Hydrogen Gas the New Universal Medicine

Published on March 2, 2023

Hydrogen is universal in space; it is the backbone of the physical universe and is now becoming a respectable revolutionary approach to medical treatment for a host of illnesses including cancer. There is no avoiding hydrogen in life, and it does offer hope for the future of mankind’s energy needs. Through the purchase of a hydrogen inhalation machine for as little as twenty-five hundred dollars one can have at-home medical and health equipment that ICU and emergency room doctors would be envious of.

Hydrogen gas is a wind that blows in intergalactic space and is a wind that blows one away from death’s door. Meaning if it is your last day on earth and a hydrogen-oxygen gas mixture is administered in ICU it might not be your last day after all.  If you are reasonably healthy or suffering from one of a host of diseases it can blow you back to youth and health meaning it is the ultimate anti-aging tool. Hydrogen, because of its safety and potential efficacy, is suitable for clinical and home use against many if not most diseases because of its antioxidative, anti-inflammatory, and antiapoptotic effects.

I tell people that having a hydrogen inhalation machine is like having an insurance policy. No matter what treatment approach is utilized for a person’s illness hydrogen will enhance and ensure treatments will be more successful. One can even sleep all night breathing hydrogen and oxygen gas so healing and the reversal of age can happen in one’s sleep.  All night long one can protect against cell damage by improving mitochondrial function.

Hydrogen has already been shown to play a role in the treatment and prevention of a variety of acute and chronic inflammatory diseases, such as acute pancreatitis, sepsis, respiratory disease, ischemia-reperfusion injury diseases, autoimmunity diseases, etc.

Hydrogen is a serious medicine and has been used for decades by deep sea divers not only to enable divers to survive 2000 feet deep in the ocean but is also a part of hydreliox, a breathing gas mixture of H2, helium, and oxygen (O2), which is used to prevent decompression sickness and nitrogen narcosis during very deep technical diving (Lanphier, 1972).

Though the idea of utilizing this electrochemically neutral and non-polar diatomic compound (H2) for the benefit of health has yet to be widely accepted by regulatory bodies worldwide one does not have to wait to receive the full benefits of hydrogen for health at home.

Therapeutic applications of H2 were first demonstrated in 1975, showing that hyperbaric H2 caused marked regression of tumors in mice with skin squamous carcinoma (Dole et al., 1975). Medical scientists have known for a while that hydrogen can protect deoxyribose nucleic acid (DNA) from oxidative damage.[i]

More recently in 2018 a in vivo study demonstrated that 6 weeks of hydrogen inhalation significantly inhibited tumor growth, as evidenced by decreased mean tumor volume (32.30%) and Ki67 expression (30.00%). Hydrogen treatment decreased the expression of CD34 (74.00%) demonstrating its anti-angiogenesis effects. The in vitro study showed that hydrogen treatment significantly inhibits cancer cell proliferation, invasion, migration, and colony formation. Conclusions: Molecular hydrogen may exert an anti-tumor role in ovarian cancer by suppressing the proliferation of CSCs-like cells and angiogenesis.

Hydrogen and Our Mitochondria

H2 improves mitochondrial dysfunction by preventing uncontrolled electron leakage from the electron transport chain and is predicted to have the potential ability to regenerate the dysfunction of cells.

When cell damage occurs, oxidative phosphorylation and electron transport in mitochondria are obstructed, and electrons are leaked to produce excess ROS (Reactive Oxygen Species). Hydrogen is the ultimate and smallest antioxidant that can penetrate the cell membrane and neutralize particles that damage the body. Cell damage happens for a variety of reasons including radiation and chemical exposures. The disequilibrium between ROS and the antioxidant system causes oxidative stress which is considered a common initial step for many pathological processes (Burton and Jauniaux, 2011). 

This is exactly where hydrogen shines. It reduces oxidative stress by turning the worst most damaging free radicals into water. This not only hydrates but is highly protective of cell environments.


Hydrogen quickly diffuses through the alveoli into the blood and circulates throughout the body during breathing; then, given the small relative molecular weight and lack of polarity, H2 can quickly penetrate the cell membrane and disperse to the cytoplasm, nucleus, and other organelles to play the biological role. Moreover, H2 passes through the blood–brain barrier although most antioxidant compounds cannot.


If one has the money to invest in a hydrogen inhalation machine it should be given the highest priority in one’s health or medical budget, especially if one has cancer. It is absurdly cheap when you compare it to paying 50,000 dollars a week for cancer injections that only promise to extend a patient’s life not cure them of cancer.

After Medicare abruptly stopped paying for his $50,000-a-week drug infusions required to treat his eye cancer, Dr. Paul Davis said he’s faced with either leaving his family a huge pile of debt or ending the treatments that help keep him alive. The manufacturer of the infusions markets the drug’s power to deliver “6-month improvement in median overall survival.” I am sure Dr. Davis does not know that there is a hydrogen machine that comes with goggles to directly treat the eyes.

Of course, some people would and do bankrupt their families with cancer and hospital care and would never ever think of employing hydrogen, oxygen, bicarbonates, iodine, chlorine dioxide, glutathione, selenium, PEMF, magnesium, superfoods, CO2 or even THC oil to treat their cancer. Used in combination with a multi-dimensional protocol one stands more than a better chance of not only extending one’s life but curing cancer.

Of course, hydrogen inhalation therapy is not only for cancer patients.

Molecular Hydrogen is an ideal antioxidant molecule for oxidative stress in the mitochondria due to its small size. It is one of the very few, if not only antioxidant molecules that can reach the inside of the mitochondria. H2 directly protects mitochondria that are exposed to reactive oxygen species. Preliminary clinical trials show that drinking hydrogen-dissolved water seems to improve the pathology of mitochondrial disorders. Drinking H2-water stimulates energy metabolism as measured by O2 consumption and CO2 production. All the hydrogen inhalation machines also make hydrogen water.

According to the National Cancer Institute considerable laboratory, evidence from chemical, cell culture, and animal studies indicates that antioxidants may slow or possibly prevent the development of cancer. Antioxidants are nutrients (vitamins and minerals) as well as enzymes (proteins in your body that assist in chemical reactions). They are believed to play a role in preventing the development of such chronic diseases as cancer, heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, Rheumatoid arthritis, and cataracts.
