Hello, I've been drinking H202 for about 5 months. I am a 42 yr old male in good health except I've injured my low back over the years and several other minor injuries. I had been taking cyclobenzaprene regularly over the past 2 years(mainly for muscle spasms)and medical dose Naproxen regularly, prescribed by my VA Dr. (the VA loves to give out pain pills and are not focused on cures. Whatever costs less. I'm very thankful though that I have this medical resource. )

A friend of mine wrote an ebook on how his father-in-law beat COPD & emphysema in six weeks with h202. This was over 20 years ago and he is still alive also he continued to smoke. This is who I learned of H202 from. I put 15 drops of 35% in 6 oz of apple cider and drink. I first did the drop treatment for six weeks but only once a day. I don't do it daily even and Wow-I don't have to take the pills anymore. The achiness and early arthritic soreness in my body that I've felt for a number of years is Gone. No more muscle spasms either. Hallelujah

Distilled water is poisonous. Use filtered water instead. You only need water without Cl.


Distilled water is the best water you can drink. You've been taken for a Tennessee boat ride:



I've been drinking it for 30 plus years and I'm fine.

To Ender from Robertsdale , Al. Why would you say that distilled water is poisonous? This is false. I have been drinking about 3 liters of distilled water per day for the last 18 years(since 1992). Filtering water only removes SOME of the contaminants but steam distilling water removes a lot more. Distilled water is said to leach out some minerals but who does't want unhealthy things leached out of their bodies as long as they regularly add back in the healthy life-promoting minerals and trace elements with good nutrition and supplementation.

Jay, what kind of distiller would you recommend? or do you use? I trust Dr. Weil's view that distilled water is fine.. (what he drinks) and that we get most of our minerals from
The foods we eat. Also, one can always add minerals to the distilled water if they are concerned.

What about using mineral water instead of distilled water to dilute stabilizer- free 3% hydrogen peroxide?

Hi everyone,

Distilled water is just that, distilled water. I buy mine from the garage next door, in the 5 liter format. They use it for batteries. It's distilled water. Don't get too hung up worrying about the water issue. I've used distilled water with no problems whatsoever.

You could even use the water from a dehumidifier if you wanted.

If you use mineral water with H2o2 you must be certain it contains no iron, apparently they don't mix too well and abdominal pain can result.

I just read a post where Ted said not to use HP with ACV, that it will negate some of the good effects of the ACV. He said it should be taken 6 hours apart. It was on the "Remedy Combinations" page.

To : Valetta, Malta - you stated: "You could even use the water from a dehumidifier if you wanted."

That is very dangerous. Water from a dehumidifier is condensate which is different than distillate. Water from a dehumidifier has been condensed out of the air and with it any airborne particles, bacteria, molds, and or viruses. Distilled water has been boiled in a closed system (no dust or air born particles) and then cooled to be condensed. So while the physics is the same, the outcome is quite different.

Never drink water from a dehumidifier.

Just my 2 cents -

Ciao! Cosmo

That's awesome Sean! I love it when people can cure themselves with such simple measures. I am struggling a little bit with arthritis at the moment and am getting a lot of muscle spasms. From what I've read so far I'm thinking it is a lack of magnesium that causes the spasms. Although I'm not so sure now. Was ACV and H202 the only treatment you took?

I'm going to start on this h202 today and will report back what I find.

Replied by Scott H

While distilled water is not poisonous, it is unstable compared to water that has a broad spectrum of minerals in solution. In the absence of any minerals water tends to be much more aggressive, especially to satisfy its need for hardness (primarily calcium and magnesium). If you are on a steady diet of distilled water, you increase your chances of developing a calcium deficiency because water will keep seeking calcium until it reaches 100 - 250 ppm. If you are taking calcium supplements along with distilled water, plan on absorbing none of that calcium until the water you are drinking has been stabilized at that level of calcium.

Replied by Richard

Distilled water is not poisonous. If that was the only water you consumed, it could leach minerals from you body but drinking a few glasses of distilled water everyday is not going to harm anybody. Lets get serious here. Let's not promote rumors created by those who are clueless.

My question is about Hydrogen Peroxide. I have had my mother on the Therapy for 17 days now, and she is up to 17 drops in her 8oz glass of water. Today, after having her drink this morning, she vomited a lot of thick mucus 10 minutes after drinking? Is this normal? The water is distilled, in an 8oz glass, 17 drops. I'd like to know how to proceed? Should she continue on the drops, decrease the dosage? She has been using this for "Arthritis". Thanks.

