A couple of years ago I read about a way to prevent
the common cold on the “www.mercola.com” web site. I
tried it and it worked so remarkably well that I have prevented almost
all colds and flu in family members and myself for more than two years! Before
trying the 2-cent prevention treatment below, I caught every cold that came
around. I was in bed for four or five days several times a year and it seems
I had a cold all of the time. Now I am completely free of colds and flu
In 1928 Richard Simmons, M.D. hypothesized that
colds and flu virus enter through the ear canal. According to Dr. Simmons,
contrary to what you may think or have been taught about how you catch a
cold or the flu, there is only one way that you can catch either, and that's
via the ear canal - not through the eyes or nose or mouth as most have believed.
Once the cold and flu virus have entered the inner-ear, they begin their
breeding process, and from there have access to every avenue throughout our
body to infect and make us sick.
In 1938 German researchers had great success using
hydrogen peroxide in the ear to treat colds and flu.
Then in the 1940’s antibiotics were discovered and were
so successful in treating bacterial infections like pneumonia or strep throat
that people forgot all about treating colds and flu with hydrogen peroxide.
We now know that antibiotics will do nothing for colds or flu that are caused
It is a medical fact that antibiotics do nothing
for the flu or a cold caused by a virus. People in the know, however, for
many years have been using hydrogen peroxide to attack the influenza virus
and the common cold virus where they begin their breeding process in the
inner-ear (middle) and not where they have already spread. It is important
to begin treatment as soon as symptoms appear – with one caution,
not be done if you have a perforated eardrum!
We have found remarkable results in preventing
the flu or a cold by administering a few drops of 3% hydrogen peroxide (h2o2)
into each ear. The h2o2 starts working within seconds to kill the cold or
flu virus. You will probably feel nothing or
there may be some bubbling or mild stinging. Wait a minute or so and then
drain onto a tissue and repeat in the other ear. A bottle of hydrogen peroxide
in 3% solution is available at any drug store for about a dollar.
If you begin at the first sign of catching a cold
usually only one procedure is necessary. If you don’t begin at the first
sign of catching a cold, you may need to repeat the process two or more times
at one or two hour intervals. (The above information was paraphrased from
the mercola.com website which I highly recommend.)
An easy way to accomplish the above task is to
pour about 2/3 of a capful of hydrogen peroxide (which is enough for both
ears) into the lid and then while tipping the head to one side, pour that
ear full. Leave it for a minute or two. Then tip your head to the other side
and repeat in the other ear. After emptying both ears, I then go one step
further by gargling with a hydrogen peroxide dilution of two parts water and
1 part hydrogen peroxide (recommended by my Periodontist).
Gargling with the above hydrogen peroxide dilution will stop almost immediately
a trench mouth infection, is wonderful for a sore throat, and is even recommended
as a teeth whitener. Hydrogen peroxide
should not be swallowed. For this reason,
you should never allow a child to gargle with hydrogen peroxide.
you want go one-step further, just ask and we will send a nasal spray bottle
with your next order. It can be used to spray hydrogen peroxide into the
ear and/or the nasal passages. By also treating the nasal passages, you can
make the treatment even more effective.
We believe from experience
that almost all colds and flu can be stopped with the help of hydrogen
peroxide to kill the virus and bacteria at the source of infection. For less
than a dollar, you can stop an unlimited number of colds, the flu, and other
The results of
this treatment are so impressive that if anyone could patent it, they would
become wealthy. Because no money can be made from such a treatment,
no one will ever pay for or conduct a scientific study.
We therefore propose our own pragmatic, unscientific study. Don’t
believe even the possibility of this being true until you have put it to
a test. Then share your experience with others and with us. Results may be
