My husband is 42 and suffers from COPD caused by Sarcoidosis and smoking, he had bacterial pneumonia for 11 months straight in 2010. The doctors gave him every antibiotic imaginable, even Levaquin (which has a black box warning), they use it for treating Anthrax!! Nothing would take it away. I found colloidal silver online that is mixed with Hydro Peroxide and is specifically made for use with a nebulizer. Within three days his pneumoonia was GONE!! We are getting ready to start using the DMSO treatment and I'm hoping with all I have in me that it will help him as well as the silver did alone.
I began 2 weeks ago nebulizing 35% Hydrogen Peroxide. I am amazed at the results. I have tried every prescripition drug available for asthma and COPD available in the US. The side effects were so horrible, I was unable to continue treatment. I finally decided that I had nothing too lose so I decided to try the Peroxide treatment. Here is what I did. Just to mention I only did this twice a day for two weeks. On Oct 17 and 18 2012, I have not used the nebulizer at all. I am totally amazed, no wheezing, coughing, or heavy chest. I sleep comfortably throughout the night, something I have not done in over 8 months. I have a nebulizer that was prescribed by my doctor, but I also have information on purchasing one without a prescription, but more on that later.
Here's what I did. In a glass measuring cup pour one ounce of 35% food grade Hydrogen Peroxide, then pour into a sterile glass jar. I used a canning jar that I sterilized in boiling water. Then I measured 11 ounces of purified water to the peroxide and mixed well with a plastic spoon. Put into refrigerator. To nebulizer add 1 ml peroxide solution and 1-1/2 ml purified water, shake gently to combine. I breathed this for one to 2 minutes two times per day with amazing results. In severe copd cases you may nebulize more often.
I have been doing more extensive research on alternative treatments for COPD and found that nebulizing buffered L-Gluthathione has been proven as an effective treatment for COPD. L-Gluthathione is a very potent anti inflammatory and antioxidant. The liposomal form is best for inhalation. I am going to try this next.
I will stay in touch as I test and try new treatments for COPD
I just read that if you're doing albuturol or any of the other pharm drugs to NOT just start using CS, HP or DMSO. People should research more first.
I use CS and HP in a nasal sprayer and inhale the mist. The Nasal sprayer works good for me. I'm a smoker and it helps me breath easier.
I'm just researching about the DMSO in my lungs.
I used DMSO and CS mixed half and half, when I had all my teeth pulled, rubbed it on my cheeks the first few days, and it took out all the swelling and pain, and then applied it directly to the teeth sockets. Everything closed up in a week. Dentist couldn't believe it.
Hi, I've had COPD for years and these last months have been buggers.I've been fighting with pneumonia alot. After the hospitals and doctors, I decided to try naturally heal myself with vitamin supplements and minerals, acv, h2o2, etc..Well 4 days ago, after reading everything I could on DMSO, I decided to try drinking it. I took 1/4 capful with 1,000 mg MSM and orange juice. Within seconds of taking it, I could BREATHE! Then came the sinuses, they opened right up.I also felt it going thru my body. Where they removed my lung, I felt a twinge of pain. Just a twinge. Then in other areas I felt it.
Anyhoo, I've been taking it about every12 hours (as it starts wearing off) and I've worked up to a capful. My breathing has never been better. I don't need my inhalers so much and haven't had much wheezing. I've had some though I am so thankful for this sight starting me on naturally treating my body, without all the poisons. I never would have found the dmso for my COPD. My pulse ox is 98 and holding!
My husband was diagnosed with stage 4 COPD in December 2014. He started on H2O2 that Christmas and is still going. He stopped the peroxide in the following March and after a rerun of hip surgery caught a cold which resulted in atttacks of both viral and bacterial pneumonia in five weeks. We thought he wouldn't make it. He went back on the peroxide and at 80 is still able to run his little business repairing antiques and other furniture (He has workers to do the actual repairs but supervises everything).
He is on about 12 drops twice a day diluted according to the protocol and also nebulizes 3ml 3% twice a day and has a humidfier with an even more dilute solution running all night. He is on an oxygenator at night but can manage if there is a power cut.
