Cancer (Treatment Synergy)
When receiving treatment for cancer, HBOT can work in synergy with chemotherapy, radiation, and the ketogenic diet. It may also mitigate side effects of chemotherapy (such as “chemo brain”), radiation, and decrease the recovery time after surgical procedures. In addition, HBOT is FDA approved to treat latent radiation injury.
Some physicians and patients are concerned that HBOT may actually accelerate the growth of cancer. Several recent studies have shown this not to be the case.
The use of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy to treat cancer side effects aims to reduce the damage to healthy tissue and blood vessels caused by radiation exposure, helping the body become stronger and fight off the disease.
How you will benefit from HBOT
- Reduces side effects from radiation exposure
- Increases blood oxygen levels
- Helps regrow damaged blood vessels
- Improves immune system function
- Increases the release of stem cells from the bone marrow
- As a chemo and radiation sensitizer

Charles Law: “The volume of a given mass of an ideal gas is directly proportional to its temperature on the absolute temperature scale (in Kelvin), if pressure and the amount of gas remain constant; that is, the volume of the gas increases or decreases by the same factor as its temperature.”
Our experienced clinical team is always available to answer any questions you may have about Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and our facilities. You deserve the best – Our mission is to achieve patient success through personalized, innovative, and compassionate care that enhances your healing potential. Since Cancer (Treatment Synergy) currently isn’t on the FDA approved list, insurance companies most likely won’t cover payment for this service.
