General health 

"My Baromedical Experience: Anne S.
After reading the articles on the research being done on longevity (increased telomere length) with barometric oxygen therapy, I sought out the Baromedical Clinic to see if it could help with high blood pressure and was curious to see its effect on my overall health.

When we first started treatment I found it difficult getting used to the oxygen chambers but it became easier with time and by the end of the treatments it was relieving. Also we were very tired after treatments for at least the first 15 visits.

Brain: I have always had a good mind but in the last few years I had noticed a mild decrease in the speed of my recall which I had accepted as age appropriate. Initially I found the treatments made my mind foggy and my recall was even slower. By the end of the treatments my mind is absolutely sharp and am ready for a game of jeopardy.

Joints: Increase mobility. I had reduced left rotation of my neck for years and about half way through the treatment it fully returned. I was so excited moving my neck that by the end of the day I was sore. Generally the mobility of all my joints improved and they would pop when I was turning inside the chamber.

Skin: My skin improved, moles became flatter, dark spots lightened and my varicose veins became less prominent.

Breathing and sports: I found that my breathing became easier even though I hadn’t noticed that it was a problem before treatment. Also, I am a swimmer and my endurance and breathing improved without any additional training. In fact I got into the pool and right away it felt like I had already done the warm up- it felt like being a teenager again.

Blood Pressure: My BP was elevated by the treatments during the course of therapy. This reduced at the end of the treatment but was still mildly hypertensive. I do believe my body is stronger and healthier now and I am going to continue to work on niacin flush, meditation and lifestyle changes and have full confidence I can overcome and normalize my BP in the next few months.

Staff: The friendliness, care and level of professionalism is the best I’ve ever experienced. With 23 almost daily visits, I was able to have a lot of time to ask questions and learn. This is the first group of medical professionals who were also knowledgeable with alternative health care. They were open minded and did research between visits if they were not sure of something.

I would strongly recommend anyone to try this experience and in fact I brought my entire family including my parents who are currently getting treatments too."

Anne S, Agassiz, BC

Neuro-rehabilitation 

It was a great experience! The staff at BaroMedical are friendly and knowledgeable and answered all of my questions I had. By the end of only my second session I was feeling more focused, more clarity and felt great physically too.

Thank you BaroMedical for everything. I would highly recommend them and I am definitely coming back. –Jen"

J C, North Delta, BC

Raditation recovery - Prostate Cancer

" My urologist suggests hyperbaric oxygen treatment to help heal radiation damage resulting previous cancer treatment. The burning sensation I had experienced for 2+years was reduced by 50% after 23 hyperbaric sessions. 

I may take another round of sessions for even more relief. I found the sessions to be very friendly and efficient. 

I would highly recommend this treatment. "

A M, North Vancouver, BC

Lyme disease recovery

"Would recommend a minimum of 30 treatments, 40 if possible. Have had results already and will continue as I head home.

The Team at HBOTT [BaroMedical] are clearly the most intelligent + compassionate group of Drs I have dealt with.

I highly recommend to anyone suffering from Lyme disease."

Lucy H, West Kelowna, BC

Neuro-rehabilitation

"My husband Trong started HBOT 2 months ago with GCS 7-8 at BaroMedical. He was with PE tube, with no motor and cognitive function.

After completing 46 session of HBOT, he’s been able to recognize family members, friends. He now smile and answers simple questions. He is more alert than ever before.

His mental abilities have been improved drastically. Even his motor activities are visibly better. He is able to make a fist, handshake. However, his lower limbs are still spastic with absence of meaningful control for now. On upper extremities his R side is visibly stronger than left. "

Alena D, wife of Trong B, Burnaby, BC

Neuro-rehabilitation

"I am satisfied and happy with improvements I got from neuro-rehabilitation program at BaroMedical. My controls on bowel and bladder came back; my right side of body is more sensitive then before. I am more energetic and my right hand movement has improved then before starting HBO."

 

Dawn D, Salt Spring Isl, BC

Surgical recovery, Sports injury

"15 years ago I injured my Achilles tendon and assisted my recovery with Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy at BaroMedical Hyperbaric Centre. The recovery from the injury was twice as fast as my previous recovery from an identical injury I had on my other foot 3 years prior.

Last month I had a hip replacement surgery, and after being discharged from the hospital I once again decided to use Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy at BaroMedical to aid my recovery. The results of the treatment exceeded even my best expectations and timelines, with my surgery wound completely closing within 3 weeks of surgery.

The owners of the BaroMedical Hyperbaric Centre are a couple from Europe, both with PhDs and an earnest interest in the welfare of their patients. They take the time to get to know you and figure out what is the best course of action for your situation.

The clinic itself is unassuming from outside, but as soon as you step inside you can tell it is well run, clean, professional, and organized.

As a professional mountain guide my physical ability is incredibly important for my work, and I would like to thank BaroMedical Hyperbaric Centre for helping me recover and get back on my feet so quickly every time after an injury."

Zoran, Burnaby BC

Sports injury recovery, Concussion

"The BaroMedicial Team is absolutely amazing.

My son came in with concussion symptoms from a sports injury and completed the recommended number of treatments.

The group of doctors at this facility is professional, compassionate and uses the oxygen technology to its full potential. They provide a clean, comfortable and kind atmosphere and were extremely conscientious in their approach to each session.

