What Is Hyperbaric Therapy?
Hyperbaric therapy uses oxygen in a pressurized environment to produce effects in the body's cells. The procedure is not invasive, which makes it a great option for those who do not want to undergo surgery. This form of treatment can increase oxygen levels throughout the body, allowing all the organs to take in more oxygen.
How Hyperbaric Therapy Can Help with Dementia and Alzheimer's
When it comes to dementia and Alzheimer's, hyperbaric therapy may last for one to three hours per day. It can be paired with other therapeutic options like brain detoxification to improve the results. Studies suggest that hyperbaric oxygen therapy may have the ability to enhance cognitive performance in healthy adults. Further research could indicate this treatment option helps those with dementia as well.
Hyperbaric oxygen treatment promotes the flow of blood and oxygen to the brain, helping the brain get more oxygen in spite of proteins getting in the way. Hyperbaric treatments achieve this by pressurizing oxygen. The pressure from Hyperbaric therapy fills the blood plasma with oxygen and drives the healing potential of oxygen deeper into the tissues. This treatment could potentially slow down the progression of these conditions, making life safe and more enjoyable.
