Oxygen is the key to health and weight loss!
aerobic: increasing the efficiency of oxygen intake by the body -Webster Dictionary
Research continues to prove that increased oxygen consumption promotes overall health and increases metabolism resulting in burning extra fat stores. A common misconception is that the only way to increase oxygen consumption is to pound your body and work up a heavy sweat.
Check out what the experts are saying:
“Deep breathing techniques which increase oxygen to the cell are the most important factors in living a disease free and energetic life. . . . Remember. Where cells get enough oxygen, cancer will not, cannot occur.”
—Dr. Otto Warburg, President, Institute of Cell Physiology, Nobel Prize Winner (Dr. Warburg is the only person to ever win the Nobel Prize twice in medicine and he was nominated for a third.)
“According to scientists, extra oxygen along with a cleansing diet can return balance to the body.”
–Elizabeth Baker, The Unmedical Miracle: Oxygen. Drelwood Communications, p.80.
“Breathing correctly is the key to better fitness, muscle strength, stamina, and athletic endurance.”
–Dr. Michael Yessis, Phd., President Sports Training Institute, Fitness Writer – Muscle and Fitness Magazine
“Oxygenation through deep breathing boosts the immune system and can rid the body of chronic illnesses.”
–Dr. Sheldon Hendler, MD, Medical Researcher Cell Oxygenation, Author “The Oxygen Breakthrough”
“When you breathe and take in oxygen, the fat molecules are combined with the additional oxygen atoms causing oxidation. The products are carbon dioxide and water.”
–A. Carlson, et.al. The Machinery of the Body, University of Chicago Press, p. 361
“When the body is totally deprived of food, the metabolism slows and life can be sustained for several weeks. However, when the body is totally deprived of oxygen, metabolism comes to a halt immediately and life can only be sustained for a few minutes. Does it not make common sense that the way we breathe day-to-day has the most dramatic effect on our body’s health and metabolism than any other single process?”
–Jill R. Johnson, Author “The Oxycise! System”
“All body functions are breathing related. Proper oxygen delivery to all parts of your body is crucial to health and well-being. Aerobic exercise increases the body’s available oxygen and therefore promotes wellness. Delivering oxygen to the body is the responsibility of the respiratory system. Breathing is the process by which air enters the bloodstream, via the lungs. Thus, proper breathing, and correcting common breathing disorders, is the ultimate form of aerobics.”
–Dr. Robert Fried, Breath Connection, Insight Books, 1990, p. 52
“Oxygen tension in tissues enhances the action of some antibiotics — notably amino-glycosides — and the immune system, and stimulates cellular metabolism.”
–Linda Collison, Hyperbarics: when pressuring patients helps, Health Index
“Deep diaphragmatic breathing stimulates the cleansing of the lymph system by creating a vacuum effect which pulls the lymph through the bloodstream. This increases the rate of toxic elimination by as much as 15 times the normal rate.”
–Dr. J.W. Shields, MD, Lymph, lymph glands, and homeostasis. Lymphology, v25, n4, Dec. 1992, p. 147
“Oxygen plays a pivotal role in the proper functioning of the immune system. We can look at oxygen deficiency as the single greatest cause of all diseases.”
–Stephen Levine, a respected molecular biologist and geneticist, and Dr. Paris M. Kidd, Ph.D., Antioxidant Adaptation
“The molecules of fats are made up of atoms of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. When those molecules are combined with additional oxygen atoms (oxidation) the products are carbon dioxide (made up of atoms of oxygen and carbon) and water (made up of atoms of oxygen and hydrogen.)”
–Isaac Asimov, On the Human Body, Bonanza Books, p. 246
“Oxidation of fat. — Fats, especially as fatty acids, are burned to carbon dioxide and water. Through this combustion, energy crucial to cellular work is released from the cleaved bonds, which before oxidation held tightly together the atoms of the fat molecule. The general reaction indicating combustion of fat is:
Fat + O2 CO2 + H2O
As in all cellular combustion, oxidative enzymes are required as catalysts in this process.
“One of the most fascinating advances of recent years in the field of body metabolism has been the detailed description of the intricate, stepwise mechanism by which long chain fatty acid molecules are successively reduced to smaller units. These small, two-carbon products which breakdown from much longer fatty acid chains are eventually oxidized to carbon dioxide and water by the same important chemical route which oxidizes the products of carbohydrate and amino acid metabolism.”
–A. Carlson, et. al. The Machinery of the Body, University of Chicago Press, p. 361
“Carbon dioxide is the most abundant of all the end-products of metabolism.”
–Arthur C. Guyton, M.D., Textbook of Medical Physiology, W.B. Saunders Company, p. 4
After 20 years of hell, I can actually see a light at the end of the longest, darkest tunnel anyone can imagine
Jill, if they could canonize a person for making people healthy, happy, and hopeful, then you get my vote. I have spent many long hours crying myself to sleep, begging for a miracle by the morning. Nothing ever happened until you came into my life. Both my husband and son can’t believe the difference. Please accept my sincerest and deepest thanks for making a miracle happen.
I was depressed and desperate about my weight
…and had given up on any social life at college. I sought out your program and did everything you said. Within three months I lost a total of 40 pounds and 6 inches from my waist! I’ve maintained that for nearly a year without a lot of effort and can fit in pants I wore in 10th grade. In fact, a pair of shorts that I couldn’t even pull up over my hips are now baggy!
