Are you a fan of Halle Berry, Johnny Cash or David Crosby? What about Jerry Garcia, Patti LaBelle or B.B. King? Maybe you are a fan of Motley Crue’s Tommy Lee or Poison’s Bret Michaels? Maybe you like boxing, are you a fan of Sugar Ray Robinson? What about Ernest Hemingway, Anne Rice, Mario Puzo or H.G. Wells?
Now if you happen to be a fan of any of the celebrities in this, you may have, at one point dream of having what they have. But, with this group, though, there is one thing you might not wish to ever have. No, it’s not the scandals. It’s not even the paparazzis. It’s diabetes.
Yes, all of these celebrities listed above have diabetes. And yes, diabetes strikes anyone, whether you are a Hollywood A-lister or not. If there’s one thing we got to know about diseases such as this, they spare no one.
Diabetes mellitus, or more commonly known as diabetes, is a syndrome of disordered metabolism that is usually due to a combination of hereditary and environmental causes resulting into abnormally high blood sugar levels.
There are, for sure, a myriad of alternative ways to prevent or cure diabetes. For one, there is the presciption meds that you have to take in a required regimen day in and day out. Then of course, there is that regular doctor’s visit for check-ups and such.
And then there is the hyperbaric oxygen chamber therapy (HBOT). You see, oxygen is essential to our bodies for the proper healing of bodily tissues whether it’s skin, muscle, or bone. In most cases, the natural act of breathing combined with a healthy network of veins and arteries provide enough oxygen for bod tissues to heal. But there are certain circumstances where hyperbaric oxygen treatment is used to increase oxygen flow within tissues to improve healing.
For diabetes, HBOT is used to promote the body’s increased absorption of oxygen into its cells, kick-starting the fast healing or regeneration of cells.
