Hi. My name is Maude Feil and I have owned a home hyperbaric chamber for almost a year now. I moved to Los Angeles from Aspen, Colorado back in 1980, but frequently go back to ski, hike and to see old friends. Usually when I start hiking, I experience extreme breathlessness, and at some point—at 10,500 feet or so—a sadness comes over me. Also, the light and mountains take on a twinkly quality—not uncomfortable, just a bit otherworldly.
This past summer after using the chamber for at least 1 month (for numerous treatments), I took it to friends in Aspen. The day after I arrived I went hiking up to Lost Man, at the top of Independence Pass, which is at 11,000 feet. I laughed all the way. There was a little stopping for air, NO twinkly lights, NO sadness—just the clarity of the beautiful blue sky and mountains. It was glorious. Then, on the way back down, no need for a nap, plenty of energy for going out to dinner, and then at night fast to SLEEP. I used to have to take Excedrin PM™ to sleep because of the altitude. No more.
The next morning I took another hike, which was longer than usual, and I felt great. My being oxygenated at altitude was amazing, and I so want to share this with people going skiing and hiking who get sick. At sea level, I feel calmer, and I can breathe deeper. The friends I have referred to hyperbarics can run farther, and feel more energy.
Anyway I just thought I’d share my experience with you.
The following children have been to our clinic for cancer protocols. All these children were treated with hyperbaric therapy along with two cycle Insulin Potentiation Therapy (IPT) with low and high dose chemotherapy, hyperthermia, and nutritional support with very good results.
Case I: Judah D. (age 2) Leukemia: After intense chemotherapy for Leukemia, Judah came to us with a compromised immune system. He was not in total remission. The family wanted us to try Complementary Alternative Medicine (CAM). He was lethargic and void of energy. The clinical protocol included hyperbaric therapy, low dose chemo with IPT, high dose vitamin C and nutritional intravenous therapy.
Judah’s mother accompanied him inside the hyperbaric chamber, and they both thoroughly enjoyed the sessions. Over the three weeks he was in our clinic, Judah showed marked improvement, especially where energy was concerned. His leukemia responded to the therapy.
Case II: Hannah G. (age 5) Ependymoma of the brain stem: This young girl arrived at our clinic having been pronounced terminal. The doctors in California had given her two weeks to live due to the advanced condition of her brain stem ependymoma.
She suffered partial left side paralysis with drooping eye lids and was barely able to walk. Due to the delicate nature of this child and her fear of needles, we encouraged her parents to have a port installed.
Until then, we utilized hyperbaric therapy almost exclusively. She improved significantly in the two weeks she was at the clinic. Her paralysis and drooping of the eyelid went away. She was able to walk and paint pictures.
We treated her with two cycle IPT, nutrition, and hyperbaric therapy. This girl continues to do well and is still without paralysis six months after she has left the clinic.
Case III: Taryn W. (age 12) Kidney cancer (Wilm’s tumor) with metastasis to spine, liver and lungs: this patient was in much pain because of metastasis to her spine. Her condition was grave.
Her main wish was to recover enough to be able to travel to California to ride horses on the beach, a trip that was arranged by Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Daily hyperbaric therapy along with two cycle IPT, hyperthermia and nutritional therapy for two weeks had her nearly pain free. She went to California for her “Wish” and then returned to the clinic for the rest of her therapy. We were able to extend her life with good quality.
Hyperbaric therapy is part of our treatment for all cancers and many chronic and degenerative diseases and chronic infections, such as Lyme disease—immaterial to the age of the patient.
There is growing evidence which shows that hyperbaric therapy helps the delivery of therapeutic agents close to the site of the disease, and that hyperbaric oxygen is toxic to the cancer cells.
