The Institute of Natural Health has added Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) to the list of available services for its patients, clients, and members. For those of you who are not familiar with the amazing benefits of HBOT, you are in luck. In this article we are going to discuss how this painless, non-invasive treatment can have a profound benefit on your health.
Let us begin by discussing what HBOT actually is. It is a therapy that involves gently increasing the atmospheric pressure to increase the amount of oxygen your blood can carry. This process can have a profound health benefit for many different conditions. Some of the effects of HBOT are to facilitate healing, stimulate new blood vessel formation, and increase stem cell production.
This may sound too good to be true, but there are some pretty complicated physics at work with HBOT. But rather than talk about things like Boyle’s or Dalton’s Law, let’s discuss the benefits of HBOT as a part of your health and wellness plan.
We all understand the importance of oxygen. Without oxygen we cease to be. So wouldn’t it be safe to say that if we were able to utilize more oxygen we wouldn’t just be, we could become. But what could we become? What if we could become healthier?
HBOT is not just for people who have a condition or disease. Healthy people choose to use HBOT as well. Most indicate their reason for utilizing the therapy to be a sense of increased energy and a feeling of youthfulness. You, like many others, may choose to implement HBOT as another part of your wellness regimen to keep you in optimal health.
For those of you who have a pressing health concern, hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been shown to be beneficial for numerous conditions. Some of these include: ADD/ADHD, autism, chronic fatigue, diabetes, fibromyalgia, headache, heart disease, Lyme disease, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, stroke and traumatic brain injury (concussion) to name a few.
In conclusion, HBOT is a painless, non-invasive, and effective treatment for many conditions. The increased oxygen facilitates healing, stimulates new blood vessels, and increases stem cell production to help improve overall health. All of these properties make HBOT the perfect addition to your health and/or wellness regimen.