Replied by Lisa

Personally, I have never used the food grade hydrogen peroxide, only the 3% that you can get from the store. I did the regimen of adding a drop a day for about 3 weeks as I seemed to have a lot of mucus problems. In Chinese medicine it is well known that phlegm can wreak absolute havoc throughout the body and is what can cause arthritis and body pain. I know that there have been times when that was the only way the amount of mucus that needed to come out came out! Perhaps that was what your mom experienced. I'm curious if it seems to be helping to reduce the arthritic pain. I know I felt a lot of relief in my lungs, sinuses, body pain and stomach upon reducing the phlegm. Periodically, I will consciously do a regimen for just this. I hope this helps.

Thank you Lisa,

My mother's pain stopped the second day after she was on the therapy. She has not had any kind of symptoms until this morning when she vomitted. So, I was not knowing how I should proceed. I have read elsewhere on this site that it may be just the toxins leaving the body. All I can say right now is I believe definitely that the hydrogen peroxide is the reason that my mother is not in pain like she was 17 days ago. She could barely walk, and was in excruciating pain all over (shoulders, lower back, arms, legs, and numbness in her feet) she has none of these symptoms now. The only thing was the vomit this morning.

Warning!! store bought 3% Hydrogen Peroxide.

You must have 35% FOOD GRADE. Food Grade is free of chemical binders and other junk molecules that are put is the 3% H2O2's sold over the counter at pharmacies and grocery stores.

EC: Per Ted (found in the introductory section of hydrogen peroxide):

Ted from Bangkok writes, "There is a simple way to see if Hydrogen Peroxide contains stabilizers: Pour 1/2 cap of hydrogen peroxide in a glass of water. If the color has yellow (or other off colors), it has a stabilizer. It is best to set it out in the sun where it is easier to see. If the H202 remains colorless when mixed in a glass of water, it usually does not have a stabilizer.

Almost all H2O2 sold in drug stores will have stabilizers, actually to discourage people to use them internally. So you can use this as a way to compare them. Basically, H2O2 poured into a clean glass and left out in a sun covered by a dish should not have air bubbles. If it does, there are metal contaminants. If you are asking for trouble, a drop of ammonia solution in H2O2 mixed in water will cause a rapid air bubble generation. It is more unstable if it has stabilizers. You can try the experiment and compare the results.

The test for this is not perfect one, but the key is the color, even when you add just a small amount of water in direct sunlight. Also, a good quality H2O2 doesn't get small bubbles during storage.

By the way, an easy way to test the quality of your drinking water is to add 10% of 3% H2O2 to 90% Water and perform the test by noticing air bubbles. If there are a lot of air bubbles for the next 6 hours, then the water has either too much organic residues OR heavy metals. During the test please keep in places AWAY from children. After the test immediately discard the contents into the sink. Ted"

Lisa from Thousand Oaks, Ca Oh man, really the ones they sell over the counter may contain bad levels of other stuff.. look at the site first page it tells you how to test your HP for metals and such, you can be doing more harm then good using over the counter HP

Replied by Katherine

is it safe to ingest the 3% brand or is there a 3% foodgrade hydrogen peroxide

Is it safe to buy the 3% hydrogen from a pharmacy to ingest?

Replied by Richard

You have got to be joking. Why would you even risk using 3% off the shelf HP? One quart of 35% HP is One quart contains about 19,000 drops, enough to last the average person several years.

Is there a problem paying from $10 to $20 for a quart of HP that will last you for several years? I guess it all depends how low of a price you put on your life. If you used 12 drops a day, a quart would last 4 years and 4 months. At $20 a quart that works out to $4.60 per year. At $10 a quart it would be $2.30 per year. Certainly not worth the risk to use the cheap stuff because even the best HP is still cheap, less than 10 cents per week. I certainly hope that wouldn't break your bank!

You've got to be joking, Get off of Lisa's back! I have 2 jumbo containers of Topical Solution Hydrogen Peroxide, it also says “oral debriding agent for use as a gargle or rinse”. Ingredients Hydrogen Peroxide 3% and Purified Water. Two different companies same ingredients Walgreens and Walmart. Guess what without stabilizers the O2 evolves out over time and you will have to buy more ... Companies like that. But if you are a small company trying to spread the good word about the healing value of common household products you might find a Peroxide product or 2 with “stabilizers” and emphasize that in your presentation so you can have some cash flow and thus continue to preach practical good health to the masses.

