Cellgym or IHHT (intermittent hypoxy-hyperoxy) therapy is an outstanding novel method to increase fitness and reduce susceptibility to illness at a cellular level. IHHT combats and reverses the damage by cleaning your cells, eliminating the old and damaged mitochondria and building new mitochondria.
That impact can prove profound: boosting energy, resilience and anti-ageing effects. If you're arching an eyebrow right now, it's important to point out that the Nobel Prize in Medicine 2019 was awarded for the research on how human cells adapt to changing oxygen levels.
IHHT is gentle, non-invasive and completely free of side effects. You lie completely relaxed on a couch. At individually adjustable intervals we supply your body with oxygen (hyperoxia) or remove oxygen (hypoxia) via a breathing mask. Normal oxygen concentration in the air we breathe is 21%. During the IHHT hypoxia phase, the oxygen concentration is reduced to between 9% and 15%. This phase usually lasts for 5 minutes. This is followed by a 3-minute hyperoxia phase, with an oxygen concentration of 34%. During the treatment your heartbeat and oxygen saturation is carefully monitored.
IHHT has indirect and direct beneficial effects in the context of exposition to the COVID-19. Besides the direct improvement to respiratory function, indirect metabolic and epigenetic effects may render the human body more resistant and resilient when exposed to a new aggressive virus. Additional protective effects of IHHT are the enhanced expression of CD8 lymphocytes and natural killer cells because recent studies have shown that severe Covid-19 infections show a lack of CD8 lymphocytes (Lancet 2020).
