Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is an AMA and FDA approved medical treatment where a patient inhales 100% oxygen under pressure to speed and enhance the body's natural ability to heal.
Common uses include treatment of non-healing wounds, complications from radiation therapy, and others.
How does HBOT work?
Promotes Wound Healing
HBOT enhances the formation of new blood capillaries (by making more collagen)—by carrying more oxygen to areas that may not be getting enough oxygen. HBOT also reduces swelling of inflamed tissue and will fight wound infections.
Higher oxygen levels enhance white blood cells to kill harmful bacteria and viruses. HBOT will kill many harmful anaerobic microbes directly. HBOT will enhance the effect of certain antibiotics. Overall, there is an immune system strengthening effect.
Thus, HBOT can speed healing, promote tissue detoxification, and increase available energy.
