HOPE FOR MANY HOPELESS DISEASES, FROM ONE OF THE FOREMOST RESEARCHERS IN THE FIELD 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.
About the Author
Born and raised in Chicago, one of Virginia's earliest memories was writing her name on a peach-colored index card and being rewarded with her very own library card. Her family's weekly treks to the library in her city neighborhood rooted her life in a love of books and reading. She began her writing career when she moved to the coast of Maine with her own family, soon breaking in to magazines with articles about sailing/cruising, family living, and children's literature. Virginia entered the book publishing arena with coauthored books on medical topics and soon became a ghostwriter/editor for doctors, therapists, business leaders, professional speakers, and many others who had a story to tell. Virginia has written over 100 books for her clients, including 12 titles for Alan R. Hirsch, MD., a neurologist-psychiatrist and developer of Sensa, the popular weight loss program. Her coauthored books include, The Oxygen Revolution (Hatherleigh, third update, 2012), with Paul Harch, MD, a pioneer in the field of hyperbaric medicine; Option Trading in Your Spare Time (Sourcebooks) with Wendy Kirkland, an expert in option trading; 52 Ways to Bring More Humor, Hugs, and Hope into Your Life, with professional speaker, Greg Risberg, MSW, CSP. In 2011, she and a friend and colleague, Lynda McDaniel, cofounded The Book Catalysts, a book writing coaching service that also offers webinars and tools for writers. Since she likes nothing more than hanging out with other writers, Virginia belongs to the Authors Guild and the Romance Writers of America, along with several of its affiliate chapters. A three-time Golden Heart finalist, Virginia's manuscripts have been chosen as finalists in many contests and she's also won a few. Virginia has two grown children, and enjoys being a grandmother, too. She currently calls Green Bay, Wisconsin home, but has been fortunate to have lived in six states and U.S.V.I. When asked about the themes that emerge in her fiction, Virginia says she likes to explore the various ways we create families, plus her books always focus on hope, healing, and plenty of second chances. Island Healing is the first book in her St. Anne's Island series.
