[YEA]  09/09/2006: Kristy from Lansing, MI: "I've been doing Vinegar/soda and inhaling peroxide. Inhaling hydrogen peroxide is helping the problem I've had with fatigue for a long time. I'm not sure if it's actually helping the cold I've had for almost three weeks or not (some of it could be from detoxifying?). I did double the amount I've been giving my husband last night and it's the first night in years that I haven't been disturbed from his restless leg syndrome."

08/07/2009: Sandy from Front Royal, Va replies: "Taking a little magnesium (or 1/4 teaspoon of Epsom Salts in water) will stop most restless leg syndrome within a few minutes. If not, take another dose."
01/13/2012: Grannykeeperpdx from Portland, Or replies: "For Restless Leg Syndrome many people swear putting soap under the sheet will help. I don't know if it's a bar or what. Got the info from People's Pharmacy. You can Google it."

[SIDE EFFECTS]  01/23/2014: Ellie from Upstate, Ny: "Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation for lungs. Does anyone have suggestions about the taste? I did one inhalation with 4 pumps. I think I only inhaled the first pump (because of the taste I must of tensed up and the remaining pumps pooled up) and swallowed the last 3. I decided to wait to continue until the taste went away but it lasted on and off for about 3 days. Is it because I swallowed a small amount or is the taste normal? I'd like to use this method again as a preventative measure."

12/05/2013: Diana from Minnesota, Usa: "I am not sure if I should quit my Advair before I start inhaling H2O2. I have searched everywhere and can't find an answer to my question. Also I bought 3% food grade hydrogen peroide, will this be the same as diluting the 35%? How much should I do a day? Thanks to everyone on this site!!!"

11/15/2013: Baiazid from Gvrd, Bc: "H2O2 inhalation + ACV or Vit C:

Hi, I have read about not mixing H2O2 with ACV and Vit C for drinking, but my question is about the inhalation method. Does anyone know if it they can be applied together or not? And Why? Thank You"

11/28/2013: Jenny from Chicago replies: "Baia... I wouldn't inhale a mix of vinegar and peroxide. Together they make a chemical compound called peroxycetic acid. It could damage your lungs!"
01/25/2014: Baiazid from Gvrd, Bc replies: "Hi Jenny,

Thanks for answering. I have not formulated my question clearly. It does look like I meant to ask if they can be mixed and inhaled. What I actually meant was if I can inhale just the h2o2 solution as Bill says and then, right after, if I can drink the acv.

Will that have the same effect as if I drank the h2o2 drops and then drank the acv? This is my question and I should have presented it better."

07/23/2013: Jacob from Spokane, Washington, United States: "I want to use the inhalation method for hydrogen peroxide and was wondering if this would be as effective as drinking hydrogen peroxide for a chronic pain issue?"

07/24/2013: Mmsg from Somewhere, Europe replies: "Jacob, I wouldn't know how to compare it as I don't take it internally, but for me the inhalation of h2o2 is very useful for any respiratory related ailment, and possibly for more things too."

02/04/2013: Sue from Buffalo, Ny: "I was searching for some ideas regarding natural therapies to supplement allopathic treatment for pneumonia and came across your site. I was very surprised to see a recommendation for peroxide inhalation to treat pneumonia. Yikes! While I can appreciate an exchange of ideas and see your site has a disclaimer regarding medical advice, I'd just like to make a comment to site participants that I would strongly discourage inhaling peroxide. Just as it creates a "bubbling" effect on a wound, the same would most likely happen in an infected lung creating a dangerous compromise in lung function and make things worse. I am not a physician, but an RN with 28yrs experience and I hope no one does that without talking to their doctor."

02/05/2013: Kay from In The Valley, Ca replies: "There are many, many people out there that would disagree with you. I've used it for chest colds and have recommended to others that have had remarkable success. There is a lot of info. on the internet regarding this procedure, and so many who have been helped. There are even some good books on the use of HP. Look into it a little further, you might be suprised by what you find."

