I have sung the praises of hydrogen peroxide for years. It literally cured me of COPD. Everything good you read about it is true. However, this one little matter: I began to have a black tongue and have had it now for some years. I wrote in here at the time I was helped with the COPD that I did seem have a black tongue and no answer for it, but I said "if that's all I have to pay for the cure, fine by me." But all these years later, I got the answer. It's the peroxide. It affects some people that way. So I'm back to what I said years ago – "If my only problem is black tongue, but cured otherwise….fine by me."
Reading the posts here makes me think that hydrogen peroxide has lots of healthful benefits but should be taken with extra caution. Can you list down the conditions that will make hydrogen peroxide ineffective in treating ailments or cause side effects? I'm worried about the burns, the stomach pains, vomiting, etc. if hydrogen peroxide is not taken properly.
C: Yes, there are some conditions that can be aggravated by H2O2 therapy.
First up on beginning H2O2 is making sure the body is properly alkalized. Acidic conditions cause hypoxia and visa-versa, so always be sure to properly alkalize.
Here a list come-to-mind of conditions that have the potential for bad reaction (hydroxyl radicals etc): Heavy Metals are not removed or detoxed by Hydrogen Peroxide and can produce toxic free radicals if coming into contact, so always do proper H.M. cleanses prior to Oxygen therapy.
Another condition would be a fairly common one of Aldehyde poisoning as a byproduct of candida or fungal infections. I don't have a degree in biochemistry but this combination looks not good. Another but somewhat rare condition is Mallonic Acid poisoning as a byproduct of tapeworm disease, could be reactive to H2O2.
It seems plausible that H2O2 therapy could be used in small amounts long-term, otherwise it would be indicated in increasing amounts (up to 25 drops 3% 2x per day) in acute cases like infections or cancer.
There are also other products that provide additional oxygen delivery like MMS and CellFood. Ozone is superior to H2O2 in many respects but has several shortcomings like instability and difficult administration. Also, adding alkaline rich Sodium Chlorite drops to a beverage naturally increases oxygen within the body.
Thanks Timh! So HP cannot be used without first doing heavy metal cleanse and if one has acidic body? Is there a natural way of doing the heavy metal cleanse?
C: YAW. Depending on factors like age, exposure, dental fillings, etc. one would fall into a category of mild-moderate-severe. To be exact, a Hair Mineral Analysis should be performed.

Side effect reported
I cannot get past 5 drops per day twice a day any more and I feel violently ill. How long can I keep taking h2o2 this way and will 5 drops twice a day kill the mold in my lungs?
Hi,I need your advice. I accidentally bought h2o2 pharmaceutical grade 3.1%, instead of food grade.
I put a tea spoon of H2O2 into half glass of water, placed my toothbrush in it for 1 minute then poured a little water on the toothbrush and washed my teeth and tongue with it. Did not swallow it but I guess I swalled some of it naturally. Then I checked the label and got scared cause I got a very slight stomach upset.
The bottle contains H2O2 3,1% – water -Alcohol Denat- Etidronic Acid – Phosphoric Acid – Disodium edta – Phenacetin – Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice Powder.
Please tell me your opinion about it, how dangerous it is even though I might have swallowed not much.
Nefeli, I use that regular pharmacy stuff all the time for inhalation and tooth brushing – I do dilute it – it never posed a problem for me.
A few months ago, after much research and hesitation on my part, I decided to begin hydrogen peroxide treatment. I began with inhaling 3% food grade H2O2, as it seemed the least likely to induce any harm. And indeed, I noticed that I was able to breathe more deeply, and had more energy, particularly when ascending stairs or doing cardiovascular exercise. I increased the dose, and saw more pronounced results. (On the negative side, I noticed that my tongue began getting a thick brown coating, which concerned me… but apparently not enough.)
Because I had seen such positive results, I decided to begin ingesting diluted 35% hydrogen peroxide, starting with one drop in a cup of distilled water, 3 times a day. I increased the dose by one drop each time (i.e., 2 drops 3 times a day on the second day, and so forth.)
On the second day, I felt great. But as the days proceeded and I increased the dose, I became more irritable. I simultaneously felt more tired, yet my body felt as though it could not handle the energy I seemed to have. By the sixth day, I was dragging horribly.
Not five minutes after I had my second dose of 6 drops diluted in about 6 oz of distilled water that day, I suffered a grand mal seizure… The eighth one I've ever had, and the first one in eight years. It was very traumatic for me (and my partner, who witnessed it for the first time ever). I am now not driving for 3 months, and my medication has been increased as a precaution.
I spoke with my homeopath about it. Every epileptic patient she has worked with suffered at least one more seizure as a healing crisis before they were healed. (Naturally, we are addressing this. ) My parents believe it is due to the fact that I have gained about 60 pounds since I began this medication. I believe that this seizure was because of the hydrogen peroxide, mainly because stress and exhaustion tend to precede my seizures, and there was too much correlation for the incident to be a coincidence. Still, I honestly believe that all three scenarios are possible, and my hope is that this was indeed a healing crisis.
In retrospect, I should have listened to my body, and kept the dose at a minimum until I felt well enough to increase it. Still, I write this post as a strong warning for anyone who has suffered seizures in the past that they may have another seizure if they take hydrogen peroxide internally. I had great hope for hydrogen peroxide therapy, but despite what many people have said, this is not an entirely safe therapy, and it must be approached with a great deal of caution. If nothing else, I strongly recommend that anyone who takes hydrogen peroxide internally should listen to their body; if you feel worse, at least stay on the same dose until you feel better. Don't hesitate to decrease a dose or discontinue this therapy altogether if you don't feel so good.
Let my comments be a side-effect caution: I began the ramp up treatment of 3 drops of 35% peroxide and adding a drop a day doing this only one time a day. I got up 13 drops, stayed on it a few days, and decided to go back down a drop a day. When I got down to a low dose, I started having sudden anxiety attacks and depression which I thought were due to losing my office due to sickness and not being able to work and my wife working now all the time to make up the difference and a separation anxiety from that. For two weeks it has been a problem and it hit me hardest last night. I had bad anxiety, but realized also that I had lightheadedness. I thought that perhaps I was hyperventilating so I breathed in a plastic bag (could not find paper) for several minutes and then again, and the overwhelming anxiety lifted completely. I was surprised that worked so well that I would recommend it to any sudden anxiety that appears to see if it would help despite not recognizing it as hyperventilation.
Food grade Hydrogen Peroxide is 100% safe, if used correctly. A person may have "healing crises." This certainly is not the peroxide's fault. It may be that we did not administer is correctly or had a healing crisis.
I am currently doing research to see if H2O2 will help youths who suffer from Epilepsy. So if anyone has information that it has helped them, please inform me. Thanks
My son has epilepsy. Would be interested in updates about your research.
Are you still doing your study on H202 and seizures. We just started using is Dec. 27, 2017 on a daily basis. We, is my son, husband and myself. Please let me know. thanks, Sharon
Have you tried the keto diet? It has been pretty successful with a lot of epileptics. There are a LOT of great recipes now, it's a very different way to cook, but I needed to go on this for health reasons, and sure enough things are starting to clear up. for their flours they use coconut and almond. But most of their recipes are high fat and moderate protein. This is what the brain needs.
I started taking h2o2 4 mos ago. Started with 3 drops in 8 oz distilled water, and built up to 25 drops 2 x daily. I continue to take the 25 drops 2xdaily. I am 74 years old, 5′ 10″, 155 lbs, non smoker, work out every day, eat healthy, and on no prescription medication. I have fought cancer since ’01 with diet, exercise, and rife machines, also had tuberculosis in ’62 with moderate advanced case, hospitalized 4 months, was completely cured and no relapses.
Since taking HP for approx 4 months total, I have had painful boils, and cold and flu like symptoms, but the symptoms have escalated in the last 9 days. I have developed a deep cough, sore throat, very low energy almost like I have a virus or flu bug and can do very little work which I’m normally pretty high energy.
I do not throw up or have any intestinal discomfort. I have no fever, no sinus irritation. But a terrible nagging cough for 9 days. I purchased a Vicks Warm Mist humidifier yesterday to see if it will make me feel better, and stop the coughing, return my energy level.
Do I have a toxic build up? What would you suggest to get my energy back??
Everett, One would use H2O2 drops as a treatment phase but not long-term. Ideally you would want to slowly graduate from the H2O2 drops and begin using “antioxidants” (of which are many kinds) to insure protection for cells. Lots of good nutrition plus antioxidants would suffice any somewhat healthy person. Any of the many forms of detoxing are recommended on a routine basis to keep “clean” on the inside. Hope this helps.
Yes, you have a toxic build-up – but it’s not caused by the H202. The H202 is triggering detox of toxins your body has accumulated over the years.
It is best not to stop the H202, but maybe reduce it for a while just to let your body continue to detox. Having been reading through the whole area on HP, time after time people post that the HP made them sick.
We have been brainwashed into believing that anything that makes us feel rotten is an ‘illness’. No, it’s just the body’s way of off-loading what it doesn’t want. The body will use any outlet it can to detox – coughs (lungs), colds (sinus/throat/nose), rashes, sores, boils, spots, zits, eczema, psoriasis (skin), diarrhea (bowels), cystitis (bladder) conjunctivitis (eyes), and will often send the toxins out through the nearest or best available outlet.
Because our lifestyles often prevent our bodies from being able to detox properly – the first sniffle gets us running to the Doc for a ‘suppression’ tablet – the toxins are often driven deep into the body rather than out of it.
HP gets the cells working far better – and far more able to detox. If people were to read far more information before jumping in to this, they would then understand what to expect.
It will pass, and keeping on with the HP, even a lower dose, will help it to detox faster. Stopping the HP can often just prolong the detox.
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…
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.
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.
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.
To Yannick, This site http://drinkh2o2.com/ has very good info about H202 and will explain what is going on.
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.
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.
Hi Kate…when you take it 3 times a day, is it on an empty stomach? I am going to put a few drops into the water bowl for my dog, Zeus. He has lumps throughout his body. I've been treating him with Stem Cell supplements with some success, but want to try the food grade H2O2 in his water (well water). I am going to start taking it as well as my body hurts from arthritis. Any suggestions from you or anyone please?
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.
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!
My ND told me it is fine for me take food grade 3%hydrogen peroxide, and I can work my way to more drops. Start with one. For those of you who are concerned with safety, or are uncertain if it has stabilizers, then seriously consider other oxygen like cell food, liquid oxygen, or oxy blast, do your research. I would go with similar product that is specifically made for humans.
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.
I love using FGHP for various reasons but absolutely cannot tolerate the taste. Throwing it back up happens frequently. So, I have started putting the FGHP in empty veggie caps!
Problem solved. Anyone else tried this?
Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide kills harmful bacteria in your gut, not healthy bacteria. It's great that you're taking probiotics. Please do your research more thoroughly before posting. I would also advise taking conventional medicine studies with a grain of salt as they are tweaked to fit their agenda.
Food grade hydrogen peroxide is available at 3% concentration; it is certainly much safer to handle than the 35% version. Some health food stores carry it, including Whole Foods – DS
H2O2 Doesn't "kill of bad bacteria". It creats an inhospitable environment. This is an important distinction because you aren't killing off the bacteria in the stomach. Supplementing with probiotics (sporogenes) will add good bacteria into the stomach. Wanted to make that distinction clear, as it was confusing to me at first.
I have diluted 12% HP down to 3% using distilled water and am about to start the program for my dad who is 86yrs old and has Pulmonary Fibrosis. Can you please let me know how the takes these drops, straight in the mouth or with water/ juice and how much of it.
Many thanks, Sanjay
According to a book I have on hydrogen peroxide, food grade hydrogen peroxide is indeed just oxygen. it should be diluted with distilled water, I have seen first hand the benefits.
To add to the knowledge, Lactic bacteria can live and reproduce healthily with or without oxygen – and they are the main ones in our guts – therefore the Hydrogen peroxide should not harm them.
If you want to know more about fermentation and the bacteria, have a read at this, about sourkrout-making – as some schools say they should be sealed and others say they don't need to be.
Because of that, I would definitely trust that taking 3 drops of 12% food-grade HP in an 8 ounce glass of water to be totally safe to my gut flora. We will see, it is coming in a few days… Very interesting conversation though.
i have been taking the h202 35% food grade. I have lost weight and among other things happen to me for the positive. I am very happy about using the 35% g2o2 food grade. may be you used something that wasn't that pure.
Too much, just too much. The dose I am familiar with is 3 drops to 16 ounces of water. I don't think I will push for any higher than that. I can taste it a little, am trying to heal a stubborn duodenal ulcer. Have you been tested for an ulcer? Are you one the 90 essential nutrients? look up Dead Doctors Don't Lie and Somebody Needs to Go To Jail on you tube, with Joel Wallach. Everyone still needs the mighty 90. And there are a lot of companies, finally, that are getting with it and providing some good liquid multiples. I like Source of Life Gold, but there is a Plexus craze now, which is along the same lines. Good formula, not as good as the source of life Gold, in my reading of the label, but it's a good one. As Ted recommends, take it on empty stomach and wait 50 minutes before taking any food or nutrients- the peroxides will oxidize your nutrients and you don't want that. But again, try no more than 3 drops per large glass of water and if that still isn't working, maybe H2O2 isn't what you need. Try maybe 1 teaspoon of baking soda in 16 ounces of water on empty stomach.
We had been using food grade hydrogen peroxide in a humidifier for many months.
My nearsightedness has suddenly gotten worse for near distance, for example, signs in supermarkets. My boyfriends’ eyes have gotten a lot worse in conditions of glare and haze, he had photosensitivity before but it has become a big problem.
We stopped using the hydrogen peroxide in the humidifier because that is the only new variable.
Does anyone know if hydrogen peroxide caused these problems? At no time did our eyes feel irritated or did I feel he was putting in too much. If damage was caused, what would reverse it?
Both of your symptoms indicate that the “lens” of your inner eyeballs could be getting clouded over by cataract-like distortions…. possibly due to the h2o2 free radical damage [?].
There is a protein-glycogen substace called acetyl-L-cysteine [spelling?] that is being used as eye drops to reverse cataracts. Improves about 75% of people who try it.
search it on a scroogle search.
http://curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=864937#iRemedies Especially for Cataracts
*The use of carrots is considered beneficial in the treatment of cataract. Take plenty of raw carrots daily or else drink two glasses of fresh carrot juice, one each in the morning and evening.
*Eat two or three cloves of raw garlic daily to clean the crystalline lens of the eye. The cloves should be chewed slowly.
*Extract the juice of pumpkin flowers and apply externally on the eyelids twice daily to prevent further clouding of the crystalline lens.
*Mix an equal quantity of aniseed and coriander powder together with one teaspoon of brown sugar, and take the mixture in doses of 12 grams in the morning and evening.
*Place a few drops of raw organic honey in the eyes twice or more each day. This is an ancient Egyptian remedy which is reported to have benefitted many people with cataracts.
*Finely grind seven kernels of raw almonds together with half a gram of black pepper and place in a half cup of water. Sweeten with raw honey and drink the mixture to help the eyes regain vigor and clarity.
*Twice daily, close your eyes and bathe them with hot (but not scalding) water containing Epsom salts. In addition, take an Epsom salts bath at least twice a week. Remain in the bath from twenty-five to thirty-five minutes till you perspire freely. After the bath, cool off gradually.
When it comes to eye remedies, the best results may well come from combining one or more of the suggested remedies. ——————————————
Alpha-lipoic acid (ALA) is a small organic molecule with a disultide bond. It is a superb antioxidant that is soluble in both water and fat. ALA is an important coenzyme for the production of acetyl coenzyme A. Dihydorlipoic acid (DHLA), it’s reduced form, is an electron donor that recycles other fundamental antioxidants (vitamin C, vitamin E, and glutathione). ALA and DHJLA are superb free radical scavenger themselves because they neutralize peroxyle radicals , hydroxyl radicals  and singlet oxygen .
ALA is also a metal chelator that removes mercury from tissues , prevents calcium oxalate crystals (stones) from forming in the kidneys [21, chelates copper , and removes arsenic .
Lately, there has been a great explosion in ALA research. The lipoic acid/dihydrolipoic acid redox couple inhibits viral replication by stabilizing the NFK beta transcription factor , blocks the development of cataracts , protects the kidneys form aminoglycoside damage , insulates the pancreatic islet cells form inflammatory assault , inhibits thymocyte apoptosis , and stimulates the production of helper T cells . In addition, the toxic side effects of cancer chemotherapy can be attenuated with the use of ALA  and it protects bone marrow from free radical damage secondary to ionizing radiation. .
