I was searching for some ideas regarding natural therapies to supplement allopathic treatment for pneumonia and came across your site. I was very surprised to see a recommendation for peroxide inhalation to treat pneumonia. Yikes! While I can appreciate an exchange of ideas and see your site has a disclaimer regarding medical advice, I'd just like to make a comment to site participants that I would strongly discourage inhaling peroxide. Just as it creates a "bubbling" effect on a wound, the same would most likely happen in an infected lung creating a dangerous compromise in lung function and make things worse. I am not a physician, but an RN with 28yrs experience and I hope no one does that without talking to their doctor.

You all are fantastic. The stuff I have been reading is just overwhelming!! I would like to know instead of ussing the nasal spray I would like to use the nebulizer. How much h202 can I put in it? I have 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide. if I wanted to add DMSO and CS to it how much and how often for all? thanks so much for all your help:) mrichards03(at)cinergymetro.net
I had posted a write up on this subject several months back. The improvement I got from the treatment has stabilized and leveled out at a defiantly improved condition. I now do the treatments on an occasional basis but have gone for weeks at a time without it and the benefit seems to be long lasting. As an experiment, I have been using a vitamin and mineral supplement which has added a new level of improvement! This combination has really helped me out. I did a cut and paste on mixing this solution after reading it somewhere on this site but can't recall in order to give credit. I put into "word" and will be happy to share it with anyone who requests it.

I have been inhaling food grade 3% h202 for copd. I have been on it about 2 months inhaling two times in the morning and two times in the evening. It seem to make my breathing worse. has anyone else had this happen? any advice? or should I stop taking it.
I have tried this but is it supposed to sting the throat as it goes down? Almost instantly my throat begins to sting when spraying the undiluted 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide down my throat. Is it safe to continue?
Hi, Last night I tried the hydrogen peroxide inhalation method using 3% diluted food grade hydrogen peroxide. I immediately felt pressure in my chest that has not gone away. I also have sustained heavy breathing. Has anyone experienced this? I sprayed about 4-5 times. Is the concentration too strong?
Can you please advise on protocol re oral taking of hydrogen peroxide. William campbell douglass states in his book medical miracle never to exceed 10 drops 3 times daily of 3 percent dilution yet others indicate dosages of 3 drops up to 25 drops 3 times a day of the much more stronger 35 percent. Two of which are the little help brochure supplied with the 35 percent food grade h2o2 I purchased and also the book the one minute cure. thank you. hazel.
Does the peroxide colour your mouth and throat when you inhale?

I have been in contact with Bill Munro regarding 3% hydrogen peroxide inhalation therapy. He made it abundundantly clear that the HP you buy at drug stores is perfectly OK — even with stabilizers.
When I pointed out to him that I had read a lot of posts stating H202 with stabilizers is a real no-no, he said, "Baloney! Don't concern yourself! I've been doing it for umpteen years now and I'm healthy and I haven't had any negative effects."
I started inhaling the h2o2 just over 3 weeks ago. I have a facial pain situation like a stinging and burning now for 17 years. Have tried lots of things. This h2o2 inhalation is excellent for my pain. First I dilute it to 1%. That is 2 parts water added to one part 3% peroxide in a pint jar. For spraying, I use an elongated, 2 oz spray bottle from Wal-Mart. I spray every 30 minutes after meals until the pain subsides because my pain starts after eating. When my pain is suppressed, I spray every hour or two. I spray 3 pumps per breath, for 10 breaths, which is 30 sprays per dose. I look forward to doing this long term to cure whatever is diseased in my body. I may purchase the Conair or Revlon facial sauna system to try breathing the steam at the same 1% peroxide strength.

First question.. I know that you have answered questions concerning this many times, but what I want to know is how long do I leave the nebulizer run and how many times a day(with 1% hydrogen peroxide)? My son, who has severe Cerebral palsy, goes from a cold to pneumonia. When that happens he has to go to the hospital for a week and get antibiotics, and treatments to clear his very congested lungs! . I want to do everything for him at home instead. I read 1% hydrogen peroxide in the nebulizer. Also saw vinegar and sea salt. Does that mean I should do all 3 in the nebulizer?
Do I give him Zopenex(Med) too. When he starts with a cold we do xopenex(via nebulizer) every 2-4 hours to open up his lungs.
Next question...... I give him 1/2 tsp. of Himalyan salt a day in his tube feeding. His food goes directly into the jejunum. He also has to have everything that accumulates in his stomach drained out 24/7. The reason is that his reflux is so bad that he will aspirate anything left in there. But in doing that he is losing electrolytes. That is why I give him the himalyan salt. Any suggestions on what I can give him to replace electrolytes? Magnesium and potassium get low and he has to be hospitalized for that too!

I started using the 35 percent dropper method in distilled water several weeks ago. Well, I caught a cold and it is one of the toughest colds I have had in years! I thought that this would help. It has now settled in my lungs, I am constantly coughing and wheezing. I have decided to try the Bill Munro method using the 3 percent.
My question is: is it normal to feel that peroxide bubbling and slight stinging in the throat after inhaling? I am using small spray bottle to administer.

This concerns H2O2 and particularly inhalation. I read the whole post on inhalation including the warning to smokers and individuals who have had medication via inhalers'
Please could you point me to this warning for smokers I have been searching for it for days now and can't find it. Thanks

Never keep undiluted h202 food grade in glass containers, it'll explode!! Plastic containers only!!
My question is, is it ok to nebulise 3% h202 while on oxycontin slow release pain killers? I tried it today and my lungs and nose feel a bit sore even when I reduced it to 1and 1/2%. Mind, I did smoke a cig 5mins later! I also have just had a full hip replacement, but not too concerned about that. My lungs feel a bit painful, has anyone else had this while nebulising, and is it maybe a possible Herxheimer reaction? Gratefull for n e help or comments thanks x

just a couple of observations: if you are having adverse reactions either
a)you are using it incorrectly with the wrong dilution ratio of h202 to water (probably the main cause)
b) have a sensitivity to it, just as some people take 500mg's of a pain killer whereas, others may only take 200mg's for the same effect. *****Theraputic doses can vary from person to person even with natural remedies*****.
Also, I smoked for many many years but have quit and now see the IRONY of being afraid to try BMIM while once upon a time I was a 2-pack-a-dayer (each and every cigarette containing over 4,000 deadly chemicals ugh! ). I think any of these remedies should be approached with research and starting small up to what works for you. God Bless!
