Hydrogen Peroxide  

Posted by Anne D. (Kenya) on 08/10/2015

[YEA]  My husband was diagnosed with stage 4 COPD in December 2014. He started on H2O2 that Christmas and is still going. He stopped the peroxide in the following March and after a rerun of hip surgery caught a cold which resulted in atttacks of both viral and bacterial pneumonia in five weeks. We thought he wouldn't make it. He went back on the peroxide and at 80 is still able to run his little business repairing antiques and other furniture (He has workers to do the actual repairs but supervises everything).

He is on about 12 drops twice a day diluted according to the protocol and also nebulizes 3ml 3% twice a day and has a humidfier with an even more dilute solution running all night. He is on an oxygenator at night but can manage if there is a power cut.

I think it is the peroxide that has kept him alive and well enough to still enjoy life and feel useful.

[YEA]  I've used food grade h2o2 for copd and had some success- need to get more and try again-it is almost elusive to obtain!!

One compound pharmacy had to ask the boss if they could sell it as... they use h2o2 to make a lot of medicine! I got some from them-expensive-then contacted a BIG wholesale chemical company that gave me a pint or 2 for free as they sell it in 55 gallon drums-not too drastic for so much!

It does oxygenate and many diseases cannot live in an oxygen rich environment.

It may have some side effects that are not that nice- so watch out and I'd say (altho I am NOT a physician at all), use in moderation and probably not needed long term-continually. Experiment a little- see how you feel, I wager it will help in the right dose and over X amount of time depending on your condition

Good Luck!

On another note - if you do have any further knowledge of h2o2 effects on hemochromatosis PLEASE email me asap

[YEA]  I have been using 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide for my copd and it has all but gone completely. I put 3 drops of hydrogen peroxide in a 8 oz glass and drink it three times a day adding one drop daily until reaching 25 drops and then staying on 25 drops for 5 days and then working back one drops less each day until I reach 3 drops daily for one week. and then check your status.

Did you use dilute the peroxide to 3 % hydrogen peroxide? How long did you take the peroxide for before noticing the results? Did you have severe COPD?

Richard, I understood a person had to dilute the food grade 35% hp before consuming, I started this method, mixing 1 ounce hp to 11 ounces of distilled water and inhale, on 4th day and do not notice much difference in breathing, maybe I am doing it wrong, there are so many different ways of doing this, I just want to be safe and also help with my breathing. thank you with any answers you can give me.

I am trying to find out whether inhaled H202 (through a pump spray or nebulizer) mainly benefits COPD sufferers with mucous/phlegm problems or whether H202 delivers a generally beneficial effect. This is because I have moderate/serious COPD and have no apparent phlegm problems (at least I don't cough anything up) : I have been inhaling 3% H202 (reduced from 35% FG ) for some weeks with minimal effects.

Could people reply with a brief message saying if they inhale H202 with a pump spray or nebulizer, whether they have phlegm problems and the effect?

Hi my name is Patricia and I have COPD I have been researching h2o2 now for almost a week. After reading all I found on the web and coming to sites like Earth Clinic I have decided to try taking h2o2 orally and also maybe trying Bill Munro method (inhaler) I now feel a bit more confident to try and maybe not so scared.

This is a brilliant site so glad I found it. I am a novice so I will be proberly be asking a load of questions as I go on.

I am going to start with 1 drop in 8ozs of distilled water 3xday increasing the drops by one each day till taking 26 drops in 8ozs water 3xday then reducing drops back till I get to maintance level does this sound about right, any feedback would be great.

Many thanks, Pat

Hi Patsymay,

Based on one drop per 8oz distilled are looking at appox .0014% of HP (food grade) whereas 26drops per 8oz of distilled water would equate to 1.08% HP (food grade) which would be too much....the best or highest recommended dose is 0.5% Hp (food Grade) so....I would not go above 12 drops of HP (food grade) using distilled can check out these findings @ luck ....Bill

[SIDE EFFECTS]  Hi, I emailed Bill about using hp and as yet have not received an answer from anyone, can you please tell me what kind of information he needs before he will reply?
I started taking 3% drug store hp and still using my copd meds ( advair & combivent inhailers) and the last two days I have been very shaky and had problem with nerves it only lasts a few hours but I am concerned should I stop using hp?
My husband started at same time I did and feels burning in chest. Please let us know what we should do. Thank you Billy

Billy, please make sure your HP is food grade HP not just ordinary from a drugstore. Then start with a small amount, following the instructions that you will find on earth clinic. The treatment I found very effective.

