Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy:
Alternative Treatment to Heal Diabetes and Non-Healing Wounds


As of this moment, there are 23.6 million children and adults who are suffering from diabetes or roughly 7.8% of the American population. In Canada, there is an estimated 25% Canadians with diabetes who develop foot complications and 1 in 15 end up having a limb amputation during their lifetime.
In B.C., someone is diagnosed with diabetes every 20 minutes, according to Donna Van Walleghem of the Canadian Diabetes Association.

So is diabetes a uncurable disease? No, Diabetes is curable and OXYGEN is the key for diabetes and wound healing. Oxygen is one of the most powerful and versatile agents available to the modern medical practitioner today. The therapeutic use of oxygen under pressure has been used to assist in the healing of wounds for almost 40 years. This therapeutic use of oxygen under pressure is called hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) and in the following paragraphs are its specific biological actions which can enhance diabetes and wound healing.

HBOT can be used successfully in hypoxic or ischemic wounds such as diabetic wounds,venous static ulcers, failing flaps and grafts, refractory osteomylitis and necrotising soft tissue infections. In wound healing, hypoxia delivers an insufficient supply of oxygen which prevents normal healing processes.
