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 water 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.

If you remove the frozen water from 3% peroxide will that not give you 100% peroxide? And how is that "purified"? It is not simply less dilute? The title implies stabilizers have been removed.

Hydrogen Peroxide and Stabilizers

Posted by Baldev (Maharashtra, India) on 08/24/2013 185 posts

My question is for Ted/Bill, I have asked this question earlier also but so far no answer has been given to me, and it is very important for people living in India. I have even gone to people who make H2O2 and they have told me that demand for food grade H2O2 in India is so little that it is not viable for them to make it and it is very unstable so if they make it and is not sold, it is total loss to them. I therefore had requested Ted/Bill to give their advice whether one can take the normal (non food grade) H2O2, as we are taking Borax which is for lab use only. Why I am emphasising this question is that we in this part of the world are being deprived of the benifits of H2O2. How harmful are the stabalisers which they put to make H2O2 stable for lab/external use only? Ted/Bill please take some time to answer my question so that once for all this subject can be taken out of my mind one way or the other.

Thanks Baldev

Baldev, I bought 20 mule team Borax in local grocery for $10 here in canada. It was nearly 1 kg I guess. The better way for you to buy is try for reputed people in Ebay. It does not hurt to try. All you need is money. Good Health

Baldev, for inhalation of h2o2 Bill Monroe uses plain stabilized h2o2 from any drug store. Personally, I just put some diluted plain h2o2 in my mouth and breathe "thru" it 6-7 breaths then spit it out. Seems to help any respiratory problems for me.

Hydrogen Peroxide and Vitamin E

Posted by Sean (Richmond, Va) on 12/11/2009

Ive read the instructions on how to take hydrogen peroxide and it says to also take Vitamin E while you are doing the treatment. Do you take the Vitamin E before , during, or right after you take the dose of h2o2? I know you're not supposed to eat anything 3 hours before or an hour after taking h2o2

Here is my experience so far using hydrogen peroxide:

I started a month ago, trying out the baths, the inhalation method, and also the food grade drops internally. For anyone who is worried that the h2o2 bath is less useful since it's used externally, don't worry about that. The baths work just as effectively. In fact, I've had to taper off the number of bottles (32oz at 3%) I use per bath, from 4/day to just one, because my detox symptoms started to become pretty bad. I've done a lot of metal detoxes, and I recognize from those the same anxiety and flu-like symptoms when my body can't clear out the toxins fast enough.

Anyway, for me drinking the drops in water led to a lot of nausea which was a deal breaker, so I stopped. The throat spray seems to have been incredibly powerful, but I stopped doing that as well since it irritated the back of my throat. The good news is, if you have those problems, you can easily get the same results from the baths alone. And they make my skin look excellent as well.

What I want to mention though is this: it is possible to overdo it! Someone else on this site wrote about a "hang over" effect from the h2o2, and I think that must be what I've had? I believe that the h2o2 is building up over time, and that it needs enough space between doses to clear itself out? Has anyone else had a similar experience, finding the upper limit on the dose they can handle? And what happens after that?

Overall, it seems that my muscles and joints are less rigid than before I started. I'm taking the h2o2 for persistent low level arthritis and fibromyalgia. Thanks so much earthclinic for providing such valuable information!

Hydrogen Peroxide Capsules

Posted by Norma (Illinois, US) on 08/20/2014

Does anyone know if the Zero2Sixty Oxylife capsules work and also Earths Bounty Oxycaps? they both have good reviews on Amazon the only difference seems to be (besides the price) is the Zero2Sixty lists only 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide as the only ingredient and oxycaps lists sodium, potassium and calcium as ingredients, I would personally think the zero2sixty would be better for breathing problems. does anyone have any suggestions?

Replied by Timh

The Oxycaps are essentially oxygen "precursors" of Sodium Chlorite w/ potassium and calcium stabilizers or buffers. With adequate or higher levels of these nutrients, the body naturally produces "more" oxygen than normal. I would recommend the Oxycaps taken first and if necessary add the H2O2 products to maximize O, probably in about a 2:1 ratio.

