Here is an idea for anyone wanting to take H202, but who finds that the X-hours-after-food and y-hours-before-food restrictions make it too hard. If (like me) you have to get up in the night, prepare a dose in advance and drink it then. I thought it might prevent me from going back to sleep, but happily it didn't.
I have started again a "treatment" with hydrogen peroxide 35% Food grade because of a right shoulder unbearable pain (arthritis) and I have already feeling better, and guess what I do not even taking in gas I have read. In the morning, I drink a glass from a 1l 1/2 bottle of osmosis water and I am o.k. For me, it is like drinking water. In the bottle I pour only maximum 20 small drops because my dripping thing I'd thin and that's all I do. I feel other benefits as well, stomach ease, breath ease, light head, etc.
I mention that I have my first meal one hour later after I drunk it. If you want to take it 3 times a day, for safety, I will eat three hours later. I do not inhale anything yet to cure my sinuses expecting a cure in time due to the regular taking in as written above. It is efficient, inexpensive and not stressful. Now, for my sisters's tendonitis and arthritis and cholesterol and heart, I encourage her to start this and I am sure she will be healthy again, that much trust I put in the peroxide.
We all suffer of oxygen depletion. I have observed mountain people who live in more oxygenised environment, big difference! I hope that who will read this will get the necessary courage to start healing soul and body. Thanks God for the good nature full of natural remedies and for inspiring true loving people to become more and more knowledgeable of the treasure the nature offers to the mankind and how to benefiit from it. Nutrition and faith, both are important. We have to change our life style, simplicity of life reduces stress, passions and bring peace and wellbeing. How wonderful is to feel good, to be good, of good cheer, to help, to encourage, to love, expecting noting in return, but happy people around.
My diabetes was out of control, A1C was 13 two months ago, which means my glucose was 300 or higher. I started using the food grade hydrogen peroxide, still using insulin, now I'm getting glucose readings of 100 to 160. Can't wait to see my doc's reaction after next A1C! I do not know if I will reveal my secret.

Hi I'm Bern,
Help me please!!! It's difficult to buy 35% FG here in the UK now as I guess it maybe in many other countries. So I've bought 12% FG. My question is can this be diluted 3:1 to produce 3% FG and be used as if was a reduced 35% solution? All the written material refers to using 35% to achieve 3% strengths which leads me to ask is the purity in 35% greater than in other strengths? Which begs the question if you can buy 3% FG why can that not be used?
I'm hoping it's just to save money and make the product go further but my 12% stays where it is 'till I find some answers...your help would be appreciated!
P.S. I'm aware of the problem with stabilisers ..are they more prevalent in lower grades?

I just recently purchased food grade hydrogen peroxide. I wanted to see if my mother could also start the hydrogen peroxide therapy (using the humidifier) as well but my mother has two microchip planted in her breast & I read somewhere if you have foreign parts in your body you're not a good candidate for the hydrogen peroxide.
I have been taking 17% h202 for the last couple days. I notice that no one talks about anything less than 35%. Can anyone give me info about how much I should be using and how long before seeing benefits? I seem to be more alert and energized. I have lower back issues and stress induced pain, so I need to do something that releases toxins. Thank you so much.

I am going to say only one thing to all..I have been drinking a 500 ml bottle of water infused with 12 drops of h2o2 35% every day for over 5 years. I am not dead, sick or have any weird symptoms what so ever..however I feel unbelievable and what's more..so far I am convinced that it cures or prevents or just blocks only one thing for sure..don't get me wrong I am fairly confident what it does in other areas but only convinced of one.. break through for sure
I've used food grade hydrogen peroxide for years.
To get 3% mix 1 part 35% to 11 parts distilled water. If you use 1 ounce of 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide, you must add 11 ounces of distilled water to make a 3% solution.
I was almost crippled after a car accident, I had sciatica nerve damage and a 'charlie horse' that would grip the right side of my back several times a day. I could not raise my head up and walking was slow and painful. Ol' dummy doc gave me opiates for nearly 2 years. He said I'd be in a wheel chair in a few years. I started researching and took hydrogen peroxide therapy. Within 2 months I had eliminated 90% of the pain, I could raise my head and walk normally, eventually the sciatica healed and I spray 3% solution into my lungs and inhale every day with a fine mist bottle.
I have never been sick since. Doctors don't know anything but drug dealing. I am now pain free.

