Limerick’s Ultimate Health Clinic introduces hyperbaric oxygen therapy

Limerick’s Ultimate Health Clinic now offer hyperbaric oxygen therapy. This therapy form involves putting you in a chamber that maintains a very high degree of air pressure, with the air consisting of pure oxygen.
When you enter the hyperbaric chamber, you increase the total level of oxygen in the body to the point where the oxygen starts rapidly filling the body and travelling into the blood stream, where it can then fight bacteria and cause the release of growth factors and stem cells, both of which help the body with the healing process.
Among the myriad health benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy are: increased oxygen concentration in all body tissues, even with reduced or blocked blood flow; stimulation of the growth of new blood vessels to locations with reduced circulation, improving blood flow to areas with arterial blockage; encouragement for rebounds in arterial dilation, resulting in an increased blood vessel improving blood flow to compromised organs; an adaptive increase in superoxide dismutase (SOD), one of the body’s principal, internally produced antioxidants and free radical scavengers; as well as aiding in the treatment of infection by enhancing white blood cell action.
