Hyper Baric Oxygen Therapy
Did you know?
Our body needs energy and 90% of our energy comes from oxygen and 10% comes from food and water. Our body consumes about 6 pounds of oxygen per day. And anaerobic bacteria, toxins, fungi and viruses all have one thing in common; none can survive in an oxygen rich environment.
There is a cool fact in the laws of physics…
An increase in atmospheric pressure results in more gas being dissolved in any given liquid.
In this case the atmospheric pressure is the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy chamber (HBOT), the gas is oxygen and the liquid is blood. Therefore, in the HBOT chamber results in more oxygen being dissolved in the blood.
How does this help my body heal?
Under pressure, the oxygen does not only hook up to red blood cells (“traditional” way oxygen is delivered, to tissues) but also dissolves into the blood plasma. When the plasma circulates near the damaged or injured cells they receive more oxygen from the blood plasma than from just the red blood cells the “traditional” delivery system allows.
Why is that so important?
A greater oxygen supply will enhance the recovery if damaged tissues such as brain cells, a bruised muscle, a sprained tendon, a surgical wound even assist in anti-aging etc. HBOT can therefore help in a number of other conditions to name a few...
- Cancer recovery
- Stroke recovery
- Chronic fatigue syndrome and even migraines
- Sports injuries
With a host of other conditions not mentioned above, in fact the HBOT has been and can be used for any condition related to immune dysfunction and conditionals related to supply of blood to an organ.
OK OK! Sounds great but is it safe?
Mild HBOT is approved by the US FDA (Food and Drug Administration) It has a flawless safety record.
Alright, how do I get myself or a loved one a treatment?
