    Getting bent is dangerous and I dont know if I could do that because of my heart condition. I dont think I would choose to be bent so I would go for the more treatments and if it worked I would spend the money. Let us know what Duke says Manda. I am ready to dive into hubbie's oxygen..lol. Manda, you get your boyfriends oxygen tank and I will get my husbands, come on over and we can get high on oxygen Jenn

    Default HBOT

    Ihave read that this is very expensive. It is also used in the autism community and many families have a chamber in their home or take their kid to the place for it. Also many families share the cost of a chamber and use it for their families.

    When doing a google search on HBOT use autism and you might find more data and also the type of Dr who has this at their office.

    Default HBOT data

    Someone posted this link about HBOT in an autism group for a member who is considering it. There is a lot of scientific info here, so passing it along:

    Wink Hbot Data

    Just to answer some question on here:

    Any doctor can prescribe hyperbaric oxgyen treatments. You need to have a prescription from a medical physician, just as you would for any prescrition drug. The reason being is the FDA has 100% oxygen as a drug and therefore you need a prescription for it.

    Treatments vary in price. A free standing clinic (not affiliated with a hospital) can be priced from $150 to $250, depending on the protocol (ie. 6o minute treatment or 90 minutes). For patient using hyperbarics in a hospital setting (Duke, UCLA, burn centers) they can charge anywhere from $1200 or $2000 per treament. The hospital chambers allow medical personal to be inside with to monitor the patient, where most free standing clinics will monitor on the outside.

    I work at a free standing hyperbaric facility in Santa Monica. Here we treat patients with strokes, autism, fybro myalgia, post operative wound healing, some minor burns, lymes disease, general health issues, immune system building and many others. The hospitals treat divers, and critical patients with burns, exceptional blood loss, diabetic non healing woulds, skin grafts, carbon monoxide poisoning, and more.

    This is an old thread, but seeing my question relates to oxygen therapy I thought I would post here.

    Some time in the recent past, someone posted about possibly trying the oxygen therapy offered by cosmetic clinics. They were considering it in conjunction with IPL. I can't remember who it was. I am hoping they will see this post and update us as to whether they went ahead with the treatment or not?

    My red light therapy doctor keeps suggesting it to me, claiming her other patients benefit, but I am not convinced as she also admits she has never had a patient like me.

    I can't see it having an effect even remotely close to that of a Hyperbaric chamber, but still remain curious about treatments people have tried.
    Previous Numerous IPL.
    Supplements: Niacinamide, Vit K2, low D3, Moderate Dose Vit C, Iodine, Taurine, Magnesium. Very low dose B's. Low dose zinc (to correct deficiency).
    Skin Care: No Cleanser, ZZ cream mixed with Niacinamide gel 4% and LMW HA.

    Treating for gut dysbiosis under specialist care. (This is helping).
    Previous GAPS diet. Testing tolerance of resistant starch.
    Fermented Foods. 2 to 3 days per week, Intermittent fasting -16-18 hours.

    Funny you should bring this up....I have been hearing a local place in my area talking about hyperbaric chamber treatments.....how it helps chronic illness and inflammation and so on....I have been so tempted to call them and try it just one time and see but I am a chickenbutt lately....afraid to make matters worse....I guess if I felt like I was starting to flush while in there I could insist they let me out ASAP! Can't imagine the cost and whether I could get it covered at all by insurance for rosacea is unlikely.

    I hope someone has tried this and comes forward with their experience.
