Altitude Contrast Training - Extreme O2
- Do you feel like you need more energy?
- Do you want to lose weight?
- Do you feel like you have toxic build-up in your body?
- Do you have a chronic illness or infections?
- Is your mind not as sharp as you would like it to be?
- Have you suffered from a concussion, stroke or brain injury?
- Do you feel sluggish, burned-out, sore or over trained?
- Does altitude affect you or your performance?
- Would you like to be able to recover quickly from races or games?
- Would you like to have a greater aerobic capacity?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then Altitude Contrast Training (ACT) and/or Hyper Altitude Contrast Training (HACT) may be what you are looking for. Used by some of the world’s elite athletes and top clinics, ACT benefits include, but are not limited to:
- Very fast recovery
- Accelerated training
- Increased Aerobic Capacity (VO2 max)
- Altitude Conditioning
- Increased Red Blood Cells
- Increased Growth Hormone Levels
- Optimized Performance
- Helps to defend your body from stress
- Improvement in energy and a sense of well-being
- Aid in detoxification and clearing out of metabolic waste
- Up-regulate mitochondrial cellular respiration
- Increased oxygen to the brain and to all vital organs aiding in healing and function
How Altitude Contrast Training Works
Stress and strain triggers inflammation in your small blood vessels called capillaries. This results in lowered blood flow, reduced oxygen delivery and trapping of toxic metabolic waste. This keeps your muscles sore, weak and anaerobic, which will limit your performance.
When using the Altitude Contrast Training system, you are able to flush out the lactic acid that you build up when performing or overtraining. It restores oxygen and performance to the body. It helps erase the stress-triggered congestion that limits your blood flow, strength and endurance. ACT opens your whole vascular system, flushes waste, and restores metabolism. It also clears lactic acid soreness within a single session and erases the muscle brownouts that limit your performance.
This contrast in oxygen concentrations is one of the keys to healing throughout the body. Think of these shifts in oxygen like a “oxygen-pump,” pumping out toxins and pumping in life-giving oxygen. This results in thousands of genes to be either up or down regulated, leading to improved healing and increased cellular metabolism.
What People Experience from Altitude Contrast Training
After just one session
- Muscle soreness and lactic acid buildup is greatly reduced or eliminated
- Very fast recovery after strenuous exercise or overtraining
- Most experience an increase in energy and a clearer mind
With multiple sessions (2-3 per week), many have experienced these positive changes in as little as 4-6 weeks
- Increased metabolism and weight loss
- Decreased cravings of unhealthy foods
- Increased cardiovascular capacity
- Improved mood
- Clearer thinking and improved memory
- Able to handle stresses more easily
- Improved athletic performance
Hyper Altitude Contrast Training (HACT)
The contrast in oxygen concentrations that are experienced during an Altitude Contrast Training session are a powerful means to heal the body and increase performance; however, Hyper Altitude Contrast Training (HACT), takes this one step further. After completing your session with the ACT system, your oxygen concentrations can be increased hundreds fold by a session in a hyperbaric oxygen chamber. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is known as one of the best methods to improve overall health and heal most injuries in the body, including neurological injuries*. HBOT, when coupled with ACT, appears to provide even greater added benefits. Exclusive to Whole-Body Medicine, those who have experienced HACT (HBOT + ACT) have shown all the benefits of each individual therapy, but more quickly and more powerfully.
PEMF and BioCharger to Increase Healing, Detoxification, and Improvement in Energy
In order to further enhance ACT or HACT, we highly recommend use of Pulsed Electromagnetic Therapy (PEMF) and the Biocharger ™. Every cell and organ that is sick, injured, or underperforming, has a lowered voltage across its cell membrane. These amazing technologies help to increase the charge in the cells of your body.
