Hydrogen peroxide therapies can alleviate a number of chronic and acute health conditions, and the methods for hydrogen peroxide foot baths found on these pages can be the simplest form of H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide) supplementation.
While it is naturally antimicrobial, when its molecules break down inside the body hydrogen peroxide is also said to contribute additional oxygen supplies to the bloodstream. Conditions such as cancer are believed to be inhibited or cured in the presence of high blood oxygen levels. Ingestion of H2O2 is one route for hydrogen peroxide therapy, as is injection of food grade H2O2; however, the following treatment ideas can be simpler to apply.
Caution: Only food grade hydrogen peroxide is safe for ingestion, and even then ingesting large amounts can cause vomiting or even death. Even in small amounts of diluted solutions, H2O2 can harm the mucous membranes and at high concentrations (such as 35%) can burn the skin.
Home Remedies: Cancer, arthritis, candida, and other conditions are sometimes treated using ingested or topical hydrogen peroxide therapy.
[YEA] 09/03/2012: Richard Fasanello from Washington, NJ/USA: "My dietary requirements are so stringent that I often find myself without a sufficient period of time to administer orally into an empty stomach. Prompted by the bathwater method I developed a "foot bath" method. I found an unlined "unisex" rubber/plastic boot in a big box store. I bought a size that fit my bare feet. They were then filled and soaked in water for 24 hours to remove any readily soluble materials. After washing the feet with a solution of 1 oz. Mild dish dertergent to 1 qt. 70% IPA (rubbing alcohol), then rinsing and drying, to minimize germs which could use up some of the peroxide effectivness, the boots are donned over bare feet and 1/4 cup of approximately 1% (1oz. 35% food grade added to 1 qt distilled water) peroxide is poured in and a 2 hour soak commences. This may prove to be the closest thing to an IV administration possible and requires no doctor visits/expenses."Replies

There are other products from chemical supplier like "sodium percarbonate" (ingredient of OxyFree), sodiumtetrahydrate", and "sodium monohydrate". How they compare to the FG H2O2 I don't know except from personal experience they seem quite similar, and of course the sodium content is a consideration.
Footbath or whole body bath with these energizes me for several hrs. Supplementing MSM is also a good source of active oxygen."

"sodium perborate tetrahydrate", and "sodium perborate monohydrate"."
06/14/2013: John from Brisbane, Australia replies: "I have concerns about undesirable chemicals leaching from the vessel used for foot the soak. I think distilled water is a good idea but I think it leaches strongly from its containers. I think using glass, stainless steel or maybe ceramic might be better option. Whilst not that practica, I find most effective natural health protocols done properly are typically quite labourious and or messy. I have wondered about how much hydrogen peroxide actually get absorbed via foot soaks and as such I have considrered small quantities of dmso to aid absorbtion but I am not entirely comfortable with the idea yet."
