I have been using the 35% food grade for many things, drinking water, although I only seem to get 2 glasses a day in, brushing my teeth with it and baking soda, mixing it with acv and applying it to raised skin spots on my face and also for skin tags on my neck. I also spray up my nose before bed and add a couple drops to the water in my cpap machine. I have only been using it about 10 days.

My question is this, I am leaving for Florida on vacation in a couple of weeks and am wondering if it is safe to pack the 35% in a little blue dropper bottle in my suitcase for the flight? I don't know how the air pressure on an airplane might affect it. Please let me know as soon as possible. I don't want to be without it for 3 weeks.

I would call the airline. It may be banned, especially in that concentration. H202 has been used in bomb making, and they could potentially have dogs sniffing that stuff out at airports (just speculating on that point; I really don't know). If it's banned, I wouldn't chance the ensuing hassle you'd get in these high-security times. Call the airline for the definitive answer.

I am still trying to find out how I can keep taking my 35 0/0 drops in water while traveling. I am flying to Florida and will be gone 3 weeks. Do I need to start decreasing now. I am only at 14 drops but don't know if I should mail it to my daughter so I can take it while I am gone. Can I fly with it packed in my suitcase or in my carry on? It's only the 2 oz dropper bottle. I posted this request and have not heard. I am leaving on Oct 13th so I need to know soon what to do. I don't know how to get an answer to this question. I am getting very anxious about it.

I do not think that flying with 35% hydrogen peroxide is allowed, and in fact, if they find it in your luggage, you could get in serious trouble. Do a search for the MSDS (Material Data Safety Sheet) for 35% hyrogen peroxide. I think you will find that it is a Hazmat substance because it is so corrosive. I would also call the airline or airport to make sure of what the regulations are.

I have increased my H2O2 to 25 drops three times per day and am now reducing by one drop three time per day. When reaching the beginning dosage of 3 drops three times per day, what is the maintenance dose? Is it 3 drops once per day, 3 drops three times per day,or what? Any insight will be greatly appreciated. Larry

I found this article By Dr. David G. Williams interesting/informative but I am just in the gathering information stage

: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

is there a problem with mixing food grade h2o2 with chlorinated tap water for internal use? i have been doing this three times a day for six month now and just recently found an article that said not to, but did not explain why. i have been using h2o2 and baking soda to treat hep c

Always use distilled water when mixing h2o2 for consumption. The reason not to use tap water is when h2o2 is mixed with chorinated water, it gives off chlorine gas, which is very bad.

Replied by Doreena

Use FILTERED water, no chlorine. For this peroxide to work, it needs to be mixed with pure, clean water. Make sure u read about the quantities of EACH. Don't do a couple of drops into quart of water. There is a monthly regiment and dosage to mix. I left mine in the bathroom. My teeth are bad. Month later took mouth full, tasted funky, and had scum on top. Stupid me. Swallowed some and it gave me the runs. Follow ALL instructions. This is NOT the 2% u buy in store. It does recommend distilled water. Don't see any difference

H202 to hopefully cure high blood pressure & cholestorol - i took it this morning in water, 3% x 30 drops food grade, it is burning my mouth, throat, aesophagus and stomach - last winter i inhaled for a 3 month long cough/virus which wasnt cured by doctors - it worked.

Question is, would inhalation help hi BP etc instead of drinking it? Would be interested to know also if anyone takes ACV & bicarb too as spacing all these things out to take on empty stomach is very difficult to do 3 x a day and not mix the two.

Kenny, I believe any water that is chlorine free will work. Chlorine will kill the h2o2. Here in the states most of our city water is full of chlorine to kill bacteria but it also kills the oxygen that is in the water. I also add the h2o2 (food grade) to my milk and juice.

Dear EC or others knowledgeable, when I went to my local health food store and asked if they carry food grade HP, they said "it is food grade but we only carry it in 3%". They read the label to me on the phone. That product is 8-10 times more expensive than the 3% HP sold in other retail shops that also contains no additives. What to do? Just not sure how the 3% FG one is different than the 3% HP without stabilizers in other shops?

About a year ago I accidentally overdosed on H2O2. I Accidentally put 1oz 35% H2O2 into about 10oz of juice making it about 3.5% and chugged it down, within moments I realized that it was not the colloidal silver that I had thought it was. Of course it made me quite ill and I threw it all up. I then called the poison control center to see if I was going to need medical attention (it is a very good idea to label things well). We decided since it was diluted somewhat that it would probably not burn holes in my stomach. I felt quite sick for another hour or so then went on to feeling really good with the only side effect being that I was full of energy.

I first got interested in H2O2 as I was using it in my hot tub (1-cup 35% to 600 gallons of water) as an alternative to chlorine. When I switched to H2O2 we noticed that instead of the normal after hot-tub fatigue we were coming out feeling very energized. Apparently it absorbs through the skin and put extra oxygen in the blood. I have also been taking 7-drops 35% H2O2 with a glass of water on a regular basis as an effective energy drink for several years without any side effects except an increase in energy. I have been using Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide 35%. Brian

I have been using food grade HP for a few days now... But I am really sick to my stomach.... And am ready to give it up .... I am up to 24 drops three times per day.... And yesterday I said I cannot take another dose..JUST SO SICK ALL DAY LONG!! Nothing except the nausea..No other signs of a healing crisis... Not vomiting... But I am just wondering if the HP can be mixed in any type of juice..Such as cranberry juice, orange juice etc.. I see mixed reviews on the topic... And I saw aloe.... Watermelon acn be used? Either of those do not interest me... Can anyone help ...?? I am ready to give this up.... But truly need to continue as I am trying to rid myself of several ailments... And truly wish to continue as I am convinced HP is WONDERFUL.... And I know I can benefit from it.... Thanks for any advice in advance...