Hydrogen Peroxide in Humidifier

Posted by Roula (Arlington, Virginia, Usa) on 02/10/2013

I'm reading all this wealth of information on earthclinic.com about HP and respiratory issues. I want to try what I learned on my 3.5 year-old-son who has pnueumonia. Then I got to thinking, would putting HP in the air humidifier be an effective way to transport the it into the breathing ways leading into the lungs?

I couldn't find any discussion on this topic, and hoping to start one with this inquiry. Thanks!

Just a word of caution: Humidifiers are known to be extremely bad for health, whereas de-humidifiers are safe. The best ways to humidify a home are as such: 1) Place as many plants as you can fit onto your window ledges. The plants will release moisture into the air through transpiration. 2) Once you've finished in the bath, leave the water overnight to cool and some will evaporate into the air and humidify your home. 3) Place bowls of water in rooms of your home, these will evaporate eventually, then just refill. 4) Try and do as much cooking on a stove top rather than in the oven. The stove top cooking allows moisture to be released - the oven will dry your home out.

p.s. not to mention you'll save heaps on electricity!!

Hydrogen Peroxide Injection and Enema

Responding to a post about Hydrogen Peroxide for Cancer:

Posted by Tj (Alberta) on 11/04/2015: "Can anyone assist me in how to use DSMO and Hydrogen peroxide together for cancer treatment. I would appreciate any assistance on how to use these two products together. How much of each/ what kind of method/when etc. Thanks so much."

Hydrogen Peroxide Taken Internally,

This is a very dangerous thing to do, but I have taken it by enema as well as an injection into fat.

After researching, I found the internal dilution % or rate. Hydrogen Peroxide is very caustic and can burn your insides out if not diluted to .3% or a .003 dilution rate. It will kill slowly and with a lot of pain. A person is literally playing with death here and should use extreme caution. This is why I use a .3% not .5% dilution. It is always best to err on the side of caution when your life is in the balance.

Remember disease cannot live in an oxygenated alkaline environment, especially cancer.

So, if you're going to try to introduce oxygen into the body through other means than just breathing. Perhaps a Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber Facility or injection of Ozone by a clinic would be best.

If the decision for using a (HP) hydrogen peroxide solution has been made to be taken internally (absorbed through the skin or passing the blood barrier). The HP must be FOOD GRADE (FG) using 1 part 3% FG Hp to a 10 parts water distilled solution. Get a measuring syringe and for every 10 parts of water use 1 part 3% FG HP.

At this point you're ready for your carrier. Be it an enema contraption, a syringe (please don't inject directly into a vein), or a DMSO application. Each carries the solution into the body. DMSO is not a dilution substance, it is a carrier.

When breaking the blood barrier as in using a syringe into the fat, or DMSO. Extreme cleanliness must be strictly adhered to. This is probably the reason the FDA will not allow it to be used.

Enema would be my personal recommendation for internal administration of FG HP. I know it sounds dirty and gross, but compared to someone else shoving things up your anus the alternative isn't all that bad. Besides, once you get used to doing it the feeling of being clean within the lower intestines is quite liberating.

If I was to be, DMSO and HP is my decision and that's final. I would mix just 2 or 3 drops 3% FG HP with 20 or 30 drops of distilled water mixing with DMSO and applying to an area on the stomach around the navel but staying away from the liver (right rib cage) after using an alcohol bath for the area prior to administration. If I know where my cancer is then I would apply to that area too. Just keep in mind that cleanliness is key, not only the body but everything that comes in contact with the solution.

I'll continue, this is only 3 ml. per liter if using 30% Food Grade HP to distilled water. I used an empty syringe without the needle for an as close to exact as possible dilution. This was for an enema solution. I did 2 enemas first to cleanse out the lower intestines (1 liter plain body temp water). Then I put in about a cup of the HP solution and held it, my body took it in on the 3rd try and I soon got an extreme rush from the oxygen entering my blood through the intestinal wall. This method is 10 times more potent than drinking the same solution.

