EC: "Bronchiectasis is a disease that causes localized, irreversible dilation of part of the bronchial tree. It is classified as an obstructive lung disease, along with bronchitis and cystic fibrosis. Involved bronchi are dilated, inflamed, and easily collapsible, resulting in airflow obstruction and impaired clearance of secretions. Bronchiectasis is associated with a wide range of disorders, but it usually results from necrotizing bacterial infections, such as infections caused by the Staphylococcus or Klebsiella species or Bordetella pertussis."

Tried the dropper of brown bottle (3%) hydrogen peroxide mixed with a dose of saline solution (the standard prescribed nebulizer dose) through a nebulizer - the effects were great - one dose and my lungs are completely clear (after 2 months of Abuteral, meds, had no effect)
One thing - right after I finished with the nebulizer I coughed up so much phlegm and stuff from my lungs and then all was clear and I could breath normal again - first time in months - just be careful if your lungs are too congested that you loosen everything up slowly.

Hi, I would like to know if I need to dilute my food grade 3% HP. I got it at a health food store. I tried it in my nebulizer for my lungs, but it makes my throat sore and I cough a lot. It does make me spit up phlem. I need to know if I'm doing it right. I also tried it by mixing it with a little bit of distilled water, but like to know if I should just do it without mixing it with the distilled water since it only 3%.
The problems that I have with my lungs is caused by psuedamonis bacteria. I'm hoping and praying for my miracle.

I use food grade hydrogen peroxide for my arthritis and would like to know how to use it for my COPD, inhaling it if possible.
Hello everyone in this amazing site. I am very happy to discover you. :-)
I am Phil from Athens Greece 45yo. I suffer from tinnitus and insomnia by 12 December 2010. I do get antidepressants and tachycardia and tinnitus pills. I have already started to drink ACV and get extra zeolite (btw... Why this wonderful natural thing is absent from here???) and sometimes ginkgo biloba oral drops. I am a heavy smoker (27 years aprox. 50 per day) that I manage to cut down to 15-20 per day due to my tinnitus. Try though to quit this bastard completely. These days I've started oil pulling.
My question is, whether I could be able to inhale H2O2 as a general improvement of my health and if I can... "wash away" evil stuff from my lungs.
Many greetings to you all, and please.... Nobody put it down! . It is our health vs pharmaceutical profits after all. WE WILL WIN!!

I have been taking Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) and Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) for about a week now and am amazed. 2Tbls in water 3 times a day and H2O2 spritzed into my throat twice a day - when I remember. Got used to the ACV quickly, the H2O2 still tastes like crap but they are working wonders so I keep on. Had sinus infection for decades and, as a smoker, congested lungs. Both cleared up within a week! Also, pain in right shoulder and left elbow is gone.
Came here to find a solution for a friend's sore throat. Number one cure was Cayenne which she can't take. Two days later I woke with a sore throat so on the way for coffee I stopped at a store and got some Cayenne. Put a 1/4 tsp in my coffee and before I finished the cup, the sore throat was gone. Amazing. Thank you EC for all the help. Next, 5-HTP for chronic depression.

