I have a question. I have read alot about H202 therapy and I understand dilution ratio's, but I just read in one of the articles that store bought distilled water isn't pure enough it has to be double distilled? Can boiling tap water for X amount of time make it pure enough? the article wasn't clear on this. I just bought 12% food grade H202 from a local health food store and want to get started asap. Someone please shed some light on the water quality to be used and if boiling water is safe. Many Thanks.

You also can use Spring water

Boiling water is not adequate. Personally I use a countertop distiller at home (from a wise company). The only problem I can think of with the store bought distilled water is the cheap thin plastic bottles which release chemicals very readily (PETE 1 - I use Pete 7 gallon jugs like the gib poland spring bottles are made of - some models use glass containers).

Hope this helps.

This might be a rethorical question- tell me does taking antioxidants makes the consumption of H2O2 USELESS? and does a high level of oxygen in your blood (a result of H2O2 consumption) negatively affects the T Cells as was indicated by one of the EC readers?

To Ben from Cape Town; Regarding T-Cell counts. I have just started experimenting with 35% orally. I am starting and stopping as I am having some stomach upset. I did four days of the drops as indicated (then stopped) and coincidentally had some lab work done at the same time. I had a 20% to 25% increase in my T-Cell count to my highest ever number (742) I have been following these numbers for 12 years. Obviously this is purely anecdotal and not scientific but it is inspiring me to find an answer to the upset stomach problem.

My question may appear to be stupid but, I would like to know what "T cell" is.

I have been following the protocol and am now up to 16 drops of 35% Food Grade 3 times a day. I have not noticed anything other than some boil-like eruptions are starting to show up on different parts of my body.

What can I do to prevent me from throwing up after taking H2O2?

EC: "T cells belong to a group of white blood cells known as lymphocytes, and play a central role in cell-mediated immunity."

the best thing you could do is make sure you take it at least 3 hours after you eat. It always makes me queezy even when i think about taking it. Mind over matter. it works. i havent thrown up before but have felt like it many times. remember if you do throw it up then you have to take it again.

i also got boils. but they went away and havent come back in years now.

keep it up.

This is to thank EC for answering my question on T cells and to thank Matthew for his advice. "Mind over matter" really works.

Hydrogen Peroxide and DMSO

In the book "DMSO: Nature's Healer by Dr. Morton Walker (who acknowledges Dr.William C.Douglass, H202 advocator, in page vii), I read the following:

"If superoxide anions are present in quantity as a result of ecological alteration such as radiation toxicity, water pollution, chemotherapy, or other stressors, the body's ability to detoxify is affected. Instead, superoxide, and superoxide dismutase form hydrogen peroxide. Lipid peroxidation takes place. More hydroxyl radicals develop and bring on cellular damage with degenerative disease. DMSO offsets these effects and brings the body back to a more normal state."

"Free radical pathology is an intrincate part of virtually every metabolic dysfuction you can think of. To illustrate, cancer manufactures prodigious quantities of hydrogen peroxide, which then generate the hydroxyl radical. This is probably part of the reason why DMSO has proved to be valuable in the treatment of cancer."

*Bolds are mine.

I am very concerned because H202 is supposed to cure cancer. I don't understand. Does cancer manufactures its own hydrogen peroxide? Is hydrogen peroxide a danger in our blood and cells? It is nonsense.

I am taking hydrogen peroxide by inhalation right now. I have been following the advices of many physicians who advocate this molecule, including Dr.Williams.

Could you please give me an explanation? Am I misunderstanding something?

Thank you so much in advance for your help.

Best regards,

ACV and 35% H2O2: Can you take them both during the same time period?

Replied by Bob
(Memphis, TN)

I am currently taking both ACV and 35% food grade h202 and have had no problems. The only problem is if you do one right after the other you might feel a little bloated.

To update those interested in the h202 therapy: I am on day 32 and up to 21 drops 3x daily. I couldn't even tell I was taking it until I got to about 12 drops 3x a day. At around 20 drops it starts tasting really metallic and is easier to get down if you hold your nose and just gulp it. It is one of those tastes kind of like medicine that really makes you shiver when you take it. It even makes you shiver when you "think" about taking it. Anyway, the side effects for me are really just I am sweating a lot, especially when I go workout at the gym. I am also much hotter than I normally am. I'm not a heavy person and usually the late 70's and early 80's in temperature feel good to me and I don't turn on the a/c until it gets in somewhere in the mid 80's. Those are the only things I have experienced.

Good luck!

Some people are referring to H2O2 simply as water. This is wrong!! H2O is water(2 molecules of Hydrogen and 1 molecule of Oxygen). H2O2 is Hydrogen Peroxide (2 molecules of each).

