What is Oxidative Stress? Using Hydrogen to tame your Oxidative Fires

Oxidative stress is a by productive of living. We can’t breathe or digest food, meaning, have a metabolism, without having an exhaust made of free radicals that cause oxidative stress. If we have too many free radicals for too long excess oxidative stress leads to inflammation, which leads to all kinds of diseases. All of us alive today must worry about oxidative stress.
Thus, there is nothing more direct in treating diseases than bringing down oxidative stress. Antioxidants are responsible for keeping control of free radicals thus reducing the levels of oxidative stress. That is why Vitamin C, for instance, does much for cancer and sepsis patients, if it is given in high enough dosages intravenously.
Hydrogen, the smallest antioxidant, goes right to free radicals and neutralize them, turns them to water making hydrogen the ultimate controller of oxidative stress. Hydrogen is especially useful because it can be inhaled continuously until recovery is evident. This is why hydrogen has a future in intensive care and emergency departments and even in ambulances.
The World Health Organization recognizes clearly that living in the cities causes constant oxidative stress because of the pollution. Since we breathe continuously such health damaging pollution it begs us to have the antioxidant power of hydrogen available for the entire family.
The story only gets worse. In July 2015, a review of existing studies on radiofrequency radiation (RFR) was published by National Academy of Sciences in Ukraine, Indiana University, and the University of Campinas in Brazil. Based on “93 out of 100 peer-reviewed studies, it concluded that low-intensity RFR radio-frequency radiation is an expressive oxidative agent for living cells with a high pathogenic potential, and that oxidative stress induced by RFR exposure should be recognized as one of primary mechanisms of biological activity of this kind of radiation. This explains a range of biological/health effects of low-intensity RFR, which includes both cancer and non-cancer pathologies.”
Oxidative Stress and the Immune System
Manfred Kopf and his team of research scientists have shown that higher doses of antioxidants like vitamin E can reduce the stress on immune cells. Just another example of antioxidant power and why Hydrogen provides safe fast acting support directly to the immune system’s cells.
Manfred Kopf, a professor at ETH Zurich’s Institute of Molecular Health Sciences, have identified a phenomenon that explains the effects of oxidative stress on immune cells. Whenever a foreign body such as a virus or other pathogen enters our bodies, a certain class of immune cells – the T cells – jump into action, proliferating rapidly. One sub-class of these cells, the CD8+ T cells, eliminate the virus by killing cells it has infected. Other T cells, known as CD4+ T cells, coordinate the immune response to all kinds of pathogens. These are the generals in the immune system’s army.
Immune response do not work well if significant oxidative stress is damaging the T cells and depriving the body of the tools it needs to repair them, which means the immune system cannot eliminate the pathogen and the infection becomes chronic.
Researchers were able to save the immune cells from cell death by mixing high dosages of vitamin E into animals food. When enough antioxidants to protect the T cells’ cell membranes from damage were pumped into rats systems their T cells could multiply and successfully fend off the viral infection.
We are the first to demonstrate that oxidative stress causes immune cells to suffer the same type of death as cancer cells,”Kopf said.
Hydrogen makes sense in all events of excessive oxidative stress. The closer to death we are, or the later the stage of cancer the more oxidative stress we will be under so again we have ever reason to imagine a future of medicine where oxygen will never be given in hospitals without hydrogen included.
Patients with certain neuro-degenerative diseases or diabetes suffer massive oxidative stress, and in these cases for these diseases hydrogen would be a worthwhile addition to treatment.
Everything in the world today is increasing our oxidative stress, not only our internal stress from dealing of being alive, but the increasing radiation, heavy metals, chemicals. We are surrounded, we are walking living, breathing in a sea of toxicity, especially in cities. So, all these things suggest that hydrogen is a real answer for the 21st century, if one wants to live healthy, be more alive, stay alive longer, hydrogen is your answer.
Inhaling hydrogen gas with a hydrogen device can extinguish the most intense oxidative fires and inflammation, which means we have a reasonable chance of pulling out of whatever disease we are facing if one has the sense to back up the use of this medical gas with a full protocol of concentrated natural medicines. In a sense hydrogen is the ultimate medicine. From a cell’s point of view, hydrogen inhalation is like standing under a waterfall that invigorates even as it cools.
