Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber Therapy
'That natural clinic' are proud to house a world-class 2 person clinical hyperbaric oxygen chamber.
What is a Hyperbaric Oxygen chamber?
A hyperbaric oxygen chamber is a long pressurized oxygenated tube that people/ animals can lay or sit in (depending on the size of the chamber)
A hyperbaric oxygen chamber increases the atmospheric pressure and uses oxygen or oxygen concentrators (safer option) to increase the oxygen percentage inside the pressurised chamber.
All chambers use the concept of Henry's Law, which states that gas under pressure will disperse into liquid, which means that using a hyperbaric oxygen chamber can increase the amount of free oxygen in a persons plasma, cerebral spinal fluid and lymph fluid, allowing healing to take place.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is not new. In fact the first documented use of a HBOT dates right back to 1662 when Dr. Henshaw developed an airtight chamber and had great success in treating breathing and digestive disorders in it.
Why is oxygen important?
Oxygen is the primary nutrient to each and every cell in the body. It is oxygen that keeps us alive, promotes healing and is the one substance our brains so desperately need.
We can go approximately 6 weeks without food, 6 days without water, but without oxygen, our brain will only last approximately 6 minutes before it succumbs. (These figures can slightly vary depending on the situation)
Did you know that our oxygen levels have decreased dramatically since the age of the dinosaurs. Air bubbles trapped in fossils found that the air used to contain 37%Oxygen, whereas these days we breath about 21% oxygen and about 79%Nitrogen. The oxygen content in some heavily polluted cities has been measured at only 12-15%!
The graph above demonstrates the internal healing process that occurs when oxygen is increased within the body.
The chamber treats the basic disease process while rebuilding the basic building blocks of life.
What conditions might the chamber assist with?
There are many, but here’s a quick list:
Auto-immune disorders (from arthritis to sclerodema), stokes (TBI), sports injuries, cerebral palsy, chronic fatigue, concussion, dementia, fibromyalgia, hangovers, jet lag, substance abuse, autism, Asperger's, skin conditions, digestive disorders, detoxification, ADHD, plastic surgery (healing time halved), depression, parkinson's disease, multiple sclerosis
ANY disease / condition that causes inflammation will respond positively to Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy!
In a lot of cases, Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy is the missing link in a successful treatment plan and also enhance life for people who aren't sick or in pain.
Here at 'That Natural Clinic' we are proud to house a world-class 2 person mHBOT chamber.
Here's a quick overview of our chamber:
-Our chamber has a controlled oxygen flow which can deliver between 1L- 10L of 90-97% Oxygen per minute; making it an industry leader.
-Our chamber uses an oxygen concentrator instead of oxygen tanks, making the risk of fire/ explosions very little compared to hard chambers.
-Our chamber is the only chamber in the world that has carbon scrubbers installed as standard. The scrubbers are a very important piece of technology to prevent carbon dioxide build-up and filtrate pollutants.
-Our chamber is made out of medical grade thick thermoplastic polyurethane
-The joints are heat welded to ensure that no toxic glues were needed.
- Our chamber contains intercom facilities &has an oximeter which allows clients to measure their blood oxygen levels
