The use of radiation in medicine especially when it comes to the treatment of cancer is the use of radiation rays which include x-rays and gamma –rays to act on the body. This kills of cancerous cells or damages them in such a way as to reduce the spread of the cancer in the body. Nevertheless, most of the time radiation can be have its benefits and also have its disadvantages. Irrespective of its benefits in terms of destroying cancerous growths, it can also have its side effects, as a result is mostly used only when it must be tried. Some of its side effects include inflammation and also the destroying of cells that are not infected. hbot helps improves it effectiveness.
Today, the use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy alongside radiation has become a well effective means to defeat cancer. While radiation might sometimes have its side effects, the hyperbaric therapy can help repair and reduce the effect of the radiation. In the case where tissues are inflamed, the flow of oxygen also helps to repair these tissues and bring them back to normal again. This helps to get the healing process on a faster track, while it also help to build up body organs to come back to normal and build up its damages. The hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a supports the radiation and increases its effectiveness.
The high flow of oxygen which is as a result of the hyperbaric oxygen therapy also results in the regeneration and proliferation of blood vessels in the body. This in turn facilitates the repair of body tissue and organs as it carries oxygenated blood quickly to those parts of the body. Therefore allowing for the repair of organs and cells that might have being damaged by radiation. Overly, the healing process of the organs is hastened and the patient might begin to see major improvements in the body.
