According to the CDC, about 150 Americans die from traumatic brain injury (TBI)-related injuries each day, and over 3.5 million citizens every year receive brain injuries from falls, sports, accidents, assaults, and other insults to the brain.Read more
Following their conversation earlier this month, U.S. Senator Kevin Cramer (R-ND) pressed Denis McDonough, President Joe Biden’s nominee to be the Secretary of Veterans’ Affairs (VA), during his Senate VA Committee confirmation hearing today on the issue of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) and support for it in the VA Department. Senator Cramer invited Mr. McDonough to Fargo to visit the HBOT clinic there.Read more
Terlup believes the Purdue HBOT research is the most comprehensive study underway, but he needs veterans to finish the project. “But in terms of what we are trying to do and where we are coming from, we are right where we were about a year ago. We got our approval for using our labs with COVID safety precautions in place for the MRI facility. Our HBOT facility down in Clark is good to go. Everything looks good.”Read more
Thank you from all of us across the US and even around the world. We are winning. Our advances continue to build recognition, support, science, and successes.
The TreatNOW Coalition will continue to work toward its Mission and Vision: TreatNOW Mission: Stop suicides by identifying and treating veterans and others suffering from TBI/PTSD/Concussion.
TreatNOW Goal: Ensure that over 1.5 million brain injured veterans and active duty service members, along with millions of citizens, get insured access to Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and other proven alternative medical treatments for their Invisible Wounds.Read more
There is growing evidence from clinical studies that HBOT, utilized in a repeated daily sessions protocol, has neurotherapeutic effects which can improve cognitive functions in post-stroke, traumatic brain injury and anoxic brain damaged patients even years after the acute insult [15–19].Read more

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy can help heal brain wounds: TBI/PTSD/Concussion. Peer-reviewed positive scientific and clinical evidence in over 7500 cases demonstrates that HBOT helps heal wounded brains and returns patients to a life denied them by DOD/VA/Army that will not talk about, or even use or pay for HBOT treatment for TBI/PTSD/PCS/Concussion. Successful treatment with HBOT [40 one-hour sessions] virtually eliminates suicidal ideation, an effective “suicide prevention” method. Patients also reduce their drug intake to nearly zero and experience 50% reduction in pain and time to withdrawal. The history of HBOT for TBI is littered with bad science, but evidence-based and clinical medicine data show the safety, efficacy and cost effectiveness of HBOT as a standard of care that should be put on-label and insured.Read more
Informed Consent is a necessity for patients with a brain injury because it is vitally important that the health care provider inform the patient of the availability of proven, alternative therapies like Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) to treat brain injuries.Read more