I just reviewed 5 different 3% Topical Hydrogen Peroxide's on Amazon all of them had the same ingredient listing Purified water and Hydrogen Peroxide. Also odds are very good that those “stabilizers” you are so frightened of, if you can find them, are already in your diet elsewhere but you shamed poor Lisa for nothin.

I have been reading and researching for the last few weeks about the many cures of Hydrogen Peroxide 35% Food Grade. I purchased a bottle and had my mother start with the treatment 1 drop in an 8 ounce glass of water 3 times a day, increasing the drops by one drop each day. She is now up to 5 drops as of today, and will be on her 6th drop tomorrow morning. My mother has been suffering from severe artritis for many years, but over the last year it has gotten to the point where she could barely walk. So let me tell you that as of today 9-24-2009, since starting this therapy of oral ingestion 5 days ago, she is not complaining at all of the pain in her lower back, left shoulder, wrist or leg areas. My mother said the only thing she feels now is stiffness in the back of her leg (knee area), but its starting to loosen up. I can tell by looking at how she walks now compared to last week, that it is working for real, It is still early, but I have to say that I am shocked!

Today as I was talking to her, she told me that the feeling in her toes have returned, she didn't bother to mention this to any of my siblings or myself until I was asking her how she has been feeling, since I got her started on the Hydrogen Peroxide 35% diluted with the dropper in 8 ounces of water. By the way my mother is 85 years old. I don't know what to expect as we continue with this therapy, but I have to say I'm thankful for a site like this, and all the information that I have read online here, and all the readily available information on the internet. I will update as I continue to watch my mother's progress. Thank you again!

I'm age 76, have basically avoided doctors for about 45 years now, as I know they never get to the CAUSE of any of our ailments. I learned about right nutrition and fasting as a natural route to healing if I had any problems, and that has basically been adequate. Until a couple months ago when I developed what I suppose was arthritic PAIN in my left shoulder/elbow/wrist/ hand...and I'm left-handed! And it would keep me miserable enough I couldn't sleep, and I couldn't seem to shake it by what I knew to do. I didn't really want to fast at length, as in recent years I'm skinnier (5'3" and about 115): people ask too many questions and besides, it's uncomfortable not to have enough padding on your bones! (been there/done that) So, I prayed, and I believe it was God who showed me info about taking peroxide. I did quite a bit of research on it and was convinced it was a valid route to go. I began 12 days ago (continuing) with just ONE cautious drop, then TWO DROPS the next morning (after that I went to 3 drops 3x a day, and building up)...and to my amazement about a couple hours after I took those two drops, I realized ALL that pain I had suffered with for WEEKS was GONE. Wow. Is that fantastic, or what?! And it hasn't come back.

I'm continuing because I saw that the peroxide has a cleansing effect much like the fasting does, except I don't have to lose weight in the process. I have a few little matters that I mostly ignored because they don't HURT (nothing like some pain for motivation to change!!)....so decided to deal with them via the peroxide. I have a slight bit of tinnitus (which I mostly don't think about, but it's there so could get worse?), my eyesight (I wear reading glasses), my hearing (I miss some conversation), my BRAIN (ach! "senior moments" are not funny, really)...might the peroxide help in those????? I'm hoping! :-)

A couple days ago I had some cold symptoms develop, ( a LOT of sneezing and MUCH clear nasal discharge) which I know were just to be expected...but I seem to be past that. I have a couple questions!? About day nine I was nauseous after taking the peroxide in the morning, so thought to put four drops of my orange-flavored liquid stevia in each time, is that OK? Some places said use juice or milk, but other places said just water, and I hate to go through all this and not have it as effective as possible! AND for a while now I have put sea salt at the rate of a teaspoon per gallon of drinking water, as that is what Dr. Batmanghelidge says we need...is that OK with the peroxide? (He didn't say put it in drinking water; that was my idea since I don't like to salt my food much...and the water doesn't taste salty, just good) I'm using reverse osmosis water by the gallon from our local health store. I'm thinking of getting a reverse osmosis system for under my kitchen sink: they seem reasonable in price. Can anyone un-confuse me about the 3/4/5 phase systems in them, which is adequate?? I'll let y'all know how this peroxide regimen treats me in days ahead! I do believe my brain is slightly more clear already. :-) Oh, and I have for years had irregular sleep (I hate to call it insomnia)...hope maybe that is a problem the peroxide might help. Am I expecting miracles?! Well, that arthritic pain gone in two days was a miracle, wasn't it?!

