Every year during this time of the year when the season is about to change flu activity begins to increase. While influenza viruses circulate year-round, most flu activity peaks between December and February, but activity can last as late as May. This time of the year is commonly referred to as “Viral” Season”. While everybody knows that it’s important to drink lots of fluids and get plenty of rest if you feel sick or run down, did you also know that gO2 therapy, 99% pure oxygen, can also help you feel better?
VIRAL SEASON, THE PANDEMIC, AND INDOOR AIR QUALITY
From the previous year, this viral season has become especially difficult due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Some people are experiencing cold and flu sickness and wearing masks for longer periods are making them feel worse. Did you know that indoor air quality can be much worse than outdoor air due to poor ventilation and airborne contaminants, especially in older buildings?
In addition to flu viruses, several other respiratory viruses also circulate during the viral season and can cause symptoms and illnesses similar to those seen with viral fever. These respiratory viruses include rhinovirus (one cause of the “common cold”) and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV), which is the most common cause of severe respiratory illness in young children as well as a leading cause of death from respiratory illness in those aged 65 years and older.
HOW gO2 therapy 99 % PURE OXYGEN CAN HELP?
In addition to proper diet and nutrition to strengthen your immune system during this viral season, you should also use gO2 therapy. Your body can become poorly oxygenated as it fights off a cold or fever. Your body needs oxygen so it can provide oxygen-rich blood cells to keep your tissues and organs healthy. Without proper oxygen, you can feel tired and your immune system weakens. Plus, the air we normally breathe contains only 21% oxygen – the majority is useless 78% nitrogen.
Using portable supplemental oxygen like gO2 therapy if you are sick from the fever or cold only makes sense because Oxygen is naturally anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory and supplemental oxygen can soothe inflamed airways resulting in easier breathing.
Even if you don’t get sick, you’re probably still going to spend a lot of time indoors during the pandemic wearing a protective mask at work, in public or at home. Everyone experiences wearing a facemask differently – most people aren’t bothered by it, while others can experience headaches or dizziness. Using portable supplemental oxygen can help provide a boost of pure oxygen to make u feel better when you feel uncomfortable after wearing a mask for a long time.
