Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Hey, there! It’s Dr. Justin Marchegiani. Welcome back to the podcast. We have Ryan Brinkerhoff here, who is a hyperbaric uh— expert. We’re gonna talk about Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy and— and what it can be good for. Ryan’s website is insideouthyperbarics.com. He’s at of uh— St. George, Utah. he has a clinic, where he hs treat people with a p— patients with all kinds of different uh— issues from autism to brain injuries, to trauma, to strokes, to aneurysms. And we’re using these types of therapies to naturally help that tissue heal and, ideally, get back to optimal functions as much as possible. Hey, Ryan, welcome to the podcast.

Ryan Brinkerhoff: Pleasure to be here, Dr. Thanks you.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Oh, great. Well, talk to us about hyperbarics. What— What is this technology? Can you kind of break it down? How does someone utilize it and apply it, and who’s it good for?

Ryan Brinkerhoff: Okay. So, hyperbarics, basically, uhm— just kind of paint a picture of what it is— So, you’re getting to a pressurized chamber, and while you’re in there, you’re gonna breathe a hundred percent Oxygen, full-time. And so, there’s a lot of things that happen inside the body when there’s a— when you’re inside the chamber. The first thing is— is— It’s actually a law of Physics. It’s called Henry’s Law.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Uhmhm—

Ryan Brinkerhoff: So the Oxygen, it’s actually being changed from a uh— a gas to a liquid. So instead of travelling a task to red blood cells like Oxygen normally does, now it’s being flooded through the plasma. So when that happens, you can get really, really high doses of Oxygen in the uh— the extremities, and mainly into the brain. So they’ll see Oxygen levels inside the brain go up 700-900% when— when you’re doing this. Uhm— A few other things that happens. Stem cell production goes up, so your body naturally starts using ,the stem cells that are there to help your body go into a healing state. And then uh— another cool feature is this. Its Collagen production goes way up. So we—

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Oh! Interesting.

Ryan Brinkerhoff: Yeah. So we actually get a lot of uhm— women in here that are using these Hyperbaric chambers to kind of fight uh— you know, doctor time e— and keep their youthful and vibrant looks.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: So, in general, like, Oxygen saturation in our environment’s what— like, 20, 21, 22 percent. So the whole goal is number one, you’re increasing that overall percentage, and it’s pressurized so i— it’s getting absorbed more efficiently? Is that what’s happening?

Ryan Brinkerhoff: Right. So it’s getting absorbed more efficiently but it’s also changing the way that it’s delivering throughout your body. So, again— So, like somebody, for instance, with Anemia, right? So, they— They’re suffering from…

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Yeah.

Ryan Brinkerhoff: …low Oxygen [inaudible] ‘cause they don’t have enough red blood cells to carry it.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Right.

Ryan Brinkerhoff: So, when— when— when you get in a hyperbaric chamber, you don’t even need red blood cells to transport Oxygen anymore, and that— and that’s the reason why they’re starting to put these uhm— in Louisiana right now. They’re putting hyperbaric chambers on emergency vehicles. So, if somebody loses a ton of bloods, and they get stabbed, they’re— or something happens, the whole race to get them back to the hospital to save their life is to what? Give them blood so they can— they can breathe, right? Well…

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Uhmhm—

Ryan Brinkerhoff: If you’re through somebody a Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber, you do not have to have the red blood cells there. The— The body will still get the Oxygen that it needs.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: So are we still breathing all the Oxygen or is this Oxygen permeating through our skin or through other means outside of our— our Sinuses?

Ryan Brinkerhoff: No. You’re still breathing it all in. No. You’re still breathing it all in. No—

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: It’s just that a higher intensity in it. It’s pressurized so it— it’s getting into the cells— into the bloodstream kind of not necessarily passively but more actively from the pressure?

Ryan Brinkerhoff: Exactly. Yes. So…

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Uh— Okay.

Ryan Brinkerhoff: …when they get converted from it’s gas to its liquid state, now it’s just free-flowing with the plasma instead of— of needing Hemoglobin and red blood cells to travel. So, that’s why it gets in such higher concentrations.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani:Got it. So, therapeutically, we— we’re getting it in there more through an active transport, not necessarily a passive transport.

