TREATMENT RATING: This cancer protocol is very effective at getting rid of cancer cells, however, this protocol does not contain the super-nutrients which deal with reversing damage to the non-cancerous cells due to cancer (e.g. lactic acid), chemotherapy, radiation, etc.

Most cancer patients die as a result of the damage to their non-cancerous cells. While hydrogen peroxide is an excellent cancer treatment, it is not a complete protocol which deals with the most dangerous issues faced by advanced cancer patients.

Futhermore, this protocol does not have expert technical (e.g. telephone) support; which is the single most important factor in surviving advanced cancer.

By itself, this protocol is only rated as being effective for newly diagnosed cancer patients who have not had severe damage to their non-cancerous cells and immune system by chemotherapy, radiation and/or surgery.

In addition, even for newly diagnosed cancer patients, this protocol is not considered strong enough, by itself, to treat fast-spreading cancers or cancers that have spread significantly.

This protocol is also effective as a supplemental protocol to the more complete protocols (e.g. the Bill Henderson Protocol) which deal with the damage to non-cancerous cells and the immune system. However, this protocol is not compatible with a few of the higher rated protocols (the technical expert of the higher rated protocol will make this determination).

If you are an advanced cancer patient who has had a lot of chemotherapy, radiation or surgery or you have a potentially fast-growing cancer, do not use this protocol as your primary cancer treatment, use one of the protocols linked to on the following web page:
Chapter on Treatments Rated For Advanced Cancer Patients


WARNING: Do NOT use Hydrogen Peroxide as part of any enema. Hydrogen peroxide can expand and cause very serious health problems.



Introduction to Hydrogen Peroxide As A Cancer Treatment

This article describes how to use hydrogen peroxide in the treatment of cancer. However, this article will go much further into the theory of hydrogen peroxide than other articles. For example, this article will discuss why the protein coating which covers all cancer cells may reduce the effectiveness of the hydrogen peroxide protocol and how to overcome this issue.

But before getting into the use of hydrogen peroxide to treat cancer, it should be emphasized that while hydrogen peroxide is an excellent treatment for cancer, using hydrogen peroxide to cure cancer does not deal with many key issues faced by advanced cancer patients whose bodies have been severely damaged by their cancer and by their orthodox cancer treatments. In many cases, it is not the cancer cells which kill cancer patients, but rather other issues, such as damage to key organs, damage to non-cancerous cells, etc.

Examples of what hydrogen peroxide does not deal with would include:
1) rebuilding the immune system,
2) rebuilding the damage done to the stomach and colon by chemotherapy,
3) dealing with cachexia directly,
4) protecting the non-cancerous cells from the damage done by cancer and orthodox treatments.
5) protecting the organs from damage caused by the cancer and orthodox treatments,
etc. etc.

Advanced cancer patients who have had significant orthodox cancer treatments are strongly encouraged to integrate this protocol with treatments which deal with other issues faced by advanced cancer patients.

However, BEFORE doing this the warnings below should be studied carefully.

Once you understand the warnings, see this free eBook on the treatment of advanced cancer:
The Treatment of Stage IV Cancers



Getting Hydrogen Peroxide Inside the Cancer Cells

Note: Unlike other products which kill microbes, do NOT use DMSO to get hydrogen peroxide inside of cancer cells. This is not a safe procedure according to my information.

It has been clinically demonstrated that the spread or metastatis of cancer is inversely proportional to the amount of oxygen around the cancer cells. The more oxygen, the slower the cancer spreads. The less oxygen, the faster the cancer spreads. If cancer cells get enough oxygen, they will die (cancer cells are anaerobic). It is thought that hydrogen peroxide kills cancer cells because cancer cells do not have the mechanism to break down hydrogen peroxide that healthy cells have.

The issue in curing cancer with hydrogen peroxide boils down to getting enough hydrogen peroxide inside the cancer cells.

Every cancer cell has a thick protein (i.e. enzyme) coating on its surface. The protein coating blocks many substances, and perhaps much of the hydrogen peroxide, from getting to the surface of the cell and thus from getting inside the cell.

So what can be done to get a higher percentage of the hydrogen peroxide past the protein coating and inside the cancer cells?



Proteolytic enzymes (also called: pancreatic enzymes) literally cut apart the thick protein coating which covers cancer cells. Proteolytic enzymes are normally used to cut apart the protein coating so that the immune system can recognize the cells as cancerous. The use of proteolytic enzymes for this reason has been around for decades.

By cutting apart the protein coating proteolytic enzymes may also be able to get much more hydrogen peroxide inside the cancer cells.

There are many, many brands of proteolytic enzyme supplements. One of the best is Univase Forte. Build up to 7 pills, three times a day for the standard doses. Higher doses can be used. Use a search engine to find an online vendor of Univase Forte.

Univase Forte, however, does not contain nattokinase, which helps to dissolve blood clots. Enzyme supplements which contain nattokinase should not be used in high doses because they thin the blood too effectively. However, they are important enzymes to prevent blood clots. If blood clots are a potential issue for the cancer patient, I suggest the high quality enzyme supplement: 10Zymes (the only vendor will be mentioned below).

(Note: Cancer patients who are taking prescription blood thinners should work with their medical doctor as they slowly integrate ANY enzyme products with their prescription drugs!!)

In other words, all cancer patients who use hydrogen peroxide should use a quality proteolytic enzyme such as Univase Forte. Additionally, those cancer patients who are concerned about blood clots should use two enzyme supplements. The enzyme with nattokinase should be used in low doses (no more than one per day) and the enzyme without nattokinase should be used in high doses.

These enzymes also break apart hydrogen peroxide into oxygen and water, which is a good thing because it helps prevent some stomach issues to be discussed below.

The Essense of Life website is the only website which sells 10Zymes (it is a proprietary blend), but whether you use 10Zymes or not, they also sell a very high quality magnesium supplement which all persons who take Vitamzym should take (take one teaspoon a day of the magnesium):

Hydrogen Peroxide


  • "Nobel prize winner Dr. Otto Warburg demonstrated over 50 years ago the basic difference between normal cells and cancer cells. Both derive energy from glucose, but the normal cell requires oxygen to combine with the glucose, while cancer cells break down glucose without oxygen, yielding only 1/15 the energy per glucose molecule that a normal cell produces. This is why cancer cells have such a huge appetite for sugar, and also why people who consume excessive quantities of sugar tend to get cancer more often."

Controlling cancer can be done by controlling the oxygen and/or controlling the things that free up oxygen (e.g. ionized water) and other ways. Hydrogen peroxide, or other oxygen therapies, are one of the most widely used cancer therapies world-wide because they provide oxygen to the cancer cells. They are safe and effective. H2O2 is also used for a host of other ailments, including AIDS and any other virus based illness.

I want to emphasize very strongly that you should not use any type of hydrogen peroxide unless it is "Food Grade." The junk you buy at grocery stores and most health food stores is high in iron and who knows what other chemicals (as a minimum they are not removed) and is for EXTERNAL USE ONLY. Cancer treatments should not involve this stuff under ANY circumstances. See vendors in the links below.

There is no controversy about H2O2 being used topically (i.e. externally) or with an I.V. However, there is a major controversy about whether it should be taken orally.


  • "The most common form of hydrogen peroxide therapy used by doctors is as an intravenous drip. For use at home, some individuals add a cup of 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide [or 10 cups of 3%] to a bathtub of warm water and soak for 20 to 30 minutes as the hydrogen peroxide is absorbed through the skin. Others drink a glass of water to which several drops or more of food or reagent grade hydrogen peroxide have been added [note: use Food Grade H2O2]. Although there have been reports of improved health with oral use, physicians like Dr. Farr believed that taking hydrogen peroxide orally could have a corrosive and tumorous effect on the stomach and small intestine and advised against using it. There is animal research supporting this caution."

Actually, if you added 4 cups of 35% H2O2 to the bath water it would only be about a 1/5 of 1% solution of H2O2 (assuming 45 gallons are in the tub).

Robert O. Young, PhD is another person who recommends against taking H2O2 internally. In his book Sick and Tired? he states:


  • "Some health practitioners have given hydrogen peroxide internally to patients. There have been some reports of success with this, but it is highly controversial. My opinion is that it should never be used internally for any reason. For one thing, it is not a nutrient, and the risk of it combining in the body with superoxide is too great."
    Sick and Tired?, page 74.

His reasoning is that if superoxide and hydrogen peroxide react with each other, they form one of the most active (i.e. dangerous) free radicals of all - hydroxyl radical, OH.

However, that is not the end of the story. Another expert, Dr. David G. Williams, has extensively researched this issue and considers the internal injestion of H2O2 to be perfectly safe. He notes:


  • "A single atom of oxygen, however, is very reactive and is referred to as a free radical. Over the past several years, we've continually read that these free radicals are responsible for all types of ailments and even premature aging. What many writers seem to forget, however, is that our bodies create and use free radicals to destroy harmful bacteria, viruses, and fungi.

    In fact, the cells responsible for fighting infection and foreign invaders in the body (your white blood cells) make hydrogen peroxide and use it to oxidize any offending culprits. The intense bubbling you see when hydrogen peroxide comes in contact with a bacteria-laden cut or wound is the oxygen being released and bacteria being destroyed. The ability of our cells to produce hydrogen peroxide is essential for life. H202 is not some undesirable by-product or toxin, but instead a basic requirement for good health.

This is a superb article, by the way. Also in this article is a reference for the different grades of H2O2:


  • "Hydrogen peroxide is available in various strengths and grades.

    3% Pharmaceutical Grade: This is the grade sold at your local drugstore or supermarket. This product is not recommended for internal use. It contains an assortment of stabilizers which shouldn't be ingested. Various stabilizers include: acetanilide, phenol, sodium stanate and tertrasodium phosphate.

    6% Beautician Grade: This is used in beauty shops to color hair and is not recommended for internal use.

    30% Reagent Grade: This is used for various scientific experimentation and also contains stabilizers. It is also not for internal use.

    30% to 32% Electronic Grade: This is used to clean electronic parts and not for internal use.

    35% Technical Grade: This is a more concentrated product than the Reagent Grade and differs slightly in that phosphorus is added to help neutralize any chlorine from the water used to dilute it.

    35% Food Grade: This is used in the production of foods like cheese, eggs, and whey-containing products. It is also sprayed on the foil lining of aseptic packages containing fruit juices and milk products. THIS IS THE ONLY GRADE RECOMMENDED FOR INTERNAL USE...

    90%: This is used as an oxygen source for rocket fuel.

    Only [highly diluted] 35% Food Grade hydrogen peroxide is recommended for internal use [note: obviously his point is that only Food Grade hydrogen peroxide should be taken internally, there are lower concentrations than 35%]. At this concentration [i.e. 35%], however, hydrogen peroxide is a very strong oxidizer and if not diluted, it can be extremely dangerous or even fatal. Any concentrations over 10% can cause neurological reactions and damage to the upper gastrointestinal tract.

Regardless of how hydrogen peroxide is used, it can be toxic if its concentration is too high. However, when diluted to theraputic levels it is totally safe for external use or I.V.s.
