I have often used peroxide in my ears for ear infections. My mom used it on me as a child and I have since done so. This week I had a severe bought of what I suppose is the flu. My jaws, ears, and throat ached extremely bad. After using peroxide in my ears, my symptoms would ease up. It did the same for my husband when I did this for him.

I've been using hydrogen peroxide for oral hygiene my entire adult life with no mouth disease, cavities, and sparkling clean teeth. I was concerned because I was feeling a pain in my left ventricle (I think), perhaps from stress and/or lifelong consumption of animal fat although I'm in pretty good shape for 45 yrs old. I felt that 3% store grade was ok and began inhaling it using an old perfume spray bottle. After only one week of therapy, the pain in my heart has gone away, my joints feel better, my muscles aren't sore anymore, and I don't feel like taking a nap during the day.

While I was using to purge a viral. I mixed two-three drops of Food Grade H202 to a liter of distilled water. Used it for about two weeks. After stopping, my nails became silky and very strong since using it. I feel wonderful. I've never had strong nails before in my life until now. This is a keeper for me.

My BIG toes are victims of injuries from "new" shopping carts 2 summers ago. I was wearing sandals both times. Our visiting podiatrist said that due these injuries I may have a nail fungus. But, my nails are NOT yellow. They were only bruised and the "mother cells"/half-moon seem to be helping them to grow to the "free edge." The podiatrist removed the loose nails and now the left toe "new nail" has nearly reached the "free edge." The right toe was re-injured accidentally and only has grown 1/2 way to the "free edge." My Dr. said the remedy he had in mind would be unaffordable for me. I have resorted to "peroxide" treatments and my toenails look like they are healing.

Peroxide seems to help the "mother cells" grow a new nail. I apply it once every day with a cotton ball saturated with the peroxide. Naturally it dries it out, but I do see some growth on the nail. Time will tell and I will keep in touch with the results.

I don't know if it because I have a 9 1/2 shoe size that my wonderful grand kids keep stepping/jumping on the "trying to heal" big toes of mine ..........or what. But, it certainly slows it down.

Also, my primary Dr. didn't know how to cure a "root type" ....which could be a cyst on a node on my ring finger. I used a prescribed ointment called HYDROCORTISONE CREAM USP 2.5% strength. The sac became irritated again. I use this "lightly" as directed about 3 times per day with the results that it has cured the irritation although I can still see the dried up tiny sac. The cream I use is comparable to the "off the shelf" hydrocortisone cream USP but, it has a stronger effect on the affected area.

Hope this feedback helps and you can pass it on. These are only my ways of curing and rather experimental.

I do understand that you're supposed to take food grade. However, the 3% solution from the drugstore works well also. People imagine that somehow it will hurt you. How is that possible? The cheap stuff is made to put on an open wound, which means it will enter your blood stream. It is also recommended as a mouth wash. You really think that no H2O2 will enter your bloodstream while swishing it around in your mouth? Of course it does. So while food grade might be ideal, the cheap stuff is safe or you wouldn't be able to survive pouring it on open wounds.

The label on the 3% drug store version says you can use it as an oral debridement but not to drink it. Imo, that label is simply there to protect the manufacturer from being sued by people who think you should be drinking H2O2 like soda or water in massive amounts. It is inevitable that you will ingest a few drops each time you rinse your mouth with H2O2.

Also, don't fret if you can't find 35% solution. You can use a lower concentration but you just have to increase the dosage. E.g. if you get the 12% concentration, then you just triple the number of drops in the same amount of water (3x12%=36%). Same for the 3%. Just multiply by 12 x.

Better But With Side Effects

I have just bought an ozonator. I drink one glass of water per day after ozonating for five minutes and drinking immediately. My energy levels have risen dramatically! I am using the ozonated water to clean everything - much cheaper than buying products. One thing though, my hands just came up in dark blue blotches like dark blood. Anybody know why this would be?

Better But With Side Effects

I was inquiring about the "dark blue" appearing on my feet.

Since home from the hospital (April 2, 2009), I was informed by my brother-in-law I should start taking the Hydrogen Peroxide Food Grade. I had 3 operations, the last one being a Cancerous Tumor removed because it triggered Epileptic Seizures.

I started taking it orally (diluted using the Food Grade H202 with a dropper and demineralized water.) Later, I found that the H202 Food Grade also helps Arthritis (which I had) and is now gone. Hurray!! Then, out of the blue, a certain spot on my feet started to go slightly red. So I sprayed it and it gradually went away. Just a tad bit left now. (The only reason why I spray my feet - but I do spray on the legs for varicose veins). Works great.

As I mentioned in the very beginning, blue spots started appearing on my right foot (mainly the big toe) then slowly my left foot started to go the same way. When I saw my doctor (regarding the cancer, I asked her if she knew if this was from Neuropathy - had it since 2004). She said "its varicose veins" - which I know its not.