Ryan Brinkerhoff: Exactly.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: If there’s Anemia, we’re kind of bypassing that mechanism. And then, having that high saturation of Oxygen, so we’re decreasing inflammation. So if someone has a brain injury, it’s helping that tissue heal. So walk me through it. Someone comes in. They bumped their head. They get in a car accident. Like…

Ryan Brinkerhoff: Right.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: …what does that protocol look like to help this person get better?

Ryan Brinkerhoff: Well, it— it— The protocol really depends on their overall uhm—

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Uhmhm—

Ryan Brinkerhoff: How they are healthwise, right?

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Uhmhm—

Ryan Brinkerhoff: So if they…

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Yup.

Ryan Brinkerhoff: …were extremely healthy before they got the concussion, uhm— we start everybody out and about the same level. So, we put them in a Hyperbaric Chamber for an hour. We’ll adjust their Oxygen to uh— a specific level, and then we’ll monitor how they do throughout the session, and then when they get out. Because, as you all know, you can give somebody too much…

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Uhmhm—

Ryan Brinkerhoff: …Oxygen…

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Yup.

Ryan Brinkerhoff: …an you can have…

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Yes.

Ryan Brinkerhoff: …side effects like headaches and Vertigo kick in. So, we— we basically have a process where we are just monitoring our patients all the way through their hyperbaric sessions, and, as essentially, bump people into that 90 minutes uhm— sessions. And that’s the 45-minute to the 90-minute mark is where all the stem cell production happen. So we love to keep our patients in that Goldilocks zone, as long as we possibly can, but we can’t jump right to 90 minutes because then we, in a risk, you know, give them too much Oxygen and have those side effects of— of— of that. So—

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: I understand. So, regarding, like, the timing of it, you’re not gonna have to worry about the over Oxygen saturation that you  keep it 90 minutes or below essentially?

Ryan Brinkerhoff: Right, yeah. Yep. That’s exactly right.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Okay. So if this frequency starts 90-minute session, right— like what’s that look like? Everyday, you’re gonna be coming in for the next month? What would that frequency look like if someone had a significant trauma?

Ryan Brinkerhoff: Uh— So, if it’s significant, we recommend that they come in five (5) days a week. Uhm—

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Okay.

Ryan Brinkerhoff: And— And the other thing, my— my company does is we actually offer rental units, so we will take Hyperbaric chambers right to somebody’s home.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Oh, wow.

Ryan Brinkerhoff: So, if—if they don’t live in the St. George area, or they’re in a situation where they can’t travel in everyday, w—we’ll put a chamber right in their home so they can get that, you know, health that they need right there from the comfort of their own home.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Oh, that’s great. And then, regarding that, so someone comes in, they’re gonna be doing this probably at least for a month, and then…

Ryan Brinkerhoff: Right.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: …basically the Oxygen, you said, is helping with the stem cell production. It’s helping with Oxygenation. It’s reducing inflammation. What other mechanisms neurologically is it affecting?

Ryan Brinkerhoff: So, one of the really cool ones uhm— that they— they discovered a few years ago was it actually upregulates uhm—the antioxidants in your body.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Uhmhm—

Ryan Brinkerhoff: So, when I first started studying Hyperbarics, you know, everybody’s always worried about Oxygenate damage in the body.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Yes.

Ryan Brinkerhoff: And— So, they did a study, and after the first session they saw a little rise i—in free radical damage. But then after that, they saw those numbers dropped and they continue to drop throughout all the treatments so it’s stimulates your body to use antioxidants more effectively. So that’s where the other amazing things at Hyperbarics does.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: And can you use Hyperbarics for like Wellness Care? Like let’s say you’re somet— like— like myself or yourself— You’re already in good health. Could you use his type of therapy just to accelerate your health or improve your health? [incomprehensible]

Ryan Brinkerhoff: Oh! [crosstalk] Yeah. You sure can. So, I have uh— a couple gentlemen here that are getting older. They’re clinical psychologists, and they notice their—their brain wasn’t as sharp as it used to be before they get a lot of brain fog. Well, anytime when they have big meetings coming up or they’re doing podcasts—thing like that—they’ll come in and get the chambers beforehand, go out, and then just chill. Their memory gets i—insanely sharp. The one gentlemen uhm—had failed his last two uh—pre-Dementia screenings. He came in and did about 60 sessions, went back and took those same screenings again, and just aced them.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Oh, wow!

Ryan Brinkerhoff: So— Yeah.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: And what about professional athletes? Are you seeing a lot of athletes that are, you know, putting their body into wear and tear, just sleeping on these things or utilize them a—as an acceleration to help their body heal?

Ryan Brinkerhoff: Right. Yeah. So we do— We see a ton of marathoners share uh— St. George is a big area. We have an Iron Man competition here…

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Uhmhm—

Ryan Brinkerhoff: …and also tons of marathons throughout the year. So, I have a group of marathoners every time when the races are coming up. They’ll come and start hitting the Hyperbarics about a week before. They’ll hit their PR’s and their marathons, and then they’ll come in about a week afterwards to help their bodies heal up from the strain the race put them through. So I always see that with a lot of CrossFit athletes as well.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Oh, excellent! And how did you actually get into this field? Because uh—This is your uh—Were you in the health field before you jumped in the Hyperbarics?

Ryan Brinkerhoff: No. I actually was and I was actually in the computer technology world. Mainly, uhm—

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Oh!

Ryan Brinkerhoff: …you know, like the in—in the oil industry. Uhm— Hyperbarics all came about, for me, from having been stricken once a disease that, depending on what neurologist I saw, was either ALS or MS, uhm— Uh—It turns out I have Lyme’s disease.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Okay.

Ryan Brinkerhoff: That’s why I get a ton [crosstalk] of interventions to try to get myself back to full levels of health.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Right.

Ryan Brinkerhoff: And I could only get about 80%. It was the best I could achieve. And then, once I got in a Hyperebarics and I just saw my—my health accelerate to— to where it is now, I now have no symptoms, whatsoever. So—

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Oh, wow!

Ryan Brinkerhoff: It would really integral part of giving me back to—to where I am today.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Are there any adjunct therapies that you think are very synergistic to combining with Hyperbarics, or maybe therapies that you do combine with Hyperbarics at your clinic already?

Ryan Brinkerhoff: Uhm— Yeah. So there is a machine called the beamer. Uhm—

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Yeah.

Ryan Brinkerhoff: It’s a Bemer. And it basically—

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: P-E-M-F basically, right? Pulse Electromagnetic Frequency?

Ryan Brinkerhoff: That’s it. That’s…

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Yeah.

Ryan Brinkerhoff: …the one. And uhm— So it— it stimulates microcirculation, right? So we have our clientele. Well, some of them will get in on the Bemer…

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Uhmhm—

Ryan Brinkerhoff: … before they get in. Really open up those capillaries, get everything ready, and then we throw them in a Hyperbaric chamber and it seems to quantify the power and affects the— the other chambers.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Excellent. So when you combine these therapies, you typically do a Hyperbarics first and then do the P-E-M-F second?

Ryan Brinkerhoff: No. We do the P-E-M-F first to—to really open everything up…

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Yeah.

Ryan Brinkerhoff: And then we throw them in Hyperbaric chambers afterwards.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Very good. Do you have any good case studies that you typically, you know, any—any recent patient success stories that you want to share?

Ryan Brinkerhoff: Uhm—  Yes. So, one thing we do at our clinic is we will donate our Hyperbaric chambers’ time to local veterans…

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Right.

Ryan Brinkerhoff: …when they are not being used by our paid customers. Uhm— On our website, insideoouthyperbarics.com, we have uh— a testimonial on there from uh— a vet who, basically, was suffering from PTSD so bad that his whole life is falling apart. And uh—after about 30 sessions, he was back working again, and after about 90 sessions, he’s completely healed. He’s got a job. He just graduated with high marks from Dixie State University here, and he’s just loving and living life again. And he will be the first one to tell you it was all Hyperbarics that helped healed his brain and get him back to that point.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Excellent. Are there any nutritional strategies that you combine with it or diet or lifestyle strategies? Someone comes in, obviously if you’re just eating McDonalds or crappy food…

Ryan Brinkerhoff: Yeah.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: …uhm— i— it may just kind of be like an uphill battle utilizing a therapeutic modality when there’s so much crap going on in their life. How do you combine other healthy lifestyle or diet habits? And what kind of things you recommend?