10/12/2012: Megg from North Vernon, Indiana: "You all are fantastic. The stuff I have been reading is just overwhelming!! I would like to know instead of ussing the nasal spray I would like to use the nebulizer. How much h202 can I put in it? I have 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide. if I wanted to add DMSO and CS to it how much and how often for all? thanks so much for all your help:) mrichards03(at)cinergymetro.net"

11/28/2013: Jenny from Chicago replies: "Sue, my understanding is that DMSO neutralizes hydrogen peroxide. I wouldn't mix them for that reason. Also, internal peroxide and DMSO by themselves are both very experimental. While I'm personally game for most anything if many people testify that it helped and did not apparently harm them, I wouldn't throw these remedies together willy nilly in a bottle and inhale them!"
03/14/2014: Chw777 from Atlanta Ga replies: "For heavens sake!! This is the second poster who mentions something called "CS" and won't tell us what it is. Those of us who are ill will lung issues are looking for help. Please help us."

EC: CS = Colloidal Silver

[YEA]  10/06/2012: Richard from Wagoner, Oklahoma: "I had posted a write up on this subject several months back. The improvement I got from the treatment has stabilized and leveled out at a defiantly improved condition. I now do the treatments on an occasional basis but have gone for weeks at a time without it and the benefit seems to be long lasting. As an experiment, I have been using a vitamin and mineral supplement which has added a new level of improvement! This combination has really helped me out. I did a cut and paste on mixing this solution after reading it somewhere on this site but can't recall in order to give credit. I put into "word" and will be happy to share it with anyone who requests it."

10/09/2012: Megg from North Vernon, Indiana, Usa replies: "I would like to know the amounts you used and how you did it. I would like to use my nebulizer for this.. You can email me at mrichards03(at)cinergymetro.net thanks megg"
12/17/2012: Susan from Somerdale, Nj replies: "I just started using hp in my nebulizer.. I add a few drops of albuterol to expand my lungs a bit... Then I inhale 8 puffs.. 2or3 times a day... I have MAC , a chronic lung infection and lately I, ve been very tired and also coughing more... But in these last 2days I am not needing to stop and rest in the middle of the day... I have hope that I can be energetic again!!!! I'll keep you posted. Sue"

08/05/2012: Judy from Moody, Alabama: "I have been inhaling food grade 3% h202 for copd. I have been on it about 2 months inhaling two times in the morning and two times in the evening. It seem to make my breathing worse. has anyone else had this happen? any advice? or should I stop taking it."

07/18/2012: James from Taipei, Taiwan: "I have tried this but is it supposed to sting the throat as it goes down? Almost instantly my throat begins to sting when spraying the undiluted 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide down my throat. Is it safe to continue?"

06/22/2012: Chris from Toronto, Ontario, Canada: "Hi, Last night I tried the hydrogen peroxide inhalation method using 3% diluted food grade hydrogen peroxide. I immediately felt pressure in my chest that has not gone away. I also have sustained heavy breathing. Has anyone experienced this? I sprayed about 4-5 times. Is the concentration too strong?"

02/19/2012: Hazel from London, Essex U K: "Can you please advise on protocol re oral taking of hydrogen peroxide. William campbell douglass states in his book medical miracle never to exceed 10 drops 3 times daily of 3 percent dilution yet others indicate dosages of 3 drops up to 25 drops 3 times a day of the much more stronger 35 percent. Two of which are the little help brochure supplied with the 35 percent food grade h2o2 I purchased and also the book the one minute cure. thank you. hazel."

12/07/2011: George from Porthmadog, Gwynedd: "Does the peroxide colour your mouth and throat when you inhale?"

12/07/2011: Lilydy from Alice Springs, Australia replies: "No it does not. You inhale inside into your throat and it does not discolor.. If it does it is just temporary."

11/19/2011: Jpchris from North Hollywood, Ca, Usa: "Hi all,

I have been in contact with Bill Munro regarding 3% hydrogen peroxide inhalation therapy. He made it abundundantly clear that the HP you buy at drug stores is perfectly OK — even with stabilizers.

When I pointed out to him that I had read a lot of posts stating H202 with stabilizers is a real no-no, he said, "Baloney! Don't concern yourself! I've been doing it for umpteen years now and I'm healthy and I haven't had any negative effects.""

[YEA]  10/09/2011: Gracer from Ore City, Tx: "I started inhaling the h2o2 just over 3 weeks ago. I have a facial pain situation like a stinging and burning now for 17 years. Have tried lots of things. This h2o2 inhalation is excellent for my pain. First I dilute it to 1%. That is 2 parts water added to one part 3% peroxide in a pint jar. For spraying, I use an elongated, 2 oz spray bottle from Wal-Mart. I spray every 30 minutes after meals until the pain subsides because my pain starts after eating. When my pain is suppressed, I spray every hour or two. I spray 3 pumps per breath, for 10 breaths, which is 30 sprays per dose. I look forward to doing this long term to cure whatever is diseased in my body. I may purchase the Conair or Revlon facial sauna system to try breathing the steam at the same 1% peroxide strength."

