I too have had coldsores all my life and am 50 yrs old now. I had a sore in the inside of my nose for 3 days , first I dapped peroxide.3% on the outside and the inside where I felt it sore and there was no change into the 3rd day. On the 3rd day I inhaled 3 or 4 puffs of a mix of half water and half .3% peroxide cheap Wal -Mart kind, from a 2 oz spray bottle that you can buy at Wal Mart for .50 in the toothpaste aisle where they have travel size items, and 2 hours later all the nose pain was GONE and no longer had a sore in my nose , it vanished. I also used Apple cider Vinegar the off brand at Wal- Mart GV . It's such a great value too, only $2.99 and I take the pinch or 1/4th tsp of Baking Soda and 2 TBLS of APPLE CIDER VINEGAR in 4 oz of COLD WATER and it has lowered my heartrate from 117 to 72.This has also lowered my BLOOD PRESSURE from to 112/60 I feel full of energy and I do this before I eat first thing in the morning and last thing at night. I sometimes take it at NOON for a pick me up. I no longer have acid reflux/ GERD. I sleep and breathe better as I have sleep apnea.

Total H202 Routine:

I have used the H202 inhalation method for years and it has been very effective for colds or other sinus infections. Once I notice a cold coming on at Day 1, I do the Munro throat spray routine at 3%, for about 3x's. Then I move on to a mix of 1.5% H202 in the nasal sprayer (3% is too much for your nasal linings), then I do a routine of H202 in my ears for 4 min each ear then dry them out with kleenex & cotton swabs and finally after all this drains into your mouth I gargle for a minute with H202.

IF I do this on Day 1 I have never had to go to Day 2 of this routine - never in 10 years of use. This is why people go to Ear, Nose & Throat doctors - these are ALL inter-related. You need to fix them all. Hope this helps.

I discovered hydrogen peroxide inhalation last year when I was sick with a virus for 2 months and looking for a cure to my extreme fatigue. I was skeptical about the remedy but desperate for more energy. I inhaled up to 8 times a day for about a week and was cured.

Yesterday, I started to come down with a nasty virus that has been going around. After class I went back to my room and inhaled 3% hydrogen peroxide (not food grade, but a cheap drugstore brand): 10 sprays to the back of my throat. I did this every 3 to 4 hours until midnight. The virus symptoms dissipated within the first hour and had disappeared after 12 hours. I am continuing to inhale every 8 hours just to make sure it is gone. This remedy is an effective cure for viruses.

I'm starting the inhaling method of H202 and would like to know if I need to follow the same guidelines as if I was drinking it with distilled water. Do I need to inhale 1 hour before I eat and 3 hours after? Also, is it necessary to avoiding inhaling H202 too close to taking supplements and medication? Is 3% necessary for it to work? Can anyone answer these questions? Thanks.

Thanks for replying. It's good to know someone is listening. I've started out on 1% H202 and plan to slowly go up to 3%. Haven's had any reaction, good or bad since I started two days ago.

I use 'proxide in my humidifyer- about 50ml - in a gallon of water-- runs through this in about 12 hrs. Will this help with cold and flu bugs? We live in a 940 sq.ft/. condo, with hot water heat.

For the posts about colds/flu working, I have not experienced anything positive from this. I did the emptying out of the nasal spray inhalation method. As soon as I started to feel the throat itching and the nose getting stuffy, I started. First day I did it four times with around four to five sprays each time. All that happened with myself is that I got more sick as you would expect with a cold. The only difference was the my lungs are achy now and I had the nastiest taste in my mouth. Just to see if there has been any benefit, I continued in the morning (after having a fever all night). Still no change. The only thing that has help thus far has been the cold medicine I finally taken. Wish I could say different, but so far, the cold seems to be running a normal course with no benefit of peroxide inhalation.

