Today on The Holistic Dentistry Show’s last episode of 2023, join our fascinating conversation with Nicole Garrett, Certified Hyperbaric Technician (CHT), Safety Director, and founder of Under Pressure Hyperbarics and she and Dr. Sanda jump into the depths of hyperbaric therapy, the newly discovered key to longevity. Let’s begin!

Dive medic-turned-hyperbaric clinic founder Nicole Garrett is kicking it off with her journey from commercial dive school to discovering the incredible research about hyperbaric oxygen. Nicole shares hyperbaric oxygen’s uses and benefits, and we learn that hyperbaric is the only tool that can actually help our bodies decompress. Dr. Sanda is steering this conversation, as we move into questions around whether someone can overdose from hyperbaric oxygen, and the difference between hospital-grade and in-home hyperbaric oxygen units. 

As we continue along, Nicole shares an incredible list of hyperbaric therapy uses: claustrophobia, bone necrosis, bone infections (to name a few!) Plus, Nicole illustrates innovative results from hyperbaric EBOO treatments that adds Dr. Sanda’s favorite…ozone!...and the specific approach EBOO takes to aid bacterial infections. The conversation takes a slight detour as Dr. Sanda and Nicole learn that they’re not just in close proximity during the podcast — their offices are near each other, too! As Dr. Sanda and Nicole near their final destination, they (ad)venture into the do’s and don’ts of hyperbaric oxygen. It’s safe to say there’s much more on the horizon for this powerful healing modality! 

This episode isn't just about a decompressing tool; it’s a conversation about a holistic innovation that can transform the health and longevity of humans! How amazing is that!
