I was desperate to find something other than my rescue inhalers (7-8x/day), steriods, Adviar, Singulair, Albuterol nebulizer and whatever else I've tried throughout the 11 years since I was diagnosed with severe asthma and allergies.
I recently quit my job because my attacks had gotten so bad, I couldn't function. No health insurance, no money, I had to rely on friends' prescriptions, samples and $4 drugs from Walmart.
I found this just yesterday and tried the HP therapy in my nebulizer. INSTANLY no more wheezing - no more coughing! I was sure I had gone nuts. I got my first solid night's sleep in ages! I woke up this morning feeling better than I had in years. I will do it again every 2 hours and see how I am tomorrow, but this is so encouraging.
Thank you so much for this site. I will read everything I can find. I hope it lasts.
H2O2 Inhalation Therapy
Where do I begin to describe my journey into the ails of pulmonary distress? It all started years ago when my now 6-year old was a toddler at 2 and diagnosed with asthma. For close to five years she has been through all kinds of drugs, just treating the symptoms of her debilitating disease. She had it all, wheezing, shortness of breath, coughing with enormous amounts of phlegm lodged and trapped in her lungs. Before we had our nebulizer and the knowledge of how to use it, we would rush her to ER where they'd give her a breathing treatment (albuterol) and another 5-day dosage of steroid to eliminate her symptoms, which, nonetheless, still wouldn't completely dissipate. It has been an ongoing, horrific battle from the beginning. Who knows how she even got this disease as she was breastfed from birth to two whole years and genetically, asthma is not on my side of the family nor my husband's!
Our next bout with pulmonary issues presented with our 8-year old who, just last year, had pneumonia in both lungs and has had ongoing issues with sinusitis and dry cough in the winter.
The final blow came with our 2-year old, who for close to 4 months was getting what they first diagnosed as bronchiolitis, then the next month, bronchitis, then back to bronchiolitis and back and forth, back and forth, never being cured and certainly not even relieved from this horrible outcome for much longer than a week at a time. The doctor just kept prescribing more antibiotics and different ones every time only to have it return worse and more ferocious than the previous attacks. Her cough was so powerful it would make the capillaries in her face burst and she couldn't hold down much, due to the force of her coughing and inevitably, suffered cough-induced vomiting (or was it the drugs or the infection, who knows?). That on top of fever often reaching as high as 103.5 and consistent reoccurrence of her sicknesses, just pushed me over the edge. My child's doctor was now telling me they didn't think it was bacterial, but rather viral since the infection didn't respond long term to the antibiotics and kept coming back. The doctor then informed me that if it was something viral, there was nothing they could do and she'd have to wait it out or possibly, could suffer for the rest of her life! Now do you think a mother and lover of her offspring is going to sit back and listen to dooms day regarding the very apple of her eye? There was not another moment to waste with the medical community so I got to work researching every extra moment I could find to get to the bottom of something natural to deliver us all from everything, including the asthma and sinusitis. I came across some natural but costly remedies for asthma that I wouldn't be able to try unless I made the initial investment which I knew we couldn't do so I kept looking...
Low and behold, I finally found it here on Earth Clinic. I intuitively knew it was the answer but was scared out of my mind to use it because there's not much info on how to apply it to children directly on this site or any other which is unfortunate because I believe the majority of asthma sufferers are children and the number one killer of children worldwide is pneumonia! Therefore, from my now new knowledge, it makes sense that the Munro HP Inhalation method is THE number one remedy for all such lung sickness (asthma, pneumonia, bronchitis, bronchiolitis, etc.). I prayed and asked God to direct my paths as I knew I was embarking on something extraordinary but unknown and unfamiliar to me. In complete and utter desperation for a remedy to relieve my children, I pulled out my Walmart brand 3% hydrogen peroxide from Aaron Industries, diluted it 1 part HP to 3 parts purified water (bottled water) and poured from that solution the little amount needed into the nebulizer capsule. During a violent cough attack, I began with my baby who breathed very little and INSTANTANEOUSLY, her cough disappeared as if she never had it to begin with. I then began giving her regular and daily treatments (2-4 per day and as much as she'd breath in one hit which often wasn't a lot because she wouldn't tolerate it for too long) of this same solution and very quickly noticed her lungs being cleared and no fever flair ups. After approximately one week, she was miraculously cured of that blasted virus that wouldn't let go!!! I took her back to the doctor for her follow-up shortly thereafter, and the doctor checked her lungs with her stethoscope. The doc dropped her jaw to the floor because I don't believe she even thought my baby would have bounced back so soon. I then informed her that I had found a natural remedy