With Multiple Issues, Can I Still Do Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy?

01/27/2012: Judy from Torrance, Calif, Usa: TED, I am hoping you can answer this, I know you are extremely busy.. I have a low white count 3.2. , and have had this for some time.. I have asthma, arthritis everywhere, macular degeneration (dry), 2 TKRs. Also, looking at posssible shoulder surgery. I also have LARGE vericose veins, from mid-thigh to ankle.. I want to start the Hydrogen Peroxide therapy. I was hoping to use our natural well water. (110' down) I take, selenium, folic acid, garlic, areds, lutein, zeaxanthin, vit c, d3 (10,000) a day, magnesium, zinc and kelp. I also use a nebulizer once a day/albuterol sulfate 0.083%. I was hoping you could send to my email.

03/21/2012: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: A lot of asthma issues are due to a fungus, and are treated accordingly. The best one against the fungus is B3 niacinamide 250 mg 3 times a day, and 500 mg before sleep. This will also help with the arthritis, as both asthma and arthritis are due to fungus anyway, that was not considered in your supplements. White cell blood counts are rather easily raised up with lysine 1000 mg x 3 take hourly for a month, and zinc acetate or zinc gluconate 25 mg for a month with copper chlorophyllin once a day will usually help. MSM is commonly used to help arthritis 1000 mg x 3, and macular degeneration is low in antioxidants, vitamin E, lycopene, taurine. But what helps most will be DMAE, but must be careful as it causes side effects (strange ones), so therefore it is taken very low dose say 1/16 teaspoon a day, with the vitamin E and EDTA 100 mg if possible. DMAE is known to reduce lipofucsin, but in so doing it releases free heavy metals which is why vitamin E and EDTA will lessen the impact, but this may not be considered taken intially once the fungus is out of the way first!


How to Make H2O2 Palatable

11/30/2011: Anonymous from Anonymous: Hi Ted, I've been reading the EC site and I'm confused. I've read that some people use the FGHP in their coffee. Starbucks? 7-11? Home brewed? I take my H202 in 8oz of distilled water and then I drink a couple of cups of home-brewed coffee (I use filtered water). Is this OK? Or, am I negating the effects of the H202?

Some people say they mix the H202 in "juice." That's pretty nebulous as there's tons of "juices". Is apple juice (frozen mixed with distilled water) OK, or is there one you'd recommend?

I've been at 25 drops twice a day (I can't do the third dose because of my schedule and meds) for 14 days now and I find that my stomach gets really queazy with the afternoon dose. Will adding 14 teaspoon of Baking Soda help? Or will it negate the effects of H202?

Thank you, Ted

11/30/2011: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: H2O2 if you add into any organic compounds, such as orange juice, apple juice, will tend to neutralized somewhat in a liquid solution, rendering the solutions weaker. In a stronger H2O2 most get neutralized, but in a weaker H2O2, some get neutralized. I usually do the standard 1 capful H2O2 3% per one liter and used this as drinking water once every other day, and mixed with anything such as baking soda if I need to. But the baking soda alkaline mix is taken with or without H2O2 after meals. If it is taken before meals, the stomach tends to get queazy, that's because the body's stomach acid is highest when we are hungry. And the 25 drops depends also on the amount of H2O2 and water in a solution, as an example you can't take 3% H2O2 directly, and even in weak 1.5% solution that is harmful too. The maximum H2O2 concentration in any water mix is 0.5%, which can be taken as the standard. So 25 drops of 35% is too strong if it is mixed in a cup of water. Baking soda doesn't neutralized H2O2 as it is a non-organic compound.


02/20/2012: Orshi from Exeter, Uk replies: Hi, I don't understand now im confused, if Ted says the 25 drops of 35% FGHP in a cup of water is too strong... Then why is it safe to work it up to 25 drops 3 times a day by the protocol in the books and then stay on 25drops*2 a day as long as needed?

Or maybe the cup of water is less than what I use? I use about 270ml distilled water. Is that safe?

Any answer would be appreciated Thank you Orshi

03/29/2012: Pattiecake85 from Vancouver, Bc, Canada replies: Hi there, I'm hoping someone might have some info that will help me. I started taking 29% HP food grade last Monday the 26th. 29% is the only percentage I could find where I live in British Columbia, Canada. They do not sell 35% anywhere here. I have been unsuccessful in finding any formulas or measurements for diluting 29% H2O2 so I've just been going by the 35% measurements. I started with 3 drops diluted in 8 OZ of distilled water 3 times a day. I am now at 6 drops still being diluted in the same amount of water. I'm assuming that this would be ok because the 29% has less potency then 35% which people are diluting in the same amount of water and talking it internally.

I really would love to be sure though and have some accurate measurements so I can rest assure that I am going about the H2O2 therapy properly without any complications to my body. I am doing the therapy to treat HSV2 and also for overall health. If you have any useful information that would help guide me during this process it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you so much!!

11/11/2013: Blitz_40 from Clay, Alabama replies: I drink my H2O2 in plain water & I had alot of trouble at first. I learned quickly to not breath through my nose when drinking so I won't taste it & then I immediately chew on a couple of green grapes (swallowing the juice only, spit out the pulp) to kill the after taste. Not sure why it works, but it does.

Hydrogen Peroxide - Acne Help

08/22/2011: Anonymous from Anonymous: Dear Ted,

Thank you so much for your post about HP on the earthclinic website. I came across the website searching for acne remedies.

I just started using HP and it has cleared up my acne fast. However, I am worried about it's long term health risks. I know you explained in your post that pharma companies point out dangers of HP so their business isn't jeopardized. But I am still very worried because I have read on numerous other websites that our skin cells are similar to microbes/bacteria etc so when hp kills those it kills our skin cells also (including www.acne.org website.) Please advise me on this. Is it safe to use HP 2/3 times a day every single day? On the bottle it says 'do not use more than 7 days.'

Also, I have started rinsing my mouth with it too. Is that also completely safe?

Thank you SO much for your time

08/22/2011: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: HP is an oxidative therapy. You can do it but not forever definitely. What I can do, I can do alternate days, but for some people 5 days on and 2 days off. The schedules works for different people. If the acne isn't there I wouldn't probably use it until it comes back. Now the numbers of days to come back is divided by two, and that tells you the number of days you can be off. So if it takes 4 days to come back, divided by 2 means you can be off only two days. HP works by detoxing your body so it is only part of the overall remedy to lessen it, the other is regular bowel movement and some hydrogen peroxide 3% food grade one capful in one liter at least once a week is fine for me, even if I don't have any problems, but it does clear my blood too. Sure they can say H2O2 don't go in blood or that it causes embolism, but blood tests from people who take H2O2 found to their surprise an increase in blood oxygen and the fact that it causes embolism is taking to an extreme since we are consuming only 1 capful of H2O2 3% food grade in one liter of water, is not enough to cause it.

One word of warning (and this comes from many of my clients asking me to post this warning): Do not take accutane (or isoretinoin), it will cause lifetime disability, even briefly.


Anonymous replies: "Thank you so much for your reply.
I feel my acne coming back when I don't apply hp. But I'll try the alternate days idea. Thanks for the accutane warning, I stopped short of taking it and turned to natural remedies. I am 24 and like many acne sufferers tried everything I could to get rid of acne but it kept coming back. My dermatologist prescribed doxycycline and differin. The doxycycline wreaked havoc on my digestive system by killing all the good probitic bacteria also. I noticed that cutting out foods containing hydrogenated oils helped me but acne came back. So only things I discovered that helped are benzoyl peroxide, acv, epsom salt(as face wash) and HP. HP I decided to use because acv didn't get rid of my acne completely and it was coming back. I am afraid same might happen with HP.

I can't find the reason behind my acne. I feel it's the water where I live or something in the environment and not that my blood is toxic. But I'm not sure. This is because I'm in the U.S. But when I go to the U.K. my acne disappears! I installed a chlorine shower filter and am hoping that helps.

So you are saying that hp does kill skin cells and shouldn't be used every day but is safe if used on alternate days? I am still confused on whether I should keep using it or not. It has definitely helped with my red marks. My acne is like red bumps and mainly on cheeks and chin. Forehead is clear. I feel dandruff is playing a role too and my skin becomes very dry and flaky in the U.S.

Also, I think I have low oxygen in my blood but am too scared to take it orally. I feel this because as a teenager I had red cheeks (a nice, healthy flush) which slowly disappeared but came back when I worked out even for a few minutes. However, I have been running 2 miles per day and the blood flow is not getting to my cheeks.

Again, any more advice from you esp on hp use every day will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you"

Ted responds to Anonymous: "So you are saying that hp does kill skin cells and shouldn't be used every day but is safe if used on alternate days?
No, I meant taken orally. Apply on face it can be applied without problems, the concentration of hydrogen peroxide used topically application is between 0.5% to 1.5%, with median use around 1% to 1.5%. You won't notice much with 0.5%

Also, I think I have low oxygen in my blood but am too scared to take it orally.
If I feel taking orally is dangerous, consider will I drink if hydrogen peroxide 3% in a swimming pool tank will harm? Or one drop 3% in one liter will harm me. If the answer is no, I will try that concentration and slowly increase the concentration.


08/24/2011: Anonymous replies: Ok thanks. So I can apply 1 to 1.5% HP on my face every day? I am worried about 'free radical damage' wrinkles and other skin problems that people claim HP causes. Thanks."

09/03/2011: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "It won't cause as much free radical damage as do UV rays. You can also put lotion on it, vitamin E, after the hydrogen peroxide.


09/25/2011: Alex from Miami, Florida replies: Hi, you need to check your hormones and not from your basic doc. but from a doc. that is familiar with alternative health there more than just a 2-3-4 hormones but also your food consumption/ digestion.
02/07/2012: Sarah from Murray, Utah replies: Order a copy of this book, "The One Minute Cure", by Madison Cavanaugh. It explains everything you need to know about H202 Therapy. It talks about inhalation and ingestion. I highly reccomend having a copy because it will answer all your questions. Hope this helps.
05/13/2012: Genevieve from La Veta, Co. replies: Hi, I also have acne. I've had it for 5 years now, tried everything. Just recently (less then a week ago) I started using 3% hydrogen peroxide on my entire face and chest. I am a skin picker and when I used the solution on my wounds they quickly scabbed up turned a gross color and made it impossible for me to go outside! Anyways, yesterday I was able to peel away my scabs and my skin (nose skin mostly) is good-as-new. My acne has also cleared quite considerably, and continues to do so everyday. I apply the solution after I take a shower because I too believe the water pounding against my face is tainted and like to cleanse any of that off afterwards. Did I mention I use a Bentonite clay mask before taking a shower? I mix 3 tbsp. B. C. With 1 tsp. Spirulina and a half tsp. Chlorella, for a green look, and because I also supplement with both. The masks I do have dramatically increased my skins overall health. Anyways, as a chronic acne sufferer I am probably the best suited to give ANYONE the best information on what methods are available to treat acne. If you are interested in Bentonite clay check out ABOUTCLAY. Com, you'll be glad you did. If you live in the U. S. The best place to buy the clay is Mountain Rose Herbs. Here's an article on Spirulina and Chlorella, http://www.naturalnews.com/SpecialReports/Superfoods.pdf. And the best website for learning about H2O2 that I've come across thus far would have to be, http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/ciencia/ciencia_industryweapons33.htm.

For a diet that goes against all dis-ease check out the Raw Food Diet, good websites to start with are FitOnRaw. Com, FredericPatenaude. com, and JinjeeTalifero.com.

The internet is full of misleading information. H2O2 is a great alternative medicine and I would read The One Minute Cure website before beLIEving in anything some random commenter says.

Best of Luck!

Is Hydrogen Peroxide That Has Benzoic Acid As a Preservative Safe?

05/10/2011: J. : Hello Ted,

I have been reading your posts on EC. I'm especially interested in Hydrogen Peroxide. Recently I bought a bottle 6% H2O2 that has Benzoic acid as preservative. Is it safe for me to orally consume the H2O2 after dilution to 3%? It is difficult for me to find food grade 35% H2O2. Your reply is very much appreciated.

05/19/2011: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Benzoic acid is also found in small amounts in various natural fruits. Much of the negative press is about sodium benzoate as it readily degrades to benzene. It's found in Coke and Pepsi. Benzoic acid is safer, assuming the H2O2 clearly labels that it is, and therefore is safe to consume.


05/29/2011: J. replies: Hi Ted, thank you very much for your reply to my e-mail. A few days ago I purchased another bottle of 6% H2O2. This particular brand is made in Thailand by the GPO (The Government Pharmaceutical Organization, Bangkok Thailand). There is no indication on the bottle label that it contains stabilizers or preservatives. I have tested the H2O2 for stabilizers/preservatives as per your direction on EC. I put some H2O2 in a covered dish under the sun for some time, there was no bubble formation or color change to the solution. From this, I presumed that this particular H2O2 is free of stabilizers or preservatives. I could be right or wrong! Ted, maybe you are familiar with the 6% H2O2 made by the GPO. I would appreciate it if you could clarify that this H2O2 if free of stabilizers/preservatives. By the way Ted, your bicarbonate plus ACV formula has helped me with my heart burn.

Thank you Ted."

06/17/2011: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "H2O2 test there is another test. You put H2O2 in a glass of water. It will show a yellowish streak. All GPO and all commercial H2O2 have stabilizers in Thailand, except medical grade or chemical grade. Interesting fact is that stabilizers added to H2O2 never work, I think they add that to prevent you from consuming it since they are cancer causing.


06/28/2011: Jill from Lapeer, Michigan, Usa replies: Hello Ted,

My name is Jill and I have been using 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide for several year now. I got my food grade from a great web site called rebekahspureliving.com. They were very helpful. 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide has changed my life and I would olny use food grade to injest. I hope this helps..Jill

Question About Treating Horses with Hydrogen Peroxide

04/29/2011: Anonymous : Ted,

I train race horses. I recently have been reading about the benefits of food grade hydrogen peroxide, if used in the proper way. In the racing industry many horses have equine protozoal myeloencephaliltis (E.P.M). They contract this from the feces of opossums which may contain sporocysts - cysts that contain spores that can reproduce asexually. Horses can ingest these sporocysts with feed, grass or water contaminated with opossum feces. The protozoa can leave lesions on the spinal cord and brain stem. It is this neurological damage that can cause the various symptoms of EPM.

I have a couple of questions of which I would like to ask for your opinion.

1: Would treating the horse with I.V. use help and what would the dosage be, approximately? We probably would not be able to use a slow drip, but we could certainly use a 60cc syringe and treat 3-4 times a week, using glucose or saline solution. How long would the blood vessel dilation last? I have read that I.V use can be beneficial to the lungs and respiratory system.

2: Could diluting hydrogen peroxide into their drinking water be beneficial? They drink between 15 and 20 gallons a day. We change the water 3 to 4 times a day and would be able to add drops at each changing. My concern is if this would do damage to their stomach. What would be the ration of water to peroxide?

3: Would soaking a horses feet in a tub of water diluted with hydrogen peroxide help to take out soreness, and what would the ratio be of water to peroxide. We do have filtered water at our barn. Also I was wondering if it could be used in a nebulizer.

My utmost concern is with health and well being of my horses. My veterinarian is willing to help me treat my horses with this method if I get the right protocol for this use. I am hoping you can offer me some help with this.

Thank You for your time.

05/27/2011: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: In general you get about the same results with oral and IV. If horses drink a lot of water I would give them 0.50% Hydrogen peroxide in water or 0.40%. It will not affect their stomach. If soreness is helped with hydrogen peroxide, is fine, but there is also lugol's applied external will help out initially the soreness and there is always DMSO apply to the area the same, but you have to clean the area first. It will help initial soreness. If painful long term soreness then it's tetracycline HCl for a couple of days as it decreases breakdown of collagen by decreasing collagenase around the feet.


Questions About H2O2 for a Heart Condition; Okay to Take H2O2 While Traveling?

08/13/2010: Yatra : Hi Ted,

Hope this will find you healthy and in good terms with life.

I have been reading your comments in the earth clinic, and I have a question for you. I have been researching in the internet about H2O2 and only find old researches up to now, and nothing really up to date apart of the questions and answers at the earth clinic site.

Here is my question: For a person with heart conditions (hypertrophic miocardy), and a small cyst in the liver what would be your recomendations for taking H2O2? Do you think it would be beneficial? What would be the doses recommended of the 3%? For how long?
This person travels a lot by plane, some times long journeys to India or South America from Europe. Is it ok to take the H2O2 while traveling? And at the same day as flying in airplanes? I read also in the internet that if you are going to travel by plane, you have to stop to take H2O2 a few days before because of the pressure. Is that true?

Looking forward to hear from you as soon as possible.
Tahnk you so much for all the information.
Many blessings to you and warm regards

08/14/2010: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Since H2O2 stays in the blood for about 50 minutes taking it 1 hour before the plane flies can therefore be taken on same day. Magnesium is helpful for heart while vitamin normalize blood antioxidant I think helpful for long plane trips but I would avoid calcium due to heart attacks and stroke taking such supplements.


08/14/2010: Yatra replies: Dear Ted

Thank you for your prompt answer. What about the doses using 3% H2O2? I have found many controversy about that.
I really appreciate all your input.

Talking about calcium, this person takes calcium magnesium as she is 58 years old, with osteopeny. What do you think about Calcium/magnesium butyrate?

Thank you very very much for everything
Many blessings and warm regards

08/14/2010: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Osteopenia is the body's inability to form bone matrices for a couple of reasons fungi in bones, metabolic acidosis, low magnesium (if you know Dr. Kervan`s work biological transmutation), low collagen which holds bone matrices and certain minerals that strengthens bones such as strontium and of course the old fashion vitamin d3 between 5000 iu to 10000 iu a day. You need 2 molecules magnesium for each calcium and vitamin d will raise calcium without the need to take them. Cows don't drink milk for calcium. Boron kills fungus and normalize calcium metabolism also.

The average dose H2O2 without problems is one capful 3 percent per liter of water.

Questions About Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide and Supplements

08/04/2010: Randy from California, USA: Dear Ted,

I have read an article a couple of times regarding the consumption of food-grade hydrogen peroxide. I purchased one gallon of it because I have friends and relatives that will probably start, as well. I consume 10 drops of 35% food grade in 8 ounces of distilled water 3 times a day. I decided to begin consuming H202 to continue to be proactive with my health.

I have a question regarding a statement I read in the article about consuming supplements, such as; Vitamin C, fish/fat oils (I take one gel that has 3, 6, &9) and a multi vitamin.

It stated NO to consuming these products if you consume the hydrogen peroxide.

In your opinion, does this mean at NO time at all OR to avoid at the time you are drinking the water?

I have taken supplements daily for many years. (Antioxidants, L Arginine, Acetyl Carnitine, Veg & Fruit tablets, Coral Calcium, B Complex, Gelatin, Multi Vitamin, Vitamin C, Glucosamine, Fish Flax & Borage Oil, Gingko, & CoQ10, etc.)

Let me know and thank you!

