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.
Replied By Marigold (Usa) on 05/30/2014Just an update - I'm still using h2o2 in my nebulizer. I now use 2 droppers of peroxide to 2 droppers of distilled water. I feel better than ever, starting to exercise. I don't use my prescribed Flovent Disk much at all because I hate the side effects. I still use my Ventolin HFA for emergencies.
This time of year, the humidity causes me real problems. I have a dehumidifier running and take cheapo, Dollar Store Allergy Relief ($6). Those two things plus the nebulized h2o2 have helped more than any of the high dollar prescriptions.
We do need to remember that all of this isn't a one size fits all. Some things work better for others.
Replied By Jamo (Nc) on 02/26/2015May 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.
Replied By David (Az) on 10/28/2015You say 2 droppers of peroxide, describe, 3% or 35% food grade
Replied By Leanna (Nj) on 08/06/2017definitely 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.
