The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved HBOT to treat more than a dozen health problems such as decompression sickness, carbon monoxide poisoning, gangrene, brain abscess, and injuries in which tissues are not getting enough oxygen.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a treatment that involves providing the body with extra oxygen. ‘Hyper’ means increased and ‘baric’ relates to pressure. In HBO therapy, pure oxygen is given to patients in chambers known as hyperbaric oxygen chambers.
HBO therapy can help in a number of different situations where body tissues have suffered from a decrease in oxygen levels. These include:
- decompression illness (‘the bends’)
- severe carbon monoxide poisoning
- smoke inhalation
- chronic wounds and some infections
- wound healing after reconstructive surgery
- radiation necrosis (body tissue dying off after radiotherapy treatment)
- acute blood loss where a blood transfusion is not possible (for Jehovah’s Witnesses, for example)
- relief of symptoms in multiple sclerosis
- sports injuries
- diabetic foot ulcers.
Oxygen is carried around the body by the blood. Breathing in 100% (pure) oxygen under increased pressure (HBO) allows extra oxygen to be taken up by the bloodstream and dissolved at a far greater rate than normal. This extra oxygen can help where healing is slowed down by infection or where blood supply is limited by damage to the tissues.
- assists healing by raising tissue oxygen levels to normal in areas where they are reduced through illness or injury
- encourages new blood vessels to grow and carry additional blood
- increases the ability of the body’s defense mechanisms to fight infection and kill bacteria
- helps reduce any swelling that may occur around the area.
Oxygen Levels and Cancer Cells
The link between oxygen and cancer is clear. In fact, an underlying cause of cancer is low cellular oxygenation levels. In newly formed cells, low levels of oxygen damage respiration enzymes so that they cells cannot produce energy using oxygen. These cells can then turn cancerous.
Low oxygen levels in cells may be a fundamental cause of cancer. There are several reasons cells become poorly oxygenated. An overload of toxins clogging up the cells, poor quality cell walls that don’t allow nutrients into the cells, the lack of nutrients needed for respiration, poor circulation and perhaps even low levels of oxygen in the air we breathe.
Cancer cells produce excess lactic acid as they ferment energy. Lactic acid is toxic, and tends to prevent the transport of oxygen into neighboring normal cells. Over time as these cells replicate, the cancer may spread if not destroyed by the immune system.
Recent research has found that an effective way to support the body’s fight against cancer would be to get as much oxygen as you can into healthy cells, and improving their ability to utilize oxygen. Raising the oxygen levels of normal cells would help prevent them from becoming cancerous.
