Oxygen levels in the colon

Here is a link for an article written by a German doctor who discusses the dynamic life of the intestinal tract which is considered to be one of the most important organ systems in the body due to a number of factors including immunity.

The discussion centers around low oxygen levels that halt the production of beneficial e coli (bec) which is not to be confused with the pathogenic strain of e coli we hear about in the news.   BEC is the major probiotic in the gut that holds the other probiotics and enables their proliferation.  Low oxygen levels occur from  nutrient deficiency, lifestyles and infections that shift the gut environment.

The author proposes the idea of using medical-grade ozone or other oxygen therapies that bring oxygen into the intestinal environment through insufflation techniques.
