The Essential Health Benefits of HyperBaric Oxygen Therapy

Most individuals depend upon the consumption of oxygen to live. A majority of atmospheric air is made up roughly of 21% oxygen. In addition, oxygen is necessary for the production of cellular energy in the mitochondria of every cell in the body.

The use of pure 100% oxygen in a high pressure atmosphere has proven to have exceptional health benefits. Generally speaking, the hyperbaric chamber has pure oxygen administered at pressures 1.5 – 3 times the usual atmospheric pressure.

Typically, treatment times for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy ranges from 30-90 minutes. Administering oxygen at higher pressures causes up to 20 times more oxygen to be absorbed by the blood and transferred to injured organs and tissues. As a result, this speeds healing and recovery time in addition to other benefits of using Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy & Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Breathing in 100% (pure) oxygen under increased pressure, called Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, gives extra oxygen an opportunity to be taken up by the bloodstream and dissolved at a far greater and faster rate. Moreover, this extra oxygen can assist where healing is slowed down by infection or where blood supply is limited by damage to the tissues.

100% oxygen is considered a drug by the FDA and one needs a prescription to use it. Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (mHBOT) has shown drastic results and uses around 95% oxygen in a 1.3-1.4 atmospheric pressure.

As a result, this is a much lower cost treatment that one could do on their own without a medical prescription that has little to no risk and incredible benefits as well.

Usually, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy that uses 100% oxygen which is greater than 1.5 times the atmospheric pressure is a bit more expensive per session.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Has Been Shown To Aid With:

  • Assist healing by raising tissue oxygen levels to normal in areas where they are reduced through illness or injury

  • Encourage new blood vessels to grow and carry additional blood

  • Increase the ability of the body’s defense mechanisms to fight infection and kill bacteria

  • Help reduce any swelling that may occur around the area.

A condition of any type which results in inflammation in the body can benefit from Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. Additionally, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy increases the dosage of oxygen and delivers more O2 to damaged areas in the body and stimulates the healing process.

Overall, oxygen is one of the most natural antibiotics and it controls over 8000 genes. A course of 20 sessions of hyperbaric therapy increases our stem cells eightfold.
