Can you take hydrogen peroxide internally?


I have a question regarding the use of hydrogen peroxide internally. I’m not finding much information on the subject and I have a family member who’s looking into it based on some (limited) online research. Thoughts and feedback would be appreciated.

Answer:

Yikes! Hydrogen peroxide should never be taken internally. It can cause irritation of the gastrointestinal tract with nausea, vomiting, and foaming at the mouth (the foam may obstruct the respiratory tract or result in pulmonary aspiration). Within minutes of ingestion, confusion, coma, convulsions, cyanosis and cardiorespiratory arrest may ensue if the concentration is high enough. Oxygen gas embolism in the brain may cause a stroke even after just a few sips. Most problems occur at concentrations >10%, but even dilute solutions can be toxic. If your family member wants to oxygenate their blood they should try exercising!

Instead of consuming pro-oxidants like hydrogen peroxide, I recommend eating anti-oxidant rich foods. See, for example:

    I’ve never drank Hydrogen P internally, but i do gargle with it?? Hope that’s not bad?
    I haven’t had a sore throat since doing it.

      Same here!

        From where I should get Hydrogen Peroxide in India

  • Truth

    Ingesting hydrogen peroxide will only give those side effects when taken improperly. Hydrogen peroxide can be ingested and should be researched and discovered for its proper uses….because it is amazing for the immune system, helping to rid teh body of all sorts of diseases, ailments,etc…including cancer, HIV, ETC. Sorry doctor, but maybe you should be our own research and not believe everything that you were taught in med school, because medical research is funded by pharmaceutical companies who dont want people healthy, in turn for themselves to be
    broke!

    • Marianne

      Truth-I think Dr Greger has proven himself to be a medical graduate who thinks outside the square. I know about hydrogen peroxide claims and even if 100% correct, there are far more safer alternatives …right here on this website in fact!

        HI MArianne! To kill herpes virus, I was drinking food grade hydrogen peroxyde in
        water, according to the hydrogen peroxyde protocol.On the 12th day, I
        was drinking 12 drops 3 times a day. I had the last drink before bed
        time. I am a healthy, mostly raw organic food woman aged of 40 who don’t
        believe in Illuminati medecine and vaccines. I exercise moderately
        every week(run and bike). Well an hour after I fell asleep I was woken
        up by a scary fast heart beat like around 240 a minute, I tought I was
        going to die!!! I called 911 and left in the ambulance!!! I think the
        H.P. did it!!! MAybe too much ”gas” or oxygen was created and went to
        my heart. Freakin scary, I am thankful to be alive still and appreciate
        every moundain moment believe me!!

      amen to that

    • CrazyMonkey702

      Hydrogen peroxide is safe as long as it’s food grade. The good doctor is wrong about it being harmful. I would recommend 3% Hydrogen peroxide.

      • fred

        There is no such thing as food grade hydrogen peroxide.

      • Jane and Tom

        No. You are wrong crazy Monkey. It is very dangerous. I burned my throat from gargling with a couple drops in a glass of water of 35% Food Grade. I have been through hell and back for four months now and always afraid when It will get inflamed again and swell up if I eat certain foods. I have to have a scope. I am warning people do not ingest Hydrogen Peroxide food grade at all. It puts holes in the stomach and esophagus. I want to try to warn people of the damage, so they don’t suffer like me.

        • CrazyMonkey CrazyMonkey

          You are telling me you burned your mouth with a couple of drops of hydrogen peroxide in a cup of water and it put holes in your stomach and damage you for life hahaha. You must be joking or it’s all in your head and you need to seek a therapist because you’re delusional.

        • Anonymous

          You realize that 35% is in no way food grade, right? That means that the ratio of peroxide to whatever else is in the liquid is 35%, so it’s 35% hydrogen peroxide. Food grade is waaay less more like 3%. No wonder your throat got burned.

          • John

            There is a very special protocol for fighting cancer with hydrogen peroxide, but DO NOT gargle with 35%. That’s supposed to be diluted to 1:11 at least for the protocol anyway. I have read about several cases where this protocol worked from reliable sources, but check with your doctor before trying something like this. Even then, be very careful how you take medicine! If taken wrong, it’s poison! A naturopathic doctor will be probably much more likely to know about it and help you. There have been movements to ban it because the medical establishment becomes upset when people eat vegetables, take the BUdwig protocol (cottage cheese and flax oil), or takes herbs or easily obtainable inexpensive ingredients to fight cancer. THey want you to pay tens of thousands of dollars for their chemo, radiation, and surgery, which you can’t do by yourself. Ask your naturopath.