I think it is the peroxide that has kept him alive and well enough to still enjoy life and feel useful.
I should warn you that hydrogen peroxide is reactive and corrosive. If you combine it with other stuff it will break down the other stuff, rendering it useless or converting it into other stuff that is either useless or harmful that you don't want in your body. So only inhale H2O2 if you haven't inhaled other treatments in a few hours, and will not be inhaling other treatments in a few hours. AVOID all treatments containing metals (silver, magnesium, etc) for 24 hours if using H2O2.
If my breathing has been really bad for a while, H2O2 helped sometimes. But it seems that whatever "cleaning" effect it has, it had no more beneficial effects after the lungs were cleaned with it. Perhaps people who are frequently breathing dirty environments, pollution, smoke, or regularly getting lung infections can benefit from regular use of H2O2.
Otherwise a few days in a row for cleaning out the lungs every few weeks or months might be good enough for some in good, clean, safe, healthy environments.
People with air filters, AC, & relatively clean air around them may not see any improvement from regular H2O2 treatments.
You may not need to mix H2O2 with distilled water. Pour a teaspoon of H2O2 in a small glass of your tap water. If it doesn't bubble or foam like crazy, or only bubbles a little bit, there's not much bad in it to react to, so you can mix it with ordinary tap water.
I've read coffee and caffeine may be bad for COPD. It turns out it is only bad for some of the meds you may be taking.
My COPD was so bad that I couldn't walk across the room or go to the bathroom without desperately gasping for air. Getting laid off because of breathing problems, losing my health insurance, & being on a tight budget, I gave up coffee because I could no longer afford it, and they said it was bad for me.
After some research I had discovered that caffeine is very similar chemically to some meds used to treat COPD. I traced my steps back to the last time I could walk across a room without gasping for air. It was before I ran out of coffee and gave it up!
I desperately went to my cabinet and got out some caffeine tablets I had from the days of my night-shift work, and took a tablet. These were the bigger strong ones. I used to only use a half a tablet for night-work because they were so strong. But for this experiment I took a whole one.
A whole one was too much. Got the shakes, and an uneasy stomach. Breathing only improved slightly during the first hour. During the second hour, breathing was remarkably better. After the second hour I was breathing better than I had in months!
The speedy/hyper effects of the caffeine had diminished considerably after a couple hours, but the breathing was still improving. I continued to breathe much better for 5 hours after taking the caffeine, before I noticed my breathing was starting to get slightly worse again.
I continued experimenting with different doses at different times to see what worked best. Rather than buy more coffee, I continued on using the caffeine "stay awake" tablets to formulate an accurate dosage/treatment scheme.
This is what works for me these days. I take a normal cup of coffee in the morning with a small caffeine tablet. The tablets are about half the size of the original ones, so are much weaker. It turns out more is NOT better. So if you have one of those special or exotic coffee makers that deliver a very strong caffeinated beverage, you might want to skip the tablets entirely.
Caffeine is a drug and a stimulant. If you have too much it will de-sensitze you to it, causing you to need more with less of the beneficial effect. Also too much will make you hyper or nervous so you'll burn more oxygen and get an upset stomach. So be sensible. Use only what you need, using too much will only make things worse.
I usually don't need any more caffeine for at least 5 hours. At that time, around lunch time or hours after, another ordinary cup of coffee is enough. But if my breathing has gotten considerably worse, I may take only 1/2 of one of those small caffeine tablets with the coffee. Again, I must stress, if you are having a strong coffee or strong caffeinated beverage you may skip the tablet.
AVOID Red Bull or other caffeinated beverages and energy drinks that may have other stuff in them you don't want or may be bad for you and your other treatments!
Just before, during, or after dinner time (depending on my breathing) I may have another cup of coffee. Many days I can skip it because I'm still breathing good enough. Other days if it has gotten real bad, I'll take another half a caffeine tablet with the coffee.
