IHHT cell training

A unique combination of hypoxic and hyperoxic stimuli allow the cell’s regeneration potential to be optimally controlled.

The hypoxic phase is the major impetus for the accelerated proliferation of new, healthy mitochondria. The CELLGYM health concept reprograms cell metabolism using interval hypoxic-hyperoxic therapy (IHHT), which is central to mitochondrial cell training. This destroys exhausted mitochondria and accelerates the proliferation of healthy mitochondria. During IHHT, controlled, therapeutic hypoxia (9–15% oxygen) and hyperoxia (36% oxygen) are implemented in intervals at normal air pressure.


Oxygen is inhaled in a relaxed position

In individually adjusted intervals, the user, who lies relaxed on a couch, inhales hypoxic (O₂-reduced) and hyperoxic (O₂-enriched) air through a respiratory mask. Because of the intelligent control of the O₂ in the breathable air, a pre-set arterial target value of the oxygen saturation (SpO₂) in the hypoxic phase is not undershot (safety cut off). During the application, the measurement data is displayed on the screen and continuously recorded for subsequent analysis and documentation. The short, controlled oxygen-depleted phase is particularly important: As a strong physiological stimulus for the body, it evokes the production of erythropoietin (EPO) growth hormones, Hsp70 (molecular chaperones), and cytoglobins. In the hyperoxic phase, not only is the cell offered a “hypoxic pause” but gene expression is also regulated. For example, over the gene switch NRF 2 cellular and organ detoxification systems are turned on. The cell is made more resistant to oxidative stress.
