More About Lyfewell Hyperbaric Therapies
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is an alternative therapy for cancer because it can expedite the success of chemotherapy and radiotherapy as well as reduce the side effects felt by those traditional treatments. Hyperbaric works by increasing the amount of oxygen our bodies are exposed to, which helps expedite healing of damaged tissue. While HBOT has not been proven to act as a stand-alone treatment for cancer, it is a great additional therapy.
LyfeWell Hyperbaric Treatment takes place inside a hyperbaric chamber. Many patients nap during this treatment and let their bodies reap the benefits of three times as much oxygen exposure than it is typically exposed to. The increased oxygen gives cells the energy and nutrients they need to thrive.
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy is a stimulating experience. Cancer patients benefit from PEMF because the increased blood flow helps boost the natural strength of cells within the body. PEMF is a short therapy, about 20 minutes, during which the patient lies on a comfortable chaise lounge and receives bursts of electromagnetic therapy that awaken the body from the cellular level.
When cells are able to receive enough blood, they receive more nutrients. When a cell has the proper amount of nutrients, it is able to function in a healthy way. In opposition, a weak cell must constantly borrow energy from surrounding cells, thus pushing the problem throughout the body. This helps those who are sick or injured because it focuses on healing from the cellular foundation of the body instead of trying to mask it with other drugs or therapies that are more focused on a short-term solution.
LyfeWell combines PEMF and HBOT therapies synergistically in what we call E-HBOT, or enhanced-hyperbaric oxygen therapy. This means each patient starts with 20 minutes of PEMF to increase blood flow and then follows with 70 minutes of HBOT to give the body the oxygen and nutrients it needs to thrive and heal. This combination has the potential to alleviate pain caused by cancer or heal other injuries or ailments brought on by traditional therapies.
