I’m drinking hydrogen peroxide

hydrogen-peroxide-modelI‘m on day ten – drinking five drops of 35% hydrogen peroxide three times a day. It’s exciting and I want to jump up to six or seven drops but I’m restraining myself and going slowly. The protocol is a fast-moving one, starting with one drop and increasing one drop each day to 25 drops (three times a day). Instead, I’m staying at each dose for two days.

Why would I do this? It’s another oxidative therapy, related to drinking ozone water which I did for about a week prior to this. I got really interested in ozone and wanted to do insufflation but the machine required to do medical grade ozone is more than $1000. During the research I came across this from curezone.com:

i no longer drink ozonated water becaue i’ve found oral H2O2 to be much more effective and longer lasting.

Around the same time, one of my blog readers mentioned that he recently resolved a number of mycotoxin symptoms using H2O2 and is currently taking 25 x 3 drops. I started getting really interested. Hydrogen peroxide seems very similar to chlorine dioxide therapy which I had researched earlier and actually purchased (though not used). The chlorine dioxide smells noxious and while they are both disinfectants, I’m more impressed with the chemistry behind H2O2. It seems that the hydrogen peroxide science is much more defined.

Next, In the Rope Worm group on Facebook, I read Prof. Alex Volinsky saying:

Any oxidation therapy is effective, including hydrogen peroxide, chlorine dioxide, ozone and hyperbaric chamber.

I’ve also heard  great things about the hyperbaric chamber and want to try it, but it’s expensive too. Since a bottle of 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide (FGHP) cost less than $10, I stopped researching medical grade ozone generators and went to buy my first bottle of FGHP on Amazon, where I came across this spectacular review:

FATIGUE: GONE!!!!!! Even the first day I started, it just felt as if it was one of the very good days! 4-5 days down the road….. never felt better since I was 20 years old and 50 kilos less….

The author of that review has a blog where I found a useful calculator for juggling 3% and 35% equivalencies and a link to this great e-book on FGHP by James Roguski. The chemistry section of his book was very convincing to me. I’d like to go into the chemistry deeply but am very pressed for time so I’m just going to highlight one single aspect out of a long list relating to the SOD2 genes.

I have some substantial genetic flaws in my SOD genes. See all the red and yellow? Those would be green and read -/- in a genetically flawless person.

SOD2 rs2758331 A AA +/+
SOD2 rs2855262 T CT +/-
SOD2 A16V rs4880 G GG +/+
SOD2 gene is a member of the iron/manganese superoxide dismutase family. This protein transforms toxic superoxide, a byproduct of the mitochondrial electron transport chain, into hydrogen peroxide and diatomic oxygen. In simpler terms, the more energy your mitochondria produce, the more byproducts (also called free radicals) get produced. These toxic byproducts tear up cell membranes and walls through a process called oxidative stress.  Mutations in the SOD2 gene diminish your ability to transform these toxic byproducts into harmless components. People with SOD2 polymorphisms may not tolerate nitrates or fish oil well. Mutations in this gene have been associated with idiopathic cardiomyopathy (IDC), sporadic motor neuron disease, and cancer.


Note the statement “Mutations in the SOD2 gene diminish your ability to transform these toxic byproducts into harmless components.” I think the word harmless is very misleading – it should say “valuable” components. why is that? Because hydrogen peroxide and oxygen kill viruses and bad bacteria! So if you’re deficient in hydrogen peroxide, the pathogens are taking over. Furthermore, the good bacteria, your flora, manufacture hydrogen peroxide. So we have a vicious circle where a lack of hydrogen peroxide allows pathogens to proliferate at the expense of good bacteria. Because you have less good bacteria you have even less hydrogen peroxide. See how circular it is?

Here’s how the ebook author James Roguski puts the SOD question:

Ask yourself a simple question.  Why would Mother Nature provide human cells with multiple versions of an enzyme that would enable us to manufacture hydrogen peroxide at a rate that is a billion times faster than one would observe if the enzyme did not exist?  Moreover, SOD has the fastest reaction rate of any known enzyme.  Doesn’t that point to the inherent importance of hydrogen peroxide?  To further drive home this point, please realize that, of the more than 100,000 types of protein in the human body,  only four are found in greater abundance than SOD!  The mere existence of SOD indicates that hydrogen peroxide is an extremely important nutrient!

A little more from my genetic profile:

FUT2 rs492602 G GG +/+
FUT2 rs601338 A AA +/+
FUT2 rs602662 A AA +/+
FUT2 gene encodes the fucosyltransferase 2 enzyme which determines “secretor status”. Non-functional enzyme resulting from a nonsense mutation in the FUT2 gene leads to the non-secretor phenotype. It has been shown that non-secretor individuals show significantly reduced bifidobacterial diversity, richness, and abundance. This is significant because intestinal microbiota plays an important role in human health.FUT2 has also been called a robust genetic predictor of vitamin B12 levels by Harvard researchers.

So in addition to having a genetic defect that results in low hydrogen peroxide production, I’ve also got genetic defects that result in reduced flora abundance and diversity.
This leaves me even more defenseless against intestinal pathogens and lower still in hydrogen peroxide levels.

Now, I have not  experienced a miracle cure yet but I have had some really promising results and remember my case is a pretty messy one.

