Hydrogen Peroxide IV Treatment in Scottsdale, Arizona
Hydrogen peroxide therapy (H202) is an intravenous therapy in which hydrogen peroxide is infused into the circulatory system through a vein in the arm. In its pure form, it is a colorless and odorless liquid, comprised of two hydrogen atoms and two oxygen atoms, an arrangement that makes the substance highly reactive. Presently, there are over 6,100 articles in scientific literature dating back to 1920 on the clinical applications of hydrogen peroxide.
It is well known that antibiotics are chemicals that kill the beneficial bacteria within your intestines and upset the delicate balance of the intestinal terrain. Fortunately, there are other options to treat common conditions without toxic side effects. Hydrogen peroxide, for example, can be used to treat conditions such as cold, flu and sinus infection, and many more. Hydrogen peroxide is a more natural option as our bodies automatically produce H202 constantly as part of metabolism. There are units in certain white blood cells called “peroxisomes,” which produce H2O2. These white cells then engulf bacteria that cause disease and mix them together with these peroxisomes. They both then disappear as the singlet oxygen from H2O2 destroys the bacteria or virus.
Intravenous Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy is an alternative health therapy that can be used to treat common infections such as cold, flu, and sinus infections. Presently, there are over 6,100 articles in scientific literature dating back to 1920 on the clinical applications of hydrogen peroxide.
It is well known that antibiotics can kill the beneficial bacteria within your intestines and upset the delicate balance of our intestinal tract which makes Hydrogen Peroxide Infusions an attractive alternative therapy. Hydrogen peroxide is a part of your normal immune defense and your body produces it constantly. Our white blood cells are partly responsible for our immune system and they produce something called "peroxisomes," which produce Hydrogen Peroxide (H202) intracellularly. The white blood cells engulf the virus or bacteria and with the help of peroxisomes, destroy the pathogen.
When we come down with an obvious infection, be it viral or bacterial, our defense mechanism has been overwhelmed. This is where a careful dilution of H202 administered intravenously can be a big help in fighting off infection.
Hydrogen peroxide therapy severely inhibits the growth of anaerobic organisms (bacteria and viruses that use carbon dioxide for fuel and leave oxygen as a by-product). This action is immediate, on contact with the anaerobic organism. H2O2 provides singlet oxygen, which, in turn, transforms biological waste products and industrial toxins into inert substances by oxidizing them.
Hydrogen Peroxide initially reacts with catalase in the plasma and the white blood cells. Later, it penetrates the cell membrane of erythrocytes (red blood cells), where it reacts with catalase within the cell, and additional oxygen is released.
According to William Campbell Douglass, MD, “peroxide is the ammunition of your killer cells. Your body’s elite corp of bacterial assassins, called polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN’s), engulf bacteria then kill them with the “respiratory burst.” The cell combines oxygen and water, making the H2O2. That’s the respiratory burst. The H202 then zaps the bacteria.
We use Hydrogen Peroxide Infusions to treat any infectious condition that can be treated with antibiotics, most commonly, Upper Respiratory Infections, Bronchitis, and Pneumonia. We also use it to treat many viral infections, influenza, sinus infections, and the common cold.
What are the benefits of hydrogen peroxide (H202) Therapy?
Clinical experience has shown that hydrogen peroxide therapy may be used for a number of conditions and issues and that the benefits include:
- Boosts the immune system by increasing the production of interferon by human killer cells and monocytes
- The increased oxygen content of tissues
- Inhibits all types of infections: viral, bacterial, fungal, parasitic
- Provides singlet oxygen, which in turn, transforms biological waste products and industrial toxins into inert substances by oxidizing them
- Dissolves cholesterol and calcium deposits associated with atherosclerosis
- Clears the lungs in cases of emphysema by producing oxygen bubbles in the alveoli which helps the mucus deposits to be coughed out
How does IV hydrogen peroxide treatment work?
Hydrogen peroxide therapy severely inhibits the growth of anaerobic organisms (bacteria and viruses that use carbon dioxide for fuel and leave oxygen as a by-product). This action is immediate, on contact with the anaerobic organism. H2O2 provides singlet oxygen, which, in turn, transforms biological waste products and industrial toxins into inert substances by oxidizing them. This makes them easy to handle for the kidneys and liver. It doubles the rate of enzymatic metabolism in the mitochondria within each cell, thus enabling the body to cleanse itself of toxins and still have plenty of energy to handle the business of living from moment to moment. This increase in metabolism probably accounts for some of the antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral effects of hydrogen peroxide.
In the blood, hydrogen peroxide encounters two enzymes: catalase and cytochrome-C. Catalase drives the above reaction to completion immediately. That part of the hydrogen peroxide that binds with cytochrome-C, however, is not allowed to become water and singlet oxygen for a period of 40-45 minutes. After about 40 minutes of being bound to cytochrome-C, this enzyme begins to act like catalase and breaks down the hydrogen peroxide to water and singlet oxygen. By this time, the hydrogen peroxide/cytochrome-C complex has been spread throughout the body. In this way, the benefits of hydrogen peroxide are made available to all cells.
With intravenous therapy, pharmaceutical-grade hydrogen peroxide is used under a strict sterile technique. The amount of hydrogen peroxide is predetermined by a doctor. It also could be mixed with a 5% dextrose solution to which magnesium sulfate and a small amount of manganese sulfate are added to prevent vein sclerosis. First, a nurse or practitioner will sterilize the insertion area, then insert a clean sterilized needle. Once the needle is inserted into the vein it will be connected to a tube where hydrogen peroxide will flow through and reach the circulatory system. The administration takes about 90 minutes, depending on the amount of H2O2 used.