Again, I must stress, more or too much is NOT better. Take only the amount of caffeine you need to breath a little better. Taking too much will de-sensitize you to it, and the treatment won't work or work well anymore. Don't be impatient. You may notice only a slight improvement after 20-60 minutes of taking caffeine. The significant improvement will happen after the first hour, and continue for many hours.
2-4 hours before bedtime I might have another cup of coffee if my breathing is getting bad again. That way the speedy effects are almost worn off by bedtime so I can sleep well. However if my breathing is so bad that I can't get ready for bed or sleep safely, I'll also take a half a caffeine tablet with the coffee, and decide to stay up a few hours later until my breathing is better.
I find usually if I had a caffeine tablet or a half of one with my coffee, the next time or the next 2 times I do not need a caffeine tablet with my coffee, or can go longer without coffee. The tablets I'm using now only have about as much caffeine as a cup of coffee. So a cup with a tablet is like having 2 coffees. A cup with a half a tablet is like having a large coffee.
So I'm only having the equivalent of 4-6 regular ordinary cups of coffee a day in caffeine, and unlike the coffee guzzlers at work or at most jobs, it's spread out through the whole day, not just squeezed into an 8 hour work shift.
Check with your doctor to make sure it's safe to drink coffee with the meds you're taking. However, if you're having very strong coffee, or taking caffeine tablets, you might want to stop taking the other meds for that day anyway & see how things go.
Caffeine can conflict with other meds... especially meds that are stimulants that have ingredients in them that end in the letters "ene" or "ine", or steroids. They do not mix well with coffee.
So if caffeine is so similar to other COPD meds chemically why aren't doctors recommending it, or telling you to avoid it? Doctors and drug companies won't make much money if they tell you ordinary cheap coffee is almost the same thing as the meds.
I've recently changed my coffee recipe for even better results. A slightly weaker coffee with a little chocolate, sugar, and milk is even better. They say avoid sugar because it burns O2. BS! Any energy you burn will require O2. Sugar is the quickest was to ingest energy without spending a lot of resources & O2 digesting and processing it. So unless you're already overweight, enjoy your sugar.
I use a weaker cup of instant coffee now. Only a single level teaspoon of cheap generic instant coffee in hot water. 2.5 teaspoons of sugar. 1 heaping teaspoon of Nesquick instant chocolate milk (also has a little caffeine & antioxidants in it), and 1 heaping teaspoon of dry milk. Don't worry if you're lactose intolerant, a teaspoon of low fat dry milk doesn't have enough lactose to bother most people. So you're getting a little protein, vitamin D, calcium, energy & other nutrients with every cup. It's also delicious.
The little bit of low fat dry milk won't generate extra mucus, or slimy spit. I've tried many different recipes over almost a year now. The chocolate instant coffee recipe seems to improve the breathing the best.
The second best was cinnamon (lots of antioxidant) instead of chocolate in the coffee. But I had to use 3 heaping teaspoons of sugar instead of 2.5 for the taste & energy boost I needed. Yum!
With the new chocolate recipe, on a good day, I only need a caffeine tablet with the coffee in the the morning and can avoid more tablets with the coffee for the rest of the day or until the evening. Some good days I may only have 2 cups!
But there are still occasionally bad days where I still need a half tablet with every cup (up to 6 cups a day) to get through a day even with the chocolate.
Grapefruit juice is another daily treatment I use. Again, it had chemicals similar to some meds you may be taking so check with your doctor first or discontinue the meds for the day to see how it works for you. It is safe to take grapefruit juice with caffeine though.
Grapefruit juice is also some pretty potent stuff, so more is not better, and too much can make things worse. Because I need to sleep at night, I usually take about 8 oz. of grapefruit juice after dinner or a couple hours before bedtime. That way I need very little or no caffeine to help me breathe & can sleep better.
Air conditioning! Humidity is the enemy for most of us.That's why it's better to take a bath than a shower too. Showers put too much humidity into the air.
Keep the air cool and dry. Humidity of 40% is ideal for COPD sufferers. Some people can't take it much drier than that, but others are fine down to 0%. Keep it cool. The molecules & oxygen in the air are closer together at cooler temperatures. So you're getting more O2 per breath when the air is cooler.