First to summarize the side effects/detox reaction I’m experiencing, at times I’ve had:

  • mild dizziness
  • extra fatigue
  • headaches, frontal headaches and rear/upper ones that I’ve never felt before
  • abdominal bloating
  • abdominal pains (strangely not associated with gas)
  • soft stools
  • diarrhea
  • feeling cold especially hands
  • mild depression
  • difficulty sleeping right after taking h202 (I take my first dose around 5 AM)
  • dry lips
  • passing mucus in stools
  • strange feeling in sinuses

And the good stuff:

  • more energetic
  • less brain fog
  • more relaxed at times when ordinarily my body would be crashing

And here’s the blow-by-blow:

Day 1: one drop x 2 – mild headache after taking peroxide, unable to nap, some intestinal gurgling (not stomach)
Day 2: one drop x 3 – deep nap after lunch, feeling better than expected considering sleep loss previous night, no headaches, less than normal bloating until evening
Day 3: two drops x 3 – good nap, good energy until after dinner, headache in evening and exhausted
Day 4: two drops x 3 – somewhat better than expected energy at horseback riding, inhaled way too much dust, wiped out the rest of the day as usual.
Day 5: three drops x 3 – less fatigued than expected in the morning considering previous days exercise, light nap, feeling exhausted at 3:30 PM (I am usually crashing at this time of day ) when I took my last peroxide dose and 20 minutes later I felt miraculously better with partial listing of brain fog and relaxation without eating food (this has NEVER happened before). Abdomen somewhat bloated. Woke from abdominal pain (not stomach) in the middle of the night and had trouble going back to sleep.
Day 6: three drops x 3 – sleep deprived, deep nap, feeling energy surges from peroxide but muted due to sleep loss, frontal headache in evening.
Day 7: four drops x 3 – difficulty falling back asleep after first early morning dose of peroxide, stools getting softer, extra fatigue today, feeling lactic acid and muscles just walking up stairs, feeling a little cold today, mildly depressed in evening after taking my usual dose of Mag 07.
Day 8: four drops x 2 – softer stools again, long lunch meeting means no nap, destroyed for rest of day.
Day 9: five drops x 3 – very bloated all day, probably detox! nap, lots of burping.
Day 10: five drops x 3 – loose stool with lots of yellow mucus (small thin sheets) followed by diarrhea. Still very bloated.

to be continued…

If you’re interested in learning more or trying out hydrogen peroxide therapy, I highly recommend reading  James Roguski’s e-book titled “The Truth About Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide” and the hydrogen peroxide info on CancerTutor.com.

Speaking of cancer, I found this YouTube testimonial fairly credible and very interesting.

    I just ordered the 6% h2o2 off eBay .. is food grade, I’d like to do a cleanse not sure how much to use! Getting confused more with goggling it !! I have ME possible fungi mould as previous house had mould I became very ill all the time diagnosed with cfs/me

      you will need to dilute your 6% twice as much as you would a 3% solution…

        Hi what are the chances the peroxide will rupture your internal organs i did this for about a year and then stopped and still having trapped air coming out of my system Scared… 🙁

    I once read that there is a ratio of years one has had Candida to the months it would then take to recover
    It seems that I figured I have had Candida for 12 years, starting after a dentist had me take antibiotics off and on for 3 years, if my guestiment is accurate,it seems i figured it could take me three years to beat it.
    But then a medical doctor put me on back to back round of antibiotic against my better judgement ending in candidemia, (in the blood stream) . so I have only been a little over a year on my healing journe
    y, so I think this is why my body is thriving on the high dose of food grade hydrogen peroxide, and I also think each time I try to decrease my dosage level candidemia rears its ugly head again and symptoms all start coming back. Eric. Knowing this, do you think I should or should not stay on the high dosage, and do you think each time I have tried to cut the dose back I have lost ground to candida.

    Hi Eric,
    This is so inspiring. I have a couple of questions. In April I discovered that I had H Pylory in my gut. Since than I have changed completely my life style and I am educating my self on how to keep my gut healthy. I took initially a cicle of antibiotics prescribed by my doctor as I was very ignorant in the matter. Today I am looking at alternatives solutions. Now, I am taking all sort of multivitamins, pure vitamin C, Omega 3-6-9 etc etc etc. I am also taking probiotics every morning and magnesium. I am about to start the peroxide drops cicle and I was wondering if I should stop first of all the probiotics (As the peroxide would probably kill everything) And I was wondering if I should stop multivitamin and mineral intake while I am on the hydrogen peroxide drops? Please someone let me know. Regards

      yes I think it makes sense to stop probiotics for a while. Please note that ascorbic acid is being shown to kill healthy good bacteria… If you can afford natural raw vitamin C, it may be much better.

My name is Eric - I‘m 46 and saw a doctor for fatigue at 17. I lived fairly normally if a little subdued by lack of endurance at times. But then, 12 years ago I fell into a nosedive after moving to South Florida. Now, I know heavy metal toxicity is a significant source of my troubles along with genetic methylation cycle dysfunction. I spent 18 months chelating the metals out and starting up methylation but stopped when I felt myself circling the drain. Currently doing liver, colon, kidney and parasite cleanses. More about me here.

Timeline and current dosing:

Rounds completed: 29
Total chelation days: 125
Dose: 25 mg DMSA and 25 mg ALA every 3 hrs
