My 79 year old Mother had an upper respiratory infection. She could not shake the cough. I had recently read an article that said steep 1 teaspoon of your kitchen variety thyme in a cup of hot water, as you would a teabag, and sip. She tried it and it worked. Encouraged, I told my friend who has the start of COPD about it, she tried it and is amazed also. The article stated it relaxes the bronchials. Yet another alternative.

Colloidal Silver

This is a reply to Patsy in Brisbane, Australia posted 7/14/2007. I am sorry I have not replied to your question. Have not visited the site for a while. Use 5mls of Colloidal Silver in your nebuliser 3-5 times a day until your sputum clears. I also use P73 Wild oregano oil, 2 gelcaps 4 times a day. I have started on a liver cleansing diet, lots of raw juices and fresh vegetables and fruit according to The liver cleansing diet and raw juices can save your life by Dr. Sandra Cabot. She has a base in the USA and also Australia. All the products I use you can order on-line. The staff of Dr. Cabot are very helpful and will give you advice tailored to your needs. This is for chest infections for people with bronchiectasis/COPD. Hope this helps. PS I have not had a chest infection or a cold or flu in a year. Regards, Maddy, Nottingham, UK

Buteyko Breathing Method

I have copd for about 7 years diagnosed. I have never taken any inhalers or medication for it. I only took Bill Monroe's hydrogen peroxide by spraying in throat, but things were not getting better even though Bill peroxide helped. I started experiencing high anxiety and shortness of breath, I even went so far as to buy a very expensive oxygen concentrator. I read how my co2 was the problem and causing my shortness of breath. So I went to Google and tried to find out how to reduce my co2, Boy did I get a shock when I found out that co2 is a good thing and not bad!!! What? The problem was the co2 was being trapped in the lungs and not able to get into the blood where it was needed. I was told we are all overbreathing or hyperventilating. The doctor who found all of this out and was the discover was Doctor Buteyko. If you look up Buteyko breathing and do a search you will find all the information you need. By the way, I have never used my $2,500 dollar oxygen machine. My bronchitis is gone I am walking 1 mile with very little discomfort I am sleeping better at night and anxiety is at a minimal.

For those of you who won't look this up I will give you a very simple exercise to do at least 2 time a day or whenever you think of it. The more you do the better you feel. Keep your mouth closed at all times!!! The feel of smothering with leave, sneeze through your nose and cough through your nose. You can yawn through your mouth. Take a small breath in and a small breath out and then hold for 5 SECONDS.

The best to you all, Yolanda

Buteyko Breathing Method

I have copd and a while back I talked about what I was doing for it. One was Bill Munro's hydrogen peroxide inhalation method since then I have come about a new revelation and have to share it. It is the Buteyko method of breathing.

I know there is a lot of information out there on breathing but this is definitely different. I have refused all inhalers since I was diagnosed about 5 years ago but in the last year I have gotten really bad. I started having a hard time breathing and then I started having extreme anxiety issues and after doing research I found that the build of co2 was a factor. I then tried to find out how to get rid of co2 in the body. Much to my surprise I found out from the Buteyko site that we actually had too much oxygen and it couldn't be utilized because it couldn't mingle with the co2 and enter the bloodstream! It talked about a simple breathing exercise that would actually cure asthma and help with copd. It seems like the biggest problem we have is overbreathing. My oxygen level was always around 93 then sometimes would drop to 90. I ordered a $2,300 dollar oxygen concentrator with a prescription I got from the doctor. I have never used it and that has been 3 months ago.

The biggest but not the most important thing about Buteyko breathing is just shutting your mouth all the time even when coughing and sneezing. I have sleep apnea and I take my mouth shut at night and put on my full face mask. I am now walking a good mile a day without shortness of breath and my oxygen level is alway at 94. The nice thing is it's free. All I bought was a book on Amazon I won't give you the name because I don't want you to think I'm selling books.

