Hydrogen Peroxide in Ears

Posted by B.A. (Fairbanks, AK)

[YEA]  I use the 3% peroxide drops in the ears 1-3x for 5 min each, ear up, AND then drain and dry with 70% ethyl alcohol to prevent "damp" residual in ear after blotting externally with a paper towel. Has worked well for ear aches with 2 daughters.


Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation Method  
7 User Reviews | 6 YEA    Treatment

Posted by Sonya (Manhattan, USA) on 08/25/2009

[YEA]  My husband started feeling symptoms of the flu on Friday, but I didn't feel them until Monday. I started inhaling 3% peroxide to the back of my throat and into my lungs following Bill Munro's instructions right away. I felt immediately better (literally, 5 minutes later) but 20 minutes later I felt the virus returning to my head. Instead of waiting the 2-3 hours for the inhalation like the instructions state, I decided to inhale again. Again my symptoms disappeared almost immediately. I kept inhaling every time I felt the symptoms returning and by midnight, I didn't have any more symptoms. I went to sleep, symptom free and did the peroxide again this morning, after an 8 hour break and will continue to inhale every 2-3 hours now. I am not 100% (mild congestion) but am doing sooo much better than my husband who is still miserable with congestion.

I am coming to the conclusion that the key to this inhalation method is starting it as soon as you feel the symptoms and then continuing it for a day or two. Don't stop doing it even if you feel better! I also think that inhaling every few hours is not enough if you have a bad strain of the virus. Inhaling every time I feel symptoms returning has been the key to kicking this virus. No doubt I will be able to test my findings again this winter, but hopefully not with the swine flu.

Good luck everyone. We need to be prepared for a bad swine flu season!

Hi Sonya. Thank you for solving a mystery for me! I don't know about anyone else but I spit out a lot of the peroxide after inhaling it, even though I try to keep it in my lungs as long as possible. Because most of the peroxide ends up being spit out into the sink, I am thinking that only itty bitty teeny weeny amounts are making it into the lungs. So it makes total sense that you need to do it more frequently than once every three hours in order for it to kill (starve?) the virus.

[YEA]   I had a similar experience. I had been doing the inhalation method for several months then kind of slowed down on it. Upon slowing down I felt a cold coming on. I have always gotten at least 2 colds a year and they last 10-14 days always. When I felt this cold coming on I started inhaling the peroxide as many as 10-12 times per day 4-6 sprays each time. Within a couple of days it was gone and did not return. I am a believer in this method of killing viruses. Good luck!

[YEA]   I too am using H2O2 inhalation, only by nebulizer since the spray bottle method I tried about a year ago did not give much improvement in my lung condition after using it for a long period of time, although it did help with sinus congestion. I started inhaling it in the nebulizer about a week ago for my COPD in order to try and wean myself off of inhalers and possibly improve the lung condition. I'm so glad I did as the following morning when I woke up my lungs were opened up for a fuller breath of air and I had great energy, I couldn't believe how good I felt. I washed my windows yesterday, a big accomplishment for me and I have not needed so much extra sleep as before. I've used it 3 times now, so I'd say I use it about every other day and plan to continue this routine and/or make adjustments depending on how I feel or if I'm feeling too dried out. I put about 1/8 tsp of 3% HP in the nebulizer cup along with 1 tsp distilled water and 1/2 tsp of colloidal silver, the kind with sun and stars on the aqua label. (I did consumer research and found this as the purest for me to use). I'm still using inhalers and supplements so far until I see cosistent progress and get checked by my doctor to see how how things stand clinically. Good luck to all and feel free to write with any questions you may have.

[YEA]   I have been using this nebulizer with the peroxide and it's amazing 3-5 times a day. Peroxide is only H202 which is oxygen and where there is enough oxygen no virus or bacteria can grow. I have also a vaporizer that I put the peroxide in and let it run all day and night . This is great for babies and kids thank you for this web site as it is my favorite one.:)

[YEA]  Yesterday morning I awoke with the beginnings of the flu. My tell tale sign was that my neck ached like crazy right at the base of the skull and I was severely fatigued. My husband had been sick with the flu last week so I figured my turn had come. Well, I started inhaling my 3% peroxide h202 at 10:00am every 2 to 3 hours and by 5:00pm I was back to normal... no neck ache, no exhaustion, nothing. I am going to keep it up for a total of 3 days I think to make sure the virus has been eliminated, but this is the 5th time I have done this remedy for a virus bug and it has worked every time. It is a gem of a remedy. Thanks, Bill!