Blow up a balloon in the hot sun on a hot humid day. Then put the balloon in the fridge for an hour. See how much it shrank? There's just as much O2 in there as before but it's more concentrated so takes up less space. More O2 per breath!
Wear heavy sweatshirts, hoodies, and sweatpants & other warm stuff inside to keep warm, and crank up the AC. Keep it in the 60s F (16-21C) to breathe better. The cool dry are will also slow or stop the growth of mold & bacteria that can be growing in the walls, drains, under the toilet rim, litter box, & other places you can't see it. That stuff thrives on warm or humid damp air.
Don't let the air get stale and de-oxygenated though. Crack the windows open at least a couple times a day to refresh the air. Even in the freezing winter. Turn up the heat or sit in front of an electric heater while the air is being refreshed in winter. It won't take long to refresh the air a little so you can close them again.
Cooking consumes a lot of O2, expels CO, CO2, dirties up the air, and heats the place up, so it's the best time to crack open the kitchen window to let in fresh air during winters.
Can afford that? Keep a small safe room that is always air conditioned, air filtered, and regularly refreshed, to retreat to... like your bedroom. It's pretty cheap to keep 1 small room conditioned well to escape to. Put a TV, computer, and projects to do in there to pass the time with on bad breathing days.
Avoid fireplaces, wood stoves, campfires, and other open flames & fires. They're very, very, bad for COPD. I have to stay home for Christmas and Thanksgiving because family insists they must have logs burning on a fire even though I can't breathe. Ironically my Mom passed away with COPD, but they have forgotten she couldn't breathe near a wood fire either.
Don't like the nasty looks they give me when I start coughing up goo either, so I'm glad to stay home during the holidays anyway.
Air filters! Although your small 400-500 watt window AC has a filter in it that helps, it will only trap large particles or hair, & a few contaminants may condense and stick to the cold damp AC core to be drained to the outside (so yes, they will clean the air a little). Even if you can only afford a couple $40 walmart portable air filters for a small bedroom they do help a lot. H2O2 may not help much if you're already breathing relatively clean air most of the time or overnight when the dirt settles in the lungs the most.
The disposable filters inside can cost almost as much as the units, & may need to be replaced in 3 months. But there's ways around that. Open up the unit to get at the replaceable filters. Tape a thin, cheap, sheet of single ply generic toilet paper over the front of the paper filter assembly. The cheapest version of Scot toilet paper works best for me. Replace the paper every 1-2 months (if you have pets & kids around once a month). The replaceable filters in mine have lasted 19 months so far, and seems like I'll get them to last over 2 years.
I used to desperately gasp for air just walking across the room or going to the bathroom every day for months. With the caffeine, grapefruit juice, AC, & filters, I can get most of my household chores, cooking, and eating done almost every day good enough. I can walk 8 blocks to get groceries, & carry them home, taking a rest for a few minutes every block or so now.
I live on the second floor. I can go downstairs to check my mail every day without much problems now. No cure, but much better than before.
I believe a lot of what Edgar Casey said.
Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation Method
May I suggest, when performing a breathing treatment, H2O2, CS, DMSO, whatever, exhale as deeply as possible, inhale as deeply as possible and hold up to 10 seconds. As we repeat the process, we begin to breath in deeper and deeper, getting our chosen solution to the bottom of our lungs. Normal breathing only goes down into our lungs about 20% - 30% of their capacity.
Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation Method
definitely 3 %. I don't feel that this message is clear enough to readers, so I want to say for all readers - 35% H2O2 will burn a hole in your skin - that means it will perforate your throat, larynx and lungs. NEVER TOUCH 35% HYDROGEN PEROXIDE. Wear gloves when mixing it with distilled water - one part H2O2 to 11 parts distilled water.
