Hyperbarics: A Natural Cancer Treatment?

Filed under: Health Tips

Tagged with: · · ·

Cancer is one of the leading causes of death worldwide, affecting both men and women of all ages. While researchers are working hard to find effective medical treatments, they are still coming up short in the development of drugs that combat the aggressive growth of cancer cells.

As a result, many cancer patients are turning to natural remedies, which can be used in combination with medical treatments. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is one option that is often considered.

Why Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

Why should hyperbarics be used along with radiation and chemotherapy? This combined treatment method can be used to optimize the results of conventional treatments, help with tumor regression, and decrease the side-effects of the medications.

Also, HBOT is beneficial to create an environment that reduces the risk of cancer development. Cancer cells thrive in low-oxygen environments. When the oxygen levels are increased with HBOT, then it has been found that tumors are weakened and the aggressiveness of the cancer cell reproduction slows.

Benefits of HBOT with Cancer Treatments

Here are some of the common benefits that patients receive when combining HBOT with conventional cancer treatments:

  • Increases oxygen levels in tumors, helping to boost the results of radiation and chemotherapy
  • Decreases drug resistance in the tumors
  • Improves results after surgery with faster healing and reduced risk of infection
  • Reduces tumor aggressiveness and weakens certain types of tumors
  • Amplifies the death of cancer cells
  • Shrinks the volume of tumors
  • Minimizes the side-effects of radiation and chemotherapy
  • Decreases systemic inflammation, which helps to improve overall health
  • Normalizes oxygen levels
  • Boosts detoxification on a cellular level
  • Supports processes for optimal DNA repair

Even though additional research studies need to be completed to understand the benefits of HBOT for cancer treatment, many people have experienced positive results. HBOT helps to boost overall health, making it a great companion to other treatments that are being used.
