Multiple Sclerosis

Health & well-being

Oxygen Treatment may improve language, eye-contact, social interaction, irritability, or hyperactivity.


Double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled studies are the gold standard of proof in the pharmaceutical drug testing model. An increasing number of such studies are demonstrating beyond a reasonable doubt that Oxygen Treatment, in certain circumstances, may alleviate many of the symptoms associated with MS by addressing the scleroses as they occur. As a consequence, there is mounting evidence that regular treatment with Oxygen Treatment may also significantly retard the progress of the condition

Case Study

I now have 20 years of follow-up on two of my first MS patients. One continues to have minimal symptoms. Another, whose condition was more advanced, had been told that she would be bedridden in 6 months if she did not take methotrexate, a treatment that is no longer recommended. She opted for HBOT and other alternative treatments, completed her Ph.D., had two children, and continues to practice as a speech therapist, although she now uses a wheelchair. Her initial prognosis for remaining time until incapacitation was off by a factor of about 40.

“Obviously any treatment capable of eradicating or providing long-term prevention of multiple sclerosis automatically will serve the additional purpose of allowing a current acute episode to subside as rapidly as nature will permit the lesion to repair itself.”