          You did it wrong. I’ve been drinking diluted food grade h2o2 for weeks and haven’t burned anything and I don’t have any extra holes anywhere. Maybe if you followed directions you would have had better results.

        What are your qualifications to recommend? I have been looking into this as I have been ill for quite a few years with no idea of the cause I’ve been diagnosed with chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia because of symptoms but as we know there are no tests for those so it’s guess work on their part … without sounding harsh there are a lot of people recommending drinking diluted 3% for health and others say no! Don’t ingest it etc it wasn’t that many years ago people were raving about asbestos and all the wonderful things it could do only to find out now that it kills you…so when I read that people are saying yes it’s fine to ingest I kinda want to know what your qualifications are for suggesting that to people ?

        • CrazyMonkey CrazyMonkey

          People been doing it for years. You have to dilute it though with water.

          • John August

            Distilled water to be more precise

          • David Austin

            Why distilled water?

        • CrazyMonkey CrazyMonkey

          Maybe you should not worry about take hydrogen peroxide and just start changing your life style. Go plant base vegan. Don’t do it as a diet cause diets don’t last or work. Make it a life style choice and you will get healthy. I been though the same issues as you getting sick all the time and now I’m healthy.

          • Rebecca

            Is that just cutting out meat and dairy?

          • CrazyMonkey CrazyMonkey

            Correct. No meat or dairy. There are tons educational videos on vegan lifestyle on YouTube. This site nutritionfacts.org will give you plenty information to help you get started.

          • Rebecca

            Thank you for that I’ll definitely have a look :-)

      • David Austin

        Even at 3% it should be diluted down to less than 1% and then slowly sipped, especially the first time tried … Take tiny sips with waiting periods. Treat it like potential poision, then up your rate if tolerated well. Everybody is different. Don’t assume that if one person tolerates it and sees good benefits that so will you. You could be wrong on either point (tolerance or benefits).

        • Marc McDaniel

          You can purify drinking water with 12 drops of 35% food grade H2O2 per gallon of water. It kills viruses, bacteria, fungi, you name it. Personally, I drink a 22 oz glass of purified water (not purified by H2O2, but with my Berkey) with about 30 drops of the food grade 35% H2O2 three times a day. Started it after getting severe chest congestion which went on for about a month. Never went to the doctor, just drank 3 bottles of it a day and within two weeks, no more chest congestion. I decided to start drinking it after I read about a guy who drinks 75 drops with 16 oz of water twice a day and hasn’t even had as much as a cold in 5 years.

    • fred

      Good God! Hydrogen Peroxide will NOT cure aids!!!

      • Joseph Gonzales R.D.

        I don’t think that is what the above post states, but I agree with you that H202 should be avoided internally based on the information supplied by Dr. Greger.

    I have only used 1/8 of a teaspoon in a cup of water 3x a day to get rid of womanly yeast infections. Since then any time I feel a possible one coming on, I follow this regimen. It keeps it from developing. Thus, I have not had one for 15 years. (My doctor is the one that suggested it after over the counter and prescriptions did not work)

  • GWhiz

    I’ve been taking 3% “food grade” hydrogen peroxide in small amounts for the last few weeks. I spray one or two squirts on the back of my throat and then take a drink of water to wash it down. I do this once or twice a day. It completely cleared out my sinuses and I feel that it also helped clear up a fungal infection. The only side effects I have noticed have been positive. Of course, I would never take any that was stronger than the 3%… and only if it is food grade.

  • sepptorr

    Dr Greger, Do you have a response for the above claims from the posts about H2O2 consumption? Sure would like to hear something that clears this subject up. I have seen lots of claims from websites about H2O2 but they sure seem like scams but if so many people have drank this then why no postings from these people about the bad effects . Please comment!

    • Toxins

      Ask them to present studies so that we can review it! These things are mostly scams.

      • surethom

        As hydrogen peroxide can not be patented so no pharmersutical company will fund any research its like all non pharmersutical treatments no profit then no research.

