I started with melanoma in 2005 on my face. Had extensive surgery but they could not get it all. In March 2007 it had spread to my chest behind my heart. Had another extensive surgery to remove it. In August 2007 found out it had spread to my face/neck/and chest. Doctor told me that they couldn't operate. Did some internet research and read about hydrogen peroxide and how it puts oxygen back into your cells. Rejuvenating them. Well, decided to try it. I either take a 1/2 bottle and soak my feet in it with warm water or take a whole bottle and take a bath in it. Well, last petscan in November there were no new growths and the ones from August were less intense. My LDH also has dropped to an all time low of 113!! Is it the peroxide, can't say for sure but I won't stop it. Will try to keep you posted on my progress. What an easy cure this would be. Better than dying from metastisized malignant melanoma. Good Luck!! I am not a doctor just a normal person trying to help myself. I also started wearing magnetic jewelry. Who knows!!!

I tried the Hydrogen Peroxide for Melasma: I've done 5 treatments, 20 minutes on the affected areas and it has substancially faded. I have it quite bad on forehead, cheek area, upper lip. I have also done the glycolic peels, Tri-Luma cream, etc. with no results. I am amazed this is working, and trying to determine if I can continue this to control the melasma.

Metal Reaction

Posted by Teresa (Edmonton, Canada) on 12/10/2011

Does anyone know if it is ok or not, ??I am going to try the H202 working with 35% graded cut to 3%, is it ok to put it in the dog water that is in a metal bowl, will H202 cause any reaction with the metal, and affect the dog.

Hey, I don't know if the HP will oxidate the bowl or not, but I know when people use sodium chlorite, we cannot use metal because it oxidates the metal & will cause a harmful effect. Might be better off to use a glass or plastic bowl...

Milk Lasts Longer

I add about 1/4 teaspoon of 3% H2O2 to a carton of milk when I first open it. Since we slowly go through milk, it helps stop the milk from souring. If I still have the same carton in the fridge in two weeks, I will add a bit more. I have had milk last a month in the fridge without going sour!

What kind of milk are you using? Pasteurized, ULTRA-Pasteurized, Raw? I have found that the Ultra version (which has had all the vital nutrients removed by that very process, lasts WAY longer than the sticker date).

Mold and Mildew

This remedy works great! I had been fighting mold and mildew in the shower for years. I had mold developing on my shower ceiling and I would normally use bleach in a spray bottle and had to wait for it to dry. I mixed 50/50 of peroxide and water, sprayed the ceiling, waited 10 minuted and it wiped right off with a sponge. I'm telling you this really works. I have never seen the shower so clean!

Molecular Hydrogen

I wish that you had a thread about molecular hydrogen.

EC: Here it is!

Once the thread gets more information on it, we can start a new page... For now it's a topic on our Hydrogen Peroxide page.

Does anyone know often it is safe to use (drugstore) hydrogen peroxide as a mouthwash? How much should it be diluted with water? I've been using it about 75% H2O2 with 25% water, about 5 times a week, but afraid to use it more often in case it erodes the enamel. Thanks for any help.

Hi Sue, you use 3% hydrogen peroxide mixed 1 part hydrogen peroxide and 1 part water. I don't know how often you should use it but I have used it every day for a few days at a time when I have had a sore throat without any side effects. Cheers Lily.

Hi Ted I'm using HP 5% to 7% as a mouthwash in my tonsils-have started paining. Is it due to the use of HP? Pls reply- is it ok to use HP of 5% to 7%? I'm in very serious condition.

I can only get an off the shelf 6% HP here in Ireland. I simply use sterilized water half and HP half. I would think that using neat 5 - 7% would cause oral problems. As a mouth rinse it is probably not necessary to use the sterilized water.

I use over the counter 3% hydrogen peroxide as a mouthwash, but have always disliked the aftertaste. I purchased a bottle of peppermint oil from the baking section of my local market, and put one tablespoon in an eight ounce bottle of 3% hydrogen peroxide. Mouth feels very clean (and now minty fresh, too!) Others may like to add their favorite flavors, increasing or decreasing the measurement according to taste. Make sure to GENTLY shake your bottle before opening to keep peppermint oil evenly distributed, and keep your mouthwash in an opaque bottle (I use the same brown bottle purchased at the dollar store). Refrigerate if your bathroom is very warm, and keep bottle out of direct sunlight.

Hydrogen Peroxide is an amazing solution for pretty much everything. I've ingested so much of it that I've heard a buzz in my head. I cure my ear infections, sinus infection. My eye sight is sharper than before. Spent lots of time bathing in it submerged my entire body or just soaking my feet while watching tv. I can go on and on. So thumb up for the best med ever.

