Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Articles

Dr. Grace Johnstone sits down with Dr. Suzy Harris of Cedar Wood Natural Health Center to talk about the many ways Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapies are being used to help people with chronic issues of inflammation, pain, Lyme and tick borne Illnesses, head injury, stroke recovery and immune system boosting. Listen to their conversation on the Next Seven Podcast here.   .

Podcast – Dr. Grace Johnstone and HBOT

In addition to being a potent virucidal, HBOT is a good treatment option for Covid patients, and here’s why: Covid-19 creates inflammation in the lung itself, preventing O2 from reaching the bloodstream and resulting in organ hypoxia and, in some cases, organ failure. Mechanical ventilation forces air/oxygen into the lungs, but it is not particularly effective at forcing O2 into the bloodstream. Mechanical ventilation is marginal at resolving the hypoxia it seeks to treat and forced ventilation causes further stress to the lungs. The mortality rate among ventilated patients is 50%. The increased pressure that a hyperbaric oxygen chamber produces oxygenates the fluid of the body directly, without relying on the blood supply. This relieves organ hypoxia much more quickly without stressing lung tissue. And, because high levels of O2 are a potent anti-inflammatory, HBOT also addresses the inflammation in the lungs themselves, which is what is preventing oxygen from reaching the bloodstream in the first place. Dr. Paul Harch notes that in addition to lowering the mortality rate, HBOT averts mechanical ventilation of patients and shortens hospital stays. https://youtu.be/V96E6O7I9Es The other issues that are of concern with Covid-19 are the ensuing cytokine storm, and issues with coagulation in the […]

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is one of the safest medical treatments available and more than 30,000 research studies support its use for a wide array of health conditions HBOT involves breathing oxygen in a pressurized chamber. HBOT can be effective in treating resistant infections such as Lyme disease and mold, brain injuries and concussions, cognitive decline, non-healing wounds and inflammatory conditions ranging from arthritis to ulcerative colitis.
