Emergency help. How baro- and cryotherapy can help protect against the virus

During the fight against viral infections, the best thing we can do for ourselves and our loved ones is not to panic and take care of our health. In addition to observing basic safety measures and personal hygiene rules, experts recommend comprehensive strengthening of immunity, including taking vitamins, hardening, and the like. However, all these activities are of a long-term cumulative nature and require a long time for the effect to appear. When prompt action is needed, modern hardware techniques come to the rescue, for example, baro- and cryotherapy.

Experts say that a course of just 10 procedures can significantly improve your physiological parameters, increase the body's resistance to external negative factors and improve the immune system. Together with the doctor of the LabRehab rehabilitation center and professional athletes, we find out if this is so, and what is the secret of this magical method.

What is barotherapy?

Barotherapy is a physiotherapy procedure, thanks to which under high pressure the body is saturated with oxygen. In case of its lack, oxygen starvation can develop - hypoxia, which leads to malfunctions in the work of cells, then tissues. Barotherapy treats diseases of the nervous system, heart and blood vessels, endocrine diseases, immunodeficiency, pathologies of pregnancy.

Life is impossible without oxygen. However, every day we feel the deterioration of the environment. Our body feels a lack of this element, which is manifested by a deterioration in well-being, headaches, dizziness, sleep disturbance, decreased performance and disruption of the internal organs. And if a person has any chronic diseases, their course worsens, exacerbations occur. Oxygen deficiency leads to the progression of diseases of the cardiovascular system, respiratory system, central nervous system, endocrine glands, etc.

All these processes can be prevented or minimized through hyperbaric oxygenation (HBO). Oxygen is directed with the blood flow, entering every, even the most distant, cell of the body. This helps the cells to regenerate and not break down further. And those cells that cannot be restored will be destroyed and begin to be replaced by new ones.

How does barotherapy work?

The principle of HBO action is that when lowering external pressure (the so-called vacuum therapy), the difference between it and the internal pressure in the body causes a rush of blood to the surface tissues and skin, their hyperemia and, as a result, an improvement in cellular nutrition and stimulation of metabolic processes.

With an increase in external pressure (in a compression chamber), dissolved in it gases, including those that are toxic to the body.
Under the influence of hyperbaric oxygen in the body, the energy balance is normalized and the functional and metabolic activity of the cell is regulated, which helps to maintain the function of organs within acceptable limits and increase the body's resistance in response to extreme influences.

After treatment in a pressure chamber, the body works, spending energy more economically, bioenergetic processes are launched, the activity of the immune system is normalized and stimulated.

Why do I need barotherapy?

Barotherapy will help if you need to establish certain processes in the body. For example, to correct sleep, increase immunity, speed up metabolism, cope with fatigue, improve the healing of wounds and injuries.

And also:
• during seasonal acute respiratory diseases, in including influenza and pneumonia
• for psycho-emotional disorders
• for chronic diseases of the musculoskeletal system - osteochondrosis, arthrosis, arthritis, muscle-fascial pain syndrome
• for vegetative-vascular dystonia
• when recovering after intense training and competitions
• when the body is overtrained

Nikolay Kruglov, biathlete: I have a very specific task. At the end of last year, I was injured, had an operation, and now I would like to recover sooner and return to my usual way of life. Therefore, I turned to procedures. There are modern technologies that can speed up certain internal regeneration processes. I have quite a rich mountain experience, but objectively it is harder to breathe in the pressure chamber and my ears get blocked. It can be compared to an airplane taking off or landing. In general, absolutely calm.

Yes are there any contraindications?

Yes, but fortunately there are not so many of them. Among them:

• epilepsy (or any other convulsive seizures)
• the presence of residual cavities (cavities, abscesses and air cysts) in the lungs
• severe forms of hypertension
• colds, polyps and inflammation in the nasopharynx, middle ear, developmental abnormalities, etc.

Experts still argue whether such medicine works or is wasting your money.

What is cryotherapy?

Cryotherapy is a physiotherapeutic technique, unique in its effect on the human body, based on short-term contact of the skin with coolinga mixture of atmospheric air and liquid nitrogen vapor to a temperature of –130 ° C… –160 ° C.

Why does the body need low temperatures?

Poor ecology, fast pace of life, constant stress and many other factors negatively affect our immunity. As a result, we become more susceptible to colds and viral diseases, neuroses.

Cryotherapy awakens our immunity, launching the most complex complex of natural defense. All protective and restorative processes are activated, natural anesthetic substances are released, blood circulation, microcirculation and metabolism, nutrition of bone, cartilaginous, muscle tissue increase. As a result, many diseases recede, the general tone of the body, and efficiency increase.

Scientists have proven that cold is able to restore normal functioning of the immune system, therefore cryotherapy is actively used in restorative medicine (after illnesses), as well as to stimulate immunity in often sick people.

Tempering: a relic of the Soviet past or the most accessible spa?

How to temper and whether it is necessary to do it.

How does it work?

The healing effect is based on the fact that under the influence of cold, the body's defense systems are stimulated. As a result, in order to avoid hypothermia, he mobilizes all his resources. After a 2-minute procedure, the number of erythrocytes in the blood increases, carrying oxygen to the cells. Due to the stimulation of the nerve endings by blowing air, muscle tone is regulated, which has a positive effect on human well-being. Such a course helps to protect yourself from seasonal diseases or avoid their complications.

By the way, which is especially important now, cryotherapy will help to cope with the disease at its initial stages (shown at temperatures no higher than 37.5!). The procedure helps to mobilize immunity to fight on the very first visit.

By the way, it is also an effective antidepressant. After the session, in response to temperature stress, there is a powerful release of pleasure hormones - endorphins, which are our internal pain relievers and sedatives.

Anna Sidorova, curler: Since I am a professional athlete, I am very I understand well the meaning of the whole restoration and not only when something happened, but in order for it not to happen. Feels like, of course, you feel refreshed. I cannot say that this is some kind of magic wand. If you have serious problems, then nothing will happen from the fact that you come once. But the feeling of calmness is pleasant in itself, given the current environment with the virus, because of which everyone is afraid to leave the house.

What are the contraindications for cryotherapy?

• pregnancy
• age under 16 years old
• hypersensitivity to cold
• general grave condition of the body
• high blood pressure
• claustrophobia
• epilepsy
• malignant neoplasms
