What is Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) ?
Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy located at Icelandic Fitness in Denver, CO is a safe, effective method of delivering oxygen to the body at a cellular level. It is in the combination of Pressure and Oxygen combined together that allows the body to begin to heal on its own.
Increasing pressure has beneficial effects on the body, including oxygenating the cells, reducing swelling and inflammation, improving blood flow and circulation.
We use Hyperbaric treatment at Icelandic Fitness as a way for our athletes to quickly recover from soreness or fatigue for increased sports performance.
How does Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy help?
Most illnesses are caused by microbial organisms. Our cells are toxic due to the high levels of environmental pollutants and the preservatives in our foods. When cells become congested with toxins, they don’t allow for sufficient oxygen to enter the cell, and the cell becomes predisposed to disease. HBOT increases the strength of the cell and forces oxygen into the cell to aid in the detoxifying process. Our cells love and need oxygen to thrive! The good news is that bacteria, fungi, microbes, and viruses cannot survive in an oxygen-rich environment!
The idea for HBOT and athletic performance was originally developed through scuba diving when divers reported feeling refreshed and invigorated, even after surfacing. Some even noted that their joint stiffness disappeared and that their focus became very sharp. Today, medical studies on the healing properties of HBOT have triggered this therapy’s growth beyond the diving world. HBOT has been proven beneficial for not only athletic performance, but also a wide range of diseases. These include: stroke, autism, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, Lyme disease, Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease. It also can help individuals recovering from any type of surgery (plastic, reconstructive) as it facilitates wound healing.
There are many expected benefits of HBOT, which include:
- Increase of oxygen to tissues 25 times normal levels
- Stimulates production of body stem cells
- Boosts immune function and increases ability to fight infection
- Decreases swelling and inflammation
- Promotes regeneration of injured tissues
- Reduces fatigue from chronic inadequate oxygen supply to cells and tissues
- Reduces jet lag related fatigue
- Decreases ligament healing time
- Successfully treats traumatic and ischemic brain injuries, like strokes
