Has anyone tried Hydrogen Peroxide Food Grade for IPF?

My dad can't even walk from room to room without collapsing because his IPF is getting so bad.

I've done so much research in hopes for way to help him.

But options are limited because he is on Coumadin, a blood thinner.

I've come across the idea that Hydrogen Peroxide 35% Food Grade can help improve his breathing abilities and maybe reduce the scarring of the lungs.

Anyone with information on this, please let me know.

Much appreciated,

Hi Christina.

Why dont you give the blf nurses a call on Monday, there could be some other medication he could have to ease things a little as sometimes we are not getting the right thing.

The number is 03000 030 555


Advocates of ingesting, injecting or inhaling hydrogen peroxide (diluted down to 3%) for a variety of ailments are all over the web. I suggest you ignore their siren song . . .

P. 350. Quote:

'. . . Excessive oxidative stress in the lower respiratory tract, a characteristic feature of IPF, may contribute to lung injury, and initial fibroblast activation. It has long been known that macrophages spontaneously release exaggerated amounts of hydrogen peroxide in patients with IPF, which acts with increased myeloperoxidase levels to cause increased epithelial cell injury. Oxidant activity may also play an important role in progression of advanced disease. . . .'


Peroxide is made by iodine in ya glands and to much iodine peroxide can be toxix

Her is drug you want to get of doctor HE should get it as lung function is in keeping with perscibing criteria

Its called " nintedanib "


One of the so called medical experts has been shown to be a not very good Dentist and written loads of "expert" papers on other not proven treatments.

I would not go near it.

I used a very diluted form to kill or cure my tropical fish they were all scarred and it was highly diluted.

Be Well stay clear.

Thank you everyone. IPF stands for Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis


Not heard of that, but know that natural salt, not white processed table salt which is so high in sodium, is great. Few grains of Himaladian (sorry cant spell it) pink salt is excellent. Also good for you too. Processed table salt is heated to such a high degree that all it is is sodium so we crave more to get the good stuff out of it which has been removed anyway!


i spent $20 for a bottle and it didn,t do anything. save your money.
