NEW YORK, June 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Patients Medical, a leading integrative and holistic medical center in New York City, is premiering the new 2.0 ATA Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy chamber in July – the only soft chamber of its kind available in a private office in Manhattan. Daniel Silverstein, MD, specializing in Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) protocols, explains how the treatment works and its many health benefits.

"Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is a non-invasive therapy that uses 100% oxygen under atmospheric pressure in a controlled environment. HBOT is one of the most efficient methods of delivering oxygen to cells throughout the body," says Dr. Silverstein. "It jumpstarts the body's natural healing by directly stimulating your cells to grow and regenerate."

"In order to heal, your body needs oxygen," Dr. Silverstein explains. "Especially for patients suffering from diabetic ulcers, burns, serious wounds, crush injuries, severe blood loss and anemia, or those who have had carbon monoxide poisoning or severe smoke inhalation, bathing your body in pure oxygen will help you recover faster. Oxygen is essential for life and the hyperbaric oxygen chamber is the extra stimulus some patients need to make a faster and more complete recovery."

The new 2.0 ATA HBOT chamber allows patients to experience 80% more oxygen at up to double the atmospheric pressure we feel at sea level. This treatment not only enhances the body's natural ability to heal and combat infection, but it is also useful in supporting patients who are pre- or post- operative.

"HBOT can help regenerate damaged tissue and reverse injuries caused by radiation therapy," Dr. Silverstein says. "More studies are currently underway to further determine the effects of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy on other medical conditions and diseases." Recent promising studies include HBOT's affects on autism, cancer, stroke, heart disease, Lyme disease and many others.

Daniel Silverstein, MD is a New York State licensed and board-certified internal medicine physician who has practiced in hospitals and private clinics treating patients with a wide variety of concerns – from arthritis and chronic fatigue to hormonal imbalance and weight loss. His preference for holistic treatment led to his training in complementary approaches through the University of Arizona under the auspices of Dr. Andrew Weil, The Tahoma Clinic in Seattle, the American College for Advancement in Medicine, and the Institute for Functional Medicine.
