What is radiation Therapy? The use of high-energy radiation in order to shrink tumors and/or kill cancer cells in the human body. This is accomplished thru X-Rays, Gamma Rays or Charged Particles (types of radiation) under the detailed management of a trained / qualified physician.

How Does Radiation Therapy Kill Cancer Cells? Radiation therapy kills cancer cells by damaging the cancer cells DNA.

Does Radiation Therapy Kill only Cancer Cells? No, radiation therapy can also damage normal cells, leading to many side effects.


HBOT for Radiation Recovery

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) Can Help in Recovery After Radiation therapy?

Under normal circumstances, oxygen is transported throughout the body only by red blood cells. With HBOT, oxygen is carried in all of the body’s fluids including the plasma and can be carried to areas where circulation is diminished or blocked.  Extra oxygen can reach all of the damaged tissues and healing is accelerated.


  • Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Provides 12-15 times more oxygen
  • Oxygen Forced into Solution, Carried in Body Fluids, Plasma and Red Blood Cells
  • Increased Cellular Recovery
  • The Body Produces 8 Times More Stem Cells
  • Capillary Growth is Enhanced
  • Kills Anaerobic Bacteria
  • Healing is Accelerated
  • Wounds Heal Faster
