Here's What I've Learned

New medical research reveals technology shown to be one of the most powerful treatments yet

From: Dr. AJ Ludlow
Stronglife Physiotherapy: Physical Therapy, Wellness, Rapid Recovery, Regenerative Medicine & Hyperbaric Oxygen provider in Provo, UT

There is a big difference between being alive and thriving.

To me thriving means living a capable, strong and exhilarating life. Thriving means little to no need for medications and doing our best to avoid debilitating illness, aches and pains. This can be a challenge as we age. Wouldn't you agree?

As the owner at Stronglife Physiotherapy I have a rare opportunity to bring revolutionary medical technology to help those working toward this kind of life. This therapy will help my patients have an unfair advantage to living a healthier life. As you'll see below, this treatment offers hope and healing for a wide range of conditions including many that don't have many other treatment options. 

Recently I discovered a truly revolutionary treatment that gives the body what it needs most to heal: oxygen. This makes it more readily available at 3x the normal rate delivered to the cells...

You see healing happens at a cellular level, and oxygen is like the body's currency, but it can budget only so much for repair work because so much is needed just to maintain life. 

But what if it wasn't limited?

As you can imagine, when there is a surplus of oxygen at a cellular level, everything improves, energy, focus, memory, brain function, recovery from injury, happiness, sleep...

And the body heals faster; damaged brain, heart, skin and muscle tissue, faster recovery from surgeries, and so much more! 

At great personal expense I am bringing this treatment to my patients here in Provo, UT, and for obvious selfish reasons...

Because I don't want to just be alive, I want to THRIVE and I hope you do too!

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)
"A Game Changer" For Professional Athletes & Actresses:

LeBron James

Maverick Carter, attributes a large part of LeBron’s success to his focus on physical maintenance and recovery in part through hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Making it possible to keep playing hard well into his 30's.

Part of LeBron’s routine involves regular HBOT therapy, a special diet, and personal training sessions. LeBron has posted Instagram stories sharing with fans that he enjoys napping during his HBOT sessions which typically last about 90 minutes.

Michael Phelps

Before the 2021 Olympics, Michael Phelps started sleeping in a hyperbaric chamber as part of his recovery routine. Thanks to his ability to improve recovery time, Phelps surpassed the previous record holder (Soviet artistic gymnast Larisa Latynina) by 10 medals.

In a 2012 interview, Phelps shared that recovery is, “something that is so important to me now being older. I don’t recover as fast as I used to.”

Joe Namath

Namath’s started using HBOT to address his symptoms of cognitive decline after multiple concussions. In an interview on The Howard Stern Show, Joe Namath said he “had a minimum of 5” concussions and that he had watched fellow football players slowly lose their memory.

After 40 sessions, Namath shared that a second SPECT scan showed the “dark cells started to lighten up a bit,” meaning blood flow was returning to those regions of his brain. Namath continued with his HBOT treatment and after 120 total treatment sessions, his SPECT scans were normal. “My brain is healthy!” Namath told Stern.

Uma Thurman

At age 51, Uma Thurman doesn't look a day over 30. Here she is pictured in 2020 looking as young and vibrant as ever. 

Hyperbaric oxygen plays a huge role in anti-aging. Studies show it reduces wrinkles, improves skin texture, enhances skin elasticity, and stimulates collagen production so you can keep a more youthful appearance.

Cameron Diaz

At 49 years old, Cameron Diaz, talks about how aging is not something to fear, but to embrace,  and wrote the book on aging,  The Longevity Book: The Science of Aging, the Biology of Strength, and the Privilege of Time. She talks about how we should look at aging as a privilege and something we should celebrate (especially coming from someone with no serious health problems). Cameron Diaz uses hyperbaric oxygen to feel good (and look great) as she ages so she can be capable and strong at any age.

Jennifer Anniston

At age 52, Jennifer Aniston is still in incredible shape and has impeccable skin tone. To battle aging and a rigorous work life, she works out almost every day of the week. Working out becomes harder as we age, exercise recovery often means more muscle soreness. Sore joints, painful muscles, and injuries can make exercise difficult, if not impossible. Jennifer Aniston keeps her shape by preventing soreness and injury with hyperbaric oxygen therapy. 

It's time to experience the Research-Backed healing and recovery that HBOT can provide!