[YEA]  Since I heard about the h202 inhalation method on your site last winter, I have used it to treat viruses about 8 times. It is really the #1 remedy of all time in my opinion. Funnily enough, all my friends are scared to try it even though I tell them to just try it! But I did get my mother to use it (73 years old and going strong). She LOVES it now! At any rate, last night I started to get a sore throat and felt terrible and weak. I inhaled 2 hours apart and woke up feeling 100%.

[YEA]  I read Ted's post on Earth Clinic that Lysine would help with Flu. My daughter called me and said, Mom Amber (my grand daughter) has the flu what can I do? I had just finished reading Ted's post that taking 1500 mg of lysine every few hours would get rid of the flu. My daughter call me later that evening and said Amber was feeling much better. This made a believer out of her. I plan to keep a bottle of Lysine on hand. Checks Ted's post on flu to get the exam amount of lysine to use. Thanks Earth Clinic and Ted for all your Help!!!!!!

L-Lysine, Tomato Tea

[BETTER BUT WITH SIDE EFFECTS]  side effects natural flu treatment (lysine, tomato tea)

My mother got the flu (congestion, sore throat) and I started to get a sore throat, so decided to treat us with L-lysine and hot tomato tea. We took 2x 1000mg lysine and 1X1000mg Vitamin C and drank 2-3 mugs of hot tomato tea for four days. I made the tomato tea using tomato puree, some black pepper, hot pepper powder, water, and then heated the mixture with sliced cayenne peppers and put lemon juice and some AVC in it after I Turned off the heat. Twice, I also put in this mixture an avocado and some turmeric (curcuma) powder). This regimen helped to spead up the healing process (or the flu virus is very mild), though did not get rid of the sore throat completely. However, my menstuation became very strong and my 67 years old mother who stopped menstuating 10 years ago had some spotiings. Did anybody of the women who tried L-lysine with tomato tea have simililar experiences?


Lemon and Honey

Posted by Alem (Perth, Australia) on 11/04/2007

[YEA]  I have heard about lemon & Honey cures from my over 110 year old grand-grandmother in Bosnia. I was overweight as a child and after starting to drink Lemon and honey tea (juice of 1 lemon, little honey and warm water) every morning my whole system has changed. My weight has dropped and I never had a problem with it since. I can't remember the last time I had a cold or flu. Another thing that she told me to do was: When a person feels a cold or flu coming on, to use the juice of 3 lemons and add 5-6 big tablespoons of good honey, mix it well and drink it. I know it sounds horrible, however I can swear by it. I never got sick.


Lugol's Iodine

[YEA]  Cold, Flu, and food poisoning, 6 drops Lugol's solution (iodine) in a cup of water twice a day. Do not take if allergic to Iodine. Lugol's will cure salmonella, purify water ( in case of emergency or traveling overseas), and stop diaherra. Use lugol's not iodine tincture or providone iodine.


Magnesium Foot Bath

Posted by Francisca (Zug, Switzerland) on 03/03/2012

[YEA]  A little tip that helped me two weeks ago when I was feeling very ill with the flu. My legs were hurting big time so after dinner I made a hot footbath with nigari (the only kind of magnesium chloride we can get). Amazing, while before it felt like someone was cutting my legs off and my head was also feeling weird right afterwards I had no more discomfort. Worth trying..... I knew that a hot footbath can cure a headache because it pulls the blood away from the head and in this case it relieved me big time!


Miracle Flu Drink

[YEA]  I have to share a wonderful remedy that provided immediate relief and nipped my flu/cold/sore throat or whatever I was coming down with immediately.

In a blender, blend an entire bulb of raw garlic (I know lol that's alot! ), a huge slice of ginger, 3 tablespoons of raw organic honey, a tablespoon of organic cayenne pepper, 4 tablespoons of organic apple cider vinegar with mothers, 1 lemon squeezed, 2 cups of water.