I am intrested in inhaling H202 and have question for experts out there. The part of the world where I live I could only find 6% H2O2 and now wondering how can I dilute the same to 3% H2O2.

To Johnny fr. Capo Bch., If you want to injest the Hydrogen Per. then you will need the 35% (food grade) only. It's the only type safe for ingesting. You can mix the 35% (3-4 drops) with Distilled water, and drink daily. Otherwise, for any other purpose you can use the drugstore type such as you have. The drugstore type is not safe for injesting, OK?!

You can find the 35%, Food Grade type at the following: { www.h2o2oxytech.com }. Click on the upper left of the home page, find the retailer near you! For additional info, and more complete & conclusive understanding of H-202, and applications of this Amazing Product, see the Book Called "Flood Your Body with Oxygen", by Ed McCabe.
To your health, Sam!

I am having trouble understanding the H2O2 Therapy-some say 3% in bath, some say 6%-7% Food Grade, some say 35% but indicate danger. I have been into "Orthomolecular Medicine" for 30 years.

I am taking all the major vitamins and minerals including-ginseng, aloe vera, ginger, hawthorne, turmeric curcumin, ginseng, bilberry, butchers broom, fengreek, 2ala's, chromium, garlic, bromlein, l-carnosine, coq10, bee pollen, calcium magnesium, potasium, flax seed, acidophilus, l-glutamine, worm wood, lecithin, grapeseed extract, selenium, zinc, glucosamine chondroitin, pancreatin, pau d' arco, l-argine, l-ornithine, l-lysine (I vary what I take).

I have had Candida for 20 years, now diabeties, angina, hardening of the arteries. Bluntly - H2O2 Seems the safest however there is much confusion about the correct dosage to take and the percentage of peroxide. Appreciate your prompt assistance in advance.

Dear D. Barwood, and all others on this site with so many questions,

There is much confusion on this site about the H-202, and the percentages and how to apply or injest. I just finished reading the Most intelligently written book on H-202, called "Flood Your Body with Oxygen", by Ed McCabe. Read 1st, chapter 9, it will answer all your questions, specifically, to each of you, on all applications of H-202, orally/topically and the Power of H-202, Oxygen for your body!!!
Go to: www.oxygenhealth.com

To all the mis-informed, so called experts, and uneducated people who call this all nonsence, Oxygen & Water is in the H-202, and Oxygen is what your body runs on everyday, the minute you stop your Oxygen intake, How long do you think you'll survive?? Disease CANNOT SURVIVE IN AN OXYGENATED BODY! Therefore, when you ingest Extra Oxygen, H-202, food grade, (35%) diluted to 3% in (Distilled Water Only) IT WILL KILL ALL BACTERIA, FUNGUS, VIRUS, PARASITES, YEAST, EXPELS TOXINS OUT OF THE BODY , AND DOES NOT KILL HEALTHY CELLS !!!

Listen Up PLEASE: The peroxisomes are areas in our cells programmed to make hydrogen peroxide. The white blood cells engulf bacteria, viruses, or other unwanted invaders and squirt hydrogen peroxide on them. They simply burn up, or oxidize, the offending microorganism! That's your immune system in Action! The very fact that all your cells make Peroxide defines this process as your first line of immune defense. But, You must have enough Oxygen in your system to make it in the first place.

The peroxisomes make our peroxide continually, but normal healthy cells are left unharmed! This is Extremely Important for You to grasp, for it is the reason we can put Oxygen Therapies into our bodies without hurting the normal cells.

PEROXIDE: CALLED Oxygen Water, Dioxogen, Alphozone & Hydrozone.

For the past 100 years in America, people have tried imbibing or orally ingesting diluted solutions of pure H-202. They diluted it in distilled water and drank it. This old folk remedy that goes back to the 18th century has a remarkable ability to kill bacteria, and is unique in its simplicity. This information about the power of H-202, has been written about in the Medical Journals by Doctors in the US back in the early 1920's. Thousands of reports have been written about the Doctors success in treating their patients with diluted Hydrogen Peroxide!

I have been using this wonderful product myself for the last 2 yrs, with great success!!! I have not had a cold, flu, nor any other issue. In fact if I get a headache I just take a glass of water (distilled) with 35% (about 5-6 drops) of H.P. in my water, drink it, and headache gone. I also place the H-202 in my water when I exercise and have excellent energie in my workouts. I also place diluted 35% H.P. (in distilled water) in a spray bottle and spray on any area of pain in my body, spray several times per day, and with great results. OXYGEN IN THE BODY, OR APPLIED TO THE SKIN, HEALS!!!!!!!!