2/16/2009: Jean from Somerset, KY writes, "I have another question. I read we should build up gradually to taking the peroxide AND decrease gradually, but I haven't read WHY the gradual decrease. What would happen if some morning I am tempted to think, I CAN'T DO THIS ONE MORE DAY!! (??) I might deal with that thought better if know ahead of time why I should and can decrease gradually???"

To Jean fr. KY.
NEVER, just Stop taking the H-202 in water suddenly, you must decrease your drops slowly each day, just like you Increase one drop each day to a desired amount, until you reach your goal & have results. Then just take a few drops 4-5 p/day for maintenance. For example, if you increase your intake to 10 or more drops several times p/day or even more than that, then you will slowly decrease drops each day till you get to 1-3 drops, and then you can stop.

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 process and it needs that time line to clean itself out! If you do not give your body ample time 2-3 mos. for the complete cleansing, your liver will have problems. Your LIVER is the garbage disposal, as well as your kidneys, and colon, so as your body receives the High doses of H-202 daily, your body is ridding its cells of all the toxins; fungus, bacteria, viruses, metals, all the pollutants, etc..., and healing itself, and in so doing , it dispels all the gunk into your liver, kidneys, and colon, then it will do a final elimination normally in the bathroom, and also as your body sweats.

Therefore, if your body is not given ample time to Detox, and Eliminate, because you stop your intake of H-202 from High doses to O, now you'll have a problem, all the gunk will be left in your Liver, Kidneys, or worse, in your Colon, now you may end up with another problem..., Do You Understand??!! I SURE HOPE SO.

To Jean from Somerset, KY or anyone who may have used probiotics while ingesting Hydrogen Peroxide: I have had Rheumatoid Arthritis for about 2 years now and I'm just starting my regime of Hydrogen Peroxide 3% food grade (until I get my order of 35% food grade) and would like to know what else you are taking to keep your body in balance such as probiotics, selenium or Vitamin C, anything for your stomach to protect it from an ulcer? Also, has anyone ever been on antibiotics while ingesting Hydrogen Peroxide? Today is my first day and the dosage that I'm currently taking with the 3% fg is 11 drops in 8 oz. Of pure water (Reverse osmosis) 3x a day for the first day and increasing 11 drops 3x each day...... When I get my 35% fg I will then cut it down to the correct dosage. Thank you, Sharon

I have understood that you do not or must not consume the 3% HP as it has stabilizers in it which are what makes it unfit to drink and some say poisonous but I guess it depends on how much of the stuff you might consume. I have not found any type of 3% HP which is free of stabilizers but have quickly located the 35% Foodgrade HP here in Columbia, SC and am taking it. Possibly you have discovered some 3% which is foodgrade. Anyway, I dilute it into water, juice, coffee, etc. And drink it that way... Usually 8 drops twice a day as that is what I have worked up to. One person was saying to dilute it to a 3% solution and then drip it into a drink... But, NO, you take the straight 35% stuff and drip it into at least 3-5 oz. (more may be better) of liquid as the liquid becomes your diluting medium if you get my 'drift'. It's way too darned strong otherwise and might do bad things to your health. I am still detoxing and can not say exactly what all it is doing for me at this point. Hope this helps.


Hi, concerning the HP3%. First of all, you cannot buy 35% anymore online. You can buy 3% food grade HP. That is not the same as a 3% sold at the grocery store. Please understand that.

Aqua purificada means purified, cleansed. I did pour the h2o2 in to the clean glass and hold on the sun for an hour, to see quality of h2o2. I, ve got some very miniscule air bubles on the botom of the glass. Should I start to take this kind (and only kind ) of H2O2 for my body cleansing ? Any other sugestions?

Hello Anyone, I, too, have an artificial joint (hip, May 2010) and have wondered the same thing. EC is the best I've found for reliable information! I spend hours every day researching health related questions (no TV :). The only negative thing found concerning H2O2 therapy is if you have had an organ transplant. The results of increased immunologic responses from the body could cause rejection of the organ. Thus far nothing found concerning artificial joints. The closest positive so far is that H2O2 will aid in strengthening bones. The most important thing you can do is to maintain an alkaline diet: ditch the fast foods and prepackaged stuff. Learn to cook/prepare a real, live food diet "a la grandmother. " There are a host of sites to research that will help, just be careful, read and read and learn the truth! I'll be trying the therapy whilst carefully monitoring.

My 10yr old son who wheezes with breathing in cold air had an attack and seemed to worsen as the day progressed. Labored breathing with wheezing sounds scary. I already had a nebulizer machine in the house from years past using albuterol mixtures. I placed about 1/3 cup of water in a separate container and one drop of 35% food grade H202. Stirred it and then filled to capacity the nebulizer holding cup. After about 20 minutes he seemed to breath alot easier but not 100% to normal. He slept for an hour then was able to get up and guess what? No heavy breathing! A little wheezing but not as much as before. I was hesitant to try the H2O2 as so many precautions and warnings. I'm glad I only put one drop into a separate container with more water. One drop in the nebulizer cup (about 2 tablespoons capacity) would have been way too much.

In response to your post, I also have asthma. I developed it over a period of a few months and had to deal with changing my lifestyle. I was 20 yrs. old and a runner who could no longer breathe. Walking up a flight of stairs made me wheeze and cough until I was red faced and struggling. After surgery on my sinuses, several medications and steroids, I was no better and my doctors were puzzzled. I finally read about H202 and I also tried it in my nebulizer. I did a 50/50 mixture with regular store bought peroxide (as this is actually safer because food grade is very strong), and after two days of using this mixture, I could breathe, run, and smell unlike I could before. (I also suffer sever allergies that take away my sense of smell.) One week later I went for a check-up with my asthma specialist and my lung function had improved from 64% to 92%!!! I was not surprised though because I felt the changes. I still have to keep up with treating myself with H202 or else my symptoms begin to come back, but I am healthier and happier than before. H202 gave me back my life.

Its true that undiluted 35% FGHP is dangerous if handled or ingested. That's why you must dilute it to a 3% solution. And that's easy enough to accomplish its just an 11 to 1 ratio. So 11 ounces of distilled water to 1 ounce FGHP will give you a 3% solution.

I would like to warn you against using 1% or 3% solutions found at your local pharmacy. They contain harmful stabilizers. Stabilizers are added to give Peroxide a longer shelf life since FGHP will lose potency at approx 1% per year. These stabilizers include chemicals like Acetanilide that are an irritant and can make your asthma worse over time. And there are no studies that document what ingested Acetanilide does to the body. Its best to just get the pure stuff that we know is good for you.

I agree with mink, you must dilute 35% to 3% and by the time you add more distilled water the concentration is about 0.5% which is what was used to kill cancers in rats in 1950.

Hey guys I have been on Antibiotic 6 times this year out of 120 days And not just Antibiotics but Steroid packs plus steroid shots, A week later it starts all over again. I was on my last dose of Antibiotics and steroids for 20 days with a nebilizer 3 times a day plus inhalers, I am only 45 and I want to live I feel like I am dying a slow death. The doctor told me last week when I got really bad there is nothing he can do for the Sinusitus and the infection in my lungs and body nothing is touching it. From desperate measures not being able to breath I dilluted the Hydogen Peroxide put it in my nebilizer, have been trying it up my nose, along with Sea Salt for releif to open up a passage way to breathe, I have been bathing in it and I have a bad sore throat and I still have major amounts of thick, thick mugas and infection coming up. Can someone tell me is this normal ?

I am trying the inhalations with the nasal spray bottle I still have a labored breathing issues going on this is my 3rd day I am not dead yet so I figure something is working just not sure if I am missing something or if there is more I can do I so badly need my nasal passages and lungs cleared once and for all. How long will this take me ? I have changed my diet taken out all whites flours, breads, Dairy Ect and sugars. Using ACV 3 times a day. I need HELP any one out there that has tried and what I can do.

Hi Rebecca -

My heart goes out to you. I used to have allergy asthma years ago, with the inhaler and the whole fun bronchitis thing to go with it every year. It finally cleared up, and I really have no idea why. Not being able to get a deep breath is scary, and a horrible way to live.

