I was wondering if taking in increased pure oxygen would benefit us
 
first of all there is ischemic colitis caused by lack of bloodflow= lack of oxygen
then the anemia also has the same effect
 
google tells me that hyperbaric oxygen therapy is supposed to work
this works by going into an enclosure pressurized to 2atms
if i remember my physics if the pressure increases the volume decreases- perhaps this allos oxygen molecules to get into tighter spaces? and the increased concentration of oxygen gives you more?
 
sounds like a good idea to me
pressure chamber costs about 16k
sessions cost about 125 if you can find them
 
thats too expensive for me but for the knowledgeable out there would going to an oxygen bar and inhaling without scents or purchasing canned oxygen provide any benefit for us?
 
i am going into nyc friday morning to get my visa and i need to kill some time. if i could get some information by then maybe some personal experience stories id really appreciate it.
 
thanks,
jay
 
 
by the way im really surprised that i havent heard of anyone trying oxygen before. i think when i go to india this winter i will experiment with sunlight oxygen and water, the fundamentals of life

did some research heres some stuff some of you who take ASA's and are rich may find interesting.. sorry to copy paste but the link goes to a journal you may not have access to so ill paste in the abstracts

Abstract The aim of this study was to assess the efficienchyperbaric oxygen alone and in combination with 5-aminosalicylic acid in THE acetic acidinduced colitis model, a well-known experimental model of inflammatory bowel disease in rats. Rats were randomly divided into FIVE groups. In the noncolitis control group, rats were given isotonic saline, while in the other groups rats were treated by intracolonic administration of 4% acetic acid. In group 2, the untreated control group, no additional therapy was applied. In groups 3, 4, and 5 hyperbaric oxygen, 5-aminosalicylic acid. and 5-aminosalicylic acid + hyperbaric oxygen therapies were applied, respectively. Administration of acetic acid caused an inflammatory response in all animals. Histopathologic score was significantly higher in group 2 than in any other group. 5-Aminosalicylic acid and hyperbaric oxygen significantly decreased the histopathologic score (P < 0.05). Myeloperoxidase activity was also reduced significantly by 5-aminosalicylic acid (P < 0.05) but not by hyperbaric oxygen. The most prominent ameliorative effect, however, was seen in group 5 and the histopathologic score and myeloperoxidase activity were significantly lower than in groups 3 (P < 0.05) and 4 (P < 0.001). Hydroxyproline level also increased significantly in group 5, but not in groups 3 and 4 (P < 0.001). These findings indicate that hyperbaric oxygen therapy is effective in reducing the extent of colitis induced by acetic acid, although it is not as potent as 5-aminosalicylic acid. The combination of hyperbaric oxygen and 5-aminosalicylic acid, however, led to a much more prominent reduction in the severitcolitis. Hyperbaric oxygen may have a promising place in the treatment of inflammatory bowel disease.

I haven't really researched it yet (will take a second look now that you post these articles, though), but isn't there a method of oxyginating or ionizing water that is used by some alternative type practitioners as a "cure all" for a bunch of remedies? I always assumed that any extra oxygen would simply get released in the stomach and never make it to the colon, however. Either way, interesting articles. Some sort of vascular disfunction (malfunction or abnormaility in the blood vessels to the colon tissue) does seem to be at play with UC, though whether it is a cause or effect or a little of both isn't clear yet.

Sara14- apparently they sell a can of oxygen in 7-11's across the country. it looks almost like a can of whipped cream, and is refrigerated.

Probioic- ever hear of rectal insouffilaton (spelling)- it is basically an enema of ozone and pure oxygen gas- another thing people swear by. it supposedly is able to stop growth of bad cells and organisms selectivleeley while promoting growth of th egood ones. http://www.digitalnaturopath.com/treat/T216561.html

tehre is a way to ozoneate water, i believe just blowing the gas through the water kills off anythig bad.

the worst thing about uc is that so many ideas make perfect sense, but in application nothing actaully works