1. Never mix the Hydrogen Per. with any other liquid other than Distilled Water if taking orally!
2. For oral use to irradicate whatever issue in your body, Always Start Slowly, example;
start with distilled water 4-5 once, and 3 drops 35% H.P. 3x p/day, then increase by one drop every other day, you will notice as time passes that you will feel cleansing reactions such as, a cold, or a rash in a previously injured area, or loose stools, or a fever. The cleansing reaction means the oxygen has hit the spot where you start burning up, or oxidizing, or destroying the bacteria, the viruses, the fungus, and the pathogens.

If the cleansing symptoms are too harsh slow down the dosage of H-202 intake for a week of so and then start to increase dosage again, accordingly.

Always use Caution & Common sense. Read the Book mentioned above first, and educate yourself!

3. Always, (when taken orally, the water with H.P. take One Hour before a meal, and one hr. after.
4. NEVER, just Stop taking the H-202 in water suddenly, you must decrease your drops slowly each day and then just take a few drops 4-5 p/day for maintenance..., if you STOP suddenly you will experience that your body has not finished it's cleansing and will give you other symptoms. Taking the H-202 orally, high amounts, for issues should be taken for a period of 2-3mos as your body will experience a cleansing and it needs that time to clean itself out!
5. Wear gloves when handling the 35% H.P., as it can burn/irritate your skin.
6. Never, Ever, take the H-202 anywhere near your eyes, it will cause major damage.




Remember, the H-202 by itself cannot do it all, one also needs to eat a healthy menu, ie;
lots of fruit, vegetables, chicken, fish, drink lots of water and stay away from sugars, boxed food, fast food, dairy..., and BREATHE MORE OXYGEN, YOUR BODY WILL LOVE YOU!!!

**I do hope this has been helpful for many of you! I wanted to return the favor to "TED", and say "Thank You TED" for a wonderful site, with much wisdom! This site has given me so much and has opened my eyes and helped me to see a hidden Secret!!
God Bless All of You,

I take 2 teaspoons of 3% hydrogen peroxide in a half glass of cranberry/raspberry juice per day. This is equivalent to 16 drops of 35% h202. Goes down real well, no side effects, no stomach problems.

My question is, am I reducing the effects of h202, releasing 02 by mixing the h202 in juice instead of water? btw, sometimes i have taken 3 teaspoons of 3% h202 in a glass of cran/rasp juice, with no ill effects. (equivalent to 24 drops of 35% h202)! Need your inputs.

If the goal of peroxide therapy is to flood the body with oxygen, would an oxygen machine given for bronchitis work just as well? Thank you!

My name is Martin, write from Bilbao, Spain (Europe). Many thanks Earth Clinic and Ted by your valuable activity about spread folk remedies and contribute to wellfare of the persones and the living being. Shorry but my english is no very good. In spanish language almost no spread these informations about ACV and H2O2. For me, the Apple Cider Vinegar is wonderfull by its capacity for detoxification and antiseptic cuality. The correct use amount of Hidrogen Peroxide (food grade H2O2) may be a fine complement by its hability to revitalize the body increasing oxigen on cells. There are experiencies in the folk remedies area for the combination of ACV and H2O2? I know what on the metabolic terapy area, some doctors are using chelation therapy with intravenous EDTA (ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid) on cleaning the body of harmful chemical substances, intravenous hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is used in combination with the chelation "quelox" to increase their effectiveness. These treatments are radicals and no exempts risks, demand make its under medical control. Though more cheaps than conventional medicine treatments, continue still enough expensive for many people. Thanks. Bless for you. Mart

I'm still skeptical about using over the counter hydrogen peroxide for internal use. I read the label and it did say distilled water but it also said this contains stabilizers do not ingest. I've read on the site that many people are using the stuff anyway. I can't find 35% food grade around here. I have my daughter rinsing with peroxide and her gums are looking so much better, less redness. Do most of you all really use the walmart brand of hydrogen peroxide with no problems and if so how long have you used it? I'm talking about inhaling it and also using the drops in water.

L from colorado. The only place you are going to find 35% food grade Hydrgen peroxide is in a health store or on the web. You will not find it at walmart, or in any drug store. I found 35% in 3 health stores here in Ohio and it was like $16.00 for a quart. I looked everywere and that is were i found it. so good luck.

Someone in comments on H2O2 asked where there is more information on HP. Dr William C Douglas, M.D. has a book entitled, "Hydrogen Peroxide Medical Miracle" I am not associated with the DR. His book is excellent, someone told me it is available on line as ebook.
