Supplement H2O2 therapy with Antioxidants

You are strongly advised to take antioxidants when applying anyH2O2therapy - to protect your healthy cells. These include Vitamins A, C, D and E, Co-enzyme Q10, and antioxidant minerals: selenium, zinc, copper, manganese and sulfur. (most contained in a whole food, dietary supplement, such as “Greena Colada”). However, to prevent interference with the oxidative nature of H2O2 therapy you should not take antioxidants within 2 hours of treatment.

Which kind of H2O2 should I use?

Most store-bought H2O2 is 3% pharmaceutical grade suitable for use in external therapies, and household and horticultural applications - It is, however, NOT suitable for internal use, since it contains chemical stabilizers, which you do not want in your body. For any application putting H2O2 inside the body (E.g. Nebulizing, oral consumption and using DMSO as a penetrant to carry H2O2 through the skin and into the blood stream), you should use FOOD GRADE H2O2:

How to obtain a 3% FOOD GRADE Hydrogen Peroxide solutionfor internal use

If an application requires any other strength than 3% H2O2:

✔ For a concentration < 3% add appropriate amount of distilled water

✔ For a concentration > 3% DILUTE a 35% FOOD GRADE hydrogen peroxide –be aware that this strength solution can be dangerous and should be handled as if you are in a professional laboratory

Methods of Application of H2O2


(The absorption rate of skin is around 60% )

Detoxification Foot Bath: Soak feet in 3% H2O2 in a footbath for 30 minutes daily. A vibrating footbath adds some reflexology benefit. Prolong the life of the H2O2solution for reuse, by keeping it cool and in the dark between uses.You can also add 1 tsp. of Epsom salts or sea salt.

Detoxification Bath: a very effective, inexpensive way to get H2O2 into the body for detoxification. The recommended rate is 8 oz. (1 Cup) of 35% food grade H2O2(put in at "half-full" to ensure safe dilution) in a tub of un-chlorinated water. Soak 30 minutes. Can use up to 16oz. (2 Cups) 35% H2O2.

Gel: Use almost a tablespoon full of 35% food gradeH2O2 mix thoroughly with about 7 ounces (or more) of Aloe Vera Gel and apply it to the skin.The gel helps it stick to the skin. Rinse the hands after applying.

Mineral Bath: Add ½ cup 35% H2O2, ½cup sea salt, and ½cup baking soda or Epsom salts to bath water and soak.

Facial: Use 3% H2O2 on a cotton ball after washing.Avoid eyebrows and eyes. DO NOT use 35% H2O2.

Topical: Topically apply undiluted 3% H2O2

–    With DMSO - A highly effective treatment for oral and genital herpes is obtained by mixing 9% H2O2 with DMSO and applying topically to the affected areas.The use of DMSO provides superior absorption and penetration across cell membranes, and regular application has prevented further periodic outbreaks.

(Tip: Use DMSO with a little raw honey to reduce bad breath and body odor typical with DMSO use);


Chest Poultice: Heat ¼cup of 3% H2O2, pour over a white wool or cotton cloth and place it on your chest area for 20 minutes.Repeat the treatment every 8-12 hours, the H2O2 will be absorbed into your blood stream and lungs directly, where it will destroy the viruses or bacteria responsible for bronchitis.


Nasal Mist: H2O2 nasal mist cleans pockets of infection from the sinuses. Use the 3% H2O2, dilute it at least 50% with water and put 5-10 drops in each nostril - sniff it up vigorously (it will burn a little). Do this twice daily and see if it helps. If it doesn't, then your problem is not your sinuses.

Nebulizer – this powerful delivery method provides an effect close to that of IV application, getting therapeuticH2O2 into the bloodstream, in addition to direct delivery into the sinuses, lungs and bronchi

For details:

Nebulizing Hydrogen Peroxide

Vaporizer:Breathe free with 1 ounce of 35% H2O2 per gallon of water in a vaporizer every night in an emphysemic's bedroom.

Cold Humidifier: 3% H2O2 in a cold humidifier.

Intravenous Infusion

Especially effective with emphysema - if you can find a doctor in your area to provide this procedure.


Gargle:Gargle with 3% H2O2 for a sore throat. Do not swallow.

Oral Rinse: Rinse mouth with a swig of 3% H2O2.

Ingestion:Some people ingest controlled amounts of H2O2 and attain successful results. However, the problem with any medicinal consumption is that a sufficient amount of the medicine must get through the stomach, and unfortunately, much of the oxidative H2O2 is likely to react with the stomach contents. Also, the taste is an off-putting factor when consistent use is required, especially if you're already not feeling well.

Aural Drops

This application method has proven good results for resolving a cold or flu in 12-14 hours.

Administer a few drops of 3% H2O2 into each ear- You will hear some bubbling, and possibly feel a slight stinging or warm sensation.

Wait 5-10 minutes for the bubbling and stinging to subside - then drain onto a tissue and repeat with the other ear.

Vaginal Douche / Colonic Enema

When lactobacillus in the colon or vaginal tract have been overrun with harmful viruses, yeast, or bacteria - an effective douche or enema solution can be made using 3 tablespoons of 3% H2O2 in 1 quart of distilled water. Keep in mind, however, that a good bacterial flora must always be re-established in these areas to achieve lasting results.

Side Effects of H2O2 Therapy

Herxheimer Effect - when detoxifying the body with H2O2, a "die-off" effect is observed, called the Herxheimer Effect. This can be mediated by drinking lots of water;

Herxheimer Effect

H2O2 will destroy the body's flora (good bacteria) if used in the vagina or intestines - You will therefore need to re-establish your flora with a high quality probiotic supplement.