Look up Buteyko breathing on line there is enough free stuff to change your breathing. The Best

I am in the early stages of COPD, but never extremely short of breath, until one day, I went upstairs and was out of breath. At first, I thought it was from being idle from arthritis, but instead of getting any better from numerous trips up the stairs, it's actually gotten worse. I had started Apple Cider Vinegar and Baking Soda for the pain (and it helps) but the SOB still as bad. I started inhaling Peroxide a couple of weeks ago and I can't tell any difference at all. When out of breath, if I try to take a deep breath, it causes me to cough and now I'm getting sick at my stomach when I do that. I am wondering if I am inhaling wrong or am I so bad it's only going to take longer than I had hoped. I have thought about low iron, I have had all my life and I ordered some Blackstrap Molasses. There isn't a decent health food store near me, I don't have access to much except thru the internet. Does anyone know anything else I need to do and with what?

Hi Klaserie.

Good to read that you had no problem finding FGH2O2 in South Africa. I am in Australia but will be locating to India, and will stay there for some time.

I have been doing H2O2 therapy (oral) for COPD for one year now, with very good results and want to continue. Unfortunately I have had no luck finding FGH2O2 on any website in India. I have contacted a couple of companies in South Africa who can ship FGH2O2 to India, but the only problem is that the minimum order they will supply is 1,000 liter's. which is huge!

So my question is if you know any suppliers in S.A who I could contact, with the view of being able to purchase a reasonable quantity, in perhaps a few liter's.

All the best Klaserie

Hi Waltz.

Thank you so much for your reply. Just checked out the Amazon sight and it looks really promising. Recently when I was in India I traveled to Coimbatore in T.N as I was assured by a company there that they had the FGH2O2 available, although when I arrived there, they messed around on the phone trying to find it from elsewhere, which didn't happen, returning to Australia I received some in about two days, but will be returning to India when I finish up here, so was worried about supply, but now looks as though as is well..(Pun intended) Thank you Waltz

Cheers Geoff.

You are probably aware by now but it seems that H2O2 can have an oxidative effect on metals, here colloidal silver being the case, so it's recommended to take them apart, some say as much as 24hours.

HI U GABBYSUE, , , , , , , , , , Hammer meet nail. Girl you right about this. 3 % is OK via mouth inhalation , but not with a nebulizer as we have learned. We cut the 3% H2O2 by half to avoid the burning.

With a Southern double name, you got to be of my generation. That just does not happen any more. Folks now all expect their younguns to be in the movies so they give them a Hollywood name to start with. Glad you have recovered and go slow as you indicated. Don't stop, just slow down.

I've used food grade h2o2 for copd and had some success- need to get more and try again-it is almost elusive to obtain!!

One compound pharmacy had to ask the boss if they could sell it as... they use h2o2 to make a lot of medicine! I got some from them-expensive-then contacted a BIG wholesale chemical company that gave me a pint or 2 for free as they sell it in 55 gallon drums-not too drastic for so much!

It does oxygenate and many diseases cannot live in an oxygen rich environment.

It may have some side effects that are not that nice- so watch out and I'd say (altho I am NOT a physician at all), use in moderation and probably not needed long term-continually. Experiment a little- see how you feel, I wager it will help in the right dose and over X amount of time depending on your condition

Good Luck!

On another note - if you do have any further knowledge of h2o2 effects on hemochromatosis PLEASE email me asap

For COPD, the following supplements have helped me a lot:

Twice a day:

  • CoQ10 - two 60 mg (take w/food that has fat)
  • NAC - 600 mg
  • Vit D3 - 10,000 IU
  • Vit C - 1000 minimum
  • MSM - 2000 units

And once a day:

  • A good multivitamin
  • L Carnitine
  • Acetyl L Carnitine
  • Calcium (I make eggshell calcium, take with vit C)
  • B - 50 complex
  • Turmeric (I just put it in capsules)
  • Thyme (same, I put it in capsules)
  • Magnesium
  • Milk Thistle
  • Glutithione

Oil of oregano if I'm getting sick, ACV with baking soda per Ted several times a week. No dairy, no sugar, organic veggies and fruit if you can afford them. No fake food, real butter, coconut oil EVERY DAY. H2O2 in my nebulizer some days (there's a section on here about that).

Wow! Looks like a ton of pills, doesn't it. But now I use a rescue inhaler only once a day (Ventolin HFA), some days not at all. I'm now able to walk more, started exercising, feeling and breathing better now than I have in the past two years.

Good luck!