I think you need to cut back on your dosage. Don't be in such a hurry. Stay with the dossage you can tolerate and then move up very gradually. I got up to 20 drops 3x per day and that's all I could tolerate, that was without juice. Now I'm gradually going back down to a 5 drop maintenance level, so it takes a little longer, that's ok. I have type 11 diabetis. I believe in this tx and please don't quit, I've noticed some small changes, and look forward to no more colds or flu. Tom

How did you get so quickly to 24 drops when you use it only for a couple of days? Remember start of with 3 drops 3x per day and then increase by 1 drop per day. When you go to quick start over again, when you dont feel well try breathing deeply in and out 8 times or so after you taking it. All the Best

You stated you had been doing hp for a few days and you were up to 24 drops. You should go back and read the procedure for building up slowly the amount you drink. You should not be at 24 drops until at least day 15. If the amount is to much for you back down until you are comfortable and then increase the dosage slowly.

Replied by Bob

You said you had been on the h202 for a few days now and are sick to your stomach. It sounds to me like you went too fast. It took me approximately 50 days to get up to doing that many drops 3 x per day. I would suggest going back to the beginning and starting over. Try just 3-5 drops 3 x per day. The following day increase 1 drop with your morning dosage and if it makes you feel sick drop back to the previous day's dosage. I found I had to stay at the same dosage for 2-3 days before I could increase it. My problem was I could barely stand the taste of the stuff. Good luck!

How can you tell if it is working? I have been taking it for a few weeks, gradually building up. I do not notice much of a taste or smell at all and do not feel any different. Is there a way to test my bottle to see if it is fresh/active?

Replied by Sheena
Glasgow, Scotland

I cannot advise you on how to tell if the HP you are taking is making a difference to your condition, but you can test the solution to ensure that it is active. With a 3% solution you can perform some domestic bacteria killing and see (and or hear) the fizz (that's how you can tell it is working). Some simple ways to do this are spray or pour some onto a used dirty cleaning cloth or into a small tub and let your toothbrush sit in the solution.

Don't ingest any of the 3% solution - that is far too strong. Only test this strength domestically, to get an indication of the actual effectiveness of your HP.

Tom from WI. I have a question for you or maybe others. I have purchased the 35% food grade but Iam kinda nervous about taking it. Reasons are I am also a diabetic type 2 and on medication and I also had diverticulitis and had surgery and they removed part of my intestines and they put in a screen because i got what they called a surgical hernia. would it be OK to do this treatment while on meds for Diabetic type 2 and they have me on a High blood pressure pill because of the meds iam on. Did you quit taking your meds while doing this H202? I need to find out these answers before i start. Like I said i am very nervous about it and would like some feedback. Thanks

I have been doing the h202 inhalation method for about 2 months now. I spray about 3 or 4 times per day, each time about 6 shots. It seems I can breathe deeper when I am working out than previously. I have been taking the ACV for a little bit more than 3 months. I just added the baking soda this week, I read about it over the weekend. I have been doing the h202 therapy food grade in water for 57 days. It took me 50 days to get up to doing 25drops in about 10oz of water 3times per day. It is really horrible tasting stuff but I am not experiencing the metallic after-taste you are, except right after I drink it. It is kind of a pain because you need to time this stuff. They say drink the h202 1 hour before you eat or 3 hours after you eat.

Here is the schedule I have been using. I drink the h202 and the ACV at the same time around 7am. I don't eat breakfast I drink some protein about an hour later. Around 11am I drink the h202 and ACV again (not mixed together) just 1 right after the other. It will make your stomach a little queezy but it doesn't last long. I eat lunch around 12 or 12:30. I drink the last h202 around 5-6pm and eat an hour or so later. I am doing the ACV only twice per day with 3tablespoons in 8oz of water with 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda. The results I am having are as follows: some part of this makes your skin look really good, quite glowy and youthful. It is making my arthritis worse so I am hoping that is a good thing and it will hopefully subside as I keep doing the therapies. The h202 makes me rather hot feeling and when I workout I sweat more than I ever have before. I hope that is toxins coming to the surface. I feel like this is ridding my body of unwanted toxins that probably have been accumulating over the years. I am 52 and got arthritis of the spine (osteo) in about '03 and I also have it in my right knee and right shoulder. So, in all my research on this sight I decided to try natural remedies to see if I could cure myself of my various ailments. Not a fan of Doctors or the pharmaceutical industry here. I have never tried an arthritis medicine that worked for me, they just upset my stomach really bad and cost a fortune.

Oh, one more thing, I have always had severe allergies in the spring. The pollen here in Memphis April and May is a killer. This year I had absolutely no allergy problems during that time. Usually I stay loaded up on allergy meds till it gets really hot. I am getting ready to add drinking borax in water throughout the day. Trying to rid my body of the metallics which I hear can be a major contributor in arthritis. Anyway, that is my take on this stuff to date. If I can find a natural cure for something that ails ya', I'm all for it. Hope it helps someone out there.

