Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is a treatment done in a pressurized chamber where the air pressure is raised to 4.2psi or1.3 ATA higher than normal air pressure and an oxygen mask flowing 95% oxygen. In this pressurized environment, your lungs can breathe in up to three times more oxygen than what would be possible breathing pure oxygen at normal air pressure. Your blood then carries the oxygen to your body’s tissue stimulating stem cells and growth factors, which are the building blocks of the natural healing process.
Hyperbaric therapy is prescribed by specialists in vascular medicine, radiology, reconstructive surgery, oncology and other specialties to treat a growing number of medical conditions.
Prepare the body for surgery and heal quicker after surgery.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is used to treat various ailments from common everyday aches and pains from athletics and aging, to serious health conditions and has been attributed to even waking upcoma patients! Discover the healing power of oxygen. Book your appointment today at Fresh Start Hyperbaric in Edgewood, Washington.
Who needs to worry about free radicals and oxidative stress?
Everyone - there's no avoiding it. Free radicals damage your cells each day. Damaged cells lead to aging and poor health.
So if you want to strengthen your immune system, increase your vitality, and slow the aging process, you'll want to understand how excess free radicals and oxidative stress can harm your body.
Every cell needs to convert oxygen and glucose into energy. This ongoing process called cell metabolism is essential for all cells. Metabolism produces two kinds of highly reactive oxygen radicals known as ROS. For simplicity, you can think of one ROS as bad and the other, good.
“Bad ROS” are free radicals that damage your cells, whereas “good ROS” emit the signal that initiates cell repair.
Unfortunately, the damage always outpaces the repair. Antioxidants help prevent damage by neutralizing ROS but they can do nothing to repair cells.
This is where NanoVi™ can help. By producing precisely the same signal as the "good ROS", NanoVi™ augments your body's natural repair mechanisms.

Oxidative stress reflects an imbalance between the systemic manifestation of reactive oxygen species and a biological system's ability to readily detoxify the reactive intermediates or to repair the resulting damage. Disturbances in the normal redox state of cells can cause toxic effects through the production of peroxides and free radicals that damage all components of the cell, including proteins, lipids, and DNA. Oxidative stress from oxidative metabolism causes base damage, as well as strand breaks in DNA. Base damage is mostly indirect and caused by reactive oxygen species (ROS) generated, e.g. O2− (superoxide radical), OH (hydroxyl radical) and H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide). Further, some reactive oxidative species act as cellular messengers in redox signaling. Thus, oxidative stress can cause disruptions in normal mechanisms of cellular signaling.
In humans, oxidative stress is thought to be involved in the development of Asperger syndrome, ADHD, cancer, Parkinson's disease, Lafora disease, Alzheimer's disease, atherosclerosis, heart failure, myocardial infarction, fragile X syndrome, Sickle Cell Disease, lichen planus, vitiligo, autism, infection, Chronic fatigue syndrome, and Depression. However, reactive oxygen species can be beneficial, as they are used by the immune system as a way to attack and kill pathogens. Short-term oxidative stress may also be important in prevention of aging by induction of a process named mitohormesis.
