The following text is taken from Dr. Ali's
Dysoxygenosis and Oxystatic therapies, the third
volume of The Principles and Practice of Integrative
Medicine. As is the case with all other information
on this website, it is being offered as educational
material, and is not a substitute for medical advice
based on full clinical evaluation of the case.
My colleagues at the Institute and I routinely prescribe
hydrogen peroxide foot soaks for patients with acute and
chronic lower leg edema caused by peripheral arterial
insufficiency, varicose veins, unresolved trauma,
low-grade chronic infectious and atopic processes. Based
on clinical results obtained in several hundred
patients, I now consider this therapy (described later
in this article) to be the safest and most effective
therapy for those conditions.
Water 20 parts
H2O2 3% 1 part
Salt One teaspoon
Time 20 minutes
The recommended choices of salt are as follow: (1) Epsom
salt; (2) sea salt; and (3) common table salt.
Stronger solutions of H2O2, such as one part of H2O2 and
10 parts of water or 1 part of H2O2 and 15 parts of
water may also be tried to test for variations in
efficacy for individual persons.
For chronic conditions, I generally prescribe foot soaks
on a four or five day a week basis. For subacute
conditions, daily soaks are recommended. Uncommonly, I
have prescribed such soaks on a twice daily basis.
There are several good brands of foot soak and foot
massage units available on the market. The one made by
Brookstone Company creates effective whirlpool
conditions and includes a "nodule" for effective
massaging of tender points on the feet or ankles.
with foot soaks so far
In search for better health and a better life,I
listen to Dr, Ali's program every week for the
past year and a half and have read one of his
books The Butterfly and Life Span
Nutrition which has been a very
enlightening book for me. Listening to the
program and the book have changed my perspective
on science, health, and my life forever. I don't
feel dumb down by Dr. Ali's teachings therefore,
I seek and desire to learn more about the
science of health. I have also discovered a new
passion. I try to do foot soaks at least once a
week but I am not very disciplined and don't
always follow through. I Like to do my own
pedicures instead of going to nail salons and
this is when I take the time to do my foot
soaks. I first follow Dr. Ali's directions and
then go about with the rest of my pedicure. I
have one of those foot soak machines that gives
you messages so I get a massage as well which is
nice. I also use my laptop while doing my foot
soaks as I am doing now or listen to so!
me music or do other things so it does not take
time away in any way. I don't exactly know what
the effects of the foot soaks are at this point
but neither have I been doing them for a long
time. As far as I know I don't have a disease
but I know I am not in a healthy state, so this
is part of the process of the changes I have
been making in my life.
Thank You for the program and all your efforts
to enlighten the public about medicine. I look
forward to reading other comments and learning
Hydrogen Peroxide Foot Soaks -
I had listened to dozens of Dr. Ali's radio
programs where hydrogen peroxide foot soaks had been recommended, and I
intended to do them, but I had not gotten around to actually doing it.
I started to notice a loss of sensation in the middle toes of both feet,
which I attributed to my recent surgery. So my intention to do those
foot soaks was renewed, but still I did not do them.
Then another symptom developed, on the calf of my right leg, the skin
became sensitive to cloth rubbing against the skin. It would feel like
thousands of tiny, sharp thorns – and it was dependent on the direction
of the cloth's motion and the pressure of contact. But when I would try
to feel the area with my hand, finger contact, skin to skin contact
could not replicate the symptom. Nor could I determine anything wrong
with the skin on my calf.
Then, symptom number three: This became the trigger issue so that I
followed through and started to do foot soaks. When I was standing in
the shower, I would feel like I was standing on a pebble, a small stone,
located under the ball of my right foot. If I examined the foot, I could
not feel anything unusual to my touch, but day by day it became more
uncomfortable to stand on a hard surface without wearing shoes or
slippers for cushioning.
So it had been weeks or months where I could identify three specific
symptoms involving my right leg, foot and toes. Finally, I did my first
foot soak. After 20 minutes I dried off and I experienced a noticeable
difference in the pebble and also in the numbness of the three middle
toes. However, I reserved judgment for the time being.
Next day, I increased the concentration of the hydrogen peroxide to
achieve a 10:1 ratio. I also did a Castor oil application on the calf
where I used an Ace bandage to keep the Castor oil cloth in place. On
this day, while I did the foot soak, with the Castor oil cloth applied,
I listened to Dr. Ali's radio program. The final summing up of the guest
interview included Dr. Ali asking, 'Is there anything else that you do
other than what we have discussed today?' And the guest replied, “Yes, I
do hydrogen peroxide foot soaks and I do Castor oil rubs!” There I was,
doing these same two techniques, and having them reinforced as a comment
on the radio. But did the therapy work? Yes, indeed.
I no longer feel any of the skin sensitivity. The numbness is present,
but very much reduced. The pebble is still present, but very much
reduced. Standing on a hard surface is no longer uncomfortable and the
shower no longer causes foot pain.
I always knew that the hydrogen peroxide foot soaks were not aimed at
treating the feet, but in my case that's where I needed the relief and
the foot soaks work for me.

soaks followed by castor rubs , in our experience, provide the best
results. When symptoms are not completely cleared, it is prudent to
see one's physician to consider other measures.
Ali and all of us at PeroxideClub will deeply appreciate follow-up
information from you.
Hydrogen Peroxide and Gum Damage
Does rinsing the mouth with H2O2 damage the gums? I have heard of
people claiming their gums receded from using this method.
Gum receding is caused by chronic infections. Peroxide in low
doses (1 part in twenty or so) done three to four times a day
reduces infections and inflammation. Neither our understanding nor
experience supports the contention that it causes gum receding.
We suggest that you consult your dentist for occult infections.
Dr. Ali and the PeroxideClub will deeply appreciate any relevant
references on the subject.
Just took a peroxide bath for the first time and I feel amazing. It
could be a psychological response but I really feel energized and
positive. What am I to expect in the next few days?
Welcome to Peroxide Club. Please do more baths and then tell us what
Toe fungus disappearing with h2o2
I've fungus on the nails of both big toes.
Although I've done h2o2 soaks for oxygen homeostasis, it's
completely gotten rid of the fungus on the left foot and has
improved the right big toe.
This didn't happen instantly; I've been at it for a couple years. I
figure the right fungus has been around for 40 years -- so if I get
rid of it in 10 years, I'll be doing well.
In the mean time oxygen homeosatsis is probably improving -- and it
is quite relaxing!
