Hydrogen Peroxide   36  1   

Posted by Noel G. (Riyadh, Saudi Arabia) on 08/18/2011

[YEA]  I suffered from halitosis for 20 years. It is intermittent due to my sinusitis and post nasal drips. Everytime I have symptoms like asthma and cough I usually consult our employee health department, luckily Im working in government hospital I can easily get those medicines. However post nasal drips and halitosis persisted despite of antibiotics, this makes me frustrated. I started to research hydrogen peroxide with silver colloidal silver we used in the hospital to disinfect ICUs frequently touch items. We use this solution due to Acinotobacter baumanni which is hard to kill with other disinfectant. Our disinfectant is made in Belgium called Bioxeco. Furthermore I read alot of aricles that one sources of halitosis is due to anearobic bateria and H202 prevents the growth of it.

I dilluted the stock solution of 5%H2O2 with colloidal silver to 3% by (6ml of H202 solution 4 ml of distilled water = 3%).

Procedure to clean mouth with solution.

1, Brush teeth with branded toothpaste. Dont rinse.

2. Wash the toothbrush with tap water.

3. Pour 10 ml of 3% H2O2 (any volume will do) in cup.

3. Wet the toothbrush with H202 and start brushing teeth, palate of mouth and tongue for several minutes.

4. Use the remaining solution for rinsing.

My halitosis is gone after the brushing. I checked by licking the back of my hand and smell it. I dont smell anything unlike before it smells bad.

I also begun inhaling 3% H202 with colloidal silver for post nasal drips and sinusitis for 10 days now but post nasal drips did not stop. Furthermore I started drinking ACV using the recommended dosage published in this site for 4 days now and hoping to get a positive result after 2 weeks or more. I will soon update my situation.

Finally, I am so thankful for this site. It helps me alot and the anecdotal research is worthful to consider. I believe that some of the remedies may or may not work for others, but for sure those individuals that doesnt exerperience changes may have underlying serious conditions that must be given attention. Such as one person form Bangladesh having white patches in toungue. He must perform various serological procedures that may confirm his conditions. Maybe he can do his research by surfing ( white are the underlying disease with white patches on tongue)

[YEA]  I had bad breath to the extent that it was already affecting my social life. After stumbling into your website, I read the Hydrogen Peroxide may work. I tried it with equal parts of 3% concentratiion and water and gargled for about two minutes. The bad breath disappeared immediately. I have intentionally not used it for ten days now and still I don't have bad breath even first thing in the morning. Thanks so much....

Can you please tell me where, did you buy hydrogen peroxide in dubai.. as m suffering from the same problem and would want to cure this issue. can you also tell me if its safe to use hydrogen peroxide..

[YEA]  I have got to thank every one of you who posted recommendations for the use of hydrogen peroxide as a mouthwash for bad breath. I have been off white sugar and white flour for 10 weeks now and the candida death caused my mouth to be infiltrated w/ bacteria and my breath was stomach wrenching. One wash w/ peroxide created such a foaming action from my throat all the way through to my teeth that I could not believe the die off of toxins... I'm talking like white golf balls of foam, scraped my tongue after, brushed and rinsed and may I say sweet breath ever since. Doing it again tonight!!!! Delighted. This site has been such a positive place for safe, and natural remedies and I for one am so very grateful. Such wise and intelligent people here. God Bless!!!

Did you use food grade? If so how much % of food grade peroxide to water? My daughter has bad breath since a baby and I wonder what is wrong. She is very clean with her teeth. She eats well. I want to help her. I ordered food grade and it is on the way. I will teach her how to use it for bad breath. Please expand in the way you dissolve it with water.

I have the same experience: I completely eliminated sugar, wheat, corn, dairy, and excess meat from my diet about a week ago, and my partner told me last night that my breath had been bad for 2 days now. I didn't know until reading this, (and several other sites that mentioned low carb diet breath, ) that it may be from candida dying. Even though that is a good thing, the smell of it is not! Does anyone know how long this side-effect will last? How long will the bad breath persist from such a change in diet? Thanks

[YEA]  Oh, my god. This site is amazing. I stumbled onto Earth Clinic last week in my desperate search for a yeast infection cure. I'm trying many of the suggestions and am delighted by the pooled knowledge. This morning I woke up and almost passed out from the horrible breath that was coming from me - like something had died inside of me and then I'd ingested moth balls. Disgusting. I came here and then tried the diluted HO remedy. Had to do it three times to really see it working. The 3rd time I held it in my mouth for several minutes. I could feel it bubbling, and when I spit, there was a huge amount of bubbles in the sink. I tested my breath on my fiancĂ©, and he said, "I don't know. It works so well I'm not sure I believe it. " Hah! Believe it, babe. I've been chewing gum with aspartame for years because of my fear of bad breath (I teach privately, one-on-one, and have been terrified of my breath). Now I can stop chewing that cancer-causing crap and stop wasting money on expensive "all natural" and ineffective products. Thank you, everyone!