I have always been impressed with positive feedback from those who start out as non-believers. Here is an extract from an email I recently received from my father who is suffering from COPD. "Hi Lynn, I want to say a big thanks to you for putting me on to Hydrogen Peroxide. I'm sceptical about alternative medicine on the whole but I'm convinced of the benefits of this treatment. It is possible that some effects come from a lessening of grass pollen and the cleansing of the air by rain - but surely they are not responsible for the complete transformation experienced over the past week or so. I walked a Hawk's Brow circuit this morning - the first time since 27 May (and this was a walk usually done several times a week). I was going to say that there was no coughing as such - but in fact there was really none at all! I now feel optimistic about sticking around for a while yet..."
After living with COPD for several years my condition recently got worst to the point that I could barely manage simple chores like taking out the garbage. 2 wks ago my Pulmonary Doctor told me to use Oxygen 24/7 and to use an Albuterol inhaler twice a day and as needed for emergencies.
A few days later I had a serious incident from trying to climb some stairs,and almost passed out. The next day I had another incident from a minor exertion. I believe that an angel must have directed me to the earthclinic web site because I found the Hydrogen Peroxide treatment there. I am lucky enough to have a better system to administer the Hydrogen Peroxide than using asquirt bottle. I have a machine for my Sleep Apnea where I sleep with a mask that covers my nose and mouth and the machine provides positive air pressure to keep my wind pipe open. The machine also has a water tank of about 6 oz to keep the air moisturized.
I began my treatment with standard drug store 3% Hydrogen Peroxide, and dialuted it 50/50 with filtered water. I braethed that mixture for 8 hours that night and in the morning my lungs were clear. I didn't have the usual coughing fit to clear my lungs of mucus. The next night I used a 30% mixture instead of 50% and the results were just as good. I stopped using my hand held inhalers entierly. I again cut the dose down to 20% and still had the great results.
On the 10th day I awoke with so much energy that I changed the bed sheets, vacuumed the floor and cleaned the bath room. 2 weeks before this I could barely walk across the room.
The Peroxide treatment is a blessing to me.
I have asthma and bronchiectasis (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease). Was diagnosed 8 years ago. I was suffering from monthly (sometimes twice monthly) chest infections, and had to take antibiotics for every outbreak and becoming more and more resistant and sensitive to the drugs. I started using Colloidal Silver in my nebuliser about a year ago now and have not had a chest infection since. As soon as I feel my sputum changing (from clear to yellow) I use the colloidal silver and the infection does not develop any further. Some times I have to do it more than once, but mostly once is enough. I hope this will help anybody out there that is struggling with the same problem. Good luck!!
I suddenly developed COPD symptoms after an episode with a mycotoxin that caused Pellagra. I used homeopathic remedies from a Dr. to heal this issue but wound up developing a breathing issue. After reading the symptoms for COPD I looked up remedies for this on homeopathicremedyfinder.com and found an essential oil blend remedy being sold there that looked viable for my ailment.
When I read the ingredients, I realized I had a similar product in the house called thieves oil. I immediately started inhaling the vapors up my nostrils and mouth hourly. In under 24 hours, I could take a full breath of air easily and went for a walk up a short hill. I was beyond better. I continued on this regime for a few more days before declaring myself healed and relaxed into normal life. This is a very inexpensive cure for a very aggravating affliction.
I have also used Red Beet Crystals to oxygenate my body when I need energy and endurance.
Hope this helps people heal quickly and get beyond this illness. You can cure yourself of COPD! I did.
Colloidal Silver, Hydrogen Peroxide
Oral colloidal silver (AgNPs) are not likely to get any useful amount of AgNPs into the lungs. The only way I have managed to have an impact on the lungs with AgNPs is via inhalation of AgNPs using a cold process small room vaporizer/humidifier. A nebulizer will work, but it is slower because of smaller delivery volume than the cold process vaporizer/humidifier.
A word of caution though, you cannot use the hydrogen peroxide (HP) at the same time as AgNPs because the HP will destroy real colloidal silver in seconds.
For myself, if I was going to try and use both, I might experiment on myself by alternating a week of HP inhalation and a week of AgNPs. If I was going to do this everyday to myself, I would limit my AgNP dose to twice a day for the first week and then once a day after the first week. After the second week I might switch to one application every other day.
