I see a direct correlation between the efficiency of the brain and the body as a whole with the level of income. Therefore, I am exploring interesting ways of pumping myself.
One method of pumping the brain is oxygenobarotherapy (OBT). In short, it is pumping oxygen into the body under increased pressure in special pressure chambers.
The principles on which this method is based are largely due to the laws of physics governing the dissolution of gases in body fluids and their distribution in tissues.
The human can survive without water and food for days to weeks, but it is enough to cut off the oxygen supply for one or two minutes and death ensues. This is why a lack of oxygen for tissues and organs is devastating.
The procedure itself looks like this:
- First doctors measure your blood pressure, your oxygen saturation level and measure how long you can go without breathing;
- Then you put on a mask where the oxygen comes from;
- You simply sit for about 40 minutes (you can read a book or phone at the same time);
- Through the porthole, the doctors monitor your condition every few minutes;
- Then they doing the same thing after the procedure.
There is another, more advanced way of OBT – placing the patient in a separate pressure chamber. It is more expensive, but more comfortable and effective.
Oxygen therapy can be used not only to pump the brain, but also to increase energy, normalize emotional state and even treat diseases. It should be noted that oxygenobarotherapy allows to eliminate oxygen starvation in any diseased organ, restore its function and resistance to pathogenic factors.
Oxygen in blood is chemically bound to hemoglobin (19.1% vol.) and dissolved in plasma (0.3% vol.). Under normal conditions oxygen delivery to tissues is performed by hemoglobin in erythrocytes, and the dissolved fraction only regulates this process.
When the delivery of oxygen to organs and tissues is disrupted, hypoxia (oxygen deprivation) develops. Vital organs (heart, brain, kidneys, liver) are extremely sensitive to oxygen deficiency and cannot function normally in case of oxygen deficiency.
Hypoxia can occur for a variety of reasons – it is a violation of the patency of blood vessels supplying the organ (atherosclerosis, inflammation, edema, etc.), a decrease in hemoglobin, and many other reasons related to respiratory pathology, cardiac activity, etc. For the treatment of these conditions various methods of oxygen therapy (oxygen therapy) have been developed. However, at normal atmospheric pressure even breathing pure oxygen is often not able to eliminate oxygen deficiency at the organ and tissue cell level. The only way to solve this problem is to increase the amount of oxygen carried by the blood. The latter is possible only in a hyperbaric chamber.
In addition, according to modern concepts, oxygen under increased pressure acts as a general adaptogen that increases the body’s resistance to various stress influences.
In addition, OBT has a number of effects beneficial for the patient: anti-edematous effect; anti-inflammatory effect; accelerates the wound process, promotes the growth of vascular capillaries and restores reduced blood flow in organs and tissues. OBT normalizes collagen synthesis, accelerates bone callus formation, eliminates osteoporosis phenomena, etc.
What diseases may be cured by oxygenobarotherapy?
The range of diseases for which the OBT method is indicated is quite wide. OBT is especially effective for the following pathologies:
- Vascular pathology: obliterating vascular disease of extremities, trophic ulcers due to circulatory disorders, vascular gas embolisms, etc.;
- Cardiac pathology: arrhythmic variant of ischemic heart disease (IHD), angina pectoris, arrhythmias, extrasystoles, heart failure, decompensation of postinfarction states, intoxication with cardiac glycosides, pulmonary-heart failure, etc.;
- Gastrointestinal pathology: gastric and duodenal ulcer, post-hemorrhagic syndrome after gastric bleeding, intestinal diseases;
- Liver pathology: acute hepatitis, chronic hepatitis, cirrhosis, liver failure;
- Pathology of the nervous system: ischemic stroke, craniocerebral trauma, encephalopathies, spinal cord trauma, peripheral nerve paresis;
- Children’s pathology of the nervous system;
- Poisonings: carbon monoxide poisoning, methemoglobin-forming substances, cyanides;
- Ocular pathology: circulatory disorders of the retina, diabetic retinopathy, optic nerve dystrophy in methyl alcohol poisoning;
- Endocrine pathology: decompensated insulin-dependent diabetes, complications of diabetes, diffuse toxic goiter;
- Maxillofacial pathology: periodontal disease, necrotizing gingivitis and stomatitis, healing after plastic surgery;
- Gynecology: chronic inflammatory diseases of the pelvic organs in women. There is a marked improvement in sexual function in elderly men after a course of OBT;
- Obstetrical pathology: intrauterine fetal hypoxia, threatened miscarriage, fetal hypotrophy, immunoconflict pregnancy, pregnancy with concomitant pathology, endocrine pathology in women, infertility of various etiologies;
- Wound pathology: prevention of wound infection, sluggish granulation wounds, burn wound surfaces, frostbite, postoperative wounds in plastic surgery and others;
- Cohesion diseases, air and gas embolism, decompression sickness;
- Radiation lesions: radiation osteonecrosis, myelitis, enteritis; a special group of patients receiving chemotherapy and radiation therapy for oncological diseases.
