Book Description

When Randy McCloy, Jr., the sole survivor of the Sago Mine disaster, finally walked out of the hospital to rejoin his family, it was in part due to the miracle of hyperbaric oxygen therapy. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is based on an almost laughably simple idea: Oxygen can be used therapeutically for a wide range of conditions where tissues have been damaged by oxygen deprivation. Restore that oxygen, goes the logical thinking, and you can restore much of the lost function.
It seems too good to be true, but Dr. Paul G. Harch’s research and clinical practice has shown that this noninvasive and painless treatment can help the tens of millions of Americans who suffer from a brain injury or disease, such as:
· Stroke
· Autism and other learning disabilities
· Cerebral palsy and other birth injuries
· Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, and other degenerative neurological diseases
· Emergency situations requiring resuscitation, such as cardiac arrest, carbon monoxide poisoning, or near drowning

It can also improve conditions in which inflammation is the culprit, such as arthritis and asthma; promote healing in infections, burns, and skin grafts, such as diabetic foot wounds; and slow the aging process.
For the millions of Americans suffering from these seemingly “hopeless” diseases, here finally is the handbook of hope. Inspiring and informative, The Oxygen Revolution is the definitive guide to the miracle of hyperbaric oxygen therapy, from a pioneer in the field.

Editorial Reviews


“One of the most important and insightful medical books in 40 years. If you or your loved one have a neurological condition, you cannot afford to be without this book; it has the potential to restore your lost life.”
–Vance Trimble, Pulitzer Prize winner and author of The Uncertain Miracle

“History has demonstrated the value, role, and contribution of medical mavericks like Dr. Harch and the need for more of them. This book serves as a valuable guide in delivering the hard science demanded but often overlooked by mainstream medicine in controversial treatment arenas [like hyperbaric oxygen therapy]. This book will change lives, lives that haven’t been born yet.”
–Rick Rader, M.D., President of the American Academy of Developmental Medicine and Dentistry

“Dr. Harch is a tireless researcher, brilliant clinician, and true pioneer in hyperbaricoxygen therapy. In this book, he offers compelling reasons for the widespread adoption and utilization of this remarkable, yet overlooked, therapy.”
–Julian Whitaker, M.D., founder of Whitaker Wellness Institute and editor of Health & Healing newsletter

“[T]his book is a brilliant, enjoyably readable, yet in-depth explanation of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT).... The concepts in this book should be taught in every medical school and hospital and known in every household.”
–R.A. Neubauer, M.D., founder of the Ocean Hyperbaric Neurologic Center

“An authoritative, well-written book on a subject we all need to know more about.
Highly recommended for physicians and health care consumers alike.”
–Nathaniel Altman, author of The Oxygen Prescription

“Hyperbaric oxygen has been the Cinderella of modern medicine for several decades given that oxygen is not a patentable drug. Finally, thanks to the pioneering efforts of Dr. Harch, the man-on-the-street is becoming aware of this non-invasive therapy.”
–Kenneth P. Stoller, M.D., FAAP, President of the International Hyperbaric Medical Association

The Oxygen Revolution is a fascinating book written by one of the great pioneers in the field of hyperbaric medicine. Dr. Harch shares his incredible knowledge and experience in a compelling book that is both comprehensive and accessible to the lay person. It opens tremendous horizons in the treatment of numerous conditions and will give true hope to millions of people with chronic diseases.”
–Pierre Marois, M.D., F.R.C.P., Ste-Justine University Hospital

Paul Harch's The Oxygen Revolution simply and clearly teaches readers just what's wrong with the healthcare system. Oxygen is the most "medically necessary" substance there is, but its inherent value is all but ignored by a lazy, arrogant public health system and a corrupt, profit-driven private healthcare industry.

It costs $1,000,000,000 for a pharmaceutical company to put a new drug on the market with a 7-year, non-renewable patent. That means there's just seven years to recoup the $1,000,000,000--plus make another $1,000,000,000 to have enough capital to develop the next drug--plus make enough profit besides the $2,000,000,000 to stay in business. If they don't make a profit, drug companies go out of business.

