HBOT for a range of medical ailments

There are so many benefits to gain from Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) and these are being endorsed by a growing number of medical practitioners. Following research and clinical studies, HBOT is being mooted as a remedial or curing aid for a wide range of medical ailments.
In the past, HBOT was generally only recognised as a remedial tool for decompression sickness, air embolisms and carbon monoxide poisoning. Today, however, it is being used for a wide range of other medical problems.
South Africans have joined the pro-HBOT brigade and there are now a number of practitioners in most major cities, as well as in Namibia.

What is HBOT?

Firstly, let’s examine how HBOT is implemented.
Patients enter a high-pressure chamber into which 100% pure oxygen is pumped, under pressure. Not only does this improve the delivery of oxygen to body tissues, but it also increases blood plasma oxygen by 10-to-20-fold. Its enhanced healing action reverses fungal growth and restores the immune system. Clinically, HBOT promotes:
• Cell growth
• Promotes wound healing
• Reduces swelling and inflammation
• Repairs tissue damage
• Stimulates new blood vessel formation

Reduces Chronic Pain

One of the great attributes of the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy technique is that it is a painkiller, reducing opioid dependency in chronic pain sufferers.

Improves Heart Disease and Stroke Sym

Improves Heart Disease and Stroke Symptoms
Seventy-three patients who had suffered a stroke and who were given 40 sessions of HBOT displayed a significant improvement to damaged nerves and brains. In another study, of 12 patients who suffered a stroke after heart surgery, 10 made a full recovery after receiving HBOT.

HBOT remedial treatments

HBOT is used for a growing number of medical conditions. here we take a look at just a handful of these remedial treatments:

Vision Loss
Loss or impaired vision is common in elderly people. This is caused when the blood vessels in the eyes become obstructed. Apart from increasing the oxygen supply to eye tissues, HBOT helps to reduce inflammation of the retina. In a clinical study, two blind aged patients experienced a significant improvement in their vision after eight to nine HBOT sessions.

Helps to Improve Brain Injuries and Trauma

In clinical studies, 60 spinal injury patients who were given HBOT for eight weeks displayed a reduction of anxiety and depression, as well as improved nerve function. In a review of a further 11 studies involving 705 patients, HBOT helped to improve brain activity. A study involving the immune cells in severely injured patients found that HBOT suppressed inflammation after just one session.

Healing Tissue Infections

Bacterial infections destroy the soft tissue and, if untreated, can turn into gangrene. A survey of 1,583 patients found that HBOT increased their survival rate and actually cured a few of the cases under review. Have a look at an article writing service for more information. This is attributed to the fact that HBOT acts as an anti-inflammatory, stimulates tissue growth, inhibits bacterial growth, improves the efficacy of antibiotics and guards against infections.

Improves  Hearing Loss

In a study involving 167 patients, HBOT was found to improve their loss of hearing.

Improves the Counter-Effect of Radiotherapy

Radiation destroys non-cancerous tissues that surround tumours. HBOT effectively reduced tissue damage caused by radiotherapy in 753 patients suffering from cancer in the neck, head and anus. A further 57 patients suffering from breast cancer underwent 47 HBOT sessions and displayed a decrease in pain, over-sensitivity and tissue toxicity. Of twenty-one patients suffering from cancer of the jaw bone, 85.7% were cured after receiving HBOT.
