Next to Apple Cider Vinegar, hydrogen peroxide therapy ranks up there as one of the best household remedies.
Besides the obvious (cleansing wounds), did you know that hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is probably the best remedy to dissolve ear wax? Yep, and H2O2 therapy is used around the world to prevent the flu. Athletes also use hydrogen peroxide to build stamina. Additionally, we have received several emailed reports that hydrogen peroxide therapy has cured melanoma, prostate and mesothelioma (asbestos) cancers.
The History of Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy
Ted from Bangkok writes, "Yes, the pharmaceuticals are threatened by hydrogen peroxide cures! Last time, about 120 years ago (during the reign of Queen Victoria), people in India (a British colony then) found that Hydrogen peroxide added in small amounts to drinking water cured a variety of sickness especially colds, flu, cholera, malaria, etc. H2O2 threatened the British monopoly drug sales, so they issued a fake news alert by hiring a news reporter disguised as a doctor to put out the information to the effect that taking hydrogen peroxide causes viral brain damage. It sounded believable, but the child who died of the hydrogen peroxide caused viral brain damage was non-existent.
It worked and the people in India went back to buying British drugs, while suppressing India's own Ayurvedic medicine from any sales. It is amazing that Ayurvedic medicine actually survived under British threat for more than 200 years of occupation!
It has happened during the Queen Victoria era, and now it is happening again. History repeats itself, only this time, we now have the internet, which at least for now, the information is free. No doubt, freedom of information is something we just have to always be vigilant and fight for."
STORING FOOD GRADE H202
9/2/2007: Jake from Chicago, Il writes: "Sara in Atlanta said she stores 35% H2O2 in the freezer. In one manufacturer's write up this is specifically warned against lest it break down. Storage of hydrogen peroxide is recommended in a dark cool place like the refrigerator where the loss of potency per year is minor - according to them about 1% or so per year."

Checking for Stabilizers in H2O2
Ted from Bangkok: "There is a simple way to see if Hydrogen Peroxide contains stabilizers: Pour 1/2 cap of hydrogen peroxide in a glass of water. If the color has yellow (or other off colors), it has a stabilizer. It is best to set it out in the sun where it is easier to see. If the hydrogen peroxide (H202) remains colorless when mixed in a glass of water, it usually does not have a stabilizer.
Almost all H2O2 sold in drug stores will have stabilizers, actually to discourage people to use them internally. So you can use this as a way to compare them. Basically, hydrogen peroxide poured into a clean glass and left out in a sun covered by a dish should not have air bubbles. If it does, there are metal contaminants. If you are asking for trouble, a drop of ammonia solution in H2O2 mixed in water will cause a rapid air bubble generation. It is more unstable if it has stabilizers. You can try the experiment and compare the results.
The test for this is not perfect one, but the key is the color, even when you add just a small amount of water in direct sunlight. Also, a good quality H2O2 doesn't get small bubbles during storage.
By the way, an easy way to test the quality of your drinking water is to add 10% of 3% H2O2 to 90% Water and perform the test by noticing air bubbles. If there are a lot of air bubbles for the next 6 hours, then the water has either too much organic residues OR heavy metals. During the test please keep in places AWAY from children. After the test immediately discard the contents into the sink. Ted"
09/14/2007: Ron from Temiskaming Shores, Canada writes: "Great site. I wanted to put my 2 cents in about Hydrogen Pyroxide (HP). I went to Wal-Mart to purchase some HP and when I got it home I noticed that my bottle of HP had the skull and cross bones on the front of it. Yikes!! The lable reads "POISON" because this particular brand contains stablizers. The previous brand that I bought did not have stablizers in it and did not have the skull and cross bones symbol on the front. I dont't think I want to try to ingest the poison type of HP. I think readers should be made aware that there is a difference and to be careful when buying HP, to make sure they find one without stablizers."
09/17/2007: Ted from Bangkok replies, "Remedies require food grade H2O2 except in instances of external use. H2O2 can't be labelled poison if it is for external use (as in antiseptics) since other contact poisons go directly through the skin killing you. Stabilizers can't do this. Most labeling no longer uses the skull and bones, at least not on H2O2, since hydrogen peroxide more often causes skin burns only if used in high concentration and are classified as caustic solutions. Even hydrochloric acid might also be considered a poison, but our stomach produce plenty of it. I don't think labels are consistent in classifying it"

