Sharmyn B. wrote to tell me how her daughter’s entire life was dramatically improved by HBOT. Yet, since the FDA wasn’t on board, she had to foot the entire expense out-of-pocket.
Here’s what she wrote:
I think we all should take a page out of Sharmyn’s book, which is to say that each one of us needs to be our own best advocate for our health (and that of our loved ones).
When I said as much in a comment back to Sharmyn on the same thread, she gave some even better advice:
“I would implore anyone to do their research as it was advised by the head of neurology that we not do this. He and his colleagues were shocked that she was able to get out of her wheelchair and start walking. (I just brought the wheelchair to the appointment for the effect. She had not been using it for months.)”
The fact that HBOT isn’t widely available says nothing about its utility as a healing therapy. In fact, for some people, it is lifesaving. Unfortunately, HBOT’s limited use in conventional medicine also makes access a problem for many, but that doesn’t mean you should take “no” for an answer.
Now it’s your turn: Have you ever paid out of pocket for an unconventional treatment that did you a world of good?
