The immune system is mostly composed of white blood cells (WBC’s). These cells have a variety of essential roles inside the body, one of which is to fight infections. They do this through an oxygen-dependent system called phagocytosis. HBOT has been shown to enhance phagocytosis, helping the body kill and ward-off infections. High enough oxygen dosages, as typically produced in high-pressure oxygen chambers, can effectively repair the cells, and kill particularly harmful bacteria that cannot live in the presence of oxygen. Additionally, HBOT boosts endogenous antioxidant and stem cell production both enhancing the immune system.
Pulsed Electro Magnetic Field (PEMF) with its ability to improve blood flow by addressing the Rouleaux effect (the clumping together of our blood cells) also positively effects our white blood cells making them bigger and more mobile.
