Reverse cellular age markers with hyperbaric oxygen therapy

Read more on anti-aging and cognitive performance enhancement at BaroMedical.

Two exciting studies recently emerged from Israel with evidence suggesting that hyperbaric oxygen therapy can be effective in promoting cognitive performance and reverse markers of cellular agingYou can access the studies below.

Reverse Markers of Cellular Aging:

COVID-19 recovery with hyperbaric oxygen therapy

Clinical trials has commenced in Israel under the guidance of Dr. Shai Efrati to investigate effective use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy in COVID-19 recovery. 

The trials are focusing on addressing long-term sequela symptoms of COVID exposure: cognitive impairment, fatigue, sleep disorders, smell and taste disorders, pain and more. 

The research group is hypothesizing COVID-19 can cause neuroinflammation and micro-infarcts leading to local hypoxia, specifically neurological hypoxia. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy will be used to reverse hypoxia, reduce neuroinflammation, and induce neuroplasticity.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is an effective and natural way to recover from and prevent future health complications.
We can help you maintain and rejuvenate your health.

What is hyperbaric oxygen therapy?

Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy is treatment of the entire body with one hundred percent pure oxygen at greater than normal atmospheric pressure.

Why oxygen?

Oxygen is an absolute key component of life.  It is required by all cells in the body for respiration and energy production, and is essential in keeping each one of us in optimal physical and mental shape. Inadequate oxygen levels in the body will cause cell death and organ malfunction, which in turn will manifest as a variety of injuries and illnesses.  

What effect does oxygen therapy have?

Increased concentration of oxygen combined with increased pressure greatly increases the amount of oxygen dissolved in the blood and thereby the amount of oxygen delivered to the tissues. This allows oxygen to reach every remote cell in the body that needs repair, regardless of functioning circulation. Most remarkable healing is observed in wounds and brain, where swelling, inflammation and infection are impeding the repair. 

 Excellence in Health 

Who should use oxygen therapy? 

Today, hyperbaric oxygen therapy is used not only to address serious medical conditions, but also as a natural therapy to cope with the effects of aging, stress, and overexertion.  

Adequate oxygen levels in your body will keep your health in balance.

Benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

  • Stimulates the growth of new blood vessels, improving blood flow to areas with reduced circulation.
  • Enhances white blood cell activity against infectious microorganisms.
  • Augments efficacy of antibiotics and chemotherapeutic agents.
  • Prevents complications arising from chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
  • Stimulates an adaptive increase in Superoxide Dismutase (SOD), one of the body's principal, internally-produced antioxidants and free radical scavengers.
  • Increases the number of circulating stem cells, and promotes stem cell differentiation.

CLINICAL TRIAL ALERT: COVID-19 and HBOT 

An ongoing study in New York City is assessing how HBOT may reduce mortality and the need for ventilation among COVID-19 patients[3]. The pilot study is expected to conclude by July 2020.

It is expected that we will soon see additional studies showing hyperbaric oxygen therapy used in the early stage or as a preventive measure in high risk patients with COVID-19 infection.

RESEARCH STUDY

Alzheimer study!

Drs. Paul Harch and Edward Fogarty concludes: "... a 9-week treatment of low-pressure HBOT (40 sessions) in a patient with AD [Alzheimer's Dementia] caused a significant increase in global metabolism on 18FDG PET imaging with concomitant symptomatic improvement." 

And the positive effect persisted after the therapy was discontinued: "Continued HBOT [Hyperbaric oxygen therapy] in conjunction with standard pharmacotherapy maintained the patient’s symptomatic level of function over an ensuing 22 months.
