Nebulized Peroxide – A Easy Treatment for COVID-19


Dr. Mercola Interviews the Consultants

This text is a part of a weekly collection by which Dr. Mercola interviews numerous specialists on quite a lot of well being points. To see extra knowledgeable interviews, click on here.

Dr. David Brownstein, who has a clinic simply exterior of Detroit, Michigan, has efficiently handled over 200 sufferers with what has turn into my favourite intervention for COVID-19 and different higher respiratory infections, particularly nebulized hydrogen peroxide.

A peer-reviewed consecutive case collection of 107 COVID-19 sufferers handled with nebulized peroxide and different cures, together with oral nutritional vitamins A, C and D, iodine, intravenous hydrogen peroxide and iodine in addition to intravenous (IV) vitamin C, together with intramuscular ozone, was printed within the July 2020 subject of Science, Public Well being Coverage, and the Regulation.1 All sufferers survived.

Nebulized Peroxide and Iodine

On the time of this interview, the variety of sufferers efficiently handled with these all-natural methods exceeds 230, and he has now printed a e book describing his method, titled “A Holistic Approach to Viruses.”

“[Among] our [COVID-19] sufferers, we have had no deaths,” he says. “We have had a few hospitalizations, however a lot smaller than must be for the reported statistics. And we’re nonetheless utilizing the identical protocol we have been utilizing for 25 plus years for flu and flu-like diseases.

A affected person I known as over the weekend advised me ‘There are two issues out of what you gave me that I might inform actually made me really feel higher.’ I gave him the entire protocol of oral vitamin A, C, D and iodine and nebulized peroxide and iodine.

He mentioned, ‘I forgot to make use of the iodine the primary day or two. While you requested me about it, I re-added it again in orally. That made the distinction. My mucus thinned out, my respiration was higher. I forgot to place the iodine within the nebulizer [too], and [when] I did each on the identical time — the oral iodine and the nebulized hydrogen peroxide with iodine — every part cleared up …’

His respiration was 80%, 90% higher shortly after the primary or second dose of iodine. He is one other success story that we have had, which is supporting folks’s immune techniques throughout these viral sickness occasions … I might implore my colleagues so as to add iodine into no matter routine you are utilizing to treating sufferers who’re in poor health with flu-like diseases reminiscent of COVID-19.”

Early Remedy Just about Eliminates Lengthy-Haul Syndrome

In my latest interview with Dr. Vladimir Zelenko, by which we focus on hydroxychloroquine therapy, he identified that not one of the sufferers handled throughout the first 5 days of symptom onset went on to develop long-haul syndrome.

This has by and huge been Brownstein expertise as nicely. Of the preliminary 107 sufferers included in his case report, 2% developed long-haul syndrome. That is in stark distinction to the 20% to 40% reported elsewhere, he notes.

“The large catastrophe of COVID-19 that historical past will inform sometime is the powers that be telling us there’s nothing we are able to do. Simply keep dwelling, lock your self in your basement, quarantine your self from your loved ones, put on your masks, social distance — that is it. No therapies, no nothing, simply wait until the vaccine comes out.

This has resulted in over 400,000 deaths. Possibly the dying numbers are exaggerated, however lots of people have died as a result of the governments and the powers that be, the AMA and all people else on the market, have mentioned ‘There’s nothing you’ll be able to provide’ and ‘Do not provide something as a result of it hasn’t gone by randomized, double blind, placebo managed research … and if docs do it, we’ll censor them and maintain them accountable.’ That is been the most important catastrophe of this entire factor,” Brownstein says.

Most Are Poor in Primary Immune Boosters

It’s vital to acknowledge so long as your immune system is as much as par, your physique can overcome most if not all viral invaders. And, your immune system operate relies on correct diet, not medicine or vaccines. Brownstein’s use of dietary dietary supplements and different immune boosting methods goes again many years, nicely earlier than there have been antiviral medicine accessible.

He factors out {that a} overwhelming majority of individuals have low ranges of vitamin C, for instance, which helps each your innate and adaptive immune techniques. About 90% of his sufferers are additionally poor in vitamin D, which is one other essential immune regulator. You could have vitamin D receptors in each your innate and adaptive immune techniques. Vitamin D deficiency can also be related to sepsis.

