H is for HBOT

What is HBOT you ask? Glad you asked! It stands for Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. It's something new in the autism community that parents are trying for their children. I am considering this for Ivy. We could buy our own chamber for about $15,000. I am not sure where I could come up with that kind of money, but where there is a will, there is a way, right?

I am going to include this YouTube video showing what HBOT is and how it works for kids with autism. Very interesting indeed.

We are new to the industry and are offering great chambers at 1/2 the price. We have our "Dive" chamber which is 28" in diameter and 7 feet long. It is very bright and airy with plenty of room. Please visit our site at Hyperbaric-dives.com. The site is under construction so this particular chamber may not be pictured yet. The Dive is identical to the Shallow Dive but at the full 1.3 ATA (4.4 PSI) We also have the Grand Dive which is 40" in diameter the larger sofy vchamber on the market.

Please call me if you have any questions. 612 325 8243 The chamber is manufactured in France by a company that has been making chamber for over 20 years.

I just came over from the moms blog.I read an article today about a club called The Sparrow Club.It is a club across the country that adopts hundreds of sparrows, from toddlers to teens. They do fund raisers to help children with problems. Just a thought.

sorry forgot to mention that the Sparrows Club is Children helping Children. Which makes it an even cooler club. I hope it all works out for you. This is their website.