12/29/2011: Sweeta from Austin, Tx replies: "I got some info about using hydrogen peroxide internally as a douche, however I did not research and for two days have been using a non measured dose of hp (the kind that was a dollar at the pharmacy) with distilled water. What is the damage that could be done?"
02/19/2012: Joe from San Diego, California USA replies: "I read the post regarding stabilzers and bought the 3% drug store type from Wal Mart & Kogers. I didn't think there were any it the product because listed on the label under inactive ingredient it only says purified water on both bottles. Also did the sunlight test and bubble test and both bottles passed. After ingesting H202 for a couple of days I called the poisen info. # on the back of the bottle and they had no information but advised against ingesting. The Kroger's bottle had a product information 800 number that I called. I asked if the product contained stablizers and in about one minute I had an answer. The kind women read off about five chemical stablizers and additives that were not listed on the label. As soon as I hung up I went online and ordered 35% Food Grade H202. I did use the rest of the two bottles to put in my bath. To those of you who posted that you are drinking the 3% H202 from your local CVS. Rite Aid's or Walgreens I highly recommend you check out what's in it before you continue drinking it."
05/10/2012: Wendy from Silsbee, Tx replies: "When buying the Food Grade H202 it has to be bought online. It cannot be bought in stores, the food grade H202 is 35%, yes it may be more costly, but it's better to be safe than sorry using regular peroxide. Mixing the H202 with a 8oz. glass of distilled water and drinking it daily has proven to help someone with cancer, to this day he is still free of cancer."
05/15/2012: Sheena from Granville, Ohio replies: "Hi Wendy and others: Food grade (35% H2O2) most definitely can be bought in health food stores--that is where I get mine. Call around."
06/10/2012: Ja-nell from Philadelphia, Pa replies: "You can also purchase some off of amazon. Com, which is where I get mine. I used it to cure my athletes foot. And to the person above me, I went to Denison University, so yay for Granville, OH lol. Best of luck everyone, this is great stuff."
07/09/2012: Joyce from Lansdowne, Pa replies: "Did you dilute the HP? I have used it as a douche but diluted it 1part HP to 3 parts water. I did not have a problem."
07/09/2012: Brettina from Irvine, Ca. replies: "Hi readers, I just need let you know that I was looking for a homemade douche solution online and found one that said to use HP. My first thought was, "How could that be when it says right on the bottle to only use externally?" My first thought was quickly replaced by the intrigue of what I was reading. I tried it immediately and before I was done pumping it inside, I began to cramp and then bleed. I have been bleeding, not heavily, for a day now. I feel so stupid, but fooled at the same time. Please help."
07/14/2012: Kabee from Elyria, Oh replies: "In response to the woman who is now bleeding from using H2O2 as a douche... Perhaps she has vaginal polyps and the instrument used to administer the douche broke open the polyp and she is experiencing the bleeding from the disturbed polyp. In any case, she should see her GYN immediately!"
Colds and Flu
Earth Clinic : "We heard about this practice years ago. It is reportedly a common practice in India and Germany... During flu season, fill the cap of a bottle of hydrogen peroxide with the liquid, lay down on your side, and pour it into one ear. After a few seconds, the liquid will bubble. Lay with the peroxide fizzing for 5 or 10 minutes, then shake the peroxide out. Repeat on the other ear. This remedy is supposed to cures colds that are already in progress - causing the symptoms to begin to clear up within a few hours. Note: If the virus has been in your blood for some time, this will not work!
Earth Clinic Report
11/21/2006: Earth Clinic : "True enough, if a $.79 home remedy jeopardizes the multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical and medical industries, there will be an effort to squash it as either dangerous, ineffective, or both. Since July (when we started to receive anti-H202 emails), more articles are appearing on the internet and in magazines about the dangers and ineffectiveness of drinking hydrogen peroxide as reported by the FDA. The latest article we just read came from Consumer Reports, December 2006, page 53. They devote an entire column to the dangers of hydrogen peroxide. The title: "Safety Alert: Hydrogen Peroxide Isn't For Drinking". The article references several websites promoting H202 as a cure for cancer. No doubt the author came to this page too!
To quote from the article: "The idea behind ingesting hydrogen peroxide stems from a now-discredited theory that cancer and AIDS thrive on a lack of oxygen in the body."
Ummmm, discredited by what studies? Show us!
According to the FDA, when taken orally H202 might cause gastrointestinal irritation or ulcers. Hey, so does ibuprofen, which also causes acid reflux in people. We seriously doubt there are many people foolish enough to swallow large quantities of peroxide and suffer these purported side effects. (The standard dosage for food grade peroxide is 3-4 drops per 8 oz of distilled water.) If there are indeed people suffering side effects from these minute dosages, we'd like to see the reports.
4/1/2007: Below is one case sent to us today by Anonymous from New York City, NY. Here is the link to this abstract.
1: J Emerg Med. 2006 May;30(4):403-6. Hemorrhagic gastritis and gas emboli after ingesting 3% hydrogen peroxide.
Moon JM, Chun BJ, Min YI.
Department of Emergency Medicine, Chonnam National University Hwasun Hospital and Chonnam Medical School, Gwangju, South Korea.
It is well known that ingestion of low concentrations of hydrogen peroxide is usually nontoxic; this does not produce gas embolism and is only a mild irritant to the gastrointestinal tract. We report the case of a 25-year-old woman who ingested one mouthful of 3% hydrogen peroxide and presented to the Emergency Department with persistent vomiting and epigastric pain. The radiographic evaluation found portal venous gas emboli. In addition, upper gastrointestinal endoscopy performed 2 h after ingestion revealed diffuse hemorrhagic gastritis. She showed a decrease of hemoglobin concentration and a positive test result for occult blood in stool. She was observed for 14 days and discharged. Follow-up endoscopy showed erythematous gastritis. This case illustrates that a low concentration of hydrogen peroxide can cause portal venous gas embolism and severe gastrointestinal injuries even if only a small amount is ingested."
4/2/2007: Ted from Bangkok writes, "No one uses 1% concentration for internal purposes either. So 3% is way beyond that.
In the alternative health field, the maximum is actually 0.5% concentration. Actually and optimum H2O2 concentration was first determined in 1950s by Dr. Reginald Holman by implanting Walker 256 adenocarcinoma tumours. The drinking water for the rat used H2O2 optimum concentration needed to kill the tumors were about 0.45 percent.
Tumours completely disappeared in 15 to 60 days in rats. Of course a better way is to add 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda in the glass of 0.45% concentration of H2O2. This can be extended to treatment of almost any kinds of conditions, from virus, bacteria, microbial infections, pneumonia, tuberculosis, flu, etc. My own experience of using just baking soda (also increases the body's oxygen) and ascorbate vitamin C about three weeks for a small tumor to go into remission.
A more effective I think in the future of peroxide therapy is to add baking soda to the 0.45% concentration to normal drinking water since baking soda is alkaline and increases oxygen, while the peroxide furthers this natural increase. Ted"Replies
05/06/2012: Sarah Grace from Leonia, NJ replies: "And who, drinks a whole mouthful of the stuff??"
06/18/2012: Boubou from Southwest Harbor, Maine replies: "I am a reed instrument musician and keep a glass of regular drug store around to keep mouthpieces and reeds healthy. I have found the habit completely avoids mouth ulceration and cold sores which wind players often suffer from and which used to be the bain of my life.
My wife drank a glass of this by mistake. - she doesn't waste drinking water. There were no detectable effects whatsoever."
08/14/2012: Eludz from Saskatoon, Sk replies: "you people should be able to tell when a story is a hoax or not by now.. 'according to the FDA' ?? are you kidding me.. ?? you are posting things on this site where the majority of users would not believe a word the FDA says, not to mention when it's about something that is a complete threat to their goals.
obviously everyone on here has been talking about FOOD GRADE PEROXIDE, not 3% pharmaceutical stuff.. so why you are sitting here responding to someone that said show us the studies to do with debunking the FACT that cancer and AIDS thrive in low oxygen bodies more so than high oxygen bodies.."
"FOOD GRADE WARNINGS:
04/18/2006: John from Sault Ste Marie, MI writes, "I'd be very wary of recommending that anyone use 35% hydrogen peroxide unless they've had HAZMAT training or the equivalent. At that concentration H2O2 is extremely corrosive and causes severe burns; in other words, it's a very hazardous chemical that even professional chemists (and I am one) must handle using appropriate safety equipment (rubber gloves, safety goggles, protective lab coat). I know this from experience because I was badly burned by 35% H2O2 while carrying out chemistry research. It's irresponsible to imply that this stuff is harmless and to recommend it to people who have no experience handling hazardous materials."
04/10/2009: David from Tampa, FL writes, "I have used food grade H2O for years and if you do spill it on yourself just rinse with water for a few minutes - it will turn your skin white and it is temporary and there is no prolonged damage. Yes, you do have to be careful but not afraid."
EARTH CLINIC'S ADDITIONAL WARNING NOTE:
Please be very careful when transporting food grade hydrogen peroxide after the bottle has been opened. Make sure you keep the bottle upright. Once the seal has been removed upon opening, these caps can leak. Food grade will cause the skin to burn and turn white. Yes, we learned the hard way! Luckily, skin will return to normal after 30 minutes or less if you rinse off the peroxide quickly. By the way, the same whitening of skin effect happens when you dip your fingertips in drugstore 3% H202 for a minute or more. It too goes away within 30 minutes..."
[NAY] 02/16/2012: Yannick from Montreal, Quebec Canada replies: "I tested this because I been having chronic pains for the last 10 years, I had also read that it was amazing for anemia suffers, immune system boosting and since I live in Canada the winter time is filled with long periods of sickness and cold and flu.
I was anemic last year my numbers where at 134 I had all the effects, my medical doctor gave me palafer that fixed everything in 6 months I was back in regular values 150. So last summer I decided to lose weight I then started some intermittent fasting with H202 chart drops per day.
I mixed my H202 in distilled water and took it first thing in the morning. The first few days were not that bad, but when I got into higher dosage 8 and up I started to get a really upset stomach, pains, and even threw up a few times.
I went back to the doctor office in September for my yearly check up and blood test and found out that my anemia had crashed back to 139.
I changed the way I took H202 using the spray technic, I came down with a cold 3 weeks ago and decided to use it, stomach pain was intense, I also put some in my nose like suggested and it started to bleed.
I started doing lots of research on H202, being anemic and a man is simply not normal, I have been tested for cancer, HIV and everything came back negative.
Doing further reseach I found out that H202 destroys red blood cells and can lead to anemia, it causes corosion in the body, and destroy the intestinal flore.
