Intermittent Hypoxic Therapy
Intermittent Hypoxic Therapy (IHT) helps reprogram mitochondrial cell metabolism thru sessions that manipulate the level of oxygen breathed by an individual in dynamic patterns.
Each cell in the human body (approx. 80 trillion cells) has its own mitochondria “power plant”. The molecule adenosine triphosphate (ATP) which is the chemical basis for all reactions and metabolic processes of the body is formed in the mitochondria and is the body’s energy currency that is so critical in sports. The harder the body is put at contribution or the older the body is, the more the balance between healthy and damaged mitochondria is disrupted. IHT therapy helps restore the production of cellular energy by facilitating the destruction of old or weakened mitochondria and the proliferation of new and healthy mitochondria thus ensuring that cells, specifically the mitochondria, operate with 100 percent efficiency. This helps protect from various diseases. It is widely published that many chronic and lifestyle diseases are associated with damaged mitochondria.
