Re: “Blissing Out in the 'Life Vessel'

There is absolutely no research to backup any validity to its use in any condition. I printed up so-called research material that was written by Barry Mcnew, Valerie parks Donaldson and rustom Roy. Showed it to a neurologist well known in our area, who he himself is open to holistic modalities. He called me three days later. He said there is absolutely no hypothesis and no logical conclusion to the four page abstract. He said he read it from beginning to end, three times, and said A + B does not equal C. He said there's a bunch of words here and information, but nothing of any type of tangible results or logical pattern of thinking. Read the previous post right before mine. Barry Mcnew is a schister and conman. Do some research on the guy. Hes not a doctor, he's not a PhD, he's a horse breeder,(nothing against horses) and a carpenter, (nothing against carpenters). Trying to say this machine can only help people. He seems like a money seeking charlatan. The machine I was in was a doityourself handmade job. The invention of which he is damaging people's lives and health. The autonomic nervous system, I never knew of before this machine. I found out the autonomic nervous system is very delicate and intricate.

Re: “Blissing Out in the 'Life Vessel'

This machine is like going into uncharted waters, he is opening up Pandora's box when someone goes into this life vessel machine. Whatever time I have left to live, the time that Jesus Christ my Savior, grants me to live, I have made it my mission to spread the truth about this machine. My life was terribly ruined from this machine. I have been into natural health for about 19 years, and have never had a bad experience with chiros,massage therapists,accupinctirists, and dietary supplements. They had all been my saving grace (beside my lord and savior,jesus christ). Please proceed at your own risk. These people who use this machine are ignorant of what constitutes true health, and Take advantage of people who have health problems and are seeking help. JMJ forever.

Re: “Blissing Out in the 'Life Vessel'

was in the life vessel in 11/2008, had 4 sessions in it. It was in Pgh pa, under a so-called MD who obviously doesn't know the machine that her exhusband, Barry Mcnew made in his carpenter shop, in his basement. After my fourth treatment in this machine, the morning after I had horrific headaches. I noticed my pupils were dilating in the light, and getting smaller in the dark. These headaches lasted a long time, and I still get them to this day. Went to a chiropractic neueologist, who diagnosed me with autonomic dysfunction. I knew this Chiro before the lv sessions. He said the machine fried my nervous system. Within a week and a half, I noticed I could no longer urinate or deficate on my own. I still can't do these two bodily functions on my own, without a special form of b6 to urinate and a combination of aloe Vera three times a day and magnesium three times a day, just to be able to carry out these two bodily functions that I myself did automatically before, as do most people. I also now have to take powerful digestive enzymes to digest my food. I can't digest anything on my own. I still have all of these problems and it's nine years later. 8/2017 now. My advice to anyone reading this and wondering if they should consider using this machine. Please heed my warning, and run, run run as far away from this machine as possible.

Re: “Is Hyperbaric Oxygen a 'Miracle Cure'?

Angela, I encourage you to go communityhyperbaric.com and call the Hardwick office to talk with them more about how best to access HBOT. The phone number is (802) 472-8900. Some people find that buying a chamber is the right option for them & end up taking out a medical loan. Others want to try just a few sessions at first.

As someone who has used HBOT for roughly a year now, I will just reiterate that it is worth the time to look into it. It has brought me much relief from terrible symptoms after a serious concussion and I really feel like I have my life back.

Wishing you & your daughter the best of luck!

Re: “Is Hyperbaric Oxygen a 'Miracle Cure'?

Re: “Is Hyperbaric Oxygen a 'Miracle Cure'?

Thanks for this Great Article Ken!

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) is the Only treatment which actually regenerated my brain cells after a debilitating concussion and TBI which left me a shell of my former self.
After almost 3 years of trying every available modest coping mechanisms, only HBOT brought my brain functioning back to life. I am grateful to Grace Johnstone, DC, who's bringing HBOT to Vermont, so I'm now on the board of www.HyperbaricVermont.org working with Grace to raise awareness and funds to open an HBOT Treatment Facility in Burlington, for starters, making HBOT locally available and accessible. HBOT has restored and improved my brain and body, and pleasantly also reduced long-term inflammatory pain from arthritis and knee replacement pain. I'm delighted to finally be off pain and migraine meds.

I have witnessed how HBOT successfully improves many "difficult to treat" conditions with cumulative hour-long sessions. While resting in a chamber which provides one-third more air pressure and three times the oxygen it's this simple barometric oxygen therapy which heals damaged tissue and clear out problematic inflammation and toxins. HBOT helped alleviate my post TBI PTSD and has improved my sleep, mood, and energy level.

I also benefitted from participating in "Love Your Brain" TBI Adapted Yoga Series, which brought me out of TBI sensory-distorting isolation and enabled me to again enjoy movement and yoga, and which included support and yoga for my caregiving husband, Bob Stuhlmann. I appreciate very bit of of help ofered to people suffering from a TBI, or any condition believed to be "difficult to treat". If conventional methods aren't helping, why not find out if Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy can help?

Re: “A Food Writer Relearns How to Eat Sans Gallbladder

Thanks for your article-I've had gallstones for years but my body has announced it's time to get the gallbladder out! The description of your experience is helpful. I kind I would go right back to work after surgery-you helped me understand that I'm going to have to figure out how to take some time off! Thanks.

Re: “A Food Writer Relearns How to Eat Sans Gallbladder

I actually googled gallbladder+thai food and found your article! Thank you! It was enlightening!

It's been a week for me and I'm ready to eat! I've been doing breakfast shakes and juicing between meals and then living on chicken noodle soup. I need real food and I need it soon! My first craving is for Pad Thai so I'm ordering in and hoping my body doesn't hate me for it!

Re: “Got Sleep Apnea? Try Playing a Didgeridoo

I can think of no better person to study didgeridoo with than PQ. His patience and sincerity totally match his proficiency on the instrument. A great way to get started on this funky stick!

Re: “A Montgomery Salt Cave Might Heal What Ails You

Going to the Salt Cave is such an experience! The owners are willing to talk to you about any of their items that they are selling and how to use them, what they are good for, and why you should be using them. The Detox room is great for those cold winter days, you sit in adjustable comfy chairs and put your hands and feet on the warm salt rocks. And OMG the cave itself; as soon as you walk in you can taste the salt on your lips and immediately I can breath deeper. It is a MUST experience. After the first time you go, you will be hooked! and telling all your friends!

Re: “Trying Yoga on for (Plus) Size

I love the "floating head." It wasn't until I practiced yoga and meditation that I could actually "feel" my legs. Great article!

Re: “A Montgomery Salt Cave Might Heal What Ails You

I love the Salt Cave. I have been twice. Trying to go every other week. My breathing is so much better and I sleep very well. The Khans are very nice people. I highly recommend.
