Hello I am new here and I'm wanting to know if anyone has tried Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy to fight Hep C? I have known several people who have tried the treatments on the market oddered by Doctors and none of them have cleared this virus.I have this virus but am not here for myself. I have a 19 year old daughter who we believe contracted this from a manicure for prom three years ago. I just want her to live a full and happy life.She has so much to offer mankind. Thank You. please let me know something...
Welcome to the forum, Ms Natural. Sorry for you and your daughter. I have to admit I have never heard of a hydrogen peroxide treatment, but there is no cure for hepatitis C except the interferon and ribavirin treatment. Have either of you had liver biopsies? The first thing you might do is determine the extent of the damage thru a liver biopsy. Your daughter has probably sustained very little damage in 3 years, and might be able to wait for better treatments. Rest assured, your daughtere (and you) will have long and fruitful lives. If you go back thru the archives here, you will see many great threads regarding vitamins and nutritional help for the liver.
Good luck. Should you decide to opt for traditional treatment, you will find that many are treating successfully without the severe side effects which you hear about. If you haven't already, I suggest you check out this informative sight for good information on hepatitis C
You mean about the toe painting? I have had two pedicures and they are great - more like a massage for the foot than a nail painting - but I won't get any more. They cut all the callouses off (yes, cut) and they shave and file the skin and callouses, not just the nails. I see all the beauticians in my saloon carrying around the same equipment from toe to toe. I don't believe there is any kind of sterilization process. So, no more toezy painting for me unless I do it myself ( and that is not nearly as much fun). I do think it is possible to be infected by contaminated tools in this process.
Friole, yes I too love to get my feet soaked and the calluses taken off and rubbed. I bring my own utensils and polish and have even thought of wiping out the foot tub with my own bleach solution! Never have but it is imperitive they use good disinfecting of tools and tubs. I got a fungus from one place once and my foot had a red raised area and the skin peeled. No itch, but it just wouldn't go away. A few sprays of Tinactin (generic) got rid of it. I won't go back there to that salon.
Many of our salons in this region of the US has only VietNamese technicians, and freqently they cannot understand my English.
Any how, every one should be careful of cross-contamination in manicure/pedicure places.
HI, it seems somewhere i did read about hydrogen peroxide. Although it seems to work best if taken with vitamins.
After taking the peroxide and vitamins you should jump up and down so you will mix them together real well, then i belive it said to stand upright for 15 minutes then stand on your head for 15 minutes.
Keep rotating doing this so it will keep the mixture in the center of your body..... ie. as close to the liver as possible.
Sorry about your daughter. I've heard of hydrogen peroxide therapy but as far as I know it doesn't cure anything.
Fortunately, better combination therapy now cures about 50% of all cases.
But before you worry about treating, you should first have your daughter evaluated by a liver specialist called a heptologist. If she hasn't already, she should have a test for both viral load and genotype. If these tests show she definitely has the virus, the doctor may do a liver biopsy.
Only when you have all this information should you decide whether to treat or not. The hepatitis c virus is generally very slow moving and many people live with it for years without treating. But you won't know if that's your daughter's case until she is tested.
I also strongly suggest you set an example and have all these tests done at the same time. If you want to be able to support your daughter, it's important you pay attention to your own health. Otherwise, she may have to end up supporting you.
Hey, now that you mention it, I saw that on CSI last week. --- only they screwed up -- the therapeutic beauty clinic was supposed to be injecting a 3% solution of hydrogen peroxide but used 30% instead and killed the people.
You know what was funny, when I was watching it the reason they discovered it was they were looking at the blood and it was all exploded. At the time, I was thinking - that must be what the Riba is doing to our RBC's.
Anyhow, definitely does not sound like hydrogen peroxide would be good for anyone for C.
check or i call U of Pennsylvania (Hospital) Dept. of Integrated Medicine, there you might find the information that you seek.
I have tow doctors treating my HCV, one Gastro Doc, and one Integrated Medicine Dr. My Integrated Medicine is in that dept.
Although he did at one time bring the subjuct up of what he called a "peroxide Treatment", he agreed with my gastro that Interferon and Ribavirin was the best course of action. While my gastro dr. treats me with the Interferon & Riba (Pegasys), my Integrated Medicine Dr. is treating my entire body and helping to support my immune system via supplements and other treatments, which i need not go into.
I will only stress two things. First, both doctors are fully aware of the each others treatments and have corresponed many times. Second, this is the path that "I" chose (along with the help of my wife) and it has been very expensive. My Gastro Dr's treatment (Pegasys) is covered under insurance, my Integrated Medicine Dr. is not. That is all out of pocket.
I was curious because I never heard of this so I looked it up on the Sloan-Ketterling Site (they have a section on herb and alternative treatments) and this is what they had to say:
hydrogen peroxide therapy, involving intravenous infusion, ingestion, colonic administration, or soaking in hydrogen peroxide solution; ozone colonics and ozone autohemotherapy, in which blood is bubbled with ozone and reinjected; hyperbaric oxygen chambers; and
as suggested, have a hepatology evaluation. I don't know what genotype your friends had that made the tx ineffective, but genotypes 2 and 3 have a better shot at a virological cure than geno one. Which one does your daughter have? If she is one of the former she can be done and cured in 6 months. Don't look for "natural" hep c treatments, there are none, but your immune system.
If the biopsy shows little damage, she can just have her condition monitored on a regular basis.
I guess you had your daughter tested for hep c throught out the years and it was negative until recently? There is a small percentage that gets it through the mother and it is the same genotype as the mother. Is she a different genotype than you?
Thank you all for your comments. She is doing great as am I. She has had a liver biopsy and I have not. At the time the doctor wasn't sure I was going to get it and test positive. She had a manicure, just her fingernails. They cut her cuticle very badly.... I thought to myself that it wasn't good at the time. I remember the feeling. We only found out because she donated blood for school.I want but did not test positive for another six weeks. We are both very healthy with no signs of anything. Our viral loads are in the stage 0. 475,000. I just would like for us to not have this. I probably got it from using the same razor as Ali. I just want her to have the life I know she should have so I look and question everything. I don't believe in pharms so I keep looking. The treatment I was checking out is three drops three times a day of food grade h2o2 which is 35%.It then goes up from there. This is diluted with 8 oz of water. Anyway I am going to check with Dr Rea for environmental illness in Dallas. He is alternative. Again thanks.
if she and you are not going to treat, you did not mention what genotypes you two were, it is best to just take normal supplements and regular regimen of exercise nothing out of the ordinary, just healthy living.
Please do not try any of these hep c "treatments" offered in the so called "alternative" sites. They do not get rid of hep c, no matter what some of the testimonials claim, they do not erradicate the virus. Some might offer relief in inflammation and thus a reprieve to the liver, but It is best to consult with reputable sites like the John Hopkins site, someone here, tallblonde had that link. You could do more damage by trying things like colloidal silver, and peroxide and there is no reason to try these things, since they do not offer any benefit against hep c. Try the normal antioxidants, presently under research, like selenium. If you are genotype 2, you have a GREAT chance to rid yourselves of this curse for good. Big pharmas have helped some with end stage liver disease to live longer lives, don't count them out entirely. They are not demons.
good luck to you both
Thanks for your information. That is what we've done so far. We are both 1B. It is the hardest to treat I was told by the doctor. She takes nothing and is in good health except for these breakouts on her face about once a year. I take lots of vitamins and supplements and we are both in about the same place... go figure. There is something to be said for youth, thank goodness for her. Have a good day...
personally - i think clorox would work better than peroxide - the exploding blood cells on the csi show werent from riba - it was from the peroxide - and 1b is not the hardest to treat - its one of the two hardest to treat along with 1a
Back in the 1920s, IV H202 was the treatment for Hep C.
In small studies (back from the 1920s though) it had reported success rates above 90%. These types of non peer reviewed studies wouldn't hold up well now a days, but it was used for Hepatis and polio virus back then.
It's well known it has antiviral properties. Works well on EVB also.
Also look into the many studies done by the food industry who spray/clean our fruits/vegetables with h202 after harvesting
I would not have opted for the biopsy; likely not a big deal. The following have been most effective for HEP C. Silymarin, a chemical found in Milk Thistle....Frequent doses of Vitamin C after finding the max dosage through tittering. Alpha Linoic Acid.....Selenium. This regimen is most effective in countering the virus.
Just as important is what not to do. Reduce or completely reframe from sugar and white flour. Stay away from all drugs containing Acetaminophen. Stay away from Tylenol, Ibuprofen.. Also include Lysine in your regimen.