I'm going to try and not spray the feet at all now. See if the blueness goes away.

I thought I was the only person with this problem.

Thanks for your help.

I did some research in 2008 because I lived with pain on my T5 after suffering from a bout of shingles. The doc got rid of the rash but said I had to learn to live with the pain, it killed my golf. I went from a single figure to a 20+ hcp.

I started ingesting food grade Hydrogen Peroxide, the correct dosage, and it got rid of all my problems within a year.

Have been doing same for eight years now and have not had a cold or sore throat all this time which I suffer at least once every year. Only reaction was the normal reaction in the early stages in the first month and at 76, I am doing fine.

For those that do not know, HP was the antiseptic of the 40's just after I was born.

I still take 10 drops of 3% food grade every day and will continue till my sun sets. If you suffer any reactions I think you are over dosing, so watch it.

Well, this is going to sound a little unorthodox but i thought about why do my plants grow better when it rains than when I water them from my tap? You said there is no oxygen in the water so I am putting some peroxide in the water I use to water them with. just experimenting here right now but I don't have cancer and I have recommended it to friends. this is an awesome website. I use peroxide to whiten my teeth. just put it on a piece of cotton and leave it on my teeth for 10 min. works good.

Hi, I love this site and would really like to begin an H2O2 treatment. Are any of the methods safe for pregnant women? Thanks!

Can someone who is pregnant take 35% H2O2?


Probiotics and H2O2

Posted by Lynn (Onalaska, Wa) on 10/24/2010

Hello, I haven't started taking H202 yet. I have 17% food grade H202 and ready to start. Can anyone tell me the schedule of how to take this and when to take the probiotics? What about vitamins and herbs. Thanks Lynn

Rocket science ;) It appears certain strains of probiotics produce hydrogen peroxide. Rather than drinking hydrogen peroxide, consider eating yogurt or drinking kefir, and/or other fermented probiotics foods.

Anon,

Some probiotic strains releases hydrogen peroxide to kill the bad bacteria in the digestive system. To kill probiotic bacteria, it needs to release about 4 times more hydrogen peroxide. This will not happen. That is why they can kill selectively the bad bacteria but not other probiotic bacteria.

Best wishes.

Pulmonary Fibrosis. For the past 11 days I have been taken 35% up to 75 drops daily. My lungs are in the process of being cured. my ears are begining to open once again. My chest is beginning to feel almost in order once again. Amen! I have additional energy, breathing is coming back in short spans, yet it is coming back... The Doctors reports as of 2 weeks back is Cancer in the Lung... Yet, I mentioned the product to him, and he made another apointment for the 31st of this month. I will let you know.

My name is Jimmy Vou... I've had Pulmonary Fibrosis since 2005... A little over five (5) years.. February 2008 I can to the point that my chest started to cave in... You could hear my breathing down the street... I thought I was in the pathway of Going Home to meet my Jesus... Amen...! But something told me to start searching the Net for some type of solution that could either help "me" or just say goodbye...

It was about 3 days after I started taking Hydrogen Peroxide 35% Food Grade... that my lungs started to become normal once again... My breathing was starting to open up once again... My throat and face started to feel much better... About 4 months later I stopped, and I believe approximately 30 days later the latter was returning... so I immediately started taking Hydrogen Peroxide 35% Food Grade...

Since then, I have been wonderment to many people including my Doctors... They at first told me to stop taking H.P. 35% Food Grade, that it wasn't any good for me. I asked them if they had the same disease as mine would you at least try something that might help... Each one at different time shut-up... Now they are asking me how I feel. I tell them all... I'm still here doing all I can to strengthen my ability to stay in the condition until I get better then I am today... The last doctor I talked with, he told me that I had about another 3 to 4 years left... I just turned 70. And I feel good... Amen!

If there is any information that could be helpful, please don't hesitate to contact me...

Razor Bumps

After using Nair hair remover on my bikini area, I developed a HUGE disgusting "razor" bump in a very embarrassing place. I immediately went online to find out how to get rid of it and all sites said "leave it alone" That the ingrown hair will eventually force it's way out. So I did. And 2 days later it was even bigger and I could see that it was infected (was like big puss bubble. Yes - GROSS). So since I use Peroxide on everything else that ails me i said why not. I soaked a cotton ball in H2O2 and used a band aid to secure it in that spot overnight. By morning, that bump had shrunk to at least 3/4 of its original size and all that infection was out of it. Now all I have to do is fish the hair out, but the peroxide worked GREAT. I LOVE H2O2. I have also used it as a mouthwash for years. About 10 yrs ago my dentist prescibed an expensive mouth wash for me (Periodox) and seeing that H202 was the main ingredient, I started rinsing with Wal-Mart grade and saved myself $38.02 a month. My mouth is in excellent health and my dentist STILL doesn't know I dumped his expensive prescription years ago.
