What you need to know on cancer and oxygen!

To prevent cancer it is therefore proposed first to keep the speed of the blood stream so high that the venous blood still contains sufficient oxygen, to keep high the concentration of hemoglobin in the blood. 

– Dr. Otto Warburg, Nobel Prize Laureate 

Cancer cells thrive in a low oxygen environment.  This low oxygen environment is brought about by dysfunction of small arteries (called capillaries) in and around the cancer tissue.  To combat and prevent the spread of cancer cells adequate oxygen supply to the cancer tissue must be ensured, deranged capillaries notwithstanding.  Under such hostile conditions, adequate oxygenation of the cancer tissue is attainable only through Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.

I would recommend hyperbaric treatments to all cancer patients.” 

– ES, breast cancer survivor 

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a natural treatment that creates an oxygen-rich environment in your body by dissolving a substantial amount of oxygen in the liquid portion of your blood (called plasma), providing ample oxygen supply regardless of capillary dysfunction.  

“I noticed right away an increase in energy, which was a gift.”

 – BP, lung cancer survivor 

As hyperbaric oxygen therapy nurtures healthy tissues and boosts your energy, it weakens cancer cells in the process.  The oxygen-rich environment stops cancer growth and prevents cancer spread (metastasis), increasing your chances of survival.  At the same time, it protects against the harmful effects of chemotherapy and radiation therapy.   

My hyperbaric treatments definitely helped me to avoid side effects of radiation therapy.  I have found it to be very beneficial and supportive for me during my radiation therapy.” 

– ES, invasive breast cancer survivor 

In addition, hyperbaric oxygen therapy promotes the growth of new and healthy blood vessels.  These blood vessels drive oxygen deep into the cancer tissue, further arresting cancer growth while simultaneously enhancing the therapeutic effect of chemotherapy and radiation therapy. 

 “My doctors are amazed.  The treatment took maybe half my cancer cells away and really improved my bones.”

– JB, multiple myeloma survivor  

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy also enhances your immune system to respond more effectively against cancer.  It stimulates mobilization of stem cells as well, increasing the number of stem cells in your blood by as much as eight-fold.  These stem cells help repair your cancer-stricken organs.

I would recommend this therapy as a preventive procedure.  I have more energy now, less pain, and my mind is more clear.

– AW, colorectal cancer survivor 

Cancer remains the nation’s leading cause of death despite advances in cancer treatment.  Give yourself a better fighting chance and improve your quality of life.  Let hyperbaric oxygen therapy suppress your cancer and bridge the gap between treatment and survival.

Cancer Recovery

A M., North Vancouver, BC

"...I found the sessions to be very friendly and efficient. I would highly recommend this treatment."

Otto Warburg, Nobel Prize Laureate 

"All normal cells have an absolute requirement for oxygen, but cancer cells can live without oxygen - a rule without exception. Deprive a cell 35% of its oxygen for 48 hours and it may become cancerous." 

Otto Warburg, German physiologist receiving Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1931 for his discovery that the root cause of cancer is oxygen deficiency, and proving that cancer cells are anaerobic (do not breathe oxygen) and cannot survive in the presence of high levels of oxygen.

Severe ulcerative breast cancer

Nancy P, Tofino BC

"I will always be grateful to BaroMedical for taking me on as a client.

I had an ulcerating breast tumour with severe MRSA infection and had almost bled to death on numerous occasions. Thanks to the hyperbaric treatments my breast tumour is shrinking, the bleeding has stopped and the infection is all but gone.

Not many clinics would have agreed to help me in the severe condition that I was in.

My sincerest thanks to everyone at BaroMedical for their help."
