Excerpt from Carson's Story

After a normal pregnancy, Carson was born by C-section without complications. For the first six weeks of his life, he was a well baby. At six weeks of age, Carson became extremely ill, having contracted pertussis. Hospitalized and placed on a ventilator, his condition worsened and he suffered cardio-pulmonary arrest. Although hospital staff performed CPR and were able to resuscitate him, he sustained anoxia to the brain.......At age 2 years and 2 months, Carson underwent his first set of 40 HBOT treatments..........With each HBOT treatment thereafter, it became very evident that his muscles were getting looser and by the twentieth treatment, he was sitting up, unassisted, and starting to play while in the hyperbaric chamber.......After this second set of treatments we saw the greatest improvement in his speech as he began to mimic words and use multiple word sounds in sentence form. He became socially interactive and playful, loving to tease his older brother, Dillon. We noticed his eyes had more depth and he was so much more alert to his surroundings. His balance and weight bearing continued to improve and he began walking with a medical walker. He continues to love his new found mobility.......Currently, Carson is in the process of completing his third set of 40 HBOT treatments since he started hyperbaric therapy in the fall of 2007. To us, the concept of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is so simple to understand – getting the dormant cells in Carson’s injured brain filled with oxygen and functional so that he can experience the best quality of life that we can give to him. We are so proud of his progress. We thank the Lord and the natural healing power of 100% pure oxygen.
