“Optimizing Your Mitochondrial Function With Intermittent Hypoxia”
Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola
· Hypoxic training is successfully being used in the treatment of diseases such as asthma, high blood pressure, chronic inflammation and chronic infections, all of which are rooted in mitochondrial dysfunction
· The scientific application of intermittent hypoxic treatment started in Russia in the late 1970s. Early research showed it was radioprotective. When you reduce the partial pressure of oxygen in tissues that are being irradiated, there’s a significant protective effect on healthy tissues. Tumors are not protected, however, because they’re already hypoxic (hypoxic radioprotection)
· Intermittent hypoxia takes place during embryonic development. Scientists now hypothesize that this is a powerful mechanism that may control the quality of mitochondria
· One of the mechanisms that helps explain the benefits of hypoxia is that it raises your endogenous production of carbon dioxide (CO2) which, in turn, increases the efficiency of oxygen transport and metabolism
· One simple way to stimulate your mitochondrial function through intermittent hypoxia is to intermittently hold your breath. In clinical practice, oxygen-depleted air is intermittently administered using a hypoxic generator. The latest models include computerized biofeedback, and allow for all sorts of protocols to be administered
