Hydrogen Peroxide -- Understand Percentage by Volume

Hi everyone...Can someone who is a chemist or knowledgeable please confirm something for me?..In the Philippines where I live, HP is only sold in 10% by Volume and 20% by Volume amounts. I remember reading somewhere(I think!!) that 10% by Volume represents a 3% solution of HP, and that 20% by volume of HP represents a 6% solution of HP.

Can someone who is a chemist please confirm whether I'm right or wrong about this ?

Much thanks in advance...

H2O2 and Fasting

Can anyone help?...I have started the h2o2 regimen and am about to start a 14 day fast. Should I discontinue the h2o2 until my fast is completed or continue in conjunction? ....Anthony

How do we convert 35% Food Grade Hyrogen Peroxide to the 3% suggested for internal drop usage? I would like mix 1oz. of the 35% but I'm not sure how much water to add to make it 3%.

Earth Clinic: How do we track when the answer is given from the site?

These stories seem too amazing to be true! I've been doing a few days worth of research and have decided I will try the inhalation method using 0.5% (Food Grade) Hydrogen Peroxide and supplementing with the baking powder in water drink to adjust bodies internal pH (monitoring using litimus paper).

My wife and I will be doing this (for a month or so)as a general health pick-me-up experiment. Our adult daughter is considering trying this to see what effect it will have on her hepatitis rather than the dangerous chemical path of Interferon etc.

While researching this topic I found this very informative paper by a Professor in Ireland it has many references. Of course any individual should fully research his condition before deciding to use any of these methods and inhilation is potentially dangerous with some lung illnesses and to smokers.

i just saw a video by Dr James Hutton on the Conscious Media Network, in it he said that drinking h202 could not get into the bloodstream and to cure various ailments, it would need to be injected. There are also other people who have said that it can over time burn your stomach and cause ulcers - i was wondering if this is the case if it could burn your aesophagus and lungs - i notice when inhalling it it immediately feels like its burning the back of my throat, but it did get rid of a nasty virus i had last yr...........has anyone any thoughts on what Dr Hutton said....

Stan i think you are right.................and Franz from Bankok, I have been wondering about mixing acv with h202 as well - as i take acv for GERD which helps but wanted to take h202, but they are supposed to both be taken on empty stomach, given i only eat morning and evening, should be too hard, but its take one, wait how long before taking the other then wait............before eating breakfast..............would be grateful if there is someone on here who does this who could enlighten us.......

My experience of using acv and peroxide was external not internal and the result tells me to use the two separately with a couple of hours between. I had been using Teds remedy for rosacea sucessfully. I was so used to doing it I didn;t even think twice about measuring - I could have done it with my eyes closed (or so I thought). I woke up one weekend after having a late meal I was suffering heartburn so I was going to take the acv and baking soda. Somehow I got mixed up and put the acv and peoxide together and slathered it on my face. I probobly would have paid a fortune for the resulting chemical peel if I had gone to a salon. My face stayed burned and stayed red for about 8 hours. I spent most of my day making excuses for my own stupidity (I admit I lied through my teeth about allergic reactions). I will say that the next day my skin looked and felt great.

This WAS neat acv and peroxide. Maybe adding water to it would make it different but after my day when my face could have landed a 747 in the back yard i would be wary of taking the two together

Looks like someone got a chemical peel for their face - lol!

Anyway for those who were asking about mixing h202 and acv, and also the affectiveness of drinking h202, i had this reply to my questions, from Ian Weir of an online shop in the UK who sell both products plus much more..............

"H2O2 certainly cannot be absorbed into the blood stream as efficiently through the gut. Our bodies are designed to take oxygen in through the lungs, and injection into the blood is the most efficient way. However the idea behind taking H2O2 into the gut is not necessarily to increase oxygen levels in your blood. You would be better off using Hyper Barric Oxygen Therapy for this. The method of action of the H2O2 in the gut is the scavenging action of the free oxygen acting as a detox.
I cannot recommend that you mix it with ACV or bicarb as i do not know whether this will cause frothing in the stomach and therefore nausea.