If after a month or so I determined improvement when using one substance over the other, I might consider switching to the better substance only, but that's just how I look at it.
I will soon be writing a post about COPD which will offer another supplement worth considering. Keep an eye out for that!
You should always check with your doctor or professional health care provider to make sure that such use of HP and AgNPs is safe for you.
Interested in hearing theories on this. Ted maintains that Dmso has the potential to dissolve tar in the lungs. Recent studies with lab rats have found that using a retin A substance injected into the rats allowed them to regenerate new alveoli and cured them of induced emphysema. Since we know that dmso penetrates the skin directly, what might be the potential of mixing 2% retin A (tretinoin) into a 50% dmso gel and using this transdermally on the chest. Any thoughts on this?
Hi Pamela. Sorry to hear that you have run into problems with using H202. I suspect though, that you could be using the wrong kind of Peroxide. You mentioned that you purchased 3% peroxide called Gold Cross which sounds like a chemist/pharmacy bought product to me which is the wrong king.
The pharmacy bought product will contain what is called stabilizers, added chemicals! These you do not need. The Peroxide that you should be using is 35% food grade with no stabilizers and this you will dilute down to 3% and then you can inhale or drink in this form. Do not use in the 35% form, always dilute. In Australia there are many sites online that you can buy the 35% food grade H202, so search out one of these and when you receive your bottle keep it in the freezer to retain the potency. This should not burn your throat, a bleach type taste is normal, and you certainly will notice changes in your condition. So keep the gold cross for other purposes. All the best.
Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation Method
Bill Munro used plain old hydrogen peroxide with the preservatives etc. If you can find it without them, all the better.
I started to pass out one day when I tried to blow up 3 balloons in a row. I will try again, but slowly. It was pretty scary cause it was like my equilibrium went ou and I started falling over. I sure need to build my lungs up and at this point am willing to try again.
Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation Method
H2O2 inhalation for COPD: I'm having good results with peroxide in my nebulizer. I have diluted food grade hydrogen peroxide (diluted to 3%) in a glass eyedropper. I put distilled water into another eyedropper. Two droppers of peroxide and three droppers of water seems to be the dosage that works for me. I had a bit of an irritation in my throat when I went a little stronger.
Twice I did a lot of deep breathing with the nebulizer and got a little light headed. Took me a while before I realized that I was just hyperventilating. So just do your regular breathing.
I find that if I haven't used it for several days, I'll have a bit of phlegm so I have to clear my throat a few times. My thinking is that it's loosening up the crud in my lungs and that's not a bad thing!
Thanks to EC and the people that take the time to post. It's all so helpful to read everyone's experiences.
DAVID, ORH here, and I too spoke with Bill Munro many years ago. I had e mailed him and he called me. What a delightful gentleman. I moved from his hydrogen peroxide delivery system to a nebulizer a few years ago. Thought I was pretty savvy, but this video sent me to school about increasing the effectiveness with Vit C. This is one of the most informative sessions I have ever watched in my long life. I was aware that most women's breast cancer is due to the toxins in their teeth and gums, but did not realize that this is also a root cause of heart problems. This doctor advocates using a dental pick containing hydrogen peroxide as a cheap and natural way to address these problems. Here's the article.
Me, I'm going to jump on this with both feet. Not hearsay, but two doctors discussing how to help avoid heart disease and cancer. ==ORH==
Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation Method
Ref: COPD - 74 years old
I started drinking H/P - H202 just over one week ago so far I feel good with no problems or side effects, I bring up copious amount of mucus, and even though I need oxygen at times I cope well without it so far.
I must point out, never take Hydrogen Peroxide at full strength of 35% - always dilute. In my case, I use 200ml distilled water to 3 drops 35% 3 times a day and increase as per protocol.
Please read as much as you can on Hydrogen Peroxide before you start taking it scroll down the latest post and you find the protocol of use.
let me know your progress.
Please don't ingest store-bought 3% H202; do read about 35% Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide at Dr David G Williams website (google, "The Many Benefits of Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide," find the Williams entry, which offers instructions on its use.
