Hydrogen peroxide is an amazing home cure that treats a number of health ailments. H202 therapy has many benefits; it eliminates infection, reduces pain, detoxes the body and serves a variety of purposes inside and outside the home. It is no wonder that Hydrogen peroxide is considered a “wonder product.”
What Is Hydrogen Peroxide?
Hydrogen peroxide, or H202 as it is scientifically known, comes in a variety of forms. Depending on the concentration of the mixture, the liquid is considered for household use, food grade, or electrical uses. In whatever form, though, hydrogen peroxide is nothing more than oxygen and water combined in a unique ratio to form a germicidal liquid.
More specifically, hydrogen is a liquid comprised of two hydrogen atoms and two oxygen atoms, an arrangement that makes the substance highly reactive. Being so reactive, hydrogen peroxide functions as an oxidizing treatment, which is one reason it can be used in so many different ways.
Why Is H2O2 Such an Effective Remedy?
You can consider hydrogen peroxide one of the best household remedies available, second probably only to apple cider vinegar. Because it is made of just two natural elements, it safely and effectively treats health concerns. Much like ozone, H2O2 actually treats diseases and invasive organisms by oxidation.
When hydrogen peroxide is applied or taken as a remedy, it reacts with organic material and the substance breaks down into its elemental form – separate water and oxygen. This added oxygen in the system creates an environment in which most diseases cannot thrive or even live. This process of oxidation serves a fundamental purpose in restoring wellness and relieving illness.
How Can I Use Peroxide?
As an alternative treatment option, H2O2 serves as a disinfectant that sanitizes through oxidation as well, making it the world’s safest sanitizer. It also fights infection, eliminates toxins, cures bacteria and viruses, and neutralizes germs. With all of these properties, it can be utilized to treat a wide array of common illnesses. Some of the most common ways it is used is in treating sinus infections, cleansing wounds, eliminating parasites, reducing toothaches, detoxing the body, and treating cancer.
1. Sinus Infections
Used as a sinus infection treatment, hydrogen peroxide functions to eliminate the underlying infection. It clears the nasal passages and kills any existing germs to prevent further progression of the condition.
One of the most common uses of H2O2 is as a wound sanitizer. When applied to a wound, the product reacts with the organic matter in the lesion and oxidizes to kill any germs and prevent infection.
As in the other treatment forms, when taken internally, hydrogen peroxide adds oxygen to the body’s internal environment. This oxidized environment is one in which parasites cannot exist, so they are naturally eliminated from the body.
Hydrogen peroxide also serves as a mild anti-inflammatory, so it relieves pain associated with toothaches and other common conditions. It also treats eradicates any germs or infection that are causing the ache.
Eliminating any toxins in the body is an important step to overall wellness. Hydrogen peroxide can be used as a detoxification agent to eliminate several different forms of toxins.
Cancer is one of the newest applications that has been discovered for hydrogen peroxide. In this case, it oxidizes the unhealthy cells to eliminate the cancer without harming the good healthy cells.
Hydrogen peroxide can be utilized in a number of ways. While external application is the most common form of treatment with hydrogen peroxide, the product can actually be used internally when in a diluted form. The best form of treatment for internal use is inhalation therapy.

