Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy In London
The Body Cleansing and Rejuvenating Clinic in south west London has added a mild Hyperbaric Oxygen chamber to its range of treatments.
Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (mHBOT) is a type of oxygen therapy that causes a rise in the body’s blood plasma oxygen content. This results in enhanced oxygen delivery to the tissues, brain and organs of the body. By spending time in an hyperbaric oxygen chamber additional oxygen is dissolved in the blood plasma and goes directly into the tissues. This stimulates the body’s own healing processes, as well as increasing stamina and endurance.
In 1966, Nobel Prize winner Dr Otto Warburg confirmed that the key precondition for the development of cancer is a lack of oxygen on the cellular level. In addition it is well known that bacteria, parasites, toxins, and viruses all have one thing in common – they cannot survive in an oxygen rich environment.
Chronic oxygen deficiency weakens our immune system making us more vulnerable to a wide range of diseases.
Today mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy may be used to help those with allergies, arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, circulatory problems, acid stomach, stress, headaches, migraines, eczema, psoriasis, sports injuries and sleeping disorders, including jetlag. In particular it has helped people with diabetic complications, impaired lung capacity, heart disease, patients recovering from plastic or cosmetic surgery, and those suffering from stroke, Alzheimer, Parkinson’s, Autism, brain dysfunctions and HIV-related disorders. It also helps to fight ageing.
In addition, mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been shown to enhance performance in physical exercise and competitive athletics with over 300 NFL footballers in the USA regularly using hyperbaric chambers.
Mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy is frequently used in conjunction with other therapies to achieve results quicker.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Henry’s Law states that “a gas is dissolved by a liquid in direct proportion to its partial pressure.” So by increasing the pressure and also the proportion of oxygen in the air when we are breathing, we can increase the amount of oxygen (i.e. the gas) that the blood plasma (i.e. the liquid) absorbs.
A Mild Hyperbaric oxygen chamber is an inflatable chamber that can be pressurised to allow the person inside to experience atmospheric pressures greater than the normal environmental pressures. Once you are inside the chamber the air pressure is raised and at the same time the proportion of oxygen in the air that you are breathing, is increased from the normal 21% to up to 50%, making the oxygen denser, which provides more oxygen molecules per unit. This allows the blood to absorb more than triple the oxygen it normally carries. The body diffuses the extra oxygen to the surrounding body tissues, making it available for healing and fighting pathogens. Your body, when in the chamber, is now an oxygen rich environment – and bacteria, parasites, toxins, and viruses are less able to survive in this oxygen rich environment.
