The brain is an intriguing, yet complex and dynamic organ. For example, did you know that the brain’s storage capacity is considered virtually unlimited? Or that brain information travels up to an impressive 268 miles per hour?* It also has the inherent ability to regain its healthy functioning after head trauma, if the recovery process is taken seriously. Even a mild impact on the head can disrupt the brain’s functioning: no brain injury should be taken lightly.
With a mild concussion, for example, most people recover a majority if not all of their brain function within three months following injury. However, this doesn’t mean the brain injury is less painful or has less long-lasting effects than a severe concussion. Indeed, the more acute the trauma, the more complex the healing process can be, so using tools to speed up the recovery process can be extremely helpful.
As you may know, hyperbaric oxygen therapy has become a complementary treatment for people affected by various forms of head trauma or cognitive decline. Indeed, people who need easily accessible and long-term mHBOT brain care sessions are enjoying mHBOT chambers such as the OxyNova and Summit-to-sea ones, in the comfort of their homes.
MHBOT’s primary mechanism is to hyper-oxygenate your body’s tissues, and the pressure (1.3 or 1.5 ATM) helps increase dissolved oxygen in the plasma. This environment triggers multiple healing processes without overwhelming the body’s antioxidant system. Using oxygen under pressure can help improve cerebral blood flow through micro-vessels and target injured areas to decrease inflammation. This powerful non-invasive anti-inflammatory effect is one of the significant advantages of mHBOT, which clears the way for natural healing.
MHBOT has been documented to:
- Increase oxygen saturation in the brain.
- Reduce cerebral edema and neuroinflammation.
- Grow new blood vessels (Angiogenesis).
- Increase stem cell production (of brain cells).
- Repair gray matter (which contains nerve cell bodies).
- Repair white matter (the filaments that connect cell bodies and carry messages between nerve cells).
- Reach all oxygen-deficient areas of the brain to reactivate neurons.
- Stimulate the immune system.
Oxygen supplementation by mHBOT can provide effective results as part of a system of therapies. In addition, given its low number of contraindications, risks, and side effects, it may be one of the safest therapies to use within the correct protocols.