08/10/2010: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Dear Randy:

In practice I have no negative effects from consuming any of the supplements when drinking H2O2. The real problem lies in taking H2O2 everyday is a problem. As it reduces the body's antioxidant level. The opposite is true, Vitamin C is often taken to neutralize the negative effects of H2O2. The H2O2 stays in your blood for an average of 50 minutes. Therefore any antioxidants can be taken after an hour or so and it won't have any problems. This is why in treatment of certain virus, or bacteria, H2O2 dose is often taken at 30 minutes apart for a couple of times, such as 4 to 8 times on the average, thereafter, any supplements can be taken so it won't interfere is H2O2 's effect.


08/11/2010: Randy replies: Ted, thank you for answering my email. In regard to antioxidants, I take Astaxanthin softgel (4mg) and a softgel Grape Seed Whole Grape & Resveratrol (100mg & 15mg) each day.

Is that amount sufficient?

Also, how often should I take the H2O2 for body maintenance? Currently I take 3 - eight ounce glasses with 10 drops of 35% food grade H2O2 in each glass per day.

Let me know and thank you.


08/12/2010: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: The dosages on research to get some positive effects are closer to 500 mg and more. It would be too expensive in human dose at that level. I am currently looking at lower dose than 500 mg to have a therapeutic effect. Red wine exteract is preferable at around 100 mg to 250 mg. I am looking at optimum dose for that one also. Grape seed 100 mg is usually the average dose I used. H2o2 generally twice a day to three times a day is a good dose I have used.


08/15/2010: Randy replies: Ted, again thank you for the response.

I get my supplements online from Swanson for the most part. They have Red Wine Extract, 90 gels, 500mg for $8.00 per bottle. I have found it hard to beat their quality and pricing.


Thank you,


Can Hydrogen Peroxide Cause the Hair to Grey Prematurely?

11/17/2009: Lizzy from Niskayuna, Ny: Ted will taking Hydrogen peroxide (H202) regularly cause the hair to prematurely grey? If so, any way to counteract this? Is this the same with ozonated water? Thanks.

11/18/2009: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Too much hydrogen peroxide might cause grey fast, but a vitamin C will prevent that. It's dose is 1000 mg per day usually will reverse that.

Could Hydrogen Peroxide Be Causing Anal Itch?

05/25/2009: RC : Greetings Ted! I would like to ask if H202 might be causing an itching in my anus area. I had one hemorrhoid flare-up - 4 years ago - and it seems like this is happening again. I've been ingesting H202 for approx. 3 weeks, following the instructions on the bottle bought at the health food store. week #1: 1/2 tsp in 1 gallon of distilled water #2 1/tsp in 1 gallon of distilled water #3 1 tsp in 1 gallon of water, and I drink approx. 1/2 gallon per day. Also some digestive issues such as gas and diarrhea. I also get runny stool from ACV. Any suggestions, please? Thanks you for sharing your expertise and experiences on Earth Clinic. RC

05/30/2009: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: The runny diarrhea spreads the bacteria to the outer area of the anus and is causing the infection. After a lot of trial and error, I found that it's best to use an alkaline form of potassium mixed in equal solution of milk of magnesia to rid of the itchiness. The remedy depends on the type of potassium we consider. Assuming it's potassium citrate (tripotassium citrate). The mixture is 25% of potassium citrate dissolved in 75% solution of Milk of Magnesia. A standard milk of magnesia has 8% magnesium hydroxide solution, and generally no aluminum should be added. In other countries they sell you only Magnesium hydroxide, in which case an 8% of magnesium is prepared with 92% water before preparing the milk of magnesia. The milk of magnesia will bring dryness to the area, when it is applied liberally in the area, but it is the potassium citrate that will remove the itchiness. If a potassium citrate cannot be obtained, then potassium carbonate is a possible substitute, but is added less roughly 5-10% of that will be potassium carbonate instead. If on the otherhand, no potassium carbonate can be found, then potassium bicarbonate is used, but more is required, such as 30-40% will be mixed with the milk of magnesia. Other forms of potassium form, in alkaline are also possible, but measurement requires more precision and most people do not have proper measurements in general. A weaker solution is also possible by simply adding baking soda to the milk of magnesia, but it won't perform as well as the potassium. The potassium prevents attachment of bacteria and fungus from lodging in the skin area by causing the collagen of the skin to loosen up, whereby relieving the problem. This idea can be confirmed if anyone are aware of a certain microscope preparation where you use potassium hydroxide to scrape off fingernail fungus or skin area and we used potassium hydroxide to dissolve all the skin, collagen materials, leaving only the fungus there for further examination. In the same idea we can use this as a skin application to prevent bacteria and fungus from lodging in the skin. Killing them directly the fungus and bacteria and even the virus isn't as nearly as effective as preventing them from lodging onto health skin and killing them. The reason is once they no longer have foothold, they can's survive very long once they have no colonies or homes to form.

A much simpler remedy is possible using just plain white distilled vinegar and apply to the area of just milk of magnesia alone apply to the area is possible also. But in practice they tend to be weak when is used either one. It's therefore not likely that it was the H2O2 that's causing the itchiness, it's likely that the diarrhea caused the bacteria to spread to outer area causing the infection.

The other problems is distilled water should not be used in a drinking as they are acidic in nature when mixing H2O2 for drinking. The preferred method is to reconstitute the distilled water adding 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt per liter of water, or just using mineral water and then finally add the H2O2. If distilled water is left out in open hair for a couple of minutes they become acid, and pH dips below 7 because there's no carbonates and bicarbonate to buffer them. And hence it may work against you, creating excessive gas and diarrhea.

One way to reduce excessive gas is to both reduce intake of fungus rich foods, found in peanuts, potatoes, white bread, wheat products, fermented products. Chlorophyll, real chlorophyll anyway (food color E140 is the most pure form) can help reduce gas, using a couple of drops, or the use of chlorophyllin food color E141, water solubel kind may help reduce the gases too. A much easier way is to take activated charcoal as per package instruction. The H2O2 must NOT be the drug store H2O2, but a chemical supply H2O2 type since they typically add a cancer causing stabilizers, mostly to discourage H2O2 use. Some people use food grade H2O2, or laboratory or technical grade H2O2 is better, but I would not use drug store. These tend to cause excessive gas and diarrhea and causes problems. Changing the source of H2O2 to the ones sold by chemical supply store for lab purposes will not have the stabilizers. It is easy to see the stabilizers. Just add a couple of drops of H2O2 in a clean glass of water out in the sun. It will show a yellow squiggly color as it is added. That yellowish color are the stabilizers, but in practice they don't really stabilize that much, seems to be more unstable, especially if one add an ammonia solution to that, which breaks down just as quickly as the ones without the added stabilizers. The problem appears to be that H2O2 is what is causing the problem from a drug store bought H2O2 with a cancer causing stabilizers, whose color is you can see having a yellow color. A good H2O2 is generally colorless and clear.

Questions About Detoxing with Food Grade H2O2

05/05/2009: Pierre from Phuket, Thailand: Hi Ted,

My name is Pierre and have some questions about Hydrogen Peroxide

The friend of me tell me about the hydrogen peroxide couple of months ago and I Made my small research, I started with 10 drops 3 time per day 6% HP food grade,

day 1 - 30 dr. day 2 - 35 dr. day 3 - 40 dr. .... and rise 5 Drops per day ..

Now I am on 80 drops 3/3 and thats for the last 4 weeks. Please share your experience, thats the way to detox, is to long and the quantity of HP 6% is this right ? Or I have to rise the daily intake and for how long time? I was founded dif. opinions but want to know yours. My idea on the beginning was to help my Allergy and to re-please fasting detox with something more powerful .. like a lemonade fasting I have dan couple of years ago.

Thanks for your time and I really loved your ideas at earth-clinic and for sure they help much,

With Best Regards Pierre from Phuket

05/12/2009: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Dear Pierre:

I have found that it's not the amount of H2O2 that detoxify the body, but rather a consistently stable dose of H2O2 more than does the job. It's the same analogy as the Rabbit and the Tortoise race, slow and steady wins the race. The remedy I used is quite simple, just add a fair amount of H2O2 into the drinking water and drink as if it's an ordinary drinking water. Just add enough of the H2O2 that you won't know it's there or at least just the amount that is comfortable. For example my dose is to add 1 cap per liter of water or roughly 30 drops of 3% H2O2 per liter of water. It is just a rough measurement. That's the highest H2O2 I used without noticing it's there and drink that as a regular drinking water. The drinking water will therefore constantly reduce the toxins but there is another kind of toxins that H2O2 might not be able to neutralized and it can be switched over once a month or twice a month, only one or two day with the sodium thiosulfate drops. Which is 10% sodium thiosulfate, 10 drops per liter of water. It tends to neutralize other types of toxins. Initial taking of this may have a laxative effect, more like detoxification, thereafter no more problems. There was one time where the H2O2 helped so much in clearing the skin, I continued taking the H2O2 as a drinking water for roughly 2 years, continuously. Apparently I helped reverse the aging process to a great extent. I had to discontinue the H2O2 since I need to pursue other experiments such as fulvic acid, sodium thiosulfate, and other things, and now I may take it for only a shorter period for 1-2 months only. However, the H2O2 can be added as long as I like and in fact most spring waters do contain trace H2O2 but it's concentration is relatively low, but Lourdes water has a relatively higher concentration of H2O2, which is why it is attributed to have healing properties. Actually I believe it's both H2O2 and the parts per million of hydrogen gas, which is found in Kangen water and many healing water as well.


Can You Take Too Many H2O2 Baths?

03/12/2009: Ben from Cape Town, South Africa: Ted, you seem to be the person to direct the following question to. I am ingesting H2O2 orally, already at seven drops from 25 down but I took a H2O2 bath some time ago and were so impressed that I now do this daily-quarter pint H2O2 35% in a full tub. Am I overdoing this and what can happen to me? I am feeling a little queesy of late but compared to the energy boost, it is nothing. The doctors around here does not seem to know(want to know) the answer to this.

03/16/2009: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: The limit is determined by how well the skin doesn't have problem. Practically speaking that's the only limit, so if no skin problem, no headaches, no burns, then it can be used as often as a person likes. The entire issue depends on the concentration where H2O2 doesn't sting the skin, skin burns or cause skin dryness. The limit of H2O2 should not exceed 1.5% concentration, and a maximum of 2%. Other books might mention higher concentrations. Ideally a 0.5% has the least problems along with some effectivness. So concentration is an individual choice so the range that was used is between 0.5% up to 2% Frequency can be as frequent (from taking internally as in every 2 hours at 0.5% concentation. For baths it is a lot less frequent so it won't dry the skin.

Virus tends to reproduce quickly by three hours. A fungus takes much longer to reproduce. Energy is restored when Epstein Barr Virus are destroyed or reduced. The source can come from any place, from vaccines, contaminated foods, etc. Most virus has a weakness of H2O2 being the most consistent of all remedies. It's actually much queasier to use sodium chlorite 25% mixed with vinegar at much less dose then those used in H2O2, and hence are relatively much easier.

Laminitis From Hydrogen Peroxide Possible?

06/23/2008: WM from Alloway, NJ--US: It is reported that sunlight, ozone and moisture produce hydrogen peroxide (HP). If this is so then horses grazing in the early morning are exposed to H2O2. It is also suspected that moisture on the grasses also contain high fructan (sugars). And it is suspected that these sugars are a triggering mechanism of Laminitis (Barbaro-Seabisquit etc). Can ingested H2O2 be a cause of Laminitis in horses??

06/25/2008: Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: For me the problem is that laminitis don't happen if horses are fed in the wild free from environmental pollutants, heavy metals, chlorides and fluorides. Typically people who raise grass aren't aware that certain hardy grasses are a real problem and should be aware what certain kinds of grasses leads to laminitis. This happened very clearly in cases of Kangaroos that resulted in sickness and eventual death, after feeding them with signal grasses. There is a way probable way to find out what kinds of grasses are safe for horses as they have good instinct in finding what kinds of grasses are safe. So the issue appears to be toxins in certain kinds of grasses, not just the carbohydrate or fructan arguments, see further information kangaroo's findings here, that resulted in their death just from eating grasses of certain species.


Give animals a choice of grasses may be one way to find what is causing it.

As to the issue of glucose intolerance leading to laminitis from the excessive use of herbicide and nitrate fertilizers as being the cause, this can be proven easily after an ingestion of herbicide, the blood sugar goes up off the scale and the damages it does to the neurological disorders eventually lead to almost a near permanent condition of blood glucose intolerance, which leads to laminitis. This is why painters who do not eat sweets become diabetic from methanol and thinner use, or an automechanic who uses gasoline to wash engine machine parts, or even the aromatherapist who used too much eucalyptus oil, or even the healthy diet conscious who eats nothing but aspartame and artificial sugar becoming a diabetic. All these cases causes neurological damage leading to glucose intolerant, and I have seen so many times that I wondered why this issue was never addressed in other internet websites. Perhaps we rely excessively on controlled mainsteam media instead of our own empirical research.

As to the issue of hydrogen peroxide causing laminitis, the amount of hydrogen peroxide is so low that it is effect to cause laminitis not likely, typically it is often well below 0.01% that is below detection. As to fructans causing the laminitis, most of the problem appears to be that bacteria and certain fungus mycotoxins on the grasses, are a more likely explanation since they exist in relatively high amounts on moist grasses and grow very quickly in the presence of fructans and carbohydrate sugar. This is why washing hay and grass with water typically are safer for horses. If the mycotoxins holds, the amount of them is more toxic to the horse than it is for hydrogen peroxide anyway. In any event the fungus mycotoxins will more than neutralize any trace hydrogen peroxide there is.

Interestingly, I have many cases of people becoming diabetic and even animals from exposure to fungus, molds and mycotoxins than those eating sugar and fructans. These fungus and mycotoxin and perhaps water loving bacteria is what causes great intestinal flora imbalance or gut imbalances in the horses, leading to excessive lactic acid production, causing acid blood, leading to laminitis.

Therefore, a simple remedy to reduce laminitis and neutralizing lactic acid buildup is simple: 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda per liter of water. In larger amounts, we use the same ratio. Some sea salt added can also normalize the intestinal flora. However excessive chlorinated water can also lead to some glucose intolerant due to its effect on inflammation of glandular system and a dechlorinator added to the drinking water may help too.

Can You Take Vitamins with Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy?

04/09/2008: DC from Iowa: HI! I found Earthclinic one day looking for a natural remedy for my husband for his sinus infection. I have since fell head over heels in love with the website and have spread the word to whoever will listen. We have tried many of the different things that are suggested from the website and other readers. It's been great! Our question that we have is if you can take vitamins and herbs with the hydrogen peroxide solution to drink? We wondered if one could take some herbs later during the day or if it is not recommended. I will be starting pre-natal vitamins possibly and was wondering if that would be negative thing also? What would be recommended to replace pre-natal vitamins?! Thanks.

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Happy to hear of the results!

A hydrogen peroxide is preferably taken from other vitamins and minerals supplements two hours or more apart, since the peroxide in the blood generally stays with you for about 50 minutes to an hour. As a precaution I used the minimum two hour rule.

The hydrogen peroxide is the best detox substance that can remove a lot of toxins found in the blood, generally most chemical toxins and biological toxins from bacteria, fungus being the major ones.

Therefore a hydrogen peroxide is taken FIRST, before a mineral and vitamins are taken so that the body does not reject them. They reject them whenever the toxins are found in high amounts in the blood and hence it defeats the purpose of the vitamins and minerals. I have done some experiments with food intolerances and vitamin intolerances, (although I lack diagnostic equipment - and have to rely much on observations - which is a time consuming process) and I have found that the body is generally intolerant to vitamins, minerals, and even food which give a way to allergies and sins problems. Therefore, if the toxins were removed first, the allergies and rejections are reduced greatly. However I have also found that hydrogen peroxide is synergistic with baking soda added, such as 10 drops 3% H2O2 food grade plus 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda as a more effective detox remedy. The most effective detox remedy that I have found so far (as of a month ago) was the 1/8 teaspoon of baking soda plus 1/8 teaspoon of sodium carbonate (washing soda) - what scientist called it the carbicarb - which reduces CO2 buildup and allows the body to heal faster is also added with drops of Hydrogen peroxide. It works this way: the baking soda causes the body to alkalize by reducing carbon dioxide in the body, increase absorption of oxygen and the hydrogen peroxide, furthermore provides the necessary free oxygen necessary to neutralize toxic chemicals. The most dramatic demonstration I have seen is the use of this the hydrogen peroxide in neutralizing 90% of most toxins found in tap water. Tap water in large cities actually has many drugs found that we drink which is potentially disrupting to the body's system. It is made worse almost exponentially when you the water department adds chlorine and fluorine to the water (fluorosilicic acid is even more toxic that sodium fluoride used by Hilter to control population and prisoners behavior) and hence, borax is commonly added in small pinches to neutralize the fluorine, while interestingly chlorine can easily be neutralize with just hydrogen peroxide drops. That's the beauty of the hydrogen peroxide - it even neutralizes chlorinated water!

As to the "pre-natal" vitamins, it is indeed convenient for mothers to just buy a pill and take them. Unfortunately, I have to do a little more homework and read each individual ingredients and screen off any minerals and vitamins that are generally unstable or not really bioavailable. This includes, anything with hydrochloride attached to a a chemical name - the reason is simple, hydrochlorides are generally unstable and they cause the body to be acid. That's bad because 90% of all our foods we eat are acid forming food. One example is thiamine hydrochloride, or vitamin B1. It is unstable and it is acid. I will prefer another form of B1 such as thiamine mononitrate. Niacin vitamin B3 causes flushing, but it may cause other things to "flush" where it is your internal organs and might remotely do glandular damage, and hence I prefer niacinamide instead of niacin.
As to minerals, I will avoid anything with carbonates or oxide attached as a surname. The reason is simple: carbonates and oxide are generally not water soluble and therefore cannot go to the bloodstream. One easy example is magnesium oxide, which nearly insoluble in water, and I prefer magnesium chloride, magnesium citrate, or magnesium gluconate, on the simple reason that these are more water soluble and bioavailable. You get much better quality vitamins if they were purchased separately than if it is combined in one pill. Also a liquid vitamins and softgels are generally superior any day than a tablet form, for the same reason that if I put this liquid vitamins in the glass, it is water soluble and it reaches the bloodstream faster, while a tablet form may not even dissolved "instantly" and I have to wait. In some cases companies added so much wax to the tablet it hardly dissolves. Such waxes are often referred to by "magnesium stearate", and a non water soluble component is the tricalcium phosphate, which does little except reduces absorption as these become magnets to minerals from further going in the bloodstream. Therefore, I prefer to buy them separately than buy them in individual pre-natal. It SHOULD be noted that the most common deficiency in a pregnant mother (my experience!) has always been the water soluble vitamin deficiency. And it is quite often that mothers get hair loss after or during pregnancy, often as a result of a key mineral deficiency that protects the body against fungus. I haven't identified all minerals, but I did identify some, through primitive methods, which are boron (sodium tetraborate - or "borax"), manganese, molybdenum, vanadium, and chromium,. The primary driver of a mother's yeast infection if metabolic acidosis. The most dangerous cause of metabolic acidosis is benzene (found in soft drink that says "sodium benzoate"), nearly all hydrocarbons (gasoline, coal tar, paint thinners) and mehanol and formaldehyde (found in all aspartame added food such as chewing gums and nearly every diet soda and sugar free products). One of the theories of hair loss, and there are many is that fungus produces acetaldehyde and the body CANNOT get rid of it, but amazingly molybdenum does. The molybdenum I have tested myself, does an great job as an antifungal remedy, unfortunately, they are not sold and not use in the amount I tested, but its toxicity is extremely low (don't even compare to the toxicity of fluoride and aspartame - it is outright dangerous), and I used about 25 mg dose, of sodium molybdate (element of molybdenum) as a resonable dose, although I do use more, in practice, but 25 mg is the minimum dose and if I want more, I just take it more frequently in one day, such as 4 times a day, for example. Mothers also have low iron, and interestingly molybdenum increases iron utilization. I personally suspect that many mothers with a yeast infection has a molybdenum deficiency and metabolic acidosis (biological waste toxins given off by the baby) because people don't generally alkalize themselves and molybdenum supplements are too low or not sold in health food stores, at least not in mg, only in mcg, which I personally believed to be inadequate.

Hence in the area of vitamins, I would pay close attention water soluble vitamins as the body CANNOT store water soluble vitamins as easily as fat soluble vitamins, much like fats on our body. Those include vitamin B complex, and vitamin C, but it might include certain minerals where the minerals are water soluble too, such as chromium chloride, magnesium chloride, for example. It should be noted that this lack of storing ability is not just theory, but throughout my entire life, I am always constantly depleted with water soluble vitamins more so than fat soluble vitamins. An interesting off mark, but lifesaving common deficiency is lack of salinity, since the salt we used in food are acid and make people sick. So people generally avoided eating salts, but the body need it, but not in the form of salt sold in supermarket, often referred to as "common table salt", but in a form of sea salt, where its pH is alkaline, which' usually is between 7.5 - 8.5, while the common table salt has pH of 5, which is acid. Now a good common table salt should have a pH of neutral such as 7 or slightly more alkaline to match or blood pH such as 7.35, but an acid common table salt causes people to be hungry, drink more water and may get obese from water retention, and it's acidity my be due to the additives such as an aluminum compounds they added to the common table salt that is causing all sorts of health problems. Yes, a sea salt does not have iodine, and I may supplement my iodine by adding 1-5 drops in 1/2 glass of water as a mouthwash, and the iodine is absorbed by transdermal absorption of the tongue and mouth. The two most important minerals I think is always the zinc and magnesium, while Iodine is the third, and the dark horse mineral is the molybdenum. The much neglected alkaline remedy is very important because it effects nearly ALL biochemical reactions in the body and this is why pH control is so important. If it is not important, then why do aquarium shops measure pH in fish tank and regularly remove chlorine from the water. Assuming I am a fish tank, I would probably do the same to measure the pH and remove the chlorine, but fluoride removal is something I would do too.

Refuting H2O2 As Cancer Cause

03/13/2008: K from LA: she found the following article about the H2O2 regiment and was wondering whether Ted could refute it. Hydrogen Peroxide Named as Cancer Agent in Cigarette Smoke March 3, 2008 Research Summary The hydrogen peroxide in cigarette smoke causes cells in the lungs to become cancerous, according to new research from the University of California at Davis. HealthDay News reported Feb. 28 that lead author Tzipora Goldkorn and colleagues found that airway cells exposed to hydrogen peroxide showed the same kinds of abnormal molecular signs of cancer development as those exposed to cigarette smoke. "With the five-year survival rate for people with lung cancer at a dismally low 15.5 percent, we hope this study will provide better insight into the identification of new therapeutic targets," said Goldkorn. The authors also said that the findings could aid in the development of less-hazardous cigarettes. The research was published in the March 2008 issue of the FASEB Journal, the official journal of the Federation of American Society for Experimental Biology.

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Actually there's a secret in research circles and I was one of them, I can easily manipulate the hydrogen peroxide to cause cancer or anti-cancer properties, if I were to get funding on the research either which ways. The problems I found is the financiers are not necessarily want the right information to be put out.

For example, if I were to manipulate hydrogen peroxide to cause cancer this would be easy. The concentration has to exceed 6% and done long enough such as several months of human life of continuous use and I used the hydrogen peroxide that is the drug store brand where they add the stabilizers using a power cancer promoter acrylamide. This would be interesting.

On the other hand, people don't realize what is meant by Superoxide dismutase. It used to be a very popular supplements decades ago and the body produces this enzyme to kill virus and promote anti tumor effects or to prevent cancer. It's the same with interferon which causes the white blood cells to produce hydrogen peroxide necessary to digest the tumor causing cells or cancer viruses. The key is the concentration used, the best one it used is always below 0.5% taken internally and if externally a maximum of 3% and done only briefly not continously as the research was exposed to a very long period of time necessary to induce cancer. The secret about the superoxide dismutase is produced by the body's enzyme which in turn produces hydrogen peroxide just the same to protect against cancer, and believe it or not the superoxide dismutase which creates hydrogen peroxide to PREVENT pancreatic cancer.

It's the same thing with hypothyroidism, a lithium in tiny amounts can help with increase metabolism such as 1-2 mg/per day, but at the amount doctors give you which is 250 mg of lithium carbonate, it can kill the metabolism and cause obesity.

The secret is in the concentration and in fact hydrogen peroxide create from superoxide dismutase or interferon or even low concentration of hydrogen peroxide is actually used to DIGEST tiny cancer causing viruses at low concentration. Why low concentration and not a high one? It is simple: virus cancer are tiny, their cells are so small that you don't need much to kill them by peroxide. If you still don't get it I give you a tiny ice 1 mm in length and another ice 10 inches in length and put in a water of 75 degree Fahrenheit. Could you guess which ice cube would disappear? It is the 1 mm ice, which is analogous to that of a cancer virus, while on the other hand a large ice of 10 inches in length could take days to dissolve.

People don't understand what causes cancer and there's a lot of disinformation on that one. I can tell you that I can cause cancer to occur at any part of the body you want without the need to touch that specific area simply by injecting a very low concentration of 5 mg - 10 mg of aspartame or formaldehyde at a specific part of the brain, which controls that specific part of the body. So if I were to cause a tumor growth on the stomach there is a specific area to cause that in the brain. There is a brain map that you can explore and this is how one German scientist was able to know the exact location of the tumor just by looking at the CAT scans of the brain. The part of the hydrogen peroxide that causes cancer comes from the STRONG CONCENTRATION necessary to cause damage at a cellular level not tiny micron size virus size and hence the concentration must be much stronger. If I were to dissolve the 10 inch ice in a giant swimming pool the same time as it is required for 1 mm tiny ice cube necessary to cause cellular damage, as an analogy for example, I will have to raise the swimming pool water temperatures to about 500 degrees fahrenheit necessary to have the same damaging effects it has on the virus.

As a short brief, I attached a superoxide dismutase hydrogen peroxide used for treatment of pancreatic cancer and it's benefit. Mother nature uses just the right amount to effect the killing. It's we humans that are dangerous and go overboard with extreme doses, perhaps as part of a disinformation, ignorance, but for me as a former research, to get funding not necessarily in the best interest of society, but usually to promote pharma drugs instead of more natural alternative as a more sound investment if a person were to use research for commercial purposes.

02/07/2011: Thalia from Sydney, Australia replies: Hi Ted, I have been diluting 35% FD Hydrogen Peroxide to 0.05% and drinking it. Basically, having 3 drops of 35% in 180ml of water once a day. Do you think at this dosage this is safe?

Inhalation and Asthma

01/17/2008: KR from Rancho Cucamonga, CA: Where do I begin to describe my journey into the ails of pulmonary distress? It all started years ago when my now 6-year old was a toddler at 2 and diagnosed with asthma. For close to five years she has been through all kinds of drugs, just treating the symptoms of her debilitating disease. She had it all, wheezing, shortness of breath, coughing with enormous amounts of phlegm lodged and trapped in her lungs Before we had our nebulizer and the knowledge of how to use it, we would rush her to ER where theyd give her a breathing treatment (albuterol) and another 5-day dosage of steroid to eliminate her symptoms, which, nonetheless, still wouldnt completely dissipate. It has been an ongoing, horrific battle from the beginning. Who knows how she even got this disease as she was breastfed from birth to two whole years and genetically, asthma is not on my side of the family nor my husbands!

Our next bout with pulmonary issues presented with our 8-year old who, just last year, had pneumonia in both lungs and has had ongoing issues with sinusitis and dry cough in the winter.

The final blow came with our 2-year old, who for close to 4 months was getting what they first diagnosed as bronchiolitis, then the next month, bronchitis, then back to bronchiolitis and back and forth, back and forth, never being cured and certainly not even relieved from this horrible outcome for much longer than a week at a time. The doctor just kept prescribing more antibiotics and different ones every time only to have it return worse and more ferocious than the previous attacks. Her cough was so powerful it would make the capillaries in her face burst and she couldnt hold down much, due to the force of her coughing and inevitably, suffered cough-induced vomiting (or was it the drugs or the infection, who knows?). That on top of fever often reaching as high as 103.5 and consistent reoccurrence of her sicknesses, just pushed me over the edge. My childs doctor was now telling me they didnt think it was bacterial, but rather viral since the infection didnt respond long term to the antibiotics and kept coming back. The doctor then informed me that if it was something viral, there was nothing they could do and shed have to wait it out or possibly, could suffer for the rest of her life! Now do you think a mother and lover of her offspring is going to sit back and listen to dooms day regarding the very apple of her eye? There was not another moment to waste with the medical community so I got to work researching every extra moment I could find to get to the bottom of something natural to deliver us all from everything, including the asthma and sinusitis. I came across some natural but costly remedies for asthma that I wouldnt be able to try unless I made the initial investment which I knew we couldnt do so I kept looking...

Low and behold, I finally found it here on Earth Clinic. I intuitively knew it was the answer but was scared out of my mind to use it because theres not much info on how to apply it to children directly on this site or any other which is unfortunate because I believe the majority of asthma sufferers are children and the number one killer of children worldwide is pneumonia! Therefore, from my now new knowledge, it makes sense that the Munro HP Inhalation method is THE number one remedy for all such lung sickness (asthma, pneumonia, bronchitis, bronchiolitis, etc.). I prayed and asked God to direct my paths as I knew I was embarking on something extraordinary but unknown and unfamiliar to me. In complete and utter desperation for a remedy to relieve my children, I pulled out my Walmart brand 3% hydrogen peroxide from Aaron Industries, diluted it 1 part HP to 3 parts purified water (bottled water) and poured from that solution the little amount needed into the nebulizer capsule. During a violent cough attack, I began with my baby who breathed very little and INSTANTANEOUSLY, her cough disappeared as if she never had it to begin with. I then began giving her regular and daily treatments (2-4 per day and as much as shed breath in one hit which often wasnt a lot because she wouldnt tolerate it for too long) of this same solution and very quickly noticed her lungs being cleared and no fever flair ups. After approximately one week, she was miraculously cured of that blasted virus that wouldnt let go!!! I took her back to the doctor for her follow-up shortly thereafter, and the doctor checked her lungs with her stethoscope. The doc dropped her jaw to the floor because I dont believe she even thought my baby would have bounced back so soon. I then informed her that I had found a natural remedy that I wouldnt share with her since its so outside of her box. She concurred and stated she did not want to know what it was but on the flipside, she encouraged me to continue it because it actually works! I then gently "fired" her because she wanted to prescribe my baby on a daily regiment of steroids in the form of Pulmicort Respules using the nebulizer which I had already been there and done that with her sister for all these years. I apprised this doc that I, mom, would now not only be handling my childrens infections but their asthma care as well (how empowering is that?!). Simultaneously, I began these same treatments for my asthmatic 6-year old because she was experiencing continual dry cough that previously would take many days and drugs to see any relief from. Again, INSTANTANEOUSLY, her cough dissipated and shed go straight back to bed, able to sleep through the rest of the entire night without further disturbance. This was unheard of for all the years that we have suffered with her; weve endured many sleepless and restless nights. Now, whenever she coughs at night from her asthma, she gets what we dubbed, "natural nebulizer" and she really raves about it, no more racing heart and shakes from the after-effects of albuterol. For my 8-year old, the natural nebulizer initially helped her cough out some mucous but I prescribed her some ACV (regular, store-bought) in her juice every day and a lot of tea with honey which seemed to help her situation with sinusitis out even more. In a couple of weeks, she also was completely cleaned and cleared up.

For me personally, I started my menstrual cycle and began to experience my usual, incredibly painful headache. I wouldnt say a migraine but something close to it. I thought, why not, itd be better than popping another pill (acetaminophen) with the potential of vomiting as has occurred to me in the past. I began our natural nebulizer treatments but upped the HP dosage a bit for myself and viola, my headaches disappeared instantaneously too and the treatments really made my heavy, achy body feel light and unloaded again. I began every two hours for up to two days and then experienced what I think could have been a cleansing but Im not sure. I dont know if it was a cleansing because I normally get severe diarrhea at the onset of my menstruation. All I know is my stomach cramped up really bad and I could feel something fighting in there. The stool I passed would most certainly have been diarrhea as always in the past, but actually came out solid, though still soft. It was simply unbelievable! I felt 100% after that until later that night when my whole body ached and that nasty headache came firing back. I snuck downstairs so as not to awake my husband and took a natural nebulizer treatment which drove away the headache and enabled me to sleep through the rest of the night like a baby. The aches in my body left along with the headache and I was convinced that HP and I will never be apart again! Theres a new one (remedy) for PMS. Currently, I only use these natural nebulizer treatments for dire necessities for myself and baby but more regularly on my asthmatic as she needs the maintenance. Thank you for hosting this site which I now visit daily to learn as much as I can. Thank you to all who contribute their input because were all learning and growing together through the good and the bad knowing that "all things work together for the good"

I just have a question for Ted in regard to the issue with hydrogen peroxide, used over a period of time, is it true that it erodes red blood cells as stated in the erroneous article about the South Carolina woman with MS who was injected with it IV? Can you address the red blood cell issue on that as I now understand that she died of the drugs NOT the HP treatments but would still like more info regarding the red blood cell issue.

Also, from my experience in dealing with small children especially, it is of critical importance that the HP inhalation method solution be diluted down considerably as they will not tolerate any stinging to their throat. As reported, I found the diluted solution to still do wonders for my children. Another side bar: I believe in treating children with the HP inhalation method, one should consider using a nebulizer machine instead of a spray bottle, the vapor is finer and more tolerable instead of just a mist and its easier for them to handle the whole breathing in and out motion because the machine does so much more for them. I know in my state if a child is diagnosed with asthma, a doctor is legally bound to order the machine for them which will be delivered to your door free of charge. The reason for this being that sometimes asthma attacks are so acute that without this home treatment tool, one could die before arriving to a hospital so it is a liability issue for the doctor. My suggestion for those without this machine that are not able to pay for one is to take your child to the doctor and if not already diagnosed with asthma, get an asthma diagnosis and request that the doctor "fill a prescription" by ordering you a nebulizer machine. Just be sure not to disclose if you plan on using it as a natural nebulizer versus the nemesis (i.e. albuterol). I am not advocating dumping out your albuterol as I still keep some in case of emergencies but as far as using our natural nebulizer treatments for my asthmatic, so far so good as we have not had the need since for anything in our cupboard full of asthma-related drugs.

Another way I began using hydrogen peroxide since my discovery here is for my hair. I found the method described by someone on this site of putting the HP into your shampoo and shaking it up to clean your hair a little too harsh on my scalp. Instead, being a dirty blonde, I prefer the method of spraying straight 3% on my hair after a shower, while wet, and brushing it all the way through. This method has brightened my hair considerably, and my husband believes it looks better than a $300.00 professional color treatment. I am now back to a bouncing blonde, natural and highlighted looking instead of that chemical, bleached look. I just turned 40 two days ago and now look again closer to 30 thanks to that invaluable substance, hydrogen peroxide.

Anyway, I better try to keep this under 2000 words but I have been boosted, encouraged and empowered by the information that originated on this site. Thanks again for a job well done!

Sincerely Smitten,


Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Dear Kr:

I was also one of those unlucky child with asthma attacks in the late 1960s to early 1970s, but of course my parents were indifferent, so I had to find it myself.

The remedy I used, and I didn't know there was a nebulizer back then, was to add a bottle of white distilled vinegar added to a pump spray and sprayed it in the air, and just breath in the mist. Another method I have tried as a child was to add vinegar into the mechanical humdififier and breathe in. I have since modified that to use a 1% H2O2, using a mechanical humidifier (the ones with a spinning wheels and a pole that goes into the solution) and used that to treat asthma attacks I had years ago. Today I don't have it all, perhaps from regularly taking N -Acetyl Cysteine and maybe some arginine and lysine, I will never know, since I don't have it.

The standard nebulizer I used today is a 1% H2O2 solution that is breathed indirectly into the air as a fine mist so that it won't cause the irritation using the old pump spray.

What I can say is I can't afford large mechanical nebulizer machines and a humidifier can produce pretty fine mists quite well. I don't know what humidifiers are used in the States today, but if I had an asthma attack, I would most likely used the mechanical humidifier and add 1% H2O2 into the solution. A newer more effective against pneumonia, at least for me is to add the 1%-5% xylitol to prevent the pneumonia from lodging in the breathing passages, thus effectively killing them. Actually even a 5% xylitol solution without the H2O2 can be used for pneumonia too, although I may add some sea salt, 2% for example to help expand the breathing passages. The reason why it does that was that most sea salt, at least for me, is the pH is about 8, which is alkaline, causes the breathing passages to be cleared. If it is acid,or that the body is acid, the breathing passages is contracted. So I have my own H2O2, xylitol and sea salt remedies to treat pneumonia and asthma. If things came from worse to worse, then a small amount of borax is dissolved which is about 0.1%-0.5% concentration in the 1% H2O2 solution into a mechanical humidifier. The machine has since broken, so I haven't had the budget to purchase a new one, but I am sure it is within the budget for most people.

There is also a newer ones I used, to help with general breathing and removal of pollution (diesel smoke emissions), although a milder remedy is to use an ultrasonic humidifier, with sea salt added to the solution, which creates a fog to be wonderful to help with breathing problem and removing air pollution from my house which causes breathing problem. The reason is the back door of my house is a tour bus, which they turn their engine on all night. It should be noted that diesel fuel burning can initiate asthma as the diesel fuel is an irritant, so the remedy is used just to clear the pollution from my house. The mechanism in sea salt fog purifies the air quickly by the mechanism of a sea salt fog grabbing hold of the smoke particulates and then the sea salt particulates, along with the smoke drops to the floor. After which I clean the floor of the fog, without it ever going into my lungs. The problems about using the ultrasonic humidifer I used here is this Chinese brand, the fog gets recirculated to the bottom fan, and the salt fogs hits the electronic components inside the device, shorting the device after about 2 months of use. I need to modify the device where a silicone glue or plastic protects the electronic components from shorting itself out. This one for me works the best for most general breathing problems without the use of H2O2, but only uses the sea salt, and sometimes I add xylitol to prevent pneumonia. The mechanics of xylitol works this way: the sugar polyols basically unglues the pneumonia and viruses from lodging in the lungs. Once they dislodges, they die rather quickly because there is no longer any food to feed them, and the xylitol itself is unfermentable. I could also add the vinegar into my ultrasonic humidifier, but never the H2O2 because the metal components of the ultrasound which creates the fog have a tendency to degrade the H2O2 and hence are not used. H2O2 therefore is used by me usingly only the mechanical humidifier, which spins like a stop to create a mist.