Instead of finding cures, the pharmaceutical business cycle produces drugs with outrageous price tags that only treat symptoms and not the root cause of disease. Consequently, nobody's developed a cure for any disease since polio over 50 years ago. To survive, drug companies create products that create perpetual consumers, i.e., customers. Sick people are no longer patients, and physicians are too arrogant to realize they're just pawns in the system.

The Oxygen Revolution gives us a simple biology lesson: all disease processes begin with some form of oxygen deprivation. Then Harch shows us how many, many ills of the system can be cured if patients are just given a little more oxygen.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) can save us millions of heartaches and billions of dollars. Read The Oxygen Revolution, and you'll understand how HBOT can save our very lives and the lives of our loved ones.

The Oxygen Revolution ---- what a wonderful book! This is what has been needed for the general public for so long! There are many books on hyperbaric oxygen therapy for the medical profession but this is the first one I know of that speaks to the layperson.

I've seen what hyperbaric oxygen therapy can do for people who felt hopeless before giving hyperbaric therapy a try. The results have ranged from subtle to dramatic - what some call miracles and, having seen the changes, I can understand why.

The Oxygen Revolution is set up in a way that you can choose what you want to learn about. You may want to read it all or you may only be interested (at this time) in certain conditions. Dr. Harch makes it easy to do just that by the way he has set it up. Part III of The Oxygen Revolution is of extreme value to all of us. Once you've familiarized yourself with the conditions that hyperbaric oxygen therapy can help, Part III tells us what we REALLY need to know: how to get HBOT when we need it, what obstacles to expect, and how to get involved to change healthcare policy. For me, this was of incredible value! I don't need to understand how hyperbaric oxygen therapy works but I do need to know how to get it when I need it.

It amazes me that so many know so little about this treatment when it has been around for quite some time. But then again, when the medical community itself has not taken the time to educate itself fully regarding hyperbaric therapy, how can we expect to know about it? Most of the time, it is through our doctors that we become familiar with therapies, treatments, procedures, etc.

I urge everyone to read the book; educate YOURSELF.

5.0 out of 5 stars THOUGHTS FROM ONE WHO USES HBOT THERAPY May 23, 2009
Upon finding out that I had endometrial/uterine cancer, my husband bought me a portable hyperbaric chamber (herinafter referred to as "the chamber") and I was perscribed a round of 40 treatments at a nearby (50+ miles away) clinic. The chambers at the clinic are larger and there is 100% oxygen under pressure; a more intense treatment overall. But, you need to do 3 treatments (minimum) per week (and no more than 2 per day; 4 hours apart) to see results. My personal chamber can be used for 8+ hours at a stretch, if I wanted to sleep in it.
Before surgery, I had 3 tumors in the wall of the uterus and they were 1-1/2 inches long. After using the hyperbaric chamber, alkaline diet, no sugar approach for the 2 months before the surgery, there was only 1 tumor left; it was only 1-1/2 CENTIMETERS long and was only on the lining of the endometrium! I was cured! CANCER-FREE!

Yes, I continue to use my chamber almost daily; it helps with many other health concerns I have. My small, very old, dog INSISTS on going into the chamber with whoever is going to be using it. He is 12 years old and folks ask when I got my puppy. That is how young and frisky he is!

This past week a friend with RSD (a horrible, painful condition that keeps one in agony 24/7; suicidal levels of pain; excruciating to see someone in that much pain) The first day in my chamber he was painfree for 30 minutes. The first time he had been painfree in 3+ years! Each following day, the pain was less intense, the painfree time was greater, the hand where it was in opened further, the color and texture of the skin was better.

I would recommend this course of therapy to anyone who has illness. All it is, is oxygen and pressure...we have both of these around us all the time (not as concentrated, of course), so, as the first part of the hypocratic oath states, it does no harm.

If you have questions, plesse feel free to ask. I'd be happy to answer what I am able to.
