Therefore, whenever inflammation brings more fluid to a region of the body that is comprised of solid tissue and hollow blood vessels, the first thing to happen is that the hollow blood vessel lumens will be compressed and deliver fewer red cells carrying oxygen to the area.
Once inflammation is reduced the secondary vascular narrowing is improved allowing increasing amounts of red blood cells carrying oxygen to reach the hypoxic areas and SPECT scans will once again "light up" turning from blue to yellow.
Likewise it is my theory that it only takes a little bit of increased oxygen tension for viruses to leave.
Studies have shown abnormities in the autistic brain whereby it does not produce and subsequently does not use serotonin properly.
Many children with autism have increased amounts of abnormal bacteria and yeast in their gastrointestinal tracts These same children have shown clinical improvements when this overgrowth phenomenon is treated with antibiotics, either by natural agents or pharmaceuticals.
HBOT has been shown to decrease abnormal bacteria/yeast in the gut.
However, as history has shown repeatedly throughout the years, convention is only convention until challenged, proven wrong, and then changed. A few of the multiple mechanisms demonstrating how HBOT may work for children with autism was originally and thoroughly researched over many months time by Dr. These mechanisms are shown below along with a couple others that have been suggested They include: The growth of new blood vessels has been shown to occur from soft chambers as well as from hard, and is a process that may continue to increase subsequent to discontinuing therapy for a period of time after oxygen loading.
Though it has been stated often on the internet boards that angioneogenesis does not occur unless pressures are 1.5 ATA or greater, the South American physician Dr.
At times it may actually be the sudden removal of higher than normal oxygen concentrations that the body has adapted to rather than the higher levels of oxygen itself that may stimulate angioneogenesis There are reports that the new vessel formation in the retinas of premature infants who were on high doses of oxygen was stimulated by the rapid removal of oxygen and not from the oxygen itself.A recent study documented impaired production and abnormal ratios of porphyrins in children with autism.
