In this video we’ll cover how to improve neuroplasticity using hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT). We get a lot of questions about hyperbaric oxygen or other modalities that we utilize and how they affect brain function, brain healing, reducing brain inflammation, and stimulating brain regeneration.
Are these possible? Yes! So let’s talk about the process of neuroplasticity and how hyperbaric oxygen and other modalities improve the neuroplastic response, and the ability for the brain and central nervous system to reduce inflammation, heal, and regenerate. Certainly over the last handful of years, there’s a ton of research to support the fact that the central nervous system can heal, it can regenerate, we can produce central nervous system stem cells, which can now trigger new growth and new connections within that brain and central nervous system tissue and hyperbaric oxygen plays a critical role in that entire process. In this video we’ll also discuss a study that shows, without a doubt, that hyperbaric oxygen therapy induces neuroplasticity and also has the capacity to wake up dormant tissue and start healing and regenerating brain and central nervous system cells, even up to at least three years post-stroke.
