You may have heard about glutathione’s beneficial effect on the immune system, but did you know that you can inhale it directly into your lungs and receive it’s beneficial healing action? Likewise, you can use food-grade hydrogen peroxide to directly affect healing of lung issues from viral flu bugs, to pneumonia, COPD and asthma. Personally, I have used both substances in a nebulizer and had positive experiences with each of them. Let’s start with glutathione…

Inhaled Glutathione via a Nebulizer

Glutathione reduces oxidative stress, decreases inflammation, and modulates T cell responses in lungs. Hence it is an excellent natural substance for treating conditions of lung inflammation, pneumonia, emphysema, cystic fibrosis, etc. and it can also work well with asthma.

I used it myself following a bout of severe pneumonia, where it hurt to take a deep breath or inflate my left lung fully. I felt a marked difference after the first session, but after a while, it wore off. However, as the treatments continued, the expansion in my lungs remained for longer and longer periods. You will also get the overall boost to your immune system by inhaling it through your lungs as well.

At one point, I had a bout of the flu and having had pneumonia, I didn’t want to take any chances. So I went to my naturopath for intravenous vitamin C, B complex and magnesium, along with 20 minutes of inhaled glutathione. My cough was gone the next day.

A few years later, my son had a cough that just wasn’t clearing up. By that time I had purchased my own nebulizer, so I went to my Naturopath and bought a vial of glutathione (needs to be kept refrigerated) with a syringe to measure the dosage for the nebulizer. Again, after a week of daily treatments, my son’s lungs were clear.

Here are some good articles giving some solid scientific research behind this effective natural therapy:
