Inflammation + Hyperbarics

Inflammation is an incredibly common side effect of numerous medical conditions, and coincides with nearly all types of injuries to the body. Most of us have likely felt inflammation a time or two!

Unfortunately, there are certain conditions and diseases that can result in chronic inflammation, including Alzheimer's, atherosclerosis, autism, cancer, stroke, diabetes, TBIs, and many others.

Recent studies are showing that HBOT has demonstrated the ability to substantially reduce inflammation throughout the body. This is done through the higher levels of oxygen being driven through the plasma.

The International Hyperbarics Association lists these as demonstrated benefits of HBOT for inflammation:

Support Anti-Inflammatory Process at the Cellular Level With HBOT:

  • Decreases acute/chronic inflammation

  • Minimizes pain and discomfort

  • Increases anti-inflammatory cytokines

  • Reduces swelling

  • Induces fibroblast activation

Reduce Neuroinflammation With HBOT:

  • Ameliorates autism symptoms

  • Supports the prevention and treatment of stroke

  • Reduces risk of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease

Decrease Gastrointestinal Inflammation With HBOT:

  • Remediates inflammatory bowel disease

  • Ameliorates ulcerative colitis

  • Improves nutrition absorption

Relieve Soft Tissue/Joint Inflammation With HBOT:

  • Remediates osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis

  • Ameliorates tendinitis

  • Accelerates recovery from sports-related and high-impact injuries

Prevent the Onset of Chronic Inflammatory-Related Diseases With HBOT:

  • Attenuates cancer risk and progression

  • Reduces risk of atherosclerosis, heart attacks, and strokes

  • Ameliorates diabetic conditions linked to inflammation

You can also take a look at this video from Dr. Jason Sonners from HBOT USA in which he discusses chronic inflammation and HBOT:
