For sufferers who’ve tried ‘everything’ – a unique approach to treating chronic coughing
Coughing is considered chronic if it has been present for more than 8 weeks. It is surprisingly common with up to 20% of the population experiencing chronic coughing at any one time. This is seasonally influenced and tends to be worse during the Winter months as a residual symptom of viral infections. Chronic coughing is, in fact, the most common reason why an adult attends a Doctor’s clinic.
Most commonly, the cause of chronic coughing can be attributed to a coughing variant of asthma, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), or post-nasal drip associated with hayfever or other allergies. While treatments are available to help chronic coughing, for some people coughing can continue unabated and persist for even years. In fact, up to 42% of chronic coughers’ symptoms persist despite attempts by Family Doctors or Respiratory Physicians to treat them. Persistent coughing despite treatment can be due to the cough being idiopathic (coughing with no diagnosed cause) or symptoms resistant to normally successful treatments.
Chronic coughing can have a significant detrimental effect on the sufferer’s quality of life. It is for these people who have failed with conventional treatments that this unique approach to treating a chronic cough will be potentially most appropriate.
Chronic coughing is an ailment that needs to be investigated by appropriate medical practitioners and, in particular, Family Doctors, Respiratory Physicians or Ear, Nose and Throat Specialists because of the potential for serious underlying causes or long-term detrimental effects. This point cannot be stressed enough, yet for those sufferers who have tried everything without benefit, thankfully, there is something else you can try:
