Ulcers are commonly caused by either an infection from a bacteria called H. pylori (Helicobacter pylori) or the use of certain pain medications known as NSAIDs. The primary symptom of an ulcer is a dull or burning pain.
If left untreated, ulcers can result in severe health complications, including bleeding. However, with appropriate treatment, ulcers can be effectively managed. Treatment for ulcers typically involves a combination of lifestyle changes and medications.
“Hyper” means increased and “Baric” relates to pressure. Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy (HBOT) thus refers to intermittent treatment of the entire body with 100% oxygen at greater then normal atmospheric pressures.