I would be very concerned about taking Alpha Lipoic Acid if as stated it chelates copper and iron. These are two very important minerals for the body. Copper as I understand it is one of the most important minerals.
Has anyone ever had red eyes from taking the dosage three time a day. I started getting red eyes when I hit six drops a day.
I just started taking H2O2 (35% FGHP). I am at 5 drops twice a day. I noticed red eyes yesterday, I am not sure if it is because of H2O2 or something else. In a few days, I am planning to go for 6-10 drops 3 times. I will update results.
The HP has triggered detox in my eyes. Gobs of gloop and crusts in the morning. Fantastic. Better out than in! Red eyes is just detox. It should pass. Keep going.
Heavy metal interaction with H202 caution. I had been happily using h202 for several months, then started have concerning heart palpitations, though I was not linking this in any way to h202. I live in an area with high naturally-occurring arsenic in the water supply. A neighbor mentioned that most filters do not filter out arsenic and that I should be buying drinking water. This little tidbit caused me to look up arsenic poisoning – which fit my symptoms exactly: headaches, confusion, drowsiness and heart arrythmias. The latter is where the h202 caution comes in. I read that “arsenic in cells stimulates the production of h202. When h202 reacts with certain metals such as iron or manganese, it produces a highly reactive hydroxyl radical, ” which can cause neurological imbalances and disruptions in the electrical-voltage complex of the heart, resulting in disruptive intervals in the QT (that’s that lovely little bio-battery we all have that keeps our heart beating at regular intervals). I stopped taking h202 immediately and stopped drinking my water. I have begun a heavy metal detox (I am also having old mercury/silver fillings removed right now) and will complete this before I go back on the h202. I think it important that, if readers have been exposed to metals or other harmful toxins, they may want to consult with health care providers about h202 interactions before proceeding with its use.
Hi TedThis is Sunny from India. I am a 35 year old woman with two kids aged 7 and 31/2 years. After my second son is born I got severe hyper pigmentation and Melasma and also my immunity came down and I put on 10 kg s of weight. I get frequent colds and cough which are so severe that I used to be on bed for at least two days a week. Then I saw Earth clinic and started Food Grade H2O2 therapy and also Baking Soda. I am using right now from past four months and I want to stop now as my sicknesses came down drastically. But one side effect is that my face and neck has turned to almost black after I started using H2O2 and Baking Soda. In a country where skin color and complexion is given predominant importance I am not even able to step out of the house. I tried many cosmetic treatments like laser, peels which only further aggravated my problem. They told me to avoid working with computer as it sends UV rays and increases pigmentation. They gave me many suggestions to avoid sun through windows also at home, avoid going out in the car too in daylight even with sunscreen. These are so impractical for my lifestyle and anyhow I am avoiding direct sun exposure. My rest of the body is a shade better as usual but it is also darkened a little after using H2O2. Only my face, neck and feet are very hyper pigmentated. So my now only hope is alternative and folk remedies. So Ted please help me why all this happened. Does H2O2 aggravate hyper pigmentation? Now my only help is YOU. So please reply at your earliest convenience. Thank you
Kind Regards Sunny
Actually I have made update in the protocol here to make it more effective. I have a few cases of melasma that seems to respond better with the magnesium chloride solution remedy. Basically it is made of 60-70% magnesium chloride and 30 to 40% water. The solution is applied to the skin four or five times a day. So if the hydrogen peroxide did not work, the magnesium helped. There is another one that had similar problems and seems to respond to B2 100 mg, folic acid 10 mg and B12, but this one seems helped gradual clearing up of the skin after about a month of supplementation. It’s important however that bowel movement is maintained at once or preferably twice a day, by taking perhaps 20 to 30 drops of magnesium, 30 minutes before meals. If there’s enough cases of melasma, I can at least say which ones worked the best, but what I do know is in some cases of melasma, it turns out to be a vitamin B deficiency. That’s why B2, B12, and folic acid works. However, some B50 vitamin B complex may need to be taken also, but that’s usually twice a week or three times a week maximum to once a week minimum.
Here Ted posted as an update for the protocol to make it more effective. But there is no any protocol post. For me it seems there was a protocol post which he made and later updated it. EC, did you miss any of the Ted posts regarding this. Please look into it and clarify at your earliest convenience. You can e-mail me also. Thank you
H2O2 might aggravate hyperpigmentation, but I haven’t seen a case here that had it. Magnesium chloride seems to be most consistent in resolving this but it is rather slow. In some cases if hyperpigmentation is due to sun exposure, usually aloe vera oil works, but is applied lightly. In yet another case, I found melasma came from a vitamin B deficiency, such as B2, riboflavin and was quickly resolved in a week or two. However, I prefer to try B2, with some vitamin B complex. Usually B2 dosage I used is about 100-250 mg.
Does hydrogen peroxide treatment causes the body hair color to change? Since the beginning of the current treatment of hydrogen peroxide that I start I notice that my eyebrows hair becomes brown/ blond (my normal hair color is black). I tried to look for any kind of post about it- and I could not find any post that talks about such an event. Is this normal or am I the only report on the hydrogen peroxide Therapy I already went through the daily level of three times a day and right now I’m taking the 3% HYDROGEN PEROXIDE every 3 days 20 drops and soon I’ll start to take 20 drops once a week.
HP will definitely cause hair colour change if applied directly onto the hairs. It is an ingredient in hair colour. Internally, I haven’t seen any reports on this site but I do remember that at some stage the New York Times(I think it was that paper)published an article about a university study that claimed an excess of HP in the body caused premature greyness. They weren’t talking about ingestion of HP but conversion of another chemical to HP within the body.
