Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment (HBOT)
Team Veteran Foundation Wellness Clinics will provide a path towards total wellness for our Veterans and their families. The Arizona Legislature has approved Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment (HBOT) Program for Veterans with traumatic brain injuries (TBI) and selected PTSD conditions. They will be eligible to participate in hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) under a bill approved in the state House (Feb. 21), and by the Senate (Mar 26). After unanimous approval, the law was signed by the Governor on March 29, 2018. Arizona joins Texas, Oklahoma, Indiana and Kentucky in recognizing the efficacy of HBOT to treat TBI and PTSD. This facility will be open 7 days per week and will be open to the public to treat everyone with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) for over 60 different conditions. Here are the conditions.
The therapies at the Team Veteran Foundation Wellness Clinics will provide a solution to the suicide epidemic of our Veterans and the devastating effect of suicide on their families and our communities. A suicide is like no other death for the friends and family, the wound never heals. Team Veteran Foundation Wellness Clinics will provide a path towards total wellness for our Veterans and their families by providing a comprehensive body, mind and spirit experience. The Wellness Clinics will offer individualized programs, educational tools and support for a “take charge” approach for Veterans to regain their balance.
The focus of the Wellness Clinics will be the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) chambers, to first heal the brain injuries from the TBI to enhance the viability of other therapies like psychotherapy, chiropractic, physical therapy, acupuncture, massage therapy, and nutrition. Other therapies that can enhance keys to healthy living include yoga, meditation, relaxology, aromatherapy, equine therapy, service animals and guide dogs.
It is our goal that the Veteran and their family have a healing experience at no cost to the Veteran. Together we could dramatically reduce the unconscionable Veteran suicide epidemic in the United States. A suicide is like no other death for the family, the wound never heals. With 22-30 Veterans dying daily from suicide, time is of the essence. The vast majority of these suicides are the result of long-term injuries and/or gross over-medication, or serious misdiagnoses of PTS when the actual diagnoses should have been traumatic brain injury (TBI).
