Hyperbaric therapy is being used as an effective therapy in the treatment in allergies and in individuals who suffer from asthma. The high levels of oxygen provided with each treatment reduces the inflammatory process for allergy and asthma sufferers, allowing the body to heal itself. In addition, sufferers of seasonal allergies can enjoy life during months with high pollen counts by controlling the inflammation of their nasal passages and airways with hyperbaric therapy. Exposure to mold and the mycotoxins produced by mold can cause severe symptoms. Mold sickness can cause system-wide dysfunction, especially in respiration and cognition. Hyperbaric therapy can help push these toxins out of the tissues and cells and help relieve the debilitating symptoms.
Hyperbaric oxygen is used to treat all conditions which benefit from increased tissue oxygen availability and infections where oxygen can be used for its antibiotic properties, either as the primary therapy, or in conjunction with other drugs.
