I came to All Points North Lodge because I had been dealing with anxiety and depression pretty much my entire life. Then about three and a half years ago, my father died. I did CPR on him, and for the next three years, I dealt with PTSD on top of the anxiety and the depression. I have received hyperbaric therapy, I guess you would more consider it oxygen therapy. The facility here goes to depths that most “hyperbaric therapy” doesn’t go. My experience was almost immediate where I call it my fog of war, where my head’s very heavy, tons of anxiety, can’t remember even the most simple tasks. Probably the first week, I had much more focus, much more clarity, the fog of war disappeared. Certainly no depression, but a little bit of anxiety after the first week, but as the therapy progressed, I almost have none at all.
Before I came here, I was either going to end it or get help. Thankfully, I chose to get help. The facility here offers so many advantages of treatment, but definitely the hyperbaric has been a lifesaver for me. You flip on your favorite Netflix movie or series and relax, and you don’t really have a care in the world, you’re just kind of watching TV and letting the healing process happen. I for sure would recommend APN to family and friends, or really anyone who … I’d hate to see somebody get to the point that I did, where they lost hope and hope that they would jump in to getting their traumas brought to the surface and dealing with anxiety and depression in a healthy way. I believe hyperbaric is something that everyone that deals with that should try.