I take the issue of pneumonia rather seriously because a lot of people I know, especially older people and young children, die from pneumonia, but it appears there is hope through using H2O2, but also xylitol, vinegar and sea salt. It is unusual that doctors today can't think out of the box, because I once studied for pre-medicine majoring in biochemistry and microbiology during my college days in the U.S. and I think out of the box all the time. Of course, I was severely ostracized by my friends (still a nightmare even to today) so perhaps, because of the need conformity is so great is what made many doctors unable to think independently. I was always that crazy guy with some weird research or information so luckily I made the right choice by changing my occupation to fields of computer instead of further pursuing medicine, and keeping the topic of health as a simple hobby of mind during my spare time.

Most menstruation can be lessened to a great degree if 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water plus 6 drops of H2O2 is added. The extra purification effect it has on the blood from H2O2, and alkalization will reduce the menstrual pain due to bacterial toxin overload. Basically the H2O2 neutralizes toxins by oxidation, but then so does a dechlorinator such as sodium thiosulfate drops. The common remedies for menstruation pains I used are magnesium, aspirin (it has antibiotic potential through the actions of acetylsalicylates but must be dissolved in one full glass of water before takeing them), baking soda, vitamin B complex, vitamin K2, vitamin E and H2O2 drops. These remedies just shorten the bleeding period and make the blood redder (mostly from H2O2 and baking soda), which means the blood is more purified, instead of ominous black blood, which are basically high in pathogens. The reason why I know I used to examine why the blood were so black in some people, which was what causng the menstrual pain in the first place.

Question: I just have a question for Ted in regard to the issue with hydrogen peroxide, used over a period of time, is it true that it erodes red blood cells as stated in the erroneous article about the South Carolina woman with MS who was injected with it IV? Can you address the red blood cell issue on that as I now understand that she died of the drugs NOT the HP treatments but would still like more info regarding the red blood cell issue.

It may be the drug use not mentioned because powerful vested interested. As to the question of H2O2 killing red blood cells over time is quite simple to prove. If you prepare a 0.1% concentration of H2O2 in a blood of glass vials, the blood will be bright red. The white blood cells are free of pathogens and the blood is healthy. The blood can be kept healthier and alive more longer if the 0.1% H2O2 is added whenever the blood colors become darker and the blood cells life are extended this way. On the other hand if too much H2O2 is added into the blood vials such as 1% solution, the blood cells become instantly black. If you look at the microscope, the blood cells are dead, become clumped or are destroyed. Therefore, the answer to whether H2O2 kills red blood cells overtime depends on how much H2O2 concentration IV injected into the blood. Most media will try to avoid the other drugs that were used that killed the patient and try to attack alternative medicine unfairly, when a more deadly prozac I have found was what lead to death, or suicide, or even homicidal behavior in the people who took it. Therefore if H2O2 concentration is too high and the blood becomes black, then there is a reduction in red blood cells from the H2O2 destruction, but if a low concentration of H2O2 is added, the blood won't become infected, and the blood is healthier for much longer period of time because it was the H2O2, which purified the blood from infection, rather than H2O2 increasing the content of oxygen. The H2O2, therefore acts like a white blood cells that protects the bacteria from killing off the red blood cells. In the long run, the use of low level of H2O2 allows more healther red blood cells and reduce infections in menstruation woman and this can be noted by the color of the blood. A bright red is a healthy blood, a sick disease blood is quite often black.

Bonded Metal Retainer

12/26/2007: P : Ted, I have read through all your posts on Earth Clinic! Your knowledge is wonderful! I have been using and helping others to use natural/alternative treatments for many years. I have used h202 (and ozone) in the past. I never knew not to use it with braces, as I read in one of your posts! I myself have a thin, bonded metal wire retainer, on the back of my front teeth. Would this be counter indicated for me as well with h202? What about metal amalgams (I do not have any..but others might, even though there is all the negative health issues already surrounding those) One other question. I have been using mega doses of vitamin c for years now, when I am feeling like I contracted an illness. It has almost always worked terrific, and even stopped the illness in its tracks many times. The exception would be a sinus infection or even bacterial throat infection. It either takes much longer, in which case I gave up, or just did not work. Why would I use h202...or which is better or do they both work? Does it in fact depend if the illness is viral or bacterial(and/or fungal)? Thank you

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Would this be counter indicated for me as well with h202?

Such use is problematic, but there is a way around it. The H2O2 tend to degrade much faster in presence of a metal and make such use quite difficult. Toy rockets used H2O2 and they have a metal which causes the H2O2 to degrade which helps propulsion. But if the metal retainer is used, most of the H2O2 would be degraded or destroy by the metals. The metals would undoubtedly weaken the hydrogen peroxide that is used. To prevent problems with such use a lower concentration hydrogen peroxide is needed, such as 0.5% instead of the usual 1% so this would not destroy or harm the metals. The hydrogen peroxide are more stable as there is higher concentration of water, and it will react more with the intended target of the bacteria and has little effect on the metal. That's the only way I can get around the problems of excess metal in the mouth. If metal amalgams is indicated, a hydrogen peroxide can still be used, but at 1/2 of the concentration to prevent them from being reacted with the metal, which I found to be 0.5% concentration. A higher concentration and the hydrogen peroxide tend to be unstable and degrade much quicker. The concentration of 0.5% is a conservative one, but keep it below 1% is often best. Some mouthwash hydrogen peroxide preparation use about 1.5-2% concentration and this is too high which tends to cause burns on the tongue in some people, usually occurs near 2%, rather than 1.5%, and that also depends on how long the peroxide stays in the mouth. In generally you can't keep it longer than a minute, for concentration at 1% or above, but a lower amount less than 1% are rather problem free.

I have been using Vitamin C for years, usually against the cold, but what I found out was drinking several drops of 3% H2O2 in 1 glass of water with 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda, plus 50-100 mg of zinc acetate at the first sign of illness usually helps or at least reduce the severity of the illness.

A vitamin C can be taken later, or much before as a preventive. This works best because the body's antioxidant can be low well before an illness, and during the illness. This is why once the illness is struck, vitamin C effectiveness can work or cannot work in some cases. Usually a vitamin C works best as a preventive, such as 1000 mg of vitamin C sodium ascorbate twice or three times a week, to prevent the antioxidant levels to be low. This is better than taking vitamin C during the onset of an illness. The reason why H2O2 has to be taken FIRST, is that a virus, tends to grow very quick, quite often overwhelming the body's immune system within 2-3 hours, its achieves saturation, and for the next 48 hours, the virus inflames the entire body's glandular system, causing hormonal imbalance. The same is also true of the other water soluble vitamin, such as vitamin B complex, which I do take as a preventive but only once a week, or twice a week.

Baking soda is a bicarbonate that the body needs in proper amount and they too are water soluble and I can be depleted rather quickly, if poor diets, lack of sleep hits me.

Most of the illness were from too much sugar, too much fats (usually the bad fats!), acid forming foods, lack of water soluble vitamins and electrolytes. This nearly covers 80% of my sickness, the other one happens to be free metals, which is about the other 10%, the rest seems to be pseudoestrogens, and other toxic chemicals that enters the food chain.

Sinus and throat infections take about more than half of the patients, at least in one public hospitals, which they call respiratory illness. The best remedy is a sinus spray, I prepare with a 10 cc syrine (no needles!), 5% sea salt, a drop or two of 3% H2O2, and a small pinch of xylitol sprayed in my nostrils. It's not a perfect remedy but it works most of the time for me. At least I don't have any more sinus infections. The other tip that is quite helpful is for sinus infection is peppermint oil, as it deactivates certain virus. What I do is 2-4 drops of peppermint oil put into my mouth, I inhale through the mouth, and exhale through the nose. It simply just stops my sinus problem. Xylitol apparently is quite effective in reducing the symptoms and severity should they develop into a pneumonia as the condition spreads further too. What I did was add a tablespoon of xylitol and sea salt in one liter of water using my ultrasonic humidifier. One word of caution: it creates thick fog in the room, so don't overdo it. The other remedy against sinus is to dissolve the mucus, which I used 500 mg of N Acetyl Cysteine. Some manufactures add aspartame, and this has caused me to be diabetic and I was actually cured with taking sodium vanadate. In some cases of person with chronic sinusitus, I found their urinary sugar to be high, amazingly sometimes from drinking diet cola (aspartame) and never take zinc supplements. The breathing passages, especially the nose has high levels of L-Carnosine, so in event of a chronic sinus, in some cases, taking 1000 mg x 4 L-Carnosine may help. Certain other amino acids, such as 4000 mg L-Arginine and L-Glutamine is often needed too, to increase the level of immunity. L-Lysine amino acid is antiviral, but the dose is often 1000 mg x 4, is taken too. The future of alternative medicine is going to be more use of Amino acid for sure, since all healthy tissue cultures, needs a lot of electrolytes, a lot of amino acid, along with some vitamins, hormones, and minerals. The tissue culture experience taught me that natural medicine we used today frequently avoid the issue of amino acid, electrolytes and hormones, not just killing the virus, although quite important as they tend to overwhelm the system during infection. Usually its the hydrogen peroxide, ozone, zinc, magnesium, baking soda, arginine, glutamine, lysine, and other similar supplements that are helpful against these things, not just the vitamin C.

One very simple remedy for sinus infection is just to get an ozone generator. Some others such as ultrasonic humidifier with the added xylitol and sea salt to further help. I might sometimes also by a plastic syrine without the needles from a drug store as a nasal sprayer adding xylitol and some sea salt and a small drop of H2O2, in a 5cc or 10 cc syringe. Ultrasonic humidifier really clears my nose, but the trick is to add the sea salt, ideally its about 2-5%, too much and it won't work, as the temperature of the salted water is raised to high to reach boiling point and won't become a salt-xylitol fog. I don't know how well this works with H2O2 added, since the metal on the ultrasonics tend to degrade them, although not completely and some do get into the atmosphere. It's just a precaution that the severity of illness won't go into a full blown pneumonia. A recent deadly adenovirus 14 common cold, has so far killed over 100 children in U.S. which did develop into a pneumonia, after a sinus and breathing problems too.

Not a Cure-all

12/17/2007: Alan from Amsterdam, NL: Hello Ted, I have recently found an article from 1985 about hydrogen peroxide: Lack of antibacterial activity after intravenous hydrogen peroxide infusion in experimental Escherichia coli sepsis.


I think it is important for people to know H2O2 isn't a magic bullet against every microbe. What are your thoughts about this article?

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Firstly, let me clear the popular misconception. Any antibiotics, antifungal or any medication in the world cannot kill every organism in the world, with possible exception of a nuclear holocaust. There is no single magic bullet, Mother nature knows that. I have never tried to find that. It also needs to be reminded tha at least officially that there is no cure for sepsis, septicemia or blood poisoning. Although I have managed to find one that worked, but certainly never 100%, statistically 100% is impossible, just look at the bell curve. Certain bacteria (mostly in the intestines such as e.coli are resistant any therapies and I am aware of this research for over 10 years (more like 15), and it is improper use of H2O2 by the authorities to treat sepsis. Basically what you are dealing here is blood poisoning by e. coli, which in most cases of blood poisoning, regardless of the type of treatment, a patient usually dies. You can ask any doctor who had experience with blood poisoning, or septicemia. However, the standard treatment of blood poisoning is actually colloidal silver, that is the only known remedy shown to work against the blood poisoning of septicemia where diagnosis of must cases such as this is fatal. Antibiotics of any form would also be useless. The remedy can be taken with the use of a couple of tablespoons every two hour. A proper preparation for a colloidal silver of this kind is only about 10 drops of 3% H2O2 is added in a 500 cc colloidal silver, and to be used by taken internally, about a tablespoon or two every two hours, but the use of I.V. in general are risky and I don't really like the idea of anything using I.V. I have seen many cases of blood poisoning from infections introduce through the I.V. in general. Whether I.V. use is good or bad, is always and still is decided by the doctor. In a standard microbiology there are bacteria that is resistant to acid, some are even resistant to alkaline, and another one resistant oxygen, and another in very high heat. So there is all sorts of bacteria and viruses that are resistant to various elements. One interesting "official" release is that prions (from mad cow disease) are virtually resistant to fire, heat, cold, acid, hydrogen peroxide, and alcohol, etc. It is almost virtually indestructible, but in my personal opinion prions is a protein, a tannic acid can easily kill them. One interesting little known fact is that AIDS virus don't get killed in alcohol, but it can be killed by boiling hot acetone to kill them. Of course alcohol hand washing in hospitals won't eliminate ALL organism, otherwise alcoholics won't need antibiotics! So a better bullet is colloidal silver mixed with H2O2 before use against sepsis, but tannins (from pomegranate, tannic acid, etc.) in generally are effective in most cases of bacteria and are much more broad spectrum, but still there might be lurking somewhere certain organism that can survive that, too, who knows?

Using H2O2 in a Nebulizer

11/28/2007: Melissa from Alexandria, Virginia: A woman I have become friends with recently has horrible lung damage from a toxic spray used on a restuarant grill where she worked. She is on oxygen 24 hours a day and now in the hospital with pneumonia. I don't believe she even has the lung strength to get the nasal spray down into her lung area. Could using a nebulizer with Hydrogen Peroxide 3% be a better option for her? If so, should she put it in the nebulizer at full 3% strength (meaning not diluted with water)? Also, how many times a day should she use the nebulizer? She is desperate for help. Please respond ASAP!

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: I can use a full strength 3% H2O2 as a nebulizer. The key for me is to use just enough so that the stinging doesn't occur. So I might breathe a 3% H2O2 for a minute or two then stop perhaps 10 minutes, then continue is what I have done in the past.

In my experience, the frequent use of H2O2 may cause drying, which is good since in a pneumonia is filled with fluids and tends to dry up the fluids filled in the lungs. Therefore common sense is needed as to the frequency of use. Certain anti-fungal aromatherapy smelling salts might be helpful such as camphor for example.

One reason why pneumonia is so unresponsive in current medical practice is the fungus that grows in the lungs. A good antifungal remedy that I have used taken internally is to also take 1/4 teaspoon of borax in one liter of drinking water plus 10 drops of 3% H2O2 and 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda and drink this throughout the day for 4 or 5 days to help me. A combination will be synergistic.

If a frequent H2O2 use results in a headache, I will take 1000 mg of sodium ascorbate vitamin C. Fungus tends to grow whenever the body is acid, and alkalizing is important.

An alternative way if H2O2 is unsuccessful for a couple of days is to use colloidal silver as a nebulizer.

07/07/2008: Melanie from Corozal, Belize replies: You refer to 3% h202. Is that the 35% food grade diluted down to 3% How do you put it in the nebulizer? # of drops or what? I use a nebulizer as I have emphasyma, COPD, CHF as a result of years of smoking. Would the nebulizer tx be as successful as IV?
06/20/2010: Jose from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic replies: did you ever get a reply? or used the nebulizer for your COPD. My mother smoked for years has the same problem, I got the h2o2 and will buy a mechanical humidifier. It is 38% food grade and I am nosure how to dilute for drinkin purposes and humidifer purposes... Also I have read h2o2 injections or IV i guess is the only way knwon to clean the lungs, anyone have any opinion on this, I've read Ted from Bangkok does not like the idea of an I.V., I appreciate your response, shes not doing very well, thank you for your help!
01/05/2012: Maggie from North Attleborough, Massachusetts replies: 3% is much too strong for the nebulizer. It burns tha delicate membranes in your nose and throat. I dilute it to 1% (10-15 drops of 3% H2O2 to 20-30 drops of distilled water). I have been very successful with this method for my COPD. I have even begun a blog to explain my story because finding H2O2 has saved my life! Here is the link to my story:




Good Bacteria Affected by Hp?

11/28/2007: V from The Philippines: There two kinds of bacteria in our guts: good and harmful. I wonder if good bacteria are killed by taking HP?

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: HP generally kills best the anaerobes, assuming that normal dose. Anaerobes are generally the harmful bacteria the good bacteria are aerobic bacteria. Most h2o2 dose are quite low and effects mostly the anaerobes.

How Long Is Too Long to Use?

10/18/2007: Alla from New York, New York: My husband added 20 drops of 35% peroxide to a glass of water and drink it 2 times a day for a year. It did not cured anything but he developed GBM -very agressive type of tumor. Using peroxide did not prevent him of getting sick but may be made him sick. Did anyone used peroxide for such a long time?

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: This is an improper remedy. My own remedy is as follows:

'1. The proper remedy is one whole lime plus 1/2 teaspoon (or 1 teaspoon) of baking soda in one glass of water. Taken at least twice a day, until the urinary pH reaches neutral of 7. Most cancer people pH will usually be below 6.

2. The second thing is a 35% peroxide remedy using 20 drops is too much. A proper hydrogen peroxide dose maximum of 12 drops using 3% peroxide. If peroxide remedy is done beyond this, it works against you.

3. Zinc gluconate 50 mg twice a week.

4. If sleeplessness is indicated, some melatonin supplements is taken before sleep, plus 1000 mg of sodium ascorbate three times a day.

5. Most importantly, this one I have seen improvements: one drop of clove oil mixed in drinking water twice a day. Once before lunch and another in early afternoon.

It takes about 3 weeks to see improvement. The issue of cancer is that sometimes a cancer is viral, such as President Nixon's "Cancer-Virus Project" way back during his administration as a war against cancer, but the project turned out to be the creation of the AIDS virus.

Cancer can have other causes, that may be non viral such as fungus, where a remedy of borax is used mixed in high dilutions (1/4 teaspoon of borax per one liter of drinking water). The reason why a peroxide can't result in an agressive form of tumor, unless that person's exposure to depleted uranium as it spreads around from U.S. servicemen, or exposure to noisy electromagnetic field disturbances from high voltage transmission lines, or PCB found in the body then yes, peroxide can't help of environmental exposures are the cause, but that's not to blame using a peroxide. A peroxide at high amounts not only can burn you alive, it can burn cancer alive but much worse. If there is a cancer out there that can live in a hydrogen peroxide solution is not likely. We will also deny Dr. Otto Warburg's experiment (who won a Nobel Prize, 1931 on Medicine) on killing cancer cells exposure oxygen, completely killing the cancer cells at the same time. See Warburg:


The issue therefore appears to be environmental, such as radioactive materials (see hair mineral analysis), urinary pH was not monitored, levels of the body's mineral of magnesium and zinc is lowered, high tension voltages can increase INCIDENCE in cancer (from spikes), or even PCB's that need to be investigated.

05/24/2013: Pao from Manila, Philippines replies: Hi Ted, I just want to ask. you said in this question and I quote: "2. The second thing is a 35% peroxide remedy using 20 drops is too much. A proper hydrogen peroxide dose maximum of 12 drops using 3% peroxide. If peroxide remedy is done beyond this, it works against you."

I will be in therapy of 35% H2O2. The dose will gradually increase 3 to 25 drops then decreases. About 7 days I will be using 20-25 drops 3x per day. Is it ok to do that? I'm trying to cure herpes. Your help will be much be appreciated.