that I wouldn't share with her since it's so outside of her box. She concurred and stated she did not want to know what it was but on the flipside, she encouraged me to continue it because it actually works! I then gently "fired" her because she wanted to prescribe my baby on a daily regiment of steroids in the form of Pulmicort Respules using the nebulizer which I had already been there and done that with her sister for all these years. I apprised this doc that I, mom, would now not only be handling my childrens' infections but their asthma care as well (how empowering is that?!). Simultaneously, I began these same treatments for my asthmatic 6-year old because she was experiencing continual dry cough that previously would take many days and drugs to see any relief from. Again, INSTANTANEOUSLY, her cough dissipated and she'd go straight back to bed, able to sleep through the rest of the entire night without further disturbance. This was unheard of for all the years that we have suffered with her; we've endured many sleepless and restless nights. Now, whenever she coughs at night from her asthma, she gets what we dubbed 'natural nebulizer' and she really raves about it, no more racing heart and shakes from the after-effects of albuterol. For my 8-year old, the natural nebulizer initially helped her cough out some mucous but I prescribed her some ACV (regular, store-bought) in her juice every day and a lot of tea with honey which seemed to help her situation with sinusitis out even more. In a couple of weeks, she also was completely cleaned and cleared up.
For me personally, I started my menstrual cycle and began to experience my usual, incredibly painful headache. I wouldn't say a migraine but something close to it. I thought, why not, it'd be better than popping another pill (acetaminophen) with the potential of vomiting as has occurred to me in the past. I began our natural nebulizer treatments but upped the HP dosage a bit for myself and viola, my headaches disappeared instantaneously too and the treatments really made my heavy, achy body feel light and unloaded again. I began every two hours for up to two days and then experienced what I think could have been a cleansing but I'm not sure. I don't know if it was a cleansing because I normally get severe diarrhea at the onset of my menstruation. All I know is my stomach cramped up really bad and I could feel something fighting in there. The stool I passed would most certainly have been diarrhea as always in the past, but actually came out solid, though still soft. It was simply unbelievable! I felt 100% after that until later that night when my whole body ached and that nasty headache came firing back. I snuck downstairs so as not to awake my husband and took a natural nebulizer treatment which drove away the headache and enabled me to sleep through the rest of the night like a baby. The aches in my body left along with the headache and I was convinced that HP and I will never be apart again! There's a new one (remedy) for PMS. Currently, I only use these natural nebulizer treatments for dire necessities for myself and baby but more regularly on my asthmatic as she needs the maintenance. Thank you for hosting this site which I now visit daily to learn as much as I can. Thank you to all who contribute their input because we're all learning and growing together through the good and the bad knowing that 'all things work together for the good'
I just have a question for Ted in regard to the issue with hydrogen peroxide, used over a period of time, is it true that it erodes red blood cells as stated in the erroneous article about the South Carolina woman with MS who was injected with it IV? Can you address the red blood cell issue on that as I now understand that she died of the drugs NOT the HP treatments but would still like more info regarding the red blood cell issue.
Also, from my experience in dealing with small children especially, it is of critical importance that the HP inhalation method solution be diluted down considerably as they will not tolerate any stinging to their throat. As reported, I found the diluted solution to still do wonders for my children. Another side bar: I believe in treating children with the HP inhalation method, one should consider using a nebulizer machine instead of a spray bottle, the vapor is finer and more tolerable instead of just a mist and it's easier for them to handle the whole breathing in and out motion because the machine does so much more for them. I know in my state if a child is diagnosed with asthma, a doctor is legally bound to order the machine for them which will be delivered to your door free of charge. The reason for this being that sometimes asthma attacks are so acute that without this home treatment tool, one could die before arriving to a hospital so it is a liability issue for the doctor. My suggestion for those without this machine that are not able to pay for one is to take your child to the doctor and if not already diagnosed with asthma, get an asthma diagnosis and request that the doctor "fill a prescription" by ordering you a nebulizer machine. Just be sure not to disclose if you plan on using it as a natural nebulizer versus the nemesis (i.e. albuterol). I am not advocating dumping out your albuterol as I still keep some in case of emergencies but as far as using our natural nebulizer treatments for my asthmatic, so far so good as we have not had the need since for anything in our cupboard full of asthma-related drugs.
