Hyperbaric oxygen therapy protects the body

Free radical, oxidative stress, and inflammation are all common markers that are exhibited during many, if not all, pathologies and the hallmark of many chronic disease states. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has been traditionally used for reducing the damaging effects of radiation therapy (RT). Since RT has been shown to cause excessive oxidative stress and inflammation, researchers took note of HBOT’s potential to reverse both of these factors involved in radiation damaged tissue <view study>
