Lung Damage Treatment

Posted by M (Alexandria, Virginia) on 11/28/2007

A woman I have become friends with recently has horrible lung damage from a toxic spray used on a restaurant grill where she worked. She is on oxygen 24 hours a day and now in the hospital with pneumonia. I don't believe she even has the lung strength to get the nasal spray down into her lung area. Could using a nebulizer with Hydrogen Peroxide 3% be a better option for her? If so, should she put it in the nebulizer at full 3% strength (meaning not diluted with water)? Also, how many times a day should she use the nebulizer? She is desperate for help. Please respond ASAP

It would be recommended for her to use the H202 3% in a nebulizer? In case of a serious pneumonia, I prefer a 3% H2O2, in case if a pneumonia is a mild one, then I think 1% H2O2 is sufficient. However, I prefer to start with a strong one such as 3%, and if there is a problem, I reduce the strenght by 1/2, since pneumonia is fairly agressive and quite difficult to kill. Can the Colloidal Silver be used full strength in the nebulizer and which brand do you recommend or type of Colloidal Silver? A colloidal silver can be used in full strenght. But I prefer to put in 50% colloidal silver in a 50% 3% H2O2 (which is about 1.5% H2O2 after the mixing. This is one possibility. Why I think colloidal silver is better is that I have remember someone coughing up black sooth (possibly from emphysema) and has helped clear up the lungs. However, a way to liquefy the mucus is to use N Acetyl Cysteine 500 mg. may help clear up the breathing as the mucus is now less sticky. It must be noted that certain diets can lead to worsening of the condition, such as cured meats and fried foods. In this case a remedy using 2 tablespoon of lime or lemon juice, plus 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda in 1/2 glass of water, should help the body increase the oxygen as well as 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda in one glass of water with 3-5 drops of 3% H2O2, taken once in the morning also. Whenever the body is more alkaline, the blood will increase in oxygen, require less need for oxygen. Vitamin E also helps reduce the need for oxygen also, and the dose is either 200 or 400 i.u. Finally slow deep breathing exercise will also reduce the need for excessive oxygen too. The proper way to breathe is to use the stomach to pull in and pull out as the lungs breathes. Children seem to have the correct instant from breathing using their stomach, and that is the proper method. Therefore, in certain emphysema if fungus is indicated, H2O2 nebulizer may help. At least it kills off the pathogens which block the breathing passages. If there is any more thing to be done, I think taking some allantoin rich food such as aloe vera and perhaps iodine foot painting (or iodine drops used as a mouthwash in 1/2 glass of water) may also help some regeneration of the lungs, or at least increase the immunity.