What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (BHOT) at Stronglife Physiotherapy in Provo Utah

Oxygen in the body is fuel for the cells, it's like money, the body only has a limited amount to spend to heal, and regenerate healthy tissue. With Hyperbaric Oxygen, it provides 3x the oxygen for the body to use to repair, heal and regenerate. So, it works by boosting the human body’s remarkable capabilities of self-healing.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy does this by concentrating oxygen through pressure, so the oxygen can completely dissolve into your blood plasma. So it is able to reach deep within the cells to fuel them at 3x the normal level, giving them a HUGE boost to repair themselves.

Oxygen is also a natural anti-inflammatory. Inflammation, (chronic inflammation) even at low levels, leads to many health conditions and diseases. Oxygen is one of the main anti-inflammatories our body uses to heal injury.

Provo's Premier Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Provider For Unprecedented Recovery and healing for the following conditions:

COVID Recovery, Long term Effects

HBOT helps alleviate long term symptoms of COVID, including brain fog, fatigue, shortness of breath, joint pain, concentration, muscle pain, headaches, depression, anxiety and sleep problems.

  • This virus is especially dangerous for the elderly and those with underlying conditions. Those who survive COVID sometimes have long-lingering side effects.. Recovery from these symptoms can take months or years, but hyperbaric oxygen can speed up that recovery.
  • ​Doctors suggest that the long-term effects of COVID are due to an overactive immune system from inflammation in the organs. With hyperbaric therapy, anti-inflammatory genes are up-regulated as well as genes that stimulate growth, healing, and prevent cell death.
  • ​Many hospitals are utilizing hyperbaric oxygen to get oxygen into the cells, instead of ventilators, but many insurances still won't cover it. Hyperbaric does not pose the same risks of tissue damage, dependency and inflammation caused by ventilators.

autism & ADD/ADHD

Hyperbaric has been shown to help Autism, ADD & ADHD patients with improved focus, communication, cognition, and helps trigger a parasympathetic response in the autonomic nervous system calming the body and brain making it easier for patients to relax and sleep. 

  • ​After just a few treatments, children and adults alike feel more able to focus, more able to communicate clearly, and more at peace overall
  • College students have come in for treatments before a big exam, even to study in the chamber
  • Increased oxygen in the brain lead to the production of neurotransmitters that are lacking in ADHD brains.
  • ​ Hyperbaric therapy has been clinically proven to trigger a parasympathetic response in the autonomic nervous system, which means it calms the body from a stress response to a restful and restorative state. 
  • ​Many patients report that treatment in a hyperbaric chamber immediately calms their bodies and brains, making it easier for them to relax and sleep. 
  • ​Long-term reports show that continued treatments reduce anxiety, inattentiveness and mood swings.
  • ​Often parents accompany their children in the chamber, read or watch a movie on a tablet together.

Alzheimers & Dementia

Hyperbaric showed improvement in cognition, cerebral blood flow and information processing speed, slowing the progression or Alzheimers and Dementia patients so patients retain more mental clarity and ability longer.

  • Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is gaining momentum as a potential treatment against the progression of the disease
  • ​A clinical trial of hyperbaric oxygen therapy for 3 months, showed improvement cognition, cerebral blood flow and information processing speed.
  • Dr. Paul Harch's treatment reported, “An 8-week course of HBOT reversed the patient’s symptomatic decline.” 
  • An increase of oxygen to the brain reducing inflammation caused by amyloid plaques and tangles, producing new blood vessels throughout the brain (angiogenesis) and the therapy’s ability to suppress or ignite up to 8,101 genes.
  • ​Hyperbarics has also been shown to support the brain in producing new connections of neurons in damaged areas.

Anti-Aging

Hyperbaric is used by many in Hollywood, providing a no-needle face lift by reducing wrinkles, improving skin texture, elasticity and stimulating collagen production so patients keep a more youthful appearance. HBOT also improves energy, sleep quality, serotonin production, and immune response helping patients to feel more healthy, young and vibrant.

