Could Help The Almost 400,000 Brain Injured Service Members And Veterans Returning From Iraq.
Today, the prestigious peer-reviewed journal, Brain Research, published an article that verifies rats with an old traumatic brain injury can be healed with a protocol perfected by treating humans since 1978. Traumatic brain injury is a condition that denies oxygen to certain parts of the brain which causes inflammation, cell death, and loss of use. Intermittent treatments with pure oxygen, called Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) saturate these oxygen-deprived tissues with up to 10X the amount of oxygen we breathe. HBOT has now been shown to restore function and heal these old brain injuries. It is approved for other kinds of wound care.
