Lupus is a life-changing autoimmune disease where a persons immune system attacks their tissues, causing swelling, swelling (inflammation), pain, and damage. Symptoms of the illness include lethargy, joint pain, fever, a rash, and cognitive dysfunction. According to the Lupus Foundation of America, 1.5 million Americans, and at least five million people worldwide have a form of lupus, with at least 16 thousand new cases a year occurring.
The four types of lupus are systemic lupus (accounts for 70 percent of all cases), drug-induced lupus (this accounts for 10 percent of lupus patients), neonatal lupus (a rare condition affecting babies at birth) and cutaneous lupus (accounts for ten percent of lupus cases, affecting the skin).
How can Hyperbaric Oxygen help people who have lupus? First, let it be noted that currently there is no cure for lupus; however, HBOT diminish the symptoms of lupus helping to improve the quality of life for those diagnosed with the disease. HBOT enables the body to receive more oxygen than it usually would, stimulating the body to heal. The increased oxygen will then travel into the hypoxic areas of the body working to reduce inflammation, grow new blood vessels, boost the immune system and eliminates bacteria and toxins within the organization, promoting the healing process for severe or antibiotic-resistant infections.
Research has proven that crippling conditions such as ms, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury, and stroke, improve in extraordinary ways when treated with HBOT.
If you or someone you love is experiencing the symptoms listed above, and think you could have lupus, please contact a medical professional immediately.
