The Benefits of Nebulizing H202

Hydrogen Peroxide has been used for decades to conquer viral/bacterial infections by thousands of doctors in thousands of patients all over the world. It uses the lungs, which have a rich supply of blood vessels, to access the rest of the body. Also by using the lungs, there is direct access to the organs that are most effected by viruses like sinuses, throat, bronchial tracts, and lungs.

Hydrogen peroxide consists of a water molecule (H2O) with an extra oxygen atom (H2O2). It is the extra oxygen atom that makes it so deadly for viruses, bacteria, fungal, and yeast. You can buy food grade H2O2 over the counter and it is very inexpensive.

You can breathe a dilution of H2O2 as an aerosol by using a nebulizer machine OR you can just do a steam inhalation if you don’t have a nebulizer machine.

Nebulized peroxide is an incredibly effective route of getting this oxygen utilizing catalyst into the body via the rich network of blood vessels in the lungs. This is not as strong of a treatment as IV peroxide but it comes close. Caution: Make sure use use the correct dilution because this can be dangerous if done incorrectly. If you feel bad after the peroxide, with flu-like symptoms, headache, fever, diarrhea, fatigue, etc, this is too strong a catalytic stimulation with peroxide. Consult your physician before using peroxide in a nebulizer. It is recommended to make the nebulizing solution more dilute or lessen the time or frequency if you get too much coughing or shortness of breath.

Dr. Frank Shallenberger says: “When my wife developed the first symptoms of the flu, instead of immediately plugging her into a hydrogen peroxide IV, I had her use the nebulizer for ten minutes every waking hour. Using the nebulizer treatment, she was able to get rid of the flu within 72 hours. I knew I was on to something, because IV hydrogen peroxide doesn’t work much better than that. So I bought a dozen nebulizers and began offering the treatment to my patients. Since then I have treated hundreds of cases of colds, flus, sinusitis, and bronchitis all with the same great results. And I found that the nebulizer treatments actually have an advantage over the IV therapy that I hadn’t considered at first. And that is, that not only is the hydrogen peroxide being disseminated into the entire body through the lungs, it is also going directly to the areas of the body that are most affected by viruses – the sinuses, throat, bronchial tract, and lungs.” –

Hydrogen peroxide is a very potent anti-viral. Because the virus enters through the nose, down the sinuses, and in the throat, if you can take a safe dose of a nebulized peroxide through your nasal cavity you can sterilize your sinuses, nasal cavity, and throat. If you can sterilize this area during the incubation process (those first 5 – 14 days before symptoms show) then you can potentially kill the virus before it incubates.

For urgent situations, can use ordinary-store hydrogen peroxide (3%) commonly found in brown plastic bottles. For urgent situations, can use non-chlorinated water instead of normal saline.

Some ozone practitioners recommend for all homes to have a nebulizer, 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide and “normal saline” (salt water concentration similar to inside our bodies). The following is provided as education only and not meant in any way as medical diagnosis or treatment or suggestions of treatment. Any actions you take from the information provided is at your own risk and liability. Some ozone practitioners think the symptoms of flu / colds / sinus infections / bronchitis / pneumonia / acute and chronic viral and non-viral lung and respiratory system challenges may be improved by nebulizing hydrogen peroxide. We have been told that this method in smaller amounts is safe for infants and children also.

To preform this treatment, you will need the following items:

    1. A nebulizer with a face mask that covers your mouth and nose that emits a fine mist
    2. Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide
    3. Lugol’s solution – 2 drops of 2% or 1 drop of 5% Lugol’s solution
    4. Filtered clean water with salt or saline


(A simple example of how to mix this, take 16 ounces of clean, filtered water, 1 teaspoon of salt and 3/4 teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide. Mix these up and pour 1-2 tablespoons of the solution into the nebulizer then add the Lugol’s solution.)

If you do not have access to a nebulizer, you may put ~ 1 part 3% peroxide to 5 parts boiling water (example: 1 cup 3% peroxide to 5 cups water): put head over the mist and breathe in the steam.

*If you are healthy then there is no need to nebulize daily. Only nebulize if you think you have been infected like being sneezed on or after plane ride.
*If you have a compromised immune system then it is OK to nebulize daily for prevention.
*If you are having symptoms like a runny nose or sore throat then nebulize 4 x day for 10-15 minutes until symptoms are resolved.
