How to Biohack your Hyperbaric Oxygen Session

How To Biohack Your Hyperbaric Oxygen Session

There is a new way to turbocharge your Hyperbaric Oxygen sessions! Hyperbaric Oxygen has long been hailed as one of the best ways to boost your brain power and get you feeling more like yourself after a period of illness or injury.  But what if you could take things a step further?  What if you could take advantage of the latest biohacking tricks to ensure that Hyperbaric Oxygen was maximally effective for you?

In this article, we'll dive into how to upgrade your Hyperbaric Oxygen session with the latest biohacking tricks.

First, let's start with some background information on Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy.  Hyperbaric Oxygen has been used since the 1950s, and it is one of the most effective treatments for wounds and infections that are too deep or severe for antibiotics or other medical treatments to help. Hyperbaric Oxygen involves breathing pure oxygen through a mask while in a pressurised chamber. The pressure increases the amount of oxygen available in your blood, which helps your body heal itself.  Hyperbaric Oxygen is a painless, non-invasive and systemic procedure.  Here at Helen Taylor Aesthetics, we say that Nature prescribes Hyperbaric Oxygen!

If you want to get the most out of your Hyperbaric Oxygen session, there's one thing you should consider doing: taking a NO boosting supplement! NO is a gas that can be produced by the body naturally, and it helps mediate many different biological functions. By increasing your intake of NO in a supplement before your HBO session, you may be able to increase the already massive release of endogenous stem cells HBO mediates. This can happen because NO helps regulate the expression of genes that control cell proliferation, differentiation and apoptosis.

BIOHACKING

Hyperbaric Oxygen has already been clinically proven to trigger stem progenitor cell mobilisation from the bone marrow via the release of the stem cell active cytokine, cKit ligand (stem cell factor). So, by stacking up on a NO-boosting supplement beforehand, your body will have the perfect environment for stem cell release. Stem cells are the building blocks of all repair and healing within the body, so greater stem cell release means greater regeneration and rehabilitation.

Furthermore, if you're the type of person who is into breathwork, you can try using breathing patterns such as Wim Hof or SOMA breathwork before your Hyperbaric Oxygen session. SOMA breathing is a technique that uses slow, deep breaths and pauses between breaths to help oxygenate the body; Wim Hof works similarly. These types of breathing exercises are an excellent way to connect your body-mind-soul complex on all levels of consciousness.  The authors of these techniques are highly sought after.

Here's why:

Hyperbaric Oxygen chambers are designed to help your body heal by flooding your blood with oxygen. When you breathe deeply, you can take in more oxygen, which helps increase the efficiency of this process.
It's important to remember that these breathing patterns are not part of the actual HBO process, but they can help prepare your body and mind for what's coming next. By performing a deep breathwork session before your HBOT, you can deeply connect with your body prior, and prime your mind. As simple as it sounds, you can also ensure that you are in an optimal range for your vitamins and minerals before your Hyperbaric Oxygen session.

Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy is indeed a great way to boost your overall health and feel amazing, but it's also true that if you aren't taking care of yourself before your session, then you won't get the most out of it.
In order to benefit from HBO, you need to be in a state of health where your body can take advantage of all the benefits of oxygen.

One of the fundamental mechanisms of action regarding Hyperbaric Oxygen is that the megadose of concentrated oxygen acts as a direct fuel source for the mitochondria. Our mitochondria are the powerhouses of our cells, responsible for creating the energy (adenosine triphosphate) that keeps us going. When this energy production process is interrupted or slowed down due to illness or age, it can lead to a whole host of other health issues. In fact, when someone has all their vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and nutrients, the efficacy of HBO to create energy via the mitochondria and oxidative phosphorylation chain is harnessed to the best of its ability.

When you're not getting enough vitamins and minerals in your diet or through supplementation, your body must work harder to produce energy with less fuel. This causes an increase in oxidative stress as well as an increase in inflammation in your body.

If you want to get the greatest benefits from your HBOT sessions, it's worth investing in a few additional techniques. Biohacking isn't for everyone, but if you're serious about maximising your healing sessions in the Hyperbaric Oxygen chamber, there are plenty of ways that you can do that. Just remember to listen to your body, and don't push yourself too hard.

Combined with a workout regimen and diet which is optimised for maximum healing and growth, the results of your HBOT could be truly profound. Hopefully, that's enough information to get you started. Ultimately, whether you are combining Hyperbaric Oxygen with other supplements or not, taking a Hyperbaric Oxygen session can be a very positive step toward better health and performance.