I'm fairly new to studying and using food grade hydrogen peroxide. I mainly use diet, homeopathy - etc.
I'm following the gradual increase of drops and my gums are getting very inflamed and sore. I stopped for a few days and it went away. I'm again on day three at 14 drops and it is happening again. Everything I have read says it should be helping gums/gum infections/inflammation --- I am thinking it could be a healing crisis but want to double check with someone who has more knowledge /experience on it. It's disturbing enough I nearly do want to stop.....but am enjoying other benefits so I don't want to stop too quickly and uninformed. Thanks.
I've been using the 12% food grade h2o2 with the following protocol, tomorrow I start 66 drops 3 times a day.
1st day, use 9 drops
2nd day, use 12 drops
3rd day, use 15 drops
4th day, use 18 drops
5th day, use 21 drops
6th day, use 24 drops
7th day, use 27 drops
8th day, use 30 drops
9th day, use 36 drops
10th day, use 42 drops
11th day, use 48 drops
12th day, use 54 drops
13th day, use 60 drops
14th day, use 66 drops
15th day, use 72 drops
16th day, use 75 drops
So far so good, I was a bit scared at first before I tried, but after reading a lot about food grade h2o2 and it's benefits I had to give it a try, the things I have noticed are increased energy, for example I walk up a steep hill once or twice a week and am usually out of breath by the time I reach the top, but since taking h2o2 I've been walking up the same hill and when I reach the top I just want to keep going, with the increased energy my body feels stronger.
Some other things I've noticed are increased lung capacity, breathing is clearer. When I wake up I'm awake, usually it takes me 30 minutes to not feel groggy in the morning time, I've been sleeping better, 30 minutes after I drink food grade h202 my thought process become clearer and I'm extremely alert. I feel more confident within myself.
I've had no issues so far concerning side effects.

I bought some 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide but still scared to try it. I have shortness of breath and if it works would be wonderful, but I don't know whether to take it orally (1 oz to 11 oz) and drink it or put it in a small inhaler bottle and inhale it or now I have seen where they make it in capsules which I would prefer and love if it works as good, please someone give me some good advice, I am such a scary cat, I need some advice please!

I have been told that hydrogen peroxide had a carcenogen in it unless you get food grade. Does anyone have documentation one way ot the other?
A free ebook, The Truth About 35% Foodgrade Hydrogen Peroxide by James Paul Roguski, has some great information. I've been on this protocol for awhile with good results. I have many problems, from fibromyalgia to rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, just to name a few. I take no prescription medications now and all my blood tests show improvements every 3 months. I also use organic apple cider vinegar with baking soda, oil pulling with coconut or olive oil, eat lots of healthy foods, very limited sugar, flour or processed foods, lots of herbs and spices, some supplements. I have gotten lots of good info from this site and incorporated many things that have helped me tremendously. My health is much improved now that I'm completely off all the medication. Nature heals, BigPharma kills. Wish I'd known better looooong ago. Oxygenating my body and balanced pH does make a tremendous difference in my overall health.
Are there any bad side effects to the defibulator device or the internal wiring in the heart? Can you premix fghp & water in a 16 oz plastic water bottle to be used at a later time?
Is it necessary that when using the peroxide for internal use that it be distilled water. Some sites specific to while others don't.
Hello, I need some help. This past Sunday I started the Hydrogen Peroxide therapy. I started off with 4 drops of 8% Food grade H202 on an 8oz cup. Took it twice on Sunday. On Monday, I increased it to 5 drops. But then I noticed that my legs were getting swollen (edema). Other than the legs, I felt fine. Maybe, a little hyper.... The reason I was taking the H202 is because I think I might have a yeast infection. About a year ago, I got circumcised because of it but I feel that it's still on body. Once in awhile I would still get a discharge. In addition, my adrenals and/or thryroid seem to be extremely tired. I am on a sort of candida diet, no carbs or sugars. With this diet, I feel a lot better. Before that, my balance (hormones??) would fluctuate easily, sometimes feeling extremely fatigue and other times with hot flashes, cool feet, muscle aches, joint aches. Maybe, I took too much H202? Why would I get swollen legs after taking it? Your help is appreciate it...

