Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a medical treatment, which enhances the body’s natural healing process by inhalation of 100% oxygen in a total body chamber, where atmospheric pressure is increased and controlled. It is used for a wide variety of treatments usually as a part of an overall medical care plan.

It is an extremely effective treatment that dramatically improves oxygen delivery to tissues throughout the body, increases levels of rejuvenating stem cells, wakes up damaged brain cells and stimulates production of new blood vessels.

HBOT can be helpful for many conditions including

  • Stroke
  • Brain Injury
  • Lyme Disease
  • Autism
  • ALS
  • Burns, Injuries
  • Muscle Recovery
  • Chronic Inflammation
  • Cancer
  • Infections
  • Heavy Metal Poisoning
  • CO2 Poisoning
  • Chronic Fatigue
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Immune Dysfunction
  • Migraines
  • Macular Degeneration
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Diabetes/Foot Ulcers
  • Chron’s disease
  • PTSD
  • Heart Disease
  • Non-Healing Wounds
  • Radiation Necrosis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Detoxification
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Neurodegenerative Disorders
  • And many more conditions

HBOT is medicine’s most efficient method of transporting oxygen to cells throughout the body. When you breathe oxygen at normal atmospheric pressure, it is transported by the hemoglobin in your red blood cells. Under pressure, however oxygen dissolves in the plasma, cerebrospinal fluid in the brain and spinal cord, lymph and other body fluids. It is therefore easily delivered to all tissues and even areas with limited blood flow which affords the tremendous healing benefits of oxygen.

HBOT also curbs infections by providing a hostile environment to anaerobic bacteria, which thrive in the absence of oxygen. It promotes the growth of new capillaries and blood vessels to areas with poor circulation for cardiovascular support and boosts collagen formation for faster wound healing. It also mobilizes rejuvenating stem cells.

Mild vs. Hard HBOT

While hard HBOT with 100% oxygen, results in greater oxygen saturation in the tissues, many conditions respond better to mild HBOT. In clinical trials to date, there had been virtually no difference in clinical outcomes between mild and hard HBOT. In addition, mild HBOT has no known safety risks with fire or oxygen toxicity, and it is substantially less expensive. For the success of most protocols it’s about session frequency, correct pressure, and correct oxygen concentration.
