HBOT for Autism

Dr Harch, First to Treat Autism in 1996 w HBOT in Clinical Setting

Paul Harch, MD was one of the first physician in North America to treat a cerebral palsy child with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) and could very well have been the first to also treat an autistic child. This news story from New Orleans ABC Channel 26 documents Dr Harch’s patient who was treated in 1996. The pediatric patient medically improves from no eye contact and no walking--to walking and engaging and appropriate communication skills.

It has long been known that healing many areas of the body cannot take place without appropriate oxygen levels in the tissue.  Most illnesses and injuries occur, and often linger, at the cellular or tissue level.  In many cases, such as: circulatory problems; non-healing wounds; and strokes, adequate oxygen cannot reach the damaged area and the body's natural healing ability is unable to function properly.  Hyperbaric oxygen therapy provides this extra oxygen naturally and with minimal side effects.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy improves the quality of life of the patient in many areas when standard medicine is not working.  Many conditions such as stroke, cerebral palsy, head injuries, and chronic fatigue have responded favorably to HBOT.
