One of my favorite topics to discuss is how Alzheimer’s patients can benefit from hyperbaric oxygen. Maybe because conventional medicine really has no viable treatment options, or maybe because we see how the brain responds so quicky to oxygen. Over the last few years, we’ve seen positive research that shows that hyperbaric oxygen can stop the progression of Alzheimers. That in itself is very exciting. However, earlier this year, new research shows that it can help with the regression of the disease!
Alzheimer’s disease is characterized by plaques that grow in the brain, which then stop the flow of information along the neurons, leading to short term memory loss and ultimately loss of bodily function.Oxygen is the food that feeds our brain cells, allowing us to heal faster.
The research presented earlier this year shows with PET imaging that the brain works better after hyperbaric oxygen. And the patients feel better with less symptoms. What a simple solution for a dramatic problem. If you have someone in your life with Alzheimers, please give us a call and let us show you how hyperbaric oxygen therapy can help.
