What is HBOT?
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a medical treatment which enhances the body's natural healing process by inhalation of 100% oxygen in a total body chamber, where atmospheric pressure is increased and controlled. It is used for a wide variety of treatments usually as a part of an overall medical care plan.
Benefits of HBOT
Saturates body fluids with oxygen, up to six times normal. Increases available oxygen supply to cells, which allows them to function beyond a "maintenance" status, or to be "jump-started" and into a functioning state. Hyper-Oxygenated cells perform at an optimal level with less energy expended .
Allows oxygen to cross the blood brain barrier effortlessly, providing a source of readily available molecular oxygen for immediate use by the brain tissue. Lets cells metabolize vital glucose, which is necessary for the production of neurotransmitters essential in brain function, without expending extra energy which would use vital nutrients. (Glucose is metabolized throughout the body for energy on a daily basis).
Increases the availability of neurotransmitters.
Increases the amount of stem cells circulating in the body (University of Pennsylvania Study).
Stimulates connective tissue cells, which are rich in collagen, and promotes the growth of new skin.
Stimulates molecular and enzymatic changes, and increases the ability of white blood cells to remove foreign bodies from the bloodstream including bacteria, fungi, dead cells and waste by-products .
Stimulates the process involved in the normal remodeling of bone
Stimulates the immune response
Has potent anti-inflammatory effects
Increases the production of glutathione by 15 percent.
