- A series of videos and comments documenting one person’s journey with Lyme Disease and treatment with mild hyperbaric:
“…My mom sent me a message after she watched my video letting me know when she saw me running on the treadmill she began to cry. She is the only person who has seen our Lyme life behind closed doors as she stayed with us for a month the year my depression and symptoms were off the chart. She was here when the paramedics came and took me away after a seizure. She knows how huge this progress is for me and she was crying tears of joy for this transformation.
Yesterday I went to my dentist for another cleaning and checkup and my hygienist ask how my O2 treatments are coming along. As I told her about my newest video her eyes began to fill with tears of joy as she has watched me for the last 5 years go through this Lyme process. She was so happy for me and the progress I am making with mHBOT.
I went back and started looking at my journal writings from the first three month of diving and I have to say I was still having just ok days. Compared to now, almost 9 months of treating it’s a lot different. I’m only a third of the way to the 2 year treatment plan….I wonder what life will be like with 900 dives??…”

- An email excerpt from the mother of a 24 year old daughter with severe chronic Lyme Disease, who has been treating with mild hyperbaric (home chamber) and supplemental oxygen 1 hour daily for 9 months:
“…Hi ******, I wanted you to know that ****** has been so good this whole week that we are both amazed. She said today that it felt like the Lyme is gone. Now we know this is probably not true but it’s the best she has ever been. She is going out, swimming, running with friends, being active. She tries to be careful not to over do it but is doing well. ****** still takes naps and rests in between stuff like an older person but is doing so well. She came over this morning at 9 am to go to breakfast. We spent the whole day together shopping and watching a movie. She is now at a graduation ceremony. It’s surreal for sure. I am taking her to Rocky Point with my sister and her kids on Tuesday for 4 nights. I’m so excited to have a real vacation with my daughter. It’s like she is back. She doesn’t have the manic episodes anymore either…”
- An email excerpt from someone who had sustained a concussion/brain injury:
“I just want to let you know that having a respire at home has been great. I use it 6 days a week for an hour a day, and am still continuing to improve. I repeated neurological and cognitive testing a few weeks ago, and have been medically cleared to return to work. I’m thrilled!”
- An email received from a father regarding his daughter with chronic Epstein Barr and suspected Lyme Disease:
I hope this finds you in good health and spirits. It has been a long time since I gave you a report on ***** but it is time to fess up as best I can at the moment. After ***** bought the used chamber she started using it regularly and I’ve noticed a steady improvement in her overall health - Maybe she is not the model of perfect health yet but she is so much better that every time I see her or talk to her I want to lower my head and thank you and thank ***** for connecting ***** to you. There is no way to tell you how grateful I am for your efforts to educate us and help us get an effective healing therapy. You were right - ***** needed oxygen -she got a little of it w/ the H2O2 IVs from Dr. ***** but those had limited effectiveness that wore out in about a week…so thank you and best wishes -***** *****
- Post excerpts from a LymeNet thread discussing progress with mild hyperbaric treatment:
“Mdbq”, 11/22/15: “...Hi every one, time for an update! As of yesterday I have reached 600 hours of mHBOT! My health continues to improve, albeit very slowly and with many ups and downs.
Taking some notes every day over the past two years of hbot has really helped to show my improvement. Otherwise, you get up every day and think “My head still hurts, darn that knee is sore again, etc.” Overall, the intensity of my symptoms and number of symptoms have reduced. I am leading a very busy and full life.
Its interesting that the topic of emotions came up, as I have been in the THICK of working on emotional issues these past few months. I feel I was holding a lot of emotional trauma and energy in my body. I am working with some great practitioners (EFT, acupuncture, etc) and it has been extremely helpful.
I can tell you that the chamber can be a good, safe place to explore emotions, understand beliefs that are keeping you stuck, and have a good wailing cry!
Overall, mHBOT is my base treatment, along with the GAPS diet and now the energy/acupuncture work. I find the more I work on my gut and really nutrient dense eating, the more positive “bumps” I get. I am not on any herbs or abx specifically for Lyme, but I am using a little bit of Biocidin herbal tincture to try and help my gut out.
I feel I have severe dysbiosis after years of abuse and neglect from 4+ years of abx, birth control pills, stress, sugar, etc.
Its been a long road for me, but I am living and enjoying my life. Prior to finding hbot, I was desperate and had a lot of suicidal ideation because I couldn’t see a way out of this mess. And believe me, I spent a lot of money and saw the “best” doc for two years.
I may not be cured, but I am healing. My body still has more work to do and I plan on supporting it any way I can.
We’ve got quite the group diving now, and I look forward to seeing everyone’s progress. We are all going to improve and have many ups/downs at different rates. Try to listen to your body and support yourself.
Hugs to all you brave souls…”
“Jarjar”, 7/6/14: “…Thought it was time I give an update on my mhbot treatment. I started diving in early March and have no regrets whatsoever. My body just functions better with the treatment and it complements using my rife machine along with it. I had knocked down a lot of infections with my rife machine (gb4000 plus MOPA) prior to mhbot but still had lingering cognitive issues and fatigue. The mhbot treatments reduces those two symptoms. So I am very pleased with where I am considering the short period I have been diving. Very happy with the anti inflammatory response of the diving also…”
“Looking4hope”, 6/25/14: “…I’m going to list both my symptoms ‘Pre Mhbot’, and ‘Post Mhbot’ to date using a scale of “1-10″. “1″ will serve as no symptoms while “10″ will serve as severe symptoms.
‘Pre Mhbot’ ‘Post Mhbot’
Muscle Twitches-10 Muscle Twitches-6
Low Body Temp-10 Low Body Temp-1
Flu Like Feeling-10 Flu Like Feeling-1
Car Sickness-10 Car Sickness-1
Auditory Issues-10 Auditory Issues-2
Light Sensitivity-10 Light Sensitivity-1
As the above illustrates I have made marked improvement in certain areas. I hope this gives some of you with no hope ‘Hope’….”
MORE TO COME!
Stay tuned! I have been working on a “video library” by encouraging people to do short video recordings of themselves before they start mHBOT treatment, then in intervals thereafter to document their progress.
Once I have their permission, I will begin to post more videos…