I am free of the diet shackles and the guilt ridden meals
I have lost 11 inches and 4 pounds, I lost 5 inches the first week! I feel better about myself because I don’t feel like such a failure anymore. I used to run every day and I would get on the scale and it went nowhere and I felt helpless… I am free to look to the future with happiness rather than dread.
I felt like I would never be comfortable with my body again
I now am wearing a size 8, and have a goal of a healthy size 6. I feel great, and every time I Oxycise I feel so much energy afterwards, and it immediately boosts my mood. My skin feels firmer, my cellulite has faded, and my tummy muscles are stronger than they were before my c-section. I am so grateful for this system.
If I feel this good at 75 then anyone can do it and succeed
Much to my surprise I started and I felt a lot better after the first week. My breathing was good and my energy level was on the rise. In fact I fired the lawn man and am now doing all of the yard work and singing again in Church, and the breath is good. I have so many rewards for doing your program I can’t believe them all. …I have lost 50+ pounds, 6 sizes, and have the energy of being about 20 years younger.
Immediately after I started Oxycise! I got my joy for living back
Not only did I lose the 20 lbs which I had gained over the past 10 years (in a hurry 2 – 3 months) but for me the biggest benefit is the increased energy and joy for living that I feel when I do the program faithfully (4 – 5 times a week). The last year has shown me how to take control not only of my weight and energy level but also my feelings of well-being.
I love life again, and I can’t remember being so in love with life as I am now
I have been using Oxycise! for seven weeks and to date, have lost 11 pounds and 10 ¼ inches! I have tried conventional aerobic exercise and dieting, and got absolutely nowhere…but the benefits haven’t stopped at weight loss…I simply don’t recall a time in my life where I felt this good, for this long…and I was one of those people that would literally wake up in the morning, wishing the day would end.
Amazingly my weight has gone from 410 pounds to 200
At first I was skeptical, but I wanted to do something-anything-to lose the weight. I’m so grateful that I decided to order Oxycise! Level 1. I was able to burn off the excess fat right away and didn’t even break a sweat! The deep-breathing technique you have developed is so effective, so amazing. Not only has it helped me to lose weight…
I was very skeptical
“I decided not to do any other exercises so I could see how your plan worked. Because I felt if this worked I could do this anywhere any time. SURPRISINGLY after just one week I lost 1 inch off my chest, 2 inches off my waist 1 inch off my hips, and 2 inches off my thighs. And I lost 2 lbs. That’s 6 inches in one week. I was blown away. How could something so easy work like this.”
In two years of Oxycising, I have dropped 40 pounds
My strength, stamina, endurance, and lung capacity have increased enormously, not to mention my confidence and self-esteem. Climbing stairs and walking up hills are no longer exercises in futility; I can take both quite easily and do so more than ever before. My clothes fit like they are supposed to; my outlook on life is considerably more upbeat and positive; plus, I’m in the best shape (mentally and physically) I’ve ever been–even my doctor is impressed.
I figured I was just going to have to accept the fact that my body was aging
I have been doing Oxycise! 6 days a week and I LOVE it! It’s just so easy and convenient. My legs and calves and arms feel much tighter and more toned. The ‘jiggle’ in my buttocks has tightened. My waist is smaller. My skin is clearer now. I have even noticed that the whites of my eyes look whiter. I feel more healthy now than I have ever felt with ANY exercise I have done in the past.
I lost 26″ and 34 pounds
I now wear a size 5 or 7. Wow, I feel like a new person. Oxycise! has done wonders for me. I have so much more energy, more stamina, I sleep better and deeper. I have just a general sense of well being that wasn’t there before. It has changed my life for the better.
I can honestly say my body is better than it has ever been
I think the most exciting thing is that I feel like I’m 16. I would not have ever believed that I could breath and stretch and totally change the shape of my body. My skin seems tighter all over and my complexion is rosy. The breathing and the exercises are so powerful it hard to explain to people. Even my husband can’t believe the change. He has had friends ask him if I had been lipoed.
I wanted something I could do in the comfort of my home without having to join a gym…I have found it!
Since starting Oxycise! I have lost 10 pounds and 11 inches…Plus, I have had a ton of other benefits. My skin is brighter, my eyes are brighter, I have a lot more energy, and I feel so much thinner! I actually see muscles for the first time since high school. (I was on the swim team in high school and swam or worked with weights every day.) It’s hard to believe that I have only lost 10 pounds…it feels like so much more! 🙂
What Oxycise! has done to my life, you can’t put a price tag on
“This Oxycise! system has so many advantages. I didn’t need any fancy (expensive) equipment, I didn’t have to pay big bucks to belong to an organization, I didn’t have to buy any re-order portions, I didn’t have to deprive myself of delicious foods, and I didn’t have to leave home in bad weather to have a complete health-conscious workout. See, there is no excuse today not to look good. Anyone can be healthier and feel great about themselves if they only CHOOSE to make a commitment and invest the time in themselves.”
If my enthusiasm encourages anyone to try or stick with Oxycise!, I will be happy
If there were an award for the greatest contribution in physical fitness programs, Jill would win the prize. You have designed a program that EVERYONE can do regardless of their fitness level. You teach us the importance of breathing, and how to breathe. You teach us the positions that will strengthen our muscles and keep our joints flexible.
