When it comes to hydrogen peroxide therapy there seems to be only two points of view. Supporters consider it one of the greatest healing miracles of all time. Those opposed feel its ingestion is exceptionally dangerous, and only the foolhardy could think of engaging in such behavior. Before either condemning or endorsing hydrogen peroxide, let’s take a real close look at what we’re dealing with. 

“I do not claim to cure any cause, condition or disease. I do not provide medical aid or nutrition for the purpose of health or disease xo~ 7LoveJohnson.com” 

If any substance is interesting, it’s hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide should really be called hydrogen dioxide. Its chemical formula is H2O2. It contains one more atom of oxygen that does water (H20). By now everyone’s aware of the ozone layer that surrounds the earth. Ozone consists of three atoms of oxygen (03). This protective layer of ozone is created when ultraviolet light from the sun splits an atmospheric oxygen molecule (02) into two single, unstable oxygen atoms. These single molecules combine with others to form ozone (03). Ozone isn’t very stable. In fact, it will quickly give up that extra atom of oxygen to falling rainwater to form hydrogen peroxide (H202). (Bear with me: all this chemistry mumbo jumbo I’m going through actually will help you understand the importance of hydrogen peroxide.)

Helps Plants
It is this hydrogen peroxide in rainwater that makes it so much more effective than tap water when given to plants. With the increased levels of atmospheric pollution, however, greater amounts of H202 react with air-borne toxins and never reach the ground. To compensate for this, many farmers have been increasing crop yields by spraying them with diluted hydrogen peroxide (5 to 16 ounces of 35% mixed with 20 gallons of water per acre). You can achieve the same beneficial effect with your house plants by adding 1 ounce of 3% hydrogen peroxide (or 16 drops of 35% solution) to every quart of water you give your plants. (It can also be made into an excellent safe insecticide. Simply spray your plants with 8 ounces of 3% peroxide mixed with 8 ounces of white sugar and one gallon of water.)

Hydrogen peroxide is odorless and colorless, but not tasteless. When stored under the proper conditions, it is a very stable compound. When kept in the absence of light and contaminants, it dismutates (breaks down) very slowly at the rate of about 10% a year. (This can be slowed even further by storing the liquid in the freezer.) It boils at 152 degrees C and freezes at minus 2 degrees C.

When exposed to other compounds hydrogen peroxide dismutates readily. The extra oxygen atom is released leaving H20 (water). In nature oxygen (02) consists of two atoms–a very stable combination. A single atom of oxygen, however, is very reactive and is referred to as a free radical. Over the past several years, we’ve continually read that these free radicals are responsible for all types of ailments and even premature aging. What many writers seem to forget, however, is that our bodies create and use free radicals to destroy harmful bacteria, viruses, and fungi. In fact, the cells responsible for fighting infection and foreign invaders in the body (your white blood cells) make hydrogen peroxide and use it to oxidize any offending culprits. The intense bubbling you see when hydrogen peroxide comes in contact with a bacteria-laden cut or wound is the oxygen being released and bacteria being destroyed. The ability of our cells to produce hydrogen peroxide is essential for life. H202 is not some undesirable by-product or toxin, but instead a basic requirement for good health.

Newer research indicates we need hydrogen peroxide for a multitude of other chemical reactions that take place throughout the body. For example, we now know that vitamin C helps fight infections by producing hydrogen peroxide, which in turn stimulates the production of prostaglandins. Also lactobacillus found in the colon and vagina produce hydrogen peroxide. This destroys harmful bacteria and viruses, preventing colon disease, vaginitis, bladder infections and a host of other common ailments. (Infect Dis News Aug.8, 91:5). 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% H202 in 1 quart of distilled water. Keep in mind, however, that a good bacterial flora must always be re-established in theses areas to achieve lasting results- (Original title: Hydrogen Peroxide – Curse or Cure? first published in Dr Willaims’ ALTERNATIVES Newsletter probably in the 1990s)

