    interesting find.
    If oxygen does indeed help, then i wonder if this might be one reason why people who still exercise (i stopped) report less redness afterwards.
    It also makes me think that regular breathing exercises and supplements such as Chlorella would help.

    started a topic Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)

    Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)

    Hi there,
    I was reading Prima magazine today and there was an article about raynauds and the use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy in treatments.

    It suggests that this therapy reduced spasms and inflammation in the blood vessels. therapy involves sitting in an oxygen chamber for an hour at a time. (often once a day for several weeks).

    Also found this on the ESFB channel

    Has anyone heard of anyone benefitting from "Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)" for rosacea? I searched the rosacea yahoo group and found a post:
    << My boyfriend's father (age 71) has rosacea and he refuses to go to a derm. In August of last year, he was diagnosed with severe internal bleeding - the radiation from prostate cancer had weakened the walls of his blood vessels. He was immediately treated in a hyperbaric chamber (he explains it as a pure oxygen submarine with 15 or so other people in it) 5 days per week for months. His rosacea has cleared up! (..and he no longer needs glasses for driving!!) Therefore, it would seem that oxygen treatments to the face could help the rest of us. >>

    and lastly

    “Oxygen is an essential ingredient of life, maintaining quality, helping the immune system while promoting the re-vasculation of ischemic tissue. Restriction of vital oxygen levels (hypoxia) accelerates degenerative conditions. Most hypoxic tissues require Hyperbaric pressure to achieve a significant increase in oxygen delivery.”
    (“The Life is in the Blood”)

    Sounds promising!!
