Mullein tea for asthma and COPD:
On a daily basis I take OACV [organic apple cider vinegar] with a pinch of cayenne pepper and the juice of 1 whole lemon.
In addition to this I recently added 1.5 Ltr bottle of Volvic water with a half teaspoon of borax. The reason I chose Volvic water is because it seems to be the only water with 32mg silica per Ltr (it states it on the bottle). I can't find any other water containing silica.
In addition to this I make 1 Ltr of Mullein tea in my cafeteria, which has a fine filter needed to separate floaters in the tea, which I sweeten with raw honey.
Since adding these recent additions to my daily intake of health remedies I have stopped using Ventolin and DuoResp Spiromax inhalers because I no longer wheeze and cough up daily dollops of phlegm. Also and perhaps more importantly, my BPH problems have noticeably decreased. I no longer need to urgently find a toilet when I feel like a pee and I now sleep all night without getting up to pee several times during the night.
I have purposely waited for a month before coming on here to tell you in case it was a fluke, but I don't think it is because I feel so well and everything works as it should (and I mean everything).
The Mullein tea I buy online and I use 2 tablespoons full (heaped) per litre. I drink a mug of it after my OACV mix and drink the rest during the day. I make the brew in the evening and leave it for use the next morning so it has infused all night.
I use a gym and swimming pool 3 times a week and I am 78 years old this year.
Specialist said I had c, p, o, d, could not stop coughing or get any sleep / lungs were full of dust / was on a puffer and pills. I went on h202, 1 drop in water or juice in morning, 1 more in afternoon and added one drop each day up to 25 drops twice a day / I'm 85 yrs old do not have c, p.o, d. any more.
I mix I ounce of h 202 / food grade 35 % hyd, peroxide with 11 ounces of water /distilled/. Also use q tip put some in each ear some up each nostril. I have not had flu or even a cold in 5 years.
Hi Freda, I do not know just how much proof you require, or how much research you have done, or if you have even used H202. Frankly, though I do not really much care because there will always be people such as yourself who want PROOF!, proof for this, proof for that. You most likely spend all your time searching for proof rather getting down and applying any methods to really help yourself.
For those of us, and there are many who have used and use H202 therapy for our Copd Emphysema, this therapy is a godsend, I myself have used both the drinking method and the inhalation method for some years now and the change in my condition is very apparent not only to myself but to all my friends and family and I am grateful that I possessed the open mind to go searching for ways to improve my condition. I did not go on a close minded journey looking for proof! Thus wasting time which I didn't have to waste, I became a doer, I saw what others were doing and achieving success and I wanted that, if you want proof there are so many people out there who can give you that, But when it all comes down to it Freda why should anyone try and convince you, or anyone of anything. Waste of time in my book because there will always be those just like yourself who require evidence, proof of everything, but in the meantime everything just gets worse. There is no proof that you will even wake up tomorrow morning. For me, I have a better chance of that happening with my H202 daily regimen than not. So bottom line Freda, keep on with your search for "Proof" we are all here, and we are the proof!
This cured mine and my husband's cousin who had COPD:
So here is the recipe for “OMG I Can't Breath”:
- Take the peel and as much of the thick white pith as you can get off of two Grapefruits (preferably Organic if not rinse them well underwater prior to peeling)
- Place your peels and pith in a small pot that has a good fitting unvented lid.
- Cover with just enough distilled water to cover the peelings. (You will need to push them down to get this measurement because they will float as you add the water). Use ONLY distilled water. The fluoride and other toxic chemicals in tap water will concentrate when boiled and you do not want to ingest that crud!
- Put the lid on the pot and put on med-high heat just until it starts to boil, then reduce it to a low simmer.
- Let it simmer for 2 full hours. ***DO NOT TAKE THE LID OFF A SINGLE TIME DURING THE TWO HOURS! It helps to have a pot with a glass lid so you are certain when it reaches a boil and need to turn it down. The lid acts as a distilling device getting the concentrated liquids back into your pot.
- After 2 hours remove it from the heat and let it cool to close to room temperature. Now you can remove the lid.
- Strain the liquid into a glass jar that has a lid for storing it in the refrigerator.
