Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Autism

The alarming number of children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) is recent years has tragically increased; from 1 in 150 in 2000 to 1 in 88 in 2008. Due to that increase, more and more parents have turned to alternative forms of treatment to counteract the underlying symptoms of autism. Traditional medicines have often failed at producing desired results for many patients with autism and their families. However, studies have demonstrated hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) as an emerging treatment that parents and physicians are utilizing to help ameliorate the effects of ASD. This non-invasive treatment is as simple as a one hour daily session, where the parent and child enter a hyperbaric chamber and receive increased levels of oxygen. HBOT has been shown to decrease inflammation and improve cognitive functions, which have substantially helped thousands of ASD patients. Studies have demonstrated the benefits of HBOT for autism with the following:
