I've read some stuff on the web indicating that H2O2 can create some seriously bad free radicals if ingested with vitamin C and High fat foods. Can anyone explain the relationship between H2O2 and free radical creation?

The time needed to wait after food consumption will vary from individual to individual as is the case for most supplements. Generally you should try to wait 1 - 1.5 hrs before and after using H202. Also be sure you cut the FG H202 down to 3%.... DO NOT USE IT AT FULL STRENGTH!!

I was wondering if you could filter the H202 to clean the impurities from simple drug store peroxide?

Replied by Thenewguyintown

Although many of the OTC H202's contain stabilizers there are many that do not. The best test is to simply pour some into a clear glass and put it on a window sill in the sunlight. Leave it there for about an hour or so, after which it should be totally clear like water. If there is any change in color it contains stabilizers. However, since its relatively inexpensive to begin with, you should simply purchase "FOOD GRADE" H202 if you plan on using it internally.

Hello Sir
I am base in Kenya and have recently come across your site and find it very useful in the fight again ignorance that kill our people everyday. This is due to the fact that a group of so call professional have hold the world hostage because of their selfish interest. Dear Sir I will kindly request you to tell me how-many drop of H202 can be use in 250ml of water. If I could also add the baking soda how-many gram could be used to mix all?
Your assistance will be highly appreciated. Kind regards, Leonard Sitamze

Conservatively speaking, if you have 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide, you can start with one drop and gradually increase up to 10-20 drops of H2O2 per 250 ml (one cup) of water taken one to four times a day for four to five days a week. If you have 35% food grade H2O2, you can start with one drop and gradually increase to 4-8 drops per 250 ml (one cup) of water taken one to four times a day for four to five days a week. For serious problems, some people take much higher doses, but I wouldn't do that unless you were working along side an alternative health practitioner. This is an example, they advise gradually building up to 25 drops of 35% H2O2 up to three times a day for serious problems and then tapering off to a weekly maintenance dose after the problem is resolved. Most people won't be able to stand the taste and possible detoxification side effects at this level though.

Also remember to take at least 1,000 milligrams of vitamin C (sodium ascorbate) each day to combat the oxidative effects of H2O2. Take them at least several hours apart or H2O2 (oxidant) will cancel out vitamin C (antioxidant). As for baking soda, you could take half (roughly 1/4 teaspoon) to one gram (roughly 1/2 teaspoon) of baking soda per 250 ml (one cup) of water two to three times a day for four to five days a week. If you are sodium sensitive, you may also want to add 1/8 to 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of potassium citrate or potassium bicarbonate as well.

I have started the H2O2 (35%) at 3 drops in 6oz of water 2-3 times per day. I am now on 6 drops per day and I actually feel more tired... I have read through numerous blogs but have not seen that posted by anyone. Can my fatigue be related to the H2O2 or do you think something else is going on?

I think I had some fatigue problems when I started too. I also got a relatively minor cold starting out. What I did was maintain my dosage for a few days, then continued to increase it when I felt a bit better.

Scientists Track How H2O2 Keeps Cells Healthy

In a report out of Winston Salem, MA, Scientists say claim to have figured out how hydrogen peroxide is produced in the human body to assist in keeping cells healthy when bacteria levels elevate. "The report by a team of researchers at Wake Forest University School of Medicine, published in the journal Nature, said large amounts of hydrogen peroxide are produced when the immune system is activated in response to bacteria. The team used X-ray crystallography to create a three-dimensional snapshot of how the proteins interact. Scientists said a molecule known as Peroxiredoxin (Prx) helps control levels of hydrogen peroxide. If levels of hydrogen peroxide become too high, the cell's DNA and other proteins can be damaged. It basically acts as a sensor and warns the cell that levels are too high and that the cell needs to respond, " lead author Thomas J. Jonsson said in a news release. "Once that threat is gone, Prx needs to go back to its normal state." Prx becomes active again by binding with a protein known as sulfiredoxin, the report said.

Remarkably, these complex processes in our own bodies can produce, balance and even perfectly control the levels of H2O2 in our own cells to maintain a healthy internal environment. If only we were as clever as our own cells when it comes to healthy external environments! Surely we are beginning to see how all natural processes work together to maintain balance. The more we learn, the better able we will be at extending these lessons outward into the world of our human activities and processes.

Just finished a lengthy article on the benefits of ingesting H202. Also, a mention of fasting. Since herx effect or healing crisis can be caused by outcoming toxins, does anyone have any experience with fasting and H202 ingesting simutaneously? Would combining the 2 (i know you are supposed to ingest H202 on an empty stomach anyway) make the healing crisis more severe? Thanks in advance. Many Blessings!

I use h202 with vegetable juice fasting and it works very well. One tablespoon of 3% h202 in a glass of carrot apple juice.

Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy...a big NAY!

You all should be aware that many doctors advise strongly against ingesting Hydrogen Peroxide. . . Dr. Weil for one...

....although he is referring to ingesting 35% which no one is suggesting here. . But still advises against ingesting any form of it.

