Hyperbaric Oxygen for Hypotonic Cerebral Palsy
Things mom and dad have noticed during Eli’s first series of 40 HBOT treatments
- He is starting to eat food
- Improvements in his Temperament and Sleep Patterns
- Stood for 17 seconds by himself
- Getting a walker because his legs now have reflex to walk
Will just completed 38 Hyperbaric Oxygen treatments and a 3-week Intensive Physical Therapy session and Hyperbaric Healing Institute. We miss him already!
Cerebral folate deficiency (CFD) can be defined as any neurological syndrome associated with low cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) 5-methyltetrahydrofolate (5MTHF), the active folate metabolite, in the presence of normal folate metabolism outside the nervous system. CFD could result from either disturbed folate transport or from increased folate turnover within the central nervous system (CNS). We report on a novel neurometabolic syndrome in 20 children, which we term ‘idiopathic CFD’. Typical features became manifest from the age of 4 months, starting with marked unrest, irritability, and sleep disturbances followed by psychomotor retardation, cerebellar ataxia, spastic paraplegia, and dyskinesia; epilepsy developed in about one third of the children. Most children showed deceleration ofhead growth from the age of 4 to 6 months.
Hyperbaric Healing Institute provides state-of-the-art hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a medical procedure that involves the patient being placed in a completely enclosed chamber in which the atmosphere is controlled and the patient is able to breathe pure 100 percent oxygen. This level exceeds atmospheric pressure. The hyperbaric process places oxygen in places within the body at a cellular level, and also where the circulation might be blocked. HBOT therapy is not painful and it is not an invasive procedure. HBOT therapy is used in conjunction with other medical treatments as part of a patient’s treatment plan. Learn More
