Having done the whole H2O2 inhalation method diligently for about 18 months now (thanks Bill Munro and earth clinic), I feel it's time to report on the undoubted improvement in my health.

In October 2010, I came down with a rapid onset of what turned out to be the supposedly rare "Dercum's Disease", also known as "Adiposis Dolorosa". It is a fat disorder, whereby lipomas or fatty lesions form in any part of the body, but most often subcutaneously. 1% of any population will have these fatty lumps and they are usually benign and entirely painless, but in Dercum's sufferers (and I use that term advisedly), a whole syndrome comes into effect -short term memory dysfunction, severe pain, mobility problems, cognitive dysfunction, fogginess in thinking and great fatigue. Lumps can appear overnight, which is frightening. We need to be hugged very gently and repetitive movements aggravate lumps in or on our muscles and nerves. Carrying shopping bags on our upper forearms is a no no. Very, very few doctors know or care to acknowledge the existence of this scary disease. We are left to google, network with fellow sufferers and disseminate both natural (H202 inhalation) and allopathic treatments that work for us individually. And we are all individuals in our we experience any condition and cure/treatment. For me, stumbling across Bill Munro's video on this site was a Godsend, literally. I felt, having read Bill's account of his self treatment that it just might have relevance to my Dercum's Disease. I also have lifelong asthma and an auto-immune form of low thyroid, called Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. I know I move too little and hence my lymph drainage is less than ideal. The fatigue and pain was absolutely overwhelming.

I decided H202 was affordable, available and extremely easy to inhale, in my case, at regular 1.5 hour intervals during the day and about 5 pumps of the nasal spray bottle on each long inhalation into the back of the mouth. I have no side effects other than a lot of belching if I've overused. I have a much improved quality of life, much, much less pain (I'd been struggling on paracetamol with codeine tablets) and much better mobility. I can walk mostly without pain again, am fitter and can do my own housework and shopping once again. I even applied for a job yesterday :). Not sure yet if I will be able to manage it, but - 'nothing ventured, nothing gained'. Certainly I don't feel up to a full-time job as the fatigue and memory issues continue, but I am experiencing continued improvement, month by month, so who knows how well I may become? I do continue to take my asthma and thyroid medications and am still a 56 year old post menopausal woman, so jumping over puddles will probably not be happening any time soon, but I am once again happy to be here.

One thing to remember is that it took us a long time to get to where we are in our ill health and it will take awhile to get back to feeling better again. When you experience detox, that means that the therapy is working. You may have to scale back a little on your therapy for a time in order to tolerate the detox symtoms. Persistence is the key. Stick with it and you will feel better.

Better But With Side Effects

Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation Method
Yea and Nea

A couple hours after trying the inhalation method I began to have severe abdominal pains headaches, chills, and a fever that lasted for a few days. I give it both a Yeah and a Nea becouse I am still optimistic that this method might work becouse it could of just been the toxins being cleaned out of my body.

Yes, could be toxins moving out and could be you got a bug/cold/flu same time and thought was side effect of H202 inhalation. Did you try again and get same side effects?

I only write this because similar has happened to me. When I found b/f got same symptoms, I realized it couldn't have come from current home remedy I was testing, since he didn't take it too.

But could also be temporary healing crisis. Try drinking more water. I sometimes take this Echinacea-Goldenseal tincture and some vitamin C in water a few times a day for a few days (as bottle says) to deal with healing crisis and its helped very much.

I'm already familiar with using H202 but after reading about Bill's inhalation method, I became intrigued. I used food grade 35% h202. I have used it for many years and yes, if you do not know what you are doing, are not good at mixing things, or have never used it before, please find someone who has and have them prepare it for you. Or you will most likely injure yourself. I used a 1 ounce nasal spray bottle with 4 drops of 3% H202 35% solution. I firmly believe in starting with minute dosages and working up. Better safe than sorry. After the first application of 2 pumps, my sinuses stared to open up more than they have been and there was a deepening of my breathing. I waited for 30 minutes and did 2 more pumps and noticed my head begin to clear. I have been noticing more improvements along with minor die-off effects. That is why I started with a low potency of 4 drops. Too much die-off could be potentially deadly for some people with a weak immune and especially eliminative system. So far, it is working extremely well for me and I will keep increasing the number of H202 drops in the spray bottle as time goes on. Remember that as effective as something as this is, you need to be educated on how toxicity is accumulated in your body and why your organs of elimination need to be working properly. Otherwise the die-off from killing the negative condition may be more uncomfortable than what you were suffering from.