I never experienced any of the so called benefits of H202 apart from getting sick when taking it. I did not get any hay fever allergy relief, no energy, no fat loss. For me this product is more of a snake oil pitch.
Most medical studies say you can die from it, well unless you ingest huge amount of it and not diluted you might, but I still do believe that there is danger using this."
03/01/2012: Infowarrior from Windsor, Ontario Canada replies: "Yannick, I'm sorry to hear about the health problems you are going through. Are you sure the H2O2 caused your problems? I know that a document I have says that if you have disease or candida issues, you will feel sick to your stomach at first because the bad bacteria in your body is being taken care of but the illness feeling should pass. This is the God's honest truth. My mother had surgery and had to be on oxygen right after. She was on oxygen for 4 years and was tested by doctors. They couldn't figure out why her oxygen levels were so low (even more so when walking with her walker) or how to fix it. I took a water bottle with 8 ounces of distilled water and put 1 drop of h2o2 in it. Then next 8 oz bottle got 2 until I got to the 10th bottle that had 10 drops. A year ago (at Christmas) she came home for a visit from the nursing home and she was on oxygen. They tested her when she got back to the nursing home and said she didn't need oxygen. We had them check her levels when walking and it was fine. She's been fine ever since. I had asked many times while taking it, if her stomach felt fine and she said yes. I had tried it before I gave it to her and had no problems. Now, I'll look into h2o2 destroying red blood cells but I'll tell you that this past summer, I gave her 10 oz of water with 22 drops in and she had no side effects.
I honestly don't know how adding an extra oxygen molecule to your body (water is h2o) could cause you harm. Isn't it important that we make sure our body is not oxygen starved? I really feel that you may have had some type of underlying issue but I'm not a doctor so I don't know. I would talk to a holistic expert that really knows their stuff on this. I'm just a guy who does tons of research on alternative health. I hope you get better."
04/24/2012: Maria from London, Uk replies: "I would recommend to take enormous amounts of a wide spectrum of probiotics daily when taking something that kills off bacteria in the gut.
A low gut flora, or an imbalanced gut flora can cause pretty much any health problem you can imagine. I just finished reading a book about it, written by a professor in Immunology at University of Michigan Department of Immunology (top 10). It's called The Probiotic Revolution. Author Dr. Huggnagel. It makes you never want to take antibiotics ever again, unless it's a matter of life and death.
Since hydrogen peroxide kills off your gut flora, it could cause horrific problems, especially if you had a vulnerable gut flora to begin with.
Always take probiotics 2 hours after taking something that kills your intestinal good bacteria."
06/04/2012: Swhit from Los Angeles, Ca replies: "To Yannick, This site http://drinkh2o2.com/ has very good info about H202 and will explain what is going on."
06/04/2012: Mr_obvious from Charlotte, Nc replies: "H2O2 offers an extra molecule of oxygen to fight off bad bacteria that grows best in low oxygen environments. The good bacteria tends to do well in higher oxygen environments so, used in proper dosage, I would think the H2O2 would be beneficial to the digestive tract. Regarding the previously discussed nausea: defective cells being killed off by H2O2 and removed from the body can cause a feeling of nausea."
06/17/2012: Kate from Raleigh, Nc replies: "Yannick: Were you using 35% Food Grade H2O2 in your water? I'm 5' 2 1/2" and weigh 113 pounds. I'm taking 35% Food Grade H2O2 in an 8oz glass of water three times a day. Today, I reached 18 drops of 35% Food Grade H2O2 in a glass of water. I got pretty queasy for about 45 minutes after my first glass this morning. It was really uncomfortable, but after 45 minutes, I felt perfectly fine. The second glass I had today didn't make me feel quite so queasy although it was still uncomfortable. Again, though, I felt perfectly fine after 45 minutes. So, I wonder what kind of H2O2 you're using. Please let us know."
07/29/2012: Marti from Hillsdale, Mi replies: "I agree one needs to be very careful when handeling 35% FGHP, but when it is diluted at 5 drops per 8 oz of water it is no longer 35%. I even got some of the 35% on my skin and rubbed it with aloe vera gel straight from the leaf and within a few mins the burn was gone and the white effect was gone."
10/15/2012: Airzone from Hernando, Mississippi replies: "I have been to Doctors fore years with no good results. Hydrogen Peroxide food grade is strong anything can kill you if too much is used even FDA Drugs not to mention the side effects! Sure doctors don't want to lose Money, Myself I am not afraid to try things that does truly works when tring somthing you first have to take Baby steps to see what fits good luck to all and good health. I put full strength on my shins and add a little soap it at first it burned a little, now I can get it on my fingers it does not bother me any more guess I am immune to 35% H/P. Have Faith!"
11/27/2012: Lillyjah from Petworth, West Sussex replies: "Food gradeable hydrodgen peroxide is 35%. For input into our bodies the recommended dose is 3%. It is brilliant for cleaning ears, just 3 drops usually does the job if you suffer from any nose complaints ie: rhinitis, or scabbing up of the nose, rub a little 3% around the inside of your nose.... Brilliant, gets rid of it for awhile of coarse it comes back, but that's the nature of the beast, so repeat with the 3 drops... Brilliant if you have a cold coming on as well, ears and nose.... Brilliant as a, mouth wash as well, I also had a hard little lump come up on my face.... Brown in colour the size of a pin head, it dissapeared after 4 days of putting a little 3% hydrogen peroxide drops on it.... Brilliant. Hope this helps and yes if you take it internally, you must take either lactobillius acidofillus of pro biotics, as high as what you can get them.... you can take up to 10 of these at one time as well."
09/03/2011: Philiplamb from Warri, Delta State, Nigeria: "pls can I use the hydrogen peroxide found in drug stores for acne. thank you earth clinic for the wonderful info."Replies
07/03/2012: Psilas from London, Uk replies: "For acne, boils, eczema, psoriasis etc what you REALLY want is Dead Sea Salt. This stuff is for the skin what hydrogen peroxide is for the blood.
Make sure its 'real' dead sea salt though. There are tons of fake sellers around, especially on ebay.
Ask for a free small sample from the company you are going to purchase from before buying large amounts. Dead sea salt is 'NOT' like normal sea salt and does not taste like it either. It tastes slightly chemical and you wouldn't want it on your food that's for sure. Its kinda like speed or amphetamines to the taste but definitely not salt like.
Use it regularly and dead sea salt can work wonders for the skin."
[YEA] 09/22/2012: Shsummers from Baltimore, Md-maryland replies: "I had pretty persistent acne growing up; as I got older, it mostly went away, but I could never seem to get rid of it on my back. I've recently been investigating H2O2 therapies for a different ailment, which has proven very helpful.
One of the problems regarding treating the back, is that it is naturally difficult to reach much of it. I decided I'd try spraying 3% pharmacy H2O2 on my back after showering. I've been using food grade for internal use, but as this is an external application, there's no problem using the more commonly available kind.
I found that the spray nozzle for a liquid wrinkle remover fit the fairly small opening to a regular bottle of H2O2, and that it sprayed a very fine mist, which is perfect for this application. I noticed an improvement almost immediately... It didn't take very long to clear up most of the back. However, it took about 3 months to finally clear up a persistent area located in the middle of my upper back. The treatment can be drying, which didn't bother me, but if it is bothersome to you, I'd expect that you could apply the spray every other day instead.
Anyway, it's a real relief to have cleared up my back for the first time in over 30 years, and I feel quite certain that it will continue to be successful. I hope this will help someone as much as it has helped me."
[YEA] 07/19/2008: Danielle from Chicago, IL: "Acne Remedies: I tried hydrogen peroxide with the assumption that it was an antiseptic that would aid in killing bacteria, infection, etc. (essentially what pimples are when inflamed). It definitely works. As others recommended, soak a cotton ball and hold for several min. For spot treatment and to avoid overdrying & light eyebrows, I use a q-tip. I will do this 2-3x's a day. If you have already squeezed or picked, the peroxide will often cause drying, flaking, or scabbing on that pimple so I recommend using baby oil on that spot (overnight). For day, I recommend Eucerin since it heals very dry skin and is non-irritating. I never realized how much dirt is still on your face, even after you thought you washed it well. Witch Hazel is a great toner, after washing. This will remove all excess dirt without overdrying."Replies
03/01/2012: Peniasi from Apia, Samoa replies: "Well what are exactly the steps for pimples using this hydrogen peroxide? I have tons of pimples on my face and it's making me ugly and still looking for a cure please..."
04/12/2012: James from Calgary, Alberta, Canada replies: "An effective way to get rid of Acne is to use plain white vinegar!
My daughter had had some problems with Acne for some years until I found a little advertised secret on the net about the uses for vinegar.
I thought it seemed harmless enough and recommended that she try it.
You have to be careful not to get it in your eyes but otherwise it works like wonders! You use it as it is not diluted! Remember this is Vinegar not H202. I have also used H202 food grade for years but for different applications and I have found it to be very useful for the majoity of the applications recomended. To get rid of any burns on your hands you can use vitamin C in the powdered form and mix with water just enough water to disolve and give coverage to the burned area! What you will see is the burning feeling will stop within a few short minutes and the white color will disappear! As we all know H202 is an Oxidizer. And Vitamin C is a powerful Anti-oxident the one will quickly neutralize the other! Try it it works!"
07/13/2012: Bernie from Chicago, Il replies: "I have used Apple Cider Vinegar on my acne and it drys it right up. It is also very good for cold sores on the lips. If it stinks when you put it on use a little water in it.
I then follow it up by using neem soap and lotion. I only use the neem soap and lotion during the day. The neem lotion does have a slight smell but it evaporates in about half hour and works very well."
[YEA] 09/14/2007: Ella from Alberta, Canada: "I tried the hydrogen peroxide remedy for acne and it has been simply amazing! I was in the bath one evening and I had a bad flare up on my right cheek of probably about 5 or 6 pimples that I had popped, got out some hydrogen peroxide (I use stronger percent than 3 though) and poured a bit on to a piece of tissue paper and held it to my cheek for roughly 10 minutes. Yes it stung! But it went away quickly. The stuff literally flattened all those inflamed pimples I had which felt super smooth, I was SO relieved! I thought, hey..I'm going to try this every day! I rub the solution on my face about 3 times per day. My face is so clear now with no pimples!! I have a history of red marks left over from 10 years of acne and the HP has lightened them significantly and it's only been about a week since I've been doing it! Since it bleaches hair I thought well hey, it would probably have some effect in fading red marks too, makes sense right? If I get a breakout, I hold a soaked cotton ball to the area for a few minutes, then later on the redness is gone and the pimple is flat. I LOVE this stuff and I think all acne sufferers should try it. Works so fast!!!"Replies