Drink a sip of this special concoction every few hours (sip at first to make sure your stomach can handle it, and drink more if you can! ). This brought immediate relief to whatever I had going on! I am pretty healthy and typically I have other protocols that I employ (organic supplements), but this year, I am super passionate about using "whole real foods" for my body so that's why I tried this. My only warning is that you will reek/smell like garlic for at least two days, but I was so amazed at how quickly this worked that I had to share this remedy!


Mucous Buster Recipe

[YEA]  Use a vege/fruit juicer. Juice 1 clove of garlic & 1 strand of fresh ginger. This drink can be way strong but drink anyway & follow with H20. I experienced a massive expulsion of mucus from my mouth & once the mucus was expelled, I felt way cool & clean.

[YEA]  Hi there,
I wanted to thank everyone on this site for some great remedies. I am 5 and half months pregnant and I suffered with a very long and vigorous sinus and chest flu. My symptoms were a mild high temperature (37.5 -38) not high fever but enough to make me feel horrible. Coughing, sinus pressure with no ability to breathe through my nose. The symptoms lasted for 5 days until I decided to take serious action. For 3 days after 5 days of suffering I did the following steps 2 to 3 times a day until my symptoms disappeared!

Step 1:
Boil 3 cups water
Peel 3 large cloves of garlic and cut in half and add to water. Take water off heat and add half cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice. Add half cup of honey. Let mixture sit for 20 mins and then strain and drink.

Step 2:
Nasal irrigation
Buy a neti pot or Neil Med saline nasal rinse. Make sure not to make your own salt water solution it's not as balanced at the one you buy specifically for nasal irrigation. This helps soooo much but after 3 days of constant use.

Step 3:
Apple cider vinegar steam
Get _____s original apple cider vinegar
Take one cup of vinegar and one cup of water
Bring to a boil and breath the steam with a towel over the pot. Make sure the mixture is not boiling while you breath the steam. This may burn while you breath through your nose, make sure to keep your mouth and eyes closed. Breath the steam for 5 min intervals. If it burns a lot them lift head up higher. This works the best!!!!! It just takes a few days of patience!

Step 4:
Take extra vitamin c. Preferably the powder that you can drink. Do not exceed more than 2000mg. Do these steps every day for 3 days and I promise you will feel soo much better if not totally healed. Cheers,
Kasia

[YEA]  As I sit here I am recovering from what I am sure is the flu. I started with fever 102 and runny nose all at the same time. Terrible body aches. I nipped it in the bud with ACV three times daily. I took actonite, 5 pearls, and 2 aspirin together and I wasn't sure if I was suppose to do that but it was a life saver. I felt greatly improved within 30 minutes. I also took some homeopathic cold and flu tablets that melt under your tongue.

Woke up this morning with no aches or fever. Just a little runny nose left. I also took colloidal silver 12 tsp three times daily.

Pretty good recovery in one day. I'm impressed! Thankyou so much.


Neem

Posted by Firstchild (Westerville, Ohio, Usa) on 01/09/2013

[YEA]  I cannot offer enough praise for Neem. I used the salve several years ago for cellulitis on my arm. It was suggested to me by an owner of the health food shop I frequented. It was a mildly scented green salve. I decided to try it, as well as the capsules of Neem Leaves for internal use. In a few days, the salve, alone, worked to remove this weird bumpy rash that had been present for more than a month. I didn't even need the capsules. But luckily, I had them on hand last year when my neighbor came down with an awful upper respiratory virus. She hates antibiotics, but she had a fever and heavy lung congestion. I told her to try my Neem capsules, as my more recent research discovered Neem was anti-viral, anti-fungal, anti-microbial. Like using goldenseal and echinacea rolled into one. She took 2 capsules 3 times per day. I was so surprised when she called me the next day and told me she felt 75% better just over night! Her congestion was almost gone overnight without a single side effect! So, fast forward to Christmas of 2012. The family was coughing and ill on Christmas. I started coming down with the flu. I was sneezing relentlessly, starting to get that itchy throat and coughing. I was determined not to be miserable. I took 2 Neem leaf capsules starting Christmas night before I went to bed. Symptoms were completely gone when I awoke. By noon, I was starting to get that scratchy throat again, so I decided to keep up with the Neem. I continued to take it 3 times a day for 3 days and I am happy to say that I never fully developed influenza. I think it could be a lifesaver for those who suffer from this nasty flu. Look it up. It's incredible and available from very prominent herb and vitamin companies
