Learn Why Hyperbaric Oxygen is My Go To Therapy
My Instagram Live from LA Hyperbaric Oxygen
I am a huge proponent of hyperbaric oxygen therapy and have been using it ever since I was diagnosed with a rapidly growing fibroadenoma (breast tumor) in 2013. It is a non-toxic and non-invasive treatment that enhances the body’s natural healing processes by providing the body with extra oxygen. HBOT can also help heal many chronic diseases including cancer and traumatic brain injury.
The chamber is pressurized with 100 percent oxygen to the equivalent of diving 33 to 45 feet below sea level. This increase in pressure allows more oxygen to be dissolved into the plasma (up to 10 to 20 times more than normal). The air we normally breathe is about 21 percent oxygen. Patients in a hyperbaric chamber are breathing roughly 200 percent to 240 percent oxygen.
Some of the many benefits of HBOT include:
Increases oxygenation to the body’s tissues
Increases blood flow and circulation
Boosts immune system
Reduces inflammation, swelling and pain
Increases collagen production
While research on hyperbaric oxygen and cancer patients is still limited, there is some evidence suggesting pressurized oxygen therapy could inhibit cancer growth, stimulate tumor regression and reduce the side effects of conventional treatments. Cancer thrives in hypoxic or low-oxygen environments and HBOT has been shown to increase these oxygen levels to weaken tumors and reduce their aggressiveness.
When I received my Giant Fibroadenoma diagnosis, I intuitively knew I had to address the root cause of my disease vs. the symptom aka the tumor. It was of course a huge sigh of relief to find out that the tumor I had, as big as it was, was not cancerous but despite of the excitement on my surgeon’s face when she told me the good news, I calmly translated it to: precursor to cancer. The fact that my body somehow produced a giant tumor equivalent to the size of a tennis ball is beyond abnormal and the classification of it, benign or cancerous, is almost inconsequential. Now it is my responsibility to create an inner and outer environment where diseases can no longer thrive. I was determined to make permanent lifestyle changes as well as incorporate natural therapies to heal my body from within and dodge a future cancer diagnosis. Some of us are lucky enough to have gotten a warning before the big one hits and I wasn’t going to take mine for granted.
Shortly before I had my surgery to remove the tumor, I had already begun to look into holistic cancer prevention modalities. After hours and hours of doing my own research, I decided to try HBOT. The case studies that I read on HBOT were very compelling and below is a short summary of the role of HBOT in cancer prevention.
Cancer Prevention with HBOT:
Decreases inflammatory markers
Normalizes intracellular oxygen levels
Stimulates cellular detoxification
Reduces risk of pathogenic inflammatory-related tumors
Supports cellular energy processes for optimal DNA repair
