A Step Towards Healing
Research has shown HBOT can have incredible results when it comes to helping reverse symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injuries.
Traumatic Brain Injuries
THE OPPORTUNITY TO BRING BACK PARTS OF LIFE THAT WERE LOST.
The side effects of a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) can be devastating and adversely affect your quality of life. Ground breaking studies world-wide have proven that even some of the worst TBI cases can be dramatically improved by Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT). Dr. Shai Efrati in Israel has spent years proving what we once thought was impossible - the body can rejuvenate.
Patients that were unable to regain their speech or their ability to walk, through other modalities, were able to regain those functions using Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.
If you or a loved one is suffering from the effects of a Traumatic Brain Injury, OxyHealth of Texas can help start your journey to hope - and hopefully a good life regained.
In this video below, Dr. Efrati explains his research. Please watch.

Brain scans before and after HBOT for motor skill loss after stroke - then REGAINED after HBOT.

How HBOT works.
Your body uses oxygen to make energy to heal. Ten times the Oxygen. Time times the healing. Simple SCIENCE.
The air we breathe contains about 20.9% oxygen, 78% nitrogen and small amounts of argon, carbon dioxide, neon, helium and hydrogen. The air we inhale contains oxygen molecules that travel from our lungs in red blood cells, through our bloodstream throughout the body.
Under normal conditions, cells absorb only 25% oxygen into their mitochondria – the power house of our cells (yes, the same ones you learned about in high school biology) – that convert oxygen and nutrients into ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate), the high-energy molecule that stores and provides our body energy to function. This process is called aerobic respiration, the principal reason we breathe oxygen.
Inside a Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber (HBOT), hyperoxia (excess oxygen) and hyperbaric pressure forces the oxygen into our lungs, bloodstream, and lymphatic system to increase cellular absorption. More Oxygen is supplied to mitochondria, thus enhancing energy production.
Under conditions of pressure (for example 1.5 Atmosphere Absolute or ATA), lungs can absorb more oxygen than breathing pure oxygen at normal air pressure. The circulatory system carries oxygen throughout the body to help fight bacteria, improve viral response, and help the body to increase the oxygen supply where it is needed, at the cellular level.
Under normal conditions, the oxygen level in our arteries can reach 100mm Hg (millimeters of mercury) and 39mm Hg in our veins. Inside a hyperbaric chamber at 1.5 ATA, the oxygen level in our arteries can reach 1036 mm Hg and 404mm Hg in our veins. This is a ten-fold increase over normal conditions.
HBOT restores tissue oxygenation and improves function.
