HBOT For Lyme Disease

Lyme disease is often, but not always, accompanied by a rash that looks like a bull’s-eye at the site of a tick bite Lyme Disease is caused by a corkscrew-shaped bacterium (spirochete) called Borreliaburgdorferi that is primarily transmitted by deer ticks, which carry the bacteria in their stomachs. It’s interesting to note that this is a relatively new disease, having only been formally recognized in 1975. If Lyme disease is not diagnosed and treated early, the spirochetes can spread and may go into hiding in different parts of the body. Weeks, months or even years later, patients may develop problems with the brain and nervous system, muscles and joints, heart and circulation, digestion, reproductive system, and skin. Thousands of people are affected by Lyme disease throughout the world. Often it can be misdiagnosed as other illnesses, therefore the Centres for Disease Control (CDC) say the number of sufferers may be 5 to 10 times more than the estimated number. It is commonly called the great mimicker.

Benefits of HBOT :

The late Dr. William Fife of Texas A&M University pioneered ground breaking research into using Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) to treat Lyme disease. Dr. Fife saw dramatic improvements in the total health of Lyme patients. In most cases, patients were able to stop using antibiotics and other medications. HBOT promotes healing by increasing the oxygen concentration in the body to 15-20 times greater than normal at the cellular level. Many body functions are restored and the immune system receives a massive boost. Benefits of HBOT for Lyme disease include; increased energy, relief from pain, restored cognitive function, allows organs and glands to normalize and forces out toxins and other impurities.
