Learn how Earth Clinic readers used hydrogen peroxide inhalation therapy to treat symptoms of COVID-19.

Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation was first introduced to the world on Earth Clinic over 15 years ago by Bill Munro of Michigan. Mr. Munro, who died at the rip age of 90, used his delivery method for over 30 years to treat virus symptoms, prostate issues, lung issues, and more.

We had the great honor of speaking with Bill Munro a few times over the years after we published his remedy on Earth Clinic in 2004.  He was very passionate about this remedy and literally spoke to hundreds of people on the phone about his remedy before his death in 2012.

Learn more about Bill and how to do his H2O2 Inhalation Method here.

Keep reading below to learn how Earth Clinic readers used peroxide either in a nasal spray, a nebulizer, or drops in distilled water, to treat coronavirus symptoms.

Please let us know if you've used the hydrogen peroxide inhalation method for COVID-19 symptoms and if it helped or not!

Sorry for late response to the person who asked me about nebulizing with peroxide. I REGULARLY use nebulizer with hydrogen peroxide as follows:

it is commonly recommended that one use 1% HP food grade, which I also follow. The dilution is very simple. You put 1 part of HP3% into a container, and add 2 parts of pure water. Then you get 1% HP! If you have 35% of HP food grade, just 1 part of HP35% to 34 parts of pure water(total 35 parts) to make 1% food grade. Please be careful only to use pure/distilled water. The nebulizer & ultrasonic humidifier shoot tiny water particle as as a fog these are nothing but small water particles, never steam, therefore they carry all the contents of water. The unpure water do carry all the impurities including those metallic contents. I never recommend RO, "purified" water.

  • Put some into your nebulizer.
  • Breath the steam into your lung thru NOSE(if you do into mouth, it may irritate you until you are well used to it, esp. with 1%, lower % is more pleasant. But you will get use to it). I do this for any minutes up to 5. I don't count # of breaths, I use regular/natural breath, no particular tricks. If I feel like I could easily hold it for a while. All I care about is time.
  • I do this whenever I feel slight sign of cold/flu/COVID-19?? :) :) ... in my chest/lung. Whatever disease that was bugging me simply disappears. This does not mean I use one single session of nebulizing. I do it multiple session until I feel very good. These singlet oxygen atoms generated from HP are powerful enemies to these germs.
  • I always have this nebulizer next to my bed and do it regularly just to kill any infections including COVID-19. I do not believe they have any chance against me. Killing bugs in my lung, breathing channel is the most directly way of killing these shits.

I always maintain bottle of MMS, CDH, CDS to back up. With these 2 soldiers, I could defeat any lung disease at all. All I need is "persistence".

Simple and cheap solutions are my favorite.

Dr. Thomas Levy (Vitamin C expert) suggests using regular water from the faucet. I do agree that distilled or purified water is better if you have it. I would think that would also prolong the life of the nebulizer.

Thank you for your input - I was worried about distilled water as I think I read somewhere in an article by Joseph Mercola that distilled water could have some kind of detrimental effect on the lungs but can't find anything else to support that. I am doing saline (homemade) and H2O2 (food grade). So far, so good.

I am a DJ and before COVID-19 I would constantly be at events with hundreds of people. I was reading this and got the thought of making the hydrogen peroxide solution and inserting it in an oxidizer that's can spread the gas throughout the environment providing a clean environment so people would not be required to wear masks. I was wondering if this is a far fetched idea and there are other variables such as how big does the oxidizer have to be so ever person can breathe in the peroxide solution, also it gets hot when all those people get together, will that effect the effectiveness of the oxidized peroxide, also how long will it need to be on because it is not directly being inhaled through the nebulizer?

Hello everyone. I have used hydrogen peroxide since 1989 in several different ways.

They are:

1. Oral - low dose - diluted with plenty of water.

2. Skin absorption in bath water.

3. Absorption through the bottom of your feet.

4. By adding some to a humidifier.

Around 1990, I recall 3 people with Emphysema telling me at the time that they applied a hydrogen peroxide gel to their feet each day and it healed and reversed their Emphysema.

Recently, I had a chronic low level sinus and lung infection that has lasted for over 6 months that I blame on my addiction to ice cream. I decided to apply regular 3% H2O2 solution to a large wash cloth and stand on it with my bare feet for 5 minutes.

