Hyperbaric oxygen therapy, aka HBOT, involves breathing in 100 percent oxygen in higher than normal atmospheric pressure. These conditions encourage the oxygen to be both absorbed and dissolved quickly into your bloodstream, which results in increased oxygen supply to any of your damaged tissues.
Hyperbaric therapy that employs 100 percent oxygen and pressurizes above 3.5 psi requires a prescription from your primary healthcare provider. Mild hyperbaric therapy, or mHBOT also offers some health benefits by administering 95 percent oxygen under 1.3 to 1.4 atmospheric pressure, and it requires no prescription. This protocol is more accessible to most people who may not have access to health insurance.
If you are using HBOT for cancer it is best to maximize the healing process by using 100% medical grade oxygen at least 2 times the atmospheric pressure or 7.5 PSI.
Healing Benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Some of the healing benefits HBOT offers include:
• Slowing of cancer growth
• Boosting the supply and circulation of stem cells
• Promoting the growth of new capillaries and blood vessels
• Boosting the efficacy of chemotherapy drugs
• Increasing survival rates in patients with metastatic cancer
• Reducing radiation-induced inflammation in tissues and bones
• Stimulating oxygenation
• Supporting faster wound healing
To say the least, this therapy can help kill tumors by providing a highly lethal environment for them that is comprised mostly of oxygen. Moreover, the therapy increases the number of white blood cells in your body that powers your immune system to fight off bacteria and virus. Also, the more your body is exposed to oxygen the higher your ability to absorb antioxidants that help fight free radicals in your body. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a key to battling cancer, and offers many healing benefits for those fighting for their lives.