There is not a question that I would return here for further treatment if necessary. My son no longer has headaches and is feeling much better.

My experience was an extremely positive one at BarMedical. Thank you to everyone involved."

Anita P (Mother), Burnaby BC

Alzheimer's and Dementia care

"My mother has dementia and her dementia was accelerating.

After 23 sessions of HBOT, mom regained her balance while walking or standing. HBOT improved her strength, she can control her body, and she feel more confident.

In addition to that, her tremors subsided but not completely. She feels less tired. HBOT helped to restore her energy and to sleep better. Regarding mom's tinnitus, it was continuous but now it is intermitted.

Mom's short term memory slightly improved. She can draw a clock perfectly, she can write numbers of hundreds thousands correctly. She is happy to regain her math skills.

And best of all LESS SUNDOWNING.

Thank you BaroMedical for your efforts, Nada."

Nada, Vancouver BC

Diabetes care

"My father and mother have both gained wonderful results coming to BaroMedical.

Since my diabetic father has been receiving his weekly treatments, we have noticed considerable differences in his mental clarity.

My mom also loves coming to BaroMedical and being around the attentive staff there."

On behalf of T &I, Burnaby BC

Diabetes care, Wound care

"At first, I was so relieved after learning that there was a good possibility my mom could benefit from oxygen therapy.

Then after 10 treatment sessions the relief turned into a positive reality when mom’s very poor circulation in her both legs improved considerably and the open wounds finally dried up and infection stopped.

I wished many suffering seniors with severe wound problems could have the financial means to be treated by oxygen therapy.

I wished as well family doctors in BC were more aware and willing to recommends oxygen therapy to their patients.

My mom and I are so great full to BaroMedical. Wonderful, efficient, knowledgeable and caring medical staff. Definitely we will not hesitate to recommend BaroMedical Clinic.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts."

Dolores and Elizabeth,  Burnaby BC

Concussions

"I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience at BaroMedical. I went there after a series of concussions feeling very weak and in pain.

My strength and energy have improved tremendously and the pain has diminished considerably with more and more days when I have no pain at all.

The staff is friendly, courteous, patient and very professional. I always felt incredibly well taken care of. They always had time for my questions and always had a word of encouragement and a smile.

Many thanks to all staff at BaroMedical!"

L W,  Vancouver BC

Follow up:

"Hello all at BaroMedical!

As you can see from this picture I am doing really well! I went for a 25km hike last week and still feel great!

Thank you for all the amazing care you gave me and best in all your projects!

Many blessings

LW"

Wound healing

"My Baromedical experience was positive. The clinic is staffed by doctors qualified to assist and they kept me informed at all times about the process and discussed my health problems knowledgeable. They were kind, professional and absolutely very helpful.

I will miss them all, but will be back for more hyperbaric oxygen treatments in the near future.

I would recommend this clinic and their delivery of hyperbaric treatments for wound healing. My sores healed rapidly within three week time frame. Thank you all at BaroMedical, you are such a great bunch of professionals and such wonderful people"

M T,  Smithers BC
Ret.Geologist

Neurological and cancer recovery

"I have MUCH more energy and am finally back to "normal person" sleep habits e.g. 10 pm - 6 am. Importantly, but less tangible, I feel like I am being restored, like I am getting my life back (I am able to parent again and this morning I drove with the radio on for the first time in 2 years!)...

Now I feel much more like "me" and experience far less of this "uneasy, wobbly" feeling. My brain is sharper --- after surgery, I completed writing up a study one sentence per day (which was published in the Lancet Public Health--proud brain cancer patient :) -- since oxygen therapy, I can write (and speak) far more fluently.

As a scientist, I understand that this is a "case report" and the inherent limitations in that. But behind case reports are sick human beings who are trying to heal.

I feel that it was only chance and my dogged determination to find something that would promote healing that led me to stumble upon hyperbaric oxygen treatment. If I had found it sooner, I would have been spared many months of misery and a far lesser quality of life. Please, if there is someone who you think it might benefit, open their eyes to the possibility that hyperbaric oxygen therapy may be of use."

“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."

Injury recovery

"In summer 2009 I have visited Dr. Sanja in her Baromedical Clinique regarding my sprain leg muscle.

I work in construction and I hit my thumb at my work so hard that I thought there was nothing left from it. That afternoon I had my appointment with Dr. Sanja for the leg issue. I went through three more visit  scheduled for the leg, but my thumb hasn’t gone through the color scheme, hasn’t bruise, and it wasn’t so painful as I expected.

At the end of the treatment (total of 5) my leg was almost recovered and my thumb was treated “free of charge” as a bonus.

Knowledgeable stuff help with the tips and advises to complete the recovery."

Ski injury recovery



"In February 2012 I had a ski accident and my left knees ligaments were twisted, sprained and almost torn. The doctors at the emergency suggested to put a cast, which would keep me off work for over 4 weeks. I called BaroMedical Clinic and book 5 appointments in 5 days. After the second appointment I was walking without any pain or discomfort.  At same day my colleague had the same type injury and waited 6 months for the surgery - however it is never the same for him.
For me, I was lucky to know Sanja and Klaus at BaroMedical and to get in for the treatment on time.
Thank you!"
