Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy With Pure O2 Healing
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.
Shanna Rivera, CTT, and Flowwell offer thermography in the clinic one day a month. Thermography is infrared imaging of your body. Thermal cameras show us if there are any abnormal heat signatures that could indicate cancer, inflammation, toxins, hormonal imbalance, nerve damage, poor circulation, and many other findings.
Since our body is symmetric, our heat signatures should also be symmetric or mirror both sides of the body. If there is an extremely hot or cold spot on one side of your body, it can be a sign of cancerous growth or an underlying condition. Patients will then work with their doctor to discuss the Thermography report and later review it with an experienced technician to figure out if lifestyle changes will benefit their health.
Amazing Doctor! She took the time to really listen to me and understand my concerns! Within a few weeks under her care I was finally feeling like my old self, after over a year of feeling miserable! Thank you Dr. McDonald!
I finally found someone to listen. After years of seeing so many doctors, Dr. McDonald actually took the time to listen to me, hear my concerns, and find solutions! I am forever grateful.
