Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Kentville - Oxidative therapy is performed by introducing extra energy inside the body. This can be carried out in 3 ways: using Hyperbaric Oxygen and introducing oxygen in the body under pressure, through an infusion of Hydrogen Peroxide or H2O2 into a vein for approximately one hour or through combining blood with Ozone gas. It only takes a little amount of Hydrogen Peroxide to produce a large amount of oxygen, thus, areas on the body which suffer from poor circulation can benefit very much from the supply of oxygen.
Oxidative therapy has been made use of since the 1920's, when Dr. T.H. Oliver initially made use of Intravenous Hydrogen Peroxide during an epidemic of influenza. This successful treatment helped numerous patients and results were reported in a British medical journal, the lancet. A few years later, a paper was published by Dr. Charles Farr entitled "Therapeutic Use of Intravenous Hydrogen Peroxide." This paper has become the protocol for physicians who administer H2O2.
The theories surrounding this therapy vary in its explanation of how this treatment works. Some scientists and researchers have discovered that the presence of H2O2 within the body is much more complicated than initially thought. The benefits of Oxidative Therapy have been show helpful for the following health illnesses: Cerebrovascular Disease, Cardiovascular Disease, Coronary spasm, Cardiac arrhythmia, Asthma, Peripheral Vascular Disease, Pulmonary Diseases, COPD, Influenza, Raynaud's Phenomenon, Chronic Bronchitis, Bronchiectasis, Herpes Simplex Virus, HIV, Immune Diseases, Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer's, Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Environmental Poisonings, Migraines, and Parkinson's Disease, among others.
The energy producing chemical reaction of oxidation is essential in the body as the body makes use of different kinds of oxygen. To prevent damage to surrounding normal tissue, treatments should be controlled carefully. Anti-oxidants that come in the type of vitamins and enzymes would help to protect the body from whatever damage caused by oxidation. Nonetheless, the immune system uses oxidative energy as a weapon to be able to directly kill infectious agents like bacteria, yeast, parasites and viruses.
