t indicate the loss in the bones/tissues. Antacids/Acid Blockers contain aluminum hydroxide which prevents the absorption of calcium from the intestinal tract.
Low Stomach Acid/Hypochlorhydria – the body needs appropriate stomach acid in order to break down minerals, namely calcium. Also, low stomach acid can be a sign of low zinc because zinc is needed in the body to help produce stomach acid.
Cortisone – used for pain and inflammation can contribute to severe calcium loss with prolonged use. It also depletes potassium. Pharmaceutical Drugs – this is too vast to go into, suffice it to say all drugs deplete the body of a vast amount of nutrients.
Birth Control Pills – deplete magnesium and zinc, along with numerous other vitamins. And since they have a direct impact on our hormones this also plays with our ability to get the minerals needed. They cause excess copper in the body, which can be toxic, this is why zinc becomes depleted as these two minerals are antagonistic to each other.
Coffee – calcium/magnesium are lost in our urine with coffee. It’s a diuretic. You will be losing potassium and sodium as well. The same goes for caffeine in general.
Alcohol- speeds up the excretion of magnesium through the kidneys. It can also deplete, calcium, zinc, iron, manganese, potassium and chromium.
Soda consumption – contains excess phosphorous which leads to reduced body storage of calcium because they compete for
absorption in the intestines. Soday also causes potassium loss.
Sugar– for every molecule of sugar our bodies use 54 molecules of magnesium to process it. Insulin surges use up our zinc. Sugar
7/8/2016 Factors That Deplete Minerals in the Body
also depletes magnesium, potassium and robs your bones of minerals in general. A high sugar diet results in increased losses of chromium through the urine.
Excess Insulin– causes calcium to be retained by the body through re-absorption by the kidneys. Excess Estrogen – decreases calcium excretion. Same effects as birth control also apply.
Hyperthyroidism– causes increased calcium losses and increased calcium resorption from the bone. Creates the need for more magnesium. Often more copper is needed, along with iodine. Perhaps it would be better stated that deficiencies of selenium play a role in low thyroid hormone production
Stress– depletes magnesium.
The Standard American Diet (S.A.D diet) – the typical diet of minimal fresh foods, higher amounts of refined and processed foods, foods grown on poor/depleted soils, excess phosphorous in these foods depletes calcium and has been shown to cause bone loss. Magnesium and chromium, (and all minerals really) are also lost in processing and due to poor soil.
Excess Grains– phytic acid binds with the minerals in the intestine and blocks absorption, causing them to be excreted unused. Oxalates– oxalic acid is a substance which binds with calcium in the intestinal tract and actually prevents calcium absorption.
(oxalates are found in spinach, beet greens, rhubarb and chard)
Dietary Insufficiency – source of food, how it’s prepared, is it processed or whole real natural foods. And of course, was the food raised properly on mineral rich soils.
Athletes/Excessive exercising– taxes magnesium reserves.
Pregnancy- it takes a lot of nutrients to make a baby, and minerals are no exception. If mother is already low in mineral stores she will become further depleted as her body takes the nutrients to build a healthy baby. Iron is one common mineral deficiency in pregnant and breastfeeding women, namely because the needs for it increase immensely during this time.
Vegetarian/Vegan Diet – the best sources of many minerals are in animal foods. Plant foods grown in poor soil are not enough to supply the dietary needs of minerals. Vegetarians are more vulnerable to iron deficiency as well.
Heavy Metal Toxicity–
• Mercury – amalgam fillings, in certain fish, vaccines. Blocks magnesium and zinc. Mercury binds with magnesium and renders it void. Supplementing won’t be enough, must detoxify the metals.
• Lead – binds with calcium and makes it unusable for the body.
Also an excess of certain minerals in the body can antagonize other minerals and cause depletion. For example, excess sodium depletes potassium. Excess calcium depletes magnesium by dominating over it. Too much of one will dominate the other. Iron and copper need to be in the right proportion and work together. They are co-factors. Potassium deficiency it’s not enough to just take potassium, you also need magnesium. Potassium inside the cell needs magnesium to maintain it. Copper/zinc – copper tells the body to retain estrogen. Copper toxicity is commonly known in hyperactive violent individuals. It is a primary cause of miscarriages and susceptibility to postpartum depression.
What To Do If You Are Mineral Deficient

7/8/2016 Factors That Deplete Minerals in the Body
Supplementation with minerals is not a simple solution. It is not enough to supplement with one mineral to fix a specific deficiency, though for short periods of time with extreme symptoms it can certainly be helpful. But, knowing how to approach this can be tricky. I personally suggest working with someone qualified to help you balance your minerals safely if you are looking to supplement. Not only will minerals need to be considered but underlying issues as to why you may not be utilizing the minerals you are getting in the first place. It’s important to work with someone so you do not take too much of one and throw off your balance of another or become toxic.
