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
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
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
