I did get a call from Harch hyperbaric. I am reluctant to reveal the name of the person I talked to her for one simple reason. She emphasized that in her busy life she found it hard to find time to make the phone call and would not speak to anyone else. I totally understand that, I find it hard personally sometimes to even answer e-mails or keep up to date on this newsgroup.
Having said that, the conversation was most interesting. The woman spoke to me has/had MS. Not wheelchair bound, but very symptomatic. Fatigue, legs like concrete, abnormal gait. An MRI showed she said a huge lesion on the top of her brain. But then she started actually working at the Harch hyperbaric center, in the multi-place chamber. So she got lots and lots of treatment when she accompanied children into the chamber. She gradually improved and is now totally symptom-free, and MRIs now show that lesion longer exists. And she said she was not the only case of recovery of MS, that the Harch center as had a number of people with MS totally get rid of their symptoms. But, it is not a quick fix. Treatment must be prolonged, and she still has to do occasionally tuneups, as do the other patients. Oxygen is a drug she says, and like other MS drugs, therapy must be done on a continued basis. And as an interesting side note, she also emphasized that one had to treat heavy metal toxicity. She herself has been taking Heavy Metal Detox for some time, she tested high in aluminum and lead. She occasionally does IVs of glutathione, and I was glad to be able to tell her about nebulizing glutathione! She found that fascinating and was quite excited about that option.
Frankly, I got quite depressed after talking to her, because she is dancing and horseback riding etc. and I thought I have been living in an area for the last seven years that has a hyperbaric center within reasonable distance and I could've been doing this therapy for the last seven years and maybe I would not be this crippled.
As far as the home chambers, she was very ambivalent. For one, she says they cannot supply the 100% pharmaceutical grade oxygen that people get in clinics. They cannot go down to the deeper pressures. Then again, she says there is a dentist with MS in New Orleans that uses a home chamber and says it is helpful, but he also was treated at the center and brought back to optimal health before he started to use it. She has no idea whether the home chambers could restore one's neurological damage as there have been absolutely no scientific studies using them. Her comment was that if one could not access a hyperbaric center, they might be better than nothing at all, but she could not give me any feedback on their effectiveness. So that part was disappointing, and I will have to talk to Dr. Lyn tomorrow night because she promised to do some research for me into home units. She said that the physiotherapist that is running the Seattle Healing Sanctuary is using a soft shell hyperbaric chamber, but it is very expensive, $22,000. It can go down to the deeper pressures, but again there is the question of the 100% oxygen that I will have to inquire about. Why the f***ck this is not better known, this treatment? Well, I guess it is better known in other countries, just not in our drug obsessed medical system.
This woman was so nice to talk to me, but I worry that people will start calling the Harch hyperbaric center, but I do not think this woman has the time to repeat her conversations ad infinitum. She phoned me very late at night because she works full-time, has children, and lectures and teaches, so her day is jampacked. But there you have it, there is more than one way it seems to successfully reverse the damage in MS. She warned me I have a long road ahead because I have been sitting in this wheelchair for seven years, but she also said regaining function is not impossible if you detox and get the proper hyperbaric treatment. I go for my third today, and am considering trying to do two a week instead of one, it's just that is expensive both in increased stress and money.
