The article discusses an alternative-healing modality that builds up regeneration potential by electromagnetically stimulating inert gases. Several studies have documented xenon's neuroprotective potential but it was also found to inhibit neurotransmitter flow. The author believes the xenon will eventually play a huge therapeutic role in minimizing damae after neurological injury.
