The Oxygen Revolution: Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy: The Groundbreaking New Treatment for Stroke, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Arthritis, Autism, Learning Disabilities and More by Paul Harch is a hardback book full of useful information – and it costs less than $20!
When Randy McCloy, Jr., the sole survivor of the Sago Mine disaster, finally walked out of the hospital to rejoin his family, it was in part due to the miracle of hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is based on an almost laughably simple idea: Oxygen can be used therapeutically for a wide range of conditions where tissues have been damaged by oxygen deprivation. Restore that oxygen, goes the logical thinking, and you can restore much of the lost function. It seems too good to be true, but Dr. Paul G. Harch’s research and clinical practice has shown that this noninvasive and painless treatment can help the tens of millions of Americans who suffer from a brain injury or disease, such as:
• Autism and other learning disabilities
• Cerebral palsy and other birth injuries
• Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, and other degenerative neurological diseases
• Emergency situations requiring resuscitation, such as cardiac arrest, carbon monoxide poisoning, or near drowning
It can also improve conditions in which inflammation is the culprit, such as arthritis and asthma; promote healing in infections, burns, and skin grafts, such as diabetic foot wounds; and slow the aging process.
For the millions of Americans suffering from these seemingly “hopeless” diseases, here finally is the handbook of hope. Inspiring and informative, The Oxygen Revolution is the definitive guide to the miracle of hyperbaric oxygen therapy, from a pioneer in the field.
I have not been able to use hyperbaric oxygen (read RBY’s own article on HOT) myself because I have a couple of ‘foreign objects’ in my head and the pressure of diving makes them hurt. I do much of my counselling in a hyperbaric oxygen centre and I’ve seen firsthand some of the miracles it brings about. I saves amputations, over and over. I have actually seen a blackened and gangrenous leg (from biabetes) destined to be amputated restored to health. Amazing. Certain. Physical. And used far more in Europe by mainstream medicine – here it’s used for just one or two applications (severe burns) but it seems that pharmaceutical companies are not keen for it to be used more?

–Julian Whitaker, M.D., founder of Whitaker Wellness Institute and editor of Health & Healing newsletter
“[T]his book is a brilliant, enjoyably readable, yet in-depth explanation of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT)…. The concepts in this book should be taught in every medical school and hospital and known in every household.”
–R.A. Neubauer, M.D., founder of the Ocean Hyperbaric Neurologic Center
“An authoritative, well-written book on a subject we all need to know more about.
Highly recommended for physicians and health care consumers alike.”
–Nathaniel Altman, author of The Oxygen Prescription
“Hyperbaric oxygen has been the Cinderella of modern medicine for several decades given that oxygen is not a patentable drug. Finally, thanks to the pioneering efforts of Dr. Harch, the man-on-the-street is becoming aware of this non-invasive therapy.”
–Kenneth P. Stoller, M.D., FAAP, President of the International Hyperbaric Medical Association
“The Oxygen Revolution is a fascinating book written by one of the great pioneers in the field of hyperbaric medicine. Dr. Harch shares his incredible knowledge and experience in a compelling book that is both comprehensive and accessible to the lay person. It opens tremendous horizons in the treatment of numerous conditions and will give true hope to millions of people with chronic diseases.”
