Cancer & Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatments

(back to Diagnosis page)

Every person has cancer cells in the body. These cancer cells do not show up in the standard tests until they have multiplied to a few billion. When doctors tell cancer patients that there are no more cancer cells in their bodies after treatment, it just means the tests are unable to detect the cancer cells because they have not reached the detectable size.

Cancer cells cannot thrive in an oxygenated environment. Exercising daily and deep breathing help to get more oxygen down to the cellular level. Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy is another crucial means employed to destroy cancer cells.
