What's Happening at Pikes Peak Hyperbaric?
May 2012 Update:
1) PPH and Brendan Schaub featured on UFC, April 21
2) More rental chambers!
3) Buy a chamber?
4) ASEA update
1) Watch for Brendan Schaub and Pikes Peak Hyperbaric on the UFC 145 fight card on April 21 on the Fuel channel. Brendan is a heavyweight MMA fighter who is using our hyperbaric chambers to help him prepare for his upcoming fight. Pikes Peak Hyperbaric will be featured on a pre fight special where a camera crew followed Brendan on a ‘Day in the Life’ segment called Inside the Octagon. And the camera crew followed him right into Pikes Peak Hyperbaric/Denver when he came in for his session. The special airs on April 18.
2) The chamber rental business continues to be a fast growing segment of our hyperbaric business and we continue to add chambers to our inventory to keep up with the demand. We now have 7 chambers available for rental and last month they were all out! As long as the demand keeps growing, we’ll continue to add chambers. For many people, the convenience and cost effectiveness of having a chamber in your own home make it an easy decision when you want to get a lot of hours under your belt in a short period of time. Remember, we have a podcast that you can listen to on our rental program. Here’s the link:
3) Can you buy a chamber from us? Absolutely! As a matter of fact we’ve sold two new chambers in the past six weeks. If you have questions, just give us a call and we’ll get you details and pricing on new chambers.
4) We’ve had more then a few of you now asking about the ASEA product we’re stocking in the back area. As I mentioned in my last email, ASEA is a heavily patented biotech health product that I’ve been researching the past four months that works very synergistically with hbot.
It’s a groundbreaking product in a relatively (last ten years) new field of science called Redox Signaling. The health implications for this product are staggering, which is why it’s so heavily patented. Crystal and I flew out to ASEA’s headquarters in Utah last month for a conference and met with both of the founders of the company, Verdis Norton and James Pack. To say that these two men have world-class business credentials and track records would not be an exaggeration.
The product is real and Verdis and James are genuinely good men that share my health and fitness passion. I’ve started to incorporate the ASEA product into our hyperbaric protocols at Pikes Peak Hyperbaric for some of our sickest clients, and have become involved in building an ASEA business, which has grown from a team of 1 to 57 people during that four-month research timeframe.
Here’s a great informational website on the product and business plan put together by a gentleman named Alan Noble, who is advising me in my ASEA business: http://www.amazingmolecules.com.
Also if you’re interested, I’ve been asked to speak for a couple of minutes on a 30-minute ASEA national call tomorrow (Tuesday) night at 7 PM, Mountain Time. The call in number is 641 715-3842, then enter the access code 4727726, followed by the pound sign (#).
This will be a listen-only call for general information. However, immediately following that call there will be a private, two-way call that ASEA has set up for people here in Colorado that want to ask specific questions about the product, as well as the business opportunities for my ASEA team. If you listened to the first call you’re welcome to join Alan and myself on that second call as well. That number is 712 432-0075 and the access code is 496216, followed by the pound sign again.
Crystal, with her medical background, was so impressed with Dr. Gary Samuelson’s presentation (It was Dr. Samuelson’s team that was responsible for the true breakthrough, stabilizing redox signaling molecules outside the human body) that she decided to join our ASEA team and will be transitioning into it full time over the next month or two.
I’d like to restate the offer I made a while back just to our hbot clients. Try a case of ASEA (a roughly 30 day supply) and I’ll comp you dollar for dollar ($120.00) in complimentary hbot sessions so you can try it and see for yourself. And if at the end of the 30-day period you feel like you haven’t felt and noticeable improvements, I’ll refund the $120.00 for the case of ASEA. This is a no lose offer. Please take me up on it.
Until Next Time,

PPH Update and Merry Christmas!
1) Mr. Olympia, Phil Health interview
2) Colorado Springs Business Journal article
3) United States Olympic Committee meeting
4) New Podcasts
5) Fresh Ink front page
It’s been a while since I’ve sent out an email about Pikes Peak Hyperbaric and boy, a lot has happened in the last few months. Here’s a sample;
1) Colorado is now home to the rarest of athletes, a Mr. Olympia. Only 13 men have held that title in the 47 years the contest has been held. Colorado’s own Phil Heath won the 2011 Mr. Olympia title in Las Vegas back in September. He competed against the best professional bodybuilders in the world to bring the title home to Colorado. But Phil had a secret weapon this year, a hyperbaric oxygen chamber that he rented from Pikes Peak Hyperbaric for the last three months of his training. Phil was nice enough to do a podcast for us talking about his big victory (not to mention picking up a nice $200,000 winner’s check) and how hbot helped his training. Here’s the link to the podcast;
2) We got a nice article in the Colorado Springs Business Journal last month. Our work is starting to garner more and more attention locally and our quest to build the first hyperbaric Bio-Dome in the country has really generated a lot of interest in the community. Here’s the link to the article; http://ow.ly/i/mOpc
3) One of those groups interested in the hyperbaric Bio-Dome is the United States Olympic Committee here in Colorado Springs. We made an initial presentation to four people at USOC training headquarters in late October and will be back with them this Thursday for a follow up meeting. They’re looking at the possibility of constructing a Bio-Dome right at the USOC training facilities for their athletes to use.
