Neurogenesis is the growth and development of the nervous system with new neurons. Research has found that a 3-week course of HBOT not only targets oxygenation of the affected area and reduces inflammation but also promotes bone marrow stem cells and stimulates new brain tissue growth. These effects may help in neuronal repair after ischemic stroke and increasing the course of HBOT might enhance therapeutic effects on ischemic stroke.
Poor blood sugar control is the main reason why diabetics are at greater risk of heart attack and stroke. In a study of 52 patients who had a stroke (half within 10 days and the other half within 30 days) both groups were able to demonstrate a significant improvement in blood sugars after HBOT. “Peripheral insulin sensitivity was increased following HBOT in type 2 diabetes patients with intracerebral hemorrhage. HBOT may be effective for diabetes patients with acute stroke and is a safe and harmless adjunctive treatment”

Oxygen is vital to every cell in our bodies. It is at the heart of our energy and vitality, recovery and rejuvenation, healing and performance. As we age and as our environment becomes more polluted, our bodies become increasingly deoxygenated. Our bodies cannot sufficiently enhance cellular oxygen through supplementation or diet.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy uses controlled and safe single or double-person occupancy chambers that are pressurised with ambient air (21% oxygen). This is scientifically proven to increase absorption of greater amounts of blood oxygen which combusts with food in the body to produce ATP, which converts to energy.
