Jake went down to Dr. Paul Harch’s office in Morrero LA, for Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy (HBOT) in December '08. Jake was honorably discharged from the US Marine Corps due to a head injury. He received HBOT treatment, and was in, what we believe, the best care possible. We are still thankful for all of those that helped our son.
To date, Jake is now enrolled at a local vocational school in welding. Jake also managed to CLEP out of English, Reading and Math. Prior to HBOT treatment this would not have been possible for my son. He was unable to retain anything in his short-term memory. He was unemployable as well. Even working at a fast-food restaurant would have been impossible, because he’d have to remember orders, etc. My son was incapable of working prior to treatment. Though my son is not totally perfect, the improvements that we see in him from day to day leaves no doubt in our minds that Dr. Harch's Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy has given our son his life back. He is able to function, able to go to school, and able to take care of his needs.
HBOT treatment should be mandatory for all of our Soldiers and Marines returning from war whom have been subject to PTSD and/or TBI injuries. This treatment presented results that words just cannot express. The treatment has impacted our entire family because of the wonderful results we have witnessed. My son is now able to sleep through most nights. His nightmares have decreased, and his migraine headaches have also decreased.
