What is it?

Oxygen therapy refers to the administration of supplemental oxygen. It is an entirely natural way of aiding in the alleviation of certain conditions and serves as a natural anti-inflammatory.

How does it work?

The atmospheric content of oxygen within room air is only 21%. Although this amount is adequate for healthy individuals, those with certain conditions can benefit from an increased oxygen fraction in the air they breathe.

Breathing in 100% (pure) oxygen under increased pressure allows extra oxygen to be taken up by the bloodstream and absorbed at a far greater rate. This extra oxygen can help where healing is slowed down by infection or where blood supply is limited by damage to the tissues.
