Nebulized Peroxide — A Simple Treatment for COVID-19


Dr. Mercola Interviews the Experts

This article is a part of a weekly collection during which Dr. Mercola interviews numerous specialists on a wide range of well being points. To see extra professional 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 change 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 treatments, 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 challenge of Science, Public Health Policy, and the Law.1 All sufferers survived.

Nebulized Peroxide and Iodine

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

“[Among] our [COVID-19] patients, we’ve had no deaths,” he says. “We’ve had a few hospitalizations, however a lot smaller than ought to 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 sicknesses.

A affected person I referred to as over the weekend instructed me ‘There are two things out of what you gave me that I could tell really made me feel better.’ I gave him the entire protocol of oral vitamin A, C, D and iodine and nebulized peroxide and iodine.

He stated, ‘I forgot to use the iodine the first day or two. When you asked me about it, I re-added it back in orally. That made the difference. My mucus thinned out, my breathing was better. I forgot to put the iodine in the nebulizer [too], and [when] I did both at the same time — the oral iodine and the nebulized hydrogen peroxide with iodine — everything cleared up …’

His respiratory was 80%, 90% higher shortly after the primary or second dose of iodine. He’s one other success story that we have had, which is supporting individuals’s immune methods 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 unwell with flu-like sicknesses reminiscent of COVID-19.”

Early Treatment Virtually Eliminates Long-Haul Syndrome

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

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

“The enormous catastrophe of COVID-19 that historical past will inform sometime is the powers that be telling us there’s nothing we will do. Just 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. Maybe the loss of life 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 stated ‘There’s nothing you can offer’ and ‘Don’t offer anything because it hasn’t gone through randomized, double blind, placebo controlled studies … and if doctors do it, we’re going to censor them and hold them accountable.’ That’s been the largest catastrophe of this complete factor,” Brownstein says.

Most Are Deficient in Basic Immune Boosters

It’s essential 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 medication or vaccines. Brownstein’s use of dietary dietary supplements and different immune boosting methods goes again many years, effectively earlier than there have been antiviral medication obtainable.

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 methods. About 90% of his sufferers are additionally poor in vitamin D, which is one other essential immune regulator. You have vitamin D receptors in each your innate and adaptive immune methods. Vitamin D deficiency can be related to sepsis.

Many are additionally poor in vitamin A. 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, ensure you’re taking emulsified vitamin A.

“Beta carotene does not provide the immune system affects vitamin A does,” Brownstein says. “Vitamin A helps minimize cytokine storm. It helps minimize the inflammatory factors … It helps to lower TNF alpha. And the white blood cells need vitamin A as an integral part of their functioning. So, it helps both the innate and the adaptive immune systems fight back.”

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.

“Those were the first three things I did,” he says. “What I discovered was that when individuals bought the flu or flu-like sickness, and so they began taking these three issues instantly they might get higher in 24 hours. It was superb.

A few years later, I realized 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 common dose of iodine over time 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. People appreciated 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. As a consequence, he added that into his antiviral routine as effectively.

If you’re utilizing 5% Lugol’s resolution, merely add one drop to your nebulizer after filling it with the diluted peroxide resolution. If you’re utilizing 2% Lugol’s resolution, which is accessible over-the-counter, add two drops. Of course, this ought to be carried out with a physician’s session.

IV Peroxide, Vitamin C and Ozone

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

“I started using IV and nebulized peroxide, and I mixed the nebulized peroxide with a nebulized iodine in one solution. For people developing lung problems, pneumonia, lung cancer or COPD, if they were coughing, couldn’t breathe, if they were wheezing and things like that, adding nebulized hydrogen peroxide at 0.04% dilution and one drop of 5% Lugol’s solution, which supplies 6.25 milligrams of iodine, really helped a lot of people out.”

Eventually, 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 that primary antiviral protocol, discovering it labored simply as effectively towards SARS-CoV-2 an infection as another viral an infection.

During the primary wave in March and April 2020, not one of the workers that continued working fell unwell. Eventually, one workers member bought sick, triggering a cascade of an infection among the many workers. All had been handled and all efficiently recovered. “Now we have a herd immunity office,” Brownstein says. “Eighty-seven percent of us have antibodies to COVID-19.”

Nebulized Peroxide Basics

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

Keep in thoughts that the peroxide must be diluted with saline. I like to recommend diluting it all the way 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 pre-dilute to 0.04%, it’ll keep potent for about three months when saved refrigerated. If you do a 0.1% dilution, it could keep potent a bit longer.

If you don’t have entry to saline, you can make your individual 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 will provide you with a 0.9% saline resolution, which is concerning the focus present in physique fluids. Using that saline, you’ll then dilute the hydrogen peroxide as described on this chart.

Do not combine the peroxide with straight distilled water, as this might doubtlessly trigger physiological harm. You want the salt in there. You can, nonetheless, make your saline utilizing distilled water.

Also, to optimize your advantages, be sure you purchase an electrical tabletop jet nebulizer. The battery-driven handheld variations merely aren’t as efficient. As Brownstein factors out, in almost all circumstances the place sufferers weren’t getting higher, they had been utilizing a handheld nebulizer. Once they bought 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, in an effort to deal with your self or your loved ones at a second’s discover. You don’t wish to wait days for your order to reach earlier than beginning therapy.