Specifically, I used a 10 or 12 inch square piece of aluminum foil and set it on the floor (a cookie sheet would also work). I then take a large wash cloth - about 10 inches square and rise it out with warm tap water. I place the warm wet cloth on top of the metal foil or pan and pour about 1/4 cup of 3% hydrogen peroxide over the wash cloth. Then, I either sit on a chair and place both my bare feet on the wash cloth or I stand it. I look at my watch and wait 5 minutes. When done, I lift my feet away and let them air dry. The result is that the hydrogen peroxide that is absorbed through my feet travels up to my lungs and throughout my body.

It breaks up the mucus in the lungs and it is easily spit out. The benefits last for 12 to 24 hours or more. I believe this method is not only safe but reduces the need to use the H2O2 in a nebulizer or even taking it orally. My breathing improves very quickly. Chest tightness goes away and you are able to take deep breaths without straining.

I think this method of using hydrogen peroxide topically by absorption through the bottom of the feet would benefit anyone with pneumonia, Covid 19, chest colds, TB, sinus infections, and COPD. I would like to hear what other think after trying this simple method. I find normal breathing and clear lungs after treatment once a day for 5 days.

Disclaimer Note- I am not a doctor, but I would like to hear from others who try this method of absorbing H2O2.

Ok folks. As a nurse, I'm currently on the front lines of this virus and how I keep myself from getting it is as follows:

A) 1/2 teaspoon of 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide added to 1 teaspoon of filtered water.

B) Add the above to a nebulizer cup chamber. Be sure to use a face mask that covers your mouth and nose

C) Nebulize for five minutes every time you get exposed.

My routine involves once before work and once right when I get home. At lunch I take the same mixture above (4x the amount) and place into a nasal bottle. I squirt my nose and mouth once at lunch time. The corona virus breaks down at less than 0.5% h202 strength so the above recipe works well. At the first sign of cold, flu, bronchitis, pneumonia the above 4X a day for several days.

Share this with others. It works - turn off the tv....juice, exercise, laugh. - don't get stressed - be empowered.

Hi Joanne, Thank you for sharing this. I have been using this treatment with success as well every time I have a sore throat or seem to be developing a cough. Question- are there any doctors using this treatment that you know of and are there any peer-reviewed studies citing the use of this treatment for any type of infection whether bacterial or viral? Thank you!

Hi Tracy,

Here is an excellent presentation by Dr. Thomas Levy, MD of the Riordan Clinic (IV Vitamin C and other functional treatments). He presents many research studies, plus clinical outcomes, on nebulizing 3% Hydrogen Peroxide for any virus including Covid. Its a bit long (2 hours) but well worth it. The presentation is from June 2020 at the Silicon Valley Health Institute.

In addition to Nebulized Hydrogen Peroxide, he also discusses other virus treatments such as:
- IV Vitamin C
- Far Infrared Sauna
- Ozone (blood treatments or ultraviolet blood eradiation)
- Low-Dose Radiotherapy

Nebulized HP for Covid is a game changer and needs to be shared widely. Check it out and decide for yourself.

H Joanne,

As you are a nurse, I'd like to ask please if you would consider it safe for someone with asthma? I do have a nebuliser which I use only with Salmeterol to open my airways, when I have a viral infection. As my “tubes” are inflamed, of course I easily react adversely to things. Obviously concerned about Covid 19 too! Thank you, C. 🙂

Here is an effective treatment for coronavirus or any other virus causing a respiratory infection.

I believe I had this virus in late January but not realize what it was until weeks later, when I began reading about coronavirus symptoms.

Several days after flying home from SFO (complete with non-stop coughing coming from the seat behind me), I experienced sore throat, chills, dry cough, body aches/fatigue and a low-grade temperature. What was unusual (for me) is that my sinuses never seemed affected.

Again, not initially suspecting anything more than a regular cold or flu, here is what I did: I gargled with warm salt water several times a day. Ingested ascorbic acid (Vit C) plus oregano oil capsules several times a day. Greased chest, back and throat with Ben-gay and/or tiger balm. and “huffed” drug store hydrogen peroxide several times a day. [I followed the H2o2 inhalation instructions listed elsewhere on the EC site.]

My symptoms began on a Monday and 3-days later on Thursday, I experienced massive sweats during the night and began feeling better with a full recovery within a week.

However, it was unlike any virus or flu I had previously experienced in my long life. Although my age puts me in the higher-risk group, I am fully recovered, feeling fine, but observing all the recommended precautions.

Hopefully, at some point, I can be tested for antibodies to confirm whether or not it was a coronavirus. Meanwhile, I wanted to share what worked for me in case it may be helpful for someone else.

