HBOT, Long Covid
I had long covid for over a year and my symptoms were fairly severe. Chronic Fatigue, Cognitive impairment, Sleep Disturbance, Reynard Syndrome, Arthritis, GI issues etc. I was being treated in the Long Covid Clinic and I have tried many different medicines, therapeutics supplements, diets and treatments to little or no avail.
I stumbled across Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) on a chat room and thought I'd give it a go. Well to my surprise after a few 1 hour sessions I started to feel better. At first I noticed that I could laugh, and that I could think straight and had more energy. I also had vivid dreams that night and a good nights sleep without disturbance. After 20 sessions I noticed a bigger improvement in my cognitive ability particularly my concentration to read a book, fill in an online form and plan things in the future.
My fatigue started to lift further. After 40 sessions I started to feel more like my old self and started cycling again without the terrible post exercise malaise and headaches. It was not a miraculous cure, but for me it seemed to give my body what it needed to heal itself. I knew I wanted to reach out to other people trapped in this terrible energy cycle of boom and bust. I decided I wanted to make HBOT more affordable and accessible to anyone suffering in a similar in situations. So please do not suffer in silence.

As shown in the graph above the most common symptom for sufferers of Long Covid is Fatigue, malaise, tiredness, and a feeling of exhaustion. This is similar to other post viral conditions such as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME), chronic fatigue syndrome.
Clinical trials of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) have been shown to elevate ATP (adenosine triphosphate) levels, the principal molecule for storing and transferring energy in cells and to redirect unhealthy metabolic pathways and reduces NAD+ deficiency.
Cognitive Impairment (Brain Fog)
Clinical Trials have found that HBOT does three major things. Firstly HBOT delivers 97% more oxygen to brain tissue and encourages neuroplasticity that leads to repair of impaired brain function and tissue.
Secondly it restores the intricate balance between Neurotransmitters such as serotonin, dopamine and endorphins and finally it works as 'gene therapy' to reprogram unhealthy metabolic pathways.
Arthritis, Muscle Pain and Inflammatory conditions.
Next is the inflammatory conditions Long covid sufferers experience such as joint pain and muscle aches but also micro clotting and Gastro intestinal issues.
HBOT is well known for anti-inflammatory powers and is frequently used to treat inflammatory conditions and to help with pain management. It helps oxygenate damaged tissue and relieve and repair any damage that may be causing the pain.
Lung Tissue Damage
Shortness of breath, persistent cough and lung impairment may be because of lung damage form the initial infection.
HBOT may help with the inflammatory response to the infection and some of the data from clinical trials shows a reduction in the density of the lung lesions.
