Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer's Disease is one of the cruelest sentences that can be imposed on an individual as he or she enters the golden years of life. The victim slowly, inevitably loses mental ability and cognizance of everything and everyone he or she has known and loved. Mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy may help alleviate the symptoms of Alzheimer's by greatly increasing the oxygen levels that are so vital to the function of the brain and nervous system. Brain imaging scans have demonstrated the effectiveness of oxygen therapy in revitalizing blood flow to cortical tissues and increasing brain function. Because of its proven ability to increase the production of stem cells, mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy will likely play an integral role in the development of an effective stem cell treatment for Alzheimer's Disease.
