How Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Helps in Autism Treatment

HBOT for Autism

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, often abbreviated as HBOT, is a treatment process that leverages the benefits of oxygen to treat a number of medical conditions. In this method, a patient goes into a chamber, called a hyperbaric chamber. The atmospheric pressure inside this chamber is set above that of sea level so that maximum amount of oxygen can be delivered to the damaged tissues. Moreover, the increase in pressure allows for the oxygen to exponentially mix into the fluids of the blood of an individual. HBOT therapy also  allows higher absorption…

All That You Ever Needed To Know About Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

HBOT News

Let’s dissect the name first. Hyper meaning more and baric meaning pressure, that is how the therapy works. Increased pressure of the oxygen we breathe in signals the DNA in out cells to trigger healing activities that our body fails to perform under normal conditions. Oxygen and sugar is converted into cell-usable gasoline by the tiny organelles in our cell called mitochondria and the process is named cellular respiration. This however, is an extremely delicate process and even a hair thin alteration in the routine can knock the mitochondria off…