Hydrogen Peroxide and Magnetic Rings

10/13/2007: David from Ohio: Hi there Ted. Quick question if you would be so kind to answer for me that would be greatly appreciated. Can one intake Hydrogen Peroxide 35% Food grade internally and those magnetic rings or magnetic foot braces at the same time? If so is there a certian way of doing so? And do you know much about the rings and braces and if they work or not? Familiar with an Alex Chiu by chance? Any help would be appreciated!

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Dear David: The average hydrogen peroxide concentration I take is about 0.05% to 0.5%. Usually the common dose is just 3 drops of 3% H2O2 PLUS 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda in one full glass of water. Hence the H2O2 to be useable,the concentration must be reduced to 3% H2O2 by adding water. Then the 3% is used in drops as being the most common remedy for actual use.

As for Alex Chiu, yes I am more than familiar with his rings and his arrangement. You get tha polarity wrong, you get sick within 30 minutes. I have managed to prove people who are disbelievers of magnets simply by putting the magnets not in their proper polarity to show them it does effect the health. One woman my friend tried on with improper polarity caused her eyes to be bloodshot red, another one caused extreme headaches. When the magnets are restored to their proper ala Alex Chiu polarity, the side effects disappeared within minutes. Mind you this is no placebo effect since, there was a double blind experiment control was performed, in which the woman followed instructions without knowledge as to which ones was the proper alignment, either by the experiment or the test subjects. Hence, it was only known only AFTER the experimental results were performed that indeed it was the improper polarity that caused the sickness and when a proper polarity was change (still unknown by the experimenter or the test subjects) the effect of red eyes and tears coming were almost immediately gone. While Alex Chiu is not anywhere close to "immortality", it does prove that improper magnetic fields may cause a person to be sick. And if proper polarity were restored, the symptoms were gone within minutes. Hence, if a human body were to have an improper magnetic fields (from sitting on stray magnetic fields, electromagnet radiations) at the very least, a magnet, in their proper polarity would restore NORMAL magnetic fields in the body to stop with the side effects. Hence,certain people who do get sick such as due to improper magnetic fields, will certainly need the magnet,albeit, not 24 hours a day 7 days a week, can be applied for a couple of hours, when sick may help with this problem.

An interesting case of stray electromagnetic fields exists with my own mother who had a headaches for a decade, and one day she told me about the problem. And hence I resolved the problem by asking her to move the radio, located on the top part of the bed be moved about 5 or more meters away. Her headaches stopped the minute the radio was removed away from the bed. Apparently she turns on the radio all night, frequently, and it was located near the head of the bed. Hence, stray magnetic fields, whether from radio, cellphone, and quite possibly spring metal beds, can really mess up the body's normal magnetic fields. Office environment, metallic chairs, can create stray magnetic fields, messing up normal body's magnetic field that can initiate sickness too.

It should be noted that I have experimented with Alex Chiu's magnet configuration and many other configurations. The best configuration had to be modified. Therefore, I have Ted's configuration as follows:

1. To determine proper magnetic polarity, just buy a bar or horseshoe magnetic that has properly labeled "North" and "South". Get a string and see if the horseshoe points to the proper North and South. Once you know this, then a neodynmium, or a ceramic magnets is used on the area. Remember that opposite attracts. If the horsehoe North is attracted to the Neodymium side, then whater that side that is attracted to is the South Pole. This is one very simple way to settle the long controversy of the polarity that has plaqued Alex Chiu's website and was not properly explained. The clue is to BUY then commercial bar magnets with proper North and South. TO avoid a mistake, I bought acouple, just to be sure!

2. The second step involves making a proper ring. The South side of the ceramic magnet on the back side of the hand should face you, and put this on your LEFT HAND PINKY. The OTHER magnet, should be facing North below the palm of your hand on the other side of your LEFT pinky. So that the magnet that is on both ends of your pinky ATTRACT EACH OTHER.

3. In my case, only ONE LEFT HAND PINKY IS SUFFICIENT to get a halth effect.

4. A strong magnets usually is NOT NEEDED. They tend to be too powerful, but on the other hand a ceramic magnets is TOO WEAK. The only way to get the proper size, or the at least the recommended size, is to use a very small neodynmium magnets to do the job. A proper size appears (without the huge side effect) to be between 1/8 to 1/4 inches in diameter, a neodymium size necessary to prove "disbelievers" needs about between 1/2 to 1 inch in diameter of neodynmium, placed in the same area, but with the OPPOSITE of the recommended polarity will cause the person to be SICK.

In Alex Chiu's configuration, uses the same configuration, but all you need to remember is simply Left pinky facing you the South pole is used. Then the magnets polarity attract each other as thus, if you were in a praying with your hands:

'S [left pinky] N' S [right pinky] N

It should be noted that the biggest problems about such use is that the metal spoons get attracted to your pinky making eating difficult, but this is only true if a strong neodynmium magnets were used.

The reason why only the left hand was used is the magnets, at least for me, appears to be too overpowering and hence, all I need was just the left hand will do. If a right hand alone was used, there would be the some pressure on the head. So if the right hand magnets using Alex Chiu were removed, the pressure were removed also.

Certain magnets, if North polarity is faced I found to be helpful for backpain, and a tape was applied to the back. As to the pinky, I simply use a air conditioning tape or a cloth tape as a ring. However you need to cover the two sides with the tape and clearly mark the polarity S to avoid the confusion when putting them on for use.

As to its supposed health effect, just apply a North or South polarity treated water and do the bean sprout tests. It will give you all the answers and at the very least should confirm its effect on growth, if the magnets (unipolar or one pole treated) were applied to
the water. Many other water magnet treated devices simply used two polarities, however, my own experiments reveal only one poles were needed, and North treated to the water is most beneficial to the plant growth and it took me only 7 days to find out using the bean seed germination. The differences between treated and untreated growth were more than 300% difference in length. This you can prove to yourself.

Hence a foot magnets may not be needed. If needed, a hand ring magnets are not needed. It may be to overpowering. As to the foot, I think the left foot helps, but a right foot magnet can be used too, if circulatory problem is indicated too. Two foot magnets can be applied and should have minimum problems since it is away from the body mostly. In practice, just the left pinky for most use should be sufficient.

It is easy to be a skeptic, it is just as easy to be naive about magnets. The only way out of this controversy is simply that I give you the proper information and simply prove it to yourself.

Black Tongue/fungus After Inhalation?

09/25/2007: Ruth : Ted, Thank u firstly for all of your valuable input and help for the many who suffer ill health. I have been using the inhalation method of 3% H202 since July 15th, 2007. I have been suffering with Candida and stomach bloating for 7 years along with lung problems. since inhaling the H202 my tongue started turning purple with black and brown spots in differnent areas. I went to the Md's and he said it was fungus and gave me liquid Nystatin to use orally. He also gave me Difulcan to take internally for 30 days. My question is, is the H202 taking the fungus out thru my mouth and should I let it occur naturally? How dangerous is the fungal occuring on myu tongue? I don't want to stop inhaling the H202 as it helps my breathing so much. What should I do? Kindly advise asap. Many many thanks, Ruth

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Dear Ruth:

The black and purple tongue can have several causes, I will mention only two here, one is from taking certain medications high in bismuth (as in bismuth subsalicylate from Pepto Bismol). Another one is from taking long term antibiotic, which I have seen so many times to cause black, purple and green tongue from too much antibiotic use.

It should be noted that fungus growth is enhanced whenever antibiotics use, because antibiotics are made from fungus, and because they cause the body to accumulate more heavy metals and bring on acidosis.

Hence, hydrogen peroxide may be helpful in the short run of the breathing and kill off the fungus, where the cause is of difficult of breathing is seen to be fungus, but does not directly address the issue of altering dietary supplements to discourage fungus growth.

Hence, removal of specific nutrients favorable of fungus growth by removal of heavy metals, such as chlorella, taking certain minerals not conducive to fungus growth such as borax remedy, where 1/4 teaspoon (in woman's dose) 1/8 teaspoon of borax in 1 liter of drinking water will usually discourage fungus growth usually quite effectively.

However, the basics of discouraging fungus growth will always be at least 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda, in 1/2 glass of water taken twice a day for about 5 days out of a week. Some improvement should be noted on the second week as the body becomes more properly alkalized. I would like to check for some mineral status, to see if the copper portion, from hair mineral analysis is low or not, as copper discourages fungus growth.

Magnesium supplements, such as 250 mg of magnesium citrate may help the breathing by reduction of calcification of the tissue too, along with alkalizing remedies such as baking soda mentioned, but if the 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda plus 1/4 teaspoon of citric acid in 1/2 glass of water taken twice a day may help. Fungus tend to grow better in environments high in sugar, no fishes are eaten, oily foods, rarely drinks cocoa for example.

The purple tongue might also be circulation problems, which were caused by difficulty of breathing in the first place. Hence, slow deep breathing exercises, baking soda and citric acid, may help with the circulation and reduce the purple tongue, but NOT black tongue. Although I suspect it might contribute to the conditions too. Vitamin E 400 i.u. and some aspirin should also help with circulation problems thus reducing the darkness of the tongue.

Anti-oxidant Vs. Oxygen

09/04/2007: Jody from Colorado: Hello;I have been eating alkaline foods and making sure(using pH paper) that I keep my body in an alkaline state. I drink distilled water with baking soda and some fresh lime juice added. I recently bought H202 in 8% food grade and plan to dilute and drink this as well. My question is this: Why take ANTIoxidants and then take something to oxygenate my body? I feel that I have gotten confused somewhere and cannot move forward without and undertanding of this process. Any help you can give me to clarify this is greatly appreciated. Thank you. Jody

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Dear Jody: Yes it is one of those FAQs that need to be answer. I can best give a good example with an illustration.

A car needs gasoline to run its engine. For the gasoline to burn it needs oxygen. But oxygen also causes rust (oxidation) in the engine which is why paint is used on the exterior of the engine and certain metals which prevents rusting such as stainless steel is used so the engine can run relatively rust free.

The motor oil also protects the rust from forming by forming a thin oil so the the metals don't react with the oxygen and the water vapor from the atmosphere.

In effect, the engine needs oxygen to burn fuel and at the same time needs certain antioxidant to prevent rusting so that the engine can burn without the problems of rust. Thus reducing the wear and tear.

In the same way that cells needs oxygen to work, but the antioxidant is what protects the cells from damage. Hopefully, this might clear some confusion.

04/16/2009: Nichole from Monroe, OH replies: Dear Lori,

I was reading your post and saw that you suffer from hypothyroidism, I wanted to share with you that I too suffered from this my whole life, but no more. I have been taking Iodine, along with a list of other supplements. You can find this list at TheIodineProject.com as well as my story and many others on how we naturally reversed our hypo and hyper thyroidism with the use of Iodine.

01/26/2010: Sachin from Delhi, Delhi, India replies: Ted, thats a wonderful analogy. Explains it very clearly in simple words!

Sinus Infection Question

08/22/2007: Lori from Huntsville, AL: Hi Ted, I have a severe sinus infection from either a cold or other allergy. It has moved from my head to my chest. I coughed so much yesterday my ribs now hurt. I am taking the following Presription & OTC Remedies; Thyrolar 2grain (for severe hypothyroidism); Excedrin (1 Tablet 1 or 2 times daily as aspirin with caffiene); Percogesic (2 tablets 1 or 2 times day for pain in ribs); Mucinex 400mg (2 Tablets every 8 hours) to keep congestion broken up. I am also taking the following homeopathic remedies; Lime Juice, Baking Soda, Asorbic Acid, along with 4 drops Deionized Iodine (for Thyroid) 1 time daily (in the morning on an empty stomach); ACV w/honey (2 times daily); Turmeric 720mg (2 tablets 1 time daily); Zinc 25mg (2 tablets 1 time daily); Potassium 100mg (1 time daily); Magnesium Orate 500mg (2 tablets 1 time daily with Potassium & Zinc); Selenium 100mcg (1 tablet 1 time daily for Thyroid); also taking 1 capsule Organic Bovine Adrenal for Adrenal's support due to Hypothyroidism. I am still suffering from the congestion and coughing, so last night I decided to try the Inhaling Hydrogen Peroxide. I emptied a Saline Spray Bottle and filled it with 3% Peroxide (no additives) and used it. The first spray caused my nose to burn, my eyes to water and I started sneezing. I blew my nose and clear mucous came out. I continued to inhale 3 or 4 more times, each time it burned severly. About 7 hours later I tried it again, still severe burning in nose. I awoke this morning with the right side of my nostril bleeding (it has since stopped). I have not tried to use the Peroxide again. Do I need to dilute the 3% Peroxide to stop the burning, or what other treatments would you recommend I try? Thank you, Lori

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Dear Lori:

The single most common mistakes of people using Hydrogen peroxide to deal with sinus infection is to use a 3% solution which is A SERIOUS MISTAKE THAT could result in nose bleeding. The concentration is way too high and must be diluted with water.

Also some small amount of salt is also needed to be added, where the taste should equal to normal salinity of the mucus so a rough estimate is about between 1%-3% at , which happens is close to sea water concentration also.

There are two ways of use, the use as a nose drop or the use as an inhalant. Inhalant is breathed through the mouth but as a nose drop the general requirements are different. Even if used as a humidifier or whatever, the preferred concentration should stand at 1% while as a nose drop it should never exceed 0.5%.

As to the H2O2 concentration, even when I used a dog mange I make sure the solution is NEVER exceeds 1% solution. In case of a sinus infection where the peroxide solution is used the concentration is always 0.5% never 3%!!! It is six times my maximum dose!

To prepare a 0.5% solution, where the bottle 3% H2O2 is about 30 cc, the math is to know how much water is added is :

Where C1 is Beginning Concentration 3% H2O2 or .03 Where Amt1 is Beginning cc (milliliter) 30 cc Where C2 is the desired concentration 0.5% or .005

We plug into the equation:

'((C1*Amt1)/C2) - Amt1 = Amount of Water to add

((.03*30)/.005) - 30 = 150 cc

To check wether this formula is correct or not:

A 150 cc water plus original solution of H2O2 had 29.1 cc of water ((100%-3%) of 30 cc = 29.1 of water) So the amount of water is 150 29.1 = 179.1 cc Pure H2O2 has about .03*30 = 0.9 cc of 100% H2O2.

Therefore the ending concentration expressed as % is 0.9 cc/(179.1 cc) x 100 = .50%, which is close enough!

Some have refuted me on the above formulas, that it is incorrect, but it checks out anyway.

I would therefore assume that the small bottle are 30 cc's or milliliter, but in case there are other measurements the formula mentioned here still applies. That 150 cc of water is needed to be added to the 3% H2O2 30 cc concentration to get the final 180 cc of 0.5% H2O2 concentration.

1.5% H2O2 will lead to skin inflammation the dividing zone although I suspect skin inflammation starts whenever H2O2 concentration exceeds 1.4% to be even more precise. However a rough estimates of using H2O2 is 1.5% and above is where H2O2 concentration is too high, would generally be sufficient for most purposes.

Therefore the maximum concentration for external use is calculated to be 1%, while a maximum concentration for internal use is 0.5% limit. At this concentration the problem should not exist from such use. Hospitals used 3% for external application and not for internal one, so their use is somewhat too strong in my opinion since I used half that for external purposes at 1.5% concentration.

As to general sinus problems, a vitamin C of 1000 to 1500 mg x 3 times a day taken for a month, plus twice a week vitamin A, and D should reduce the sinus problem within a month. Zinc and magnesium were also found to be supportive.

However, if the sinus condition is severe, I have found BHT supplements to be useful and that required anywhere between only one single dose or three dose (or 3 days at one dose per day) needed to stop the sinus problem, where common dose is estimated to be between 250 to 500 mg. per dose per day.

Store It in the Refrigerator?

07/27/2007: Barry from Aurora, CO: Never heard of storing in refrigerator before, read many many sites, McCabe does NOT mention either, Mr. Moderator Ted, whadyathink?"

[1/1/2007: CG from Globe, AZ writes, "I wonder if people are aware that the hydrogen peroxide cures involve 35% FOOD GRADE, H202. It must be kept in the refrigerator and is mixed with distilled water by the drop. It cures a multitude of ailments! All information about its effectiveness can be found online with any search engine."]

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: I don't store the 35% H2O2 in a refrigerator and generally store them in a dark cool place that is out of reach for general purpose. H2O2 is relatively stable in a cool dark place, but I don't close the bottle too tight, mine is in a plastic bottle to allow the gas to escape, but it is never too tight. The reason why this is done is to PREVENT accidental ingestion of H2O2. A less concentrated one such as drops are o.k., but not for any amount of H2O2 exceeding 0.5%.

The ones that I put for use always has a different color and also placed relatively out of reach and the concentration is always 3% or less.

To put in the refrigerator would mean accidents can happen and it is best to prevent them by putting it in a place that is out of reach for people including myself.

Since H2O2 have a limited shelf life to about 2-3 year (often longer), I will generally discard if I know that the solution is weak whenever reacted with a used, but cleaned toothbrush. That's how I know when to discard an H2O2 if kept too long.

Accidental Ingestion

06/29/2007: PR from Maldives: Two nights ago, I woke up very thirsty. I walked into the bathroom, without turning on the light, and picked up the bottle of hydrogen peroxide instead of the bottle of water that I normally keep there. I took a large amount before I realized something was wrong. I immediately turned the lights on and drank water. Then I went to the kitchen and found some plain yoghert to eat. Later I vomitted and started feeling better. However, it is the second day and I am not feeling well. I feel a lot of pressure around my eyes, and generally feel weak. Any suggestions about what I have done, and what I should do?

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: After having vomited and feeling better, but some pains were left, most of those can be helped with taking some 500 mg vitamin C sodium ascorbate two times a day to restore the body's antioxidant levels since the peroxide is an oxidant. Another supplement that is helpful is vitamin B complex (100 mg each for most B's except for B12 and folic acid) and magnesium supplements (250 mg which will restore neural pain sensation and pressure. Green tea (no sugar, no fructose and no milk) is a diuretic which should further reduce some pressure being felt around the head and eyes.
05/11/2011: Mrskimnwaz from Phoenix, Az replies: I have two questions. How much peroxide did you drink, and did you turn out alright after the accidental ingestion?

Concern About Warnings on Bottle

06/06/2007: Lisa : Dear Ted: I am new to this website, so maybe you have covered this already. My concern is that I have always been told that hydrogen peroxide is poisonous. The bottle from the grocery store says Do Not Swallow . Yet I've been reading some of the remedies like inhaling it, Drinking it etc. Could you please explain this to me. Also what exactly is it suppose to do as far as changes in the body chemistry for improvement.

