October: Breast Cancer Awareness

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is the official Breast Cancer Awareness Month so BaroMedical is pleased to support our cancer fighters with a monthly special on stem cell therapy and hyperbaric oxygen packages.  

Everyone is invited, both new and current clients as we stand together in fighting cancer.

Contact us today and ask for our Breast Cancers Awareness package.

More oxygen, less cancer!

Hyperbaric oxygen improves the success of radiation and chemotherapy as well as minimizes complications.
Research shows that people with tissue cells deprived of oxygen had worse survival and more metastases than those who had higher oxygen levels in their tumors.

Testimonial linkRadiotherapy 
by Elzbieta S.
Burnaby, BC

"I have found it [hyperbaric oxygen therapy, ed.] to be very beneficial treatment, so supportive for me during my radiation therapy, connected with an invasive breast cancer.

My one hour hyperbaric treatments were following radiation sessions and definitely helped me to avoid side effects of radiation.

Firstly, I didn’t feel so tired and burned out.  Secondly, I didn’t develop any burns on my skin.

I will recommend hyperbaric treatments to all cancer patients. I believe also that in a long run these treatments saved me from possible cancer caused by radiation itself.

Thank you so much for wonderful care."


Surgical recovery
by Sherry H. -
Trail, BC

"I do not regret having spent the money on health care that I  firmly believe helped me both physically and mentally.  The physical aspect being confirmed by my surgeon.  The mental being that I came out of a terrible state of depression.  I also believe timing was important and the decision to go private was due to how quickly I could get in.  It is also my belief that in a hospital I would have been treated well but not nearly as well as how I was treated at your private clinic.  " (#0567-1008)
