Oxygen and Heat-Related Illness

Heat-related illness and deaths remain a hot-weather tragedy. The newly-named organization, Oxygen Research Institute (ORI), will begin a data mining task that might prove helpful.

First responders and EMTs are often the initial contact with those suffering from the heat. Do they monitor the blood-oxygen saturation with a pulse oximeter? If so, what are those numbers?

Oxygen in liquids is pushed out of saturation by heat. Our bodies are 60% water and if overheated, it’s a fact that oxygen is reduced. The theory that heat-related illness is due more to oxygen deficit than dehydration could be life-saving, if proven to be accurate.

Does Tom Brady Drink Oxygen-Infused Water?

We know that his workout regimen is killer, but effective. We know that his diet is maniacly controlled. And lately we’ve learned that he drinks a LOT of water – enough to cause serious health problems in lesser people.

But, what if Tom Brady drinks OXYGEN INFUSED water? Like the Williams sisters did. “It’s the water my daughters, Serena and Venus, rely on during their training,” Richard Williams said. “`It offers them the oxygen they need while on the court …”

What if Tom Brady’s phenominal athletic success, and Venus’ and Serena’s, is , partially at least, the result of supplemental oxygen from drinking oxygen-infused water?


When I open any book about diet, wellness, autism, healthy lifestyles, aging, disease, I go to the Index and look for the word Oxygen. 9 times out of 10, the word isn’t even in there and when it does appear, the number of pages is limited to one, two or three.

A recent example is a classic running book I’ve reviewed. The Complete Book of Running, by Jim Fixx. There are 14 mentions of ‘oxygen’ in the 306-page book, but not one description of how inhaling oxygen creates energy!

Stay tuned. You will learn things no one else has ever told you. And these are life/death things. Stay tuned.

Does Vitamin E help wounds heal?

The short answer is YES, but here’s they ‘why’ of it:

In Adelle Davis’ “Let’s Get Well”, she says “When Vitamin E is generously supplied, the need for oxygen in the tissues is markedly reduced.” She provides multiple scientific resources. When a wound occurs, healing requires more oxygen than is available in the air and the result is an unsightly scar. When Vitamin E is applied, the oxygen requirement is reduced and scarring is more rapid and less unsightly.

Now, think about your organ tissue. Oxygen need for vital organ function is considerable. Vitamin E may reduce that requirement so the organ can function more efficiently.

The Big Pitcher

Steve is currently on 22 meds a day but since his double transplant surgery (heart and lungs) in 2004, he has been on many more.

I continue to tell folks having to take meds for transplant — get The Big Pitcher from Oxygen Orchard!

Hot Damn

Hot town! Summer in the city!

Heat stress, we are often told, is not to be taken lightly. A recent hailstorm brought out legions of roofers. Drive down any street and there is ample evidence of heat-related stress during this hot summer.

Those working or exercising outside need to know this: Oxygen is as important, if not more important in avoiding heat stress than that old bromide, Hydration! Why is this?

Oxygen, the O2 molecule that we breathe, doesn’t like heat – it is pushed out of suspension and out of our body fluids when we become heated. A basic law of physics is that heated liquid (water) has low levels of oxygen.

Rebecca Maitland, in a Houston Chronicle article, July 13, ’17, lists symptoms of heat stress (with my comments):

  1. Profuse sweating (the body’s involuntary attempts to cool down)
  2. Paleness (vital organs become primary receivers of oxygen-carrying blood)
  3. Muscle cramps (always an indication of hypoxia, or inadequate oxygen in the muscle cells)
  4. Weakness (food + OXYGEN = energy)
  5. Headache (brain not receiving adequate oxygen … and there’s more here but that’s another blog post about pH)
  6. Nausea or vomiting (the body’s way of ridding itself of oxygen-demanding digestive activity)
  7. Weak but rapid pulse (call it circulatory system lite; again, the body’s involuntary way, though diminished due to lack of oxygen, of delivering oxygen to vital organs)

OSHA tells us that “age, weight, degree of physical fitness, degree of acclimatization, metabolism, dehydration, use of alcohol or drugs, and a variety of medical conditions such as hypertension all affect a person’s sensitivity to heat. ” All oxygen-related, so be careful out there and think oxygen!

Big Soda Suit

Big Soda Suit: Losing more people to sweets than to the street

It’s become really clear to me that we’re losing more people to the sweets than to the streets,” says one of two pastors who are suing Coca Cola and the American Beverage Association, saying sugary drinks are killing their communities. Big Soda has been stealth marketing to people of color and it is this population who drink the most soda, according to an article in The Washington Post.

Studies show that Blacks and Hispanics make up about 44 % of soda drinkers in the US. This group also ranks highest in heart disease, diabetes, stroke, obesity and lower extremity amputations.

Why is this? In the lab, as in the human body, sugar is an ‘oxygen scavenger’. The sugar molecule is slow to metabolize and therefore takes a lot of oxygen to break down fully. This
leaves less oxygen to support vital processes, such as heart, brain, liver, pancreas and metabolism.

The balance of oxygen supply and demand is key to health and wellness. Think oxygen!

Vitamin Overdose

“Evidence shows that people who take more dietary supplements than needed tend to have a higher risk of developing cancer.”

A report from the UK today indicates that taking too many vitamin supplements leads to higher rates of lung cancer and other diseases  The findings will be presented at a US cancer symposium later this year.

In this blog, you’ll be seeing more examples of how this formula works (and more often, doesn’t work)

Nutrients + Oxygen = Energy

where, “Nutrients” is everything that enters the body, i.e. food, drink, air pollution and even stress-caused hormones.

Oxygen is required to efficiently metabolize all these organics.  When oxygen in the cell is inadequate for the job, the cell becomes unhealthy.  Too much of a good thing — too many vitamins and supplements – -can cause serious effects.  Remember: It’s all about the oxygen!


By popular demand, our blog is back!  So many of our customers and fans have learned the important concept of oxygen balance for health and wellness and this blog will be a platform for sharing the many facts we have discovered in our 15-year research journey.

We’ll also talk about our business, Oxygen Orchard, Inc., and its amazing past, present and future.  We’ll share new and interesting questions and comments from our growing base and even some insight into how Oxygen Orchard ticks.  Plus at least one major announcement on the near horizon that is so huge, so astoundingly wonderful for so many people — I can hardly wait, but wait I must.  We’ll make the announcement on July 4th, right here on the Oxygen Orchard blog!

We have a lot to say so visit often!