i had the exact outcome as you. however, instead of giving up, i continued and am all the better for having done so. i went to urgent care twice and was diagnosed with acute bronchitis. i was given steroids, antibiotics, cough medicine and an inhaler both times and nothing worked. i decided to come here because i've had much success with turmeric on boils. i was, at that time, close to ruining my lungs completely as i coughed chronically with mucus filling my lungs but not coming out. i was also in extreme pain in my trunk area and lungs. the bottom line was when i researched my condition and found out that i actually have COPD because of the new symptoms of my feet and wrists swelling and massive water retention.

i saw this section and immediately sent for a dollar-store spray bottle, for we are currently vacationing and i needed something immediately. i had regular 3% peroxide from the dollar store and did not dilute it. i started inhaling as directed and immediately began to cough more and felt like i had the flu. i thought i was dying. the following morning, my coughs became productive and scary. i started with massive amounts of yellow phlem, then it changed to bloody, then yellow, green, yellow, cloudy, then clear, which is where i am today. i have spells of coughing when i feel the tickle at the back of my throat and it doesn't cease completely until i have coughed up the major portion of phlem. i am no longer panting from simply putting on my clothes and i can sleep. i am not in shape to go out in public just yet as i have no idea when i will start the coughing session. however, i am ten thousand percent better and i know this would not have been possible had i not come to this site.

i do have a question: WILL THE EXPELLING EVER CEASE COMPLETELY OR IS THERE ANYTHING I CAN DO TO DECREASE MY RECOVERY TIME? i have been inhaling cinnamon and clove oil with steam, but i can only do that while not out. i am missing being active...

Update: My coughing has been lessening but tends to bother me at the most inopportune time such as in the middle of the night. Two nights ago, I decided to use the steam/cinnamon oil/clove oil mixture to inhale given that I read it would kill any budding virus (I wanted to halt any virus just in case something was starting up again causing my coughing to not dissipate). Success! I was able to sleep hours and if there was any coughing, it was not as intense and very productive with no color or cloudiness in the phlegm. Mind you, my entire head has been swollen and my eyes had the appearance of protrusion because of the strain of coughing. Currently, my face has gone down and my coughing spells have been reduced about 50-75% with the time of the spells being reduced 90%. I went out for the very first time in weeks to a state fair. The first night I had to hide and cough about twice. The second night, my 2-3 coughing bouts did not alert anyone. I'm still a bit embarassed to go to a restaurant or movie theatre, but I am not as breathless as before from any activity. I definitely do not have to use my inhaler. THANKS EARTHCLINIC AND BILL MUNROE!!!

update:this morning - no coughing...yet!!!! Clearing throat to clear any phlegm coming up in small amounts and blowing nose periodically. Other than that, I am going to go to a restaurant for the first time in weeks to eat breakfast. I am breathing quietly - I don't hear congestion.

Hello. I'm writing because your symptoms are what I am experiencing now. Are you better now? I have copd and cannot walk 10 feet without feeling breathless and weak. I so want to try the HP but am afraid of what may happen, but I have no life. I haven't left my home in 8 months. Am so depressed. Sorry to bother you. Hope you are well.

Hello everyone! I am just 1 day old using the hydrogen peroxide inhalation for my allergic rhinitis that triggers an asthma attack, but mine is not I would say, pure hydrogen peroxide as it is already mixed with a sterile water for injection. I bought this mixture from a friend who said she and her mother who suffers asthma bought this from a nurse who does detox, etc. and prepares the mixture hersef and use it for better breathing and to cough up phlygm. it is not really that expensive, just 300 pesos/btl. And I put it in my nebulizer( the one I use for inhaling my ventolin 2.5 nebule) she said it is food grade 3%hydrogen peroxide mixed in sterile water used for injections. I could see frm label too.

