Diabetic foot ulcers are a common diabetes complication. According to the study authors, about half of all diabetic foot ulcers become infected and then 20 to 30 percent of these cases lead to amputation. Once amputation occurs, survival past 5 years “is worse than most forms of cancer” and the cost of diabetic lower extremity care in the US is more than the five most costly cancers in the US alone.
Lack of oxygen in the blood creates an environment that bacteria, fungi etc. thrive in and can cause all kinds of complications.
If your circulation is not good then blood does not reach the extremities (feet) causing a shortage of oxygen, eventual cell death, numbness in the feet, swelling, water retention, inflammation, sores that do not heal, and feet that bruise easily.
Diabetes sufferers all hyperventilate, causing insufficient oxygen in the blood, which in turn makes them struggle even more, making everything much worse.
So, by adding extra bound-oxygen to the feet, it increases the oxygen where it is most needed. It also kills all the fungi, viruses, removing the dead cells and helping your foot to heal faster. By spraying on your feet before there are problems you may also prevent infections. This is normally done twice a day and spraying on top of the feet is sufficient.
What does Bound-Oxygen mean?
It is the opposite of free-radicals, the oxygen is bound to water with a vegetable sheath (bubble) making it even more bound. As oxygen is very small, this is easily absorbed into the skin, cleaning the skin, and then the excess oxygen gets absorbed into the blood.
The skin is a protective layer, so if the oxygen concentration is too strong then it does not absorb it but pushes it out. The best concentration to use is a 0.065% Bound Oxygen.
Lower extremity problems in diabetes
Along with a lifestyle change, monitored exercise and close watch by a physician, the additional use of bound oxygen therapy can help a great deal to prevent serious complications from diabetes.
For those who need bound oxygen therapy who also have diabetes, it might feel like you have a heavier load, especially if you were at a larger risk for developing sores, and if you have circulation problems. Using bound oxygen therapy will help over time, since additional oxygen will be distributed throughout the blood vessels of the body, and reach your extremities, where people with diabetes often have the most problems.