I bought a bottle of the 35% hydrogen peroxide from a place in Michigan. I mixed 11 OZ, of distilled water with 1 OZ of 35% peroxide. Did I mix this correctly? After a couple of days, my throat feel raw or very sore. What would cause this if I mixed it correctly? I an stopping this for a while. I was using Bill Monroe method staight of of the 3% peroxide you purhchase at Kroger drug dept and it seem to be better. It says on the battle that is has purified water with it. And it is only about 79 Cent. Bill if you read this let me know. Thanks

I have some 35% H2O2 which I got from a small organic farm [Can't remember what they used it for]. I have been unable to get the brand or type so was wondering. Is it likely to be food grade? If not just, how bad is it to ingest is non food grade?
What would be in non food grade?
What is worse - the additive/s or the ailment/s.?
BTW some years ago  in the Congo, I used 40% directly on a leg melanoma [Right leg inside calf] applying with an ear bud as many times a day as I could [between 4 - 10]. Normally this burns and stings and the skin goes white for a few hours, but strangely the skin around the melanoma didnt whiten and after a few weeks the 'scab' fell off. It left 2 roots one above and one below indicating it had metased. These roots led to areas above and below the Mel where a few months befre I noticed blotchy red areas size of an oranage where blood poisoning from a septic ankle would was being arrested.
I`ve had blood poisoning before [Africa you know] on this leg and always the blood poisoning was a thin single line up to my groin, that why I knew something was odd.
I have had no further problems there. Thank You God.
I am also using my 35% directly on an outbreak of moles and warts after the 1st time a whole bunch fell off. I have had 3 session 1 - 2 weeks aprt and more have come off.

62 year old male in mostly good health, I am undergoing this protocol for general health and some minor complaints (occasional flu, incontinence, tinnitus, sore muscles, mild arthritis in guitar fret hand, recent hair loss and alarming decline in energy level). I have been taking FGHP for three weeks. At the ten day mark I was up to 13 drops of 35% FGHP in 7 oz. of distilled water 3x daily, my energy level fell off a cliff and has not rebounded. I've plugged along and am up to 24 drops. Headaches, louder tinnitus and headaches and slight loss of balance have accompanied my fatigue. Anyone have a similar experience?
Hi, I've purchased the 35% food grade Hydrogen Peroxide. I'm only taking one drop in 8 ozs of water per day for three days and I find it makes me constipated and stomach irritability. I take this glass one hour before I have breakfast in the morning. I tried this about two weeks ago with one drop the first day then two drops the second day then three, on the fourth day I had severe anxiety and light headiness and also some stomach irritability. Am I too sensitive for even one drop per day or is my body so full of toxins? I have severe allergy problems or candida in my right sinus passage for the last 7 to 10 years. Any info would be great ...Thanks

Aloe Vera Juice instead of Distilled water for Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy
Can I use aloe vera juice to dilute food grade hydroge peroxide instead of distilled water or tap water with baking soda instead? I know lemon water is not recommended b/c it neutralizes the effect.
Ten Mile, Tn Usa
I have 2 problems. The 1st is, each time I use 3% food grade 2 clean my face my eyes get irritated even tho I don't let it come in contact with my eyes. The second is, I have been ingesting food grade HP since Dec 25th as prescribed in an ebook but none of my several health probs have been cured yet. My energy increased a few days into the treatment but later reduced til now. My teeth, eyes, ears etc still have probs till now. Do I have to take it for three months before noticing the 1st cure?
Hydrogen Peroxide 35% Food Grade - Lung Concerns
I have been taking 35% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide the last 6 months. I started approx mid July 2010. My dose was between 2-5 drops once a day in 200ml of water. I always took in the morning, one hour before food consumption. All of a sudden I have become ill 2 weeks ago, flu type symptoms, dry cough, phlem and mucus build up and this now seems to have infected my lungs. A friend of mine had the same symptoms and she came over to see me and I became sick the next day. The dr has told me I have dullness in my left middle lung and may have a number of issues with my lung. I am wondering if the peroxide has done this. I would appreciate any comments please...