It’s not enough to test the blood to find out the body’s mineral status. I can recall iron being a widely recognized deficiency. Back when I was in my early twenties I often showed signs of being anemic. The Dr. would then put me on iron pills and retest my blood and sure enough, it would show my iron levels were back up. But in reality anemia only counts for 1/3 of the problems caused by iron deficiency. Those were never addressed. Not only that, but if one is lacking in iron they are typically also low in other vitamins that work synergistically with iron. It is rare that a single mineral deficiency will develop. This is why supplementing with just iron, or just magnesium is not a good approach. Also, you can’t just take a pill and address all the issues related to an ‘iron deficiency’. You have to understand that the body can only utilize iron if the stomach is acid enough to absorb it in the first place. Also, iron can hide itself in the body when a bacterial infection is present, so it won’t show up in blood tests. This is just one example of the issues surrounding one specific mineral and why it is not wise to haphazardly supplement with any individual mineral alone, or without knowing all the cofactors involved.
The best way to ensure you are getting a wide array of minerals is by a whole foods, properly prepared nutrient dense diet OR SIMPLY USING MOMATOMIX!!!! Understanding traditional foods and what our ancestors and indigenous tribes and cultures ate throughout history can really help us in our modern day peril of industrialized processed foods and depleted soils. It is critical in my opinion to learn how to make mineral rich bone broth and consume it regularly. This is one of the absolute best options and most absorbable forms available to us. Mineral rich salts are another great source. Our water used to be the best source, but nowadays our waters are so polluted that is not the best option anymore. Following the dietary principles as taught in; Nourishing Traditions, Traditional Foods Our Bodies Best Medicine, Deep Nutrition, Real Food: What to Eat and Why, The Primal Blueprint, The Primal Blueprint Cookbook, Primal Body Primal Mind, Eat Naked, The Paleo Solution, Super Nutrition For Babies, along with Dr. Natasha’s GAPS dietary protocol will ensure that you have the right raw ingredients to work with.
Consider getting support from a holistic practitioner/nutritionist that understands these dietary principles. Also consider getting hair tissue mineral analysis to assess your mineral levels, especially if you have health conditions that won’t resolve after following a good diet protocol for any length of time. You may have some foundational things that need to be worked on that you are not aware of. Diet does usually help health issues resolve, but when it doesn’t typically there is need for supplemental therapy or even further work that you will need guidance with.

Heavy Hydrogen (Deuterium) in Living Organisms May Provide Clues to Prevent and Treat Cancer

Budapest, Hungary, June 15, 2015 / B3C newswire / — Sub-molecular cellular events, driven by hydrogen’s replacements with deuterium, explain medical and economical failures of targeted molecular cancer drugs, which are the main conclusions of the 3rd International Congress on Deuterium Depletion held in Budapest, Hungary, in May 2015. The Hungarian Nobel-prize winning scientist Albert Szent-Györgyi envisioned cancer cures that go beyond large molecules including genes and proteins, but rather target sub-molecular mechanisms, where the electrons play a role. Dr. Gábor Somlyai, Hungarian “sub-molecular” biologist, had begun investigations in 1990 regarding naturally occurring deuterium (D; heavy hydrogen (H)) as the cause of cancer. Results presented at the meeting clearly show that the D/H ratio in cellular water pools and the transfer of their deuterium content to different structural and functional molecules via reductive synthesis are essential for maintaining normal cellular functions, DNA and protein integrity. Pharmaceutical manufacturing of deuterium depleted nutritional products, including deuterium-depleted water, the proprietary procedure established by HYD LLC for Cancer Research & Drug Development, has broad potentials to enhance the effectiveness of current oncotherapies, as well as to innovate new ones.
The pharmaceutical industry has been seeking magic bullets to target specific genes and gene products, which continue to produce significant medical and economical challenges via drug failures, narrow range of responders, anecdotal cures claiming false evidence, poor quality of life from severe compound toxicities with enormous and unsustainable treatment costs. Gábor Somlyai PhD, Hungarian molecular biologist, was the first who recognized the biological importance of heavy hydrogen, i.e. deuterium, which can replace hydrogens due to its high concentrations in hydrogen bonding networks with undesired consequences that affect DNA stability in mammalian cells.
