HYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY

HYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a medical therapy that utilizes oxygen in a pressurized environment. In this pressurized environment, exponential levels of oxygen are able to saturate the blood system; well-beyond what the human body is normally capable of accepting.
 All of the fluids in the body -including blood, plasma, synovial, lymph and spinal fluids, become saturated with oxygen, which allows for all of the body’s vital cell processes to be performed at an optimal level. Swelling and inflammation of cells are reduced, while circulation and blood flow are increased, or restored to previously restricted areas.
As a result, wounds and injuries heal more rapidly, recovery from surgery is much faster, and detoxification is also promoted; thus reducing the risk of any post-procedure complications or infections.

BENEFITS OF HBOT

80% of energy used in cellular metabolism comes from oxygen. When cells and tissues are deprived of blood and oxygen, the metabolism comes to a halt and cells stop functioning properly. This lack of oxygen, or hypoxia, is a major component of disease and aging. The benefits of HBOT go far beyond restoring oxygen to depleted tissues and cells though. HBOT is the only non-hormonal DNA signaling drug that has been shown to regulate antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, growth, and repair gene expression. HBOT has also been shown to:
  • Support and regulate immune function
  • Stimulate blood vessel growth
  • Directly kill Anaerobes Bacteria
  • Increase fibroblast and collagen production
  • Reduce inflammation and edema
  • Enhance oxidative stress resistance
  • Potentiate the effectiveness of certain antibiotics
  • Preserve skin grafts, flaps, and other tissues
  • Greatly increase the number of circulating stem cells
  • Increase production of Osteoblasts and Osteoclasts
  • Enhance body’s ability to destroy bacteria & viruses
