Spreading The Word of Others

What began as a few lines in a Facebook post to introduce a paper recently published in the US became a little long winded, so is better shared as a “snippet article”. On occasion we take a break from writing and do some reading of what others have written. When we write, we do try to write for the patient

Dementia Stroke and Neuro-Degenerative Disorders

It may seem a little clumsy to group these conditions under a single heading as they differ greatly in many ways in their onset, direct causes and individual pathologies. However, as far as HBOT and complementary therapy goes, specifically oxygen therapy, they share one commonality among them, hypoxia (low oxygen, or lack of oxygen). In all of these neurological conditions

Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Associated Conditions

Drawing on work by neuro-scientist Dr Joe Dispenza, PTSD comes into focus today. In Dr Joe’s works, he details how he describes the brains response to external events in life. In brief, he writes that when an event occurs externally, our brains respond to this event and a chemical state is generated in the brain and that chemical state in

Anti Ageing & HBOT

I guess this counts as one of the few vanity treatments which extend a little beyond the core therapeutic treatments we promote. Or does it? Many of the core therapies we support the use of HBOT for, include neurodegenerative conditions such as dementia, recovery form injury, improvement in cognitive function, improvement of memory and so on, are all components of

Dosage: HBOT and mHBOT

For the purposes of this discussion HBOT is “Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy”, and mHBOT is “Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy”. It does not mean “Medium Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy”, this is a play on the meaning of the label and how it relates directly to dosage. The differentiation between these two applications comes down to dosage. Full dose, and mild dose. Dosage is

Stem Cell Mobilisation and HBOT: Case Study

One highly controversial area of scientific research is that of the research into stem cell synthesis or stem cell harvesting. It has long been a contentious issue with a host of moral objections. stem cells are crucial to healing though and many serious conditions can and do benefit from stem cell therapy. Specifically where nerve damage is involved. When cells
