Oxygen - The Best Medicine / Blog # 2

I last Blog on 9/17; we began a discussion of the importance of oxygen for, not only powerful and controlled Singing and Speaking, but for overall physical health. It is a fact that, when many of us search for solutions to proper Vocal Training, Breathing Exercises or Remedies for Sore Vocal Chords, we have a tendency to think the answer is always something complicated that is hidden in some sophisticated medical journal.

Because of the bad public relations regarding Natural Cures (there have truly been a lot of scams), many of us shy away simple solutions and search for a complicated answer. Maybe it is time to simply Breath Deeply every time we breathe and start with the powerful solutions that are within our power to perform.

The absolute truth is that Oxygen can be the major key element towards having excellent health! Do you want to rejuvenate their mind and body or are you facing a health crisis? I highly recommend learning all you can about the Power of Oxygen before you spend your savings on expensive medical solutions.

It’s a simple and indisputable fact that the miracle gas Oxygen is necessary to sustain a Healthy life! The human being can live for days without water, and weeks without food but without simple Oxygen, death begins to occur within three minutes. Did we forget that?

While our bodies require many nutrients on a daily basis, Oxygen is the single most important substance taken into the body. Since breathing occurs automatically, it is easy to overlook its existence and importance. When we eat, we have to buy the food, maybe prepare it and then chew it. If the food did not agree with our digestive system, we would revisit it while sitting on the toilet! If we are addicted to it, we have to work hard to lose weight. But, the most important nutrient, Oxygen, is often taken for granted as it is free and it's use occurs naturally.

Oxygen is a necessary component in every chemical reaction important to human physiology. It nourishes the cells, provides the energy needed to metabolize carbohydrates, allows chemical transport, breaks down waste products and toxins, regulates the pH of body chemistry, drives the desire to breathe, strongly builds up your immune system defense and fights hostile organisms. Oxygen is the undisputed king of body chemistry, and as such is your body’s most important nutrient!

Consider this, if Oxygen is extremely important for our health, and complete lack of it causes death, what does “partial oxygen” deprivation does? Research has shown that a virus, amoeba, parasites, fungus or bacterium cause about all diseases! Further, it is a fact that none of these hostile organisms can live in an environment with high concentrations of Oxygen!

Lets review the important functions your body needs Oxygen to perform.

1) Metabolize fat
2) Metabolize Carbohydrates
3) Regulate important pH Levels
4) Create ongoing Energy
5) Digest our food
6) Remove all forms of toxins from the body
7) Transport Gases across Cell Membranes
8) Manufacture hormones, proteins and other chemicals
9) Remove virus, amoeba, parasites, fungus or bacteria
10) Maintain a healthy and strong Immune System

What do the experts say!

"Oxygen gets rid of toxicity. Bacteria, viruses and parasites are destroyed in the presence of oxygen-especially cancer."

Dr. Alec Borsenko

"...Cancer has only one prime cause. It is the replacement of normal oxygen respiration of the body's cells by an anaerobic (i.e. oxygen deficient) cell respiration."

Dr. Otto Warburg: Nobel Prize for Cancer Research

"...In all serious disease states we find a concomitant low oxygen state. Low oxygen in the body tissues is a sure indicator for disease. Hypoxia, or lack of oxygen in the tissues, is the fundamental cause for all degenerative disease."

Dr. Stephen Levine - Molecular Biologist: Oxygen Deficiency: A Concomitant to all Degenerative Illnesses

"...The true cause of allergy is lowered oxidation process within the body, causing the affected individual to be sensitive to foreign substances entering the body. Only when the oxidation mechanism is restored to its original highest state of efficiency can the sensitivity be eliminated."

Dr. Wendell Hendricks - Hendricks Research Foundation

I hope your understanding of the absolute importance of Oxygen is increasing with my series of Blogs on the subject. Next time, we will continue this important discussion.

