Can you use a hyperbaric chamber to treat cancer?

Cancer Center For Healing uses Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) as one of the integrative treatment plans for our patients. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is a well-established treatment for cancer and other diseases. Through breathing pure oxygen in a pressurized room, patients lungs’ can gather up to three times more oxygen than would be possible breathing pure oxygen at normal air pressure. The patient’s blood carries this pure oxygen throughout the body to stimulate the release of growth factors and stem cells. The release of the stem cells and growth factors promote healing.

Cancer Center For Healing’s Oxidative Preconditioning Therapy is to give patients hyperbaric oxygen sessions combined with Nutraceuticals and Trental (Pentoxifylline), to augment HBOT’s effect. Trental is FDA-approved for the improvement the flow of blood by decreasing its viscosity (making it “thinner”), increasing blood flow through the microcirculation system and enhancing tissue oxygenation.

Our staff of physicians will work along side your primary care physician to design a pre- and post-chemotherapy treatment protocol specifically for your condition.

At Cancer Center For Healing we offer the ease of integrative and ground breaking therapies under one roof. The Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is conveniently located at our center in Irvine. We invite you to come take a tour of our center.