I have just started h2o2 therapy orally and would like to know if bloating and uncomfortable bladder is normal. I started with 3 drops 35% hp to 230mls water.
I have tried Hydrogen peroxide as it supposedly has many cures, so I was using it to clean my teeth. I gargled with it one morning and 4 hours later almost ended up in the emergency. I had so bad pains that I never experienced in my life, I thought it was having something worse than a heart attack. It was like heartburn, tightness, everything mixed together. Well after 2 hours it subsided and I then went to my doctors for a complete physical, which still taking tests. He realized then I must of swallowed some of the stuff and luckily it did not do more damage. It could’ve burned right through my insides. He thought I was crazy to do this. Never again will I use the stuff. Please do not use it for teeth or internally at all. I warn you all. Thanks Laurie
I’ve used HP as a mouth rinse (including keeping it in my mouth for several minutes sometimes) for at least a year, and I have had absolutely no ill effects from it, nor any damage to my mouth or teeth.
I have never gargled with it (don’t see the need). Obviously you want to avoid swallowing it.
ANSWER To Laurie from Sudbury, Ontario, Canada:
Don’t gargle with h2o2, especially not with 3% solution if you are not very careful.
For mouth hygiene it does not have to be 3%. I make my own at 2% and it is quite effective. It could be 1.5% or 1% or the way you can tolerate it.
What you do is you swish with it, and when it is all foam you spit it out. And rinse with water.
1-You can swish with diluted h2o2 solution.
2-You can swish with solution 1 mixed with some baking soda. The baking soda will neutralize the acidity in the mouth, making the h2o2 more effective for killing the bacteria.
3-Spray your toothbrush with h2o2 and put some baking soda on it and brush your teeth. Rinse with water, than swish with solution 1.
search for homemade mouthwash and tooth paste.
google “baking soda mouthwash”

Alain from Ottawa
Maybe you used a different concentration? I think that people should always mention the concentration of what they are using in cases where many concentrations are available! Thanks!
Could you please post what concentration of H2O2 you were using as your report is very unusual. Were you using food grade H2O2, how much were you using i.e volume, number of drops at what concentration?
I gargle H2o2 twice daily with no side effects 5ml in 50ml of water, I have ingested H2o2 also with no side effects. 3% food grade always.
I was told by a Pharmacist friend that I would get Cancer from H2o2, conventional medicine does not like alternative remedies and seeing how H2o2 is a known Cancer buster I did not bother to respond. I also suspect your doctor jumped at the first and easiest diagnosis that being a reaction to H2o2.
My husband, who has a degree in Chemistry, advised me never to use H202 in any way or form. According to him it is a very powerful, dangerous chemical. As I know nothing about these things I have to take his advice but I always follow with interest what people post here about the subject. In my country, Portugal, it used to be used to stop bleeding from wounds for example and to make the hair blond.
Half way through completing 20 day master Cleanse lemonade fast I started taking daily dosage of 35% food grade Hydrogen Peroxide in carefully monitored drops increasing to limit of 25 & subsequently decreasing dosage down to 3 drops, 3 times a day. On day 20 I felt as good as I ever have in my life
1 week after I developed continual pins & needles in my hands & fingers & weakness & instability in my legs that has stopped me from running daily in the gym.
I am currently awaiting results from a complete clinical analysis to determine what is wrong.
has anyone experienced these or similar symptoms or can anyone offer a diagnosis?
After the 7th day of 35% h2o2 therapy I had to stop. I noticed shortly after beginning the therapy my stool were almost black. I was afraid it was causing some sort of bleeding. My stools prior to this therapy were normal. Hopefully I didn’t damage myself with this experiment. I was up to 10 drop 3x per day in 7-8oz. distilled water. Never had bowel movements that dark before that I can recall.
I would be careful of using distilled water long term. It depletes minerals because it is an active absorber. I know there are a lot of myths out there about useage. But, there are facts. I wanted to find something that everyone would trust so I turned to a post by Ted in the distilled water remedies section dated 12/16/2008.
“1. Long term used of distilled water is not healthy2. Distilled water only short term use may help detoxify, but never use more than for a couple of days.3. Distilled water depletes the body of bicarbonates, causing metabolic acidosis in the long run.4. Some people use medicine added to distilled water to help absorption. This doesn’t work for me because you are going from a lower concentration of distilled water to a higher concentration blood. Hence, more concentration of blood would not help absorption.”
I’m not sure I understand what peroxide can do to distilled water but, I am concerned that it could make it worse and acidic.
Perhaps someone with more knowledge can enlighten us… but, thought a word of caution should be raised regarding long term use… which the h2o2 therapy is for. I think Alain from Ottawa, Ontario in an answer to Lucy below was a good idea. She mentioned adding baking soda to the mix. Which sounds like a really good idea according to the information provided by Ted regarding bicarbonate absorption.
Comment to Rainman from Central, Vt about hydrogen peroxide and distilled water (internal use)
As per http://cancertutor.com/Cancer/HydrogenPeroxide.html
“I would not put the drops of hydrogen peroxide in anything but highly distilled water (grocery store distilled tap water is not acceptable, either get double distilled tap water or distilled natural water). The reason is that other chemicals in water may cause a chemical reaction that prematurely strips the extra oxygen atom from the hydrogen peroxide atoms.”
As per the possibility of detrimental long term use of distilled water, I saw both sides of the arguments. Those recommending distilled water would say that the minerals on water (especially hard water) are not bio-available and will create with time mineral deposits and stones. I am not saying that I agree with this. At the moment I don’t know enough.
My feeling is that for a person whose pH is balanced, this may not be a problem, and that a person whose is acidic will have its body try to use those “non bio-available” minerals and creates deposits and stones.
