Oxygen is not just a life-giver but also a healer; It boosts the body’s natural ability to fight off infections. Here’s how:
Oxygen: The Natural Healer
We have trillions of cells in our body, each of which has its own lifespan. New cells replace old ones all the time. The cells on the skin, for instance, have a lifespan of two to three weeks. Red blood cells thrive for four months or so while white blood cells live for around a year. The only cells that last a lifetime are the brain cells.
All these cells rely on oxygen for their birth, growth and health. A healthy body has cells that have the ability to heal from minor wounds and diseases. But in severe cases, or if the body is in poor health, germs win the war so the body finds it hard to recover. The blood is responsible for carrying oxygen to all parts of the body to revive the cells. When the cells are inflamed, blood flow reduces, slowing down oxygen supply. This is where Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) steps in to help you recover.
HBOT: The Pure Oxygen Supplier
HBOT therapy is simply a process to help boost oxygen supply to injured or inflamed areas. All you do is lie comfortably in a chamber that is sealed to allow pure oxygen to flush into your body and boost healing.
Air contains about 21% oxygen which is sufficient for healthy lungs. For chronic lung impairment, a bigger supply of oxygen is required to spring cells back to health. Oxygen therapy through HBOT helps regulate the correct oxygen flow to aid recovery.
Under the eye of a health professional, the flow of concentrated oxygen is carefully monitored and measured with a pulse oximeter. This is because both excessive oxygen and insufficient inhalation both can have serious consequences on your health. Some patients need therapy while sleeping at night while others are administered through the day. About 88% or more oxygen is required for effective healing.
HBOT is highly beneficial for patients with heart problems. It helps boost energy, mental alertness and improves the quality of sleep. As higher concentrations of pure life-giving oxygen flow through the body, infections and illnesses decline. Healthy cells get restored and the body begins to fight off bacteria, reduces toxins, removes free radicals and heals cell inflammation. Best of all, therapy is non-invasive and safe.
Earlier, oxygen therapy was used to treat divers with decompression illness but now it is used to treat many health conditions, including Lyme disease, brain injury, cardiac patients and Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD), non-healing wounds such as diabetic ulcers, burns, bone infections and more.
