  • IHHT (Altitude training)

    MITOVIT® hypoxia training usually takes place in the practice in a relaxed situation while lying down.

    The application is perceived as pleasant and leads many to relax and fall asleep during it. In contrast to the altitude training of athletes, there is usually no sporting activity during hypoxia training. To mimic the stimuli of physical stress, MITOVIT® hypoxia training uses a more reduced oxygen concentration. As a rule, altitude training of athletes takes place at an altitude of about 2,000-5,000 meters, which corresponds to an atmospheric oxygen of about 16% – 12%.

    Take advantage of the positive effects and benefits of altitude training:

    • higher mitochondrial performance
    • strengthens the immune system
    • stress resistance provides balance in the vegetative nervous system
    • promotes concentration
    • increased protection against oxidative stress
    • stimulates fat metabolism (faster weight reduction)
    • good for cardiovascular system
    • shortens regeneration times

    IHHT and Borreliosis

    Studies have shown that hypoxia and hyperoxia can be used successfully in joint borreliosis.

    Borrelia, which retreat into bradytrophic tissue (slow metabolism) such as joints, are lured out by the hypoxia during IHHT. This means that the bacteria enter the bloodstream through short-term hypoxia (when the patient’s oxygen saturation falls below 90 %). Shortly afterwards, the IHHT switches very quickly to hyperoxia (over 30 % oxygen content) and the borrelia cannot escape the oxygen enrichment, which is fatal for them, quickly enough. The settings of the IHHT sessions are specially adapted to the Borrelia treatment. In the experience of many IHHT therapists, the symptoms decrease after 10 to 20 sessions (the exact number of sessions depends on the pathogen load). We are therefore delighted that we can now offer our patients this new procedure – and not just for Lyme disease treatment, of course.