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Lisa: Generally, the hydrogen peroxide used generally is a food grade kind, which many people purchases from the internet. Some buy them in technical, laboratory grade, USP grade, BP grade, all of which are free from stabilizers. Those are the kinds that is best. The object of labelling warnings is to prevent direct accidental ingestion of the product, which is poisonous whether there is or there is no stabilizer. My actual use is dilution below 1% for external use, but hospitals use much higher concentrations such as 3% for external use. However for internal use, it is generally free of stabilizers and concentration are often below 0.5% being the maximum. But actual internal use are only a couple of drops of 3% H2O2 in a glass of water. In event of emergency due to sickness, or food poisoning, or other more serious conditions a 3% H2O2 added in a couple of drops is used in forums for detoxification or other issues and they do use the grocery store kind, when it is not possible to obtain one. The toxicity of the product is determined by concentration of any product. If they are low enough the toxicity is low as well as taking them on a temporary basis. My preference has always been to use those peroxide which have no stabilizers and I prefer not to buy the grocery or drug store brand, unless they clearly labeled as being food grade. Labellings are legal protection to prevent the companies from being sued in event of careless used by the purchaser.

Dog Bathing Options

05/31/2007: T from Arkansas: I was wondering if you could tell me the messerments of this remedy for precautionary measures, before my dog has pups. Also how often would you recommend me to give the female this preventive bath. I would also like to know what to use to clean the whelping box with that would not be harmful to the pups, but would keep the mites from them. Thank you for your time.

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: You can use one bottle of 500 cc 3% H2O2 and dilute them 2 bottles of the same size with water. This would get you roughly 1% solution. When you add a full tablespoon of borax to solution approximately a saturated solution. The problem appears to be that it is safer to get this solution and wipe on the whelping box and wait until dry before use. The tiny residue of borax will continue the kill and should prevent future mites of eggs from showing up, at least from the place at which you apply it. Often the mites eggs can exist all over the place if the dogs tend to wander around a lot. However, when you take a borax and peroxide bath on the larger dogs, without the rinsing regardless of where the dog wanders, the mites eggs get killed in whichever place the dog happens to stay or sleep. The formula is not a perfect one, but can be modified by adding an a 2%-5% tannic acid, however, tannic acid do not work together well with a hydrogen peroxide solution as tannic acid breaks down or degrade, but it does work well together with the saturated borax solution for specialized used on premises that needs to disinfect mites eggs and mites in general from reinfection, which is actually a bigger issue than killing the mites directly because this is how mites survive. Borax are generally safe for mammals but they are quite toxic for insects. If you use any towels or cloth in whelping box, make sure that when you laundry them to at least soak them in a bleach, or a more environmental friendly bleach which is either sodium percarbonate or sodium perborate, if they ever have it for sale! The sodium peroborate breaks down into hydrogen and borax, which kills the mites just the same. Or you can soak them in the standard 1% hydrogen peroxide in borax for a couple of hours before actual laundry so the mite eggs have no chance to survive. The solution of tannic acid, borax or hydrogen peroxide is definitely safer than most insecticides for one major reason: insecticides are pseudoestrogens and can harm badly the pups, even if they use an anti-mite dog collar it is still an insectide soaked into the plastic collars.
07/14/2011: Christopher from Boca Raton, Florida Usa replies: This is a safe remedy that works within a few applications... Just be sure to break the entire life cycle of the pest. Our black lab had very bad mites on tail, cured within 10 days. Will alter color of dark haired dogs, ours turned partly brown -peroxide bleached. The vets alternative was a high dose of expensive off label use drugs with possible serious side effects. We have shared our experience and helped rid many animals of mites safely... Dogs, cats, rabbits, etc. Another excellent idea is cedar oil it causes the fleas, mites, bedbugs... Etc to close their breathing holes and suffocate themselves. Well worth the cost. Remember to treat as large an area as you can or the pests will return as their lifecycle can be very long.


Nebulizer Use Ratio?

04/02/2007: Mona from Ionia, Iowa: Can anyone tell me if you could put the peroxide in a nebulizer and at what ratio. Could I combine it with DMSO?

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: A maximum safe concentration for internal purposes generally used a 0.5% concentration, that includes for aerosols, nebulizers, humidifiers or in drinking water. In event H2O2 is combined with DMSO, DMSO is instantly changed to MSM (methylsulfonylmethane). Therefore you won't have any DMSO, just MSM. The differences between an MSM and DMSO is one extra oxygen, which apparently the hydrogen peroxide provides. Therefore I wouldn't combine them with DMSO, unless I wanted some MSM.

Oxidizers Vs. Antioxidants?

04/02/2007: John from Vegas, Nevada: I find a conflict with the suggestion that oxides such as peroxide are healing when most sources say anti oxidants such as red raspberry seeds are great for good health?

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Oxides are not a peroxide. Most oxides in practice refer to metal oxides. Antioxidants protect the cells from damage. Peroxides kill the bacteria which prevents healing. If bacteria is not killed first, no antioxidants will help with the healing, simply that the bacteria are living off the healthy cells and become parasitic.

10 Volumes Is 3% Concentration?

04/01/2007: Pete from Quezon City, Philippines: I live in the philippines and there are two concentrations of hydrogen peroxide that's available in drugstores here. one is 10 volumes and the other is 20 volumes. my question is: is 10 volumes equivalent to 3% that you have there in the states? or is it 10%?

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: A 3% solution is a ten volume strength, since decomposition of one volume releases ten volumes of oxygen. Ten volume is equivalent to 3% H2O2.

Oral and Skin Use Questions

03/22/2007: Johan : I wash my face with Cetaphil brand face wash and then apply hydrogen peroxide to my face morning at night. Is this a good way? After rinsing with hydrogen peroxide as a mouthwash, do we leave it in our mouth, or do we rinse it out? I do it after brushing morning and night.

And now last question: you wrote both of these on earth clinic, and I am confused whether we can mix acv with h2o2. which one is it? and does acv help people in athletics, i run track and field. i know h202 would help me (oxygenate my blood), but it seems if i can mix it with acv i would be getting both benefits?

1: I find use of acv alone is not effective. I add one teaspoon of H2O2 3% plus 1 tablespoon of vinegar plus a large pinch of baking soda (reactions becomes sodium acetate) I get better results. Apparently your body also needs some buffer to get rid of colds. I further modified using humic acid.

2: 2/8/2007: 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 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. Ted

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Dear Johan: It is best to rinse with water after the use of hydrogen peroxide 1% as a mouthwash. If there is no rinse, in some cases it may create irritations in the mouth. Yes, always do hydrogen peroxide mouthwash after brushing. The toothbrush gets out the larger food particles, while the tiny food particles and some film are rid of best with a hydrogen peroxide.

Don't worry about information conflicts, it depends on application, not the formulas. For colds and viruses, peroxide is preferred. For biochemical imbalances then antioxidation is best. For athletic preparations, oxygenation and bicarbonates is better before a competition, while antioxidants and bicarbonates tend to work better during recovery.

Nebulizer and Denture Use

03/19/2007: Donna from Fairview, Utah: Could food grade hydrogen peroxide be used in a nebulizer and if so, what would be the proper dilution? Also, do you know what the dilution would be for a hydrogen peroxide denture soak? Thank you for all the great information. We appreciate you.

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Dear Donna: As a nebulizer I used 0.5 to 1% concentration being the standard. It is my experience that anytime it is over 1.5% it causes skin problems, such as dryness.

If I were also to use it as a mouthwash, the standard is still 1%. Exceptions exist if you were to use this as a denture wash soak, since peroxide degrades rather rapidly in presence of metal.

However, I would prefer to use a standard 3% solution. It is very important that if you use a toothbrush, that it will not reinfect and a toothbrush should be cleaned with a 3% hydrogen peroxide weekly. Bacteria tends to accumulate on the toothbrush and most people are not aware of it.

You can tell how dense a bacteria is by just looking at the foam coming out whether it is used as a mouthwash, a toothpaste or a denture soak. However, regular denture soak using a peroxide alone don't work that well, if it is not brushed to get the filmy plaque out. It merely kills them, but not necessarily the all the filmy plaque.

This is why i think brushing the dentures, outside in a sink is a more practical means of cleaning. To get some abrasiveness, I think a 3% hydrogen peroxide with thick paste of baking soda should generally work better.

Easy to Overdue with Inhaler?

03/14/2007: Patricia from Covington, Kentucky: I love this site, like a lot of other people I was searching for natural cures and treatments, so glad i found this site. I just started drinking ACV and Baking Soda. Just started 4 days ago, no noticable changes yet, but i'm sure there will be. I want to do the H2O2 also. Can I use it in a Nebulizer? also ACV. Maybe 1 day ACV next day H2O2.Can i overdo if I drink it plus inhale it? I have Allergies ( not food )and sinus issues also chronic Bronc. Thanks again for this site.God Bless. Patricia

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Yes. I think a 0.5% to 1% concentration H2O2 is a reasonable one.

You can use ACV in nebulizers alone also. YOu can switch between H2O2 one day and ACV the next.

Can i overdo if I drink it plus inhale it?

Not really since inhaling would merely kill the bugs in the lungs and reduce the bacterial/viral/fungus load off the body.

I have Allergies (not food )and sinus issues also chronic Bronch.

Allergies have several remedies. Alkalinity is one of them. The other is a fungus issue. Borax 1/8 teaspoon per liter of water may help this. Sodium molybdenum 20 mg may help allergies relating to sulfites. Heavy metals is a big issue. If the drinking water is contaminated with this, an easy way to find out is drinkin bottled mineral spring water (preferably glass bottles) for at least a week and see how you fare. Test kits are a lot more expensive and they don't give you all the answers since chemical toxins in drinking water may also trigger it.

Eating chinese parsley (coriander) as a salad or something added to soups may help reduce the heavy metal loads reducing the allergies, which may be a very mild form autoimmunity disorders.

If your allergies are a seasonal thing where it happens more often during the winter or lacking of sun, then vitamin D3 between 2000 i.u./day to 10,000 i.u./day should show improvement.


03/08/2007: Leesa from Dhaka, Bangladesh: This is not a cure that I had but rather a question about the use of Hydrogen Peroxide for my 10 month old baby. She was born by Cesarean, at eight months at a weight of 4Ibs and 8oz. Since birth she is always ill with colds, flu, congestion. She has had constant ear infections as soon as she gets a cold which is nearly all the time. I believe it is probably allergic because she never took to breast milk and has been on formula. She has been on antibiotic treatment all her small baby life and doctors predict she may get asthma later on. I have been trying some sort of treatment with Hydrogen Peroxide as I have read Ed McCabes magnificent book on Oxygen therapies. I have sprayed it in her nose which temporarily bubbles out all the gunk. I have 3% HP at home and have used it by putting drops in her ear recently. But the infection, who's symptoms are continuous mucuosy discharge, continues to come back. I have been told that so much HP in the babies ear will dry it out too much but I am desperate and anything is better than yet another dose of antibiotics which I believe is worse. Please do note that HP 3% solution in a child's ear helps take away earache immediately!! Believe me nothing is worse than seeing your baby cry in agony with the pain of earache knowing there is nothing that medicine can do to relieve it. I just need a protocol that is definitely going to cure my baby of her problem. Bill Munro mentions that inhaling greatly helps with breathing. I can't get baby to inhale obviously so how else can I use the HP so it can go directly in her lungs. Her lungs are permanently congested and her nose is always stuffy. Please someone advise this desperate mother Thank you

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Leesa:

Please do note that HP 3% solution in a child's ear helps take away earache immediately!!

Yes, it does. But in the long run the immune system needs to be raised also. Getting the baby on mother's milk will raise the immune system, if it is all possible to do that. However, a mother should supplement with at least 2000 i.u. of vitamin D so that the baby can have sufficient amount of vitamin D through breast milk. If it is all possible the baby can raise the immune system if there is some sun exposure to the baby's skin at least 15-30 minutes 3 times a day at being a reasonable exposure. 1/8 teaspoon of baking soda per liter of milk formula or 1/16 teaspoon of baking soda per 1/2 liter milk formula might help increase some alkalinity to increase the immune system. Eucalyptus oil applied to the cloth so that the baby can breathe can help clear the breathing passages. Since hydrogen peroxide is hard to apply for inhalation, ozonating the room is for 15 minutes where the baby sleeps is one alternative. The ozone is easier to manage than the use of hydrogen peroxide.

I hope this helps.


02/11/2007: Kit from Lafayette, US: I am a registered nurse and holistic health practitioner. I am responding out of concern for Bill's inhalation and ingestion of hydrogen peroxide instructions. Hydrogen peroxide is toxic to all living organisms with the exception of two anaerobic bacteria. It is of utmost importance that readers understand this prior to utilizing this method of cure. It is certainly true that people using this approach may feel better, but the cost to long term health may well not be worth the short term positive effect. A sinus wash done daily weekly or monthly along with the cayenne pepper treatment will be just as, if not more, effective without long term damage to one's nasal passage and sinuses. Please post this brief word of caution to your readers. I do not state that I doubt the efficacy, but question whether the risk outweighs the benefits.

Earth Clinic replies: From what we understand, Hydrogen Peroxide stays in the body for a maximum of 2 hours. Given its short life span, we highly doubt there are long term effects.
Bill Munro replies: I have been doing the hydrogen peroxide inhalation method at 3% every day for 12 years now and expect to live to be at least 100 years old. I turn 83 in March. Enough said.
Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: The issue is concentration level of H202 and not the use of peroxide, black and white. Spring water and snow contain high concentrations of both ozone and hydrogen peroxide. Some spring water can have these levels as high as 0.25% concentration. It exists in nature and it is how nature and your white blood cells use to digest anaerobic bacteria. Eucalyptus oils can also degrade to hydrogen peroxide. You can destroy nasal passage with either too much hydrogen peroxide or even cayenne peppers. Too much of anything is not good for you and you can kill yourself just drinking water, or even just eating salt. The body's defense mechanism to kill invading bacteria, and even interferon cancer cure uses white blood cells ability to generate hydrogen peroxide needed to kill. Red blood cells make use of peroxide by carrying to the area where there is anaerobes and kill them by oxidation. Hydrogen peroxide at low concentration and the use of ozone is most effective in relieving conditions of fungus caused sinus problems.

Okay to Repeat Remedy?

01/29/2007: Nikki from Fergus Falls, USA: Hydrogen Peroxide: I had been miserable for a week. Sore throat, unproductive but painful cough, fatigue, aches, chills and my temp was constantly below 97.1. Strep test was negative. I seem to get mono this time every year, yes mono. We just got back from Costa Rica 8 days ago and I was fine until that final 16 hours traveling by air or in airports.. I knew this was coming,,then home to 10 below 0. I called the local clinic and asked if there were any confirmed flu cases in town., Negative. Mono then. NOthing over the counter works for mono, Just a recliner and a down comforter & send the kids away! I tried Ted's 12 drops 3 peroxide 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda and 4 oz of water over 2 hours time. I woke up a different person. I still have a little cough but I don't feel awful today. Last year it took me 3 months to get over this. NOTE TO TED.. would it be okay to repeat remedy until I am completely recovered. Is there another way to contact Ted about Candida in young children, we desperately need a quick fix for our very sick little one, thanks.

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Dear Nikki: You can repeat the remedy until you recover. It would also help a lot if you consider taking some zinc supplements, especially 25 mg. every other day at least. Take some sodium ascorbate too, but at different times, where the dose is about 1000 mg/day. Do not clash the remedy with peroxide, but do that at least 3 hours away from the peroxide therapy. If you can't find ascorbate, then ascorbic acid in water with baking soda until the fizz goes away will do it nicely.

A low body temperature indicates the inability for the body to raise its body temperature to defend the microbes. Some iodine foot painting might help. There are other remedies, but the simplest way is to raise the room temperature to about 100 degree fahrenheit, if possible! If not, then consider a hot bath for several hours, not too hot, 100 degree Fahrenheit would suffice. Indians do it for the entire night in hot sauna bath. This is an ancient way to cure many conditions, and the medical practice call this hyperthermia. Most microbes cannot survive at about 103 degree fahrenheit, but in practice 100 degree fahrenheit is usually sufficient.

Long distance airplane flying is often to blame, not exotic countries in itself, otherwise the entire Costa Rica will have people with mono running around. Basically the airplane, lowers the body's immune system, by creating free radical positive charges since these planes acquire positive static charges from the clouds which are quite often anywhere from 100,000 volts to 400,000 volts and severe amperes. It can really put the body's immune system into suppression.

Therefore, you can even fly yourself to Los Angeles to New York and get mono too. The issue is that the plane lowers the body's immune system as well as causing blood clots from excessive positive charges. You can test yourself and look at your blood live in a microscope before and during traveling. It only takes 1 hour for your blood the completely change once you are up in the air. It clots! This is why some people have heart attacks and other people call it deep vein thrombosis or economy class syndrome.

The simple remedy not to get disease during long distance flying is to take 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda plus 2000 mg of vitamin C before, during and after the trip. The negative ORP (Oxidation Reduction Potential) of a chemical of vitamin C is strongly negative in an alkaline solution of baking soda, which will counteract quite easily the positive charges of static electricity caused by the plane as it flies high in the clouds. As a result, you won't have jet lag, recover a lot faster from long distance flying, possibly protect yourself against heart attack, and best of all, you won't catch diseases as easily during long distance flying. This is also one reason why food always tasted so bad in an airplane. It has nothing to do with bad food, the body acquires too much positive charges that the food tastes bad. It is the same with pregnant mothers who can't eat. A simple remedy for pregnant mothers is the same, vitamin C with baking soda. It will neutralize excess positive charge as the baby grows and sends excess positive charge wastes and that would neutralize them too.

Zinc is also quite supportive and should be taken at least once before a trip. Zinc acetate is my favorite, and it is about 50 mg. should I fly. But the last time I flown was more than a decade ago.


01/23/2007: CMSR from Amsterdam, Netherlands: I really want to believe hydrogen peroxide (HP) is the miracle substance and the only reason why it hasn't been accepted by conventional medicine is due to the blocking powers and economic interests of pharmaceuticals and other industrial lobbies that would have no interest whatsoever in finding a cheap, easily available and non-patentable treatment to all sorts of medical conditions, and not because its principle of action may be flawed and its sides effects potentially serious.

I have been educating myself by reading scientific papers on oxidation processes and therapies (with HP or Ozone) and their effect on the human body. The reports from individual experiences were so positive and some of the defenders so hyped and excited about it that I really though we had found something truly remarkable. On top, the underlying principle seemed almost flawless at first: anaerobic virus and bacteria oxygen = death of bacteria and virus by oxidation. Conversely: aerobic human cells oxygen = thriving environment for the cells and improvement of the immune system and health in general resulting in delayed aging.

In fact, and as far as I understand it, it's a bit more complex than that. The HP that reaches the blood stream through oral or IV intake, changes in the presence of certain enzymes such as catalase. In the presence of this enzyme HP (H2O2) will break down into two molecules: one molecule of water (H2O) and a single atom of oxygen (singlet). The singlet, being a single atom, has an erratic and instable behaviour in the body, and will try to bind to anything it finds in its way, not only virus and bacteria. Hence the name free radical. When they try to bind with available compounds and molecules such as lipids, proteins and heavy metals they degenerate them by oxidation. These new compounds may also agglutinate with other molecules and continue the oxidation/degenerative process within the body. This is the reason why the body needs to take antioxidants (such as vit A, C, E, Selenium etc) to neutralise the effects of free radicals that result in degeneration and death of the cells and slowly lead to the development of diseases and aging.

Oxygen is necessary for life, but eventually we die due to the effects of oxygen by-products: basically we 'rust' away.