For arthritis look into tumeric and ginger, great additions, don't forget lots of clean water.

Also look into making yourself some bone broth for your arthritis. Our vet said it's one of the best things you can give your dog, and after doing some research on it, I found that it helps arthritis by pulling the collagen out of the bones. You just boil the bones with some vinegar or lemon juice until they start to fall apart. I start mine in a regular pot, and then put it in the crock pot before bed, and let it go for 4 to 7 days. I make soup with it using a vegetable use as part of the base, as well as give it to my dog with has arthritis in her back and elbow dysplasia. She's doing quite a bit better, and I'm afraid if I didn't start giving her this, she would be so bad off we'd have to put her to sleep. She absolutely loves it!

Hi All health-seeking friends

I have been introduced to HP recently..Today I had 3 drops of 35% Food grade HP in 250 ml of water. I have been feeling a bleachy taste in my mouth since morning and also having some acidity.

I have some questions

1) Shall i start taking ACV with Baking Soda also in addition to HP - If so , the how much qty of ACV and how much baking soda and what should be the time gap between taking HP and ACV ?

2)- I have Silver fillings in a couple of my teeth. Will the silver fillings react with HP (when I drink or gargle)and cause any problem ?

3) I am all excited but would like to ask if inhalation method is better than drinking it in distilled water

Can any one please advise. Shall be grateful for a quick response.

Dear Sumeysh:

I tried the drip protocol but I couldn't go on because of stomach disturbing. Then I started inhalation and this worked for me, so far. Besides, it is more comfortable, you can take your little spray bottle anywhere with you. Remember, it is also great for cleaning your hands avoiding flu contagion (by the way, it is a good idea to shot your ears too).

You HAVE to mix the 35% with 10 parts distilled water! To make it 3%!

At 35% its too strong and will not be good to use that way!

So mix 1 part H2O2 with 10 parts distilled water.

Distilled water because it has only hydrogen n oxygen.

I'm advising from 3+ years of using H2O2 as an inhaler with exceptional results.

Only use FOOD GRADE H2O2 also.

Be well

Replied by Robert Henry

TUESDAY, your mixture is wrong. The easiest way to get from 35% to 3% is add 2 tablespoons of 35% peroxide to 12 oz of distilled water. For folks that use a nebulizer and want appox. 1 1/2% then just add 1 tbsp of 35% to 12 oz of distilled water. 2 tbsps = 1 fluid oz. Hate to rain on your parade, but your 3 years of use was at 3.5%, not 3%.

Dilution Rate H2O2 50%:

Hello everybody,

I have been reading about H2O2 for some time and so purchased (through the cleaning company I work for - no questions asked) 15 litres of 50% H2O2 (Oxy Bleach)and am wondering how I can dilute this to get 35%. I have thought about adding 15l of H2O2 to 1.5l of distilled water and wonder if this is correct.

I have read that it is vitally important to add the H2O2 to water and not the other way around and that at this strength (50%) anything other than water added or spilled into the H2O2 (like paper or metal fillings etc will cause an explosive effect.

BTW, the seller assures me the product is food grade and the label lists only H2O2 + water and the Product Safety data Sheet (PSDS) mentions no satbilizers either.

No worries do it like they explain it in earth clinic: 3drops 3x per day as a start than increase one drop until you on 25 drops.

Fyi; it will not cause an explosive effect. No worries. You'd have to have high % H2O2 with contamination levels added during process of making it and then expose it to open high heat flame. So, you'd really really have to try to cause an explosion to take place. And that would be counterproductive to any healing properties and just an all around bad idea.

Replied by David

Hi Mike! There is a lot of confusion on this topic. When they say never take 35% or 12% or whatever percent, what they mean is IT MUST BE DILUTED.

Only preservative free H2O2 (hydrogen peroxide) should be taken into the body, because the preservatives can be bad for you. Having said that, the next issue is the concentration, and 3% dilution seems to be as concentrated as you ever want to inhale or ingest.

So, the idea is only preservative free H2O2 which is the food grade, then make sure it is diluted down to a non-dangerous level.

I have a few questions about using 35% Hydrogen Peroxide Food Grade. In the past few years I have had some health issues and not sure if it is safe for me to do this. Last year I just found out I was type 2 diebetic and iam on metformin and they have me on high blood pressure meds to use as a ace inhibetor so the kidneys dont get messed up and Iam also take meds for high colestoral. And 2 years ago I had to have surgery for diverticulitis and they removed 8 inches of my large intestants. And then last year I had to go back and have surgery again because i had what they called a surgical hernia and they put a hernia patch in my stomic right around the belly button area. I know i have read that it wasnt good to do this treatment if you have ever had a transplant like liver or heart or etc... Due to the fact this is a foreign object in your body and the H2O2 treatment might harm you. Is this true? I just didnt know how this might react with the hernia mesh in my stomic with it being a foreign object. And also is it OK to do the treatment with my diebeties on medication or should i quit taking my meds to do this. I guess this is all and I hope I can do this treatment but I dont want to start til I find out if it is safe or not. Thanks And God Bless all

First of all however, I'd like to say thank you to Earth Clinic for what I feel is one of the finest sites of it's kind on the web, if not the finest. And thanks to all the contributors for the wealth of information to be found here.

