Oxygen... is LIFE!
The Importance of Oxygen
All life is dependent upon oxygen. Like this magician trying to escape death, we all must have oxygen to live. It makes up 65% of the human body and all normal healthy cells require oxygen in order to create energy. And just as important... oxygen is required to detox the cells by expelling what doesn’t belong, resulting in the body having the ability to heal itself.
Oxygen comes from the air we breathe and the food we eat. And bad choices in food creates an environment low in oxygen.
When there is not enough oxygen for the cells to detox… toxins build up and the body becomes acidic. Once the cellular environment becomes acidic (low in oxygen) we also find the immune system to be suppressed and not functioning properly, because it too is dependent upon sufficient oxygen levels in order to operate at peak performance.
In this state of decay, the body is not able to defend itself from pathogens, viruses, fungi, and bacteria. You see where this is leading, right? We now find ourselves susceptible to all types of metabolic disease. Additionally, if we become injured during this time — healing is greatly slowed because oxygen is needed to repair the damaged tissues. (If you do not understand what metabolic diseases are and how they occur, you may want to stop and learn about this now.)
What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)?
Hyperbaric technology involves increasing the air pressure (ATA 'atmospheres absolute') up to 3 times more than normal while breathing 100% pure oxygen. Considering that the air we breathe is comprised of only 21% oxygen, you can understand that HBOT is literally flooding your body with life giving oxygen which enhances the body’s natural healing process.
Hyperbaric medicine grew out of the problems encountered by divers exposed to high pressures. Hyperbaric is an emerging medical specialty with a scientific basis supported by over 13,000 clinical studies (just on the NIH.gov) and continues to be explored.
HBOT Can Make An Incredible Difference
HBOT supports the function of the bone marrow which is CRUCIAL for life.
The reason being... All cells: red, white, platelets, macrophages, etc. all stem from Hematopoietic Stem Cells in the bone marrow. All cellular blood components are derived from haematopoietic stem cells.
Red Blood Cells (RBCs) carry oxygen to the tissues and carbon dioxide from the tissues. 2.4 million RBCs are produced each second.
White Blood Cells (WBCs) are cells of the immune system involved in defending the body against both infectious disease and foreign invaders and pathogens. Macrophages are part of this group of cells. Macrophages are the first responders and signal the immune system to alert all of the other cells required in order to successfully attack and destroy the invaders. Because they are considered regulators of the immune system they are of utmost importance. Without macrophages you basically do not have an immune system.
Platelets are a natural source of growth factors and responsible for the formation of blood clots. These growth factors have been shown to play a significant role in the repair and regeneration of connective tissues.
This research article published on the NIH explains WHY the bone marrow is CRITICAL... "Many blood cells are short-lived and need to be replenished continuously; the average human requires approximately one hundred billion new hematopoietic cells each day. The continued production of these cells depends directly on the presence of Hematopoietic Stem Cells (HSCs), the ultimate and only source of all these cells." ~NIH.gov
Therefore, our very LIVES depend on the bone marrow being able to operate at peak performance.
However, there are instances when the bone marrow is not able to perform as well as our bodies require. Anytime the body is found to be acidic (without oxygen) the functions of the bone marrow are suppressed, because oxygen is necessary for peak performance. All metabolic diseases (such as cancer, autism, etc) also make the body more acidic. And chemo and radiation not only make the body MUCH more acidic, but they can also destroy the production of new stem cells (sometimes only short term and sometimes forever).
To give you an idea of just how POWERFUL HBOT is, let’s look at this next research article which was also published on the NIH.gov site.
The population of (stem cells) in the peripheral circulation of humans doubled in response to a single exposure of 2.0 atmospheres (HBOT) for 2 hours. Over a course of 20 treatments, circulating (stem cells) increased eightfold. ~NIH.gov
Research has proven... Over a course of 20 treatments, circulating (stem cells) increased eightfold (800%). ~NIH.gov
An 800% INCREASE is stem cells is AMAZING!
This explains why there are so many reports of the efficacy of HBOT in Metabolic Diseases. The stem cells then change into the type of cell your body most needs to help you recover from your illness.
With increased oxygen levels... all of the different cells are being regenerated — the cells now have the energy to detox at a much quicker rate — and the body is now able to rid itself of the pathogens, viruses, fungi, and bacteria — and the immune system is put into a higher gear. All of this leads to much quicker healing of the metabolism (you).
According to the Mayo Clinic…”People who might benefit from stem cell therapies include those with spinal cord injuries, type 1 diabetes, Parkinson's disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Alzheimer's disease, heart disease, stroke, burns, cancer and osteoarthritis.” NOTE: Did you notice all the diseases mentioned are Metabolic Diseases? The reality is that every disease and trauma to the body benefits GREATLY from stem cells. In short, stem cells regenerate and repair damaged tissue and organs.