For the injection into a rouge STAPH Infection, I used 3% HP from a local pharmacy because there was no time to waste getting food grade HP.

I had been kicked out of the hospital for the 2nd time. The first time I wasn't admitted but was fed one dose of IV antibiotics and walked with a week's supply of oral antibiotics after walking in with an inflamed softball size bleeding scab that was a black mark the size of a standard paper hole just 2 days earlier. After the week had passed and I was out of ammo (antibiotics) the infection came back with authority. After 2 days more the infection site under the skin and in the fat looked like a rash around the softball (command center) and measured 10" x 12".

On my second admittance to the same hospital, they kept me for 3 days at which I fought verbally for another dose of the IV antibiotic cocktail and was denied. In fact the doctor said he could give me no more antibiotics without the possibility of severe adverse side effects.... Crohn's Blah blah blah, and a host of other immune disorder diseases.

I could literally feel the infection in the command center just waiting for the withdrawal of the antibiotics so it could reinvade the rest of my body. My wife looked at the softball the next day and said it looked worse than the night before. The site was on my back and I couldn't see it well at all.

I took a 1 cc syringe.

Filled it with .46 cc of bacteriostatic water (blood barrier use water) which I had on hand.

Then finished by putting in .04 cc of 3% HP.

Put in a total of 5 injections into the softball size inflamed purple mass

4 (.07 cc doses) around the site and 1 (.22 cc dose) into the center

From the very beginning until that moment it never stopped hurting or itching. In a matter of maybe 5 minutes all was gone (hurting/itching). The purple mass took months to heal of which I still have a scare.

Remember also that when using FG HP or Ozone therapy you create a lot of free radicals in the body. So it's important to use some of the many free radical scavengers available. This site will help you there also if you need help in this area.

I would also like to say that I am not a doctor to anyone other than myself and would not recommend any of what is written here be used for any purpose other than education.

Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy and Supplements

Posted by Lizajane (Id, United States) on 02/07/2014

Hydrogen peroxide therapy and accidental iron intake: Just realized that our brand of multi-vitamins added iron (10 mg) to it's formula. I've been doing the hydrogen peroxide treatment (ingesting) and am now scared that I may be hurting rather than helping myself. Have of course stopped the vitamins. Any advice or thoughts on this? Should I stop the treatment completely? Seems like you can get added iron in your diet in multiple ways (cereal, etc.) without realizing it, so I'm sure some of you others must have dealt with this. Any help will be much appreciated!

Lizajane: Vit-C is very important for the assimilation of synthetic iron supplements, so do make sure this brand also includes the Vit-C or find a brand without iron and be sure to eat at least 1 serving of cooked liver per wk and/or Blackstrap Molasses (BSM) as these two foods are the best forms of Iron. A B-12 w/ Folate will help the body use the Iron for the production of Red Blood Cells. A broad spectrim Vit-E suplement will greatly increase the lifespan of the Erythrocyte thus reducing the need for Iron.

As for the H2O2 therapy, be sure to first alkalize the body to maximize the Oxygen levels in the cells. Also, if you are using the H2O2 for infection issues, I would rotate, on a weekly basis, w/ herbal antibiotics like Neem, Oregano, Olive Leaf, Garlic.

Thank you for answering, Timh. I will try your suggestions. My body definitely doesn't need MORE iron (according to lab work), so I avoid it in supplements. I'm on the hydrogen peroxide therapy for sinus problems and general preventative (ex-smoker, fibromyalgia, etc.) and am up to 21 drops 3 X daily, so I really don't want to stop now..too hard to get here! Just wasn't sure how much damage that multi-vitamin with iron might have caused. I do get lots of Vit C. Thanks for your thoughts...past and future.

Lizajane: It is difficult to determine what oxidative damage might occur w/ the H2O2, and this therapy should only be temporary; that's why I suggested the herbal antibiotics for rotation. As for general protection, which seems appropriate in your condition, continue your H2O2 course and monitor for results, but eventually what your body needs firstly is nutritional antioxidant protection. This is an entire science in itself, so do familiarize yourself and begin fortifying your body.

