The Early History of HBOT

The first chamber used to treat patients was constructed in 1662 by the British Physician Nathaniel Henshaw MD (1628–1673).

Nathaniel Henshaw MD first studied medicine at the University of Padua in 1649. He was entered for the physic course at Leyden University on 4 November 1653, proceeded MD there, and was admitted MD “ad eundem” at Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland in the summer term 1664. On 20 May 1663 Henshaw was elected Fellow of the Royal Society. He practised in Dublin, Ireland as a physician, but died in London, England in September 1673, and was buried on 13 September in Kensington Church in London.

After a large number of studies conducted since 1945 the effectiveness of HBOT treatments are now well documented and established.

Oxygen, Sugar and Cancer

“Cancer, above all other diseases, has countless secondary causes. But, even for cancer, there is only one prime cause.
Summarized in a few words, the prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar.”
Professor Otto H. Warburg 30 June 1966 in “The Prime Cause and Prevention of Cancer”

Professor Otto H. Warburg was during his lifetime ostracised by the "medical club" for his findings. Today the standard procedure to find cancer cells is to use radioactive sugar to find the cancer cells by Positron emission tomography scan, a procedure in which a small amount of radioactive glucose (sugar) is injected into a vein, and a scanner is used to make detailed, computerized pictures of areas inside the body where the glucose is used. Because cancer cells often use more glucose than normal cells, the pictures can be used to find cancer cells in the body.
