I had been attempting to see a specialist who treats patients with blood chelation therapy and hydrogen peroxide injection. In the meantime, I engaged in some of the therapies written about here. I will eventually obtain peroxide treatments with the specialist here to follow up.
I chose footbaths, since I have no tub in my apartment. I really took to the footbaths and do it now as a matter of course. I also tried inhaling when I came down with the flu, a hazard at my workplace. The inhaling method I found to be very harsh, so I limited it to only enough to get over having the flu, which was in a matter of 48-60 hours. I do keep a nasal spray bottle on hand in case there is no other source available and inhale just prior to taking a shower.
This was the most challenging virus I had picked up in a long time. I was aiming overall at defeating post viral fatigue syndrome and the effects of periodontal work.
The fatigue didn't come back as strongly, so I believe the effect of the footbaths is according to remedy. The night sweats that accompany chronic fatigue are not as prominent. I have enough energy now to take care of basic chores without putting them off. I also attempted to drink some tea with peroxide according to recommendation, but will not repeat that, since I found it harsh.
Needless to say taking baths and footbaths and occasional baths on the road with 3% peroxide produced a lot of phlegm initially, and one day black phlegm came out. Footbaths I started out with 500ml and now use 1l. in hot water with epsom salts and tea tree oil. Its a pleasant way to start the day prior to taking a shower. In a bath when on the road I usually buy 6 bottles of 500ml. in a nearby pharmacy and use it as part of the routine.
Other improvements are better complexion and improved varicose veins in my feet. I also have some improvement in cardiovascular function and seem to breathe easier.
I am very concerned that the medical profession has no clue about peroxide and its possible use in properly treating fatigue syndrome, since the alternative is to have you assessed incorrectly as depressed or subjected to treatments which have no effect.
I am hoping that peroxide therapy will help me return to working out and enjoying life a little more.
Here is a story recently recounted in the NY Times. I am certain that peroxide therapy will help this condition:
My wife has had breathing problems for years (the dr`s say it is from smoking... not true, it has bubbles in the phlem they pop when you crush them.) I gave her mouth to mouth as her lungs were stuck together and she was suffocating and could not keep from passing out. As she exhaled I breathed some of her air in to my lungs . I have this now, I wheeze when I sleep and have become very tired. I also cough very hard, three times of taking antibiotics has not stopped it. I tried your hp by inhaling the fumes from a bottle by placing on my lips because I had no spray bottle. It is also mixed with iodine as I can smell it. It stopped the coughing & phlem in less than 18 hours. I and my wife are heavy smokers. It increased my lungs capacity's to process air. I have recovered lots of the energy I did not know I had lost. Today is the second day after trying this. Yesterday I could do more reps of the exercises than before. Hydrogen peroxide works amazingly well, I am impressed. There is no storm today, so we will buy the real thing. Hydrogen peroxide and a nasal spray bottle. I and my wife are feeling much better lots of energy. I would like to thank all the people here for you information. This will get rid of this virus of that, I have no fear. Thanks a lot to you all.
After having great luck with inhaling drug store h202 for viruses and flu in January and February, I switched from 3% to a dilution of food grade. I wasn't sure about how many drops to add to the inhaler, so I only added 2 drops to filtered water. This wasn't enough! After a couple of days, I felt the beginnings of a virus, which wouldn't have been the case if I had enough oxygen (ie., h202) in my blood. I quickly dumped out the food grade and added back the 3% and pumped 6 times. The viral symptoms disappeared within about 3 hours. It happened fast because I don't think the virus had been in my system very long. I am going to stick to the 3% for viruses and occasionally use the food grade to drink. Since Bill Munro has used the 3% for 12 years, I am not so worried about the additives!
I also got the sore throat and extreme fatigue the past 2 weeks. Last Friday I started to inhale the peroxide -- 6 pumps every 2 hours. Within 36 hours I was all better.
I have been struggling to get over the flu for the past 6 weeks. I have had a recurring sore throat, but mainly I have been unusually exhausted! I tried everything on your flu page! Nothing helped: vitamin C, zinc, apple cider vinegar, garlic, oregano oil. Finally went to the doc and he prescribed antibiotics (sometimes helps with a virus). Did not do a thing! Anyway, came across Bill's recommendation to inhale peroxide. I have put peroxide in my ear for years (didn't help this time), but never inhaled it. Figured it couldn't hurt! Started to inhale the peroxide, per Bill's instructions and it's now been 36 hours. I am not yet back to 100% but feel so much better! I have tons of energy. When I feel a wave of fatigue hit (the virus trying to come back?), I take more peroxide and the tiredness goes away immediately. Interesting stuff!
I ran out of my iron supplement about a month ago and didn't bother to buy more. Sure enough 2 days after I finished my period, I got a nasty virus. Finally I put two and two together and realized how important iron is to the immune system. The only time I EVER get sick is right after my period finishes! I'd be curious to know if this happens to other women at the end of their periods. Anyways, my message is for women - if you are anemic or borderline anemic, don't forget to take iron!
I had horrible flu like symptoms that lingered for over a week. Figured I would try eating whole lemons as they have natural antibiotic properties. The day after I started eating them I felt the virus lifting from me! Maybe a coincidence, but I am giving the lemons credit on this one! Good to feel human again.