I use h2o2 daily to rinse my mouth with. . . I do note that this comment from Dr. Weil is talking about 35% not the 3% I use. . . Is there a big difference and is he right? thanks.

35% Food grade Hydrogen Peroxide is absolutely a miracle cure. . . . Over time. So many benefits! ! ! ! -and not the side effects that synthetic drugs come with. Take the opportunity to research ALL FG H2O information and see for yourself the results that arise after using. Big Pharma cannot patent H2O therefore it does not add to their bottom line as do all the synthetic "garbage" they produce, thus the discredit manuevers they have successfully employed to sabotague FG H2O. Don't listen to someone else, find your own information to make your OWN decision. All The Best!

I read here quite often that people use hydrogen peroxide internally, but my husband who is a chemist says that I shouldn't use it as it is a dangerous chemical...... I don't know what to think anymore.... is it or isn't it?

Answer to Francisca from Michelbach-le-bas, Alsace, France


It's all a matter of concentration. The maximum recommended concentration of H2O2 for internal use is 0.5%. But even 1/10 of it is still beneficial. There are other ways also than internal.

This page http://curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=1586256#i has a lot of links to H2O2 articles.

It does not hurt to read about H2O2, and people may learn a few things.

Bonne chance

It is produced by the body naturally. Orange juice and honey actually metabolize into H202. In the US, it is common to treat water for consumption with Chlorine, which can be very dangerous in various strengths and forms. Still, it is used in treating drinking water and millions consume it every day.

I would say an excess of anything is not good. I am using 3 drops of 35% in 8 oz of water to keep my glucose level stable.

In Feb of 09, my glucose levels were at and above 500. I fasted and flushed and was still unable to get it below 300, where it remained... until after 3 doses as measured above. Coupled with my oral medications, my glucose levels dropped to the low normal range, my A1c was 6.8 and my triglyceride level was in the low category. The only thing I still had to work on was increasing my HDL and lowering my LDL, but my overall cholesterol was below 200.

The study confirms my actual results with h202. Until I spotted that, I had no idea HOW it was functioning to do what it was doing, only that it did. Now I know.

I watched my father die of complications of diabetes, and for me, it was an easy decision to go outside the box regarding my glucose control efforts. Good luck and best regards.

H2O2 dosing Schedule?

I can't seem to find the dosing schedule for the H2O2. I want to put my father on it because his natural doctor has told him that he is living on his own toxic waste. Then my father asked me a funny question that I'll share with ya'll - He said "If this peroxide stuff cleans up all my toxic waste, am I going to starve to death?" I thought that was pretty funny! Anyway, I can't find the directions on how much he should take. Can somebody let me know how to use the diluted method, the 3%.


Replied by Alain

Answer to Sam from Edmonton: 3% peroxide is for external use. For internal use it should be 0.5% or below.

The ways to use H2O2 are:
1-External uses: Baths and body sprays
Alkalizing baths
Alkalizing foot baths
Alkalizing shower/spray from http://curezone.com/forums/am.asp?i=1009888
or http://www.curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=1533666#i

2-Bill Munro H2o2 inhalation method

3-Internal - orally method (see below)

4-Internal - intravenously

For external use it does not have to be food grade.
Moreless alkalizing baths and shower protocols use regular 3% h2o2.

For internal use, all articles I read do not recommend the use of pharma grade. It has to be diluted Food grade. Bill Munro use phama 3% in his inhalation method. However, I would prefer to use a 3% solution made with food grade H2O2 if it is available.

For dosages please read the Dosage section.

Where to buy? It depends on the country. See the Where to buy section below.

Here's the recommendation from Earthclinic's Ted from https://www.earthclinic.com/remedies/hydrogen_peroxide.html:

--Beginning of quote--
In the alternative health field, the maximum is actually 0.5% concentration. Actually and optimum H2O2 concentration was first determined in 1950s by Dr. Reginald Holman by implanting Walker 256 adenocarcinoma tumours. The drinking water for the rat used H2O2 optimum concentration needed to kill the tumors were about 0.45 percent.

Tumors completely disappeared in 15 to 60 days in rats. Of course a better way is to add 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda in the glass of 0.45% concentration of H2O2. This can be extended to treatment of almost any kinds of conditions, from virus, bacteria, microbial infections, pneumonia, tuberculosis, flu, etc. My own experience of using just baking soda (also increases the body's oxygen) and ascorbate vitamin C about three weeks for a small tumor to go into remission.

A more effective I think in the future of peroxide therapy is to add baking soda to the 0.45% concentration to normal drinking water since baking soda is alkaline and increases oxygen, while the peroxide furthers this natural increase.

This Hydrogen Peroxide thing has got me really confused. What is the shelf life of this product without stabilisers? I am told less than a month. If this is so you need to obtain it freshly made and in small quantities from a local lab. With the mail as slow as it is here...! Impossible to have. I have not been feeling great and tried Bill Munroe's inhalation technique. I can't say it did anything for me and absolutely no sensation in the mouth so I'm wondering if it is out of date even with a stabiliser( Coopers). Maybe I should set up a lab! Lugol's solution also is active for almost exactly one month so no use stocking up on that for the next nuclear accident!
