Welcome to New Leaf Hyperbarics

Where Each Day Holds the Possibility of a Miracle!

HEAL,

Mild hyperbaric therapy has been shown to greatly reduce healing time and improve numerous medical conditions.   Check out our list of conditions (below) for further information. Please note, this is a partial list… there is no telling how many conditions can benefit from improved oxygenation and circulation!

BUILD…

Through increased oxygen and improved blood flow, the body is able to build new blood vessels, rebuild cells, and repair damaged tissues.  When provided with the tools our bodies need, we can better achieve the health goals that we set for ourselves. Come in for a “dive” and build a healthier you!

THRIVE!

Many patients experience a more youthful appearance with repeated treatments, as well as increased stamina, and a sense of well-being.  Athletes have noticed improved performance and students have experienced better focus and recall.

How hyperbaric therapy can correct Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

This remarkable story inspired us at New Leaf to join the hyperbaric community. Dr. Harch’s pioneering work with traumatic brain injury (TBI) shows how much can be accomplished through this non-invasive method.

Please take a moment to watch this video.

The SPECT scans below show the difference in brain activity before and after a series of hyperbaric treatments.

ADD/ADHD

Many of our patients who struggle with ADD and ADHD have found great results from using mild hyperbaric therapy. After just a few treatments, children and adults alike feel more able to focus, more able to communicate clearly and more at peace overall. College students have come in for treatments prior to a big exam, sometimes even to study inside the chamber!

Alzheimer’s & Dementia

Inflammation is a hallmark of Alzheimer’s and Dementia (AD) and plays an important role in the damage caused by this disease. For three decades, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs: aspirin, acetaminophen, ibuprofen) have been known to reduce the severity of AD. Research studies of brain trauma have found that inflammation can be further reduced and controlled by use of HBOT. The hyperbaric oxygen effect on inflammation could help reduce and reverse the damage seen in AD.

“You know, people get frustrated because their loved ones who have Alzheimer’s, oh, he doesn’t recognize me anymore, how can I recognize this person, if they don’t recognize me? They’re not the same person.” “Well, they are the same person, but they’ve got a brain disease. And it’s not their fault they’ve got this disease.”

Anti-Aging

Hyperbaric oxygen treatments stimulates angiogenesis, growing new blood vessels into tissue and in 2007 has been demonstrated to cause stem cell release from our bone marrow into our circulation. HBOT has been shown to have detoxification effects and suppresses inflammation.  Most of our chronic diseases are now recognized to result from chronic inflammation.  When you begin to add up all of these beneficial effects of hyperbaric oxygen and combine them with the many other documented effects of HBOT on disease processes that are catalogued in the book “The Oxygen Revolution,” it is apparent that hyperbaric oxygen may in fact have anti-aging effects.

Arthritis

Hyperbaric therapy has been shown to reduce the pain and inflammation associated with arthritis and other chronic pain disorders. Some physicians may prescribe hyperbaric therapy off-label as an adjunct or alternative to drug treatments and other common arthritis therapies.

Athletics

Whether you are a professional athlete or just somebody who enjoys challenging your body, if you participate in sports or other taxing physical activities, mild hyperbaric therapy can give you the edge you need to perform at your personal best every time.

Mild hyperbaric therapy speeds recovery from sports injuries, gives the athlete faster recovery from workout, increases energy and mental clarity on and off the field. By providing more oxygen at the cellular level, healing is rapid, energy levels are high and the athlete is able to focus and perform at peak levels.
Many athletes report much less lactic acid buildup with hyperbaric therapy, greater endurance and less muscle fatigue. The pressurized environment of the chamber allows many to recover much more quickly from sports injuries due to swelling, dehydration and ischemia.
This pressure decreases swelling at the same time increasing blood flow to restricted areas. Higher concentration of oxygen in the blood at the cellular level allows healing and reparation to occur at a much faster rate.
Check out our list of professional athletes that incorporate hyperbaric therapy into their fitness regimen!

Autisim

Studies have shown that children with Autism may have decreased blood flow through the brain, and more specifically, the sides of the brain.  This can be shown on a SPECT scan (a very special CT scan).  Less blood flow through the brain can be equated with decreased oxygen flowing through the brain as well, since one of the major roles of blood flow is to deliver oxygen to tissues.  By increasing the amount of oxygen carried by the blood stream (more specifically, the plasma), the greater opportunity for oxygen deprived tissue to receive more oxygen.