I'm 50 years old and when I was a teenager with acne, a friend recommended lysine to me (found in any vitamin section) and it worked wonders for me. 2 or 3 500mg tablets a day during flare ups is usually all it takes. Good luck!"
Antibiotics and H2O2
[QUESTION] 08/11/2009: Tricia from Ireland: "I had to go to Doc today. Managed to lance myself with a rusty pipe that I backed my leg into. Minor surgery removed most of it but now I need to take a antibio ( a strong one at that). My question is - I had just started hydrogen peroxide therapy. I'm still only at 8 drops per glass X 3 per day and it is working for tonsil mucous reduction. Too early to say it is a cure. Anyway what effect, if any, will the antibiotics and peroxide have on each other and can I continue with peroxide therapy? Antibiotics are clarithromycin 500 X 2 per day. Thanks for all the informmation that you and the readers provide."Replies

09/06/2009: Tricia from Ireland replies: "To Briana from Dublin, sorry for the delay in my reply. I have only just seen your question. That is all you can get here in Ireland unless you know somebody in the food trade who can supply you with 35% food grade. I have been using distilled water to dilute it and as per Teds instruction check for stabilisers. The particular brand that I use also makes the borax that I buy and I checked with them that they don't add anything.e.g alum etc to the borax. Their products are all 100% from the information that I have gathered. EC doesn't allow us to mention brand names but if you leave your e-mail I will tell you which brand I use. I still hope to find larger quantities as I am running to the chemist every week between using it in the baths and the drops is water.I dislike buying on the internet because of previous problems."
EC: Hi Tricia, no problem to send in the brand name for locating the product in Ireland. We actually started a section on the borax page for people trying to locate borax outside the USA.
01/16/2010: Eduardo from Lima, Perú replies: "Hi Tricia ... I live in Perú, South America ... and would like to get the trade mark of Hydrogen peroxide you have tried, as long as I am worried tu use the right product .... Please I would really appreciate your help. Thanks!"
01/17/2010: Tricia from Ireland replies: "Sorry to all. I only just saw ec comment on brand name. Thanks Eduardo. Threre is no brand name on the bottles, it just says "Pharmacy brand" at he top but it is made by a company called Ricesteele, Tallaght, Dublin 24, Ireland. They make both the HP and borax that I use. I think they have a parent company elsewhere (USA probably). When It comes to tonsil mucous it didn't work. There was a reduction but by no means a cure. I am trying oil of oregano at the moment and again I can get to a watery reduction but not a cure. My next attempt is to sniff HP into the sinus and spray the throat/tonsils. Hope this helps."
01/24/2010: Ger from Dublin, Ireland replies: "Hi Tricia
Can you tell me the name and address of the chemist where you buy your 35% HP foodgrade and what exactly you ask for. Also do you know where I can buy distilled water. I have contacted numerous pharmacies in Ireland and cannot locate either product."
01/25/2010: Tricia from Ireland replies: "Hello Ger, I never managed to locate 35% HP. All Chemists sell HP but only at the 3% or 6%- the latter being the more common, so usually I get them to order it at 3% for me. It is a commonly used antiseptic for hearing aids and cleaning so should be readily available at all chemists. Check around this website for Ted's reccommendation on checking for stabilisers in HP before ingestion.
Distlled water is another matter. Hard to believe but this seems to have gone off the market here. I tried a number of places and couldn't get it. I settled for sterilised water which I was able to buy in the chemists for about 3 Euro. That was the closest I could get."
01/27/2010: Brianna from Dublin, Ireland replies: "hi tricia from ireland if you look up the yellow pages you will find a few places that sell hydrogen proxide in dublin one place is in jfk industerial estate bluebell i forget the name of the company the name of the hydrogen proxide is merick and its made in germany the place in bluebell sells it in one litre bottles but i dont know if it sells to the public i asked my doctor about doing the proxide therapy because of my emphysema and she said i had nothing to lose so i told the chemist i needed it for cleaning my veg and my house becaue of infections i keep getting i also had my doctor to back me up altough i didn.t need her the chemist ordered it for me but you can try some of the places in the yellow pages they can only say no then try your local chemist"
01/28/2010: Tricia from Ireland replies: "Hi Brianna - I wondered how you were doing as you hadn't posted in a while so I'm glad to know you're ok. Thanks for the tip. Did you get it in small quantities i.e 500 mls as oppsed to 5 litre drums. Storage would be a problem for me. Also did you, by any chance, come across distilled water in your travels?"

04/05/2010: Richard from Visaginas, Utena, Lithuania replies: "To Tricia In Ireland. I have had a tonsil mucous condition left over from a flu bout 9 weeks ago. I started a H2O2 program and don't know how to get rid of the throat condition without affecting the effectiveness of the H2O2. Salt water or .2% chlorohexidine gargles don't work. What did you do? Anybody have ideas?"
04/05/2010: Tricia from Ireland replies: "Hi Richard, At this stage it is almost a case of "what haven't I done?". I stopped the oral ingestion of HP at that time because I had no choice but to take the antibiotics at the time and since no one answered the question I had posed, I decided not to take any chances. I started to inhale the HP instead and felt - though not a cure - that this helped clear the mucous that was slipping from the tonsils into the lungs and causing me to cough. When I restarted ingestion there was no further great improvement so I switched to Teds remedy for a low lying infection which included Zinc, vit c, lysine and HP in water. No success so I tried oil of oregano with no success either.
I should note that with most of these remedies I will initially feel that it is working then within 24/48 hrs return to normal.
Previous to these things I have tried tumeric, cayenne pepper, oil pulling, iodine painting and magnesium. I continue to ingest acv,bread soda and borax which I had taken for other things and none of the above have given me any relief from the constant mucous forming at the back of my throat.
Like you, this started with a bad cold. Although I have had a specialist put in a camera through the sinus and tonsils and says there is nothing amiss, I am beginning to feel as though there is some sort of structural damage. I have this about 3/4 years now.
I don't think any of the above will affect the effect of HP except for acv which when the two are combined change the type of acid. So these two require a time window.
If you find anything that helps on this I would be grateful if you would let me know."