l am 70 yrs old and fairly healthy, but l have diabetes and high blood pressure. l just started taking h202 today. Using a sprayer to inhale, 35% food grade diluted to 3% and doing 4 sprays 3 times a day. l have never read any comments yet about diabetes. Does anyone know of any results if this will help diabetics?

I would be really cautious about using peroxide internally since your body continually uses anti-oxidants to quench the peroxides it makes to kill bacteria. If you are on medication inform your doctor of what you are using so he can adjust your medication. Fig leaf, bay leaf, geranium leaf, pelargoneum leaf and cinnamon all inhibit the absorbtion of sugar. Gymnema sylvestre is an indian herb that also does the same. I have reactive hypoglycemia, so that I get too high then too low blood sugar when I eat high carb foods. I find 1-2 tsp of crumbled dry fig leaves in a tea, and using cinnamon or garam masala on my cereal keeps me from reacting to the carbs in the cereal. I have lots of fig trees so that's cheapest for me. Also get a glycemic index to mostly avoid high glycemic foods like potatoes unless mixed with high fiber or high protein in the meal.

SECOND MONTH INTO hp DROPS PROTOCOL and holding on maintenance level (I've chosen 3x5 drops of 35% in glass of chlorine-free water, my blood glucose is slashed 50% and insulin use slashed 40%, no side effects, lost 25 lbs in 6 weeks with normal-diabetic diet,energized, and working on completely dropping insulin

Did you keep taking your medication/insulin the whole time whilst taking the drops? I am a insulin dependant diabetic.

Replied by Peter

Hi Loloma,

Yes, I am still taking insulin regularly, but the units are slashed by 50% in every shot. I just dont need that much insulin anymore.My weight now dropping very slowly but diet is unchanged all the time, I only replaced breakfast with the Budwig (flax seed oil fresh cottage cheese) dish. So I figure the complete elimination of insulin would call for additional exercise. Exercise must be at calorie burning rate (consult professional), exaggeration will only RAISE glucose level-sort of paradox situation.

I'm a diabetic on oral medications including high blood pressure. My glucose levels would not drop below 300 a year ago despite fasting. I started with a maintanance dose of 3 drops/8 oz distilled water x3 a day. 2 hours after my third dose, AND after eating a high glucose meal, my glucose level was at 90 exact.

I repeated everything exactly on day two in order to see if this was an anomoly... my glucose level dropped to 84.

And on the third day yet again, down to 76... I had to increase my carb intake between the major meals. This brought up my glucose level to around 90. Add exercise and my A1c was 6.8, my energy level is great, my glucose remains under control. I do not see an end to the diabetes though, short of exercise and continued weight drop.

Hydrogen Peroxide for type 1 diabetes???

I would like to know if any of the people posting about their experiences using HP with their diabetes were type 1 diabetes. I would like to know if it would work same way at lowering insulin needs with juvenile onset diabetes. That doesn't mean the person is a child but that they developed it as a child or teen.

Does anyone know why the HP works??? What's going on inside that is causing the blood sugar lowering effect?

I would really like to try this but am a Type 1 diabetic. If anyone knows will you please post your knowledge about this.

Thank you so much,

Lately I have been having a hell of a time with digestive issues. Not sure what is going on -- it may be that I am eating way too much hormone injected chicken and turkey now that I moved in with my partner, who has to eat meat at least once a day or he gets sick. On the other hand, I ate a Trader Joe's garlic naan last week at home with a homemade curry and woke up to extreme abdominal pain and brain fog. Second time that happened with the naan, will have to check the ingredients next time I go. So perhaps I am allergic to wheat now. I don't know. At any rate, after a week of snail's pace recovery with Apple Cider Vinegar and Baking Soda, molasses, etc., I decided to a) eat vegetarian and b) do Bill Munro's h202 inhalation therapy. I started the peroxide therapy yesterday at about noon. By 8pm the brain fog that I have had for a week disappeared. This morning, exactly 24 hours later, my digestive tract finally feels back to normal. No more abdominal pain. I did 6 pumps of 3% h202 (drugstore brand) every 2- 3 hours. I think eating only rice and vegetables the last few days was helpful too. Yahoo!

