WHAT IS HYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY-HBOT
*Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition. Never disregard professional medical advice or delay seeking medical treatment*
EXPERIENCE THE HEALING POWER
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy increases the amount of oxygen your blood can carry. An increase in blood oxygen may restore normal levels of blood gases and tissue function to promote healing and fight infection.
Under normal circumstances, oxygen is transported throughout the body only by red blood cells. With Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, oxygen is dissolved in all of the body’s fluids, the plasma, the central nervous system fluids, the lymph, and the bone and it can be carried to areas where circulation is diminished or blocked. In this way, extra oxygen can reach all the damaged tissues and the body can support its own healing process. The increased oxygen greatly enhances the ability of white blood cells to kill bacteria, reduce swelling and allow new blood vessels to grow more rapidly into the affected areas.
It is a very simple, non-invasive, and painless treatment. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy may improve the quality of life in clients in many areas and can be used to enhance standard medical treatments.
Benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
● Reduces Inflammation
● Increases Stem Cell Reproduction
● Promotes Angiogenesis
● Increases Mental Clarity
● Strengthens Immune System
● Heightens Energy and Performance
● Decreases Bruising
● Anti Aging
Recently, a randomized controlled clinical trial that included 63 healthy older adults comparing placebo to hyperbaric oxygen therapy for 3 months revealed that the oxygen therapy appeared to induce cognitive enhancements in healthy aging adults via mechanisms involving regional changes in cerebral blood flow, as evaluated by perfusion magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
There was a significant group-by-time interaction in global cognitive function post-HBOT compared to control (P = .0017), with the most impressive improvements in attention (net effect size = 0.745) and information processing speed (net effect size = 0.788). The work was led by Shai Efrati, MD, director, Sagol Center for Hyperbaric Medicine and Research, Yitzhak Shamir Medical Center; and associate professor, Sackler Faculty of Medicine and Sagol School of Neuroscience, Tel Aviv University.
