Common oxygen deficiency can be corrected by creating habits to your daily life that increase oxygen naturally. You can find them explained further in the slide show “Free Ways To Increase Your Oxygen Level“.
Oxygen is the worlds most basic fuel! Most people who have common oxygen deficiency because of several factors including:
In this six part series we are looking at each of these in more detail. Today’s topic is oxygen and stagnant air in your house.
Oxygen is primary for all aspects of the health of our body and mind. Here are just a few of the many miraculous accomplishments oxygen does for you…
Oxygen purifies your blood streams so that harmful waste can be effectively oxidize and then flush out our your system. In other words, it detoxifies and purifies your body… sort of like laundry being hung on a outdoor clothes dryer in the sun to “air out”.
When your body has extra oxygen it will help encourage quicker recovery times from strenuous exercise, injury, and even stress. When our system has a full supply of oxygen then our energy level dramatically increases. With enough available oxygen we feel calmer, we can think more clearly, we find our ability to concentrate is greater, and in general we will feel more alert.
One common contributing factor to common oxygen deficiency is the stagnant, over-used air in our homes. Our modern homes can be highly insulated and have energy-efficient windows and doors made to keep out the elements. This locking out of the outside heat and cold also has the added detriment of stopping the flow of fresh air from cleansing your home.
Additionally, if you are living a predominantly sedentary lifestyle then you are probably not going in and out of the house very often. Just the act of opening the doors to exit and enter lets fresh air in.
So what do you do? Well there are two things that are simple and can have excellent effects on reversing stagnant air in your home.
Opening doors and windows for 5 minutes may cost a little bit in terms of having to re-cool or re-heat the air, but because this is not enough time to rob the heat/cool from your furniture, walls, floors and furnishings, the cost to reheat only the air is minimal. Just choose a time during the day with the mildest temperature and the little bit of energy cost will pay for itself all day long in feeding your body fresh oxygen.
Plants are excellent air cleaners. Plants “breath in” carbon dioxide which the waste gas we breath out with every breath we take. Our bodies need to remove this waste gas often because when we have too much taking up room in our red blood cells there is little room left for them to transport oxygen. Plants are just the opposite. The need carbon dioxide to live. And plants “exhale” oxygen. We have a natural and necessary symbiotic relationship with plants.
A NASA Study House Plants Clean Air found these to be the top 10 plants most effective in removing: Formaldehyde, Benzene, and Carbon Monoxide from the air
So, add an English Ivy to a stand next to a window, or put a fern on your desk with a grow-bulb in your lamp. You’ll feel better for it.