  • ​Cell damage and cell death account for skin aging and appearance, HBOT assists in cell repair and promotes the growth of new cells.
  • ​ Studies have shown that hyperbaric therapy can help increase a person’s energy, improve their quality of sleep, increase the rate of serotonin production, and lengthen their telomeres so they don't "feel old anymore"
  • HBOT supports the immune system, which helps prevent illness in an aging patient. 
  • ​Hyperbaric therapy up-regulates anti-inflammatory genes and down-regulates inflammatory genes, so a patient may experience less physical pain as they age.
  • ​Studies show it induces a regenerative affect in the body
  • ​Studies indicate HBOT increases telemere length, and clearance of senescent cells
  • ​Studies show it improves cognition, attention, focus, information processing speed and executive functions

autoimmune diseases

Hyperbaric has been shown to reduce the pain, inflammation, and minimize flare-ups, then improve mental clarity, sleep, overall wellbeing, and digestion in many auto-immune diseases.

  • Hyperbaric therapy has been shown to reduce the pain and inflammation associated with arthritis and other chronic pain disorders by fighting the chronic inflammation caused by the overactive immune system
  • In patients with rheumatoid arthritis under HBT therapy, the SOD activity was increased, whereas lipoperoxide values decreased. 
  • ​ADs associated with infection may be treated with HBOT because the pressure and oxygen can reach deep into tissues and kill off the invading bacteria 
  • ​Long-term treatments decrease the intensity of flare ups as well as prolong the amount of time between the flare ups. 
  • ​Flooding the body with oxygen reduces inflammation, decreases pain and supports the immune system. 
  • ​Some patients have seen their Autoimmune Disorders go into remission after adding HBOT to their regimens. 
  • ​Many patients also report improved mental clarity, sleep, overall wellbeing, digestion and pain levels.
  • ​Studies show significant radiological, and biochemical improvement in Chrohns disease.
  • Significant muscle strength, movement and tendon​ reflexes restored in Guillan Barre Syndrome.
  • ​Increases life span of Lupus patients
  • ​With colitis, it helped decrease bathroom breaks to only 2 a day, allowing patients to be are able to leave the house for the first time in years
  • ​Helped with acute liver injury, fibrosis and cancer.

Allergies

Hyperbaric has been shown to eliminate seasonal allergies by reduces the inflammation response keeping airways and nasal pathways open. HBOT reduces sinus pressure, swelling in the lungs,  itchiness and helps direct toxins including histamine and mycotoxins for elimination.

  • The high levels of oxygen provided with each treatment reduce the inflammatory process for allergy and asthma sufferers, allowing the body to heal itself.
  • Sufferers of seasonal allergies can enjoy life during months with high pollen counts by controlling the inflammation of their nasal passages and airways with hyperbaric therapy
  • The combination of increased pressure and oxygen helps with the symptoms triggered by the inflammatory process during an allergic reaction. 
  • ​Many patients have reported a reduction in sinus pressure, swelling in lungs and other affected areas, brain fog, pain, redness, and itchiness.
  • ​ Hyperbarics has also been shown to help direct toxins, including histamine and mycotoxins, out of tissues towards detoxification pathways for elimination. 
  • ​Evidence has claimed that long-term use of hyperbaric therapy may eliminate seasonal allergies completely for some patients.

cancer & Radiation Damage

Hyperbaric makes cancer cells easier to kill with chemo or radiation because they thrive in oxygen poor environments, plus it heals post-radiation damage inside the burned tissues and organs. HBOT is utilized by oncology wards all over the world. HBOT also helps relieve pain, increase appetite, and boosts energy levels in cancer patients.

  • Many patients treated with chemo or radiation suffer extreme symptoms such as weight loss, hair loss, digestive issues, extreme pain, fatigue, immune suppression, immobility and much more.
  • ​Unfortunately, a large portion of cancer deaths are related to the side effects from the treatments.
  • ​Cancerous cells are anaerobic, meaning they thrive in oxygen-poor environments. Research is showing that flooding cancer cells with oxygen can make them easier to kill with chemo or radiation
  • The pressure of hyperbaric therapy can help push chemo through the body faster, leaving less time for healthy tissue to be poisoned. 
  • ​Many published studies are showing hyperbaric therapy’s ability to heal post-radiation damage inside the burned tissues and organs as well. 
  • ​Many patients report that their time in the chamber helps relieve pain, increase appetite, and boosts energy levels.
  • ​The high doses of radiation used to kill cancer cells in cancer patients can still cause long-term damage to nearby healthy cells in some patients. 
  • Many radiation patients still suffer from burns, tissue death, inflammation, infections and other side effects as a result of their treatments.
  • Hyperbaric therapy for radiation damage is well studied and commonly utilized in oncology wards all over the world. Radionecrosis (tissue death) has been successfully treated and documented, as well as internal and external burns, infections and open wounds. 
  • ​Hyperbaric therapy positively affects the genes involved in inflammation control and tissue repair. Anecdotes and testimonials show that some patients experience recovery even years after their initial treatment and injuries.

cerebral palsy

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy increases oxygen to the brain, which is the root cause of CP, improving the overall quality of the cells and alleviating CP symptoms. Helping CP patients progress toward improved fine motor skills.

