Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation for COPD
Home Remedy Ingredients
- Hydrogen Peroxide - 3%
- Nasal Spray Bottle - emptied and cleaned
Using an emptied nasal spray bottle to inhale 3% hydrogen peroxide can open up airways and reduce COPD symptoms. (Be sure to first sterilize the spray bottle with boiling water.) Point the spray bottle into your mouth and toward the back of your throat. Then while inhaling sharply, pump 4-6 sprays of the hydrogen peroxide into throat and lungs. Repeat this inhalation method 4-6 times a day to reduce COPD symptoms.
[YEA] 08/01/2010: Joan from Brooklyn, New York: "I have emphysema. I get tested every 6 months to check the oxygen in my lungs.. Before I inhaled 3% peroxide my test prove my COPD was getting worse... But this time, after inhaling peroxide for three weeks my lungs have greatly improved. My pulmonologist was impressed at the technician's report that he tested me on difficult state of the art machines that measure the capacity of air in each test and he indeed reported much better than the previous three years.
I didn't tell her what I was doing. I was afraid she would try and stop me... Joan"

04/29/2010: Bharat from Faridabad, Haryana, India: "My father is suffering from COPD (chronic bronchitis and chronic emphysema), he is 57 years old and weighs around 40 kg.He was told about it 6 years back in 2004 untill when he was a chain smoker and left it then only.His fev1 count is only 17%.He used 35% food grade HP orally according to the given schedule but as soon as he reached 18 drops he felt some extreme symptoms like nausea, headache along with extreme weakness. His heart beat went high up-to 130 bpm and thus he just slacked off on it. He can barely walk and even find it difficult to eat food. I just wanted to ask what is the solution to such extreme symptoms because we don't want to quit so easily as there are not much options left after HP. Another query i had in my mind was that can anyone tell me that among either oral and inhalation method which one shows better and quick results?"Replies
04/30/2010: Alain from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada replies: "Answer to Bharat from Faridabad
With H2O2 we have to go slowly. If 18 drops is too much because of detox effect, just reduce it to a comfortable level. Than increase only after a while. You don't have to go as fast as a chart. Those charts are just guidelines.
The max recommended concentration for internal use is 0.5%. But even 1/10 of it can help. There are also other ways, like Baths with H2O2 and Epsom salt, or Bill Munro's inhalation method. People react differently to different concentration. When too much just reduce.
I posted something here with a lot of info.
Good Luck, Alain"
05/05/2010: Bharat from Faridabad, Haryana, India replies: "Thank you Alain.I really appreciate your effort .
Can you please tell me if is it possible that food grade Hydrogen Peroxide when taken orally reduces the spo2 level in blood.I am asking this because for the past 3 -4 days we are noticing a quick decrease in spo2 levels of my father even when oxygen is been taken externally.
Can it be assumed as a possible side effect of hydrogen peroxide since his fev1 count is only 17%?"
05/07/2010: Alain from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada replies: "Sorry, I cannot answer satisfactorily to your quesstion, because I am not at all familiar with the test you are talking about. But I did some quick searches and I have a few thoughts I would like to share with you.
First, you did not explained how the oxygen was taken externally. Was is peroxyde? And how? To get back to my previous post about dosages. Consider that 18 drops of FG h2o2 in a glass of water is not the same for a man of 40Kg as for a man of 80Kg or 120Kg. I suspect that your father is very weak and has digestion problems. So, maybe the 18 drops is even more demanding because of his weakness. H2O2 will create detox symptoms. So it is good to have something to improve the elimination of the liberated toxins. Those "toxins" are not from the h2o2 but from the body trying to get rid of them by being helped with the h2o2.
So, it might be better that food are any supplements be taken in smaller portions but more often. Something that might help greatly is the taking of pro-biotics on a daily basis. The more I read about pro-biotic bacteria for the colon the more I thing it is a vital element in helping in the recovery to any illness.
If you read EC pages on COPD and do a search on the web you will find that many have been helped by DMSO, and MSM. First, DMSO is very closed chemically to MSM. MSM can be obtained naturally from food. But can be easily destroyed by processing foods. MSM is better utilized by the body if taken with glucosamine sulfate and the chondroitin sulfate. MSM is a compound with sulfur as so are the two other sulfates. It has been shown that magnesium and magnesium sulfate can help asthma. Here we go again with a sulfate.
There is an easy and cheap way to get magnesium and sulfur in the form of sulfate. It is with Epsom salt (Magnesium sulfate). It is cheap and easy to buy in North America. I don't know about your part of the country. Two ways I know how to benefit from Epsom Salt (ES). Internally and from baths. Internally, a pinched of ES with meals or beverages. Coincidentally, a bath of ES can be enhanced and alkalizing with some h2o2. Here is a good link about such baths http://curezone.com/forums/fm.asp?i=1614147#i
Magnesium will also help the liver and kidneys in digesting proteins.