Some facts: it has been shown scientifically that intense physical exercise, such at that practised by competition athletes leads to the exponential creation of free radicals in the body, due to the high intake of oxygen through intense breathing. In fact it has been shown statisically that the longevity of intense sports athletes is shorter than that of the average individual not practicing intense physical exercise.

Yet, we all know that we feel re-energised and generally healthier when exercising, although the immediate feeling of energy results partially from an 'oxygen high'. There are a lot of positive effects in the body resulting from exercise/increased intake of oxygen, but one needs to realise that the sub-products of oxidative therapies are harmful to the body. So the secret is to take the right amount of oxygen and the right amount of anti-oxidants(generally the higher the better) to neutralise the effects of the free radicals.

As an example that the human body is in a delicate balance that should not be disturbed, and that the secret to prevent diseases is to respect that balance and take the optimal amount of supplements, take for instance thermal waters, some of the most famous thermal waters where people go to bathe ontain radioactive properties in it and yet it seems to be in the right measure, since it benefit the body rather than kill it. The same with HP and ozone therapies, they might actually be the holly grail of medical therapies and yet we need to know exactly what quantity to take either orally or IV in order to avoid oxidation effects and premature aging. It is unclear whether that balance has been found, since the side effects might not be felt immediately after intake of HP but only mid/long term. On the other hand, fighting and curing a serious disease definitely changes one's priorities, and in that situation maximum longevity might be less of a concern when compared with regaining health. But for those in generally good health, there is no reason why we should take substances that can potentially be counterproductive in the prevention of disease and in the fight against aging.

I hope that people that decide to take HP and other oxygen therapies do it based on a educated choice after having researched and pondered the pros and cons. That said, I use HP as much as possible topically and would seriously consider taking it orally or IV once more information and research is available regarding its side effects. CMSR.

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Firstly, hydrogen peroxide does not extend longevity like a fountain of youth. What it does is it offers the body a secondary immune system when the body is overwhelmed with viruses, bacteria and fungus that the body's present immune system is unable to fight off.

Once these numbers are lowered enough, then quite often our immune system starts from there. A virus multiplies very rapidly, like a flu viruses and reaches saturated number within hours. I can tell when I have a fever, took about 10 drops or more of hydrogen peroxide 3% (average dose for most is 6 drops), and my fever is reduced and comes back again within about almost 2 hours. The effect of the killing the viruses or the peroxide stays in the blood for about 50 minutes before the effect wears off. To make a continuous killing so that the body does not get overwhelmed with viral multiplation and allow the body to find an appropriate antibodies to fight against them will take a little time, but the fastest I see may be only a day. Often the frequency of intake should be around every one hour. I can't be exact, since I do so many experiments if I have the cold. Hydrogen peroxide alone is not enough.

The body consumes an awful lot of bicarbonates necessary to neutralize the virus by alkalization, which in my own estimates is about 4 teaspoon a day during with a maximum flu or cold symptoms, but this breaks down to something like 2 teaspoon two times a day, or about than 1 teaspoon 4 times a day. Zinc is also an important element with immune system. The white blood cells and the body's ability to kill these viruses uses several mechanisms. It uses hydrogen peroxide to digest them, it uses nitric oxide also (from sodium ascorbate vitamin C, or sodium nitrite from food sources under the tongue), and finally it uses zinc to produce more white blood cells to defend.

The red blood cells basically carries the hydrogen peroxide, taken orally, to the part of the body that is needed the most to kill the foreign pathogens. So you can extend your life by offering the body an immune system and prevent you from dying, but not an anti aging medicine. You won't die of diseases, due to immune system. A simple way to know that peroxide actually goes to the blood is simple. There is a medical tests that look for the amount of oxygen carried by the blood. It rises up within half an hour sometimes longer upon taking them. The other is woman's menstruation. Those who took peroxide during menstruation reported bright red color of their blood instead of black or brown color, indicating more oxygen is carried by the blood. So the argument on whether peroxide is absorbed or not is easy to determine, reduction in fever, bright red blood on menstruation, or just oxygen percentage by doctors based on blood tests, which is usually higher than average to 100% of oxygen carried by the blood.

Finally, peroxide is also good, through the actions of free radical to neutralize chemical toxins that accumulated in the liver throughout the life. The demonstration was quite dramatic as I have seen where they bubble ozone into a colored chemical toxins present in the meat product, completely destroying them within a minute. Therefore both ozones and peroxide are also good in detoxification.

I once had a 10 year acne. No medicine and supplements I tried work, so I quit. One day I was experimenting with hydrogen peroxide and my friend commented, that my acne was disappearing. Then I found out that the reason was chemical toxins. Peroxide cleared up my acne within a month, but I was so happy with it I continued that for a whole year. Overdoing a little bit, but I just wanted to know how much more improvement I can get. However a month or two for most should be just fine.

I can therefore conclude that hydrogen peroxide is supportive of one's immune system, and the average dose is 6 drops per glass per dose for most people, and in virus problem, peroxide is not the only element needed.

Mother nature has used several mechanisms to protect the body, not only peroxide, but also, zinc, bicarbonates(alkalization) and even nitric oxide. Nitric oxide can be derived from nutrition such as amino acids, L-glutamine, L-argninine, or it can simply be available from vitamin C sodium ascorbate.

In cases of pneumonia, peroxide is not much helpful and other more suitable therapies would likely to be breathing ozone. It could save your life in such event. Holistic medicine is always like that, no single element revolves around a universe. They are all synergistic and you need to consider several things necessary for any recovery. While it is not a longevity medicine it does support the immune system and quite helpful when you are sick.

Braces and H2O2?

01/07/2007: Sandy : Is it ok to use hydrogen peroxide while wearing braces?

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Never use hydrogen peroxide with braces. Hydrogen peroxide attacks braces and becomes very unstable. Hydrogen peroxide degrades at accelerate pace with a lot of gases formed in presence of braces. It will make the problem for you much worse. If you don't want to take the braces off, DO NOT USE HYDROGEN PEROXIDE solution.
11/28/2011: Bri from Roseburg, Oregon, Us replies: I have ceramic braces with a metal wire. I don't want to use the H202 for mouthwash until after the braces, however could I still ingest 3 drops of 35% fghp in my water 2ce a day?

Can I Mix It in Lemon Water?

11/13/2006: Daniel : I want to know whether it's ok to mix lemon water with a few drops of h202 (35% grade). The lemon makes the water alkaline and I have a problem with dehydration (all the time) so I want to keep drinking lemon water as this helps with this. Daniel

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Dear Daniel: No. You cannot mix lemon water with a few drops of H202 35% grade. Lemon is an antioxidant water and rich with antioxidant vitamin C. What antioxidant does to the body is allows the body's internal organs to recover from excessive oxidation. Once the body is strong enough, the taking oxidants of hydrogen peroxide would merely kill the bugs and detox the poisons in your body.

What I would prefer you do, and there are many ways to do it, is to go ahead and take the lemon plus baking soda enough so that the fizz stops and add the water. Assuming you take this before bedtime (preferably) and you can take the hydrogen peroxide alone in the afternoon. Often the afternoon hours is best because that is when your immune systems are down and/or pathogens are strong. Making your immune systems strong during that time is a practically difficult since your body is wearing out near the end of the day. Therefore take a couple of drops, such as 3 drops of 35% H2O2 between 12.00 p.m - 2.00 p.m. would be best strategically preemptive because the body's system will be burnout between 1.00 p.m - 4.00 p.m. Giving a second immune system of H2O2 should carry the day through without getting unnecessarily sick from bugs.

Will It Increase Free Radicals?

11/05/2006: Dan from Springville, Utah: With so much talk about the importance of anti-oxidants such as Vitamin C, green tea, or even negative ORP liquids, in our diets, how can it be beneficial to ingest a shot free radicals in the form of Hydrogen Peroxide on a regular basis? Aren't our bodies subjected to excessive free radicals already, without adding to oxidation by means of a substance like Hydrogen Peroxide? Help me understand how to reconcile this apparent paradox

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: You have to understand that hydrogen peroxide is a a little known antidote to poisons and toxic chemicals and has antiviral and antibacterial properties, besides the fact that it is also a free radical. Unfortunately, free radical and the science of aging is not due to free radical oxygen per se. The science of aging was not based on free radical oxygen caused by hydrogen peroxide, it was based on a well known chemistry topic called the Fenton reaction, first theorized by Dr. Denham Harman in the 1950s which involved free radical iron, creating the free radical hydroxyl compound as opposed to free radical oxygen.

In fact, there are several kinds of free radicals, most of which are much more toxic to the cells than just the free radical oxygen, such as free radical hydroxyl compounds (causes aging), free radical free fatty acids (causes diabetes), and nitric oxide free radical (causes baldness and sterility).

Many of these are hundreds of times more dangerous than free radicals oxygen. Also our body has a way to protect itself anyway and in fact natural spring water is rich in hydrogen peroxide. Even the sacred healing water at Lourdes is rich in hydrogen peroxide. Your white blood cells digest harmful bacteria and viruses using by synthesizing hydrogen peroxide. Using hydrogen peroxide is the best ways of killing the anaerobic bacteria and viruses.

In fact our blood cells and body utilizes hydrogen peroxide by carrying them to the site that needs to kill the pathogen. Hydrogen peroxide in low levels is known to neutralized toxic insecticides, chemical poisons, and even snake's poisonous venom.

I have seen an underground video demonstration of neutralization of chemical toxin found in vegetables and meats just by bubbling ozones to neutralized them completely in minutes. Ozones and hydrogen peroxide are common antiseptic and natures way to neutralizing toxic chemicals in the environment.

So yes, hydrogen peroxide is a free radical, but our body have a way to deal with this by the action of gluthathione.

But on the other hand, poisons such as snakes venom, while it is NOT a free radical, can kill you in minutes, if you don't neutralized them with a weak solution hydrogen peroxide. Or how about your liver, which accumulates insecticides and other harmful chemicals over the course of your lifetime, this can be detoxed by hydrogen peroxide. Our body cannot get rid of this, just read up on anatomy and physiology 101.

If you worry so much about aging, like I do, I would worry more about the Fenton reaction where accumulation of free radical heavy metals constantly create free hydroxyl radicals for the rest of your life, while hydrogen peroxide is present in your body not more than 50 minutes, enough to neutralize and kill the virus or bacteria.

For me I would check for urinary heavy metals, this is the real free radicals. So far all my friends are tested positive for urinary free radical heavy metals, in fact it is safe to say that at least where I live, about 90% of the people I know have free radical heavy metals. Despite my health consciousness, I tested with positive heavy metals in my urine and I guess, chelation would be a lifetime event for me because most of my food is tested positive for heavy metals, creating a virtual free radical inside your body. This is what I would worry about.

H2O2 Labeling

10/24/2006: Janette from Victoria, British Columbia: I am writing to ask why my bottle of Hydrogen Peroxide USP 3%Solution/10 Volume is labeled "poison" and states "CONTENTS HARMFUL Do not swallow. Do not get in eyes or clothing....if swallowed call a poison control center or physician immediately. If in eyes, rinse well with water. If on clothes, remove them. If breathed in, move person into fresh air." I have been reading your site's testimonials and the few "nays" that are sent in, and nowhere is the issue of product warnings by manufacturers addressed. It kind of scares me to just ignore product warnings and take HP anyway as many responders seem to be doing. Is this situation just aCanadian thing? Ie gov't prohibition? I look forward to hearing from you about my concerns. Thank-you so much.

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Most H2O2 3% labels are the type you buy from drug stores, they tend to add stabilizers to discourage people from using it internally. Often stabilizers is not really needed as H2O2 even in food grade are amazingly stable even without stabilizers. However, when some people do use the "drug store brands" but they do not drink this directly. They will just add only about 6 drops per glass of water whenever they have a bad cases of sickness. However I would not recommend such use.

I would much prefer to use H2O2 3% intended for mouthwash, in this case, I can use this taken internally such as 6-12 drops per glass of water. In this situation, the companies producing it will often not add the stabilizers. You can tell. Pour it in a glass, or put a couple of drops in glass of water in direct sunlight. If they did add the stabilizers you should be able to see a swirling pale yellow colors as you add this. The other thing is the H2O2 with stabilizers tend to have a drug smell, while the one that does not have it has a little of ozone smell.

If on the other hand you use for external use only, then it doesn't matter what source of H2O2 you use. In general, food companies use H2O2 food grade to sterilized food and milk products. So they might sell this to you, if you know someone who works in the industry.

I would much prefer to buy a food grade H2O2 over the internet than from drug stores. Again I think the reason why they do this is to stop people using H2O2 internally, as in adding poisons or bad tasting chemicals in ethyl alcohol when they are sold on the market.

What Is the Best Dilution?

10/14/2006: Diane from England: Ted -: I bought hydrogen peroxide solution 6% bp 20 vols. Is this the same as the 3% but double the strength and can I just dilute it to 3% or 1% by adding the correct amounts of water. I'm not sure what "20 vols" means, can you tell me. I have white blood cells in my urine and a lots of back and kidney pains, plus a sore feeling throat that doesn't look sore. What is the best amount to take and how often. I want to rid myself of any viruses I have which are causing my problems as doctors don't help. I am also using the ACV with Bicarbonate of Soda, do I need to add potassium citrate. I am also oil pulling, my mouth and teeth seem cleaner but I haven't been doing it long. Please let me know about the HP as I don't want to take too much, or too little. Thanks in anticipation Ted.

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Dear Diane:

I bought hydrogen peroxide solution 6% bp 20 vols.

This means they hydrogen peroxide if completely decomposed will generate 20 times its original volume to form oxygen. So a 1 liter hydrogen peroxide if completely decomposed will generate 20 bottles of oxygen gas. A 10 volumes often mean 3% H202, and 6% obviously means 20 volumes.

If you have white blood cells in urine, it means the kidney is eating up itself or the body's is attacking itself, like an autoimmune response. Therefore it is best to normalized the body by ridding the body of excess pathogens by taking in more zinc supplements, such as zinc acetate, or zinc chloride, or zinc gluconate, at 25-50 mg/day taken for about 2 or 3 weeks. This alone will kill the pathogens and at the same time reduce the body's immune response, thus reducing the white blood cells.

When the body's terrain is acidic, you get the body on overdrive to attack more pathogens because they tend to grow best in that condition. Therefore, for your condition a more cautious approach would be better. Just take 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda once in the morning and in the evening in 1/2 glass of warm water. Or take whole lemon freshly squeezed plus water to 1//2 glass of water and keep adding the baking soda at 1/4 teaspoon interval until the fizz is reduced. Then take it from there. This will provide sufficient citrates, bicarbonates and ascorbate necessary to reduce the immune response by increasing the oxygen levels in alkalinity condition reducing the immune stress.

Hydrogen peroxide should help reduce the pathogen buildup rather quickly and reduce the sore throat. Most people will take 3% hydrogen peroxide. If you buy a 6%, then just double the water to get 3%. Then on the 3% add 6 drops of it for drinking. Energy level and some soreness would be reduce, but again soreness have many causes, such as excess acid, lack of magnesium, etc.

You can take ACV on the third week after taking baking soda for two weeks in a row. The body should have sufficient buffer whereby the ACV and baking soda can be done later, due to excess pathogen buildup.

Yes, you should add a small amount of potassium citrate, it helps alkalize the intracellular fluids more efficiently. Just baking soda merely alkalize the acidic extracellular fluids.

One of these days, I am going to have to modify the oil pulling you have been doing. For one thing certain oils are good at drawing heavy metals, while certain oils are good at drawing pathogens. On the other hand, lecithin plus a sufficient amount of oil mixed together is great for pulling the toxins internally, so that the oil will not damage the system whenever lecithin is added in sufficient quantity. I call it internal oil pulling.

Nasal Passage Advice?

10/04/2006: Shane from Cunningham, KY: I have not tried inhaling the peroxide yet. I was reading about it and wondered about this. I have sleep apnea and have to sleep with a CPAP machine with a heated humidifier. My machine has a small container that I fill with distilled water. The heated water moisturizes the air through the hose on the CPAP machine so that my nose and throat don't get dry. I was wondering about the use of peroxide in the humidifier of my CPAP machine. Possibly mix it half and half with distilled water? I also am "hooked" on nasal sprays (ie Afrin). My nasal passages have to be opened in order to breath through the nose piece on the CPAP machine. I am trying to wean myself off of the spray by diluting it with salt water. I plan on starting to inhale the peroxide to see if it will help in that area. Any feedback on this would be appreciated.

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Dear Shane: You seem to have an obstructed nasal passage more likely. Using the peroxide distilled water might cause a drying effect of the nasal passages. The point of the peroxide inhalation is to kill the offending fungus/bacteria that lines the lungs and nasal passages. So if the nature of the obstruction is due to this, it will help.

But under conditions of excess drying of nasal passages, there might be some other cause other than the nasal passages.

Usually when a nasal passages is too dry, it is often a combination of acidic body, vitamin A deficiency (which controls mucus), possibly sodium ascorbate (alkaline vitamin C), vitamin B3, B5, and B8 inositol. I once had a dry nasal passage in unusually dry and cold weather and was greatly relieved after taking plenty of vitamin A and cod liver oil.

Your nasal problems should be helped also if you just try taking 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water twice a day for about two weeks. The alkalinity will cause the body to expand capillaries allowing for greater moisture and therefore less obstruction of the nasal passages. The dosage is somewhat conservative, so it will take a while longer. You may increase or decrease the dose depending on your conditions.

In my opinion if I want a clearer nasal passage obstruction, I would prefer putting eucalyptus oil instead to the humidifier. This usually clears the nasal passages. Of course, wetting a towel with eucalyptus and putting around the neck would be a much simpler way. For me I prefer the fumigate my room using a house plant spray filled with eucalyptus whenever I have an obstructed nasal issues. Of course, there are many ways you can do it. I also spray eucalyptus on my dog to clear its breathing problems as well.

Should your conditions improve, if your body catch colds easily this could also mean a possible zinc deficiency to zinc acetate will help, as well as selenium, and manganese.

High Dosage Still Safe?

09/24/2006: Darrel from Toronto: Day # Number of Drops Times Per Day
1 - 3 3
2 - 4 3
3 - 5 3
4 - 6 3
5 - 7 3
6 - 8 3

MAINTENANCE DOSAGE: In most situations after the above 21 day program, the amount of H202 can be tapered off gradually as follows: 25 drops once every other day for 1 week 25 drops once every third day for 2 weeks 25 drops once every fourth day for 3 weeks (1 drop=35% food grade h202)

this is what i'm doing is this safe? i'm on 8 right now.

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Dear Darrel: When you are detoxifying your body, it doesn't mean your body is detoxifying as you imagine. The food we eat constantly put the toxicity back. So you need to ozonate your foods before cooking or wash them in a weak hydrogen peroxide below 1% concentration. This should cover about everything.

8 drops 35% H2O2, might be high for many people so I would not recommend that much with the exception that you can stand it, no negative side effects and of course, you are really sick.

I prefer to do the H2O2 intermittently, but not do it too long. The body needs to cycle between high oxidation now and then and high antioxidation too. High oxidation is needed to rid of toxic chemicals that accumulates over many many years, antioxidation are also important for the body to build on.

