Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy

Monday, March 29, 2010

Based on my initial research (compiled from others' research compiled from various scientific sources) let's look at some basic scientific statistics that both Doctors and scientists have found out about, Hydrogen Peroxide and its affect within the human body. 

Hydrogen Peroxide and its affect within the human body:
  • A naturally produced, purposeful molecule in the body.
  • Functions to aid membrane transport
  • "An essential metabolite, meaning that it is necessary to life's process"
    • Involved in protein, carbohydrate and fat metabolism
      • Acts like insulin in that it aids the transport of sugar through the body
    • Regulates thermogenesis (heat production via the thyroid, as it creates "Intraceullar Thermogenesis", ie, a warming of your cells)
    • Acts as a hormonal messenger
    • Stimulates and regulates immune functions
    • Regulates energy production 

  • Vitamin C promotes Hydrogen Peroxide to oxidize foreign invaders in the body, by producing 'Hydroxyl Radicals", which kills (this process is called 'phagocytosis') such invaders as parasites, viruses, bacteria, yeast/ fungi, etc.

  • Possible uses for:
    • Growing better food
    • Purifying water without chlorine complications
    • Increasing thyroid activity
    • Hyper-oxygenation could help the body purge heavy metals, chemicals, and toxins
    • Enhancing the body's ability to utilize vitamins, minerals, and amino acids from the food we eat
    Physicians have independently discovered such treatments to be effective against:
    • Some types of cancer*
    • Emphysema
    • Depression
    • Leukemia
    • Arthritis
    • Coronary heart disease
    • Arterial circulation disorders
    • Colitis
    • Gum diseases
    • Assorted childrens' diseases
    • Temporal Arteritis
    • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease,
    • The Yeast Syndrome (candida),
    • Various Viral Infections & Auto-Immune related diseases
      • Shingles
      • Multiple Sclerosis
      • Lupus Erythematosis
      • AIDS
    • Dental gum diseases
    • Colds (35% H2O2 in cold humidifier)

        * According to the American Cancer Society: 
    "there is no scientific evidence that Hydrogen Peroxide is a safe, effective or useful cancer treatment".

    Hydrogen Peroxide: Medical Miracle

    Now, before I proceed with any suggestions regarding how to utilize Hydrogen Peroxide, whether it be topical or internal, I need to inform you as to some basics.
    1. There are two methods of administering hydrogen peroxide: Orally or Intravenously.
      • Intravenously. This method, of course, should only be through an approved medical practitioner, specializing in this treatment process (see end notes below).
      • Orally. From what I gather, this has been used successfully throughout the past 70 years (if not more), without ill effect, as long as the suggested amount of dilution is properly adhered to. Too much ingested at the start of an 'Oral Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy' treatment has been known to cause nausea.
    2. There are two 'common' forms of the H202 solution for the treatments and uses stated in this post, which may be easily found for purchase in the US.
      1. 3%. This is your common dilution, found at most drug-stores. This solution, however, has been known to contain potentially harmful additives that would be ill-advised for oral consumption. Use this for external/ topical methodologies and household uses.
      2. 35%  'Food Grade'. This dilution does not contain the harmful 'stabilizers/ additives' like most 3% solutions contain. Following proper dilution instructions can assist you in preparing a 'Food Grade' dilution of 3%.
    Suggested Uses (using 3% H2O2 solution):
    • In the House
      • Laundry: Add 8 ozs. to your wash in place of bleaches.
      • House and garden plants: Put 1 oz. in 1 quart of water. Water or mist plants with this solution.
      • Sprouting seeds: Add 1 oz. to a pint of water and soak the seeds overnight. Add the same amount of hydrogen peroxide each time you rinse the seeds.
      • Pets: For small animals (dogs & cats) use 1 oz. to 1 qt. of water.
    • Nasal Spray: Mix 1 Tablespoon of 3.5% hydrogen peroxide with 8 oz. (1 Cup) of distilled water. Use 2-3 squirts of nasal spray when you start experiencing congestion.
    • In the Kitchen
      • Vegetable soak: Add 1/4 cup to a full sink of cold water. Soak light-skinned (like lettuce) 20 minutes, thicker skinned (like cucumbers) 30 minutes. Drain, dry and refrigerate. Prolongs freshness. If time is a problem, spray vegetables (and fruits) with a solution of 3%. Let stand for a few minutes, rinse and dry.
      • To freshen kitchen: Keep a spray bottle in the kitchen. Use it to wipe off counter tops and appliances. It will disinfect and give the kitchen a fresh smell. Works great in the refrigerator and kid's school lunch boxes.
    • In the Bathroom
      • Facial: Use on a cotton ball as a facial freshener after washing. (Remember: do not use 35% grade!)
      • Rejuvenating detoxifying bath: Add 6 ozs. to 1/2 tub of water. May increase hydrogen peroxide up to 2 cups per bath. Soak at least 1/2 hour.
        • Or, add 1/2 cup 35% H2O2 , 1/2 cup sea salt, and 1/2 cup baking soda or epsom salts to bath water and soak.
      • Foot soak: Add 1-1/2 ozs. 35% H2O2 to 1 gallon water and soak.
        • Athlete's foot: Soak feet nightly until condition is improved.
      • For the Mouth
        • Mouthwash After brushing teeth and tongue, swish H2O2 in mouth for a couple of minutes and then gargle with it, then spit out and rinse. If pain occurs, spit out and try on the following days, etc. Do not attempt with sores in mouth. May also reverse tooth sensitivity. Convert  35% food grade H2O2 to get 3% hydrogen peroxide by  adding 1 tablespoon of 35% H2O2 to 11 tablespoons of distilled non-chlorinated water (1:11 ratio).
        • Toothpaste: Use baking soda and add enough 3% H202 to make a paste. Or just dip your brush in it and brush.
      • Shower: Keep a spray bottle of hydrogen peroxide in the shower. Spray your body after washing to replace the acid mantle of your skin that soap removes.

    Of course, "Snopes" has called all of this as 'dangerous' and 'bogus' (to paraphrase), so believe whatever you choose to believe. Personally, I've found a lot of so-called 'dangerous' or 'bogus' all-natural therapies to be completely real and safe, when sites like 'Snopes' only like to 'poo-poo' such 'weird' or 'different' therapies. Of course, the mention of someone dying once, whatever be the full cause, will make everyone point their fingers. Hey, not only 10 years ago, my Idaho Gynecologist refused to perform a water-birth for the delivery of my son, claiming "One dead baby is enough for me to say no!".
