One of my favorite H2O2 remedies is my homemade toothpaste. I take one part H2O2 and two parts baking soda (the measurements don't really matter, just get a consistency that you like). Stir them into a paste and brush as usual. It's a great fix for bad breath and whitens teeth just as well as those very expensive whitening kits, but with absolutely no pain. Another great recipe is for bad body odor. Take equal parts baking soda, H2O2, and water. Add a bit of dish soap and mix together. Scrub any place that the stink won't wash off. This remedy is great for athletes and sick people. Also works for people who have been skunked (it actually gave me the idea).

Our family has been using hydrogen peroxide for cleansing wounds; diluted as a medicinal mouthwash; ear wax removal and also used in the ears to help ward off catching a cold (3 drops in ear, wait ten minutes then swab out or let ear drain onto wash cloth. Hydrogen peroxide, inexpensive, non-invasive good stuff.

Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) ingestion has been responsible for a turn around in my overall health. I began experimenting with the ingestion of 35% H2O2 in Aug 2001. At that time I had no energy (yuppie fatigue syndrome), allergies, sensitivities, severe bronchitis several times a year. My options were Doctor Drugs or try something else. Having read Ed McCabe's book O2xygen Therapies I tried H2O2. Amazing! Things began to improve in a matter of a couple of weeks. I just got the results of my yearly physical. Excellant! My Doctor is amazed and told me to "keep doing what ever you are doing" but he doesn't want to know what it is. This is even though they are better than the last. The most dramatic improvement was the first year. I use the dilute 35% H2O2 in various ways. The main way is daily in my morning tea, in a bath, ear drops, nasal/throat spray a la Munro, and in various home made cleaning/disinfecting solutions.

The Morning Tea:
1/2 liter mug, Yerba Mate Tea,
three capfuls raw Apple Cider Vinegar,
4 grams Vit. C,
3 tablespoons good quality Unpasteurized Honey, and drops of H2O2.

Bath: 1 pint (500 ml, two cups) 35% H2O2 and 1 cup Epson Salts. Soak for at least 1/2 hour. It is preferable to filter the Chlorine out!

Ear Drops: 1% solution H2O2. Take an eye dropper full (15 - drops) and put in ear while lying down with that ear up. After 10 min. or so repeat with other ear. The bubbling you hear is good!

[Bill] Munro's methods are best to be referred to directly.

Household Cleaning Solutions: just add a little H2O2, drops of Tea Tree Oil and or Cinnamon Oil. Drops of Palmolive Detergent to water (to emulsify the oils). Bakin Soda can be pre-used on stuborn spots and stains. The efficacy of H2O2 can be increased with the addition of a little Colloidal Silver (I make my own). The inverse is also true that the efficasy of Colloidal Silver can also be increased with the addition of a little H2O2. jens ^j^

I have been consuming and using H2O2 for 8 years now and nothing has fallen off, never get colds or the flu, food poisoning affects me quickly and it is over soon after. I feed it to my pets when they are ill. I am also using colloidal silver.

I consume H2O2 (20-40 drops 35%) daily in my tea with honey, acv and vitamin C (see previous posting). It combines very naturally with honey (unpasturized). One of the best quality tests for raw honey is to dilute it and test for H2O2, the higher the H2O2 the higher the quality.

Recently an old neighbour moved back from Toronto after moving 10 years ago, he couldn't believe that I look younger now than I did then. jens ^j^

What method is used in testing the honey?
I'm looking for a method to test H2O2 content in distilled water. Dilutions less than 10%.

I've been drinking this stuff (now up to 18 drops @35%/day) for a week or two and nothing important has fallen off yet either.

Just wanted to send an update from my previous comments...I have actually been drinking the hydrogen peroxide now instead of inhaling and have had great results. The first time I drank it I mixed a full cap with about 20 ounces of water. I developed a terrible headache, like someone had hit me in the head with a Louisville Slugger, and the taste wasn't so great either. I figured my body was immediately going into a deep detox and decided this amount is too much for me all at once. So now I mix about 1/3 to 1/2 capful with water and it works much better. I will do this first thing in the morning and 3-4 more times during the day. This mixture gives me a lot of energy and definitely improves my mood. It works best on an empty stomach. I get the 3% grade from CVS, and it doesn't appear to have any stabalizers added. They aren't listed on the ingredients label, and my water doesn't turn cloudy. I have been doing this for over a week now and haven't died yet, haha. Just don't swallow an entire 'mouthful' at once. ;-) Cheers!

I heard from a close family about how his cholesterol was lowered and how he also lost weight.I just purchased hydrogen peroxide, and plan to use it diligently. I have used peroxide for earwax removal for years, and know it works well.

A nevus is little black pigmented spot on the skin, sometimes called a beauty spot. Mine was flat, about 6-7 mm in diameter and near my neck and slightly elevated. It's been there for probably 20 years.

I dipped a q-tip in 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide and applied it to the nevus only for a few seconds and then mopped the excess with the dry end of the q-tip. It burned a little, especially on later applications. I applied liquid vitamin A a few minutes afterwards to decrease the burning and promote healing. I did 3-4 applications over a period of a week. It fell off completely after a week and has not returned. My wife was very impressed. I'm not recommended this approach, but simply reporting my personal experiment. I've been experimenting with Bill Munro's inhaling approach for a little over a week. It appears to be working well. My energy has just about doubled and I'm breathing much better at night.