  • There have been numerous studies regarding the use of hyperbarics for CP. One study in particular found that subjects saw improvements in fine motor skills, brain function and neuroplasticity at 3 different dosage levels (1.3 ATA, 1.5 ATA and 2.4 ATA). It can be presumed that mild hyperbaric therapy can be an effective modality in treating CP.
  • ​Recent studies have shown that hyperbaric therapy can alleviate the symptoms of CP. 
  • ​Anoxia (the lack of oxygen) to the brain is at the root of many of these symptoms and issues. 
  • ​Hyperbaric therapy has been shown to increase the levels of oxygen in the tissues of the body, including the brain. 
  • ​Even mild pressures can create an environment that allows oxygen to more easily pass through the blood-brain barrier, helping to reduce inflammation and improving the overall quality of the cells.
  • ​Cerebral Palsy is considered a form of traumatic brain injury, you can scroll down to read more about hyperbarics and TBIs

detoxification

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy pushes toxins out of the tissues and toward excretion. It also repairs damage to the cells. 

  • Time spent in the hyperbaric chamber can help bring the nervous system back to a parasympathetic response, which gives the body permission to rest, digest, detoxify, re-balance and heal.
  • ​When the body is under pressure, it’s receiving more bio-available oxygen. 
  • ​All of that incoming oxygen and pressure helps push toxins out of tissues and towards detox pathways. Most will be passed through the kidneys and output as urine (which is why we always encourage staying very hydrated after a session), but some will find their way out through the skin as sweat and through the GI tract as stool. 
  • ​Hyperbaric therapy is proving to be an excellent modality for emotional toxicity disorders like depression, anxiety disorders and PTSD. 
  • ​Research is showing that by bringing more oxygen to the brain, areas that have gone dormant are essentially being repaired.

Diabetes & neuropathy 

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy stimulates angiogenesis-the creation of new blood vessels and improved circulation for tissue that has been damaged, even a complete cessation of neuropathy. Helping diabetic and neuropathy patients avoid amputation.

  • Studies have shown that extensive treatments can produce new blood vessels, a process called angiogenesis.
  • ​ By creating new routes for blood to flow through, the patient can experience better circulation, especially to limbs that have been affected by diabetic induced tissue damage. 
  • ​Many patients have reported a reduction or complete cessation of neuropathy. 
  • ​Increased circulation may also prevent the need for limb removal in patients with severe diabetic ulcers. 
  • ​Hyperbarics has been extensively studied for its healing potential of slow or non-healing wounds, especially in diabetes.

Depression

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been proven to alleviate depression by helping the body to release more "feel good" hormones, improve sleep and regulate stress. It also helps patients with improved mental clarity by reducing fatigue, brain fog, lethargy, negative thoughts, mood swings, even suicidal thoughts and body aches. 

  • Many patients have fluctuations of depressive episodes in which they have fatigue, brain fog, body aches, lethargy, negative thoughts, mood swings, poor eating habits and more. For some, these episodes can be severe enough to negatively impact daily life.
  • ​Hyperbaric can help by positively affecting 8,101 genes, reduces inflammation and pain, triggers the release of “feel-good” hormones and neurotransmitters, improves sleep quality, regulates stress better (the sympathetic nervous dominance of “fight or flight”)
  • Studies includes depression from spinal cord injury, brain injury, post stroke, anxiety, abuse and even suicidal thoughts with Veterans and PTSD.

Diabetic Ulcers & wound healing 

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy restores 3x the oxygen to damaged tissues so the cells can repair themselves instead of becoming infected. Hyperbaric is extensively used in hospitals for wound care and burn victims because it accelerates healing so well.

