That’s a little brown bottle of rocket fuel! Hydrogen Peroxide, Nature’s Super Fluid.
H2O2 A Super Fluid A friend of mine told me how she hated getting sick as a child. All the remedies were just horrible. Cod liver oil for colds, gargle salt for a sore throat, iodine for cuts, butter for burns. Yes butter. She felt her parents were cheap, always going to the cupboard and slathering on whatever and saying ‘this is how my Mom and your great Grandmother took care of us’. Today she’d call 911. How saturated fat heals a blister was never fully explained of course, the cod liver oil was really just a pun, she now hates salt and her Dad’s marine kit iodine was equivalent to hot sauce on wounds. Horrible yes. But relief came in the form of a brown plastic bottle, for her cuts at least. It was 3% hydrogen peroxide. Her parents decided to enter the 20th century and spent 25 cents for this powerful, versatile and healing wonder fluid. Some home remedies are worth human trials, others just toast. Fortunately the studies of the healing properties of hydrogen peroxide, first written about in 1818, have proven it to be an anti-bacterial anti-viral elixir.
A bit of history
It was French chemist Louis-Jacques Thenard who first discovered hydrogen peroxide, eventually manufacturing what he called Oxygen Water. That is because hydrogen peroxide is water, H2O, with an extra oxygen molecule, making H2O2. Its a naturally occurring substance created when our ozone layer, O3, is struck by ultraviolet light in the presence of moisture, whereby a single oxygen molecule leaves the ozone to bond to water giving us H2O2. Rain then provides us trace amounts of hydrogen peroxide through fresh fruits and vegetables, but our bodies also make it, with the highest concentration in a mother’s breast milk. Thenard’s Oxygen Water didn’t find a market, but once again the French inspired a revolution, this time in health, which found its way to America’s shore.
So of course you know that oxygen is essential to life, we can survive up to 14 days without water, 8 weeks without food, we are dead after 15 minutes without oxygen. Its used by our quadrillion plus cells for complex metabolic processes that rid cellular toxins, maintain immunity, support proper brain function, rebuild tissues, release enzymes to assimilate nutrients, counter aging and more. Our challenge is to get enough of it. Our atmospheric oxygen supply less than 200 years ago was 40%, today its 19-21%. And this lower percentage is being spoiled by pollution, while deforestation eliminates a natural oxygen generator. The ingestation of junk food, stress, acidity, taps into oxygen reserves taking it away from its primary metabolic function. And our lung capacity decreases 5% every decade of life. What we end up with is an anaerobic environment in our bodies, meaning oxygen starved, that is the breeding ground of parasites and infectious agents.
Early Scientific Research
Some of the earliest writings on hydrogen peroxide appeared in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 1888, where I.N. Love M.D wrote:
“After a six months’ trial of the peroxide of hydrogen, considering the nature of the agent and its effect upon purulent matter and bacteria, I feel justified in concluding the peroxide of hydrogen is a most efficient means of cleansing purulent surfaces, deep cavities and sinuses, and stimulating the healing process in ulcerating parts. As a destroyer of microbes it is of great value as a local application in diptheria and scarlet fever, ozaena, coryza and whooping cough.”
Dr. Edward Rosenow (1875-1966) held the basic tenet that we live in a sea of microorganisms, with our bodies being a refuge for millions of these little invaders who set up shop in the goldy lox region of their choosing. It is here that they eat, multiply, fight others, infect, pollute, perform metamorphosis and their presence shows up as inflammation, calcification of joints, kidney/liver stones, hardened arteries, brain plaque and cellular death. He notated the description of 35 diseases that could be eliminated or controlled by the intake of oxygen to create an aerobic, oxygen rich, environment that kills off harmful bacteria that can’t thrive in its presence. Hydrogen peroxide is the easiest way to enrich the body with oxygen, it is an oxygen supplement.
Over the last 25 years over 7000 articles have been written about hydrogen peroxide’s efficacy, with the work of Dr. Charles Farr and Father Richard Willhelm, amongst dozens, presenting data from both oral and intravenous use laying the ground work. At first it was not fully understood why the oxygen content of blood and body tissue increase dramatically when it is ingested. It was thought that our cells stripped the extra oxygen molecule away, leaving the water to join the rest our vital body fluids, but this however in not conclusive.Then Dr. Farr was able demonstrate that hydrogen peroxide stimulates enzymes systems, which increase metabolic rate, causing small arteries to dilate which increase blood flow and the body’s distribution and consumption of oxygen to increase. Its use was wide spread through the 1940′s until prescription medications were introduced.
Now the benefits. This is a partial list of sicknesses reported successfully treated with hydrogen therapy. It is of course highly recommended to seek advice and guidance of a doctor experienced in oxygen therapy.

Formulations and Proper Use
Now hydrogen peroxide is distributed in percentages of purity. Here is the list.
3.5% Pharmaceutical Grade: This is the grade sold at your local drugstore. It is not recommended for internal use. It contains an assortment of stabilizers which shouldn’t be ingested. Various stabilizers include: acetanilide, phenol, sodium stanate and tertrasodium phosphate.
6% Beautician Grade: This is used in beauty shops to color hair and is not recommended for internal use.
30% Reagent Grade: This is used for various scientific experimentation and also contains stabilizers. It is also not for internal use.
30% to 32% Electronic Grade: This is used to clean electronic parts and not for internal use.
35% Technical Grade: This is a more concentrated product than the Reagent Grade and differs slightly in that phosphorus is added to help neutralize any chlorine from the water used to dilute it.
35% Food Grade: This is used in the production of foods like cheese, eggs, and whey-containing products. It is also sprayed on the foil lining of aseptic packages containing fruit juices and milk products. THIS IS THE ONLY GRADE RECOMMENDED FOR INTERNAL USE.
90% Fuel Grade: This is used as an oxygen source for rocket fuel.
The 3% used on skin abrasions gives you a tickle, but any higher grade to touch your skin will burn the bleep out of you. A simple douse of water and you are fine. A pint of 3% hydrogen peroxide has 10 pints of oxygen, while the food-grade 35% has 130 pints. It’s recommended use consists of drops into 8ozs of liquid, so the intake is very diluted. The internal use of hydrogen peroxide is not condoned by the FDA. Some speculate that its because its cheap and non-patentable. But in light of the many years of research, doctors such as those who practice at the Bio-Health Center in Reno Nevada, are providing integrated care centered around oxygen.
The following is a home treatment plan to kill all the bad stuff.
Day # -Number of Drops/ Times Per Day 6-8 oz glass of juice, distilled water, aloe vera
1 – 3 / 3
2 – 4 / 3
3 – 5 / 3
4 – 6 / 3

6 – 8 / 3

13 – 20 / 3
14 – 22 / 3
15 – 24 / 3
16 – 25 / 3
It is best to drink your healing beverage on an empty stomach or 3 hours after eating. You will experience a unique after taste, hang in there its worth it and just have a chaser close by if its just too much. Also make sure to drink plenty of distilled water to flush out all those intruders. Then all you have to do is maintain your clean temple with the following suggested intake to taper your treatment to zero.
I have been on this regime myself and have witnessed the benefits of painfree, anti-inflammation and a daily energy boost from this experiment so far. How about you?
In most situations after the above 16 day program, the amount of H202 can be tapered off gradually as follows:
25 drops once every other day for 1 week
25 drops once every third day for 2 weeks
25 drops once every fourth day for 3 weeks

It is this author’s mission to push for prevention and keep you out of the hospital. While oxygen therapy has many proven benefits, it is only part of a overall regime of exercise, eating nutrient dense foods/juices, meditation/quiet time and laughter.
To your health and prosperity.
