The Importance of Oxygen ...

At Mt Ninderry Health Retreat we understand that Oxygen is the MOST VITAL element to Human Health.  We place focus on increasing the body’s oxygen levels via  gentle daily exercise.

Oxygen is the most vital element for the human body.  So why is it then, the one element of our health that we all take for granted.  The answer is simple- while we are breathing one breath after another, we just presume that we are getting enough of it!  The truth is though, that this is not the case.  200 years ago the quality of the air was much higher with an oxygen quantity of 30%.  Today though, as a result of global pollution and the depletion of our natural resources the air only contains 19% oxygen and in some cities as low as 10% oxygen.  

Oxygen in the blood stream nourishes the body’s cells, creates energy and helps break down waste products and toxins. It creates immune system defence and it regulates the body’s pH balance.  Oxygen plays a crucial role in the fight against disease.  It has been proven that diseases such as Cancer thrive in an acid pH, so it is imperative that we oxygenate our bodies and maintain an Alkaline pH if we wish to maintain our health and wellness.

Oxygen in the body is necessary for all vital functions and the elimination of waste products.  Oxygen gives our bodies the fighting power to resist pathogens, bacteria and viruses.

Cardiovascular physiologist Dr Arthur Guyton MD has been quoted as saying “All chronic suffering is caused from lack of oxygen at the cell level”. 

It is a proven fact that oxygen deficiency eventually leads to disease or illness of some form.  “Insufficient oxygen means insufficient biological energy that can result in anything from mild fatigue to life threatening disease” as quoted by Dr W Spencer Way- who wrote in the Journal of the American Association of Physicians.

There are many factors that cause Oxygen Deficiency.  Some of these are :  Overcooking our food which kills the enzymes, Breathing carbon monoxide fumes which strips oxygen from the blood, Eating processed foods that have little or no oxygen content and are full of chemicals, Drinking tap water with chemical additives such as flouride, De-forestation, Alcohol and Lack of exercise.

Exercise is the easiest way to get oxygen into the bloodstream.  The problem is though, that in today’s society the majority of people are not making time, or simply cannot find the time to exercise.  

Dr Paris Kid PhD is quoted as saying “We can look at oxygen deficiency as the single greatest cause of all disease!”  Oxygen deprivation to the cells can cause a wide range of conditions, some of these are:  premature aging, body weakness, muscle aches, stress and anxiety, irritability, fatigue, circulation problems, viral infections, poor digestion, bacterial and fungal infections and memory loss.

It is a proven fact that diseases such as cancer and AIDS, herpes and hepatitis, cannot tolerate high oxygen cells in the blood stream.  This alone is reason enough to make a conscious effort to ensure you are oxygenating the blood.             


You see, when you provide enough oxygen to the body, it has the perfect elixir to heal itself. In fact, it has been proven, decades ago, that pathogens cannot survive in a high oxygen environment.  Additionally, when provided with enough oxygen, the body will rather quickly attain a pH level between 7.0 and 8.0 which is much more alkaline than most people can achieve. Again, with an alkaline pH, pathogens cannot survive. Additionally, high levels of oxygen will quickly begin to displace accumulated toxins in your body. Put that all together and you have a magnificent formula to regain and maintain health.