You might want to look up "Linus Pauling and Vitamin C" in a search engine. I have never tried the HP thing, but it seems to me you have an inflamitory process from hell going on, and massive doses of vitamin C are where I would go first. I would be taking it until I had to run to the bathroom, and then back off. At least 1, 000 mg 3-4 times a day. This is just my opinion, and I am not a doctor.... This is just something I thought you might want to try /read about.

Also~ I would look up the anti-inflamitory diet, and the anti-inflamitory properties of omega-3 fatty acids as well.

Lastly ~If I were you I would go to the doctor and get blood work done to see what my C reactive protein readings are. The C-RAP level will tell you how much inflamation you have going on in your body.

Good Luck. :-)

Rebecca, I would go off dairy and gluten (not just white flours and suger).

The antibiotics and steroids you are on probably have damaged your gut. Research "Leaky Gut". I feel like I am repeating myself (I just feel strongly about the book) but you should look into the book Gut & Phychology Syndrome. Steroids also weaken your immune system badly.

My son has bad asthma issues but when I took dairy and gluten away from his his breathing issues cleared miraculously. For the first time he was wheeze free and even stopped grinding his teeth in his sleep.

Ted and those that have responded to my Post before I knew I was getting bad, I ended up going to to the Emergency Room and they kept me for 10 days they ran every test on me possible my oxygen level was very low in the 87-88 range and this is why they kept me in the bed for 10 days on oxygen running every test they could telling me I didnt' match any book they had. They sent me home with my Oxygen finally reaching 92-93 they could not figure out what was going on with my body.

I am totally convinced if it was not for the healthy things I have learned and was doing prior to going to ER and I was just so bad and allowed it to get out of control AND I know I wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for this site. So, they did a scope through the nasal in the left lower lube of the lung and through through the mouth into the lower Right lobe they told me they didn't know what they were going to find they did biopsy and tested everything but they came back with nothing everything was negative, They said there was mucus plugs in the lower lobes of the lungs and that my blood work was perfect, My Heart, Lungs, Spleen, Kidneys, Liver, Thyroid everything functioned as if I was a 25 yr. Athletic adult and I am severely 85 lbs over weight from all the steroids they have had me on the last 3 yrs. and they couldn't understand how my Blood pressure, cholesterol, Sugar, and Inflammation levels in my body were better than most normal.

They sent me home after pumping me full of steroids, And so many antibiotics for 10 days it has taken all I can do just to build my strength back up every day has been a challenge for me. The Docotrs said the only thing they could figure out is that I have Chronic sinusitis disease that leads to allergy induced asthma which cuts down my oxygen level when I allow it to get out of control.

So, I am just starting to get my strength back ever day and I just started take 1/2 cup fresh garlic every day, ACV 3 times a day, and all so I am doing the 3 salt water cleanses every day and I want to do whatever else is necessary to go aggresively after my sinus and get this under control along with working on the extra weight I am carrying around. I want to try the Hydrogen Peroxide food grade I need directions on and whatever else I need to do but I need HELP and I know that today the reason I am alive is because of what I have learned from your site PLEASE help to direct me on what I need to do to regain my life back 100%.

We are having good results for sinuses/lungs/itchy nose, anything breathing related with this: putting a squirt of plain HP into half a cup of water. Gargle with it and then, before spitting out, breathe thru it with your mouth open a few times.

The first time I heard about 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide was during a visit with an old man (84 years), but who walked with the gait of a 20 year old! He credited this to the use of the above-mentioned H2O2.

For the last few years I have been tormented by aches and pains in the lower back that gave me sleepless nights and great difficulty in just getting up out of bed in the mornings. I can not understate this fact...it was getting to the point where I was seriously thinking about having to leave my career.

Anyhow, to make a long story short, the fifth day after taking the hydrogen peroxide program as recommended in the book by Dr. W. Douglass, I woke up to find that I could literally bounce out of bed! I was so happy I had to dance around the bedroom! My back pains are perhaps 50% of what they were before, but at least the joints are pain free now. I'll continue on the program for some time more, but up to now, this stuff sure has worked like a miracle for me!

