WHY HYDROGEN PEROXIDE?
There are a number of commercial products who claim to contain more oxygen on a volumes percent basis than Hydrogen peroxide and consequently this has been interpreted as meaning they would somehow have more biological activity. There is a great deal of confusion about the difference between the term “Oxygenation and Oxidation” when applied to biochemical reactions. A product which contains more oxygen per molecule may or may not have any biological activity.
We reported (1) Intravenous Hydrogen Peroxide has an oxidative stimulatory effect when administered to man which appears to be independent of the amount of oxygen produced.
Hydrogen Peroxide is a very simple molecule produced by almost every cell in the body. This amazing molecule. Essential for life in both plant and animal, has been generally overlooked for it’s role in oxidative metabolism. Every chemist knows any reaction must have an opposite reaction to balance the equation. This applies equally to reactions in the test tube and in living cells. The world seems to have been caught up in the idea all biological oxidative is harmful because free radicals may be reproduced. Free-radicals can cause lipid per oxidation and membrane damage. Consequently many products, containing anti-oxidants, are being promoted to prevent per oxidation. Some researchers (2), including this author, feel per oxidation serves a useful purpose in the biochemical balance and may need stimulating at times instead of preventing.
Hydrogen Peroxide may increase oxygen tension in the tissue is of secondary importance. Any student of biochemistry knows the principal reaction of an oxidizer, such as Hydrogen peroxide, is to accept electrons in the RedOx reactions of the body and has nothing to do with ‘Oxygen or ‘Oxygenation’. It is true Hydrogen Peroxide increases the rate of oxidation in the body (3) but this is not because it produces oxygen but rather it stimulates oxidative enzymes.
Hydrogen peroxide is a naturally occurring, purposeful molecule in the body. It functions to aid membrane transport, acts as a hormonal messenger, regulates thermogensis(heat production) stimulates and regulates immune functions, regulates energy production and has many other important metabolic functions. These effects can occur without increasing the amount of oxygen. It is purposely used by the body to produce Hydroxyl Radicals to kill bacteria, virus, fungi, yeast and a number of parasites. This natural killing or protective system has nothing to do with increasing the amount of available Oxygen.
The amount of oxygen produced by a therapeutic infusion of Hydrogen Peroxide is very small. A single breath of fresh air contains many times more oxygen than found in either a therapeutic infusion or in a few air contains many times more oxygen than found in either a therapeutic infusion or in a few drops of 35% Food Grade hydrogen Peroxide taken orally.
Claims are being made that molecules containing Oxygen and Chlorine, Chloride or Chlorite ions will sterilize water, milk and almost anything to which they have been added. Chlorine is added to almost all public water supplies for the same purpose. The small amount of oxygen in these molecules may have little to do with sterilization process. There are more aerobic (requires oxygen) than anerobic(does not use oxygen) bacteria and increasing the oxygen supply may actually stimulate the growth of the aerobic bacteria. ‘Oxygen supply’ or Oxygenation’ is not a credible basis for the promotion of Chlorine containing products. Oxidation is the key word and not Oxygenation
Oxidation is the removal of an electron from a molecule which changes the electrical energy of the molecule into an oxidized state. The reaction takes place in many biochemical reactions in which OXYGEN is not involved. In oxidative reactions in which hydrogen peroxide is involved, oxygen is released when the Hydrogen Peroxide, acting as an oxidizer is reduced but it is the transfer to the electrons which is important and not the production of Oxygen.
Manufactures of products which claim to have the same effect as Hydrogen Peroxide may not have a good understanding of the biochemical role if Hydrogen peroxide in the body. Some of these products claim to provide more oxygen molecules than Hydrogen Peroxide and that may be true but I know of no scientific evidence to show this enhances oxidative metabolism. Cancer and many other degenerative diseases are thought to be the results of poor cellular oxidative processes. They are not the results of a reduced supply of oxygen. Persons with anemia or sever lung disease may have an oxygen deficit but do not necessarily have a greater incidence of Cancer or chronic diseases. The problem is not the delivery of oxygen to the cells but utilization by the cells. Hydrogen peroxide affects utilization or oxidation dramatically where as hyper-oxygenated or chlorinated molecules have not been shown to be necessary in the body to improve oxidative metabolism.