09/02/2011: Cheldena from Mankato, Minnesota replies: "Hi Tricia, I was reading about your mucous and throat issues. I was told allergies can cause a person to have mucous drainage and especially when you sleep and once you wake up in the morning you can have a sore throat from the drainage. So I treated my allergies naturally and no longer have the drainage. Of course you also need to remove things from your home etc to get rid of the cause and not just treat the symptoms. Something that had also helped me temporarilly was using a Neti Pot with uniodized salt water. Or you can snort in one nostril at a time Goldenseal powder in small amounts to treat upper resp. infections and sinus infections. I use Elderberry especially for this. Hope these thoughts help some. Also as a side note: re Hydrogen Peroxide. Please whom ever reads this please make sure it is the Food Grade HP not something from the pharmacy that you use internally! A good safe source of food grade hydrogen peroxide is through Dr Hulda Clark's store. Do a search you will find it."
04/19/2012: D Smith from Los Angeles, Ca replies: "Hi Tricia, If all those didn't work, it could be the acv. ACV and other acids can cause irritation of the throat passages when taken at too high of a dose (Especially when using other products that clear mucous since the mucous helps protect these membranes from this damage.)
For the moment, I would suggest to possibly stop taking ACV and any other acidic products (lemon/grapefruit may be ok at low concentrations if necessary) and replace it with a spoonful of natural raw honey daily when you wakeup to help sooth and repair the throat. You may also want to cut down on your dosage of some of the products that you are taking to reduce mucous unless you are still having cold or flu type symptoms. Because of the possible damage, a little mucous is more helpful than hurtful at this point.
That said, ACV is not bad in itself as this can happen even from drinking a high concentration of lemon juice. Sometimes we just need to take baby steps when we start something new and in your case it may have been the combination of acidic products with a significant reduction in mucous."

[YEA] 12/01/2009: Bill from Los Angeles, California replies: "Frank, I have been using FGHP (35%) for many years with Raw Apple Cider Vinegar. I am 56 yrs old now and have only great things to say about it, Thanks to God. I started using it at age 30. I had severe joint and back pain at the time. After three months, starting with 3 drops 2 to 3 times daily (FGHP) and 1 Capful of the Cider Vinegar, working up to 25 drops of FGHP 2 to 3 times daily, I've had astronomical results. The results were verified by my then girlfriend who was also useing the same program. (1) No more heavy or bad breath, (2) No body odor, (3) You will only need approximately 4 to 5 hours of sleep per day and when you awaken you will be wide awake, not sluggish or groggy. After you reach the 25 drop level you can then taper off. Find the instructions on line. Oh, people think I'm no more than 30-35yrs old! Enjoy."

12/06/2009: Kay from In The Valley, Ca replies: "Bill, do you take the ACV and the FGHP at the same time? Most of the instructions for HP say to take it one hour before or three hours after any other food. It would make things much easier if they could be combined, but I'm afraid to try it.

I started with 2 drops, due to uncertainty, but no problems, am only up to 4 drops 3xs day. Have not noticed nervousness but do have increased energy throughout the day. The dosing schedules that I have found (I recv'd a pamplet from my health food store when buying the Food Grade H2O2) state a dosing schedule for 35% undiluted H2O2. As for other uses, besides internal, I have found on the internet on various sites. I am planning on trying the ACV along with the H2O2 after just learning about it on EC. Am desperately hoping that between the 2 that I will finaly get long awaited relief for chronic sinus issues, that after anti-biotics, anti-fungals, steriods and ENT and NMD visits over the past 3 months have not relieved a bit, but have cleaned my bank account."
01/02/2010: Windy from Kitty Ville, Ca replies: "I started on the food grade HP too, by the time I got to 6 drops 3 times a day I started having tummy issues so I cut back, I will tell you I felt amazing till then. I got mine from a place out of Flordia, and got a blue dropper bottle too for easy usage, you need to BE VERY VERY CAREFUL with the 35% food grade can cause blindness if you get it in the eye, well so can bleach, just use caution, also need to get distilled water for sure. I think that was my problem I used Brita filter water, I then switched to taking it with milk the book said it was ok. I will be trying it again soon.. food grade HP fills your cells with oxygen like Vitamin C does from what I read.. so reseach it and try it!! GOOD LUCK"

i have not used HP with ACV but I use HP regularly as a nasal/sinus flush. it's brilliant. I add 4 mls of 35% food grade HP to 500ml distilled water and snort it into each nostril every morning. Then I gargle. It's an instant shot of alertness and clarity alnd clears my sinuses. Just like an early morning surf. the recipe above is less than 0.50% in strength. i find anything stronger burns my nasal passage. I've seen some posts recommend 3% but it is way too strong for me.

03/16/2010: Bill from San Fernando, Luzon, Philippines replies: "Hi Tena...I've been using ACV plus baking soda and lemon/lime plus BS for over 4 years now on a regular basis. I use the lemon/lime remedy more often because it alkalizes better and seems to balance more internal parameters than the ACV remedy which is good for extra energy because of the malates created which are used in the Kreb's Cycle of cell respiration.
I also use just 1/4 to 1/2 tspn of Baking Soda on its own in a half glass of water if I need to top up on bicarbonates to alkalize my blood and intestines and I also use this remedy occasionally as an antacid -- always taken a half an hour after meals.
When I had Candida, I used mainly the lemon plus baking soda remedy -- 1/2 tspn plus a whole lemon in a half glass of water, three times a day. I did this to keep my blood and intestinal pH alkaline to help get rid of the candida. But now cured of candida, I take a maintenance dose of just 1/4 tspn twice a day about 3 times a week or whenever I feel I need it.
I also take HP internally. But I don't need to take this very often because there's nothing wrong with me..LOL. But I do take it, 6-10 drops 3% HP in a full glass of water for extra energy or a boost. I've been doing this for about a year now."

and if Ted could take a look at this section and clarify it some more for the people that would be great. he said taking baking soda with HYDROGEN PEROXIDE is fine, NOT combining Apple Cider Vinegar, with baking soda and HYDROGEN PEROXIDE (do not take it all together at the same time).
ADD HYDROGEN PEROXIDE?
02/08/2007: Fran from Houston, TX writes: "Can I add few drops of good grade hydrogen peroxide to the ACV and baking soda solution, twice a day? Thanks"
Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "No. Hydrogen peroxide will neutralize the vitamin C and other organic compounds in the apple cider vinegar. It is best taken for hydrogen peroxide with water alone, or at least 6 hours apart.
The reason is simple, hydrogen peroxide is an oxidant, while apple cider vinegar and baking soda is an antioxidant.
You can however, mix drops of hydrogen peroxide with baking soda in a drinking water. It creates a more alkaline form of peroxides which can also detoxify the body of accumulated poisons built up in the liver."

It is hard, sometimes painful and itchy and there is a continuous bloody secretion. I plan to try the H2O2 protocol together with Vitalzym (enzymes) and magnesium as I read in the CancerTutor. I want to know if I can use Alkaline Ionized Water instead of Distilled Water when I take the drops of H2O2. Can I also combine this with 1/4 tsp. of baking soda?

