Hyperbaric oxygen therapy and Chelation therapy are two of the
alternative medications that are gaining worldwide recognition for
the illness that they can treat. In order to be updated about these
two ground-breaking medications. Let us talk more about their
histories and where they came from. Are you okay with that? Good.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy which literally means "high pressure" like
a lot of modern inventions has been viewed as new and controversial
but the fact is, it is really not that new. The concept of a
hyperbaric treatment has already been in existence since as early as
1662. But it was first clinically used during the mid 1800s. It was
the U.S. Military after World War I who were the first to test and
develop hyperbaric chambers. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy was then
first used safely on sea divers to treat their decompression
sickness. Then in 1950, a lot of clinical trials were held that
uncovered the benefits of hyperbaric chambers and paved the way for
more contemporary applications in the clinical setting.
hyperbaric chamber is already U.S. FDA approved and proven to treat
a lot of illnesses such as autism, ADD/ADHD, diabetes, stroke, head
injuries, Alzheimer's disease and Crohn's disease. Now, hyperbaric
chambers can be personally administered at home or the office
without any medical supervision. Hyperbaric chambers are now
available for sale and for rent and come in two sizes, the single
and the double bag. The single bag can be operated solo and fits
only one person. The double bag, on the other hand, needs to be
operated by two people and fits two people.
Chelation therapy was first known when the father of modern
biochemistry, Alfred Werner develops the theory of coordination
compounds or chelates in 1893. This was a turning point in
reclassifying inorganic compounds and Alfred Werner received the
Nobel Prize in 1913. In the 1920s, Chelation therapy then became
very important as industrial production developed. Industrial
materials such as paints needed elimination of heavy metal
contamination in order for these to be sold in the world market. At
first, citric acid was initially used to eliminate heavy metals, but
the Germany developed its own chelating agent, this was EDTA.
Chelation therapy was then used during the first world war by the
British to treat soldiers that were exposed to arsenic based poison
gas, which was used indiscriminately during that war. Then it was
also used during the second world war on navy personnel who were
exposed to lead poisoning from the paint on navy vessels. EDTA was
the chelating agent used.
chelation therapy is U.S FDA approved and used to treat heavy metal
toxicity such as lead poisoning, hypercalcaemia, and ventricular
fibrillation. It has also been reported to treat heart disease,
autism, osteoarthritis, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia,
organic poisoning, diabetes, and macular degeneration.
little history lesson ends here. Bye for now!
