Hyperbaric oxygen therapy treats medical conditions with 100% oxygen in a pressurized hyperbaric chamber. The patient lies or sits in the chamber. The oxygen then saturates the plasma in the blood, allowing oxygen to flow easily throughout the body and reach even areas that are injured or diseased, which typically receive less oxygen.
The mechanisms of hyperbaric oxygen therapy include stimulating and mobilizing stem cells, down-regulating inflammatory genes, up-regulating reproductive cells, and stimulating DNA. HBOT treatment also regrows tiny blood vessels, and stimulates the growth of new healthy cells in the brain, bones, skin, organs, and tissues. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can help with a range of conditions, including healing physical damage and acting as a highly effective anti-aging treatment.
