More specifically, you want help with The Benefits of Intermittent Hypoxic Training (IHT)?

I’m back and today we’re going to talk about something actually very fascinating you may have never heard about this before but it’s called intermittent hypoxic training okay so we’re gonna talk about the benefits of intermittent hypoxic training or therapy all right what is this well it’s a training or therapy very similar to training in high altitudes you’re giving your body lower amounts of oxygen and this is the key term intermittently okay because if you cut down the oxygen too low too long it can be dangerous just like fasting is really good short term but not for two years so by giving your body a little doses of hypoxia a lack of oxygen you can create an amazing adaptation some of the videos I’ve done recently we’re about giving the body more oxygen right this is about taking the oxygen away a lot of the top athletes do this type of training to get the unfair advantage number two chronic lung diseases doing this training at the right intervals under supervision can increase your oxygen carrying capacity greatly number three bronchial asthma and by the way both of these right here would benefit greatly from vitamin D as well okay number four hypertension five diabetes number six brain damage let’s say for example you had Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s doing this training can cause your body to just carry more oxygen and feed the areas that are hypoxic number seven radiation toxicity number eight increasing of your antioxidant Network when you put your body in a hypoxic state it starts to rebound and starts creating antioxidants like crazy number nine it increases the number of mitochondria Wow number ten and actually I think this is the most amazing thing it will increase not only the number of red blood cells but the size of your red blood cells so you can carry more oxygen so you’re making super red blood cells this is amazing number 11 it helps release excessive amounts of calcium from the cell number 12 it’ll increase oxygen to your tissues is probably why it helps diabetes asthma and brain damage and number 13 it decreases oxidative stress all right so how do you do it you can get a device like this which is a little mask over your mouth right here where you can breathe and you probably can’t hear me but basically this restricts air and you can use different settings that will simulate different altitudes so maybe you start at 3,000 feet and you slowly go up to 19,000 feet and you’re mimicking the amount of oxygen at different altitudes and there’s other ways to do it too one way is like you’re on this bicycle and you’re breathing in less amount of oxygen and more nitrogen to create the same effect so one pattern might look like between three to five minutes of hypoxic air where you’re breathing more co2 and then two to five minutes of ambient normal air back and forth for let’s say 45 minutes and then what you can do is you can get a pulse oximeter they’re very inexpensive you can get them from Amazon and that’ll measure the amount of oxygen in your blood as your feedback mechanism now before I did hyperbaric my oxygen was 95 and now it’s a hundred but when you’re doing this training it’ll go down to 85 temporarily but then it goes right back up to where you were so this is just another tool that you can use to create a hormetic effect which basically you’re giving a small amount of stress and tremendous body to rebound and adapt and become even stronger alright thanks for watching so if you want more knowledge on how to create a healthy body subscribe now and get daily notifications

In this video, we’re going to talk about intermittent hypoxic training (IHT). 

What is intermittent hypoxic training? 
Intermittent hypoxic training is a training or therapy, very similar to training in high altitudes. You’re intermittently giving your body lower amounts of oxygen. If you cut down the oxygen too low for too long, it could be dangerous. 

By giving your body little doses of hypoxia, which is a lack of oxygen, you can create an amazing adaptation. You’re giving a small amount of stress intermittently to cause the body to rebound, adapt, and become even stronger. 

Intermittent hypoxic training benefits:

1. Improved performance 
2. May help with chronic lung disease 
3. May help with bronchial asthma 
4. May help with hypertension 
5. May help with diabetes 
6. May help with brain damage
7. May help with radiation toxicity
8. Increases your antioxidant network 
9. Increases the number of mitochondria 
10. May increase the number and size of red blood cells  
11. Helps release excessive amounts of calcium from the cell
12. Increases oxygen to the tissues 
13. Decreases oxidative stress

How to do intermittent hypoxic training:

• You can get intermittent hypoxic training equipment such as a small mask that fits over your nose and mouth. The mask restricts air and has different settings that will simulate different altitudes. You may start at 3,000 ft and slowly work your way up to 19,000 ft. 

• There is another way where you’re on a bicycle, and you’re breathing in a less amount of oxygen and more nitrogen. 

• One pattern might look like 3-5 minutes of hypoxic air, where you’re breathing more CO2. Then, 2-5 minutes of ambient air (normal air). You do this back and forth for about 45 minutes. 

• You can get a pulse oximeter, which will measure the amount of oxygen in your blood.
