Intravenous Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy is an alternative health therapy with a large number of devoted followers. When hydrogen peroxide comes into contact with blood it reacts with the enzyme catalase, causing it to break down into water as well as into copious amounts of oxygen. Any part of the body that might for any reason have been oxygen deprived (due to circulatory problems, for example) will benefit from this increased oxygen. The released oxygen performs a host of helpful actions within the body including the inhibition and/or destruction of a number of organisms such as viruses, yeast, parasites and bacteria. Hydrogen peroxide is widely considered to be one of the most impressive of all the natural therapies that are available because of how many useful benefits it offers.
Just a few of the many conditions treated with Hydrogen Peroxide may include:
- Bacterial infections (including Lyme disease)
- Viral infection
- Epstein-Barr Virus
- Sinus infections
- Various fungal infections
- Poor circulation
- Chronic Bronchitis
Hydrogen peroxide is administered as a very weak concentration of a pure, medical grade, peroxide diluted in an intravenous solution of normal saline. This is then slowly infused into an arm vein over one to two hours. Treatments can be given as frequently as daily for acute illnesses or weekly for all other chronic medical conditions. From one to 20 treatments may be recommended, depending on the condition of the patient and the problem being treated.
The use of intravenous hydrogen peroxide (first reported in scientific literature in 1920) to generate oxygen in the body has been studied at many major medical research centers throughout the world, including the USA, Germany, England, Japan, Canada, Sweden, to name a few.
Over the past 50 years, hundreds of patients have received intravenous hydrogen peroxide therapy without serious side effects being reported. The International Bio-Oxidative Medicine Foundation currently publishes a protocol for the safe and proper administration of intravenous hydrogen peroxide.