[YEA]  Bad breath: the hydrogen peroxide really works. I always felt like the smell was coming from deep down in my stomach especially because I have very clean white teeth and gums. Almost instantly the smell went away just by gargling the peroxide. Afterwards I tried to isolate whether it was the peroxide or some other changes I have made and came to the conclusion that it is definitely the mouthwash. The only thing is that I do not dilute it in water.

[NAY]  hi, i have great oral hygiene, and suffering from halitosis for years. i just went to a breath clinic, nothing seems to work... HP does not work neither. Since I brush, scrape my tongue, mouthwash, floss 3x at least a day, I always have a clean feeling in my mouth, but as I hear from friends my breath smells like fart :((( Im devastated and hopeless that even one of the best halitosis doctor could not help... any ideas? thanks a lot.

How are your bowel habits? Have you tried de-toxifying?

I had a similar problem in the past. I use ACV and Baking Soda and currently added liver de-tox supplements. I also stopped using milk products especially in my coffee. Good luck to you and don't stop looking for a cure.

I think you should concentrate on treating your gut as apposed to your mouth. Try digestive enzymes and ACV. As well I know for a fact that tonsil stones can smell that bad. if you press on the area around the tonsil and a white compound comes out you are dealing with tonsil stones. Hope this helps

Just a suggestion: try mixing a couple of tablespoons of baking soda in a glass of water and drinking it down! Don't gargle, just drink it. I had chronic bb for 20 years and was SO desperate. 3 dentists said it wasn't my teeth, 2 periodontists said it wasn't my gums, one of them said he believed it was a gastric problem.

Then saw 3 Gastroenterologists and had upper gi and endoscopies with no resolution. Tried the baking soda and as soon as I woke up the next morning, I could tell the smell was gone, which has since been confirmed by a coworker and my husband kissed me the other day like he hasn't in years!

[YEA]  I knew I had halitosis for so many years and God knows how much I have suffered because of this humiliating disease. I lost the girl I loved so much. I couldn't talk in front of people. I could sense based on people's reaction whenever I talk that my breath stinks as far as 10 feet away. I could hardly breath whenever I ride in a car with someone else because the malodor is there even if I don't talk (proof of my chronic condition - the odor comes not only from the mouth but from the nostril also). My job as an executive secretary involves a lot of talking to people, especially my bosses. Because of my stinking breath, I couldnt perform my job well, and the thought resigning has been hanging 'round my mind. I thought it's better to hide in the mountains where I can breath freely than to stay in the city where I feel I had no freedom to breathe.

I tried all kinds of toothpaste, mints, gums, mouthwashes, lemons, ginger, tea, water therapy, probiotics, dentist, EENT doctor, friends whom I knew had halitosis in the past, but nothing and no one was able to help. But thanks be to GOD, He led me to this site!!! Hydrogen Peroxide is His answer to my prayer for healing.

Knowing the severity of my condition, I started using HP 6% instead of 3% (1 tablespoon HP diluted with 5 tablespoon of water). My first time use was in the evening of April 24, 2009. I sensed how effective it was because the following morning, the foul odor is gone like magic! I intend to continue using it twice a day for a month, then will see if I can stop completely afterwards.

I can't thank you enough for this site. God has given me new life thru you. Thank YOU!! Thank GOD!!!

Answer to Joanne from Jakarta "HOW TO DILUTE 20% PEROXIDE FOR MOUTH WASH?"

You can dilute it to make a 1.5% solution. 1 vol of H2O2 @ 20% 12 vol of Distilled water will make a solution at about 1.5% i.e. 20%/13.

Formula for ratio of concentrated H2O2 to distilled water to produce a new concentration:

ratio = (OldConc/NewConc) -1

Ex: 20% -->10% requires 1 vol of H2O2 to 1 vol of Distilled water ( 20%/10%) -1 = 2 -1 = 1..

