If you want your level of health and vitality to SOAR higher than ever before, you've come to the right place. You will learn how H2 therapy by Vital Reaction®will help you... lose weight more easily; improve your digestion; look and feel years younger than your age; have energy to spare; exercise with more endurance; assuage bodily aches and pains; curb your carb cravings, sleep like a baby; improve brain function; and SO much more.

For decades, I have been traveling throughout North America and around the world giving motivation talks and doing consultations on aspects of holistic health with people from all walks of life — from doctors and dentists, to corporate and business individuals, to working moms, and even teens and children — about high-level wellness and how we must all become the CEO of our body and personal health programs. Taking back responsibility for our own health and letting go of all our excuses of why vibrant health is beyond our reach is the first step in achieving enduring radiant health and youthful vitality at any age.

Dr. Susan's 3 Favorite Healthy Living Products:

There are three health products that are most important in my life and are always front and center in my healthy living program. These three together have helped to give me, and countless other people I know, vibrant health year-round. I never get colds or the flu or any other sickness and I have no acute or chronic diseases. It's the same with my clients, family and friends who have incorporated these three products into their health programs. So I can't recommend these three highly enough to you. The first two (Infrared Sauna and Ionizer Plus Alkaline Water) I have been using for decades and the third one (Vital Reaction® Molecular Hydrogen 7% Inhaler an Tablets dissolved in water or juice) not quite as long but the results have been nothing short of astonishing.

You can read more about these three products on many pages of this website. In the site search, put in these words above and all of the pages with more comprehensive information will pop up for you. In the meantime on this page, I will give you a succinct summary of Molecular Hydrogen and it's benefits for the whole body and then provide some scientific study summaries for you to peruse to support the efficacy of Hydrogen.

Hydrogen (H) is the lightest and simplest element. Molecular hydrogen is the primary form in which hydrogen is found. Research on molecular hydrogen has more than 1,200 peer-reviewed articles, with more compelling research happening every day. These publications demonstrate hydrogen to have therapeutic potential in essentially every organ and cell in the human body and in 170 different disease models.

H2 is the most powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory ever identified. It will fast track you to high-level wellness and youthful vitality.

You don't need a prescription to take the H2 tablets or use the Inhaler. It's also all natural, non-habit forming, no risk of overdose, and has no side effects. It is that miraculous and effective for all ages — from babies through the elderly, and it's also beneficial for our furry friends — cats and dogs.

I use the Inhaler every single day in my home or office and I also take the tablets daily. When I'm traveling, the convenient tablets go with me everywhere in the world. The powerful Inhaler is easy to use and some of my favorite times are when I'm working at my desk, reading, catching up on emails, upon awakening and going to sleep at night, and really any time you have a few minutes. Since I give talks about Molecular Hydrogen Therapy, I often get may questions that are addressed in the other pages on this website. But here is one question I get frequently.

Frequently Asked Question:

If there is Hydrogen in all foods and lots in water (H2O), why should I take Molecular Hydrogen tablets or inhale it? Can’t I simply drink more water to get more hydrogen into my body?

Yes, hydrogen is everywhere...literally. The Astronomer Harlow Shapley said, "If God did create the world by a word, the word would have been hydrogen." It's the most abundant element in the universe, found in foods, water, and produced naturally in our intestines during digestion.

However, the concentration level is key when using hydrogen as an effective and therapeutic antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent. The levels of hydrogen ingested with food and water are not enough to mitigate the free radical damage we're living with in this day and age. Nowhere near enough! That's why disease is running rampant and our healthcare costs are through the roof. Vitamin C and other antioxidants are still useful, but higher concentrations of hydrogen do much more to quickly counteract cellular damage. And again, you just can't get those higher levels without taking tablets or by inhalation. H2 therapy really works!

Still unsure? It seems too good to be true when the potential is powerful enough to change the face of medicine, But don’t take my word for it. Read the studies on my website under Favorite Products and use my Search Bar and put in “Molecular Hydrogen.” One Inhaler session is the equivalent of taking 65 tablets! That's how much more concentrated the Inhalers are and why they work so much better for anyone dealing with a chronic issue. I don't ever want to have a chronic disease so as a preventative measure, I use the 7% Inhaler as much as possible every day (along with Tablets) unless I am flying somewhere, in which case I always take the Tablets with me.  So, I use both forms in my home and office and always take the convenient tablets with me when I travel. So can you! Remember, you cannot overdose on the hydrogen. The more H2you take in through inhalation or tablets dissolved in water or juice, the healthier you will become.

Study Summaries for Many Common Health Concerns

• ORAL CARE FOR DENTAL DISEASES: If you have ever had tooth pain or any dental diseases, you know it's not a walk in the park. In fact, it can be some of the most excruciating pains you ever experience. I know about this firsthand. Yes, indeed, this is an efficacious use of Molecular Hydrogen — as an effective oral rinse and also using the Inhaler, and I wouldn't be without either of them. The tablets are always front and center in my home; I keep the bottle out on my kitchen counter to access often and I use the Inhaler daily except when I am flying somewhere, in which case I always take the tablets with me everywhere.


