I tried Hydrogen Peroxide a couple of times 2 years ago when I was having severe issues that the doctors could not help. 8 months of coughing up blood and having to sit up in bed due to what sounded exactly like a death crackle if I lay down at even a 45 degree angle! I felt like my chest was made of glass. CT scan showed no cancer. O2 levels were not too bad at that time though they would drop to 80 at night. During waking hours rarely got below 92. Still struggled to breathe though.
In desperation, I used Hydrogen Peroxide in nebulizer diluted (regular 3 percent over the counter from CVS). I only did this a few times over 2-3 days and when I went to the pulmonary specialist for a checkup my o2 level that day read 100 percent. I HAD NEVER seen that and actually it scared me a little so I stopped the peroxide. Things improved for a time until I was put on Arava for Autoimmune issues. Immediately breathing issues. Rheumie seemed unconcerned and even angry that I had adjusted my dose to 1 every 2 days just to breathe for a few days and still be able to walk!!
Long story short, fast forward to Rheumie halving the dose and instructing me to take 1 every other day and persist until side effects cleared up. THEY NEVER did and my breathing got worse and worse. I realize now I probably was getting infections that they were ignoring due to the Arava lowering my immune system. I no longer run fever after a lifetime of severe medical problems so can be quite ill with no fever but doctors only take you serious if your blood work shows really high elevations of Neut/Lymph etc. and mine were only small elevations and my temperature actually would go in the opposite direction. The sicker I get the LOWER it goes. I have seen it at 95 many mornings. And yes Thyroid checked.
Long story short I progressed to being unable to breathe at night. Sleepless nights wondering if I should go to ER. Palpitations(both PVC and PAC) coming about every 3 to 10 beats. Nebulizer meds and even a dose of Racepinephrine at times offered little help. The past month I had gotten so bad I could not walk 10 feet for the weakness and palpitations and shortness of breath. I did not want to go to ER and be put on a Ventilator. I was literally waiting to die at home and struggling to breathe is no fun so I knew I would eventually give in and go to the hospital one of those nights. My o2 levels were now dropping to 80 while still awake which they had never ever done.
I had been afraid to use the Peroxide again due to the unknowns, but now things were critical I felt. I LITERALLY FELT IT WAS die or try it again. THREE days ago I nervously tried putting some peroxide in my nebulizer cup and leaving the mouthpiece off. I would put my mouth over it for a second and breathe it in deeply. I only did this 3 times with the full strength peroxide. Only did it about 3 times both days. WELL LAST NIGHT MY o2 levels did not drop below 91 and mostly hovered at 92 to 94 before falling asleep. THIS MORNING I WOKE UP AND HAD SLEPT THRU THE NIGHT without having to wake up to do a breathing treatment. I did not cough up anything much this a.m. I could take a deep breath and the PVC and PAC were down to maybe 1 or 2 a minute instead of 20-30 a minute!! BUT THE BEAUTY of the side effects was I COULD WALK when I got up today. My RA and PSA seemed greatly improved. I had energy for the first time in 6 months!!!
I am crying now because today is the first day in months that I believe I might be able to see my grandkids for Christmas!! I was not sure I would even still be here by Christmas! I cannot tell you what it feels like to be able to take a deep breath and walk more than a few feet without resting!!!! I am optimistic that I will continue to improve.
THANK ALL OF YOU FOR POSTING or I may have been too afraid of doing more harm. I think I may live now though.
I am now convinced that I have had mold and bacteria in my lungs causing most of these issues and doctors just don't treat these I have long found. The peroxide is killing it off I believe. I take 7 days a month of an antifungal (itraconazole) and my doc kept saying if it was fungs in my lungs the antifungal should take care of it. SHE IS WRONG WRONG WRONG.

