VO2 Max: The underappreciated key to health and longevity
(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.
