Israeli researchers have claimed that using hyperbaric oxygen therapy (PTSD) symptoms can be reduced. 

Many people in the world are suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It is a mental disorder in which a person reacts in the present to events that have happened or seen with them. In this disease, the patient is unable to forget any bad event and keeps experiencing it continuously. However, now a research in Israel has claimed to find an effective treatment for this disease.

HBOT can be treated

Any person suffers from this disease only when he is in deep shock. Whenever bad events happen suddenly in life and leave the person stunned, a person suffering from such a situation may be a victim of this disorder. At the same time, now Israeli researchers have claimed that using hyperbaric oxygen therapy can reduce the symptoms of PTSD. 

Significant improvement in disease symptoms

According to media reports, Israeli researchers were able to reduce the symptoms of PTSD in 35 IDF Combat Veterans (HBOT). After the trial, scientists and physicians from Tel Aviv University and Shamir Medical Center reported that all patients who were treated with this method had significant improvement in all types of symptoms.

4% of people in the world suffer from PTSD

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), about 4% of people worldwide suffer from PTSD. At the same time, if we talk about soldiers and police personnel, 30% of them are affected by this disease. According to the report of Tel Aviv University, this ‘hyperbaric drug’ can be defined in this way. Where the atmospheric pressure is higher than the sea level pressure and the air is rich in oxygen for treatment in the pressurized chamber.

2 groups created for treatment

According to Dr. Karen Donius-Barak, all the soldiers involved in the research were already using psychotropic drugs and psychotherapy. The people involved in the research were divided into 2 groups. One of these groups was treated with HBOT, while the other served as a control group.

The effect will last for many years after treatment

Doenius-Barak said functional and structural improvements were seen in both groups suffering from PTSD without untreated injuries. We believe that most patients will see improvement for years after the completion of treatment. Explain that PTSD is caused by a biological lesion in the brain tissue.
