Kenna - Lyme Disease
Hello, my name is Kenna, I suffer from Lyme disease symptoms and I am from Texas. I traveled out to Northern California specifically to get Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy from Advanced Hyperbaric Recovery of Marin because they are the best facility.
When I came to the facility, I was in so much pain. My face and arms were bright red and stinging from a terrible rash. My eyes were blurry, I was always dizzy and extremely weak and my kidneys were in constant pain. It’s was becoming impossible to live my life and I couldn’t imagine trying to go on without some sort of change, but very few things were working and I was running out of hope. Fortunately, I had heard of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and knew of someone who was treated at a facility in California that was about two hours from my previous home where I used to live. When I made a few calls to past patients asking if the center was worth it, I got a resounding yes and was told I had to make my way to Marin, no doubt about it.
The staff at Advanced Hyperbaric Recovery of Marin completely blew me away from day one. They treated me with so much respect and they really listened to everything I was saying. I felt like they genuinely wanted to help me get my life back.
The hyperbaric chamber was so comfortable and roomy. At first I was anxious about starting and going into the chamber and not knowing how I would feel. But the staff explained everything to me in a way that I could understand and that really calmed me down. Besides that, the oxygen always made me feel so much better while I was in the chamber that I couldn’t wait to get into treatment each day.
I started to notice that my face started to clear up and my energy levels were improving. As time went on and I completed more and more sessions, the Herx detox reactions would show up like clockwork as my body was finally getting rid of the lyme parasite. The treatment itself always made these reactions easier to handle, though and over time they became less intense.
I started feeling more and more normal, and I couldn’t believe it. I started getting a full night’s rest and my pain level went down from an 8 out of 10 at treatment one to a 1 out of ten by the 40th session! My fatigue level, my depression level and mental clarity all improved in the same way.
I was a completely different person on the last day of my treatment. I looked better and felt so much better that I can’t imagine where I would be right now if it weren’t for finding out about Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. And the staff here at Advanced Hyperbaric Recovery is so great in working with Lyme patients and how the healing process works. It’s not like any medical care I’ve ever gotten before, and I doubt you’ll find another facility as capable, as knowledgeable or as compassionate. They truly are the best and I won’t stop recommending this facility to others that were suffering, no matter what their distance, situation or obstacle. My life was changed and everyone deserves that same opportunity.
