HOW HBOT CAN HELP CANCER

Increased oxygenation: HBOT involves breathing pure oxygen in a pressurised chamber, leading to increased oxygen levels in the bloodstream. Tumors often have poor blood supply and are characterized by a low-oxygen (hypoxic) environment. HBOT can help overcome this by delivering high concentrations of oxygen to the tissues, potentially enhancing the effectiveness of radiation therapy and certain chemotherapy drugs that require oxygen to work optimally.

Improved wound healing: Cancer sufferers may experience delayed wound healing, particularly after surgical procedures or radiation therapy. HBOT promotes tissue regeneration and angiogenesis (formation of new blood vessels), which can aid in wound healing and reduce the risk of complications such as infections.

Reduction of radiation-induced side effects: Radiation therapy is a common treatment modality for cancer, but it can cause side effects such as tissue damage and radiation-induced fibrosis. HBOT has been shown to reduce these side effects by promoting tissue repair and reducing inflammation. It can help alleviate radiation-induced pain, promote healing, and improve the overall quality of life for individuals undergoing radiation therapy.

HOW RED LIGHT CAN HELP CANCER

Reducing chemotherapy-induced oral mucositis: Oral mucositis is a common side effect of chemotherapy and radiation therapy for cancer. It involves inflammation and ulceration of the mucous membranes in the mouth and throat. Some studies have explored the use of red light therapy to alleviate the symptoms of oral mucositis and promote healing of the affected tissues.

Enhancing wound healing: Cancer treatments, such as surgery and radiation therapy, can cause wounds that may be slow to heal. Red light therapy has been investigated as a potential adjunctive treatment to accelerate wound healing in cancer patients. It is thought to stimulate cellular activity and promote tissue repair.

Managing cancer-related skin reactions: Radiation therapy can cause skin reactions, such as radiation dermatitis, which can be uncomfortable and affect a patient's quality of life. Some studies have explored the use of red light therapy to alleviate radiation-induced skin reactions and improve the overall condition of the skin.
