Quick Summary

Hydrogen peroxide is an oxidant therapy that should only be used as a helper-treatment and not as a stand-alone cure for cancer. It must be used in tandem with other oxidant therapies. Anti-oxidant cancer therapies cancel out the positive effects of hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide works by increasing the availability of oxygen and increasing the energy of cancer cells which causes them revert back into healthy cells.

Detailed Information


One of the reasons why cells change from healthy cells into cancer cells is because they’re low on energy. Hydrogen peroxide increases the availability of oxygen in the body and some scientists believe that by increasing the availability of oxygen, cancer cells can manufacture more energy and become healthy again. Hydrogen peroxide is a helper treatment for cancer. It is not to be used as a stand-alone cancer treatment, but only in tandem with other cancer treatments [2][3].


Hydrogen peroxide treatments can be administered orally or intravenously. Cancer cells can’t survive in a highly-oxygenated environment, so the use of hydrogen peroxide to infuse the body with oxygen can help shrink tumors. Additionally, hydrogen peroxide seems to play an important role as a signaling molecule that can activate the immune system. Hydrogen peroxide is an affordable treatment that’s easy to obtain, but be aware that the hydrogen peroxide used orally or intravenously is different from the hydrogen peroxide you buy over-the-counter. Over-the-counter hydrogen peroxide contains stabilizers that should not be ingested or injected [1][4].


In the 1800’s and early 1900’s, hydrogen peroxide was used to treat a variety of diseases including:


  • Whooping Cough
  • Syphilis
  • Cholera
  • Typhoid fever
  • Ulcers
  • Tuberculosis
  • Asthma.
  • Today, research has shown that hydrogen peroxide can be an effective treatment against certain types of malaria [4].


Colostrum (the first batch of breast milk produced by new mothers) contains a high concentration of hydrogen peroxide (1000 times more than what’s found in human blood) which could explain why this first batch of milk is so powerful at activating a newborn infant’s immune system [1] Many plants, in particular Artemesia annua contain high quantities of hydrogen peroxide and when freshly prepared as tea, can infuse the body with extra oxygen [4].


After pharmaceutical industries began developing profitable new drugs, the use of hydrogen peroxide became less popular as a modality of treatment because it is a naturally occurring substance that is not profitable to pharmaceutical companies[1].

Safety and Effectiveness

Don’t combine hydrogen peroxide treatment with anti-oxidants because these two treatments will cancel each other out. Hydrogen peroxide should be used only when patients are not being given anti-oxidants for cancer treatment. Newly diagnosed patients with slow-growing cancers may opt to use hydrogen peroxide therapy, but it is difficult to make use of hydrogen peroxide in high enough doses to make it a viable cancer treatment up against other, natural cancer treatments that offer excellent results [3].


How Hydrogen Peroxide Is Administered
Oral Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy


Do not ingest the hydrogen peroxide you buy at the grocery store. Find 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide. This will need to be diluted or it will burn your throat [3].


Dilute the peroxide down to about 3% for use by adding 1-part hydrogen peroxide to 10-parts water. Start by taking a few drops of hydrogen peroxide in water and increase the dose to one teaspoon up to four times a day before meals and at bedtime. Follow this protocol until the cancer is under control and then reduce daily intake to one dose before breakfast [5].


Intravenous Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy


Used in combination with hyperbaric oxygen and other oxygen therapies like ozone, ultraviolent light, and blood irradiation, intravenous hydrogen peroxide can be a powerful helper treatment against cancer. Oxidation kills cancer, stimulates white blood cell production, and increases delivery of oxygen to the blood and body tissues [2].

Possible Negative Effects

Hydrogen peroxide at 35% concentration can burn the skin. Flush with water if it gets on the skin [5].


Food grade hydrogen peroxide taken orally can cause nausea.
