About This Blog
In this blog you will find out how some Chinese hospitals are using a mixture of Oxygen and Hydrogen to help defeat the Covid-19 virus in patients that are struggling with breathing. You will find out how Oxygen and Hydrogen work together, the H2 cleans the red blood cell, and then the Oxygen lands on the red blood cell.
First Our Own Experience With H2 and Covid
We have both had covid 19 , in January 2020, when we where in Mexico. At the time we did not know it was covid 19, and we thought it was just a normal cold, so the first 2 days of having it we just put up with it, like a normal cold, but the cough was intense and we would say it was the worst cough we have ever had. The interesting part, for us was on day 2 , we breathed in the hydrogen for 1 hour, and we could both feel a huge improvement straight away ,from struggling with breathing, and what seemed like constant coughing to a dramatic improvement by what felt like up to a 40 % improvement within 1 hour, by no means did this get rid of the virus for us, it took another 9 to 11 days to completely clear it, yet the hydrogen inhalation made it much easier to deal with. It felt like the hydrogen therapy supported our bodies and our immune system dealt with the virus.
Normally what we have found with hydrogen therapy is that hydrogen therapy is very gentle and many people do not notice any big wow moments of using hydrogen therapy. Yet with our own experience with covid 19, hearing from our own clients, and hearing from Chinese Doctors who have used hydrogen therapy on covid 19 the conclusion is that H2 Therapy can possibly ease the covid 19 considerable.
So back to our blog written by Duncan Lord McNair…..
H2 can be one of the keys in Defeating Covid19
Of particular importance is the emerging science of Molecular Hydrogen Therapy. Molecular Hydrogen is a medical gas, used in Chinese hospitals for sepsis and severe shock, and having very powerful anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. New research and clinical experience shows, it has a vital part to play in the current global crisis.
In recent years, following major breakthroughs in the treatment of viral infections, the Chinese have developed devices that deliver a combination of breathable hydrogen and oxygen. The scientific evidence reveals the potential for the treatment to act in 2 ways:
- Build immunity through an enhanced immune system
- Significantly reduce the moderate-severe symptoms to mild-unnoticeable symptoms
What is hydrogen?
Hydrogen is the smallest element, and the lightest. So why is this important? Because hydrogen is vital to countless biochemical reactions and interactions within the body. It can enter into the powerhouses of the cell, the mitochondria. There are hundreds of mitochondria in the cells, and up to 5,000 in heart cells. The cells work by receiving oxygen from the lungs and glucose from the digestion of food which they turn into energy for life and the carbon dioxide and water vapour which the lungs breathe out.
What is this energy? It is in the form of ATP (adenosine triphosphate). This is the only form in which the body can use energy and it is produced in the mitochondria of the cells.
Damaged Red Blood Cells
Hydrogen can undo the damage to the red blood cells that is caused by the COVID-19 virus. What COVID-19 does is it targets the red blood cells causing the iron in these cells to become a free radical.
When there is sufficient hydrogen in the body the hydrogen neutralises the iron free radicals, but most people are lacking the hydrogen needed to do this. In effect COVID-19 damages the red blood cells so that they cannot transport the oxygen needed by the body and that means the oxygen cannot get into the cells (similar to the effect of carbon monoxide poisoning). The word heme (US English) or haem (UK English), as in haemoglobin, is derived from Greek haima meaning “blood”.
What else does hydrogen do?
Hydrogen is the best anti-inflammatory and the best anti-oxidant. It targets the two most important free radicals found in the body. In a viral infection the body heats up and the cells become overloaded and die. Hydrogen eases this damage and gives the cells the chance to overcome the virus.
The main reason why hydrogen is so effective is its small size. It does not have to travel along veins and arteries but can directly reach, and energise the cells of your body including your heart and brain, if the blood supply is in jeopardy. It assists the mitochondria to function. A scientific study demonstrated that the membrane of cells is permeable to hydrogen which can protect mitochondria and the cell nucleus from acute oxidative stress.
Our health is inextricably linked to the numerous functions of our mitochondria. They are minute and each of your heart cells may have 5000 of them. Because hydrogen has no electrical charge it will enter the mitochondria and assist in the production of ATP. In simple language, the hydrogen molecules assist the mitochondria to do battle with hostile elements that have invaded the cell. A decline in your mitochondrial functioning throughout the body, and therefore in your level of ATP production, will make you age quicker and make you more prone to illness.