We all know how effective hbot is for athletes as a legitimate method to accelerate their ability to heal from injuries and recover more quickly from intense workouts. But at present athletes must go into the small, static confines of a hyperbaric chamber to recover. And as wonderful and effective as that environment is, the ultimate circumstance for an athlete (and for all of us actually), would be to be in a hyperbaric environment where we could freely move around and exercise, like a hyperbaric gym; AKA a Bio-Dome!
To train intensely under mild hyperbaric conditions would be a huge advantage to an athlete competing against other athletes who trained under traditional ambient atmospheric conditions. They could train longer and harder with the extra oxygen in their bodies as a result of hyperbarics. And training longer and harder means faster and stronger athletes.
The advantage is so real that for a while it was thought that hbot enhancement would be ruled illegal by WADA (World Anti Doping Association). But WADA recently ruled on ‘hyperbaria’ and determined that since it was a totally natural process (unlike blood doping, which produces similar effects), it was a legal training aid if athletes choose to use it. Now you see why the USOC is so excited to explore the possibilities with us.
4) We’ve put some new podcasts up since I last wrote that I think are pretty good. Besides the Phil Health interview we have two new podcasts, ‘HBOT 101’ and ‘Oxygen for the Brain.’ Here’s the link to the main Podcast Guide page;
To round out what’s been a very good few months for us, we’re on the front page of this week’s Internet edition of Fresh Ink. I was interviewed recently by Fresh Ink website manager Bob Stevens on the reason for all the excitement recently about hyperbaric oxygen therapy and what it means to the average person. Take a listen if you have a few minutes: http://www.csfreshink.com
Well that should keep you busy for a while. It’s been a wonderful journey these first two years learning what hyperbaric oxygen therapy can do for so many different conditions and seeing it help so many of our many clients. And we have some exciting plans and developments for 2012 that you’ll be hearing about in the coming months. We thank you for your support and helping us get the word out about the benefits of hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
So as Christmas approaches and we’re all out there scrambling for those last minute Christmas gifts for friends and loved ones just remember that ultimately, the greatest gift we can ask for is our health.
Until Next Year,
2) Pikes Peak Hyperbaric on TV!
3) New Podcast center on our website.
4) SOS program
5) Rental program
6) Haven’t been in recently?
This is just a quick hello and update from Pikes Peak Hyperbaric to our database of customers.
1) For those of you who don’t follow the bodybuilding world (which is most of you I imagine), the Mr. Olympia is the Superbowl of professional bodybuilding competitions, with an eye popping $200,000.00 grand prize going to the winner. Elite professional bodybuilders from all over the world train for years with the dream of some day just qualifying for the event. In the 47 years the Mr. Olympia has been going on, only twelve men have ever held this most coveted of titles.
Having given you this background, I’m proud to say Colorado is now the home of the 2011 Mr. Olympia! His name is Phil Health and he lives in Arvada, Colorado. Phil called Pikes Peak Hyperbaric about three months ago to ask about hyperbaric treatment for athletic performance. He was the 2010 runner-up at the Olympia and he was looking for a little extra edge this try to try and get him to the top.
Phil came down to the Denver clinic and did a session. We talked for a while and he is just the most genuine guy you’ve ever met. He told us later on that when he went into the gym for his workout that day he set new PR’s (Personal Records) in some of his lifts and was hooked! Jesse and I delivered a rental chamber to him a few days later and he incorporated hbot sessions into his final 12 weeks of training for this year’s Olympia, which was held on September 17 at the Orleans Convention Center in Las Vegas.
Jesse and Phil have been in contact during his final preparations and Phil told Jesse that people were going to, as he put it, “freak out” when they saw him this year. And man, he wasn’t kidding! He looked absolutely fantastic. He had to be, going up against a guy named Jay Cutler, the 4-time and current Mr. Olympia. Taking the title from a 4-time champion is a monumental task. But there really wasn’t any argument that night when they announced the winner. On this day, Phil was clearly the better physique, something Jay Cutler very graciously agreed with as he handed the title over to Phil, who happens to be his best friend.
It was a great night for Phil. It was also a great night for us as Jesse, Brad and myself were right there in the audience to cheer our friend on. Check out the Twitter feed on our website and you’ll see a short video clip I took. You’ll see some new pics and a podcast Phil is going to do with us in the next month or so.
Having the current Mr. Olympia right here in Colorado is pretty special and to think that Pikes Peak Hyperbaric might have played a small part in his victory is an awesome feeling.