Additionally, by flooding the body with oxygen the process of angiogenesis (the growth of new blood vessels) is imminent and can extend beyond your therapy time. Cells work more efficiently when they receive oxygen from the newly formed blood vessels, which will help push a great load of hemoglobin and oxygen. This occurs primarily because inflammation is being reduced at greater speeds.
This process of angiogenesis (the growth of new blood vessels) brings about collateral circulation (alternate paths of circulation) which can concur as early as ten hours after hyperbaric therapy at pressures that are lower than 1.3 ATA.
“For instance, one of the issues that come with autism is decreased cerebral blood flow and a variety of other conditions that go hand in hand with chronic inflammation. Therefore, HBOT through angiogenesis can help relieve these conditions.” ~Healthcare Business Today
When the inflammation has been reduced, the vascular expansion will help push increased red blood cell count with oxygen molecules to help reach hypoxic areas (areas low in oxygen). All of which, encourages a more rapid state of healing.
Is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Safe?
We turn now to the (NIH) National Institute of Health (a governmental agency) to answer this question.
“... it is safe and well tolerated by patients.” ~NIH.gov
“... parents who pursue Hyperbaric Treatment for their child with autism can be assured that it is a safe treatment modality…” ~NIH.gov
“… two systematic reviews on HBOT and cancer have concluded that the use of HBOT in patients with malignancies is considered safe.” ~NIH.gov
“It [HBOT] has also been commonly applied in the treatment of stroke since 1960s and has proved to be a safe and beneficial treatment strategy.” ~NIH.gov
We could go on and on for days with reports of Hyperbaric Therapy being safe, but we won’t.
FDA Says HBOT Is NOT Safe
Please understand that the Medical System does NOT believe this therapy is SAFE nor does it recommend HBOT.
In fact, the FDA (the gatekeeper for the entire Medical System) warns…
"Patients may incorrectly believe that these devices have been proven safe and effective for uses not cleared by FDA, which may cause them to delay or forgo “proven” medical therapies," says Nayan Patel, a biomedical engineer in FDA's Anesthesiology Devices Branch. "In doing so, they may experience a lack of improvement and/or worsening of their existing condition(s)." ~FDA.gov
I am Confused
If "Oxygen" Therapy is NOT safe... why in the world would medical researchers and doctors publish their findings on the NIH to the contrary? Maybe the Medical System is Broken?
Let me see if I understand... "Oxygen" is NOT safe - BUT "deadly chemicals" in Chemo and Vaccines are? Check out the life threatening chemicals in chemo. And check out the deadly ingredients in vaccines listed on the FDA website.
What Diseases or Conditions can be Treated
with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?
A better question might be… What condition or disease can Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy NOT help?
Once again, let’s turn to the NIH and see what they tell us.
“Hyperbaric Oxygen (HBO) treatment has for centuries been used to IMPROVE or CURE disorders involving hypoxia (cells starved of oxygen) and ischemia (restriction in blood supply to tissues, causing a shortage of oxygen), by enhancing the amount of dissolved oxygen in the plasma and thereby increasing O2 delivery to the tissue. ~NIH.gov
This only makes common sense. Without oxygen our body does not function properly. Due to lack of oxygen the metabolic rate is reduced at a cellular level and the whole body suffers. The immune system is compromised and metabolic disease grabs hold of us.
Metabolic Diseases reported to be improved with HBOT...
METASTASIZED BREAST CANCER
“… all studies confirming the relatively poor prognosis of the triple-negative or basal-like breast cancer subgroup, and patients with triple-negative breast cancer, carries the worst prognosis among all subtypes due to the highly aggressive and metastatic potential of this subtype . . .
The present study on the very aggressive, highly metastatic triple-negative MDA-MB-231 tumors showed a significant reduction in both number and area of metastasis after sixteen, 90 min HBOT at 2.5 ATA. ~NIH.gov
By their own Admission...
Hyperbaric Treatments have been used to CURE and IMPROVE diseases involving a low level of OXYGEN.
In an NIH.gov Research Paper titled... Does Hypoxia Decrease the Metabolic Rate?
The answer is... YES!
"... hypoxia can reduce metabolic rate, at the whole body and cellular level."
