Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)
Introduction to Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
We all have to-do lists. Things we need to fix. Things we need to get done. In the same way, our bodies also have a to-do list. The body is constantly making new cells, repairing damage caused by germs and toxins, balancing hormone and chemical levels, and generally doing everything it can to keep you happy and healthy
But when our bodies don’t have the resources they need to complete all of these tasks, and when toxins or injuries or pathogens cause our to-do list to get longer and longer, disease and disability will begin to occur. And we can quickly go from happy and healthy to unhappy and unhealthy. In order to give the body more resources to heal and recover, there are many good nutrients that we can make sure we are getting by changing our diet and supplementing if necessary.
However, do you know which nutrient is most important of all? The answer is O2, or oxygen.
More than any food… more than even water itself… oxygen is the one nutrient that your body needs more than all others. Usually we don’t think of oxygen as a nutrient, but in reality, it is the most fundamental nutrient that we need for healing and for life itself.
So, how does hyperbaric oxygen help the body heal itself? The short answer is that hyperbaric oxygen gives the body more resources to do all the things on its to-do list. Hyperbaric Oxygen has been shown to:
- Destroy harmful bacteria
- Decrease inflammation
- Produce new collagen
- Increase white blood cells
- Regenerate bone
- Stimulate capillary growth
- Strengthen the immune system
- Help mitochondrial function
And perhaps most amazing of all, it even creates new stem cells in the body. After 40 sessions of hyperbaric oxygen, stem cell production increases all the way to 800%. Your body turns these stem cells into whatever cells that it needs, facilitating healing rapidly and naturally.
