Hydrogen Peroxide for Thrush

Posted by Kathleen on 11/11/2007

Hello Ted, Your recipe for the H2O2 gargle for thrush calls for only 1/4 teaspoon to be gargled. I assume this is the measuring spoon used in U.S. measurements? I ask, because it is such a tiny amount that there is hardly enough to gargle. By my calculations, this would be just over one ml.. Is this correct? Thank you for all the great health information you give us at Earth Clinic. Sincerely, Kathleen

Kathleen:

A 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda is added to about 1/2 glass of water in H2O2 1% is used as a gargle and the solution is weak. However, if 1/4 teaspoon is used and not to be used as a gargle, is to take 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water, taken internally twice a day, once in the morning and once in the evening. Once the body has sufficiently alkalinity, generally the growth of thrush would be less.

If a stronger solution is desired, and it is to be gargled, a 1/2 tablespoon in 1/2 glass of 1% H2O2 might be better.

Actually, the best thrush remedy is 1/2 tablespoon of borax in a 1% H2O2 solution of 1/2 glass, stirred with a plastic spoon. The thrush is a fungus or yeast and a borax dissolved in H2O2 1% seems to work best. This is done about 3-5 times so that it can kill the thrush once in the morning.

Other remedies that is helpful for thrush includes 5 drops of lugol's or iodine tincture in 1/2 glass of water to be used as a gargle.

Finally a unique remedy against the thrush, that seems to work for me too is 1 tablespoon of pure xylitol dissolved in 1/2 glass of water and it is to be slipped slowly and taken internally so that the xylitol kills off the thrush.

A xylitol actually have some antifungal properties too, although in practice I also take 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water too, since the xylitol may cause the body to be slightly acidic and the baking soda will neutralize that.

Some selenium supplements 200 mcg taken once a day for five days out of a week also have some anti fungal properties too.

Regarding your suggestion:

"Finally a unique remedy against the thrush, that seems to work for me too is 1 tablespoon of pure xylitol dissolved in 1/2 glass of water and it is to be sipped slowly and taken internally so that the xylitol kills off the thrush.

Question: 1.) How long do you do this treatment for?

2). Does this fungus eventually shows back up?
