Ovarian cancer patients need to know about HBOT! According to the CDC, ovarian cancer is the second most common gynecological cancer. It is vital for patients to begin treatment as soon as possible, so knowing the symptoms is crucial. A few of these symptoms include abdominal swelling, quickly feeling full, weight loss, fatigue and back pain. Women need to check with their doctor regularly and discuss any potential symptoms. Once diagnosed, any and all options must be considered, including oxygen therapy from Advanced Hyperbaric Recovery INC.
People think that cancer cells thrive on oxygen, and therefore oxygen therapy would not benefit the patient. But, low oxygen in cells may be a cause for cancer growth. “Low oxygen levels in a cell interrupt the activity of oxidative phosphorylation, a term for the highly efficient way that cells normally use to convert food to energy,” according to sciencedaily.com. Hypoxia, which is low oxygen levels, is present in many cancer cells, including ovarian cancers. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is covered by most insurance, but it is not considered a cancer treatment; HBOT can work in conjunction with most cancer treatments and benefit a large number of people with post radiation effects.
Advanced Hyperbaric Recovery INC wants people to understand what HBOT can do for ovarian cancer patients. If you or a loved one suffers from post radiation cystitis, vaginitis, and proctitis with hematuria, HBOT can significantly heal these issues. We will work with your medical team as part of your recovery process, giving your cells 100% oxygen which they need. HBOT is a relaxing experience, and many patients experience faster recovery using the 100% medical grade chambers at Advanced Hyperbaric Recovery INC.
The most recent research indicates that patients responded favorably to HBOT and with little to no side effects. Some of these side effects include eye and ear problems, but they resolve themselves soon after treatment is ended.
Glenda Sales, a patient at Advanced Hyperbaric Recovery INC, took the time to investigate with her doctors what HBOT could do. “…I did my own research but I did bring it to my doctors and they were all in agreement that what I needed was a hard chamber in order to facilitate enough pressure and oxygen to reach my areas that needed to be treated. Do your research and get affiliated with somebody like Advance Hyperbaric Recovery because they have the highest chambers that are available right now on the market and because they are solid they can put you at a pressure and a type of oxygen that will penetrate this is very important because this is where the actual healing happens.” She wanted to get back to her life, and HBOT made recovery possible. Toward the end of her treatments, she was able to sit and walk comfortably! Glenda was able to live a full life after the complications from radiation. Once you see how affective HBOT can be, see if it will work for you and your symptoms. Call or email us today and we can schedule a consultation.
September is the time to acknowledge men suffering with prostate cancer. Cancer of the prostate occurs when cells begin to form in the prostate gland. It is a type of cancer where it can spread throughout the body as well, and it occurs mostly in men ages 65 or over. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is used to manage radiation induced proctitis and cystitis. Patients who get diagnosed with prostate cancer will undergo radiotherapy of the pelvic area. Complications can arise after treatment. This is where hyperbaric oxygen therapy comes in play, and the staff at Advanced Hyperbaric Recovery INC is available to answer any questions you may have.
5-15% of patients after radiation therapy may have complications such as cystitis. Cystitis includes symptoms such as hematuria, incontinence, and increased urinary frequency. Evidence is growing for pure oxygen therapy from medical grade pressure chambers for men with prostate cancer. Every 1 in 8 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime, and it is imperative that men know the treatments available in the medical community. HBOT improves the negative effects from cancer treatment and decreases the likelihood of mortality.
Advanced Hyperbaric Recovery INC has staff that is highly trained at working with patients who have suffered from radiation effects from their cancer treatment. Oxygen therapy is even approved by the FDA and can be paid for by insurance! Damaged cells need oxygen to replicate, and breathing 100% pure oxygen reduces pain, and heals the damaged tissue even around the affected site. “HBOT has gained great clinical recognition over the decade,” according to www.urotoday.com. More patients need to know about this wonderful healing method post surgery. HBOT has been tested to decrease the growth rate of cancer cells, and “increase sensitivity to anti-cancer agents” according to www.ncbi.gov.