Burns

Serious burns caused by chemicals or electricity, as well as by fire, can be among the most painful of injuries, and among the most difficult to treat. Long-term physical and emotional disabilities can occur in burn victims as a result of tissue scarring. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy can help burn patients heal faster with fewer complications and less scarring.

Cancer

“I utilize mild Hyperbaric Therapy (mHBT) in all stages of cancer; upon detection, as well as pre and post surgery, pre, post and during chemo and radiation. In fact if chemotherapy is used in conjunction with mHBT, the chemotherapy dose must be reduced. The mHBT will potentate any primary cancer treatment. mHBT is the best cancer prevention and cancer remission therapy out there, bar none.” Bergeron, Rhett, MD

“A concern expressed by some physicians is that HBOT will stimulate the growth of cancer. Experimental animal data by Matko Marusic, Ph. D. showed that HBOT given after inoculation of cancer cells decreased the take of the cancer cells. Again, the thousands of patients treated with the Marx protocol have demonstrated a lower recurrence of cancer in patients who received HBOT as part of their reconstructive process than those who had only antibiotics and surgery. The anti cancer activity of HBOT in an experimental breast cancer and clioma model reported by RAA et al, confirms the anti cancer activity of HBOT.” William S. Maxfield, M.D. FACNM

Cerebral & Bell’s Palsy

It has been theorized that the neurological damage that leads to cerebral palsy does not result in complete cell death in the injured area. Some cells, it is postulated, receive enough oxygen to stay alive, but not enough to function. Oxygen therapy exponentially increases the amount of available free oxygen in the blood. Increased oxygen to the brain may “jump start” oxygen-starved cells and help to return motor control to the patient.

Furthermore, hyperbaric therapy has been proven effective in the treatment of Bell’s palsy, and when used in conjunction with other treatments, helps to prevent permanent facial disfigurement.

Chronic Fatigue

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy at 1.3 atmospheres produces an increased elasticity in the erythrocytes (RBC’s) while also seeming to reduce the pressure variant between their contents and the surrounding medium (SPECT scan data).  Also, the dissolved oxygen in the plasma may oxidize any substance responsible for the decrease in RBC cell wall permeability.   The immediate effect of HBOT is to relieve the cellular hypoxia that is a feature of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.

Coma

Coma is a state of unconsciousness from which a victim cannot be roused. It should not be confused with fainting, a fairly common, transient form of unconsciousness from which a person can be awakened. A coma often occurs just before death from cancer or other terminal disease. It may also be the result of a head injury, an infection or other medical problem, an overdose of sedative or hypnotic drugs, or carbon monoxide poisoning.

Hyperbaric Therapy can be beneficial in the healing process from damage occurring from the insult/trauma, and has even been accredited with “waking up” some patients who are in a comatose state.

Diabetic Ulcers

Foot ulcers are a significant source of morbidity, mortality, and diminished quality of life for patients with diabetes. Ulcer development is often due to a combination of diabetic neuropathy and peripheral vascular disease, which decreases the supply of oxygen to the affected extremity. Hypoxia can cause otherwise trivial lesions to progress rapidly to infection, gangrene, and limb amputation. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy increases the amount of oxygen dissolved in the plasma, allowing tissues to achieve levels of oxygenation that would otherwise be impossible.

Fibromyalgia

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a relatively new treatment for fibromyalgia. However, initial studies seem to illustrate that hyperbaric oxygen therapy has a positive effect on the symptoms of fibromyalgia, including muscle pain and tender points.

Heart Disease

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) infuses the body with oxygen, increasing levels by up to 1000% in body tissues, depending upon the chamber settings. The increased oxygen levels in blood and plasma oxygenate tissues that have been starved of oxygen, inducing such healing processes as the proliferation of fibroblasts and increased angiogenesis. Fibroblasts are progenitor cells that promote connective tissue growth, and angiogenesis is the formation of new blood vessels. This method of improving oxygenation and healing processes supports a reduction in the damage suffered in heart disease and possible healing of damaged tissues.

Lyme Disease

Hyperbaric therapy shows promise in helping Lyme patients because Lyme bacteria are microaerophilic organisms, requiring very little free oxygen, and are debilitated in high oxygen environments. Hyperbaric therapy increases the amount of oxygen in the body, which in turn causes several physiological changes that can result in accelerated healing, reduction of inflammation (particularly of neuroinflammation), and angiogenesis.

