My name is Nicole and I’ve been treating with hyperbaric therapy for almost a year. I’ve noticed many great changes so far: a boost in my immune system; I haven’t gotten sick with every little bug the kids bring home from school. I have also experienced a reduction in inflammation in my hands which I have had since I was 19 years old. I get a treatment after a tough workout and it helps flush out the lactic acid so I’m rarely sore for very long and have extra energy to still be productive with work and motherhood.
The most amazing result I have experienced with hyperbarics has been from a mold exposure. I spent all of 2018 travelling all over the country to work medical conferences. Almost every week, I was on at least 2 airplanes, but sometimes more. All of the toxic air on the planes coupled with staying at multiple hotels with old ventilation systems and sometimes obvious mold, left my immune system in constant fight mode. I was always feeling like I was fighting off a cold or respiratory infection. The final straw came when the home I lived in became moldy after a leak in the master bathroom. I was very ill: my skin turned a slight yellow color; my hair became thin and brittle; I was coughing all day and night (usually with black discharge); I had a very hard time focusing on tasks and the brain fog made it hard to finish complete sentences; my hormones were all over the place; my joints and skin hurt; I couldn’t sleep; and my ear tubes were constantly throbbing. I would do treatments of hyperbarics which would keep me functioning on a day-to-day basis but the exposure in my home kept my immune system and body depleted. After several attempts to remediate the mold problem with no success, we finally made the decision to move out of our house. Once we were in our new mold-free home, I began hitting the hyperbarics hard. I treated every day for 2 weeks. At first, it was very difficult. As the treatment went to work killing off the mold toxins in my body, my symptoms increased initially, especially the pain in my ears. After 3 or 4 days of intense detoxing, I finally started seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. Not only did my symptoms go away, I started feeling even better than before the mold exposure. My energy levels went way up, I was able to start exercising again, my focus and communication skills are sharp again, my immune system is stronger than ever and I just feel great! I’m very grateful to have experienced healing from hyperbaric therapy and even more grateful that I get to share my story with clients here at 123HBOT.
