What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

The hyperbaric chamber increases the pressure of oxygen exposure to your body with the purpose of increasing the oxygen availability to the cells so that healing is stimulated.

The Hyperbaric Chamber

Our body's energy depends on oxygen at a cellular level, especially in the brain. When our body is sick, it can't use the oxygen in the air properly. A hyperbaric chamber helps by increasing the amount of oxygen in the body. This can help with healing and conditions related to the nervous, immune, and circulatory systems, among others. It can also help with stress reduction and anti-aging. At Wellness Institute of Neurodevelopment, the chamber is be used alone or in combination with other treatments to speed up recovery, depending on the condition and severity.

Part 2 that shows Eden's journey through her hyperbaric treatments with Dr. Paul Harch and physical therapy. On Feb 29, 2016 Eden drowned in a swimming pool. She technically died for nearly 2 hours. Miracle after miracle has brought her back to us. Her "non-fatal drowning" caused damage to some of her deep grey matter and left her with an anoxic brain injury. This is part of her story.

Here is a great TEDx talk with Dr. Shai Efrati speaking on reverse aging using hyperbaric therapy.