Pre-diluted Hydrogen Peroxide: I found 3% hydrogen peroxide in the first aid section of my local health food store which has purified water listed as the only stabilizers are mentioned and there is no poison symbol. The instructions say not to ingest, but it does promote swishing w/an equal amount of water for mouth sores. If this type of product is not safe to ingest with water, then is there a pre-diluted to 3% food grade hp available? I'm a bit nervous about the volatility of the 35% solution.

Article from:

Hydrogen peroxide marshals immune system (w/Video)
June 3rd, 2009

When you were a kid your mom poured it on your scraped finger to stave off infection. When you got older you might have even used it to bleach your hair. Now there's another possible function for this over-the-counter colorless liquid: your body might be using hydrogen peroxide as an envoy that marshals troops of healing cells to wounded tissue.

In the zebrafish tail fin imaged here, a small wound is inflicted at the tip of the fin. Red represents high concentrations of hydrogen peroxide, and blue represents low concentrations. The chemical burst far exceeds the single cell diameter and reaches well into the surrounding tissue. Credit: Philipp Niethammer

Using the zebrafish as an animal model, researchers in the lab of Harvard Medical School professor of systems biology Timothy Mitchison and Dana Farber Cancer Institute professor Thomas Look ( have discovered that when the tail fins of these creatures are injured, a burst of hydrogen peroxide is released from the wound and into the surrounding tissue. Teams of rescue-working white blood cells respond to this chemical herald, crawl to the site of damage, and get to work.

"We've known for quite some time that when the body is wounded, white blood cells show up, and it's really a spectacular piece of biology because these cells detect the wound at some distance," says Mitchison. "But we haven't known what they're responding to. We do know something about what summons white blood cells to areas that are chronically inflamed, but in the case of an isolated physical wound, we haven't really known what the signal is."

These findings are reported in the June 4 issue of the journal Nature.

Philipp Niethammer, a postdoc in Mitchison's lab, and Clemmens Grabber, a postdoc in Look's lab, initiated this research project with no interest in wound healing. Rather, they were studying a groups of molecules called reactive oxygen species, or ROS. These small oxygen-derived molecules, of which hydrogen peroxide is one, have the potential to be both helpful and hurtful. Niethammer and Grabber were simply curious to find ways to detect ROS molecules in an organism.

To do this, they took a gene engineered to change color in the presence of hydrogen peroxide and inserted it into zebrafish embryos. Once the embryos entered the larvae stage after a few days, this synthetic gene spread throughout the entire body, essentially "wiring" the fish so that any discreet location in which hydrogen peroxide appears would glow.

But how do you coax the fish to produce a reactive chemical like hydrogen peroxide in the first place?

Since white blood cells have long been known to produce hydrogen peroxide, one obvious way to initiate chemical production would be to inflict a small wound onto the fish, and then, using microscopy, observe patterns of this chemical as white blood cells gathered around the wound. But much to the researchers surprise, they found that hydrogen peroxide immediately appeared at the wound site, prior to the arrival of any white blood cell, and quickly disseminated into neighboring tissue.

They repeated the experiment, this time in zebrafish where they'd disabled a protein that was previously discovered to produce hydrogen peroxide in the human thyroid gland. Not only did hydrogen peroxide not appear at the wound site, but white blood cells failed to respond to the injury.

"This was our real eureka! moment," says Niethammer. "We weren't too surprised that we could block hydrogen peroxide production through this technique, but what we didn't expect at all was that white blood cells wouldn't respond. This proved that the white blood cells needed hydrogen peroxide to sense the wound, and move towards it."

Of course, zebrafish are not people, and while our genomes share many similarities with these tiny fish, it isn't yet clear that natural selection has conserved this process throughout the evolutionary family tree. Still, these findings offer something of a conceptual shift in how to view human conditions where hydrogen peroxide plays a role.

"When we look at how hydrogen peroxide works in people, this really starts getting intriguing," says Mitchison.

