Multiple Sclerosis

High Dose Oxygen Therapy (HDOT) is not a cure for Multiple Sclerosis. The usefulness of high dose oxygen therapy is to stabilize the patient's condition and improve their quality of life. Many people suffering from MS report improvements in their overall symptoms and their functional abilities after high dose oxygen therapy. Patients have reported improvements in their ataxia, numbness in their fingers and hands, balance, visual fields, concentration, pain, bladder-bowel disorders, weakness and dizziness. HDOT produces vasoconstriction, which causes the dilated leaky blood vessels in MS to constrict back towards a more normal size. HDOT also reduces the internal swelling, due to fluid gathering, which can lead to nerve cells dying.

Cerebral Palsy
The appropriate time to use oxygen is at the start of a disease process, not after a delay of months or years. Nevertheless, a course of oxygen therapy sessions at increased pressure has been shown to resolve tissue swelling after the lapse of years. It works by constricting blood vessels and interrupting the vicious cycle where oxygen lack leads to tissue swelling, which then leads to further oxygen deficiency. Although formal studies have yet to be undertaken in children with cerebral palsy there is every reason to believe that exactly the same effect that is seen in stroke patients can occur. Also in children the brain is still developing and therefore the prospects for improvement are very much greater. Recovery of brain damage in children as a result of cardiac surgery has been documented using X-ray scanning.

Angina
High dose oxygen therapy (HDOT) will improve oxygen supply to the threatened heart and may reduce the volume of heart muscle that will perish. The addition of HDOT to the standard treatment may reduce death rate and other major adverse outcomes.

Migraine
Increased amounts of oxygen in the blood raise oxygen levels in the brain tissues, even when contracted blood vessels reduce blood flow. Many Migraine patients who receive HDOT find that the interval between attacks is significantly increased. Administered oxygen constricts the blood vessels while oxygenating the tissues, HDOT can reduce the swelling by as much as 50%. This aborts the symptoms.

Fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia patients receiving HDOT reported a decreased number of tender points and an increased pain threshold.

Stroke
HDOT strives to reduce swelling on the brain and encourage the growth of new brain cells, theoretically improving speech, memory, cognitive skills and other areas that have been damaged by stroke.

Crohn's Disease
HDOT limits the amount of inflammation in the bowels, and lowers levels of C-reactive protein and tumor necrosis factor alpha, markers of inflammation in the body. Pain has been alleviated, the patient's weight improved, and bowel movements returned almost to normal. Although the mechanism is not clearly understood, oxygen therapy warrants consideration in treatment of Crohn's disease not responding to conventional treatments.

Parkinson's Disease
HDOT helps the nervous system by replenishing vital oxygen in pure form to body tissues where Parkinson's disease has damaged nerve endings. Researchers have found that the nerve endings that cause tremors associated with Parkinson's disease responded incredibly well to HDO.

Ulcers
The main contributing factor in ulcer formation is ischaemia. Accordingly, HDOT aims to increase the oxygen available for healing.

My name is Joan McGoran and I have been attending The Oxygen Therapy Centre at Magheramourne for 5 years. I have brittle asthma and C.O.P.D. I have had this illness for most of my adult life. Before I started going to the Oxygen Therapy Centre, I was on a lot of medication and had suffered with side effects from my medication. I was on large quantities of steroids. Then there was antibiotics as well. I remember reading a leaflet about the Oxygen Therapy. I thought I would give it a try. I came out and had a trial in the tank and it was ok for me. I then had 20 sessions all together. That was the start of me going once a week. If I find my asthma is getting worse, then I would come twice a week.

Since I started using the Oxygen Therapy, I have been able to reduce my intake of steroids and antibiotics. I sometimes come in and can find my breathing quite difficult. After an oxygen session I can breathe without any problem. If I miss a session one week, I know the difference. My chest becomes tighter and breathing can be restricted.

Personally speaking, the Oxygen Therapy Centre for me has been a life saver. I have a better quality of life and my steroids have been greatly reduced from eight steroids a day for sometimes more than a week down to one a day and no antibiotics. I would say this for me is a success. I cannot begin to praise the Oxygen Therapy enough. I would encourage anyone to give it a try. There are a lot of other health issues that the Oxygen Therapy can help so I would say come try it.

* My name is Patricia and I am a 72 year old pensioner. I am an insulin dependant diabetic and I also suffer from rheumatoid arthritis. Unfortunately, I have lost four toes because of my diabetes and I have rheumatoid arthritis in most of my major joints. This has greatly affected my mobility.

I first started to attend the Oxygen Therapy Centre, Magheramorne in March 2008 after I had my toe amputated. Previously, when I had undergone this operation it had taken 10 months for my wound to heal. However, this time my wound was fully healed in 3 weeks after having an intensive course of oxygen therapy. I firmly believe that this treatment prevented any further complications and as a result I was able to visit my sister in Canada, 4 months after my operation.

Since then, I have continued to attend the Oxygen Therapy Centre once a week, I have found that it has helped to ease the pain of my rheumatoid arthritis and has greatly improved my circulation, possibly preventing further complications with my diabetes.

During the time I have attended the Oxygen Therapy Centre, I have found the staff to be extremely helpful and courteous and I would have no hesitate in recommending the Oxygen Therapy Centre and oxygen therapy treatment to anyone. It has truly helped me and has also helped to improve the quality of my life. Thank you again.
