Children with ADD/ADHD and HBT
If you have a child who suffers from ADD or ADHD, mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy may provide benefits. Mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy significantly increases oxygen tissue saturation and the levels of oxygen available for uptake by the brain.
Environmental toxins have been linked to ADD and ADHD and are thought to exacerbate the symptoms of these conditions. Oxygen acts as a cleansing agent in the body, flushing out toxins and helping cells and tissues to heal from their harmful effects. In addition, increasing the availability of oxygen to the brain through mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy enhances cognitive functioning. Brain scans have shown significantly increased brain function in subjects who have undergone hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
Some parents of children who have undergone mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy have reported that their children are calmer, have fewer mood swings, have better bowel function, and sleep better, among other benefits. We have found that many children enjoy and look forward to their mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy treatments. If you are the parent of a special-needs child and are considering mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy, you will be reassured to know that our hyperbaric chambers are large and roomy enough to allow you to join your child during oxygen therapy. You can read to your child, play a game, or watch a video with your child on one of our portable DVD players during the treatment.
Acquired ADD/ADHD in Adults
So you thought ADD/ADHD was for children only. Looks like you have been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD and now you have to deal with it. But don’t worry and be happy about it because there is a lot of ways to manage adult ADD/ADHD. One way to manage it is through education.
By knowing more about adult ADD/ADHD, you will get to know more about the disorder. It is also important to get that education not from doctors and professionals but from people who are living with it. Through this, you will have first hand knowledge, more insight and makes you less lonely. Another way to manage it is to have therapy. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a nice choice.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a nice choice because the therapy only uses hyperbaric chamber and pure oxygen. It is also a nice choice because sessions inside the hyperbaric chamber only last for less than an hour. Hyperbaric chambers can also be personally owned through renting or buying one. Now if you have your own hyperbaric chamber, you now have the luxury of having the therapy right at home anytime you want. What could be easier than that, Right?
Then after having hyperbaric oxygen therapy, you will also need the support of family, friends, colleagues and other acquaintances. Your love one’s need to be educated about ADD/ADHD so that they can know how to deal with you. It is like war, you need alliances to help you defeat or deal with your problems. What better source to get alliances than from love ones, right?
Now, are you ready to deal with adult Add/ADHD? Hope so, good luck then!
