Internists skilled in the management of patients who have undifferentiated or multi-system disease processes could benefit from the effects of HBOT. Because internal medicine patients are often seriously ill or require complex treatments, HBOT can be a powerful addition to almost any therapeutic regimen by increasing oxygen content in the body to supra-physiologic levels, enhancing cell mitochondrial function and modulating over 8,000 genes on our DNA; up-regulating those responsible for growth and repair, and down-regulating those responsible for inflammation and apoptosis.

How can patients benefit from your care?

  • IL1, IL6, and TNF alpha down-regulation
  • Decreases inflammation
  • Exponential increases circulation of stem cells from bone marrow
  • Promotes angiogenesis
  • Enhancing mitochondrial function
  • Accelerating wound healing at all stages
  • Bactericidal to anaerobic and aerobic bacteria including clostridium species and staphylococcus (including MRSA)

What are the benefits of HBOT?


Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy improves the quality of life for the patient in many areas when standard treatment isn’t working

Can HBOT help you?


Yes. It can benefit conditions where low oxygen levels (hypoxia) and inflammation are present

The Oxygen for Life


Oxygen can be used therapeutically for a wide range of conditions where tissues have been damaged by oxygen deprivation
