Holistic Hyperbarics Lyme Commercial Transcript
Sylvia: My name is Sylvia and I have Lyme Disease. Before I started getting hyperbaric treatments, I was super, super ill. I had no energy, I was bedridden and I was in pain 24 hours a day.
Alex: I knew that hyperbaric oxygen therapy definitely could help with Lyme and give people a chance to heal from all of the fatigue and the brain fog and the pain that you experience when you have Lyme.
Dr. Zayd Ratansi: Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a way to get more oxygen into your body.
Sylvia: I had extreme neuropathy throughout my body, which is from one of the coinfections of Lyme, and I was so ill that the first time I came in for treatment I couldn’t drive myself or come in without a friend walking me.
Alex: But after that first day of getting her in the chamber, it was remarkable to see the changes.
Sylvia: My first experience at Holistic Hyperbarics was incredible.
Dr. Zayd Ratansi: You are getting more oxygen into your blood, then your heart will pump it to all your metabolically active tissues and organs and organ systems, causing energy production. Energy production, so now the brain starts getting more oxygen, more energy, quicker repair, function and regeneration, and that happens for all metabolically active tissue.
Sylvia: For the first time in years, I was able to drive myself, get around on my own, have enough energy during the course of a day to do things that would be super simple for most people, like make a meal, take a shower, those kinds of things. So my energy difference has been just amazing.
Alex: Every day she came in, she came in three days a weeks for 90 minutes for several months, and throughout that time we would just hit milestone after milestone after milestone.
Sylvia: To literally take a nap, and life was completely different. I started being able to make dinner, have, sit at the table with my husband.
Dr. Zayd Ratansi: Think about it, 25% of the oxygen that goes into your body goes into the brain and is utilized by the brain. The brain only weighs 3% of your body weight, so it is the highest consumer of oxygen.
Sylvia: What I like about being in the chamber is that I can move around, I’m totally comfortable, which for me isn’t easy because of the Lyme. And so I can use my cell phone, which is what I do a lot, I text people, I read articles, I mean I can do anything I can do with my cell phone, and so that make the hour and a half go by super quick.
Dr. Zayd Ratansi: And it’s very simple. You’re just breathing normally, and every time you breathe, more oxygen will enter your bloodstream and get to areas that are metabolically active, like your brain, your heart, your joints, and energize.
Sylvia: I felt well taken care of, the staff have been very nice and it’s made my experience there super easy.
Alex: It’s been really fun to see how she’s gotten her life back through her hyperbaric sessions. She’s a tremendous example of how, if you stick with treatments and do all the healthy things you’re supposed to do along with the treatments, how your life can change with hyperbarics.
Sylvia: I felt like my life was coming back for the first time in six years. It was remarkable.
