For not much more than a dollar a bottle, the 3% hydrogen peroxide you keep around (or will after reading this article) is a true medical home remedy, natural cure, and immunity boosting alternative to seasonal flu vaccination, flu treatment, and prevention. Did you know that throughout the world hydrogen peroxide is used instead of chlorine as a safer and eco-friendly municipal water purifier? Some use H2O2 in pools and spas. The science behind using peroxide is actually pretty cool and experimentally verifiable.
Your body makes hydrogen peroxide to fight infection which must be present for our immune system to function correctly. White blood cells are known as Leukocytes.
A sub-class of Leukocytes called Neutrophils produce hydrogen peroxide as the first line of defense against toxins, parasites, bacteria, viruses and yeast.
Hydrogen Peroxide is described as an effective anti-viral, antibacterial and anti-fungal, and can be used for anthrax decontamination…which sort of shows how it could probably do some sort of good against a cold and flu virus, don’t you think?
Bacteria, viruses, and fungus (even those linked to tumors and arthritis) have been known to be effectively dealt with by peroxide since the early 1900′s. Europeans still use peroxide in many treatments.
North America, however, seems to be a bit more controlled by pharmaceutical interests and tend to have more faith in antibiotics than simple cures. Peroxide works because it helps oxygenate the blood and tissues. Here are a few ideas for you to use your own bottle of peroxide around the house to boost your immunity and that of your family.
Gargle with hydrogen peroxide, put drops in the ear and nose to end colds, flu, chronic sinusitis (including polyps], and infections.
Tilt your head back and spray into nostrils with a 50/50 mixture whenever you have a cold, plugged sinus. It will bubble and help to kill the bacteria. Hold for a few minutes then blow your nose into a tissue.
Use it instead of mouthwash.
Let your toothbrushes soak in a cup of peroxide to keep them free of germs.
Industrial grade (35%) peroxide can also be purchased. Use it in your bath and experience skin healing and infections subsiding, and even internal inflammation.
