HBOT Management for Rheumatoid Arthritis

HBOT is markedly superior to the routine managements employed in many cases of rheumatoid arthritis. In a large series, the following results were published:

  • Remission in 23% of cases
  • Significant improvement in 51.4% of cases
  • Mild-to-moderate improvement in 51.4% of cases
  • No effect in 8.1% of cases

At the Houston Wellness Clinic, HBOT is used in conjunction with certain anti-inflammatory herbs, dedicated plant stem cells and natural inhibitors of the various inflammatory leukotrienes that are associated with auto-immune diseases. If underlying infections that are frequently associated with R.A. are present these are aggressively treated.

The total summarized effect of management was 91.9%. HBOT has actually been found to inhibit the process. This may be due to a number of actions:

  • Stabilizing the immune system
  • Strengthening the body's ability to eliminate pathogenic organisms
  • Lowering the sedimentation rate
  • Increases analgesia

Effects are best felt in early stages of the disease.