2) We now have four autistic children that we’ve worked with at our Colorado Springs and Denver clinics and we’ve seen very good results with all of them. Our local NewsFirst 5 TV station became interested enough that they came out to our location and wound up doing a very nice segment on hyperbaric treatment for autism. If you didn’t see it, here’s the link: http://www.newsfirst5.com/news/healing-under-pressure/
3) We recently added a podcast center to our website (http://www.pikespeakhyperbaric.com/hbot-media/hbot-audio). If you have a few minutes, listen to a few of these podcasts. Discovering Thomas, part 1 and 2 is the story of Kim Nickerson and her autistic son, Thomas, who has made remarkable strides since he started hbot treatment. He’s a wonderful little boy that I became very fond of, and Kim is a woman who defines the word ‘mother.” So now you can both view short video clips and/or listen to people talk about their experiences with hyperbaric oxygen therapy (hbot).
4) Our SOS (Save Our Soldiers) corporate program for TBI/PTSD injured Ft. Carson troops is now helping our fourth soldier, Jeremy Landrell. We recently recorded short podcasts for former SOS soldiers Jason Nash and Geovani Gonzalez that you can listen to here. Geovani was injured in a car accident shortly before he was scheduled to deploy and suffered a career ending TBI. Jason’s story is a first hand account of what it was like being on the front lines of combat in Iraq, the physical price he paid serving our country and how hbot treatment is helping him in his recovery.
Our SOS program teams Pikes Peak Hyperbaric up with local Colorado companies to donate hbot sessions to injured soldiers like Geovani, Jason and Graham that need hbot treatment but simply can’t afford it.
We now have ten companies that are working with Pikes Peak Hyperbaric to make this treatment available to them. The more companies that participate with us, the more soldiers we can help. Here’s the update page where you can read about the soldiers that our SOS program has been able to sponsor:
5) I’m surprised with how quickly we’ve grown as we enter our second year here in Colorado. We now have two chambers in both our Colorado Springs and Denver clinics. In addition, we have three additional chambers available for our new home rental program, which is proving to be very popular, not to mention convenient and cost effective.
Some clients that we treat have physical challenges that make it very difficult to get to our clinics multiple times a week for treatment. With our new rental program, for one flat monthly fee we’ll bring a chamber to your home, set it up for you and show you how to use it. When you’re ready to return the chamber you simply give us a call and we’ll come and pick it up. We will deliver anywhere in the state of Colorado. It’s very convenient and you have unlimited use of that chamber during your rental period. If you’d like more information on the rental program, give us a call at 866 674-6070.
6) I’ve bumped into two PPH monthly members that haven’t been in for a while and they both had the same question: “I’m accruing credits in my account each month if I don’t do any sessions, right?” The answer is; absolutely! It’s a unique feature of our PPH membership plan that if don’t do any hbot sessions during a month, we take your monthly membership fee and apply it to session credits that go into your account. Even better, you’re accumulating sessions at your low $50.00 member rate instead of the non-member rates of $70.00 - $80.00. If you are a member and want to check on session credits just give us a call and we’ll check for you.
That’s it for now. Mild hyperbaric oxygen therapy is now available and affordable right here in Colorado. Please give us a hand and tell a friend or two that might benefit from hyperbaric oxygen therapy. The list of conditions that may benefit from hbot continues to grow. Here’s a current sampling: http://www.pikespeakhyperbaric.com/conditions.
It’s a wonderful, incredibly safe and most importantly, very effective therapy. And we stand behind our service with a 100% money back guarantee if you try hbot and honestly feel you got no benefit from it. We either both win in this relationship, or neither one does.
Until Next Time,
Ric Rooney/Pikes Peak Hyperbaric
It has been a while since I posted any progress with Landen. We have since moved out of the state and are no longer doing hyperbaric treatments. Finding a HBOT provider as easy to work with as Rick and his crew is proving to be quite the challenge. Rick and the staff at Pikes Peak Hyperbaric truly were a blessing for my son and our family.
Landen started the 3rd grade last month and continues to make great progress. The improvements he made while doing the HBOT treatments seem to have stayed with him. My only regret is that we will not be working with Rick anymore. For anyone who is curious about the treatments, go for it. It is the only treatment that I will vouch for in the long treatment process of Autism. Thanks again Rick.
Diabetic foot is an all encompassing term for foot problems in people with diabetic mellitus. The most common problem is the diabetic foot ulcer.
Diabetic foot ulcer is one complication of uncontrolled diabetes. Due to arterial abnormalities, diabetic neuropathy, as well as delayed healing in tissue, infection or gangrene of the foot can develop. Diabetic foot ulcers occur in 15% of all patients with diabetic mellitus. It is also the cause for 84% of all lower leg amputations.
Diabetic foot wounds and wounds from damage or disease to arteries and veins to the legs benefit can from Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT).
Those wounds where the blood supply has been damaged, there is swelling, or infection or the body's immune system does not work properly, as in diabetes can be helped tremendously with HBOT. HBOT is able to supply an increased amount of oxygen to these wounds which helps heal the wound from the inside quicker. HBOT can help the body bring the foot infections under control, and then HBOT stimulates healing of the skin and bone tissues, which then promote healing of these wounds. Rather than amputate, surgeons need to remove only a minimal amount of tissue.
Diabetic foot is one of the few conditions that is an approved by insurance companies to use HBOT as of current. For more information please go to pikespeakhyperbaric.com or call 866-674-6070 press option #2.
