Hyperbaric Chamber at Carolina Brain CenterHolistic healthcare has been up to some interesting things in recent years. Through research and experience, Dr. Dane has blended hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) and ketone esters to aid in the treatment of certain health conditions and to improve performance in athletes and patients who are looking for ways to feel younger.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a treatment in which patients breathe a higher concentration of oxygen while under increased atmospheric pressure, therefore, increasing oxygen tissue saturation. Dr. Keiran Clark, professor at Oxford University, created the only ketone ester that is exactly what the body makes when a person is in ketosis, the process by which the body makes fuel from fat. The combination provides the brain and body its two favorite super fuels enabling faster recovery and more stamina for treatment. 

This is a revolutionary service that we at Carolina Brain Center are happy to offer to patients who have not had success with traditional treatments.

Learn about how hyperbaric oxygen therapy and ketosis work together so you can determine if this revolutionary medical approach is right for you or your loved one.

What Is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy?

First, it will help for you to understand what each part of this process is.

You may have heard of hyperbaric oxygen therapy before, perhaps in the context of a hyperbaric oxygen chamber. What exactly is this therapy?

The word “hyperbaric” refers to pressurized gas, and that’s exactly what’s involved in hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

Patients enter a chamber where they breathe a higher concentration of oxygen. Because of the increased atmospheric pressure, oxygen saturation in tissues also increases. This fills the body with increased oxygen, allowing every cell to become essentially doused in the healthy gas.

What does that do? It helps cells grow and heal so that the body can recover from diseases, injuries, and conditions such as chronic inflammation, infections, strokes, and multiple sclerosis.

What Is Ketosis?

Since we are discussing how hyperbaric oxygen therapy and ketosis work together, let’s now talk about what ketosis is and then how it relates to hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

Ketosis is a natural bodily process that is achieved when the body can’t get energy from blood sugar. Instead, it creates energy from fat stores.

You have probably heard of the keto diet, a popular weight-loss method. The logic is that if you reduce or eliminate carbohydrates from your diet and instead eat lots of fats such as those found in meat, you can reduce body weight without going hungry.

The human body is said to be in a state of ketosis when it is producing ketones, substances resulting from the use of fats for energy. The ketone esters we use put the body in a deep state of ketosis in 20 minutes without having to be on a ketogenic diet. 

Bringing Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and Ketosis Together in Holistic Healthcare

So, how are these two health concepts related?

Ketone esters and hyperbaric oxygen therapy work together to provide fuel to cells. Ketones and oxygen promote healing and recovery to the brain and body. As a result, patients may see improvements in their conditions.