        No studies then it is a scam is a typical medical responce, yes there are so so many scams on the net but also thousands of reviews on amazon , youtube and others that show them drinking it and no bad effects only good effects for some, some may be fake but all cannot. We need REAL research but this will never happen without funding.

        I have no idea if this works or not?

    • krily

      There are no posts from people like me who believe in peroxide because there are no bad affects. I have even poured 12% straight out of the bottle onto my skin purposely to experience a peroxide burn and this is what ensued. Yes, it burned, but not even real bad. It might have been worse if I plunged my whole hand into peroxide. But who would do that. Anyway, the burn is not like any other chemical that you would associate a burn with. So it burned and bubbled and made the skin white for a few minutes, but the burning does stop on its own once the peroxide has finished killing bacteria. This was a few short minutes and the skin then looked completely normal.
      Peroxide will not hurt you. Learn how to use it. It’s not hard. The 9% and 12% bottles have dilution ratios on the label. Go by that.

      • bruxe

        I have seen what full strength H2O2 can do to a person. I used to work in the semiconductor industry and they used H2O2 to clean silicon wafers between industrial processes. If you ever got so much as a drop on your skin- or anything else – it would turn that area completely white, like bleach. That is full strength.

      I will attest to this. I HAD A VERY BAD AFFECT TO GARGLING WITH A COUPLE OF DROPS IN AN EIGHT OUNCE GLASS OF WATER FROM 35% FOOD GRADE HYDROGEN PEROXIDE. PLEASE PEOPLE I AM WARNING YOU. DO NOT INJEST THIS STUFF. IT BURNS HOLES IN THE STOMACH AND ESOPHAGUS. I HAVE BEEN SUFFERING FOR FOUR MONTHS AND HOPE TO GOD IT HEALS IN TIME. I HAVE TO HAVE A SCOPE NOW AND SEE THE DAMAGE. I ALWAYS AM TERRIFIED EVERY SINGLE DAY WORRYING HOW MUCH IT WILL SWELL TODAY. I HAVE BEEN IN AND OUT OF THE EMERGENCY ROOM.

      • OKina Alford

        That’s strange because I’ve been drinking 25 drops of 35% food grade H2O2 in 8 oz of water for 3 weeks and have yet to have a bad experience. I actually put 50 drops in a 16 oz bottle of water and drank it all down in one sitting last night and I didn’t burn anything or get sick. So either you’re lying or you had something else in that water.

      • David Austin

        35% is so strong it will raise alarm bells for homeland security (used for making bombs). Fact. Putting that concentration anywhere on your body is like advertising your stupidity and carelessness to the whole world. If You had done any amount of research before trying that you would have been mortified that you even considered it.

        • chloe

          Not quiet true alot of research online says to only use 35% food grade peroxide a few drops in a glass of water

          • David Austin

            If so then that would be irresponsible research. An accidental extra drop or two would be a 33 to 66% too high of dosage, and drop precision requires close up evaluation… I would hope you’re using goggles (If not recommended by said research, another count against it, imho). As for raising alarm bells you bet it’s a monitored substance that is on homeland’s watch list. I’m not arguing whether it should or should not be … Just that it is.

  • Krily

    This advice is SO WRONG. I have been using peroxide for 15 years, both internally and externally. Peroxide does not hurt you. Yes, if you get 12% or higher, they should be diluted. Even the bottles at WalMart and the dollar stores should be diluted. But H202 is an instant cure for first symptoms of anything. When I stumbled upon this 15 years ago, it forever changed the way I treat myself for cold and flu and lots of other things.I never buy drugs. My thought to your warning of nausea, vomiting and foaming at the mouth (all three together) is that you have never learned how to use it. I would encourage you to learn. Dilution is the working element. Dilute, dilute, dilute. But let there be just enough to taste it going down. NEVER drink it full strength, which is how I believe you have learned of. Learn to use it. Peroxide is one of nature’s best friends. I am never without peroxide, not even when I go on vacation. You can catch a cold anywhere, anytime so it is always with me. One dose at first symptoms will kick your symptoms and you won’t get sick. Once dose is 1/8t in a cold liquid. I have used water, tea, orange juice and milk. But don’t use milk. Peroxide goes to killing bacteria in that and it is very uncomfortable in the stomach. They say distilled water is best, but I never got any. Never had to.
    Your response to this person who is honestly seeking an answer is very ill-informed. Please don’t do that to people. Get the truth yourself.

