Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy
Hydrogen peroxide therapy has been used to facilitate healing as early as 1902, although it has only recently garnered attention from more mainstream medical academics. Hydrogen Peroxide, chemically written as H202, consists of 2 molecules of Hydrogen and 2 molecules of Oxygen. The extra molecule of Oxygen acts as an antibiotic as many pathogens - including harmful bacteria and cancer cells - cannot live in an oxygenated environment.
This is why hydrogen peroxide helps to prevent infection, or remove infected tissue, from an open wound. The added oxygen kills harmful bacteria and allows the body to heal itself. Just as hydrogen peroxide on a wound can help prevent or inhibit further infection, food-grade hydrogen peroxide can work on the intercellular level to eradicate stubborn pathogens inside the body, and allow a suppressed immune system to function properly again.
Premise Behind Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy
It is important to understand that in modern times, the body is more prone to oxygen deprivation. Respiration is not the only way the body absorbs oxygen. For example, pure drinking water contains oxygen as well. By ingesting oxygen rich water and food products, the body receives internal doses of oxygen which helps to balance healthy and unhealthy bacteria found on the body. Unfortunately, water pollutants/treatments as well as environmental pesticides/chemicals, have all contributed to the deterioration of naturally occurring oxygen.
Also, a healthy body produces hydrogen peroxide as a natural anti-pathogen when systems are working properly. One example of this is a pro-bacteria in the body, called lactobacillus. Lactobacillus forms hydrogen peroxide in order to kill harmful bacteria and to keep yeast levels in check. When lactobacillus is depleted, via antibiotics or an unhealthy immune system, the body can become overrun with infections.
Hydrogen peroxide therapy can be used to introduce oxygen internally to fight these latent infections. After an adequate number of treatments, whether orally or intravenously, patients will find that they are freed from the chronic condition(s) caused or exacerbated by these asymptomatic pathogens.
What Conditions Can Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy Treat?
Chronic pain and high-levels of common bacteria called L-forms, or mycoplasms, are a common link in many conditions treated with hydrogen peroxide therapy. Just as H. pylori are now known to cause ulcers when they become over-populous, these L forms can run rampant in a body with a repressed immune system. Common conditions for which hydrogen peroxide has been effective include:
- Migraine Headaches
- Unsuccessful surgeries, especially those involving back injuries
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Emphysema (while it can't restore damaged avioli, it can clear the lungs of harmful pathogens, allowing the lungs to purge toxins, and can significantly improve breathing)
- Cancer cells
Often, these L Forms form pockets of low-grade infection in multiple parts of the body, such as the sinuses, at the base of root canals, or in old scar tissue. They keep the immune system so active that it becomes fatigued and begins to give up. Chronic pain is a side effect of many of these conditions. It's important to note that pain medications can repress immune function which only compounds the problem.
How Is Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy Administered?
Once a doctor has determined a patient is a candidate for hydrogen peroxide therapy, s/he will create a protocol using hydrogen peroxide in a bath, oral, and/or IV form. The nature of the infection, combined with the levels of identified pathogens, will determine how much and how often the treatments will run.
It is imperative that hydrogen peroxide therapy is administered by a trained doctor using food and medical grade hydrogen peroxide. This therapy should never be attempted at home without medical supervision. Contact Patients Medical for more information on this revolutionary treatment.
