Aviv Clinics: Novel Hyperbaric Treatment for Healthy Aging
Dr. Mohammed Elamir
“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” is a quote that best exemplifies Aviv Clinics’ value proposition.
The startup has introduced a novel, scientifically backed delivery of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) to improve, and in many cases, reverse the adverse effects of aging, especially on the cognitive impairments front. The Aviv Medical Program is an individualized three-month regimen that combines HBOT sessions, cognitive and physical training, and augmented with nutritional and lifestyle coaching to leverage the body’s receptive mode. In-depth assessments, analytics and a full physiologic evaluation result in a comprehensive plan that is customized to each client’s health improvement goals.
In the Hyperbaric Suite, the pressure is equivalent to that at 33 feet under sea level, which increases the oxygen levels in the client’s bodies by around 15 times. This brings the gas to the cells that need it, replenishing tissues, especially in the brain that has long been deprived of adequate quantities of oxygen due to chronic destruction of micro blood vessels. Aviv’s HBOT procedure entails having the client inhale100% pure oxygen for 20 minutes through a mask, followed by a five-minute mask off, breathing of the ambient air inside the chamber that contains oxygen in normal concentrations. This protocol triggers a physiological change where the body, having experienced breathing higher levels of oxygen while the mask is on, perceives the five-minute mask off “air break” as a relative low oxygen state. In this relative low oxygen state, the body anticipates cell death triggering the production of stem cells—the holy grail of cellular regeneration—to naturally heal or rebuild any type of tissue, including blood vessels that transport blood to the brain.
“Our main clients tend to be the healthy aging individuals who are begin to notice a gradual decline in their motor or cognitive activities. We also cater to people suffering traumatic brain injury, concussion, stroke, fibromyalgia, Lyme disease, and PTSD. Practically any one above 18 is suitable for the program if their goals are related to the biological processes that happens with aging,” says Dr. Mohammed Elamir, MD, Aviv Clinics, Florida.
What differentiates Aviv is their client-centric methodology in delivering their therapy. First, Aviv conducts comprehensive one-on-one consultations with inquiring clients to see if the therapy could potentially work for them. “We will go over the individual’s goals, what they’re trying to accomplish and what they’ve identified as cognitive and physical improvements needed to enjoy an independent lifestyle,” says Dave Globig, CEO, Aviv Clinics, Florida. This is followed by a multi-day rigorous, in-depth medical assessment process that includes blood work, cardiovascular testing, and numerous analyses around physical performance, genetics and body composition.

“Cognitive testing is done to evaluate brain functions related to memory, information processing speed, attention, executive function and motor skills,” adds Globig.
Regarded as a measurement for cellular aging, Aviv conducts the technologically advanced telomere measurement. Telomeres are essentially caps at the end of chromosomes which are designed to protect the DNA when it replicates. With age and continued cell division, telomeres get shorter, leaving the chromosome vulnerable, at which point the cell ceases to divide. Cells then become what the medical community terms as non-productive, senescent cells that can cause age-related cognitive decline, chronic conditions, and even cancer in some cases.
We are successful because the delivery method of our hyperbaric treatment is different, backed by rigorous research and science and provides biological improvements that cannot be obtained via tents or mono chambers
In addition to the overall physiological and physical improvements, we typically see lengthening of telomeres and a decrease in the senescent cells. This shows that Aviv’s proprietary HBOT can reverse the biology of aging. Beyond the hyperbaric treatments, the Aviv Medical Program caters to client’s overall health needs, including physical conditioning and dietary support. Aviv’s program even includes comprehensive medical evaluation and remediation of any other client issues. Naturally, the life-changing instances to Aviv’s credit are aplenty. The company has helped numerous older people regain their lost cognitive edge and many in recovering from chronic pain and physical impairments.
Aviv and its novel medical program is the fruit of pioneering research by the company’s Founder, Dr. Shai Efrati, Director of the Sagol Center for Hyperbaric Medicine and Research at the Shamir Medical Center, one of Israel’s leading teaching hospitals. World-renowned in the field of hyperbaric treatment and its effects on reversing aging, Dr. Efrati’s work is widely recognized and soughtafter in Israel and internationally, so much so that Aviv Clinics was founded to meet the demand. In a short span since inception in 2017, Aviv has established clinics in Florida and Dubai and plans to broaden their presence internationally. “We are successful because the delivery method of our hyperbaric treatment is different, and backed by rigorous R&D, unlike other players that leverage tents and mono chambers. We take an interdisciplinary complete approach that truly revolves around our clients,” concludes Dr. Elamir.