  • bob luhrs

    My ex-girlfriend is an NP, 25 years in urgent care, created and ran the Fast Track ER program at University of WA medical center for 12 years. She says yes H202 will kill germs. It will also kill defensive cells so that in the future infections are more likely. They only use it when they have no choice, and they cut the 3% solution down 4:1…and even then it is not benign. I know and respect opinions of doctors and researchers. But in an ER with urgent care on a daily basis, I’d not be arguing with those people who do this every single day and know what happens.

  • George

    The good doctor is reluctant to comment on this issue……wonder why……

  • Wedi yatok

    I’m glad H2O2 works for some. For me, I have been taking food grade 35% (greatly diluted in water) daily for a while, but still came down with a cold that lasted 2 weeks. I have seen no health benefits personally, and the almost nauseating feeling it gives me for a few minutes after consumption makes it not worth continuing. I believe when properly consumed it is at least harmless. If not, you’d see a lot of stories about people suffering the ill effects, because it is used by many.

    • Andy

      where I will get hydrogen peroxide in India… Can you please provide me the url ????

      • Wedi yatok

        I don’t know what online stores supply H2O2 to India. Shop around.

  • sidney49

    I have been ingesting food grade H2O2 for over 30 years. For the benefits of ingesting food grade H2O2 read “The One Minute Cure” which was and Amazon best seller.

  • A. Bruton

    There is a doctor on Utube (can’t think of his name) that says —
    “when you feel a cold might be coming on–pour a little Hydrogen Peroxide into your ears”. He says he doesn’t know why it works.
    Anyone tried this?

    • bruxe

      I just heard of that in some documentary … but they said a “dilute solution” but not the exact dilution. I was curious about it because, well certainly full-strength H2O2 would probably hurt a person, but a weak solution might kill germs or something.

    • gavin

      I do this every night – 3% food-grade h2o2, (the strength is VERY important) via a dripper – leave it in for a minute, then tilt your head & remove the excess with a piece of kitchen roll. The basic science is, most bugs & air-bourne viruses are thought to enter via the ear canal – the sugars present in earwax then enable the virus to multiply, take hold, & wham – you got the bug. The peroxide will kill the bad bacteria, & (usually) prevent the infection. Of course, it doesn’t work 100% of the time, but I’ve noticed enough benefit to continue with it.

  • Jack Falcon

    H202 has been taken medicinally for years, diluted for course maybe 2 or 3 drops for a tall glass of water

  • aloha

    Hydrogen Peroxide is used to induce vomiting in dogs who have swallowed something such as a sock, underwear, etc. only for items that will not obstruct breathing coming up. the vet can advise the dosage, probably just for large dogs, but it works in about 5 minutes.

  • Jack

    I found an even faster and more efficient way to get O2 into my blood stream! It’s far more effective than peroxide and gets a massive amount of oxygen into my blood compared to peroxide. And then the oxygen seems to travel all over my body and even deep into the tissues of my nose, throat, eyes, and stomach.

    Nobody has patented this procedure either and it’s been proven beyond doubt to have no harmful side effects. It uses the principle that 20% of the air around us is pure oxygen and usually freely available.

    It’s called “breathing”.

  • Wedi yatok

    After posting here that I stopped drinking diluted 35% food grade H2O2 because I didn’t notice any health benefit, I heard it could dissolve warts. I tried it on a hard mole-like thing on my collarbone. (4 drops on a q-tip, then dab the mole with the q-tip.) It 2 weeks it was mostly gone. Same with a few tags I had under my arms. And several persistent crusty patches on an arm. Still visible, but smoothed over and no longer annoying. It is an mild acid, so it stings a bit. But worth it.

  • bruxe

    I heard or someone who used a “dilute” solution of H2O2 to clean out their ears? Would that be safe, or crazy? If you look around you can find someone advocating for almost anything … and some of it could be dangerous. I think they said that H2O2 in their ears diluted would fight a cold? Is that even possible?

    • ariesdollface

      once, a couple of years ago, my best friend couldn’t hear out of her ears. when she told me, i was alarmed & scared and INSISTED we go to the ER. there, i witnessed an ER nurse use a diluted hydrogen peroxide/water mixture to clear her ears. she could immediately hear out of her ears. i don’t know ANYTHING about the other purported “cures” of hydrogen peroxide other than using it on cuts but i’m not so sure that something “dangerous” would be used by an emergency room professional.