Can someone please give me advice on a couple of things regarding 35% h202.
1.)When you dilute it to use for gargling, spraying on your body etc. Is there a special type of spray plastic bottle this diluted solution should be stored in and does this solution also need to be put in the freezer or can it be stored under bathroom sink???
2.) Could you also confirm for me the exact ratio to make this diluted for body use solution.

I live in the US and the shipping for 35%food grade peroxide is ridiculous, over 40.00 because of regulations here... I called sproutmaster because they are recommended by a contributor on this site - and they referred me to Rebekah's Pure Living. Rebekah's dilutes their 35% food grade to one half making it 17 1/2 strength. My question is, will this be ok to take internally? I intend to take it for the body detoxification program. Thank you

I was wondering if doing the inhalation method AND taking FGHP internally mixed with water is too much all at once, or does it provide added benefit?
I have read a lot of material in a very short time, and wonder if it's OK to take FGHP with something other than water. The taste is something I'm not sure I'll get used to. I was thinking maybe the taste is too strong because I'm doing both methods daily. Can someone please provide feedback?

H202 therapy: Can dosages be pre-mixed (i.e., 1 gallon at a time) w/o losing it's strength and taken as needed?
Can I get a flu shot while using food grade hydrogen? I've had brain surgery for a meningioma. Do you have any suggestions for me? I've had problems and too many antibiotics (plus Dexamethasone) resulting in yeast infections, messed up pH, immune problems, etc.
I use 35% H2O2 in a dropper bottle for dosage in water. It is quite common that a few weeks after filling, the rubber on the bulb gets sticky, distorted and falls apart. Is this common? Is there a "special" dropper I should be using? Thanks!! Jeff

Hi, can anyone tell me if they have successfully cured or at least greatly controlled their depression by using FGHP alone? Thanks, Russ
Hi Ted and EC crew,
I always have phlegm and am constantly clearing my throat so the 35% FGHP therapy would definitely benefit me. I think it would also cure my upper thigh bone pain problem (due to squatting). I am 20 years old.
So before purchasing FGHP, I would like to ask is it OK for me to use this therapy since I have a few amalgam fillings(about 4 or 5 hehe) in my mouth? Also, can I dilute it with reverse osmosis water instead of distilled water? Another thing is, how long does FGHP last?
Thank you and looking forward to your reply. God bless!

I am new to this and kind of confused about taking Hydrogen Peroxide.
1. When you are talking about putting the drops in your glass of water is it the straight 35% food grade or the diluted 3% H2O2? If you use the 35% by drops in your drinking water why dilute it to 3%?
2. We have well water, do I have to use distilled water to mix with and drink?
3. Is it okay to mix it with more water then 8 ozs at a time? I drink a lot of water and was wondering if I could mix it in the bottles I take to work. If so, how much can I put in a liter bottle with ice, and is ice ok to use?
4. Can I drink it throughout the day as I sip my water or is it better to drink all at once in a smaller glass?
As you can tell I have a lot of questions and am very excited to start using this.
I love this site and very happy I stumbed onto it. Thank you very much for putting this information out there for us.
i have been making my own 3% from 35% for five years. i take orally 10 to 15 drops as the severity of my cold, i feel dictates. Empty stomach is a must. Do not try otherwise.
i wonder if anyone ever made restrictions/comments for child use? i have a friend w/ 5yr old who has nagging nose drip, etc, partially w/ allergy. i want to know if anyone read about age restriction and quantity. thanks.
I have a question here regarding using Hydrogen Peroxide food grade 35%. I have got this product from a health food drug store, and I want to give it to my mom who is 73 years old, and she is suffering from arthritis on her both knees. I would appreciate if someone give me a direction how to use Hydrogen Peroxide.I know I should start it slowly by giving her 1 drop a day twice. Does she need to take it on empty stomach or not? what will be the side effects?

