Oxygen therapy and autism
Autism is a condition that belongs to a group of symptoms called withdrawal, i.e. avoiding contact with the outside world - with people and the environment.
Early diagnosis and implementation of appropriate therapeutic management can lead to an improvement in the functioning of a person with autism . However, autism stays with people for the rest of their lives, there is no way to "undo" this disorder or cure it completely. In some, as a result of therapy, the symptoms of autism become discreet and weakened.
More oxygen positively stimulates the child's brain, nourishing nerve cells and thereby stimulating specific parts of the brain to work.
Oxygen therapy in a normobaric chamber and the improvement of health in people with autism
Numerous clinical trials of oxygen therapy in children diagnosed with autism have found an improvement in patients' health. Concentration and cognition improve, eye contact improves, stress levels decrease and sleep quality improves.
Scientific evidence of the influence of a normobaric chamber on people with autism
Doctors who studied the effects of hyperbaria (so this also applies to normobaric chambers ) on children with autism showed that hyperbaric oxygen therapy improved the quality of life of its patients.
62 children up to 7 years old were placed in two separate hyperbaric chambers, where research conditions were completely different. The first group was treated for 40 hours with oxygen at a pressure 30% higher than atmospheric. The second group, in turn, was inhaling oxygen at a pressure 3% higher than atmospheric. After 40 hours of treatment, significant differences were noted between the first and second group children. As much as 30 percent subjects from the first group showed improvement in communication and eye contact. The level of self-control has also improved. Finally, 80% improved. children from the first and 38 percent from the second group.