Now to the question(s). Ted I have read hundreds of posts on here, and I've come up with too many different dilution schedules for H2O2 to count. I've pretty much gotten the point that to dilute the 35% Food Grade H2O2 to a 3.0% solution it should be 11 to 1, or 11 oz. distilled water to 1 oz 35% food grade H2O2. Here is where the problem begins. You had indicated that a .45% solution is what you recommended I believe. Is this correct, or am I in error? Also, when talking about taking drops I understand what drops are, but in how much distilled water, a bath tub, or an 8 oz. glass. Just taking drops without knowing the of the volume of the medium you're putting them in doesn't make much sense......:) Some folks are talking about using drops of 35% food grade in 8oz of water, some in 16 oz. of water, some are putting drops of 3% H2O2 in God knows how much many ozs. of water. I'm starting to get overwhelmed here you understand. :) I'd really appreciate your guidance.

I want to thank you for all your posts, and recommendations. I have COPD/emphysema from 40 odd years of smoking, which I haven't done for going on three years now, but I'm paying the price. Oh, and by the way, thank you for the Emphysema "CURE". You know I'm a firm believer in the power of posititive thinking, and a positive attitude (Dr. Wayne Dyer ). It's just that the medical community sees fit to simply tell you to "try to exercise, do breathing exercises, and prepare to die"! I'm not quite ready to go that route yet, I've got things to do and places to go! You in particular have given me hope, and the chance to see some light at the end of the tunnel so to speak, and I can't thank you enough. I've decided, a little late I know, that getting the "ol" body cleaned out and back in running condition again, is what I need to do. So, I'm currently doing the ACV and baking soda, the colloidal silver, the lecithin for fat emulsification, the cayenne pepper for circulation and heart health, the DMSO and the MSM to dissolve the tar in the lungs, and all the Vitamin supplements and trace minerals the body will take, but I'd like to start doing the nebulizer with the H2O2, in combination with taking it internally. Should I use a different concentration for the nebulizer than I do for the drinking water? Should I use 35% food grade H2O2 for the drops in drinking water, the 3.0% H2O2 for drops in the drinking water, or the .45% H2O2 for the drops in the water, HELP? With your guidance here I might just regain my sanity! .........:)

Thanks again for any information you might provide. Bob S.

I do however want to thank you for all your posts, and recommendations. I have COPD/emphysema from 40 odd years of smoking, which I gave up three years ago now, but I'm paying the price. Oh, and by the way, thank you for the Emphysema "CURE". You know I'm a firm believer in the power of positive thinking, and a positive attitude (Dr. Wayne Dyer). It's just that the medical community in this country sees fit to simply tell you to "try to exercise, do breathing exercises, and prepare to die"! I'm not quite ready to go that route yet, I've got too many things to do, and places to go, to quit at this stage of the game.! You in particular, but also a gentleman on here named Blacjack687, have given me hope, and the chance to see some light at the end of the proverbial tunnel. Honestly, I can't thank you enough for your inspiration. I've decided, although a little late, that getting the "ol" body cleaned out, and back in running condition again, is what I need to do. So, I'm currently doing the ACV and baking soda, the colloidal silver, the lecithin for fat emulsification, the cayenne pepper for circulation and heart health, the DMSO and the MSM to dissolve the tar in the lungs, and all the Vitamin supplements and trace minerals the body will take, but I'd like to start doing the nebulizer with the H2O2, in combination with taking it internally. Should I use a different concentration for the nebulizer than I do for the drinking water? Should I use 35% food grade H2O2 for the drops in drinking water, the 3.0% H2O2 for drops in the drinking water, or the .45% H2O2 for the drops in the water, HELP? With your guidance here I might just regain my sanity! .........:)

Thanks again for any information you might be willing to provide. Bob S.

P.S. Just a side note for anyone that is taking the same, or similar type regimen. A chemist from Sovereign Silver, where I purchased probably the best colloidal silver on the market today, called and advised not to take the MSM within an hour and a half of taking the colloidal silver, because the MSM will bind with the silver if I were to do so. I appreciated that info immensely, and the fact that they would take the time to go to the effort to call to provide this information. Also he advised against using DMSO to act as an injector to get the colloidal silver into the lungs faster. However, he did say that using the recommended dosage for colloidal silver in a nebulizer would be a great idea and very benefitial. Just thought you might like to know.

Answer to Gary from Lakeside about Food Grade Peroxide

For internal use you must use FOOD GRADE H2O2. 3% solution from the counter is not necessarilly food grade. If it has stabilizer it is not food grade. The best way for internal usage is food grade distilled water and maximum .05% solution.

As a scientist, here's a fact very few people realise about any chemical in concentrated or dilute form.

All chemicals are just as powerful in concentrated or dilute form. It does not matter if the chemical is an acid, soap or detergent. The actual molecule of the chemical does not break down or change when diluted. The only thing that changes is the number of molecules that will be in solution compared with the number of water molecules. That's why a dilute solution of Hydrogen Peroxide will perform just as well as a concentrated solution.

Now, let's clarify this.

Hydrogen Peroxide is an "active" molecule (chemical) and attacks anything it comes in contact with. It tries (and succeeds) in transferring its additional oxygen atom to anything it touches and this changes the structure of the item it touches.

Pure oxygen is very corrosive and if Hydrogen Peroxide touches a living organism, it changes the structure of the organism to a point where the organism dies.

If a very dilute solution of Hydrogen Peroxide touches a colony of bacteria, even though there may be only one molecule of Hydrogen Peroxide for every 10,000 molecules of water, this still equates to hundreds of molecules that will touch a single cell of bacterium. This will kill the cell.

