A Progress Report - Revised Third Edition ECHO Water + Oxygen OXYGEN THERAPY Pass on the Good Word - to your Neighbour, Friend, or Relative! The Information contained in this booklet is for educational purpose- only. It is not to be considered medical advice diagnostic or prescriptive. See your doctor for qualified health care. 41 million Americans have serious arthritis, 20 million have herpes, 13 million have serious diabetes. This is 74 million or over one third of our population and we have only covered three diseases. At the beginning of this century we were one of the healthiest nations on this earth. We are the wealthiest, but far from being the healthiest. Some of the reasons for this are that our air, water and food are not what they were 75 to 100 years ago. We have polluted the air, we need additives for our water to make it safe to drink, and our food has lost its trace elements, long leached from our soils. We now must use supplements to help supply what has been lost. One of these supplements is oxygen. Oxygen is the most abundant element on earth. It comprises 45.6% of the earth's crust and 20.95% of dry air. It is one of the most vital and necessary elements to support life. Oxygen is so vital to good health that hospitals have it installed in patient's rooms. All rescue units, ambulances and life support systems are equipped with it. Without oxygen you can live only a few minutes. Through his research efforts, Dr. Edward Carl Rosenow (1875 - 1966) worked out the causes of some 35 diseases and was the author of 450 medical papers. Dr. Rosenow developed a technique by which micro organisms in the body could possibly be eliminated or controlled. The hydrogen peroxide program is a method of taking oxygen into the body to possibly eliminate or control these micro organisms. His basic tenet was that we live in an ocean of micro organisms. The body is like a world. In the world of the body are millions of micro organisms--little creatures each seeking their own habitat, food and environment. Just as animals in our world live in different climates, eat different foods, multiply, prey upon others, infect, go through metamorphosis, pollute streams, so these little micro organisms invade our bodies and seek out their proper habitats. These micro organisms do the following: --gnaw away at the joints (inflammatory arthritis) --Give off calcium waste matter that cements bones together --lodge in liver and kidneys, and with their bite form stones --live in the very lining of the arteries and leave their hard deposit on the walls of the arteries --cling to the lining in the nervous system and short- circuit some of the electronics in the central computer of the brain --attack cells and enter them, building cocoons around the stricken cell thus cutting off the blood supply and causing the cell to lose its specific function, so that it can only live and multiply into cancerous tumours. One of the simplest sources of this healing oxygen is in hydrogen peroxide. Hydrogen peroxide traces back through to the origin of time. It was first reported by the French chemist Louis-Jacques Thenard in 1818, who named it eau oxygenee. It is very natural; it is found in traces as rain and snow (McGraw-Hill Encyclopaedia of Science & Technology 5th Edition, p. 747). In 1863 Meissner proved its presence in the rain water collected during thunderstorms and this has been corroborated by others (Journal of the American Medical Association, Vol. X, No. 9, March 3, 1888). It gets into our rain and snow from the ozone layer high in the earth's atmosphere. It can also be created in the atmosphere when ultraviolet light strikes oxygen in the presence of moisture. Ozone (03) is free oxygen (02) plus an extra atom of oxygen. This extra atom of oxygen splits off very easily, and does so when it comes in contact with water. Water (H20) now becomes hydrogen peroxide (H202). Compared to chlorine, bacterial and viral disinfection with ozone is up to 5000 times more rapid. (McGraw-Hill Encyclopaedia of Science & Technology 5th Edition, P. 728) This is why many cities in Europe use ozone and hydrogen peroxide in their drinking waters. Many brands of bottled water that you buy in this country have been ozonated for your protection. Hydrogen peroxide is found in fresh fruits and vegetables, some of it comes from rain and some of it is manufactured in the photosynthesis process. (Gen. Biochemistry Furton & Sommonds p.338). If we were to eat fresh fruits and vegetables in their raw state, we would get this healing oxygen into our bodies. We tested human mother's milk and found it contains a good amount of natural hydrogen peroxide. Colostrums milk (first milk secreted after birth) has an even stronger hydrogen peroxide content. In testing natural spring waters, we found the spring water at Lourdes, France contained the strongest amount of hydrogen peroxide in its natural form. Since 1966 there have been over 6000 