Another way I began using hydrogen peroxide since my discovery here is for my hair. I found the method described by someone on this site of putting the HP into your shampoo and shaking it up to clean your hair a little too harsh on my scalp. Instead, being a dirty blonde, I prefer the method of spraying straight 3% on my hair after a shower, while wet, and brushing it all the way through. This method has brightened my hair considerably, and my husband believes it looks better than a $300.00 professional color treatment. I am now back to a bouncing blonde, natural and highlighted looking instead of that chemical, bleached look. I just turned 40 two days ago and now look again closer to 30 thanks to that invaluable substance, hydrogen peroxide.
Anyway, I better try to keep this under 2000 words but I have been boosted, encouraged and empowered by the information that originated on this site. Thanks again for a job well done!

H2O2 Inhalation Therapy
Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation Therapy. I had a terrible bout with Asthma last weekend and couldn't breathe without wheezing. Albuterol wasn't helping, even the kind using my nebulizer. I got no sleep last night and couldn't go to work today, I was so exhausted from the effort just to breathe. I got online and went to Earth clinic and did a search on Asthma. I saw the Hydrogen Peroxide inhalation and tried it. I can now breathe without wheezing. I am so glad to find something affordable as my asthma meds are so expensive, even WITH insurance! I am hoping that tonight I will be able to actually lay downn in bed instead of sitting up all night on the couch because of the wheezing and coughing. The cough isn't gone yet, but as I am at home today I plan on nebulizing with Hydrogen Peroxide several times today. Thank you for providing this forum. I will also try this method with ACV today and see what my results are.
I have grown up with severe asthma and while in the hospital for a collapsed lung, I decided to read up on the long term effects of using Advair. After my reading, I decided to wean myself from this prescription and focus on exercise and diet changes, which within a month I didn't use my Advair nor Albuterol. Until I had a reaction to my girlfriends dog last Christmas. I just couldn't breath so I rushed back to my Dr and the albuterol....and after a month, I backed away completely. Until tonight when I went to my now fiance's parents house....with the same dog. I am going add Apple Cider Vinegar to my diet, but since I didn't have any at home, I pulled out the honey. Added several teaspoons to a 1/4 cup of water and heated it up in the microwave for a nice Honey Steamer. It put me at ease for about 30 minutes. I was comfortable enough to try another suggestion from this site...so I just cut up a large Florida lemon and ate it, adding a little bit of the juice to my honey water...hmmm I am now breathing again, I think I will finally go to bed (6am)I think I might eat another lemon for breakfast.
Hi, I am a frequent visitor of this site and has learnt a lot from here. My son was diagnosed with asthma at the age of 5 and his case was so aggressive that his doctor gave him oral, nasal and as well liquid steroid, when I asked him what about my son's immune system after taking all these steroids he said forget about his immune system, he has to take steroids all his life.I prayed to Allah to help me in that situation, after prayers and trials and errors I came up with these things. In winters I keep Chanca Piedra and at the very first sign of asthma I give him that and he gets a good night sleep and most of the time it stops completely, I give for a week and then stop it, but if the attack is really bad I nebulize him with 3% H2O2 and rub clove oil with some olive oil on his chest. If he gets fever I take a towel and put a lot of 3% H2O2 on it and start rubbing on his body starting from his souls all the way up to his stomach and chest with all this he gets a good night sleep. Now it has been 4 years since he is off from steroids, antibiotics which he used to take every month and even from tylenol.
Now to get rid of it permanently I will use Iodine and turpentine oil. When I will do that I will post a second reply. Asthma is purely from fungus and mycotoxins. Thanks
After going thru countless posts including older posts from Ted, I decided to give HP therapy a try.
Here in the Houston area, I couldn't find 35% FGHP but, was able to find 3% FGHP mixed with distilled water at Whole Foods. I continued to reduce the percentage to 1/2 to 1 percent (with more distilled water) and added 5ml to my nebulizer.
This method of treatment has started to clear my lungs. One thing I have discovered: when I do a neb treatment at night, I must go to bed immediately afterwards. This will allow me to get a sound nights sleep, waking up feeling refreshed, no matter how short the night. If I take the treatment and wait 15-20 minutes, I am awake the majority of the night.
I take the neb treatment morning and night. Ted has spoken about a small amount of Baking Soda added to the HP will further improve on the HP's effectiveness, so I will be adding a 1/4 teaspoon to the full bottle mixture (1/2 oz. 3% HP and 5. 5 oz. Distilled water). I will update in a month.

