Pure O2 Healing, Hyperbaric Oxygen



The original intention of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) was to treat deep sea divers who may have suffered from air embolism following a dive. After a considerable amount of medical research and tests, scientists discovered that a great variety of conditions could benefit from HBOT. These conditions include Strokes, Cerebral Palsy, Autism, ADD/ADHD, Alzheimer’s/Dementia, Arthritis, Depression, MS, Fibromyalgia, Migraines, Diabetes, Wounds, Traumatic Brain Injury. It will also work to boost the immune system, reduce inflammation and swelling, build new blood vessels, increase energy and stamina.

HBOT can only be performed in a hyperbaric chamber because it requires that atmospheric pressure be increased while supplying pure oxygen to the patient. The atmospheric pressure at sea level is nearly 15 pounds per square inch, or one atmosphere absolute (1 ATA). During HBOT, the chamber increases the pressure to more than twice that of the earth’s 1 ATA.

Due to the heightened pressure, the pure oxygen is saturated into the blood at a higher rate and is able to be absorbed by every muscle, tissue and cell in the body. In theory, the concentration of the oxygen residing in the cells at that moment is so high that it is even possible to keep a person alive in such a state without any blood in his/her body. Since HBOT is able to provide the necessary amounts of oxygen to the body and the increased pressure drives that oxygen into the damaged cells, the cells have sufficient oxygen for the healing process.

In addition to the greater availability of oxygen, HBOT can accelerate healing because of the increase in stem cells. These cells lay inside the bone marrow and are responsible for accelerating the healing of damaged cells and tissue. Whenever any part of the body is injured, these stem cells are excreted from the bone and move to the location of injury. They are crucial for healing the damaged cells. Due to the stimulation of the stem cells, the healing process is accelerated.

There are very few side effects to HBOT and the therapy may be utilized by children, adults and seniors.