Many are additionally poor in vitamin A. Right here, the satan’s within the particulars. Beta carotene is a water-soluble type of vitamin A that doesn’t present the immune boosting advantages of vitamin A. For that, you want the fat-soluble kind. So, be sure to’re taking emulsified vitamin A.

“Beta carotene doesn’t present the immune system impacts vitamin A does,” Brownstein says. “Vitamin A helps reduce cytokine storm. It helps reduce the inflammatory components … It helps to decrease TNF alpha. And the white blood cells want vitamin A as an integral a part of their functioning. So, it helps each the innate and the adaptive immune techniques combat again.”

Nutritional vitamins A, C, D and Iodine

For many years now, Brownstein has prescribed nutritional vitamins A, C and D to his sufferers, and on the first indicators of sickness, he instructs them to jack up the dosages to 100,000 models of vitamin A and 50,000 models of vitamin D3 per day for 4 days, together with 1,000 milligrams of vitamin C per hour throughout waking hours till signs recede.

“These have been the primary three issues I did,” he says. “What I discovered was that when folks received the flu or flu-like sickness, they usually began taking these three issues instantly they might get higher in 24 hours. It was wonderful.

A couple of years later, I discovered about iodine and began testing, and located 97% of individuals are poor in iodine. The overwhelming majority markedly poor, assembly WHO requirements of severely poor in iodine. So, I added iodine into that protocol.

My common dose of iodine for most individuals is — if they do not have glandular issues like issues with the breasts, prostates, thyroid, pancreas, ovaries, uterus — about 12.5 milligrams a day. If they’ve issues with these glands, it might be extra.

The typical dose of iodine through the years that I’ve had my sufferers on is 25 milligrams a day. And it is a mixture of iodine and iodide, which is present in Lugol’s resolution. That was rapidly added into that four-part routine, and that made an enormous distinction. Folks favored that. They felt higher with it.”

As time went on, he found case histories describing the therapy of pneumonia, bronchitis and different lung issues with nebulized iodine. In consequence, he added that into his antiviral routine as nicely.

If you happen to’re utilizing 5% Lugol’s resolution, merely add one drop to your nebulizer after filling it with the diluted peroxide resolution. If you happen to’re utilizing 2% Lugol’s resolution, which is on the market over-the-counter, add two drops. In fact, this must be carried out with a health care provider’s session.

IV Peroxide, Vitamin C and Ozone

A couple of years after that, he got here throughout hydrogen peroxide, which can be utilized each intravenously and in a nebulizer. The truth that your physique naturally produces big quantities of hydrogen peroxide in all cells can clue you in to its significance. 

“I began utilizing IV and nebulized peroxide, and I combined the nebulized peroxide with a nebulized iodine in a single resolution. For folks creating lung issues, pneumonia, lung most cancers or COPD, in the event that they have been coughing, couldn’t breathe, in the event that they have been wheezing and issues like that, including nebulized hydrogen peroxide at 0.04% dilution and one drop of 5% Lugol’s resolution, which provides 6.25 milligrams of iodine, actually helped lots of people out.”

Finally, he began including in IV vitamin C, hydrogen peroxide and ozone therapy. When COVID-19 broke out the winter of 2020, Brownstein determined to do this primary antiviral protocol, discovering it labored simply as nicely in opposition to SARS-CoV-2 an infection as another viral an infection.

Through the first wave in March and April 2020, not one of the employees that continued working fell in poor health. Finally, one employees member received sick, triggering a cascade of an infection among the many employees. All have been handled and all efficiently recovered. “Now now we have a herd immunity workplace,” Brownstein says. “Eighty-seven % of us have antibodies to COVID-19.”

Nebulized Peroxide Fundamentals

I’ve embraced nebulized peroxide because the COVID-19 pandemic broke out and have acquired many anecdotal reviews from individuals who have efficiently used it, even at extra superior phases. Based mostly on Brownstein’s expertise, I now additionally suggest including iodine when nebulizing, because it seems to make it much more efficient.

