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.

I just turned 41 and started getting horrible indigestion, as painful as the worst freezer brain ever, but in the center of my chest. After trying Prilosec for a month, what a joke. I called my nurse after an 8 agonizing hour bout of indigestion, she prescribed Prevacid @ $178 for a 30 day supply, this was also crap! I was laying on my floor in agony and could hardly breathe it hurt so bad after taking 2 doses. 3-4 hours later I felt no improvement. I don't know why, but I got up and decided out of desparation to try drinking a few drops of regular bathroom peroxide, 4-5 looking drops worth from the cap, into a half full water bottle, less than 1 minute later, no exagerration, try for yourself, there wasn't even the faintest bit of pain! I went to bed and laid there waiting for it to return, it never came back, I was asleep within minutes! Everybody should give this a try, its amazing! This stuff is some kind of miracle concoction, I don't know what else to say, just try it!

Store Bought (Not Food Grade) Hydrogen Peroxide

Posted by Robert Henry (Ten Mile, Tn. ) on 09/17/2014

HI YA'LL DOIN TODAY, , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Been reading all these posts to the fact that you must have have pharmaceutical grade Hydrogen Peroxide or the boggy man will get you. Ted and Bill tell us they have to compromise because the people they try to help are dirt poor. Also, Bill Munro was the fellow who educated us all on Hydrogen Peroxide and he lived from 64 to 89 and cured two cancers with the cheap store brand.

YEP, I use the pharmaceutical kind because I can afford it. What we are doing is preventing some folks from using hydrogen peroxide to improve their health situation. They accept this as fact when it's just your opinion.

Let's make a pact, don't insist that Hydrogen Peroxide must be pharmaceutical grade. Why? BECAUSE IT DOESN'T.

Hello Mr. Robert Henry! I just wanted to add to your post.

On here EC, it is recommended if using the store bought peroxide. What you want to look at is the active ingredients to be 3% hydrogen peroxide, and inactive ingredient to be purified water. This is all that should be listed. If it has stabilizer listed, do not purchase. There are a few around if they have not changed them yet. Always read the bottle when in the store and never assume anything. Even when I go back and buy extra I always check the label to make sure no change has occurred .

I also watch a video on youtube by this guy Tony Pantalleresco where he shows if you freeze this store bought peroxide, then open and pour off the liquid it will be food grade full strength peroxide. Water freezes peroxide don't, so when you pour it off its pure peroxide. So that's what he says to do. You can google him on youtube. Don't forget to dilute this if you use this solution as it will be very powerful.

Thanks Rebel.

PS: never put peroxide in metal or use metal spoons. Check some places first that I have found without stabilizers Fred's, Family Dollar and some brand that I bought at a Sam's Wholesale Club; that's a few if they have not added them yet.... always a good ideal to stock up, we are losing more freedoms everyday and we never know when it will go away. Hence our availability to Iodine and supplies to make it.

Does anhyone have a link to that video? Much appreciated!

I have started to use H202 on the brown sun spots on my left cheek after reading on Earth Clinic that it would fade them. Last night was the 2nd night. I took a cotton ball and soaked it in h202 and then held it to the area for about 15 minutes. Can report that after 2 nights they look like they are fading. Will report back.

I don't know what they are called, but I've gotten like these puffy marks in my mouth like on my tounge that hurt like hell and I found that if you pour a little hydrogen peroxide in your hand and stick your tongue in it and wait like thirty seconds until bubles form around the mark and rinse it off and do it a couple times the mark disappears in like a third of the time it normally would to just tough it out.

Hydrogen Peroxide 3% solution has cured my toothache. I had a nasty cavity that was causing a lot of pain. I couldn't chew or put any pressure on my teeth on the left hand side. I read about the amazing cures with hydrogen peroxide & decided to try it. I took a shot glass and diluted it 50/50. From the first time I swished the rinse to the present, it has worked like magic! Not only has my toothache gone away, but my gums look & feel so much better! I also put hydrogen peroxide drops in my ears to prevent cold & visrus. It has taken away earaches and sore throats.

H202 for toothache: I was recommended by a friend to gargle for one minute with H2O2 3% solution 2 or 3 times per day and repeat for three or so days to relieve throbbing pain. And IT WORKED.

