Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) in Scottsdale, Arizona
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is exposure to 100% oxygen using a pressurized chamber that hyper-oxygenates your blood. By breathing air that’s two to three times more pressurized than normal air, oxygen moves through your lungs and into your body, increasing blood oxygen and returning blood gases to normal levels. This helps fight the Borrelia bacteria and stimulates the release of stem cells and growth factors that encourage healing.
Typical hyperbaric oxygen therapy sessions are 45 minutes to two hours long and vary based on your condition, response, and tolerance. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is used to support your personalized treatment plan and is administered along with other therapies for maximum benefit.
Oxygen therapy for the treatment of Cancer and Lyme disease works by increasing the amount of oxygen your blood carries to damaged tissues. Both Cancer and Borrelia spirochetes are anaerobic, meaning they can’t exist in an oxygenated environment, so treatment with oxygen can be quite effective. Our patients report increased mobility with less joint pain, better cognitive function, increased energy, and more restful sleep. Oxygen therapy is primarily available through hyperbaric oxygen therapy and ozone therapy.