Ex 35% --> 3% requires 1 vol of H2O2 to 11 vol of Distilled water (35% / 3%) -1 = 12-1 = 11.

[SIDE EFFECTS]  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)

[YEA]   I use hydrogen peroxide to rinse my mouth out after brushing and flossing in the morning....but I absolutely dilute it. About 1/2 & 1/2 should be fine. Not sure what to tell you about the hairy tongue though...sounds like it must be awful though. I'm sorry you had to experience that.

I suffered from a "hairy tongue" or a white coated tongue for many months. I did not know what caused the problem, and tried every oral hygiene method I could think of to remedy it, but to no avail. Everyone to include the doctors said it was because I had a dirty mouth. I have always prided myself on taking care of my dental needs so I knew a dirty mouth was not the problem. To make a long story short, through my persistent, I finally found a doctor who diagnosed the problem. The hairy tongue was caused by excessive yeast in my body. Just as excessive yeast can show up as a vaginal yeast infection, it can also show up as a hairy or white coated tongue in the mouth. The doctor prescribed the proper antibiotics and within days the problem disappeared.

Hyrdrogen peroxide is found in pharmacies but you gotta make sure it's very distilled when mixed with water, cause H2O2 is very powerful and damaging, so first make sure it's at a safe concentration before consuming, as for the exact concentrations I wouldn't be the right person to ask as I don't use it- previous posts give exact concentration details, hope it works out!

I used to have a somewhat furry tongue(white) I used to smoke for years and drank a lot of beer. What I did was I went out and bought some extra virgin coconut oil, originally to make the swelling in my tonsils go down. I brushed my teeth first and then put a big glob of oil in my mouth. I tilted my head back and let it sink to the back of my throat. I held it there and gargled it for about 20 minutes. When I spit it out, my tongue was immediately wayyy pinker. I think I'm allergic to the oil though, because I ate a few tbsp of it and broke out in minor hives on my finger and lips. But it really cured my white tongue. I stopped using it though because of the hives and now to keep my tongue pink, I dip my toothbrush in mouthwash, brush my tongue, and use a tongue scraper to scrape it all off gently. My tongue has improved 90% in one week.

[YEA]  I have been suffering from bad breath for a few years now and had tried various different remedies, some worked, but mainly for a very short space of time, the bad breath always returning. I tried the HP and am very pleased to say my bad breath has COMPLETELY cleared up! I used 2 parts HP to 5 parts water of 3%, 10vol type (that is what is says on the bottle!). I gargle and rinse morning and night, for as long as I can stand, usually max 30 secs per mouthful, then spit out. I then rinse my mouth with salt water. I also wait the 15 mins before I drink or eat anything.

With other remedies and mouthwashes, they simply mask the problem, but with HP because it eliminates the actual bacteria, you then eliminate the bad breath. A big THANK you to this site for helping me in this way, I feel so much better all round. I would definately urge ANYONE with bad breath problems to give this a go.

I am encouraged by the information on this site as I have suffered from CHRONIC bad breath for over 10 years now. I am almost afraid to put too much hope into the hydrogen peroxide remedy as everything else I have tried has ultimately failed over time. I have had some success with commercial remedies, however, this is always short lived - it is as though my mouth becomes accustomed to the active ingredients and the effectiveness wears off. I would be interested in hearing if people with CHRONIC bad breath have had long term success using hydrogen peroxide. Many thanks!

Hi all... I've had severe halitosis for over 24 years, it's such a crippling and alienating condition to suffer from, like everyone with this ailment, I've suffered my fair share of humiliation and embarrassment, and because of it I've tried effortlessly to find a cure by seeking answers from many 7 dentists, 4 ENTs, 3 Gastroenterologists and over 20 GPs and the list goes on and none were able to help me or even pinpoint the cause of it, they were all puzzled and basically gave up! Tried all the mouthwashes and expensive treatments out there, went on various diets and detoxes, tried endless antibiotics but with no avail!

I tried Hydrogen Peroxide and ACV 3 years ago when I stumbled on this website and guess what? It actually worked! But only temporarily!! The bad breath didn't completely diminish but it improved by probably 90% so at that time I was probably the happiest person on earth because I truly believed that I was finally being cured and that in few more days or weeks the bb will completely disappear! But to my disappointed the bb never really disappeared but instead it came back and neither HP nor ACV worked on me again. It's like the bacteria in my mouth or gut - or wherever it's hiding - had become immune to it. So I was so disappointed and my hopes and dreams were shattered once again!

