What is Hyperbaric Therapy?
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is the medical use of oxygen in a pressurized environment. Increased pressure allows for oxygen to dissolve and saturate the blood plasma, which yields a broad variety of positive physiological, biochemical and cellular effects.
HBOT has been demonstrated in several clinical studies to enhance the body’s innate ability to repair and regenerate. It is used as an adjunct therapy to complement and enhance the healing process in both chronic and acute conditions.
Benefits of HBOT
Who should not do HBOT?
Patients with head colds that can not clear their ears should not use the hyperbaric chamber. Although there is space in the chamber, those who are claustrophobic should use caution when planning to use the chamber. Patients should not use the chamber under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or pain medication.
What you need to remember prior to using the HBOT:
The Flowers group has been a life saver! They have helped me over come 7 years of illness in almost 4 months! So thankful for all of their knowledge and the compassion they have for their patients.
After years (decades) of thinking I was healthy (read: macho American male), and frustration of bad hormone levels, I became a patient of Dr. Flowers. In my fourth month of treatment, my body chemistry is within normal ranges, I have lost over 30 lbs., I have noticeably more energy, and am motivated to exercise every day. I am excited to see what I can be after year under Dr. Flowers care.
I’ve been seeing Dr. Flowers for about 9 months and I love the personal attention I get from him and the office staff! I am never rushed out nor have I ever had the “next” feeling you get with so many traditional Doctors’ offices these days. I love the more natural whole body approach to healing and would recommend him to anyone!
Dr Flowers and His nurse, Misty, are an amazing team. They are thorough, responsive and do an exceptional job of educating you so that you are motivated to be an active participant in your Plan of care. This is the first time my hormones have been balanced since before my total hysterectomy in 2004. I've suffered with severe migraine headaches since age 9 and have tried everything from medicines to acupuncture. After 4 months of HRT and herbal therapies with Dr Flowers my headaches are few and far between a 90% improvement. I'm still on the journey but there is not doubt that my quality of life has improved.
Love the welcoming atmosphere created by the staff and Dr. Flowers.
They gave me hope that I would be overcoming my issues and feeling better soon.
I love the individual attention I received from Dr. Flowers and the time he allotted for my visit.
There is a lot of one on one time with both Doctor and Nurses and I feel that my concerns and comments are heard.
liked the personal attention given by Misty and Dr. Flowers. I appreciated the hour block of time where I could sit down and really go over all the lab results and treatment plan. Never felt rushed. Always feel like
