Hydrogen Peroxide, a potent anti-viral agent

Tom E. Levy, M.D., J.D., is a prolific medical author and thinker, a long time friend of mine, an international expert on Vit C. He has published 13 medical books. He’s now working on a new book on hydrogen peroxide and its health (esp. anti-viral effects). The book is expected to be completed in a few months. But due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the cold winter we are in now (with flu and other viral infections), I want to share the overview and the major characteristics of H2O2, with his permission, with you and hope this can help you, your family and your friends.


Overview of Hydrogen Peroxide:

There are few molecules in the body, if any, that are singularly more important for optimal health than hydrogen peroxide (HP). It is essential for the ongoing defense against pathogens while also playing a pivotal role in the regulation of normal metabolism. HP is present throughout the body, continually generated both inside and outside of all cells (Boveris and Chance, 1973; Bao et al., 2009; Rice, 2011). HP is literally a naturally-generated antibiotic “designed by nature” to give the body its best chance at preventing an infection or at resolving an infection once contracted. It is also intimately involved in vital messaging and signaling functions between different cells as well as inside the cells themselves in order to sustain normal metabolic function. Furthermore, HP is present in the body in significant amounts, with some data indicating that as much as 5% of oxygen intake is utilized in the generation of HP (Arnaiz et al., 1999). An extremely simple molecule, HP presents no toxicity to the body except when arbitrarily administered in very high doses and concentrations, conditions that can literally make any substance toxic.

Nebulization with HP is truly an ideal therapy for dealing with a number of conditions, but especially acute respiratory viral infections. This therapy has five characteristics that no other treatments fully share, although there are a number of therapies that have two or three of these characteristics. Such an ideal therapy is:

  • Highly effective clinically
  • Completely nontoxic when used as recommended
  • Inexpensive, but optimally of inconsequential cost to even the poorest of patients
  • Readily available, and not requiring prescription
  • Very easy to administer and not requiring assistance.


Here is what I use for myself and my family to prevent Covid-19, flu and other viral infections, and for general health maintenance.

  • Vit C, 5,000 – 10,000 mg/day, in divided doses,
  • Vit D, 5,000 IU/day,
  • Zinc, 30-50 mg/day,
  • Mg, 500 mg/day,
  • Quercetin, 1,500 – 2,000 mg/day, in divided doses.
  • I also take our TotoCell Nutrition (our own formula with multivitamins, antioxidants and mitochondrial nutrients.