Thanks for your interest, Kevin! Been a while since I've been to this site. To answer your question, I am still bouncing out of bed every morning, although I still have some trace of backache from time to time. Having said that, I also must admit that I do not take the H2o2 very often anymore, maybe once or twice a week between 5-8 drops in a glass of water...my maintenance dose, as I call it. Overall, my general health is very good! Cheers! Marty

I had stinky breath that nothing would help, I did work in a steel mill and AC work and the smell was coming from my lungs, mold or fungus was what I thought it was. What I did that helped a lot more than just the breath, 3% Hydrogen peroxide diluted by 3:1 by distilled water in a house hold atomizing hand sprayer. I put the sprayer on the finest mist setting and breathed the mist, I didn't swallow any, spitting out what was left in my mouth, I breathed the aspirated diluted peroxide. within a day, no more smell and I breathed better. I'm 68.

A science teacher recommended this to me years ago and I've been doing it ever since. Hydrogen Peroxide is a great mouthwash. It kills the bacteria in your mouth which the cause of bad breath. Also brightens your teeth a bit. I take a swig of 3%, swirl it around my mouth for a min or so, spit it out and wallah, breath is fresh.

Rinsing with hydrogen peroxide on a regular basis can cause black hairy tongue. Google it. It's a really gross condition where your tongues papilla become infected, elongated and discolored.... And the main cause is regular use of mouth rinse containing peroxide. There are natural mouth rinses available if you dont like listerine. Don't be cheap and risk getting something gross like black hairy tongue.

Mouth rinse 'containing' hydrogen peroxide? And pray, what else do they contain? There are elements hydrogen peroxide shouldn't be mixed with, but who is to say it is the HP that causes this issue?

As 3% HP bought from the drugstore also has added 'stabilizers', potentially that could cause problems.

It is unlikely this problem would be triggered by well-diluted Food Grade HP used on its own.

Regarding the oral mouth rinse use of drug/general store hydrogen peroxide (with additives 3% & 35%). I couldn't take it anymore and needed to comment after reading about the evils of cheap store bought peroxide and ultimately, the black tongue thing.

I have been using non food grade, store bought, less than 1 US dollar hydrogen peroxide as part of my dental care routine for over 20 years with no ill effects or black tongue. As I am always in a rush and have become more complacent over the years, I just take a swig (full strength) to rinse my mouth after flossing and before brushing. I've accidentally swallowed it before. I don't use it daily, just a couple times per week. I also put it on my toothbrush before putting baking soda on it (my tooth whitening paste used before regular brushing). An acquaintance asked me just a couple days ago how I kept my teeth so white. My dentist even comments on how good my teeth look.

I was well aware when I began to experiment with it for dental care, that peroxide can bleach fabrics and skin, could burn, eat holes through some fabric, etc. I was very careful and slowly reached the point of testing it as a mouth rinse, used very briefly (20 seconds or less) and often followed by a quick rinse with water. So, I did not start off by putting a quantity of regular peroxide straight into my mouth. Well, I may have dabbed a q-tip in it and tested it on a canker sore or applied it directly to a stubborn spot on a tooth.

I had a lot better luck with the store bought hydrogen peroxide when used for oral care, than when I previously attempted to lighten my hair with it as a teenager. :) I also use the non food grade on certain laundry stains or for specific cleaning applications.

Anyhow, never experienced any problems or issues with using it as I have and continue to do.

Black tongue - I do not know about the black tongue medical condition or its link to peroxide, just know that from my experience, it didn't affect my tongue. On some trip I took a pink pepto bismal like chewable tablet for a stomach complaint and wound up with a black tongue. As my friend had give me a small sleeve of these pink tablets, I kept them in my travel bag and on rare occasion while travelling have taken them. Get a black tongue every time.

Tongue discoloration - #2 - a Chinese medicine practitioner I saw years ago always noted the condition and color of the tongue before beginning treatment. Apparently, a lot could be determined, but I recall having the heavily coated or white, yellow or other colored tongue wasn't really good. I think my thick white coated tongue cleared up through dietary changes (basically nixing sodas and fast food).

Anyhow, caution is always a good thing. Paying attention to warnings and labels is always good too. Critical thinking is key, in my opinion, as is common sense. Know that what works for one person, may not work for you or in the same way, and there are so many factors contributing to the unique environment in ones body that it is worth doing your own research on natural remedies like hydrogen peroxide.

Now, that I am finally buying my first bottle of food grade peroxide, I am excited to try it internally. I don't expect to see the great pain relief or immune system results right away, as I might have to endure a period of toxin removal or some die off of something, but am optimistic I will see some benefit.

A vendor I've been working with swears by the food grade h2o2 in bottled water to keep the viruses at bay and stay healthy, especially when travelling by air every week.