medical articles published about hydrogen peroxide. They do not all concern human beings and they are not all positive. An article on the internal injection of hydrogen peroxide appeared in The Lancet Feb. 21, 1920 (Influenzal Pneumonia: The Intravenous Injection of Hydrogen Peroxide pp. 432-433) An article on external use appeared in Hautarzt 12:425 Sept. 1961 Germany (On a Simple and Painless Treatment of Warts). In 1983 there were over 100 articles published on the subject of hydrogen peroxide. From 1880 to 1904 Charles Marchand published eighteen books on the subject of hydrogen peroxide and ozone. A listing of some of these articles appears later in this booklet. The complete articles can be found in medical libraries. The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in Federal Regulation Vol. 46 Number 6 Jan. 9, 1981, in effect gave the food industry a green light to use hydrogen peroxide in the "Aseptic" packaging process. The FDA has further ruled that hydrogen peroxide can be used in the processing of cheese and related cheese products (part 133), eggs and egg products (part 1 60), and as an antimicrobial agent in whey processing. They have also ruled it to be used in cleaning and healing mouth injuries. It is used in milk in 45 countries around the world. A good article on the "Aseptic" process for milk can be found in Trailer Life Nov. 1981 pp.51-52. NOTE: THE FDA HAS NOT APPROVED OF THE USE OF THE PURGING SCHEDULES OR OF THE DRINKING OF HYDROGEN PEROXIDE INTERNALLY. THOSE WHO CHOOSE TO DO SO, DO IT OF THEIR OWN VOLITION. THE INFORMATION IS PASSED ALONG FOR RESEARCH AND EDUCATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY AND THOSE WHO CHOOSE TO USE IT ASSUME ALL RESPONSIBILITY PERSONALLY. Two purging schedules follow for the experimental oral hydrogen peroxide program. The first one uses 6% food grade hydrogen peroxide and the second uses 3%. With either program, a .5% SOLUTION SHOULD NOT BE EXCEEDED. STRONG SOLUTIONS OF HYDROGEN PEROXIDE MAY CAUSE INJURY, ILLNESS OR MAY EVEN BE FATAL. DO NOT USE THE HYDROGEN PEROXIDE PROGRAM IF YOU HAVE AN ORGAN TRANSPLANT AS IT MAY POSSIBLY CAUSE REJECTION. Purging Schedule for 6% Food Grade H202 Tolerance levels seem to vary for persons using hydrogen peroxide, but these guidelines seem generally satisfactory. The 6% food grade hydrogen peroxide concentrate MUST BE DILUTED in water or other liquid before using. It is preferable to use distilled water for this dilution. Drink this mixture on an empty stomach. It is usually taken ONE HOUR BEFORE OR THREE HOURS AFTER A MEAL. Some prefer to take the solution just before going to bed, but you can work out your own system. ADD QUANTITIES SHOWN TO 5 - 8 OUNCES DISTILLED OR SPRING WATER, MILK, VEGETABLE OR FRUIT JUICES; no sugar, alcoholic or carbonated-type beverages are to be used, nor fresh pressed carrot juice or bananas that have been blended. There is an enzyme in fresh pressed carrot juice and/or bananas that breaks down H202 into water and oxygen. (You may have bananas or fresh pressed carrot juice at other times of the day.) When reaching higher levels of hydrogen peroxide, more water or juice may be taken as needed. DO NOT INGEST THE PURE 6% FOOD GRADE HYDROGEN PEROXIDE. 1st day.................................. 1/2 teaspoon 2nd day.................................. 1 teaspoon 3rd day..................................1 1/2 teaspoons 4th day.................................. 2 teaspoons 5th day..................................2 1/2 teaspoons 6th through 12th day.........2 teaspoons (3 times daily) 13th through 19th day..........2 teaspoons (twice daily) 20th through 27th day.................2 teaspoon per day Then, two teaspoons every other day for a week. Then cut back to 1 teaspoon every other day; or else take about 1/2 teaspoon daily as may be necessary. ALWAYS judge your own particular requirements. CAUTION: If any strong solution of hydrogen peroxide concentrate is spilled on the skin, flush the skin immediately with water. Fingertips may whiten temporarily. KEEP HYDROGEN PEROXIDE CONCENTRATE OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN AT ALL TIMES. DO NOT TRANSFER HYDROGEN PEROXIDE OF ANY STRENGTH TO AN IMPROPERLY LABELLED OR UNLABELED CONTAINER. Store 6% or 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide in a cool, dry place. Refrigeration is not necessary. Purging Schedule for 3% Food Grade H202 The simple schedule for mixing 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide is: one part of 3% solution of hydrogen peroxide with five parts of distilled water, giving you a .5% solution of hydrogen peroxide. Get a gallon of distilled water; take out 20 ounces of water and replace with 20 ounces of 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide and you will have the proper solution. Drink this mixture on an empty stomach. It is usually taken one hour before or three hours after a meal. One method of taking this mixture is to do so just before going to bed, but work out your own system. 