How HBOT can help many with Challenges

The more I think and read about the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for people who have challenges such as Autism, the more I like it. I do wonder why this Therapy is not more widely used.

While the HBOT (Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy) may not be a cure all, I think it would be safer than all of the prescription drugs that doctors try to put us on. I don’t know why insurances won’t cover this therapy. I suppose when you boil it all down it just comes back to money and greed.

“Someday, when HBOT is an established part of accepted medical care, historians of twentieth century medicine will wonder how so much supportive research could have been published by competent medical researchers and then be scrupulously ignored by the guardians of our health. By that time, most of the individuals who attempted to keep HBOT on the fringe will probably not be alive to blush, sparing them extensive embarrassment.”

HBOT can help many many people that have;

(* Conditions marked with an asterisk below are sometimes reimbursed for a short time by Medicare and other medical insurance in the U.S., but only if strictly defined diagnostic criteria are met.)

I would encourage many people that have been/are or know of any family who is afflicted with any of these diseases please, do your own research on the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and persue it.HBO_Chamber
