The Antiaging Effects of Hyperbaric Oxygen

Antiaging Effects The process of aging is caused by cellular damage, exposure to environmental toxins, sun damage, alcohol and drug use, chemicals,  lack of sleep, disease, and dietary habits. HBOT can help reverse degenerative aging by increasing oxygen consumption throughout the body and brain.

A new study suggests hyperbaric oxygen treatments (HBOT) can reverse and halt the aging process through telomeres and their effect on blood cells. By lengthening telomeres, optimal aging and antiaging effects take place fairly quickly.

During the study, 35 healthy adults over the age of 64 underwent 60 hyperbaric oxygen sessions over a period of 3 months. Blood was taken before, during, and after HBOT. Immune cells were extracted, analyzed, and compared. The findings were that telomeres grew longer. Usually, in aging, telomeres shrink, but in this case, they grew significantly.

Senescent cells are prevalent in the skin and adipose tissue, and they are non-dividing. Conversion of a dividing cell into a non-dividing senescent cell can take multiple weeks. Along with the increase in telomeres, the study also showed a significant increase in senescent cell turnover. These two findings indicate reversal in the aging process.

The Israeli research program that focuses on reversing aging published in a journal called, Aging.

Professor Efrati explained, “For many years our team has been engaged in hyperbaric research and therapy — treatments based on protocols of exposure to high-pressure oxygen at various concentrations inside a pressure chamber, Our achievements over the years included the improvement of brain functions damaged by age, stroke or brain injury.

“In the current study, we wished to examine the impact of HBOT on healthy and independent aging adults and to discover whether such treatments can slow down, stop or even reverse the normal aging process at the cellular level.

“Today, telomere shortening is considered the ‘Holy Grail’ of the biology of aging. Researchers around the world are trying to develop pharmacological and environmental interventions that enable telomere elongation. Our HBOT protocol was able to achieve this, proving that the aging process can, in fact, be reversed at the basic cellular-molecular level.

“Until now, interventions such as lifestyle modifications and intense exercise were shown to have some inhibiting effect on telomere shortening, But in our study, only three months of HBOT were able to elongate telomeres at rates far beyond any currently available interventions or lifestyle modifications. With this pioneering study, we have opened a door for further research on the cellular impact of HBOT and its potential for reversing the aging process.”

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a medical treatment that delivers 100% oxygen to a patient’s pulmonary system while they are within a pressurized chamber.

This saturation of oxygen allows high-levels of life-sustaining oxygen to be delivered to thetissues and organs. This increase of the partial pressure of oxygen at the cellular level accelerates the healing processes and assists in the recovery from numerous indications.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is therapy is an FDA approved and lifesaving remedy for multiple conditions such as carbon monoxide poisoning and decompression sickness (the bends), and it has many off-label uses.

Hyperbaric Centers of Florida is a premier off-label hyperbaric treatment facility located in the Tampa Bay area. Their state-of-the-art hyperbaric clinic provides therapy to outpatients on a 7-day per week basis.

Currently, There Are 15 FDA Approved HBOT Con­ditions
• Air or Gas Embolism
• Carbon Monoxide Poisoning
• Compromised Skin Grafts or Flaps
• Crush Injury, Compartment Syndrome
• Decompression Sickness (Bends)
• Diabetic & Other Non-healing Wounds
• Enhancement of Healing in Selected Problem Wounds
• Exceptional Anemia: Resulting of Bleeding
• Gas Gangrene
• lntracranial Abscess
• Osteomyelitis
• Radiation Injury
• Refractory Osteomyelitis
• Thermal Burns
• Idiopathic Sudden Sensorineural Hearing Loss

H BOT is used “off-label” for various disease states and disorders and HBOT may be ordered by a physi­cian for off-label indications. Hyperbaric Centers of Florida makes no claims as to the efficacy for any indications other than the fifteen approved by FDA.
