Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy has been readily utilized for a limited number of conditions in the US. The mechanisms of action which include but are not limited to the reduction of inflammatory cytokines, balancing the immune system, increased ATP production, growth factor release, stem cell release and re-establishing the oxygen gradient have all been studied in great detail. This therapy is safe and effective and has strong research backing as a regenerative and healing modality. There are currently over 100 internationally recognized indications it can be used for including autoimmune disorders, microbiome balancing and gut/brain barrier healing.
