Hey everyone! I just completed 40 Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy treatments. I went down to 2.0 ATA for 90 minutes, wearing a hood with 100% Oxygen pumping through it for 60 minutes. I went every day for the first 5 weeks. This treatment has improved my conditions so much!! I can’t recommend it enough to anyone with Lyme, chronic pain or illness.
Like many treatments, this works better when done in conjunction with many other treatments. I have been using herbals, antibiotics, lots of supplements to support my body and drinking 9.5 alkaline water daily, and I have been doing in-fared sauna every day as well. Over the past weeks, I have improved so much. I would say by at least 60%.
Before HBOT I had tremors daily, poor memory and speech, internal muscle twitches, problem walking, chronic headaches, extreme fatigue (I could hardly be up for more than 3 hours), stomach pain, body aches, and more. I would get seizures when my body became too exhausted. Daily functioning was hard, to say the least. I couldn’t take care of my three little girls or myself. My family came and lived with me while I did treatments every day. During treatments I was more tired and had many herx reactions, some pretty bad, however, I pushed through and by the end of my treatments, I felt a steady increase in my energy and a major drop in all of my symptoms.
I still have bad days, but can’t even believe I have good days, full days, I cleaned my car yesterday, took the girls to the park, went grocery shopping, all by myself. This treatment allowed for the full effectiveness of my medications/herbs and supplements, while also giving my tissues the needed oxygen to fully repair. I also noticed pain in my body during treatments, I believe this was the Lyme dying in the presence of the high oxygen environment since the bacteria are anaerobic (and thus die in the presence of oxygen).
I have Lyme, Ehrlichiosis, Rickettsiae, Rickettsii, rickettsia Typhi, Bartonella, and Mycoplasma Bacteria.