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]   I use food grade Peroxide. It is 35% so it must be diluted. 1 drop of peroxide to 11 drops of water gives you about a 3% solution. Also, use purified water. I'm using 3 drops peroxide w/33 drops water in a nebulizer. I'm much better than I was. It's not a cure but it sure helps.

[YEA]  I have always been impressed with positive feedback from those who start out as non-believers. Here is an extract from an email I recently received from my father who is suffering from COPD. "Hi Lynn, I want to say a big thanks to you for putting me on to Hydrogen Peroxide. I'm sceptical about alternative medicine on the whole but I'm convinced of the benefits of this treatment. It is possible that some effects come from a lessening of grass pollen and the cleansing of the air by rain - but surely they are not responsible for the complete transformation experienced over the past week or so. I walked a Hawk's Brow circuit this morning - the first time since 27 May (and this was a walk usually done several times a week). I was going to say that there was no coughing as such - but in fact there was really none at all! I now feel optimistic about sticking around for a while yet..."

1920/30 hydrogen Peroxide was "discovered as a cure all and is one of the most incredible all round even cancer, tb, you name it, naturally the medical scallies had to stop it! They fabricated a 12 year old girl that was killed by using H202. Only recently has this "staged" death come to light. Is there a limit to the evil of greed? We have been singularly honoured by the inspirational public service of a man like TED. He has and does share with us a fantastic insight into natural cures and nature.

The above is my "Sincere thank you Ted"

The study of H202 would be most rewarding and there are books available on this versitile Natural gift to mankind, go for it, please

[YEA]  Please don't ingest store-bought 3% H202; do read about 35% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide at Dr David G Williams website (google, "The Many Benefits of Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide," find the Williams entry, which offers instructions on its use.

I had TB in service (WW2), didn't know it, self-cured it (we're giants at 19) but was a shallow breather. In 1984 I was showed lung scars on my chest X-ray and finally knew why I had difficulty breathing.

Recently my breathing worsened, limited me to four hours sleep a night. Recalling that one sister died of IFP, one of emphysema, I looked at myself at 87.

Hoping for a longer life, I'd followed an FG H202 regimen for four years -- high dosages for a month, then 3 drops a day in spring water and no colds in that time. Now deep breathing was impossible, so I upped my FG H202 intake to 9 drops (3 X3) a day.

There was improvement. Hardly dramatic, yet I was grateful for it. Now I'm seeking a Homeopath who offers the IV H202 treatment. Dr Williams says it really works on emphysema-- we'll see about that.

The government calls me a death-panel candidate, but I call them names, too. And yes, my COPD worries don't compare to those of others in this forum, but I had to offer this FG H202 advice anyway. I ask you to help yourselves. Read on Dr Williams' website -- I found it as I found Earth Clinic. By happy chance.

I read that you should never do vitamin c, iron, or fatty foods with h2o2 and you also should not eat 2hours before or 1 hour after taking h2o2 orally. Does anyone have more info on this?

[BETTER BUT WITH SIDE EFFECTS]  i have copd & on 2 inhalers & one powered inhaler. first 2 every 6 hrs as needed ,the third 2 xs a day. was 49 when informed of this, am 54 now& this treatment is not working. have a couple air purifers in home to clean air but this really brings little comfort. my dr. says there is no cure for this but we can control it to some point. but i can"t seem to settle for this answer when i am finding it harder to breath sometimes the pressure in my chest so bad i am gaspping just to take a breath. feels like a heavy rock laying on my chest.

then i started to do reseach on h2o2 therapy. using 35%food grade hydrogen peroxide. dosage schedule for undiluted 35% h2o2 first day 3 drops, 3 times a day .. second day 4 drops, 3 times a day ... increasing each day by two drops until you get up to 25 drops, 3x per day x 25 drops= 75 your peak for 1 / 3 weeks ... then you start to reduce the dosage like 25 drops every other day, 4 times a week ...25 drops every third day for 2 weeks .... to 25 drops every 4 days for 3 weeks. DO NOT stop taking it if you feel sick until you complete the program because this sickness is due to the toxics in your body that are being destroyed by the h2o2..... boy i must be full of toxins cause i feel sick to my stomack but i really can inhale/ exhale much easier. i am trying to do this to the end but i can only get up to 25 drops 2 x s per day for 2 more days & i will start to back down. have i done this all wrong?

