Lower Your Stress Hormones with Kinetic Oxygen

Preliminary Findings on the Importance of Kinetic Oxygen in Managing the Impact of Stress.

INTRODUCTION

‘Stress’ is an unavoidable phenomenon in our modern world. Although a certain degree of ‘stress’ is supposedly of benefit, for many individuals today, daily life is composed of ongoing stress, creating chronic negative impact, physically, mentally and emotionally.

Regular use of Kinetic Oxygen (also known as Singlet Oxygen Energy / SpiroVital Therapy / Activated Oxygen Therapy), has been shown (anecdotally) to improve stress responses in the body and have a calming effect on the nervous system. There have also been numerous (anecdotal) reports of improved immune function.

This report describes the findings of initial testing into the effect of Kinetic Oxygen on levels of Cortisol and sIgA in the body. See below for explanations as to why these physiological markers were chosen.

Cortisol is known as the ‘Stress Hormone’

Cortisol is known as the ‘stress hormone’. It is produced by the Adrenal Glands in response to signals from the brain. Although Cortisol has many actions within the body, it’s probably most well known for the effects known as the ‘fight or flight response’ caused by rising Cortisol levels in reaction to perceived stress. Ideally, once the ‘stressor’ has been removed, a feedback loop within the hormonal system will restore normal levels of Cortisol, to bring the body back into balance.

However, today’s chronic stress conditions commonly prevent that rebalancing and persistent elevated Cortisol levels result. i.e. chronic stress can produce high cortisol levels. The negative health effects of this are far-reaching. However, in addition to addressing the actual stressors in an individual’s life, interventions which naturally reduce Cortisol levels in the body can be of significant benefit in improving physical, mental and emotional experience.

Reducing high Cortisol levels in the body can benefit you physically, mentally and emotionally!

Secretory Immunoglobulin A (SIgA) is an antibody found in saliva, mucus, tears and other bodily secretions. It is an important component of immune defence, particularly protecting mucosal linings against attack from bacteria and other pathogens. SIgA has been found to be another relevant marker of stress. As part of the anti-inflammatory effects of cortisol, persistently high cortisol levels reduce production of sIgA, which reduces its immune protection effects. i.e. chronic stress causes lower sIgA levels. SIgA levels can be boosted by moderate exercise, certain probiotics and other lifestyle changes. However, persistent changes usually take several months.

METHODS:

We took saliva tests of Cortisol and sIgA from 6 test subjects (age range 17 years – 67 years, 3 male, 3 female). Each subject then undertook a 21 minute session of Kinetic Oxygen (using the unique intensifier delivery system of the Kinetic Oxygen machine).

Given what we know about how long it takes to see saliva levels change in response to an intervention, we then took a second sIgA reading straight after the Kinetic Oxygen session and a Cortisol level reading 30 minutes after the session.
Salivary samples were also taken from a control subject at the same time points (without administration of any Kinetic Oxygen) for comparison.

Soma BioScience oral fluid collctors were used for each sample and the results were tested using Soma Bioscience’s Lateral Flow Assays for Cortisol and sIgA.

CORTISOL RESULTS:

Impact of Kinetic Oxygen on salivary Cortisol levels

After just one session of Kinetic Oxygen, the body’s key Stress Hormone levels were substantially decreased!

sIgA (SECRETORY IgA) RESULTS:

Impact of Kinetic Oxygen on salivary sIgA levels

After a session of Kinetic Oxygen, sIgA, a key marker of the body’s immune system was significantly boosted!

KEY FINDINGS:

In all subjects, cortisol levels decreased after a session of KO. The mean decrease in cortisol was 42% (17% – 59%). This is significantly different from the control’s decrease in cortisol which was 9%.

After just one session of Kinetic Oxygen, the body’s key Stress Hormone levels were substantially decreased!

In all subjects, IgA levels increased significantly (76 – 371 ug/mL) immediately after a session of KO, and then began to normalise (in all but one of the test subjects). In the control subject there was also an increase in IgA (325ug/mL)

After a session of Kinetic Oxygen, a key marker of the body’s immune system was significantly boosted!

CONCLUSION:

These exciting preliminary findings reinforce previous studies (see references below) showing that Kinetic Oxygen (also known as Activated Oxygen Therapy / Spirovital Therapy) improves stress management within the body, reducing the negative effects of daily excessive stress. Moving forward we look forward to increasing the number of test subjects and examining the longer term effects of Kinetic Oxygen, to examine how Cortisol levels are impacted by regular sessions – with the current hypothesis that there is a cumulative stress-relief effect!
