The Science of Brain Health , The Care of Angels
Guardian Angel Homes has the finest Independent, Assisted Living, & Memory Care homes in the nation! We are one of the first in the industry to embrace a truly unique approach to Brain Health and Alzheimer’s & Dementia Care by incorporating The Enhance Protocol® into the care of every resident.
The Enhance Protocol® is currently offered at the Richland Washington location. It is coming to the Hermiston Oregon, Liberty Lake Washington, and Post Falls Idaho locations approximately October 2021.
The Enhance Protocol®: Exercise with Oxygen
Exercise with Oxygen Therapy uses a combination of oxygen mixtures to increase the natural physiological effects of exercise. It enables users to switch between oxygen rich and oxygen reduced air.
- Oxygen reduced air requires the cardiovascular system to work harder.
- Oxygen enriched air accelerates recovery.
Switching from maximal exertion with oxygen reduced air to oxygen enriched air creates a moment of simultaneous maximums of blood flow and blood oxygen concentration to create higher oxygen levels than are known possible by any other means!
We use the Live 02 for our Exercise with Oxygen Therapy. The Live 02 protocols can be effective in as little as 15 minutes!
Improved brain function secondary to use of Exercise with Oxygen is related to improved blood flow to the brain, lower risk of inflammation to sensitive neurons, and less oxidative stress. However, research also suggests that brain-derived neurotrophic factor, one of the essential chemical messengers that promotes neuron health, is increased during exercise as well.
Many researchers relate total health to vascular health, and vascular health can be compromised by inflammation, oxidation and exposure to toxins. Endothelial cells (cells that form the innermost lining of our blood vessels) are particularly sensitive to toxins, free radical stress, oxidative damage, and inflammation. When these endothelial cells become inflamed, infected, or compromised, swelling occurs, compromising blood flow to adjacent tissues. Exercise with Oxygen Therapy helps to increase the partial pressure of oxygen in the plasma. When this occurs, circulation improves, there is increased blood flow and oxygenation to distal body tissues, endothelial inflammation is reduced, and the body is better able to recover more quickly from physical stress and mobilize toxins.
Exercise with Oxygen can result in:
- Reduction of pain by 50-90%
- Increased energy and oxygenation to the body
- Improved immune system and reduced inflammation
- Improved physical performance and recovery speed
- Increased mental clarity and alertness
- Improved vascular health and blood pressure