“Drink hydrogen peroxide solution one hour before or three hours after a meal (empty stomach and don’t eat anything for that hour after taking it). Add food grade hydrogen peroxide to 8 oz. distilled water, spring water, milk, vegetable juice, or fruit juice (I use only distilled water). Do Not use chlorinated tap water. Hydrogen peroxide is used to pasteurize milk in most countries around the world. 12 drops of 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide in a quart of milk is an alternative to pasteurization. There is an enzyme in fresh pressed carrot juice and bananas that breaks down H202 into water and oxygen on contact. No sugary, alcoholic or carbonated beverages. Drink the hydrogen peroxide mixture on an empty stomach. If your stomach gets upset at any level, stay at that level, or go back one level. Candida victims may need to stay at the Day 1 dosage level for up to 1 week before beginning the hydrogen peroxide regimen. When reaching higher dosages, more water may be used. Deep breathing, fresh air, and exercise are also very important. (Most times for the first 15 minutes after taking it I would lay on my right side to get the peroxide to a place it would be absorbed quicker, the small intestines. Other times I would get on the treadmill thinking if my blood was flowing quicker it had a better chance to get to its destination. I’m thinking exercise may be best if the destination is beyond the liver.) If you are on a medication, consult your doctor. CAUTION: If any strong solution of hydrogen peroxide concentrate is spilled on the skin, flush the skin immediately with water. Skin may whiten temporarily. Try not to burp after drinking the hydrogen peroxide solution, it is probably singlet oxygen (O1).

Dosage Schedule Using 35% Food Grade H202 
  • Day 1………..3 drops, 3 times daily
  • Day 2………..4 drops, 3 times daily
  • Day 3………..5 drops, 3 times daily
  • Day 4………..6 drops, 3 times daily
  • Day 5………..7 drops, 3 times daily
  • Day 6………..8 drops, 3 times daily
  • Day 7………..9 drops, 3 times daily
  • Day 8……….10 drops, 3 times daily
  • Day 9……….12 drops, 3 times daily
  • Day 10………14 drops, 3 times daily
  • Day 11………16 drops, 3 times daily
  • Day 12………18 drops, 3 times daily
  • Day 13………20 drops, 3 times daily
  • Day 14………22 drops, 3 times daily
  • Day 15………24 drops, 3 times daily
  • Day 16………25 drops, 3 times daily

For serious problems stay at 25 drops, 3 times daily for 1 to 3 weeks (I actually stayed at this dose 5 weeks before I realized I was supposed to back off at 1-3 weeks). Reduce dosage to 25 drops, 2 times daily until the problems go away. This may take 1 to 6 months. (I stayed at twice a day for 6 months.) When problems go away, reduce dosage to 25 drops 1 time daily for a week, then 25 drops every other day for a week, then 25 drops every third day for a week and then 25 drops every fourth day for a week. (I did this more gradually maybe down a step once per month). A good maintenance routine would be 5 to 20 drops a week. (I’ve been afraid to drop below 17 drops twice per week which I’ve been on for a couple years now.) The addition of copper to hydrogen peroxide increases the effectiveness of hydrogen peroxide on bacteria up to 3,000 times. Coenzyme Q10, organic germanium, niacin, vitamin E, flax oil, lecithin and acidophilus help increase oxygenation.”

And don’t forget to take the flax seed oil. I took and still take organic flax seed oil capsules. It supposedly helps to make the cancer cells more susceptible to the h2o2. Right now I only take one 1300mg capsule a day. But when the capsules were a slightly smaller dose I took one twice per day. I also take Niacin regularly and it seems that may have been helpful too according to this article.

Other things that may help could be a diet a little light on protein and while I still take an antioxidant, I don’t overdo. I take Selenium once per day.