I was suffering from Asthma for the past 10 years. Before taking 35% Hydrogen Peroxide food grade, I can't walk up to 50 meters and felt very exhausted and breathed heavily.
4 months ago, after reading the forums from Earth Clinic, I started taking 35% Hydrogen Peroxide fg. Begin with 1 drop until reached 6 drops, 2 times /day, I did not increase the dosage because I don't have time to do it everyday. Sometimes I stop for 1 or 2 days a week due to work schedule.
Incredible things happen, now I can run for 50 meters and walk for hours. Though it is still not fully cured yet, but I am happy now, and will continue taking it as what I have done, hopefully, I will get cured from Asthma any time soon.
I recommend to friends the beautiful things about 35% Hydrogen Peroxide fg. The response is very excited, more and more friends go for alternative treatment. This not only save a lot of money but see the results quite fast.
As a mother with a son with severe asthma who was always in and out of the hospital with life threating problems. Taking the typical treatments that never seemed to work completely. I began desperately looking in different avenues for help for him. My son is a married man with 3 children, and I was contstantly worried he would not live to see his children grown.
A little over a year ago my son got pneumonia (which he got yearly) this time it was worse nothing was working for him. Some how I started reading about hydrogen peroxide food grade and the many benefits it has had on many people I went and bought the HP gave him a paper on how to use it internally, he also put it in a cool mist humidifier at night when he sleep 1oz food grade HP to a gallon of distilled water, and he used it in his nebulizer, I am here to tell you it cured his pneumonia completely he has not entered a hospital in over a year he can actually function as a real person again his asthma is under control and he preaches about this to everyone. This was so miraculous for him and everyone who knows him cannot believe what it has done for him.. We are praising God for this. I wanted to share this with others becasue this is one of the sites I learned about HP thank you for your testimonies it helped my son. He of course still take HP by mouth and continues to use it in his nebulizer and humidifier
God Bless, Phyllis
I received a request for more information on an infrared light. It is a 125 watt clear front infrared light, a heat lamp, available at hardware stores for about $4. You also need to purchase an aluminum shade with a clamp for about $5 so you can clamp it onto a chair or where ever it is convenient. It is often used for thawing water pipes or hatching eggs. A 250 watt light is too hot and is generally used for a bathroom ceiling fixture. This past Saturday night I had a return of asthma symptoms with a cold. This was the first time in three years after being treated 3 months with Zithromax. I was very discouraged because I would have to get to the emergency room before bedtime or I would be in big trouble. I envisioned being back on inhalers and steroids. I had an uncontrollable cough from a tickle in the upper side of my chest, the point of lymphatic congestion. I had used the light on my son who is now 7 but at that time I was on Zithromax so never had a need to use it on myself for asthma. I used the light all Friday night [about five feet away]. It stopped my cough in about 60 seconds which is much faster than a nebulizer. Saturday I went out of town for a family reunion and brought my light but didn't use it until late afternoon when I started to get worse. By the time we left for home I was not coughing but still anticipating getting worse as soon as I went to bed. I fell asleep and never woke up! I don't know if it helps asthma caused by allergy but for asthma brought on by a virus it is miraculous. I continue to use it for my son if he has any congestion which is only when he has a cold and it must be used at least an hour. It can be used all night if needed. Just place it several feet away and wear an eye mask to block the light so you can sleep. Don't cook yourself but if you are awake you can have it closer, whatever is not too hot. A researcher, Ray Peat, told me about it. I have not seen anything specific in writing. He also told me to wear light colored clothing because infrared rays from the sun penetrate light colors. I changed my son's and my wardrobe. I now wear light colored coats and sweaters etc even in the winter.
Hello Earth Clinic,
I have been reading this website for years and have discovered many wonderful cures over the years. This is really the best resource for natural cures for everything!
I had childhood asthma that went away around the age of 10-12. I always had rescue inhalers and had about one asthma attack per year usually from exposure to animal dander but I didn't consider it a problem. When I was pregnant with my daughter at the age of 29 the asthma came back. I figured it was just a symptom of pregnancy and would go away. When she was born the asthma actually got worse and my doctor put me on the daily prevention inhaler as well as my rescue inhaler. I've never been one to take medications not even aspirin for headaches because I go on this website first and follow the advice I find here.
