Multiple Sclerosis (MS)

Multiple Sclerosis is a cell-mediated              autoimmune condition characterised by      repeated episodes of inflammation of the nervous tissue in the brain and spinal cord, causing loss of the insulating myelin sheath.

MS may present with the following symptoms:

The main benefits of HBOT for people with MS:

Reduction of fatigue with improved quality of life

Improved bladder function

More complete remission of attacks and a

reduction of relapses

Reduced progression of symptoms by stabilising the disease

Less deterioration in brain function.

Oxygen is a powerful anti-inflammatory which can help  Multiple Sclerosis as well as inflammation in other tissues in the body.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy works by greatly increasing cellular oxygen intake, which is one of the main results of increasing blood flow. 

A good analogy is this: if you try to dissolve a teaspoon of sugar in a cold glass of water, it will only partly dissolve. Warm up the water and all the sugar will dissolve. This is what happens to oxygen under pressure. The extra oxygen in your body will boost your energy, fitness and general wellbeing and enhance your body’s ability to heal itself.

General guidance, especially on protocols and the likelihood of benefit, is obtained from the coordinator of the Oxygen Helpline Petra Kliempt BSc MPH PhD, who is the Hon. Specialist Trainer in Hyperbaric Medicine to the NHS in Scotland.  The Oxygen Helpline and MS National Therapy Centres are also assisted by the Hon. Medical Adviser Emeritus Professor Philip B.James

Our centre operates a self-referral process.

It is always recommended that clients visit their GP or Consultant before commencing HBOT.

There is no intention implied or otherwise that HBOT is given so with the intention of it being a cure diagnosis or as a preventative for any disease.  Any references, studies or testimonials on our website, or in our literature does not imply that similar results will occur when the same therapy is experienced by another.