PS Because I take at least one Tablespoon every day as part of my daily regimen, I failed to mention earlier that I upped my intake of organic ACV (with mother) to 1 T. several times a day to loosen any mucous and assure a healthy gut.

Greetings, My husband and I being seniors have been on an anti viral protocol for the last 6 weeks. 1 tablespoon of colloidal silver, oregano oil or caps, zinc, vit c, vit d, lysine. For mucus and congestion - Jack's emphysema tea recipe from this site -mullein and lobelia. I also run the vaporizer with distilled water and food grade h2o2 every other day. Do not use store bought h2o2 with tap water as the minerals and chemicals might cause harm!!!! Astalgus, cherry bark, and dry brushing lymph gland are always a good idea. Please keep your ph at 7 or more. by alkalizing with lemon or lime and 1/4 tsp of baking soda. Chanca Piedra will help keep virus from replicating.

I'd go with this hydrogen peroxide protocol:

And I'd augment the above with black-cherry products, such as black-cherry-concentrate, and cherry-yogurt.


I would avoid extreme acids or anything pungent, such as garlic, ginger and even "C", since cherry is superior for reasons stated in above link, and extreme foods can cause allergic reactions which people might confuse with coronavirus. I'd try to stick to lysine foods (which boost immunity) such as eggs, yogurts, veggies & so forth. I'd minimize arginine foods such as citrus, dark-chocolate etc.

After all, if high-arginine can trigger cold-sore viruses, why wouldn't they also replicate other viruses such as CV? Better to be on the safe side.

I disagree with your view on the benefits of high dosage IVC (intravenousvitamin C). It is not a rumour. It works.

This is very important information directly out of the doc's mouth ( without the virus! Haha): These three are from Dr. Richard Cheng, Shanghai, China (in English)

This one is from a New Zealand doctor who saved the life of a dairy farmer who contracted the Swine Flu in Fiji, 2013, from the same type of Vitamin C drip:

I inhale vapors of highly diluted non-toxic Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide to prevent or stop the exponential replication of Covid 19 or any other microscopic pathogen. I dilute it with a lot of distilled water. I will do this as a precaution when I return home from shopping.

Do you have to dilute it or can you use it straight 3%

What strength is your H202? 3 percent or other?

The best way to get oxygen into your blood stream outside the lungs would be through the skin the biggest organ we have. Bathe in 3% Hydrogen Peroxide for 20 minutes will raise blood /oxygen levels.

[Virus Inactivation by Hydrogen Peroxide]

[Article in Russian] R Mentel', R Shirrmakher, A Kevich, R S Dreĭzin, I Shmidt

The effect of H2O2 on adenovirus types 3 and 6, adenoassociated virus type 4, rhinoviruses 1A, 1B, and type 7, myxoviruses, influenza A and B, respiratory syncytial virus, strain Long, and coronavirus strain 229E was studied in vitro, using different H2O2 concentration and timec of exposure. H2O2 in a 3 percent concentration inactivated all the viruses under study within 1–30 min. Coronavirus and influenza viruses were found to be most sensitive. Reoviruses, adenoviruses and adenoassociated virus were relatively stable. H2O2 is a convenient means for virus inactivation.

I've been reading earthclinic comments and recommendations for years, but I've never commented on anything. I just read a study on hydrogen peroxide 3% on multiple viruses including Coronavirus. In 1-30 min, the h2o2 had inactivated all of the viruses. The tests were done in vitro, but that didn't stop me from using the hydrogen peroxide inhalation on my flu/ virus.

I did not get tested to see what I had, but all of a sudden I could not breathe. I couldn't walk to my kitchen or bathroom without gasping for air. I did not go to get tested because I immediately tried the h2o2 inhalation.

I used 3% food grade in a cleaned out sinus mister and sprayed in the back of my throat when I inhaled. Be careful not to swallow if you try this; spit out what you don't inhale.

In minutes I was spitting out white gunk.

Within two days, I was breathing almost 100%. Because I used this right away, I'm not exactly sure what virus I had.

The study showed that Coronavirus and influenza were the most sensitive to the h2o2. Even if I did NOT have Coronavirus, this method should be used or attempted on those who do test positive unless they have other issues that would cause further harm with this attempt. For those who are dying from Coronavirus who are elderly or have weakened immune systems, what is the harm? This may save lives. I want to know why others haven't tried this already.
