HBOT is especially recommended in combination with Holistic Therapy, since Holistic Therapy releases restrictions in the connective tissue that prevent some cells and tissues from receiving oxygen.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is the delivery of pressurized oxygen into the blood, cerebrospinal fluid, muscles, skin, brain, and vital organs. Without sufficient oxygen, only 5% of the nutrients in your food and dietary supplements can be used by the body. Therefore, oxygen deficiency results in a need to consume more calories in order to obtain the necessary nutrients to survive. This, in turn, results in obesity and many other health conditions.
HBOT is much more effective than traditional oxygen therapy, because the added use of pressure forces oxygen into resistant, oxygen-deprived tissues. HBOT has been used to effectively treat/prevent/relief the following conditions:
- ALS “Lou Gehrig’s Disease”
- Autism Spectrum Disorders
- Candida & Fungal Infections
- Cerebral Palsy
- Chemical Poisoning
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Crohn’s Disease
- Flesh Eating Bacteria
- Gastric & Duodenal Ulcers
- Guillain-Barre Syndrom
- Headaches, Hangovers
- Heart Attack
- Hypoxic Birth Disorders
- Hypoxic Induced Epilepsy
- Inflammatory Arthritis
- Lymes Disease
- Macular Degeneration
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Rehabilitative Care
- Rhematoid Arthritis Scelodrema
- Spider Bite
- Surgery Healing, pre- and post-
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Wound Healing
HBOT has also been used to enhance the effects of cancer therapies, since increased oxygen makes the cancer cells more susceptible to radiation & chemotherapy.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy works best as a program with multiple, weekly treatments to train the body to increase its ability to transport oxygen. However, it can also be effective as a stand-alone treatment or is an excellent addition to other treatments or programs offered at Transformations Wellness Holistic Therapy Center.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What is HBOT?
A: HBOT is an abbreviation for hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a medical treatment which enhances the body’s natural healing process by delivering oxygen under pressure, increasing the oxygen content in the blood and in the cerebral spinal fluid, flooding the tissues with oxygen.
Q: How does HBOT work?
- Hyperoxygenation – By increasing the oxygen dissolved in the plasma (the liquid portion of the blood), the lymphatic fluid, and the cerebrospinal fluid, HBOT increases the oxygen available to damaged tissues, stimulating healing.
- Neovascularization – HBOT stimulates blood vessel formation (angiogenesis) and collagen (connective tissue) formation in areas that were previously resistant due to lack of oxygen.
- Hyperoxia enhanced antimicrobial activity – HBOT reduces or eliminates the effects of toxic substances, bacteria, viruses, and yeast by increasing the tissue oxygen levels.
- Hyperoxia enhanced immune response – HBOT activates the white blood cells to fight infection, promoting resistance to infection, as well as wound healing. HBOT also helps to reduce inflammation and oxidative stress.
Q: What conditions are treated with HBOT?
A: HBOT is FDA approved to treat air or gas embolism, carbon monoxide & cyanide poisoning, crush injury & acute traumatic ischemia, decompression sickness, delayed radiation injury, diabetic foot ulcers, enhanced healing of problem wounds, exceptional blood loss, gas gangrene, intracranial abscess, necrotizing soft tissue infections, osteomyelitis (refractory), skin grafts and flaps (compromised), and thermal burns. Portable hyperbaric chambers are cleared by the FDA to treat acute mountain sickness only. All other conditions treated by portable hyperbaric chambers are considered off-label uses.
Q: Will my insurance cover HBOT treatments?
A: Many of the above uses are quite commonplace internationally, in countries such as Russia, China, Japan, Italy, and the U.K. However, because these conditions are considered off-label in the U.S., it means that insurance companies don’t have to reimburse you for the treatment of these conditions with HBOT, saving them billions of dollars. It also means that Big Pharma’s highly profitable blockbuster drugs will continue to be the first course of treatment for these conditions, despite their exorbitant costs, toxic side-effects, and detrimental long-term effects on your health.
Q: How does HBOT treat so many different conditions?
A: HBOT treats the underlying disease process that causes and perpetuates a wide variety of chronic conditions. HBOT is used therapeutically to treat conditions in which tissues have been damaged by oxygen deprivation. When the oxygen is restored to these tissues, much of the lost function returns. HBOT also helps to reduce inflammation and promote wound healing throughout the body and the brain.
Q: Are there many published studies on HBOT?
A: There are over 30,000 published scientific studies on HBOT.
Q: What happens during the treatment?
A: For many people, a session in a hyperbaric chamber is no different than an airplane flight. You need to able to clear your ears to be comfortable. Once you have descended to pressure and your ears adjust, you will feel completely normal in the chamber. You can bring a portable computer or an ipod into the chamber, along with beverages, blankets, and pillows. You can sit, exercise, sleep, read, listen to music, or watch videos.
Q: How safe is HBOT?
A: HBOT is very safe. The most common problem experienced by people undergoing HBOT is problems equalizing the pressure in their ears.
Q: Why do so few doctors know about HBOT?
A: Few medical schools offer classes or training in hyperbaric medicine. Big Pharma is primarily responsible for the medical education of doctors, starting when they are medical students and continuing throughout their careers. The majority of clinicians are on Big Pharma’s payroll. Approximately 80% of continuing medical education courses are sponsored by Big Pharma. Approximately 90% of advertising in medical journals is for prescription drugs. Big Pharma has turned doctors into highly paid pill pushers who are often oblivious to the dangerous side effects of many of the drugs that they prescribe. It’s no wonder that most doctors know little about the health benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
Q: How can I learn more about HBOT?
A: The most comprehensive book about HBOT is “The Oxygen Revolution: Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy: The Groundbreaking New Treatment for Stroke, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Arthritis, Autism, Learning Disabilities and More” by Paul Harch, M.D. This book is geared toward individuals who would like to learn more about how HBOT works and what conditions it treats. The book explores the science behind HBOT, as well as the case histories of patients who have benefited from HBOT.
Q: Are HBOT chambers approved by the FDA?
A: HBOT chambers are Class II Medical Devices that are cleared by the FDA for the treatment of acute mountain sickness.
