Do you have chronic fatigue syndrome? And no matter how much rest you get, you still feel as though you haven’t slept in days? If so, hyperbaric oxygen treatments can help you feel refreshed and rejuvenated, bringing you the stamina you need to experience a lively and delightful lifestyle.
Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) is no joking matter and can diminish a person’s quality of life. Symptoms of the disorder include muscle weakness, difficulty sleeping, joint pain, headaches, and trouble concentrating. Because of these factors, a person with this condition is prone to depression because of the symptoms lifestyle restrictions, causing them to feel isolated from the world. What’s worse is, this disorder has no underlying condition, the cause being a mystery. Some medical professionals theorize that CFS is triggered by a combination of factors, such as a viral infection, a weak immune system or a hormonal imbalance. This condition could also be brought on by stress, which could eventually lead to panic and anxiety attacks down the line. CFS can affect people at any age, but commonly affects people in their 40s and 50s, with Women being diagnosed more frequently than men. According to the Institute of Medicine (IOM) and a report they published in 2015, an estimated 836,000 to 2.5 million Americans have chronic fatigue syndrome, and most people go undiagnosed.
How does HBOT help? Hyperbaric oxygen boosts the body ’s immune system and having a working healthy immune system is vital for recovery from chronic fatigue and other illnesses. Hyperbaric oxygen can effectively oxidize and remove harmful toxins, heavy metals, bacteria, and viruses, which are all said to be present with chronic fatigue. The bacteria associated with chronic fatigue thrive in low oxygen, causing headaches and inflammation that cause muscle and joint pain. By boosting the levels of oxygen within our bloodstream, the oxygen is then distributed to the blood plasma helping to lessen swelling and pain. This increased oxygen supply will then enhance the function of the white blood cells called leukocytes that promote the reproduction of new blood vessels. These white blood cells are significant team members in the body’s immune response. The increase in oxygen will stimulate the production of white blood cells, helping to fight infections by destroying the bacteria and ridding the body of debris. The growth of new blood vessels will help repair damaged tissue caused by the bacteria, by allowing the oxygen-rich blood to reach the damaged tissues and presenting the cells and tissues with the oxygen needed for restoration.
