Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Mild Hyperbaric Oxygenation Therapy (MHOT) is the use of 24% oxygen at greater than atmospheric pressure (1.3 ATA). This is the same oxygen we are breathing at 19 to 21 percent in the air. Under hyperbaric circumstances, oxygen adheres to all of the gas laws of physics and Henry's law, which states that if you increase the pressure of gas, there will be a directly proportional dissolution of said gas into any solute. Thus, in the body, the increase is noted in the red blood cells, the plasma, bone, lymph, urine, and most importantly, the cerebral spinal fluid.
Simple and Life Saving
Mild Hyperbaric Oxygenation Therapy is a simple, yet potentially life-saving treatment. By giving the body an overabundance of oxygen, this treatment helps to stimulate brain neurons in people suffering from cerebral palsy and other brain injuries, and it also treats un-healing wounds, which are related to diabetes. Research has shown that, when administered by a professional, hyperbaric oxygenation has many health benefits and can help cure or at least stall numerous neurological diseases, including cerebral palsy, cerebral ischemia, chronic childhood encephalopathy, narcotizing enterocolitis, anoxic encephalopathies of neonates, and intestinal ischemia.