03/16/2011: Daisy from Jacksonville, Florida, U.s.a replies: "In reply to Francisca from Michelbach-le-bas, France, who wrote that she can't watch certain DVDs on her European DVD player:
Please don't let region encoding stop you. Usually a DVD player can be reset to Region 0 (that is, region-free) if you have the right code from the manufacturer, and though the manufacturers try to keep them secret, these codes are commonly available online. Once your DVD player is reset to Region 0, you can play DVDs from any region. Setting it is very much like programming a VCR, you only do it once, and then never worry about it again for the life of that DVD player. To do this, first determine the exact make and model number of your DVD player by looking at the sticker on the player and writing it down, Google "dvd region hack" for that make and model, and then follow the instructions exactly. I've done it for every DVD player I've owned in the last ten years and never had a problem finding the code or getting it to work, though on one I had to try two different codes before I found the one that worked.
You can also buy region-free DVD players pretty much anywhere, and the only difference between these and regular DVD players is that they have already been set to Region 0 at the factory. But then you get charged double and triple the price for what you can do yourself for free if you have the codes. It is not illegal to reset your DVD player in this manner, at least not in the U. S. -- you're not bypassing any copy protection or breaking any copyrights, just changing a setting that is already in your DVD player. I have no idea about the laws of France, so if you're concerned about this then check it out before you do it. You may also void the warranty of your DVD player, but since I can buy a new player for $40 I never worried with it.
Unfortunately, with big pharma in the U. S. (and other countries) trying desperately to restrict the flow of information regarding non-patentable and common (unrestrictable) remedies, as well as the entertainment industry's constant lockdown on recording technologies, it seems inevitable that we're going to run into roadblocks in getting the information we want. But of all the craziness out there, DVD region restriction may be the least problematic. Google the codes and give it a try. Anyway, good luck. :)"
03/21/2011: Francisca from Michelbach-le-bas, Alsace, France replies: "Hi Daisy, I have been on a trip so I couldn't answer you. Many thanks for the information! I always worry when I buy a DVD on Amazon whether I have the right one and of course, some you can't buy for our region which is quite annoying! I will keep your information and look into it soon or better.... I will ask my husband to look into it! Our DVD player doesn't have a warranty anymore and anyway, I doubt they would look into it, as I doubt the French government would so no worries there! But you are right... DVD player problems are the least of our problems anyway, no matter how stupid and disrupting they are!"
03/22/2011: Lily from Brisbane, Queensland, Australia replies: "Hi Francisca, changing the DVD player from your Zone to All Zones voids the warranty anyhow so nobody would ever know.

It's just a pity I hadn't discovered this about black salve before my mother was told she had breast cancer! May I add that she had her first mammogram 8 months prior to being told she had breast cancer and that after that first mammogram she was cleared, so that just copper fastened my belief that they are giving us cancer in as many ways as they can...

I add 1/2 teaspooon of baking soda to my can of beer hoping to neutralize the beer's acidity. When I drink a glass of water I add 1/2 teaspoon of soda and also add 4 drops of 35% food grade h202. Have been advised by the maker of my h202 to use 1 drop of h202 to every oz of distilled water or can use filtered water. I'm 83, I bike, walk, play golf twice weekly, mow and weed eat two acres, have a garden but global warming is taking its toll on the garden, 102 and no rain in sight, I have never had a problem with what I do, even with this heat I have energy and if anyone that is reading this is concerned with my dosage I would like some feedback, oh and I never have a tummy ache as some have experienced, I have a testimony you must read, will do later."
11/05/2012: Mike from New York, Ny replies: "I purchased FGHP and immediately began using it with the incorrect dosage. Like an idiot, I mistook a drop to mean one whole dropper. You can see where this is going. I did three whole droppers the first day and the physiological effects were perceptible that evening. My throat felt scratchy beneath the Adam's apple and I suffered from nausea. I repeated the incorrect dosage for a few more days until it was pointed out to me that a whole dropper is not a drop. A Eureka moment ensued. I ramped down to 3 drops, not droppers, and although the candida in my stomach was decimated (which was partly my initial intent taking FGHP) I experienced a general discomfort and have since ceased taking the product, figuring I would give the body some time to recover.
Now, almost a month later, my body quivers and anxiety has stricken my mind. There are times when my brain lapses momentarily. I suspect this is a result of the overdose and could use some clarification or confirmation and certainly some guidance. It was my mistake and no one's fault but my own (I was never good with details). Granted, there were extenuating circumstances which I can attribute to my recent anxiety (Hurricane Sandy's aftermath), however, I have not read anywhere what the consequences of taking too much FGHP are. I appreciate your help."
11/06/2012: Timh from Louisville, Ky, Usa replies: "Mike: Oxygen can be toxic as it could produce dangerous free radicals, and this can happen only in a body deficient in reduction enzymes like Superoxide Dismutase, Catalse. The dose you took is the maximum advised oral dose that is supposed to be reached gradually (as you noted as a mistake). H2O2 is also administered I.V. by some holistic doctors and therapist, so there is a good safety record here. This episode doesn't seem disastrous but there does seem to be a need for response. Eat Wheat Sprouts or take as supplement for a few days, and also do some relaxation therapy and you should be just fine."

A friend of mine wrote an ebook on how his father-in-law beat COPD & emphysema in six weeks with h202. This was over 20 years ago and he is still alive also he continued to smoke. This is who I learned of H202 from. I put 15 drops of 35% in 6 oz of apple cider and drink. I first did the drop treatment for six weeks but only once a day.

I have been drinking about 3 liters of distilled water per day for the last 18 years(since 1992). Filtering water only removes SOME of the contaminants but steam distilling water removes a lot more. Distilled water is said to leach out some minerals but who does't want unhealthy things leached out of their bodies as long as they regularly add back in the healthy life-promoting minerals and trace elements with good nutrition and supplementation.

That is very dangerous. Water from a dehumidifier is condensate which is different than distillate. Water from a dehumidifier has been condensed out of the air and with it any airborne particles, bacteria, molds, and or viruses. Distilled water has been boiled in a closed system (no dust or air born particles) and then cooled to be condensed. So while the physics is the same, the outcome is quite different.
Never drink water from a dehumidifier.
Just my 2 cents -