  • ​Ulcer development is often due to a combination of diabetic neuropathy and peripheral vascular disease, which decreases the supply of oxygen to the affected extremity. 
  • ​Hyperbaric oxygen therapy increases the amount of oxygen dissolved in the plasma, allowing tissues to achieve levels of oxygenation that would otherwise be impossible.
  • ​By getting the area of the wound highly oxygenated, the cells can repair themselves at an accelerated rate. The oxygen can also help prevent the wound from becoming infected.

fibromyalgia

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy reduces the muscle pain, and reduces inflammation within the fascia that covers the entire body that makes the nerves so sensitive. Making it possible for fibromyalgia patients to live a normal life.

  • Hyperbaric therapy has a positive effect on the symptoms of fibromyalgia, including muscle pain and tender points.
  • ​More research has finally pinpointed inflammatory markers within an overlooked area, the fascia that is causing the daily pain. According to John Hopkins, “Fascia is a thin casing of connective tissue that surrounds and holds every organ, blood vessel, bone, nerve fiber and muscle in place. The tissue does more than provide internal structure; fascia has nerves that make it almost as sensitive as skin.” Inflammation within the fascia combined with sensitized nerves begins to paint a more clear picture of the pathology of fibromyalgia.
  • ​Hyperbaric therapy has been proven to decrease inflammation and influence the genes responsible for releasing hormones associated with positive wellbeing. 
  • ​Research has shown that many patients experience a decrease in pain severity and improvements in sleep, mood and quality of life. 
  • ​Many fibromyalgia patients have returned to their jobs and physical hobbies during their hyperbaric treatment regimens.

heart disease & stroke

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy accelerates the repair of damaged heart and brain tissue, improves circulation, even the growth of new blood vessels. It helps stoke patients to regain function much faster, far surpassing what their doctor thought possible, even years after the stroke or heart attack!

  • Shown statistically significant improvements in all memory measures and indicate that it can lead to significant neurological improvements in post-stroke patients even at chronic late stages.1,2
  • Hyperbaric therapy infuses the body with oxygen, increasing levels up to 1,000% in body tissues.
  • ​The increased oxygen levels in blood and plasma oxygenate tissues that have been starved, inducing such healing processes as the proliferation of fibroblasts and increased angiogenesis. 
  • ​Fibroblasts are progenitor cells that promote connective tissue growth, and angiogenesis is the formation of new blood vessels. 
  • ​This method of improving oxygenation and healing processes supports a reduction in the damage suffered in heart disease and possible healing of damaged tissues.

inflammation

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is unparralelled in reducing inflammation which is at the heart of many diseases including auto-immune diseases. It can reduce pain and inflammation minimizing or eliminating migraines, debilitating fatigue, muscle and joint pain, and swelling. It accelerates healing after an injury and makes it possible for chronic pain patients to live a comfortable life. 

  • Reduces inflammation from all kinds of things including the ingestion or inhalation of a toxic chemical, an audio blast insult to the ears, an infection, an immune response, an allergic reaction, a low oxygen event (stroke, near-drowning, etc), or any event that causes pain, redness, or swelling internally or externally.
  • ​Proven to reduce tissue damage and infection expansion.
  • In many conditions, especially autoimmune diseases and traumatic brain injuries, the inflammatory process is prolonged or overactive causing chronic symptoms. Common symptoms of chronic inflammation include: fever, debilitating fatigue, muscle and joint pain, skin that is hot to the touch, loss of mobility/function in the affected area, swelling, and depression.
  • ​Increased pressure, increased oxygen, and the combination of the two through hyperbaric therapy have been shown to improve the expression of over 8,000 different genes: that’s about 40% of the entire human genome. 
  • With hyperbaric therapy, anti-inflammatory genes are upregulated as well as genes that stimulate growth, healing, and prevent cell death. Simultaneously, genes which trigger the inflammatory process are downregulated. If a patient can receive hyperbaric therapy immediately following an injury, the inflammatory process can be bypassed while still promoting quick healing and rebuilding of the damaged tissues.

Lyme Disease

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is one of the only successful treatments that works to help patients with Lyme disease because it blasts the bacteria with oxygen, and exposes it so it is treated more easily, and pushes the endotoxins out of the body.