Ryan Brinkerhoff: Yeah. So we have a dietician that uhm— is on staff here that actually teaches at the local college here, too. She’s a professor there. And, yeah, and you’re 100% right. I tell people over time. And you come in here and we’re eliminating inflammation, and then you go out and you get your McDonalds, or you …

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Right.

Ryan Brinkerhoff: …drink soda cups, you’re counteracting everything that we’ve just done. So, we like to get people on a very good diet. We do tons of supplementation after we checked blood work. We also look at genetics, too, to see if MTHFR and COMT and a bunch of these things are playing roles in— in— in their health. And so we build a whole program around the individual. We don’t have a set program for everybody. We work at everybody as an individual, and it’s up to us to design a program for them. And then we follow through with that program.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Are there any objective measurements that you combine with the Hyperbaric therapy? Do you do any like SPECT Scan or like uhm— or like the type of scan that uhm— SPECT Scan that the Daniel Amen does, or do you do any EEG stuff or brain mapping before and after? What’s your experience with that?

Ryan Brinkerhoff: Uhm—So we have not done any brain imagery stuff yet.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Yeah.

Ryan Brinkerhoff: Uhm— I got a uh—a neurologist who wants to start doing some studies with us, but there’s actually a couple doctors out there that are really killing I right now, uhm— where you can actually go to their websites and look and see their brain images. And it just shows the brain is actually killing itself. I mean, one of the biggest lies I’ve seen and I was told when I was younger is uh—you know, you only got X amount of brain cells so you got to make sure you take care of them, right?

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Right.

Ryan Brinkerhoff: ‘Cause once they’re dead, they’re dead. And I always thought, “Well, you know, our liver is rebuilding itself constantly.” [crosstalk] “Our kidneys, why is [incomprehensible]—”

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: …[crosstalk] nails, hair, skin, right?

Ryan Brinkerhoff: Yeah. Everything is rebuilding. A— And now, With— With, you know, SPECT Scans and things like that, they can actually show the brain is being repaired while you’re in a Hyperbaric chamber. This is one reason why NFL teams are now having hyperbaric facilities installed at all their training facilities. You get a head injury, everybody’s worried about CT now. Well, you get a concussion, they’re gonna throw you right in the hyperbaric chamber because it’s proven to actually heal the brain.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: What other nutrients do you combine with it from a supplement standpoint? Do you any of the— the uh—Resveratrol or the Alpha-GPC compounds I’ve seen some interesting research on— on those really helping to cool and quiet the inflammation for all/some of these Nerve-2 compounds like Green Tea, Ashwagandha. What supplements have you seen the best success with it, you use in conjunction with the hyperbarics?

Ryan Brinkerhoff: Well, you mentioned a couple of them right there.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Yep.

Ryan Brinkerhoff: …is Vestrol is uh—  one that we use. And we always put every uhm—every one of our patients on uhm—anti oxidants…

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Yeah.

Ryan Brinkerhoff: …a really good antioxidants formula, just to make sure that they have everything there in place so they can combat the oxidative stress and get out with that.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Right.

Ryan Brinkerhoff: So—

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: And what kind of antioxidants outside of like your Vitamin A, D, and K. Anything else uh— specifically?

Ryan Brinkerhoff: Those are actually the main ones that we use. Uhm—I was actually hoping to get with you and see if you could help throw me together a little protocol uh—for that as well, ‘cause I know you understand those things better than most— anybody else I listen to on the internet. So, I was— I was gonna try to collaborate with you to develop uh—this specific supplement.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Ye—Yeah. I think there are some— definitely some good compounds in there. Uhm—the alpha-GPC compounds are excellent. The uh—The Nerve-II compounds, the Green Tea, the Curcumin, the Resveratrol, a lot of the Mitochondrial uh—nutrients like the Carnitine, and the Ribose, just because there’s a lot of Mitochondria density in the brain. And when these…

Ryan Brinkerhoff: Right.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: …tissues get injured, right— we need Oxygen for the Mitochondria, but we also need some of these nutrients and— to help combat the oxidative stress. So, yeah, that’s— That sounds great. That sounds awesome.

