HYDROGEN PEROXIDE INHALATION FOR C.O.P.D. / LUNG ISSUES
I have been using assisted oxygen for the past five or six years. Lately I have been getting fed up with it because my health has been slowly deteriorating.
A couple of months ago I bought a 20 MHz Sweep/Function Generator, a Model GB-4000. It is another fantastic machine but as far as helping my shortness of breath. It did some, but just not enough. If I wanted to go outside of the house I still needed to carry oxygen in a tank and be darn sure that I didn't run short, i.e., carry extra tanks everywhere.
I also have a nebulizer, it's a little machine that creates fog from liquids. I tried putting an ounce of 3% Hydrogen Peroxide in it and inhaling it. Not much of a difference. Maybe 10 minutes of relief from the air hose.
Yesterday afternoon I took a small bottle, it previously had lens cleaner in it, and filled it with 3% Hydrogen Peroxide. Then I sprayed the H202 into my mouth as I inhaled, as deeply as I could. Three sprays. I haven't had my air hose on for 45 minutes and I am feeling just fine! At one hour I was tempted to put the air hose back on but instead I gave myself one more spray. The effect is the same as if I had put the hose on.
Here I am at 2 hours and going to spray again. Again, one spray and the effect is the same as if I had put the air hose on.
Folks, I may just be returning my air concentrator to the Rental company in a week or two or just using it for sleeping.
When I think of all the specialists that I have been to in the past 10 years, it is disgusting to think that not a one of them had the answer to my restricted lifestyle. Of course if the General Practitioner, whose office is around the corner had told me to spray H202 into my mouth to solve the problem none of those other specialists would have earned a dime, would they? Quite the sloppy system that we have got going here!
So, if you or someone in your family comes down with a cough, the flu or God forbid, C.O.P.D. I suggest trying some $1 a bottle, 3% Hydrogen Peroxide to cure your ails BEFORE allowing the licensed doctors to drain your wallet.
Also, I strongly suggest reading this entire website http://www.earthclinic.com because there's lots of wonderful reviews from real people on it. There's even a section for pets!
Yup, I have got a hunch that I am no longer going to be known as the old man with the hose in his nose. LOL"
That was two hours ago. I consider this to be a 200% improvement from yesterday morning because I am doing something I haven't done for five years, sat at my desk without using an airhose to assist my breathing. Whatever bug was in my lungs is finally headed for the cemetary.
Good for you! I’m going to remember this.
Hydrogen Peroxide kills E-Coli on fruit too. A whole lot cheaper than veggie wash.
Just curious. Do you take anti-oxidants in large doses. Like blueberry juice? I ask because just yesterday there was an article saying that taking them too much could lower people hydrogen peroxide levels and leave them (especially the elderly) feeling tired and out of breath.
I’m glad you are feeling relief, I know COPD is a serious condition.
However, I’ll just copy here some comments from Yahoo Answers to someone who wanted to inhale HP through the nose.
These comments are not sourced either, but really you need to talk to a doctor before inhaling something especially if you continue with it long term:
“Hydrogen peroxide is only for external use.
Take this for example H2O2 in a biological medium breaks into H2O (water) and O (molecular oxygen). This molecular oxygen is a very powerful oxidizer and only one molecule can initiate a chain of oxidation with release of free radicals throughout the cells. Free radicals damage cell structure, proteins, enzymes and are also responsible for cancer.
This is why H2O2 is used as a local disinfecting agent. The released molecular oxygen kills bacteria and other germs around the wound.”
Also found this:
“Hydrogen peroxide is an oxidizer that destroys loose tissue and it’ll have a field day with the membranes inside your nose and sinuses. It works great on sores on external skin because that’s what it’s for... to cleanse the wound area out. But never put it into your nose, ears, or eyes.”
Please be careful and at least talk to a doctor about this!
I have had a rather extreme history with pneumonia and bronchitis, almost on an annual basis. I have also used a similar approach and have not had a problem in the past two years. One shot every 4 hrs as soon as I feel a cough or tickle in my throat. Taste is nasty but it works very well.
Interesting! I was always getting infections after trimming my toenails & started putting Hydrogen Peroxide on afterwards. It solved the problem. A few years ago I mentioned this to my doctor & her response was that the medical community was no longer recommending putting peroxide directly on the skin. I haven’t stopped. No point in messing with what works. And I haven’t seen any issues as a result.

I had some minor surgery this week on my face and the doctor’s assistant who was cleaning up my face said that it was good to clean up blood but not to use it on a wound as it kills tissue. He recommended alcohol for cleaning the wound.
Interesting - do you dilute it?
IV use of hydrogen peroxide used to be a common practise. There are still a few doctors in this country who use it.
>Do you take anti-oxidants in large doses. Like blueberry juice?<
No, I don’t. I do eat lots of hot spices though.
I am currently experimenting with H2O2 in my hot tub. Just the 3% type. Not sure what I think of it yet.
I have been using food grade (35%) hydrogen peroxide for 2 years for many things including stopping colds at the first sign of symptoms.
NOTE: You MUST dilute the 35% stuff with water or it will burn you!
This is a simple, cheap killer of bad stuff, and totally ignored by the medical world. I have not fallen ill for nearly 2 years now, with all my coworkers hacking up their lungs around me continuously.
Drinking a small dose of food grade mixed with plenty of water does the trick for me and my family.
Something new that has helped my mom is this thing
called a “lung flute”
Might want to check it out where you got your nebulizer
I’d be interested in seeing “before and after” arterial blood gases to see if there is any difference in PaO2 and SaO2.
