Greetings, My husband and I have been inhaling H2o2 for almost a year, ( preferring inhalation to ingesting it). We both feel great and are rarely ill. I have noticed in this time that we both have a very strong (bad smelling) body odor. I have noticed a change in my sense of smell and taste. I find that certain foods are impossible for me to eat because they taste too strong ie turnips and the smell of tomato plants. Do you have any suggestions as to what we can do to change our body odor issues as we are both seeing and feeling so many of the benefits associated with the taking of hydrogen peroxide? Thank you for you reply

Hi, Type lime juice youtube video

My wife & I use as a spray once in morning and do not have any B.O. for 24 hours.. Works like a charm

Good luck.

Could not find anything with the "lime juice" search.

Do you mean you dilute lime juice and spray that into mouth/nose? or put in nebulizer?

I suspect BO is toxins from stress causing acidity and then I read that the microbes on our body eat the toxins we excrete in stress and then when they poop that out it stinks.

I've never tried lime juice but lemon juice under the arms will not only stop the odor there but also remove it from whatever you're wearing.

Hi, i have been inhaling 3%hp for the past 3 days and have a slight chest cold. I imagine it is due to a "detoxing" or die off of bad stuff and i would like to know if anyone else has experienced the same. Thanks.

I nebulized with hydrogen peroxide and colloidal silver for a few weeks and did not experience any cold symptoms. But it did seem to loosen up more mucus with some gagging at first and helped a little with COPD, but am now currently nebulizing with liquid MSM.


That is very interesting that you can use your nebulizer and put liquid MSM in it? Where do you get your information? I'm very interested. I use saline in mine.

I began taking HP by the inhalation method (mouth sprinkling), one shot first day and then I increased one more per day until completing 10 shots one time, at 10th day. Then, the following 5 days I changed to 10 shots in the morning, and 5 shots in the afternoon. At 16th day I began to experience deep dreams and difficulty to awake, but besides diurnal drowsiness and fatigue, which affected my productivity a lot, therefore I wanted to be in bed (I work at home). Is a sensation similar to hangover. This sensation was prolonged for 5 days more until I had to stop. Today I have not inhaled the product and I returned to normality. I wanted to experience HP before giving the remedy to my mom, who really needs it.

Now I don't know what to do. Please, someone has experienced the same thing? How did you resolve this issue?

I should say that before the hangover I felt great.

Thank you folks and Earth Clinic.

Have a QUESTION... If doing the inhaling with 3% hydogen peroxide I notice a white thick film developing on my tongue. Easy to spit out but is that normal. Also I am using food grade hydogen peroxide diluted to 3% by using 40ml of the 35% and adding diluted water to make up 500ml. How safe is that?

Replied by Jong

40ml of HP has 14ml of pure H2O2. Adding 500 ml of pure water makes 14 / 540 = 2.6%

So you are using slightly lower % than the usual 3%.

Hello Ted,

My first experience with hydro peroxide was very scary, with a strange side effect. I used 35% FG-HP dilluted to 3% as I have read about. Then mixed 1 drop in a clean 4oz nasal sprayer with 4oz of distilled water.

I then ingested, (inhaled) two fine mist sprays by mouth. About 10 seconds after injesting I felt a very strange "hot rush like feeling" and my heart beat increased to a intense exercise level.

I felt very light headed & dizzy. However, my heart rate did slow down after a few minutes and I was fine except, my head and ears were very warm as if I had a fever...

My first though was that maybe I used too much for the first time.

The next day, I mixed one TLB spoon of the 3% in 32oz of the distilled water.

I took just three small sips, and the very same thing happened just not as intense..

I'm too scared to try it again. My question is: Do you know what is happening and why HP effects me this way?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

Diluting 35% is a tricky business. You might have made too strong of a solution. This is why I tell people to buy the 3% from the drugstore and use that. It is easier, simpler and you never have to worry about the concentration. Please send me an email with your phone number and I will call you.

Hello i have tried out this about 5 months ago and i got 3 colds in a row before that,so i was on the net looking for ways to stop cold,s and came to this site somehow but glad i found it anyways i have been doing it for 5 months now and i have never breathed better and my nose is clear 24 hours a day and this is no lie. Also i have used 3% from drug stores and also have the Food Grade 35% which you delute it to 3% one once to 12 ounces of good water , or you put 35% in a blue glass eyedropper type bottle and there is a table to go by and its like this : take 3 drops put it in a 12oz glass of water 3 times a day then every day after add one more drop till you get to 25 drops then reverse it till you get back to 3 drops and stay at 3 drops a day 3 times a day. But spray pump works great also so its up to you how you want to use it.

Same thing occurd with me, and I was told I had to start with a minuscule amount and slowly build to a maximum amount of I think it was 30 drops in 16oz of water a day. But you had to start with 1 drop in that amount of water and daily add a drop until you reach the maximum. I'm not sure about that 30 drops so if you search around the site I think you will come up with the right number.

