Infection Prevention Alert!

If you feel like you are coming down with an infection, pour 4 quarts of 3% hydrogen peroxide (inexpensive at Costco) into a tub of water and soak in it for a half hour or more. Because the hydrogen peroxide is alkalinizing and high in oxygen, it helps your body fight any infection. I have also seen it reduce fevers. This can be done on a daily basis until you are well.

A few things to note regarding hydrogen peroxide:

Do not use water that is too hot as that will cause you to lose important minerals through sweating.

It is generally best not to do this too close to bed, as it can be energizing.
As with anything, a person can be allergic to hydrogen peroxide. If you start to feel bad, just get out.

For a child's bath, use a smaller amount of hydrogen peroxide, such as 1 or 2 quarts. You can often prevent a child from throwing up if you place them in a bath with hydrogen peroxide right away.