  • Jean

    In the early 1980’s I tried the diluted food grade H202 for maybe 3 months. Saw no benefit and got to where I could not stomach the taste of it. Won’t even brush my teeth with it now. But do use it externally and for cleaning projects. It is a great disinfectant.

    I’m a fan of Dr. Greger. He is doing a marvelous job with this website, but nobody is right all of the time, and I think he missed this one.
    It is easy to study up on hydrogen peroxide on the internet. It is a very important issue and will take
    you a few hours – but if you are concerned about what you can do to protect
    yourself and your loved ones from the effects of air, water, food and drug
    pollution, it will be worth the effort.

    When you do, you will find, as I did, that those who are frightening people away from trying the 0.003% hydrogen peroxide dilution that has been taken internally by millions of people have allowed themselves to be influenced by twisted, scary half-truths.

    You will find that the ozone in the air is absorbed by rain, creating H2O2 that makes rainwater so
    healthy and delicious. You will find that every cell in the body – every single cell –
    is making hydrogen peroxide virtually all of the time, billions, even trillions
    of times every day. Search peroxisomes and catalase. You will find that H2O2 is
    vital in many normal physiological functions. You will find that the body is
    exquisitely designed to safely use H2O2.

    You will find that one has to be as careful with 29% H2O2 as one is with those toxic drugs and household cleaners in the house. It can kill you if you drink it straight. But diluted and “taken as directed”, there are many, many personal testimonials to its safety, as well as its health benefits – including reversal of cancer. I have mature, intelligent, careful friends who
    have been taking a few drops with water every day for years, for pennies, and are confident that they have reversed and cured cancer. I am taking 8-10 drops of pure 0.2% food grade H2O2 in a glass of filtered water 3 times daily, and working up to 25 drops per glass until I drop down to the recommended dose of daily rainwater.

    This naturally occurring, life-giving molecule is safe and inexpensive. Nobody is going to get rich off food-grade H2O2. Who profits by slamming it? Follow the money.

    Again, THANKS for all you do, Dr. Greger. No offense intended here.

    10-15 drops of 3% HP. In a cup of clean water Will boost your immune system! Doctors don’t want people to know about it because it would significantly reduce amount of people who are going to doctors. Drink it at least 3 times a day. Do it first thing in the morning on an empty stomach first, and later any time a day but not earlier then 1 hour after taking food. Be healthy people!

    I take food grade hydrogen peroxide I have done enemas with it and douches. They say not to enemas but i have and no issues as long as I dont put more than a fee drops in.High doses will cause problems but not low. I give it to my dog, cats and horse as well. The problem with MDs is they rarely have holistic training. And they make BIG money on pharmaceutical prescriptions. More people are hurt and die from prescription meds than natural medicine. You just need to use common sense and make sure its food grade as it has less impurities.

    Doctor, I saw you on Dr. Mercola’s site once, which is encouraging. I’m sure you do good work.

    However, your info on peroxide is alarmist and really off the deep-end. Food grade H2O2 is simply pure, without any of the chemical stabilizers the industry adds to the pharmaceutical stuff. They do this to stabilize it, but also so that you cannot take it internally as the chemicals are highly toxic. Food grade comes in 35% dilution, but must be greatly diluted before internal use! A cup of 35% strength will kill a child, and it looks exactly like water so be careful. But one drop of 35% is roughly 12 drops of 3%, and you can maybe take 2-3 drops of the 35% in a cup of water before it starts becoming quite unpleasant. Maybe start with one or two drops of 35%, or 10-20 drops of 3% “Food Grade” peroxide.

    Peroxide is very healthy for you! It is produced in the atmosphere in small amounts, and comes down with rain. MOt of it never reaches the ground anymore b/c of all the pollution in the air, which reacts with it. A good rain used to be more refreshing when the H2O2 content reached the soil and cleaned it. Flowing mountain streams have higher amounts of it as well, and in very small amounts it helps keep water very clean and also good tasting. It is very good in cleaning out harmful microbes in the system, and on top of this, after about 40 minutes in circulation in the blood, an enzyme in the body breaks it down and you end up getting a good shot of oxygen in the body as well, which of course is extremely beneficial to us. I’m not talking about catalyze, which breaks it down instantly.