In the human body, hydrogen peroxide is produced primarily in three places: lung, gut, and thyroid gland. Because hydrogen peroxide, and the proteins responsible for producing other ROS molecules, are especially present in lung and gut, the researchers hypothesize that human diseases relevant to these findings would include any in the lung and gut that involve disproportionate levels of white blood cells, like asthma, chronic pulmonary obstruction, and some inflammatory gut diseases.

"Our lungs are supposed to be sterile; our guts are anything but," says Mitchison. "It's very logical that both those tissues produce hydrogen peroxide all the time. Perhaps in conditions like asthma, the lung epithelia is producing too much hydrogen peroxide because it's chronically irritated, which, if our findings translate to humans, would explain inappropriate levels of white blood cells. This is certainly a question worth pursuing."

Mitchison is currently laying the groundwork for investigating this hypothesis.

I think I might have candida.I was considering just using the 3% hydrogen peroxide from my medicine cabinet until I did a little research.I have smoked for years so I know my body could use some extra oxygen.I wanted to know is their any foods, supplements, techniques or anything else I can do to produce hydrogen peroxide NATURALLY in my body? I read that it is in rain water and breast milk. I just dont want to dilute the 35% GRADE SO i WAS WONDERING CAN i GET IT ELSE WHERE?

If you search the web for products that increase the level of oxygen in your blood, that might be a good way. For example, there's one I know of that has fulvic acid with a good number of trace minerals. Just a few drops of this starts the "healing crisis" - I feel a boost of energy and get a sense that my body is detoxing. Recommended doses are up to 21 drops per day, but I usually start with three a day for a few days, then increase to 5, then to 7, etc.... I find that I don't need the full 21 to get the benefits.

Good luck.

We received an email this morning and apparently this website was mentioned on the radio show "Coast to Coast" last night about a hydrogen peroxide treatment. Did anyone hear it? If so, can you tell us what it was about? Thanks!

Interesting that hydrogen peroxide were mentioned on Coast to Coast. I didn't listen myself, but will give some stories relating to this.

The hydrogen peroxide, case after case I see cancer disappearing. It's a long story, but I will be brief. I had once case of a person with cancer on his jaws throughout most of his life, plus cancer around in his forehead area. Ever since childhood, this man, a European had abnormal nail growth full of irregular ridges which he thought is due to his genes. Upon taking the hydrogen peroxide, one capfuls per one liter of water for three weeks, the cancer on his jaws completely disappeared, the skin cancer of his forehead fell off.

In another case a woman of cancer tumor of the breast, which is about 3 inches in diameter, rather small, but upon drinking the hydrogen peroxide in water for about two months and the tumor shrink. It was also interesting that acne, and muddy skin completely disappeared, and the effects of younger looking face set in by about one year. So a 33 year old woman for example began to look like 23 years old. Apparently the hydrogen peroxide cleared up the toxins, and the cells regenerated.

In yet another case, a person had a thick large cancer on his legs. and used a full 35% concentration and claimed it didn't hurt if it was applied on the tumor. In any case the cancer burned off, but with a scar. I don't use 35% and tend to use a much lower concentration. A 3% would be the highest I would do and it still stings. I usually not try to exceed 1.5% concentration.

If there is any other application, I had a 10 year acne on my jaws a long time ago. It disappeared and the skin cleared up by adding one cap 3% H2O2 per liter of water. It's also used for some people who don't like the MMS taste.

H202 and travel

Hi, I have just started on the H202 drops in distilled water. It's been one week and I am flying within Canada this weekend and wondering if anybody can tell me if I should take it with me or just stop for the weekend. I have lowered my dose in case I have to stop for the weekend but I really don't want to. Any help would be appreciated!

Hi Ang, when I went to Europe, I had to buy H2O2 in France due to a tooth ache and I did not have a problem bringing it back in my check in luggage. I would never attempt to put it in my carry on luggage though. Granted it was not food grade H2O2, but perhaps you can transfer it in a small container and put it in check in luggage. The worst thing to happen is they take it away, and you will still have the majority safely at home. Peace, Rena.

