Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
I am so excited to offer Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber (HBOC) Treatments. What’s the first thing you get when you end up in a hospital bed? Oxygen. Why? Because it helps with so many things, from infections and bacteria to concussion and stroke recovery, mental health and pre/post-surgery.
Let’s take a deeper look at the benefits of HBOT:
1. Autoimmune and Inflammation
Chronic inflammation is a primary driver of every chronic illness, including autoimmune disease, cancer, heart disease, and others. One of the most profound benefits of HBOT is its reduction in inflammation and inflammatory markers. Perhaps most exciting is the fact that it can dramatically decrease both acute and chronic inflammation. This gives it enormous potential to both prevent and help reverse autoimmune conditions.
2. Mental Health & Insomnia
Brain imaging studies show HBOT increases blood flow, which is linked to improved psychological health. Recent studies also show the benefits for mental health conditions like CPTSD/PTSD, ADHD, depression, and anxiety. In addition, exposure to high levels of oxygen encourages the brain to remain in deep, restorative sleep, according to a new study by University of Alberta neuroscientists.
3.Traumatic Brain Injury
Treatment protocol for Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) HBOT is regulated by the FDA as a drug, and like a drug, the appropriate dose can vary with the condition being treated.
The recommended protocol for TBI is currently one or more blocks of 40, 1-hour HBOT sessions delivered at 1.3 to 1.5 ATM. Our HBOC is 1.3 ATM.
4. Pre/Post Surgery (for Elective and Non-elective surgery)
Hyperbaric oxygen is now available to patients undergoing elective cosmetic surgery. A unique protocol of using hyperbaric oxygen before and after cosmetic surgery can reduce pain and swelling, improve circulation, speed up the recovery process by a third, and even improve results. Patients undergoing face lifts, eyelid and breast surgery, nasal reconstruction, abdominal surgery, chemical and laser peels, as well as liposuction have benefited from pre-op and post-op hyperbaric treatments
