Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (mHBOT), a practice well-founded in history and science, has garnered attention for its efficacy in treating conditions like decompression sickness, diabetic wounds, and carbon monoxide poisoning. Moreover, it’s been tested experimentally in complex conditions, ranging from traumatic brain injuries and strokes to Autism, Multiple Sclerosis, and Lyme disease. Chuck Re’s story stands as a testament to the promise of mHBOT as an avenue for healing and renewal.

A glimpse into Chuck’s recovery

Lyme disease, notorious for its varied and elusive symptoms, often begins with flu-like indications such as fever, rash, fatigue, and muscle aches. Over time, it can escalate to affect organs, joints, the heart, and the nervous system, masquerading as various other ailments.

Chuck Re, an Lyme disease patient, recently shared his remarkable progress after undergoing just a fortnight of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) sessions.

In his earlier years, Chuck led an active life immersed in sports. However, as he transitioned into his late forties, he found himself grappling with persistent and excruciating pain on a daily basis. Before embarking on his recent journey with hyperbaric chamber treatments, Chuck’s pain levels, measured on a scale of 1 to 10, consistently hovered above 8. His battle with Lyme disease further compounded his challenges, causing breathlessness, irritable moods, and chronic fatigue. The pervasive inflammation throughout his body, coupled with substantial joint discomfort, particularly in his lower back due to both sports-related injuries and a genetic predisposition, further added to his suffering.

In a mere span of two weeks, during which he diligently underwent two-hour daily hyperbaric chamber sessions, Chuck experienced a transformative shift. His symptoms, which had been exerting their grip at around levels 8 to 10 on the pain scale, receded dramatically to a range of 0 to 1. Moreover, his vitality surged, and his emotional well-being regained equilibrium.

After trying multiple treatment options with no reduction of symptoms, I was skeptical about actually getting any relief from the hyperbaric chamber treatments. I am happy to report that my initial doubts were unfounded because the hyperbaric treatments have left me feeling the best I have felt in years! There is no scale for what this means for my increased quality of life; it’s immeasurable!

How mHBOT Works for Lyme Disease

The mechanism behind mHBOT’s effectiveness in treating Lyme disease revolves around exposing the body to pure oxygen under pressure. By doing so, the Lyme disease bacteria are targeted, aiding in their destruction. Additionally, the therapy bolsters blood flow and oxygenation in infected tissues, inhibiting the growth of anaerobic bacteria. Beyond the physical aspects, some practitioners suggest that mHBOT may aid in managing associated pain and depression, enhancing mental clarity, and reducing the dependency on long-term antibiotic usage.

Studies have shown that the use of mHBOT as a treatment for Lyme disease is promising. Documented benefits of HBOT for Lyme disease include increased energy, pain relief, restored cognitive function, allows organ and glands to normalize, and cell detoxification.


With the growing interest in holistic healing approaches, mHBOT is gaining traction as a viable alternative to traditional medication treatments. Chuck Re’s profound experience echoes the sentiments of numerous patients who have embraced mHBOT as a lifeline to a better quality of life.
