  A Two Cent Cure (?) for the Common Cold

“that really works  - at least 80% of the time!”

Copyright 2005 By Darrell Stoddard

A couple of years ago I read about a way to prevent the common cold on the “” 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 by viruses.

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, It should 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 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.

If 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 infections.

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 reported to [email protected]
