Lyme and Hyperbaric Medicine: The Case of Debbie Curras
Debbie Curras is a 46-year-old woman who suffers from Lyme. She visited us at the Hyperbaric Center in Estepona since Germany had recommended this treatment as a complement to treat her ailment and help her improve in the day to day.
“I knew hyperbaric medicine when I went to Germany to be treated for my ailment. There the German doctors recommended hyperbaric oxygen as part of the treatment of my illness” Debbie Curras, patient of the Hyperbaric Center of Estepona.

Some of the effects of Lyme are arterial and muscular pain, although it affects more parts of the body as it is a multi-systemic disease. Other systems that may be affected are. Gastrointestinal, Pulmonary, Musculoskeletal or even can affect the reproductive system.
How Hyperbaric Medicine Helps Improve Lyme Symptoms
Thanks to Debbie Curras’ testimony, we can see first-hand the beneficial effects of oxygen therapy in treating Lyme disease.
“I have had Lyme disease for six and a half years. And this is one of the treatments that is helping me the most.
And he keeps telling us how he’s helping him with one of Lyme’s outbreaks:
“When I come here for hyperbaric medicine treatments it’s because either I have a known outbreak of the disease, which is the outbreak that produces the toxin from the bacteria. The treatment helps me a lot to overcome those symptoms that are usually mental fatigue, tiredness and joint pain.
