This “At Home” Remedy Knocks Out Viruses Safely and Effectively

Sara Middleton via NaturalHealth365 – Would you like to learn how to neutralize the threat of viruses?  Well, let me ask you a question: how many of you have hydrogen peroxide in your medicine cabinet right now?  This substance has been a staple at home remedy for decades for everything from whitening teeth to cleaning the kitchen and bathroom.  But, wait, I’ve got some really exciting news for you.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) also recognizes hydrogen peroxide as an effective killer of yeast, fungi, bacteria, mold, and yes – viruses, including the rhinovirus (responsible for the common cold).

And, now, there’s anecdotal evidence to suggest that hydrogen peroxide can be an effective remedy for COVID-19.  Given that the media “shies away from” (censors) alternative health news, we won’t be surprised if most people don’t hear about this. But, reports of hundreds of successful cases simply seems too promising for us to ignore.

Hydrogen Peroxide Is Already Well-Known as a Natural Antiviral Agent – Here’s How it Works

It may help to understand how hydrogen peroxide fights viral infections by first remembering a key point about this type of infection in the first place:

Viral illnesses are caused not by living organisms, but instead by pieces of genetic material that invade healthy cells – meaning the host organism’s own cells end up doing the hard work for the virus and replicate the invasive genetic material as part of the cells’ own DNA.

Technically speaking: viruses can’t be “killed” simply because viruses aren’t alive in the first place. So, what needs to be destroyed in the fight against a viral illness are the cells which become infected.

Household disinfectants, by the way, do not “kill” viruses either, but rather deactivates and destroys them by disrupting their protein encasing and/or its genetic sequence.  Of course, it’s also worthwhile in the fight against COVID-19, or any other viral infection for that matter, to strengthen the body’s immune system so that a person is less likely to get sick in the first place!

The thing is, hydrogen peroxide – which contains two hydrogen atoms and two oxygen atoms (H2O2), one more oxygen atom than a normal molecule of water (H2O) – normally isn’t harmful to healthy cells. Why?

Healthy cells have enough antioxidizing power to quash this extra oxygen atom, which by way of normal chemical reactions can become “oxidizing” (associated with cellular aging and damage) if and when an electron attaches to it.  But cells infected by viruses lose this basic defensive power and therefore are liable to being destroyed by hydrogen peroxide.

Hydrogen peroxide is super cheap and naturally occurring.  In fact, your body actually makes hydrogen peroxide as part of its natural defense mechanism! In the body, dangerous oxidized oxygen atoms are converted into hydrogen peroxide by an enzyme called superoxide dismutase, and then further broken down into oxygen and water by another enzyme called catalase…

Anecdotal Evidence Shows Hydrogen Peroxide Administered Via a Nebulizer Destroys COVID-19

Hydrogen peroxide therapy administered intravenously has been around for a few decades now, and used for the same means (largely, to fight viral infections). More recently, some doctors have been prescribing hydroxgen peroxide to their COVID-19 patients using an even easier delivery system: a nebulizer.

A nebulizer is a medical device that converts liquid medicine into fine vapor or mist. This allows patients to inhale the substance into their lungs. It’s often used for respiratory conditions like asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Here’s what’s hopeful about COVID-19: By prescribing a solution of nebulized hydrogen peroxide (typically titrated with water or normal saline), doctors are finding that the beneficial effects of the antiviral compound are not limited to their patients’ lungs, but to their whole bodies. And this potential systemic impact has huge implications for patients fighting COVID-19, since evidence now shows that the viral disease affects multiple organs and cells in the body, including those within the heart, liver, and kidneys.

Check out this video interview  with David Brownstein, MD and a patient of his who was recently diagnosed with bilateral pneumonia and tested positive for COVID-19.

By the way, here’s Dr. Brownstein suggestions on how to nebulize.

It’s never our recommendation to start a new supplement or remedy without a doctor’s supervision. And if you already have a nebulizer at home, it is not recommended to self-administer this treatment. But, if you are interested in hydrogen peroxide as a potential antiviral treatment, we encourage you to find a licensed doctor near you who can help you get started.