In the early nineties, Gábor Somlyai, PhD, recognized that the shortage of this isotope in deuterium-depleted water (DDW) sensitized tumors to withdraw from repeated cell cycles and decreased their proliferation. Depletion of deuterium also induces changes in metabolism and gene expression, which are claimed to affect cancer outcomes using targeted therapies. The 3rd International Congress on Deuterium Depletion focused on the latest advances in research and clinical applications of deuterium depletion, its present and future role as anticancer, diabetes and neurological therapies (all lectures and interviews are available at www.deuteriumdepletion.com). Lead scientists from the USA, France, Spain, United Kingdom, Russia, Sweden and Hungary presented results of cutting-edge international research efforts. Gábor Somlyai, head scientist of HYD, LLC, presented a 3 to 9 fold increase of the median survival time (MST) upon DDW administration in almost 2,000 cancer patients, applied in combination with conventional therapies in prospective and retrospective studies. László G. Boros, professor at UCLA, presented biochemical groundwork related to deuterium depletion as the natural cancer preventing function of properly working mitochondria, which are responsible for producing deuterium-depleted metabolic water to prevent epigenetic events that cause cancer. It is well known that mitochondrial functions are damaged in all cancer cells, and the lack of metabolic water recycling may be the underlying cause of uncontrolled growth of tumor cells. Dominic D’Agostino (University of South Florida) talked about the use of ketogenic diet and experimental hyperbaric oxygen treatment in various cancer models, which offer therapeutic benefits in ongoing clinical trials in the US, consistent with the increased production of deuterium-depleted metabolic water to treat cancer. HYD, LLC also proved that different feedstuffs, altered in their deuterium content, determine overall cellular functions as the common sub-molecular biological phenomenon and key mechanism to explain natural and pharmacological deuterium depleting processes in healthy mitochondria or therapeutic deuterium depletion in cellular water.
HYD LLC for Cancer Research and Drug Development and its parent company, HYD Pharma Inc, completed the first facility in the world able to produce deuterium-depleted water (DDW) according to GMP rules, and having the completed protocol in hand will apply for ethical approval to start Phase 2 clinical trial. In 2015 the first patients will be recruited.
Dr. Gábor Somlyai
For centuries mankind has sought the secret of a long and healthy life.
And for centuries it seems we were looking in the wrong place. Forget exotic pills and potions, the key to prolonged life could be as simple as a glass of water. Scientists believe ‘heavy water’ enriched with a rare form of hydrogen could add as much as ten years to life.
And by also modifying foods, such as steak and eggs, with the hydrogen the way could be cleared to allowing us to eat and drink our way to a healthy old age.
The idea is the brainchild of Mikhail Shchepinov, a former Oxford University scientist.
Elixir of life: ‘Heavy’ water could increase your lifespan by 10 years, say scientists
It centres on fortifying the body’s tissues and cells against attack and decay caused by free radicals, dangerous chemicals produced when food is turned into energy. Such ‘attacks’ on proteins are particularly damaging and have been linked to cancer, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
Dr Shchepinov’s theory is based on deuterium, a naturally-occurring isotope, or form of hydrogen, that strengthens the bonds in between and around the body’s cells, making them less vulnerable to attack.
He found that water enriched with deuterium, which is twice as heavy as normal hydrogen, extends the lifespan of worms by 10 per cent. And fruitflies fed the ‘water of life’ lived up to 30 per cent longer.
He now believes people could also benefit from the sweet-tasting water, or from deuterium-enriched ‘heavy foods’.
CLICK THE LINK BELOW FOR MOOR INFORMATION ON HYDROGEN IN WATER:
Foods could be created by either directly supplementing them with deuterium or by enriching the feed of farm animals, this week’s New Scientist reports. Dr Shchepinov said recently: ‘We don’t have to be consuming isotopes as white powder.
If you take a pig and feed these things to a pig, all you need to do is consume the pig in normal fashion.’
The technology was likely to be tested in pet food first, he added. Dr Shchepinov runs biotech firm Retrotope whose scientific advisers include Aubrey de Grey, a controversial ageing guru.
Dr de Grey, a ‘bio-gerontologist’ who leads the Methuselah Foundation, a charity which aims for ‘the defeat of age-related disease and the indefinite extension of the healthy human lifespan’, said the research was ‘extremely promising’.
He said deuterium existed in all living matter at a certain level and it was a case of introducing it in a ‘more targeted manner’. There was no radiation involved, he added.
Dr Judith Campisi, of the Buck Institute for Age Research in California, said: ‘I’ve heard some pretty crazy ideas about how we might live longer but I’m intrigued by this.’
But Tom Kirkwood, of Newcastle University, said: ‘Shchepinov’s idea is interesting but . . . the history in the field is cluttered with hypotheses which are only partially supported by the data.’

What is oxygen?
