Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a medical treatment that enhances the body's natural healing process by inhalation of 100% oxygen in a total body chamber, where atmospheric pressure is increased and controlled.
The disease that results in the scarring - the sclerosis - in Multiple Sclerosis is associated with damage to blood vessels in the nervous system. This not a blockage but leakage which leads to inflammation abd hypoxia - which simply means lack of oxygen. A high level of oxygen reduces the hypoxia and the latest research has shown that it down regulates the genes that programme inflammation. In other words, oxygen induces remission. Healing is impossible without sufficient oxygen being present.
