MEDICALChronic Illness and Hyperbaric Therapy

MHBOT is used to treat all conditions which benefit from increased tissue oxygen availability. Thousands of people have had dramatic and, in many instances, life changing improvements in their conditions as a result of Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.

MHBOT is currently used in the management and co-management of 80 medical conditions world-wide including Autism Cerebral Palsy, Lyme Disease, Migraine, Multiple Sclerosis, Near Drowning, Recovery from Plastic Surgery, Sports Injuries, Stroke, Traumatic Brain Injury.

Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is used to treat several medical conditions. Your doctor may suggest hyperbaric oxygen therapy if you have one of the following conditions:

  • Anemia, severe
  • Brain abscess
  • Bubbles of air in your blood vessels (arterial gas embolism)
  • Burn
  • Decompression sickness
  • Carbon monoxide poisoning
  • Crushing injury
  • Deafness, sudden
  • Gangrene
  • Infection of skin or bone that causes tissue death
  • Non-healing wounds, such as a diabetic foot ulcer
  • Radiation injury
  • Skin graft or skin flap at risk of tissue death
  • Vision loss, sudden and painless

Autism

In the UAE region there is a very high rate of children born with Autism. While the cause of Autism remains unknown, many medical professionals (along with existing research) say Autism may be caused by a state of hypoxia, or lack of oxygen to areas of the brain. While there is currently no known cure for Autism, researchers are very encouraged by the use of Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (MHOT) in treating Autism.

The rationale in using MHBOT in the treatment of Autism is that it increases cerebral blood flow and thus oxygen to areas of the brain, which are thought to be oxygen deficient.

Environmental toxins have been linked to autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and are thought to exacerbate the symptoms of these conditions. Oxygen acts as a cleansing agent in the body, flushing out toxins and helping cells and tissues to heal from their harmful effects. In addition, increasing the availability of oxygen to the brain through MHOT enhances cognitive functioning. Brain scans have shown significantly increased brain function in children who have undergone 40+ hyperbaric oxygen treatments.
