Eliminate infections with food-grade hydrogen peroxide

Hydrogen Peroxide Kills Infections(NaturalHealth365) You probably have used hydrogen peroxide many times to treat mild external infections or treat minor cuts. But, ‘food-grade’ hydrogen peroxide actually has a number of additional benefits beyond first aid – although not all uses are recognized by the medical community.

Technically speaking, food grade hydrogen peroxide range from 8 to 35 percent solutions – which shouldn’t be confused with your typical drugstore varieties that get diluted down to about 3.5 percent.

Can food grade hydrogen peroxide help cancer patitents?

One of the most exciting potential uses for hydrogen peroxide, as well as one of the most controversial, involves its use as a cancer therapy. While hydrogen peroxide has not been recognized as a cancer treatment by the mainstream medical profession, there are alternative cancer treatment centers where it is being used.

The science behind its use stems from the fact that cancer cells behave in a similar fashion to (most) unwanted pathogens. They prefer consistently acidic environments of low oxygen and plenty of simple sugars. If the biological terrain is rich in oxygen and surrounded by plenty of antioxidants, cancer cells tend to have a poor survival rate.

How does hydrogen peroxide kill infections?

To understand why this occurs, it’s helpful to know that hydrogen peroxide is labeled as “singlet oxygen therapy,” meaning that when it comes into contact with other substances, it release a single atom of oxygen as a part of an oxidation reaction. Once this occurs, the remaining hydrogen peroxide breaks down into water or H2O – since it is now left with only a single oxygen atom for every two hydrogen atoms.

But that’s not all that is going on during the oxidative reaction. Once that singlet oxygen atom has been released and is roaming around the body, it remains extremely reactive, oxidizing or reducing the molecular structures of a range of contaminants, such as bacteria, viruses, and fungi, as well as attacking foreign proteins and parasites.

Best of all, hydrogen peroxide also has the ability to target diseased tissues.

What do cancer experts say about hydrogen peroxide?

It’s easy to understand why many believe food-grade hydrogen peroxide has a place in cancer treatment. In fact, some experts, like R. Webster Kehr, a researcher for the Independent Cancer Research Foundation goes so far as to say that food-grade hydrogen peroxide may kill cancer cells.

His conclusion is also based on the fact that cancer cells tend to multiply when little oxygen is available, but when exposed to oxygen repeatedly, the expansion of new cells is greatly hindered and the cells may even die, since it appears that cancer cells do not have the ability to break down the oxygen atoms in hydrogen peroxide.

One word of caution: do not try to self-medicate with hydrogen peroxide if you are a cancer patient. Doing so can lead to great harm or even death. Discuss the potential of incorporating hydrogen peroxide therapy into your cancer treatment with your primary doctor or cancer care specialist.

Hydrogen peroxide improves lung function

Just as it has been used to treat mild infections in the body, there is some evidence that highly diluted, food-grade hydrogen peroxide can also be used to break up mucous in the lungs and reduce some of the symptoms of emphysema.

Just an ounce of 35 percent concentrated hydrogen peroxide in a gallon of unchlorinated water can be used in a vaporizer every night. Hydrogen peroxide may also be administered intravenously. Before using hydrogen peroxide, discuss its use and your emphysema symptoms with your physician.

Is hydrogen peroxide useful in any other conditions?

Food-grade hydrogen peroxide therapy has also been used to treat other conditions, particularly those related to a lack of adequate oxygen reaching cells, such as asthma and allergies, as well as a laundry list of other ailments including diabetes, Alzheimer’s and cardiovascular disease.

While most scientific research is lacking in the treatment of these ailments with hydrogen peroxide therapy, the ability of food-grade hydrogen peroxide to improve oxygen levels – at the cellular level – provide some basis for proving that such treatment may indeed work.

    God bless you brother. You know the heavily-subsidized mainstream medical industry will never acknowledge any treatments that the big pharma companies can’t corner and thereby financially-bleed their customers to death, or render their users of their products to become completely enslaved by their tactics of suppressing affordable life-saving alternative treatments for the sake of incredible company profits and placing their customers under complete subjection.

    Lori, one of the best articles on food grade hydrogen peroxide. Until now I couldn’t find enough information for me to feel safe using it. While I know t the drug store phamaceutical variety has its purpose, it can be full of impurities making it’s less safe for the uses mention in this article.

    I bought some 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide at the natural health store about 2 years ago and since I didn’t know how to use it, I kept it in the refrigerator where it sits to this day.
    I’m wondering if it has already expired, or if I can still use it? I don’t really have a specific reason to use it now but wanted to keep it on hand, just in case. I’m also wondering if I can drink a mixture of it with water, but don’t know the ratios to use? Can anyone tell me if the above ratios for using it in the vaporizer are the same as for drinking it?

    As long as you use chlorinated city water, you are killing all vitamins in food. You must change water. Forget about Hydrogen Peroxide, use Hexagon water to clean your vegetable and fruit. You can also drink it for your health.

    From what I read you should keep it in the refrigerator. Outside the refrigerator it will loss its potency at the rate of one percent per month. There are some people that freeze it as light and heat will change hydrogen peroxide.

    I couldn’t find how long it’s good for. The best thing is to call a company that sells this product and ask.

    Hydrogen peroxide is in rainwater, which is why plants that are rained on have better health than those that get tap water. The increasing levels of pollution in the air means that most of the hydrogen peroxide will react with these air borne toxins and never reach the plants.

    Farmers are compensating for this and increasing crop yields by spraying plants with food grade hydrogen peroxide diluted with water. The ratio is 16 ounces of 35% peroxide with 20 gallons of water.

    You can also make a spray for your plants by adding a few drops to a quart of water. This will keep the plant healthy.

    House water many times is treated with chlorine and other chemicals. This water is like spraying your plants with a weak bleach, which no one would think of doing. When watering plants it’s best to remember all watering is not equal.

    Filtered water is better for plants as it removes the chlorine, which are harmfull to the living cells of the plant. If you can put the plants outside to catch some rainwater it would help keep the plants healthy.
