While breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized chamber has been widely known and used as the primary treatment for decompression sickness, or “the bends,” which typically occurs during scuba diving, hyperbaric oxygen therapy is also a useful treatment for many other ailments and injuries.
Invented in the 1600s in Great Britain, but not widely used or of great benefit until the 1800s, HBOT involves breathing oxygen at 1.5 – 3 times higher than normal atmospheric pressure. When oxygen is consumed at higher pressures, up to 20 times more oxygen can be absorbed by the body. Increasing oxygen absorption can have a major impact on the speed at which an individual can heal or recover as the oxygen intake of cells, tissues, and organs is significantly increased.
Some of the benefits claimed from regular HBOT include new capillary and blood vessel growth, a boosted supply of stem cells floating in the blood, promotion of new nerve growth, a decrease in wound healing time, slowing of cancer growth, boosted efficacy of chemotherapy drugs, a reduction in inflammation, and much more.