- Take 1 Table Spoon (15 mls) every 2 hours until symptoms subside.
My pulse ox was 95% when I took my first dose and within 45 minutes it was an easy 98% and I literally felt like I was breathing for the first time in weeks. Within 15 minutes of taking it you begin to cough up a lot of stuff and your lungs clear quickly.
By the way, NEVER EVER EVER swallow anything you cough up at any time in life…always get a tissue or go outside and spit. Your lungs push out things that do not belong there and you do not need to introduce that bacteria into your digestive tract to cause more trouble in your body.
My mom is 85 and has asthma and copd for 20 years now. Both started getting worse the last couple years and I could tell the docs couldn't or wouldn't do much to help her. I discovered in my research on youtube that peppermint tea and organic raw honey when drunk daily will clear mucus from lungs. She started using these two simple remedies 6 months ago & her doc told her after 4 months of drinking this that her lungs were clear of mucus. For the first time in years, she (doc) heard no wheezing or rattling noise.
My mom drinks a cup in the morning and later in the day. Whenever she feels like a cold or something is coming on, she doubles the tea bags and honey for safe measures, and so far, praise God, it seems to help war off intruders.
To Start with, the UK has put a ban on 35% Food Grade H2O2, with a two year prison sentence if you are found in possession.You can only purchase the 35% FGH2O2 with a government license.
On visiting South Africa, I freely bought it and the distilled water to take the dosage as laid down in Bill's book. I managed to get as far as 22 drops in 12 fl.ozs (UK) of distilled water. That was on day 14 of the schedule. I had to quit as I kept throwing up, later I found out why, it is very hard to know when your stomach is completely empty, because at this high dose, the stomach must be completely empty. However not to be put off completely, I reduced the 35% down to 3% with distilled water 11 to 1 total 12, 11 being distilled water and 1 the 3%.
I am using an altrasonic nebulizer ( Beurer IH 40 ). The best thing I ever bought, it is almost silent, so it can be used at night without disturbing your partner. My oxygen transfer reading had dropped from 98 to 95 in less than 6 months, before I started the inhaling treatment. I am pleased to say that my readings have improved back to 98/99. I started the treatment with 10 minutes 3 times a day, for 10 days, then I increased the time to 15 minutes 3 times day, for 10 days, I am now on 15 minutes 4 times a day.
I have informed my doctor and COPD nurse of my actions, they were both astonished when I presented the benefits of FG H2O2.They had no answer to my actions. I told them I had stopped taking my inhalers, I don't need them. I will continue until August 2016, then I will have a comparison check up of January 2016. I have read most of the comments here on this site. I sleep up to 10 hours without any problem, and get up at 6 am twice a week to go fishing, I can still lug my fishing gear around, although I do get out of breathe, however my recovery time is getting better by the week.
I am 62 years old and have had asthma since I was 3 years old. For the past 15 years or so I have had multiple bouts of pneumonia and bronchitis. One bout of pneumonia lasted for 5 months and the bronchitis usually lasts for 2 to 3 months. Recently I was diagnosed with COPD, never smoked, never experienced second hand smoke. I have been using albuterol inhalers for 45 years or so. Started inhaled steroids 30 years ago. Was put on nebulizer steroids to use with my usual does of nebulizer albuterol and Advair 500/50.
In researching my options, I found the idea of using DMSO and Colloidal Silver in a nebulizer. I mix 7 cc of Colloidal Silver, 3 cc DMSO, 3 cc distilled water. This mix lasts me for 6 treatments, plus a little. I do three or four treatments a day with 2 cc of my mixed solution. When I started the Silver/DMSO treatments I stopped ALL of my asthma COPD meds. I have used my inhaler once. I have been doing this new regimen for 4 days. The phlegm is slowly coming up. I feel better than I have in months. I have an appt. with my GP next week. I hope he hears better lung sounds. My next apt with my Pulmonologist is next month. I will try to repost as time goes on.
I was diagnosed with copd in 2012. I am 56 and have smoked since I was 16. I now take advair, a rescue inhaler, nebulized albuterol and am on continuous 2L of oxygen 24/7. Its been a long time since I've had a good breath. I discovered this site about 3 or 4 months ago and decided to try the dmso, msm and colloidal silver.