For many years, I would wake up at night, with a rapidly beating heart, gasping for breathe, etc. I have tried many remedies and again, over the years had developed high blood pressure perhaps, as a result of poor respiration at night, kidney and gallstones. Minor surgery for an impacted kidney stone and then major infirmities probably as a result of the surgery, antibiotics, HBP meds, and infections. Found your site, and I have started using food-grade H2O2 again orally and through inhalation, also extra virgin coconut oil, iodine, and cider vinegar. Within 2 weeks, HBP gone, no liver/GB pain or distress, and a major increase in energy and a returning sense of well-being. Sleeping through the night like a baby. Please be aware that I tried EDT suppositories and ionic footbaths for relief from toxicity, with only an increase in distress. I credit my body's healing to the H202, cider vinegar, coconut oil, iodine, and coffee enemas to eliminate the toxins. I truly appreciate this website and my return to health, after all these years of less than optimal functioning. I had had a normal body temp of 96.8 for years and after initiated Lugol's iodine footpainting, within this time period as well, my normal body temp is up to 98 from below 97, which is also a really good thing. Thanks to all of you for all your suggestions, and I wish this level of body optimization for all of you who suffer needlessly. God Bless You All. Jo Ana

I use the 3% peroxide in my humidifier, which keeps it clean and perhaps improves the air. Also I have been using it in my ears for years.When my ears are bothering me, I get dizzy, this takes it away. I asked the pharmicist years ago if I could drink a little and he said a quarter cap, there was nothing in it to harm you. A half cap causes a little headache for a minute. I taste it in my coffee (decaf). I put some in my dad's water with some aloe vera juice and he drank it. He sure felt better.He was very ill, and is perking up, so I am going to keep it up.

I soaked in 4 pints of 3% store-bought hydrogen peroxide last night for about 20 minutes, while I did a little oil pulling, and noticed this morning that the 'veinyness' in my legs isn't as noticeable. Today I decided to be brave and try the hydrogen peroxide inhalation method...I did two different breaths about 20 minutes apart, 4-5 squirts for each, and then laid down for a nap. I slept for an hour and a half and didn't realize I had even fallen asleep until I woke up and saw the time. I don't even feel that good when I taken melatonin at night. And I woke up with lots of energy. I am also doing the apple cider vinegar remedy so my body is quite 'tingly,' and I'm getting headaches...but these are all signs of detoxification as I have done the Master Cleanse before for ten days and had very similar side effects. The ACV will actually take care of detox headaches if mixed with the baking soda and taken on an empty stomach.

I have always used hydrogen peroxide for skin infections, insect bites, cankers, cold sores & deleting blood stains. Results are quick & inexpensive. I dab it on my finger, straight from the bottle, to apply to a cold sore or canker. I have never had a cold sore for more than a day. When I was a teenager, I also applied some to any pimples that might crop up.

August 2001, I began using H2O2 (Hydrogen Peroxide) seriously. My Doctor was vehemently against it (he is no longer my Doctor). The reason I began using it was because of extreme fatigue which he wished to treat with antibiotics. I'd seen that bad movie before with some of my friends, long term use of Doctor Drugs getting better but never really getting well. So I started the hydrogen peroxide instead of the "approved" regimen. Got pills?

It tastes terrible, so I had to make it more palatable or this was not going to fly. I began to disguise it in my morning tea (recipe to follow). The first couple of weeks I started to have more energy. Then my physical craving for tobacco (I had quit smoking a year earlier). Next my allergies became sensitivities and my sensitivities disappeared. Colds, flu and food poisoning now pass through me with little or no effect. I may drain for awhile or just eliminate it (a good poop). This winter a cold came through and a lot of people were off for over a week, it bit me but only drained away. No other ill effects not sick not tired nor achy, which others cannot say.

At my last physical my Doctor could find nothing wrong (again). Even my old physical injuries are getting better with less and less aches and pains. Feeling and looking younger is great! My white hair is being replaced by my old color, My bald spot dissapeared, and the new hair growth is keeping up with the natural loss.

Recipe: Using a two cup travel mug mix together Yerba Mate tea (use loose tea in a coffee maker, two heaping table spoons for a pot full) Apple cider vinegar (three capfuls) Honey to taste (unpasteurized, liquid) (I use about 1/4 inch or - in the mug) Vitamin C powder (a pile about 1 1/2 inches across the palm of my hand) (about 5 grams) Drops of H2O2 (Hydrogen Peroxide) (start small and add a couple more drops of 35% every week, I now use 20 to 50 drops depending on what is needed, 20 is a maintenance level).

This will clean you out! Some things you have loved the taste of (through the fog of a polluted body) or craved (my favorite was an Oh Henry with a Skor Bar chaser) may no longer be so appealing. Overall I am now a lot more sensitive to my environment and yet I also feel less impacted by the contaminants I eat, breath and drink.

Since starting this journey my life has improved because my Health has improved. There are other things I now do on a regular basis which reinforce those benefits from H2O2. Those I will write about in other sections of this most intriguing Web Site. My wife prefers to bathe with two cups 35% H2O2 (start small) to a tub full of water. We now make our own household cleaning solutions with H2O2 as a prime ingredient.

Life is not sitting with a great hand, but rather playing a bad hand well! (Old Danish Proverb)

Thank you, thank you, thank you jens ^j^

I have always used store grade peroxide for tooth problems and gargling for sore throat diluted about 4 times. I am pleased to learn about using to inhale to improve oxygen. Thanks to you and all your contributors.! Elaine

I am just amazed at what I am reading and wished I knew about this before. How does the peroxide work for fat loss and weight loss?
