WHAT IS HYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY (HBOT)?
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a medical treatment making use of oxygen under a higher than normal atmospheric pressure. The flow of plus/minus 95% pure oxygen is partnered with the increased atmospheric pressure. This combination changes the way the body absorbs and distributes oxygen. Oxygen is normally transported by red blood cells. By increasing the atmospheric pressure, the oxygen now also diffuses into the blood plasma. This enables the oxygen to reach areas within the body where circulation is blocked or diminished as a result of injury or disease. The increased oxygen levels in the blood has many health benefits such as:
- Releasing massive amounts of stem cells and hormones that are responsible for new blood vessel growth
- Decreases inflammation
- Fights infection
- Speeds up repair
- Reduces swelling
- Improves immune support
- Improved neurological functioning
It treats a wide variety of conditions, usually as part on an overall medical care plan.
HBOT can treat the following conditions:
- Surgery recovery
- Injury recovery
- Wound healing (incl. diabetic foot ulcers)
- Stroke rehabilitation
- Concussion and other traumatic brain injuries
- Sport recovery
- Overall Health and Wellness
- Brain Damage,
- Dementia etc.
- Declining Brain Performance
HBOT can dramatically and permanently improve symptoms of chronic TBI months or even many years after the original head injury.
An August 2020 study has demonstrated for the first time that Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy can significantly enhance the cognitive performance in healthy older adults. The main areas of improvement were attention, information processing speed, and executive function, in addition to the global cognitive function, all of which typically decline with age. Moreover, there was a significant correlation between the cognitive changes and improved cerebral blood flow in specific brain locations.
“The evidence for the effectiveness of HBOT in traumatic brain injuries of ALL severities and at ANY time after the incident, is so strong that survivors must seek and demand this treatment” – Dr Paul Harch –
SPORTS INJURIES, REHABILITATION AND RECOVERY:
Recovery acceleration for treatment of sports-related injuries is one of the most mainstream uses of HBOT. It is used by professional athletes across a wide variety of sports and is perhaps most extensively documented when used to treat injured athletes. By cutting down on recovery time and aiding the body’s self-healing ability, HBOT encourages muscles and tissues to mend. In addition to preventing hypoxia and scarring, HBOT can greatly aid the rehabilitation of sprains, fractures and compartment syndrome.
DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TRADITIONAL HBOT AND MEDIUM HBOT:
The main difference between the traditional HBOT and mHBOT is in terms of the pressure capability and therefor the amount of oxygen that can be delivered. Lower pressures are considered to be below 1.5 ATA and typically mHBOT is delivered at 1.3ATA. These pressures have been demonstrated to be extremely safe. mHBOT is backed by scientific research and thousands of user testimonies regarding its ability to restore and prevent deterioration of cells, tissue and organs. Oxygenate chambers go to 1.45 ATA pressure
mHBOT has been proven to pose minimal risk to users, regardless of age and physical state. The most common side effect of a mHBOT session is tightness in the ears and sinus canal during the atmospheric change in the chamber. This discomfort is similar to the feeling of flying aboard a commercial aircraft.
HBOT is one of the lowest risk medical treatments available today.
HBOT is an additional treatment that adds healing power to existing therapies, making them more effective.
HBOT is a gene therapy with effects that last far beyond the treatment.
