Breathing Life into Healing

THANK YOU to everyone who has supported, followed and benefited the work of Restorix Foundation.  In our first 2 years, we funded 2 significant clinical research studies conducted by Restorix Research Institute and the Western Institutional Review Board (WIRB) and helped to advance the use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy usages.  Our 2 completely funded studies were: Using HBOT to treat a veteran with TBI (which yielded numerous positive results) and investigating whether or not HBOT can increase stem cell production, which provided scientific data to aid further research. 

We have also partnered with numerous groups in the community to help educate about HBOT and it's use with diabetes, brain injury, spinal cord injury and more.  At this time, however, there are no longer HBOT research groups in the area for us to partner with and we are closing the Foundation.  We encourage you to support HBOT research in the future and we are advocating donations to one of our community partners: Pushing Boundaries (a 501c3) in Redmond, WA. Pushing Boundaries provides intensive exercise therapy to regain function for those paralyzed due to illness, injury, or other neurological disorders. 



Jeff completes 40 HBOT Treatments with great results as part of Operation: Head Home.  THANK YOU everyone who played a part in his successful participation in this research and we hope to take more qualified  Veterans through Op: Head Home.

A shout out to the following lodging providers who donated lodging for Jeff so he can be close to Island Hospital for treatment:  Nantucket Inn (Anacortes), Islands Inn, Fidalgo Country Inn and Swinomish Casino and Lodge.   And thanks to everyone who has contributed to date, including  Triumph Group-Seattle and supporting our cause.

Learn more about our latest project,  Operation: Head Home  where we are raising funds to cover the costs of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Treatments (HBOT) for a brain-injured veteran who qualifies to participate in a National Brain Injury Rescue and Rehabilitation (NBIRR) study.  Watch the Q13 Fox video featuring former Marine Sgt. Jeff Brennan and hear his story and why we want to help. Visit our fundraising page at
