Studies have shown promising results by using Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy to reduce the inflammatory symptoms associated with Autism in the brain and gastrointestinal system along with bringing actual healing to those damaged systems.

Treatments in hyperbaric chambers eliminate numerous neurological problems that are the basis of autism. The researchers made a simple conclusion: If hypoxia is one of the causes of ASD, an extra dose of oxygen will help. HBOT strongly oxygenates the brain and the whole body, improving blood flow and stimulating microcirculation. It provides the body with 15 times more life-giving element than during breathing. Blood, lymph, and cerebrospinal fluid carry oxygen to every tissue and cell, including the brain. Oxygenates the brain cells and stimulates them to function.

Why does HBOT help children with ASD?
The exact reasons it helps children with ASD are still being researched, however, there are some clear correlations one can observe in the current research.

  • First, it removes toxins, such as heavy metals from the body.
  • It reduces inflammation allowing oxygen-deprived areas to have a return of blood flow.
  • It builds new capillaries in the brain.
  • It reduces the inflammation in the gut

What do parents of children with ASD report?
Parents and doctors of autistic children have reported benefits of HBOT that included:

  • Improved sleep
  • Children becoming calmer and more affectionate
  • Improved focus and attention
  • Improved bowel function
  • More “Present”
  • Less Sensory Disturbance
  • Improved Cognition
  • More Language
  • More “Connected” to Family