The Hydrogen Peroxide will also have an effect on any skin it comes in contact with but since the solution is weak, (only a few per 10,000 molecules of water) the active molecules of Hydrogen Peroxide will soon be used up.

Only some of the surface cells of skin will be damaged but since these are dead (outer layers), the skin will soon recover. If a strong solution of Hydrogen Peroxide is used, more of the skin cells will be damaged and this is where the danger lies. This applies whether the solution is taken internally or externally.

To sum it up: A weak solution is just as effective as a strong solution (at the microscopic level) and will continue to be effective until it is used up. That's why Hydrogen Peroxide is so dangerous (effective).

If HP causes whatever it touches to oxidize isn't that bad for your body? After all oxidation is part of the human aging process which is why we take antioxidants to fight free radicals and oxidation. Aging is the result of free radical oxidative damage. So my question is what effect will consuming HP have on your internal organs etc...?

The difference is between oxigination and oxidation I think. Oxidation is bad (like rust or ferric oxide) whereas oxigination is good (like oxy rich red, red blood). Hope this helps.

To help provide a clarification or a way to relate Dr Mitchell's point on peroxide strength, is imagine this with relation to vodka consumption, when making a vodka tonic.

You have 25ml of vodka mixed with 100ml of tonic water.

In another glass, you have 25ml of vodka with 200ml of tonic water.

Guess which one has more vodka in it? both! They both have the same amount, 25ml of vodka. Ie. they both will get you drunk just as quick lol.

Per 100 ml of the mixed solution it is weaker, but when you are consuming the whole glass each time, it is the same amount of vokda in either glass. Same concept applies with peroxide.

Taking Hydrogen Peroxide with other with prescription meds:

I have been looking at this site for several weeks now and just want to say I am very impressed with all the information I have found. One question I would like to find is does anyone know if it would be dangerous to the the Hydrogen peroxide therapy if being on other prescription drugs. My mother in law has been doing the food grade hydrogen peroxide in her water starting with 3 drops 3 x a day and increasing her way up by a drop till she has reached 25 drops. She is doing this treatment along with her chemotherapy and lots of other medicine she is on for liver cancer that came about after her breast cancer she is still on 25 drops and it says for serious cases to stay at 25 drops for awhile. So she continues to do this but is afraid to do the 3x a day so is only doing it once a day could it interact with her medicine or chemo, and her doctor does not know she is trying this treatment.But also want to let people know since she has started this treatment with the peroxide she feels much better we are waiting for her next tests to be done so we can if it has stopped the cancer in its track keeping our fingers cross any feedback would be appreciated.Thanks Earth Clinic for this site.

Was lucky enough to find 35% H2O2 @ my local health food store and it came with a handout from the manufacturer that might be helpful.

Uses for 35% food grade Hydrogen Peroxide

Note: 35% H2O2 is highly concentrated and extremely strong. KEEP OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN. If it is spilled on skin, wash immediately in cold water. Do not allow it to touch the eyes, if this happens, wash & rinse thoroughly with cold water. Store 35% H2O2 in the refrigerator or freezer.

HEALTH NOTE: Food-borne illnesses from fruits, vegetables, meats, fish & poultry due to bacteria, fungus or parasites are a little publicized problem. Soaking in a solution of 3% H2O2 can help kill these bad guys & also help remove pesticide residue that lingers on produce.

To make 3% H2O2, mix 1 oz. of 35% food grade to 11 oz. distilled water (preferably) or filtered water.

Vegetable Soak: (in place of bleach) Add 1/4 cup 3% H2O2 to a gallon of cold water. Soak light leafy vegetables 15 to 20 min. Soak thick skinned fruits & vegetables for 30 min. (apples, cucumbers, tomatoes, etc.) If time is a problem, you can spray with straight 3%, let stand a few minutes, rinse & dry.


Athlete's Foot: Soak feet 10-20 min. each night in 3% H2O2 until condition is in remission.

Bath: 1 cup of 35% H2O2 to a full bathtub for a detoxifying bath. Note: try not to use this after 6-7 pm, as the increased absorbed oxygen may keep you awake.

Douche: Add 5 to 6 tablespoons 3% H2O2 to 1 quart distilled or filtered water.

Enema: Mix up to 6 tablespoons (Maximum) 3% H2O2 to 1 quart of distilled water.

Mouthwash: On arising, rinse mouth with water, then gargle & wash mouth with 3% H2O2 swishing for 1/2 to 1 min..(Note: a dash of chlorophyll adds flavor & effectiveness.) Helps prevent colds.

Nasal Spray: 1 tablespoon of 3% H2O2 added to 1 cup of pure water. Spray into nasal passages to relieve congestion.


Posted by Doug (Grant, Fla) on 10/20/2008

Taken from the (old) files of (Site now defunct).


Using 35% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide: (H2O2: - Internal)

Use the dosages listed in the chart with 5 oz. of distilled or purified water. When reaching higher dosages more water may be used.

Take on an empty stomach, 1 hour before a meal and at least 3 hours after a meal. If your stomach gets upset at any level, stay at that level, or go back 1 level.

Note: Candida victims may need to start at 1 drop 3 times per day.

