Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and Poor circulation
Poor circulation arises from aging, injury or disease and blood flow can decrease to all parts of the body, including the brain.
When oxygen is breathed under pressure (Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy) it is absorbed into all the body fluids including cerebrospinal fluid, blood plasma, lymph, and intracellular fluids. This then permits an increase in oxygen levels to areas with poor or compromised blood supply, and areas of tissue damage including our brain, bones, muscles and skin.
Benefits of HBOT:
– Reduces swelling and pain
– Prevents Hypoxia (lack of oxygen) of the traumatized tissues
– Speeds up the healing of tissues, ligaments and fractured bones
– Reduces scar tissue formation and damage
– Improve immune system
– Enhanced activity cells including brain neurons.
– Fights infections
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy eliminates the effects of poor circulation including:
– Fatigue (Lack of or Low Energy)/stamina and Shortness of Breath, Dizziness
– Edema or Swelling in the feet, legs and/or fingers, Varicose Veins, Leg Ulcers and Foot Ulcers
– Headaches, Sluggish memory
– Muscle Cramps and Pain, Lower Leg Pain
– Dry or itchy Skin, Skin sores and Infection
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy also enhances growth of new blood vessels, increased ability of white blood cells to fight infection and increase growth of cells involved in wound healing.
