Drug Store Peroxide
[QUESTION] 08/13/2010: Lisaj from Stamford, Ct, Usa: "I've been reading the posts and Bill Munroe's accounts with H202. I went to the drugstore - on the bottle it said 3% stabalized and if swallow contact your local poison control. It says for external use only. I know alot of readers and Bill has been using this for inhaling but it kind of scared me off. I think I would rather try the 35% food grade and dilute it. The closest health food store doesn't carry it. I'm wondering if Whole Foods might. What do you all think? That 3% would have been ok or does anyone know off hand if Whole Foods carries it. This site is fantastic. I'd like to thank everyone who posts for their helpful comments. Thanks, Lisa"Replies
08/14/2010: Bessie from Calgary, Alberta, Canada replies: "Hi Lisa - Try asking your health food store to order 35% food-grade hydrogen peroxide for you. Some customer-oriented stores are more than willing to do that because people use it for sprouting, as well as for other purposes. Also, stores usually do not keep 35% food-grade HP on the shelves due to safety regulations (you don't want kids opening up a bottle and spilling it on themselves) so they keep it in the storeroom. You just have to ask them to retrieve it for you. The one I go to in Calgary keeps it in the back room. Good luck!"
08/16/2010: Ahlia86 from Rotorua, Bay Of Plenty, New Zealand replies: "Lisa - 35% food grade must be diluted to 3% with water. Check out Teds Earth Clinic articles on Hydrogen Peroxide
[QUESTION] 02/19/2010: Nancy from Surprise, Az: "What is meant by stabilizers and contaminates in the drugstore type of Hydrogen Peroxide, and what harm can it cause if it's ingested? I've read on this site that there are people who are using the drugstore variety and no mention of any health issues with this type of peroxide.
I'm interested in trying peroxide therapy but not sure which to use. I'm a little fearful of the food grade type because of it's potency and I found a site where you can purchase it, but they have to send it haz mat. The drugstore type sounds easier and you can buy it directly from the store, but the stabilizers and contaminates have me concerned.
If you add the store peroxide to a glass of water, can the water be from the tap, or should it be distilled and how much peroxide to how much water? Please help with questions. Thank you."
02/24/2010: Thankgod4hp from Miami, Florida replies: "Hi Nancy, you can look on the back of the label for the 3% hydrogen peroxide and it will state, "Active ingredient"......."hydrogen peroxide 3%". If it says (stabilized) then it has stabilizers, if not then its ok."
02/26/2010: Nancy from Surprise, Az replies: "Thank you for your response. Also, can you tell me what harmful effects these stabilizers have and what they will do to you if ingested or inhaled? Thanks again."
06/30/2011: Erica from Sterling, Va, Usa replies: "Hi Nancy, someone with scientific knowledge replied to an inquiry further up that you should NEVER mix H2O2 food grade with tap water. Use only distilled water to prevent an ugly surprise."
07/01/2011: Francisca from Michelbach-le-bas, Alsace, France replies: "Are you sure that you can't mix the hydrogen peroxide with normal water? I do it for my water pik when I clean my teeth.... It says so in a book I read!"
Ear and Sinus Issues
04/07/2010: Ger from Dublin, Ireland: "hi all,

[YEA] 07/23/2009: Whitey from Warsaw, MO: "I have had itchy ears for a few months after having an ear infection. I used a very small amount of hydrogen peroxide on a q-tip. This has definitely worked. Although I would not recommend pouring it in your ear during a ear ache as I did this and ended up with a very painful infection."
[YEA] 06/23/2009: Ken from Atlanta, Ga.: "Started on 35% food grade 10 days ago. Am using 12 drops 3 times daily as recommended by Cavanaugh. I have been in the heating and air business for 30 years and have suffered from chronic sinus and ear infections due to the dust and molds that I encounter at work. I have had two sinus surgeries over the years that have done nothing to help me. The doctors give antibiotics that never seem to clear the infections all the way and the infections always return. I am happy to say that my ears and sinuses are responding to this treatment. I really don't know what "normal" sinuses feel like. Can't believe that this has been here all along and I have suffered all these years due to the medical communities bias. Thanks for this forum. Ken from Atlanta"Replies
08/31/2009: April from Jupiter, Fl replies: "You may have allergic fungal sinusitis, which would explain why the antibiotics are ineffective."
09/16/2011: Derek from Mill Creek, Washington replies: "My friend john had a massive ear wax build up problem fall of 2009. He was applying 3% peroxide for sometimes hours a day and the problem stabilized for awhile. However, now, he frequently gets a feeling that his head is boiling. When he stays in the shower for more than a minitue or two, he gets very dizzy and almost acts drunk. He has consulted a few doctors for a remedy and has had no luck. I'm afraid he might get in a car accident or worse if this continues and am asking anybody who can help to contact me at derekrfay(at)yahoo.com. Thank you!"
