Several scientific and medical studies link many of these suicides to physical brain damage suffered by combat vets. In this Spotlight on America, WKRC’s Chief Investigative Reporter Duane Pohlman examines an innovative medical treatment that heals injured brains and investigates why the military and the Veterans Administration (VA) have yet to approve it. Watch the Spotlight on America
The number of U.S. combat Veterans that will take will take their own lives, is over two dozen a day – everyday!! There is a treatment that is helping our brain injured Veterans with PTSD and it’s called Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT), and it has helped many people with brain injuries. It’s a simple procedure that helps to normalize blood flow and heal brain tissue.
Hyperbaric Healing Institute provides state-of-the-art hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a medical procedure that involves the patient being placed in a completely enclosed chamber in which the atmosphere is controlled and the patient is able to breathe pure 100 percent oxygen. This level exceeds atmospheric pressure. The hyperbaric process places oxygen in places within the body at a cellular level, and also where the circulation might be blocked. HBOT therapy is not painful and it is not an invasive procedure. HBOT therapy is used in conjunction with other medical treatments as part of a patient’s treatment plan.