Hi Moonshamarie of Edmonton, I'm replying to your queries that you asked Patti, however, her message is about 4 years old now, and yours is so up to date hence my replying. Your question to Patti was did she take 1 teaspoon a day? And did she ingest it? She said she took the coconut oil 3 - 4 times PER DAY! And I am certain she ate it from the spoon? Because she stopped the Colloidal Silver and the DMSO and then carried on with Coconut oil! I am positive she ate it from the spoon.

I hope this is of help to you and also Mark who mentioned Patti if he is still around somewhere.

He needs his 25 hydroxy D levels to be at least 60-80 ng/mL in order for his immune system to work. The steroids destroy the immune system and we need the immune system to fight. No amount of silver will boost the immune system. I would give him a 3 day superdose of 2,000 iu's per kg of body weight, once per day for 3 days only and then use a maintenance dose daily of about 50 iu's per lb of body weight once per day.

If you are having chemical sensitivity, you are most likely deficient in magnesium, zinc, selenium. and molybdenum. It is best to take these in angstrom form - liquid ionic minerals. I went to an oriental medicine doctor. I took these minerals twice per day, 20 minutes apart. I took magnesium and molybdenum every day. I alternated selenium and zinc. For 2 weeks I took Mg, Selenium, Moly, then Mg, Moly, and zinc. It cleared up all chemical sensitivity. It took a year. I also took Jergon Sacha and a liver cleanse to clear out a viral infection that was causing the drain on minerals. I hope this helps.

I am 68 yrs old and suffer from COPD. I have smoked since the age of 16. I recently heard about H2O2 Inhalation and while Googling found Earth Clinic. Here I came apon Bill Monroe and decided to try it. When I first started, last Sept. 2011, I could not walk to the mail box (about 50yds) without weezing. Now I get there and back to the house. But I still wanted more. I recently read about DMSO and MSM. They sound like answers to my prayers. I ordered them today from my vitamin supplier and will start using as soon as they arrive. I will be taking 1000mg MSM 3X a day and inhaling MDSO. As many have asked where to get DMSO I thought I would let you know what I found. I went on line to Amazon looking for books about it and when I typed in DMSO a whole list of DMSO items came up, from creams to liquids. Much cheaper that what I had just paid at another location. I will try to let everyone know how they work for me.


4/22/2012 Update:

I have been using DMSO (50%) and MSM 1000mgX3 since 3/3/12 with no ill side effects. I also use a H2O2 inhaler. I definately can breath better. I can now make 2 trips to the mail box without stopping to catch my breath. Also for the past week I have noticed that I am sleeping all night and resting better. I no longer need to take an afternoon nap. I use both inhalers 4 to 5 times daily with 2 deep breaths and 4 pumps each breath. When I reorder my DMSO it will be 99.9%. I did have one short spell of not feeling well and I cut back on the amount of DMSO I was using. I believe that I may have been overloading my liver and kidneys. No problem now.

Hi William.. How are you taking your DMSO? If you are nebulizing it how much do you use? I only weigh 83 lbs. So I have to be very careful how much of anything I use.

Linda, I'm not sure if mold is one of the symptoms of copd, but I have tried several different remedies for copd on this site with varying results over the last 2 years. Much of it was very helpful to me including the use of 3% hydrogen peroxide spray, according to Bill Munro, along with a 1:1 ratio of 3% H2O2 and distilled water in my nebulizer.

Having a lot more summer humidity this year my breathing got worse and often needed to use my rescue inhaler. Last month I did some research and found out about yamoa powder which I am using with excellent results within a short period of time and breathing much better now. I wish you the best and hope you find a remedy that works as well. Not being able to get a decent breath is very scary.

Sea Salt
Posted by Dan (Clearwater, Florida) on 08/17/2012

Rv, I have a couple of questions about your post.

1) I just read the Wikipedia article on "Fungal Pneumonia" which is informative but left me wondering... What type of fungus was involved in your case?

2) I'm interpreting your description to mean that you cultured spit (sputum) in sea water to get a more potent viral concentration that would be more effective on the bacteria of your infection. But if it was a "fungal pneumonia" doesn't that mean that it was a fungus involved instead of bacteria?

3) Did you try inhaling any of the sea/salt water before trying the "culturing"? (i.e. , might this work by just inhaling a mist of just plain seawater or perhaps just plain saltwater made from refined table-salt, not from sea-salt?)

