You can survive weeks without food and days without water, but only minutes without oxygen–the basic building block for healing, which makes oxygen therapy essential and logical for patients whose healing is compromised. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is quickly becoming the preferred adjunct therapy for patients with stroke, non-healing wounds, radiation damage, chronic illnesses, and many more conditions. HBOT increases the oxygen gradient in damaged, oxygen starved tissues. The oxygen you breathe in the chamber dissolves into your blood more efficiently, acting as a cellular energy catapult so that your plasma and tissues are saturated beyond a cellular level. A cascade of healing mechanisms are then triggered which include an improvement in auto-immune response, a reduction in inflammation and swelling, and inhibition of bacteria–all of which are very important for cancer patients undergoing treatment!