    The key is not taking it too concentrated, just enough. A little bit goes a looong way. It’s also great for disinfecting cisterns and pools, and is much safer than highly reactive chlorine, which makes some very toxic compounds. Smart municipalities and cities also use peroxide to purify their water sources, but most are still owned by the chemical industry and use toxic fluorine and chlorine compounds. The body makes peroxide, and has all the necessary hardware and software (control mechanisms) to produce, utilize and neutralize peroxide when appropriate. H2O2 is also vital for many other metabolic functions, including SOD, etc. Peroxide is actually one of the first lines of defense by our immune system when pathogens attack, and activated microphages blast enemies with it as well. “Thetruthabouthydrogenperoxide” is a great PDF booklet about this wonder product.

    Doctor, don’t believe everything you’ve been taught in med school. The pharma industry has it’s tentacles everywhere and are relentless and evil in their attempts to silence any helpful information on materials that compete with their drug cartel. For example, for many years the fisheries industry has used peroxide to keep their fish eggs, tanks and populations healthy and microbe free. A while ago, the FDA, the fear and death administration, told these fisheries they can no longer use Peroxide, which is GRAS, but they must now take the “FDA Approved” product, which is a product called “Peroxaid.” It’s basically 95% peroxide with some stabilizers and chemicals added in, but now they have a patent on the product and of course the FDA is in on the racket making their money also. Sick and corrupt. If you want to help yourself and others, keep and open mind doc and do some more learning, and esp. read that PDF by the truth about hydrogen peroxide.

    Oh, and forgot to say, ideally IV is best delivery system of H2O2, but this must be done by a professional. If you try this at home and don’t know what you’re doing you could have big problems, embolisms, etc. Taking it orally is a distant second best, as you can only internalize so much, but it can still help if you dilute it enough and don’t overdo it. That is the key: moderation. Only *tiny* amounts at a time.

      Been using it to clean my teeth for over 30 years after a dentist suggested it. Why has the Dr not commented?

    Kind of like asking is aspirin can be taken internally… If one consumed as much fully saturated dissolved aspirin as this doctor presumed one might take h2o2 then it would kill you. I don’t know of any h2o2 protocol that recommends dosages even 1/10th of what is discussed in this article. I’m not saying anyone should take h2o2 intetnally, but if anyone is to give it either a positive or negative critique then they should be discussing the most typical protocols recommended by those who are the established experts in the field, and they should backup their claims with peer reviewed articles published in journals respected in the scientific community.

    Personal experience: I’ve been using food grade hydrogen Peroxide for over 10 years. I put 5 drops in a 16oz bottle of water, then add a little lemon juice for better flavor. Since I have been doing this, I have not had a cold in years. I also have good check ups with no skin cancers. Just saying what works for me. Sure you can abuse it as with anything, but diluted and stored properly, I have had no adverse side effects.

  • John

    I tried the formula but didnt understand correctly so I end up using the 3% HP not food grade, (8) eye drops to 18oz of clean water and day later I’m feeling the effects, throat is burning and my stomach has been spinning since yesterday afternoon. Did I harm myself, should I be concerned?

  • naz

    Do you know that there is a great Herbal doctor who can cure HIV AID. Well my main reason why i am writing this right now is to inform the whole world about the great deeds, DR. otaru did for me. My name is Ruiz Mary, I was diagnosed of HIV in the year 2012 ever since then I was taking my medications, until I met the great spell caster, though I never believed in spell. I saw many testimonies on how he cured deadly diseases. I contacted him through his phone number. I called him, he asked me to send him my email, which I did. He told me that his god’s required some items in which he will use in casting a curing spell on me. I don’t know where to find the items he required. He told me that the only alternative is for me to send him the money, and then he can help me to get the items and herbs for my treatment. I promised myself to do anything to get cured. I sent him the money. He bought the items and casted a curing spell on me and also sent me a herbal potion, I used it as He instructed. 7 days later he asked me to go for check up, when I did the check up I was tested HIV Negative. I am so happy, I can not stop thanking Him, if you passing through hardship and you need a way out, kindly contact his mobile number+2348107345943 or email [email protected]

    3% of Hydrogen P -food grade .-on 200 ml water 1 2 drops a day increase to 5 drops a day – BUT , if you have very spisy food and have problem with stomach – about this you would never know – so better not to do this .

  • zena

    and it should be on empty stomach but better not to do as is very risky / not for every one