Hi Jonna, don't give up on the wheat yet! If you are eating bleached flour bread, try going to l00% whole wheat bread. If the problem decreases, then work on eliminating all bleached flour products, and this takes some thought because a lot of noodles, pastas, thickening in soups, dressings, sauces, saltine crackers contain bleached flour. Also, before you give up on eating chicken and turkey, read the ingredients on the package (even on the raw chicken that you have to take home and cook). If it lists chicken broth, natural flavors or natural flavoring package contains monosodiumglutamate.

Diluting Food Grade  

Posted by Sunny (Ca) on 11/16/2013

I want to know how to dilute 35% food grade Hydrogen Peroxide to 3% for the inhalation method. Also I heard that you need to use distilled water? Can I use reverse osmosis filtered water instead?? Also does the H2o2 weaken if stored diluted in water? Like if I dilute a large amount and then store it. Thanks!

I have started using Bill Munro's method but find that the doses I inhale are too small to kill off the bacteria and I still produce a lot of phlegm and/or mucus that is (most of the time) difficult to get rid if. Bill states that one must inhale a level of oxygen that kills the bacteria only then will there be relief. The question is to what levels? Has anyone experience with this? How many pumps does one apply each time or does one keep going till the right dose is found? Your comments will be much appreciated.

I think you should follow Bill Munro's dosage suggestions or at least work your way up to them & have patience. Everyone's body is different. Disease & other health problems can affect people differently. Look for other ways to improve your health as an adjunct to the HP therapy. By reinforcing your immune system in other ways, you may help to boost the efficacy of the HP therapy. Eat healthier & more simply. If your body is spending too much time digesting processed food & trying to remove dietary & enviromental toxins from the body, it cannot devote the needed time to heal itself. That is why many people don't get the same results as others. Excess phlegm and/or mucus may just be part of the body's way of cleansing itself. You can reduce your HP dosage until the mucous level drops or you can take other natural aids to further cut the levels of excess mucus that is being produced. Things like lemon juice in a glass of water can often help, as well as other natural remedies. The key point is to continue your HP therapy so that you can continue to improve.

Herman, I have asthma and was about to go on oxygen when I found this site. After 5 days of using Bill Monroe hp inhalation thearpy I'm much better. However I've kept a crock pot full of distilled water and 1 oz 35% hydrogen peroxide heating on high by my chair I believe that has helped too. Tomorrow I'm getting a cool air humidifier to add the hp as a nightime aid. I'm coughing and wheezing much less. This site has been of a real value to me. If I can't find 35% hp around here, I will order online. Good Luck

I've used Bill Munroe's method for over a year - yes, I was a long time smoker and had emphysema - and it is the simplest and most effective thing I ever did. Plain old $l.00 a bottle - right - and I spray while inhaling approximately 6 times a day. I stopped taking my Albuterol many months ago. That bottle of 3% is the answer. No messing with measuring anything! Please! Everyone who has breathing problems for any reason at all - give this a try!! As far as I'm concerned, Bill Munro saved my life.

Erin, I am going to try the Bill Munro method for my breathing, how long did it take before you noticed a difference in your breathing? Thank you so much, I finally have some hope, so tired of getting out of breath just walking across the house.

I have been inhaling peroxide for about a month now-the first couple of weeks I was sick with laryngitis (I believe that was my body's way of getting rid of bacteria). Now when I inhale it, I only experience the positive effects of it once in awhile. The very first day I did it, I felt more alert, then I was sick with laryngitis, now I only feel alert and more energy once or twice a week (I am inhaling it every 4 hours or so and 5-7 sprays). Am I doing it wrong? Any feedback would be appreciated!

