Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) involves breathing concentrated oxygen in a pressurized chamber. Best known as a treatment for decompression sickness and for wound healing, HBOT is also effective at reducing inflammation, fighting infection, increasing energy levels, and promoting healing throughout the body—especially the brain.
Oxygen is so essential to brain function that, although the brain represents only 2% of the human body by weight, it consumes 20% of the body’s oxygen intake. At Springfield Wellness Center, we offer HBOT along with intravenous NAD+ treatment, to support brain restoration from addiction, CTE, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Hyperbaric oxygen treatment cost is as follows:
- $55 – Single one-hour treatment
- $300 – Monthly unlimited subscription
Benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen
The benefits of hyperbaric oxygen stretch across the wide spectrum of healthcare, including:
Oxygenating addiction-damaged brain cells helps to restore clarity, functionality, and a sense of well-being. HBOT also appears to accelerate the detoxification process by boosting metabolism and to increase stem cell production that can regenerate tissues damaged by alcohol and drug abuse in organs like the pancreas, liver, and brain.
Inflammation and Parkinson’s Disease
Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative disease with a strong association with systemic inflammation. Initial studies show that HBOT treatment helps to balance cerebral glucose metabolism, reducing tremors and other PD symptoms.
Systemic inflammation is a major contributor to the development of PD. Studies show that treating systemic inflammation can help to reduce the severity of PD symptoms and improve quality of life.
HBOT treatment has been shown to be an effective treatment for reducing inflammation and balancing cerebral glucose metabolism in patients with PD. This therapy may help to improve symptoms and quality of life for patients with this debilitating disease.
Inflammation and Alzheimer’s Disease
Alzheimer’s disease is a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by cognitive decline and memory loss. This debilitating disease is the 6th leading cause of death in the United States and affects over 5 million Americans.
Low blood flow is the #1 brain imaging predictor that a person will develop Alzheimer’s disease. By increasing oxygenated blood flow to the brain, recent studies show that HBOT can improve brain metabolism in patients with Alzheimer’s and reverse the normal symptomatic progression of the disease.
Since low blood flow to the brain is a major contributor to the development of Alzheimer’s disease, HBOT therapy may help to improve brain metabolism and reduce the symptoms of this disease. This therapy has the potential to improve quality of life for patients with Alzheimer’s disease and their caregivers.
HBOT has been shown to be an effective treatment for brain injuries, including traumatic brain injuries (TBI). HBOT can improve cognitive function and reduce inflammation in the brain. One study found that HBOT was more effective than conventional treatments in reducing symptoms of TBI.
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
HBOT has been shown to be an effective treatment for chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). One study found that after 40 sessions of HBOT, patients with CFS had a significant improvement in fatigue and quality of life compared to those who did not receive HBOT.
Some studies have found that HBOT can improve symptoms associated with autism such as social interaction, communication, and repetitive behaviors.
HBOT can improve joint function and reduce pain in patients with arthritis. One study found that HBOT was more effective than conventional treatments like physical therapy and medication in reducing pain and improving quality of life for patients with arthritis.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can stimulate the production of collagen, which is integral to the skin’s elasticity. This can help to reduce wrinkles and give the skin a more youthful appearance.