Ryan Brinkerhoff: Yeah. Yeah, it’s— It’s— It’s good stuff.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: And was there anything else that you wanted to highlight? Like, what are like— Like, what are the top three peop— What are the top three like average patients? What are they coming in for? Is it just, they bump their head, or is it just like, “Hey, they’re having some brain fog or Alzheimer’s, Dementia”? What are you typically seeing?

Ryan Brinkerhoff: Uhm— So, in an average day, we’ll probably see four to five different types of disease processes that people are trying to get help with. Of course, we have the athletes coming in for that— you know, that edge that they can get by using Hyperbaric chambers. But, for instance, one thing that we’ve seen a lot with lately is GI issues. Uhm—

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Hmm—

Ryan Brinkerhoff: There—There’s actually a ton of research now being done with hyperbarics and GI issues, and it all came apart as a— a— a scientist, whose wife have gotten a car accident. She got a major concussion, had some problems, and so, he started throwing her a Hyperbaric chamber. But as he was going a lot to her sessions, he noticed that her symptoms of Crohn’s disease was starting to disappear.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Mm—

Ryan Brinkerhoff: And— And he talked in front about this and everything like that. And then, as uh— Rice University and the University of Israel, combined on a study that takes a bunch of people with IBS problems, put them in Hyperbaric chambers and see what happened. And it was 80% uhm— or higher that these people were getting reduction with their symptoms or complete elimination. So, now, I’ve been doing a lot of radio spots about that and we are starting to see a lot more focus come to the doors with— with, you know, intestinal issues. Uhm—Another big one we see is brain fog. So, you’ll have people that come in that are tired, wore out, and one of their main symptoms is they’ll have brain fog. Well, when you get tons of fuel in the brain and the central nervous system, the body starts running at a lot higher level. And so they’ll see their brain fog a—and fatigue issues disappear for a week after only one session. So it’s a great pick-me-up for— for those folks who are looking forward to it.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Oh, wow! That’s great. Yeah. I have seen research on the fact that if, yeah, brain trauma or head trauma…

Ryan Brinkerhoff: Right.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: …a lot of times, the brain, if there’s injury to it, and inflammation, it can actually cause leaky gut. Like a lot of people know, like, “Okay. I eat gluten, I have an infection. I have food allergens like that, leaky gut, ken— kind of those immune compounds can create the bloodstream make their way to the brain and create brain inflammation and brain fog.

Ryan Brinkerhoff: Right.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: But it can also work the other direction. If we have impact or inflammation stress that hits the brain directly, that can easily drive gut permeability then create more gut issues. So that makes sense because if this is the root issue that cause it all, [crosstalk] and we get that better, that could help with the gut permeability down south.

Ryan Brinkerhoff: Yeah. It’s funny that you mentioned that, too, because when I uh— when I got super sick, I—I fell and got a—a really bad concussion. And then I develop Rheumatoid arthritis probably about two (2) weeks after that, which I never had, and it turned out it was an issue with gluten at that point. [crosstalk] When I put away the gluten, the RA went away, but I never had that problem with the gluten in ‘til I got that major concussion. So, I— I didn’t know they were studying that but I just answer the question, for me, I’ve had for a very long time.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Absolutely. So if there was like— there wasn’t a lot of gut issues, but then the head stuff happened first, that could be the root issues. That—That’s great. So, someone walks into your clinic, what’s your clinic like? How many Hyperbaric chambers do you have? Someone walks in, is— is— what’s the tip of— I know, it’s gonna be customized, right? But, what’s the typical protocol? Three times a week, 60-90 minutes? Ad, how many people can you service at once in your clinic?