35% appears to be quite volatile, and besides that I would bet that it is not allowed to be taken on a plane in the first place. Don't do it.
Replied by CailinDeas

Although the original posting was from May 09 I just want to say that it is NEVER a good idea to take any corrosive materials on a flight, especially as checked luggage. Remember that the cabins are pressurized and luggage is piled on top of one another and there are electrical wires and sometimes even animals in the cargo hold. Check with your airline carrier but chances are a small amount (an ounce?) could be taken in your carry-on where if it ruptures you will know and can clean it up. There are strict regulations in place for everyone's protection, so if in doubt leave it out. :-)

When I travel with only carry-on, I simply use an old 2oz. Stevia dropper with the label still on. Fill about half way with 35% h202, then seal in a small zip lock bag. Breeze through TSA and European baggage check every time...

I have a question. I have read alot about H202 therapy and I understand dilution ratio's, but I just read in one of the articles that store bought distilled water isn't pure enough it has to be double distilled? Can boiling tap water for X amount of time make it pure enough? the article wasn't clear on this. I just bought 12% food grade H202 from a local health food store and want to get started asap. Someone please shed some light on the water quality to be used and if boiling water is safe. Many Thanks.

Boiling water is not adequate. Personally I use a countertop distiller at home (from a wise company). The only problem I can think of with the store bought distilled water is the cheap thin plastic bottles which release chemicals very readily (PETE 1 - I use Pete 7 gallon jugs like the gib poland spring bottles are made of - some models use glass containers).

Hope this helps.

This might be a rethorical question- tell me does taking antioxidants makes the consumption of H2O2 USELESS? and does a high level of oxygen in your blood (a result of H2O2 consumption) negatively affects the T Cells as was indicated by one of the EC readers?

[YEA]   To Ben from Cape Town; Regarding T-Cell counts. I have just started experimenting with 35% orally. I am starting and stopping as I am having some stomach upset. I did four days of the drops as indicated (then stopped) and coincidentally had some lab work done at the same time. I had a 20% to 25% increase in my T-Cell count to my highest ever number (742) I have been following these numbers for 12 years. Obviously this is purely anecdotal and not scientific but it is inspiring me to find an answer to the upset stomach problem.

My question may appear to be stupid but, I would like to know what "T cell" is.

I have been following the protocol and am now up to 16 drops of 35% Food Grade 3 times a day. I have not noticed anything other than some boil-like eruptions are starting to show up on different parts of my body.

What can I do to prevent me from throwing up after taking H2O2?

the best thing you could do is make sure you take it at least 3 hours after you eat. It always makes me queezy even when i think about taking it. Mind over matter. it works. i havent thrown up before but have felt like it many times. remember if you do throw it up then you have to take it again.

i also got boils. but they went away and havent come back in years now.

keep it up.

Hydrogen Peroxide and DMSO

In the book "DMSO: Nature's Healer by Dr. Morton Walker (who acknowledges Dr.William C.Douglass, H202 advocator, in page vii), I read the following:

"If superoxide anions are present in quantity as a result of ecological alteration such as radiation toxicity, water pollution, chemotherapy, or other stressors, the body's ability to detoxify is affected. Instead, superoxide, and superoxide dismutase form hydrogen peroxide. Lipid peroxidation takes place. More hydroxyl radicals develop and bring on cellular damage with degenerative disease. DMSO offsets these effects and brings the body back to a more normal state."

"Free radical pathology is an intrincate part of virtually every metabolic dysfuction you can think of. To illustrate, cancer manufactures prodigious quantities of hydrogen peroxide, which then generate the hydroxyl radical. This is probably part of the reason why DMSO has proved to be valuable in the treatment of cancer."

*Bolds are mine.

I am very concerned because H202 is supposed to cure cancer. I don't understand. Does cancer manufactures its own hydrogen peroxide? Is hydrogen peroxide a danger in our blood and cells? It is nonsense.

I am taking hydrogen peroxide by inhalation right now. I have been following the advices of many physicians who advocate this molecule, including Dr.Williams.

Could you please give me an explanation? Am I misunderstanding something?

Thank you so much in advance for your help.

Best regards,
