Summary of the testimonial

My name is Mark Thomas and I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in August of 1994. Since then I have tried many therapies, mostly interferon based, and have seen no results from that endeavor. I used to be a Master BMW Technician and after three years of the disease progressing I quit automotive maintenance and repair, then I went to work as the service manager of a local auto repair shop where I did very well until I could not walk; even with a cane or walker. Then in January of 2004 I was given the opportunity to take mHBOT at the clinic in Gumming , Georgia . At this point I was completely wheelchair bound, unable to walk for even the shortest distances, but after just three therapy sessions I was able to walk from my car into my house, unassisted! During the therapy I have found that I am able to walk up and down the stairway inside of the clinic to get to my sessions, 20 stairs. At first when I used to go up stairways I had to fight a very common symptom of Multiple Sclerosis called toe drop, this is where you cannot completely move one or both of your legs/feet, but now I can completely walk up the stairs without having to drag my left leg behind me! I have also noticed that my sleeping patterns have gone back to what they used to be before Multiple Sclerosis, now I can sleep for about nine hours undisturbed, plus my dreams are much more vivid and memorable, I remember dreams from more than two months ago. I have been able to stop taking interferon Rebif and Provigil, not on any medications and have gone past the due date for IV steroids or IVIG. I am also able to take a bath by myself, without any help. There are so many things that I can now do that I couldn't even think about in the past since my hyperbaric therapies. A few of my symptoms that I do not recognize as being better have been brought to my attention by others who have seen changes; system and it is much easier for others to see changes than it is for me to see them. Another change that I have noticed is that I can now get into the hyperbaric chamber by myself, which I definitely could not do before my therapy began. EVERYONE OWES IT TO THEMSELVES TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS VERY IMPORTANT THERAPY THAT IS USED FOR MANY DIFFERENT DISEASES.