Bill's inhalation method turned my tongue yellowy green for more than two weeks though. I only did it for about two weeks and then saw that my tongue was yellowy green. This lasted for about two and a half weeks and freaked me out. I put lemon juice in my water and I think that helped get rid of it. I just want readers to know that this is a risk. However, I am going to try the other method - ingesting the 35% food grade H202. I will let you know how I get on. Danny. If anybody wants to talk to me about this, Bill has my phone number.

I am having a strange side effect.... my tongue, towards the back of my mouth as far back as I can see, has turned brown with yellow at the edges. It also feels "fuzzy" like all the "buds"(sorry I don't know the technical term) are all "riled up". I am not scared, but have discontinued the method until I can identify what is happening. I still believe this is a helpful remedy and would like to continue if this is just a symptom of detoxing.

What strength of H202 are you using? And how do you have it diluted? Sounds like you are using far too strong of a solution.

I used hydrogen peroxide (food grade mix to 3% mixture), that I inhaled. I misted and inhaled and I couldn't breath had to call 911. Thought I was going to pass out. Scared the hell out of me.

Sinus Issues

I am so interested in trying the inhalation method of peroxide therapy. I have suffered from chronic sinus problems for years. My left ear has been plugged for over two years now. The older I get, the more congestion I have in my lungs, even though I have never been a smoker. How exactly do I inhale this? Do you spray on the tongue and then breathe in or do you breathe in at the same time you spray in mouth (like you would an asthma inhaler)?

I am also wondering if there is any danger of this therapy while on prescription medications. I take Tramadol almost daily due to the headaches from sinus problems. I am hopeful that H2O2 will take care of my problems and that I will be off this med ASAP.

Thanks...so grateful to have found this site!!

hi - i just wanted to ask if you have ever tried the sea salt and water remedy? you add sea salt (i think 1 teaspoon per cup of water - you can look up the exact measurement on-line - i just do it by feel) and hold one nostril and snort the water mix into your sinuses and it will come out your mouth. do this several times with both nostrils. they sell neti pots for this at health food stores - or you can use a baby ear cleaning bulb syringe - but i always just use a bowl. this should clean all the crud out of your sinuses so that good bacteria can be there instead of the bad. i've also heard that people had luck adding baking soda or apple cider vinegar to the mixture.

also garlic minced and a few drops of water added (take the clear liquid) and snort it works to heal sinus infections - but it does hurt for a moment. the sea salt mixture does not hurt.


You are on the right track. At 72, I have had sinus problems for a number of years until I began to do the things recommended on this site a few years ago. I have developed my own regimen which keeps my breathing open both night and day. I do Bill's hydrogen peroxide thing at daylight and dark. I also mix a nasal spray of 1/4 tsp of sea salt , 1/4 tsp of baking soda and 5 drops of Grapefruit Seed Extract into 1/4 cup of distilled water. I spray this into my nostrials when I do the hp.

I then clean the mucus out as best I can. I no longer have to breath through my mouth and my headach's are gone. GSE is a natural fungicide and is used to kill black mold in homes that are deemed uninhabitable. It will do in lots of bad stuff.

We have a berry farm and use it on all our picked berries to prevent deterioration. Most sales folks spray it in their motel rooms before spending the night. As Hulda Clark says in her books.....mold, fungus and parisites are the root cause of most illiness'.

Hi Keri, you need to go read Bill's instructions, but yes, you spray the H202 toward the back of your throat as you inhale - the same as with asthma inhalants.

Replied by Howard

Spraying H202 into the lungs will certainly help with relief of congestion but for sinus problems it is probably better to use 3 percent H202 broken down 50percent with water and ,using a nose dropper introduce 4/5 drops directly into each nostril.Do this by laying on a couch or bed with your head hanging over the side. It will sting somewhat (no use lying )but will be worth it in the long run.Depending on the severity of the blockage do this twice daily for 2 days once daily for 3 days. Of course back off or stop if you get full relief at an earlier stage.Best of good luck and happy New Year

Hi, My name is Raoul and I have Asthma, Bronchitis and Allergic to pretty much everything. (I love my cats! :P)

Ive just used a 1.5% FG HP in the mouth and 1 spray up each nostril to stop a allergic reaction to something i've been in contact with. After a slight tingle, the irritation seems to have stopped (withing 1 minute) after 10 mins it still feels the inside of the nostrils is still a bit swollen (from the reaction). And sinds its nearly bed time I wont inhale it just yet. (i need every minute on my 4 sleep-cycles :P) ill keep you guys posted on the progress.

To all the future users: get Food grade HP. Use distilled water to dilute. Don't fear, let Knowledge guide you!

Hi again, Report: the 2 sprays up the nostrils stoped the running nose for about 20 mins, than it started running again.

The next day I started inhaling the 1.5% FG HP first 2 sprays then 4, apart from a slicht tingely feeling I dont feel more releaved. gotta check what regular use does, might try 3% next could be the dose is too low.

Keep ya posted.

after years of adult onset asthma, i feel "a lot" better since taking a tsp. of straight cider vinegar at night before bed. i hardly ever wake up wheezing, anymore. also, i have tried peroxide inhalation (50/50 mix of 3% peroxide with water in a spray bottle 2x a day.) stings like heck at first, but i can breathe through my nose again. i also take 1500 mg, or more, of vitamin c per day. i feel great again!

