I get letters Balance, Pain, Brain Energy and Oxygen Enriched Air

I have been a patient of Dr. Z's on and off for more than 10 years. At 71 I am still working full time in my electrician business.

Two weeks ago I injured my back - I am not quite sure how this happened. I had terrible pain, could hardly stand and walk. Every breath hurt me. I also have right leg numbness and swelling for quite some time.

When I saw Dr. Z he noticed that I had very little what he calls muscle tone. Dr. Z explained to me that the muscle tone is what keeps my body together and is determined by the way my brain works. Without good muscle tone I would not be able to hold any chiropractic adjustments.

Dr. Z had me breathe oxygen enriched air from his Personal Portable Oxygen Bar for a less than 5 minutes. My muscles felt much stronger afterwards. Dr. Z told me that this was an indication that my brain was working better. I decided to purchase one Oxygen Bar and I have been using it faithfully 2 to 3 times every day.

Now, two weeks later, I have essentially no back pain. I can move and walk and breathe again without hurting. My right leg is much better. It is less stiff, less swollen. I also have much more energy.

Today, in Dr. Z's office, I noticed one other major improvement: As long as I can remember I have had bad balance problems. Whenever I close my eyes while standing I would immediately fall backwards. I tried this today - no problem at all. I closed my eyes and simply stood there. I did not lose my balance.

After so many years this is hard to believe - what breathing better air every day can do.

Dr. Z's comments - What is muscle tone

Great letter from a local client.

Whenever a patient/client walks into my office - one of the first things I check is muscle tone in each shoulder, each hip, the fingers of each hand and the big toe of each foot.

Does this person have good muscle tone? Is it the same from side to side. Is there a difference between the shoulder and the hip, the fingers and the toes?

Why? - This allows me to perform a quick check of the clients neurological status.

What is muscle tone?

Muscle tone is the base tension of the muscle fibers.
Think of a guitar - you have to tighten each string to a certain tension to get a certain tone so the guitar will sound good when you play it.

The brain stem - the part of the brain that controls all automatic functions such as heart rate, blood pressure, digestion, breathing rate, etc. - sends signals to all muscle fibres at a certain rate to create this basic tension or muscle tone. We have no conscious control over muscle tone. This muscle tone allows our body to function as a whole. Optimum muscle tone allows for proper movement and joint function.

Decreased muscle tone often reflects decreased brain/brain stem function. Decreased brain output can be due to a variety of factors:

  • low oxygen supply to brain cells
  • unbalanced blood sugar from poor diet
  • decreased blood flow to brain cells which leads to low oxygen and low sugar

Better Balance, No Pain, Your Brain and Oxygen Enriched Air

Your brain governs all aspects of who you are - your thoughts, your moods, your hearing, your vision, your taste, your blood pressure, your balance,........

  • To have good balance you must have a good and happy brain and nervous system.

It is your brain that registers/perceives pain.

  • A good brain also inhibits pain perception.
  • The better your brain functions - the less pain you perceive.

Your brain cells/neurons never sleep, they are always talking electrically to millions of other neurons.

They must have a constant and plentiful supply of energy to do that. If they don't your brain cells become depressed, you may become depressed and develop all kinds of "neurological" symptoms, including balance problems.


Q: How does your neuron make energy?

A: From oxygen and balanced blood sugar/glucose, and with the help of CoQ10.

  • Balanced blood sugar comes from proper diet and good digestive function
  • Oxygen/O2 comes from the air you breathe.
  • Our air is much worse now and more and more polluted.
  • Most people don't breathe deeply.
  • As you age, you lose some of your capacity to utilize oxygen/O2, approx. 1% per year from the age of 20.
  • With increasing age, oxygen deficiency becomes more an issue
  • With increasing age, CoQ10 levels inside the neurons decline.
  • With increasing age, we all tend to experience decreasing life energy
  • With increasing age, we all tend to experience increasing health issues

Take my client Clyde, 71 years old. He had experienced decades of "bad" balance problems. But that was not why he came to see me. He sought my help for crippling and excruciating pain.

He had thrown out his back - but there was no specific incidence. That in itself is always a red flag - there is most always some underlying weakness that leads to these debilitating "back problems".

Through my training and clinical experience I was able to determine that his brain was not at all happy - he had very little muscle tone.

His brain was much happier after he finished breathing Oxygen Enriched Air from our Personal Portable Oxygen Bar for approximately five minutes. His muscle tone had improved very much so.

I told Clyde that my chiropractic adjustments would probably not hold for very long without adequate muscle tone. And indeed, he reported getting better for a few hours and then getting worse again, especially the following morning. During the third visit to my office he decided to purchase the Personal Portable Oxygen Bar so he could use it daily at home. He has done this ever since.

Now, after two weeks, Clyde is essentially pain free. He has very good muscle tone. Coincidentally he decided to close his eyes while standing in front of me.

He was totally stable - to his surprise and mine.

Why? His brain function had improved dramatically. His brain is a much happier brain.

How? He had changed just one single thing - he had added breathing Oxygen Enriched Air from his Personal Portable Oxygen Bar several times a day.

More letters from clients using the Personal Portable Oxygen Bar

I absolutely love my Personal Portable Oxygen Bar machine. I use my machine while doing yoga, and once in the morning before getting out of bed and in the evening after I get in bed. This way I get oxygenated 3 times a day.

What I have found is by using this machine, I have increased stamina during the day. I seem to be able to do household projects after I get off work, and on my days off I am able to actually have a longer day. Before I received my machine I felt a lack of energy and sluggish. I am now more mentally alert, I think faster too. My hair is growing faster and so are my nails. I also used to have angina pain, which I no longer have.