I had TB in service (WW2), didn't know it, self-cured it (we're giants at 19) but was a shallow breather. In 1984 I was showed lung scars on my chest X-ray and finally knew why I had difficulty breathing.
Recently my breathing worsened, limited me to four hours sleep a night. Recalling that one sister died of IFP, one of emphysema, I looked at myself at 87.
Hoping for a longer life, I'd followed an FG H202 regimen for four years -- high dosages for a month, then 3 drops a day in spring water and no colds in that time. Now deep breathing was impossible, so I upped my FG H202 intake to 9 drops (3 X3) a day.
There was improvement. Hardly dramatic, yet I was grateful for it. Now I'm seeking a Homeopath who offers the IV H202 treatment. Dr Williams says it really works on emphysema-- we'll see about that.
The government calls me a death-panel candidate, but I call them names, too. And yes, my COPD worries don't compare to those of others in this forum, but I had to offer this FG H202 advice anyway. I ask you to help yourselves. Read on Dr Williams' website -- I found it as I found Earth Clinic. By happy chance.
Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation Method
Hydrogen Peroxide inhalation for COPD
Hello, My name is Maggie and I live in Massachusetts. I am writing because I finally decided to take a chance on inhaling hydrogen peroxide for my COPD. I have been sick every Winter since I was 26 (16 years). I have tried diet change, steroids, antibiotics, supplements (with some success) and every other alternative offered to me. I have used your website for other ailments, but thought this was a little crazy. However, I have been using this method for 3 weeks and have NEVER felt this good in the Winter. I have also stopped using my rescue inhaler (down from 6-7 times a day) and am not taking any medications. I will be personally sending an email to Bill Munro, who is now my hero. Just when I finally began to accept that I was going to be another statistic (surviving as many Winters as I could handle until my disease did me in, as it did my father), a miracle falls into my lap! I will do this treatment for the rest of my life and I will recommend it to EVERYONE who ever complains to me of bronchitis, asthma, or any other form of COPD. Thank you Earth Clinic and thank you Bill Munroe for giving me a chance to live my life, instead of biding my time!!!
re: COPD & Lung Cancer and virgin coconut oil -- I found almost immediate relief from thick mucous taking VCO. I started out with 1 T. with each meal, sometimes in tea or room temp juice. It thins the mucous making it easy to cough up. I also drink 2 quarts of water in addition to the VCO. The water alone did not help. My nasal passages are both open for the first time in years and breathing is much easier. VCO makes the skin lovely.
That post looks likely to be up sometime between today and tomorrow so keep an eye out for it.
Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation Method
CAROYLN, first...... chill out, and take a deep breath. I cannot help you, but there are good folks on EC that can. You have not totally explained your situation. Who told you that you have COPD? Explain your problem in detail and folks from every county in the world will come to your aid. Someone has had your problem and got well. They just need to know the details. How old are you? Did you smoke, etc.
Hey, no one has a magic bullet. A solution is probably time consuming and a pain in the ___. Start over from the beginning. Someone will get you started to good health.
If countries worked together like folks on EC do, then conflicts would be in our back mirror.
You from Mo and we used to go to the Roaring River State Park and eat locally caught fresh trout at a cafe there. My mouth is watering just thinking about that.
Like I said, explain your problem in detail and EC folks will help you.
Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation Method
Thanks all for your replies. I was diagnosed with COPD about 3 yrs ago. I quit smoking then and have avoided any type of chemical or being around anyone smoking ever since. I haven't been sick at all in those 3 yrs, either. The only problem I had was coughing and after I stopped smoking, so did the coughing. The Dr didn't run any tests, she only mentioned I had that, I suppose for one of her money making schemes to keep me coming back. Anywho, it was one day out of the clear blue sky, I got to the top of the stairs and I thought I was suffocating, never had that happen before. It's been that way since. It started getting worse and I started H202. In the last week or so, I have been extremely sick at my stomach and ACV was one of my guesses. I didn't drink it one day and the pain came back full blast. I got back on it, but only 1 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar and 1/4 tsp bs 3xday. Last night I think the H202 got a little deeper. About 30 minutes later, I coughed up some phlegm, (white and yellow) I felt and slept better, but this morning back to like before. Now, if I take a deep breath through my mouth, it's painful to my throat and makes me have a dry cough. It's like you feel when you go out and smoke 2 packs of cigs in about 4 hours lol.
