Dr. Sherr believes that Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) -- the administration of 100% oxygen at greater than atmospheric pressure -- is one of the most powerful ways to decreasing inflammation, accelerate wound healing, and optimise both physical and mental performance.
He is one of the few HBOT providers in the USA that creates personalised treatment plans for patients that include cutting edge & dynamic HBOT protocols, adjunctive technologies, laboratory testing, and nutritional interventions.
Dr. Sherr is the Director of Integrative Hyperbaric Medicine and Health Optimization at Hyperbaric Medical Solutions, in addition to operating his own independent hyperbaric consultation practice and performing in-person consultations in the San Francisco Bay Area (where he lives). Dr. Sherr aims to create access and educate all those who may benefit from HBOT through telemedicine consulting, advocacy, and education practice worldwide.
I wanted to share this episode because hyperbaric was the therapy that I credit with being the major component in my mother, Isobel's rehabilitation after a devastating brain injury over two years ago.
Isobel was left with hardly any higher funcitoning, the brain damage was so severe she was unable to control her body in any meaningful fashion, had virtually no memory, no speech and was let in the . stage of a toddler at the age of 74.
But after three months in hospital and after months studying hyperbaric oxygen therapy and searching for somewhere to get her access to it I was lucky enough to find a chamber to use. Wha followed was in my opinion nothing short of miraculous. and now after thousands of hours of training, combined with supplemetation and diet changes and over 170 hyperbaric sessions later. Mum is completely normal again, can walk, read, write, do all her normal daily duties and is living a full life again, her doctor saying is a one in a million comeback story.
This is why I was so excited to get one of the worlds leading experts on this therapy to speak on my podcast and to explain much lcearer and better just what the mechanisms of HBOT are and the benefits, limitations and research going into this area of medicine.
So make sure you save this episode and share it as far and as wide as possible.
The fact that I was able to get access to one of the world's top experts in this fields is just amazing and I want to make sure that all who need to hear this information get access to it and to hypebaric oxygen therapy. I am also happy to have people contact me direct with questions.