IMO honest to God opinion that was put out by doctors and/or medical researchers who are fully aware of the homeopathic attributes of H2O2 and the fact that it is a low cost item available to everyone.
I now know a couple of people who use H2O2 to stop colds and sore throats by gargling with it. My daughter uses once a week it to brush her teeth.
It should NOT be used in the nostrils. Those membranes are too sensitive for it.
Like you, I am on O2 assist. One medication that really helped is Spiriva from Boeringer/Pfizer. Felt as if a wall had been taken off my chest, and if I miss my daily dose I can feel it. As others noted, H2O2 can do more damage long-term so be cautious in its use. Stay well.
I understand, just please be careful if you haven’t asked your doctor about it yet. Your lungs are sensitive as well, and I could imagine a lot of substances that would kill infection in the lung but might damage the tissue short or long term.
I just dump a cap full into a large bowl of water and run the fruit around in it and let them air dry. Any that don’t have a peel or rind that I will remove, but I do oranges because the kids peel them themselves and I don’t want anything going from fingernails to fruit.
If you have the equipment necessay, I’d be interested in the result too.
I appreciate the concern but so far today I have sprayed my mouth once in three hours and am not feeling the need to do so. The air concentrator has been turned off but I have a bottle close by if I need air assist.
Bookmark for later.
What is food grade hydrogen peroxide ?? I have only seen peroxide in the brown bottle.
Where do you get food grade hydrogen peroxide?
I use Earth Clinic for tons of remedies. Great site and usually saves a trip to the doctor for most of the average ailments.
My question as well
3% Hydrogen Peroxide helped to dry out “water in my ear” when nothing else worked.
Source link did not work—maybe it is getting swamped with hits ;)
While I'm not a parent, and don't have the very real and first hand concerns about their safety that you as a mother does; I can't help but think that sometimes we go a little overboard in some areas. We've seen some bugs mutate from overuse of anti-bacterial washes and soaps, and become even more virulent and drug resistant.
It seems to me that if we take work away from our God given immune system, then like a muscle not given work to build and strengthen it , it atrophies. And the immune system is a learning system. It can't deal with stuff later on if it isn't exposed to it, or something similar, either by natural exposure or inoculation (for the really nasty stuff), or even passed from mother to child via milk.
Worrying about fingernail dirt getting into citrus, an acidic medium, seems silly given the number of times during the day when they may put fingers in mouth after doing who knows what with them while you weren't looking.
But what do I know. Like I said - not a parent and not a doctor.
I use it to stop colds. And it works. My grandfather used to brush his teeth with Hydrogen Peroxide and baking soda.
Sorry, with illegals pooing in the fields then picking what you eat, I would suggest you wash your fruit.
Hydrogen Peroxide in Nature
When ozone mixes with moisture in the air, it forms hydrogen peroxide, which comes down in rain and snow. It occurs naturally in fresh fruits and vegetables, some coming from rain and some manufactured during photosynthesis. (6) Hydrogen peroxide is also found in mother’s milk, with an especially high concentration in colostrum (the first milk secreted, right after birth).
One researcher states, “The generation of H2O2 in cellular processes seems to be purposeful, and H2O2 cannot be dismissed as a mere undesirable by-product.... The capacity for generation of H202 is now found to be widespread in a variety of organisms and in the organelles of the cells.” (12)
Check with a pulmonologist. Maybe he can check for damage. Maybe he can get a good clinical trial going.
I wish I could do this at work :( So many of my residents are ex military who worked around asbestos, smoked,etc. It’s depressing. I use prayer but something medicinal that actually works would be nice.
Saved, this is a lot of information this time of night. Where do you get the food grade of peroxide? Have only seen the good ole brown bottle.
Click the link right below that one. (Good Source)
Thanks for sharing.
>Where do you get the food grade of peroxide? Have only seen the good ole brown bottle.<
Some hair salons have it also.
There no financial motive to do a full scale trial. H2O2 is a common over the counter item, not a high priced patented drug.
The heck there aint. Can you say National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute of the NIH and the COPD tabs picked up by the VA hospitals, Medicare and Medicaid?
The financial motive comes from the opportunity to make a bucketful of cash from a patient who is disease ridden and will require repeated, long term care by the doctor(s) or their insurance company.
Where’s the money in having patients come in and you order a blood test. The patient returns a week later, you instruct the patient to watch a two minute video on the correct use of a nasal sprayer. Then you tell the patients to go to their local drug store to buy a nasal sprayer and a bottle of H2O2.
You never see that patient again or half his family and friends because they have all switched over to homeopathic medicine, the kind Gramma used to practice on the farm.
Heck there’s more articles on the internet about homeopathic medicine than you can read. A little common sense and overcoming your natural trepidation is all you need to try this stuff out. Don’t jump in all wild eyed and raring to go because that’s how you can put yourself into the hospital, real quick. Slow and easy is my advice. Read the warning and read every review you can lay your hands on.
I am not going to preach about my GB-4000 but I think, it too, is also a life saver.
Wheres the money in having patients come in and you order a blood test.
You've been reading too much internet BS too long. Docs want to help. They don't have time to waste. The gov't needs to save money too.
Did I say that Docs don’t want to help? I did not.
Why not be so nice as to explain to me why none of the dozen or so doctors i have seen in the past ten years told me to try H2O2?
I can tell you why, they weren’t taught about the medicine practices of 50 years ago where using H2O2 to stop colds from advancing was a popular thing. The major drug companies would much prefer that your prescription bill each week was $150 or more.
Look up the uses for apple cider vinegar, if you are really interested in this stuff.
