On average, an individual consumes about six pounds of oxygen per day, far outweighing any other nutrient demands. Although oxygen performs many roles in the body, its primary role is in the production of energy. Yes, that is correct, only 50% of our energy comes from the fats and carbohydrates we consume. For our bodies to make this stored energy usable, our cells must convert this energy into molecules of ATP using OXYGEN.
By using the hyperbaric chamber, we can greatly increase the partial pressure of oxygen, which then dissolves the oxygen into the plasma and other waterborne fluids of the body. This is extremely significant because water and gases dissolved within it can cross the cell’s semi-permeable membrane via osmosis and diffusion. Since the body is approximately 70% water and every cell bathes in water, we use the chamber to deliver oxygen to every tissue in the body…Our bodies do the rest.
Hyperbaric treatments have therapeutic effects in the following fields – general health and well-being, beauty, and sport.
