HOPE FOR MANY “HOPELESS” DISEASES, FROM ONE OF THE FOREMOST RESEARCHERS IN THE FIELD

 

When Randy McCloy, Jr., the sole survivor of the Sago Mine disaster, finally walked out of the hospital to rejoin his family, it was in part due to the miracle of hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is based on an almost laughably simple idea: Oxygen can be used therapeutically for a wide range of conditions where tissues have been damaged by oxygen deprivation. Restore that oxygen, goes the logical thinking, and you can restore much of the lost function.

 

It seems too good to be true, but Dr. Paul G. Harch’s research and clinical practice has shown that this noninvasive and painless treatment can help the tens of millions of Americans who suffer from a brain injury or disease, such as:

 

· Stroke

· Autism and other learning disabilities

· Cerebral palsy and other birth injuries

· Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, and other degenerative neurological diseases

· Emergency situations requiring resuscitation, such as cardiac arrest, carbon monoxide poisoning, or near drowning

It can also improve conditions in which inflammation is the culprit, such as arthritis and asthma; promote healing in infections, burns, and skin grafts, such as diabetic foot wounds; and slow the aging process.

 

For the millions of Americans suffering from these seemingly “hopeless” diseases, here finally is the handbook of hope. Inspiring and informative, The Oxygen Revolution is the definitive guide to the miracle of hyperbaric oxygen therapy, from a pioneer in the field.

Book News Annotation:

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is standard for divers with the "bends." A hyperbaric, diving, and emergency medicine physician and a science writer explain how HBOT works, applications in conditions including traumatic brain injury and stroke, and barriers to its full acceptance by mainstream medicine. The book includes stories of people who have been helped by HBOT, advocacy for changing healthcare policy to expand coverage of HBOT, brain scan images, a glossary, resources, and references.