What I want to know from all of the people who have tried HP and ACV and had positive results with it, whether their cure was short term or they were actually completely cured and bb never returned?

I would also appreciate any suggestions or other cures that might help me with my condition as it's ruining my life.

I know a lady that was complaining about really bad breath. She found out that she had the Helicobacter Pylori bacteria in her stomach. Once she got read of it, the bad breath dissapeared. Look into Manuka honey, Grapefruit Seed extract, garlic. Clean you blood with stinging nettle tee.

3 steps to help conquer the battle of the breath, and each solves a contributing factor, so try them separately for 1-2 weeks at a time, or all together, whichever you prefer.

1. Add baking soda to your toothbrush and oral rinse. It neutralizes acid like no tomorrow. Tastes blech, works great. Avoid alcohol mouthwashes.

2. Consume yogurt daily, or a similar dose of probiotic drink or capsules - yogurt is best. Look for at least 4 billion probiotic per serving.

3. Scrape your tongue with a spoon daily.

Also, Check your pH for acidosis. When your pH is in balance, your GI tract and breath will be also. And make sure you are getting enough water.

Desperation and embarrassment let me to searching. I don't know where my father got his information from but for years now I have heard him talking about peroxide as an effective rinse for bad breath. I really did not pay much attention to him even though I'm a nurse and I use peroxide all the time as antibacterial.

This afternoon I was sitting and talking to a few colleagues and the one I was closer to started saying "what is that smell, it smells like a dead rat in here". Having had bad breath for years I immidiately got suspicious. It's like when people sitting next to you all of sudden start fidgeting and looking around and you know next out comes the gum they offer you. Anyone with bad breath history know what I'm talking about. So I looked in her direction and continued talking and she repeated the same thing. Anyway I finshes my talking a little sooner than I wanted to and left together with one other colleague. I went back in and noticed one turned her head away when she saw me and the same colleague was just finishing the same humiliating sentence that she had said before.

I tried to convince myself to give her permission to make me feel bad but she won. I was devastated. I then decided to start looking into peroxide as a mouthwash and I stumbled accross this site.

I have used several different mouthwashes over the years Some were somewhat effective. I never really kept using them for a long time for I'm afraid that long term use of them may cause cancer. This morning, several hours before my humiliation, I used Tom of Maines because it claims to be natural. I have no choice now but to use peroxide and I will definitely do try it and I hope my halitosis and my days of bad humiliation are OVER.

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO CONTRIBUTED TO THIS SITE EITHER BY SHARING THEIR STORIES OR BY PROVIDING SOME KIND OF HELP!

So sorry you experienced that rejection but happy you have found the earth clinic family. If we say something thoughtless or stupid at times. Please forgive us . My worst breath experience was during a time my dentist put me in a situation where I had to keep returning trying to get them to do the right thing. They didn't, so I had to get a mediator. Well that stress made my normally lovely breath, turn horrible. I was shocked my breath was so awful. I use coconut oil, pull it through my mouth for five minutes in the morning. At bedtime I eat a charcoal tablet to clean up my gut. Hope you find your sweet breath again. Forgive them for they know not what they do. What the enemy means to harm us, is worked out for our good.

It is my opinion that bad breath comes from the stomach. Be sure you are balancing your meals with many veggies and fruits, less starch. Consider reading Candida: Killing Me Sweetly. It's helped my husband.

[YEA]  I use over the counter 3% hydrogen peroxide as a mouthwash, but have always disliked the aftertaste. I purchased a bottle of peppermint oil from the baking section of my local market, and put one tablespoon in an eight ounce bottle of 3% hydrogen peroxide. Mouth feels very clean (and now minty fresh, too!) Others may like to add their favorite flavors, increasing or decreasing the measurement according to taste. Make sure to GENTLY shake your bottle before opening to keep peppermint oil evenly distributed, and keep your mouthwash in an opaque bottle (I use the same brown bottle purchased at the dollar store). Refrigerate if your bathroom is very warm, and keep bottle out of direct sunlight.

[YEA]  Hi, just wanted to share with you my cure for an infected gum -- hydrogen peroxide. Also wanted to respond to Subashini from Kuwait, because I may have an answer for her about the bad breath and oil pulling.

