A few months ago, after much research and hesitation on my part, I decided to begin hydrogen peroxide treatment. I began with inhaling 3% food grade H2O2, as it seemed the least likely to induce any harm. And indeed, I noticed that I was able to breathe more deeply, and had more energy, particularly when ascending stairs or doing cardiovascular exercise. I increased the dose, and saw more pronounced results. (On the negative side, I noticed that my tongue began getting a thick brown coating, which concerned me... but apparently not enough.)
Because I had seen such positive results, I decided to begin ingesting diluted 35% hydrogen peroxide, starting with one drop in a cup of distilled water, 3 times a day. I increased the dose by one drop each time (i.e., 2 drops 3 times a day on the second day, and so forth.)
On the second day, I felt great. But as the days proceeded and I increased the dose, I became more irritable. I simultaneously felt more tired, yet my body felt as though it could not handle the energy I seemed to have. By the sixth day, I was dragging horribly.
Not five minutes after I had my second dose of 6 drops diluted in about 6 oz of distilled water that day, I suffered a grand mal seizure... The eighth one I've ever had, and the first one in eight years. It was very traumatic for me (and my partner, who witnessed it for the first time ever). I am now not driving for 3 months, and my medication has been increased as a precaution.
I spoke with my homeopath about it. Every epileptic patient she has worked with suffered at least one more seizure as a healing crisis before they were healed. (Naturally, we are addressing this. ) My parents believe it is due to the fact that I have gained about 60 pounds since I began this medication. I believe that this seizure was because of the hydrogen peroxide, mainly because stress and exhaustion tend to precede my seizures, and there was too much correlation for the incident to be a coincidence. Still, I honestly believe that all three scenarios are possible, and my hope is that this was indeed a healing crisis.
In retrospect, I should have listened to my body, and kept the dose at a minimum until I felt well enough to increase it. Still, I write this post as a strong warning for anyone who has suffered seizures in the past that they may have another seizure if they take hydrogen peroxide internally. I had great hope for hydrogen peroxide therapy, but despite what many people have said, this is not an entirely safe therapy, and it must be approached with a great deal of caution. If nothing else, I strongly recommend that anyone who takes hydrogen peroxide internally should listen to their body; if you feel worse, at least stay on the same dose until you feel better. Don't hesitate to decrease a dose or discontinue this therapy altogether if you don't feel so good.

Can you take food grade hydrogen peroxide while pregnant, even as early as 5 weeks?
Hi. I am really confused as to when I should be taking supplements with 35% FG H202. I have read that it is good to take L-Lysine, Olive Leaf Extract, and Copper, which is said to increase the effectiveness of the oxygen in the body up to 3000 times, with it. But I have also read it is not safe to take copper with this from various websites. There is conflicting information. Thank you!
It may be that many people are forgetting to take hydrogen peroxide on an EMPTY STOMACH. You must take your dilute hydrogen peroxide (drops in water regimen) at least 1 hour BEFORE meals or 3 or more hours AFTER meals. Otherwise the peroxide will react chemically with the food to produce unwanted substances than can cause nausea.
It is also recommended to use a high strength, multi-strain probiotic (as high as 14 strains) at the rate stated on the bottle. Also hydrogen peroxide apparently reacts with iron in the blood and so reduces its oxygen carrying ability. So long term users of H2O2 would do well to eat foods higher in iron, such as spinach, swiss chard, dark raisons, black currents, etc. , to avoid becoming anemic.
Persons who want to stay healthy longer in life should learn proper FOOD COMBINING. AND, eat smaller meals. Here are some approximate food digestion times:
Sugars, fruit and melons......... 2 to 3 hours
Green vegetables & starchy foods... 4. 5 to 5 hours
Beans, peas, soy products, milk, cream, meats, fish eggs, fats and oils............. Up to 12 hours!
Clearly it would be better while treating one's self with hydrogen peroxide to go on a vegetarian diet. Most people could not wait 12 hours between meals plus another hour following the 8oz glass of water with H2O2 drops in it. I hope this helps those people who have been getting sick following the taking of peroxide drops. And it may also hold true for the other methods of infusing the body with peroxide.
I am almost totally vegetarian and I'm up to 17 drops in 8oz of water 3 times a day. I have not thus far become nauseous. And, I had stomach/gut issues before I started. I believe I was/am carbohydrate and gluten intolerant.
My groin/bladder-area pain and irritation is feeling smooth. Fibromyalgia is reduced enough so I can sleep thru the night. I have more restful sleep with more pleasant dreams. When I wake up I am ready to get with it. I am 76 years old. I plan to keep hydrogen peroxide in my health arsenal for the rest of my days.
I believe that everyone who uses hydrogen peroxide intelligently, carefully and precisely can benefit from using it. But do your research first. Follow only sound, carefully written, trusted advice. Increase dosages slowly and hold at a level or go back a bit for a few days before increasing again if you experience nausea. Always play it safe. Don't trust to luck or magic. Get it right the first time; avoid mistakes and disappointment.
I like to remember what some naturopath wrote many years ago: "disease cannot live in a well oxygenated body"! Caring doctors are still saying the same thing today.
The best of health to you, Michael
December 6, 2013; I've been busy since cleaning up my internal body from what I think is candida; anyway, because of prior kidney problems I opted for borax bath instead of ingesting, but studied and read literally hundreds (278 to be exact) of pages thoroughly on borax, ACV, Bill's protocol, Ted's expert advice, etc., and came across a lot of discussion on food grade hydrogen peroxide. Could someone clarify for me what is the difference between 3% and 35% food grade? I purchased from my local health food store what I thought was 35% because I saw the 3, but the store was closing so grabbed it off the shelf quickly. When I got home it was 3% and a warning from FDA not to ingest. I didn't read any posts really explaining the difference between 3 and 35%. I believe the one I purchased from E........O.....(i also read we're not supposed to use brand names) does not have any stabilizers in it as Ted spoke of, so why can't I use the 3% instead of what I read on amazon.com (as well as a few on earthclinic) about the extreme dangers of 35% Food Grade? I want to continue to thank everyone, especially Deirdre the founder of this site, Ted and Bill and the posters who have helped me take responsibility for my health. I have been extremely ill from the borax baths and am now recovered, but talk about die-off! The itching in vaginal area is still gone and have also lost 8 pounds which up till now has been difficult being over 60. Thanks to anyone who can answer my question. Also I do have a histroy of kidney problems and extreme throat closing allergies to iodine so any help with Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide will be greatly appreciated. God Bless all of you wounded healers at earth clinic!
Hydrogen Peroxide 3% works wonders for me. I used one cap size of HP (the cap on the hp bottle) and one cap of bottle spring water. I simply tossed the hp/water solution in my mouth and swallowed it. I did this three times a day for one day only. I had eaten some food that had badly upset my stomach (my stomach kept making rumbling noises)and it was cramping up so badly. the same day I immediately swallowed 1 cap full of hp and one cap full of spring water (hold the cap of hp in your mouth then chase it down with the capful of spring water). That same night I sleep like a baby and I felt so good in the morning. I hope that you have the same experience because food poisoning is never a good thing but quick relief is a miracle. I took this mixture immediately after my stomach started cramping.
I regularly use hydrogen peroxide footbaths.....1/2 oz in 1/2gallon of hot water with a dash of seasalt.....my feet look and feel great. Last week after several baths, I walked over 120 city blocks in one day, and my feet weren't tired! Stay in the Light, Dieter
Many years ago I met a man whom I mistook for a high school boy, he was actually in his 40's. He told me about a 6% hydrogen peroxide solution he made by mixing food grade hydrogen peroxide with aloe very gel. He told me how to mix it (I don't remember now) and to rub it onto the entire body (except face) 20 or 30 min before shower, daily. I did this for a while and noticed many improvements in my appearance as well as energy levels, however I got busy with life and forgot after a while. Now I'm told by the local health food store where I once bought it that they no longer sell the food grade hydrogen peroxide because it is illegal now? Is this true or is there still places this food grade peroxide can be purchased?

