Hyperbaric

Oxygen Treatment

(HBOT)

HBOT is a safe and effective treatment that may be used as part of a treatment plan to help heal many types of wounds. During HBO therapy, you breathe 100% pure oxygen while inside a clear, pressurized chamber. The air pressure inside a hyperbaric oxygen chamber is about two and a half times greater than the normal pressure in the atmosphere. This “hyperbaric” (or high pressure) dose of oxygen helps your blood carry more oxygen to organs and connective tissues to promote wound healing. It also activates the white blood cells to fight infection.

Benefits of Oxygen

 

  • Increases stem cell growth

  • Increases white blood cell production and strength

  • Significantly shortens the inflammatory process

  • Increases oxygen levels in tissues (hyperoxia)

  • Significantly reduces swelling

  • Significantly reduces edema

  • Will improve range of motion

  • Increases the production of collagen

  • Increases growth of cells that form reparative tissue (fibroblastic proliferation)

  • Supports scar tissue rehabilitation

  • Promotes greater tissue strength

  • Enhances the growth of new blood vessels (angiogenesis)

  • Increases oxygen perfusion in the area around wounds

  • Stimulates new capillary growth

  • Improves the survival of tissues in the ‘grey area’ of crush injuries

  • Increases production and improves the action of Osteoblasts and Osteoclasts

  • Improves bone regeneration for faster recovery

  • Helps prevent infection

  • Enhances ability of white blood cells to remove bacteria and debris (leukocyte activity)

  • Destroys harmful bacteria (Antimicrobial effect)

  • Oxygenation positively affects the Blood Flow

  • Destroys harmful bacteria and viruses, hepatitis, candidiasis (yeast overgrowth), parasitic infections, mycotoxicosis, etc.

  • Stimulates the immune system (rheumatoid arthritis) rather than suppresses it.

  • Improves blood circulation to the capillaries, decreases viscosity and separates the red blood cells; supports peripheral vascular diseases, arrhythmia.

  • Can improve lung function and improves the ability of red blood cells to pass on oxygen to other tissue in emphysema, asthma, chronic bronchitis etc.

  • Promotes anti-aging and rejuvenation by increasing oxygen delivery to cells, tissue and organs.

  • Decreases inflammation.

  • Reduces pain, relaxes tired muscles:fibromyalgia,

  • Relieves stress and “burnout” – nerves are calmed.

  • Speeds up the metabolic process (Improves circulation and nutrient delivery within the body) and results in a loss of 200 – 250 calories per session).

  • Reverses hypoxia (lack of oxygen) in the tissues – gangrene, diabetic infections, AIDS/HIV, etc.

  • Detoxifies – reduces environmental toxin load and is esp. helpful with environmental hypersensitivity.
