When you mentioned the use of HYDROGEN PEROXIDE in a nebulizers for the EV-D68 virus, you were absolutely correct. I use it in my humidifier every night because I have Emphysema, can't sleep without it. It is better to explain to new comers about Hydrogen Peroxide that they need to use 35 percent FOOD GRADE HYDROGEN PEROXIDE TO BE DILUTED WITH SPRING WATER into their nebulizers, so they don't use the drugstore brand that has stabilizers in it and isn't strong enough. The best part is to put one ounce in a gallon of water into a COOL MIST VAPORIZOR, ONE WITH NO FILTER. USE ALL DAY AND NIGHT THROUGH THE HOUSE.....will not only help with the breathing of all.....it will kill the virus in the air and purify the air.
CURCUMIN is wonderful to take daily, will kill everything. It's a natural spice.
Thank you for this info. Does anyone know if hydrogen peroxide can be used in the humidifier of a cpap machine?
How much hydrogen peroxide do you use in the neti pot? Thanks for this article!
I have been using about 3/4 teaspoon of sea salt and an eyedropper full of hydrogen peroxide, which is about 1/4 teaspoon. I just put each in the neti-pot and fill with warm water.
The original Earth Clinic recipe calls for 6 ounces of water, 1 teaspoon sea salt and 1/2 teaspoon hydrogen peroxide, I believe.
My 16 year old son ended up with sinus issues from this virus we had. He actually requests the neti-pot because he has found it to be so helpful!

Where can you get a cool mist vaporizer?? I'm looking online and everything is for a steam vaporizer.... :/ Does the steam mess up the hydrogen peroxide? Thanks!
MC (Indiana), All drug stores & Walmart sell cool vaporizers (no filters, just plug in and they turn off when water level is low). You normally put a pinch or two of salt in them to encourage the misting. We use 2 or 3 in the house when the heat is always on, just to keep humidity up. Makes sleeping so much better. And when sick, these are really helpful. Now I'm going to follow the earthclinic recommendations to help my child's cold....
Infection with respiratory syncytial virus can be severe in some cases, especially in premature babies and infants with underlying health conditions. RSV can also become serious in older adults, adults with heart and lung diseases, or anyone with a very weak immune system (immunocompromised).

Very interested in using 35% Food grade Hydrogen Peroxide in vaporizer. I have serious COPD. Can find little info on this! I also read about those who use it in their nebulizer, but no specifics stated about that either. Can anyone help with these TWO questions?
- I know "distilled water" in Vaporizer, and take out filter. Amounts of Peroxide vary!?
- Also, how do I know if peroxide I buy is safe. Especially on Amazon?
Thanks in advance!
Respiratory Virus Remedies
In response to a couple of questions emailed to Earth Clinic regarding my respiratory virus remedies:
"3% hydrogen peroxide or the 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide?"
I am using 3% hydrogen peroxide (not straight, that would still be too strong) in the nebulizer - 5 drops of 3% hydrogen peroxide plus 35 drops of distilled water.
"No where on the label nor from the company does it state the nutribiotic C is non gmo.If you can prove this to me I will buy and they don't even state how much sugar there is in the product."
My bottle of Nutribiotic Electro-C states that it is "made without gluten or GMOs."
Ingredients are listed here:
Hope that helps!

I read your article on how you are treating respiratory problems, and was interested in your reference to Electro-C. I read up on it a bit, and received my order today. I usually take a water bottle with me in the car every day, and since we have RO water, I add minerals from several sources. I am excited to have to add only 1/4 t. to get not only a large dose of Vitamin C, but also small doses of five other minerals! Thank you! I know RO water is not recommended, but when we moved to Ohio, we could not get used to the smell or taste of the water, and we invested in the RO filter and we are living with that fairly costly choice. I feel that adding this supplement is an easy way get a healthy addition to our water, and I am thankful for your advice.
So glad the Electro C is working well for you!
I originally got it because of the other minerals. My husband and sons work outside a lot in the summer and sweat a lot..I was looking for a healthy solution for them to replace lost minerals in sweating.
By the way, I tried Nutribiotic's Hypo Aller C and did not care for it. I don't think it was a bad product, but it did not dissolve in water and tasted chalky.
I understand about the RO water...we have lived in some places with some pretty awful water, too!
