I don't fully understand how it all works, but Marlo has given me a lot of information on it, and I try to understand it as best that I can. Basically it is a form of therapy that improves the autonomic nervous system's ability to regulate. By treating disorders in the autonomic nervous system the fuctioning of the related organs can be improved.
The oxygen in the air around us, occurs in nature predominantly in an inert triplet ground state. This type of oxygen cannot be used by the body and must be activated by the body itself in order to be able to be carried into the blood by means of the lungs and to be transferred from there to the individual cells.
The reactive form of the oxygen is singlet oxygen. Singlet oxygen is constantly formed by the body itself in order to facilitate metabolism and signal transmission. The constant activation of oxygen, so that it can be transported and burnt, consumes energy. During our life the ability of our cells to produce sufficient energy declines due to illness and stress. With Noah his bodies ability to constantly deal with all that comes, means that his energy levels are low which explains why Noah is often sleepy.
With the Oxygen Energy Therapy machine it is giving out singlet oxygen, which is very different to the oxygen that is given to Noah when he is sick and in hospital. I talked it over with Noah's paediatrician and he wasn't really keen on it and said 'oxygen is oxygen'.
If I hadn't seen the amazing results in Noah I may have believed him. Since Noah has been having the treatment he has been so much more alert and awake. Last year he was sleepy all the time. Now he is so much more awake and alert during the day. Everyone has been commenting asking me what we 'have done' to him, and the only thing we have really done is started the Oxygen Energy Therapy.
We have been trying to have a treatment at least once a week, but sometimes only get there once a fortnight. It started off as a ten minute treatment, and is now twenty minutes at a time. When Noah had his fractured leg his GP was asking us how he was and mentioned that Noah looked really well and alert. I told him about the OET and he was very interested in it, and even talked about looking into having a machine at his practice for patients to have the use of.
OET can help with many different diseases and illnesses including lung disorders, macular degeneration, fibromyalgia, heart issues and others. We are so excited and grateful that Marlo now has this machine and that we are able to use it regularly for Noah. Our dream would be to have our own at home, so that Noah could use it every day and we wouldn't have to travel so often to have a treatment, but that is impossible because of the cost of the machine, bit we are just so glad that we have found something to help Noah to be more awake and alert, and hopefully healthier as well.
