Did you know that Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy can help treat the symptoms of Crohn’s disease? According to Healthline.com, this disease may affect seven hundred and fifty thousand people in the United States. Chrons disease is an autoimmune disorder that inflames the gastrointestinal (GI) lining. In other words, it’s an immune reaction against the intestinal tract. With Crohn’s disease, it often affects the small intestine making it difficult to digest and absorb essential nutrients from food, leading to malnutrition. Symptoms include abdominal pain, vomiting, diarrhea, and other digestive troubles. Furthermore, this disease can lead to arthritis, and skin rashes. Currently, no cure for Crohn’s disease exist; therefore therapy focuses on treating the symptoms to prevent future flareups.
Here is how HBOT can help treat the symptoms of Chrons Disease. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy increases the amount of oxygen distributed in the body, which in turn reduces inflammation in the bowels, eases the pain, and eliminates bacteria that often leads to infection. Many studies have proven that HBOT allows the body to absorb more oxygen than typically possible, and the additional oxygen helps the body to heal.
If you suffer from chrons disease, it’s best to avoid trigger foods, which vary depending on the person. Below is a list of possible trigger foods.
- butter, mayonnaise
- carbonated drinks
- coffee, tea
- raw vegetables
- red meat
- spicy foods