Ryan Brinkerhoff: So we have three (3) chambers here right now, and plus we have nine rental chambers out there in the field.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Hmm—

Ryan Brinkerhoff: So uhm— i— in-house, uh— pretty much all day long, we’ll have one to two of our chambers running at all times, and a lot of times. And then half of the day, we’re pretty much booked up. So folks who come in, uhm—we will get them square away. We do a very extensive medical history because I want to know, you know, are you working in a chemical plant. I want to know a lot about your lifestyle and everything like that so we can help address that. But on a day-to-day basis, uhm—we just have folks coming in. Usually three times a week is what we recommend uhm—unless there are serious, serious issues going on, and then we’ll recommend folks come in five (5) days a week.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: If someone needs to rent a unit from you but let’s say they’re not in Utah, is it possible for you to get them set up with the rental? Do they have to be relatively local?

Ryan Brinkerhoff: Right. So we— we travel about ten-hour area anywhere from Southern Utah, but I’m working with a company right now to get it s— set up with some little containers. Because now I way you have just the Hyperbaric chamber. You got to ship. Do you have the Oxygen concentrator to compress…

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Right.

Ryan Brinkerhoff: …with everything like that. So—

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: That could be explosive, right— if it’s compressed like that? [laughs]

Ryan Brinkerhoff: Right. Yeah. So, well, we don’t use compressed Oxygen. We use at what they called concentrator.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Okay.

Ryan Brinkerhoff: So, the ambient air takes all the Nitrogen— everything else— out of it, and then just push a straight Oxygen to the— to our patients.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Excellent. So I think we hit over, you know, a lot of the major benefits of Hyperbarics and how could it be applied and who are some of the best candidates, right? We talked about uhm—strokes. We talked about concussions, brain trauma, brain inflammation, potentially, even kids that have Autism as well, right?

Ryan Brinkerhoff: Uh— Right, yeah.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Minor brain inflammation— Is there any other person that this type of therapy’s a good fit for?

Ryan Brinkerhoff: Uhm— Anybody that’s just trying to take their health to that next level.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Uhmhm—

Ryan Brinkerhoff: Uhm—Like, me with Lyme’s disease, for instance. It’s known in—in the clinical literature now that it is a juggernaut against microbes ‘cause most of the nasty microbes are anaerobic.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Right.

Ryan Brinkerhoff: And haven’t I actually live in the blood, so when you’re putting that Oxygen right into the plasma, you are not only sending uh— a life source for yourself but you’re actually killing microbes off extremely faster in the blood. So, uhm— And like I said, I—I got to a plateau. I got about 80%. I was stuck there for about three (3) years. And then, once I started the Hyperbarics, it was just the icing on the cake. Not only, I think, eliminating microbes but also getting my body functioning the way it did prior to the infection.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Excellent. Very cool. And is there any other information that you think is important  or that we haven’t quite gone over yet that you want to highlight before we go?

Ryan Brinkerhoff: Uhm— One of the main things— I mean, pretty much the main thing I’d like to highlight is Hyperbarics are amazing. They do a lot of wonderful things, but I don’t want anybody to think they can just, you know, go visit a Hyperbaric clinic somewhere and, magically, everything’s gonna change in their body.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Right.

Ryan Brinkerhoff: You’ll see some benefit but the— the holistic of addressing every part of healing is what really, really is the cornerstone that anybody getting better in any situation. So, uh— I don’t want folks to be misled, thinking I’m saying Hyperbarics can fix everything ‘cause it won’t. But I think it is an integral part o— of somebody’s healing modality if they’d like to try it.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: That’s great. Well, if you’re in the St. George, Utah area, insideouthyperbarics— with an “s”. We’ll put the link down there below. Is there any other avenues or social media places where people could find you online?

Ryan Brinkerhoff: Yeah. We have uhm—Facebook. We got our uh—Inside Out Hyperbarics and Wellness Center. Uhm— And I think we got a YouTube page up as well, where you’ll see a bunch of our videos. It’s just Inside Out Hyperbarics. And uh— we a lot of radio stuff, and hopefully, more podcast stuff with— with folks like you.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Oh, great. Awesome, Ryan. Well, I appreciate you jumping on the show here today and dropping some good knowledge bombs. I thank you for everything, and you have a phenomenal day.

Ryan Brinkerhoff: Thanks, Dr. J. Well, see you later.

Dr. Justin Marchegiani: Thank you.

Ryan Brinkerhoff: Bye.
