What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a technology that has been around for the last 80 years. HBOT involves breathing almost pure oxygen in an enclosed space or chamber. The air we normally breathe is only 21% oxygen, the rest is made up of other elements, mainly nitrogen.  With HBOT, you are breathing in 97% pure oxygen. HBOT creates an artificial environment of super high oxygen which allows your body to recover much faster, where, under normal conditions, it would be impossible. By breathing in 97% pure oxygen, you are accessing the newest and safest way to treat chronic injuries, illnesses and diseases.

Medical scientists are finding that the power of oxygen has the potential to support the body by providing the following benefits:

  • A rebalanced immune system

  • Increased energy

  • Reduced pain & inflammation

  • Reverse ageing

  • Transformed brain and cognitive function

  • Healing stubborn wounds

 

What happens during a Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Session?

During a HBOT session you will breathe in 1100 grams of oxygen per hour, which is more than 10 times the amount you would breathe in during from normal conditions. When your blood becomes saturated with oxygen, your body has the opportunity to flush out nasty toxins and inflammation that would be impossible under normal conditions. Increased blood and increased oxygen accelerates muscle, brain and tissue cell recovery dramatically, reducing and eradicating inflammation. 75-90% of all human diseases start from chronic inflammation. HBOT is one of the only ways to naturally drain bad inflammation without making any drastic lifestyle changes. Flushing out bad inflammation can help heal many conditions.

 

Increased levels of Glutathione: Our Immune Systems are closely monitored by a powerful antioxidant called Glutathione. When Glutathione detects danger, it jumps into action and eliminates harmful free radicals from your bloodstream. This is especially important when your body is under chronic stress and inflammation. After a HBOT session, your body will have an approximate 15% increase in Glutathione.

 

Who can Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy benefit?

Many specialised research hospitals including the Johns Hopkins Hospital are starting to test how HBOT can help people with:

  • PTSD, Depression & Anxiety.

  • Autism

  • Chronic Pain

  • Migraines

  • Concussions

  • Brain injuries

  • Trauma

  • Respiratory issues

  • Chrons/Colitis

  • Circulatory issues

  • MS

  • Insomnia

 

Research into these injuries, illnesses and diseases are still in the early stages, however early signs show promising results.
