The Best-Kept Secret in Medicine
In the United States, the FDA currently recognizes hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) for 14 conditions, including decompression sickness, embolism, crush injury, bone infection, burns, wound healing, severe anemia, and several others.
Now, in The Oxygen Cure , hyperbaric expert William S. Max eld, M.D., will convince you that HBOT is a vastly underused modality that deserves to take its place among frontline medical treatments. As a holistic treatment, HBOT targets the underlying disease or condition, not just the symptoms.
The Oxygen Cure reveals how hundreds of studies on HBOT conducted around the world prove it works at the cellular level to help or heal conditions such as:
Chemo-Related Side Effects
Emphysema & Asthma
Migraine & Vertigo
Multiple Sclerosis & Parkinson's Disease
Traumatic Brain Injury & PTSD
And Dozens More
Full of hope-inspiring case histories and expert findings, The Oxygen Cure shows how HBOT not only benefits the sick and injured (including our wounded veterans), but may also reduce our country’s staggeringly high medical costs.
HBOT often provides a safe alternative to drug therapy and dangerous invasive procedures.
