Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, also known as HBOT, involves breathing 100% oxygen in a pressurized chamber to increase oxygen levels in blood plasma.
A century of clinical research has shown oxygen under pressure:
- Increases oxygen in plasma accelerating our natural ability to heal
- Regulates 8,101 of approximately 20,000 total genes
- Upregulates anti-inflammatory genes
- Downregulates inflammatory genes
- Mobilizes stem cells and growth factors associated with the body’s regenerative and reparative processes
Outside the United Sates, HBOT is used to extend and improve quality of life by augmenting the treatment of injuries, diseases, and infections as well as improving overall wellness and physical performance.
The FDA has cleared the use of HBOT for 14 indications including wounds, carbon monoxide poisoning, burns, osteomyelitis, radiation injury to name a few. The National Institute of Health (NIH) lists over 400 ongoing clinical trials for the use of hyperbaric medicine covering the treatment of most diseases and conditions such as stroke, cancer, ulcerative colitis, alzheimer’s, parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, and traumatic brain injuries. For a complete listing, visit the NIH Clinical Trials website.
