Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy—A New Hope for Alzheimer’s Patients

Updated: Feb 28

An extensive research study has taken place looking at the impact of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy on a man suffering from Dementia over a seven-year period with some incredibly positive results. 

The work was carried out by a team based at Leicester University, in what was referred to as a multi-place chamber, like the one used here at The Brightwell (please see photo above.) 

The person involved had two sessions a week at 2 ATA. 

The report looked extensively at all aspects of HBOT and recognises that it is useful in 27 conditions including many of the conditions we see including Fibromyalgia, Long Covid, Brain fog and sports injuries. 

The report acknowledges that HBOT is not a recognised treatment for Dementia at present, but the more positive reports we have like this supported by academic facts will only serve to increase the awareness of HBOT in the medical sector. 

The report is quite a detailed, academic document, you can download it by clicking the link below. For those of you who enjoy finding out more about other related reading, used in this study, there are some useful links in the acknowledgements section at the end of the report.

This is an extremely interesting development.

The research paper can be quite hard going in part (plenty of long-worded medical terminology!), but is worth the effort to read. It concludes that more research is needed, but the case study is compelling.

A man whose dementia hasn't become worse after 7yrs of oxygen therapy (other than a blip during Covid, when oxygen therapy wasn't available at the Leicester centre).

We need to tell the world about this!

I've already recommended trying oxygen therapy to a friend's mother who has had a recent diagnosis of vascular dementia....