First I put 1/2 teaspoon of dmso mixed with 1/2 teaspoon of distilled water in the nebulizer and just held it in front of my face. This is some strong stuff. I don't think I put the mouthpiece directly in my mouth but I did pull some in my lungs via my mouth. I survived that.
Next I nebulized 1/2 teaspoonful of colloidal silver. This went smooth. About 2 or 3 hours later I started trying to clear my throat. I hacked around for a few minutes and just a small amount of yellow looking junk came up. I then took a dose of advair and I think some of it actually got to my lungs because before I don't think the advair was making it pass the back of my tongue. I did this like 2 days ago. I did Not do any yesterday or today. Today I just did the silver only.
I pulled the oxygen hose off for about 4 or 5 hours. I did get up and went slowly to the bathroom but while getting out of breath a little bit I did not get breathless. Tomorrow I will do the dmso again. I will pull a little more in my lungs. I will do the silver again. same dosages, and I also will put 1 teaspoonful of msm in a bottle of drinking water to drink.
For the last 2 days I have also been taking 1 morning probiotic capsule daily, 2 turmeric capsules daily, 1 vitamin c daily, 2 500mg Coq 10 tablets. This is the best I have felt in at least 3 or 4 years that I remember. It has been almost a year since I've left my home. I have a great husband. I have an even greater God who has led me on this path, because before I started healing myself physically, I made sure I was healed spiritually. I would recommend any spiritual healing before the physical.
I love you all. Take care. Breathe good.
Hi to you all I suffered with copd for eight years, six really bad ones.
However by chance - long story - I took some vitamin b12 and within 48 hours or so my symptoms had disappeared.
The tightness in my chest and the excruciating agony of breathing has gone.
Breathlessness is a symptom of vitamin b12 deficiency, pernicious anemia is a serious deficiency. Obviously I have some way to go with my breath as not being able to breathe for six years does take its toll - I get out if breath still but not breathless. So complete recovery could take a while I should think I am still only recently recovered I am no expert but I don't know if it will help all copd cases as they are many different causes - its worth a try.
As for the dosage well I used cherry flavored methyl b12 and just took four or five a day.
Vit b12 is a water based vitamin and the French firemen are given it before going to a fire to protect their lungs.
Good luck to you all
Thanks for looking.
Oh my god....I cannot believe that the UK has FG H202 designated as a criminal offense resulting in JAIL?? What is happening to this world folks!! This is deplorable to say the very, very least!! I am so disgusted at the constant attempts to control everyone's lives - especially since the wonderful internet has opened our eyes to so much, thank god!! I love FGH202 - have been very ill and must just get myself to use it regularly as part of my daily routine. Love you Earth Clinic - you are a GIFT to society at large for all the invaluable information found on this FANTASTIC site. Blessings of the Universe to you all.
Edgar Cayce's book Handbook for Health says he never knew anyone that did not recover from COPD if they would blow up 7 or 8 balloons a day. Certainly worth a try.
I would like to talk about Buteyko Breathing.
I was diagnosed with moderate COPD and told to use an inhaler, I refused the inhaler and tried to look for more information on how I could handle this naturally. In the mean time I did the peroxide inhaler according to Bill and oregano oil when I started coughing and knew that a bacterial infection was coming. Both of these were effective somewhat but my oxygen level kept going down. My husband died during this time and because I have agoraphobia my anxiety kicked in really bad. I really thought this was it.
I ordered an oxygen concentrator and was trying to figure out how to hook it up to my sleep apnea machine that I started trying to find out how to get rid of my excess co2 that everyone online said I have too much of.
Instead of finding what I was looking for, I found a site that said we had too little co2. That definitely got my attention. What I discovered was the Buteyko Breathing method. You will have to look up the site online and read for yourself how to do this. They have people who will help but they charge, so that was out, I'm cheap. But I found enough information online to get started.
The most important thing was keeping your mouth closed at all times. You only open it to talk and eat and yawn. The first time I did this I was really in a panic and especially with COPD but I kept it up. Just a small exercise for you that don't want to go to the internet and look up. Keeping your mouth closed take a small breath in and then a small breath out and then hold your breath for the count of 5, pause and do it all over again for about 10 min to start 3 times a day.
