Joe Namath, legendary quarterback, has been treated with hyperbaric oxygen therapy for early cognitive symptoms related to past concussive episodes he experienced while playing professional football. Namath is a firm believer and supporter in the benefits of HBOT for brain injury. His support is so dedicated, Namath not only helped raise $10 million to fund […]

Scientific American online recently posted a well written article about hyperbaric oxygen therapy and its emergence in treating varied and new conditions.  Conditions, also know as “off-label” or “research conditions” were listed as having positive benefit from treatment with HBOT as a primary or adjuvant therapy.  The list included breast and prostate cancers, neurological diseases, […]

The Department of Defense is currently running multiple studies on Hbot. The U. S. Army Medical Materiel Development Activity is leading an effort to determine if hyperbaric oxygen is of benefit in the treatment of chronic symptoms of mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) or post-concussion syndrome (PCS). Results should be available this year. Read more: […]

“This study strongly suggests that both post traumatic stress disorder and the post concussion syndrome of mild traumatic brain injury are treatable nearly three years after injury,” concludes Dr. Paul Harch, who is also Medical Director of the LSU Hyperbaric Medicine & Wound Care Department. “The magnitude of the improvements in memory, executive function, functional […]

I’ve had rheumatoid arthritis (RA) for over 20 years. I was experiencing another bout of chronic, debilitating inflammation when I decided to try hyperbaric oxygen. My response was dramatic. The fingers in my left hand straightened out completely. The joints of my right hand which had become quite deformed began to regain their normal shape and function. The swelling in my feet was reduced so significantly that I had to buy shoes a half size smaller. Other beneficial changes I’ve noticed included a reduction in chronic muscle tension, improved sleep, and skin changes. For example, the chronic skin problems on my feet completely cleared up and my overall skin tone has improved. The increase in energy, clarity in thinking, and sense of well-being that I feel with the hyperbaric oxygen is wonderful! The chronic joint pain is gone. And unlike RA medications I’ve tried, I don’t have to worry about side effects.