I have been taking MSM for a while now and I have to say my asthma/COPD is much improved. However, MSM does contain sulphates which some individuals may be sensitive to and may cause some side effects. I have read from a very good source that this can be largely overcome by taking a supplementation of molybedenum(500mcg). Hope this helps.

Back on 6/23/09 I made a careless mistake by stating:

"5) acetyl L-carnitine 1000 mg 3x/day has been proven to loosen mucous secretions and helps to promote their elimination".

Acetyl L-carnitine is useful for treating peripheral neuropathy and not COPD. I meant to say "N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) 1000 mg 3x/day has been proven to loosen mucous secretions and helps to promote their elimination (an amino acid available in health food stores)".

I think I became careless because I take them both and was needing to reorder ALC, the former nutrient, so it was 'on my mind'. There is a class of macrolide antibiotics (which includes erythromycin and azithromycin) that have immuno-modulating effects in very small dosages of only 250 mg every other day, requiring a long term renewable prescription from an MD.

There are considerable medical studies that indicate macrolides reduce inflammatory cytokines, and biofilm formation which make pathogenic bacteria more resistant to eradication by antibiotics and other means. Nebulized DMSO 30% to 50% solution has anti-biofilm and anti-bacterial activity, even against most multiple-drug-resistant-bacteria like pseudomonas a. And acinetobacter b. Gaylord Chemical in Slidell, LA published a report indicating that DMSO was non-toxic by either oral, inhalation, or dermal administration, and DMSO is completely biodegradable. The results of extended inhalation toxicity studies on rats exposed to saturated vapors of DMSO showed no statistical difference from rats in a control group, who did not breathe DMSO. They do not sell DMSO to the public. Odorless garlic preparations containing allicin have anti-quorum sensing activity that also diminish biofilm formation. There are various mucolytic enzyme formulas that may also be helpful. Some people claim that they have had great benefit from taking colloidal silver both orally and by inhalation. So far, there no medical studies that support this. Do your own research.

So far, the medical profession only supports the use of DMSO for treatment interstitial cystitis (a very painful bladder disorder that doesn't respond to anything else). Do your own research.

Food grade hydrogen peroxide has been claimed by many to have helped to reduce symptoms of COPD and other lung problems like bronchitis. Do your own research.

High doses of vitamin C (1000 to 2000 mg/3x day have increased the resistance to infections and allergens. (Linus Pauling took 20, 000 mg/d for decades and lived to 92).

Straight niacin, which causes transient but temporary flushing, is a potent natural capillary vasodilator that can be very beneficial for it's detoxifying properties. Niacin helps remove "capillary sludge" and increases blood flow to the entire body. Don't be afraid of the flushing when you start.

Taking a cool shower will provide quick relief if needed. It only lasts 15-20 minutes, and as you continue taking niacin your body develops a tolerance to the flushing in part due to your capillaries remaining relatively more dilated throughout the day.

Start with small doses and work up to the higher doses gradually. Straight niacin is far more beneficial than non-flush niacin for many disorders like COPD.

Ted's Remedies

Hello Ted and EarthClinic -- Here are some results from Ted's COPD remedy (DMSO and MSM). These tests and results are not very scientific, but we did follow most of Ted's suggestions. TWO middle-aged males --Former Long Term Smokers-- tried the following:

1.) Drank ONE TABLEspoon of (powdered) MSM in 8 oz glass of water. (This stuff tastes TERRIBLE! May try mixing with juice next time.) 30 minutes later, we each inhaled FIFTY (50) deep breaths of 30% DMSO to 70% water. Neither of us noticed any immediate results.

2.) 5 Hours later, we each inhaled ONE HUNDRED (100) deep breaths from the nebulizer, with the same dilution ratio -- Neither of us noticed any immediate results.

3.) DAY TWO: We each inhaled ONE HUNDRED FIFTY (150) deep breaths from the nebulizer, only at 70% DMSO to 30% water. (NOTE: This may be over the ratio that Ted recommends) Still no results were evident. We were hoping for more noticeable/immediate results, but I believe we just didn't stay with it long enough.