10/08/2009: Lee773 from Chicago, Illinois, United States: "My question is about Hydrogen Peroxide. I have had my mother on the Therapy for 17 days now, and she is up to 17 drops in her 8oz glass of water. Today, after having her drink this morning, she vomited a lot of thick mucus 10 minutes after drinking? Is this normal? The water is distilled, in an 8oz glass, 17 drops. I'd like to know how to proceed? Should she continue on the drops, decrease the dosage? She has been using this for "Arthritis". Thanks."Replies
10/08/2009: Lisa from Thousand Oaks, Ca, USA replies: "Personally, I have never used the food grade hydrogen peroxide, only the 3% that you can get from the store. I did the regimen of adding a drop a day for about 3 weeks as I seemed to have a lot of mucus problems. In Chinese medicine it is well known that phlegm can wreak absolute havoc throughout the body and is what can cause arthritis and body pain. I know that there have been times when that was the only way the amount of mucus that needed to come out came out! Perhaps that was what your mom experienced. I'm curious if it seems to be helping to reduce the arthritic pain. I know I felt a lot of relief in my lungs, sinuses, body pain and stomach upon reducing the phlegm. Periodically, I will consciously do a regimen for just this. I hope this helps."
[BETTER BUT WITH SIDE EFFECTS] 10/08/2009: Lee773 from Chicago, Illinois replies: "Thank you Lisa,
My mother's pain stopped the second day after she was on the therapy. She has not had any kind of symptoms until this morning when she vomitted. So, I was not knowing how I should proceed. I have read elsewhere on this site that it may be just the toxins leaving the body. All I can say right now is I believe definitely that the hydrogen peroxide is the reason that my mother is not in pain like she was 17 days ago. She could barely walk, and was in excruciating pain all over (shoulders, lower back, arms, legs, and numbness in her feet) she has none of these symptoms now. The only thing was the vomit this morning. "
11/16/2009: Radiantresults from Coral Springs, Fl replies: "Warning!! store bought 3% Hydrogen Peroxide.
You must have 35% FOOD GRADE. Food Grade is free of chemical binders and other junk molecules that are put is the 3% H2O2's sold over the counter at pharmacies and grocery stores."
EC: Per Ted (found in the introductory section of hydrogen peroxide):
Ted from Bangkok writes, "There is a simple way to see if Hydrogen Peroxide contains stabilizers: Pour 1/2 cap of hydrogen peroxide in a glass of water. If the color has yellow (or other off colors), it has a stabilizer. It is best to set it out in the sun where it is easier to see. If the H202 remains colorless when mixed in a glass of water, it usually does not have a stabilizer.
Almost all H2O2 sold in drug stores will have stabilizers, actually to discourage people to use them internally. So you can use this as a way to compare them. Basically, H2O2 poured into a clean glass and left out in a sun covered by a dish should not have air bubbles. If it does, there are metal contaminants. If you are asking for trouble, a drop of ammonia solution in H2O2 mixed in water will cause a rapid air bubble generation. It is more unstable if it has stabilizers. You can try the experiment and compare the results.
The test for this is not perfect one, but the key is the color, even when you add just a small amount of water in direct sunlight. Also, a good quality H2O2 doesn't get small bubbles during storage.
By the way, an easy way to test the quality of your drinking water is to add 10% of 3% H2O2 to 90% Water and perform the test by noticing air bubbles. If there are a lot of air bubbles for the next 6 hours, then the water has either too much organic residues OR heavy metals. During the test please keep in places AWAY from children. After the test immediately discard the contents into the sink. Ted"
01/02/2010: Windy from Kitty Ville, Ca replies: "Lisa from Thousand Oaks, Ca Oh man, really the ones they sell over the counter may contain bad levels of other stuff.. look at the site first page it tells you how to test your HP for metals and such, you can be doing more harm then good using over the counter HP"
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] 09/24/2009: Lee773 from Chicago, Illinois, United States: "I have been reading and researching for the last few weeks about the many cures of Hydrogen Peroxide 35% Food Grade. I purchased a bottle from ____, and had my mother start with the treatment 1 drop in an 8 ounce glass of water 3 times a day, increasing the drops by one drop each day. She is now up to 5 drops as of today, and will be on her 6th drop tomorrow morning. My mother has been suffering from severe artritis for many years, but over the last year it has gotten to the point where she could barely walk. So let me tell you that as of today 9-24-2009, since starting this therapy of oral ingestion 5 days ago, she is not complaining at all of the pain in her lower back, left shoulder, wrist or leg areas. My mother said the only thing she feels now is stiffness in the back of her leg (knee area), but its starting to loosen up. I can tell by looking at how she walks now compared to last week, that it is working for real, It is still early, but I have to say that I am shocked!
Today as I was talking to her, she told me that the feeling in her toes have returned, she didn't bother to mention this to any of my siblings or myself until I was asking her how she has been feeling, since I got her started on the Hydrogen Peroxide 35% diluted with the dropper in 8 ounces of water. By the way my mother is 85 years old. I don't know what to expect as we continue with this therapy, but I have to say I'm thankful for a site like this, and all the information that I have read online here, and all the readily available information on the internet. I will update as I continue to watch my mother's progress. Thank you again!

[YEA] 02/16/2009: Jean from Somerset, KY: "I'm age 76, have basically avoided doctors for about 45 years now, as I know they never get to the CAUSE of any of our ailments. I learned about right nutrition and fasting as a natural route to healing if I had any problems, and that has basically been adequate. Until a couple months ago when I developed what I suppose was arthritic PAIN in my left shoulder/elbow/wrist/ hand...and I'm left-handed! And it would keep me miserable enough I couldn't sleep, and I couldn't seem to shake it by what I knew to do. I didn't really want to fast at length, as in recent years I'm skinnier (5'3" and about 115): people ask too many questions and besides, it's uncomfortable not to have enough padding on your bones! (been there/done that) So, I prayed, and I believe it was God who showed me info about taking peroxide. I did quite a bit of research on it and was convinced it was a valid route to go. I began 12 days ago (continuing) with just ONE cautious drop, then TWO DROPS the next morning (after that I went to 3 drops 3x a day, and building up)...and to my amazement about a couple hours after I took those two drops, I realized ALL that pain I had suffered with for WEEKS was GONE. Wow. Is that fantastic, or what?! And it hasn't come back.
I'm continuing because I saw that the peroxide has a cleansing effect much like the fasting does, except I don't have to lose weight in the process. I have a few little matters that I mostly ignored because they don't HURT (nothing like some pain for motivation to change!!)....so decided to deal with them via the peroxide. I have a slight bit of tinnitus (which I mostly don't think about, but it's there so could get worse?), my eyesight (I wear reading glasses), my hearing (I miss some conversation), my BRAIN (ach! "senior moments" are not funny, really)...might the peroxide help in those????? I'm hoping! :-)
A couple days ago I had some cold symptoms develop, ( a LOT of sneezing and MUCH clear nasal discharge) which I know were just to be expected...but I seem to be past that. I have a couple questions!? About day nine I was nauseous after taking the peroxide in the morning, so thought to put four drops of my orange-flavored liquid stevia in each time, is that OK? Some places said use juice or milk, but other places said just water, and I hate to go through all this and not have it as effective as possible! AND for a while now I have put sea salt at the rate of a teaspoon per gallon of drinking water, as that is what Dr. Batmanghelidge says we need...is that OK with the peroxide? (He didn't say put it in drinking water; that was my idea since I don't like to salt my food much...and the water doesn't taste salty, just good) I'm using reverse osmosis water by the gallon from our local health store. I'm thinking of getting a reverse osmosis system for under my kitchen sink: they seem reasonable in price. Can anyone un-confuse me about the 3/4/5 phase systems in them, which is adequate?? I'll let y'all know how this peroxide regimen treats me in days ahead! I do believe my brain is slightly more clear already. :-) Oh, and I have for years had irregular sleep (I hate to call it insomnia)...hope maybe that is a problem the peroxide might help. Am I expecting miracles?! Well, that arthritic pain gone in two days was a miracle, wasn't it?!
2/16/2009: Jean from Somerset, KY writes, "I have another question. I read we should build up gradually to taking the peroxide AND decrease gradually, but I haven't read WHY the gradual decrease. What would happen if some morning I am tempted to think, I CAN'T DO THIS ONE MORE DAY!! (??) I might deal with that thought better if know ahead of time why I should and can decrease gradually???""
02/20/2009: Sam from Irvine, CA replies: "To Jean fr. KY.
NEVER, just Stop taking the H-202 in water suddenly, you must decrease your drops slowly each day, just like you Increase one drop each day to a desired amount, until you reach your goal & have results. Then just take a few drops 4-5 p/day for maintenance. For example, if you increase your intake to 10 or more drops several times p/day or even more than that, then you will slowly decrease drops each day till you get to 1-3 drops, and then you can stop.
If you STOP suddenly you will experience that your body has not finished it's cleansing and will give you other symptoms. Taking the H-202 orally, high amounts, for issues should be taken for a period of 2-3mos as your body will experience a cleansing process and it needs that time line to clean itself out! If you do not give your body ample time 2-3 mos. for the complete cleansing, your liver will have problems. Your LIVER is the garbage disposal, as well as your kidneys, and colon, so as your body receives the High doses of H-202 daily, your body is ridding its cells of all the toxins; fungus, bacteria, viruses, metals, all the pollutants, etc..., and healing itself, and in so doing , it dispels all the gunk into your liver, kidneys, and colon, then it will do a final elimination normally in the bathroom, and also as your body sweats.
Therefore, if your body is not given ample time to Detox, and Eliminate, because you stop your intake of H-202 from High doses to O, now you'll have a problem, all the gunk will be left in your Liver, Kidneys, or worse, in your Colon, now you may end up with another problem..., Do You Understand??!! I SURE HOPE SO."