So, IMO you should have a multi-facet approach. Improvement of digestion, improvement of nutrition. Smaller portion but more frequent. Supplementation of MSM and or magnesium sulfate. Alkalizing baths. So much can be said about alkalizing.
I could have put a lot more in the form of supporting links and text extracts that would better help what I said above. Health can be restored but it will take time. A simple advice-Stop doing what makes us sick and start what makes us healthy.
Good luck, Alain"
05/07/2010: Vicki from New Plymouth, Taranaki, New Zealand replies: "Answer To Bharat From Faridabad. Hi from New Zealand. My father, who is 84 and has had emphysema for over 20 years, has been using some drops that I got for him from a large online supplement supplier in America. I can't say the name of the product on this site, but if you Google "Natural Microdose DNA" you will find info about the product. Dad uses ONE drop FOUR times a day. It isn't very expensive to buy. I think it works by thinning the mucus. Dad has been using it for about six weeks, and it's the first of the MANY "natural" remedies that we've tried that's helped him. Unfortunately he's still using all his puffers at this stage,but the drops have made a huge difference in his comfort level. He is able to go for walks outside and do light chores around the house, which he hasn't been able to do for ages. A big difference is in how long it takes him to recover from breathless episodes. Now, he gets his breath back almost immediately, instead of spending five minutes gasping for air. He's really happy about that!! He has had a peak flow meter for several years now and it has always been around 160 to 170 maximum, but now it averages about 190 and several times has been over 200, which has never happened before. So, while this hasn't been the miracle cure that I have been looking for, it has made a BIG difference to Dad's quality of life, and,at the moment, he is progressing instead of getting worse. Hopefully after he has been using the drops for several months he'll have made further progress. The only negative comment I have to make about the product is that it"s really difficult to get the drops out of the bottle - I have to put it in another bottle for Dad to use. Later on I'm also going to get him some black elderberry (there's an interesting post on here about that), but for now we're seeing how much he improves by using the drops alone. Kind Regards, Vicki."
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] 11/04/2009: Dixie from Lake City, Florida: "We need to keep this alive. I just found this site. I used 35%food grade HP for the schedule and it gave me more energy and then stupid me slacked off. I need to go back to it. Anyway I have COPD and lately I can barely walk to the bathroom because I can't breathe from long time smoking, so I have been reading this. I tried Bill's method of putting 3%HP in a pump bottle undiluted. Then I put 3mg in my nebulizer and it's kinda strong so guess you can cut it with water. Now I'm using 35% food grade 1 drop per 2oz distilled water and then putting 3mg in nebulizer. Cheaper then using an oxygen tank I think and did give me instant relief so guess I'm going to do this about every two hrs and see how it goes then I probably will start the schedule back over which is 3 drops three x's a day then increasing one drop every day until you get to 25 drops then you taper back down to only using 5 drops per week"
10/12/2009: Patricia from Flower Mound, Tx: "I have COPD that started to get worse when I moved into an apartment with a bad mold problem. My condition has deteriorated so much in the last year that I'm on oxygen 24/7, despite the fact that the physiology of my lung tissue hasn't changed, according to a CAT scan in 2003 and another one six years later. I suspect aspergillus, but could be wrong. My doctor did a blood test and says it was negative.
Anyway, I've tried about everything including a psychic naturopath, except the H2O2 therapy. I made an appointment with a Doctor in Fort Worth who does it intravenously. These treatments are expensive, and I have no insurance since my insurer rescinded my policy when I was in treatment for kidney cancer [which fortunately the recent CAT scan for my lung caught in an early stage], so I don't want to do this unless it will help or if there is a less expensive way to get the job done.
Has anyone taken the H2O2 by mouth. If so, how much, how often and how long before results. What were the results, if any. I'm a little afraid of the inhaled therapy because of the condition of my lungs already, or does anyone have advice for me? I'm a writer and a filmmaker and this oxygen thing is totally limiting my life."
10/15/2009: George from Bedford, Tx replies: "Jody from Tyler Tx has asked about doses and how to administer Hydrogen Peroxide. I can only tell about my experiance and cannot make any recomendations to anyone else. I use it primarily in am Sleep Apnia mask [PAP]. I use a solution strength of about 20%. That is 1/4 cup H2O2 to 1 cup of Distiled water. I breath it all night and if my lungs feel a little irritated I add another half cup water to make it about 15%.
I also use my nebulizer one or two times a day and there I use a 50% strength for about 3 min.
I believe I am killing all the bacteria, mold and fungus in my lungs as I don't have any more coughing or mucus since the first day I tried H2O2.
My Pulmanologist, Cardiologist, and my Gen Practioner are all amzazed at my improvment. None of them have ever heard of inhaling H2O2 before.
