Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy can help with ADD/ADHD

Many who struggle with ADD and ADHD have found great results from using mild hyperbaric therapy. After just a few treatments, children and adults alike feel more able to focus, more able to communicate clearly and more at peace overall. College students seek treatments prior to a big exam, sometimes even to study inside the chamber.

Studies have already suggested that children who have ADD/ADHD have reduced regional cerebral blood flow. Studies also have shown that ADD/ADHD have been linked to environmental toxins that are known to aggravate the symptoms. And oxygen through HBOT will help in cleansing the body of these toxins.

HBOT with the use of oxygen will flush those toxins out and help cells and tissues to heal and regenerate form their harmful effects. HBOT will increase the availability of oxygen to the brain and enhance cognitive functioning. Brain scans have already proven this. There is a significant increase in brain function in patients who have undergone HBOT.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment is a natural and safe alternative to medications!
Did you know that the drugs used to treat ADD/ADHD are derived from the same family as cocaine? Although the cause of ADD/ADHD remains unknown, the foundation of conventional treatment of ADD/ADHD is medication. This usually includes stimulant medication such as Ritalin (methylphenidate), Dexedrine (dextroamphetamine), Desoxyn (methamphetamine) or Cylert (pemoline). When stimulants are not effective, children may be given tricyclic antidepressants. While these drugs may provide some short term benefits in reducing some of the symptoms associated with ADD/ADHD, they have harmful side effects. These effects include social withdrawal, decreased responsiveness to parents and other children, clinical depression, fatigue, loss of humor, increased compulsive behavior, appetite suppression, impaired growth, and the risk of addiction.

Our history


Our family found hyperbaric oxygen therapy in 2010 when we were looking for ways to help our ailing grandparents who were suffering from Alzheimer’s and dementia. We soon discovered the added benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy and the long list of conditions that could be treated. We used the hyperbaric chamber ourselves and found results with various ailments within our family and among our friends. My autistic son saw a breakthrough with communication. A friend with diabetes saw astounding results where he saw his legs turn from black and blue to pink in weeks. It was amazing to see results without any negative side effects. While there are cautions to hyperbaric oxygen therapy there are few side effects unlike the prescription drugs prescribed to treat these medical conditions. As a family, we decided to open Fresh Start Hyperbaric to bring the benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy closer to home. Now our friends and neighbors of Edgewood, Milton, Sumner and the surrounding community don’t have to travel to enjoy the benefits of mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy. The Fresh Start Hyperbaric clinic offers a place to come for mild hyperbaric treatments in a soft chamber. We use 95% oxygen and a pressure of 4.2 PSI. Fresh Start Hyperbaric is also a distributor for clients looking to purchase their own hyperbaric chamber equipment.
