At Humanergetics, we have been researching the benefits of hyperbaric oxygen (HBOT) since 2010. HBOT is a non-medical treatment that involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized chamber. The chamber is typically made of clear acrylic and is pressurized to two to three times the normal atmospheric pressure and this increased pressure allows the body to absorb more oxygen, catalysing healing and reduce recovery time.
The use of HBOT dates back to the 1600s when the first compressed air chambers were used to treat decompression sickness in underwater divers. The modern use of HBOT began in the 1930s when the first hyperbaric chamber was built. Since then, HBOT has been used to help a variety of conditions, including carbon monoxide poisoning, decompression sickness, and diabetic foot ulcers. The benefits of HBOT are thought to be due to the increased concentration of oxygen in the body, which may promote healing by increasing the delivery of oxygen to tissues and organs. HBOT has also been shown to have anti-inflammatory effects, reduce edema, and promote the growth of new blood vessels.
During HBOT, you would enter the hyperbaric chamber and breath pure oxygen either through a mask or canula, or without. The chamber is often pressurized, usually up to 1.5 to 2.5 atmospheres, which is equivalent to being 25 to 45 feet underwater. You would remain in the chamber for a set period, typically 60 to 90 minutes, while breathing pure oxygen under pressure. Once the session is over, the chamber is slowly depressurized and you can exit the chamber carefully.

The pictogram above summarises the benefits from Dr. Jockers. Traditionally the use of hyperbaric chambers has been restricted to large hospitals and at substantial cost. However with the relatively recent advent of portable chambers, hyperbaric oxygen is now both affordable and convenient and suitable for all ages from children to the elderly. Some studies published on HBOT includes (not limited to) below:
HBOT and the management of auto-immune diseases (ADS)
HBOT and the reduction of anti-inflammatory markers
HBOT and the general improvement of musculoskeletal dysfunction
HBOT does not increase tumor growth nor increase cancer recurrence
Overall, while more research is continually being published to fully understand the potential benefits of hyperbaric oxygen, these referenced links suggest that it may be an effective option for a range of conditions. As always, it is important to consult with a professional healthcare provider before using any type of therapy, particularly if you have any underlying health conditions. With its long history and documented benefits, we believe hyperbaric oxygen is a promising option for those looking to enhance their overall health and wellbeing.
