Drinking Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide

Updated on April 23, 2014

Simple Oxygen Treatment

Maybe it sounds too simplistic, but most diseases can be prevented if the cells in our bodies are properly oxygenated. That's why I started writing about hydrogen peroxide. You don't have to be a chemist to understand that hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) is made up of water and oxygen. Our bodies know how to use the extra oxygen atom. It's really (almost) that simple.

Chemists explain that hydrogen peroxide increases the rate of oxidation in the body by stimulating oxidative enzymes. It stimulates the natural processes in the body to utilize more oxygen.

The great thing about drinking food grade hydrogen peroxide is that you can purchase it in health food stores or online. It can be self-administered and it is very inexpensive. The simplicity of the treatment may be what makes so many of us skeptical about its effectiveness. Yet, increasing the process of oxidation in the cells in your body is one of the most powerful things you can do for your health. If you follow instructions, it is both powerful and safe, but it is very important that you follow the instructions. I cover the instructions in this article and I will tell you where you can get more detailed information.

Many of us believe that medical science has progressed far beyond thes simple home remedies. But consider, our own bodies produce hydrogen peroxide to fight infection and disease. Mother's milk contains a high amount of hydrogen peroxide, especially the first milk secreted after the birth.

I do not write because I know more than anyone else. My purpose is to evaluate the information available and try to arrive at honest answers. I have read some opinions that say there is no way drinking diluted 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide can increase the oxygen levels in the body. I have read that serious stomach problems can result from ingesting 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide. It is true that the product is not approved by the FDA for internal use.

I'd like to examine these objections.

Hydrogen Peroxide and Oxygen

One of the best sources of information I found concerning hydrogen peroxide therapy and oxygen was published by The Arthritis Trust of America. An article entitled H2O2 Therapy helped me understand the chemistry behind hydrogen peroxide therapy. The article draws a clear distinction between "oxygenation" and "oxidation":

The problem is not the delivery of oxygen to the cells but utilization by the cells. Hydrogen Peroxide affects utilization or oxidation dramatically...

There is compelling physiological argument in favor of hydrogen peroxide therapy. Nathaniel Altman is the author of a book called, Oxygen Healing Therapies for Optimum Health & Vitality. Mr. Altman was interviewed for an article in the Family Health News. He says there is a simple philosophy behind bio-oxidative therapies (I like simple). Hydrogen peroxide promotes oxidation, which breaks toxins down into carbon dioxide and water and eliminates them from the body.

My purpose here is to give you a small sampling of the scientific explanations for the functioning of hydrogen peroxide in the body. You can click here to read the articles referenced above.

Drinking Diluted Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide

There are some doctors who support hydrogen peroxide therapy, but are not comfortable recommending it to be taken orally. However, a number of books have been written which confirm my own experience that 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide is safe as long as important instructions are followed.

It is extremely important to dilute before taking. The instructions I follow have me taking a maximum of 25 drops in 6-8 ounces of water. That is in the "build-up" stage starting with 3 drops and increasing by a drop each day for the first 23 days. After 23 days, the dosage is steadily reduced to a "maintenance" dose of 3 drops in 6-8 ounces of water. Also, I never drink it less than 3 hours after eating to avoid any harmful reactions in my stomach. I do not eat less than an hour after drinking for the same reason.

35% food grade hydrogen peroxide is dangerous to handle. You must avoid getting the solution on your skin and keep it away from children or anyone who might accidentally drink it without diluting. I am aware of warnings about potential stomach problems, but I am not aware of any serious problems when directions are followed properly. My personal experience has been 100% free of any discomfort or reaction of any kind. As of this writing March 17, 2014, I have been taking it for about two months.

The Powerful Benefits

Now for the best part. Drinking food grade hydrogen peroxide is one of the most powerful things you can do for your health. Many infections are developing resistance to antibiotics. This is a serious and growing problem in medicine. Hydrogen peroxide simply stimulates the process of oxidation in the cells of your body and eliminates toxins naturally. When oxidation is working properly in all the cells of your body, then most diseases will be prevented. There can be no greater benefit from any treatment than to promote oxidation. Cancer cells cannot live in teh presence of oxygen.

I write about drinking 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide because I believe in the science behind it and I drink it myself. My experience only covers a couple months as of this writing. I have no diseases or symptoms and I strongly believe drinking hydrogen peroxide will help me keep it that way. I encourage everyone to do your own research. When I was in college I read a book about eating fruit. The author recommended an all-fruit diet and built a very strong case for it. He convinced me so I began eating only fruit. Then I read some more and discovered this author had died from disease at a very early age. That was the end of my experiment with the fruit diet. The moral of the story is not to take my word for it. Read more before making a decision.

The One Minute Cure is a good starting point to learn more. Alll you have to do is google "the one minute cure pdf" and click on the Freedom School website where you can download a free copy of the book. 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide is available in some health food stores. I found it easier to order online which you can do by clicking the image below. I have been drinking 35% food grade for almost two months following the instruction in The One Minute Cure. I am still working on my first 8 oz. bottle.

      Tlovaj...Thank-you very much for sharing your ideas. It is helpful to consider all the aspects of any new or unusual treatment. And thanks for pointing out the dead link. If you Google "One Minute Cure pdf" one of the selections should be a free download of the book. That's how I read it and I have updated the article. Thank-you again.

      I have never heard about hydrogen peroxide therapy. It makes sense to me (I have BS in organic chemistry), but I see a lot of potential problems with treatments (I have about a decade of experience in pharmacy too). First of all is how to send free oxygen atom to the right place in organism. It is very reactive particle, it craves for bonding and it will for sure find a 'partner' as fast as possible. It will not 'know' if it's dealing with microbe or healthy cell. It only cares about electrons.

      This problem can be minor one, if we consider the fact microbes are more prone to all kinds of interactions (they are foreign agents in the body after all), much bigger problem is the answer of the immune system on the peroxide. Will 'fighters' against foreign agents fight the disease or try to catch free oxygen? This seems pretty unpredictable situation to me.

      And there is also one more important fact - we are not all the same, somebody has higher level of HCl in stomach, other has scars in the tissue, we have different levels of activity of enzymes, etc.

      However, I like the idea of using simple drug like this one, but under the supervision of somebody with experience with this particular treatment and medical knowledge. Peroxide is also important part of at least one 'miracle drug' - honey, what proves presented theory.

      By the way - link to The One Minute Cure is dead.

      I hope my comment helps a bit and will maybe start a constructive debate:)
