Living Laughing Loving Breathing HBO


No not the master mind behind broadcasting the Lword dear friends, but hyperbaric oxygen. (I mean who doesn’t love the Lword!)


Subject to controversy for years oxygen has a couple of hundred years of form regarding cancer. I could at this juncture talk about my beloved supplement Zell oxygen, Nobel prize winner Otto Warburg, or the benefits of exercise, but instead will just focus on hyperbaric oxygen.

HBO is based on administration of 100 % oxygen at higher than normal atmospheric pressure. HBO treatment enhances the amount of dissolved oxygen in the plasma, thereby increasing O2 tissue delivery independent of haemoglobin. The Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society has a list of approved indications for HBO therapy, including decompression sickness, severe carbon monoxide poisoning, nonhealing wounds, and late radiation injury.” *

For many years the jury was out as to whether HBO harmed or helped cancer cells and it was only recently that it was decided to be safe.

There is also considerable excitement over a study released in 2015. Researchers from the immunophysiology department at Northeastern University claimed that HBO could make a dramatic improvement in cancer treatment, based on their experimentation on my mice cousins. ** And it is true I see many people at the chamber who are using it as an adjunct to surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

For myself I just felt it would be a good thing and would help my body with the large irradiated tumour I carry on the outside of my body. I had ideally envisaged medical larva secreting cancer busting enzymes from the outside and cancer busting oxygen from the inside. But as readers of my previous posts know it was not to be. Luckily my wonderful kinesiologist ally and friend stepped up with all kinds of things to support my body during this time including the wonderfully named GUNA remedies. I am also waiting on some interesting dna tests which whilst not confirming my unusual for a guinea pig Roma Albanian roots will help me with the hormone balancing stuff.

I am minded just to post this as it is, with none of my usual asides and personal commentaries – and so it shall be.

Thank you for following this blog, dear friend and readers.

Love powa and peace