Air is a mixture of gases. Oxygen and nitrogen are the two main gases in the air we breathe. Oxygen accounts for about 21% of gas in air. The abbreviation for oxygen is O2. Every cell in our body needs oxygen to live. In order for oxygen to get to these cells, it must be transported through the airways of the lungs. If there is a blockage in the airways from mucus or narrowing of the airways from swelling or constriction, air may not reach enough alveoli to deliver oxygen. In some COPD patients, adequate air is brought into the alveoli, but the oxygen contained in the air is not able to pass into the capillaries surrounding the alveoli. This results in low oxygen levels and is called hypoxemia. By breathing even small amounts of additional oxygen, the oxygen level in the air rises above 21% to 23 or 24%. This small amount is enough to help “push” the oxygen into the capillaries. Since the body cannot store oxygen, oxygen needs to be given whenever the body is low on oxygen. In some instances, this means that the COPD patient must use oxygen 24 hours a day. The need for continuous oxygen is called long term oxygen therapy (LTOT). Oxygen therapy is important to understand because oxygen is not useful for everyone with COPD. In fact, oxygen is probably one of the least understood and misused therapies for people with COPD.
How do I know I need oxygen?
The need for oxygen is found by measuring the amount of oxygen in your blood stream. If your oxygen level is below a critical level at rest, then you need oxygen close to 24 hours a day. Some people with COPD do not need oxygen when they are inactive, such as when sitting, but need oxygen when exercising, such as walking, or with eating and/or sleeping. Breathlessness is not a reliable way of determining if you need oxygen. Sometimes, you can be very short of breath and not need oxygen; other times your breathing may feel okay, but you are not getting enough oxygen. Oxygen is not given to treat breathlessness. Although some patients feel some relief in their breathlessness from the flow of oxygen on their face, less expensive ways of getting this same relief can be obtained with a fan.
Your healthcare provider will find out if you need oxygen therapy by taking a blood sample from your artery. This test is called an arterial blood gas (ABG) and it measures carbon dioxide and pH in addition to oxygen. This can be done in the office, clinic or hospital, wherever the arterial blood equipment is available. When making an important decision, such as who needs oxygen, the best evaluation is with an ABG. Measuring oxygen levels can also be done with a pulse oximeter. Oximetry is performed by attaching a clip to your finger that shines a light through it. A tiny computer in the oximeter then determines your oxygen level by the color of the light that shines through from the other side. Oximetry only measures one characteristic of the oxygen in your body and, since it is not as precise as an ABG, should only be used as a guide to oxygen therapy.
How much oxygen should I take?
Oxygen is a medication prescribed by your healthcare provider. Optimally, the amount is carefully decided based on an ABG and then guided by oximetry. Once the amount of oxygen you need is decided, your provider will advise you of the rate at which the oxygen should be set. It is very important that you only use the amount that your doctor or nurse has prescribed, no more or no less. The treatment goal is to keep your oxygen at a level that meets your body’s need for oxygen, usually above 89%. Taking too much oxygen sends a message to your brain to slow your breathing. Whereas too little may deprive the tissue in your brain and heart of oxygen and result in memory loss or changes in your heart.
How many hours a day will I need oxygen?
In some cases, you may only need to use oxygen when you are exercising or sleeping. However, in most cases, oxygen should be used as close to 24 hours a day as possible. If your oxygen level is found to be low, using less than 15 hours a day has not been shown to provide a benefit, and does not protect your heart, brain and other organs of the body. If you are instructed to use continuous oxygen and choose to go off oxygen temporarily, it is best to do so only while resting quietly, not while sleeping, walking or exerting yourself.
During exercise you use more energy and therefore need more oxygen. To find out how much oxygen is needed during exercise, an exercise stress test or a timed walk test is usually done. It is important that the test be performed while using the type of delivery device that is going to be used at home.
The immediate benefits of using oxygen during exercise may be relief of breathlessness (also called dyspnea) and an improvement in your ability to walk or do activities.
Will I need oxygen when I sleep?
During sleep, you slow down your breathing. People have low oxygen levels while awake are usually also lacking oxygen during sleep. In some cases, people that may not require oxygen while awake may require extra oxygen while sleeping. Your healthcare provider will determine if and how much oxygen you should take at night. Your needs may be determined by using an oximeter that will record your oxygen level while you sleep in your home or you may be asked to sleep at a sleep laboratory.
What kind of devices provide oxygen?
There are several types of oxygen devices. The type of device you are given will depend on where you live and on the purpose of your oxygen. Oxygen can be delivered by three types of devices: oxygen concentrator, liquid system or oxygen in a metal cylinder.
What are oxygen concentrators?