Oxygen – The Best Medicine / Blog #1

One truth about life and how we of the human race often view it is that we are more inclined to believe that solutions to health problems have to be difficult. It is our nature to look to books, doctors, drugs, etc, for solutions. I am not trying to say that these common types of solutions aren’t important. What I am trying to say is that we may be programmed to look for complicated solutions instead of simple ones that exist naturally.

As we know, there is the constant polarization between medical professionals as to what types of medical treatments are better, Natural or Medical. We, as consumers, are left in the middle wondering about the facts. The truth is, competent solutions to medical problems come from both camps. For example, I have met many a Chiropractor that was very dogmatic about their patients not using any drugs at all and vice versa for regular Doctors. Personally, I respect both. In fact, I would not go to any regular Doctor or Chiropractor that would not refer me to the opposite camp if necessary. Those that work together get my business.

That said, maybe the most overlooked natural substance for daily health is OXYGEN. We’re all aware of the fact that, without it, our life is very short. As a veteran vocal coach, I have heard the following questions from my students over the years.

How do I get breathing exercises to improve my voice?
How do I cure my sore throat naturally?
How do I find breathing exercises for tension?
Where do I find strange facts on abdominal muscles?
Where do I get vocal tips for live sound?
Where can find deep breathing exercises?
How can I cure my raspy voice after I stop smoking?
How about home remedies for sore vocal chords?

To answer these questions to a worldwide audience, I have written the powerful e-book, “Singing and Speaking on the Edge of a Grunt”. If you purchase it, I guarantee positive results in your voice in a short amount of time. It has been my experience in over 25 years of teaching voice that most people do not breathe correctly. When they breathe, their “shoulders” move up instead of their “belly” moving out. This means that they are getting about one third of the oxygen that is needed to get a full breath. It is a fact that a lack of oxygen will affect our health. When vocalize, though, we need as music oxygen as possible to perform with a powerful voice.

I have a FREE on-line video that teaches you how to breathe correctly. Click HERE to see it.

For the next few Blogs, I will be offering important information on Oxygen and Breathing. Here is some important information to start.

Oxygen is our greatest and first source of energy. It is the fuel required for the proper operation of all body systems. Only 10% of your energy comes from food and water, 90% of our energy comes from oxygen. Oxygen gives our body the ability to rebuild itself. Oxygen detoxifies the blood, and strengthens the Immune System.

Oxygen displaces deadly free radicals, neutralizes environmental toxins, and destroys anaerobic (depleted of oxygen) bacteria, parasites, microbes and viruses. Oxygen greatly enhances the body's absorption of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, proteins, and other important nutrients. Oxygen enhances brain-power and memory. Oxygen can beneficially affect your learning ability. The ability to think, feel and act is all, dependent on oxygen. It also calms the mind and stabilizes the nervous system. Oxygen heightens concentration and alertness. Without oxygen, brain cells die and deteriorate quickly.

As we age, and oxygen deficiency increases, it takes longer to learn, and your retention span is decreased. We can live for weeks without food. We can even live for days without water. But we can only live for minutes without oxygen. Oxygen strengthens the heart. Increased oxygen lowers the resting heart rate and strengthens the contraction of the cardiac muscle. Virtually all heart attacks can be attributed to a failure to deliver oxygen to the heart muscle. Dr. Richard Lippman, renowned researcher states that a lack of oxygen (hypoxia) is the prime cause of 1.5 million heart attacks each year.

Research studies show that mild hypoxia increases the heart and respiratory rates; however, prolonged or severe hypoxia results in lung or heart failure. Maintaining proper oxygen levels in the body is a vital ingredient to health, vitality, physical stamina and endurance. You must have a means of replenishing your oxygen level. Researchers, scientists, molecular biologists, nutritional specialists, and others have reported health benefits from increased oxygen uptake. World-class professional athletes, universities, renowned fitness trainers, coaches, and "average" citizens have also reported experiencing many of these benefits.

Read what the experts say!

"...When the body has ample oxygen, it produces enough energy to optimize metabolism and eliminate accumulated toxic wastes in the tissues.
Natural immunity is achieved when the immune system is not burdened with heavy "toxic buildup”. Detoxification occurs when oxygen is introduced into the system".

