Preflood HEALTH Using a HYPERBARIC Chamber?
Air bubbles in amber (petrified tree sap) often have 50% more oxygen than now (Time magazine, Nov. 9, 1987, p.82). That is 21% now versus 32% then. Before the Flood the canopy of ice increased air pressure to double what it is today. That is why dinosaurs were able to live even though their lungs and nostrils were small. Not only does hemoglobin take on oxygen but your plasma will get oxygen saturated. Pre-flood humans could probably run for hundreds of miles without getting tired. They also healed faster due to air pressure. Prior to Noah's Flood, the atmosphere was 35% OXYGEN giving people more energy; and TWICE the atmospheric PRESSURE with a much higher electro-magnetic field around the earth giving longer life and larger growth. This environment was "VERY GOOD" (Gen 1:31). Today we have "this present EVIL WORLD" (Gal. 1:4) where the pressure norm is 15 psi at sea level. We normally breathe 21% oxygen and 78% nitrogen. But hyperbaric chambers are available which may to some extent imitate the ideal that existed before Noah's Flood. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is intermittent treatment of the entire body with 100% OXYGEN at greater than normal atmospheric pressure (up to TWICE atmospheric pressure). This INCREASED PRESSURE and INCREASED PERCENTAGE dissolve OXYGEN in the blood plasma and in all body cells, tissues and flluids at up to 10 TIMES normal concentration.
1.) slowing cancer growth
2.) boosting the supply of circulating stem cells
3.) stimulating the growth of new capillaries and blood vessels to locations with reduced circulation, improving blood flow to areas with arterial blockage
4.) boosting the efficacy of chemotherapy drugs
5.) Increasing survival rates in patients with metastatic cancer by 77% when combined with a ketogenic diet
6.) promoting new nerve growth in the brain
7.) reducing radiation-induced inflammation in tissue and bones
8.) greatly increasing oxygen concentration in all body tissues, even with reduced or blocked blood flow;
9.) supporting faster wound healing
10.) stimulating an adaptive increase in superoxide dismutase (SOD), one of the body's principal, internally produced antioxidants and free radical scavengers, and
11.) aiding the treatment of infection by enhancing white blood cell action
A landmark study conducted at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine revealed that HBOT (HyperBaric Oxygen Therapy) dramatically increases stem cell activity. The research team, led by Stephen Thom, MD, PhD, hypothesized that stem cells might play some role in the remarkable benefits of HBOT. So they measured circulating levels of stem cells in the blood of study volunteers before, during, and after 20 treatments of HBOT. The results were astounding. After only one treatment, concentrations of stem cells doubled, and after the full course, there was an eight-fold increase in these rejuvenating cells! I’ve always known that HBOT works. At the Whitaker Wellness Institute, we have a very busy hyperbaric center, treating up to 60 patients a day, and we have seen absolutely amazing results. Stroke patients once told there was no hope of regaining function are walking and talking again. Diabetics scheduled for amputation of their legs due to gangrenous ulcers have cancelled surgeries. People with severe burns, trauma, and other injuries heal so rapidly that they return to normal function much earlier than anticipated. I had long believed that HBOT’s therapeutic powers were attributed to flooding the cells with oxygen. (When you breathe 100 percent oxygen in a special pressurized chamber, oxygen levels in all of your body’s tissues dramatically increase.) Now I know that it also mobilizes stem cells, something few other therapies can do, and this goes a long way toward explaining the magnitude of its benefits in so many conditions.
HBOT has recently gained importance for treatment of chronic degenerative health problems related to atheroschlerosis, stroke, peripheral vascular disease, diabetic ulcers, wound healing, cerebral palsey, brain injury, multiple sclerosis, macular degeneration, and many other disorders. Wherever blood flow and oxygen delivery to vital organs is reduced, function and healing can be aided with HBOT. When the brain is injured by stroke, CP or trauma, HBOT may activate stunned parts of the brain to restore function. Results can be dramatic. Patients with Cerebral Vascular disease commonly recover from complications of stroke more readily after HBOT. This is also true for potentially gangrenous legs and feet caused by blocked circulation, and for slow healing diabetic ulcers. HBOT relieves pain, helps fight infection, and keeps threatened tissues alive.
