Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide For Candida

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Has anyone taken food grade hydrogen peroxide and been cured of candida? My sister wants to try this and I'm concerned for her. Anyone have any info about this treatment?

Thanks

That sounds very dangerous, and she should consult a medical professional (who might tell her that candida overgrowth does not, in fact, cause leaky gut or anything similar, because that's what's accepted in the medical community at the moment, there being no scientific evidence to prove otherwise). I'm not sure what "food grade" hydrogen peroxide is, given that hydrogen peroxide is a known toxin that people have to be very careful to not ingest when, for instance, they are treating a mouth-area wound with it. Does that just mean extremely diluted? Has hydrogen peroxide been proven to have any effect on candida yeast at all in the first place? In my looking around, it doesn't appear that it has. I'm going to call my mom (a doctor) later today anyway and I'll ask her, but I have a feeling she'll also say this is a bad idea that could lead to some severe health repercussions with no benefit.

It is very dangerous. Read this post from Snopes.com to get the details:

I frequently rinse my mouth with it and accidentally swallowed it once and became very sick. And it wasn't a lot, just a small amount in water.

Hope this helps.

I've brushed my teeth with Hydrogen Peroxide and baking soda for over 30 years without any ill effects. Usually when I go to the dentist they always say something about my health gums. But I certainly wouldn't want to drink it.

Right, there are medically sound reasons to have hydrogen peroxide in one's mouth. When my boyfriend had oral surgery, he had to rinse with hydrogen peroxide. BUT! There are no medically sound reasons to swallow it, yikes. And it doesn't even make sense, for a yeast overgrowth, even if that yeast overgrowth DID cause a "leaky" gut. You'd be better off swallowing Lotrimin, which is also a horrible idea.

What I have read on the web is that it's diluted to 3% with distilled water. It's suppose to be taken on an empty stomach and it destroys candida and all bacteria in the stomach, includng the good. I agree with everyone here, it seems dangerous.

I did read that eating yogurt and vitamin C create hydrogen peroxide that kills the bad bacteria.

Thanks for the replies. I would be interested in what your mother the Dr. said.

My mom (the doctor) says there is absolutely no medical support for the idea of candida overgrowth causing leaky gut, that medical evidence suggests that that is NOT the case, and that drinking hydrogen peroxide at any strength is a) dangerous and B) ineffective. Leaky gut syndrome is not recognized by the medical community, in other words, and even if it were, hydrogen peroxide wouldn't make sense as a remedy.

My mom's not someone who thinks all homeopathic remedies are bad or that medicine knows everything. However, when medical evidence runs directly counter to homeopathic ideas/remedies, she sides with medicine and science, as do I. So that's her advice, for whatever you think it's worth.