09/16/2011: Lily from Brisbane, Queensland, Australia replies: "Hello Derek, are you sure your friend doesn't have a middle ear infection?"
03/06/2012: Elena from Apex, Nc replies: "I realize this is an old post but did your friend ever figure out what was going on with him because the same is happening to me now."
[YEA] 12/20/2008: Max from San Jose, Costa Rica: "I have faced chronic allergic rinitis since more than 50 years now. Nothing worked (including 3 operations and plenty money wasted on all kind of especialized doctors, until I gave up and learned to live with the problem. In yr site I found out abt H2O2. Curious enough decided to try my own drugstore formula reduced at 1% (2:1) in clear water. I started spraying twice every nostril, four times a day. At day #5 I started to show a mix o blood and yellowish mucus from my nose at morning time only (once). Quite an amount every day I must add. I was at first scared, yet decided to continue. It was the same cleaning routine (expelling out)for 7 days straight, then my nose came up with clean, clear mucus. No more yellowish or bloody outputs. I infer I have cleaned my sinuses completely from a fungus or bacteria that have been infecting me for decades. I have kept doing the spraying, but in leeseer frequency. I do carry my sprayer with me all day now and I think I will not stop from using it from here on. I believe it will keep me from getting sick again, no more flu, virus, rinitis, etc. I wake up now breathing freely, something I never thought possible. My snoring have been reduced or eliminated, and the only mucus I have know is clear like water. Still must keep cleaning my nostrils several times a day, but not as before and its clear. I thing if doctors are keeping this simple solution from us, they are all crooks. And I know how much money I have expent on all kind of expensive treatments, Xrays, poisons, etc. If I am doing something that may harm me, please let me know, but so far so good. I will keep going.
PS/ You may edit my poor English if you want to publish my experience.

[WARNING!] 09/17/2009: Max from San Jose, Costa Rica replies: "On August last year 08/2008, I comment on how I used H2O2 to treat my synus problem. I would like to add a WARNING: applying the nostril spray continuously came eventually (after many weeks) to be very irritant and my mocus fluids increased, yet still clear. So I have discontinued the nasal spray that way. At least the spray got rid of my sinus infection at the beggining of the treatment, I am sure. Therefore I will recommend the nasal spray as I did only to clean yr sinus, one time, using the spray mix for only 2 to 4 weeks and stop. Now, I am taking several drops of Food Grade peroxide in fresh coconut water (abt 8 oz in a nut) daily instead, as a preventive way to help my inmune system against any potential illness. You never know!
03/16/2011: Jed from Los Angeles, Ca, Usa replies: "Max, I was just thinking of adding food grade h202 with coconut water when I read your post. Thank you. Pura Vida, Jed"
[YEA] 04/18/2008: Sarah from Battle Creek, Michigan: "My 14 month old son has constantly been sick and had ear infections. We have keep going to the doctor and they just kept putting him on antibiotics. It turns out that the infection never healed causing the area behind his ear to become swollen. We went to the emergency room and they just gave him another round of antibiotics. Three days later went went back into his ped and they put him on steriods for the swelling because they said it was lymph nodes. Two weeks later his ear was still swollen, red and very tender to the touch. The poor baby was just miserable so we made another appointment to go back to the ped. Since we use H2O2 for cleaning out infections and getting rid of ear wax, I put some in his ear that night, let it sit for 5 minutes and then drained it. The next morning the swelling was down by half but it was still noticably swollen. We had is ped appointment that day so we went and they referred us to a ENT and hearing Specialist. As soon as that doctor walked in the room he said he was going to have to schedule my son for surgery to put tubes in his ear. what he has is mastoiditis, an infection of the bone behind the ear. After talking for a while I told the doctor that the ear was actually getting better (I left out the H2O2 part). He gave me the option to do another round of antibiotics and see what happens but if it got worse then I had to bring him in for surgery. Of course, I opted for the antibiotics. I did a total of 5 treatments of H2O2 in his ear. I did it right before bed and when he woke up in the morning after doing a treatment his ear was less and less tender and swollen. This morning when he woke up his ear was completely back to normal. I can't believe it! My baby is happy and doesn't need tubes put into his ears anymore. Thank you God for giving us H2O2."
[YEA] 04/07/2008: Sarah from Baltimore. MD, USA: "My husband had been struggling with a sinus infection, he started taking 5 drops of hydrogen peroxide in a glass of water a couple times a day. The second day we doubled the dose and a few minutes later a ball of disgustingly yellow and green mucus came out flying from his mouth... I mean flying. It was pretty impressive. The nest of the infection was gone. Thanks HP!"
[YEA] 03/13/2007: Cat from Portsmouth, VA: "Hydrogen Peroxide and Sinus Infection: I mixed equal parts of Hydrogen peroxide and water and used a dropper in my nose... it burned like crazy and bubbled all sorts of stuff out... after a few minutes I felt so good and could breath!"
