HbOT for Parkinson’s Disease – What is it?

HbOT is a therapy which is used to treat a range of illnesses, including decompression sickness, carbon monoxide poisoning, and chronic wounds that do not heal.

HbOT is a procedure in which people breathe pure oxygen in a pressurised chamber.

The therapy boosts the quantity of oxygen provided to the body’s tissues, which can:

  • Enhance healing
  • Decrease inflammation
  • Encourage the creation of new blood vessels in the brain
