The most important physiologic or “natural” substance causing oxidation in the human body is hydrogen peroxide. Although it is naturally made in the body, hydrogen peroxide is considered a drug when used in Bio-Oxidative Therapy. When administered intravenously, an enzyme in the blood called catalase splits the hydrogen peroxide into oxygen and water. A small amount of hydrogen peroxide can supply large amounts of oxygen to the tissues. Remember how hydrogen peroxide foams when you put it on a wound or cut? The foam is oxygen being produced by the action of the enzyme catalase on the peroxide.

Hydrogen peroxide is administered through as a very weak concentration of medical grade peroxide added to a normal saline solution. The hydrogen peroxide is then slowly infused into a vein in the arm. It is painless except for a very small needle prick. Treatments are given daily for acute illnesses such as the flu, or weekly for all other chronic medical conditions

The intravenous use of hydrogen peroxide was first reported in the scientific literature in 1920. The use of hydrogen peroxide to generate oxygen in the body has been studied at many major medical research centers throughout the world, including the USA, Germany, England, Japan, Canada, Sweden, Russia and others. Between 50 and 100 new scientific articles are published each month about the chemical and biological effects of hydrogen peroxide. Dr. Charles H. Farr, first president of the American Board of ChelationTherapy and founder of the International Bio-Oxidative Medicine Foundation (IBOM), received a nomination for the Nobel Prize in Medicine in 1993 for his research with intravenous hydrogen peroxide. IBOM Foundation currently publishes a protocol for the safe and proper administration of intravenous hydrogen peroxide.
