Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) enhances the body’s natural healing process by inhalation of 100% oxygen in a total body chamber, where atmospheric pressure is increased and controlled.
Under normal circumstances, oxygen is transported throughout the body only by red blood cells. With HBOT, oxygen is dissolved into all of the body’s fluids, the plasma, the central nervous system fluids, the lymph, and the bone and can be carried to areas where circulation is diminished or blocked. In this way, extra oxygen can reach all of the damaged tissues and the body can support its own healing process. The increased oxygen greatly enhances the ability of white blood cells to kill bacteria, reduces swelling and allows new blood vessels to grow more rapidly into the affected areas. It is a simple, non-invasive and painless therapy.
What are the benefits of HBOT?
It has long been known that healing many areas of the body cannot take place without appropriate oxygen levels in the tissue. Most illnesses and injuries occur, and often linger, at the cellular or tissue level. In many cases, such as: circulatory problems; non-healing wounds; and strokes, adequate oxygen cannot reach the damaged area and the body’s natural healing ability is unable to function properly. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy provides this extra oxygen naturally and with minimal side effects.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy improves the quality of life of the patient in many areas when standard medicine is not working. Many conditions such as stroke, cerebral palsy, head injuries, and chronic fatigue have responded favorably to HBOT. In addition, many other conditions have benefited from oxygen therapy including but not limited to PTSD, athletic injuries, autism and MS.
- Oxygen is essential for life, vital for healing, fundamental for cellular health and cellular communication;
- O2 therapy expedites the body’s regenerative processes;
- Accelerates immune system response and healing;
- Provides 30% more oxygen saturation into the body;
- Safe and effective for children, adults, athletes;
- Many have reported HBOT therapy key in managing the following conditions, to name a few:
Autism Spectrum Disorders
Bone & Connective Tissue Disorders
Gastrointestinal Disorders, including Leaky Gut
Head injury, concussion, nerve disorders, PTSD
Heart & Lyme disease
Traumatic Brain Injury
Swelling & Inflammation
Skin Issues (psoriasis, aging, eczema, post op, scars)
