Family improves health of ailing children with hyperbaric chamber

By the time Scott and Gerri Williams brought their two young children to see Dr. Zahangir Khaled at his Methodist Medical Group Pediatric Gastroenterology practice in 2007, their lives were unraveling rapidly.

Khaled was the fourth GI doctor the family had seen.

"Austin and Sydney had been typical, non-complicated pregnancies. But when Austin was 1 year old, he started regressing," said Gerri Williams.

Oxidative Stress, Mitochondrial Hormesis, and Hyperbaric Therapy in Autism

Oxidative stress and mitochondrial dysfunction are fundamental problems in autism. Although known to be damaging, oxidative stress is also an important cellular signal for mitochondria to adapt (mitochondrial hormesis.) Hyperbaric therapy has been shown to be beneficial in the treatment of autism, but its exact mechanism is unclear. This talk examines the effects of hyperbaric therapy on mitochondria and its use in autism and proposes mitochondrial hormesis as a possible mechanism.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment for Neurological Conditions

New studies have reported improvements in some individuals who have certain neurological conditions by using Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment (HBOT). These conditions include cerebral palsy, chronic brain injury, autism, traumatic brain injury and fetal alcohol syndrome. The effects of HBOT on inflammation, oxidative stress, mitochondrial dysfunction and stem cells will also be discussed.

The Rationale for Using Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Children on the Autism Spectrum

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy has proven to be one of the major treatment modalities I use to help children on the autism spectrum move toward recovery. It is not a magic bullet, but an important adjunctive treatment to other therapies. Though scientific studies as to its effectiveness for children with autism are lacking or present conflicting data, if done consistently, its cumulative benefits can be appreciated, at least to some degree, by the majority of children who use this type of treatment.

Dr. Neubrander graduated from medical school in 1975, is board certified in Environmental Medicine, the medical director of two entities, scientific advisor to several organizations, and a well-known speaker nationally and internationally. Since the mid-90s he has treated 4000-5000 children on the autism spectrum. He is known as the Father of Methyl-B12 and the innovator of HBOT protocols used to treat children with autism and other disorders.
