Mild Hyperbaric Oxygenation Therapy (MHOT/HOBT) is the use of 24% oxygen at greater than atmospheric pressure (1.3 ATA). Under hyperbaric circumstances, oxygen adheres to all of the gas laws of physics and Henry’s law, which states that if you increase the pressure of the gas, there will be a directly proportional dissolution of said gas into any solute. Thus, in the body, the increase in oxygen is noted in the red blood cells, the plasma, bone, lymph, urine, and the cerebral spinal fluid.
Mild Hyperbaric Oxygenation Therapy is a simple, yet potentially life-saving treatment. By giving the body an overabundance of oxygen that is under increased pressure, increased amounts of oxygen reach more remote locations within the body. This not only helps to stimulate brain neurons in people suffering from cerebral palsy and other brain injuries, but it also treats slow-to-heal wounds, which are often related to diabetes.
Research has shown that, when administered by a professional, hyperbaric oxygenation has many health benefits and can help with or at least stall numerous neurological diseases, including cerebral palsy, cerebral ischemia, chronic childhood encephalopathy, narcotizing enterocolitis, anoxic encephalopathies of neonates, intestinal ischemia, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue.
Increasing oxygen in the tissues of the body helps the detoxification process.