I'm posting this because I tried many of the cures for asthma here and nothing worked, but I've finally been asthma free for 2 weeks by starting Dr. Brownstein's Iodine Protocol. When I asked my doctor why my asthma would get worse during pregnancy and after the birth and then a LONG time after birth as well he just said "pregnancy does weird things to your body". It makes me so angry that he wouldn't test my hormone and thyroid levels at that point knowing that I had a pregnancy (or hormonal) related issue. I have symptoms of hyper and hypothyroidism but I don't fit into either category. From research online I've found that this points to hashimoto's so I started to look for cures for hashimoto's instead of curing my asthma, because as I discovered asthma is a symptom of hashimoto's.
From the first or second day that I started the iodine protocol I didn't need either of my inhalers anymore. I still get a bit of tightness in my chest but not enough to take my rescue inhaler. I'm shocked sometimes when I take a deep breath expecting lots of wheezing but all I get is a huge amount of air!
If you want to try this I would suggest that you read Dr. Brownstein's iodine book because it is a very specific amount of certain supplements being Iodine, Selenium, Vit C and Magnesium and you slowly increase your dosage of Iodine because it can cause detox reactions. It makes me wonder if asthma isn't just a Iodine or Selenium deficiency? I was taking Vitamin C and magnesium before the iodine and still having asthma so I don't think it's a vit c or magnesium deficiency.
You'll want to read the book because there's also a huge iodine controversy with some doctors prescribing it without the selenium which makes thyroid issues worse, then other doctors tell their patients to stay away from it including natural sources such as seaweed even though it's the one thing that the patient really needs.
I know this is a long post but I hope this info helps even just one person who is suffering from asthma.
Vitamin K2 MK7 + Vitamin D3 + Zinc cures Asthma!
My son had 3 severe asthma crisis that led us to emergency, and many others that were administered at home through glucocorticoids, butheyko method and other things.
K2 MK7 suplementation started my son was in the middle of an crisis. The crisis was quickly reverted.
Now after 3 months of taking at least 400mcg K2 + 2000ui D3 + 50mg zinc 4 to 7 days a week, his is far away from an asthma crisis and his skin is slowly recovering to a completely healthy state.
It takes time until the calcium spread through the body to be catch by Vitamin k2. High doses of K2 have no toxicity recorded on rats, but it *must* come with higher doses of D3 and other related nutrients.Si
Researchers have found the cure for asthma and it is an ostheoporosis medicine! https://www.cardiff.ac.uk/news/view/96649-researchers-hugely-exciting-asthma-discovery
Basically what they discovered is that asthma is linked to the Calcium metabolism.
99% of the calcium is present in bones and teeths. Anywhere else Calcium is present it causes problems: vascular deterioration that causes heart and brain problems, artritis when it goes to articulations, wrinkles when it goes to the skin, etc.
But nature have its natural Calcium GPS called Vitamin K2 MK7! Vitamin D3 absorbs calcium in the intestin to the blood, but it is K2 that takes it from the blood to the right place: bones and teeths.
The first asthma symptom is a result of the accumulation of calcium in the periphery of the body: the skin. Years before the first asthma crisis almost always there is a strong dermatitis resulting from calcium accumulation.
Then years later that calcium will end in vital organs like lungs causing bronchospasm and alkalosis in the blood.
And that is why the Buteyko method is so effective against asthma: it work with the alkalized blood by excess calcium blood calcium.
K2 MK7 is a very rare nutrient nowadays, even harder to find in a vegetatian diet (although this diet can also be lower on calcium). K2 MK7 metabolism is related to many other nutrients but mostly D3 and Zinc. If those any are also deficient, K2 MK7 won't be able to do its job.

A kelp tablet a day plus a brazil nut, for me, provided the cure to my asthma. The combination of the iodine in the kelp added to the rich source of selenium in the brazil nut did the trick, and I have now been free of asthma symptoms for three years; following a period of having asthma for some seven years previously.
For the last 12 months, I have found that when I am on a keto diet I am able to completely control my asthma and even eat some broccoli, cabbage etc, however, if I slip up and fall out of keto my asthma will come straight back. The keto diet controls some of the major inflammatory mechanisms affecting the lungs. Finding this out has been a major relief for me and the keto diet can be very satisfying once you get around the learning curve a bit. I hope you or somebody else finds this to be helpful. Cheers Ralph
This was told to me by a Medicine Man from the Hopi tribe, Take a lemon and slice it into quarters, inhale the smell of the lemon a couple of times, then if you can stand it eat some of the lemon, rind and all, (it's not bad). Then drink a glass of water. Something in lemons and the rind greatly reduces symptoms of asthma.
