Our CO2 therapy involves the use of carbon dioxide, which may be helpful for various purposes









CO2 Therapy

The importance of
2 in

CO2 is our basic stabilizing and shaping molecule.
Stress, shock, inflammation, ageing, and organ failure are, in important ways, respiratory problems.

The formation of carbon dioxide itself from organic materials has recently been demonstrated to provide the energy for synthesizing ATP. (Arch Microbiol 1998 Aug; 170(2): 69-77, “Energy conservation in the decarboxylation of dicarboxylic acids by fermenting bacteria,”Dimroth P,Schink B.)

Our basic anti-glycolytic factor is carbon dioxide, which can be quickly delivered to the glycolyzing areas, suppressing glycolysis and restoring oxidative energy production.

The absence of carbon dioxide bound to a protein is likely to have an effect on the protein’s structure and function, but the presence of a relatively large sugar molecule, in a site normally occupied by carbon dioxide, will have drastic effects on the protein, including tending to solubilize it, and to cause it to associate with its environment in other abnormal ways. In general, the presence or absence of carbon dioxide involves relatively quick and subtle changes in structure and function, analogous to the phosphorylation of proteins, but possibly competitive with it, while the presence and absence of sugars, as glycated or glycosylated proteins, tends to be relatively permanent and to require enzymes to restore the original state. Carbon dioxide’s regulatory effects have been studied in only a few enzymes and hormones, but there is enough evidence to show that its reactions with proteins and peptides constitute a major regulatory system. -Ray Peat PhD

Carbon dioxide, along with ATP (heat) and water, is the byproduct of cellular respiration (metabolism). Carbon dioxide produced from glucose oxidation (glucose + O2 and T3) causes haemoglobin to release oxygen into the cells (Bohr Effect). Thus, carbon dioxide is responsible for the oxygenation of tissues and organs.

If someone is in a low metabolic state, not consuming enough carb/sugar and/or is under stress, cellular respiration may not be as efficient, creating less CO2. Less CO2 means less O2 in the tissue/cells. At this point, cells become inefficient at producing energy (anaerobic glycolysis), which results in less energy and lactic acid production. Increases in lactic acid oppose CO2, restricting O2 from getting into the tissue. Less O2 decreases oxidative metabolism, producing even less CO2 and the cycle continues.

  • Essentially you need CO2 for O2 delivery AND you need O2 for CO2 delivery.

  • Adequate oxygen and/or CO2 are needed to restrain the production of lactic acid, which will restore optimal respiration.

  • "Carbon dioxide acts like an antioxidant in the body. CO2 can help with edema, migraines, brain edema, mountain sickness, osteoporosis, epilepsy, glaucoma, hyperactivity, inflammation, healing wombs and arthritis. Diabetes, cardiomyopathy, obesity, cancer, dementia, and psychosis are also likely to benefit." -Ray Peat PhD

  • Hyperventilation is defined as breathing enough to produce respiratory alkalosis from the loss of carbon dioxide. Lactic acid is produced in response to the alkalosis of hyperventilation.

Otto Warburg established that lactic acid production, even in the presence of oxygen, is a fundamental property of cancer.

Increasing carbon dioxide lowers the intracellular pH, as well as inhibiting lactic acid formation, and restoring the oxidation of glucose increases C02. Inhibiting carbonic anhydrase, to allow more C02 to stay in the cell, contributes to intracellular acidification, and by systemically increasing carbon dioxide this inhibition has a broad range of protective anti-excitatory effects.

If we neglect the coherent interactions of these essential properties of the organism, our attempts to prevent or cure sickness will fail.

The shift to a reductive, glucose-wasting metabolism in the presence of oxygen is what Otto Warburg called the cancer metabolism. It's also the metabolism of an ailing brain, failing lungs and heart, and it parallels the metabolisms of aging and reproduction.

  • Recognizing that the ratio of lactate to pyruvate in the body fluids affects the redox balance of every cell in the body, and that this balance affects in a highly systematic way the metabolism and structure of all parts of the body, the value of knowing more about lactate is evident. - Ray Peat (PhD)

  • They consistently neglect to think of CO2’s influence on everything in every cell, not just on haemoglobin. The organism is reorganized when there is less oxygen to displace CO2 from the proteins to which it is adsorbed. The principle of induction, central to Ling’s view of cell structure and function, is something every student hears about early in the study of chemistry: the transmission of the electron-withdrawing properties of various atoms and groups through connected atoms. Carbon dioxide, a Lewis acid, strongly withdraws electrons from the proteins on which it is adsorbed, increasing their acidity. This affects properties such as contraction and nerve activation, as well as oxygen binding and enzyme action.--Ray Peat PhD.

  • COVID-19 symptoms mirror altitude sickness, suggesting that raising CO2 would be beneficial in this situation (1)

  • Excess oxygen administration increases mortality and worsens outcomes following cardiac arrest, traumatic brain injury, and strokes (123)

  • One of the pioneers in carbon dioxide therapy (CDT), Dr Albert LaVerne describes the benefits of breathing co2″

  • Patients appear to become rejuvenated in physiological, psychological, mental and emotional areas. The central nervous system, vascular, endocrine, and stress systems (pituitary-adrenal) become more efficient and productive. The repetitive use of CDT seems to enhance total body health. It slows down catabolic processes and builds up anabolic processes of metabolism. In effect, CDT deters the ageing process and encourages longevity. These observations and conclusions are based on numerous patients treated with CDT.

  • The CO2 also can fill in and correct what’s missing in the Krebs Cycle or the tricarboxylic acid cycle. It’s replenishing the catalytic effect of the fuel that keeps the oxygen process going.

  • CO2 also directly intervenes in the inhibition of lactic acid production. So, just by increasing the CO2, breathing in a bag, for example, for a minute or so at a time several times a day will lower your serum lactic acid.