10/26/2010: Jim from South Carolina replies: "I have understood that you do not or must not consume the 3% HP as it has stabilizers in it which are what makes it unfit to drink and some say poisonous but I guess it depends on how much of the stuff you might consume. I have not found any type of 3% HP which is free of stabilizers but have quickly located the 35% Foodgrade HP here in Columbia, SC and am taking it. Possibly you have discovered some 3% which is foodgrade. Anyway, I dilute it into water, juice, coffee, etc. And drink it that way... Usually 8 drops twice a day as that is what I have worked up to. One person was saying to dilute it to a 3% solution and then drip it into a drink... But, NO, you take the straight 35% stuff and drip it into at least 3-5 oz. (more may be better) of liquid as the liquid becomes your diluting medium if you get my 'drift'. It's way too darned strong otherwise and might do bad things to your health. I am still detoxing and can not say exactly what all it is doing for me at this point. Hope this helps."

Thus far nothing found concerning artificial joints. The closest positive so far is that H2O2 will aid in strengthening bones.

I placed about 1/3 cup of water in a separate container and one drop of 35% food grade H202. Stirred it and then filled to capacity the nebulizer holding cup. After about 20 minutes he seemed to breath alot easier but not 100% to normal. He slept for an hour then was able to get up and guess what? No heavy breathing! A little wheezing but not as much as before. I was hesitant to try the H2O2 as so many precautions and warnings. I'm glad I only put one drop into a separate container with more water. One drop in the nebulizer cup (about 2 tablespoons capacity) would have been way too much."Replies

After surgery on my sinuses, several medications and steroids, I was no better and my doctors were puzzzled. I finally read about H202 and I also tried it in my nebulizer. I did a 50/50 mixture with regular store bought peroxide (as this is actually safer because food grade is very strong), and after two days of using this mixture, I could breathe, run, and smell unlike I could before. (I also suffer sever allergies that take away my sense of smell.) One week later I went for a check-up with my asthma specialist and my lung function had improved from 64% to 92%!!! I was not surprised though because I felt the changes. I still have to keep up with treating myself with H202 or else my symptoms begin to come back, but I am healthier and happier than before.

02/19/2010: Mink from Vallejo, Ca replies: "Its true that undiluted 35% FGHP is dangerous if handled or ingested. That's why you must dilute it to a 3% solution. And that's easy enough to accomplish its just an 11 to 1 ratio. So 11 ounces of distilled water to 1 ounce FGHP will give you a 3% solution.
I would like to warn you against using 1% or 3% solutions found at your local pharmacy. They contain harmful stabilizers. Stabilizers are added to give Peroxide a longer shelf life since FGHP will lose potency at approx 1% per year. These stabilizers include chemicals like Acetanilide that are an irritant and can make your asthma worse over time. And there are no studies that document what ingested Acetanilide does to the body. Its best to just get the pure stuff that we know is good for you.

06/18/2011: Rebecca from Boca Raton, Fl replies: "Hey guys I have been on Antibiotic 6 times this year out of 120 days And not just Antibiotics but Steroid packs plus steroid shots, A week later it starts all over again. I was on my last dose of Antibiotics and steroids for 20 days with a nebilizer 3 times a day plus inhalers, I am only 45 and I want to live I feel like I am dying a slow death. The doctor told me last week when I got really bad there is nothing he can do for the Sinusitus and the infection in my lungs and body nothing is touching it. From desperate measures not being able to breath I dilluted the Hydogen Peroxide put it in my nebilizer, have been trying it up my nose, along with Sea Salt for releif to open up a passage way to breathe, I have been bathing in it and I have a bad sore throat and I still have major amounts of thick, thick mugas and infection coming up. Can someone tell me is this normal ?
I am trying the inhalations with the nasal spray bottle I still have a labored breathing issues going on this is my 3rd day I am not dead yet so I figure something is working just not sure if I am missing something or if there is more I can do I so badly need my nasal passages and lungs cleared once and for all. How long will this take me ? I have changed my diet taken out all whites flours, breads, Dairy Ect and sugars. Using ACV 3 times a day. I need HELP any one out there that has tried and what I can do."
06/18/2011: Carly from Seattle, Wa - Usa replies: "Hi Rebecca -
My heart goes out to you. I used to have allergy asthma years ago, with the inhaler and the whole fun bronchitis thing to go with it every year. It finally cleared up, and I really have no idea why. Not being able to get a deep breath is scary, and a horrible way to live.
You might want to look up "Linus Pauling and Vitamin C" in a search engine. I have never tried the HP thing, but it seems to me you have an inflamitory process from hell going on, and massive doses of vitamin C are where I would go first. I would be taking it until I had to run to the bathroom, and then back off. At least 1, 000 mg 3-4 times a day. This is just my opinion, and I am not a doctor.... This is just something I thought you might want to try /read about.
Also~ I would look up the anti-inflamitory diet, and the anti-inflamitory properties of omega-3 fatty acids as well.
Lastly ~If I were you I would go to the doctor and get blood work done to see what my C reactive protein readings are. The C-RAP level will tell you how much inflamation you have going on in your body.
Good Luck. :-)"

The antibiotics and steroids you are on probably have damaged your gut. Research "Leaky Gut". I feel like I am repeating myself (I just feel strongly about the book) but you should look into the book Gut & Phychology Syndrome. Steroids also weaken your immune system badly.
My son has bad asthma issues but when I took dairy and gluten away from his his breathing issues cleared miraculously. For the first time he was wheeze free and even stopped grinding his teeth in his sleep.

07/26/2011: Beck from Boca Raton, Florida, Usa replies: "Ted and those that have responded to my Post before I knew I was getting bad, I ended up going to to the Emergency Room and they kept me for 10 days they ran every test on me possible my oxygen level was very low in the 87-88 range and this is why they kept me in the bed for 10 days on oxygen running every test they could telling me I didnt' match any book they had. They sent me home with my Oxygen finally reaching 92-93 they could not figure out what was going on with my body.
I am totally convinced if it was not for the healthy things I have learned and was doing prior to going to ER and I was just so bad and allowed it to get out of control AND I know I wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for this site. So, they did a scope through the nasal in the left lower lube of the lung and through through the mouth into the lower Right lobe they told me they didn't know what they were going to find they did biopsy and tested everything but they came back with nothing everything was negative, They said there was mucus plugs in the lower lobes of the lungs and that my blood work was perfect, My Heart, Lungs, Spleen, Kidneys, Liver, Thyroid everything functioned as if I was a 25 yr. Athletic adult and I am severely 85 lbs over weight from all the steroids they have had me on the last 3 yrs. and they couldn't understand how my Blood pressure, cholesterol, Sugar, and Inflammation levels in my body were better than most normal.
They sent me home after pumping me full of steroids, And so many antibiotics for 10 days it has taken all I can do just to build my strength back up every day has been a challenge for me. The Docotrs said the only thing they could figure out is that I have Chronic sinusitis disease that leads to allergy induced asthma which cuts down my oxygen level when I allow it to get out of control.
So, I am just starting to get my strength back ever day and I just started take 1/2 cup fresh garlic every day, ACV 3 times a day, and all so I am doing the 3 salt water cleanses every day and I want to do whatever else is necessary to go aggresively after my sinus and get this under control along with working on the extra weight I am carrying around. I want to try the Hydrogen Peroxide food grade I need directions on and whatever else I need to do but I need HELP and I know that today the reason I am alive is because of what I have learned from your site PLEASE help to direct me on what I need to do to regain my life back 100%."

07/27/2011: Mmsg from Somewhere, Europe replies: "We are having good results for sinuses/lungs/itchy nose, anything breathing related with this: putting a squirt of plain HP into half a cup of water. Gargle with it and then, before spitting out, breathe thru it with your mouth open a few times."

07/28/2011: Gavin from Manganui, Northland, New Zealand replies: "These Aura migraines are most likely inflamed sinus pressuring the optic nerve. You will find that a capful of cider vinegar and honey in a little water will stop them almost imiediatly. Take morning and evening for a couple of weeks then just do an evening one."
