If you or a loved one suffers from the movement disability known as Parkinson’s Disease, then you likely recognize how saddening the symptoms of Parkinson’s can be. Between the impairment of speech and motor skills to the body tremors or muscle rigidity, a Parkinson’s treatment is a top priority for many sufferers who want to go back to living their life with a healthy body and mind.
Hyperbaric Plus Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a proprietary treatment at LyfeWell which combines two well known technologies: pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF) and hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). These treatments work together to increase blood flow and oxygen supply to the body, two things that we all need for our bodies to both survive and to thrive.
Parkinson’s symptoms are often caused by inflammation in various parts of the body, resulting in the disruptive function of the nervous system. One of the biggest positive effects we’ve observed with E-HBOT is its ability to reduce inflammation anywhere in the body by increasing the amount of oxygen that is delivered to the damaged area(s). The relief of Parkinson’s symptoms was first found by accident when a patient tried PEMF and HBOT for a different reason and noticed the incredible progress made in their Parkinson’s treatment concurrently.
Neurological disorders are diseases of the central and peripheral nervous system. In other words, the brain, spinal cord, cranial nerves, peripheral nerves, nerve roots, autonomic nervous system, neuromuscular junction, and muscles. These disorders include epilepsy, Alzheimer disease and other dementias, cerebrovascular diseases including stroke, migraine and other headache disorders, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, neuroinfections, brain tumors, traumatic disorders of the nervous system due to head trauma, and neurological disorders as a result of malnutrition. Neurological symptoms may occur due to the infection itself, or due to an immune response.
Lyfewell’s 90-minute session begins with PEMF for 20 minutes. During this time, the body receives a series of small electrical pulses that awakens the cells and helps improve circulation throughout the body. This prepares the body for HBOT, which takes up the remainder of the 90-minute session. Now that the blood is properly moving through the body, the HBOT releases three times as much oxygen into the chamber than a person is typically exposed to in a typical day. Moreover, this is pure oxygen that helps the cells strengthen, repair, and replace themselves as necessary.