Hydrogen Peroxide dilution
I've been hearing so many great things about H2O2 that I decided to buy a bottle of food grade peroxide. My question is how to dilute it. It's a 4oz. bottle. On the back of the bottle it states "contains 12% aqueous solution of food grade hydrogen peroxide". I know you can't post brand names but the company looks to be o-w & company and it's in a red and white bottle. I have one more question. After diluting it can I put it in a water jug "clearly marked of course"? Thanks to anybody who takes the time to answer my questions.
My wife and I have been using the food grade h2o2 for 3 days now and feel an amazing amount of energy. You can tell that it is doing it's job of cleaning up the mess inside. The correct way to dilute it is: 1 oz 35% h2o2 mixed with 11 oz distilled or other pure water (not tap).
Start with 1 drop of this new mixture (3%) 3x a day and move up a drop every day until you hit 25 drops. Then you can begin to taper down when you feel or see results. We started right at the middle mark though (we're just crazy) and wouldn't recommend others do that, but we're feeling great already and look forward to better health. I would also recommend to take a few days off of it every month.
Hi my name is Dan,48yrs old. I have been taking the Hydrogen Peroxide Food Grade (HPFG) 35% for acouple of weeks now. I'am up to 16 drops 3 times aday. I've been using water distilled its been hard because of the taste. I reed in a book I have that I could use Milk, so from this point on I've been using milk and it has really help me drink it. But at around 19 drops I caught a COLD started out as a sore throat and went into my chest. I don't understand how I got this because the HPFG is suppose to kill viruses and everything else specially at 19 drops 3times a day. Any answers on why I got sick at this point in the therapy. I've been health all winter long.

35% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide
I drink a glass of either combination; 4 oz of Aloe Vera juice, fruit juice 2oz or Distilled water 4oz and 2-3 oz of fruit juice and add various amounts of 35% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide..I use a dropper so it's about 20-40 drops depending on ?
Lately i have been using about 40 drops every morning and sometimes take my vitamin regime with the liquid ( alfa lupoic acid, vit D, Vit E, salmon oils, multi vitamins, acai chews, vit c chewable, B "50", Glucosamine& Chondroitin. Then eating later about 11am or noon
Is this a good thing?
If I was to get pregnant would this be a good thing to continue?
I am very prone to yeast infection so this is when I started this 35% h020 drinking.
Side effects of oral H202
I have been taking my daily dosage of food grade H202 for the past couple weeks with good success. The only hiccup I had was a herx reaction on the 3rd day that went away within a couple of days. I usually take my H202 around 11 am, since by this time my breakfast has been digested very well. I made the mistake this past weekend of eating a HUGE lunch, I mean the gut busting, miserable feeling, jeans popping kind. I waited the usual 3-4 hours and took my dosage. BIG mistake. Within an hour I got nauseated and queasy. By 1am that night I had sharp stomach pains and symptoms that basically replicated a stomach virus (this is what happened with my first herx reaction). I believe this was because I still had food in my stomach from my lunch and the peroxide was reacting to it. So be warned...make sure you have an empty stomach before your dosage. I should have waited at least 6 hours after that big of a meal. It is not fun :( But all in all I am having a good response to the H202 in general. Just respect it.
I started the H202 orally as of 12/12/2009. I use 3% diluted food grade and distilled water. I have systemic candida so I started at the absolute lowest dosage of 1 drop 1X daily. I have increased it by 1 drop each day. As of this morning I have an upset stomach, achy body, fatigue and low grade fever. My stomach is what bothers me the most. It feels like someone is stabbing me in the stomach. I know all about the herx reaction and I planned on it but not so quickly! I've only gone to 3 drops 1x daily! My question is this...is there something I could be doing to speed up the process. I don't want to quit because of all the health benefits. Do I need to decrease it or keep going and maybe it will rectify itself? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Hydrogen Peroxide food grade
Does use of H2O2 internally create harmful free radicals? I read this on a website that this is true if taken for general, long term health. They stated it ought to be used for cancer and other immediate serioius conditions.
Does EC or anyone know "How do we convert (formula) 35% HP Food Grade Hyrogen Peroxide to the 1-3% suggested for internal drop usage? I would like to mix 1oz or 2oz. of the 35% but I'm not sure how much water to add to make it the 3% ?
With Gratitude JP
I am trying to find out if it is known to be totally safe for a pregnant woman to soak in the baths with 35% hydrogen peroxide? Please email me any information you may have on the subject. Thanks.
Does H2O2 Increase Thirst? I just started taking drops of 35% Food Grade Peroxide diluted to 3% in water. I am taking 6 drops 3 times per day, on day 4. I noticed on day two that I woke up with cotton mouth and have been extremely thirsty ever since. Nothing seems to quench my thirst. Is this normal while taking H2O2? I have never had this problem...in fact, I used to have to force 8, 8-oz glasses of water down my throat every day, now since being on the H2O2 I am drinking 12-14 glasses of water and still feel like I have cotton mouth. Please let me know if this is normal? Thanks!
Storage of H2O2 35% Food Grade (Caution)
The following information comes from a commercial company but I think is useful for all of us:
"In recent weeks I've been having conversations with a fascinating man in the mid west... Mr. Grotz has dedicated the last 25 years of his life to, as he puts it "spreading the good word about hydrogen peroxide".
But not without a lot of personal experimentation and research, first... Here are a few tidbits from our conversation that I thought no one who is dealing with or handling hydrogen peroxide should be without, and I hope you'll find them useful.
1. Never store 35% Food Grade H2O2 in soda bottles or other containers that can be mistaken for water or drinks. In the 2 cases of death by drinking pure 35% H2O2 that came up in our discussion, both occurred when storage containers were in the home food refrigerator or freezer and were NOT MARKED AS 35% FGH2O2.
2. If you ever DO ingest, or are in the presence of someone who ingests 35% FoodGradeH2O2, DO NOT LET THEM LIE DOWN. Make the person remain sitting upright or standing NO MATTER WHAT. This is because the peroxide will bubble up and release gas from the stomach. If the person lies down, they will suffocate. In both the cases of death mentioned above this is exactly what happened. This is most likely because the pain caused in the stomach is strong enough to cause the person to want to lie down and curl into a ball.
3. If you remain upright, then you will feel awful, and your stomach will hurt a lot. but you will live and have no long term ill effects.
How is it that Mr. Grotz would know this information and know it is trust- worthy, you ask? Let me tell you. It turns out that Mr. Grotz has not only read over 10,000 medical papers on the uses of hydrogen peroxide, he also took matters very much into his own hands in this instance.
Believe it or not, he actually tested this theory on himself. He drank some 35% FGH2O2. Not a lot, but some. By remaining upright he survived the experience, with only a temporarily strongly upset stomach and not other ill effects. Personally, I would strongly advise against this form of testing, myself!
More recently, a woman called him when someone in her household drank 35% FGH2O2. She was in a panic. He gave the instructions to make sure the person remained upright. The woman called back the next day to thank him. She had followed his instructions, and the "victim" had survived drinking 35% Food Grade H2O2.
While these instances of people accidentally drinking pure 35% Food Grade H2O2 are rare, it is certainly worth knowing what to do in the event that it happens. The best way to avoid this kind of crisis is to keep all pure 35% Food Grade H2O2 well labeled, in containers with child proof caps (must be either squeezed or pressed down while turning to open).
It is recommended to keep 35% FGH2O2 in the freezer; but if you have young children you should seriously consider a locking freezer unit that is NOT the home food freezer.
It should be noted that in all the incidents I know of, the persons who actually drank the 35% hydrogen peroxide were over the age of 16. They were not children who could not read. That is because hydrogen peroxide looks just like water. In the freezer it will not freeze, so perhaps it could be mistaken for vodka or some strong form of alcohol.
In any event, drinking pure 35% hydrogen peroxide CAN kill a person; and is always at the very least an extremely uncomfortable experience. So store it safely, locked in a commercial freezer and well labeled to avoid potential danger to everyone.
It's true that hydrogen peroxide breaks down safely to water and oxygen, and isin that sense and in very weak dilutions is completely non toxic. However, strong solutions of hydrogen peroxide are caustic oxydizers. Having the right information makes all the difference."