Well, a couple of my little ones have chicken pox. So far it is pretty mild but I am trying to be pro-active with Elderberry Syrup to help their immune systems and extra virgin coconut oil as a natural anti-viral. I became convinced of what a powerful antiviral coconut oil is when my son had mono and coconut oil caused him to turn the corner in 36 hours, after weeks of sickness. However, one of my little ones doesn't like coconut oil. So, I made some "anti-viral candy" to get it into little ones. And, of course, you don't have to be sick to enjoy this! Here is the recipe:
Antiviral Chocolate-Peppermint Candy Recipe
(or, How to get Coconut Oil into the reluctant consumer.)
1 cup extra virgin coconut oil (the stuff that smells like coconut oil)
3 - 4 Tablespoons Raw Honey
1/3 - 1/2 cup raw cacao powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
2 drops peppermint essential oil
Melt coconut oil, if it is not already melted. (Not in the microwave.) Mix in remaining ingredients. Stir in remaining ingredients. Line an 8x8 pan with wax paper. Pour mixture in. Place in refrigerator for 2 hours. Remove from refrigerator. Carefully remove wax paper. Cut into 32 squares. Store in the refrigerator.
Each square will be 1 and 1 half teaspoons of coconut oil. For an adult, I try to give 3 Tablespoons of coconut oil a day, if I am using it for its antiviral properties. For a child, I am giving 1 and a half teaspoons three times a day.
A bonus is that raw honey also has anti-viral properties and cacao powder is nutritious, too.
You can skip the peppermint if you do not care for it.

I just wanted to share my story. For almost a month now I have had a "bug".I immediately started my regular treatments of acv, oil of oregano, clove oil, taking more vit.c and e. Two weeks into was feeling better then on Sunday it hit me like a brick again.To the point of not being able to move off the couch. Extreme chills, loss of appetite and just fatigued. Out of utter desperation I tried the h2o2 inhalation which made me vomit. Stopped doing that. I was afraid that I had pneumonia at this point. I have always warned people on the use of antibiotics and haven't used them myself for close to ten years.I have always been able to heal myself.I am ashamed to say the my brother in law gave me his antibiotics and I am on day two of taking them. I feel defeated and have gone against everything I believe in. Not sure if these stupid things will work since I don't know what I have and I don't go to doctors. I just needed to vent this. Has anyone else gone through this? My sense of guilt is huge.

Have had a virus or something for 2 months. It seems to be getting better but the phlem continues to build up in my lower throat. I'm continually clearing my throat and coughing. I take a good muti-vitamin and 50 mg of d3, echinecea, 550 mg of c. Any reccommendations?

I have been oil pulling 2x/day 4-5x/wk since Jun 14, 2010 and began using castor oil packs on my stomach Jul 19, 2010. I plan on using 3-5x/wk.
Does anyone have any experience with this? I am looking to rid my body of a virus as well as remove toxins. I am curious how long I should continue with this. I feel my symptoms are slightly worse but read this is to be expected. Should I continue? Should I choose one method only? Would love any suggestions people may have.
I had a virus for two days w/ low fever, sinus congestion, headache, achiness, and tiredness. I tried several remedies, like alkalizing with lemon juice and baking soda and also oil of oregano. I couldn't tell much difference. Then I tried 2 cups of Pau D'Arco tea, one in the afternoon & another that evening. I immediately felt somewhat better. The next morning, I felt a lot better - more energy, no headache, and just a runny nose. I drank 3 large cups throughout the day (using same teabag) and felt 100% better by evening. Even my nose stopped running. Amazing!
Very large doses of Pau D'arco tea (2 bowlfulls a day) for about a month. 5 -10 grams mixed ascorbates (acid neutralized vitamin C, aka zinc ascorbate, calcium ascorbate, magnesium ascorbate, potassium ascorbate and a very small amount of sodium ascorbate to provide sodium ions to help with absorption ) to bowel tolerance + Fresh lime juice every day. This combo suppresses CMV. I had brain fog and irritations in my mouth and GI tract. CMV is a virus in the same family as Chicken Pox and Herpes.
If you use Vitamin C, use acid neutral vitamin C or else you'll encounter problems from the acidity of the vitamin C. Sugar in your blood or intestine slows absorption, so take on an empty stomach or before exercising. Dosage is variable. Some people need 10 grams a day. Some people only need 500mg a day. Larger doses (above a gram or so) need to be divided into several smaller doses and taken with large amounts of water throughout the day.
Drinking alcohol depletes glutathione in the liver and increases the need for vitamin C.
After 2 years of symptons, I gave my friend 1000 mgs daily of Resveratrol. first time in 2 years no symptons. First time in 6 months she can work full time with No side effects. Reserch at University of Rome 2 years ago on rats showes Resveratrol kills all Virus. This is only a week old result so far."
EC: We wrote and asked John for more information:
11/29/2007: Joh replied, "I'm not sure what her clinical condition was at the time. This is in Central America, It took her two years before a diagnoses was made. She had been to sick to work, and losing weight from not being able to keep food down. lots of problems with her skin, and other organs. I found an Internet site that reported on research done at the University of Rome on Rats that was successful in controlling virus in rats by using resveratrol. I had successfully controlled my Pancreatic cancer taking resveratrol, so I gave her daily doses of 500mgs.
All of her symptoms reversed 100% in just 3 or 4 days. She's back working full time. Now, The article I found was published in the Journal of infectious Diseases, and by CIDRAP (University of Minnesota) . More importantly, all articles on the benefits received by resveratrol can be found at www.resveratrolnews.com.
I'm not necessarily interested in having anything published, and I'm sorry I can't be more informative. I'm just hoping more information might become available on the potential benefits by taking resveratrol to those with Lupus. Their are almost no side effects, and it is very affordable. Now research is being done on its potential benefits for herpes, Alzheimer's, cardiovascular problems, cancer prevention, and treatment, and infectious disease. Could it be that Lupus could be added to that list. Thanks for your time. John
