Hydrogen peroxide therapy – also known as H2O2 treatment – is an alternative medicine that treats various chronic diseases including AIDS and cancer. This alternative healing method uses food grade hydrogen peroxide to oxygenate the body.
According to those who practice H2O2 therapy, chronic diseases are all caused by one thing: the lack of oxygen. The fundamental principle of H2O2 therapy is to boost the body’s oxygen level to eliminate sickness.
Different Types of Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy
H2O2 therapy requires varying doses of food grade hydrogen peroxide. This product is different from the solution used to disinfect wounds or sterilize surgical tools.
H2O2 therapy is applied in various ways: soaking, inhalation and taken orally. Some patients add 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide to their bath water to soak for 20 minutes. This treatment is often used for AIDS patients. For others, 3% hydrogen peroxide is sprayed for vegetables to soak.
Another form of H2O2 application is inhalation. A certain dose of food grade hydrogen peroxide is diffused into the air for patients to inhale.
Although H2O2 therapy has been practiced since the 1950s, it remains a sketchy topic in the science community. There were claims that this therapy can treat incurable diseases, but there is very little evidence to back them up.
Below are the supposed health benefits of H2O2 Therapy
Treats Sinus Infection
When inhaled, hydrogen peroxide decongests the nasal passageways. It also calms inflammation and swelling. Hydrogen peroxide’s antiseptic properties kill microbes right on their tracks. Continuous treatment helps heal infections completely.
Hydrogen peroxide is traditionally used to disinfect wounds and surgical tools. When applied topically, hydrogen peroxide will react with organic matter in the wounds. Then, it oxidizes to kill microbes. This prevents inflammation and infection.
When taken orally, hydrogen peroxide can kill parasitic microbes in the body. The solution oxidizes so bacteria cannot exist. The body eliminates the dead parasites safely as waste.
When taken internally, hydrogen peroxide cleanses the stomach and colon. Its antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties purify the system and eliminate various forms of toxins.
Research show that malignant cells form from oxidative stress. Because hydrogen peroxide oxidizes cancer cells, the solution cuts the risk of cancer without killing off healthy cells.
According to Nobel Prize winner Otto Warburg, cancer cells have different metabolic properties than normal cells. Healthy cells utilize oxygen in chemical reactions while malignant cells use fermentation.
Fermentation is a primitive metabolic process that does not require oxygen. This is the reason cancer cells can thrive even in low-oxygen environments. By raising the oxygen level in the body, cancer cells die. Hydrogen peroxide creates an oxygenated environment where anomalous cells cannot live.
Prevents Free Radical Damage
H2O2 therapy also helps prevent oxidative stress. This occurs when reactive molecules called free radicals attack healthy cells. Oxidative stress is linked to aging and chronic diseases. Some health experts believe free radical damage also triggers cell mutation. Cell mutation is the precursor to cancer. By raising the oxygen level in the body, the immune system is able to fight free radicals and invading bacteria. Hydrogen peroxide also stimulates the body’s killer cells to hunt down and attack cancer cells.
