Which Medical Miracle is Sitting Right in Your Own Bathroom?
One of the best household remedies around is hydrogen peroxide (H2O2). This is truly a miraculous substance. It’s available everywhere, super inexpensive, completely safe, and perhaps best of all, it works…well, miracles!
Hydrogen peroxide has been used at least as far back as the early part of the 19th century, when many bacterial diseases were killed by H2O2, including syphilis, asthma, ulcers, cholera, and whooping cough. As pharmaceutical drugs became more abundant, hydrogen peroxide increasingly became to be something that was pushed to the side, and finally, virtually discarded as a viable treatment option.
In your body’s immune system, hydrogen peroxide is released by T-cells to kill off fungi, viruses, and bacteria. Hydrogen peroxide stimulates cells that are natural killers which attack cancer cells as they attempt to move and spread through your body. Inside your colon, healthy bacteria called acidophilus lactobacillus produces hydrogen peroxide, which keeps candida yeast from becoming overgrown.
An important factor to remember is that the normal hydrogen peroxide you get at your local drug store, which is normally marked 3% hydrogen peroxide, should never be taken internally. There is a food grade version of hydrogen peroxide that you can take, which should be marked 35% Food Grade hydrogen peroxide that you will dilute with water. This version is a bit harder to find, but you can ask for it at your local health food store or find it online.
Hydrogen peroxide has hundreds of uses, but take a look at the top 20 ways you can use this little miracle in a brown bottle all over your house.
1. Kills Foot and Nail Fungus
If you have ugly toenail fungus or athlete’s foot, hydrogen peroxide is an excellent way to kill it off quickly. Make a spray with equal parts of hydrogen peroxide and water, then spray your feet (and toenails) every night before bed. Allow your feet to thoroughly air dry before putting on socks or slippers.
2. Kills Infections
If you have a cut, boil, or other type of skin infection, soak it for at least 5 minutes, several times per day. Even stubborn infections can’t stand up to regular doses of hydrogen peroxide. Read also about herbs that heal yeast infections.
3. Whiten Teeth Naturally
Don’t pay your dentist that outrageous price for white teeth, and throw out those awful tasting plastic strips and trays. Simply take the small white cap off your bottle of H2O2, fill it with hydrogen peroxide, then swish the liquid in your mouth for 5 or 10 minutes after brushing. Watch how much whiter your teeth will be in a matter of days.
NOTE: Don’t ever swallow peroxide. Spit it out, and then rinse your mouth with plain water.
4. Cleans Contact Lenses
Hydrogen Peroxide can break down the proteins that tend to accumulate on contact lenses. You don’t need to buy those expensive soaking solutions. Simply use hydrogen peroxide.
5. Perfect All-Around Cleaner
Mix up a spray bottle with equal parts of hydrogen peroxide and water. You can use this mixture to clean kitchen counters, kitchen tables, refrigerators, microwaves, blenders, and even your kid’s toys and lunchboxes. Germs don’t stand a chance when it comes to hydrogen peroxide!
