Could Nebulizing Hydrogen Peroxide Dramatically Reduce Your Cold Symptoms?

What if there was a way to treat upper respiratory diseases for a dollar or less? Something you can do in the comfort of your own home. With ingredients you purchase from your local grocery store or Amazon. Nebulizing Hydrogen Peroxide is one such treatment. Along with building a strong immune system with supplements such as Vitamin D, Hydrogen Peroxide on colds can possibly knock it out in just a couple days.

Sounds pretty cool. Also sounds like it might be too good to be true.

Yet many doctors seem to think it can really help. Especially elderly people.

There’s some prep work involved. Not a lot, but some.

Isn’t Nebulizing Hydrogen Peroxide Nebulizing a Disinfectant?

Nebulizing Hydrogen Peroxide in small amounts can really help with colds or fluYes it is. People use it to disinfect surfaces of nasty viruses, bacteria, fungi and other icky things. In high enough concentrations, Hydrogen Peroxide can bleach surfaces. So it’s natural to assume Hydrogen Peroxide would be toxic if ingested. But people have also found hydrogen peroxide on colds has a very healthy effect.

The scientific literature would suggest otherwise. Hydrogen Peroxide has the following properties:

  1. Documented antiseptic (disinfectant) abilities when applied externally
  2. Completely nontoxic when appropriately administered to an individual
  3. Nebulizing hydrogen peroxide has been shown to be extremely effective for the rapid elimination of any pathogen presence in the sinuses, nose, throat, and deep into the lungs.
  4. Tiny in size, nonionic, and permeable to all cell, intracellular organelle, and pathogen walls and membranes
  5. Present everywhere in the body, continually produced both inside and outside the cells
  6. Chemically stable and not readily reactive like other ROS (reactive oxygen species), as it requires specific cofactors to have its pro-oxidant, pathogen-killing effect
  7. Rapidly produces hydroxyl radicals (pro-oxidant effect) in the presence of unbound iron (Fenton reaction)
  8. Can spontaneously be generated from water to a limited degree
  9. Increased production in the face of infection and inflammation
  10. Generated in massive amounts into the extracellular space by phagocytes in order to respond to pathogen presence
  11. Secreted continually by the cells lining the airways, serving as a natural defense mechanism against newly inhaled pathogens
  12. Naturally present in exhaled breath of healthy human subjects
  13. Increased presence in exhaled breath when antioxidant status is improved in COPD patients with nebulized N-acetylcysteine
  14. Pulmonary infection and inflammation results in a compensatory increased production of HP, as measured in the exhaled air.
  15. Naturally present in the urine, helping to minimize the occurrence or persistence of infections there
  16. Metabolically breaks down into water and oxygen after pathogens are killed
  17. Improves blood oxygenation when nebulizing hydrogen peroxide
  18. Effectively serves throughout the body as an effective storage form of oxygen
  19. Extracellular production of HP is massively increased in the presence of highly-dosed vitamin C
  20. Can be considered a nutrient by virtue of its effects on metabolism and ability to mobilize stored oxygen
  21. Activation of lymphocytes
  22. In an insulin-like fashion, HP can markedly enhance glucose transport/uptake in fibroblasts
  23. HP has a mucolytic (mucus-dissolving) effect that is also of great benefit in mobilizing and eliminating any secretions associated with a pulmonary infection being treated

Nebulizing Hydrogen Peroxide is the Key

Nebulizing Hydrogen Peroxide on colds is a great way to combat respiratory infectionsAt first people thought the best way to administer Hydrogen Peroxide on colds would be intravenously. However, that might be a pain to non-medical personnel and an expensive proposition to find someone to inject it.

So a doctor name Frank Shallenberger came up with the idea to turn Hydrogen Peroxide into a fine mist and breathe it in through a nebulizer. He tried it on himself and his wife with great success. Over the years many people have had great success nebulizing hydrogen peroxide on colds.

Seem like it might be worth a try? Here is a video about Hydrogen Peroxide and an article on how to set up a nebulizer at home.

It’s harmless. The worst thing that happens is that you still have the cold. Seems like the next time you have any kind of respiratory infection, it may be worthwhile to try nebulizing hydrogen peroxide?