1 oz. the 1st day /-5 ozs. 3 times a day for 7 days 2 ozs. the 2nd day / 5 ozs. 2 times a day for 7 days 3 ozs. the 3rd day / 5 ozs. once a day for 7 days 4 ozs the 4th day / 5 ozs once every other day for 7 days 5 ozs the 5th day / 5 ozs once every third day for 7 days THEN TRY---------/ 5 ozs once every fourth day for 7 days If you find that the above amounts are more than you can tolerate, then back off on the amount of intake until you feel you are at a comfortable level. Then stay at that level until you get the results you are looking for. One thing to remember is that persistence pays off. If you condition is severe, stay on 5 ounces of the .5% solution twice a day as long as you think it is necessary. If you are on supplements, treat them the same as food, taking hydrogen peroxide one hour before or three hours after food or supplements. If you are on a medication, consult your doctor. If you have a weak stomach, try 1 oz. of 3% hydrogen peroxide in 5 ozs. of milk, vegetable or fruit juice, non- alcoholic on non-carbonated beverage. Deep breathing of fresh air, along with exercise, is very important. Hydrogen peroxide is sold in drug stores and grocery stores as an antiseptic; it has been around for many years. It is called Oxygen Water in many countries around the world. In Spain it is called Agua Oxigenada, in Italy Acqua Ossigenata, in France Eau Oxigenee. In the United States we call it Hydrogen Peroxide (H202). Alternate Methods For those who have a tolerance problem with hydrogen peroxide, there are aloe vera mixtures available in several flavours that are quite palatable. These mixtures are taken undiluted, according to directions on the label. Two such products are Super Oxy Plus Aloe Vera Tonic or Oxy Toddy. Many distributors stock these products or they may ordered from R.E.A.C.H., 4096 Bonita Road, Bonita, CA 91902., (619) 475-2874. Intravenous Injections Hydrogen peroxide is now being used intravenously and intra-arterially by a number of doctors in both the United States and in many foreign countries. The International Bio-Oxidative Medicine Foundation is supporting clinical research in this area. For doctor referrals, you may write or call: P.O. Box 13205, Oklahoma City, OK 73113, (405) 478-4266. (The usual donation is $5.00 if there is a doctor in your area.) Dr. Kurt Donsbach uses hydrogen peroxide intravenously at Hospital Santa Monica at Rosarito Beach, Mexico. For information about the clinic and modalities used, call (619) 428-1147 or 1-800-359-6547. **NOTE: Possible reactions to hydrogen peroxide Remember that peroxide is just water molecules with extra oxygen atoms. When the H202 comes in contact with the virus and streptococcus (i) that cause the different diseases, it will liberate the free oxygen that kills germs by oxidation -- thus causing a "retracting" or "healing crisis". Therefore, you may experience one or a few of the following symptoms (depending on previous diseases): skin eruptions, nausea, sleepiness, unusual fatigue, diarrhoea, colds, (head or chest), infections, boils, and other previous illnesses. One woman experienced sudden severe nose bleeding with the elimination of two large blood clots from her right nostril. She can now breath through the nostril for the first time in years! Another person had bleeding from the mouth when he spit up huge amounts of mucous. Another had rectal bleeding as his haemorrhoids reduced. These are natural cleansing processes, and they will be of short duration as you continue the program. Above all, don't give up even when you decide to decrease the dosage. There are hundreds of published articles against the use of hydrogen peroxide as a therapeutic agent because this cleansing process was misinterpreted as being "BAD". It is the necessary price for recovery of your precious health. Don't be misled by a "Healing Crisis"!! Rather, be GRATEFUL FOR IT! "This information was contributed by Rodney E. Alsop, D.Ph.M., Ph.D. He also contributed two other portions of this booklet: Grades of Hydrogen Peroxide and Methods of Producing Hydrogen Peroxide. - Thank you, Rodney. DILUTION'S To make a 6% solution, mix 5 1/2 ounces of distilled water with 1 ounce of 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide. To make a 3% solution, mix 11 ounces of distilled water with 1 ounce of 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide. Unfortunately, even though God has provided an abundance of healing oxygen in many of the raw foods we eat, we lack an adequate supply because of the way we process food. Heat destroys or neutralizes hydrogen peroxide, lessening the benefits to our body. This is why many people are now turning to hydrogen peroxide to supplement this vital oxygen. ECHO stands for education concerns for hydrogen peroxide. For about the past 20 years, Father Richard Willhelm has continued the research and strived to make these findings available to the public. In February 1982, Walter O. Grotz, who had experienced remarkable results on the program, joined Father Willhelm in his endeavour. Since then many more have joined.

