Recovery from Surgery
Clear lungs following Surgery
"I started using Oxycise! in October and really enjoyed it. In February I got very ill and had to have surgery. In March I had surgery and thanks to Oxycise! I was able to come out of the surgery with clear lungs and no problem of having to cough to keep my lungs from getting pneumonia which is common after surgery.
"...the doctor said I had the clearest lungs she has ever heard on anyone having surgery. She asked what I was doing and I told her."
"I wasn't able to do the full Oxycise! but I have done the breathing only and I have lost 15 pounds since my surgery. I went in for my checkup Monday and the doctor said I can start doing the exercises to go with it. I am so happy for I missed not doing it but just doing the deep breathing has helped get the weight off.
"I tell anyone who listens to me about Oxycise! I use it when I do dishes, in the car, sitting at the computer, any time I feel I need to relax, and before I go to sleep several breaths help me relax and sleep."
Recovery after Cancer Surgery
"Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoy the program and how great it makes me feel! I've only been doing it for a few weeks, but amazingly, I already feel the difference in energy levels, the way my clothes fit, and just a general pleasant sense of well-being. It's truly astonishing that something so simple can have such a huge impact. Jill - you're a genius!
"As a cancer survivor, I had lost some mobility in my right arm after surgery. I also experienced some post-surgical swelling in the arm. I've been to physical therapy for extended periods and that certainly helped somewhat. However, I've noticed that since I've been doing Oxycise! stretching and breathing, my flexibility and even strength seems to be improving more rapidly than ever. I can't tell you how much that means!
"Thanks so much for the wonderful program and keep up the great work - a day without Oxycise! is like a day without, well, oxygen! I can't thank you enough!"
Update from Renee:
Just wanted to thank you for your great weekly newsletter - it's really such a positive boost! I had a regularly scheduled check-up last week with my doctor (as all cancer survivors do), and all seems to be going great! I wasn't really trying, but I've lost 8 pounds since my last check-up in August, and of course, I had to tell him all about Oxycise! and the wonderful things it's brought into my life. He was so impressed with my newfound muscles, he even wrote everything down.
"My flexibility continues to improve on a weekly basis, and I know it's because of Oxycise! Nothing else has had such a profound, positive impact on my overall well-being. Even intensive physical therapy sessions didn't help me this much. It's truly amazing how something so straightforward and simple could make such an enormous difference. I find myself doing the basic breath throughout the day when I think of it, and I find it helps me keep my energy up and thoughts positive. I've also incorporated it into other types of exercise such as riding my bike or walking on the treadmill with great results.
"Thanks so much for everything that you and Jill do. Wishing you and yours the blessings of this holiday season now and throughout the year!"
"Dear Jill -
Just wanted to take a moment to wish you a lovely Valentine's Day. Thank you so much for all your hard work - I find myself eagerly looking forward to Oxychat almost as much as I enjoy doing Oxycise! itself. You ladies are bringing not only health, but great joy and encouragement to so many folks - you need to know how much you are appreciated.
"As a regular part of being a cancer survivor, I had a CT scan last week - all continues to go great! In fact, I don't have to go back for five months! After going to the doctor on a weekly (at least) basis for so long, that's like being fired as a patient - hooray! My blood work is better than it's ever been, and as he did last time, my oncologist busily wrote down everything I told him about my O! exercise program. My strength and flexibility continue to increase - this is truly an awesome program you've created. I also lost another 3 pounds without doing anything different.
"I've exercised all my life - whether it was ballet, gymnastics, running, cycling, the treadmill, etc. and have always enjoyed it immensely. But to tell you the truth, nothing has brought me the sheer exhilaration I feel after doing Oxycise! I truly look forward to doing Oxycise! several times every day and feel incredible afterwards. You have changed my life - not only strength and flexibility-wise, but my skin has never been softer. I've had several people tell me that I'm 'glowing' - if you can do that after cancer, something awfully good must be going on. I attribute it to Oxycise! and the wonderful changes it's brought.
"Have a wonderful day, and thanks for the joy and support! You ladies rock!"
Renee adds in a separate message:
"Your program has made such a positive difference to me, and others have noticed it too! Having watched lots of cancer patients now over the years, it's pretty clear that some never get it back together; others (like Lance Armstrong who was diagnosed at the same cancer center where I was treated here in Austin) seem to take the "extra innings" and run with them. The one common thread that I've seen with the second type of survivor is physical activity - whatever it may be. I know that, for me, Oxycise! has been that difference - I can see it and feel it every day.
