Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a non-invasive medical treatment that involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized room or tube. Breathing 100% oxygen under pressure allows oxygen to dissolve into the blood plasma, resulting in increased oxygen delivery to the tissues. Hyperbaric oxygen acts as an anti-viral and anti-bacterial, as bacteria and viruses typically cannot tolerate oxygen. It helps fight bacteria and stimulates the release of substances called growth factors and stem cells, thereby promoting healing.

How Is It Done?
In a Hyperbaric oxygen therapy chamber, the air pressure is three times higher than normal air pressure. Under these conditions, your lungs can gather more oxygen than at normal air pressure. Your blood carries this oxygen throughout your body. Researchers are actively investigating the utility of HBOT in several other medical disorders. HBOT is of immense value as life and limb saving measure in several medical and surgical conditions. HBOT appears to be promising in Autism affected children, Paralytic Stroke rehabilitation, Traumatic brain injury, and the like. HBOT, in most cases, is an add-on to conventional treatment and is not an Alternative therapy.

Why Is It Done?
Your body's tissues need an adequate supply of oxygen to function. When tissue is injured, it requires even more oxygen to survive. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy increases the amount of oxygen your blood can carry. An increase in blood oxygen temporarily restores blood gases and tissue function to normalcy, thereby promoting healing and fighting infection.

Limb Bagging

Limb Bagging
Ozone heals wounds faster. It is non-toxic, safe, and effective even for antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Limb bagging is a technique that has been in use for years and is especially useful with impaired circulation in diabetic legs, thereby removing the threat of amputation.

The Ozone’s anti-microbial effects have been found to be quite effective for treating infections of the skin and nails in clinical research. Fungal infections of the nails have responded better to ozone treatment than standard medical treatment. Skin ulcers show a significant improvement with this therapy.

Additional Applications: Limb Bagging helps in treating many infections like diabetic ulcers, fungal nail infections, athlete’s foot, Tinea versicolor, bacterial infections, and other wounds.

Severe leg infections and the onset of Gangrene affects the limbs crumbling patients many times. In the Limb Bagging technique, the affected area, covered with an air-tight bag, is then filled with ozone. This circulation of ozone kills bacteria and viruses thereby reducing the inflammation of the affected area. The treatment is usually undertaken one to five times per week, once or two times daily depending on the intensity of the problem. There is no pain or pressure in this therapy. It is a very simple procedure and even children are able to take it. The procedure usually takes 20-30 minutes as recommended by the doctor.
