Hydrogen peroxide is a chemical compound with the formula H202. It is a clear, viscous liquid with strong oxidizing properties and is commonly used in disinfectants and bleaches. In fact, many people use hydrogen peroxide as a mild antiseptic on the skin to prevent infections of minor cuts, scrapes and burns. Another use of hydrogen peroxide is as a mouth rinse to help remove mucus or relieve minor mouth problems such as cankers or gingivitis.
Hydrogen peroxide works by releasing oxygen when it is applied to the area and its ability to kill microorganisms in the human body has been well documented since 1920. What most people may not realize is that hydrogen peroxide is part of your bodies natural immune defense.
In the immune system, white blood cells produce "peroxisomes," which manufactures Hydrogen Peroxide (H202) within the cells. The white blood cells engulf the virus or bacteria and with the help of peroxisomes, destroy the pathogen.
IV THERAPYWhen a medical grade hydrogen peroxide is infused into the veins, it bypasses the gut, and then breaks down into various oxygen sub-species. Through its actions, hydrogen peroxide severely inhibits the growth of anaerobic organisms. Anaerobic organisms (bacteria and viruses) do not require or are capable of occurring, in the absence of air or free oxygen. When the hydrogen peroxide comes in contact with anaerobic organisms its ability to inhibit growth is immediate.
