Sinus Issues

Posted by Kasimon00 (Breaux Bridge, Louisiana, Usa) on 01/22/2010

i am new to h2o2 use. my best friend is getting them iv for post cancer treatment . i was sick with chills fever stopped up nose. went to her dr. and he gave me a nebulizer treatment with h2o2. i shared with him that my daughter suffers with sinus issues on a regular basis she has a heart condition that if she takes over the counter meds. she gets heart palpitations. it then gets bad enough that she ends up at dr. getting a steroid shot. i was told i could tell her to do a nebulizer treatment of h2o2 at the onset of sinus problem.

i have a nebulizer but not sure what strength h2o2 food grade to buy and how much to put in and do i dilute it in water and what kind? also if you have any other suggestions in the way of preventative for her it would be appreciated

Concerning the use of H202 in a nebulizer, caution must be exercised at all costs. From what I have read it appears that .50 % H202 mixed with saline solution is the proper ratio. I would also recommend that you only use FG H202 for this method.

Although the benefits of using H202 are well documented, its serious stuff and needs to be respected accordingly. Perhaps you should consult the doctor whom initially gave you the treatment as well.

Skin Cancer

I have had a basil cell carcinoma on my back for about a year.

It got a little bigger and I decided to get rid of it.

I have been using food grade h2o2 Hydrogen Peroxide (25-35%)

It burns but works great. Just use a cue tip dip it into the h2o2 and it burns the top layers of over a few weeks. It's better than the doctor and cost's about $1.00 worth of the food grade peroxide.

I will tolerate a little pain, no pain no gain.

I made the mistake of using fingernail polish that contained those cute little sparkles of glitter. Developed melanoma under both big toe nails. The doctors froze it, it came back, and I almost lost my toenails. I remembered reading about H202 and tried it. Soaked cotton balls, placed them on my toenails overnight wrapped in plastic wrap. YAHOO! Melanoma GONE! And my toenails grew back normal. Readers, if something you read sounds feasible, try it. Always use caution but try anything that has worked for others. Sadly our government and the powers that be are not for our health. They want us sick for that almighty dollar. Thank this site for being free and your ability to read for yourself.

Skin Issues

Posted by R (Denver, Co) on 05/27/2010

My 72 year old grandpa has a spot on his leg that is about the size of a quarter, its a dark crusty, scab looking thing. When he pushes on it, there is a small amount of clear fluid that comes from it. He says it feels slightly spongy. The skin surrounding it is red and looks infected. I took a q-tip and H2o2 and tried cleaning it. It instantly fizzed up. He says it doesnt hurt him. The more I cleaned it some of the 'scab' came off in little pieces. He is very stubborn and doesnt want to go in. If you could give me any advice, sorry for the nasty details. I wish I could attach a picture with this post I cant describe it good enough.

Thanks in advance for any help.

I have been using Nasonex (a prescription nasal spray) for the past ten years or so based on the recommendation of a family doctor) to alleviate my snoring. After viewing a recent E-mail that listed the many benefits of 3% hydrogen peroxide, I filled an empty Nasonex pump and have given myself the H2O2 for the past 3 nights. My wife reports no snoring. Short test but promising?

EC: We wrote asking for further clarification. Bob responded back: "I converted a used (empty) Nasonex pump and used it for a single shot into each nostril. Don't be surprised if the user sneezes several times after each application."

When using the 3% peroxide in the nazonex bottle. Did you dilute the peroxide or use straight 3% peroxide in the bottle?

Sore Throats

I have had a sore throat for a week now. I put the 3% Hydrogen Peroxide (no mix)onto some Qtips and then rubbed it onto my tonsils. It completely got rid of the white pus sacs on my tonsils and was foaming. The Qtips actually had pus all over them..Kinda gross but it worked!! I IMMEDIATELY felt better and am able to swallow now without pain..What a miracle that stuff is! I would rate the pain before using the peroxide, a 10, after using it a 1. Slight discomfort but not really noticeable. I also did it until I saw no more pus on my tonsil or on the qtips. Use a clean qtip each time. Also, this can cause you to gag..so be careful with that. Thanks so much for this website!

I found out about Hydrogen Peroxide and Apple Cider Vinegar through this site. I have experienced how wonderful these two products are to the body. I originally purchased H2O2 for general health, but little did I know it would get rid of the sore throat almost instantly. One morning I woke up with a sore throat, and decided to try my H2O2, and I was shocked with the results. I took my Food Grade H2O2 35% with Coke, not the greatest idea, lol. So a full can (355ml) Coke + 15 drops of Food Grade H2O2 and and drank her fast as possible, my throat had a slight tingle, but within 10 minutes of ingesting the H2O2 my throat soreness was completely gone. My GF had the same problem, was skeptical of the H2O2, but I finally got her to take it, and she was surprised at how well it works to get rid of sore throats.

