Tony Robbins

"Malcolm Hooper is passionate about hyperbaric oxygen and how it can help people all over the world suffering from pain and illness. Hyperbaric Oxygen has helped me". I commend his book "The Life is in the Blood".


‘Talk about getting punched in the gut when you’re not ready. First up I was told I had spinal stenosis, and then I tore my rotator cuff while snowboarding for which I thought I was going to get some PRP injections to heal my shoulder. Instead, I was told that I’m not ever going to be functional again. I called four of the best doctors I knew and they all said there was no solution. But I had made a promise to myself that I wasn’t going to suffer, so I kept searching and found a man in Melbourne Australia, Malcolm Hooper, who sent me before-and-after MRIs to show me how 100 hours of hyperbaric oxygen causes the body to release 800 per cent more stem cells than your body would ever get from any drug or other approach. So I went to his clinic and he wanted to test my cytokines, as well as my inflammation and heavy metal markers, and all of a sudden I was thinking, ‘What am I doing here?’ And yet my markers were extreme! I still have challenges with my spine, but on a zero-to-ten scale I would say I’m a nine.’

"My groups helped to pass a law in Arizona recognizing HBOT for military TBI - PTSD. 
As you are talking about treating infectious disease I think it is important to consider Leprosy.  Mother Teresa treated Leprosy with HBOT.  Our colleague Dr. Donald Jolly ( was instrumental in helping to deploy those HBOT units.  Leprosy has shown up again in the US state of Texas, apparently carried by Armadillos.  It may be a good infectious disease to focus on. 
As a neurologist - specialist, I have treated a full spectrum of neurological conditions over the past 15 years including SCI.  My colleague is a neuropharmacologist, and he designs a nutrient optimization protocol for each of our patients.  We also use PEMF therapies. 
Let me know how I can help you.  I will be sharing your vision with my team."

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Using Evidence-Based Medicine to Heal Injured Brain Tissue​​

TBI and PTSD are seriously debilitating injuries that affect millions of Americans [16]. HBOT is a safe and highly effective therapy for healing an oxygen-deprived organ such as an injured brain. Government protocols for treatment of TBI and PTSD are off-label, have no documented evidence of efficacy, and are prescribed in spite of significant deleterious side effects. Compelling evidence exists from clinical studies [1718] and from growing numbers of clinical reports of military veterans, National Football League veterans [19], and civilian patients that HBOT can restore patients' ability to once again function normally as spouses, parents, employers, employees, and contributing citizens of the community.

"This situation warrants the earliest availability of HBOT for treatment of TBI and PTSD among injured civilians and military personnel through federal and state government health care systems based on evidence-based medicine criteria."
