Can HBOT increase my energy levels?

More Background on Oxygen & Blood

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is all about breathing. When we breathe, oxygen from the air travels through our lungs and into our bloodstream. From there, most of it binds to red blood cells which take that oxygen all around our body and drop it off wherever we need it. And the rest? About 0.3 ml per 100 ml is absorbed into our blood plasma, the liquid part of blood that makes up about 55% of the blood in our body. The plasma can get to places that even red blood cells are too big to reach, and it brings the oxygen it absorbed with it. In other words, the more oxygen your blood plasma has, the more oxygen gets to places that don’t normally get any, adding heath and vitality back into your lifestyle. Wounds and tissue damage can be positively affected in this manner, as well as increasing your energy and activity levels.

How Does HBOT Support Natural Healing?

HBOT is a natural remedy for a wide variety of ailments and illnesses. Our bodies regenerate cells to replace dying cells by the trillions each minute. The health and vitality of these cells determines our overall heath and energy level. HBOT treatments provide an atmosphere beneficial to allow this process to happen. HBOT can help alleviate mental or cognitive impairment due to Alzheimer’s or dementia, anxiety, depression, autism, and more. Other reasons users seek HBOT is to support complications form conditions like Lyme disease, autoimmune diseases, strokes, AIDS, Hepatitis C, traumatic brain injuries, post-surgical recovery and more. If you or a loved one are looking for a solution free of chemicals or medications with side effects, HBOT may be right for you.

How does HBOT oxygenate the tissues?

Mild hyperbaric chambers raise the air pressure within them to about 1.3 to 1.5 times the pressure on the outside atmosphere. That pushes more oxygen into your lungs, into your blood, and into your plasma. Your blood will have much more oxygen to distribute throughout your body, saturating damaged tissues with oxygen to aid in the healing process and increasing blood flow to the brain. This will help to support natural healthy cell regeneration, reduce the effects of aging, and restore healthy energy and activity levels. HBOT will revitalize your whole body as essential oxygen makes its way throughout and helps your body repair tissue, cleanse itself of harmful microbes, and stimulate white blood cell response to fight off infection.
