    Keanu Reeves is getting hyperbaric oxygen chamber treatments

    Keanu Reeves is getting hyperbaric oxygen treatments in Beverly Hills, according to a new exclusive story in The National Enquirer. They say he decided to try the treatments in order to get relief from insomnia, and he feels that it’s working. Hyperbaric oxygen chambers were brought to public awareness in the 1980s when Micheal Jackson claimed that the treatment would help him live to be 150. He was largely dismissed as a quack for his claims, but hyperbaric therapy does have real medical applications and has been approved by Medicare as a reimbursable treatment for specific conditions, including carbon monoxide poisoning and wounds that won’t heal.
    The patient either sits in a large pressurized chamber and breathes through an oxygen mask or goes into a smaller one-person chamber that has pure oxygen. Pressurized oxygen enters the tissues of the body and is said to increase the “oxygen transport capacity of the blood.” Sessions usually last for an hour.

    The treatment is supposed to improve overall health, and has widespread applications. A large Canadian study published in The Lancet in 2001 showed that children with cerebral palsy treated with hyperbaric oxygen therapy and pressurized air improved significantly compared to most all other conventional therapies. Studies have shown similar improvement with hyperbaric therapy for people with Multiple Sclerosis. The side effects and possible complications are similar to diving disorders, and include trapped air in the body.
    Sally Kirkland is a proponent of hyperbaric oxygen treatments, and said it helped her recover from silicone poisoning from breast implants. She claims that it strengthened her immune system and helped clear the silicone from her body. She uses the same treatment center in Beverly Hills, Global Hyperbaric, that Keanu uses.
    In Keanu’s case “he has Global Hyperbaric bring a portable chamber to his Hollywood Hills home, and sometimes his movie set, to administer the treatment” and has received it “numerous times,” according to the Enquirer. He also convinced his co-star in the film Street Kings, Naomi Harris, to give it a try.

    I don't dismiss them for a number of important applications, but apples also increase the “oxygen transport capacity of the blood.” Not to mention helping you stay regular. Seems a far sight easier and less expensive to live by the old maxim.

    He can cut off his nose if he wants to as long as he doesn't have sleepovers with kiddies.

    I always saw Keanu as asexual? But I agree, if that is what too much oxygen does to you....I might have to take up smoking again....

    I've had a crush on Keanu since forever. I'd jump into one of those contraptions if he was in there with me.

    Mmmm.... maybe he should cut down / give up his cigarettes....?



    and he must have a bloody good make-up artist, because he doesn't seem to have that haggard look that insomniacs have that I've seen....

    I've never once thought "oh goody I'd like to lock myself in a glass enclosed capsule" Can't he just do the hose up the nose oxygen like the athletes do?

    I don't care what kind of serious roles he takes, I can't look at him without thinking of Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure.

    Keanu is beginning to seem more interesting than anyone ever suspected.
