If you are interested in learning more about a revolutionary healing technology, please attend the presentation on Wednesday, December 13, from 2:30-3:30 PM, in the Mt. Ashland Room. Physicians from the newly-opened Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment Center of Southern Oregon in Ashland, Scott Sherr, MD, and Dawn Lemanne, MD, MPH, are eager to share their expertise and answer your questions about this natural healing remedy...
What if the only thing you had to do to feel better was breathe? Well, that’s Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, commonly referred to as “HBOT,” in a nutshell. Administered through a vessel known as a hyperbaric chamber, HBOT is a gentle, non-invasive procedure, with very few risks and side effects, which involves patients’ simply breathing prescription 100% pure oxygen at pressurized levels.
Absorbing pure pressurized oxygen into the body causes a cascade of dramatically positive changes, including an increase in stem cell production, creation of new blood vessels, optimization of cellular energy, and generally making more efficient all stages of wound healing. HBOT has a simple, yet impactful, method to improve healing – by delivering the most essential nutrient, oxygen, to parts of the body that aren’t otherwise receiving it. This is vital in conditions such as difficult nonhealing wounds, tissue damage from radiation therapy, severe infections, and other traumas. Studies have also shown benefits for using HBOT in certain types of strokes, traumatic brain injuries, cancer synergy, multiple sclerosis, Lyme disease, and other autoimmune, neurologic and chronic pain conditions.
