HBOT SUCCESS VIDEOS
On Feb 29, 2016 Eden drowned in a swimming pool.
She technically died for nearly 2 hours.
Miracle after miracle has brought her back to her loved ones.
Her "near drowning" caused damage to some of her deep grey matter
and left her with an anoxic brain injury.
This is just part of her story.
This part takes us up to the point where she starts her hyperbaric treatments with Dr. Harch.
Brace yourself for miracles.
NewsMax Deputy Health Editor highlights Hall of Fame Quarterback Joe Namath’s contribution to a Florida Hospital
that is experimenting with Hyperbaric Oxygen as a treatment
for the chronic brain injuries that many athletes suffer.
Joe talks about how he’s used the treatment himself
how it’s helped him significantly and how he wants to help
make this treatment available for others.
A powerful 23 min. video
that explains how HBOT works
and the effectiveness of HBOT with those in need.
It's worth the watch!
Help continue further success of HBOT with Children in Need!
Children and their families need our help!
Insurance does not cover treatment for these children.
Consider a donation to help today - no fund is too small.
Dr. Daphne Denham, Former IHMF Executive Board Member is a general surgeon
with extensive experience in using hyperbarics to
treat both concussions and wounds,
she has brought her practice from Chicago, Illinois to Fargo, North Dakota.
With the help of the Dakota Medical Foundation's (DMF)
"Concussion Care Initiative",
she is hoping to change the standard of care for a concussion!
As of now, the "treatment" for a concussion is often relaxation,
reducing activities and therapy. And, if you or your loved one has suffered
a traumatic brain injury, you know it doesn't seem like enough,
and Dr. Denham would agree.
As part of the DMF Initiative,
100 local student-athletes are able to receive treatment
of their acute concussion for free.
We are proud of Dr. Denham & her dedication with her concussion work!
She is blazing a bold trail that will effect healthcare forever!

A NEW AND POWERFUL VETERAN FUND
HAS BEEN CREATED !
The 'Rusty Fund' of the IHMF is nicknamed for a North Dakota veteran who’s story of brain injury
and misdiagnosis is so common to soldiers, from the ’shell-shocked’ of prior generations to the present day.
The Mission of this special fund is two-fold.
Firstly, to provide funding for the clinical care of brain injured veterans in IHMA affiliated clinics.
Secondly, to provide infrastructure for Advanced MRI Imaging Techniques
such as MR-Spectroscopy and MR-Tractography that are virtually inaccessible to veterans.
These Advanced techniques are critical in advancing the acceptance of HBOT in the Medical Arena!
AND THEIR FAMILIES
Dr. Paul Harch and colleagues have again demonstrated in peer-reviewed research that
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy is safe and effective when used to treat mild Traumatic Brain Injury,
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and/or Persistent Post-Concussive Syndrome.

In February, 2016, a little Girl " Eden" drowned in a swimming pool. She technically died for nearly 2 hours.
Miracle after miracle has brought her back. Her severe anoxic brain injury caused global atrophy of her brain tissues
of nearly 20% as assessed by advanced MRI based computations by Dr. Fogarty.
This was essentially reversed after interventions by Dr. Harch.

The Oklahoma Veteran Traumatic Brain Injury
Treatment and Recovery Act Passed and is Now Law!
On Thursday, June 19th, 2014, Oklahoma became the First State
to create a state fund so which enables hyperbaric treatment
could be paid for and made available for our state’s battle
casualties suffering from traumatic brain injury and PTSD.
Other states are watching and ready to follow Oklahoma’s example.
This victory has been the culmination of 14 years of work by entire teams of people.
