Product description

HOPE FOR MANY "HOPELESS" DISEASES, FROM ONE OF THE FOREMOST RESEARCHERS IN THE FIELD When Randy McCloy, Jr., the sole survivor of the Sago Mine disaster, finally walked out of the hospital to rejoin his family, it was in part due to the miracle of hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is based on an almost laughably simple idea: Oxygen can be used therapeutically for a wide range of conditions where tissues have been damaged by oxygen deprivation. Restore that oxygen, goes the logical thinking, and you can restore much of the lost function. It seems too good to be true, but Dr. Paul G. Harch's research and clinical practice has shown that this noninvasive and painless treatment can help the tens of millions of Americans who suffer from a brain injury or disease, such as: - Stroke - Autism and other learning disabilities - Cerebral palsy and other birth injuries - Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, multiple sclerosis, and other degenerative neurological diseases - Emergency situations requiring resuscitation, such as cardiac arrest, carbon monoxide poisoning, or near drowning It can also improve conditions in which inflammation is the culprit, such as arthritis and asthma; promote healing in infections, burns, and skin grafts, such as diabetic foot wounds; and slow the aging process. For the millions of Americans suffering from these seemingly "hopeless" diseases, here finally is the handbook of hope. Inspiring and informative, "The Oxygen Revolution "is the definitive guide to the miracle of hyperbaric oxygen therapy, from a pioneer in the field.

Review quote

"One of the most important and insightful medical books in 40 years. If you or your loved one have a neurological condition, you cannot afford to be without this book; it has the potential to restore your lost life." -Vance Trimble, Pulitzer Prize winner and author of "The Uncertain Miracle" "History has demonstrated the value, role, and contribution of medical mavericks like Dr. Harch and the need for more of them. This book serves as a valuable guide in delivering the hard science demanded but often overlooked by mainstream medicine in controversial treatment arenas [like hyperbaric oxygen therapy]. This book will change lives, lives that haven't been born yet." -Rick Rader, M.D., President of the American Academy of Developmental Medicine and Dentistry "Dr. Harch is a tireless researcher, brilliant clinician, and true pioneer in hyperbaricoxygen therapy. In this book, he offers compelling reasons for the widespread adoption and utilization of this remarkable, yet overlooked, therapy." -Julian Whitaker, M.D., founder of Whitaker Wellness Institute and editor of Health & Healing newsletter "[T]his book is a brilliant, enjoyably readable, yet in-depth explanation of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT).... The concepts in this book should be taught in every medical school and hospital and known in every household." -R.A. Neubauer, M.D., founder of the Ocean Hyperbaric Neurologic Center "An authoritative, well-written book on a subject we all need to know more about. Highly recommended for physicians and health care consumers alike." -Nathaniel Altman, author of "The Oxygen Prescription" "Hyperbaric oxygen has been the Cinderella of modern medicine forseveral decades given that oxygen is not a patentable drug. Finally, thanks to the pioneering efforts of Dr. Harch, the man-on-the-street is becoming aware of this non-invasive therapy." -Kenneth P. Stoller, M.D., FAAP, President of the International Hyperbaric Medical Association ""The Oxygen Revolution" is a fascinating book written by one of the great pioneers in the field of hyperbaric medicine. Dr. Harch shares his incredible knowledge and experience in a compelling book that is both comprehensive and accessible to the lay person. It opens tremendous horizons in the treatment of numerous conditions and will give true hope to millions of people with chronic diseases." -Pierre Marois, M.D., F.R.C.P., Ste-Justine University Hospital
