The year was 2006. I was going through particularly stressful and exhausting time that led me to feel completely fatigued, with lower than normal mood and very sluggish in the brain. This had been going on for a couple of months. My labs were all normal. I knew it was stress but I was having a hard time bouncing back.
Then I attended a medical conference where I started hearing about all the benefits of hyperbaric oxygen treatments. There were units on display and they were scheduling doctors to be able to have half hour sessions to experience them. The chambers looked like long, cylindrical, space-age capsules that were unzipped. As you step in, you lie down in a comfy, bed like environment. Then it is zipped up airtight and the pressure inside is dramatically increased. Other than popping ears, it was completely comfortable. I just relaxed and rested as atmospheric oxygen was driven into my system pleasantly and painlessly. Because I was interested in purchasing one, they allowed me to have three treatments that weekend. I immediately felt exhilarated and had an amazing sensation of well-being and sharpness. I could not believe how quickly it pulled me out of my slump. My brain felt sharper and my clarity returned. My fatigue greatly lifted. I felt alive and felt like the effects of all the stress had been washed away. I didn’t go on to purchase one at that time, because at my old location we had zero room to put it, but even months later I maintained that level of wellness I experienced after just three treatments!
Fast-forward to 2022. Colleagues Dr. Kam Tecaya and Dr. Jason Allen were attending an environmental conference and urged me to please try to get a hyperbaric oxygen capsule for our office. We now have the room and we decided to go for it!
Already, doctors and patients alike are expressing benefits from these treatments! We are so excited that we have brought this new treatment to our clinic and we cannot wait to share it with more and more patients as there are so many incredible benefits and really amazing amounts of research out there. And just in time, because cases of long COVID has left so many people so severely symptomatic and this is a great adjunct therapy for that!
If you are interested in learning more about our hyperbaric oxygen chamber and its benefits for your particular needs, please talk to your Nature Medica doctor about setting you up for treatments.
