Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Autism
Julian Whitaker, MD
The rising prevalence of autism in America is alarming, to say the least. Forty years ago, autism affected 1 in 10,000—today it’s 1 in 150. I believe that the many vaccinations foisted upon our children are largely to blame. Regardless of the underlying cause, recent research reveals that hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) offers new hope for the behavioral, social, language, and emotional problems these children and their families face.
Study findings presented at a meeting of the US Autism and Asperger Association revealed that children with autism who were treated with 40 one-hour sessions of HBOT had marked improvements in cognitive awareness, speech, motivation, communication, and overall health. This has certainly been our experience with the scores of kids who have received HBOT at the Whitaker Wellness Hyperbaric Center. If you are dealing with this condition, I strongly recommend that you look into HBOT.
