Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation Method by Bill Munro

Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation: While in Tucson, Arizona for an extended stay I caught a respiratory virus that nearly stopped my clock. The coughing was so severe and so frequent that I feared I would have a stroke. It was so bad that I literally could not sleep and was declining in health rapidly. I tried every over the counter cold medication I could buy with no improvement. Finally in desperation I bought a "Ocean Saline Nasal Sprayer Inhaler" --emptied out the contents --and replaced the saline with Hydrogen Peroxide 3% straight from the drug store shelf.I sprayed the H202 both in my throat and nose and relief was immediate. Within 3 hours the cough was under control. I continued using the spray for a week until the virus was killed. The only negative part of the cure was I lost my sense of smell and taste for several months. My taste and smell slowly returned to normal over a 6 month period. To say that I was scared by this virus, would be a gross understatement. To say that I am THANKFUL for H202, would also be an understatement. I am convinced it truly saved my life. 55 year old male.

As I have not tried this treatment, I have been reviewing all the comments. When I read Jay's comment about the only negative outcome was a loss of smell and taste for several months, I felt compelled to respond. Years ago my grandfather got one of those horrible viruses and lost all sense of taste and smell for life-my mother for years! So, I would venture to say that the treatment just might have restored (rather than caused) your senses in a short period of time.

Next time do half saline and half peroxide or 2/3 saline and 1/3 peroxide 3%.

Yesterday morning I awoke with the beginnings of the flu. My tell tale sign was that my neck ached like crazy right at the base of the skull and I was severely fatigued. My husband had been sick with the flu last week so I figured my turn had come. Well, I started inhaling my 3% peroxide h202 at 10:00am every 2 to 3 hours and by 5:00pm I was back to normal... no neck ache, no exhaustion, nothing. I am going to keep it up for a total of 3 days I think to make sure the virus has been eliminated, but this is the 5th time I have done this remedy for a virus bug and it has worked every time. It is a gem of a remedy. Thanks, Bill!

Had a sore throat and severe flu fatigue for several days. Tried the inhaler H202 method from your web site. 10 minutes after my first inhalation my energy came back. I did it once more and then went to bed. My sore throat disappeared over night and when I woke up the next morning, I was back to normal.

Since I heard about the h202 inhalation method on your site last winter, I have used it to treat viruses about 8 times. It is really the #1 remedy of all time in my opinion. Funnily enough, all my friends are scared to try it even though I tell them to just try it! But I did get my mother to use it (73 years old and going strong). She LOVES it now! At any rate, last night I started to get a sore throat and felt terrible and weak. I inhaled 2 hours apart and woke up feeling 100%.

It is great that this worked for you. One word of caution though is that you should not drink the 3% stabilized H2O2 that you get at the drugstore. If you are going to drink it, you should get some food grade H202 (35%) and dilute it.

On January 5, '07 I came down with the flu---VERY high fever, body aches and pains and nasty cough. I have not been this sick for about 7 years. After day 5 of high fevers with no relief, I went to the doc and got some antibiotics---which did work and by the 3rd day I was feeling dramatically better. But the COUGH---it just would not quit and was dragging me down making me feel like I was getting sick all over again and I felt like I had been hit by a Mack truck--no energy and just not feeling like I was quite well yet. So on day 16 of this illness, I came across this website for h2o2 inhalation. I just happened to have a spray bottle and some h2o2, and desperate for anything to start me healing, I tried it. The cough had been SO bad, every breath was a cough and it was keeping me up all night and I would have cough attacks that left me gagging. I was sore and exhausted. For 2 days, I have been taking a homeopathic cough remedy every 2 hours---but the sugar content was making me nauseated. SO---I went whole hog into this hydrogen peroxide bit---I drank a capful of 3% in a large glass of water, and then spray inhaled it about every hour. I noticed right away that when I did cough, it was productive rather than a dry, hacking cough. I drank the peroxide about every 2 hours and was inhaling about 6-8 sprays every hour or so. WOW---I have not had a dose of cough medicine for over 12 hours only using the h2o2 spray and I am truly impressed. In fact, I woke up around 2 a.m. needing to cough, did the spray-inhalation, and I did cough, but it was all productive and I went back to sleep and actually SLEPT!