It is a ying and yang, oxidation and antioxidation. You swing both ways, this is how our body's biological cycles work. After you detoxify, I would antioxidize for sometime too by taking:

1/4 teaspoon Vitamin C powder (ascorbic acid) plus 1/2 teaspoon Baking soda in a glass of water so the body can raise its antioxidation status too.

Everything is in moderation. The door swings both ways.

07/02/2012: Mark from Dallas, Tx. replies: Ted: Let me see if I understand you correctly. You dilute your 35% food grade hp down to 3% and then never take more than 12 drops per 6 to 8 ounces of water. Is this correct? And how many times a day do you drink this and for how long? Thanks, Mark
04/18/2013: Nicole from Lakeland, Florida replies: Hello Darrell, I know your question was posted in 2006 and I am taking a shot in the dark to see if you receive this email question, but here is my question.

Did you get to 25 drops a day? Was it safe? Are you ok now, did it work for you? I am doing the same regimen and I want to know anything that you went through before I start taking this. Any and all information is appreciated!!! You can email me at harrelson. nicole [at} yahoo (dot) com if you wish. Thanks! Nicole

Can H2O2 Really Increase O2 in Body?

09/07/2006: Densie from Hampton Bays, NY: I have been a Respiratory Therapist for 13 years. The H2O2 may be benefiting those with poor lung function but those with normal lung function should be saturating in the high 90's anyway. Normal lung function and hemaglobin supply 98-99% of the capacity of the hemaglobins ability to carry oxygen. It can not carry more then 100%. I do believe the H2O2 has benefical properties (due to my own research). However, I don't believe it is do to the increased O2 to the body. It is probably more due to the antibacterial and antiviral properties of the H2O2 that produce these desired results.

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Dear Densie: The point in oxidative therapy is to kill the bacteria, fungus, and especially neutralized chemical toxins found in the lungs. Thus reducing the pathogen load allowing the body to recover faster from an already exhausted immune system. This what the H2O2 inhalation generally does.

However, you can increase the body's oxygen medically done by injecting intravenously, which is dangerous. However, doing it by the lungs might increase it however infinitesimally small, but most will be neutralized before reaching the bloodstream by fungus, bacteria, and other debris. There is no such thing as a 100% of H2O2 being neutralized so some will enter but not in form of oxygen but H2O2 in liquid form. These are just academic argument anyway.

Most people who do get fever is not about the issue of oxygen, it is about pathogens. If the issue is indeed oxygen, then getting a tank of oxygen will be the way to go anyway.


09/07/2006: Darrel from Toronto: What is Ted from Bangkok's opinion on the hydrogen peroxide inhalation method? Thanks.

[EC: Darrel is referring to Bill Munro's method.]

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Dear Darrel: It is important to know that this method could potentially save lives, especially when people are suffering from serious complications of pneumonia and their immune system is down. People often die of pneumonia as you get older. Usually it is a result of a fungus/or other bacterial organisms making home in your lungs. The inhalation method is fast and goes directly to the nasal passages and the lungs.

It is important to realize that a virus/bacteria can enter three major areas, the nasal passages, the throat and the lungs. You might be surprised to find that I categorized the lungs separately as if it can enter directly to the lungs without having passed through the nose ore the mouth. But in reality, this is what happens, tiny microbes goes into your nasal passages without crashing into any part of the nasal cavities, going directly to the lungs and take refuge and build a nice but deadly fungal colonies.

Once the initial colonies are formed they can form in any one of the areas such as nose, throat, inner ears, and lungs. When this happens you have to take appropriate measures to find out which system works best for you.

Frequently, at least this is my experience, the viral organism frequently take refuge in the nasal passages, But with sanitized hands, and avoiding touching the nose, the virus can still enter by way of the mouth and throat when you eat food. To stop the virus bug in the mouth, is very easy just use H2O2, for example as a mouthwash and gargle. But the problems exist in killing virus in both the nasal passages and lungs.

This is where you have to consider the use of homemade weak H2O2 sinus sprayed (properly salinity concentrations). However, the problems still exists if the virus or fungus made refuge in your lungs. There is several inhalation method you can consider, fumigation, direct inhalation, and humidifier system that I am aware of. Of course I also use the skin application of H2O2 through the body also, at reasonable concentration of course.

You must consider that there are also several H2O2 hybrid systems as well, such as using H2O2 only, H2O2 plus colloidal silver, H2O2 plus vinegar, and H2O2 plus sodium carbonate. These list should cover most of the infections. I am currently experimenting with the use of food preservative to rid of fungus in the lungs from pneumonia.

In my opinion inhalation is an important one, and I suggest you try to use it as a prevention of the more deadly flu and pneumonia. However you must also need to consider the use of other systems for more effective coverage, e.g. nasal sprays, aerosols, fumigation, etc. needed to completely kill the pathogens. Ted

Dear Darrel: It is important to know that this method could potentially save lives, especially when people are suffering from serious complications of pneumonia and their immune system is down. People often die of pneumonia as you get older. Usually it is a result of a fungus/or other bacterial organisms making home in your lungs. The inhalation method is fast and goes directly to the nasal passages and the lungs.

It is important to realize that a virus/bacteria can enter three major areas, the nasal passages, the throat and the lungs. You might be surprised to find that I categorized the lungs separately as if it can enter directly to the lungs without having passed through the nose ore the mouth. But in reality, this is what happens, tiny microbes goes into your nasal passages without crashing into any part of the nasal cavities, going directly to the lungs and take refuge and build a nice but deadly fungal colonies.

Help with Breathing Problems?

09/03/2006: Douglas from Monticello, FL: My question is the h202, peroxide. I used it 10 or more years ago. Don't remember why I quit. My problem is more either lung or heart. The older I get the more difficult it is to exert myself. I was always able to outwork even twenty year olds when I was in my early fifties (I'm now 58). I have no stamina, and with exertion, I have a problem breathing correctly, and I have more and more chest discomfort. My problems started when I spent an hour or two finishing up some plumbing for our church camp while the ladies poured bleach and other cleaners on the floor and scrubbed before I got through. A couple of days later, I filled up with fluid and could barely breathe. After 7-8 years, I started the cayenne and garlic. Up until 3 years ago, I had no more problems, but now it has returned. I started back taking 21 drops of 35% in a glass of Spicy V-8. I usually follow this with at least one glass of well water, non treated by the feds. What is the major opinion concerning this method? I am still unsure about the mist with 3% due to the additives. Thanks for your input.

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Dear Douglas: Taking H2O2 in this case might not help. The body if it is due to excess bleach and chlorine buildup, taking some dechlorinator, such as sodium thiosulfate 10% added about 5 drops per glass of water should noticeably help you more. Sodium thiosulfate might be available in the local swimming pool supplier. Perhaps preparing a wet towel soaked with this 10% solution on the skin should noticeably improve the halogen buildup.

It would appear your body's Oxidation Reduction potential leans on the oxidative side due to chlorine buildup, in which case another simple remedy is to give a try is freshly squeezed whole lemon with some water added to make 1/2 glass of water.

Slowly add baking soda in intervals of 1/4 teaspoon until the fizz is minimal. The resultant solution should be a lemon that tastes like water. This solution is biologically active negative ORP of about -140 millivolts and should raise the body's ORP to a level that is considered normal and normalize the pH where urinary pH is ideally at 6.5 - 7.35. and salivary pH is between 7 - 7.49.

By the way, I would much prefer a food grade 1% H2O2 for inhalation rather than the 3% H2O2. And your conditions doesn't seem to be supportive of using H2O2, it is more like chlorine is suppressing your immune functions so raising this by taking some kelp, seaweed, pumpkin seeds, and possibly to zinc supplements such as zinc acetate is more in line with your conditions.

Food Grade or Drugstore?

09/02/2006: Darrel from Toronto: I'm a little confused with hydrogen peroxide. Which is better to dilute : 35% with water, the 3% grade or food grade. i was reading that food grade is not good and 3% has chemicals. i'm confused-- thanks.

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Darrel: You need not be confused, H2O2 food grade for all concentrations does not have chemicals. The H2O2 3% I refer to is a non-food grade you buy from drug stores and does have chemicals. So if you can get H2O2 of any concentration food grade they are all safe.

#1 Question: Hydrogen Peroxide and Free Radicals

08/22/2006: Regina from Westport, CT: After an injury, I feel aches that I did not have before. Trying hydrogen peroxide as you prescribe seems effective. I looked through some books on health that I had on hand, and found in one by Gary Null that he considers hydrogen peroxide to be a free radical, along with superoxide anion, hydrogeyn radical, singlet oxygen and hypochlorous acid. However, later in the book he uses it along with ACV to wash vegetables. Any thoughts on why he might be wrong about this being a free-radical?

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Dear Regina: First you have to recognized that we are dealing with propaganda from the pharmaceuticals. So those who are knowledgeable will misinform you against all kinds of arguments for you not to pursue alternative medicine. You are the judge. If it works, use it.

Your body has a mechanism in dealing with H2O2, by carrying the free radical oxygen to the site of the problem where it needs the most. Usually the blood will do that anyway. Usually the H2O2 will stay in your blood for about 50 minutes and is quite stable, and it goes to the site of infection, or areas that needs oxygen, then it is used up.

Most of the theories of free radicals has much to do with intracellular (inside the cell) as opposed to extracelular (outside the cell) free radical oxygen.

The mitochrondria is sensitive to free radical oxygen, true, but the free radical oxygen is generated by the mitochrondria's own respiration when oxygen breaks down to free radicals. Therefore, hydrogen peroxide from outside the cell, extracellularly, does not actually reach inside the cells as it is carried by the blood to a place where the body needs the most and is usually destroyed by bacteria or viruses which you don't want anyway.

So in fact the authorities are doing word play here. Free radicals oxygen we do need at a certain levels necessary to kill dangerous anaerobic viruses and bacteria. Since they are thousands of times smaller, they get killed first before it really have any harm to the much much larger human cells.

The free radicals that you really have to worry are ionic free heavy metals, such as iron, where scientists called the Fenton reaction, that is really responsible for the aging process. You must recognized that this free radical is actually NOT a free radical oxygen, it is a free radical hydroxyl ion, or -0H, which is far deadlier to our cells then oxygen for a very good reason: your body has no way of controlling it! The only way to rid this constant free radical hydroxyl ion is simple: chelation, or oral chelation EDTA being the cheapest, which is usually what the authorities also reject.

Your aches could be caused by two possible conditions. One could be the lack of oxygen to the area, but the second one is much more likely: the aches is caused by a nanobacteria, which creates calcium shells, and accumulate toxins responsible for the pain. Hydrogen peroxide, if you actually play around with chemistry as long as I have, does neutralize an awful lot of toxins inside your body, including chemical toxins in the liver as well as snake's venom, into a less toxic form of chemicals. In my opinion, it is the second reason, that is why your felt better. This is not the kind of information you find in the internet since, right now, everyone is copying everyone's else information. They are simply not doing original research, experiments or observations.

So there is no information easy to find out there that is really useful for you unless you can separate real information from propaganda information. I have been doing this for so long, that I have no problem separating this, but quite often, most people have a real problem with this. In fact your question is the most Frequently Asked Question here at Earthclinic.

Distilled or Tap Water?

08/13/2006: Bob from Parsonsburg, MD: I have a question. I keep reading that hp should be taken with distilled water on an empty stomach. However, I also read that farm animals prosper very well when hp is added to their drinking water. Do they take it in distilled water on an empty stomach? I doubt it. Is it possible that the method of ingestion is not that critical? Thank you.

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Dear Bob: When I take my hydrogen peroxide I take it on ordinary water, not distilled water. Some people like to take it on distilled water, but I believe that ordinary water is better since distilled water lacks bicarbonates and buffers, which are necessary since in alkaline water tends to absorb oxygen better then distilled water.

If you don't believe me try this experiment. Measure a pH meter on distilled water and leave it out for a couple of hours. The pH will drop from pH 7 to about pH 5. Distilled water tends to absorb CO2 but not oxygen and therefore it is not desirable if your goals are to increase your body's oxygen levels.

In my own personal use, I often add H2O2 to to a glass water with baking soda to help alkalized my body along with the H2O2 if I think I am coming down with the cold. This is the best way to increase the body's oxygen levels, thereby killing anaerobic bacteria and viruses by oxidation.

08/11/2011: Karen from Edmonton , Alberta replies: I have read that the chlorine in tap will change the H2O2 into basically water and this is the reason for the distilled. Do you have any thoughts on this. I have checked with my water supplier and chlorine is added to the water.
09/10/2011: Doddie from Lawrenceville, Georgia, Usa replies: When Ted is referring to taking the H202 with ordinary water is he referring to tap water here ? Please give me your feedback as soon as possible because I am getting ready to start taking the H202. Thank you Doddie

How Does It Help the Liver?

07/02/2006: Mia : How does hydrogen peroxide before meals help the liver?

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Hydrogen peroxide oxidizes chemicals and other toxins which tend to accumulate in the liver. You can tell the effect after taking a week with improved liver status and clearer skin. It makes liver be able to process foods more efficiently without excess toxins build up that the body has difficulty removing.

Free Radical Damage?

06/20/2006: Sanford from Yucca Valley, CA: I heard that drinking peroxide creates dramatic free radical damage to tissues. Is this true?

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Yes it does, but apparently our body's red blood cells tend make use of it to carry the H2O2 free radicals to a location where it needs the most: bacteria and viruses. The H2O2 is in your blood stream for about 45-55 minutes, which I sometimes use to take in frequent interval to control my flu fever. I must admit it works and I do get better, from it and sometimes it just stop colds and flu many times dead in its track. In fact your white blood cells creates H2O2 also needed to digest the bacteria and viruses. This is why H2O2 is used whenever you come down with a sickness or you are a little weak due to the bugs. Oxygen you breathe also creates free radicals, but your body has a mechanism to control oxygen free radicals.

The most dangerous free radicals are in fact not oxygen free radicals, it is the hydroxyl free radicals created by iron and heavy metals. Those are many times more dangerous since your body has no mechanism to deal with it. If you so worry about H2O2, then a good alternative is clove oil (which can be very hot) and proper use of it you can use this. This is because clove oil is a powerful antioxidants yet it kills bacteria and viruses also. HOWEVER, H2O2 also DETOXIFIES YOUR SYSTEM of chemical poisons, which clove oil does not. This is why H2O2 is a preferred method of removing unwanted chemicals and toxins by oxidation. I only use H2O2 when I feel it is needed, such as detox or killing of pathogens. I don't use everyday, like sodium bicarbonate or other therapies.

Add ACV to H2O2 and Water?

06/15/2006: Perechenco : Does anyone know if I can safely combine ACV and h202 in water? Or will they form a new substance? Thanks, I like both, so I'm hoping I can just make a big bottle in the morning and sip it all day.

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: Yes you can combine ACV with H2O2. However you are limit to only a couple of drops (not over 6 or 7 drops) of 3% H2O2 per glass of water. As to ACV, you can put a a reasonable amount of ACV that you think is best for you. Some people can take a tablespoon in a glass of water of ACV, some can even drink up to one cup of ACV, but this is your choice. I sometimes use just plain vinegar mix with h2o2 to help with sore throat, however certain pathogens will not respond within 10-15 minutes, that means you have to try a more alkaline approach such as a potassium carbonate (1/8 teaspoon) of mouthwash.

Interaction with Iron in Water?

06/05/2006: Claudette from Bonnyville, Alberta, Canada: wanted to learn more - very informative - we have well water and I found out that the iron in well water makes adding peroxide counterproductive. So I stopped using in baths and to my plants - would like to know more about this.

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: It makes it worse as iron produces free radicals and peroxide also. But it is not counterproductive, since the real source of the problem is the iron.

Adding iron to the water will prevent iron from engaging in destructive behavior. Iron produces a free radical hydroxyl ions, while peroxide just produces a free radical oxygen ions. They are different. You need to use reverse osmosis water filter for any use, while adding the minerals on your own from other sources, such as humic or fulvic acids. Magnesium and calcium deficiency could be a problem when you use reverse osmosis water, so you have to get the plants and you magnesium added. Sometimes drinking a strong tea reduces iron's destructiveness, as tannic acid will prevent your body and plants of course from absorbing the unneeded iron.

One of the worst free radicals is in fact iron, but the other one that people don't know it is copper. You need to also check whether the well water is high in copper too. If either ones are high, then the chances are quite high from heart diseases and other diseases. Taking l-carnosine will reduce toxicity of copper. The easiest way to reduce whatever iron buildup you have is two ways, donate your blood and or take disodium EDTA (or magnesium EDTA) to remove the metals. But you will still need to take the mineral supplements alternative weekly with regular chelation.

Effective Against Bird Flu?

04/01/2006: John K. from UK: Bird flu. I am investigating decontamination of FFP3 masks and the mask / face interface. my friend who is a lab rat suggested H2O2 as a suitable fluid. I then read about the use of H2O2 in the ears to prevent ingestion of the human flu virus and wondered if the same approach could be made for the mouth and nose. Later I found reference to a nasal swab that killed off virus entering the nose. So I am very interested in any info on the use of H2O2 for decontamination of H5N1 masks. Now if H2O2 will kill H5N1 on surfaces, I am wondering if it would be safe to actually breathe into the lungs, via the mouth and nose. From what is on your website it appears that people already do this, without any reported adverse effects. So I am wondering if you know of any medical evidence that may be relevant ?. Great site! Thanks very much.

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: H2O2 might work, but a more suitable fluid might be vinegar and H2O2 mixed together. It all depends on the concentration of it. A 3% H2O2 with a 5% vinegar mixed together will get concentration of each by 1/2 when mixed in equal portions. Another possibility is the 3%H2O2 plus citric acid (10%), which is less volatile. Breathing 3% H2O2 hardly effects the breathing. However, if you use this as a humidifier or try to create small vapors out this, you will have problems, partly because a 3% might be too strong, so a 1 1/2% H2O2 concentration only might be a safer concentration. I use pure acetic acid put in the cup in a room to kill off the bacteria and harmful viruses, although this will smell pretty bad. I also sometimes spray a 3% H2O2 to disinfect my room which is a safer alternative than using them as a mask. One alternative is a 5% citric acid plus H2O2 3% to the sprayer to create a monopercitric acid which is a more powerful disinfectant than peracetci acid because they don't evaporate. If you are dealing with non-virus, but a strep type of bacteria or those that are resistant to acids a H2O2 potassium carbonate might be a better choice. It all depends on whether viruses we are dealing with can survive under acid or alkaline. Generally most anaerobes do not survive in alkaline, but they do survive under acidic conditions. Therefore an alkaline form of H2O2 is more ideal for bird flu. The exception to this might be SARS, which have a tendency to survive well in slightly alkaline solutions, of which a simple vitamin C ascorbic acid would do well. It is strange why the scientific literature is unusually silent on whether a bird flu virus are acid or alkaline resistant. When in doubt add sea salt, and EDTA, which under this mix will kill any viruses whether they be acid OR alkaline, thus reducing your mistakes of hit or miss.
12/01/2010: Tim from Fraser, Mi replies: I have recently brought a bottle of the food grade 35% hydrogen dioxide I was wonder what kind of formula can I put together to battle Herpes type II? Do you also think that it's a good idea to have ozone therapy while on Hp?