I was a habitual smoker and by following the Bill Monro method as explained in his video my lungs and sinuses are now clean and I don't want to smoke anymore. When I do smoke occasionally I inhale hp just before or after I smoke and It seems to cancel the bad effect of the smoke! I also instinctively want to eat more nutritionally. I would say I feel much better all around as a result of following Bill's method.

Hello EC, Can anybody help please? I inhaled too much 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide using a facial sauna (I know someone who uses HP this way). This was 8 days ago & at first the top of my lungs started to feel like they were burning. I still have an ache (on & off) at the top of my right lung despite regular tap water steam facial saunas, exercise & drinking water to try to ease the effects. I had to visit the local hospital at first & I have an appointment soon with a chest specialist. I stopped the HP as soon as I realised something was wrong. Is there anything else I can do to calm things down & to limit any possible damage?

Hi Tim, Sorry for delayed response & thank you for the suggestion.

Whilst I was enquiring about mullein locally, fortunately everything was calming down with ordinary tap water drinking & steam inhalation & thank God everything seems ok now but once again thank you for your response.


Steaming Vs Inhalation
Posted by Sumesh (Mumbai, India) on 08/19/2009


Hi -

I am a 36 year old male and suffer from chronic back problem (dull ache from nape of neck to lumbar region) for almost 16 years. Also during the last 4-5 years used develeop sore throat 3-4 times in year and had to use antibiotics. I also started getting frequent stomach infections which again had to be contolled using antibiotics

During last 2 years I have switched to more natural foods and cut down on processed foods and eating out in restaurants. I also started exercising regularly and since then I feel better....sore throats have become less intense and more manageable...haven't had a stomach infection in 2 years now and back also feels better and stronger. However I am not completely cured, there's still some muscular pain in the entire back region and my body still feels tired . I still get sore throat...the last one being about 3 weeks back.

So I first tried drinking h202 3-5 drops in 8oz of water for a week, but it caused acidity and I could n't eat properly ..so i discontinued it.Even 2 weeks after discontinuing intake of h202 the acidity continued. And by chance I started drinking a cupful of milk in morning and after about a weeks it cured the acidity .

Then i tried with nose inhaler, but it didn't work out since it not giving out a fine mist ( rather it worked like a spray bottle) and so I dicontinued it also. Then i read other posts on this site regarding using nebulizer.

I have started inhaling 3% ( 35% Food grade diluted to 3%-1 part h202 and 11 parts distilled water) hydrogen peroxide two days back using a nebulizer. Although generally i feel better- mind is more alert, breathing is deeper and i think i could work out better at the gym for last 2 days.

But there are two side effects that I have felt after taking h202 inhalations- 1) I have developed severe pharyngitis (sore throat and it hurts) and my voice has become hoarse and 2) I have noticed that my tongue has a yellowish coating.

I have some questions which I would request Mr Bill Munro to answer.

a) Could it be that there's some problem with quality of h202 that i am using or aree these symptoms signs of "healing crisis"?

b) should I continue taking h202 inhalations despite the sore throat or should i stop it for a day to two and then continue again?

c) Should I use a lower dilution for sometime instead of 3% dilution ?

Thank you in advance.

Warm Regards,
Sumesh, India

Hello Sumesh! I've been inhaling H2O2 per Bill's instructions for two months now and am pain free. I had the same reaction (sore throat and hoarse voice) for a little while but it all went away in the first couple of weeks. Don't give up!

Hi Deb

Thanks so much for your response. Yes I will continue with the inhalation. I actually used a lower dilution 2% for last 2 days and the throat is already better. I will start using 3% from today and I hope I will have similar results.

Btw, I am able to do it only twice a day -before going to work and after returninng from work-since I can't find a good nasal spray bottle

Thanks again.


PS- if anybody has had a similar experience, please share for the benefit of others.Thanks

Steaming Vs Inhalation
Posted by Mikeleekc (Subang Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia) on 07/26/2009

I read with much interest on the Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation Method by Bill Munro and also all the reader responses to his method. I am just wondering whether can be adapted to use an ultrasonic nebulizer e.g. like those used for asthma, bronchitis conditions. Maybe breathing in the mist will be much easier and since the particles are smaller and more uniform, it will get to the lungs better. can anyone please share their experience/opinions on this.

Replied by Michael
(Honolulu, Hi)

Since a ultrasonic nebulizer simply vibrates the H2O2 solution into a mist, it will work. A machine that creates heat will affect the solution. My thoughts on this venture lead toward efficiency and practicality. The pump sprayer is fast, portable, and it works just fine. A ultrasonic nebulizer would be just a fancy and expensive way of achieving the same result.

I am using a portable steam inhaler to inhale the HP. My question is this: How much 3% HP should I add to the water? My inhaler uses 1/4 cup of water. I have been adding a scant 1/4 tsp. Does this sound right? I would appreciate any feedback.
