Anal Fissure

Anal Fissure at a glance:

Anal fissure is a small tear that develops in the tissue of the anus. Anal fissures may cause pain and bleeding during bowel movements and may cause spasms in the anal sphincter muscle. [1] The Oxford Recovery Center has seen great success increasing the rate of recovery from anal fissures.

How does the Oxford Recovery Method help treat Anal Fissures?

Hyperbaric oxygen is able to effectively oxidize and remove harmful toxins, heavy metals, bacteria, and viruses, which are all often present with anal fissures. The bacteria that are associated with anal fissures thrive in low oxygen. But these bacteria are poisoned and killed by high levels of pressurized oxygen.

Hyperbaric oxygen has the ability to massively create stem cells in your body. In fact, studies show that your body produces 800% more stem cells after 40 treatments of hyperbaric oxygen. Your body uses these stem cells as extra resources to heal and recover, since stem cells are able to grow up into any kind of cell the body needs. In the case of anal fissures, there can be body tissues which need to be repaired even after toxins and pathogens have been removed from the body. The stem cells produced by hyperbaric oxygen are able to repair this damage.

Hyperbaric oxygen also kickstarts the body’s natural immune system. Hyperbaric oxygen grows brand new white blood cells, modulates immune reactions, and causes new collagen to grow in the gut where 90% of the immune system is located. Better gut function translates to better digestion, absorption of nutrients, and more good probiotic bacteria that keep our immune systems healthy. A healthy immune system is essential for recovery from anal fissures.

Anal fissures is marked by chronic inflammation and constant oxidative stress. Hyperbaric oxygen dramatically lowers inflammation and decreases oxidative stress as it grows new blood vessels throughout the body, providing a new infrastructure of oxygen-rich blood and nutrients to reach inflamed tissue. Hyperbaric oxygen creates a new and ongoing positive chain of events in the body that helps lead to recovery from anal fissure.

  • Use of hyperbaric oxygen to treat chronic anal fissure: The authors found that HBOT increased healing of chronic anal fissure in more than half of patients who did not respond to other therapies. The authors are developing additional dose-ranging trials in order to optimize a treatment protocol.