The black stool is toxins being expelled by your body. It means the H2O2 is working. When I first started psyllium husk, my stool got very dark. It gradually – over several months – lightened back up. This was the toxins in my digestive tract. (My cholesterol went from 227 to 186 in three months. ) Recently I started chlorella and my stools are very dark again. I am happy to see this because I know what it means.
I can’t figure out this thing about using distilled water. Rainwater isn’t distilled, neither is sea or river water, or ground water, yet they all contain trace elements of H202! I can understand not putting H202 in chlorinated water, but not in filtered spring or mineral water. Healing artesian springs contain both H202 and minerals.
I also don’t understand why the H202 needs to be so radically increased. H202 in ‘living’ water is only in very minute amounts yet is beneficial. More is not necessarily better. Surely regular ingestion of minute amounts (1 – 3 drops 35% HP in 8oz water) is better in the long run than large unnatural quantities that cannot be tolerated very well. Healing spa water often contains in the region of 0. 25% concentration. If that is healing at that level wouldn’t that be enough?
I was doing a 6% h202 therapy on myself by drinking the food grade type but i started getting ear and throat pains after drinking it for a few days and i even have a lump on my left side neck where my throat is.
Do you think i should keep on drinking it and put some eucalyptus oil in my ear and gargle with water and the oil while im going thru the therapy if i must keep on taking the H202?
Answer to Lucy from Sleepy Hollow about H2O2 side effect
You should tell us what you exactly did.
The maximum concentration for internal use is .5% as per Ted’s“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.
Tumors 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.”
To reduce 6% to 0.5% take 1 volume of FG 6% H2O2 mixed with 11 volumes of distilled water. But since it is the maximum you should start with much lower concentration and increase gradually. You can start as low as 0.05% (and even lower). H2O2 is powerful stuff. It is better to be on the safe side.
-Use Food Grade H2O2.-Drink the diluted solution on empty stomach.

I have a question for anyone who might know.
I am on the H202 oral treatment and following according to Ted’s recommendations and now have the detox symptom of a bad head cold. I know that this is detox because I don’t get colds!! I haven’t for many many years. But now my children have this same head cold; and are NOT on the treatment, so I’m wondering if a detox symptom like a cold can be contagious. I understand that h202 can kill parasites in the body and I’ve learned from Hulda Clark that inside a parasite lives many viruses including cold viruses, and that when a parasite dies it releases them into the person-host. So this detox of a head-cold might be contagious then right?
Has anyone read anything like this or had a similar thing happen? I then gave the kids all 5 drops of h202 hoping it would stop this cold – but it hasn’t done anything. Any ideas?
I have been ingesting the 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide, diluted to a 3% solution…I am currently taking 1oz in 5ozs of water, 3xs daily, for a week and then I increase…however during the course of this protocol I have noticed that it is exacerbating my immune system conditions…also, when checking my urine ph levels, I was already acidic, but it seems to have made it worse for me. I am at a 5.5 when taking it…can anyone suggest why this is the case and what I can do to make myself more alkaline? Would a combination of baking soda, or apple cider vinegar do the trick?
And here are my thoughts on the 3% store bought hydrogen peroxide:
First of all I have seen all of the postings, via the internet, about using the 3% store bought hydrogen peroxide as mouth wash, etc. so I tried it…on the back of the bottle it says to mix it with an equal amount of water…well, first off I tried it mixed with an equal amount of water and I also tried a miniscule amount of it straight…as mouthwash…I gurgled it around in my mouth, morning and night, after brushing…it made my gums extra sensitive and made them crack open and bleed, all over…the one thing that it did do was kill the toothache that I had…so, perhaps I did not dilute it enough, or properly, etc. and again, I state that this is only my personal experience, and as such, it may not be applicable to everyone else, but it is important to note, nonetheless…
In 2007 I went on the h202 therapy and so did some of my friends. They had reactions like diahrea, stomach cramps and such but plowed through it.
I didn’t have any reaction but I started out with 1 drop per day in 6-8 oz of water but also added Colloidol (spell?) silver-they work great together. I worked my way up to 11 or 17 drops per day with no reactions.
It may be that sometimes the detoxing in the body that goes on can be somewhat painful or a discompfort and I have read that the stomach may blow out a bit-theres a lot of stuff in the body that is dead and the H202 is eating it up, but not harming the healthy tissues.
Anyway, it was a great experience for me because it lowered my hepatitic C viral load from 23,000,000 copies down to 5,000,000 copies. I stopped because you ARE supposed to NOT EAT 3 hours before and for 1 hour after, maybe that is why I didn’t have problem with it.
I love coffee first thing so I made sure I woke up during the night/am-3-4am to drink the H202 (kept the container I was using in a bucket of ice water to keep it cool during the night)and went back to sleep. This way I wasn’t going throughout the day with out eating for such long periods of time.That is why I stopped, but I am starting back slowly now to kill the rest of the virus. I am starting with 3% in a gallon of water so that I don’t have to fast yet and will work my way back to the normal protocol of NOT EATING 3 hours before and 1 hour after-I like to eat! 😎RJ
I tried the popular internet dosing routine for the diluted 35% food grade Hydrogen Peroxide protocol, about ten days ago. The protocol that I attempted was as follows:
Day 1: 3 drops, 3xs a dayDay 2: 4 drops, 3xs a dayDay 3: 5 drops, 3xs a dayDay 4: 6 drops, 3xs a dayDay 5: 7 drops, 3xs a dayDay 6: 8 drops, 3xs a dayDay 7: 9 drops, 3xs a dayDay 8: 10 drops, 3xs a dayDay 9: 12 drops, 3xs a dayDay 10: 14 drops, 3xs a dayetc.etc. up to 25 drops, 3xs a day.
