HYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY

In a nutshell, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is defined as delivering oxygen under pressure to the human body… However, both the oxygen AND the body must both be under pressure. The purpose is to saturate every cell in every tissue and organ with pure oxygen.

Let me give a brief explanation: Under pressure, a gas will dissolve in water. We all know this already and experience it every day when we drink soda. Take a bottle of water and pressurize it with CO2, and the gas will dissolve in the water creating soda water. Release the pressure by opening the bottle, and the CO2 will bubble out.

Now imagine your body instead of a bottle, 70% of which is water. You climb into one of our comfy hyperbaric chambers, we pressurize the chamber to approximately the same pressure you would experience at the bottom of a swimming pool, and give you pure oxygen (O2) to breath. Like the CO2 in a bottle, the O2 you are breathing will dissolve in all the fluids of your body, every cell, in every tissue, in every organ. From your toes to your brain, everything will saturate with O2. Your cells will be filled with oxygen to an extent they can only experience under these conditions. Consequently, your organs will detox and heal, setting off a cascade of regeneration.

Thus, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is worthwhile for virtually every person on the planet, helping them stay healthy and vital. For others who are suffering from some kind of disease or injury, from Diabetes to central nervous system stroke or after a surgery, HBOT treatments can be life-changing and even life-saving.

Joe Namath discusses HBOT for the treatment of TBI

My next guest knows a thing or two about that he’s the Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Namath. He recently underwent a series of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) Treatments that doctors claim reversed damage he suffered from years of brutal hits in the NFL.

How would you describe these Hyperbaric Treatments and what did they do to you?
