Mona’s Recovery from a TBI and PTSD with Hyperbaric Oxygen

Once an avid horseback rider, adventurer and scientist; Mona’s active life was dissolved after
the second of two accidents, with the second occurring in 2014. Mona was supposed to be
managing her busy farm and running workshops supporting people to communicate better with
their horses. But, she couldn’t even remember if she ate or showered properly, was in chronic
pain and suffering from multiple PTSD episodes per day. Luckily, she learned about a hyperbaric
oxygen (HBOT) facility on Vancouver Island, which was able to take her on as a patient.

After Mona’s fifth session of HBOT, in December of 2016, 70% of per pain was gone and she
was able to straighten her legs, which she had been unable to do since 2014. After 11 sessions
her speech was clearer, her humor began returning, she was waking up with minimal pain. But,
after those 11 sessions she returned home and the results didn’t stick. After a few days the
brain fog and pain returned. So she returned for another round of HBOT.

Ultimately, it would take about 40 sessions before the benefits started sticking. After the 40 th
session Mona would have no more PTSD episodes. The intuitive connection between her and
her horses returned. She was able to starting running workshops and the farm again. Mona
eventually purchased an at home chamber, but returns to the island each year to have three
weeks’ worth of hyperbaric at 1.75atm, which has the most impact on her health. (Home
chambers only go to 1.3atm).