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!"
05/28/2013: Braveheart from Vancouver, Bc replies: "I used regular store hydrogen peroxide as a douche for a couple of nights when I had an infection and it was fine. Got rid of my infection. The only other think was to also put up vit. C 500mg not the chewable flavoured kind to restore the acidity and then a tablet of acidophilis to restore good bacteria. Gets rid of many vaginosis/yeast/stinky issues. I only did it about 3 times over a 2 year period but way better than taking antibiotics. Never tested for stabalizers or anything. I was fine. If you're bleeding and it is not your period time then you may have other issues, in my opinion, and you should go see your Dr. or try some nice soothing natural oils like conconut oil or olive oil up there to sooth the tissues."
03/19/2014: Bernadette from Thomasville, Ga replies: "Help...I Am Confused! I am reading a book about H2O2...The Oxygen Prescription. He states and CAUTIONS against taking HP with juice, milk, or other flavorings because it will create oxidation, .....robbing the oxygen, which is what you are trying to get into the bloodstream. Adding HP to anything but oil or water will cause disputation and destruction of the HP. Cautions also against using water that contains IRON. That's why he states to use distilled water! No tap water that has fluoride and other chemicals. No iron tablets within an hour before. I was told milk or juices are O.K. by another book........now if you think about it, Veg. Juice has Iron and minerals in it from the Vegs. I do....know that this book was written back in 2007, so I am hoping new studies have been done and this information is outdated! Just don't know which information is correct?? Can someone get back to me ASAP! Thanks. Bernadette"
05/08/2014: Ct from California replies: "Hi Bernadette,
This video helped explain to why it's important to take FGHP on an empty stomach and why we need to for both safety and efficacy purposes. From what I have researched, it makes a lot of sense to take FGHP on an empty stomach and follow the pre/post eating and supplementation guidelines. It's kind of a pain but if we are gonna do this, we wanna do it right. www.youtube.com/watch?v=5S4JMcb6-n8"
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!
[YEA] 05/28/2013: Gypsy from Golden, Co replies: "This is true. My family has used H202 this way since I was a child. It was recommended by our family docter. It works like a charm, definately one of the first remedies I run to if my ears are popping and my tonsils are swelling. It is handy to have a fluffy handtowel that you can lay on then after the bubbeling subsides. It will itch and tickle like crazy. You can dump it out by placing your towel on the ear then tilting your head towards your shoulder. This is the best part. Then I clean the ear gently with a q tip or a soft cloth. Repeat the process on the other side. Also this is 3% regular H202 I am talking about, right off the shelf.
Long live Earth Clinic. This is the best site ever! Thank you to all the people who make it so."
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."
01/01/2014: Angie from Southaven, Ms: "I have been reading a lot about 35% food grade Hydrogen Peroxide (HP) being taken internally. After reading the proper protocol my concern is keeping to the "empty stomach" schedule. Either 1 hour before or 3 hours after you eat. We could manage the 1st dose in the morning on an empty stomach, but the 2nd and 3rd throughout the day would be tough on an "empty stomach" for we eat several small healthy meals and snacks per day.
After going to a local healthfood store yesterday I found out they were sold out of the 35% food grade HP. They said they can't keep it in. But they showed me a 12% food grade and said many were using it.
On the back of the bottle, it showed how to properly take it (proper dosage, using distilled water, etc) but it said nothing about being on an empty stomach. In fact, it said to drink the 32oz daily mixed dosage of distilled water with 1/4 tsp HP (increasing HP dosage each week) and to drink 4 oz every hour. In doing this, there is no way to be on an empty stomach. You can also take 8 oz four times a day, drinking the full 32oz per day).
So my question is, is it not as much of an issue of being on an empty stomach if it's the 12% food grade vs. the 35%? The 12% would be more "doable for us but I want to make sure it's not as much of an issue if you're not on an empty stomach.
And......... do you feel you can still reap the health benefits of oxygenizing your body with the 12% as the 35% food grade, it would just lake longer due to it being not as potent?
There's a lot of literature out there about HP therapy but there are some areas that need a bit more clarity.
We truly want to start HP therapy but we want to do it safely and also as conveniently as we can. We have to realistic about being able to stick to the schedule.
Thank you for any help you can give us."
01/04/2014: Cygnusx1 from New York: "Hi, first time poster, longtime lurker/fan of this site. I purchased a 3% solution of food grade H2O2 from my local health food store with the intention of starting a regimen. My question stems from some nervousness I've been having from reading posts on here.
I suffer from chronic shingles and my intention with the regimen is to limit the outbreaks as well as improve my overall health. I'm up in the air as to how I want to use the H2O2. Should I inhale, bathe, drink, or all of the above?
I am also concerned about any interactions that may happen when combined with drinking ACV and taking probiotic pills. I know it's a very vague/general question, but any info will be greatly appreciated. Thank you."

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

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!"

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

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."

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."

01/25/2010: 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."

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."

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."

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."

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."