I was only able to complete this protocol for at least ten days.
When I first began I diluted the 35% food grade Hydrogen Peroxide drops in about 6-8ozs of water. It immediately began killing my stomach and so I increased my water to about 9-11 ozs…11 ozs is way too much water for me to ingest at one time…it made my stomach feel as if it were going to blow up…then someone suggested that I dilute the 35% food grade Hydrogen Peroxide in 8ozs of milk which I tried, to no avail…In the past I have suffered from stomach ulcers and this regimen most certainly exacerbated my condition, or perhaps created a new one…it felt like it was ripping my stomach in half…now, perhaps this solution must be further diluted, I am not sure, but what I am sure of is that the initial protocol, that is widely distributed via the internet, was without a doubt a tremendously painful experience for me. I am not in any way indicating that it will most certainly be someone else’s experience, verbatim, but nonetheless I feel the need to share what has happened to me in order to possibly aide someone else in their attempts. I do not think that the former protocol for diluted 35% food grade Hydrogen Peroxide is good for ulcerous stomachs…you must be extremely careful if you have these issues…that is really all I can say…
If you have an ulcer you should deal with that first. 2 ounces of fresh cabbage juice 5 times a day for a couple of weeks will usually do the trick. Most ulcers are caused by NSAIDS (aspirin, Tylenol, Advil, etc.)so you need to watch those. If this doesn’t improve things you’ll need to have your doctor run a few tests to see if something larger is going on.
Your stomach might have felt that way due to the way you ate. You are NOT supposed to take the dose one hour before or after eating due to the acid in your stomach dissolving and the oxygen going through your body. This is true. Because I have a book that explains everything. You can try again with the schedule of no eating and hopefully you will have different results.
I’ve been on the hydrogen peroxide therapy for 13 days now. My question is: Has anyone noticed a change with taste. Food just doesn’t taste the same. Is it Me?!
I am new to this site and haven’t spotted where questions should be submitted, sorry. Can I please ask this question here and you put it where it belongs? I hope you agree it’s important. Here it is:-
“physicians like Dr. Farr believed that taking hydrogen peroxide orally could have a corrosive and tumorous effect on the stomach and small intestine and advised against using it. There is animal research supporting this caution”.
He advocated intravenous treatment.
Does anyone know what these animal studies were, and what amounts of H2O2 were involved? Should we be worried about this?
Please help!!!! I have fibromyalgia, emphysema, dry eyes, and a heart that doesnt rest right. I stared taking 35% hydrogen peroxide over 2 weeks ago and at first was amazed at how good I felt just taking 3 drops a day. After slowing starting to increase the drops each day I am getting alot of side effects. These effects being pain and numbness in my chest and my eyes hurt more with blur vision. I am now up to 9 drops 1 time a day and need to know if I should continue or quit and are the side effects I am having a sign that I am getting better or that something is wrong and I should quit? Thanks for any help and thank you.
when u started with the 3 drops, u probably shouldn’t have increased it to 9 drops, that was probably too much if u r feeling sideeffects, u should probably discontinue it until you r feeling better, u do not want it to get too far out of hand, then u will have more problems than u can handle, good luck
Hydrogen peroxide has a lot of great uses, but I would be careful taking internally. I bought it as an O2 vitamin but I didn’t notice any benefits. Try applying to a stain because it is really good at cleaning. Apply to a cut and see how it sizzles. I would be careful with the dosage. 9 drops sounds like too much.
hi i have been taking colloidal silver for 3 weeks then stopped and started taking a teaspoon of h202 4 times a day for 2 or 3 days i stop because of discomfort…on the 3rd day i was urinating brown and cloudy for 4 times urinating then it went away but after that i started feeling my kidneys for my 1st time as a dull aching pain from both of them and lower abdomine pain please tell me whats happening and whats wrong and how do i fix this its starting to swell and dull pain getting slightly more noticable..i went to doctor and told him what was happening and did a uro but he said i have nothing wrong as seen in urin…please let me know if i am in danger or what…!!!
One teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide? Of course you took too much. No wonder. Where on earth did you get that dosage? I truly hope you were not taking 35% food grade. Stop drinking peroxide! You are only supposed to start with a few drops. Drink a gallon of distilled water a day to flush out your kidneys.
The quantity you took is too high if you took 35% hydrogenperoxide. But with regards to your symptoms: symptoms are good. They mean that the hydrogenperoxide found an area that it deemed it needed correction.
I have had, since I started, February 3rd… 43 days ago, I have had several 2-3 day periods when I didn’t feel well, then I had extremely smelly urine and/or fecal matters for a day or two, and thereafter I had a 2-3 week long clarity, increased mobility, reduced cravings, etc.
So I say, pray for “side effects” because they are not. If you are like me, storing lots of poisons from lifestyle, you want it to be digested by the hydrogen peroxide and empty it through the elimination channels.
One serious warning: if you don’t want to re-absorb the poisons, make sure you have a serious colon cleansing to start with. Enemas, colonics, or any of the commercially available colonic cleansing supplements are good. Just do it.
I didn’t do it, and I think, at least partially, that is why I had so many healing crisis in the 45 days.
Please let us know how you are doing? OK?
H202 not to be messed with:
I have taken 35% food grade h202 several times through the last 7 years of my life. always starting at 1 drop and increasing 1 drop a day as far as 25 drops and coming down in the same manner sometimes staying at a certain dosage for a few days.
