Do you ever feel like you need an extra boost to your mood? If so, you may want to consider trying HBOT. Some people believe that HBOT can help improve your mood and make you feel more positive. Although there is limited research on the topic, some people swear by the results of HBOT when it comes to mood enhancement. If you’re curious about how HBOT could help you, talk to your doctor. They may be able to refer you to a clinic that offers Hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
What is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and how does it Work?
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy or HBOT is a protocol that allows you to breathe concentrated oxygen in a pressurized hyperbaric oxygen chamber. This can be done by breathing highly concentrated oxygen inside a chamber that is pressurized to 2 ATM, or by wearing a mask that delivers pressurized oxygen to the user. Oxyhelp hyperbaric oxygen chambers allows its user to breathe up to 95% concentrated oxygen which is concentrated in USA-built oxygen concentrators outside the chamber to ensure your safety.
The high pressure in the chamber forces oxygen into the body tissues, even if there is damage to the lungs or other parts of the respiratory system. HBOT is sometimes used to treat people who have conditions that prevent them from getting enough oxygen to the tissues, such as:
- Chronic wounds that are not healing
- Crush injuries
- Decompression sickness
- Carbon monoxide poisoning
- Severe anemia
Benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Mood Disorders
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is an effective protocol for many medical conditions, including mood disorders. This increase in oxygen can help to reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety, and can also help improve cognitive function. HBOT can also help to reduce the side effects of medications used to treat mood disorders.
One study found that HBOT was as effective as antidepressants in treating major depressive disorder. The increased level of oxygen can help improve brain function and ease symptoms of mood disorders. If you are interested in trying HBOT for your mood disorder, talk to your doctor to see if it is right for you.
How to find a Therapist who Offers HBOT
If you’re interested in finding a therapist who offers HBOT, there are a few ways to go about it. You can start by searching online directories such as the American Academy of Pediatrics website or the International Hyperbaric Medical Association’s website. Both of these organizations offer lists of providers that offer HBOT therapy.
You can also ask your regular doctor or pediatrician for a referral to a provider who offers HBOT. And finally, you can contact a local hospital that offers this type of therapy and inquire about referral options.
When searching for a therapist, it’s important to make sure they are properly certified and have experience treating children. You can also check with your insurance company to see if they cover HBOT therapy.
What to Expect during your First few HBOT Sessions
As with any new therapy, it is normal to feel apprehensive before starting HBOT. However, most people find the experience to be quite comfortable and relaxing. Here’s what you can expect during your first few HBOT sessions:
- You will be asked to remove all jewelry and clothing (except for socks and underwear) and to put on a hospital gown.
- You will be asked to lie down on a comfortable bed inside the HBOT chamber.
- You will be connected to an oxygen mask, delivering 95% pure oxygen to you during the session.
- The chamber will then be sealed and pressurized with oxygen to the prescribed level.
- You will remain inside the chamber for the duration of the session, which typically lasts between 60 and 90 minutes.
- During the HBOT session, you can kill time by listening to music, watching TV, or sleeping.
- After the procedure has been completed, the Oxyhelp chambers are depressurized within 40 seconds and you can exit easily by sliding the doors thanks to our anti-friction doors.
Does HBOT have any Side Effects?
One of the most common side effects of HBOT is feeling dizzy or lightheaded. This is caused by the increased oxygen levels in your blood, which can cause your blood pressure to drop. If you feel dizzy or lightheaded during HBOT, be sure to drink plenty of fluids and lie down until the feeling passes. You may also want to ask your doctor about lowering the oxygen level in the chamber.
Things to Consider when Going for HBOT.
1. Realize that HBOT is not a “quick fix”
2. Understand that the benefits of HBOT accumulate over time
3. Have realistic expectations about what HBOT can do for you
4. Be patient and consistent with your HBOT sessions, it may take some time for results to appear.
5. Be prepared for setbacks
One of the most important things to consider is that HBOT is not a treatment option so it cannot be used instead as a medical procedure. HBOT is a process that helps promote quick and better healing after a medical procedure.
How Often should HBOT be for Mood Disorders?
There is no definitive answer to how often HBOT should be used for mood disorders. Some people may benefit from daily sessions, while others may only need them once or twice a week. Ultimately, it is up to the individual and their doctor to decide on the frequency of hyperbaric therapy. HBOT is generally considered to be safe, with few side effects. However, it is important to speak with a doctor before starting any new treatment, especially if you have any underlying medical conditions.