4.) We each tried 70% DMSO to 30% water in an ATOMIZER (Nasal type --Afrin bottle-- DO NOT INHALE THROUGH THE NOSE IF YOU TRY THIS--MOUTH ONLY!!) Each took a VERY DEEP BREATH while getting 5-6 pumps out of the ATOMIZER. (THIS ALSO TASTED UNBELIEVABLY BAD!). Still, no obvious results.

We are suspending our experiments until we decide which approach to continue. I WILL POST ANY ADDITIONAL RESULTS, OR COMMENTS RECEIVED FROM TED. Thanks to EARTHCLINIC AND TED !!

I will email this to Ted and hope he can add some additional comments or suggestions. My questions to Ted, his availability allowing are:

1.) Should we continue with 150 deep inhales of 70% DMSO per day?
2.) If so, about how many days of treatment until we would expect some results?
3.) What are your thoughts on the 70% DMSO/30% water via ATOMIZER?
4.) Are the MSM AND NIACIN (500 MG/DAY, NON TIME RELEASE) crucial to success?
5.) Any other comments or suggestions?




A DMSO may dissolve the tar if the congestion is caused by a tar. If the lungs were damaged physically of non tar in nature, the DMSO won't work. A curcumin taken a couple of times a day or a curcumin mixture with DMSO appears more suitable. A 70% DMSO may hurt the throat or lungs as concentration maybe too high for some people.

1.) Should we continue with 150 deep inhales of 70% DMSO per day?

Most improvement appears that some DMSO was taken internally and some DMSO nebulizers were used but the improvement is a gradual one. A clogged capillaries or a damaged one can be due to tar, calcium or tissue damage. A tissue damage then some healing is needed with a curcumin supplements.

2.) If so, about how many days of treatment until we would expect some results?

It takes at least a month. A short term two or three days would get any results. It's done gradually.

3.) What are your thoughts on the 70% DMSO/30% water via ATOMIZER?

Some people don't like the 70% DMSO as it stings their nose and throat. While its result maybe faster, it maybe irritating.

4.) Are the MSM AND NIACIN (500 MG/DAY, NON TIME RELEASE) crucial to success?

I don't like Niacin use because of the flush, but I do like the addition of MSM and DMSO. A niacin use may help some breathing but never time release. An aspirin taken 30 minutes before a niacin used will stop the flush and may help the capillary circulation into the lungs to be return to some extent by clearing some blocked circulation. But this doesn't resolve the calcification that may occur also.

5.) Any other comments or suggestions?

A damage lung tissue requires healing, and this is where curcumin comes in, taken internally or perhaps what I am looking into is the possibility of adding only a small amount of curcumin as a nebulizer. That's just the current possibilities I am looking into. If it take years for COPD to happen getting results in a matter of days is not possible. An objective measure appears to be a blood oxygen test but after a month's of use. Not all COPD are due to tar, but can also be tissue damage in the lungs, and hence the curcumin. A capillaries may be clogged not from the tar, but also fats and calcium has to be considered also.


Colloidal Silver
Posted by Moe (Ia) on 04/29/2017

In regards to Steve and nebulizing nano silver solution--any side effects? One of my integrative health consultants recommends nebulizing nano silver and zeolite and glutathione. I have severe copd and emphysema and am still somewhat scared to nebulize.

Eliminate Mold

Mold (even black mold) is easily gotten rid of by making a spray from MMS (miracle mineral solution) and spraying it on the mold. The mold will die within 1 hour. It's great.

Colloidal Silver - re comments by Maddy from Nottingham UK 12/7/2006 - can you please advise me the amount of c.s. maddy uses in her nebuliser for bronchiectasis. I have had bronchiectasis for 50 years, now chronic and fed up with antibiotics - maybe she can help. I do not have asthma or can you suggest any other helpline, or can Maddy recommend any special brand of s.c.

Colloidal Silver
Posted by Dave (Fountain Inn, Sc) on 01/05/2012

The colloidal silver will only help with the infection as the silver kills virus/bacteria/fungus. Go back to Ted's idea of using DMSO in the nebulizer for COPD.

For lung infection, use it in the nebulizer also.

For sore throat you gargle the silver liquid and let drain down throat.

For sinus infection, inhale into sinus on both sides three or four times in the space of two hours. Let drain down throat.

