Ok, tried to add a post yesterday but my eyes were blurry again following treatment so I am not sure what it would have ended up looking like and decided I better not chance it. Although I remember in high school reading about a study they did where they filled a room with chimpanzees and gave them all typewriters and by the end of the week they said they had a complete novel just by chance!
"Psychological defense mechanisms also come into play. If a doctor is not taught about HBOT in medical school (and most are not), and if a doctor therefore does not routinely use or prescribe HBOT for patients, then one of two things must be true in their minds: 1) either that doctor's medical education was deficient and he or she is not providing the best of care for patients; or, 2) other doctors routinely using and prescribing HBOT for conditions that are not FDA-approved (off-label) must be "quacks" who exploit desperate patients. Which do you think their choice will be? It's apparently difficult for many medical doctors to shed an attitude of God-like omniscience and admit that they simply do not know everything there is to know."

"The medical profession is becoming polarized concerning HBOT. A large and powerful majority of medical doctors believe that HBOT should be restricted to treatment of those rare conditions with prior FDA approval. That majority now criticizes and even attacks the growing number of physicians who have become familiar with more than 30,000 published scientific papers the subject, and who advocate or use HBOT to treat patients with so-called off-label (non-FDA-approved) conditions. Opponents of such expanded utilization of HBOT should admit that they are remiss in their care of patients, they should open their minds, educate themselves further, and change their ways."
It goes on to discuss the plethora of published evidence and much more.
Definitely check out the article. It is very well written, here is the link again.
Have a great day everyone!
