Early on, the symptoms of Lyme disease include headaches, fevers, exhaustion and fatigue, and a skin rash
But if the patient goes for very long without treatment, Lyme disease can progress to affecting the joints, nervous system, and heart, as well as creating even more serious symptoms. Unfortunately, antibiotics can only go so far sometimes in curing patients of Lyme disease. Most of the time, the symptoms are covered up, but the patient may not be completely cured, and the disease may recur in an even worse form. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (hbot) is one of the only methods of treatment that has proven itself successful in really curing a patient of Lyme disease.
So how can hyperbaric therapy work for Lyme disease patients? Hyperbaric chambers concentrate oxygen at a higher pressure than normobaric (normal atmospheric) conditions. The patient breathes pure oxygen, so that plasma and red blood cells can carry more oxygen to the tissue, healing it and even restoring cells in the body. The body’s performance thrives on as much oxygen as possible, so it will use any available amounts of oxygen to heal itself and become healthier.
Lyme disease patients would be able to sleep more easily, be cured of the typical rash, and restore aching joints. Hyperbaric treatments can even be a preventative measure for further heart problems or nervous system disorders, before they even appear in the patient. Best of all, hbot can actually cure someone with Lyme disease, instead of simply taming the symptoms before they return.