I started using it yesterday when I started having very sore throat and became bad dry cough.put 5 ml of the mixture into the base connecting the mouthpiece and turned on the machine.At the first contact of my throat with the mixture I felt like suffocating but slowly it eased up. I have to stop once in a while as I felt like coughing and my throat became so dry that I felt it became more sore. After more or less 30 min. I felt mucus coming up and had to cough up very yellow phlygm. This lasted for almost an hour. I tried it again before I slept. I believe I was able to sleep but I felt weak and when I got up felt again the sore throat and dry cough so I nebulized again. Now, I am observing myself for any reaction as I know the method I used is different from most of you. Am I using the correct method for asthma/dry cough, allergic rhinitis? I am very skeptical at first but had to try to feel better and regain my life. Any comment, answer is truly appreciated.thank you,


p.s. I also have severe GERD( gastro esophageal reflux disease) which triggers an asthma attack and was diagnosed in 2015 for pulmonary fibrosis. I am 65 yrs old and still long to have a longer life to be able to enjoy my grandchildren...

I would try turmeric. It seems to help support many different organs in the body. I started using it and it seems to help my lungs and the memory. Get a good organic turmeric and use black pepper. Put it in some warm water drink down. They also say fat helps into the system. 1/2 t turmeric 1/4t pepper. Use it on your food also. Best to you God Bless

I have found that drinking a tea made of simmered ceylon cinnamon sticks will generally stop coughing and boost the immune system as to no herpes outbreak.

You have to use 35% hydrogen peroxide food grade not the Wimpy 3% stuff with all the additives in it use the food grade get it at a health food store and dilute it.

I got to work today and everyone is sick. Half way through the day I started feeling my throat get scratch and my nose starting to plug up. Just went and got some nasal spray and 3% peroxide. Dumped out the nasal spray, washed it, and filled with the peroxide. Just did five pumps in one big inhale. Will let you know if it works for me. Also, my father just got diagnosed with Pulmonary Fibrosis and is on 24 hour oxygen. Pretty much said he only has a few years with us. I see this has worked for many things. Anyone ever heard of someone trying a peroxide method for this??

I also have pulmonary fibrosis and have been looking into holistic methods of treatment. I just started the peroxide treatment yesterday so I can't give you any results yet but I am taking large doses of Serrapeptase that will breakdown the scar tissue in the lungs. I also nebulize a product called MMS that you can purchase on e-bay.

The serrapeptase info can be found at (http://www.biomediclabs.com/pulmonary_fibrosis) I have used both since I was diagnosed with Mantle Cell Lymphoma and pulmonary fibrosis 2 years ago. The cancer was in remission in 2 months and my lungs are getting better. I also had blood clots in my lungs as well as a Pseudomonas Aeruginosa infection. Both are under control now. There is hope for your father. I will let you know how the peroxide works.

I have gone through so much pain and suffering that no one should ever have to endure over the past year. I had a virus in me for over a year and they did not know what it was. They thought it was pure anxiety/depression/adhd, so I was constantly changed on medications. It finally got to the point where I could not live in this much physical pain on a daily basis. I'm only 22 and I felt like I was 90 with cancer. My hearing was decreasing, I was having trouble breathing, my face hurt all the time, coughing up mucus constantly, etc. I somehow saw hydrogen peroxide in my bathroom cabinet and remembered hearing it was used to treat viruses. I followed your steps and just figured what the hell. IT WORKED. I started coughing up all the horrible things inside my chest, my nose was running (in a good way), I could HEAR NORMALLY again, and all that pain that had been continuous in my body was GONE. I am not lying whatsoever. I will take this consistently for the rest of my life, the benefits in quality of life are undeniable.

EC: Thanks for the great feedback. We're guessing you are referring to the hydrogen peroxide inhalation method? If so, can you let us know more details (ie, how often)? Thanks.