EC: Warning: 15 drops of food grade may be too much! Read more here: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080225142204AA6BiVi

Spider Bites

I got bit by a brown recluse on my hand. Every day the scab would change color. It would go from slimy green to slimy yellow in the course of only an hour. So everyday I would pull back the scab and soak it in straight hydrogen peroxide. In six months it healed. If I had not done that it could have grown to a very large wound. But the hydrogen peroxide stopped that. Everytime I did soak it would really bubble. I have used this stuff for everything. It works! Marsha

Get this! I took a bath in hydrogen peroxide and it made my SPIDER VEINS in my legs way less noticeable!!! At first I thought it was the ACV i'd been taking, but after a week i noticed my veins back again. So I took another h202 bath (added 1 pt of 3% from store) and my legs are beautiful again!! I don't know how long it lasts, but temporarily it works!! I am so excited!

Stained Teeth

My daughter & I use baking soda and peroxide to brush our teeth once a week to whiten them... We pour baking soda in our hand, dip the toothbrush in the peroxide and start brushing... Your teeth will get pearly white after using this treatment for awhile...

I use peroxide 3-5 times a week as a mouth wash/gargle. It helps to keep my mouth feeling fresh, and it is a natural teeth whitener.

Blood Stain Removal

Rinse loose blood with cool water. Apply hydrogen peroxide to both sides of material. Repeat until all traces of blood have disolved. Works on furniture as well.

I had ruined yet another pair of panties during my period, and I noticed my bottle of peroxide on my counter. Remembering that I had read that it worked for blood stains, I poured straight peroxide on the spot, watched it fizz up and promptly put the underwear in the wash. It was gone! It doesn't completely remove older stains, but it definitely fades them.

After you cleanse the cut on your finger with hydrogen peroxide and find the blood got on your favorite shirt/blouse, use that same hydrogen peroxide to remove the blood from that article of clothing. Just soak the blood stain with undiluted hydrogen peroxide for a for a good five to ten minutes. You will be able to see the blood vanishing before your eyes. Rinse with cold water and wash the article of clothing as usual.

Stomach Ailments

I just recently started taking 35% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide internally and I'm up to 6 drops a day in distilled water. So far I haven't noticed anything except feeling a little nauseous right after drinking it. I have read some things about it being corrosive and was wondering what that does to the stomach. I have stomach issues all the time. I was once told by a doctor that I had an ulcer (although he never really determined this for sure, it was more like a guess after I told him of my symptoms) I'm not convinced that's in fact what my issue is. I was hoping the HP would help my stomach problems as well as my suspected candida overgrowth. However, now I'm worried that the HP might exacerbate my stomach and digestive problems. Does anyone have any more info regarding this? Thanks in advance.

I am up to 23 drops 3 x per day. I can tell you be sure to take the h202 at least 1 hour or more before you eat anything and at least 3 hours after you eat anything and I mean anything even a cracker. The food and the h202 do not mix well and your stomach will get upset. In your case with a sensitive stomach you have to be even more careful. I am only experiencing a slight queeziness but it goes away in 15-20 minutes. My only complaint at this point is that it makes you really hot and you sweat easily when you do any kind of activity. I am guessing that is good for removing the toxins.

The article I read said to take 3 to 4 lecithin capsules with h202 or 35% hydrogen peroxide-food grade only and should be duluted with distilled water only! I do have a question for you though. Do you have recipe for the treatment you are doing? I will say I am not a doctor but, I have a strong belief that this will work. I read about this in the 1970's.

good luck!

Let me tell you of my experience using 35% food grade H2O2 based on the book The One-Minute Cure. This book is basically a copy from the book Hydrogen Peroxide: Medical Miracle Paperback by William Campbell Douglass. I started the treatment & worked up to 23 drops in 6-8 oz of water but started to have stomach pains which has been diagnosed as a peptic ulcer. I have discontinued the treatment because the pain is too great. I can't prove or disprove H2O2 is the cause but I don't think its pure coincidence. I believe the use of H2O2 is the cause of my peptic ulcer. I would caution folks about using this treatment.

Hello Harry,

How well I know that feeling of ulcer pain, but that was years before I ever tried the oral H202. Eliminating sweet milk and bleached flour got rid of most all my GI tract
problems years before I tried the oral H202 and like you, found that my stomach just would not tolerate it. Well, enjoying a happy stomach a whole lot more than an ailing one, I left off all thoughts of H202 until I read about Bill's inhalation method. I have tried it several times without stomach problems. So you might try his method also and see if it works for you. That is what I love about this site. One can learn a lot.

Regarding the 35% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide. I have read that it's more for cleaning commercial counters. I definitely would never use it internally.

What you need to buy is Hydrogen Peroxide 3% which is readily available in the US.

Here in the UK I found a 6% product so I simply use half the recommended number of drops. Add them to a glass of spring water or mineral water and drink. You need a medicine dropper to accurately measure the amount you're taking.


Please no, never take over-the-counter 3 percent hydrogen peroxide orally. It is treated with preservatives that can cause GI upset or worse. Ok to rinse mouth but should be followed by clean water rinse. Use distilled water and food grade h2o2 mixed to make oral drink of a few drops of the food grade h2o2. Do not put full strength anywhere on your body. If you don't believe me dip a toothpick in the 35% and touch it to the back of your hand.