[YEA] 01/29/2007: Stan from Tijuana, Mexico: "I used to have dripping sinus that incapacitated me because of making me sick every year. Then I started to use food grade hydrogen peroxide and within days i quit having the usual symptoms and have been pretty much free of this plague for 20 years. My friends have had the same experince..I use about 6 to 8 drops in large glass of water."
[YEA] 10/09/2006: Ryan from Stockton, CW: "I was recently very sick with a bad cough and phlegm in my chest area, and over night i had somehow gained an ear infection in both ears. It hurt more in my right ear than my left. I refused to try antibiotics. I put peroxide in one ear and let it stay in my ear for about 5 minutes. Then i switched, and put it in my other ear. I did this three times within 4 hours apart from each other. In the morning my ear ache was gone."
[YEA] 10/04/2006: Laura from New Baltimore, MI: "Squirting warm Hydrogen Peroxide in my ears keep them clear and free of infection. i was trying 4 different antibiotics and 2 rounds of steroids to clear a bad ear infection because i quit using hp because of bad advise from husband, when i gave up hope, (nothing was working) i went back to it, doctors had no problem with it and low and behold, CLEAR EARS!"
[YEA] 09/21/2006: Daniel from Spokane, WA: "First, thank you for the great website--I've been searching for this type of confirmation for several days now. My story is that I use earplugs when I sleep, as I awake easily. About a week ago, I had taken a shower right before bed and dried ears with a towel (no q-tip). The earplug didn't seem to go in as usual (perhaps the wrong angle). The day after, about mid-day, I noticed that my ear was hurting. Two days later I was in a full-blown ear infection. I stopped working a few months ago to do some studies, as such, no money to go to the doctor. I prayed and the Lord said to read a book about hydrogen peroxide that was sitting on my shelf and decided that it wouldn't hurt. So, I put one cap of H2O2 into my ear and let it sit for about 5 minutes. I couldn't hear anything happening, at first. Then the bubbling started. Rather cool. I kept doing this every two to three hours. By the end of the night, the pain (so strong that I really couldn't touch the ear without feeling like I was going to throw up) was 90% gone. After two treatments the following day, there is no longer ANY pain whatsoever. Praise the Lord! Now, I must say that I don't know for certain if my immune system had typed the virus/bacteria by this point, as I had been sick for a few days by the time I started... Regardless, the pain appeared to decrease with each treatment--I thought I was imagining it until the 4th treatment--I then KNEW that there was a difference. By the way, I should mention that I also dried my ear out with q-tips, and then used a warm blow dryer for about 10 minutes after each treatment. Perhaps I had come down with swimmer's ear from using the earplugs on wet ears--drying is important. Anyway, thank God for hydrogen peroxide and a cured ear infection. I am now using 3% in a humidifier, breathing it in for multiple 5 minute sessions throughout the day, and have seen a big difference in my energy levels--very cool. I might add that I have to inhale with my eyes closed...else the stuff irritates my eyes. Pretty cool stuff! :o) :o) :o)"Replies
04/24/2009: Joann from Hartford, AL replies: "Swimmers ear can be avoided by putting alcohol in each ear after being in the water. I have to do that after a shower. The hair dryer might harm the ear drum by making them to dry. Alcohol will cause the water to evaporate with it."
EC: Hi, Joann. We presume you mean rubbing alcohol?
[YEA] 03/29/2010: Daniel from Spokane, Wa replies: "Daniel from Spokane, Wa writes: "Just a simple update on my post from three years ago:
I have not had an ear infection or cold for three and a half years now. The H2O2 gets used in each ear twice a week, and I simply tissue and Q-tip my ears dry each time I shower. That's it! Hydrogen peroxide is the most effective and CHEAPEST supplement I've ever tried. Thanks again for this website--three years free! :) :) :)"
01/30/2012: Joann from Hartford, Al replies: "Well, it was good to see a post that I made a long time ago. Yes, I do mean rubbing alcohol. I'm going to using the PH for an ear infection that just doesn't seem to want to clear up. Good luck all. I'm glad to see the site is re-visited by others who have used it and they leave new feedback."
[YEA] 05/21/2006: Linda from Miramichi N.B. Canada: "I had a severe chest infection and plugged left ear. After 2 rounds of antibiotics I got better but was left with dizziness and deafness and a ticking noise in left ear. I had lost 50% hearing. That was 2 years ago. I started using h202 in both ears about 1 year ago and noticed right away it cured the ticking and in time no more dizziness. I noticed about 2 months ago. I can hear perfectly in both ears. I am a great beleiver in hydrogen peroxide.Also my husband and I don't get sick much anymore.Thanks for the great site. linda c. canada"