Good luck and let me know how you are doing at my email address"
[YEA] 08/04/2009: George from Bedford, Tx: "After living with COPD for several years my condition recently got worst to the point that I could barely manage simple chores like taking out the garbage. 2 wks ago my Pulmonary Doctor told me to use Oxygen 24/7 and to use an Albuterol inhaler twice a day and as needed for emergencies.
A few days later I had a serious incident from trying to climb some stairs,and almost passed out. The next day I had another incident from a minor exertion. I believe that an angel must have directed me to the earthclinic web site because I found the Hydrogen Peroxide treatment there. I am lucky enough to have a better system to administer the Hydrogen Peroxide than using asquirt bottle. I have a machine for my Sleep Apnea where I sleep with a mask that covers my nose and mouth and the machine provides positive air pressure to keep my wind pipe open. The machine also has a water tank of about 6 oz to keep the air moisturized.
I began my treatment with standard drug store 3% Hydrogen Peroxide, and dialuted it 50/50 with filtered water. I braethed that mixture for 8 hours that night and in the morning my lungs were clear. I didn't have the usual coughing fit to clear my lungs of mucus. The next night I used a 30% mixture instead of 50% and the results were just as good. I stopped using my hand held inhalers entierly. I again cut the dose down to 20% and still had the great results.
On the 10th day I awoke with so much energy that I changed the bed sheets, vacuumed the floor and cleaned the bath room. 2 weeks before this I could barely walk across the room.
The Peroxide treatment is a blessing to me."Replies
09/04/2009: Jody from Tyler, Tx replies: "George, I am happy that you've had such good results with the h202. I had previously tried Bill Munro's method of inhaling while spraying from a nasal spray bottle. I was already sick at the time and that method caused a deal of irritation in my lungs--perhaps the spray droplets were too large, don't know. Anyway, I ended up in hospital...I was also trying to nebulize some colloidal silver----desperate to get rid of the infection.
I'm currently at the stage of copd where one infection follows on the heels of the last one.
I'm a bit afraid to try the h202...do you think it would be ok to use some in my nebulizer and if so should I also have the albuterol in there or just h202 and water? I also have an oxygen concentrator with a moisturizer bottle on it...not sure of the measure..looks like about 8 0z...would that be a good way to inhale it?
Thanks for any help you might give me."
11/27/2009: Hobbit From The Shire from Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada replies: "I have a friend struggling with COPD. He is willing to give the H202 in the sleep apnea mask a try. I would appreciate if I could get an email address for George from Bedford, Tx in regards to the H202 he used. Was it Food Grade, or the regular. And would like to know how George is doing these days?

[YEA] 01/05/2011: Alvina from Eagle Creek, Oregon replies: "I put 1/4 c of 3% hydrogen peroxide in 1/2 gal. of distilled water in my vaperizor and inhale through the mouth 10 times twice a day and a few times through the nose also. I was in pretty bad shape a few months ago but now I'm able to do so much more without losing my ability to breath. For months I also took 1/4 t. of celery seed (a natural diaretic), tea made with 1/4 t. Lobelia, 1 t. of Mullein and 1 t. Hyssop twice a day. I also started taking MSM and cayanne pepper, which I still do. I don't need the tea anymore.

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] 09/15/2013: Caski3 from Uk: "COPD: I have had an extremely wheezy sounding lungs. My GP brother suggests this is the result of smoking which I ceased some 25 years ago. I have been a firm believer in MSM and tried various manufacturers without the success that other cases demostrate. Most importantly is to buy therapeutic level of supplements from a reputable company. Recently I purchased MSM powder 99.9% pure form J---B Lab. Taking: MSM half a teaspoon twice a day.
One dessert spoon of organic coconut oil twice daily. 5 Drops of Vit D, 1,000 mg Vit C powder in a magnesium base. I am going to add Magnesium Citrate and Vit A and start Vit E again and see where we go from here. The results to date have been much less wheezing and loads more energy."
05/30/2012: Harold from New Market, Maryland: "Hello Ted, I read your blog religiously because there is so much information that can be helpful now as well as in the future if needed. I was recently exposed to apparently a pretty large amount of Ozone when a house was being treated for mold and removal of unwanted odors. Later that evening I was barely able to breathe and drove myself to emergency room at 3:00am. I was diagnosed with Bronchospasm/COPD.