Full of drugs from my doctor, but nothing working. I've tried just about every "remedy" known to mankind, but they've all failed. I recently found out about Hydrogen Peroxide, and started taking it mixed in Distilled Water. Unfortunately, as I took stronger doses, I started to get nauseous, so I had to stop taking it. I've just been looking at this site, and came across a message from Bill (1/12/2009), who recommends taking HP mixed in Apple Cider Vinegar. I'll start taking it immediately, and I'll report back as soon as possible. Here's hoping this one works."
08/20/2010: Tonib from Billings, Mt replies: "Hello Eddie from Port Erin... If you become nauseous from increasing the H202, all you need to do is cut the quantity back. It is best to continue taking it, just cut back the amount."
11/11/2010: Eddie from Port Erin, Isle Of Man (uk) replies: "I've tried Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide diluted in Apple Cider Vinegar, but find the ACV makes me too nauseous, so I've had to cut right back on it. I'm still searching for a way to take FGHP that will not make me sick. Does anyone know if it would be OK to take HP diluted in Aloe Vera?"
11/15/2010: Asa from Portland, Oregon, Us replies: "This is for Emillie from the phillipines and everyone else. I have heard that hemp oil from cannabis plants can be used topically and internally to cure a number of ailments including cancer. "Run from the cure a Rick Simpson story" is a documentary by Rick Simpson who claims to have cured his own skin cancer as well as a number of cancers and disorders with hemp oil. I came across it doing research for my fathers leukemia... Very interesting stuff. I encourage anyone to do there own research on this one, knowledge is power. Good luck and many blessings!"
11/16/2010: Sergey from World replies: "Earthclinic: could we have a "Movie" section in EC where people can recommend documentary movies on alternative treatment views for things like AIDS, Diabetes, Cancer, etc? I can already think of several, most available for free online. If a picture is worth a thousand words, a movie is worth a billion! This would set off a revolution and help empower people on their decisions. These documentaries are the best way to be introduced to views not being told to patients by the medical establishment, and are often the starting point on a lot of further research by patients."
11/16/2010: Francisca from Michelbach-le-bas, Alsace, France replies: "That is a good idea..... Or DVD's.... There are a few on Amazon I would like to buy, about cancer for example but they can often only be viewed in the US and unfortunately our DVD player only plays European ones. Sometimes they don't exist as books but if they are online then us in Europe can watch as well!"
EC: Hi Francisca and Sergey,
We will soon be launching a newly revamped book review section and can include documentary movie reviews there as well!

Taking HP with Aloe is fine."
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. I don't think it is illegal I just think the zones are there just to annoy us and keep us frustrated!!!! Cheers Lily."
01/02/2012: Martin from Banbridge, Ireland replies: "To the woman Emilie from the philippines who has breast cancer and doesn't want to get destroyed by the medical industry, try black salve to help draw the growth out of your breast. I heard a lot of good things about it for all types of cancer... black salve comes from the plant called bloodroot... 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... To all those medical doctors who support these methods hang your heads in shame!!!!!"
06/06/2012: Abraham from Tulsa, Oklahoma replies: "What I do is combine dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO), peroxide, baking soda, and apple cider with water in a bowl in large amounts ( each one liter). dont drink it because it BOILS literally lets off steam and is hot as F.
It KILLS acne and restores your skin color to what it was before your skin was sunburned. After only a couple uses your scars go away permanently. Wait till it cools down though."
07/16/2012: Ustabearepug from Tulsa, Ok replies: "First thing you want to do is buy you some PH strips which measure the acidity in your body, you want it drk blue which is alkaline, the more yellow means you are acidic, not good, ACV is acidic so I wonder why it is said to be good for us as we want our body alkaline, soda is highly alkaline, english walnuts are most alkaline, beer is acidic so I like no more than two Miller lights in the evening which is acidic. 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."
11/06/2012: Helpyourself from Houston, Texas replies: "Hey, Mike - I think you're fine. Take a break, resume later in small doses. My son got a big dose once and refused to take it again. I have since got him to use it ( FGHP) and he's fine with it. I just make the dose now. Good Luck!"
12/29/2013: Legna from Secret Location replies: "TO Bill from Los Angeles, California, Hi, I have some questions:
1) when do you drink your ACV-FGHP in relation to meals/supplements, basically how much time you leave between your dose of ACV-FGHP and food/supplements? ---he general guideline is: 1- 2 hours before any food/supplement(especially vitamin C and iron) OR 3 hours after any food/supplement(esp. vitamin C and iron)?
2) how much is ''1 capfull of ACV'' in mililiters or oz's?
3) in how much water you mix the ACV and FGHP?
4) for how many days/weeks/months you stayed at 25 drops FGHP, 2- 3 times per day?
5) did you increase your ACV dose and the amount of water while increasing your FGHP drops?
6) usually how many times per day you took your ACV-FGHP dose? 2 or 3 times per day?(i ask this because my daily program allows me to take it twice only, somehow I need to make space during the day to take a 3rd dose if its neccesary a 3rd dose)
7) how are you these days? any updates?
8) do you take any other supplements, if yes which brand do you use? what does your diet look like?
9) which brand of FGHP do you use?
10) how can I contact you? facebook, email?
06/05/2014: Grannyjo from Usa replies: "To Emilie from Quezon City, Philippines. Hello Emilie, I'm sorry to hear about the cancer, I hope you are better. God healed my daughter of breast cancer over 16 years ago after taking Essiac, surgery, minimal chemo, and prayer. Sometimes all the doctors can do and all we can do is not enough, but we can Pray and trust God to heal us, and if we ask sincerely in Jesus name, I believe He will do it.
One of the best ways I know to prevent and fight cancer (and other diseases) is to keep your blood PH alkaline, instead of acidic. Disease hardly grows in alkaline blood.
I used baking soda (in water) for this until I learned that baking soda contains aluminum. We don't need heavy metals in our body, so I stopped the soda & started drinking Apple cider vinegar, (or fresh lemon juice, which are both alkaline) in water instead.
I suggest using at least 2 or 3 fresh lemons daily, (or equivalent ACV), squeezed in water with maybe a little stevia (absolutely no sugar, as cancer feeds on sugar)
About Hydrogen peroxide, I have used the 35% food grade (Diluted) HP in the nebulizer for colds etc. and on infected wounds with success but I have not taken it internally, however I believe I cured a skin cancer with Hydrogen peroxide.
For about 5 years A coal black spot had grown on my hand, to about the size of my thumbnail. I began to worry and prayed. I believe God told me it was cancer and that I should put undiluted 35% hydrogen peroxide on it. I did, very carefully keeping the HP on the growth. A bit got of the skin around the growth & turned white, but no problem. The white color soon went away.
The black growth puffed up like a water blister, which I left untouched for a couple days until the blister went down. I then applied the hydrogen peroxide a second time. and let the blister go down again, at which time I noticed the edges of the black growth had begun to curl up something like the edges of a crispy fried egg.
I very carefully started gently pulling the edges of the growth loose, prepared to stop if I saw any bleeding. There was no bleeding. I pulled every bit the growth off easily with no pain or bleeding, leaving only brand new baby pink skin beneath. My normal skin color soon returned. That was at least 5 or 6 years ago and the growth has never returned. GrannyJo."
06/09/2014: Grannyjo from Usa replies: "To Fxgirl,
In answer to your question, could you use mineral water instead of distilled water.
I would opt for the distilled water just to be on the safe side.
I am not a chemist or scientist, but I know borax, baking soda and bentonite clay are Ionic, meaning they carry negative (electrical) charged atoms so small they can easily travel into your blood stream, through the walls of your stomach.
Whereas Apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, (and probably Hydrogen Peroxide) have positively electrical charged atoms.
If you combine a negative and positively charged substances together they try to neutralize each other.
Like a magnet, the negative ions (or atoms) draw the positive atoms. If you mix vinegar and baking soda together you get a chemical reaction, (the bubbling action), and when the bubbling stops, the chemical structure has changed. An acid and a base cancel each other out.
We don't really know what minerals or possibly metals may be in the mineral water or how they may react with what we are adding to it; Borax, HP or ACV.
I don't know if this has helped any but Maybe someone out there will clarify it better. - GrannyJo."
[YEA] 11/24/2010: Sean from Boise, Id: "Hello, I've been drinking H202 for about 5 months. I am a 42 yr old male in good health except I've injured my low back over the years and several other minor injuries. I had been taking cyclobenzaprene regularly over the past 2 years(mainly for muscle spasms)and medical dose Naproxen regularly, prescribed by my VA Dr. (the VA loves to give out pain pills and are not focused on cures. Whatever costs less. I'm very thankful though that I have this medical resource. )
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 don't do it daily even and Wow-I don't have to take the pills anymore. The achiness and early arthritic soreness in my body that I've felt for a number of years is Gone. No more muscle spasms either. Hallelujah"Replies

