Multiple Sclerosis and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Studies

Multiple Sclerosis and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Studies

Multiple sclerosis is a disease of the nervous system that affects the brain and the spinal cord. It attacks the myelin sheath, which is the protective material around nerve cells. The destruction of this sheath disrupts the signals between the brain and the body. How effective HBOT can be for MS depends on whether injured cells have truly died or whether the cells remain dormant but viable. Treatments for multiple sclerosis with hyperbaric oxygen therapy early produces the best results, while the brain’s potential to restore lost function is the greatest. Even though HBOT cannot help everyone with MS, it’s important to remember that even chronic MS patients have experienced dramatic improvements.

Tuning into your body

Tuning into your body

You can better promote your own sense of well-being by tuning into your body. This means experiencing your body in the world and being aware of how your body feels, particularly in relation to the outside world. In fact, much of our cognition may stem from, and even depend on, bodily information, which can play a functional role in integrating knowledge about the world. For example, did you know that the emotions you feel originate from physical sensations (such as feeling like your stomach is in knots, indicating stress, or feeling your chest expand, indicating happiness).

Benefits of hyperbaric chamber therapy for athletes

Benefits of hyperbaric chamber therapy for athletes

Reasons why many athletes use hyperbaric chambers for their sports performance and recovery
Performance may be an athlete’s job, but physical maintenance and recovery is the foundation.

So how could extra oxygen help? And even more than that…how could oxygen administer in a hyperbaric chamber help?

Michael Phelps, LeBron James, Rashad Jennings, Rafael Soriano, and Joe Namath are just a few athletes who have used hyperbaric chambers. Some of the benefits you’ll hear from some of these athletes include:

l Feeling better after sleeping

l Feeling more energy

l Recovering from soreness faster

l Recovering from injuries faster

l Sharpened mental clarity

Let’s talk about how hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) benefits your tissues more than disciplined breathing. And even more than breathing pure oxygen from a mask or nasal cannula.

Could hyperbaric oxygen be the answer to your brain condition?

Could hyperbaric oxygen be the answer to your brain condition?

Research in the past decade points to a dearth of oxygen supply in some diseases that predisposes individuals to neurodegeneration afterward. So, hypoxia—or lack of oxygen—from injury, stroke or renal disease, for example, seems to play a major role in neurodegenerative disorders including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Restoring oxygen has become an obvious potential target for therapy.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Lyme Disease

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Lyme Disease

Relevant research and case reports have shown that this therapy, which provides a high-pressure oxygen environment to enhance tissue oxygenation, can effectively kill the pathogens of Lyme disease, alleviate symptoms, and improve patients’ quality of life.
