Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Every cell in the human body needs oxygen to survive.  Cells need oxygen to cause the chemical reaction necessary to make energy.  Nothing is going anywhere without the transfer of oxygen from the lungs into the blood steam and then into individual cells. Oxygen also helps stimulate stem cell production, which serve the body as a sort of internal repair system. When a stem cell divides, each new cell has the potential either to remain a stem cell or become another type of cell with more specialized function, such as a muscle cell, a red blood cell or a brain cell.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy helps with Opioid Addiction Last Updated on 2017-08-30 15:07:31 prweb  |  Wednesday, August 30th 2017 Based on worldwide research and decades of evidence, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy continues to prove the safety and efficacy of HBOT in treating and helping to heal addictions and substance abuse disorders. The TreatNOW Coalition, representing clinics across the US, points to research showing the similarities of the wounds to the brain from traumatic brain injuries, and the brain injuries endured by drug addicts. That physical damage, evident in brain scans, shows that HBOT demonstrates positive results in helping brain injured patients with their desire to heal their wounded brains, get off and stay off drugs, and alleviate the pain of withdrawal. Video 6:46 minutes The President, together with HHS Secretary Tom Price, M.D., recently announced grants to help states and territories combat opioid addiction. The funding, which is the... More »

Chuck Norris: Wife uses Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Last Updated on 2017-08-28 13:47:02 FULLMEASURE  |  Fighting For Her Life  |  August 27th 2017 August 27, 2017 — Full Measure has learned the FDA is planning a public meeting as it grapples with a little-known but serious risk from a common medical procedure: MRIs. The danger comes from an injected chemical agent a heavy metal called gadolinium used to enhance the images. Doctors used to think it was quickly expelled from the body. It turns out that's not always the case and it makes a small percentage of people very sick, as it did the wife of American icon Chuck Norris. ..... Gena says getting better has meant everything from seeing specialists in China to getting oxygen therapy in a hyperbaric chamber. They even bought one to have it close by. Gena Norris: In this machine alone, I’ve done probably about 100 dives, we can them dives, just to help heal my brain. Video 12:43... More »
Effects of Hyperbaric Oxygen on Cancer Last Updated on 2017-08-28 13:44:23 Source Link:  U.S. National Library of Medicine - National Institutes of Health Biomed Rep. 2017 Apr;6(4):475-479. doi: 10.3892/br.2017.869. Epub 2017 Mar 8. Qi Y1, Ruan J1, Wang M1, Dai Y1, Zhou Q2, Gui S3, Zhang S2, Wang Y2.   Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) has been previously identified as an effective adjunct treatment option for the management of brain injury, diabetic ulcers and chronic wounds. However, the roles of HBO as an adjunctive therapy for tumors remain controversial. The present research project was performed to explore the effects of HBO treatment on proliferation, autophagy and endoplasmic reticulum stress response of the gastric cancer cell line, SGC7901. The present study demonstrated that, after subjecting SGC7901 cells to HBO treatment, the increase in cell proliferation was significant, compared with that of the control group. In addition, there... More »