A concentrator draws in air from the room/environment (which contains 21% oxygen) and passes the air through a special filter collecting only the oxygen into a reservoir. When the machine is turned on, this process of collection takes place. The reservoir and the concentrator have limited storage, so virtually all the oxygen saved is released into the oxygen tubing for delivery to the patient. The concentration of oxygen delivered by a concentrator is 90-95%. The concentrator is run by electricity. The concentrator weighs about 50 pounds (23 kg) and is usually on wheels so that it can be easily moved in the home from room to room. The machine should be located where there is good circulation and away from furniture and walls. There is a compressor inside the machine that makes a regular noise that can be distracting to some. The device is not intended to be portable, however, recently, a new type of concentrator has been developed that makes it possible to fill portable cylinders from a concentrator. Also in development is a concentrator that weighs less than 10 pounds (5 kg) and runs off of a battery.
What maintenance do oxygen concentrators require?
Concentrators have an air inlet and a filter in front of the air inlet. Make sure that the air inlet is not covered and that it allows fresh air into the concentrator. This filter should be washed once a week in dishwasher detergent. After washing it should be thoroughly rinsed and completely dried before re-inserting. The instruction manual will outline how many filters your concentrator has and how often each of these should be changed. Your concentrator should be serviced after approximately 10,000 hours of use or annually. At that time it should be checked to assure that it is producing the right amount of oxygen. Improper maintenance may result in low concentrations of oxygen being delivered.
What is liquid oxygen?
Liquid oxygen is oxygen that is cooled to -183° C (-297°F), at which point it becomes a liquid. When in liquid form, the oxygen takes up much less room and can be stored in specially designed containers. The concentration of oxygen delivered from liquid oxygen is 100%. Most hospitals use oxygen in liquid form. The gas molecules in the container are in constant movement, allowing for the liquid to slowly turn into a gaseous form. This results in a build up of pressure in the container, which is either delivered to the patient or released by a ventilation valve. Liquid oxygen is stored in the home in large storage reservoirs. The patient uses a smaller tank to fill for portability. You will need to be instructed on how to fill the smaller tank from the larger storage tank. Your oxygen delivery service will routinely fill the larger tank, every 1-2 weeks, depending on the flow rate you use.
What maintenance do liquid oxygen devices require?
The stationary tank should be placed on a level surface so there is minimal chance of the tank tipping. Little maintenance is required. If a bottle is attached to the tank for collecting condensed water, it must be emptied and cleaned regularly. The outside of the tank can be cleaned with a damp cloth when necessary. In addition to instructions for transferring the oxygen from the large tank to the smaller tank, instruction should be received in what should be done if any part of the system should freeze.
What are oxygen cylinders?
This is the oldest method for delivering oxygen. Oxygen is compressed into a steel cylinder under high pressure, often a pressure of about 200 atmospheres. Like liquid oxygen, the concentration of oxygen delivered from cylinders is 100%. Oxygen is stored in large or small cylinders. Large cylinders are very heavy and have to be changed often as the contents are quickly used. Smaller cylinders are therefore emptied more quickly than larger cylinders, but are portable. Smaller aluminum cylinders are also available for portability. When using oxygen-sparing tubes or oxygen-conserving devices, these small cylinders can last for up to 8 hours. The small cylinders are usually used for portability when an oxygen concentrator is the main source of oxygen in the home.
What maintenance do oxygen cylinders require?
The pressure valves must be checked frequently. When the cylinders are empty, the regulator must be removed and placed on a full cylinder.
What about hoses or tubes attached to the oxygen device?
The main tubing attached to the different systems can be up to 15 meters/50 feet long to allow for mobility. The length of the tubing should only be as long as necessary in order to be mobile, for example long enough to get from one end of the house to the other. Having excess tubing may become a hazard to yourself and others. Long tubing also increases chances of knotting and cutting off the flow of oxygen. The tubes should be changed every 6-12 months. The tubing must be the right dimension. The inner diameter should be at least 5 mm to ensure the resistance is minimal.
What is a nasal cannula?
A nasal cannula is a dual-pronged tube attached to the oxygen device for delivering oxygen through the nose. These tubes come in different sizes and lengths. Make sure that the one you have fits you well. The typical length of the tubing is about 2 meters (6 feet). The nasal cannula should be changed approximately once a month due to the plastic nasal cannula becoming hard and stiff. The part of the cannula that is situated in the nose may be washed and the rest of the cannula may be wiped with a damp cloth.
What are oxygen sparing/conserving devices?
Oxygen-sparing/conserving devices are devices used to reduce the amount of oxygen needed from the oxygen source (liquid, concentrator or cylinder). These devices improve the efficiency of the delivery of oxygen, reducing the amount of oxygen that is used. This is accomplished by increasing the flow of oxygen on inhalation and limiting the flow of oxygen on exhalation. By increasing the delivery of oxygen when you breathe in, and reducing or stopping the delivery when you are breathing out, less of the oxygen is wasted. This makes it possible to use smaller and lighter ambulatory systems or standard systems. In addition, the delivery systems (liquid or cylinders) last longer. There are three types of oxygen-sparing/conserving devices: the on-demand device, reservoir cannula and transtracheal oxygen.