Better But With Side Effects
I started on the H202 protocol 12 days ago. Drinking 3x a day. Plus the spay pump and every once in a while the nebulizer. Since I have started, I am coughing constantly and wheezing. I recently had pneumonia and was told I have early stages of copd. I am still taking my prescription inhalers as needed.....Is this part of the healing crisis???? I hope Is that normal? I am getting nervous. Anyone else experienced coughing and wheezing while going through this? Help
I think one of the most frustrating things about Earth Clinic is the confusion it generates for many. It's hard to find a protocol that someone uses that is clear, concise and well-written. What would it take to simply outline your own routine--with the products used, the amount you take and how often. How hard is that?
So, I have asthma that is bordering on COPD. I came here to learn more about hydrogen peroxide inhalation, and of course, I had to wade through hundreds of confusing posts to get to the main idea and come up with a plan.
So, to help others, here is what I learned and what I am now doing:
I don't have a nebulizer handy and didn't want to wait to order one. So, I went out to the drugstore and bought a store brand nasal inhaler. I also bought plain over-the-counter hydrogen peroxide. The man who started this protocol used plain hydrogen peroxide for 20 years to no ill effect, and if it's good enough for him, then certainly it is good enough for me.
I came home and cleaned out the nasal spray bottle and put it in boiling water for a minute to cleanse and sterilize it. Then I filled it up with the hydrogen peroxide. Then I inhaled and sprayed a few squirts toward the back of my throat. I squirted two or three times.
I did not dilute the hydrogen peroxide with distilled water. I did exactly what the man who started this all did. Don't worry about food grade peroxide and nebulizers and all the other stuff if you don't choose to. In fact, to start this protocol to see if you want to continue, just start out with these basic supplies and try it that way. If you want to graduate to the food grade H202 and a fancy delivery system, you can always add these things after an initial trial period.
Spraying it into your throat and inhaling may take some practice, but after a few times you'll figure out the best system.
I was having a huge asthma exacerbation and this immediately lessened it. I was amazed.
I also bought a netti pot. I cleaned out my sinuses, got rid of the offending allergens and immediately felt better.
I plan to do the netti pot three times a day and the inhalation protocol three times a day as well. I am starting with short short blasts of the inhalation protocol three times a day.
I will report back again.
All of these products are easily bought at a local pharmacy at very little expense.
I hope this helps people who come here and are reading through pages of comments with very few directives, lists or protocols mentioned.
You can always put a disclaimed at the bottom of your post that says, "I claim no responsibility for the health of others, blah, blah, blah."
Good luck everyone. I am so excited that after one session with both of my new regimens that I am already feeling some relief. And completely drug free, too. Zyrtec is expensive and really hasn't helped me much for a while.

I have used food grade peroxide for five years. I have used the atomizing spray method at 3 % for colds and lung infections over that period. As a pneumonia survivor one is always wary of contracting it again. I was recently in the hospital for exposure to black mold. I began my peroxide therapy a week before I went in the hospital. The doctor's first question was if I had pneumonia prior. When I told him yes he cautioned me the mold exposure put me at high risk.
I continued my therapy throughout the stay in the hospital. In the end the doctors were amazed at my lung capacity and the clearing of the spots in my lungs in less than four days. I have used peroxide for many different ailments over the years, with nothing but success. At sixty four years old the doctors were amazed at my low blood pressure, lung capacity and condition of my heart. I attribute much of that good health to a peroxide regiment. I have no problem accepting the success stories I read on this site.
Better But With Side Effects
I am a smoker and have shortness of breath, I thought I would try bill munroe's hydrogen peroxide inhalation, I have been doing this for about a week or 10 days. I do believe my shortness of breath might be a "little" better but I am so tired I cannot hardly stay awake. I usually get 5-6 hrs sleep per night but now am getting 7-8 hr sleep @ night and have no energy at all. Is this from the hydrogen peroxide inhalation or do you think it would be something else? I am thinking of quitting the hydrogen peroxide, what does everyone think? Thanks.
Off and on w/the drug store brand of hydrogen peroxide 3% as needed like the man said BUT this go round am serious as I have what appears and sounds to be deep bronchitis for weeks. I will make it my business to do the inhalations at least 3Xs a day. The inhalation of the 3% definitely kicks butt and works when needed.
I have been researching holistic approaches to cancer as well as reversing the effects of damage to lung tissue from smog, chemicals and pollutants in the air we breath.
My father has had asthma since he was 6 years old and I am going to recommend he try the nasal pump with 3% hydrogen peroxide for his condition. I first heard about this method from a neighbor of mine who claims he cured his dad's lung cancer by providing him with hydrogen peroxide through a nebulizer. I was fascinated! I am fed up with the FDA mafia trying to make money and take advantage of the sick at such an exhorbitant price. Techniques like these cannot even legally be administered as a practice here in the states. Only surgery and chemo are currently legal. Its sad, not to mention downright wrong and immoral that we cannot share these alternate methods freely with the public without having to look over our shoulder or risk getting shut down if we use the wrong verbatim for advertising or information.
Question: I'm entertaining hydrogen peroxide inhalation for recurring lung infections complicated by Sarcoidosis in my lungs. Does anyone have any information on hydrogen peroxide inhalation and sarcoidosis? Thank you.