And also I can’t emphasize enough the power of prayer. There was certainly a lot of that going on in my family and by me. My prayers were answered in the form of my Dad learning of this awesome treatment- Rossa xo~ seven

Disease Starts In The Colon

Enemas cleanse the colon walls. Due to the standard American diet consisting of so much processed food, the intestine walls get clogged up. The body dumps toxins from the liver into the colon to be excreted. The more the colon is backed up, the less your body can rid itself of toxins. The accumulation of toxins is one of the leading causes of disease so keeping your colon clean is one of the best things you can do for your health.

A clogged colon can lead to a myriad of health problem so cleaning the colon can fix many health problems, including some that are deemed incurable. It’s hard to overemphasize the importance of colon health and enemas, but suffice it to say you can’t be healthy and living at optimum levels without having a clean colon. If you’re unfamiliar with colonics and enemas, look them up online and read more about them. Of course, you’ll need to know how to do an enema before doing one yourself.

Why Hydrogen Peroxide Enemas Are So Powerful

Enemas are so beneficial they’re worthwhile doing them with just water alone. But if you’d like to get the most benefit from each enema you do, hydrogen peroxide enemas are the way to go! Hydrogen peroxide is a form of oxygen therapy, which is one of the most powerful strategies in alternative medicine.

Hydrogen peroxide is water with an active singlet oxygen attached to it. Water is H20 and hydrogen peroxide is H202. The extra active singlet oxygen makes hydrogen peroxide an oxidizer that releases the extra singlet oxygen to burn pathogens like bad bacteria, viruses, and fungi, making water with what’s left (H2O). Every cell in your body is trying to make hydrogen peroxide, so it’s natural and your body is made to handle it.

Hydrogen peroxide enemas are very effective at removing toxins and waste.  Waste and toxins must be bound with oxygen to leave the body. Oxygen levels are low in the colon. Hydrogen peroxide enemas add oxygen to the enema so the body can get rid of waste that has been accumulating. Besides waste and toxins, you might be surprised to see parasites come out when you add hydrogen peroxide to your enema!

Aerobic vs Anaerobic Organisms

It’s important to distinguish the difference between aerobic and anaerobic bacteria. Aerobic bacteria burn oxygen as fuel and leave carbon dioxide as a by-product, just like humans do. Anaerobic bacteria burn carbon dioxide as a fuel and leave oxygen as a by-product. Anaerobic organisms are pathogens, which cause disease.

Hydrogen peroxide in the human body has 2 major effects:

  1. Kills, or significantly inhibits the growth of, anaerobic organisms, bacteria, and viruses.
  2. Aerobic bacteria thrive in the presence of hydrogen peroxide.

How To Do Hydrogen Peroxide Enemas

It’s very important to follow these directions closely. Misappropriate dosage could cause great harm!

You don’t want to do enemas with the hydrogen peroxide sold in general stores. That stuff has unwanted contaminants added to it for adding shelf life. You want to buy 35% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide. Be careful, 35% hydrogen peroxide can burn you if it touches your skin undiluted. You have to dilute it down to 3% by mixing 1 part of 35% with 11 parts distilled water, or at least reverse osmosis filtered water with a low total dissolved water (TDS) content. Hydrogen peroxide forms hydroxyl radicals with transitional medals that may be present in tap water.

Add 2 quarts of distilled water to enema bag, then mix 3% H2O2.

Gradually Increasing Dosage Schedule

1 teaspoon of 3% in 2 quarts of water

1 1/2 teaspoons

2 teaspoons

2 1/2 teaspoons

3 teaspoons (1 tablespoon)

1 tablespoon & 1/2 teaspoon

1 tablespoon & 1 teaspoon

1 tablespoon & 1 1/2 teaspoon

*Start with just plain water for a few days. Then begin adding 1 1/2 teaspoons and gradually increasing dosage, as listed above, every few days. Don’t exceed the amounts listed. In fact, you don’t even have to go that high. If you experience discomfort, take a few days off start at the beginning. Let your body guide you.

Unfortunately, mainstream medicine is controlled by big pharma and the government prevents alternative medicine from being used to treat disease. The amount of hydrogen peroxide you’ll need to add to an enema is minimal, making the cost negligible. And there’s no profit in that!
