Ep 22 Healing Your Body Using Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy - With Dr Scott Sherr

Sep 14, 2018

Oxygen is our #1 life fuel. It's our #1 cell fuel so it is therefore not so surprising how effective hyperbaric oxygen therapy is in healing the body of just about every chronic health challenge or symptom. Dr Scott Sherr is an Internal Medicine Doctor and what he shares here is quite incredible. We discuss healing cancer, brain tumours, brain injuries, other illnesses, and also Epigenetics, CBD oil, and much more.


  1.    Introduction to Dr. Scott, an internal medicine doctor who specializes in hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
    2.    Dr. Scott's background in alternative health, his experience with chiropractic practice, and his decision to pursue a medical degree to bridge the gap between conventional and alternative health practices.
    3.    Dr. Scott's epiphany in a trauma center in Baltimore, where he witnessed the healing effects of hyperbaric oxygen therapy on patients with flesh-eating bacteria, necrotizing fasciitis, and carbon monoxide poisoning.
    4.    Dr. Scott's interest in hyperbaric oxygen therapy and his research on its potential to treat various conditions and injuries.
    5.    How hyperbaric oxygen therapy works, its simplicity, and its combination of increased atmospheric pressure and oxygen.
    6.    The effectiveness of hyperbaric oxygen therapy in cancer treatment.
    7.    Dr. Scott's personal experience with hyperbaric oxygen therapy and how it helped him recover from a severe case of COVID-19.
    8.    The importance of finding a reputable hyperbaric oxygen therapy center and the potential risks associated with its improper use.
    9.    The future of hyperbaric oxygen therapy and its potential to revolutionize the medical field.
    10.    Neil Cannon and Dr Scott Sherr discuss the impact of epigenetics on health and disease.
    11.    Epigenetics refers to changes in gene expression that are influenced by environmental factors such as diet, stress, and lifestyle.
    12.    Epigenetic changes can be transgenerational, meaning they can be passed down from one generation to the next.
    13.    Lifestyle and environmental factors can modulate epigenetic changes and influence the expression of genes.
    14.    Hyperbaric therapy is an epigenetic modulator that can improve the body's ability to utilize oxygen and upregulate genes responsible for growth and decreasing inflammation.
    15.    Hyperbaric therapy can also reverse hypoxia, decrease inflammation, decrease swelling, and fight bacteria and infection.
    16.    The power of hyperbaric therapy lies in its ability to epigenetically change DNA on the cellular level and improve real-time clinical conditions.
    17.    Neil Cannon and Dr Scott Sherr discuss the potential of hyperbaric therapy for patients with acute injuries or conditions such as stroke, traumatic brain injuries, and Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy.
    18.    Dr. Scott Sherr talks about the benefits of hyperbaric therapy for traumatic brain injury, stroke, cancer, and post-surgery healing.
    19.    Hyperbaric therapy can synergize with almost any cancer therapy, delivering more chemotherapeutic drugs to the tumor and helping to kill more cancer cells.
    20.    Some of the strategies being explored include IV vitamin C, CBD, and DCA, in addition to the ketogenic diet.
    21.    Reviews have shown that hyperbaric therapy does not cause cancer to grow, and may even have a regressive effect on certain cancers.
    22.    Epigenetic changes take time and require a protocol of therapy, usually involving 20-40 treatments for optimal results.
    23.    Acute needs for oxygen stimulation can be addressed with 1-3 treatments.
    24.    Chronic issues take longer to address, as the therapy not only reoxygenates but also rebuilds healthy tissue scaffolding.
    25.    Health Optimization Medicine focuses on balancing and optimizing the body at the core, foundational level.
    26.    Dr. Ted Archer COSO, founder of Health Optimization Medicine, was able to whittle down the core foundation that all of us need without including genomics.
    27.    The core foundation of Health Optimization Medicine is about working on gut health, hormonal health, and the foods you eat to reduce inflammation at the cellular level.
    28.    Health Optimization Medicine takes 80% of the benefits in 20% of the typical functional medicine testing, making the job of integrative doctors, functional medicine doctors, or even conventional doctors easier to have more powerful results.
    29.    The goal of Health Optimization Medicine is to make someone resilient, have better energy, and return to their optimal state, which is somewhere between 21-34 years of age, when they were at their procreating capacity, maximum fighting strength, and most resilient.
    30.    Health Optimization Medicine uses tests for gut, hormones, cellular energy, and food sensitivities to create normals that are within the range of someone at their max capacity for resilience, energy, and overall vitality.
    31.    Mitochondria are the batteries of the cell, which give cells energy and power to work.
    32.    ATP is the currency of energy in our body, which requires healthy mitochondria to be made efficiently in the quantities that you need.
    33.    If you don't have healthy mitochondria, you don't make ATP efficiently and don't make them in the quantities that you need, causing your body to start degenerating over time.