There is more to it but the improvement is apparent in about 24 hours. The nice thing is it is free!!!! You really need to research it on line or go to amazon and get a book on Buteyko Breathing. I started this whole routine in 2019. I have never used my oxygen concentrator. I have no more COPD and I walk one and a half to 2 miles a day. This is not just for COPD but for anxiety asthma and a host of other things. We are all over breathing and building up co2 that should be in our blood but is trapped in our lungs. I hope this has been a help to someone and and maybe will get you to thinking in a different direction. We are on a holistic site because maybe we're not sure if the pharmaceutical, doctors, science has it right!!! Or maybe we have tried it all and to no avail.
Free!!!! Oxygen is FREE!!
The best to you, Yolanda
Homemade Vapor Rub
Homemade Vicks helping lung congestion & capacity
Just thought I'd post our results on using homemade Vicks on family member's lung congestion and capacity. Inspired from this site when my kids were sick and I was using the petroleum Vicks, I made some using Olive oil, cocoa butter (to thicken), and essentials oils eucalyptus, peppermint, clove, lemon, spearmint and nutmeg. It helped the children then had my in laws come to stay. Mother in law has been told she has one and a half lungs only due to illness. To walk from bed to bathroom she would be out of breath. Also on the plane over they had to give her oxygen.
To my Vicks Brew I added several drops of pre diluted oregano oil and we applied this front and back of her lungs at night. Also in the cool mist vaporiser I fill with water ( it only takes about 350 mls) I add 7 drops lemon eo, 10 drops peppermint eo and about 16 drops eucalyptus eo. She says she can feel the warmth penetrating her chest.
Well after a week she is coughing less and yesterday she went shopping and did not have to stop frequently. I am also instructing her to eat garlic clove twice a day and to her tea turmeric or ginger or clove or cinnamon or cayenne. Actually when I make it I use all of this combination. I know if she were to inhale h202 she would be healed much faster but I need to give something she can emulate back home. I am now preparing a jar of my concoction she can take back with her. Hope this helps someone else who wants to ease into natural remedies.
DMSO, Colloidal Silver
I am shocked! It has been 4 days since I did a "breathing treatment" In 40 years, I have never gone 4 days without some kind of asthma treatment. In the last 6 months, I was doing prescription nebulizer treatments 3 or 4 times a day...until I found this information about DMSO and Colloidal Silver. I used both of this for several weeks without using any prescription medicine, BIG improvement! Then I decided to go one step further and added 1 tsp of coconut oil which I take 3 or 4 times a day. After a week of the added coconut oil, I quit using the nebulizer treatments with DMSO and Colloidal Silver. Yesterday I started wheezing, wheezed for 5 minutes and then coughed up some nice thin mucus and the wheezing stopped. The coconut oil has radically thinned my chest mucus which I cough up easily and frequently. Y'all I am so happy! This is a new life for this old lady. I am planning to take some big steps in the near future. 3 months ago I thought I would be dead in 2 years or less. Thanks for great information!!
I cook my grapefruit peels and pith in a crock pot for several hours with the lid on tight. I also add some lemon. After cooling I fill up ice trays with the liquid and put in the freezer. After freezing I put the cubes in a bag for storage in the freezer.
When I was a child my mother used to quarter cut and cook the whole grapefruit on the stove with enough water to cover the grapefruit. After about 30mins of simmering on the stove she would pour the liquid into a mug and add a shot of bourbon liquor and make us drink it down while still very hot she would then cover us up real tight and put us to bed, next day who ever drank it would be well. I still use this method from time to time but it is great to have some cubes stored away and use them anytime some one feels like something maybe coming on.
Moringa, Dandelion, Apricot Kernels
Hello all COPD sufferers.
A few months ago I started using moringa leaves and dandelion roots boiled in water and drank as a tea, twice a day. Twice a day as well as I was having the tea, I would have five apricot kernels. I also started eating the raw moringa leaves in sandwiches or in salads. Having suffered with COPD since diagnosed in 2006, I had reached the point where I would tire easily even while doing simple household chores. By the way I have never been a smoker. I have used all the medications including Spiriva, Symbicort, Prednisolone, Pulmicort, Antibiotics, Ventolin both the nebulising solution and inhaler.
