This is a shortened article of Dr. Mercola, follow this link for the full article – and Then I Deon the owner of Bound-Oxygen then explains what makes our products special, so I do not claim to be objective, as I am a true believer and user of the Bound-Oxygen Product range. This is my disclaimer before we start – and I thank Dr. Mercola for this very informative article on How Nebulized Peroxide Helps Against Respiratory Infections.
In the case of respiratory infections, the nebulizer has the added advantage of delivering the hydrogen peroxide right to the areas most affected by respiratory viruses — your sinuses, throat, bronchial tract and lungs.
How Hydrogen Peroxide Works
To inactivate viruses with hydrogen peroxide, all you need is a nebulizer with a face mask that covers your mouth and nose that emits a fine mist, and food grade hydrogen peroxide that is diluted to 1% or less if you have any irritation.
The microscopic mist, similar to smoke or vapor, can be comfortably inhaled deep into your nostrils, sinuses and lungs.
Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) consists of a water molecule (H2O) with an extra oxygen atom, and it is the additional oxygen atom that allows it to inactivate viral pathogens. Viruses are not “alive” per se. They need a live host in which they can infect live cells that then replicate the viral DNA and RNA. Once a cell is infected, newly replicated viruses exit the cell and move on to the next cell to duplicate the process.
So, when we talk about “killing” a virus, we’re really talking about inactivating it by breaking down its structure. This is how mouthwash can inactivate viruses, and why soap works so well. Coronaviruses are held together by a lipid (fatty) coating. Soap, being amphipathic10 — meaning it can dissolve most molecules — dissolves this fat membrane, causing the virus to fall apart and become harmless.
Hydrogen peroxide works in a similar way. Some of your immune cells actually produce hydrogen peroxide to destroy pathogens. By killing the infected cell, viral reproduction is stopped. So, hydrogen peroxide therapy is in essence only aiding your immune cells to perform their natural function more effectively.
Hydrogen peroxide is also a key redox signalling agent that creates oxidative eustress, oxidative stress or oxidative distress, oxidative eustress denotes an oxidative challenge that has positive or beneficial effects and is essential in redox signalling you’re already presenting with runny nose or sore throat, Levy recommends using the nebulizer for 10 to 15 minutes four times a day until your symptoms are relieved.
You can also use nebulized hydrogen peroxide for prevention and maintenance, which may be advisable during flu season, or while the COVID-19 pandemic is in full swing.

Combining the use of Bound-Oxygen “BO2 Throat Spray” with using a nebulizer is a very convenient alternative as it is very easy to carry the 10ml or 30ml bottles with you, then use it immediately if you feel your health has been compromised (sneezed or coughed on). Fast action is the key as it is much easier to kill a few bacteria/viruses than after it has been multiplying.
The Bound-Oxygen “BO2 Throat Spray” works well in the nebulizer, that is for up to 30min at a time. If you want to go longer, then I suggest you mix in a little water (Reverse Osmosis – water as in bottled water) half/half for a 0.5% this works very well. The best practice if you are really sick, is to alternate, so first the “BO2 Throat Spray” for 30 minutes, then the “BO2 Nasal Spray” for a few hours, then repeat!
“As it is a completely non-toxic therapy, nebulization can be administered as often as desired. If done on a daily basis at least once, a very positive impact on bowel and gut function will often be realized as killing the chronic pathogen colonization present in most noses and throats stops the 24/7 swallowing of these pathogens and their associated toxins.
If daily prevention is not a practical option, the effectiveness of this treatment is optimized when somebody sneezes in your face or you finally get off of the plane after a trans-Atlantic flight. Don’t wait for initial symptoms. Just nebulize at your first opportunity.”

May Helps with Stopping to Smoke
My theory is the reason it is so difficult to stop smoking/vaping is the sugar content of cigarettes. This then feeds the fungi’s in your lungs, when these fungi’s get hungry they tell you to smoke (this is the short explanation – read more here). This is why vaping with Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) is so helpful as it kills the fungi in the lungs, so when you feel the craving to smoke, nebulize a 1% Bound-Oxygen “BO2 Throat Spray” instead. This makes stopping smoking much easier, or it at least made it much easier for me.
May helps to bring up the Oxygen Levels in your Blood (%SpO2)
With COVID-19 one of the scary things that can happen is the virus can go into your lungs, this will have the result that the Oxygen (%SpO2) goes down to dangerous low levels that can be catastrophic!
Your reading with the Pulse Oximeter (Costs about R500 – R1200) should be 94 or above. If your levels are below 90 it is reason to seek medical help. My suggestion is that every household should have one of these meters available at all times as it just might save you from calamity. Early warning!
When I start my nebulize session my %SpO2 percentage oxygen in my blood rise quickly – within about 2 minutes – to 98/99 then it fluctuates but stays at this level for about an hour after the end of a 30 minute nebulizer session.
So, if you have a nebulizer please test this for yourself, and comment so as to share it with more people.
In times to come I think using a nebuliser will become a common practise, the following is my suggestions:
- When arriving at the Doctor/Dentist – while waiting – or having to arrive 15 minutes earlier, so that the client can nebulize first.
- Before leaving the house in the morning and again when arriving back, so keep everyone safe in the household including yourself.
- When arriving at the office/work, and before going into meetings, remember if you have done it before in the same day even 5 minutes will help.
My recommendation will be to go buy a Nebulizer, every household and business should have at least one. You also get portable Nebulizers and so they can be taken with you wherever you go. Most bigger Pharmacies stock them and they cost between R600 – R3000. I just use one of the cheap ones and it works very well.
A Nebulizer also just use tiny amounts of Hydrogen Peroxide 1% so 10ml will last for hours, so very economical.
What to do when someone sneezed or coughed directly on you?
Immediately spray the Bound-Oxygen “BO2 Throat Spray” in your mouth, hold it, mixing it with saliva and swallow two or three minutes later.
If you don’t have our product then use other Mouthwash products, as they should also have a chance of helping.
And secondly use the Bound-Oxygen “BO2 Nasal Spray” and thirdly use the Throat Spray as a liquid in a nebulizer (Article Below).