Pulmonary Fibrosis. For the past 11 days I have been taken 35% up to 75 drops daily. My lungs are in the process of being cured. my ears are begining to open once again. My chest is beginning to feel almost in order once again. Amen! I have additional energy, breathing is coming back in short spans, yet it is coming back... The Doctors reports as of 2 weeks back is Cancer in the Lung... Yet, I mentioned the product to him, and he made another apointment for the 31st of this month. I will let you know.
I have a friend who had been diagnosed with Mesothelioma and he spent his life savings of over 450K on modern medical treatments that got him nowhere. He then searched the internet with a relative that is an R.N. and found out about Hydrogen Peroxide therapy. He used the food-grade hydrogen peroxide, a few drops in his drinks and also Coral Calcium and a few months or so later...walah...NO CANCER!!! I believe the HP cleansed his body/lungs and the Coral Calcium strengthened him. Thank God that he found this! He is a really neat guy!
EC: One of our most popular treatments, Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation, is great for lung conditions!
Northern Europe has been adversely affected as a result of a volcano eruption in Iceland (note - Iceland not Ireland) and until today the most affected have been those travelling by airline as the volcanic ash has been high and airplanes cannot travel through it. To-day reports are saying that the ash over us is now between ground and 20,000 ft. This is obviously going to play havoc with those who have compromised airways and maybe adversely affect those who are healthy. The obvious advice is a mask but what other precautions should we be taking and if we do end up having to inhale this stuff, how do you chelate it from the lungs.
Usually, in this country a week rarely passes without rainfall. This week has given us glorious sunshine and little wind which does mean that the ash will not move or dissipate quickly.
One nice thing has been that the skies are lovely and blue without the stain of contrails and chemtrails.
The Thyroid, Iodine and Asthma
Here is an article which might help people suffering with lung problems in general. This interesting article is by Dr David Berry who specializes in the use of dessicated thyroid and lugol's iodine with respect to asthma and lung problems and whose research, experience and advice in this area is extensive and is, perhaps, a good illustration as to why adequate amounts of iodine are so necessary and important in our diets.
Here is what he has to say:
"In the mid 1980s I had a chronic asthma patient who developed an inflammation of his thyroid. After consultation with an endocrinologist he was put on Eltroxine (T4). One day when the patient came in later he mentioned that the thyroid treatment improved his asthma considerably. At the same time, my office receptionist had severe asthma since the age 12 requiring constant medications and multiple hospital visits. She knew about the results on this patient, she asked if she could try thyroid as well. I started her on 180 mg of desiccated thyroid and within a month raised her to 250 mg. This was in about 1986. She has been free of asthma symptoms since then. She still takes some medication occasionally but has not been in hospital for asthma since.
Encouraged by these results, I proceeded to work my way through all of my chronic asthma patients. At the time there were 22 severe asthmatics who came into my office on a regular basis for asthma attacks. Some came into the office once a month (or more often when in trouble) and some twice a year. Over about a 2-3 year period I gradually put all of them on desiccated thyroid. All patients improved tremendously. I would not say all of them were completely cured but the improvement was striking. Two things followed from this. By 1990 all asthma patients were on thyroid and thus from 1990 to 2002, I did not see another acute asthma attack in my office and none of these 22 patients came in for their asthma. The other slightly embarrassing problem was for a few months my waiting room became quite slow because of the absence of these asthma patients. From there I went on to learn what other benefits thyroid medication might have.
So it is my impression asthma is a low thyroid problem which can be better controlled and dealt with by thyroid treatment. Two patients who have been on these doses of thyroid for more than 15 years have had bone density tests show their bone density was completely normal. Prednisone (cortisone) used for acute severe asthma attacks has more serious potential for causing bone problems. Thyroid treatment, especially with supplementary iodine (Lugol's one drop daily) does not alter bone density short term or long term.
The only literature I can find on asthma and thyroid hormone was from the early part of the last century when many physicians found thyroid improved asthma. One 1911 study in a large Paris asthma clinic found thyroid treatment effective treatment for asthma.(1) However, adrenaline was discovered at the same time. Consequently all severe asthma patients went on daily injections of adrenaline for many years. The potential for using thyroid to help asthma was gradually forgotten. There was a study in 1968 in which they used growth hormone and thyroid to treat asthmatic children. They attributed the improvement to the growth hormone not the thyroid. (2) It has been noted repeatedly that asthma incidence is increasing in all age groups. I feel this is the result of a lower intake of iodine occurring in many families from decrease consumption of table salt. (3-6) The lower intake of iodine tends to make thyroid glands work poorly and cause hypothyroidism and thus increase the chances of asthma in those who are susceptible.
We know that by tracing radioactive thyroid hormone injected into animals shows the hormone concentrates in the aveoli of the lungs. These are the lower air sacs that we have to exchange oxygen with. Also for a good 100 years iodine preparations have been used on chronic chest problems and asthmatics. Iodine is excreted in the lung mucus. In fact iodine in excreted in all mucous secretions such as the mouth(saliva) stomach, bowels, cervix, and lungs. The iodine in the mucous likely helps to kill any bacteria or viruses. Thus both iodine and thyroid hormone are involved in lung physiology. For example most, if not all, sleep apnea patients are fixed with adequate doses of thyroid. Chronic obstructive lung disease (COPD) also is helped by thyroid hormone treatment.
The amount of iodine in the lung mucus possibly explains the paradox that the Japanese who are amongst the heaviest smokers in the world also have one the lowest lung cancer rates. It is likely the high levels of iodine in their blood is excreted in the lung mucus. This iodine then by apoptosis (natural cell death)could be killing off any abnormal cells as they develop that are caused by the cigarette carcinogens. In addition iodine reacts directly with carcinogens and chemical to render them inactive. (7) The Japanese have had an average dietary iodine intake of about 10 mg for many centuries. If the level of iodine intake is above 2-3 mg daily then the thyroid gland becomes saturated within two weeks and does not take iodine up anymore. Thus the most of the iodine can then go to the other parts of the body to carry out iodine's mulitple important functions. The most important of these is relataed to killing off of pre-cancerous abnormal cells. Our intake of iodine as laid down by the WHO is around 15-200 micrograms. This is about one tenth the needed dose to saturate the thyroid gland. So most iodine or a large part of the dietary iodine in Westerners goes to the thyroid gland. This leaves less than optimal amounts going to the rest of the body."

"Ion Ozone is toxic: Ion electrostatic precipitators release small doses of ozone as a byproduct, ozone is toxic and can eat away at the tissue of your lungs."
So, the question remains, how much is 'small dosage' and how much can each individual handle?
I owned the Sharper Image's (I know product names are not supposed to be used, but I am adamant about people knowing about this company as there is a class action suit against them with regards to its unhealthy ozone emissions) Ionic Breeze air purifier. Over the course of 4 years, my families health deteriorated. It was slow, unnoticeable and very damaging. We finally are on the road back to recovery, but not completely out of the woods.
Also beware of work environments that use this type of air purification as well.
All in all, if you were like me (my family) and you have a host of ailments that numerous Dr's. are not able to pin point or help, and you own/use any ionic type devices, stop. Give it at least a month, and if your symptoms don't subside, at least you will know it has nothing to do with the ozone being emitted by these ionic type devices. You'll have nothing to lose and everything to gain.
FYI- A parent of one of my son's teammates is a RN at a well known hospital here in the Valley, and I told her about the Ionic Breeze and how harmful it has been on myself and my family and she immediately replied "Oh yeah, you can't use those...they can cause lung cancer, we see it all the time."
Reduce lung infections from alpha 0ne antitrypsin deficiency:
My history has been 3-4 lung infections per year, all my life. Antibiotics were my only salvations for infections. I now use a small pinch of organic MSM and a couple of sprays of colloidal silver in my inhalation treatments every other day with no infections for over a year.The projected life span for a AATD is about 55 years if you're a non smoker. I am now 70. We discovered I had AATD about 8 years ago. I have incorporated several herbs since then trying to keep me going with fair results. If anyone is interested in my system, contact me.
