Q&A with Tom - Episode 3
Our third episode of Q&A is here! Here are the questions asked and any relevant links: Tom, do you think using the TBT (total body trainer) and incorporating my arms in the aerobic exercise will deliver more oxygen to those areas than having them in a resting position as I pedal with my legs?

How could the AC™ system be best used to support people's detox from the fires? Can you also speak to the nature of toxins from the fires that are burning hotter than wildfires (burning stuff like tires and metals and porcelain)? (Listen at 13:17 - 32:54) Adaptive Contrast™ system Detox protocol Blessed Herbs Quick Silver Scientific *Tom tip: best time for an herbal cleanse is Spring or Fall! How does LiveO2 Adaptive Contrast compare to Hyperbaric oxygen therapy? (Listen at 33:00 - 45:44) Read: LiveO2 vs. Hyperbaric I wanted to share something with you about using my LiveO2 system. I watched a podcast about nose breathing during exercise and I decided to try it while doing my LiveO2 workout. It took a while to get comfortable with it - I would sometimes exhale from the nose but got used to it.After a bit I noticed I felt remarkably relaxed even when the O2 levels were low. I felt relaxed after...normally I am little hyped up. When done, I decided to use my heart variability tester to verify how relaxed I was. It was amazing, I was completely balanced with my nervous system even after just exercising. Best session to date! Curious if you have tried it and had the same result? (Listen at 46:00 - 53:13) Buteyko breathing Wim Hof method *Tom tip: Our nose is there for a reason - to breathe! The mouth is designed more for eating. I haven’t used my Live02 the last month or two. And I noticed that the two times I used it this week that my pulse ox wasn’t going down that much when I was on -O2. It would maybe go down to 95 and then trickle back up to 97 even after a couple of minutes. Is that weird? (Listen at 53:15 - 1:00:09) Contact us about your protocol - maybe it's time to level-up?

From Not Being Able to Walk to Walking 2 Miles in a Day - Ben Menafee
Several years ago, Ben Menafee had a freak weightlifting accident, went into a coma, and woke up to a group of doctors telling him he probably wouldn’t be able to walk again. Today, Ben has a “motivational wheelchair” that he keeps in sight to remind him of where this journey started. He can now walk, on his own, 2 miles. Ben was told that “no gains could be made 12 months after a brain injury” and he’s made more documented gains in years 2 and 3 after his injury. “If you think you can do it, try it” In this podcast episode, we get to hear exactly how Ben was able to achieve those gains and: How he responded when doctors told him oxygen treatment was “snake oil” Why “limited mobility” LiveO2 users can still train equally to fully-mobile users What Ben does to keep his body guessing How to use LiveO2 systems if you’re claustrophobic Why Ben’s physical therapist now wants to try his system!

How Jeff Reversed His Declining Health and Saved $30K
Jeff’s results from his 50-year checkup with his doctor produced some disheartening results: Cholesterol levels up. Blood pressure up. And his neck pain had increased due to his numerous prior herniated disc surgeries.

That moment is when he decided to take his health into his own hands and become a participant in his health –- not a patient relying on prescription drugs. Fast-forward to today: Jeff feels no more pain, has incredibly increased his energy and stamina, and has eliminated his brain fog enabling him to pursue things he’s always wanted to like writing (check out his first book!) and music. In this podcast episode, Jeff gives us a first-hand account of how his oxygen training with his LiveO2 system, inversion therapy and ketogenic diet have played a part in his incredible transformation.
