Hyperbaric oxygen therapy, or HBOT, has been used for centuries to treat a wide range of conditions, from decompression sickness to nervous system disorders.1 Despite its powerful benefits, HBOT is still relatively unknown.
Your immune system is indispensable. It acts as your main line of defense, protecting you from harmful bacteria, viruses, and other invaders that would otherwise wreak havoc on your body.

Autoimmune and neurodegenerative diseases are some of the most frustrating and frightening chronic illnesses for patients and their families and they’re both on the rise.

Systems Medicine pioneer David Haase, MD integrates science, philosophy, data, and inspiring experiences from his innovative medical practice to reveal new possibilities for creating health, optimizing human performance, and reversing dementia.
