Case Study: How Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Reversed Memory Loss and Cognitive Decline in Elderly People


Reviving the Brain is possible with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. Read this case study to learn how Hyperbaric increased the cognitive functions and reversed the natural aging process for Robert.

Patient Age: 72

Gender: Male

Condition: Short and Long Term Memory Loss and Cognitive Decline 

Health History: Relatively healthy male with an active lifestyle. 

Robert, a 72 year old man, came to Oxynergy2 due to experiencing severe sudden memory loss, decreased cognitive functions, brain fog, and loss of coherent speech. 

Robert complained of the inability to use his short term memory, as well as his long term memory which progressively got worse with time and affected career. His wife also expressed frustration with Roberts lack of self awareness, personality changes, and angry outbursts. 

Custom Treatment Protocol: Robert was advised to follow the Oxynergy2 Cognitive Revive™ Protocol which includes 60 Sessions of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy at 120 minutes each with a Red Light Therapy on his head during each session. During each Hyperbaric Session, Robert was given custom memory games to play in order to stimulate and strengthen the parts of his brain responsible for cognitive functions. Robert followed this protocol by completing one session a day, 5 days a week. 

Robert’s protocol included air breaks added into each of his sessions. Air breaks happen when you are in the Hyperbaric Chamber and for a certain amount of time, the patient removes the oxygen mask while the pressure in the chamber changes. This enters the body into an induced forced hypoxia (HIF) which has been shown to multiply stem cells by up to 800%. This protocol is completely safe and tricks the body into thinking it needs to save itself, which then sends signals to the cells to multiply themselves, create stem cells, and go to the parts of the body that need it most. In Robert’s case, it was his brain that needed the extra care from his cells. New neurons were created and blood flow which wasn’t able to reach his brain before, was able to make it’s way there. This allowed the parts of the brain responsible for memory and attention to heal and become strong. In addition to the Hyperbaric Chamber, the red light therapy cap which was added to each session, dramatically reduced the inflammation in Robert’s brain, increased blood flow, and kept the new neurons alive and healthy.

45 sessions into Robert’s treatment, we added some physical exercise before each session to increase blood flow and increase lung capacity. Robert saw changes in his short term memory and lowered blood pressure. He noticed he was able to remember his passwords, codes, and events without writing them down. His energy levels dramatically improved and so did his sleep. Kathy expressed his personality, mood, and expressions were starting to come back to normal. Robert also added custom IV Vitamin Therapy after completing a blood test to test his vitamin levels. Robert was deficient in Vitamin B and D which were returned back to normal after completing a protocol of IV’s and Vitamin Injections.

Outcome: Once Robert finished his 60 session protocol, he regained his short term and long term memory. Memories from his life he thought he had forgotten, had come back.The different types of memory, which include working, episodic, semantic, and prospective were all regained. Roberts energy levels were up and his overall health was improved. 

Patient Testimonial: “I was shocked by the dramatic improvement in my cognitive abilities. Memory games which were very difficult for me in the beginning of my protocol, became easy and second hand nature very quickly. I started remembering things I could barely remember when I was younger. My wife and kids are surprised by my newfound energy and focus. I feel the best I’ve felt in over 20 years. I am pleased to say my memory loss has been reversed by Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.” 

Comments from Oxynergy2: Our fully customized hyperbaric protocols are made with signature and risk management analysis by well-known HBOT physicians. Memory Loss and Cognitive Decline is very common as we age. Unfortunately, many people are diagnosed with early onset dementia and other cognitive conditions relating to memory loss. At Oxynergy2, we focus on reversing aging with new integrative medicine using Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and preventative treatments.

The idea of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy in regards to helping increase cognitive function, is that the increased oxygen levels in the body increase blood flow to the brain which in turn heals and strengthens the parts of the brain which are responsible for memory, brain fog, concentration, mood, and bodily functions.
