Has anyone used or heard of oxygen therapy as an additional method of fighting pancreatic cancer. I understand OXY E is a supplement which supports intracellular oxygenation.

@lgk2948, it might seem to make sense. We need oxygen to live, so more oxygen is good right? Maybe not.
Here's some information I found
– Busting myths: Can hyperbaric oxygen treat cancer? https://www.cancercenter.com/community/blog/2018/06/busting-myths-can-hyperbaric-oxygen-treat-cancer
"Clinical trials continue to study oxygen therapy’s ability to treat cancer and some of the side effects of cancer surgery and other treatments. But for now, Dr. Jaber says: "There is no therapeutic role for oxygen in cancer. Presenting higher than normal concentrations of oxygen to treat cancer has not been proven scientifically to kill the disease.""
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is a well-established treatment for decompression sickness, a potential risk of scuba diving. Other conditions treated with hyperbaric oxygen therapy include:
– Serious infections.
– Bubbles of air in blood vessels.
– Wounds that may not heal because of diabetes or radiation injury.
Supplements are not controlled by FDA or regulated by health authorities. I found no information to support the use of Oxy E. Even the manufacturer doesn't claim that it helps with cancer. If it sounds too good to be true, it's likely not true.
I strongly recommend talking to your oncologist before adding any supplements to your treatment plan. Some supplements may reduce the effectiveness of your treatments.