I started the 35% FGHP 2.5 months ago. I was desperate as for 2 years I have been begging my docs to find out what was wrong with me. I spent a year and a half at my primary docs having one symptom after another. Mainly my glands were swollen in my neck and would not go down. Lymphs in my chest and neck the same. She just kept putting me on antibiotics. Persistent, knowing there was something wrong with my body, I asked to be referred to the mayo clinic. 6 months if specialists, blood tests, ultrasounds, CT's, Mri's etc. Nothing that would be causing my symptoms. Getting worse all throughout, I had spent so much money and I quit going.

Long story short, I ended up in the ER as I collapsed to the floor. My blood pressure had dropped so low that my kidneys shut down. Was diagnosed in Hosp with acidosis, nuetropenia, parvo virus B-19, pneumonia, and my body was so full of bacterial infections, it almost killed me. 9days on strong antibiotics that it took several weeks to get my strength back. (A couple of things ..found microadenoma with brain MRI although non secreting and have watched it..along with very tiny nodules in neck and chest...were too small to biopsy.)

Since being released I changed primary docs. A year and 2 months after, my symptoms returned. Begged my primary to not let this get to where it did before. But here my glands in my neck have been swollen now for months and have had ultrasound of carotid artery, several chest CT'S..blood work etc and just antibiotics again.

So 2 months ago I was told about this therapy. I started it and informed my doc about it and he said he had no problem with me trying it. The first day 3, drops (of 35% FGHP), second 4, third 5 and 4th 6 etc. On the 5th day I threw up just yellow bile. Felt fine after I threw it up. Kept in increasing drops (btw I had more energy than I'd had in a long time), and when I reached 14 drops, I threw up again, only this time I couldn't shake the nausea. Took myself down to 13 drops...still nauseated pretty bad...then 12. Couldn't seem to stop the nausea so I actually backed off to 1 time per day at 10 drops. That seemed to be OK.

Then I read about the inhalation method so I started doing that 2 x a day along with the one time a day drinking it. Breathing seemed easier as I am a smoker , (trying to quit), and no more nausea. Stayed there for awhile (maybe 4-5 days), but now noticed the areas that were swollen glands and lymphs again, seemed like they were almost tingling and seemed to be opening up of some sort. Feeling like this was an positive sign, I now am going back to drinking 8 drops 2 x a day and 1-2 inhalations. Since I started feeling like these areas were opening up (from feeling clogged or stopped up with constant sinusitis), I am now feeling my neck and throat swell it feel like it is swelling and has raises my concern now that possibly all song this problem was in my neck or throat and is definately alarming me. I am not giving up in this therapy...whatsoever as I believe in it and up until I started using it I was on my way to another hospital stay like before. (They say I have a challenged immune system), put me on plaquinel for the last 5 years but the mayo took me off it and 5 months later is when I was in Hosp).

I am awaiting CT scan results of my chest from last week, and now I am certainly going to call my doc today and ask for ultrasound of my neck again. Been a year and a half since last one...or some test that reveals what might be going on in my neck and throat. This therapy has been my only feeling of saving grace. I had nothing to lose as the docs were not finding anything . I have been reading all the stories and this site has given me hope that I will soon find out or be rid of, what has come back to make me I'll again. I'm going to try to get back up to 3 x a day drinking this...but my question is...what if I can't get passed the 14 drips again, will staying on a lessor amount still do what 25 drops can do for you, or am I hindering the treatment by...like the h202 book said...you don't want to stop it cause u have stirred up all the bacteria in your body and by stopping it could cause other problems because now it has no where to go. Any feedback would be helpful and very comforting.

Thank you, this site and all of you are my daily dose of hope. Lisa

Lisa: Thanks for posting your saga and hurray on what recovery you have experienced.

A few thoughts. This is a good example of how both severe & complex disease can be. In this event one must try to reduce all the manifested symptoms back to the root causes or disease itself. Whenever folks like yourself have all these debilitating factors and a myriad of diagnostic test and fruitless treatment from healthcare professionals from the modern medical standard, it is almost always some type of environmental illness. A lack of oxygen, acidosis, infections, are common in toxicity issues.