Remember the fact that the peroxide must be diluted with saline. I like to recommend diluting it right down to 0.1%. Brownstein recommends diluting it to 0.04%. Tom Levy recommends 3% and better. Ideally, use meals grade hydrogen peroxide, because it doesn’t have any dangerous stabilizers. If you happen to pre-dilute to 0.04%, it’ll keep potent for about three months when stored refrigerated. If you happen to do a 0.1% dilution, it could keep potent a bit longer.

If you happen to don’t have entry to saline, you possibly can make your personal by mixing one teaspoon of unprocessed salt (reminiscent of Himalayan salt, Celtic salt or Redmond’s actual salt) right into a pint of water. This offers you a 0.9% saline resolution, which is concerning the focus present in physique fluids. Utilizing that saline, you’ll then dilute the hydrogen peroxide as described on this chart.

Don’t combine the peroxide with straight distilled water, as this might doubtlessly trigger physiological harm. You want the salt in there. You’ll be able to, nevertheless, make your saline utilizing distilled water.

Additionally, to optimize your advantages, you should definitely purchase an electrical tabletop jet nebulizer. The battery-driven handheld variations merely aren’t as efficient. As Brownstein factors out, in practically all circumstances the place sufferers weren’t getting higher, they have been utilizing a handheld nebulizer. As soon as they received a extra highly effective model that may drive the peroxide deep into the lungs, the therapy began working because it ought to. 

I strongly suggest shopping for every part you want beforehand, as a way to deal with your self or your loved ones at a second’s discover. You don’t need to wait days to your order to reach earlier than beginning therapy.

Mechanisms of Motion

What’s it about hydrogen peroxide that makes this nebulizing therapy work so nicely? Clearly, common peroxide is a topical disinfectant that kills viruses on contact. Nevertheless it additionally appears to have a secondary messenger impact. Brownstein explains:

“It is an oxidative remedy. We’re sort of all conditioned that antioxidants are good and oxidants are dangerous, however actually, you want a steadiness of them. It is known as a redox. It is like a teeter-totter. You want oxidants to stimulate the breakdown of outdated cells, outdated and injured tissue, and also you want antioxidants to stimulate the restore of these outdated cells and outdated tissues.

So, the oxidants do have a profit. They stimulate the redox pathway, and what I believe we’re getting with hydrogen peroxide, ozone and high-dose vitamin C is that you simply’re stimulating this redox pathway to maneuver electrons round.

While you transfer electrons round you can also make power molecules, ATP, you’ll be able to stimulate restore cells and STEM cells and get issues shifting once more. The human physique produces an amazing quantity of peroxide. It is produced all around the physique in each cell. If this was an oxidant remedy that is harmful, why would we produce a lot of it?

Utilizing small quantities of peroxide, both IV or nebulizer, solely has scientific impact. I don’t see unfavorable results with it. [Vitamin C also] stimulates peroxide manufacturing whenever you use excessive doses.”

Except for having antiviral results, nebulizing peroxide can even enhance oxygenation and respiration typically, and will be very useful for people who smoke. This is sensible as peroxide breaks down in your physique into water and oxygen. Brownstein believes it additionally has a detoxifying impact on the lungs.

It’s fascinating to notice that Brownstein and his colleagues by no means used any of the drug regimens that many docs swear by, reminiscent of ivermectin or hydroxychloroquine.

Whereas he has appeared on the scientific literature, noting there’s ample proof to help their use and security, all of his sufferers recovered with out them, so he by no means resorted to prescribing both of them. Brownstein didn’t even use zinc, which is a staple dietary intervention for viral infections.

For sufferers who journey and fear about contracting COVID-19, he merely reminds them to carry their nebulizer, correctly diluted hydrogen peroxide and iodine. That manner, they’ll nebulize once they get to their vacation spot, which ought to successfully kill off any pathogens they may have been uncovered to throughout their travels.

