Hydrogen Alleviates Pain
Hydrogen is vital to everything that goes on in our bodies. Very often we hear about oxygen therapies but hydrogen therapy is not well publicized. By weight, we are made of mostly oxygen which is 8 times heavier than hydrogen. By volume, however, hydrogen dominates 2 to1.
One of the well-known effects of molecular hydrogen (H2) is its ability to relieve pain due to its anti-inflammatory, anti-apoptotic (cell death) and anti-oxidant effects. Pain is not necessarily our enemy because it can tell us when there’s something wrong (if we didn’t already know). Of course none of us wants to be in pain, so here we briefly describe what pain is and how hydrogen helps.
Pain receptors are stimulated in the skin and tissues when painful stimuli are present. These receptors send signals into the spinal cord and eventually get to the sensory cortex of the brain – this is when the pain is felt.
2 Types of Pain: Acute pain is sudden, like when you stub your toe. Chronic pain is long term and in most cases, analgesics are used long term (problematic due to high rates of addiction). In acute pain, when the cause of pain is resolved signaling typically stops. When pain lasts more than 3 months it is considered chronic because sensory signaling doesn’t stop. This leads to a pathophysiological state of nervous system hyperactivity and the perception of pain becomes intensified.
Cytokines, NGF and pain
There are many biochemical mediators involved in acute and chronic pain. Cytokines are proteins produced by the cells of the immune system that regulate the body’s response to disease and infection. There are pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory cytokines that, in a healthy body, maintain a delicate balance. When this balance is interrupted as it is in chronic pain, this situation is called a “cytokine storm” (overreaction of the immune system. (Symptoms include fever, body aches and nausea, and stronger symptoms.)
NGF, or nerve growth factor found throughout the body, secondary to cytokines, also plays a major role in the amplification of pain signals. Clinically, NGF concentration is increased in chronic pain, conditions such as interstitial cystitis, prostatitis, arthritis, pancreatitis, chronic headaches, cancer pain, diabetic neuropathy, and non-cancer pain, suggesting that NGF signaling is an ongoing.
Enter: AquaCure Hydrogen Generator: Brown’s Gas (BG)
Yull Brown discovered a proprietary method of water electrolysis that created a non-explosive mixture of hydrogen and oxygen gas. Brown patented his ‘electrolyzer’ in 1977 and the technology has been used since to improve energy production/efficiency.
BG has characteristics that are unexplained, like it’s high energy but cool flame. Welders know that although BG has only 1/10th the BTU energy of acetylene, it will heat a tungsten rod faster.
Since 1996 there have been reports of BG use for health. Also known as hydroxyl, oxyhydrogen or HHO, Brown’s gas forms when an electric current is run through water resulting in the splitting of the water molecules, and allowing the hydrogen and oxygen to act independently of each other. The water, which becomes electrically expanded (ExW) absorbs electrons and expands to a gaseous state that is NOT steam or water vapor.
BG has been reported to reduce localized pain with great efficacy (e.g., carpal tunnel), as well as cure or greatly improve the following conditions:
allergic skin reactions
arthritis and arthralgia (joint pain)
diabetic peripheral neuropathy
eye problems including glaucoma and cataracts
gastritis and ulcers
headaches and migraines
muscle pain or myalgia
poor blood circulation
spinal disc problems
wounds and microbial infections/inflammations
From the Molecular Hydrogen Institute:
Molecular hydrogen is gaining significant attention from academic researchers, medical doctors, and physicians around the world for its recently reported therapeutic potential . One of the earliest publications on hydrogen as a medical gas was in 1975, by Dole and colleagues from Baylor University and Texas A&M . They reported in the journal Science that hyperbaric (8 atm) hydrogen therapy was effective at reducing melanoma tumors in mice. However, the interest in hydrogen therapy only recently began after 2007, when it was demonstrated that administration of hydrogen gas via inhalation (at levels below the flammability limit of 4.6%) or ingestion of an aqueous-solution containing dissolved hydrogen, could also exert therapeutic biological effects . These findings suggest hydrogen has immediate medical and clinical applications .
Although the research is early, the 1000+ scientific articles suggest that Hydrogen has therapeutic potential in over 170 different human and animal disease models, and essentially every organ of the human body.
Hydrogen reduces oxidative stress and improves redox homeostasis, partly mediated via the Nrf2 pathway, which regulates levels of glutathione, superoxide dismutase, catalase, etc. [powerful anti-oxidant].
Hydrogen, like other gaseous-signaling molecules, modulates signal transduction, protein phosphorylation and gene expression, which provides its anti-inflammatory, anti-allergy, and anti-apoptotic (cell death) protective effects.
There are numerous testimonials on how hydrogen could alleviate various chronic conditions, and could be the next best pain reliever with no known side effects at recommended doses.