Dosage Schedule for undiluted 35% H2O2

Day - Drops - Times-A-Day - Total Drops

01 - 03 - 03 - 09
02 - 04 - 03 - 12
03 - 05 - 03 - 15
04 - 06 - 03 - 18
05 - 07 - 03 - 21
06 - 08 - 03 - 24
07 - 09 - 03 - 27
08 - 10 - 03 - 30
09 - 12 - 03 - 36
10 - 14 - 03 - 42
11 - 16 - 03 - 48
12 - 18 - 03 - 54
13 - 20 - 03 - 60
14 - 22 - 03 - 66
15 - 24 - 03 - 72
16 - 25 - 03 - 75

For more serious complaints stay at 25 drops, 3 times per day for 1-3 weeks. Next graduate down to 25 drops, 2 times per day until the problem is taken care of. This may take from 1-6 months. Don't give up!

When free of complaints you may taper off by taking:
25 drops once every other day, 4 times
25 drops once every 3rd day for 2 weeks
25 drops once every 4th day for 3 weeks

Possible Reactions to H2O2:

Skin eruptions, nausea, sleepiness, unusual fatigue, diarrhea, colds (in head or chest), ear infections, boils, or any other method that the body uses to emit toxins from the body! (The toxins have been rooted out by the use of the H2O2.)

This is the natural way for the body to cleanse & the natural cleansing will be of short duration, as you continue to maintain your program. Above all, even if you must decrease the dosage, continue the program, don't give up.

If you get a cleansing reaction, you may want to increase the dosage to hasten the cleansing. A cleansing is the effect of the body of bacteria dying off, or various forms of poisons being released through the eliminative organs of the body, i.e. skin, lungs, kidneys & bowels.

Remember: When H2O2 comes in contact with virus & streptococcus, it will liberate free oxygen.

This may be happening in your stomach. If your stomach feels uneasy, it is only the H2O2 seeking out the virus & streptococcus to destroy.

Hello. I've used H2O2 for several years now. I purchase mine through Guardian of Eden. (yes, be patient with shipping sometimes- its worth it)

With extra oxygen in the body, the body is able to perform much better, heal itself, and kill off invaders. Everyone is severely lacking oxygen intake and this should be a daily supplement for a lifetime. Let me elaborate.- Oxygen content 75 million yrs ago was 50%. A sudden drop due to volcanic and meteor disasters greatly contributed to the extinction of the dinosaurs. Until the mid 19th Century, the oxygen level decreased only slightly more to a level of 38%. With the advent of the industrial revolution in the late 1800's, which brought on massive pollution and car exhaust, by the 1950's the oxygen level in our atmosphere dropped to 21% - IN LESS THAN 100 YEARS!. THE OXYGEN LEVEL ONLY DROPPED 12% IN 75 MILLION YEARS!! The oxygen content today is estimated at less than 17% !! This factor alone, is a major reason of so many degenerative dis-eases. OUR BODIES REQUIRE MORE OXYGEN.

Only purchase 17% or 35% Food Grade H2O2, with a dropper bottle. To make 3% H2O2 from 35%, mix 11 parts distilled water with 1 part h2o2. (11 ounces to 1 ounce). Or, what I do is keep a dropper bottle and add drops to my glasses of water. Do NOT mix this solution with anything else, including taking vitamins!!
Start off slow! H2o2 is very strong and can be very dangerous! Start with one drop in a glass of distilled or purified water 1-3 times the first day, then move up one or two drops each day, BUT do NOT exceed 20 drops!

I also recommend ___ minerals, sea salts, and magnesium baths, which I personally use. (not a rep)

To the lady who said her fish died from the local tapwater.The most likely reason is that she changed the water early in the day or at a time when the local authority had just put the daily dose of chlorine in the water and it was more concentrated than later in the day when it would have been more diluted . Changing the fishwater later in the day would make a difference.

If you run the cold water for a few minutes to flush out the heavy metals then put a bit of fresh water salt into it and let it sit for a few hours or days (if you are that patient) you can prevent killing future fish. also tossinn a cap of hydrogen peroxide into a 5 gallon thing of it if the change is needed imediately will promote the good bacterias growth!! itrs safe and the fish will love it mix it before you toss it in!!

Hi, I just found out if you use h2o2 in drinking water, it should be distilled water because h2o2 will bind with any chemical or mineral in the water and could become toxic. I found Guardian of Eden online sells small as well as large quantities of 35% food grade h2o2 I think as small as 1 pint or quart. I can't imagine getting a few drops out of a gallon jog without spillingso i'm going to buy the smallest size. I'm really scared to handle 35% food grade but am determined to give it a try. Seems diluting the 35% in distilled water myself is the only way to go to be sure there are no contaminants. Also learned it should be taken on an empty stomach 3 hours after eating. I'm learning something new everyday.

I have been a user of 12% and then 35% peroxide for 10 years. I have met every cold and flu, at the onset of symptoms, with a single "dose" of a peroxide dilution. With 12% I used 1/8 teaspoon per 4 oz of any non-carbonated drink. I used 3 drops of 35% peroxide in 4 oz of fluid. (With repeated confidence gained, I stopped needing to measure and just poured.) Take this on an empty stomach at the onset of symptoms and sickness is kicked in the butt. Symptoms never return. If I woke up in the morning sick, then I would redose like this every ten minutes until symptoms disappeared. Usually this came about after three doses and then an instance of throwing up. But symptoms would always clear and I could go about my day as if nothing bad visited me. These grades of peroxide will not burn the skin badly. In fact, if you have any growth on your skin, it is possible to use them full strength to kill any bacteria or fungus on skin. Wet a q-tip and apply to the spot. Yes, your skin will become white and there will be a simple stinging, but this is not to be feared. This will last for a limited amount of time and then clear. For example, 30 minutes. But you can practice diluting it and applying some to your skin to get a feel for it. This has been my friend for ten years and it has never hurt me.