What is an on-demand device?
On-demand oxygen delivery devices deliver a small amount of oxygen, usually when you begin to take a breath in through your nose. The delivery device is connected to the oxygen source by the nasal cannula. The device senses the start of inhalation (through the nasal cannula) and immediately gives a short pulse of oxygen.
Nose congestion and mouth breathing may make it hard for the delivery device to sense inhalation. If the level of inspiration through the nose is very low, no oxygen may be delivered. Some types of devices have an alarm that goes off if no breathing activity is detected. Most of the on-demand devices are battery driven and the batteries need to be replaced every couple of weeks.
What are reservoir cannulas?
A reservoir cannula operates by storing oxygen in a small chamber. Storage of oxygen takes place while you are breathing out. This stored oxygen is available when you breathe in. This may allow you to require lower oxygen flow rates while still receiving the same amount of oxygen. There are two types of reservoir devices, the Oxymizer and the Pendant Oxymizer. The differences in the two devices are the location where the storage chamber is located.
What is transtracheal oxygen?
Transtracheal oxygen is oxygen delivered through a catheter placed directly through the neck into the trachea (windpipe). Delivery of oxygen directly into the trachea provides higher amounts of oxygen to be delivered because little is wasted. Flow rates of oxygen can often be reduced by close to 50% at rest and 30% during exercise, as compared with oxygen delivered via a standard nasal cannula. A cosmetic advantage of transtracheal oxygen therapy is that the tubing is not as visible as with standard devices.
Not everyone is a candidate for transtracheal oxygen delivery (TTOD). Candidates must be evaluated, educated and monitored by a trained team of healthcare providers. Complications from TTOD are not frequent, but can be serious.
Do I need a humidifier on my oxygen system?
If you use transtracheal oxygen, humidification of the oxygen is important. With other delivery systems at less than 4 liters per minute, humidification is not usually necessary or beneficial. If you have dryness in your nose, you can use a saline (salt water) spray. If this does not help, a humidifier can be attached to the oxygen system. The humidifier is a bottle filled with sterile or distilled water. The oxygen passes through the water to gather moisture. Water from the humidifier should be changed every 1-2 days.
What should I watch for while I am on oxygen?
In some cases too much oxygen may lead to an increase of carbon dioxide in your blood. This can give symptoms like drowsiness and difficulty keeping awake. Receiving too much oxygen while sleeping can also result in a morning headache. A sign of receiving too little oxygen is a general feeling of fatigue. If any of these problems occur, contact your healthcare provider.
What safety precautions should I use when on oxygen?
Oxygen used properly is safe. DO NOT SMOKE NEAR OXYGEN! Also, stay away from open flames. It is important that no oil or grease is used on any of the oxygen equipment. Oxygen cylinders should be secured and placed in an area where they will not fall. Cylinders are under high pressure and a crack in the cylinder can be lethal. Remember to turn off all equipment when not in use. Oxygen containers should not be stored near water heaters, furnaces, or other sources of heat or flame. Oxygen containers and the storage room should be properly marked/labeled. There should be good ventilation around oxygen equipment. Your oxygen supplier should provide you with a complete list of instructions and safety precautions.
Do I have to worry about oxygen exploding or burning?
- Oxygen alone will not explode and does not burn but oxygen will feed a flame.
- Keep oxygen at least 2 meters or 6 feet away from an open flame.
- Do not smoke while using oxygen, as clothing and hair can easily be ignited.
- Stabilize all cylinders by placing carts in a safe area or by securing them to a wall.
In case of an accident what should I do?
In case of fire, evacuate immediately. Contact the fire department. Understand your oxygen system and what you need to do if there is a problem. Also, you should always have emergency telephone numbers in a central location, such as on the refrigerator. Emergency numbers should include 911 (or country code), your healthcare provider and your oxygen supplier.
Can I travel with oxygen?
It is safe to travel with oxygen, however, various transports have different regulations about their use with oxygen. Contact the appropriate business (airport, boat, train, bus) about their regulations well in advance of travel. Make sure that you have plenty of oxygen with you in case of delays or emergencies. Carry the contact numbers of your healthcare provider and oxygen supplier; you never know when you might need them. General information is listed below. More specific information on traveling with oxygen is available at www.oxygen4travel.com.
When traveling by car, oxygen equipment must be fastened securely in an upright position so that the equipment is stable during the trip.
