How You Can Use Hydrogen For Better Health

How You Can Use Hydrogen For Better Health

Hydrogen is so ubiquitous, abundant, and obvious that we hardly ever think of it as useful for health.

If you remember the days of chemistry, you’ll no doubt be reminded that hydrogen makes up almost all natural things. It is the lightest and most abundant substance in the universe, so you can see its importance.

You may not know that hydrogen is an incredibly potent antioxidant essential for maintaining cellular health and defending against free radicals.

This is why, in recent years, I’ve been excited to see an improvement in the number of available hydrogen therapies. There are numerous forms of hydrogen therapy, and in this article, I’ll explain a few of the more effective and accessible ones.

I don’t necessarily believe hydrogen therapy is something you should bend over backward to access. But I definitely think it can positively benefit someone who needs an extra edge in their quest for “Health As It Ought To Be.”

Hydrogen Therapies You Could Consider:

So, what are hydrogen therapies, really?

Well, let me give you a brief synopsis of what’s available currently:

1.  Hydrogen Inhalation Therapy:

Yes, you can inhale more hydrogen using hydrogen therapy inhalation devices. These devices typically involve inhaling hydrogen gas mixed with air or oxygen through a nasal mask. This method is believed to deliver hydrogen directly to the lungs and into the bloodstream, potentially reaching organs and tissues more effectively.

2. Hydrogen Water:

This therapy uses a hydrogen water machine to infuse water with molecular hydrogen, allowing individuals to drink hydrogen-rich water. This can give you hydration + hydrogen (which is H20). 

3. PrePackaged Hydrogen Water, tablets and sticks:

You can take another version of hydrogen water on the go for the same benefit. We offer hydrogen tablets for infusing water in the patient store.

4. Hydrogen Baths:

This therapy is well-known in the alternative health arena. In this method, people add hydrogen tablets to a bath to release hydrogen gas, which is absorbed through the skin. This form of therapy is believed to provide localized and systemic benefits.

5. Hydrogen Saline Injections:

This isn’t all that common and is generally reserved for clinical applications. In some experimental protocols and research settings, hydrogen-dissolved saline solutions are injected to target certain conditions. We don’t do this, but it’s worth a mention.

6.  Hydrogen Topical Applications:

These are new and not all that well-developed. Here, creams, lotions, or gels are infused with hydrogen and are meant to be applied directly to the skin for a boost.

 

I want to focus mostly on hydrogen water since it’s easy to make and consume.

I understand there’s a lot of hype around different kinds of water, and claiming hydrogen water could change your life may seem outlandish.

However, as water is crucial for normal cell function and tap water is notably low in antioxidants, particularly hydrogen, there is a strong case for using hydrogen water as a therapy.

We know hydrogen water is super helpful, thanks to a Japanese scientist team.

Their study, published in the journal Medical Gas Research, involved a rigorous, randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled trial to determine the effectiveness of hydrogen water. Participants who consumed low-dose hydrogen water, just 1.8 parts per million, twice daily for four weeks experienced substantial improvements in their quality of life.

The research revealed that hydrogen-rich water can remarkably decrease the activation of the sympathetic nervous system, which handles the body's fight-or-flight response.

Prolonged activation of the sympathetic nervous system can lead to elevated stress, excessive fatigue, inflammation, poor blood sugar control, weight gain, and a negative impact on mood.

The study found that hydrogen water reduced sympathetic response and helped restore the parasympathetic nervous system, which is responsible for bodily balance and relaxation. This compelling evidence led the researchers to conclude that hydrogen water could be an effective tool for promoting happiness and enhancing overall well-being, which is part of the reason why we carry it.

What’s fascinating is that when someone drinks hydrogen-infused water, trillions of hydrogen molecules surge through the body, delivering numerous health benefits.

These hydrogen molecules help protect cells, reduce oxidative stress, and regulate the nervous system.

Because it’s so small, it can travel freely throughout the body, making it highly effective as an antioxidant.

In fact, hydrogen's role as a potent antioxidant makes it highly effective against free radicals, particularly the harmful hydroxyl radical.

Its small size allows it to pass through all tissues, including the blood-brain barrier, efficiently neutralizing free radicals throughout the body. This is why hydrogen therapy has garnered significant attention for its ability to mitigate oxidative stress and its potential to treat numerous health issues, including inflammation and various age-related conditions.

When it comes to hydrogen water, there’s a lot it can do. It has been shown to: 

  • Decrease anxiety
  • Improve mood
  • Balance autonomic nerve function
  • Aid in Detoxification
  • Aid in Restoration of Youthfulness
  • Heal ulcers and sores
  • Strengthen and thicken hair
  • Improve blood pressure
  • Slow free radical damage
  • Enhance cholesterol levels
  • Aid with Better absorption of supplements
  • Improve allergies and asthma conditions
  • Improve blood circulation
  • Lower saturated fat levels
  • Reduce body fatigue
  • Speed recovery from diseases
  • Improve peripheral circulation
  • Reduce cellulite and wrinkles
  • Enhance memory in the elderly
  • Boost brain power
  • Reduce acidic conditions
  • Improve constipation and diarrhea conditions
  • Improve blood glucose levels

So what does that mean?

The benefits extend to various areas, including better blood circulation, reduced body fatigue, and improved disease recovery. In addition, there are numerous other health benefits, such as detoxification enhancement, which helps you feel younger, can aid in healing ulcers and sores, and may contribute to stronger and thicker hair. There have been documented improvements in blood pressure, enhanced cholesterol levels, and more effective supplement absorption, all of which could help maintain good health and improve quality of life. 

Our practice has integrated hydrogen therapies, such as hydrogen tablets, for creating hydrogen-infused water, and hydrogen gas inhalation, providing affordable access to these treatments for our patients.

You already saw what inhaling hydrogen can do in the list above, and it’s not all that different from hydrogen water. Other than that, you have to stay here at the office to finish a session.

We use a hydrogen gas generator filled with demineralized water, which splits H2O molecules into hydrogen and oxygen.

Patients who undergo hydrogen therapy typically start with a one-hour inhalation session twice weekly. After a few weeks, we perform a secondary free radical test to check their urine for MDA levels, a marker of oxidative stress. Most patients begin to notice improvements in energy and mental clarity and reduced oxidative stress symptoms, including lower MDA levels, within this period. 

Hydrogen therapy, especially through hydrogen-infused water, definitely offers a promising approach to combating oxidative stress and improving overall health.

By integrating hydrogen therapy into our practice, we aim to provide a natural, potent method for enhancing well-being and maintaining a balanced, healthy lifestyle.

Hydrogen therapy is an exciting development in health and wellness. It offers numerous benefits backed by scientific research.

Whether through hydrogen-infused water or hydrogen gas inhalation, this therapy can revolutionize how we approach health and disease prevention.