• HEALTHY, YOUTHFUL SKIN AT ANY AGE: If you haven’t heard the latest anti-aging buzz word “telomeres,” you soon will. Telomeres work as protective agents to our DNA strands and are directly related to the aging process. The longer the telomere strands, the more cells are protected and encouraged to regenerate - the shorter the strands, the lesser the protection and regeneration leading to accelerated aging. Unfortunately, telomeres are highly susceptible to oxidative stress and nasty free radicals, which contribute to shorter strands. In a study focused on the role of telomeres in relation to the skin, it was discovered that telomeres are crucial in the “maintenance of skin cell function and proliferation” and can directly affect the health and aging of skin cells. (1) Luckily, recent hydrogen studies are showing dramatic benefits with regard to increasing telomere activity and protection against deterioration, and these outcomes can be gained from both inhalation and drinking hydrogen water. (2)  Additionally, hydrogen can be beneficial to other biomarkers such as metabolism, longevity, and other aging indicators. (2)



• ANTI-AGING: The Free Radical Theory of Aging holds that the damage free radicals do to our cells, particularly the oxidative stress that free radicals cause, is what provokes our bodies to age; therefore, it’s very important to limit the impact of oxidative stress. Molecular hydrogen has been proven to mitigate oxidative stress at the mitochondrial level – the area most affected by free radicals and the area where disease and aging begin in the body. And since the only by-product of hydrogen is water, you’re regaining hydration as the worst free radicals are kept at bay.(1) Additionally, studies show a dramatic preventive benefit of hydrogen on the body as well, so you’re never too young or too old to begin the therapy.(2)



• MORE ENERGY & LESS FATIGUE: We all want more energy, right? Well, here’s some good news. Studies are showing promising results related to how molecular hydrogen can help to increase human stamina, and this outcome is getting attention in the sports and fitness industries. In these studies, hydrogen has been shown to “increase muscular performance and decrease fatigue” during exercise and offers more overall energy reserves due to the cellular rehydration effect it produces as a by-product of free radical mitigation.(1)It has even been proven to decrease recovery time for injuries because of its anti-inflammatory properties.(2) So, what are you waiting for? Get hydrogen, and get moving!



• ALLERGIES & SEASONAL DISCOMFORT:  Allergies, seasonal or otherwise, are terrible and can ruin your day. Fortunately, molecular hydrogen has excellent therapeutic benefits on allergy conditions and allergic reactions. While hydrogen is well known for its free radical mitigation, it offers another benefit in relation to allergies. Hydrogen changes the modulation of certain cell signaling pathways during an allergic reaction, which weakens or stops the attack. (1) Who knew those wonderfully effervescent hydro tabs had even more wellness-inducing secret weapons in their arsenal?

(I didn’t cite this study, but it’s related.)

• NORMALIZING BLOOD PRESSURE: Blood pressure can slowly creep up as we get older, which can lead to artery damage and other dangerous conditions. Medicines are effective but come with harsh side effects. Molecular hydrogen has been shown to normalize blood pressure and dramatically suppress associated inflammation. In a 2013 six-month study, subjects with high blood pressure were given regular hydrogen therapy, and the results were amazing. Not only did their blood pressures generally decrease, some were back down to normal levels. (1) The scientists believe these results were due to hydrogen’s anti-inflammatory properties, which by default can lower white blood cell activity. And by decreasing blood pressure, hydrogen is also protecting against pulmonary hypertension. (2) It’s a win-win!

• HEALTHY DIGESTION: Since the digestive system comes into direct contact with a wide variety of foreign elements that can be beneficial or not based on lifestyle, oxidative stress is an on-going battle and has proven to be the main source of stomach and digestive diseases. (1) However, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agents are proving to be quite gastro-protective in nature. (1) Enter, MOLECULAR HYDROGEN. With its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and lack of negative side effects, hydrogen is the perfect option to prevent or fight existing oxidative stress in the gut. Hydrogen has been shown to improve conditions such as liver injury, cirrhosis, hepatotoxicity, pancreatitis, fatty liver disease, intestinal contractile dysfunction, colonic mucosal damage, stress-associated gastric mucosa damage, and more. (2) If unhealthy choices have created a digestive issue, hydrogen can offer dramatic therapeutic advantages.


• BRAIN SUPPORT: People often joke about getting older and forgetful, but it’s not a laughing matter. A hit-or-miss memory and issues such as brain fog can really put you off your game, and as usual, oxidative stress is the culprit. Molecular hydrogen is proven to improve memory and cognitive function by alleviating the damage caused by oxidative stress, but its effects go much farther than that. Diseases and conditions such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, TBI (traumatic brain injury), hemorrhagic stroke, and ischemic brain injury are all positively affected by hydrogen therapy. (1)  And as previously mentioned, hydrogen can also offer preventive measures against these and other brain disorders due to its size, its ability to pass the blood/brain barrier, and its antioxidant properties. (2) So…don’t forget to take your hydrogen!



• EASY WEIGHT LOSS: Molecular hydrogen could be the answer to your prayers concerning weight loss. I know many people who have struggled with the battle of the bulge for years, and some for most of their lifetime, and see very positive results losing weight after starting on the H2 Inhaler combined with the convenient Tablets.

Scientific studies show several ways that hydrogen can offer dramatic therapeutic benefits in this area, and it can even affect your workouts. First, hydrogen helps to increase production of proteins that regulate sugar intake and help to counter sugar cravings, such as FGF21.(1) This makes staying on a healthy diet much easier. Next, hydrogen mitigates damage created by oxidative stress at the cellular level, which leads to the pathogenesis of diseases such as metabolic syndrome and diabetes. Hydrogen also offers both preventive AND corrective measures for issues such as insulin resistance, hypertension, high blood pressure, etc, which puts you at greater risk of developing diseases long associated with obesity.(2) Finally, hydrogen can also make your workouts more effective. Not only does hydrogen help to increase your energy level and endurance, it also cuts down on recovery time after a workout - so you aren't as sore the next day.(3)(4) It's a win-win!