I love food grade hyrdogen peroxide. Kids and cats can = ringworm, so as soon as a spot appeared, several times a day we applied undiluted 3% hydrogen peroxide directly to the affected area and the ringworm was dead within a day. Continued to apply to the spot once daily after that. A week later, there's no sign ringworm ever existed - not a mark, scar or even discoloration, nothing. It's brilliant.

As for inner ear infections/colds/bugs/flu - we bought a big box of disposable 3ml pipettes. We fill one with food grade, undiluted 3% hydrogen peroxide, squirt it all into the ear, lay on our sides and let it fizz, bubble and tickle away until it stops (20 mins or so) and feel incredibly normal after that while people around us are dropping like flies with whatever's going around.

We also add 2 capfuls of food grade hydrogen peroxide to a humidifier if one of us is feeling a bit congested or wheezy and leave it on while we sleep - sleep like babies and are able to breathe freely.

Hydrogen Peroxide is amazing stuff.

Hi! I'm so gratefull that I've found this site. H2O2 really a big help for me and my kids. My kids always on medicines for coughs and cold, antibiotics and non stop nebulization for their asthma before. I thank God that He let me discover H2O2. Every time my kids have symptoms I just put 3 drops in each ear and drain. It really works now and no more meds. More power to your site and God bless!

To Mr. Ted I always put H2O2 in my kid's ear everytime they have coughs and cold. But I noticed that there's something white build up inside each ear. Is this just a wax that became white because of H2O2? Is this something to worry? Im worrying if always using h2o2 on ear will affect the brain. Pls. Help! Thanks!

Try adding a bottle of 3% peroxide in cool mist humidifier then fill with water. Clears congestion, many times over night.

I am so grateful to have found this 3% food grade H202. I prayed and prayed for healing and suddenly I came across this valuable piece of info. Before going on H202, my pee stunk like it had garlic or iron in it. The toilet was so smelly even I could not stand the smell. Now after a few days taking the H202, there is no smell at al. I used to suffer from horridly painful cramps in my thigh and calf, now they are a thing to the past. I sleep better and have a bit more pain to clear in my legs, hopefully that too will be gone as the days go by. I heard that so long as the Hydrogen Peroxide has no stabilisers, you can pour it into a food grade plastic bottle and freeze it. Then when the waiter in it is frozen, pour the pure liquid, which is 35%, into a smaller containers and keep it frozen. Just take out enough and put that amount into a smaller bottle with a dropper in the fridge. Replenishing it as you use it up. Hope that helps. Careful, this pure form will and can burn your skin on contact. Annie Low

I hope you are diluting the food grade H2O2 with distilled water only! If you mentioned this, my apologies

I am 49 yrs old and had painful periods, along with heavy flow and migraines.. All at the same time. Plus, I have asthma. UNTIL NOW. I no longer have ANY OF THESE SYMPTOMS since I started using 35% food grade H202 diluted with distilled water. I use the recommended drop dosages and now I'm up to 20 drops 2x daily and have been using it now for about 3 months. I have never felt better in my life. My asthma is almost completely gone and I have no symptoms related to my periods. I went to the OB/GYN today and she told me I may have a uterine cyst.. Then she asked if I had heavy periods, etc... So I told her 'no' since I no longer have them! I wonder if my cyst shrunk or what, but since I'll never know, I wanted to share my story.. It really changed my life completely. I'm even more awake in the morning and can exercise now without breathing problems. If anyone would like to talk to me personally, please feel free to email me.. I'm very happy to help anyone out there that can benefit from my experience.

Your article on how you stop your painful periods was very interesting. I would like to know how you do it.

For painful periods if you sit in a tub of warm water with some H2O2 added massage your belly & back for a few minutes let the fluids come out as long as you can or want to, it should give you relief of your pain & your period will be shorter. Warm water as warm as you can handle. Good luck & easy flow!

My son has small bumps all over his back. Also I was wondering what dilution can one drink for overall health benefits. I've been thru chemo twice since 2003.

I've been taking hydrogen peroxide for 4 weeks now, and seem to be so much better. But when I read some posts that say don't take it...that its dangerous... that kinda scares me. I don't know anyone personally that takes it or has ever taken it. When I tell them I ingest it they are like, "that's not good." So are you still taking it?

How many drops food grade did you start out with and for how long before you got up to 20 drops of peroxide?

Hi and thanks for sharing your post. I would like to know if you went back to check the cyst and can you tell me the dosage you started with?

Your post dates 2013. Since then, you haven't posted anything. You seemed to be so enthusiastic and ready to share more info and even offered to contact. I wonder if the lady is still alive. If something she was doing caused the loss of her life... :(

EC: No, we didn't have a system set up in 2013 to notify users of posts on their thread... that's more recent. She probably forgot to check back...
