SPG Blocks are often extremely successful for treating Panic Attacks as well as Headaches, Orofacial Pain,Trigeminal Neuralgia and Migraines. Neuromuscular Dentistry has been shown to increase blood flow to the brain.
Can Brain pH be addressed with Hyperbaric Oxygen to treat Panic Attacks, Bipolar and Schizophrenic disease?
I work with Dr Steven Best at the Neuroscience center in who utilizes SPECT scans diagnostically and Hyperbaric Oxygen Treatment. http://www.neurosciencechicago.com/
The SPECT scan frequently show areas that are hypoxic (low oxygen) and likely have low pH from CO@ build up.
Hyperbaric oxygen can treat hypoxic areas identified on SPECT scan that I recently saw in a physician and patient who was treated with SPG Blocks, and Hyperbaric Oxygen.
Is Hyperbaric Oxygen a possible cure or treatment of these disorders or is the low pH secondary to the disease. There is little risk to Hyperbaric oxygen and many possible benefits.

Although the brains of patients with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder exhibit decreased brain pH relative to those of healthy controls upon postmortem examination, it remains controversial whether this finding reflects a primary feature of the diseases or is a result of confounding factors such as medication and agonal state. To date, systematic investigation of brain pH has not been undertaken using animal models that can be studied without confounds inherent in human studies. In the present study, we first reevaluated the pH of the postmortem brains of patients with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder by conducting a meta-analysis of existing data sets from 10 studies. We then measured pH, lactate levels, and related metabolite levels in brain homogenates from five neurodevelopmental mouse models of psychiatric disorders, including schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and autism spectrum disorder. All mice were drug naive with the same agonal state, postmortem interval, and age within each strain. Our meta-analysis revealed that brain pH was significantly lower in patients with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder than in control participants, even when a few potential confounding factors (postmortem interval, age, and history of antipsychotic use) were considered. In animal experiments, we observed significantly lower pH and higher lactate levels in the brains of model mice relative to controls, as well as a significant negative correlation between pH and lactate levels. Our findings suggest that lower pH associated with increased lactate levels is not a mere artifact, but rather implicated in the underlying pathophysiology of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.