Dr. Norman McVea

"...Insufficient oxygen means insufficient biological energy that can result in anything from mild fatigue to life threatening disease. The link between insufficient oxygen and disease has now been firmly established. The more oxygen we have in our system, the more energy we produce."

Dr. W. Spencer Way: Journal of the American Association of Physicians

"...The large majority of those infectious microbes that cause us so much illness and pain are ANAEROIC...a big word that means they live and proliferate best in environments where there is LITTLE OR NO OXYGEN".

Ed McCabe: Oxygen Therapies: A New Way of Approaching Disease

"...Lack of oxygen clearly plays a major role in causing cells to become cancerous."

Dr. Harry Goldblatt: Journal of Experimental Medicine

I hope the important information helps you. We have much to discuss on the matter and we will do that the next time we meet.

The Independent Vocalist

When I was building my Web Site, the experts that I consulted with were concerned that I was focusing on two different products instead of one.

1) A Vocal Training ebook, Singing and Speaking on the Edge of a Grunt

2) The Zoom H-4 Handy, Affordable and Portable Home Recording Studio

They saw these two products as very different from each other and that I should chose one or the other or my new customers would be confused. Since I understand when new people visit your business on the net you do not have a lot of time to get their attention, I certainly do want to confuse anyone.

To solve this, you will find that my home page is completely focused on introducing and explaining the great benefits that any vocalist can acquire from buying my ebook, reading it and applying my over 25 years of experience to make their voice a powerhouse. My recording equipment still exists on other pages but the first goal people must accomplish is understanding how their miracle instrument (voice) works and how to use it properly.

Owning your own Home Recording Studio is also extremely important to your vocal education. The fact is, if you can’t hear your own progress on a daily basis, you will have no information to base your growth on. Solving this problem is critical to your success. If you can hear yourself perform, you will not be able to determine your own PROGRESS. Doesn’t this make perfect sense?

Most people are not aware that they can now own their own recording studio for 299.00. They still think that, to record, they have to pay 50.00 to 100.00 and hour to get a quality, digital recording. Let me assure you, the surge in technology in the last 15 years in the recording business has allowed the consumer to afford his or her own Home Recording Studio for pennies on the dollar.

I was first introduced to Digital Recording Technology when I recorded and released my first CD, WINDOWS, (click here to listen to clips) in 1993. Hard to believe that this technology that today is common in many homes and the standard in professional studios was only recently in it’s infancy.

I recall the days when a top of the line rack mount synthesizer could cost you as much as 5000.00. After you added the computer, mixing board, keyboard and other necessary accessories, the cost of a basic recording studio could climb to as much as 20,000.00 to 30,000.00, minimum. The High End Digital Recording Studio that I recorded Windows in had over 90,000.00 worth of top end electronic equipment!

Now you can buy a 4-Track, Digital Recording Studio for only 299.00. It is called the Zoom H-4. This versatile unit can be used to simply record a stereo recording of a concert, a speech, or any event you wish. Further, in 4-Track mode, you can multi-track record at home, at work, on a picnic bench or on vacation. When you are done with your recording, the included free software can be used to turn your recordings into MP3s or Wave files so you can burn them to a CD on your computer.

I have many Karaoke clients that use the H-4 to make their own Ten Song Projects to share with their family and friends, give away as presents or even sell them. They are so happy to now be completely independent. For what they used to spend for 4-6 hours in a studio, they now own their own studio!

Many people have a fear about learning new technology or software. As someone has owned a digital recording studio for over 15 years, I have had to learn many pieces of software and how to run sophisticated electronic equipment. I fully understand how intimidating this can be.

Since I am committed to my clients success, I have written an FREE 22 page Custom Zoom H-4 Manual to walk new clients step by step through the process on recording, imputing the recording into their computer, editing their tracks, turning them into MP3 or Wave files and burning them to a CD. I hear daily how this manual has helped many through the beginning process.

I hope you now have a better understanding of why I believe learning to improve your voice and owning your own recording studio go hand in hand with becoming an accomplished vocalist.