To Pam: I have been doing the peroxide inhalation on and off for the last 2 years and can tell you it doesn't necessarily give you more energy if you have candida and fungus issues. The peroxide is superb for viruses though. Try an anti-yeast diet and you should feel more energy within a few days!

I've used Bill Munro's inhalation method using food grade hydrogen peroxide diluted down to 3 percent in purified water for a short time now. It seems to pick up my energy quite well.

Now I read Ted from Bangkok who states that the right mix is .5 per cent. And that 3 per cent is too much.

So who is right? Thanks, Art

I read about this on the internet, inhaling hydro. perx. and I tried it. I did not use the full strength, I was too afraid. Anyway, I am seventy years old and I only had one hour of sleep that night, and I had to watch my two year old granddaughter and to my amazement, I was not sleepy and did not one time get tired,,,,,, and I would have been sooooo tired, running after her. I am so amazed with the results and I will tell everyone,,, its a miracle..... is there anymore that I can research about hydro? i will continue to use it every day, and now my husband is going to try it....... if only people knew about this, wow...... thanks, marlene

I have been experimenting with several remedies. I have been doing the HP inhalation for a few weeks now but only when fatigued. I use a throat spray bottle and spray a few times until I cough while inhaling, that seems to be the only way that I can determine that it's not just coating the back of my throat. I notice that it works almost immediately to get me out of that "desperately need more sleep" haze. It lifts that "heavy" feeling. I tried it again 2 days ago when I only got 4 hours of sleep with the intent that if I did the HP inhalation and it worked AGAIN then I would be convinced. I'm completely convinced for fatigue purposes at this time. I intend to increase my usage soon.

Also, I read where someone mentioned using iodine on cysts. I am using it on a cyst (may be caused by an ingrown hair or not!)on my shin, about the size of the circumferance of a sharpie marker. I started this a few weeks ago and was applying the iodine once a day for about 3 days straight. Then I forgot about it. I just happened to look this morning and it has shrunk by about half and the skin on top just peeled off. I will be starting up again today to see if I can get rid of it completely over the next week or so.

I have Candida but no insurance and I was trying a product that has been rated as the number 1 recommended product. Unfortunately, it felt like my kidneys were not happy about it so I had to get off of it. I am going to try some other methods to see if it helps. I'll post when I know more.

I've been doing Vinegar/soda and inhaling peroxide. Inhaling hydrogen peroxide is helping the problem I've had with fatigue for a long time. I'm not sure if it's actually helping the cold I've had for almost three weeks or not (some of it could be from detoxifying?). I did double the amount I've been giving my husband last night and it's the first night in years that I haven't been disturbed from his restless leg syndrome.

Taking a little magnesium (or 1/4 teaspoon of Epsom Salts in water) will stop most restless leg syndrome within a few minutes. If not, take another dose.

For Restless Leg Syndrome many people swear putting soap under the sheet will help. I don't know if it's a bar or what. Got the info from People's Pharmacy. You can Google it.

I've been doing some research on Bill Munro's hydrogen peroxide inhaling treatment and so far all I've found indicates that it is extremely toxic. Of course, prior to finding as much information, I decided to give it a try by adding 1 tiny drop of h2o2 to my albuterol solution and the first time, worried about the consequences I found it felt as if it might work. My breathing immediately improved and felt different than just taking the albuterol. Unfortunately, after having read more, I must say I am now more worried of continuing. I'd appreciate any information amy one can provide on the subject.

Gus, the internet has every idea and it's exact opposite all over the web. So if you experienced help from it, go for it BUT SLOWLY. For example, I alway water down even the plain 3% HP from the drugstore even just for rinsing the mouth.

Replied by Mama to Many

Dear Gus,

I agree with Mmsg.

We have found H2O2 inhalation (via inhalation or nebulizer) to work very well and we have not had any side effects in our family.

I do not think I would mix albuterol with Hydrogen Peroxide. I am not a chemist; perhaps it is okay. But unless I was sure there would be no reaction to use both together, I would use them apart. Maybe even 4 hours apart from each other. We have used albuterol and hydrogen peroxide in the nubulizer, but never at the same time. When I use peroxide in the nebulizer, I dilute it with distilled water. 5 drops hydrogen peroxide to 35 drops of water.
