Hyperbaric Oxygen for Health
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) involves breathing oxygen in a pressurized chamber in which the atmospheric pressure is raised up to three times higher than normal. Under these conditions, the lungs can gather up to three times more oxygen than would be possible breathing oxygen at normal air pressure.
Body tissues need an adequate supply of oxygen to function. When tissue is injured, it may require more oxygen to heal. HBOT increases the amount of oxygen dissolved in blood. An increase in blood oxygen may improve oxygen delivery for vital tissue function to help fight infection or minimize injury.
Dr. Andy Rosenfarb, founder and clinical director of AcuVision Acupuncture in Westfield, New Jersey, is a world-renowned expert in the field of of Chinese Medical Opthalmology. HBOT is one of its latest additions to the AcuVision Clinic and part of its OxyVision Therapy Programs. “In addition to eye conditions, there are now over 120 reported conditions for which hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been shown to be effective and beneficial according to numerous published medical studies,” states Rosenfarb.
HBOT is safe for everyone. In fact, HBOT yields wonderful results on both children and elderly patients. Research with children suffering from brain-injuries and genetic disorders shows positive results and great promise. From physical injuries, neurological conditions, autoimmune disorders and more—HBOT may provide the oxygen boost needed for healing.
