K.O. COPD with H2O2 Therapy

How Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide Helps COPD and Emphysema

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, COPD, is a very common lung diseases that makes it difficult to breathe, can cause chronic bronchitis, and includes the illness emphysema. Smoking is usually the cause for this condition; however, exposure to certain gases or fumes at work or heavy amounts of secondhand smoke and pollution can also contribute. COPD’s symptoms include coughing, fatigue, respiratory infections, shortness of breath, and wheezing.

COPD vs. Emphysema

COPD is the umbrella term covering conditions like emphysema and chronic bronchitis. The difference between COPD and emphysema is based on severity. People with emphysema have COPD that has progressed causing permanent damage to the lungs. The lung damage with emphysema is deep in the lungs, damaging the alveoli and preventing oxygen from being absorbed into the blood. The alveoli move mucus and debris out of the lungs and also move carbon dioxide out of the blood stream, ridding the body of waste gasses. When these alveoli are damaged they lose their elasticity and their ability to move oxygen into the body supporting all major organs and their proper functioning, hence the shortness of breath. The heart is forced to pump vigorously, leading to high blood pressure and even heart failure.

Conventional Treatment

At best, conventional medicine provides relief from the symptoms of emphysema and prevents serious complications associated with the illness. Conventional treatment includes:

  • Bronchodilators
  • Inhaled steroids
  • Antibiotics
  • Pulmonary rehabilitation
  • Supplemental oxygen
  • Lung volume reduction
  • Lung transplant

These conventional treatments have side effects including:

  • Lowered immune system
  • High blood sugar
  • Weight gain
  • Easy bruising
  • Reduced bone density
  • Muscle breakdown and weakness
  • Cataracts
  • Glaucoma
  • Adrenal insufficiency
  • Yeast infection in mouth
  • Hoarseness
  • Tremor
  • Tachycardia
  • Indigestion
  • Muscle cramps
  • Slow uterine contractions

How Does Food Grade Hydrogen Peroxide Help?

Medical researcher, biochemist and chiropractor, Dr. David G. Williams believes that H2O2 therapy can offer more benefits than traditional medicine with less side effects,

“Using 1 ounce of 35% peroxide per 1 gallon of non-chlorinated water in a vaporizer improves nighttime breathing tremendously. But intravenous infusion holds the real key to relief. It has the ability to cleanse the inner lining of the lungs and restore the ability to breathe.”

Oxygen from the hydrogen peroxide bubbles in the lining of the lungs, removing the mucus and debris accumulated and the patients coughs it up. The peroxide cleans the surfaces of the lungs and kills any bacterial infections present. This improves breathing and in some cases oxygen therapy and wheelchair use are no longer needed.

A History of H2O2 Therapy

This is not a new idea. During the 60s, Dr. Charles H. Farr, often referred to as the “Father of Oxidative Medicine” discovered the curing abilities of hydrogen peroxide, specifically through intravenous use. Dr. Farr presents his case for intravenous infusions of hydrogen peroxide as follows:

“Its ability to oxidize almost any physiologic or pathologic substance, in addition to producing increased tissue and cellular oxygen tensions, has proven it to have therapeutic value… Because of its importance in regulating multiple metabolic functions, hydrogen peroxide could best be described as the ‘Master Regulating Molecule’ of the body.”

Dr. Farr confirmed his theory by giving intravenous H2O2 to patients with “Type A/Shanghai influenza” in a study during the winter of 1989–1990. Twenty of the patients treated with H2O2 only missed 0.25 days from work, whereas the control group lost two entire work days. Dr. Farr recommended H2O2 therapy as treatment in the following:

  • Influenza
  • Bronchitis
  • Herpes zoster
  • Asthmatic reactions
  • Epstein-Barr virus
  • CMV
  • HIV
  • Type II diabetes
  • COPD
  • Vascular disease
  • Arthritis
  • Chronic pain
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Toxic dementia
  • Parkinsonism
  • Migraine headaches
  • Immune regulation
  • Hypothyroidism to euthyroidism
  • Remove atheromatous plaques
  • Protect ischemic myocardium
  • Convert ventricular fibrillation
  • Abort an impending stroke
  • And destroy tumorous cells

Through his extensive research, he found intravenous infusion of hydrogen peroxide to be, “an important therapeutic tool for every physician” without any signs of toxicity or side effects to note. Dr. Farr founded the International Bio-Oxidative Medical Foundation (IBOMF) and the International Oxidative Medicine Association (IOMA) to share his findings with others.

But H2O2 therapy dates back farther than this, as far back as the 1920s. Its use to treat the pneumonia epidemic after World War I was written in medical journals and in the 40s Father Richard Willhelm advocated the use of hydrogen peroxide to treat bacterial-related mental illness, skin disease, polio and more. He founded a non-profit organization to share his findings called, Educational Concern for Hydrogen Peroxide (ECHO), but as there wasn’t much financial gain in hydrogen peroxide therapy compared to that of prescription drugs which can be patented, its popularity fizzled out and little research on the topic is funded today even though its therapeutic uses are well documented.