10/10/2011: Gracer from Ore City, Tx replies: "In the hopes of inhaling a finer mist, I cancelled my Conair facial sauna order and just ordered a MistyMate 2point5 instead. Will see how it goes. My throat got a little irritated on the 1% strength, so I now use a point5% (1/2 %) strength and I like it better. That is 5 parts water to one part of the 3% peroxide from Dollar General or Wal-Mart. My pain did well today inhaling every hour and I am looking forward to receiving the MistyMate because it appears to deliver a large amount of fine mist."
10/23/2011: Gracer from Ore City, Tx replies: "Still inhaling the. 5 percent (1/2 %) peroxide with favorable results. Intend to do this long term. Hope to turn any grey areas in my hair to the natural brown like Bill Munro. Still inhaling every half hour when pain is present (3 sprays per breath for 5 breaths) and every hour or two when pain is not present and also whenever I get up during the night.

If cancer is caused by a breakdown in the immune system, and the immune system uses hydrogen peroxide as it's primary defense, then inhaling hydrogen peroxide it seems would reactivate the immune system and possibly cure cancer. That is what I hope with myself, to become immune to and possibly cure any cancer in my body, which I would not be surprised that I have. That is what I hope to accomplish with H2O2 inhalation long term."

11/09/2011: Gracer from Ore City, Tx replies: "Unfortunately, the MistyMate8 had a spray pattern that was too wide at the source and not as fine as the MistyMate2.5, so I will probably return it to the company. The 2 oz spray bottle from Wal-Mart is not bad and I will continue to use it. I guess a nebulizer might be best.

Still getting good results it seems for pain if I spray hourly but I also recently started taking astaxanthin from algae, a red/pink carotenoid antioxidant with very favorable results.

Astaxanthin is what makes shrimp and flamingos pink. I take just 4 mg per day (one softgel) of the Jarrow brand. I tried 2 per day but got short of breath at night, almost like I needed more oxygen, so I cut it back to one softgel in the morning. Research and testimonials say astaxanthin improves the eyes, skin and is helpful for senility and dementia, both as a preventive and treatment because I think it said it crosses the blood-brain barrier. It helps my energy, too. Because astaxanthin is so good, I went off of trans-resveratrol but am not sure yet if permanently. I was able to also go off of vitamin E mixed tocopherols since starting astaxanthin as I felt it was duplicative and no longer necessary and I think the vitamin E conflicted with the astaxanthin as the two together made me feel bad if I am not mistaken. So astaxanthin is very powerful and helps my pain through an anti-inflammatory effect."

12/12/2011: Gracer from Ore City, Tx replies: "The h2o2 inhalation seems to be doing better than anything else I have tried for my facial pain. I went back to the 10 breath dose with 3 sprays per breath. That seems to last at least an hour, depending on what I have recently eaten, or I can spray every half hour if necessary. The .5% dilution seems just right, with a couple small swallows of water after each dose of ten breaths to wash away the peroxide."
02/07/2012: Gracer from Ore City, Tx replies: "I still inhale the. 5% peroxide about every hour of the day, after meals and also when I wake up at night, which is maybe twice or so. I have been inhaling for over 4 months now, and nothing I have tried over the last 18 years beats this H2O2 inhalation for a facial pain situation.

Three sprays per breath for ten breaths, using a 2 oz spray bottle from Wal-Mart which costs about $1, using the bottled 3% peroxide from Wal-Mart or Dollar General diluted 5 parts well water (tap water and not chlorinated) to 1 part 3% peroxide.

Now I can eat anything and instead of pain, I just do some sprays and the pain is very much suppressed. I used to worry about what I was going to eat, avoiding hot peppers and many other foods like nuts or sugar. It didn't seem to matter what I ate that brought on pain, but now, it is just the opposite where it doesn't matter what I eat, the pain stays subdued.

I do avoid corn, however, because it stirs up fungal conditions like atheletes foot with me."

11/28/2013: Jenny from Chicago replies: "You could also try a cool-mist nebulizer, which uses ultrasonic waves to turn the water/peroxide mix into tiny droplets (less coughing). I got mine new on the eBay auction site for $26."
