Hyperbaric Chamber

The Power of Oxygen:  Ageless Bodies.  Beautiful Skin

As always, our focus remains Natural Health and Beauty.  Ageless bodies.  Beautiful skin.  Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is an outstanding all natural therapy with no side effects that will help you to look and feel your best!  There is no other anti-aging therapy that is so effortless and yet so effective.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy HBOT is used at spas that focus on the health of the body as well as the health and beauty of the skin.  The applications include:

 
  • skin and body rejuvenation
  • anti-aging
  • weight loss
  • skin toning
  • banishing cellulite
  • wrinkles reduction
  • detoxification
  • stimulation of the immune system
  • longevity
  • anti-inflammatory
  • stem cell proliferation

Skin disorders such as acne, eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea can be successfully addressed with hyperbaric oxygen.  Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy increases collagen production and chances of hair follicle growth after re-implantation.  HBOT can help with various digestive disorders from nutrient absorption to IBS.

Benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen for Anti-Aging

  • Increases collagen and elastin production
  • Increases antioxidant production 
  • Increases neuronal energy metabolism in the brain
  • Can improve concentration and cognitive function
  • Wakes up sleeping (idling) brain cells that are metabolizing enough to stay alive but are not actively "firing"
  • Enhances the body’s immune system and ability to fight infection
  • Detoxifies the body (e.g. side effects from chemotherapy or radiation, spider bites, air pollution, etc.)
  • Removes free radicals
  • Reduces swelling
  • Acts as an anti-inflammatory

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) utilizes concentrated oxygen to increase the amount of oxygen in the blood. The concentrated oxygen is absorbed through the skin and from breathing and goes directly into the blood. The superficial capillary beds get "supersaturated" with oxygen. This higher O2 level increases the circulation of blood and lymph. The oxygen nourishes cells and cleanses as it circulates. The chamber is inflated to 1.3- 1.4 ATM (atmospheric pressure). The chamber is filled with concentrated oxygen so no tanks are necessary. Treatments are one hour long and are generally relaxing. Most people rest well and then feel energized after a session.

Hyperbaric Oxygen is Used For:

Cleansing/Detoxifying

HBOT is an excellent modality to improve immune function and to support cleansing. Any comprehensive cleansing program includes some form of oxygen therapy.

Metabolic Problems

Weight gain, insulin resistance, diabetes and obesity result from inflammation a crippled metabolism. Oxygen increases cellular respiration, also called aerobic reactions. Cells need oxygen to create clean energy. Without adequate oxygen, the cellular reactions ferment, leading to acidic and toxic residues. These toxins then damage and disrupt the intricate metabolism of cells, leading to weight gain and toxicity.  

Nerve Pain

I find good results in treating nerve problems, especially those related to scar tissue. I have also noted improved nerve function for certain types of neuropathy. The nerves themselves are fibrous. I believe the oxygen improves conduction by stimulating the conductive fibers.

Immune Support

Oxygen treatments have been used in Europe for decades to treat immune problems. Because oxygen inhibits bacteria, yeasts, and cells infected with a virus, it helps the immune system destroy and process harmful bugs.  I recommend increased oxygen for people with hepatitis, HIV, herpes, shingles, Lyme disease, parasites, candida, etc. Colds and flu can respond to oxygen therapy since the boost in oxygen helps cells scavenge and eliminate the bacterial or viral cells that are causing the symptoms.

Wound Healing

At Integrated Skin Care and Root Causes Holisic Health and Medicine , we do not have the capacity to treat severe wounds including gangrene, diabetic ulcerations  and bed sores.  Grossmont Hospital has a chamber that is suited to these patients.

Brain and nerve problems

Conditions like MS, Parkinson's, epilepsy, dementia and some types of anxiety involve lesions on the brain. Brain cells are especially sensitive to oxygen depletion. Increasing oxygen to the brain is paramount for these conditions to improve.

Trauma

Any trauma, whether it is a fall, a car accident, a bruise, a surgery, or overuse injuries, causes damage to tissue. When your body's tissues are compromised, they do not perform their functions well and some other part of your body suffers. One of the most basic ingredients needed to repair tissue is oxygen.

Scar Tissue

Hyperbaric oxygen even helps heal old traumas that have scarred over and become avascular (no blood supply). The oxygen supercharges the capillaries so that they can penetrate the dense, fibrous scar tissue and create vital, innervated tissue. To heal scars we have to get the body to grow blood vessels into the scar so that skin (or muscle) can be sustained. It has been proven by the medical establishment that oxygen rich capillaries are better able to penetrate the dense scar. Once the capillaries grow through the scar, skin cells can grow back.

Cancer?

Many cancer cells have been shown to dislike oxygen so it stands to reason that increasing oxygen levels in the blood would tend to inhibit those cells. At the present time, the FDA does not approve oxygen therapy as a treatment for cancer.

Skin Rashes

Hyperbaric Oxygen also supports healthy skin. Oxygen therapies are useful for skin rashes, including psoriasis and eczema.

Facial Rejuvenation

HBO is used in spas for increasing radiance and for reducing wrinkles. It is an integral part of complete facial rejuvenation packages including: advanced nutritive facials, lymphatic massage, acupuncture with micro-current stimulation, and hyperbaric.

Athletic Performance

World-class triathletes have used hyperbaric oxygen for many years with excellent results. Clinical trials have shown: decreased recovery time after workouts, decreases in resting heart rate, better sleep, less muscle soreness, and increased speed and endurance.

Heavy Metals detoxification

HBOT plays a role in improving oxygen levels in the brain which could help regulate and repair tissue damaged from metals. There is likely a protective aspect to increasing oxygen that helps safeguard cells from damage due to exposure.