My story (I'll try to be brief)... got a piece of food stuck in the gum behind one of my front teeth. No matter what I did -- floss, oil pull, swish peroxide -- it didn't come out. I then went to a new dentist last week to have my teeth cleaned and the stuck particle removed. Lucky me -- the hygenist was just filling in for the day and during the teeth cleaning part, said she saw something dislodge but then "lost sight of it". Okay, fine, I thought. That night I awoke in the middle of the night with terrible bad breath. It was so bad it actually woke me up. Yes, I do have sensitive smell!! When I looked at the right front tooth the next day, I noticed that the gum was severely swollen, from the tooth to the roof of the mouth. The bad breath also persisted. I started my holistic regime of oil pulling, then later swishing with hydrogen peroxide. The oil pulling, like Subashini said, made my breath worse. YUCK! I tried swishing with sea salt. No luck. Finally I had the idea a couple of days ago to soak a cotton ball with hydrogen peroxide and then hold it (tightly) to the swollen gum for 10 minutes. I also pinched another h202 soaked cotton ball to the back side of the tooth where the piece of food had initially lodged. Interestingly, it didn't hurt, but certain areas of the gum turned white. 10 minutes later the white had disappeared. Glad to say that my bad breath smell immediately disappeared and has not returned. My gum is looking a little better. A couple more days of this (soaked h202 2x a day) and I think I will be back to 100%. I highly suggest this technique if you have a tooth abcess or swollen gums from an infection. It is the best way for hydrogen to penetrate, otherwise it just turns to foam if you swish it around in your mouth.

So Subashini, I think your issue may be an infection somewhere in your gums that the oil pulling is bringing to the surface. Infection smells like dental plaque -- quite disgusting. My suggestion is to pull up your top lip (then pull down the bottom lip) in the mirror in daylight and look for redness in your gums. If you can pinpoint an area, then soak it with hydrogen peroxide cotton ball 2x a day for a day or two. I would predict that your issue of bad breath will immediately go away, even after you oil pull.

Oh, one more thing. You will need to bend over a sink whilst holding the cotton ball to your gums and let your saliva run out. You may need to do round 2 during the same session. Most importantly, you don't want to swallow anything! Rinse well afterwards. Hope this helps someone, somewhere. All My Best,

[YEA]  A science teacher recommended this to me years ago and I've been doing it ever since. Hydrogen Peroxide is a great mouthwash. It kills the bacteria in your mouth which the cause of bad breath. Also brightens your teeth a bit. I take a swig of 3%, swirl it around my mouth for a min or so, spit it out and wallah, breath is fresh.

Oil pulling with one tablespoon of sesame oil, coconut oil , or rice bran oil. swish and pull one tablespoon of oil for 15-20 min. and spit out the oil. It should be a whiteish foam after 15-20 min of pulling.

This will help with all kinds of infections. It will help dotoxify the entire body.

Posted by Edith (Elizabeth, NJ) on 05/27/2007

[YEA]  Have you ever known somebody with bad breath? Here is the cure.

1-Do gargles with hydrogen peroxide. All the bacteria accumulated by years will be killed and your breath will be as fresh as it can be.

2-Do the same once a week or maybe once a month. If you still have any problem, that I doubt it, probiotics will be the solution for getting rid of bad breath if it is accompanied by body odor.

But the first step is the gargles.

[YEA]  I've used hydrogen peroxide, 3% pharmacy grade cut 50% with water, to rinse my mouth before brushing, which has been a great help with eliminating bad breath and plaque. But here's a remedy that no one may have thought - a treatment for "tinea cruris" commonly known as jock itch. I had an issue with this for several months and during this period, several times a week, I used Curex and other over-the-counter options to eliminate it, spending $20.00 to $30.00 to no avail. I knew hydrogen peroxide was effective in killing bacteria, so, as a last resort, I cut the pharamcy 3% grade 50%, just like the mouth wash, and used it-in 2 days!!! the itch and soreness was gone! No joke. Total cost 20 cents!

[YEA]  I have always used natural remedies to cure my ills or take care of my skin, and when a cousin of mine became ill with liver cancer I started searching the internet frantically (that's how I came across this site) for a way to help him get rid of the toxins in his body, but it was too far gone. He died one month after being diagnosed with the cancer. A few months ago I started dating a gentleman, who is a great guy but he had bad breath, he brushed and gargled Listerine which didn't help, but masked the bad breath for a few minutes. Since it was his breath, and not his personality that was bad, I bought a bottle of hydrogen peroxide for him to brush his teeth and tongue with and also gargle. The next time we went out the bad breath was gone and he said he can tell the difference. I don't know what he had or what happened scientifically but the hydrogen peroxide worked.
