Relief from Arthritis Symptoms
"Oxycise energizes me much more than all those "aerobic" classes did and it has also controlled my rheumatoid arthritis. I have not had a bad flare up since I have been Oxycising."
"I've been doing Oxycise! for a year now. The results I have received are:
1. Much more strength, especially in my arms.
2. Much more flexibility, especially in my hip joints, which had begun to bother me. And in my shoulders. At first I didn't want to do your exercises for shoulder strength, but I made myself do them as best as I could. I still don't have as much flexibility as I would like, i.e., when I was younger, but the improvement has been remarkable.
"Also, when I am waiting for my tapes to rewind, I do the neck flexibility exercises which a chiropractor gave me, which has helped tremendously with arthritis pains that had begun in my neck, and also in my right shoulder."
"Just a brief note to thank you for Oxycise! and weekly words of encouragement. I have been doing O! since January and love how it wakes me up in the morning. Last winter I went to the doctor for hip pain and found that I have sciatica. I have arthritis in my back and a degenerative disc which keeps my sciatic nerve inflamed.
"I am not walking as much as I did, but am not giving up on O! or Tai Chi. I still do both daily. I thought by not walking I would gain back the weight I have lost in the past two years. Not a chance! Thank you.
"My doctor gave a sheet of back exercises to do to help with the pain and build ab muscles, etc. I took one look at the sheet and when I realized that these were poses that were to be held for a count of six, I knew I would be able to do them using the Oxycise! breath for that count. I have lengthened the exercises to 15 reps and now do them daily for maintenance. I have kept the weight off and still feel great thanks to O! and Tai Chi (also an Oxygen based exercise).
"I just picked up the August issue of ALIVE magazine (Canadian Journal of Health and Nutrition) at the Health food store. There is an interesting article by Brad King, MS, MFS called "Build Muscle, Not Fat." And I quote: (Pages 32 and 33) 'Oxygenation: You're not in fat-burning mode if you can't carry on a conversation while exercising without gasping for your next breath. Gasping is an indication that there's insufficient oxygen being supplied to the tissues. Your body will switch gears and start burning glucose as its main fuel instead of fat. It takes an enormous amount of oxygen to burn dense fat molecules.' End quote.
"That's what O! does and does well. Thanks again."
"I now can walk, run and play with my grand kids without breathing heavy. It's great. I also had early signs of arthritis which seem to be going away. No more limited movement in my shoulders."
"The doctor said she feels that this is a good program for seeing that I have arthritis in my spine."
"I started this program because I had arthritis in my neck (pretty bad)... I still have arthritis but I now go days without any ibuprofen. I haven't had the strong pain killer for months.
"...My muscles don't cramp like they used to, and when they do, I find that the basic breath makes the cramp go away immediately. My arthritis doesn't bother me much, even with the spring weather..."
"I've been doing the level one Oxycise! plan for about 3 weeks. I have to tell you, I think that this plan is one that I may be able to continue for a very long time. I have spinal stenosis, arthritis, and now sciatic nerve problems. Other than eating right and doing mild walking, since I stopped smoking and gained 30 pounds, I have never found anything that creates little impact yet still lets me lose the weight and inches. This plan really does work. I'm terribly impressed."

"Since I have arthritis, running is out of the question, but Oxycise! is perfect because it is no impact, but still raises your metabolism for weight loss. I started out doing Oxycise! twice a day and had good results, and after 2 1/2 months, I still do it at least once a day because I like how it make me feel."
