Are we suffocating our cells and consequently producing fatigue and pain in fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome?
In a study published in Arthritis Research & Therapy v.14(6); 2012, with a group of women with fibromyalgia, there was founded a connection with alterations in the microcirculation and oxygen metabolism in the muscles, suggesting that a lack or alteration in muscle oxygen could be the cause of FM, the oxygenation recovery after exercise was significantly longer than in the healthy group.
Many sleep in rooms poorly supplied with fresh air during the night. Any illness or disability from which they suffer can be made worse by poor oxygenation of tissues, and by rebreathing the wastes just excreted through the lungs. It has been discovered that low oxygen content of the blood and muscles may be a factor in the production of fibromyalgia syndrome. In an overnight sleep study of patients with fibromyalgia and healthy patients, the fibromyalgia patients had an oxygen saturation of 86.8 as compared to 90.7 in controls. It may be that part of the problem in fibromyalgia is low oxygen saturation in arterial blood.—American Journal of Medicine. 101:54-60;1996.
Let’s liberate our cells and breath pure, oxygenated air the whole day!