There have been studies on HBOT and cancer to see what would happen to a cancer cell when exposed to 100% oxygen, like in the pressure chambers of Advanced Hyperbaric Recovery INC. Not only does hyperbaric therapy have no effect on increasing the cancer cells, it is being discovered that HBOT can deliver oxygen safely not only to the cancer, but to the entire body. Radiation therapy and surgical cancer treatments take care of the cancer, but that leaves the body with scar tissue that needs to be healed. HBOT takes care of the complications from treatment in a safe manner with little to no side effects.
Oxygen therapy from medical grade chambers is the only way this can be done. Cheaper oxygen therapy chambers will not be as effective as 100% oxygen. There are different chambers for different applications of oxygen therapy. Choose the correct one for your condition. Speak to your medical team to see if your treatments should include HBOT with 100% oxygen! Contact the team at Advanced Hyperbaric Recovery INC and we will work with your doctors in order to speed up your recovery, and keep you in remission from your cancer. We are honored to offer this treatment and be part of your health journey.
Recovery is part of the journey to good health, and it is imperative that people look at health differently. At Advanced Hyperbaric Recovery INC, we believe that taking care of yourself, healing yourself back to optimum health, helps heal the world. Mark Nepo said, “When we heal ourselves, we heal the world.” When we are at our best, we can participate in our communities and live life to the fullest. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy helps heal many conditions approved by the FDA such as non-healing wounds, exceptional blood anemia, and carbon monoxide poisoning. This month of September we will be focusing on how hyperbaric therapy can benefit you and your loved ones.
Hyperbaric therapy helps to heal the wound from the inside out, as the patient breathes 100% Medical Grade oxygen from the hyperbaric chamber under slight pressure. HBOT reduces swelling from the wound, and heals the surrounding tissue. Injuries need oxygen to heal, and with a medical grade chamber, hyperbaric therapy is essential for healing many conditions. Depending on the issue, a patient will need several treatments.
Staff at Advanced Hyperbaric Recovery INC will be present at all times, monitoring the session. The staff is expertly trained in the medical oxygen chambers, to keep you safe and to give appropriate feedback for your sessions. Gina Kitania stated that “I had the great good fortune to encounter Advanced Hyperbaric Recovery because I had orthopedic issues…ever since then, my recovery times from exertion or exercise are so much shorter.” She recommends her pre and post op patients to get hyperbaric recovery treatments. HBOT is a safe and effective way to get yourself back on your feet to complete recovery.
The medical grade chambers heal wounds faster when the patient breathes 100% Medical Grade Oxygen, instead of any percentage less than that in nonmedical chambers. Many people use hyperbaric chambers, such as scuba divers, fire fighters, athletes, CEO’s and celebrities . People who need to recover from surgery can do so by reducing swelling and pain, giving oxygen to the whole body, which will help the surgery site recover.
Hyperbaric therapy is sometimes the last piece in the puzzle for a person with chronic conditions to begin a life of healing. When a person heals from old wounds, a lingering infection, or detoxes from a toxic exposure, physically, they can move forward in life. WIthout chronic pain, a person can live life to the fullest and then help those around them better than ever before.
There are numerous benefits to hyperbaric oxygen therapy, including collagen production to help skin conditions. HBOT can help with cell repair, and skin cell damage. Hyperbaric therapy has been called “the fountain of youth” with good reason. Oxygen can benefit stem cells by doubling your stem cell production with one hyperbaric session and increasing your stem cell production 8-FOLD with 20 consecutive sessions. This action is also motivating the bone marrow to stimulate the osteoclasts and osteoblasts in the bone to heal fractures more completely and grow new bone stronger.
At Advanced Hyperbaric Recovery INC we encourage patients to ask questions on what we can do for them. You can send us an email or give a phone call and a knowledgeable staff member will help you begin your journey. Making the commitment to hyperbaric therapy is committing to improving your quality of life. And remember, when you heal yourself, you also heal the world.
