The Research

Back in 1954 it was proven that Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy makes tumors more sensitive to radiation and in 2012 research came out showing strong evidence that Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy has tumor-inhibitory effects in certain cancers (prostate, bowel, breast, brain)! Pulse Electro Magnetic Field Therapy also has evidence to suggest it slows down tumor growth and increase the immune response in people with cancer.

At Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Christchurch we pride ourselves on treating people as holistic beings. All parts of each person are integrated and none a separate from one another and we approach healing from this place.

Both Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and Pulse Electro Magnetic Field Therapy work on the whole of the person. They reduce overall inflammation, toxins, and increase the immune systems response and oxygen supply which is the body’s most important supplement – If you’re not quite convinced, hold your breath and see how long you survive for!

Cancer & HBOT + PEMF

Bryn Currie (Clinical Medical Physics Specialist)

“Being a cancer treatment specialist and leading a healthy lifestyle didn’t prevent me from falling prey to head and neck cancer. The treatment regime at the hospital was very demanding with surgery, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy spread over 3 months.

My family and I looked for options to enhance the recovery process as my skin, hearing, mouth, and throat were all damaged. We are so glad that Bex and Callum at Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Christchurch were able to provide a hyperbaric oxygen treatment service.

All of the hospital specialists involved in my care were surprised and impressed with the rapidity of recovery I experienced. In my professional estimation Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy was a crucial element of my recovery and I’d recommend this service as part of a holistic package for anyone seeking better healing and health.”

I have been a client of Bex’s for the last four months & have been using HBOT & PEMF for my cancer tumors & it has been absolutely amazing! I have had great health benefits, including my tumors shrinking and my overall health improving.

Bex’s caring disposition has certainly helped me feel a sense of hope, by her listening to me and encouraging me. When you are unwell, having someone who offers you a positive outlook and hope, is vital to your wellbeing.

I felt completely confident talking to Bex about my health, in fact in discussing my health concerns with Bex she was able to help me with evidence based support services that were of benefit to me.

I thoroughly recommend you ring Bex and chat to her about she can help support your wellbeing now!”

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and Cancer – A Review

“Hypoxia is a critical hallmark of solid tumors and involves enhanced cell survival, angiogenesis, glycolytic metabolism, and metastasis. Hyperbaric oxygen can be used to overcome hypoxia. HBO treatment enhances the amount of dissolved oxygen in the plasma, thereby increasing O2 tissue delivery independent of hemoglobin [10]. As in normal tissue, the pO2 in cancer tissue increases significantly during HBO exposure [11]. Thus, elevation of the tumor oxygen pressure has been shown to be preserved clinically for approximately 30 min after HBO exposure [12, 13]. HBO therapy is today accepted and routinely used for many disorders, related to both ischemia and/or hypoxia [10]. HBO is considered safe and complications are rare using today’s standard treatment protocols.”

Oxygen – Key To Most Life – Decelerates Many Cancer Tumors When Combined With Radiation Therapy

“Over the past several years, the research of Dr. Mason, professor of radiology and the paper’s senior author, and his colleagues has been building on findings that show lack of oxygen actually stimulates the growth of new blood vessels in tumors and leads to metastasis and genetic instability in cancer.”

Hyperbaric Oxygen Creates chemosensitization by inhibiting HIF1α/HIF2α-Sox2

“The survival time of the two groups under the same TMZ treatment
was analyzed, and the results revealed that mice that were exposed to HBO had a longer survival time, with a median survival of approximately 37 days, than control mice, with a median survival time of only 30.5 days…”

Hyperbaric Oxygen Boosts Immune Responses Against Solid Tumors

“The results demonstrate that HBO promoted PD-1 Ab delivery and T cells infiltration into tumor parenchyma by depleting the extracellular matrix’s main components, such as collagen and fibronectin. Furthermore, HBO disrupts hypoxia-mediated immunosuppression and helps PD-1 Ab trigger robust cytotoxic T lymphocytes and long-lasting immunological memory to inhibit tumor relapses. Such enhanced immune responses are effective in solid tumors from rodents and the cancer cells from hepatocellular carcinoma patients. The results illustrate that HBO bolsters antitumor efficacy of PD-1 Ab, and the HBO-PD-1 Ab combination is a promising stroma-rich solid tumors’ treatment in the clinic.”

Mechanisms and Therapeutic Effectiveness of pulsed Electro Magnetic Field Therapy in Oncology

“The specific claim, supported by the described in vivo studies, is that all treated groups showed slower tumor growth rate if compared with untreated control group, confirming that PEMF therapy can modulate the physiology and electrochemistry of cancer cells and influence cell membrane systems and mitosis. In addition, PEMFs induce some changes in membrane transport capacity through impacting the osmotic potential, ionic valves and leading to reduction in cellular stress factors, increase in the rate of DNA transcription, and modulation of immune response. In conclusion, only two clinical studies have used PEMF therapy for cancer treatment. These studies show that PEMF therapy is safe and promising compared to other available cancer therapies.”

05 – Dom D’Agostino, Ph.D.: ketosis, n=1, exogenous ketones, HBOT, seizures, and cancer

In this podcast the relationship between HBOT and cancer is discussed. They also go into detail discussing how Ketosis and HBOT work together to create results for people who are suffering from cancer.

Please note this is quite a science heavy based podcast but if you are wanting to understand the scientific evidence then we highly recommend you have a listen.
