Fertility

Both women and men experience infertility issues, for a variety of reasons. One of the primary causes is reduced blood flow to the tissues (ischemia) and consequent low tissue oxygenation. This oxidative stress can be alleviated by hyperbaric oxygen therapy, helping both women and men in their struggles with infertility.

Benefits of HBOT for infertility include

  • Oxygenates organs and promotes the growth of microcirculation

  • Enhances fibroblast migration and mitosis, and increases collagen synthesis, which directly promotes and ripens the tissue for fertility

  • Facilitates the effects of additional immune-stimulating programs, including herbs and other nutritional regimes

  • Alleviates tissue ischemia

  • Reduces painful inflammation and swelling

  • Facilitates elimination of toxins and metabolic byproducts from the body, which are greatly elevated in patients with low fertility

  • Increases male genital microcirculation, thereby improving spermatic morphological and functional characteristics as well as spermatogenesis
