HYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY HELPS TO IMPROVE AUTISM SYMPTOMS, STUDY SHOWS
Over the past few years, hyperbaric oxygen therapy is being used increasingly by doctors and clinicians for its off-label uses, and autism is one of the largest conditions, particularly for lower pressure protocols.
It is very well known that autistic children will have much higher levels of inflammation presenting in the brain (neuroinflammation). This study looked at lower pressure protocols and followed markers of inflammation.
They found significant improvements with both ambient air and with breathing 100% oxygen, including anti-inflammatory effects. More importantly, they were also able to observe significant clinical benefits and improvements of HBOT<view study>

HYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY SHOWN TO HELP WITH AUTISM￼
HYPERBARIC OXYGEN THERAPY SHOWN TO HELP WITH AUTISM
“Children with autism who received hyperbaric treatment at 1.3 ATA and 24% oxygen for 40 hourly sessions had significant improvements in overall functioning, receptive language, social interaction, eye contact, and sensory/cognitive awareness compared to children who received slightly pressurized room air…” <view study>