  • Lyme bacteria are anaerobic, meaning they thrive in oxygen-depleted environments. 
  • ​Not only can the pressure potentially blast their hiding places within biofilm apart to expose the infection for treatment, it can also help push the leftover endotoxins out of the bloodstream and tissues out to the detoxification organs for elimination.
  • ​Hyperbaric oxygen has been shown to help alleviate the uncomfortable side-effects of Lyme die-off (Herxing) as the infection is treated thanks to its anti-inflammatory properties.

migraines

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy reduces pain caused by inflammation from enlarged or dilated blood vessel in the brain. It also helps the body regulate hormones and stress, improves sleep quality, and reduces muscle pain from tension headaches.

  • The increased pressure from a treatment may act similarly to migraine medications by causing vasoconstriction in the brain, stopping the excessive blood flow thought to trigger symptoms. 
  • Enlarged or dilated blood vessels in the brain are a common trigger for headaches and migraines. Patients may experience more frequent or intense migraines when they are stressed, overexert themselves, eat certain foods, or when barometric pressure changes occur in the area they live. Science has found that dysfunction in hormones and neurotransmitters may also play a role in the occurrence of migraines.
  • hyperbaric therapy’s proven effectiveness at positively influencing 8,101 genes may play a role in balancing inflammation and hormone regulation within the brain, potentially lessening migraine occurrences.

mold illness

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy helps the body flush out the mold toxins and enhances the treatment of antibiotics. It also helps the patient have less pain throughout the body and alleviates the symptoms of mold illness like brain fog, body aches, congestion and difficulty breathing.

  • Severe mold toxicity can be deadly especially because it often overlooked, and can stay in the system even after the person leaves the moldy environment. Symptoms include brain fog, ADHD-like symptoms, whole body aches, upper respiratory congestion and infections, mood swings, pain in the ears, hair loss and difficult breathing.
  • ​HBOT can stimulate superoxide dismutase, an important antioxidant, which can help the body flush out the mycotoxins left in the tissues from mold spores. 
  • ​HBOT can also help in the treatment of mold infection by enhancing white blood cell action and enhancing the outcome of antibiotics. 
  • ​The anti-inflammatory power of being in the hyperbaric chamber can help reduce the painful symptoms in the ears, lungs, respiratory tract and in the muscles.

pre & post surgery

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy accelerates healing by up to 75% post surgery, with less swelling, bruising, and scar tissue helping patients get back on their feet faster.

  • Reconstruction Surgery and Plastic Surgery in a healthy person may heal up to 75% faster using HBT before and after surgery. 
  • ​Reduced pain, less scarring, and less recovery time for the patient, as well as fewer infections, have been reported. 
  • ​Patients can return to work faster, with less bruising and/or swelling.
  • ​Before surgery, a patient may have a few hyperbaric treatments to help boost their immune system and stimulate stem cell growth in preparation for infection prevention and tissue repair. 
  • ​Treatments immediately following surgical procedures have been shown to boost collagen levels and positively influence anti-inflammatory and tissue repair genes. 
  • ​This results in faster healing time (up to 60% faster) with less inflammation, scar tissue and bruising. 
  • ​Hyperbaric therapy has been studied extensively for its ability to treat open wounds quickly, helping get patients back on their feet much faster with few complications.

Traumatic Brain Injury & Concussion 

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is essential to get high levels of oxygen to the damaged tissues immediately after an injury, and shows huge improvements in brain function even years later. It increases blood flow, and reduces inflammation to the brain which can sometimes be chronic cutting off blood flow to parts of the brain. There are hundreds of stories of TBI & concussion patients with unprecedented improvements in function, from coming out of coma's to learning how to talk and eat again even when there was little hope that they ever would.

  • Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy has been utilized for both emergency treatment immediately following a traumatic brain injury and for treatment for the long-term symptoms of an old injury.
  • Increased oxygen to the brain may reduce residual neuroinflammation and allow for more blood flow to the damaged tissues.
  • Once the bleeding is controlled and scar tissue is formed, the inflammation is supposed to recede. Unfortunately, it is common for inflammation within the brain to become chronic. When the brain swells, pressure builds on top of blood vessels and it becomes difficult for the blood to flow through the injured areas. This results in decreased oxygen and nutrients to the affected area. 
  • Research from Dr. Paul Harch and others have shown that there is no time limitation on repairing damaged brain tissue. Patients have reported regaining full mobility and cognition after a series of hyperbaric treatments.

