Hyperbaric Therapy

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is used to treat a wide range of conditions, with new applications being researched on a continual basis. There are currently fifteen conditions treatable with hyperbaric that are approved by the FDA in the US.  However, there are numerous “off-label” uses for hyperbaric oxygen therapy, many of which are documented with scientific evidence that is stronger than that of the FDA approved conditions.  Nearly all medical clinics, doctor’s offices, and hospitals use FDA-approved drugs and medical devices for “off-label” use on a consistent basis.  FDA allows “off-label” use of approved medical devices that have scientific data supporting their use under the supervision of a licensed physician.

The following is a list of many conditions with documented benefit from hyperbaric oxygen therapy as an “off-label” treatment:

  • Autism/ Autistic Spectrum Disorders
  • Acquired Immune Deficiency SyndromeAIDS/ HIV
  • Allergies, Asthma, Immunity
  • ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis)
  • Alzheimer’s

The following is a list of the fifteen conditions that are FDA approved for treatment with hyperbaric therapy. These conditions are typically reimbursed by insurance and include:

  • Severe Anemia
  • Skin Grafts and Flaps (Compromised)
  • Thermal Burns

EASY TO UNDERSTAND

You don’t have to be a doctor to know that oxygen is our most important element for life. Wellness is totally dependant up on it. If so far as body function is concerned if you don't use it you lose it so any activity increases the human body's need for oxygen. So we exercise with extra oxygen and whoopie!! Just a 30-60 minute session on our home model oxygen bar displaces harmful free radicals, neutralizes environmental toxins, and destroys anaerobic infectious bacteria, parasites, and microbes. Not to mention all the cellular repair you get. 

Oxygen enhances the body's ability to rebuild itself, detoxify blood, and strengthen the immune system.  It will heighten your concentration, memory and alertness, sometimes in minutes.

How are we getting more oxygen by increasing the level we breathe normally?
Normally, a red blood cell carries no more than 97% oxygen. Many will argue that you cannot force another 3% into the cell. This is true. However, additional oxygen is absorbed by the plasma (which carry the red and white blood cells) and is then pushed into the  body's cells without the aid of the red cells. Very little oxygen actually gets through, but if you are consistently feeding your body the extra oxygen, there will be an extensive increase in your total tissue oxygen level. The goal is to keep the oxygen level of your blood as close as you can to 100 points. We show you how to get an inexpensive instrument to measure that when you get one of our units.

HEALTHY O2
All unhealthy germs and bacteria are weakened or killed with oxygen. If one is suffering from headaches, hangover, migraine, stress, fatigue, cramps, jet lag, heat exhaustion, or minor aches and pains, oxygen can provide almost immediate relief.  On a longer term basis, oxygen helps flush toxins and impurities out of ones blood, possibly preventing cancer from gaining a foothold as well as reduce the effects of mold. Also, if one has minor sprains or injuries, oxygen can promote the healing of these injuries resulting in faster healing times

Documented cases that often stem from under-oxygenation:
• Development of cancerous cells which typically convert to cancer.
• The development of disease more rapidly and more often.
• Retention of toxins in the tissues.
• Lack of tissue stimulation furthest from the heart.
• Fatigue more often and for longer periods.
• Weak mental focus and stimulation.
• Poor digestion and food metabolism.

Documented effects of usage of supplemental oxygen:
• Recovery from physical activity increases by 5-10 fold.
• Physical activity participation at a higher level.
• Excellent relief from altitude sickness and symptoms.
• Relief from stress (Stress causes shallow breathing which in effect limits oxygen consumption).
• An increase feeling in well-being.
• More efficient metabolism.
• Sleeping better.
• Enhanced moods.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a painless procedure in which a person is exposed to increased pressure, thus allowing greater absorption of oxygen throughout body tissues.  This increased pressure allows more oxygen to reach the cells within the body thus contributing to the many healing and therapeutic benefits. The concept of Hyperbaric oxygenation has been in existence as early as 1662 but has only gained recognition in conventional medicine over the past 40 years. 
 

How Does Hyperbaric Oxygen Work?

A pressurized environment allows a greater amount of gas (in this case oxygen) to be dissolved into a liquid (in this case plasma).  This is known as Henry’s Law of Physics.  For instance, when a carbonated beverage is canned at the factory, a great amount of pressure is applied so that more carbon dioxide can be dissolved into the beverage, which causes carbonation.  When the beverage is opened, the pressure is released, and the amount of carbonation decreases over time resulting in a “flat” beverage. It is this same law that applies to hyperbaric therapy.  Greater amounts of oxygen are absorbed into the plasma, synovial fluid and cerebral fluid when the body is pressurized using a hyperbaric chamber.  In addition to the greater absorption, the oxygen is also allowed to reach areas in the body that are difficult to reach without the increased pressure.

Is Hyperbaric Painful?

Hyperbaric therapy is typically a relaxing and comfortable experience where users can either read or sleep inside the chamber.  It is a painless treatment, but some people experience a “popping” of their ears, similar to the feeling experienced when changing altitudes in an airplane.  People can alleviate this condition by chewing gum, popping their ears, or using “ear planes”.  It is a normal sensation that is experienced when pressurization changes are felt when air is forced behind the eardrum through the Eustachian tube

                   

While there are many different manufacturers and designs of hyperbaric chambers, there are only 2 basic types of units, high-pressure hyperbaric systems and mild hyperbaric chambers, also referred to as portable hyperbaric chambers.  The type of chamber used will depend on the condition to be treated and physician’s protocol.  High-pressure, or hospital grade, hyperbaric chambers, pressurize to 35 pounds per square inch (PSI) under normal therapy conditions, where as portable hyperbaric chambers typically pressurize to 4-5 PSI.  Both types of chambers have shown benefits in medical studies to many chronic conditions.  However, the two types of hyperbaric have distinct advantages and disadvantages:

Hyperbaric Oxygen

Another consideration in hyperbaric oxygen therapy is the oxygen itself. High pressure chambers are usually designed to use enriched or pure oxygen, however, in some cases, an oxygen concentrator is used.  Oxygen concentrators take ambient air, or the surrounding air, and turn it into up to 95% oxygen.  While mild hyperbaric chambers typically use oxygen concentrators, a tank of 100% oxygen can be used as well.  Oxygen concentrators provide 5% less oxygen than pure oxygen tanks, but are considered much safer in terms of operation and fire hazards.
