Lyme Disease

lymeLyme disease consists of spirochetes which are invasive bacteria. Spirochetes have a head on both ends, allowing them the ability to burrow into the organ or muscle and sporactically change direction causing further damage. They also have the ability to take on the protein covering of one's body, thereby disguising it from the body's defense mechanisms.  We have found that the spirochetes do not like 100% oxygen under a deep pressure.  The deep pressure forces the oxygen into the fluids of the body as well as the tissues of the muscles and organs.  It is even more effective when the spirochetes are going through their reproductive cycle and that is when we like to hit them hard. Spirochetes, on the other hand can survive and multiply in a slightly higher (than room air) oxygen content with a lower pressure.  Some will be killed, but the survivors will get used to the oxygen and thrive. They are facultative anaerobes: An organism that can live in the absence as well as in the presence of atmospheric oxygen.

When treating Lyme disease in a hyperbaric chamber with 100% oxygen at a deeper ATA it is recommended that you are diligent with your treatments and make the commitment to at least be able to catch the spirochetes during at least two of the cycles and, what was not destroyed during the first will hopefully be killed during the second cycle.
