Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2)
When moisture (H20) interacts with ozone (03) in the atmosphere, it picks up an added oxygen
atom and falls to the earth as rain which contains an abundance of H202. Other natural sources are raw, unprocessed vegetal
foods such as fruits, vegetables, grasses, and especially wild plants and herbs. It also occurs in mammal and fish livers,
and mother's milk, particularly colostrum. A natural source of great hydrogen peroxide concentration is the renowned healing
waters of Lourdes, France. Hydrogen peroxide is also found in the cells of the body. It is created there from water and oxygen,
and acts as a major defence in the immune system. H202 is produced in healthy individuals in sufficient quantity to
counteract unwanted bacterial invaders. Growths in the body such as yeasts, viruses, and tumours are often anaerobic,
and the extra atom of nascent oxygen in hydrogen peroxide halts their spread.
Hydrogen peroxide has a vital role in every system of the body, and is essential to the metabolism of protein, carbohydrates,
fats, vitamins, and other nutrients. Except for the problems that can result from its overuse, taking concentrated H202 compares
with taking concentrated nutrients of any kind, including vitamin supplements. The nutrients necessary for health can normally
be supplied by whole, unprocessed foods, but during a health crisis concentrated products may be needed. However, as Max Gerson
found with his advanced cancer patients, certain vitamin and mineral supplements made their condition worse, quite possibly
because of the energy required for the metabolism of these substances. In contrast, hydrogen peroxide appears to promote energy.
This may be due to its ability to destroy micro-organisms that sap the body's energy with infections and low-grade fevers;
it may be that h2o2 is one of the metabolic factors deficient in the chronically ill.
Hydrogen peroxide should not be considered a panacea of healing. There is experimental evidence
that excessive intake may inhibit enzyme systems and ignite a rash of free radicals that adversely affect immunity and damage
certain cellular structures. On the other hand, peroxide adherents point to a mountain of supportive research, and claim the
product to be completely safe if used according to suggested guidelines.
This is not a new remedy but one that has helped thousands afflicted with virus- and yeast-related
diseases over the past seventy years. Respected medical professionals have benefited from hydrogen peroxide and recommended
it highly, among them heart transplant surgeon Christian Barnard of South Africa, who claims it cured his arthritis. It has
also been reported that hydrogen peroxide is administered by the Gerson Institute clinic, which is well-known for its nutritional
treatment of cancer. Dr. Kurt Donsbach has used hydrogen peroxide extensively on hundreds of patients with unusual benefits.
According to Donsbach, thirty-five percent food grade hydrogen peroxide is by far the best agent for the destruction of yeast
and fungal colonies he knows of. Intravenous infusion of hydrogen peroxide has proven to be one of the most dramatic
healing agents he have ever witnessed. Specifically for systemic candidiasis patients. He reports allergies disappearing
in five to ten days, and a total clearance of the yeast in twenty-one to twenty-eight days.
Part of the Donsbach treatment protocol includes adrenal cortex extract and an antiviral
immune stimulant called isoprinosine, He has also successfully used hydrogen peroxide in cases of cancer, arthritis, and various
other conditions of immune deficiency. Because it is unpatentable, costs very little, is often self-administered, and can
theoretically take the place of many other medications, hydrogen peroxide has few backers among the national medical associations,
the drug industries, or even the vitamin and supplement manufacturers.
As mentioned earlier, hydrogen peroxide may generate dangerous quantities of free radicals.
However, there is good evidence that the nascent oxygen from H202 in the body combines with and eliminates destructive free
radicals Since protection against the possibility of free radical damage is fairly simple with the use of antioxidants, they
should be used for this purpose as well as for general immune enhancement. That is, one can increase antioxidants during oxygenation
therapy to ensure against possible oxidation excesses. One of the best antioxidant food sources is the wheat- or barley-grass
. They promote oxygen enrichment while simultaneously providing their own antioxidant vitamins and minerals; they also contain
one of the richest natural sources of the enzyme superoxide dismutase, a key antioxidant. Alternatives include the following
antioxidant enzymes, often recommended in combination with hydrogen peroxide and other hyper-oxidative therapies and commonly
available in one supplement: superoxide dismutase (SOD), glutathione peroxidase (GP), methionine reductase (MR), and catalase
Oral Application and Dosage:
"Food grade 35% Hydrogen Peroxide" or products containing it must be used. They are sometimes
carried by health food stores. Standard 3% hydrogen peroxide from drug stores is not to be taken internally, since it contains
a number of strong chemical stabilizers. In fact, some researchers claim it to be unfit even as a mouthwash, especially for
those who are ill.
