In recent studies, 78% of patients with Crohn's disease improved with HBOT, and 100% with ulcerative colitis were healed.
HBOT kills the spirochetes believed to cause Lyme disease. It also kills bacteria and heals damage done by bacteria.
HBOT often resolves migraines in one treatment, whereas patients with intervening neurological problems can require additional intervention.