"Again, have a great day and keep up the wonderful work! You are awesome."
Fast Healing after Abdominal Surgery, Gum Surgery
"I have been doing Oxycise! for almost a year now. I started last January after having abdominal surgery. I ordered my tape from a newspaper ad out of curiosity and thought it looked like something I could ease back into as my incision healed. At first I did it very gently but with deep breaths. I enjoyed it immediately. My surgeon commented several times on how well and quickly I was healing and I was surprised, as that has not been the case in the past. Quite the opposite, actually, whether it was a scrape or burn or a cold/virus. I continued with Oxycise!, ordering more tapes and working harder as I got back to normal. Over the months I have lost 44 pounds and have been so happy with Oxycise! that it's my only exercise regimen. I especially like the buns/thighs and abs/arms tapes.
"Last March I had gum grafting surgery. (I had done one of these surgeries before and knew what to expect. They would remove tissue from two long incisions in the roof of my mouth and graft that material onto my gums. A hereditary condition was making them recede even though I am only 40!) I had 32 stitches in my mouth and (like the first time) the stitches were supposed to come out after 10 days. After only 5 days I had to call my dentist because some of my stitches were loose and hanging down in my mouth. When he checked me out, he was astounded at how fast my mouth had already healed AND he went ahead and removed the rest of the 32 stitches as my wounds had already closed! Like my other doctor, he made several remarks about how well and quickly my tissues healed. Since this had not at all been the case with my first gum graft, I'm certain it's from Oxycise!..."
"I was up for a late night feeding with my newborn daughter being depressed about the 50 pounds I had gained during my pregnancy, when I saw an Oxycise! infomercial and knew right away that Oxycise! was exactly what I had been praying for. I became so excited at the prospect of a health program I could participate in, and still be able to "function" taking care of a newborn! (Let's face it..... you don't have time to go to a gym and workout, much less shower, when you're a New Mom!) I had concerns about strenuous exercise, considering I was recovering from a C-Section delivery. But, Oxycise! has been the perfect exercise program for me! Oxycise! has helped me to strengthen my ab muscles again, and sped up my recovery from the surgery! I loved the fact that I could Oxycise! while my baby napped, and not need to shower afterwards!
People want to know if Oxycise! brings results...... well I have lost 20 pounds and 8 inches in 2 months! Amazing! And I'm not finished yet! I want to continue to lose the other 30 pounds I gained with my daughter and feel so excited to have the tool to achieve this goal! Thank you Jill Johnson for creating Oxycise!, a program that instills hope and anticipation of the future!
Complications following Surgery
"I wanted to share what Oxycise! has done for me.
"Last year I had a complicated pregnancy which resulted in surgery, a miscarriage and a D&C. The doctors told me not to try and get pregnant for at least 2 normal cycles - which would have been fine if my body had got back into its rhythm and my period re-commenced - which it did not.
"Eight months later I was still waiting for my periods to recommence and was on the verge of having further ultra-sounds etc to see what had gone wrong with my system.
"Around this time my husband and I got the Oxycise! video programmes and started the exercises. Within 2 weeks my body was back on line and has been normal ever since.
"I am convinced that the Oxycise! programme 'kick started' my metabolism and got me back into it's proper rhythym. I cannot come up with any other explanation for it other than the Oxycise!
"So thank you very much Jill Johnson."
"I tried Oxycise! when I had surgery on my feet and I couldn't jog. My face is toning so much and I've lost 6 pounds in two weeks."

"Six weeks ago I had a hysterectomy. That is such major surgery and I felt as low as it goes. My doctor kept telling me I had to breathe to get my fever down and to heal. So I thought why not order the tapes. They came in a hurry and I have been doing them every day. Today I even did the new Leg and Bun tape.
"At two weeks after surgery my doctor was amazed at my progress. I was driving, cooking, walking on the beach and doing my oxycise. He said he had never seen someone recover from a 6 hour surgery like that. I am sure it was the breathing and movement of your tapes. I couldn't do a few moves and still can't, but the ones I couldn't do I just breathed through. I am going to keep doing it for life..."
Thank you so much....

"I just had shoulder surgery 3 weeks ago. I started a few Basic Breaths every day, every time I thought of it. I have been to physical therapy for the last 2 weeks. Also I have begun Level 1 which I modify to do no shoulder involvement. My Therapist today told me she can't believe how fast the strength has come back in my arm and what great range of motion I have back. Could it be the Oxygen? I think it has helped me a lot. Thanks!
