Evidence showing the healing relationship between Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, Pulsed Electro Magnetic Field Therapy & Alzheimer’s/Cognitive Decline
At Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Christchurch we understand how challenging Alzheimer’s / Cognitive Decline can be for everyone involved. It is a disease currently that there aren’t many treatments out there that have had results, so it is very exciting to be able to offer something to our clients that does.
What Dr Dave Jenkins has to say about HBOT & PEMF for Alzheimer’s
Dr Dave Jenkins, founder of “The End of Alzheimer’s”, co-published a paper with Professor Dale Bredesen in 2018, which documents the reversal of 100 cases of cognitive decline including Alzheimer’s Disease and its harbingers Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI), and Subjective Cognitive Impairment (SCI). He has the following to say about PEMF & HBOT:
“I am excited about the potential of PEMF and HBOT combination to improve outcomes for people with cognitive decline. In fact, PEMF is a very new and proven therapy for even moderate Alzheimer’s with results being superior to the current medications, Preliminary human and animal studies are very promising and based upon this research a full controlled study on Alzheimer’s is under way however results will take too long for our clients to wait.
I have discussed this with several of the leading scientist[s] involved in the research and all agree there is a lot of potential benefits without any significant risk.”
Our Protocol we offer At Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Christchurch For Cognitive Decline
“We recommend Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy (PEMF) and mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (mHBOT) as the two main complementary modalities and highly recommend consideration of the Ketogenic Diet, which we can also advise you about.
Our treatment assistance proposal stems from our history of success with many TBI/concussion cases. Science tell us that underlying brain inflammation is similar in other causes of cognitive decline, hence our belief that this combination of therapies is likely to be effective for other conditions affecting the Brain.”
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy & Pulse Electro Magnetic Field Therapy Increase’s All Markers Of The Brain
“The study provides evidence that HBOT & PEMF can improve the functioning of the brain in Alzheimer’s and Cognitive Decline Patients. 25 sessions were completed and all markers in the pre and post test showed significant improvements when the brain activity was measured on the brain gauge test. The areas that were measured were summarized as accuracy, time perception, focus, fatigue, speed and time perception.”
Could An Existing Oxygen Therapy Treat Alzheimer’s?
“In a hyperbaric oxygen chamber that they custom-built for the small animals, the researchers gave the transgenic mice 1 hour of HBOT every day for 14 days. They also gave another group of normal mice (the controls) the same treatment.
It revealed that HBOT reduced oxygen starvation, “amyloid burden,” and the type of tau protein seen in Alzheimer’s. There was also evidence of improvement in behavioral symptoms. The researchers’ analysis showed various biological and biochemical signs that HBOT had reduced inflammation in the brain.
The results showed that, compared with the control mice, HBOT reduced both disease related plaques and brain inflammation by 40 percent, and it also reduced “behavioral deficits” in the transgenic mice. The team suggests that the findings show that HBOT shows promise as a treatment for Alzheimer’s disease, especially given that it “is used in the clinic to treat various indications, including neurological conditions.”
New Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Protocol Can Improve Cognitive Function of Older Adults
“The main areas of improvement were attention, information processing speed, and executive function, in addition to the global cognitive function, all of which typically decline with age. Moreover, there was a significant correlation between the cognitive changes and improved cerebral blood flow in specific brain locations.
We found that HBOT induced a significant increase in brain blood flow, which correlated with cognitive improvement, confirming our theory. One can conjecture that similar beneficial effect of HBOT can be induced in other organs of the aging body.”