When my husband got up this morning, as he has been fighting this lung germ also and has a nasty cough, I had him do the spray and drink the peroxide. Within an hour, he had a VERY productive cough attack and was impressed with how good he felt after that junk came out. Already seeing relief, I am sold on h2o2 therapy, and am telling everyone I know about it. I got an extremely strong virus with an obvious bacterial component, so I expect to do a round the clock therapy for at least a couple more days to get all the bacteria and virus out of my system. This is definitely the cheapest remedy that actually works that I have EVER tried. THANKS so much for this website and all the info!!!

I used the 3% h202 inhaling method recently to get rid of a virus that I couldn't kick. I have to say that the first time I tried it I felt a little light headed because my lungs (I'm guessing) were not used to this level of oxygenation. By the second day it was fine. I suggest people start with only 1 or 2 pumps of 3% and see how they feel. If okay, try a few more an hour or two later. Work your way up to 6 pumps at a time slowly. Oh, and yes it was successful in getting rid of my virus. Took 3 days to feel better.

Thanks so much for providing all of this invaluable info! I just started using the inhalation method of H202 (I put it in a pump atomizer instead of the nose spray container), as well as the cayenne pepper gargle for a sore throat. Both seem to be working well but I was wondering about adding some hydrogen peroxide to my neti-pot/ sinus-cleanse. Any thoughts on that and if so, what ratio of 3% H202 to water. Also, should the salt be omitted when using the H202? Thanks in advance for any info. Keep up the great remedies and healing work!

EC: See what others have written about H202 sinus infection cures here. A few people have written in about this combination for sinus infections.

After having great luck with inhaling drugstore h202 for viruses and flu in January and February, I switched from 3% to a dilution of food grade. I wasn't sure about how many drops to add to the inhaler, so I only added 2 drops to filtered water. This wasn't enough! After a couple of days, I felt the beginnings of a virus, which wouldn't have been the case if I had enough oxygen (ie., h202) in my blood. I quickly dumped out the food grade and added back the 3% and pumped 6 times. The viral symptoms disappeared within about 3 hours. It happened fast because I don't think the virus had been in my system very long. I am going to stick to the 3% for viruses and occasionally use the food grade to drink. Since Bill Munro has used the 3% for 12 years, I am not so worried about the additives!

If anyone is concerned about about additives and stabilizers in the 3% H2O2 here's a tip to maybe try: drink Aloe Vera juice which is known to chelate heavy metals and toxins which might be present as stabilizers in the H2O2 and has other tremendous health benefits too!

As far as getting dilutions right, 35% is 10 and a half times stronger than 3%, so you can add 10 and a half times more water to it and it will be now a 3% solution. So 10 and a half teaspoons of water mixed with one teaspoon of 35% HP makes it into 3% HP. If you want larger quantities, use cups instead, just stick to the 10 and a half parts, whatever the size, of water to 1 part of 35% HP. I think the maths is right..... Anyone ?

I read somewhere exactly what you are saying. One drop of 35% food grade peroxide is equal to 10 and 1/2 drops 3%Hydrogen Peroxide form the pharmacy. So if you want to dilute the 35% to 3% you add 10 and 1/2 of water. One tsp of 35% food grade 10 and 1/2 tsp of distilled water makes a 3% food grade peroxide. For one cup of 35% food grade you will need 10 and 1/2 cups of distilled water... And so on.. I think you are right.

The simplest way to make a 3% is use, 1 cup 35% to 11 cups of distilled water. That is 1 part 35 percent to ll parts water in any measurement will make 3 percent it is a ratio. Just make sure the water and peroxide are measured in same size container.

Replied by Ana

One part 35% food grade H2o2 and 11 parts of distiled water will give you the 3% H2o2. I've been using it for months orally, inhaled in the ears, etc. I love it have not gotten the flu in months and am feeling more and more energetic, though energy levels have come back gradually.

I also got the sore throat and extreme fatigue the past 2 weeks. Last Friday I started to inhale the peroxide -- 6 pumps every 2 hours. Within 36 hours I was all better.

