There are 6 primary things that HBOT does.


1) HBO is a vaso-constrictor, it therefore reduces edema.  Reduction is swelling and inflamation often occurs after the very first treatment.

2) HBOT promotes neovascularization. When oxygen levels are increased fibroblasts divide producing more collagen and new capillaries.

3) HBO enhances the killing power and activity of white blood cells (leukocytes) and activates the immune system.

4) HBO kills anaerobic bacteria.  HBOT is effective in fighting many infections.  It is bacteriostatic against anaerobes andstops exo-toxin production.

5) HBO more rapidly heals vaso-deficient, poorly perfused tissue.  The tissue that heals the slowest is that which has the least blood supply such as the "white tissue" in the body.  Tendons, ligaments, meniscus in the joints, spinal discs, bones and even brain tissues are all capillary deficient and each exhibit more rapid repair when benefitted by HBOT.

6) HBO regenerates damaged nervous system cells.  HBOT neutralizes the toxic cellular by-products and can return damaged neurons to prior activity.


    Not all doctors will recommend Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy but not because it isn’t beneficial.  They simply have no training or knowledge of the documented results in treating serious problems such as strokes, heart attacks, infections, burns, difficult wounds that won’t heal, diabetes, toxins and poisoning, Multiple Sclerosis and AIDS, lessening the damage done from chemo and radiation therapy, to name just a few.  And...  the list keeps growing as the benefits become apparent.  In fact, any disease that is ischemic (lack of tissue Oxygen) in nature, or has a concurring edema (tissue or nerve swelling) will see a benefit from HBOT.
