To the question of what kind of hydrogen peroxide, many respond without thinking. After all, in school at the lesson, the teacher’s chemistry lessons, though briefly, but still explained that it is this transparent liquid that does not have a smell, no taste, but dissolved in water, gives it a specific metal flavor. The chemical formula of this compound resembles a water formula, but with an additional index 2 near the oxygen symbol — H2O2. Yes, hydrogen peroxide is combined into a single integer two hydrogen molecules and two oxygen molecules, but say that this «Commonwealth» is so strong as water can not.
The hydrogen peroxide is very well soluble in water, alcohol, ether, but in contact with the acids, salts and metals, an additional oxygen molecule with ease of leaving its place and, joining other chemical compounds, manifests both oxidative and rehabilitation properties. With the same ease, the same molecule leaves his post upon contact of hydrogen peroxide with air and light. In this case, the air is enriched with oxygen, and the liquid is referred to as peroxide turns into ordinary water.
In other words, it seems that hydrogen peroxide is not sustainable. However, this is not quite true. Contacting acids and meadows, it actually comes into contact very quickly, then oxidizing them. But when contacting the air, the process of decomposition of peroxide peroxide and oxygen occurs not so rapidly: approximately 1% oxygen leaves its place in this connection for a month. When boiling peroxide, and this occurs at a temperature of + 67 ° C, the amount of oxygen in its composition decreases, but in small quantities. The freezing process occurs at a temperature of 0.5 ° C, and in such a state the decomposition time of this compound slows down. The concentrated solutions of hydrogen peroxide are explosive, while the power of the explosion is quite powerful. However, 3% solution that can be purchased in any pharmacy does not represent any danger, opposite this is a very useful fluid that owns unique healing properties. By the way, it is recommended to store it in a tightly closed darkened container.
About 200 years ago in 1818, the French chemist Luis Ternar, conducting a number of chemical experiments with barium peroxide and sulfuric acid was able to obtain several ml of hydrogen peroxide in its pure form. Since then, there has been a lot of time and this is a chemical compound, undergoing a thorough study, each time he opened all new and new faces of their properties and opportunities before humanity, which gave rise to significantly expand its scope. And if in the first years they were asked to him, since the experiments held by the German chemist Yu.V. Brulem at the beginning of the XIX century were crowned with a powerful explosion destroying the table on which they were held together with the contents and everything that was on it, To date, hydrogen peroxide is rather in demand. As an excellent bleaching agent, it is used in textile, paper and other industries. As a powerful oxidizing agent, it is used in rocket construction.
Many women probably remember the time when a hydroperite tablet (and this is 35% H2O2) was the only reasonable means able to turn the burning brunette into a bright blonde. Now, when abundant painting, hydroperite has lost its relevance in this regard. Nevertheless, its property bleach hair has been preserved.
As an excellent antiseptic and hemostatic remedy for hydrogen peroxide is used in medicine.
Hydrogen peroxide is not artificially obtained as a result of chemical experiments with a substance. This connection in nature is occupied everywhere: in large and small drops of rain and white snowflakes falling from the sky, raging threads of mountain rivers with foaming water, in fresh vegetables and fruits, roasted coffee beans and, finally, in the human body. Yes, this mysterious fluid is synthesized in our body and plays a very important role in the first place as an indispensable participant of many exchange processes, the synthesis of vitamins, a heat source, a regulator and a stimulator of the trouble-free operation of many organism systems. And, of course, this is an indispensable source of atomic oxygen, without which our body loses the ability to function. However, it is impossible to forget that the disadvantage and the above-dimensional amount of oxygen in the body provoke a number of diseases, many of which are considered incurable and lead to a fatal outcome. Atomic oxygen is a murderous force for many living organisms. If 10-15 ml of peroxide pour into one liter of water, then all microorganisms present in it will die. It will not be able to escape even very resistant to the external factors of the causative agents of cholera, typhoid and Siberian ulcers. In our body, both useful and pathogenic or pathogenic microorganisms are successfully leaving, which are caused by many diseases. At the first appearance of a foreign body, the body’s immune system is activated and thanks to special killeram cells, which themselves produce this murderous for all living things (viruses, fungi, parasites, etc.) liquid (hydrogen peroxide) tries to destroy the unwanted aliens. Nevertheless, our immune system does not always cope with this task.
Its initial capabilities are reduced by various reasons, and with the occurrence of oxygen deficiency in the body is created a favorable environment for the life and prosperity of pathogenic microflora. All this together becomes the reason for the occurrence of various diseases with which we begin to fight with medication. The fact that many diseases can be cured by hydrogen peroxide approves a certain number of physicians carefully studying this question over the centuries. Moreover, some of them are confident that regular use of hydrogen peroxide can prevent many diseases. But is it really? After all, official medicine already adheres to any other opinions and is limited to its use only to disinfect postoperative and purulent wounds and stopping bleeding.
At the beginning of the twentieth century, French doctors were actively involved in the influence of hydrogen peroxide on the human body, as evidenced by the publication preserved to our days on the pages of the prestigious magazine «Lancet». Here, two doctors of Medicine Mr. Terentiff and Mr. Stebablin in Unison argue that in 1811, experiments with hydrogen peroxide have already been carried out in France. It was intravenously injected with animals, which, by the way, felt perfectly after this procedure. And in 1916, the same scientists have successfully conducted a similar experiment with the human body and already at that time confirmed the effectiveness and safety of such a treatment method. In the United States, with the help of peroxide in 1988, Dr. Bulk successfully cured a patient suffering from diphtheria.
But in those distant times, this disease was considered incurable, moreover, it took thousands of lives annually. In 1920, another article appeared in the magazine «Lanzeta», confirming the effectiveness of the use of hydrogen peroxide as a drug. This article describes how the doctors of the English garrison, located at the time in India, came to despair from the mortality rates of soldiers sick of lung inflammation, which reached 80%. They began to introduce the remaining hydrogen peroxide intravenously, which gave the opportunity to save the lives to the majority. However, a similar attempt to cure a patient with a diagnosis of lung inflammation, conducted by Dr. Singh in 1940 ended fatally, the patient did not survive.
Many doctors have experimented over the past 200 years and proved the effectiveness of the use of this fund during the treatment of one or another disease. As we can see, not all experiments ended successfully, but most of them were irrefutable evidence of its effectiveness. Dr. Edward Rosenroow, who lived at the turn of the XIX and XX centuries, dedicated 40 years of his life to the application of hydrogen peroxide as a therapeutic agent, thorough about 450 scientific papers. And, since 1932, this relay was continued by scientists not only Europe and America, but also Asia, giving the world more than 6,000 articles on this topic. In the twentieth century, he began, and continues to this day, to develop and implement the topic of the effectiveness of the use of hydrogen peroxide in medicine known to many Professor I.P. Neumyvakin. And in spite of everything, official medicine continues to insist on the fact that such a treatment method is ineffective and dangerous. It should be noted that most of the experiments have confirm the fact of the effectiveness of the use of hydrogen peroxide in the treatment of a number of diseases provoked by viral, bacterial, fungal and other parasitic microorganisms.
Moreover, by scientists of one of the oldest universities of the United States of the University of Bailor, in the 60s of the last century, it was possible to confirm that the saturation of the body with oxygen with hydrogen peroxide improves the state of the vessels during atherosclerosis, prevents a fatal outcome in a heart attack and makes more efficient irradiation of cancer tumors. Later studies confirmed that the peroxide helps to get rid of arthritis and a number of other rheumatoid and autoimmune diseases and perfectly copes with colds. However, this happens only when the peroxide is administered intravenously. And if someone has a desire and confidence in the effectiveness of such treatment without doctors who believe in a positive result of treatment here can not do. The functions of hydrogen peroxide in the body are not limited to the destruction of pathogenic microflora. It activates the cells of the immune system (the so-called T-lymphocytes or killer cells) to more active actions. That is, after intravenous administration of peroxide, the work of the immune system is activated, which is very relevant in the presence of any disease. In addition, this unique liquid manifests detoxifying properties. It oxidizes toxic substances and thereby prevents their assimilation.
For example, the oxidation of lipids or fats, prevents them in sticking to the walls of the vessels and thus prevents the occurrence of atherosclerosis. By the way, the staff of the University of Bailor watching patients who managed to clean the vessels and get rid of atherosclerosis found that the passability of purified vessels was continued. That is, repeated cholesterol plaques on them did not stick. There is another way to use hydrogen peroxide as a therapeutic agent — internal or oral administration. The first who suggested it in this way, was Edward Rosenroou even at the beginning of the twentieth century. He even developed a permissible admission scheme that did not lose its relevance to this day. This is necessary for this scheme in order to reduce the risks of side effects during such treatment, one of which is damage to the stomach mucosa and the risk of the occurrence of ulcers and gastric cancer or duodenum. The thing is that in the gastrointestinal tract of the substance, by which the peroxide is instantly split into water and oxygen (the catalase enzyme) is practically absent. And in contact with fatty acids, ascorbic acid salts, iron and other components, it comes to the reaction with them, as a result of which free radicals are formed. And about their disastrous effect on the body, more than enough. However, if you adhere to the recommendations that the one-time reception should not exceed 10 drops of 3% of the peroxide on 50 ml of water no more than three times a day for half an hour before meals, then such treatment will only benefit. The reception can be made after 1.5 — 2 hours after meals, but it is impossible to combine this process with food, since in this case the risk of stomach ulcers and cancer increases several times. Professor Neumyvakin recommends that such treatment with one drop, increasing the dose on one drop for 10 days and continue to continue receiving 10 drops once a day daily.
In the presence of serious diseases and intravenous and oral use of hydrogen peroxide, it is necessary to carry out a doctor under observation. Since the side effects with all the safety of such treatment still happen. And not all organisms are equally reacting to this healing method. No less effectively use hydrogen peroxide externally. This is especially true with shallow cuts, purulent wounds, trophic ulcers. In the presence of skin diseases (such as psoriasis, acne, eczema, etc.) and such as Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, arthritis and others, accompanied by inflammatory processes and painful sensations, it is recommended to carry out the compresis with peroxide on the affected areas. At the same time, a solution is prepared at the rate of one or two teaspoons of peroxide on 50 ml of water. In such a solution, it is good to rinse the throat with an angina or an oral cavity in periodontal disease or gingivitis. Many doctors recommend to forget about the toothpaste and brush, and in return after each meal rinse the mouth with a solution of peroxide. By the way, this is an excellent way to get rid of the unpleasant odor from the oral cavity. Special attention is paid to baths cooked with peroxide. But about their benefits, as about how the peroxide affects gray hair, you can learn from another article of our site — «Baths with hydrogen peroxide».
This is such a hydrogen peroxide — the liquid can be disinfected, oxidizing, whiten and at the same time cure. Liquid causing serious disputes and debates among physicians. And if you have a desire to correct your health with this fund, do not neglect the opportunity to get a competent consultation at the attending physician. Health and well-being to you.