Have you ever known somebody with bad breath? Here is the cure. 1-Do gargles with hydrogen peroxide. All the bacteria accumulated by years will be killed and your breath will be as fresh as it can be. 2-Do the same once a week or maybe once a month. If you still have any problem, that I doubt it, probiotics will be the solution for getting rid of bad breath if it is accompanied by body odor. But the first step is the gargles.

hello I use baking soda to brush my teeth since regular tooth pastes have fluoride in them which is actually really bad for you. it messes up your enamels and also fluoride is the same chemical that is used in rat poison and it was used by hitler to confuse and control his solders. the waters have also been contaminated with fluoride in order to keep the general public confused. doctors tried to get me to give my babies fluoride supplements. I told them they were crazy and when I brought up all this information to the doctor he was stumped and couldnt reply. anyway baking soda make your teeth white from the first time you use it and my teeth feel so much cleaner than when using regular tooth paste. Great Site!!!

All of the things with flouride in them, including toothpaste would lend to the possibility of heavy metal build-up thus creating problems from heavy metal poisoning. You believe you are doing yourself a favor by brushing your teeth with baking soda. Did you know however, that Arm & Hammer Baking Soda also contains aluminum? So do most deodorants. Compound this with all of the metals used in chemical fertilizers, and therefore grown right into our fruits and vegetables.

It's not surprising to find so many with dementia, arthritis, etc which may be related to heavy metals accumulating and causing problems all due to the trusting and overeating diet average of the American diet. When there is no change in the diet, these metals build up and are suspect of causing the aforementioned problems. Unfortunately, disease and Alzheimer's is almost expected as a person ages. By the way, you can get aluminum-free baking soda at your local health food store. Adding more oxygen does however ring true in prevention and cure of many problems we face.

I had a problem of Bad breath for many years now. I had mints all over the place to make sure I had them all the time. I brushed my teeth after every meal and yet within an hour the bad breath was back. Then I came across Sharon's advice last week. Tried it and it WORKED!!! No bad breath from then on. Amazing! I rinsed my mouth in ordinary peroxide for about 2 minutes. Yes, my tongue was a bit sore. I rinsed after lunch and didn't have dinner-- I wasnt hungry, just so very happy. Next day my tongue was back to normal. Thank you very much, Sharon! It has changed my life. A question: Do you think it is okay to have a quick peroxide rinse everyday morning? Does it harm the teeth enamel in any way?

Bad Breath

My boyfriend started using pysillium a few weeks ago to cleanse his intestinal tract. He felt great, but my God! his breath became so foul!! After a few days of being polite, I finally figured that I needed to say something and help him find a cure. I figured it had to have been caused by a change in his intestinal flora from the pysllium. The change must have caused severe candida overgrowth. His tongue was coated in white -- a sure sign. I had him take a few capsules of ParaGone (it was what was leftover in my medicine cabinet) to start to kill off the candida. That seemed to help, but didn't completely stop the halitosis. This is going to sound gross, but I made him open his mouth to detect whether the stench was coming from his breath, or from his teeth. I have particularly good smell and pinpointed that the smell was coming from the upper right side of his mouth! Well, after that I had him soak his mouth in straight hydrogen peroxide for about 3 minutes. Once it foamed up, I had him to it again. That was the cure! No more bad breath! The peroxide did make his tongue sensitive for a few days, so I would suggest to anyone trying this that they dilute the peroxide in water. I think that bad breath is often a sign of candida or yeast overgrowth so killing it in the mouth with peroxide AND taking some kind of candida cleanse is the answer. One more note: I read on the internet that it can take up to 3 weeks to cure bad breath. Well, this took a few minutes with the peroxide. Don't believe what you read! Hope this helps some of your readers. Thanks. Sharon.

Best Water To Use

I am in the process of researching and learning as much as I can about hydrogen peroxide therapy. What I would like to know is if distilled water is the only type of water you can use with the hydrogen peroxide. Can you use any other type of water like spring water or reverse osmosis water? And if not then what is the reason for the use of distilled water? Thank you, Jacob

Jacob: Molecules catalyze the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide. Distilled water is the only water that does not contain any molecules. Spring water is best for drinking. Reverse osmosis and filtered waters from the treatment plants have had their electromagnetic frequencies changed and give off bad vibes like emf waves from electronic gadgets.