I can now go to the gym and exercise and do all the household chores without tiring easily. I am also off of the Oxygen. I still stay away from milk (to avoid the buildup of mucus) and still occasionally take the Symbicort and Spiriva. As a matter of fact, they even last me longer than the regular month or two. I think this has been a Godsent remedy my daughter decided to give me one day. When I asked her what made her do this, she replied that she had been praying diligently asking God for a cure for me, having seen what I was going through.
Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation Method
COPD Hydrogen Peroxide letter
Last fall 2011, I started to use the peroxide medication regime and have had the subsequent events took place:
I was on an oxegenator 24/7 constantly hooked up and running.
Oxygen bottles were used whenever I needed to go to the store. I required help going to the store, could not bring in groceries myself.
It was not possible to walk from the back of my house to the front without getting winded. No work could be done at all. Laundry, cleaning, bed making, showering, and all walking was a real problem. Occasionally I would overdo and it ended in a full blown pulmonary episode, sometimes so severe my bladder would void unstoppably. I wanted to die when that happened. This is no way to live, I prayed to die or if I was not to die yet then to heal me. In response to my prayer He began to quicken my thoughts to investigate natural remedies, eventually I found this website and read about the use of hydrogen peroxide.
I have not used the oxegenator in over five months. My pure oxygen requirements went from eight small bottles a month to less than two. I'm still careful but I now can do my own gardening and lawn mowing on the lawn tractor. I don't need any other meds other than the two capsules that are taken everyday in an inhaler. I can go for days at a time without even using the nebulizer with the 3% hydrogen peroxide mixture.
I drive and shop unassisted. If you have COPD try this. It worked for me! And don't forget that God is in charge and guides you every moment.
Spices and COPD, Chronic Bronchitis:
A year ago, I was diagnosed with chronic Bronchitis - COPD, so severe that my ears turned blue from lack of Oxygen. My blood pressure was very high, too. The DOT immediately yanked my Health card for driving truck. When I went to the Dr. my Oxy saturation level was 81. He put me on an inhalor and I had to use a Nebulizer several times a day. Nothing really changed. I could breathe a little better, but was still able to walk only for short distances.
I love to cook, and tried to think of the healthiest people that I know. I started cooking with spices from China, India, and other Asian areas. I use curry powders (in various heat ranges), Turmeric, Cayenne, Garlic, Ginger, Paprika, Mustard, Wasabi, and others. I use one or more of these ingredients in every meal, and most snacks, that I cook.
About two months ago I had a physical, blood work, and EKG in preparation for surgery. My lungs no longer "wheeze" (I do have a bad day once in a while...but not DAILY); my blood pressure was normal; my Oxy sat level is 95 to 97 percent; (both) Cholesterols were at healthy levels, and, except for my COPD, I am as healthy as can be! The best result of eating all that good, spicy-hot, healthy food is that I can walk at least a half a mile without "running out of breath."
I have NEVER posted to any Website but feel that people should be aware of the benefits of spices and herbs. I have now found a local store that sells 1 pound packages of spices, instead of paying $4 to $7 in grocery stores for those little bottles. The savings are phenomenal. This is the best site that I have found that re-enforces my belief in hot foods. Thank you EARTH CLINIC.
I did know that 35% FG H2O2 was not available in the U K without a license, or other documentation, But a jail term, how backward thinking is that! I have been using the H2O2 therapy for twelve months now for COPD, with wonderful results. A few months back I signed up on a British lung forum where many people suffered from COPD. I related my experiences with H2O2 Therapy, The negative responces some bordering on the hostile, almost branding me a crank and a liar convinced me that the British have quite a long way to go before they see the light! I never returned to that site.
