Introducing Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)
We are excited to offer HBOT here at Freedom Healthcare
What could be treated
Long-COVID symptoms/COVID Brain
This symptomatology is relatively new and still being studied. Preliminary studies have been done on COVID brain, loss of smell and taste, fatigue, vascular and neurologic problems. These symptoms appear to be due to ongoing inflammation and overreaction of the immune system, which HBOT helps reverse. It also increases blood flow, oxygen, and nutrients to the damaged tissues thereby assisting in the repair/healing process.
HBOT decreases inflammation which helps with autoimmune diseases (Crohn’s disease, Rheumatoid arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus, and more). Studies have shown great success in reducing inflammation in these conditions, even putting some patients into remission, if they completed enough sessions.
Pain and Inflammation (due to injury, infection, or disease)
HBOT helps improve autonomic function (the processes in your body that you don’t do voluntarily), such as digestion, relaxation, sleep, and restoration.
HBOT can change how your genes are expressed by helping genetic predispositions calm down if they are overactive. For example, HBOT can positively affect 8,101 known genes, reducing inflammation and pain by releasing “feel-good” hormones, endorphins, and neurotransmitters. In addition, HBOT increases sleep quality, regulates stress by decreasing the fight or flight reaction, and improves the rest/digest/repair state.
If you have the following conditions, you should not use HBOT:
- Collapsed or punctured lung
- Sickle cell anemia
- High fever
- Sinus and ear congestion
- Hereditary spherocytosis
If you are on the following medications, you should not use HBOT:
- Mafenide Acetate
Note: you need to clear your ears as though you are driving up the mountain and your ears get clogged. So if you are congested, it is recommended that you wait until the congestion resolves. Decongestants may help, and you can always try, but you may not be able to get fully under pressure, and you could be at risk of popping an eardrum.
The FDA has approved 14 conditions for HBOT. In addition, other countries have studied, recognized, and approved up to 94 conditions. The statements/claims made in this email are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.