I had to move from one house because of mold several years ago, arthritis got better for a while but in the last year it's made me almost immobile. Dr won't do anything, says take tylenol, blah blah blah. I have a neighbor to check around for any mold. After Janet mentioned that, I remembered what I had learned before and that's what I'll look into first. Thanks again. I'm still open for more advice and/or opinions.
Apple Cider Vinegar, Borax, Mullein Tea
I started the Organic ACV - a tablespoon at night. It helped only a little. Purchased some mullein tea and made that... It was helpful combined with Breathe Easy Yogi tea gave it a better flavor and it did help.
Then began using a nebulizer with H202... that was difficult. Burned my throat, caused a paroxism of coughing but in about 2 days the phlem was less. Wheezing was reduced and I was breathing a little easier and not heaving every time I tried to do something.
A friend told me his wife used a diffuser with essential oils and H202... so I purchased that and began using that instead of the nebulizer... which was easier to cope with and I can let it run all day if I am near the diffuser. The one I got came with 10 essential oils... Then I purchased an essential oil specifically for COPD... that hasn't arrived yet. Also got one called Respiratory Rescue from Garden Essence. That is also working. Airways are clearer, I can move about without feeling so winded and exhausted. Wheezing is nearly gone. 2 capfuls of H202 in the diffuser with 10 drops of the essential oil. But I have a ways to go yet.
Then I wondered if COPD could be reversed and also what caused it. I was a smoker in my 20's... but I'm now 73. Could it be that I am experiencing this from a bad habit I had some 50 years ago? I wondered and so did some research. You will be surprised at what I found.
Here is a video... this explains why a person can be suffering from COPD even though they quit smoking many years ago.
In case that video is taken down... here is a link to a blog. Website offers info on conventional and alternative treatment along with a focus group. This person also wrote a book which is the 3rd edition.
I'm new to Earth Clinic... but I am so grateful for the suggestions that are offered here. The H202 was the first good solution but the journey toward recover is not over yet. I hope this new info will help others.
Colloidal Silver Effective for COPD
You can purchase a "Cool Mist" Mister at Walmart for about $36. Do not get one with a filter. 10PPM CS is good enough as one teaspoon contains about 100 trillion particulates of silver bonded onto the oxygen molecule. So not to waste a gob of money, just put a few oz. of CS in mister, and turn on full blast. Place your mouth and nose as close to the mist coming out and breathe in. At first, you will cough so take shallow breaths and increase till your coughing quits. Do this for maybe two minutes at a time and several times daily. The trick is to finally be able to take in the largest breath you have ever taken as it opens the back of your lungs and permeates where it's really needed.
Blowing up balloons gently at first is great also. You will fail at first but keep trying...Good luck
3% FG Hydrogen Peroxide is available in India through amazon.in. Please see this Amazon India link. I have used the product and is of good quality.
Hope this helps.
1. Dilute it. Even a lot.
2. Breathe in deeply.
3. Good results come with time.
4. Use other methods, like putting a squirt into a humidifier at night. Or a nebulizer.
Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation Method
HI U KEVIN,,,,,,,,,,, I don't think your problem is store bought 3 % H2O2 as our idol, Bill Munro used this for some 20+ years and died at age 89. However, he did not use a nebulizer. Most folks find that about 1 1/2% is all they can stand using a nebulizer. That is also my experience, after I used Bill's 3 % technique for several years.
Hope this sheds some light on your dilemma.
Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation Method
Bill Munro used his hydrogen peroxide inhalation method for years with success. When we have used hydrogen peroxide in the nebulizer, we have used it "as needed, " but we were only using it for an acute cough.
I am wondering how many times a day are you using it currently?