Hydrogen peroxide inhalation

I tried Mr. Munro's technique after 6 days of chest and head congestion. I don't get sick very often, I do smoke regularly and when I do get sick it almost always goes to my chest because of the smoking I am sure. The H2O2 inhalation was a last ditch effort to clear up the longest flu-like sickness I have ever had! Fortunately, I do feel much better after only one day. I am not completely "healed", but my lungs can breath deeper, and I can cough up what was so thick in the lungs before. I am going to continue to use the technique for a few more days and see what happens. I must admit, I am not doing the same amount that Mr. Munro suggests, but I am inhaling the 3% stuff from the drugstore and about 4 inhales each time, about 4 times yesterday and twice already this morning (been up for about 4 hours). Still coughing, but doesn't hurt and stuff just comes right out! Thanks for the help and I am so greatful for old farmboys like Mr. Munro!

Wow, I can't believe how effective the hydrogen peroxide has been on killing whatever virus I had. I have had a really, really bad cold which went into my lungs and caused breathing problems (I have a little asthma) for almost two weeks. I also had the sore throat and cough - used the cayenne last week and within a day or two that was totally gone. But I was still miserable with the congestion and labored breathing. Read about the hydrogen peroxide inhalation therapy. So this morning I went out and bought the nasal sprayer, and 3% HP, and gave it a go. I did a few squirts as I breathed in once. Couldn't tell much at first, but slowly I noticed the congestion leaving and feeling more and more energetic. I did another round a few hours ago, and tonight I am breathing normal, very very little congestion, and I feel full of energy and life! I am having trouble falling asleep, too much energy, but I'm sure not complaining about that. Oh, I forgot to mention, I took a HP bath too, just poured one of those small 15 oz. bottles into the bath water and stayed in there for 45 minutes. All the warnings on other sites did scare me I have to admit, so I'm still not sure if I am brave enough to make this a regular practice, but to oust a bad cold or flu I will do it in a heartbeat again!!! Thank you Earth Clinic.

My husband started feeling symptoms of the flu on Friday, but I didn't feel them until Monday. I started inhaling 3% peroxide to the back of my throat and into my lungs following Bill Munro's instructions right away. I felt immediately better (literally, 5 minutes later) but 20 minutes later I felt the virus returning to my head. Instead of waiting the 2-3 hours for the inhalation like the instructions state, I decided to inhale again. Again my symptoms disappeared almost immediately. I kept inhaling every time I felt the symptoms returning and by midnight, I didn't have any more symptoms. I went to sleep, symptom free and did the peroxide again this morning, after an 8 hour break and will continue to inhale every 2-3 hours now. I am not 100% (mild congestion) but am doing sooo much better than my husband who is still miserable with congestion.

I am coming to the conclusion that the key to this inhalation method is starting it as soon as you feel the symptoms and then continuing it for a day or two. Don't stop doing it even if you feel better! I also think that inhaling every few hours is not enough if you have a bad strain of the virus. Inhaling every time I feel symptoms returning has been the key to kicking this virus. No doubt I will be able to test my findings again this winter, but hopefully not with the swine flu.

Good luck everyone. We need to be prepared for a bad swine flu season!

I did some experimenting on my own after reading numerous articles on H2O2 inhalation methods. I contracted some kind of virus that affected my lungs..with coughing spasms. I filled my cool mist humidifier with 1 gallon of reverse osmosis water and 2 ozs 35% food grade H2O2 and slept with this on thru the night for several nights. First thing I noticed, was that I was able to breathe considerably better with less coughing. This is strictly my own concoction..I was desparate, as conventional medicine was not doing anything for me. Thought I would pass this remedy on......

ive had 3 lots of antibiotics, steriods for a bronchial virus which has me coughin all day and night for over 2 months so my ribs feel like ive been run over by a steam roller, 2 days ago i began inhaling h202 3% every 2 hrs day and night and havent seen any results so far but i notice bill says it could take a couple of weeks so im hopeful. Ive never smoked nor had any bronchial problems, only once before in l982 a mild bronchitis, so im not prone to these things - there seems to be many viruses going around england at present. Heres hoping this hydrogen peroxide works cos the drs sure arent helping! has anyone else had a virus so long and has h202 cured it> be interested to hear please?