I mix 3% topical hydrogen peroxide with salt and a little bubble bath as a wetting agent and apply it to my skin. This has been incredible! With the added salt it is absorbed into the body, but does not burn the skin at all. It seems like the salt should make it burn more, but it helps the body absorb it and does not burn the skin. Even if it gets into a cut with the salt and wetting agent it does not hurt anywhere near as much as straight hydrogen peroxide. I first started using it to treat a facial condition, but I was so impressed with the results that I began using it on larger areas of my body. Now about once a month I mix about a half pint of this solution and sponge bath my entire body with it. I have been doing this for about two years with no adverse results, and my body seems to have a more youthful appearance. I believe it kills a wide range of organisms that reside within the body, yet does not harm the body's own cell tissue. I know it sounds wacky, but I believe that anyone who tries this treatment will be amazed by the results.
I have been using 35% food grade H2O2 on and off for several years. Cleaning my body and environment quite effectively. My question is on the consumption. I drink 8 - 10 drops in distilled water most mornings.
( I believe in small breaks and remaining aware of my intuitive sense as to when and how often)
Its wonderful and I've experienced only positive results. My only desire is to find a more enjoyable way to consume this stuff? Some don't mind the taste/sensation at all, but I really cant stand it!! I recall reading years ago something about grapefruit juice?? I would love to learn of alternatives.
One other question is on the scheduling. As I understand it, one should should avoid food and drink 3 hours before and 1 hour after. I have an extremely fast metabolism and really cannot handle a 4 hour break. The morning is easy as 3 hours is done while sleeping, but the rest of the day is without such a large window and I would really like to up the number of intakes per day on occasion. Is all that time necessary? Does my fast metabolic rate mean I don't have to wait as long? Do certain foods mix with the process better?
My gratitude to anyone with answers and to all who make this clinic possible.

So, I've read that hydrogen peroxide should be taken no sooner than three hours after eating and one hour before eating.
I'm curious how closely people follow this advice and if they've noticed a difference in when they take it in relation to when they eat their food? I'm trying to take HP three times a day, but it is rather difficult. I'm hardly pigging out all day, but I'm not really planning my day around hydrogen peroxide consumption, either.
I'm taking H2O2 Peroxide 35% Food Grade, 25 drops in juice for 12 days, going into 13. Where I live there is no distilled water.
My problem is that I struggle to keep it in my stomach for the last 5 days, my body...? or my stomach doesn't want it and I spend all day agonising as I think of it and my stomach turns.
I started taking it due to a debilitating allergy that kept me congested 24/7, itchy sticky eyes, constant sneezing, perhaps sinus problem...? Doctors prescriptions didn't work, and they put it all down to hay fever. Since taking the Hydrogen Peroxide, I have noted a slow but definitive improvement, my eyes are not itchy but somehow still irritated, hardly any sneezing, less congested than before.
What can I do? I don't want to stop but this is weighing on me all day long and I feel I can't continue. Any advise will be greatly appreciated.
