Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy: Benefits and Side Effects

Food Grade Peroxide and Supplements

Posted by Chris (Las Vegas) on 01/08/2014

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!

Ted says it will oxidize supplements, so best to take on empty stomach and let it soak in for an hour.


Food Grade Peroxide Tips

Posted by Michael_deeduck (Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada) on 01/17/2013

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

Food Grade Peroxide: 3% vs 35%

Posted by Dee (Sprinfield, Ma) on 12/06/2013

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.

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 researched dilutions of hydrogen peroxide and this is what I came up with to make a 6% solution. Mix 5 1/2 ounces of aloe vera gel to 1 ounce of 35% H2O2. This is the solution I mixed up from your recipe. Really liked the results. Thank-you

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.

Bohdan, as for an additive beverage I use "watered down" (half n half) room temp coffee. The H2O2 taste is still present but not near as bad as w/ only water. As for timing, just take halfway between meals, and I have never experienced any side effects less than an hr before meal.

Posted by Cleoppa (Cleburne, Tx) on 05/31/2011

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.

Posted by Mymindisnotme (Spain) on 07/12/2014

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.

Mymindisnotme: Yes, your body has had too much H2O2. Reduce that dose every day until your down to 2 drops which would be sufficient for purification purposes.

Allergies are very often a case of leaky gut or dirty colon. Toxins get into the bloodstream thru the gut/colon and the immune system goes burzerk. This condition can be dangerous if one is taking any pharmaceutical drugs as they to enter the bloodstream un-metabolized. I have had this happen several times and my bad symptom is kidney pain and infection. Speaking of Kidney, you need to take Kidney/Urinary Track cleaning herbs which are recommended here on E.C.

Also search the "Ailments" section at the top of page for healing remedies for your digestive system.

You may also need to begin an anti-inflammatory diet plus supplements as inflammation triggers allergies. Bad food sensitivities can also trigger allergies. Note any foods that may be triggering reactions.

Let us know how you are doing.

Thank you Timh, I appreciate your reply. I couldn't get to the internet, I was working away. Since I wrote the above post, I stopped taking the H2O2, and plan instead to inhale it. Up to now, I still have flashbacks of the H2O2 taste and my stomach turns. The sneezing stopped, the congestion is barely there, however, since yesterday, I have an itching in my body (including my private parts like if I'm coming down with cistitis), tolerable but I'm aware of it. Also some spots on my chest and face, a couple on my back and arms. I don't have problem with my digestion or my stomach. I'd like to know why your suggestion to take Kidney/Urinary Tract herbs? I'll search for the cleaning herbs here and also what is an anti-inflamatory diet to follow your advise. Thanks again Timh, much appreciated.

Mymindisnotme: To keep the blood clean, one needs to take kidney urinary cleanse periodically, as well as colon cleans, gallbladder cleans, and a parasite cleanse --each of these is suggested once yearly to prevent disease. Optimizing antioxidant nutrition is also very important in staying healthy. All this keeps the immune system in top shape.

Turmeric, Quercetin, Pinnapple, and Cold Water Fish like Salmon, Mackeral, and Sardines (Oil) are all very good anti-inflammatory. Bee Pollen starting in very small amounts then working up to 1 or 2 spoons daily is a very beneficial "superfood".

Glad to help, and hope to hear good news from you soon.

....further to Sooki's suspected Herx reaction....I ingested just one drop of 35% food grade in 5 to 6 ounces of water - once daily, for about 10 days. I've not used distilled water and after 5 days, or so, noticed a couple of dry skin spots on my face. Not unusual as I've suffered from skin issues most of my life and, honestly, I thought it was due to a hair conditioner I had used that week. Within the next 5 days, I developed a severe rash on my face, neck & ears - my inner elbow had three spots that looked like pimples and now looks almost like poison ivy, just not as itchy....also my shins and feet are broken out. My thinking got quite cloudy and I felt flu-ish. Am I VERY toxic and this is my body's way of cleansing? Or should I not ingest it every day? I didn't think I was drinking too much H2O2....any opinions? I'm 56, female and decided to try this treatment for overall health - I can say that after just a day or two of drinking the H2O2 I felt better, and have continued to feel better, with regard to certain muscle discomforts going away and my breathing got better (I'm a smoker). This outbreak of itchy, dry and burning skin is really horrible!

Not so sure about what I've read....some suggestions appear to be 35% by the drop; some suggestions appear to be that the 35% should be reduced, then the dilution is used by the drop. Once I get to the other side of this mess I'm in, described above, I may try a drop of the diluted in my water but will not be using the full 35% in my water. phew, what a lesson I've learned!

Hi. HP at 17% if doubled is 34% so to get a similar dose to what would be if you had 35%, take two times the drops. Anyone feel free to check my work.

Jessica: I am not familiar w/ any contraindication or interaction of alcohol & H2O2. H2O2 basically increases oxygenation of tissues that are not otherwise affected by normal cellular respiration. Alcohol, consumed in large quantities, actually decreases oxygen levels and increases acidosis (among other things) causing headache & hangover.

If you are a regular drinker, it would prove beneficial to take 50mg Zinc and 500mg Niacinamide daily so to help your body detoxify the alcohol.

Zinc supplements have there place no doubt but people need to understand zinc displaces copper. Copper is needed to keep organs and veins flexible. i.e. Zinc could cause heart attacks if not balanced in use. Had to share!

From a natural perspective, I view Zinc as the big brother and Copper as little sister. Zinc & Copper in sufficient amounts like 50-100 mg Zinc taken with 3 mg Copper (what I take daily) is no danger of displacement. Do note that one of the body's indigenous enzymes Superoxide Dismutase (SOD) is produced mainly from Zinc/Copper or Manganese.

For most folks, a daily amount would be like 25-50 mg Zinc w/ 1.5 mg Copper, and do not take with fiber foods and do add 100 mg Vit-B-6 aka Pyridoxine for best utilization.

But yes, Copper is important in the elasticity of Arteries.

The soil is so depleted of nutritional value, that people are dropping like flies with all sorts of long term illnesses as they age (which means more profits for drug companies).

S: Unfortunately the political financial overloards have the power to make minerals "illegal" in many countries of the world. Of course there are ways of skirting around, like purchasing mineral supplements from farmers supply or pet supply stores. Dr. Joel Wallach spent most of his life proving that nutrition prevents and cures many diseases in pets, livestock, and people.

First in order is disease prevention by taking the Multivitamin/Mineral supplement daily, so as to not need therapeutic doses of individual minerals later on when disease kicks in. There are also many Major & Trace Mineral "Ionic" or "Colloidal" products for maximum benefit.

As for Copper, you can revert back to using Copper Cookware with some benefit.

Dear Kt,

I think that is a logical question.

I have used DMSO from the farm store on myself. Robert Henry had a good point that it if it is good enough for million dollar horses (or something akin to that) it is good enough for people.

I knew a veterinarian many years ago with chronic Lyme disease. She ended up treating herself successfully with vet grade anti-biotics. She was comfortable with the quality.

I know I have seen on this site certain things to buy from an aquarium shop for medicinal use.

I am sure there are plenty of things I would not use from a pet or farm store on myself, but there are some things I have been comfortable with, particularly on the advice of people whose opinions I trust.