Mechanisms of Action

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

“It’s an oxidative remedy. We’re form of all conditioned that antioxidants are good and oxidants are unhealthy, however actually, you want a stability of them. It’s referred to as a redox. It’s like a teeter-totter. You want oxidants to stimulate the breakdown of previous cells, previous and injured tissue, and also you want antioxidants to stimulate the restore of these previous cells and previous tissues.

So, the oxidants do have a profit. They stimulate the redox pathway, and what I feel 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.

When you progress electrons round you can also make power molecules, ATP, you possibly can stimulate restore cells and STEM cells and get issues shifting once more. The human physique produces an amazing quantity of peroxide. It’s 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?

Using small quantities of peroxide, both IV or nebulizer, solely has a very good scientific impact. I don’t see unfavourable results with it. [Vitamin C also] stimulates peroxide manufacturing if you use excessive doses.”

Aside from having antiviral results, nebulizing peroxide may even enhance oxygenation and respiratory usually, and could be very useful for people who smoke. This is smart as peroxide breaks down in your physique into water and oxygen. Brownstein believes it additionally has a detoxifying impact on the lungs.

It’s attention-grabbing to notice that Brownstein and his colleagues by no means used any of the drug regimens that many medical doctors swear by, reminiscent of ivermectin or hydroxychloroquine.

While he has regarded on the scientific literature, noting there’s ample proof to assist 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 convey their nebulizer, correctly diluted hydrogen peroxide and iodine. That means, they’ll nebulize after they get to their vacation spot, which ought to successfully kill off any pathogens they could have been uncovered to throughout their travels.

Remedies to Avoid

Aside from understanding what to take and what to do, it’s additionally essential to know what to keep away from. Examples embody Tamiflu which, when it really works, might scale back symptomatic sickness for solely a few hours at greatest, whereas having vital aspect impact dangers. Brownstein additionally advises towards Tylenol and different antipyretics reminiscent of aspirin and ibuprofen. The cause for it’s because you do not wish to suppress your physique’s skill to mount a fever. Brownstein explains:

“Fever is there for a function. We had been designed completely to outlive viral sicknesses, to stay to previous age and have a very good mind operate into previous age. If we assist the physique, if we give it the fundamental vitamins it wants and the fundamental uncooked supplies and assist that it wants, it might probably do actually cool issues.

The downside is, within the poisonous world we stay in, enzymes are poisoned and receptors are blocked. We take all these medication that poison enzymes and block receptors. Fever is your pal and the fever’s there for a cause. Bacteria and viruses do not like a raised physique temperature. That’s why the physique raises the temperature throughout an an infection.

It’s making an attempt to make the atmosphere inhospitable for a pathogen. So, the worst factor you are able to do in that state of affairs, until the fever is simply too excessive — a fever over 103 levels Fahrenheit, perhaps 103.5 104 F., could cause mind issues and seizures and you’ll die from a fever.

But most individuals do not get fevers up that top after they’re sick. They get low grade fevers, 99.5 to perhaps 101, 102 F. I inform sufferers, do not take something for that. Just assist the physique and let it do its factor.

You can 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 tub with Epsom salts was very useful for my COVID sufferers, and it has been useful for different viral sicknesses over time.”

The Problem With Tylenol

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

“Tylenol also has a very narrow window of toxicity, meaning that if you go over the recommended dose on the label, but not by much, you can get Tylenol toxicity. The liver starts to break down and 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 some extent of it with COVID-19, as a result of they wanted glutathione manufacturing.

And so far as Motrin and ibuprofen and aspirin goes, at the start of the disaster, I noticed three sufferers who instructed me after they took the primary dose of Motrin for a fever, they collapsed, their system went to hell, they’d bother respiratory. Everything bought 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 feel it is extra [because] you are blocking the physique’s pure fever response and it is simply not a very good factor to do.”

Back to Basics

Brownstein stresses that it’s not nearly taking sure dietary supplements or nebulizing if you’re unwell. You additionally want to wash up your weight-reduction plan. The greatest therapy is prevention, which you’ll obtain by means of correct weight-reduction plan and a wholesome life-style every day.

That stated, if you do get acutely unwell, for those who haven’t already eradicated processed meals, that are loaded with sugar and dangerous fat, omega-6 linoleic acid (LA) specifically, that’s the time to do it.

Research truly suggests hydrogenated LA can radically enhance your danger 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 wish to dramatically restrict vegetable oils and different sources of LA and concentrate on natural complete meals.

Together, consuming “clean” and addressing any dietary deficiencies you could have (and testing is one of the best ways to go about figuring out that) can go a good distance towards stopping extreme infections. As famous by Brownstein:

“You have to have a strong immune system. A better immune system is going to fight whatever you’re confronted with. And look, SARS COVID-2 is here now. There’s going to be SARS-CoV-3, CoV-4 or CoV-5 or some other illness that’s out there, so, we got to have a strong immune system.”