1) “the use of hyperbaric treatment appears to be a promising treatment for children with autism . . . Children with autism who received hyperbaric treatment at 1.3 atm and 24% oxygen for 40 hourly sessions had significant improvements in overall functioning, receptive language, social interaction, eye contact, and sensory/cognitive awareness…” ~NIH.gov
2) Material and method: Thai Autistic children (n = 7) received HBOT (1.3 atm., 10 sessions) treatment. Assessment was done before and after treatment in five domains: Social development, Fine motor and Eye-hand coordination, Language development, Gross motor development, Self-help skills. Results: Improvement was shown in five domains with a significant level. Seventy-five percent of children showed improvement while 25% did not seem to respond to the treatment. ~NIH.gov
TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY...
1) "In a recent prospective trial of 16 patients with TBI, HBOT at 1.5 atm/100% oxygen (40 hourly treatments over 30 days) resulted in significant improvements in their neurological exam, IQ, memory, post-traumatic stress symptoms, depression, anxiety and quality of life. Patients also displayed objective improvements in brain perfusion measured by pre- and post-HBOT single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) scans." ~NIH.gov
2) "Conclusions: In the largest published cohort of patients suffering from chronic deficits post-TBI of all severities, HBOT was associated with significant cognitive improvements. The clinical improvements were well correlated with increased activity in the relevant brain areas." ~BMJ Journals (peer-reviewed publication)
“Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is effective in treating brain injury. HBOT can alleviate tissue ischemia (restriction in blood supply to tissues, causing a shortage of oxygen) and hypoxia (cells starved of oxygen), improve circulation, reduce cerebral edema, and anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidative damage, anti-apoptosis and other molecular biological effects. HBOT also plays a wake up-promoting effect of nerve repair in the cerebral injury.” ~NIH.gov
CANCER, LIVER, FIBROSIS…
“… most studies positively evaluated HBOT as a potential therapeutic option for… liver transplantation, acute liver injury, nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, fibrosis and cancer, especially for hepatic artery thrombosis. ~NIH.gov
BRAIN TUMORS (including highly malignant Gliomas)…
“We conclude that the administration of HBOT can provide many clinical benefits in the treatment of tumors, including management of highly malignant gliomas . . . HBOT is observed to exert an inhibitory effect on cancer cell proliferation and to stimulate cancer cell apoptosis (programmed cell death).” ~NIH.gov
Malignant Gliomas are the most common type of primary brain tumor in adults, and are associated with disproportionate cancer-related morbidity and mortality. ~NEJM
Additionally: “Gliomas comprise about 30 percent of all brain tumors and central nervous system tumors, and 80 percent of all malignant brain tumors.” ~CancerGeneticsJournal
CEREBRAL PALSY, TBI, AUTISM…
“… improvements have been observed via treatments with 95–100% oxygen and hyperbaric pressures of 1.5–2.0 atm for some chronic neurological conditions, including autism, fetal alcohol syndrome, cerebral palsy, and chronic or traumatic brain injury.” ~NIH.com
1) “It [HBOT] has also been commonly applied in the treatment of stroke since the 1960s and has proved to be a safe and beneficial treatment strategy." ~NIH.com
2) “Conclusions: Although further research is needed, the results illustrate the potential of HBO₂ for improving memory impairments in post stroke patients, even years after the acute event.” ~NIH.gov
3) “The results indicate that HBOT can lead to significant neurological improvements in post stroke patients even at chronic late stages.” ~NIH.gov
"The study provides evidence that HBOT can improve the symptoms and life quality of FMS patients. Moreover, it shows that HBOT can induce neuroplasticity (the capacity of nerve cells to biologically adapt to circumstances—to respond to stimulation by generating new tendrils of connection) and significantly rectify abnormal brain activity in pain related areas of FMS patients.” ~NIH.gov
“We found HBOT can induce significant enhancements in cognitive performance in healthy elderly. The main improved domains include attention, information processing speed and executive function (set shifting) in addition to global cognitive functions. ~NIH.gov
Dr. Herbert Ley (ex-commissioner of the FDA)
stated in a congressional hearing...
People think the FDA is protecting them. It isn’t. What the FDA is doing and what the people think it’s doing are as night and day.
First, it is providing a means whereby key officials on its payroll are able to obtain both power and wealth through granting special favors to certain groups that are subject to its regulation. For a price one can induce FDA administrators to provide protection from the FDA itself.
Secondly, cartel-oriented companies in the food and drug industry are able to use the police powers of government to harass or destroy their free-market competitors."
~Dr Herbert Ley. "Creating an Employer-friendly Regulatory System: Hearing Before the Subcommittee on National Economic Growth, Natural Resources, and Regulatory Affairs of the Committee on Government Reform and Oversight, House of Representatives, One Hundred Fourth Congress, Second Session," April 2, 1996. page 32
It is hard to wrap your mind around the truth. But the truth seems obvious… the Medical Cartel does not want to cure anyone.
They are only interested in treating “symptoms” and do not use therapies to resolve the “root of the problem”.