Since that accident the company is now using special caps which allow the pressure to subside. Only like to inform your readers that handling HP especially the 35% has to be done with care, since the pressure in the bottle can become quite high!

I recently received some 35% h202. I do not know if it has any "benefits" as of yet, but it does make me feel just a little better after drinking about 32 ozs OF WATER WITH DILUTED H202.

***PLEASE NOTE*** DO NOT "OVERUSE" 35%...H202, IT WILL DEFINITELY BURN YOU... INSIDE OR OUTSIDE OF THE BODY. I put 8 drops of 35% in 8 ozs of purified water... THIS WAS WAY WAY TO MUCH!!! FOR ME, I COULD FEEL IT BURN ALL THE WAY DOWN , AND IN MY STOMACH. I found the best amount is 4 drops per 8 ozs of pure water. I actually enjoy drinking it as it does make me feel better.

I also drink 6 hours later, citric acid 1 teaspoon/ baking soda 1 teaspoon / "dash" of apple cider vinegar. I HAVE NOT SEEN ANY IMPROVMENT FROM THE ACV... NONE! People are swearing by it... that it does this, and does that... i notice "ABSOLUTLY NOTHING".


One thing that i have used that actually DOES DO SOMETHING FOR YOU... IS Dr Natura "Colinix Toxinout" programs, BOTH done at the same time. I was just looking for a body detox.... and along with this, "I LOST OVER 50 LBS". I was not looking for this from this product, but it does say that you "may" lose weight... well i sure did. I never noticed it for about 60 days, then i noticed my clothes were "very loose" and i went to the last hole on my belt. I then weighed myself, {and dont laugh, i was 280 lbs @ 6'3" TALL} I weighed 228!!!! I actually could not believe it. I have another 30 days to go on the program, which is very easy ... even for a lazy person like myself. "COULD I ACTUALLY GET UNDER 200 LBS??" LET'S WAIT AND SEE.

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.

Hello, I started this therapy and I'm feeling pretty good, just started soaking my feet in it at 3% last night and I'm looking forward to getting rid of my Nail Fungus which I've had forever. The only thing is that I cannot take the HP with filtered water or Distilled water. I cannot handle the bleachy taste and feel like I'll puke, so I started taking it with kefir almond milk and find it much better, is this ok?

I was on the HP for about 15 days, starting with 1 drop 35% in 8 oz. water, 3 times a day and adding a drop every day. I went a little slower than most people, stayed at 3 drops a couple days etc. At about the 5 drop day I started to feel better and have more energy and a good frame of mind, very happy with that. BUT, I also started bloating up so bad I couldn't fasten my pants, ankles swelled and my appetite was crazy (gained weight! ). I can almost understand the bloating, if I had maybe eaten too close to taking my HP. The swelling up of my feet, and my face I do not understand. Have not taken it for 5 days now, no longer have a crazy appetite and swelling is down. Unfortunately I am back to NO energy and not a very good mood.

Any ideas? Thank you in advance.

Chris, either stay on low dose for longer or try Bill Munro''s inhalation method for h2o2.

Thank you. I think I might try the low dose. I miss not having any energy.

You might want to try staying at 3 drops per day for a little while longer before increasing to 5 drops. I was reading about how something like this might happen because of Candida, and it suggested a lower dose for a longer period of time until this passes.

I am wondering if anyone else has had a breathing problem drinking hydrogen peroxide? I am on day 8 increasing everyday by one drop like the book One Minute Cure instructs. Yesterday my breathing seemed to be more labored and still is today. Am I doing anything wrong and will it get better in time. The doctor tells me I have COPD but I don't believe them but I have had Asthma for some time now. I am a little frightened with the breathing thing going on, any help would be welcomed. I have read other stories but no one mentions the shortness of breath. Thanks.

Diana, "listen yo your bones"! You are obviously taking too much for your body! Skip a few days and see if your breathing gets better, then start (and stay) at a much lower dose.

Replied by Béryl

Hi Diana,

I am also having shortness of breath in taking the H202 remedy. I am putting this down to a Herx reaction for the moment. The shortness of breath seems to be due in my case to muscles tightening in the belly region preventing natural movement of the diaphragm and not to a lung problem as such. I will continue the H202 for the moment and see how it goes.

All the best,

Hello I have a question, I have type two diabetes and Lyme Disease. I am up to 20 drops of 35% food grade peroxide twice daily. I started my period a few days late and it was a weird one, one of the worst I have ever had and I normally have bad periods, but then it didnt end its two weeks later and its still there. Does anyone know whats going on, or had this happen to them? Is it a healing crisis? I feel very hormonal, a little dizzy, mild cramps. Other than this the h2o2 has been working great. Thanks for your help!!

I've been doing the protocol using 35% food grade peroxide. I left a mixture of 5 drops with 12oz of distilled water in the fridge overnight. This am when I drank it, it caused my to vomit. The only difference from the day before was that I left it on the fridge overnight. Would that cause me to be sick?? Thanks for the help.