I have suffered with lung infections on a grand scale since 1999. Tests have ruled out genetic immune or enzyme disorders of any kind. I have never been a smoker but my parents were and my mother died of emphysema. I am now 56. I have been on antibiotics almost continuously for many years mainly for Haemophilus influenzae or Pseudomonas. The latter being responsible for hospitalization for IV administration of antibiotics. A tough time indeed. As soon as the antibiotics are finished an infection returns. The organisms of the past few years were not antibiotic resistant. Of course this has no doubt lead to lung damage and a diagnosis of probable COPD etc. No recent CT to prove but symptoms and a FEV of 3.2 suggestive if continued decline of lung function and disability by way of physical impairment. My Dr noting a lung transplant as my only hope if needed in the future. Gene therapy another maybe one day. Anyway the last time I completed my 8 week antibiotic treatment the infection and lung inflammation started to return once again!
This time after reading the experiences and advice regarding peroxide at 3% inhalation I decided to try it before more antibiotics. The effect was rapid. The usual bad tasting light green phlegm disappearing within days. I have only been using it around a week so far. And with the exception of a slight sore throat no adverse reactions to report. If this works I expect an increase of life expectancy of many years. I shall report again in due course. As for lung function improvement I do not have any data to advise as yet. Also I still struggle with discomfort in the chest/lung area. But again time will tell.

Very interested in what Shar from BC writes about lungs heating up (I also have this) and nebulizing. Am experimenting with H2O2 right now using mist spray in mouth but it's not doing the job - feel I need nebulizer to reverse it. Have lots of itching on chest and sometimes in head - ears feel a pressure from time to time- times fatigued - feel stuff is surfacing out of lung. Guess I would call this a chronic sinus/Lung infection. Andrea from Wales, can you also suggest how to proceed carefully - should I use 1 1/2% food grade. I am 73 and very sensitive to things, but want to take care of this without going to MD. Any tips or help will be immensely appreciated. My immense gratitude for this site and all the good people willing to share their expertise. Dee
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. I would be happy to talk to anyone who has questions or needs to speak to a real person. They can email me any time at [email protected] Thank you Earth Clinic and thank you Bill Munroe for giving me a chance to live my life, instead of biding my time!!!

Hi- I live in Costa Rica and have a lung infection which nearly killed me 5 yrs prior- I returned to Florida USA and my lungs cleared up to the point that I no longer fell asleep during a conversation or while stopped at red lights while driving- however I am constantly tired and now ( returned to Costa rica) I am re-infected ( flare up?) I am extremely tired and dizzy- I went to emergency room here and was diagnosed with lung infection and prescribed antibiotics( dont know the name of infection) however after reading this post I want to try adding 3% peroxide to C-Pap machine and I am starting to inhale 3% diluted- to spray bottle. The 1st night I tried inhaling- I couldn't get to sleep ( a very rare thing) so I thought it was working- I am currently inhaling 3% diluted- label says ( in spanish)3 grams hydrogen peroxide and vehiculo csp 100 ml- anyone have experience with adding to C-pap machine and anyone know where to buy more potent peroxide in CR?
Definite "yea" still using cvs brand 3% diluted 50-50 only 2whiffs twice a day--lungs have basically cleared out , no more technicoloured cr_p, white to clear, easily "expectorated", small amounts --will continue as a "maintenance" as well--Thank you for this website and the info and to all that participate-!
I just took 2 "whiffs" of the cvs brand 3% HP that was diluted to half strength--I will repeat this at bedtime-
I confess to being a heavy smoker with chronic bronchitis and not maintained on any prescriptives or any inhalors..... Will use garlic/fresh lemon juice or garlic/ACV if I feel the "need" to-when the congestion gets "heavy"/fever, this stuff works to break it up and you will cough it up and out- And am now aware of chronic fatigue type of tiredness and a very deep congestion, esp on the lower on the right side, and wheezing-....... So here I am! And will increase the number of sprays and inhalations and strength of this solution but will continue to use the 3% chain store brand the same as Mr Munro does himself- and I will write back God willing in one week's time to let you know what's up--
But you know what ? I truly EXPECT an improvement-- as others have posted... The HP supplies 0xygen and anybody that ever flushed out an infected area knows how it busts up pus etc and will do the exact same thing on pockets of pure phlegm, mucus plugs etc--and you simply cough all the misery out.
I've just started H202 for chronic bronchitis. I'm up to 11 drops three times a day. Now I want to use it in a nebulizer too. What strength should I use? Should it be straight 3% or mixed with distilled water? I'm super cautious because my lungs have caused me so much trouble over the years. But I want results like Bill Munro talks about.