The hydrogen molecules assist with the flow of calcium in and out of a cell’s mitochondria which is very important for supporting healthy cells. Mitochondrial antiviral signalling protein (MAVS) plays a key role in the response to viral infections, helping to induce antiviral and anti-inflammatory response to infection.
By supporting the health of the mitochondria, the hydrogen molecules assist them to continue releasing proteins in response to cell stresses such as heat, infection, lack of oxygen, increased calcium and nutrient deprivation. Disturbances to this regulation are associated with the development of diseases such as cancer, and also tissue damage following a stroke. Hydrogen molecules are also involved in the transfer of mitochondria to blood stem cells in response to infection.
The current procedure using ventilators Currently, the treatment of choice for seriously ill COVID-19 patients is to put them on ventilators but, as the clinical experience is now showing, this may be doing more harm than good. The following YouTube video by a very concerned New York hospital doctor describes the negative results of using ventilators with COVID-19 patients.
Dr Cameron Kyle-Sidell MD a board-certified emergency medicine physician at Maimonides Medical Centre, Brooklyn New York has posted a devastating video in which he describes the damage to patients being caused by putting them on ventilators. Dr Kyle-Sidell says that patients need oxygen but not pressure. The ventilation treatment now being used for many of the hospitalised COVID-19 is not doing them any good — and may be doing them real harm. Dr. Kyle-Sidell says it became clear to him early in the process of treating COVID-19 patients that he was dealing with a new disease. But it was also clear that the treatment being employed does not fit the disease.
Coupled with that, according to this article in Business Insider, 80% of NYC’s corona virus patients who are put on ventilators ultimately die, and some doctors are trying to stop using them:
What is a cytokine storm ?
In viral infections, what is known as a “cytokine storm” leads to a combination of viral damage and massive immune response, causing further inflammation and resulting in a storm of oxidative stress and inflammatory overdrive, leading to widespread cell dysfunction and cell death. For an explanation of ‘cytokine storm’, please see this New Scientist article read more [Diseases such as covid-19 and influenza can be fatal due to an overreaction of the body’s immune system called a cytokine storm.] Hydrogen is possible the best selective antioxidant to deal to deal with a cytokine storm.

In this video you can hear a Chinese doctor talking about the effects of hydrogen therapy on covid 19 and you can see the patients response from the therapy.
What is interesting , is that a private Doctors who treated Dana White, has a protocol that seems to be very effective, in this video below Dana White shares his protocol that he used.
Where Can I Get A Hydrogen Machine ?
We have been suppling hydrogen machines in the UK and internationally for over 4 years now, well before this pandemic, as hydrogen therapy helps with so many other different health issues from asthma to chronic inflammation.
One question we get asked a lot is do your H2=E Hydrogen machines have a similar out put as the Chinese hospital of a mix of oxygen and hydrogen. The answer is yes we can get our machines set to produce 50% hydrogen and 50% oxygen, but once it is set this way it cannot be changed around to produce 100% hydrogen. The out put of our machines is around 450 to 600ml per minute so it is a relative small amount per minute, so if you half the amount for oxygen, your missing out on less hydrogen. Also consider the air we breath already contains 21% oxygen, so our question is unless you need extra oxygen which is already beneath your nose, their is no point in having the oxygen hydrogen mix, and our general recommendation is go with 100% hydrogen out put, as hydrogen in the air we breath is 0.000055% which is a fraction of a percent and its the hydrogen that has many of the therapeutic effects that people are missing.

The key point that stands out from this article from Duncan Lord McNair ,is that COVID-19 virus targets the Haemoglobin of our red blood cells. In doing this, it releases a toxic oxidative iron ion which can no longer bind to oxygen. Slowly our haemoglobin is saturated with the COVID-19 virus and not to the iron that bonds it to the oxygen to energise our body.
It has the same mechanism as carbon monoxide poisoning, in which CO is bound to the haemoglobin, making it unable to carry oxygen. In these cases, ventilators aren’t treating the root cause; as the patient’s lungs aren’t ‘tiring out’, they’re pumping just fine. The red blood cells simply just can’t carry what they are supposed to carry – our oxygen.
This blog, though the data is unsourced, and aligns with the scientific documents below in the sources, in this post it is suggesting that this is possibly, a very useful avenue for enquiry and piloting. Using hydrogen as a medical gas would seem to help address the covid 19 outbreak in the world, as it is showing it has helped Covid 19 patients in Chinese hospitals.