Replied by Rsw


Did you dilute the 35% food grade peroxide down to 3% before you started taking it? It must be diluted before ingesting - I believe it is eleven parts distilled water to one part 35% peroxide.

01/24/2018 my opinion..there are many germs all around inside. There might have even been a reaction from the inside of the container. I disinfect my glass by spraying the inside before I pour the water In my glass

I am having hydrogen peroxide nausea. Anything I can take for the nausea besides reducing my drops? Also, does stress really counteract this therapy by closing off the cells from the extra oxygen?

It is very important to first do alkalizing remedies prior to Oxygen Therapy. You may want to consider an herbal parasite cleanse as there are several bad toxins produced from various paras. Also consider Colloidal Silver in place of H2O2. After making these changes, you may try doing H2O2 again.

As for stress, well there are many forms of it and most of them are damaging to health on many levels. And stress, over time, is deadly as it causes big declines in health, and is becoming known as one of the leading causes of cancer.

I use the food grade hydrogen peroxide diluted in water. I have an itch like I have hemrhoids but I do not. What can I do to alleviate this?

I started taking food grade hydrogen peroxide. It's 35% and I have been putting 8 drops in 8oz of water every morning. I have been doing this for over a month. I am feeling sick and am having headaches and eye issues. Could it be the peroxide? please help!!!!!

Kjoken, yes, you are taking too much and too often for your body.

Replied by Joey B

Lady, you are poisoning yourself. You should be putting 3 drops or less of 18.5% hydrogen peroxide food-grade into 16 ounces of water a day. Anything more you're destroying yourself. Stop what you're doing immediately, wait for a week and then start the three drops.

Replied by Goalkeeper

Use 7-10 drops of 3% hydrogen peroxide per glass of water.

I am very upset because I used a couple of drops of Hydrogen Peroxide and I did not put it with distilled water and I mixed it with an eight ounce glass of water. I have been through hell since I did it. I have gone to the E.R twice for swelling and inflammation and it does not seem to get better. It feels better for a little while and then starts to feel like it's swelling again. I am so upset, I have been suicidal at times. I am a victim to not researching this properly and being a complete idiot. Please help me know if in time this will heal.

Dear Representative,

I have a couple of questions about food grade hydrogen peroxide. I bought a couple of bottles from Eagle Enterprises about a year a go and they seem to have lost their strenght or concentration.

1) Does this happen, ie can hydrogen peroxide degrade.

Secondly since it seems weaker I was able to use 60 drops per 8oz of water, but it made me a little nauseaus but then passed and I had to urinate about an hour later, even though I just urinated an hour earlier. My feeling was that the H202 went right through.

2) Is there any danger to my kidney's or the rest of my body?

Thanks, Edward

Hi I started the 35% food graded hydrogen peroxide therapy jan 20th 2014 and I was at 18 drops yeasterday at 9:00 am and finish drinking the dluted water around 9:40 ish and started eating around 10:40 ish , I didn't realize it was 11 yet and I know you have to wait an hour before eating .. so I am worried that the food mess up the lining of my stomach ... I pray that it didn't but I have a lil discomfort on my left side and some cramping and nausea ... I'm not sure if it's because of the food or because I'm at a higher dose so I'm scared and don't know if I should stop today or continue or go to a doctor. Please help

I was on 35% Food Grade Hydrogen peroxide regime was up to 18 drops I took after doing some pushups then went to take a shower I immediately started feeling pain in my chest. I jumped out the shower and started to look online on what to do. I found out I should drink lots of water. I assumed maybe I took more than 18 drops by accident. Any tips guys?

Replied by Marie

Did you dilute the 35% then add the drops Or did you add the drops straight from 35%?

I have been diagnosed with COPD and had a very bad experience using the steroids I was given. I have since been trying to find alternative ways to manage my condition and recently read a free ebook about using H2O2 ( hydrogen peroxide).

There was lots of advice on using it for COPD and then this statement ....

"If you have any artificial parts in your body, you must seriously consider the risks of using hydrogen peroxide. No one really knows what these risks are".

This is a link to the e book: written by James Paul Roguski.

I want to try using H202 but I have nine dental implants and am very concerned about embarking on this treatment as dental implants would qualify as an artifical body part! I emailed the author of the book and was not able to get a clear answer. I was wondering if anyone on this forum had had a similiar experience of treating themselves ( with any condition) ingesting H202 with dental implants/artificial body part.

Replied by Arthur

I don't know how old this post is but I think they were referring to heart, lung and kidney transplants. The H2O2 will reject the transplant. Hope this helps.

Replied by Sandra

In reply to artificial body parts...i had breast augmentation years ago. Still have my implants and am on the FG hydrogen regime with NO side effects. My mother who has dental implants also uses hydrogen peroxide solution with NO side effects. I say try it and watch to see if you have side effects. If you do just discontinue use.

Replied by Elaine

If you have COPD then you probably have a nebulizer. Have you thought about putting H2O2 in your nebulizer? It would bypass the stomach and GI tract. Plus, your lungs get the H2O2 into your system faster. And, it will also do what you want it to do to your lungs; clean them out. But, I have also seen here on Earthclinic where Ted recomends DMSO for COPD. It will melt the tar in lungs. It has to be food grade DMSO as normally it smells very strong/garlicky. I have not done any of these things nor am I recommending them. Just ideas.