When traveling by boat, ferry, train or bus take the same considerations as traveling by car. Contact the boat, ferry, train or bus company a few weeks before traveling to find out which rules apply.
When traveling by plane you should plan your trip weeks in advance and inform the airline and check their regulations. Obtain an oxygen prescription from your doctor that provides your diagnosis, your present condition, a statement that it is safe for you to travel and your oxygen prescription. Your oxygen company can help to arrange for oxygen at the airport and travel destinations.

A Brief History Of The Health Support Uses Of Gold
The earliest records of the use of gold for medicinal and healing purposes come from Alexandria, Egypt. Over 5,000 years ago, the Egyptians ingested gold for mental, bodily and spiritual purification. The ancients believed that gold in the body worked by stimulating the life force and raising the level of vibration on all levels.
The Alchemists of Alexandria developed an “elixir” made of liquid gold. They believed that gold was a mystical metal that represented the perfection of matter, and that its presence in the body would enliven, rejuvenate, and cure a multitude of diseases as well as restore youth and perfect health.
As many as 4,500 years ago, the Egyptians used gold in dentistry. Remarkable examples of its early use have been found by modern archaeologists. Still in favor today as an ideal material for dental work, approximately 13 tons of gold are used each year for crowns, bridges, inlays and dentures. Gold is ideal for these purposes because it is non-toxic, can be shaped easily, and never wears, corrodes or tarnishes.
In medieval Europe, gold-coated pills and “gold waters” were extremely popular. Alchemists mixed powdered gold into drinks to “comfort sore limbs,” which is one of the earliest references to arthritis.
During the Renaissance, Paracelsus (1493-1541) – who is considered the founder of modern pharmacology – developed many successful medicines from metallic minerals including gold. One of the greatest alchemists/chemists of all time, he founded the school of Iatrochemistry, the chemistry of medicine, which is the forerunner of pharmacology.
In the 1900s, surgeons would often implant a gold piece under the skin near an inflamed joint, such as a knee or elbow. As a result, the pain would often subside or cease altogether.
In China, the restorative properties of gold are still honored in rural villages, where peasants cook their rice with a gold coin to replenish the mineral in their bodies, and fancy Chinese restaurants put 24-karat gold-leaf in their food preparations.
If metallic gold is divided into fine particles (sizes ranging from one to one hundred billionths of a meter) and the particles are permanently suspended in solution, the mineral becomes known asColloidal Gold and exhibits new properties due to the larger amount of gold surface area available.
Colloidal Gold was first prepared in a pure state in 1857 by the distinguished English chemist, Michael Faraday. Many uses were found for the amazing solutions of “activated gold.”
In the nineteenth century, Colloidal Gold was commonly used in the United States to cure alcoholism (then called dipsomania, defined as the uncontrollable craving for alcoholic liquors), and today it is used to reduce dependency on alcohol, caffeine, nicotine, and carbohydrates.
In the United States, as far back as 1885, gold had been known for its healing capabilities for the heart and improved blood circulation. And gold has been used to treat arthritis continuously since 1927.
Europeans have long been aware of the benefits of gold in the system and have been buying gold-coated pills and ‘Gold Water’ over the counter for well over 100 years.
In July of 1935, Clinical, Medicine & Surgery had an article entitled “Colloidal Gold in Inoperable Cancer” written by Edward H. Ochsner, M.D., B.S., F.A.C.S. which stated, “When the condition is hopeless, Colloidal Gold helps prolong life and makes life much more bearable, both to the patient and to those about them, because it shortens the period of terminal cachexia (general physical wasting and malnutrition usually associated with chronic disease) and greatly reduces pain and discomfort and the need of opiates (narcotics) in a majority of instances.”
Today, medical uses of gold have expanded greatly. It is used in surgery to patch damaged blood vessels, nerves, bones, and membranes. It is also used in the treatment of several forms of cancer. Injection of microscopic gold pellets helps retard prostate cancer in men. Women with ovarian cancer are treated with colloidal gold, and gold vapor lasers help seek out and destroy cancerous cells without harming their healthy neighbors.
Every day, surgeons use gold instruments to clear coronary arteries, and gold -coated lasers give new life to patients with once inoperable heart conditions and tumors.
Gold has become an important biomedical tool for scientists studying why the body behaves as it does. By attaching a molecular marker to a microscopic piece of gold, scientists can follow its movement through the body. Because gold is readily visible under an electron microscope, scientists can now actually observe reactions in individual cells.
Some researchers are placing gold on DNA to study the hybrid genetic material in cells. Others are using it to determine how cells respond to toxins, heat and physical stress. Because it is biologically benign, biochemists use gold to form compounds with proteins to create new lifesaving drugs.Gold has been known down through the ages to have a direct effect on the activities of the heart, and helps to improve blood circulation. It is beneficial for rejuvenating sluggish organs, especially the brain and digestive system, and has been used in cases of glandular and nervous congestion and lack of coordination.