Avoid any contact with eyes. Vegetable soak: Add 1/4 cup 3% H202 to a full sink of cold water. Soak light skinned (light lettuce) 20 minutes, thicker skinned (like cucumbers) 30 minutes. Drain, dry and refrigerate. Prolongs freshness. If time is a problem, spray vegetables (and fruits) with a solution of 3%. Let stand for a few minutes, rinse and dry. Leftover tossed salad: Spray with a solution of 1/2 cup water and 1 Tbsp. 5%. Drain, cover and refrigerate. To Freshen Kitchen: Keep a spray bottle of 3% (straight) in the kitchen. Use it to wipe off counter tops and appliances. It disinfects and gives the kitchen a fresh smell. Works great inside the refrigerator and kids' school lunch boxes. Marinade: Place meat, fish or poultry in a casserole (avoid using aluminium pans). Cover with a dilute solution of equal parts of water and 3% H202. Place loosely covered in refrigerator for 1/2 hour. Rinse and cook. In the Dishwasher: Add 2 oz. of 3% hydrogen peroxide to your regular washing formula. Sprouting Seeds: Add 1 ounce 3% hydrogen peroxide to 1 pint of water and soak the seeds overnight. Add the same amount of hydrogen peroxide each time you rinse the seeds. House and garden plants: Put 1 oz 3% hydrogen peroxide in 1 quart of water. Water or mist plants with this solution. Insecticide Spray: Mix 8 ounces black strap molasses or white sugar, and 8 ounces 3% hydrogen peroxide in 1 gallon of water. Humidifiers/Steamers: Use 1 pint 3% hydrogen peroxide to 1 gallon of water. Washing/Laundry: Add 8 ounces of 3% to your wash in place of bleaches. Shower: Keep a spray bottle of 3% hydrogen peroxide in the shower. Spray your body after washing avoiding the eyes, eyebrows and hair. Facial: Use 3% on a cotton ball as a facial freshener after washing. Keep away from eyebrows. Rejuvenating Detoxifying bath: Use about 2 quarts 3% hydrogen peroxide to a tub of warm water. Soak at least 1/2 hour, adding hot water as needed to maintain a comfortable water temperature. Foot Soak: Soak feet in warmed 3% H202 until condition is improved. Mouthwash: Use 3% H202. Add a dash of liquid chlorophyll for flavouring if desired. Toothpaste: Use baking soda and add enough 3% H202 to make a paste. Or, just dip your brush in 3% H202 and brush. Douche: Add 6 tablespoons of 3% H202 to a quart of warm distilled water. Colonic or Enema: For a colonic, add 1 cup (8 ozs.) 3% H202 to 5 gallons warm water. (Do not exceed this amount) For an enema, add 1 tablespoon of 3% H202 to a quart of warm distilled water. Pets: For small animals (dogs & cats) use 1 oz. 3% H202 to 1 quart of water. SAFETY AND STORAGE TIPS FOR HYDROGEN PEROXIDE Accidents can occur with hydrogen peroxide concentrate when safety precautions are not taken and directions are not followed. For this reason, we want to stress some safety and storage tips. Read them carefully and review the way you handle the concentrate to determine whether changes must be made with your handling procedure. 1. Keep hydrogen peroxide concentrate out of the reach of children. 2. Never transfer the concentrate into unlabeled or improperly labelled containers. 3. If hydrogen peroxide concentrate is accidentally spilled on the skin, flush the area immediately with running water. 4. If hydrogen peroxide concentrate is accidentally ingested, drink large amounts of water to dilute. Stay upright and contact your doctor. It could be toxic or fatal if swallowed at full strength. 5. For spillage of hydrogen peroxide concentrate, dispose of according to Federal, State and local regulations. Flush the spill area with water. Do not return the spilled material to the original container. Prevent undiluted hydrogen peroxide from entering into the sewage system. Report spills in compliance with Federal, State or local regulations. Large quantities, such as drums, should be stored in a cool, dry area. When concentrations of hydrogen peroxide come in contact with organic materials, this may form explosive mixtures (spontaneous combustion). Once a sterile spigot has been inserted into the drug, it should remain in place. Repeated insertions may cause lint or dust to enter, which could cause contamination of the product. After filling properly labelled containers, put a child-proof cap on and cover the spigot with a plastic dust protector. Small quantities of 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide should be stored in the freezer over-wrapped with black plastic and labelled as to contents. Thirty-five percent food grade hydrogen peroxide will not freeze unless the temperature is 33 degrees below zero. Low concentrations, such as 3% or 6% would freeze, so freezer storage is not recommended. Store properly labelled containers in a cool, dry place out of the reach of children.
