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.