Well after my last post, the virus i had for over 2 months went in a week, i inhaled every two hours when awake, though couldnt sleep much and got worse after a couple of days, then gradually the symptoms went, i still have a slight soreness in the top of my chest but thats all, im so grateful to thie h202 and the info on this site - the acv has brought down my bp and cured my gerd and oil pulling has massively improved my stiff joints

Im very happy and impressed with these more natural ways of treatment - still a little concerned about taking bicarb with the acv because of the possibility of it increasing bp..........has anyone answered that question yet? I noticed someone else asked about it.......J

The minute I feel a cold coming on or any kind of sinus problem I lay on one side, put a drop (little bit) in my ear and lay there for a few minutes, longer if lots of crackling. I do the other ear same way and I swear I have not had any head cold or sinus infection in 5 years. I also started using saline nose spray at the end of the night if I have gone out of the house ( grocery store, bingo, senior center, people places). I use it like a stream to cleanse, not just spray and I also gargle with warm salt water same thing at end of night before bed. I read somewhere or heard it that it takes germs 3 days to propagate in your nose or throat so if ya keep them washed away, well so far so good. They also say do not put peroxide in yur ear if you have ever had a ruptured eardrum and also don't irrigate your nose if you already are plugged up.

I have COPD and my breathing is not the best as of late, but not on oxygen yet. Chest seems tighter than usual. Would like to try the peroxide but am a little apprehensive about it because I use Spiriva, Albuterol and sometimes Flovent. Not sure if I should stop the inhalers first or for how long before trying. Also heard when you use vinegar ya want to rinse your mouth well because it eats away at teeth enamel. I also have osteoarthritis and osteoporosis so not sure how any of those things effect bones.

Hello: I was waiting to answer on this subject because I wanted to try Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) on myself. Here is how it went: Last week Ginette got a terrible flu. She came back from work on Friday, 18th of april 2008, complaining about sore throat, general weakness, slightly blurred vision and all the other symptoms that go with it. She sprayed into her mouth H2O2 and took mega doses of vitamin C, but I think it was already too late. One week later she is almost OK except for some rather deep coughing.

When I saw her last Friday I immediately sprayed H2O2 several times in my throat and I continued for the following 2-3 days... I also took mega doses of vitamin C. Guess what ? No flu for me...

In the past, each time she had a flu like that, I would get it as well right after her (the mega dose of vitamine C couldn't prevent it), but not this time. I believe it was because I killed the virus with H2O2 by spraying it strait inside of my throat and lungs RIGHT ON TIME before it had time to spread into my lungs.

Despite of what some people may think, using H2O2 occasionally is not at all harmfull. The only thing that I felt is bacteria being fried right inside of my throat. No pain at all for me.

We brought a small spraying bottle with us to Cuba and used it by spraying it to kill bacteria in bathrooms, door knobs, ustencils in restaurants, remote control, drinking glasses, coffe cups, etc... I even sprayed a roaming cat that was coming to visit us. A few bugs fell down on floor immediately !!!

Have a nice day... with H2O2 ...

P.S. Here in Canada we can buy H2O2 at Dollarama... The price : A bottle of 450ml, containing 3% H2O2, for $0.99 cents, of course ! The big bottle as well as the spraying bottle must be kept away from exposure to light.

I'm having the best respite from a lifetime of asthma, allergies and chronic bronchitis since beginning three natural therapies. A) I take Vit D3 drops (Bioceuticals brand from health food shop) daily. B) I paint Lugol's iodine solution on my skin several times a week (just half a dropper full). C) I inhale 3% H Peroxide via the mouth about 6 times a day. The latter also lessened the pain from my Dercum's Disease (painful lipomatosis) by about 80% and cleared my thinking. I also sleep well now, and not too long and breathe and move better/more easily.