For recurring infection in sinus assume the problem may be in the eustasian tubes in ears, a typical source for secondary infections; so use an ear syringe for that possibility.

For possible systemic infections use the silver orally over a two month period twice daily, about two table spoons per dose on empty stomach. If you do not know much about colloidal silver, you do not need to see or taste the silver for there to be a beneficial effect. Even at 5 parts per million (5 atoms of silver to 1 million molecules of water) the silver can accomplish the purpose. And at those levels there will be no "tinting" of the skin, even if taken for two months twice daily as suggested above for possible systemic (whole body) infections.

Barometric Pressure and COPD
Posted by yfandles (Catskill Mts, NY, USA) on 05/25/2020

I've been reading EC for a couple of months. Love this site. I have COPD. Supposedly in final stage. But, I'm pretty stubborn. Was already doing common sense things (diet, vitamins, etc.) when I found EC. Now I've added Hydrogen Peroxide (HP aka H2O2) and Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) with Baking Soda (BS). Am doing much better with these additions. Here's my big question: Does anyone else have issues with humidity and air pressure? I can have a pretty good day, then when the sun goes down and the humidity rises, my breathing becomes labored. Same when a rain or snow storm is coming. My breathing is acting like a barometer. All ideas welcome! Just like all of you out there in EC Land, I thank God several times a day for this site.

Barometric Pressure and COPD
Posted by Linda H. (EC's Facebook Page) on 05/25/2020

I was never diagnosed with COPD but ever since I was a child I couldn't go into steam rooms without almost passing out. Hot showers will do that to if the bathroom isnt well ventilated. Humidity weather wise is a no go also. I can't function and have a hard time breathing. Lower elevation or below sea level causes issues also. I hope the Hydrogen peroxide mixture helps you have a better quality of life. I'd like to try it but I know nothing about it and would have to find someone to teach me how to do it.

You can use a Neubilizer to inhale the 3% food grade hydrogen Peroxide. I also have started neubilizing Colloidal Silver. I also drink lots slots. I have bad Copd and at this point I am willing to try anything. I have just started the neubilizing and have to keep at it. I was told to neubilize the colloidal silver at least 3-4 tildes a day . I just have a difficult time sitting so have to force myself to do the neubilizing.

Apple Cider Vinegar, Borax, Mullein Tea
Posted by Rose (CA) on 12/11/2020

After reading a bit more on that website I had found as well as this earth clinic website. I think I also need to use the nebulizer with the H202 and also use it in the diffuser. It has to get into the lungs and bronchials to kill the bugs.

When I first began trying to combat this ailment, I thought maybe I had CHF... so I had done some research and found 4 supplements to help with CHF. On the COPD website listed in my first comment, I found there are specific supplements that will help for COPD... He mentions them also in his book. But, I have to say the ones I am using that help with CHF also help with COPD. All I'm saying is, don't skip the supplements that are mentioned. There are also breathing exercises that can be done. So, when you combine everything, its a full protocol that can help.

Another thing, I wanted to know is if COPD could be reversed. The guy who wrote the book says it can and he did heal his mom's COPD which also included emphysema. I sure hope it can cuz it is a debilitating ailment.

This is the website with the essential oil/homeopathic remedy I found specifically for COPD. Its a bit pricey... and comes from the UK. I'm still waiting for it. Instructions on how to use it are included.

Just saw this one today for emphysema. I have not purchased this... but I might later if I feel it necessary. First wanna see how the COPD remedy will work.

If you are a smoker... you've got to quit smoking. The video listed in my first post explains why and how it can lead to COPD.

MSM, Supplements

COPD: I have had an extremely wheezy sounding lungs. My GP brother suggests this is the result of smoking which I ceased some 25 years ago. I have been a firm believer in MSM and tried various manufacturers without the success that other cases demostrate. Most importantly is to buy therapeutic level of supplements from a reputable company. Recently I purchased MSM powder 99.9% pure form J---B Lab. Taking: MSM half a teaspoon twice a day.

One dessert spoon of organic coconut oil twice daily. 5 Drops of Vit D, 1,000 mg Vit C powder in a magnesium base. I am going to add Magnesium Citrate and Vit A and start Vit E again and see where we go from here. The results to date have been much less wheezing and loads more energy.
