Media Finally Noticing HBOT?

The value of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is reinforced by two articles that recently appeared in the Washington Post. A March 1 piece reported on a young man with autism who is being treated with a new stimulation device because he has trouble with mobility and speech.

Likewise, in my book, “The Oxygen Cure,” there a story of a young boy with autism who was nonverbal. After undergoing HBOT, he is now able to answer the telephone.

The other article in the Washington Post appeared on March 18. It was about a man who developed a strep infection from his son and ended up in the hospital with a severe disease, losing both hands and feet before he was discharged.

Once again, in my book there is information about a military veteran who lost one leg in Iraq and was hospitalized because of a nonresponding infection in his remaining leg. He was told that the doctors wanted to amputate that leg as well.

Fortunately, he had friends who practice HBOT on horses, and they suggested he check out of the hospital where he was and go to one where he could get HBOT. After 23 HBOT treatments in the second hospital, his infection was under control. Six years later, he is still walking on that leg.

Recently, there was also a follow-up on the young girl, Jessica McClue, who was trapped at the bottom of a well for a couple of days. After her rescue, surgeons initially believed that she would lose her foot. She had also suffered a severe injury to her brain.

Fortunately, with HBOT she lost only a toe and has not had any lasting cognitive problems from her head injury. She is now married with children.

Yet I have never seen the media mention that she received treatment at the hospital where she was admitted.

In fact the chamber in which Jessica was treated was later purchased by the father of one of my brother’s multiple sclerosis patients because she was tired of having to drive to Dallas for her monthly HBOT.. With Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy she is completely clear of her MS symptoms and is doing quite well.

There are many other health problems that can benefit from HBOT. But remember, in the U.S. we have approved only 17 indications for the treatment, while in China there are 67.

Therefore, there is the need to spread the word about this valuable treatment in many chronic diseases.