I'm 71 years, smoked for 50 years (I stopped right away) and now as of 3 years ago was told I have COPD. I use oxygen at night and I use a nebulizer with a combo of 2 meds for copd, they work well. I had 2 of what is called flair ups, then to the hospital for a lung treatment (breathing treatment), and of course they decided to kept me for 3 and then the second time 4 days. By the way, when the ambulance came to get me they put me on a breathing treatment, so when we got to the hospital I felt find breathing great. But they kept me (running up a bill). This is just background stuff.

I had a pint of food grade h2o2 from a few years ago in my refrigerate, so I diluted 11oz of distilled water to 1oz of h2o2 and started to use my nebulizer (2 eye droppers). As I start a treatment in the back of my throat it kind of burns a little after a bit when I breath in, when I finished I wash my mouth out and then things are ok.

Now here is the 64 dollar question, is the mixture amount ok, and how many times a day should I do this (now, just 1 time per day around 1 ish, just started), (morn I us my copd meds), and how do I know if things are working for me. I'm not looking for medical advice :) but would like some good feed back. I will not use 3% store stuff for internal use. Thanks to you all.

Hi Denis393...I recently used both Hydrogen Peroxide(HP) and 5% Lugol's Iodine(LI) with water in a nebulizer at different times for what I thought was an oncoming cold or flu virus and it was very effective. This is not the same as your condition but I'm just going to explain how I used these in a nebulizer as a help to you.

I first used a store-bought 1.5% HP solution in my nebulizer and inhaled it for about 10 minutes. Yes, there was some burning in the throat but that goes away fairly quickly after you stop. What I noticed with using HP was that it dislodged and loosened a considerable amount of phlegm which was very useful, since it made my breathing easier. Of course, I did cough a little bit but this actually helped to get the loosened excess phlegm out which was beneficial. I eventually put the HP strength up to 3% and tried it out for 5 mins without problems.

I then tried using 2 drops of 5% LI in water with the nebulizer and this had a very interesting effect. I nebulized for 5 mins. It seemed to greatly reduce or remove excessive phlegm in my lungs. This was probably due to LI's anti-inflammatory(or histamine reducing) effect. LI is well known to generally reduce mucus and phlegm and I was also pleased with this outcome. I inhaled the LI + water for about 5 mins and got the same burning in my throat which I ignored.

I then used and combined both the HP and LI inhaling methods every day on a day on day off basis. Both LI and HP kill a very wide range of pathogen species including many bacteria, viruses, mycoplasma, parasites, and fungus. Needless to say, the cold or flu virus never had a chance to properly take hold and I got rid of it quickly in only a few days.

Interestingly, both the nebulized HP and LI both helped to disinfect and clear my sinuses and nasal passages as well.

hi I have just recently started using h2o2 for copd everything I have read says to use distilled water but I have found in Woolworth's supermarket, Nobles Pureau water, it has no chlorine, chloride or any trace elements what so ever so I wonder if this is ok to use? can anyone help me out with this. Also I'd like to try using h2o2 in a nebuliser, has anyone tried it and if so has it helped. Thanks, would like to hear from anyone with other suggestions as well.

HI U JOSIE, , , , , , , , , , , don't make this difficult, just use distilled water. I used 3% when doing the Bill Munro protocol, but had to cut the H2O2 to 1 1/2 % when I went to a nebulizer due to irritation.

Wish you well.

Dear Josie,

The water you are talking about sounds fine to me.

We have used hydrogen peroxide in a nebulizer and find it effective. Perhaps less convenient. We mix 5 drops of 3% hydrogen peroxide from the brown bottle with 35 drops of distilled (or very pure water) together and use that in the nebulizer. That seems to be plenty strong and yet still effective.

Patrick, two things that you can start with: put a spritz of regular h2o2 into a humidifier and have it run near her bed at night.