The H2O2 therapy is keeping you alive for now but you desperately need to do detox remedies as posted here on E.C. This would include heavy metal cleanses, parasite cleanses, boosting antioxidant nutrition. Stop the H2O2 for a few weeks and first alkalize your body (also detox) w/ hot Epsom Salts (1/4) cup and Borax (1/4 cup) baths. Take the herbal "Red Clover Combination" prior to these baths (3 per wk for now). Detox Foot Spas and Detox Foot Pads are also very effective at removing toxins from the body. Supplementing Potassium Iodine/Iodide will be necessary during the detox. Zapping will greatly help infections and give energy. Steam Room or Sauna sweating is also very effective detox, although you will do a good bit of sweating during the baths. Vit-C & MSM is a great detox combo (better than H2O2). You may continue w/ a minimal H2O2 but it is these variety of remedies that will get you back to health again.

Please post back w/ any questions as there are folks here that can and willing to assist as we all helping each other in recovery.

My lymph nodes had been swollen, even causing blurred vision, runny nose, rashes. 22 years into it with misdiagnosis, biopsies, meds with no results I finally was diagnosed with extremely rare Hyper-IgG4 disease lymphadenopathy. Cancer cells clone. My cells don't clone; all individuals, I just make too many. It's new disease so doctors don't know to test for it. Google it. Ask your doctor to test for it. They think more people have it, just doctors don't know about it.

Replied by Jim

Not to disagree in any way with Linda's posting about her own rare diagnosis, I'll just mention that, for so many others out there with swollen lymph nodes, this is a common effect of having a food allergy. As possible remedy, try dropping wheat from your diet for a week. If no change, the next week try dropping dairy.

Ingesting the h2o2 breaks down some of the radicals in it. Try 1% in vaporizing at night and keep inhaling it with a fine mist nebulizer. This may have a better effect for you than ingesting it. Detox in a bath with h2o2 in it. It will absorb through your skin.

You can also do a regimen of drops a couple of times a day in your ears.

Taking 1000mg of Vitamin C daily has helped people overcome those side effects. Also putting your drops in high concentrated Aloe Vera water and drinking it help your body better absorb the oxygen.

I've had 'jock itch' now for around 20 years. It comes and goes and is always worse in the summer. I've tried all the creams and sprays and all they do is suppress it and control it. I ordered some food grade H202 on line, 35% and just dabbed it on with a cotton ball and it immediately turned white and started to burn, I let it burn for about 20 seconds then jumped in the shower and rinsed it off. I did this again at night.The next day I diluted it by half and applied it again for as long as I could stand it, no longer then a minute. As I did this I noticed that the fungus was spread around a larger area then I ever imagined. I had small areas that went from my inner leg all the way up above my pubic hair. Anyway after about 10 days the insidious fungus was eradicated and hasn't come back! Thank you Earth Clinic. I am now huffing H202 a few times a day and I gargle with it twice a day and notice my teeth are getting whiter and cleaner. Who knew?

Hi Thomas...I had jock itch for 7 long years. The area affected went right round from my genital area and on my inner thighs to my rectal area, big red welts.

I researched jock itch and found out that tinea cruris (jock itch) was exactly the same as tinea pedis(athletes foot). Both are the same fungus.

Initially I started using athletes foot powder during the day, and after my shower at night I would douse the whole area, front and back with ordinary Milk of Magnesia (MoM) using cotton wool(this is very soothing, bye the way). I would leave this on all night, then wash it off in the shower the next morning. I was amazed when the jock itch completely disappeared without a trace within 3 days !! Killed it dead.

Leaving the MoM on overnight might not be such a good idea for those with sensitive skin. You can also apply the MoM and leave it on for just 20 minutes -- until it's dry and powdery -- then and wash off. The MoM has a pH of 10 -- very high -- which kills all fungus, yeast, bacteria etc. It's also best to apply a hydrating cream onto the skin area afterwards because MoM has such a drying effect on the skin.