Dr. Douglas B. Cook, D.C.
Includes D.O.. physical, Spirometry, C-Rays, Hearing test, And Urinalysis
D.O.T. Physical: is a series of testing mandated by the Department of Transportation and a card issued after completion.
Spirometry: is a test that will measure the amount of air in your lungs and amount you can breathe out in one second. This is an ideal measure to determine how lungs are functioning.
X-rays: Anterior to Posterior and lateral lumbar for analysis of lower back to determine arthritis, previous injuries, deteriorating and thinning of disc and shows Doctor if risk for injury in particular segments of labor practices
Hearing Testing: Hearing exams accurate hearing may be essential, but measuring a baseline for hearing is necessary to determine if hearing loss may be occurring secondary to occupational exposure.
Urinalysis: is used to screen sugar, protein, blood, ketones, and specific gravity, which can be a major indicator for other health complications. It may be somewhat inconvenient to collect your urine for 24 hours, but the value of what can be about your body functions cannot be overemphasized. We double check all mineral and toxin levels in the body by measuring the urinary output of these substances. Also, many waste products, which we can directly measure in the urine, indicate what may be happening in the body. Much can be learned about the liver, kidneys, heart, spleen, brain, pancreas, and many other functions simply by measuring certain chemicals called metabolites in the urine. We also use 24 hour urine specimens to determine how much of a toxin or poison you may have stored up in your body tissues such as fat and bone. Specific directions on how to collect a 4 hour urine specimen, if ordered, will be given to you at your initial visit.

The world we live in is an amazing place. All at the same time we are inventing new technology that will forever change our world and we are rediscovering ancient technology that has been used in healing for centuries. These two practices are perfect examples of how we are combing the two.
Acupressure is the practice of acupuncture without needles. It has been practiced for at least 5000 years in China and is now practiced by many here in the United States. The body’s electrical system consists of 12 main and 2 control meridian systems. Each meridian contains 25-150 acupressure points and these meridians are associated with specific organs in the body. Through the manipulation of these points a wide variety of complaints can be addressed such as headaches, toothaches, eye problems, breathing problems, allergies, etc.
Pressure can be applied to these points, or needles, but how about something new. A device resembling a flashlight that is actually a low level bright laser. When this light is focused on an acupressure point it stimulates the body, provides energy to the parts of cells that are designed to heal and repair damage, and speeds up metabolism and the healing process. The entire treatment is non-invasive, does no damage to the tissues, and has no harmful side effects.
What is HCG?
- HCG stands for ‘Human Chorionic Gonadotropin’
- HCG is NOT a drug – It is a complex amino-peptide molecule, naturally occurring in very high levels during pregnancy, produced by the placenta.
- Hundreds of thousands of people have used this treatment to achieve fast and permanent weight loss
How Does It Work?
Dr. Simeons revealed that there are three types of body fat:
- Structural Fat – protects the internal organs and provides cushioning
- Normal Fat – available to the body for fuel
- Abnormal Fat – locked away and forgotten
- HCG, combined with a specific Low Calorie Diet (LCD), forces the body to burn up abnormal fat
- HCG triggers the diencephalon region of the brain to use abnormal fat for the body’s daily caloric needs.
- HCG is ‘muscle preserving.’ Therefore, the weight lost is all abnormal body fat!
Benefits of the HCG Protocol:
- Lose ½ to 2 pounds of FAT per day without exercise
- Lose up to 30 pounds in just 30 days
- Repeat the Protocol more than once to lose as much body fat as you need to
- Preserves muscle – the weight you lose is unwanted body fat
- Resets your metabolism to keep the weight off permanently
- Reduce or eliminate dependency on other medications
- Virtually 100% effective for everyone
- Completely safe – 5 decades of success!
- Never diet again! This is the cure for dieting!
- Our HCG is 100% HCG and comes from a highly regulated, FDA licensed USA pharmacy
- We offer ongoing, unlimited support from our nurses, weight loss coaches and doctors!
- Each person receives a personalized HCG Weight Loss Program Guide to allow you to lose at your maximum capacity per day!

Chiropractic is a natural method of health care that treats the causes of physical problems rather than just the symptoms. Chiropractic is based on a simple but powerful premise; With a healthy lifestyle and normally functioning nerves and spine, your body is able to heal itself. That’s because the spinal cord, which is protected by the spine, is the main pathway of your nervous system. It controls movement, feeling and function throughout your body. Research has shown that spinal manipulation is a safe and effective treatment for back pain, but chiropractic care for prevention of ear infections, sinus condition, sciatica, numbness in the hands and feet, bowel problems, headaches, asthma, and various other conditions. Chiropractic care is a safe and cost effective way to maintain your health, and results in fewer lost workdays with Workman’s compensation and Personal Injury conditions. In your health history, an orthopedic neurological examination, complete chiropractic evaluation and x-rays are used to properly diagnose your condition. Chiropractic care is a wonderful preventative and corrective health care for maintaining an active lifestyle for all ages and walks of life.
Spinal decompression is commonly thought to help with pain, however, chiropractic should always be tried first. Rehab along with physical therapy for pain and stability are commonly used in our clinic to the patients benefit and well being.
