How HBOT Can Improve Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
Abstract Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is a chronic disease with social components that ensue secondary to the incapacity of the person to fulfill work, social, and family responsibilities. Currently, there is no consensus regarding its treatment. The aim of this study was to determine the efficacy of hyperbaric oxygen therapy in CFS.
Design: Sixteen patients included in the study were diagnosed with Chronic fatigue syndrome. Patients received just 15 treatment sessions of HBOT therapy over a period of three consecutive weeks (five days per week). The outcome measures (visual analog fatigue scale (VAFS). Fatigue Severity Scale (FSS) and Fatigue Quality of Life Score (FQLS) were assessed before the treatment and after the completion of the 15 sessions.
Results: HBOT therapy was well tolerated, with no complications. After treatment, patients’ scores were found to have improved with respect to VAFS, FSS, and FQLS.
Hyperbaric therapy decreases the severity of symptoms and continues to Improve chronic fatigue syndrome in patients.
Personal testimony –
“I have my own personal struggle with chronic fatigue syndrome. I didn’t know diving into our mild hyperbarics would heal my chronic fatigue, or how bad I was actually suffering, but after 15 sessions it was gone permanently. I could finally do laundry and other chores without exhaustion and brain fog. My energy levels tripled and the results were permanent. It may have been from mold exposure, I’m not positive, but I do know I owe my improvements to my soft chamber”

How it works :
When you add in the air pressure of the chamber, it concentrates the delivery of oxygen to specific areas, such as a wound that needs healing. This high dose of oxygen stimulates the power of the mitochondria in the cells, which provide the cells with energy. It’s not surprising that boosting oxygen levels has these natural healing effects!