H2O2: Increasing Tissue Oxygen Levels

It is common knowledge that our oxygen needs are not being met. Chlorinated water decreases our oxygen levels in our bodies. Processed food contains less oxygen to feed our organs. Antibiotic use, hydrogenation, and pollution all contribute to our body’s lack of available oxygen. It is also supported by years of research that the most common illnesses currently plaguing our society are directly correlated with oxygen deprivation including, but not limited to:

  • Asthma
  • Emphysema
  • Lung disease
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Intestinal parasites
  • Bowel cancer
  • Periodontal disease
  • Cancer of all forms
  • Immune system disorders
  • And chronic fatigue

Dr. David G. Williams states, “hydrogen peroxide is one of the few simple miracle substances still available to the public.” Many other professionals agree that H2O2 therapy should be looked into and could very well be the “miracle” cure for many ailments because if its ability to oxidize. Unfortunately, current health care systems do not support funding peroxide research simply because big pharmaceutical companies can not capitalize on the sale of hydrogen peroxide as they can not patent a naturally occurring substance… yet.

    Very interesting but most of us don’t have the ability to travel to Nevada for H2O2 IV’s. Any suggestions for people who live thousands of miles away?

      Hi Faye,
      I’m sorry it took 3 months to reply to your comment. I had to go through over one thousand spam comments before I saw your real comment. Hopefully, you have been able to find a place to buy your hydgrogen peroxide. If not, I would call some nearby local health food stores and ask them if they have 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide. We don’t ship it because there’s an additional hazmat fee charged for mailing it. If you are unable to find a nearby health food store, feel free to call us at 775-324-7382 and we can give you the name of the company we get our 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide from. The woman that works there is very nice and may be able to help you find stores near you that carry her 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide.

    I am trying to find a medical practitioner in the North Dallas Texas area for my 91 year old mother who suffers from COPD. She’s interested in speaking with someone who has gone through the therapy and would like to try the non-intravenous therapy for relief.
    Please contact me as soon as possible with current listing of medical practitioners, I’ve called everyone listed on the The International Oxidative Medicine Association list and only two have phone numbers that are in service.

    I thank you in advance for your kind consideration and cooperation on my request.

      Hi Maxine,
      Sorry we did not check the website comments sooner. We sell food grade hydrogen peroxide. We cannot perscribe or recommend any type of dosage. However, we do have pamphlets that come from a manufacturer that give you suggested uses. If you are able to come into the store, we can give you additional information from that pamphlet.

    Where is Nv. do they do the infusion? I am looking for a friend with COPD.
    6 years ago I was diagnosed with Prostate cancer and my Doctor told me I would have 5 to 15 years without immediate surgery. After doing a bunch of research, I got 35% H2O2 from a chemical supply house. I followed Dr. Williams protocol, started dring 3 drops 3 times a day, increasing by one drop a day, until I got to 25 drops, made it 12 days at that dosage and then tapered off, down to none. the first thing I noticed is that myt skin got really soft, like satin. (in 3 or 4 days), My hair got darker and thicker, my arthritis pain went away. My PSA’s are now lower that they were when I was diagnosed. On my last Urologist visit, he could find no trace and said IF he did not know I had prostate cancer, he would give me a clean bill of health and tell me to come back in 5 years. I asked him to check my records since diagnosed and he said that it was un heard of for anyone to have lower PSA’s now then when diagnosed so long ago. When I asked him to clarify that statement, he said that He had never heard of it before! I then told him about drinking H2O2 and he would not talk about it, I had the same experiance with my general Practicioner, in fact he told me he was not allowed to talk about it.
    Last week I started to get a cold, sneezing, runny nose, feling bad, I drank 5 drops in a glass of water and 6 hours later all symptoms were gone and I felt great.
    I am a firm believer that it works. It does not taste good, so I always rince with Listerine immediately after drinking it.

      I’m not sure if or where they do infusions in Nevada. I’ll see what I can find out, but it may be a few weeks before I’m able to update this and reply. Many people come into the store and buy it, then then dilute it in water and drink it or some people use it in a bath. I don’t think I actually know anyone personally, who gets infusions.

      I apologize for the many month delay in replying. I do not know of specific places that carry food grade 35% Hydrogen Peroxide. I do know that if I were looking for it anywhere in the US, I would start calling all the nearest health food stores and local alternative medicine practitioners. I certainly hope you were able to find a local health food store where you can purchase your food grade hydrogen peroxide. Most places will not ship it because it requires a special hazmat handling fee. Feel free to comment on this post if you found any local stores that carry it, as it might help other people in your area.

    For several years now, I have been using H2o2 in a cool mist humidifier at night and drinking 5-10 drops daily. I have improved greatly, energy and breathing. Was told by my Doctor that I would be in a wheelchair and on oxygen within a year. That was 4 years ago and I am so much better and improved from H2o2 and none of the Rx that doctor wanted me to take. Told the doctor that his medicine was only a BANDAIDE that I wanted a cure. When I have bad times for breathing, like when I walk up three flights of stairs, I take out my essential oil of peppermint and breath in and my heart quiets down and breathing returns to normal. Peppermint is a lung cleanser. Would be very interested to know the autopsy results of the lungs of someone who used the Hydrogen Peroxide and what they found. Go according to how you feel……let your body guide you. There is side effects in everything we do in this world, especially RX from your doctor. Nothing is perfect. I know I am 90 percent better and that’s good enough for me!
