Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy -HBOT 1.3 ATA (4 psi) operating pressure
HBOT is the medical use of oxygen in a pressurized environment which allows for oxygen to saturate the blood plasma and increases the absorption of oxygen levels to all organs of the body by 28-40% while passively lying in the chamber for about 60 minutes.
Every cell in our body requires oxygen to create energy, for cellular function, for regeneration and to help prevent pre-mature aging. Illness from toxins and pathogens competes for the oxygen that healthy cells need. This is why stressors of any type causes a decrease in the ability to absorb oxygen into the blood, which can result in decreased oxygenation to the tissues.
Proper detoxification creates space for the absorption of oxygen to the cells and tissues with oxygen therapy. Then the oxygen can better regenerate and heal the tissue that has been broken down from toxins and pathogens. Stressors common to everyone are man-made chemicals, insecticides, pesticides, toxic metals, radioactive substances, electro-pollution, disease-causing pathogens, and psyche-emotional stress. Pressurized oxygen from HBOT helps stimulate stem cells to repair and regenerates cells and soft tissues, especially after an individual clears out enough toxic garbage through effective detoxification methods such as light & frequency therapies for detoxification, the near infrared sauna, supportive detox supplements, and lymphatic drainage.
HBOT creates an excess reservoir of oxygen to improve mitochondrial function, supplying the body with the oxygen nutrient necessary for cellular performance and energy production. The pressurized oxygen generates a larger pressure gradient so that when you breathe, you have greater gas exchange to increase the oxygen levels to the cells.
The excess reservoir of oxygen helps reduce inflammation, oxidative stress and free-radical damage, thus improving mitochondrial function and stimulating the stem cells to repair and regenerate tissue. HBOT improves the recovery phase of perfusion-related injuries such as stroke and MI’s and helps regenerate soft tissue from radiation burns, wounds and certain infections. During an acute infection, the recovery process improves by increasing the activation of the white blood cells to help the body fight the infection with higher levels of oxygen. HBOT is supportive for additional conditions such as osteonecrosis, osteomyelitis, gangrene, certain diabetic neuropathies with non-healing wounds, plus neurological issues.
Dr. Thomas Seyfried, Boston College and Dominic D'Agostino advocates hyperbaric oxygen therapy to be done a minimum of 2 hours per week.
