VO2 Max: The underappreciated key to health and longevity

Print Friendly

vo2-max(NaturalHealth365) With 46.2 million Americans – a surprising one out of seven – currently over the age of 65, America is fast becoming a ‘gray nation.’  In fact, the U.S. Census Bureau predicts that in less than 50 years, those over 65 will account for a substantial 21.6 percent of the population.   Which is why understanding the link between VO2 Max and sickness is crucial in today’s society. (as you’ll soon see – below)

Does our destiny have to be a nursing home?  Unfortunately, for many people, the answer is yes – because they simply lack the proper knowledge about how to prevent (and eliminate) chronic disease.  On the next NaturalHealth365 Talk Hour, Jonathan Landsman talks about a topic (deeply personal) that is grossly underappreciated by most conventionally-trained physicians about how to avoid the negative effects of aging and premature death.

Does your doctor fully understand VO2 Max and the signs of poor mitochondrial function?

First, it is important to understand that aging is not just the accumulation of your chronological years. It is the deterioration that occurs, and it is linked with, decreased energy production within your body. Far from being just a ‘symptom’ of aging, decreased energy production is the actual cause of aging and the development of degenerative disease symptoms.

According to Dr. Shallenberger, there is a dramatic rise today in the rate and extent of people’s aging. And, he reports, it can be happening in your body long before symptoms show up.  However, with a system restored to optimal, youthful energy production abilities, you will be able to dramatically slow your body’s aging process.

The key to energy production within the body is directly connected to mitochondrial performance.  The mitochondria are thousands of miniscule, bubble-like cells – which convert oxygen to energy by burning fat, protein and sugar.  With bio-energy testing, also called VO2 Testing, Dr. Shallenberger has designed a computer program that evaluates your ability to produce energy and can predict your ‘future health.’

Do you know how well you use oxygen?

Dr. Shallenberger says, ‘there are two main causes for poor energy production:’ decreased fat metabolism and decreased mitochondrial efficiency. Although these can often be improved with a custom-tailored nutrition and exercise program, there’s much more that needs to be understood – on an individual level – to avoid the negative effects of aging and disease.

A safe therapy to improve your energy, fight disease and slow down the aging process

While an oxygen molecule contains two atoms of oxygen, ozone actually has three. But, far from being an artificial or foreign substance, ozone is naturally made inside your body – created by white blood cells as part of the immune response.

Interesting to note: The use of ozone to treat sickness dates back to Germany in the 1950’s, and thousands of German doctors use ‘ozone therapy’ today.  Over the last few decades, ozone therapy has begun to catch on in the United States, with healthcare providers using it to treat a wide range of chronic diseases including heart disease, diabetes, Lyme disease, hepatitis, herpes, chronic fatigue, macular degeneration and many forms of autoimmune disease.

Find out how to avoid the negative effects of aging and greatly improve your energy levels.  Don’t miss the next NaturalHealth365 Talk Hour with Jonathan Landsman as we offer a powerful message about how to protect your health.

    I am looking forward to this show. I don’t know how many people realize that the U.S. health care market by itself is a 3 trillion dollar product. This is a sum that is higher than Germany, the UK. and Switzerland combined expenditure.

    A large portion of it goes for chronic conditions, which is on the rise in the senior population. With all that money being spend we are no where near the healthiest people on the planet.

    All the above conditions are not even rare among younger people. There got to be something better to offer people and I am sure this show will help fill in the blanks.

  • Gregory Sterling

    In health as everything else the choice is yours. To choice wisely you need knowledge, which is why I am going to listen intently to the interview.

  • Mario Burke

    A recent study found no difference when people with chronic conditions were treated. Treatments came with side effects and the non-treated did just as good regardless of not being treated. We need this type of alternative method to get results without putting our health at risk.

    • Wendy Allen

      Ozone is awesome help and cheap. Celiac diet..no gluten/dairy/soy/sugar/GMO…taking vitamins/good oils/minerals..probiotic…detoxing may help brain/body health issues fast.

  • Bridget Barkley

    The fastest growing industries are processed food, pharmaceutical, GMO crops and technology. All with potential for enormous harm. It seems they are growing with warp speed. We need useful information to counter the trends.

  • Gordon

    I am looking for something with real possibilities that isn’t tied to conventional treatment. Staying out of a nursing home may not seem like a high enough pursuit, but if you ever visited one you will know it is.

    I don’t believe in being ruled by fear, but thinking about that type of aging takes me out of my comfort zone.

    • Wendy Allen

      The Celiac diet..no gluten/dairy/soy/sugar/GMO…taking vitamins/good oils/minerals..probiotic…detoxing may help brain/body health issues fast.

      EDTA/DMPS IV chelations may unclog blood vessels or Serrapeptase. Ozone is awesome for infections. Hair tests/Genova tests/Zyto scan/electrodermal testing is awesome help. Sunlight/Vit D3/exercise/good water/organic/nature etc…very good. Stress hurts…laughing helps and forgiving etc. Drugs/vaccines may hurt and not help. LDN may help block hidden gluten.

      There are many ways to help health. Prevention is easier than fixing health later.

  • Bee Meyers

    I am now feeling the affects of aging and feel ambushed by something unexpected. This can be truly terrifying if you don’t take care. I am not one to obsess over growing older, but at the same time it is hard to miss.

    My perspective is this show is an opportunity to fully embrace a way to keep vibrant and disease free.

  • Tessa

    I have a goal and that is to not grow old but grow strong. This looks like a plan for doing that.

  • Robert Paulsen

    If staying young in your old age is your goal they prime up on everything that helps you do that. The center for the Future of Aging at the Milken Institute reports that it is the aspiration to do our most enjoyable and important work, which helps make a healthy longevity.

    However, to do this means one must have enough vigor and this means staying physically healthy.

  • Wendy Allen

    Ozone helps Lyme/microorganisms go away and helps gums be more pink as it raises oxygen in the brain/body. Ozone may help more than hyperbaric chamber and is cheaper…less panic to do. Ozone benefits can be seen right away and may last 4 days, but help gradually restore health.

    Mitochondria being hurt by heavy metals/antibiotics/chemicals/inherit hurt mitochondria from the mom may cause MS along with Celiac. Low oxygen in the brain causes my MS. No gluten/dairy/soy/sugar/GMO…taking vitamins/good oils/minerals…probiotic…LDN..detoxing may help. Coenyzme Q10 (spark plug to the mitochondria)/carnitine/acetylcarnitine/coenyzmated B vitamins/zinc/fish oil/Mg/Vit C/probiotic and more may help.

    I am getting annoyed at people who are condescending to seniors. I think the only way to respond is to be tolerant and let them watch how strong, energetic and fit you look.