The body’s temperature stabilizing mechanism is restored to balance with gold, particularly in cases of chills, hot flashes, and night sweats.
Colloidal Gold has a balancing and harmonizing effect on all levels of body, mind, and spirit. It is used to improve mental attitude and emotional states.It has been reported to promote a feeling of increased energy, will power, mental focus and libido.
According to many studies, colloidal gold increases mental acuity and the ability to concentrate. Colloidal gold is thought to strengthen mental function by increasing the conductivity between nerve endings in the body and on the surface of the brain.
Gold is an all-natural mineral that is non-toxic and exhibits no interactions with other drugs, and is easily tolerated by the body.
The fabulous healing properties of gold are slowly but surely being rediscovered, as modern scientists and physicians uncover what the ancients seem to have known all along: That gold is indeed a very precious metal.
The Rich and Wealthy around the world are eating Gold like it is going out of style.
When you Google ‘why’ or ‘the health benefits of eating gold’, “Can the Human Body Digest Gold?” you only get one answer. “There are no health benefits from eating Gold. None, zip, zero. period.” End of answer.
“No. The human body cannot digest gold.”
“Not very well”
But Google is such the lier. What they are doing is completely censoring the “real” reasons. Remember, if there is something google wants to hide, they just do it and present only one point of view. Many voices, one point of view.
YouTube, same thing. NO, NO NO NO. Except for this one single video below.
The rich are doing it all over the world, and there is only one positive video on YouTube about it.
Guess YouTube is a lier also. Of course, google owns youtube 🙂
We ran across a small series of articles or posts recently that stated:
“We are electrical beings. We operate by electrical signals being passed between cells in the brain and muscles.
If we had gold in us, (gold being the best electrical conductor on earth), we would think faster and better. We would be stronger and more agile. And this could also help us unlock the hidden and unused portions of our brain and unlock our unused ‘God D.N.A.’
Scientists call it ‘Junk DNA’).
‘God’ or ‘Junk’ DNA is the 75% of DNA all humans have which is completely inactive. Scientists really think it is DNA that was “turned off” and want to turn it back on, for the “Select People”. They tell the rest of us that it is nothing but ‘useless junk’.
We can get our own edible and completely digestible gold from Natural Unrefined Sea Salt, at 1 ppm (Parts Per Million).
For centuries, people from all over the world have been used to eating edible gold for its impressive effect, its inimitable aestheticism and its mystic properties.
Since medieval times, edible gold leaf in the form of flakes and dust has been used to embellish and decorate gourmet food. The Elizabethans created sumptuous banquets by adding edible gold to their table on fruits such as oranges, grapes, dates and figs. The Japanese have been adding edible gold to foods and even to their sake for centuries.
Edible Gold leaf is edible because gold is considered under this form of extraordinary fineness as a food colorant (E175) according to European standards.
As any private banker will tell you, the wealthy have become gold bugs. They are buying gold futures, gold bars, gold coins, just about anything made from the shiny stuff. It is the ultimate crisis bet: when the world is falling apart, gold will always retain value (that is the theory anyway).
Serendipity-3′s the Frrrozen Haute Chocolate
The wealthy in Abu Dhabi have another way to enjoy gold: eating it. An article by Bradley Hope in the National says the Emirates Palace hotel served up five kilograms, or about 11 pounds, of edible gold to its dining guests in 2008. “That amounts to 5,000 one-gram bottles of gold leaf flakes from a German distributor, which each go for about $100,” the article states. The edible-gold budget for the Emirates Palace, which prides itself on its gold theme, could be as high as $500,000 a year.
The gold, in flake, powder or sheet form, is served up in everything from a rose champagne ($2,995 for a three-liter bottle) to chocolate cake and cappuccinos. The article says the Russians are especially avid consumers of gold, and like to eat it with their caviar and oysters.
Plenty of U.S. restaurants serve up gold to those who like to wear their bling on the inside. A New York chef came up with a $1,000 bagel featuring white truffle cream cheese and goji berry-infused Riesling jelly with golden leaves. An L.A. candy maker sells treats called Holiday Nougat, made with flakes of 23-karat edible gold leaf.
Stephen Bruce, owner of New York ice cream parlor Serendipity3 famously came up with the $25,000 Frozen Haute Chocolate sundae, covered in 23K edible gold-infused whipped cream. (The shop had to close for a while after the health department found rodents in the kitchen. Presumably even Manhattan mice also have developed a gilded palate.).
As much as these marketing gimmicks may have served their pu
