When oxygen is transferred into the body’s intracellular bank via the skin, it makes its way into the very bodily cellular fluid, which flows around all your cells, both in body and brain. Strongly boosted oxygenated cellular fluid therefore bathes everything, throughout your whole body, with is healing power. It reaches parts that other methods of oxygen delivery cannot reach. The body takes what it needs where it needs it. HBOT is non-prescriptive.
The hyperbaric method forces oxygen into the whole body, because it oxygenates the intracellular fluid. This is considerably different from merely taking in more oxygen via the lungs. A breathing mask delivering oxygen only increases oxygen levels by around 2% into the areas where blood freely flows as you inhale the gas. Where there are damaged, diseased or congested tissues, blood does not find an easy passage. Speedily delivering the vital life support ingredient through the skin into the cellular fluid bypasses all these obstacles by gentle but powerful force.
For this reason, therefore, it is easier to see how Hyperbaric treatments can aid and considerably speed up the recovery in cases of congestion, such as inflammation; swelling, burns, broken bones, torn ligaments and tendons, surgical sites, brain damage, diabetic skin, congestive heart disease, impact injuries, arthritis, abnormal cellular growth and so on. It will, of course, also help cases of lung oxygen deprivation, such as breathing issues, suffocation and smoke inhalation.
Even chronic congestive conditions such as arthritis in its various forms, fibromyalgia, ME, depression, asthma, heart complaints, early memory loss and eye function are helped. In addition, because the very nature of oxygen is repair and regeneration, it is a terrific all over anti-ageing therapy, which is why so many people in the public eye are rushing to enjoy an oxygen boost!
As well as rapid and enhanced recovery rates (especially important for chemotherapy patients), we as therapists see, and our clients are repeatedly reporting, increased energy levels, clarity of thought and generally more joy in their lives. This is, indeed, as near to a panacea as you can get! It is, indeed, a tremendously valuable universal remedy.
