What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy involves breathing 100% oxygen while pressurising the body to pressures greater than normal.

The process is achieved inside a HBOT chamber within which the patient breathes 100% oxygen while the pressure inside the chamber is gradually increased. Breathing oxygen under pressure allows oxygen to be dissolved into plasma portion of the blood.

Under normal conditions, plasma does not carry oxygen, that is left to the red blood cell and haemoglobin. Dissolving oxygen into plasma allows it to carry oxygen at least four times further into the body’s tissues which results in a much higher concentration of oxygen within the body – as much as 1,200% higher!

What are the benefits?

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is used to treat several medical conditions. And medical institutions use it in different ways. Your doctor may suggest hyperbaric oxygen therapy if you have one of the following conditions:

  • Severe anaemia
  • Gangrene
  • Brain abscess
  • Infection of skin or bone that causes tissue death
  • Bubbles of air in your blood vessels (arterial gas embolism)
  • Diabetic related issues such as non-healing wounds and foot ulcers
  • Burns
  • Radiation injury
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Dementia, alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s
  • Crushing injury
  • Skin graft or skin flap at risk of tissue death
  • Vision loss, sudden and painless
  • Decompression sickness
  • Deafness, sudden
  • Stroke related issues
  • Long covid
  • Anxiety, depression and PTSD
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Dermatology issues such as eczema, acne and psoriasis
  • Autism
  • Pre & post surgery treatment
  • Arthritis

How does it work?

Under normal conditions, the air we breathe contains a mixture of gases, of which only about 21% is oxygen. This is generally sufficient for the body’s basic functions in those with normal lungs. However, elevating the oxygen level in the body creates a whole cascade of benefits both in the immediate short term as well as more long term (if done enough times). It is this cascade of benefits that enhances and accelerates the body’s ability to repair itself, generate energy, and create an environment in which inflammation is suppressed and regenerative healing is promoted.

The healing power of HBOT can help those struggling with a variety of diseases as well as those seeking to simply optimise their health. HBOT improves the immune system by weakening infection-causing bacteria. It also increases the body’s natural antioxidants and free radical scavengers, which increases the ability to fight disease and infection. It can also synergise with certain antibiotics improving their efficacy.

Treatment, with our state of the art HBOT, has the power to increase stem cells in circulation eight-fold, these stems cells already exist in the body and have the unique ability to differentiate into any type of tissue, making them a valuable tool for regeneration and healing.