I have been struggling to get over the flu for the past 6 weeks. I have had a recurring sore throat, but mainly I have been unusually exhausted! I tried everything on your flu page! Nothing helped: vitamin C, zinc, apple cider vinegar, garlic, oregano oil. Finally went to the doc and he prescribed antibiotics (sometimes helps with a virus). Did not do a thing! Anyway, came across Bill's recommendation to inhale peroxide. I have put peroxide in my ear for years (didn't help this time), but never inhaled it. Figured it couldn't hurt! Started to inhale the peroxide, per Bill's instructions and it's now been 36 hours. I am not yet back to 100% but feel so much better! I have tons of energy. When I feel a wave of fatigue hit (the virus trying to come back?), I take more peroxide and the tiredness goes away immediately. Interesting stuff!

Hi there, Does anyone know if you can use the inhalation method with mercury amalgam fillings? I found out the hard way that you really cannot drink it unfortunately, and I haven't had them removed yet. I got so many benefits from H2O2 (before I got sick due to teh mercury released) that I would like to be able to use it. Alternatively can I drink it using a straw as one person suggested? Sorry if this has been covered, I haven't been able to find the answer.

Inhalation, if done correctly, should bypass your fillings. I would not recommend using the H2O2 mouth rinse though. I suspect, that a good deal of rinsing with water and spitting would minimize any amalgam/H2O2 reactions.

Does anyone know where I can get a protocol for H2O2 for COPD?

Replied by Bill

Hi Bob...The best and cheapest effective protocol against COPD and emphysema is Bill Munroe's Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation Method which is full described at the top of this page on EC.

Ted from Bangkok also advises taking 1000 mgs each of N Acetyl-Cysteine and Taurine to help aid breathing. MSM(Methylsulfonylmethane) -- 1/2 to one full teaspoon once a day in water will also help. All these compounds contain essential sulfur in the right form form the body. These sulfur nutrients will therefore help in the production of glutathione for detox, will reduce inflammation and will help reduce excess histamines in the body which also aids normal breathing.

Can anyone verify that this method has cured anyone with COPD or exactly how has it helped them?

I did read that taking Ginger Tea, Vit A, Omega 3, Vit D3, Ginsing and red sage were very beneficial as well, can anyone verify these steps to improving COPD or making it easier to live with it.....Thank You....Ed

I was having my nails done, the person that does them I know her well. She has had a cough for some time, I told her about me doing Bill's hydrogen peroxide inhalation treatment, well she did it for a few days, she said cough all gone. She could not believe that the peroxide worked. Great stuff!

The past two winters I suffered from a cold that then turned into months and months of persistent coughing and more coughing. I started another cold three weeks ago and have been coughing just as I have in the past. Today I read about Bill Munro and using a nasal spray bottle to inhale hydrogen peroxide I have to say Thank You Thank You. So at lunch I went and bought both, wash the bottle out and started inhaling the hydrogen peroxide... the tickle immediately disappeared, and the cough has subsided greatly and has seemed to almost disappear in some instances as I have had stopped talking when I didn't have to as it produced more coughing. So again Thank You Earth Clinic and Thank You Bill Munro.

HI U JENNIFER, , , , , , , , , , , , , , yeah , I just a monkey see, monkey do and had recommended this to our preacher's wife for her father. He smoked and now has COPD. After he started the H2O2 inhalation he began to cough up black stuff. Scared his mule and his doctor told him to stop.

Been down this trail with other friends so when they get spooked, I back out and soon they die. I just pass on what I read. I don't do experimentation nor know squat. I just read a lot.

This stuff is amazing. Have the flu and a severe cough, coughing up mucus. I can even hear the sound of my breathing of the rubbish on my lungs. I remembered the inhalation h2o2. Seriously I tried it late afternoon and before going to bed. Woke up... No cough. I did an intensional cough and it brought No phlegm up. It is amazing.

Inhaling H202 cured my kids coughs.

My family got the swine flu at the end of August. For 6 weeks we passed that thing around each of us getting it more than once. One son had it for 3 days each week for 4 weeks and one ended up in the hospital with pneumonia. We all got over the fever fine, but 4 were left with nasty coughs that just wouldn't quit. I tried AVC, but my kids hated it so much that they wouldn't drink it consistently, so I bought a nebulizer online and used half drugstore H202 (1-2 ml) and half water (1-2 ml) in the medicine cup. I had them each inhale for about 10 minutes 2 times per day.

Within 2 days they were 90% better, and the ones who still had a little cough were better in 3. And that was after coughing for 4-5 weeks. I think the little viruses were hiding in the lungs and then reappearing when they got their numbers back up. After I started the H202, no one had a reoccurence of the flu.
