Understanding Hydrogen Peroxide – H2O2 – Its Medicinal Uses

Hydrogen Peroxide – H2O2

What is Hydrogen Peroxide – H2O2: A Peroxide is a compound with an oxygen-oxygen single bond, and Hydrogen Peroxide is ‘The Simplest Peroxide’. Medicinally, it may be used as an oxidiser and a disinfectant. It is transparent and slightly more viscous than water.

Overtime, it would decompose into hydrogen and water, unless we are using a stabiliser, which we should not, if we are using it for food or medicinal purposes. It is unstable thermodynamically (i.e. If Ha, and the reaction involved would be 2H2O2 => 2H2O + O2

The chemical bonding is like H-O-O-H. Depending on the pH value of a solution, Hydrogen Peroxide exhibits Oxidising & Reducing Properties. Though in acidic environment it is highly oxidising agent. Itself it has a pH value of on & around 5.

The falling rain, interacts with Ozone found in the upper atmospheric layers and forms H2O2.

The principle that Hydrogen Peroxide works on is that it oxidises the external pathogens that attack the body. Now, most (if not all) pathogens-microorganisms that attack the body survive in anaerobic atmosphere. Now, as intake/administration of Hydrogen Peroxide oxidises these microorganisms, the pathogens even though might not get killed, are drastically reduced in their potency. The reaction involved is that as Hydrogen Peroxide comes in contact with specific enzyme found in Blood & Other Tissues (Catalase), it rapidly decomposes into Oxygen and Water. Hydrogen Peroxide is Natural Anti-septic.

Our Body (WBC’s-Actually Neutrophils) actually produces H2O2 to enable our immune system to fight off invading bacteria-viruses etc. This actually is the body’s first line of defence against external harmful pathogens (which are anaerobic). It actually came as a surprising fact to me that H2O2 is found in Rain Water, Organic Fruits-Vegetables, and even Mother’s Milk.

This fact on H2O2 makes it useful in almost any ailment that one suffers or may suffer from…

Always use Pure Distilled Water to Dilute 35% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide

Any concentration of H2O2 when kept in dark coloured glass Bottles (Away from direct Sunlight) decomposes at around 10% per year. The increased oxygen in the body via H2O2 enables our body to even eliminate heavy metals, chemicals and toxins out of the body. Also the body’s ability to assimilate Vitamins-Minerals-Amino Acids from the Food we eat Increases. It also stimulates our Body Enzymes, Increases our Body Metabolic Rate-Dilates our Body Artilleries and thus increases Blood Flow through them.
