HBOT, or Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy employs the therapeutic use of oxygen to treat and heal damaged tissues that have undergone substantial wear-and-tear due to oxygen deprivation. This treatment significantly alters the DNA of the cells and structure of surrounding tissues, thereby improving health conditions. Not only did this therapy yield positive results when used on autistic children, it also offers other health benefits.
Health Management and anti-aging therapy
This therapy is effective for treating ailments which develop with age and helps in improving blood circulation, and enhances the body’s immunity. It is useful for treating patients with stroke, brain injury, Alzheimer’s disease and diabetes.
Autism and Childhood Epilepsy
HBOT Therapy improves oxygen circulation in the cerebral cavity and reduces edema. Regular HBOT therapy will show a marked improvement in children prone to having epileptic fits and abnormalities caused by autism.
HBOT Therapy is also useful when it comes to treating children with cerebral palsy. This condition is the result of premature birth and insufficient oxygen circulation. HBOT therapy will help to improve the level of oxygen in the body as inhalation of pure oxygen under increased atmospheric pressure will help the gas to get dissolved in tissues and plasma, along with the blood.
Sudeck’s Syndrome and RSD
Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome (RSD), also known as Sudeck’s Syndrome, is a disease of nerve fibers which prevents blood flow to organs and tissues. This is a dangerous condition requiring intense medication. Patients experience intense chronic pains which results in immobility. HBOT therapy assists in repairing these fibers.
Diabetes can cause damage to peripheral nerve tissues and inhibits peripheral circulation that lengthens the time required for damaged wounds to heal. By undergoing HBOT Therapy, patients can be successfully relieved of festering wounds, thereby reducing the necessity of amputation.
HBOT Therapy offers relief to patients suffering from a wide range of diseases. Although, most commonly known for the positive results it has delivered in the treatment of autistic children, HBOT therapy is a good treatment option for people suffering from conditions caused by deficient blood flow to body tissues.