Treatments to Keep away from

Except for understanding what to take and what to do, it’s additionally vital to know what to keep away from. Examples embody Tamiflu which, when it really works, might scale back symptomatic sickness for less than a few hours at greatest, whereas having vital aspect impact dangers. Brownstein additionally advises in opposition to Tylenol and different antipyretics reminiscent of aspirin and ibuprofen. The explanation for it is because you do not need to suppress your physique’s potential to mount a fever. Brownstein explains:

“Fever is there for a function. We have been designed completely to outlive viral diseases, to dwell to outdated age and have mind operate into outdated age. If we help the physique, if we give it the fundamental vitamins it wants and the fundamental uncooked supplies and help that it wants, it might probably do actually cool issues.

The issue is, within the poisonous world we dwell in, enzymes are poisoned and receptors are blocked. We take all these medicine that poison enzymes and block receptors. Fever is your good friend and the fever’s there for a motive. Micro organism and viruses don’t love a raised physique temperature. That is why the physique raises the temperature throughout an an infection.

It is attempting to make the surroundings inhospitable for a pathogen. So, the worst factor you are able to do in that scenario, except the fever is just too excessive — a fever over 103 levels Fahrenheit, possibly 103.5 104 F., could cause mind issues and seizures and you’ll die from a fever.

However most individuals do not get fevers up that top once they’re sick. They get low grade fevers, 99.5 to possibly 101, 102 F. I inform sufferers, do not take something for that. Simply help the physique and let it do its factor.

You’ll be able to management your temperature a lot better than utilizing antipyretics like Tylenol or ibuprofen by taking a tepid tub or sponge bathing with tepid water. A shower with Epsom salts was very useful for my COVID sufferers, and it has been useful for different viral diseases through the years.”

The Drawback With Tylenol

Tylenol particularly can also be problematic for different causes. Importantly, it poisons the enzyme that makes glutathione, a really potent antioxidant that your physique produces intracellularly. While you’re coping with a bacterial or viral an infection, you need your physique to make extra glutathione to help affected cells. If you happen to take Tylenol, you block that course of.

“Tylenol additionally has a really slim window of toxicity, which means that in the event you go over the really helpful dose on the label, however not by a lot, you will get Tylenol toxicity. The liver begins to interrupt down and other people die from this,” Brownstein warns.

The therapy for Tylenol toxicity is intravenous N-acetylcysteine (NAC), which is the precursor to creating glutathione. So, I inform my sufferers to keep away from taking Tylenol. I actually made a degree of it with COVID-19, as a result of they wanted glutathione manufacturing.

And so far as Motrin and ibuprofen and aspirin goes, firstly of the disaster, I noticed three sufferers who advised me once they took the primary dose of Motrin for a fever, they collapsed, their system went to hell, they’d hassle respiration. Every little thing received worse an hour or two after that first dose of ibuprofen.

There was an early article that hypothesized taking ibuprofen and NSAIDs would possibly make COVID-19 worse as a result of it might probably have an effect on the ACE2 receptor and make the virus extra more likely to latch onto it. That hasn’t actually been confirmed. I believe it is extra [because] you are blocking the physique’s pure fever response and it is simply not factor to do.”

Again to Fundamentals

Brownstein stresses that it’s not nearly taking sure dietary supplements or nebulizing whenever you’re in poor health. You additionally want to wash up your weight-reduction plan. One of the best therapy is prevention, which you’ll obtain by correct weight-reduction plan and a wholesome way of life every day.

That mentioned, whenever you do get acutely in poor health, in the event you haven’t already eradicated processed meals, that are loaded with sugar and dangerous fat, omega-6 linoleic acid (LA) particularly, that’s the time to do it.

Analysis truly suggests hydrogenated LA can radically enhance your threat for COVID-19 as a result of the LA is a part of the technique the SARS COV-2 virus makes use of to contaminate your cells. I describe this in “The Type of Fat You Eat Affects Your COVID Risk.” So, you’ll need to dramatically restrict vegetable oils and different sources of LA and deal with natural entire meals.

Collectively, consuming “clear” and addressing any dietary deficiencies you’ll have (and testing is the easiest way to go about figuring out that) can go a good distance towards stopping extreme infections. As famous by Brownstein:

“It’s a must to have a robust immune system. A greater immune system goes to combat no matter you are confronted with. And look, SARS COVID-2 is right here now. There’s going to be SARS-CoV-3, CoV-4 or CoV-5 or another sickness that is on the market, so, we received to have a robust immune system.”
