HyperBaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) as Cancer Therapy

HBOT Stimulates Stem Cells, Heals Radiation Damage and may even Kill Cancer

I am a long-term cancer survivor and cancer coach. As a long-term cancer survivor who studies non-conventional healing therapies I have a unique perspective about what works and what doesn’t work for healing all types of health problems. The main reason why I have a unique perspective about the efficacy of therapies is my skepticism about what conventional medicine calls evidence-based therapies.

I mean, what could concussions, stem cells and radiation damage all have in common? Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT).

The only other evidence-based therapy discussed in the article linked and excerpted below is what the journalist calls “ a cheap nutritional supplement, N-acetylcysteine.” Though the article questions the evidence-based nature of NAC’s ability to heal concussions, the study’s are good enough for me.

I’ve tried HBOT and I supplement with N-acetylcysteine.

Do you have radiation damage? Are you a cancer survivor? If you would like to learn more about evidence-based, non-conventional therapies scroll down the page, post a question or a comment and I will reply ASAP.

Thank you,

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy for late radiation tissue injury in gynecologic malignancies

“Based on the evidence and expert consensus opinion,

  • HBO2 is likely effective for late radiation tissue injury of the pelvis, with demonstrated efficacy specifically for radiation damage to the anus and rectum;
  • the main indication for HBO2 therapy in gynecologic oncology is in the management of otherwise refractory chronic radiation injury;
  • HBO2 may provide symptomatic benefit in certain clinical settings (for example, cystitis, soft-tissue necrosis, and osteonecrosis); and
  • HBO2 may reduce the complications of gynecologic surgery in patients undergoing surgical removal of necrosis…”

Stem cell mobilization by hyperbaric oxygen

The results from this study demonstrate that exposure to HBO2 will cause rapid mobilization of SPCs in humans, and the number of SPCs remain elevated in blood over the course of 20 HBO2treatments. On the basis of the responses in normal human controls, it appears that previous exposure to radiation diminishes the response to one HBO2 treatment. Radiotherapy is known to reduce the mobilization that occurs in response to chemotherapeutic agents and growth factors…”

Effective Concussion Treatment Remains Frustratingly Elusive, Despite a Booming Industry

“One patient, Rashada Parks, said that she had struggled with neck pain, mood swings and concentration problems ever since she fell and hit her head more than three years ago…. But after 40 hourlong treatments, or dives, in a hyperbaric chamber, her symptoms have subsided

While the vast majority quickly recover with rest, a small percentage of patients experience lingering effects a year or longer afterward. Along with memory issues, symptoms can include headaches, dizziness and vision and balance problems…

While agreement exists on the symptoms that define a concussion at the time when one occurs, a similar definition did not — and still does not — exist to describe what happens after a concussion, including how the injury’s symptoms change over time…

Dr. Harch, the New Orleans-area physician, is a true believer in the benefits of hyperbaric oxygen. In his book, “The Oxygen Revolution,” he claims the treatment not only helps treat post-concussion syndrome, but also autism and Alzheimer’s disease

A concussion expert with the Mayo Clinic, Dr. David W. Dodick, said he believed a cheap nutritional supplement, N-acetylcysteine, could help treat concussion symptoms, and he hoped to study it…