12/22/2010: Ender from Robertsdale , Al replies: "Distilled water is poisonous. Use filtered water instead. You only need water without Cl."
12/23/2010: Jay from Toronto, Ont, Canada replies: "To Ender from Robertsdale , Al. Why would you say that distilled water is poisonous? This is false. 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. Jay"
12/24/2010: Rob from Manhattan, Ny replies: "Jay, what kind of distiller would you recommend? or do you use? I trust Dr. Weil's view that distilled water is fine.. (what he drinks) and that we get most of our minerals from
The foods we eat. Also, one can always add minerals to the distilled water if they are concerned."

Distilled water is just that, distilled water. I buy mine from the garage next door, in the 5 liter format. They use it for batteries. It's distilled water. Don't get too hung up worrying about the water issue. I've used distilled water with no problems whatsoever.
You could even use the water from a dehumidifier if you wanted.

10/29/2011: Cosmo from Boston, Ma, Usa replies: "To : Valetta, Malta - you stated: "You could even use the water from a dehumidifier if you wanted."
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 -
03/21/2012: Tom from Auckland, New Zealand replies: "That's awesome Sean! I love it when people can cure themselves with such simple measures. I am struggling a little bit with arthritis at the moment and am getting a lot of muscle spasms. From what I've read so far I'm thinking it is a lack of magnesium that causes the spasms. Although I'm not so sure now. Was ACV and H202 the only treatment you took?
I'm going to start on this h202 today and will report back what I find."
