In 2008, Madison Cavanaugh wrote a book called "The One Minute Cure" which detailed how using hydrogen peroxide therapy could potentially cure any disease, including cancer. This therapy can be administered in a number of ways, including a patient soaking in a hydrogen peroxide bath to oxygenate the body and rid themselves of cancer.

## History

The use of hydrogen peroxide for therapeutic benefits was first reported 170 years ago during the reign of Queen Victoria. Minute amounts were added to drinking water to cure both common and more serious diseases. During World War I, it was used intravenously to successfully treat pneumonia. Over the years, it has been studied at medical research centers around the world including, Yale University, University of California-Los Angeles and Harvard University.

## Theory

Hydrogen peroxide therapy works by oxygenating the body, or adding more oxygen to the blood stream. Dr. Otto Warburg theorized in his Nobel Prize winning work that diseases, including cancer, could only survive in an oxygen depleted environment. By adding more oxygen back into the body, it creates an environment where diseases, including cancer, cannot live.

## Thirty-five Percent Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide

The peroxide that should be used for therapeutic purposes is 35 percent food grade hydrogen peroxide. The types of peroxide readily available at drug stores are not designed for this use and have additives that make it more dangerous. Thirty-five percent food grade hydrogen peroxide can easily be found online at a relatively inexpensive price.

## Hydrogen Peroxide Baths

To use peroxide for a bath, make a three percent solution from the 35 percent solution. Pour 1 ounce of the 35 percent peroxide into 11 ounces of distilled water. This will yield 12 ounces of a three percent hydrogen peroxide solution. Add between 16 to 128 total ounces of the three percent solution to a bathtub of warm water. Start with 16 ounces of the solution and add an additional eight ounces per day to the bath, up to 128 total ounces. After you have reached 128 ounces, taper back down to 16, and then cease treatment, if you wish. It is a good idea to do this in the morning or afternoon, but not at night because you may have trouble sleeping.

## How it Works

A 20 to 25 minute hydrogen peroxide bath allows the body to absorb the peroxide through the skin. The warm water relaxes the body and opens the pores allowing the the body to absorb the peroxide. Once the peroxide gets into the blood stream, it loses one of its oxygen molecules through a chemical reaction and becomes water and free oxygen. The free oxygen can then bind to the red blood cells and carried wherever it's needed.