Chronic Stress, PTSD & Fatigue

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy helps the body regulate stress hormones to bring the body back into a balanced state. So patients have more energy. When left unchecked, high levels of stress lead to a host of health problems, a weakened immune system, adrenal fatigue and pain. HBOT creates a state of relaxation, improving focus, sleep quality, mental clarity, even shown to help PTSD patients have a full recovery!

  • Combat veterans and abuse victims, single parents, financially struggling people, students, and people with high stress jobs don't realize how much stress affects health. Chronic stress causes insomnia, digestion issues, autoimmune disease, frequent illness, slow healing, heart disease, even cancer
  • ​With Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, studies have confirmed positive responses for these patients, sometimes full recovery. Increasing oxygen levels means more food for the cells as well. Mitochondria can produce adequate ATP to correct or replace damaged cells and tissues. Once the brain is able to stop sensing a constant threat, healing may take place everywhere, even in areas the patient doesn’t expect: fatigue, muscle or joint pain, dysfunctional immune system and much more.
  • ​Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can create a state of relaxation and help regulate hormones to bring the body back into a balanced state.
  • Researchers can watch in real time as patients switch from “fight or flight” over to “rest and digest” during a hyperbaric treatment. 
  • ​On a larger scale, much research has been done on patients with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and hyperbarics. Many studies have confirmed positive responses for these patients, sometimes full recovery.
  • ​ Increasing oxygen levels means more food for the cells as well. Mitochondria can produce adequate ATP to correct or replace damaged cells and tissues. Once the brain is able to stop sensing a constant threat, healing may take place everywhere, even in areas the patient doesn’t expect: fatigue, muscle or joint pain, dysfunctional immune system and much more.
  • ​Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy has been studied on patients with sympathetic dominance using heart rate variability (HRV) monitoring. This research has shown that hyperbarics can help calm the ANS and cause the signals from the hypothalamus to change from a sympathetic response to a parasympathetic response. Researchers can watch in real time as patients switch from “fight or flight” over to “rest and digest” during a hyperbaric treatment. 

Training, Exercise Recovery & sports injuries

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is used by professional athletes for faster recovery time of sore muscles and injury, as well as increased mobility, strength and stamina.

HBOT is an approved performance enhancement, even injury prevention.  HBOT improves mental clarity, focus, and sleep. HBOT improves circulation, getting the blood flow to the muscles and lungs to shatter PR's and is very successful at treating concussion symptoms. Many athletes have attributed their success to HBOT: Ronaldo, Messi, Phil Heath, Novak Djokovic, Lebron James, Tiger Woods, Gabriel Jesus and Mo Salah to name a few, along with the NFL, NBA, UFC, MMA, UEFA and more.

  • Health is the new wealth, and investing in workout recovery is in demand more than ever.
  • ​Professional and amateur athletes alike utilize hyperbaric oxygen therapy for performance enhancement, fast injury healing, sore muscle recovery, and injury prevention. 
  • ​Enhanced Physical Performance, improved mental clarity and sleep, decrease soreness and inflammation and help athletes have more energy
  • ​shorten the recovery time required after a workout. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy improves circulation and is often used in conjunction with physical therapy to treat chronic muscle pain or acute injuries. HBOT allows oxygen to penetrate 3x deeper into damaged tissue, which can drastically speed-up healing and recovery times. In addition, this therapy has garnered attention as a way to help people suffering from post concussion syndrome, something that is common among professional athletes.
  • ​Dr. Dan Rossignol, MD has studied hyperbarics’ ability to lower systemic inflammation and has compared 1 hour of treatment to taking 12,000mg of Motrin without the toxic side effects. 
  • ​HBOT can increase circulation and stimulate the growth of new blood vessels, which may provide extra fuel to overworked lungs and muscles. 
  • ​Hyperbaric therapy has also been shown to slow down and reverse inflammation and damage to injured tissues, including the brain, making it a great addition to concussion protocols. 

What is it like to do Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

During hyperbaric oxygen therapy, patients lie down within a hyperbaric chamber that is pressurized to 3x the level in the Earth’s atmosphere and simply relax. During this time, patients are able to read, listen to music, watch a movie, or take a nap. There is no downtime, so they can return to their normal activities immediately afterward.