I am ready to try some of the remedies listed under COPD within your blog but I am wondering if there might be a specific protocol for Ozone induced Bronchospasm/COPD. I've already ordered CoQ10, Curcumin, Oil of Oregano, and N-Acetyl Cysteine. I also have a good quantity of steam distilled water but purchased celtic sea salt if recommended. I look forward to your rapid response. Thanks, Harold"
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] 04/07/2012: Rev. Concetta from Warren, Mi: "Dear Earth Clinic, I wanted to share my story with you, your readers as I have found your site very useful-
I smoked for over twenty years and in 2004 was diagnosed with COPD, I stopped smoking, changed my diet, and got on with life- In 2007 my health began a fairly steady decline, I would go to work and feel fatigued, constant headaches, loss of appetitie- I truly thought I was dying and hopeless, I found earth clinic and tried the H2O2 diluted in water, now for me this paticular cure did not seem to help, though I know it has for many- By 2009 I was in a terrible state, not only with the COPD but with the addition of Multiple Chemical Sensetivity, after exposure to my workplace I would get headaches so severe that I would sleep for 12 to 14 hours, I had intense leg muscle pain, sinus problems, fatigue... Oh it went on and on- I was fired from my job, even though I requested accomodations, I requested that air fresheners, perfumes be banned and that I would be notified when spraying pesticides, and the use of organic cleaning solutions... After three years working for a state funded non-profit, I was let go because they did not want to trample on other people's rights to be fragrant or become the perfume police- Now I am out of work and sick, had to apply for disability, because I could not find a non toxic work environment, I could not work outside as the cold took my breath away and walking any distance was out of the question- So after 3 bouts of Pnuemonia in two years, being placed on three different inhalers I still felt awful- I had to make a choice to die like this or to find something that would help- After much research and trial and error, realizing that every cure does not work for everyone (DON"T GIVE UP! ) I have found a good combination for my body- I take;
Vitamin C 1000 mg 1 tab 3x a day Super Cayenne 100,000 HU 1 tab 3x a day Full spectrum Mullein Leaf 500 mg 1tab 2x a day Ashwagandha 450 mg 2 caps 1x a day Swanson's Lung Essentials 2 caps 2x per day Calcium w/Mag and Vitamin D 1,000 mg 2 caps 2x per day Marshmallow Root 500 mg 1 cap 1x per day Capsicum w/ eucalyptus nasal spray 2x per day Tumeric 1/4 spoon dissolved in warm milk 3x per week Juiced garlic mixed with apple cider vinegar and honey a shot mixed with warm water 1x per day
I plan on adding MSM to this mix-
So it has been two weeks in and the difference is notable, I can breathe much easier, I can walk further, I can clean my house without having to sit down every five minutes, I feel I have more energy, return of appetite, better sleep, headaches are gone, sinus problems, pressure, running nose, are slight and I think I have less senstivity to chemical fragrances, I'm still testing this but will keep you updated- I am still taking my inhalers as prescribed, but may attempt to cut down usage and see how that goes... I hope this may serve to offer hope to someone else suffering, there is a way, you just have to find what works for you- Much Love and Many Blessings-"
[YEA] 11/29/2012: Ginta from Phoenix, Arizona, Usa: "I am 63 and have severe COPD from smoking since I was about 16. I've had chronic bronchitis for a number of years and recently found some articles on using N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) for clearing phlem, so I bought some from a local health food store. I've been taking 1200mg/day and am amazed at the results - after just one day I was coughing up a lot, but the phlem was foamy rather than thick and sticky. It's been over a week now that I've been taking the NAC and my coughing has lessened significantly. I am now also taking serrapeptase and niacin.
I was recently given a nebulizer machine by someone who's friend passed away from his COPD (he was 81 and had three nasty bouts of pneumonia) and have ordered some hoses/mouthpieces and some liquid DMSO, MSM and colloidal silver to try Ted's DMSO treatments to further help clear my lungs. I'll post an update after a few weeks."
Natural Microdose Dna
05/26/2010: Robert from Martinez, Ca: "For those with C.O.P.D. & other respiratory ailments, please check research on 'natural microdose DNA' which is not a product name but a natural substance with research & use for humans & also in the veterinary fields. The price for the product is very reasonable for its effectiveness & is available to all as it is not a drug."Replies
[YEA] 05/27/2010: Vicki from New Plymouth, Taranaki, New Zealand replies: "Hi everybody. I'd like support what Robert said about Natural Microdose DNA. I've got an earlier post about my father using this product for his emphysema. He's improving all the time. His peak flow meter has risen even further from my previous post, written three weeks ago. It's now rarely below 200 and several times has been 220. He made more rapid progress when he started putting the drops underneath his tongue instead of on top of his tongue as he had been doing. I've just ordered another bottle from iherb.com. It costs me $NZ60 for one bottle plus courier to New Zealand, which only takes six days. Of course, this would be less in US dollars. A bottle lasts about two months at the normal dose, so it's pretty cheap, especially for something that actually works!! Obviously, other places sell it, apart from iherb.com, but if you go to their site and put "Natural Microdose DNA" or "Salmon DNA" in the search box, the product will come up and you will be able to read some very positive customer reviews about it. I hope it can help some of you with respiratory conditions, like it is helping Dad.
