Hello!

I’m limited to what my taxed GI system (in its entirety; from mouth to anus) can handle by way of oral antibiotics, antiparasitics, antifungals, antivirals, herbs, prescription grade probiotics, etc. (not to mention gentle mold and metals detox protocols).

I’ve done each of the aforementioned for years, as well as many months of IM Bicillin. I’ve employed acupuncture, and am currently undergoing IVIG treatment. Upon the suggestion of others, I am looking to start a ‘diving’ regimen (hyperbaric oxygen therapy) soon.

I have a basic working knowledge of that therapy, and recognize that there are thread(s) on this Forum about this type of treatment. That said, would someone please kindly let me know the difference between mild vs. traditional HBOT? Is this simply a distinction as to whether or not the dive chamber shell is either soft or hard (and so, less potent in atmospheric pressure/O2, etc.)?

Also, would anyone be willing to share any recent success stories of their usage of HBOT? It would be amazing if others felt like this was THE missing piece in their healing/recovery.

Many thanks in advance for your help!

Told you...

Like everything, people vary in their responses to HBOT. Mostly good response. One person I spoke to who had very severe neuropathy said they had to do 33 oxygen dives before they suddenly turned the corner and had NO pain.

If you do a directory search for Phoiph and send a private message, they could discuss this with you.

Robin-

I so appreciate your input. My neuropathy is very severe, so it is good to hear that Phoiph found relief...finally. I will be sure to reach out to him/her.

Again, thank you so much for your kind help.

Told you...

I have peripheral neuropathy also. I am treating it with pretty high powered pulsed electro magnetic frequency (PEMF) sessions. After 4 sessions I am starting to see some modest improvement. I am told that I will really see improvement between 10 and 12 treatments but it may take 20 to 30 for significant improvement and to sustain the gains.

Additionally I am told that I may need a monthly session to maintain the progress. The chiro said some need it some don't. I am using a unit from pulsecenters.com. No endorsement, that is just the system my chiro uses and has experience with. Due to demand and scheduling, he is getting a second unit this month.

I have heard, read, and discussed with two HBOT practitioners (I have no personal experience yet), that 30 to 40 HBOT dives is what they recommend for severe issues but depending how long a person has been sick it could take much more. I had several concussions when I was younger and they both said HBOT can really improve that condition.

All the Best,

MattH
