The Truth About ADD-ADHD and Hyperbaric Oxygenation Treatment

ADD/ADHD or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is a common childhood medical condition. Your child may have it; your child may not. But how does one know? Here are some tips how.

Does your child act without thinking first, has trouble sitting still or often starts but does not finish things? Do such signs start to cause problems in school or at your home? If your answers are all “yes” then your child may have ADD/ADHD.

Though not all children who have restless behavior are related to ADD/ADHD, it is still better for us, as parents, to know more about ADD/ADHD.

The treatment usually last 30 minutes to 2 hours and parents can accompany their children inside the hyperbaric chamber. The treatment is non-invasive, non-toxic, and very much safe. Due to the pleasant characteristics of the treatment listed above, some parents have even reported that their children await their next schedule for the treatment.
