HBOT for Lyme Disease

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy supports recovery from the disease with enriched oxygen, increasing blood flow and bringing essential nutrients to the cells. Lyme disease is a microaerophile, meaning that it thrives in low oxygen environments. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy can directly kill the organism by flooding it with oxygen.

HBOT treatments deliver high concentrations of oxygen under pressurized environments. The oxygen enters the body and effectively kills the disease-causing bacteria. While traditional therapy begins with antibiotics, many physicians are adding HBOT treatments at the same time, allowing the two treatments to work together to effectively cure the patient.

The high concentrations of oxygen help to treat symptoms and conditions that, for many, remain constant after test results show no more infection. In cases of PTLDS, HBOT often provides relief when nothing else does. Conditions such as joint and muscle pain, chronic inflammation, cognitive complications, and nerve damage often return to normal during the treatment.

Dr. Stella Parks:

“The human body needs oxygen to survive and thrive. When a person has impaired blood flow from an injury or illness, then optimal recovery can be difficult. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy supports the transport of much needed nutrients, including oxygen, into the tissues for enhanced healing and recovery. “

Benefits of Oxygen Therapy:

  • Removal of Bacteria and Toxins
  • Production of Stem Cells
  • New Blood Vessels and Better Blood Flow
  • Stimulates the Production of White Blood Cells
  • Repairs Brain Function
  • Damaged Organs Recover

How HBOT Treats Lyme Disease:

The increased levels of oxygen in the blood delivered from HBOT kills off bacteria and viruses, while also removing heavy metals and toxins often present with Lyme disease. The oxygenation helps stimulate the production of additional stem cells in the body, which helps repair damaged tissue and alleviate joint and muscle pain associated with chronic Lyme disease.
These treatments effectively reduce the levels of inflammation in the body by helping to grow and establish new blood vessels to allow oxygen-rich blood to reach inflamed tissues.

What is HBOT?

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) can help people recover from a number of often serious conditions.  It involves breathing 100% oxygen in a pressurized chamber. The pressurization allows for greater oxygen absorption in the body and hyper oxygenates the blood plasma in ways other treatments cannot. As your blood carries the oxygen throughout your body, it helps fight bacteria and stimulates the release of growth factors and stem cells, which promote healing.