The second thing: there exists a machine, dunno the name, that clears the air in a room from smoke etc. I've seen a person who was extremely sensitive to smoke, have it going in her room, and she didn't even know that someone was smoking in the next room!

I have an Ionic Breeze machine. I think that is what you are talking about. Takes toxins and impurities out of the air.

Dear Fran,

Bill Munroe used his hydrogen peroxide inhalation method for years with success. When we have used hydrogen peroxide in the nebulizer, we have used it "as needed, " but we were only using it for an acute cough.

I am wondering how many times a day are you using it currently?

Hi, I hope someone can answer my question on how inhaling Food grade hydrogen peroxide helps COPD. it is said that in cases of copd, the elastin fibres are compromised. Any information on this answer would greatly appreciated.. Thanks

[WARNING!]  I have copd and I kept reading of h2o2 inhulation therapy. I started Bill Munro's regime, but not faithfully. One weekend I decided to go at it aggressively. I did the nasal spray in the throat, plus I added it to my nebulizer. A little works, so A LOT should really do it, right ? I did not measure it, I just added h202 straight. Did not help my breathing because I had loosened whatever is in my lungs, and blocked my air. My husband had to call 911. My O2 was in the 50's and I blacked out. Had to be on by-pap for 2 days.

I am not telling anyone not to do the inhulation, I am saying do not try to over do it for faster results!! I may even try it again, but follow the instructions that were so clearly given.

HI U GABBYSUE, , , , , , , , , , Hammer meet nail. Girl you right about this. 3 % is OK via mouth inhalation , but not with a nebulizer as we have learned. We cut the 3% H2O2 by half to avoid the burning.

With a Southern double name, you got to be of my generation. That just does not happen any more. Folks now all expect their younguns to be in the movies so they give them a Hollywood name to start with. Glad you have recovered and go slow as you indicated. Don't stop, just slow down.

I posted on 02/15 a warning about using h2o2 too aggressively for copd. I waited a year before trying it again. I used the Bill Munro method as well as in nebulizer. I nebulized about 3 mins about 3 times a day. I used nasal sprayer in throat about every 4 hours, 10 sprays. Three days later...Same as before. Oxygen level dropped rapidly. Albuterol in nebulizer did nothing. Blacked out before ambulance got here. Woke up 3 1/2 days later on a ventilator.

They tried for 3 days to get me to breath on my own. Needless to say it really put a scare in my family. I am 56 yr and smoked for over 30 yrs. I had such high hopes for the h2o2 use because I think I read ALL the testimonials. Of coarse when I first mentioned this to my pulmonary doctor he said "why would you want to put bleach in your body". I believed the folks on EC anyway. The only thing I can think of is that I did loosen up tar or whatever else smoking put on my lungs. I will still take advice as to what to do. I am happy for the ones it has helped.

Hey Gabby....... You did it again... you went right back and did the same thing by overdosing. Robert told you slow and easy. You took the max amount nebulized, the max amount of sprays in the shortest amount of time. Where did you read that you could max out both treatments? Baby, do one or the other. Cut your dose and in half, and extend your time between treatments, and love yourself! Dont harm yourself again. This is good stuff that works. It will work for you too!

[YEA]  H2O2 inhalation for COPD: I'm having good results with peroxide in my nebulizer. I have diluted food grade hydrogen peroxide (diluted to 3%) in a glass eyedropper. I put distilled water into another eyedropper. Two droppers of peroxide and three droppers of water seems to be the dosage that works for me. I had a bit of an irritation in my throat when I went a little stronger.

Twice I did a lot of deep breathing with the nebulizer and got a little light headed. Took me a while before I realized that I was just hyperventilating. So just do your regular breathing.

I find that if I haven't used it for several days, I'll have a bit of phlegm so I have to clear my throat a few times. My thinking is that it's loosening up the crud in my lungs and that's not a bad thing!

Thanks to EC and the people that take the time to post. It's all so helpful to read everyone's experiences.

May I suggest, when performing a breathing treatment, H2O2, CS, DMSO, whatever, exhale as deeply as possible, inhale as deeply as possible and hold up to 10 seconds. As we repeat the process, we begin to breath in deeper and deeper, getting our chosen solution to the bottom of our lungs. Normal breathing only goes down into our lungs about 20% - 30% of their capacity.