Angiogenesis is defined as the development of blood vessels in the body. This may become important in the treatment of Lyme disease as it is believed that Lyme bacteria effectively evade antibiotics by moving away from normal blood flow into tissue, organs, and bone. Thus, the further the antibiotic can move into these areas through a more dense and extensive system of blood vessels, the greater the opportunity to exterminate the Bb organism. Elevated oxygen levels in tissues and blood plasma also inhibit bacterial function.

Migraines

There’s little question hyperbaric therapy may provide quick relief from severe headache pain, or even stop a migraine in its tracks. The problem is getting into a chamber fast enough to get ahead of the attack. Still, for patients who experience warning signs hours beforehand, hyperbaric oxygen might offer a reasonable and non-pharmaceutical alternative.
As time passes, and hyperbaric clinics become more accessible, many people who suffer from migraine headaches will have an alternative option that avoids the myriad of possible side-effects of pharmaceuticals.

Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

Multiple sclerosis is an enigmatic disease that is thought to have immunologic origins with resultant breakdown of the blood brain barrier. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy effects on MS have been published in a variety of studies. While the data is confusing and conflicting, the fact remains that the most rigorous study on this subject matter showed an unequivocal beneficial effect of hyperbaric therapy.

Pre & Post Surgery

Reconstruction Surgery and Plastic Surgery in a healthy person may heal up to 75% faster using HBOT before and after surgery. Less pain, less scarring, and less recovery time for the patient, as well as less infections have been reported.  Patients can return to work faster, with less bruising and/or swelling.

A Study done at the Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery in Castle Hill Hospital in the UK has just been released and the results are extremely encouraging. The researchers noticed that when HBOT was applied before coronary artery bypass graft surgery (CABG), the surgery went much better. With the addition of HBOT, the heart muscle had greater strength and was able to pump stronger following the surgery. More importantly, the post-op complications were greatly reduced allowing for a much shorter hospital stay. This can be of particular interest due to the high costs associated with extended hospital stay, particularly in the intensive care.

Radiation Damage

More than 11 million people living in the U.S. today have been diagnosed with cancer, and about half of them have received radiation therapy (radiotherapy). While improved radiotherapy techniques have increased treatment precision and reduced side effects caused by radiotherapy, the high doses of radiation used to kill cancer cells may still cause long-term damage to nearby healthy cells in some patients. By helping the blood carry more oxygen to affected areas, hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has been proven effective for these patients.
Long-term side effects

For most cancer patients who experience negative effects from radiotherapy, the side effects are short-term and appear within six months of their last exposure to radiation. Depending on the patient’s sensitivity to radiotherapy, the type and dose of treatment and location of the cancer, patients may experience scarring and narrowing of the blood vessels (intimal proliferation in the arterioles) within the treatment area. This can lead to inadequate blood supply and result in chronic, long-term side effects including death or damage to soft tissues or bones (necrosis, radionecrosis or osteoradionecrosis), poor wound healing and related problems such as life-threatening infections. As many as 10 to 15 percent of patients receiving high doses of radiotherapy will experience these late side effects from radiotherapy, which may be delayed for several months or years after treatment has ended.

Stroke

When cells in the brain die, either from trauma or lack of oxygen, blood plasma leaks out into surrounding brain tissue causing swelling and reducing blood flow.  These otherwise normal cells go dormant because they can’t function without the appropriate amount of oxygen.  Hyperbaric therapy dramatically increases the oxygen carried in the blood plasma, making oxygen available to heal damaged capillary walls, preventing plasma leakage and reducing swelling.  As the swelling decreases, blood flow can be restored to the dormant tissue (neovascularization) and these cells then have the potential to function again.

TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury)

In TBI patients, some of the injured brain tissues may be “dormant” and non-functioning. Hyperbarics can stimulate these “dormant” tissues and return them to more normal function. In young children, especially, cognitive function and spasticity can be greatly improved.

Wound Healing

Oxygen is one of the most versatile and powerful agents available to the modern medical practitioner. The therapeutic use of oxygen under pressure is known as hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBO2) and has been used to assist wound healing for almost 40 years. Hyperbaric therapy has several specific biological actions which can enhance wound healing processes.
