Hydrogen Peroxide


Adapted from Dr. Sean Ceasar, N.D. in British Columbia Canada.

What is Intravenous Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy?

IV Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy is an alternative health therapy with a large number of devoted adherents. Advocates of this therapy claim that injecting 3% hydrogen peroxide intravenously via a drip for approximately an hour and a half per session will cure a number of diverse conditions ranging from the common cold to cancer. 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 quantities of oxygen.

How does IV Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy Work?

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. In addition, the released oxygen performs a host of helpful actions within the body including the inhibition and/or destruction of a number of anaerobic organisms such as viruses, bacteria and cancer. (Anaerobic organisms are all pathogens.)

Additionally, hydrogen peroxide stimulates the body's production of white blood cells, helps to break down calcium deposits within blood vessels, dissolves cholesterol, and converts the waste products and toxins that are the by-products of cellular processes into a form that is easily eliminated.

Furthermore, Intravenous Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy helps form adenosine triphosphate (ATP), a nucleotide that is responsible for providing the energy necessary for the proper functioning of cells. ATP is made in a cell's mitochondria. Some researchers believe chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia are caused by faulty mitochrondrial and ATP performance.

IV hydrogen peroxide works to regulate mitochondrial membrane exchanges, and people who suffer with these conditions benefit from this treatment. In addition, hydrogen peroxide improves and/or cures a host of other ailments -- Lyme disease, viruses including herpes, HIV influenza and the Epstein-Barr virus, sinus infections, hardening of the arteries (Arteriosclerosis), strokes (if treatment is initiated rapidly enough, damage can be reversed), Transischemic Attacks (TIAs, or so-called "mini-strokes), asthma, emphysema, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and more.

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.

What conditions are treated with IV Hydrogen Peroxide?

  • Bacterial infections including Lyme disease and co-infection
  • Viral infections including herpes
  • Epstein-Barr virus
  • CMV
  • HIV
  • Influenza
  • The common cold
  • Sinus infections
  • Candida
  • Various fungal infections
  • Angina
  • Arteriosclerosis (hardening of the arteries)
  • Stroke- can reverse damage from stroke if began early enough
  • TIAs (Transischemic Attacks)
  • Leg Pain
  • Migraine/cluster headaches
  • Poor circulation
  • Asthma
  • COPD
  • Emphysema
  • Chronic Bronchitis
  • Environmental Allergies/sensitivity
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Is IV Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy Safe?

IV Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy has an excellent safety record when administered correctly. Our overseeing doctors are highly trained and with SynergyMed's attention to safety and protocol, adverse reactions are rare but may include discomfort at the IV insertion site and inflammation of the vein. Both can easily be corrected by simply slowing the rate of infusion.
