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, or stand alone treatment.HBOT activates the white blood cells to fight infection, promoting resistance to infection, as well as wound healing throughout the body and brain. HBOT also helps to reduce inflammation and oxidative stress. Hyperbaric oxygen is used to treat all conditions which benefit from increased tissue oxygen availability, as well as infections where it can be used for its antibiotic properties, either as the primary therapy, or in conjunction with other drugs.
Other uses for HBOT include: Cancer, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Autism, ADD/ADHD, Stroke, Anti-Aging, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Crohn’s Disease, Colitis, Lyme Disease, Fibromyalgia, Multiple Sclerosis, Burns Post-Surgery, Migraine Headaches, Vascular Disease, Radiation Damage, Bone Fractures, Sports Injuries and Cerebral Palsy, Increased Detoxification, Pain Reduction, Joint and Muscle Support, Cardio-vascular Healing and General Wellness and Prevention.
HBOT treats the underlying disease process that causes and perpetuates a wide variety of chronic conditions. HBOT is used therapeutically to treat conditions in which tissues have been damaged by oxygen deprivation. When the oxygen is restored to these tissues, much of the lost function returns. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy improves the quality of life of the patient in many areas when standard medicine is not working. It is a simple, non-invasive and painless treatment.
