One-Two Punch: Glutathione and HBOT

By Julian Whitaker, MD Parkinson’s disease is caused by the degeneration of neurons in the area of the brain that manufactures dopamine, a neurotransmitter that affects movement. As dopamine production drops, characteristic tremors and speech, balance, and motor problems develop. The primary treatment for Parkinson’s is drugs that replace or mimic dopamine, and though these meds improve symptoms, they do not slow disease […]

Anti-Aging Properties of Hyperbaric Oxygenation

By R.A. Neubauer, M.D. Medical Director, Ocean Hyperbaric Neurologic Center Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, Florida BACKGROUND On the phylogenetic scale, all mammals live to be 7 times their age of skeletal maturity. Man’s age of skeletal maturity is 20 years. In biblical times Methuselah lived to be 900 years of age. (Either related to the method of time measurement or a possible higher […]

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy effectively treats long-term damage from radiation therapy

More than 11 million people living in the U.S. today have been diagnosed with cancer, and about half of them have received radiation therapy (radiotherapy). While improved radiotherapy techniques have increased treatment precision and reduced side effects caused by radiotherapy, the high doses of radiation used to kill cancer cells may still cause long-term damage to nearby healthy cells in some […]

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy for the treatment of radiation-induced sequelae in children: The University of Pennsylvania experience

Hani L. Ashamalla M.D.,  Stephen R. Thom M.D., Ph.D.,  Joel W. Goldwein M.D. Abstract BACKGROUND The role of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy in the treatment of radiation-related sequelae in adults is well known. In contrast, its role in the management of radiation-related sequelae in children has not been well studied. In an effort to define its value better, the authors […]

The Effect of Hyperbaric Oxygen on Scleroderma

Background: Scleroderma is an autoimmune condition in which collagen deposits in abnormally high concentration in the subcutaneous tissue and other areas of the body. In some cases, this restricts blood supply to the skin and prevents normal wound healing. Wounds fester and become infected, decreasing oxygen delivery even further. Hyperbaric oxygen delivers oxygen to ischemic, marginal wounds and is known […]