Note: Hydrogen peroxide must not be taken by those with organ transplants because it may
boost immunity sufficiently to override the immune-suppressing drugs these people take to prevent rejection of the transplant.
Food grade 35% hydrogen peroxide must first be diluted. It combines well with pure water
or aloe vera juice in 1/2 cup quantities. Adding a squeeze of lemon juice to water containing H202 removes the bitter flavour.
Do not mix in carrot juice, or carbonated or alcoholic beverages, because these cause an unfavourable reaction. Take on an
empty stomach and not with other supplements or medicines.
Begin with one drop H202 a day for the first week. Then increase to one drop three times
a day, and every three days add one more drop per dose until a level of about fifteen drops three times a day is reached.
Healing reactions and discharges of toxins sparked by H2O2 can be extreme, so caution is urged. If an upset stomach, headaches,
boils, or other strong eliminative reaction occurs, it is best not to increase the dosage any further until symptoms clear.
If reactions are extreme, the program can be stopped for a few days, then resumed at the last dosage level. In severe candidiasis
and for degenerative diseases, some individuals find that the peak effective dosage is twenty-five drops three times daily
for up to three weeks; then the dosage is tapered back, at the same rate it was increased, to fifteen drops three times a
day, until symptoms clear. The program can be tailored to an individual's ability to accept cleansing and renewal.
One can expect improvement in the symptoms of candidiasis after a few weeks,
although complete recovery, especially in severe cases, may take four to six months. After symptoms subside, a maintenance
dose of five to fifteen drops weekly (one to three drops a day for five days a week) may be needed. If commercial capsules
and fluids are used containing food grade hydrogen peroxide in combination with aloe vera juice or other substances, the above
protocol can be followed; these products usually list the amount of 35% food grade H202 they contain.
Intravenous and External Applications of Hydrogen Peroxide (HP)
Intravenous and intra-arterial
injection of hydrogen peroxide (hereafter abbreviated "HP") must be done by a trained physician. This method
is faster-acting than oral HP and is appropriate for the most advanced cases of systemic candidiasis and degenerative conditions.
Note: Although less than ideal, the common drugstore variety of 3% HP is acceptable for most
external applications. It should not, however, be ingested or used as a mouthwash; for these purposes food grade HP must be
used. To make 3% food grade HP: Add one ounce of 35% food grade HP to 11 ounces of distilled water.
Bathing in peroxide-infused water enhances the effect of oral HP therapy, especially
in yeast-induced vaginitis (add one to four pints of 3% HP to a standard-size bath tub half-filled with warm water, and soak
Externally applied gels of HP in aloe vera gel are becoming widely available.
This is another way to get large quantities of oxygen directly in the blood without having to drink or inject HP.
who are overcoming genital yeasts may re-infect each other during intercourse. The male genital area can be washed with
3% HP before and after intercourse to minimize the exchange of yeasts and other infections, although this is not
a safe method of protection. for either partner, against infections.
For athlete's foot, soak feet in 3% HP once daily at night. Athlete's foot often indicates
an internal yeast condition. For acne, ringworm, and fungal conditions in the pubic area or elsewhere on the skin, dab
3% HP on with a cotton ball; avoid getting in eyes.
For a toothpaste, add 3% HP to baking soda until a paste is formed. Or, simply dip brush
in 3% HP solution HP inhibits decay-causing bacteria and treats gum disease. As a mouthwash or gargle, use 3% HP to reduce
oral sores, and stop plaque build-up It also works well diluted by half with water.
To remove poison sprays and parasites, from the surface of produce, soak fruits and
vegetables for 20 minutes in a sink full of water to which '/4 cup 3% HP is added; or use 1 tablespoon 3% HP per gallon
of soak water. A quicker method is to spray 3% HP on produce, wait a minute or two, then rinse.
Spray or water house plants with a solution of one ounce of 3% HP to a quart of water.
They will become vibrant from the added oxygen.
To purify drinking water of bacteria, add seven drops 35% food grade HP per gallon, or one
pint 35% HP to 1,000 gallons. Many harmful chemicals found in water are also oxidized and effectively neutralized by
Animals with arthritis, worms, and aging diseases usually perk up with HP. Add two
drops of 35% HP to drinking water daily for a ten-pound animal and adjust the dosage according to weight for other animals·
Giving pets chemical free, quality feed is also necessary for their long-term health.