BEVIL NC,,,, ORH here and I take Armour Thyroid. which is what you are calling natural. When the stuff hit the sand, I stopped lots of things that I should be doing ...i.e. ACV, baking soda and iodine. I was also eating 4 Brazil nuts a day for Selenium. In years past I also took HCl for my stomach. You right, folks take Tums for indigestion when they should be taking HCl. Currently on a sleep kick and and now wearing the clip on blue light protection glasses that I got from Amazon for $39. Went to the manufacture's site and they wanted $99 for the same glasses. Blue light arouses you and red light calms you down. Take a cup of warm goats milk and a spoon of honey and get on my PEMF mat with the insomnia program, which lasts 24 minutes. I am also trying to follow my Circadian Rhythm and do this at 8:30 pm. I wake at 1 or 2 am, take a magnesium capsule and go to bed. Sleep is where you heal. Drove to Ga today to get both knees shot with Ozone. Right knee shot, but a prolozone shot ever few years avoids an artificial knee. Ozone will regenerate cartilage. Medical folks lie. Left knee is telling me it needs the same. Currency will be worthless soon and so I am blowing it now, when it worth something. Got our garden and PM in Brinks in Utah. Got my 2006 VW Jetta diesel out of storage and a 300 gallon tank of diesel for this 50 mpg vehicle. Gasoline going to $10//gal soon. If frugal, then I can motor for two years when fuel is not available. Bevil, I learned more in the Boy Scouts about survival and preparedness than I learned getting a ChE degree from Ga Tech. My yarns have a point if folks pay attention. ====ORH====
I was diagnosed with COPD in the summer of 2013 having suffered with constant coughing both day and night for about 6 months prior. I was unable to lie down in bed to sleep and had to sit upright propped-up with pillows so that I could at least get a little relief. Even so I was lucky if I could get more than a couple of hours sleep a night.
Having been issued with a Spiriva powder inhaler and a Ventolin Evohaler, after attending a Pulmonary Rehabilitation Programme at my local hospital and being given advice on how best to manage the condition I had to get on with the rest of my life as best as I could.
Despite taking the prescribed medications as directed they gave me little relief and each day became more of a struggle to combat the illness.
Then at the beginning of December 2015, with my condition rapidly deteriorating, I began to search the Web in earnest to try and find some answers to my problems.
To cut a long story short something steered me in the direction of purchasing a home dehumidifier with a built in charcoal filter and ioniser.
Living in the UK, as I do, we can get very high levels of moisture in our homes due to the excessive amounts of rain that we get.
This can basically fill the lungs with water from the atmosphere and I was coughing up excessive amounts of watery phlegm on an hourly basis.
The humidity level inside your home should be in the range of 40 – 65 (on a scale of 100) and, having purchased a cheap humidity gauge, I found that the levels in my home were reading a massive 85.
So I went online and purchased a dehumidifier which could remove about 10-12 litres of water a day from the air in your home.
It arrived about a week before Christmas and when I set it running it was giving a reading around 85 and, running it for just 12 hours a day, it was removing 2-3 litres of water from the atmosphere on a daily basis and the humidity level reading was gradually getting lower.
After 4 weeks of use the humidity level is now down to between 45 & 50 and the level of water that it is removing is getting less and less everyday.
My home was not showing any signs of having these high levels (such as mould on walls & ceilings, windows running with damp etc.) but I still had very high levels just the same.
My condition has improved in leaps and bounds over those 4 – 5 weeks and I now find that I am no longer coughing day and night, in fact I hardly cough at all now, and I no longer need to use the Ventolin Evohaler.
I am able to sleep at night now and my mental health, (I was getting very depressed and may I also say verging on suicidal?), is also starting to improve as my health gets better.
So the question is did I have or not have COPD? I don't really know, but I do know that my health has started to improve now (although I feel that some damage has been caused to my lungs because of all the years of coughing) and I am looking forward to a healthier life.
The doctors didn't seem to be able to help me – the answer to my problems was the dehumidifier and, although it might not be the answer for everyone, it could possibly be the answer for you too.
So, in conclusion, I offer this advice to those suffering with this dreadful condition.
(1) - Go online and get a humidity gauge.
(2) – Use it throughout the home for a week and see what readings you're getting.
(3) – If you find that you are getting high readings get yourself a dehumidifier.
I CAN'T GUARANTEE IT BUT IT WORKED FOR ME – IT COULD ALSO WORK FOR YOU SURE IT WELL WITH FAITH
25 days on asparagus and cayenne pepper. Last night I played 3 games of darts with my wife without huffing and puffing every time I walked to fetch my darts out of the board. I will keep you updated on my improvements.
