Hyperbaric Oxygen Success Story

I know I posted a question about Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) a while back and people replied with mixed reviews. I was at a Lyme support group last night and the speaker has a son with chronic lyme who responded remarkably to HBOT. I don't know all the details, but he has no more pain and feels normal again. I just thought I would share this with everyone.
I have read in the book I have about Rife machines that HBOT may drive the infection deeper. I am not sure what this means exactly. I have also read that it drives it into an inactive form. It's also costly. So, I have mixed feelings about it, but I am considering trying it. My doctor prescribes it for patients. I don't have much to lose at this point.
Anyone's thoughts would be appreciated.

I found some information on Hyperbaric Oxygen in the treatment of Lyme Disease. I thought I would share it in case anyone is interested. I got this information from a center in PA which treats Lyme with HBOT.

Hyperbaric oxygenation therapy for Lyme disease:

·  Enhances action of antibiotic therapy

·  Pushes oxygen deep into tissues

·  Promotes healing of affected areas

·  Alleviates symptoms caused by spirochetes

·  Kills and/or limits bacteria reproduction

·  Evokes a Herxheimer response*

·  Boosts natural immune response

Patients report:

·  Reduction in “brain fog,” increased memory

·  Decreased joint pain

·  Increased stamina

·  Cessation of burning/itching symptoms

·  Restful sleep

·  “Feeling better”

·  Overall reduction in symptoms