Gargling with Hydrogen Peroxide cured my peritonsillar abscess. I would not have believed it if I read it on this site. But, I was facing a very painful procedure to drain a peritonsillar abscess and read on a different site that gargling with hydrogen peroxide sometimes helps. I did two gargles about 2 minutes apart. Less than 10 minutes later I coughed up (I know, GROSS) a whole bunch of blood and puss. Instantly my throat felt better.

Use only 3%. Dilute by adding 5 tablespoons to 1 quart or 32 oz of distilled water. It works wonders for just about everything that ails you.

It cured my cat with feline aids.

I started to feel a little bit of pain and had some swelling around one of my bottom teeth. After reading on this wonderful site about HP for cavities, I decided to give it a try. I simply gargle with the HP one time for about one minute - and the cavity was stopped in its tracks! Unbelievable to me is the fact that cavities can be stopped like that. I grew up believing that cavities had to be drilled and filled, but thanks to this site and its posters, I now know that is just not true. As a beautiful side benefit, my bad breath is gone now, too. Thanks to EC for that!

I have used hydrogen peroxide to cure stomach ulcers. Just place a few drops in a 8 oz. glass of water and take it daily about three or 4 days and it will heal the stomach.

I didn't receive the same results taking peroxide for ulcers. I started the food grade hydrogen peroxide oxygenation protocol 5 days ago and am today up to 7 drops in distilled water 3 times a day and my stomach is killing me!!! The ulcers weren't bothering me very much before beginning the peroxide. I will continue on to 8 drops tomorrow but will probably have to stop after that as my stomach is getting worse by the day.

D Tob, STOP!!! If it hurts, it's not for you, or at least not at these dosages!! If in the future you might want to try it again, stay at ONE drop a few days, if no pain, go to two drops for a few days etc. NOT EVERYONE can do the "protocol" as is. We are all different.

Also, after a few days of rest from any treatment, you might want to try any other Ulcers treatment. But start SLOW AND LOW!

It is very important to be properly alkalized prior to H2O2 remedies.

To heal stomach ulcers, you may also consider acid reducing otc meds like Zantac, Tagamet, among others, in combination with 1-2 grms of Chlorella.

EC: Warning! Please do not use 35% Food Grade H202 until you read various instructions from the manufacturers about how to dilute it properly. 35% food grade can cause severe burns and must be diluted down to 3% or lower. You can read reader reported side effects and warnings on our Food Grade Section: https://www.earthclinic.com/remedies/hydrogen_peroxide2.html#FGP

I recently went to the doctor to see what was growing on my tounge it was white and did not seem to bother me except it was a abnormal growth of some sort I was confused and a little worried since I'm in my 50's and never had this be before. To find out it was a wart called papillion it is a virus and she said I need to to see a oral surgeon to get it removed. I went home did some research started treating it with ACV on a q-tip and I used a nasil spay of hydrogen Peroxide food grade deluded as Bill describes and sprayed it several times a day and at night before going to bed in a matter of two weeks it has shurnk and is disappearing before my eyes. I now can cancel my appointment with the oral surgeon and saved my self a couple of hundred dollars and the stress of having my wart cut off. So happy it is going away. Thanks for all the info I hope this helps some one else too.

Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide(full strength) cured my wart on my index finger that has been plaguing me for 3 years. I've tried every suggestion banana peels, apple cider vinegar and duct tape. I just didn't have the patience to stick with these for months. I just bought H2o2 at my local health food store and took a cue tip and held it on the wart for as long as I could stand. It took like 10 minutes(also I've tried a band aid to hold in place). After the 2nd or third application it started falling off. Thanks earth clinic. I've been reading you guys for years.

hi, 35% strength or 3% strength you used? how much time you left between applications? - thanks

Replied by Andrea C

Aaaarrhhhh!! Do not use full strength 35% hydrogen peroxide!!! Use only distilled water and put 1% hydrogen peroxide to 11 & water this makes 3% 1x11=3%. I hope to God you never used full 35% it's lethal!! Love Andrea C

Great site here. It reminded me of the "accidental" cure I gave myself using H202. I had warts on the bottom of my right foot for months. The doctor would freeze them off and I was given cream. They would always come back. One day in the bathroom I was looking at them and said, "what the heck!". I poured H202 (the 3% drug store variety) over my foot. I didn't wash the peroxide off - I left it dry on. The next morning they were gone and never returned. That was 6 years ago