One day i felt i was getting sick. I hadnt taken h202 in over a year. i decided to experiment with it. i took 10 drops one day skipped a few days and did it again. this is not reccomended as it caused my body severe problems. The h202 shocked my system into a clensing crisis through the skin via Herpes Zoster better known as Shingles.
it was very painful and the nerve which was affected followed into my eye and caused me to get iritis. the iritis caused my vision to go blurry in that eye. I was able to get steriod drops from the opthamologist and managed to rid myself of it after a few months.
I am a firm believer in h202 and its healing abilities but heed my warning: H202 is not to be taken for granted.
Dear Friends: DO NOT use hydrogen peroxide in enemas or colonics. i tried it once and ended up in the hospital. when the HP hits the bacteria in the colon it explodes and causes severe painful cramping and uncontrollable contractions. i was sick for almost a week and put on a iv for dehydration. ive talked to other people who have done this and ended up in the emergency room too. i am a believer in hydrogen peroxide cures. i inhale it and have not had a cold or coldsore of been sick in 3 years. honest!! inhaling is the best method in my experience. i even swallow whats left in my mouth and never have a problem but never never never use it in an enema!!! it could kill you. it could cause intestine to burst and bleed to death. a painful horrible death.
You’re using too much. Try just a drop.
Just to let people know that I got a condition known as hairy tongue about a year ago when I first started messing about with H202. If you are going to use it for a mouth wash, make sure that even the 3% Peroxide is diluted. At most, the ratio is supposed to be 1:5 in the water.
Anyway, I took it straight and it caused a horrible unsightly condition called hairy tongue which I have NOT been able to get rid of. I have posted something on this site about six months ago – tried everything, salt water, h202 dilute, lemon water, brushing it with a scraper etc and NOTHING works.
I am not knowing Hydrogen Peroxide. I am sure it is good stuff and has its uses but don’t use it as a mouthwash like I did without diluting it. Be careful when experimenting.
Take Care (and if anyone knows something that can help me, please let me know)
re hairy tongue from hydrogen peroxide: I heard that you can restore the body’s natural defense (an enzyme???) contained in our saliva. So find someone to kiss, and soon it will be naturally consumed. 🙂
in response to the hydrogen peroxide swisher that ended up with ‘hairy tongue’- I spoke to a chinese medicine/natural doctor about this, as the clinic recommends swishing with it once a week in oral hygiene care. She told me that hairy tongue is a fungal reaction, and that the reason this would have happened is one would have to have a lot of fungus and bacteria in the mouth. In an act of detoxification, as the fungus and bacteria is pulled out from swishing, this COULD happen (not common, though.) Their recommendation was to keep swishing once a week to continue the detox process.
To the boy with the ‘hairy tongue’ It sounds like you have “thrush” go see a doctor.
I got the ‘hairy tongue’ symptom also. But, I followed Ted’s info somewhere that the HP should be diluted – I was taking 3%. I stopped taking the HP for a week, then began with a diluted form and my hairy tongue disappeared, and did not occur again. It did not seem like thrush was involved. Gigi
I have been drinking 6 drops of hydrogen peroxide in a bottle of water 2 times daily for 3 days and have developed 4 HUGE painful zits on my chin. They feel almost like boils. Any reasons as to why?
Hi Beth, Those huge 4 zits could just be coincicence or it could be that your peroxide is making some bad guys exit through the closest route – your skin.
I have read that toothpaste will dry up those zits but I personally would probably use peroxide externally on them because it doesn’t contain all that toxin called fluoride that brings us other unwanted problems, and it does kill off bad guys.
Hi Joyce, Thank you for your speedy reply. I have a quick question though, should I continue the peroxide-water? I’m not sure. I would like to clean my liver but not sure how to start? any comments are appreciated. Thank you so much for your care and your time, Bev.
If your problem is history, why continue the treatment? You can find a good liver cleanse at any health food store and you will likely find that they are loaded with two weeds everyone is trying to eradicate from their yards: thistle and dandelions! Both are known to be liver friendly.
You may have experienced the skin eruptions because of the toxins leaving your body quickly– certain parts of the face correspond to organs too- I remember reading once that the chin reacts from the liver- ..boils tend to hurt reeeally bad…and go deep into the tissue–I think you’d know …hydrogen peroxide on them will help clear them out. I think I would tough it out and don’t stop too early out of fear…that’s usually why people don’t get results they are seeking. Best luck to you!
If you will look up boils on the EC site, you will find that Turmeric will help you get rid of boils. It is so good that it even helps heal MRSA boils. Give it a look-see.
Caution drinking Hydrogen Peroxide: I tried drinking less than a quarter capful of Rite Aid brand 3% hydrogen peroxide this morning in a 12 oz glass of water. I immediately felt my body tingling and I drank another glass of water to dilute the effect. Within minutes I felt a weird sensation and had to rush to the bathroom. I have been rushing to the bathroom practically all morning. I did not know whether to laugh or cry because I suffer from chronic constipation and I thought I welcome the frequent bathroom visits but not due to an upset stomach. I drank another glass of water and continued feeling funny. I went to Rite Aid and spoke to the pharmacist who told me I should be okay. I felt better after having a late breakfast. I have a sensitive stomach and I was told the HP may have been too much of an irritant for it. Just a word of caution if you are going to use 3% like I did for the first time, maybe you should start with one drop and see the effect or diarrhea and a racing pulse may be the side effect for a while. It is now about five hours later and I feel almost normal.
I would never ingest over-the-counter HP, because of the additives. That is probably what made you nauseous!
Over the counter 3.5% HP is NOT food grade, it is for topical use and has metallics in it that are harmful when consumed. 35% FOOD GRADE HP (diluted) is the only HP safe for consuming.
I have been on this site for quite some time now, and this is the first that I have heard of about using h2o2 for a laxative, is there anymore information on h202 for a laxative. please inform me, thanx
