Best Natural Cough Treatment : 3 Easy Breathing Exercises
This most natural cough treatment home remedy (simple breathing exercises) was developed and used by over 170 Russian medical doctors. The breathing exercise has been tested on thousands of patients with asthma, cystic fibrosis, and COPD with striking success. Over 90% of people can immediately (or in 1-2 minutes) reduce their bouts of coughing including problems with a persistent dry cough at night in bed or during sleep.
This technique was applied during 6 most effective clinical trials on asthma with about 90% reduction in medication in hundreds of asthmatics. (Note that coughing is the central symptom of asthma.)
Tens of medical studies proved that people with asthma, COPD, bronchitis, and many other “coughers” breathe about 2-3 times more than the medical norm. Overbreathing makes any natural cough treatment ineffective unless it is eliminated.

What are the effects of chronic heavy breathing in relation to a possible treatment of a cough? Among the known effects of chronic hyperventilation and hypocapnia (see CO2 links in resources), in relation to persistent dry cough, are:
– overstimulation or irritation of cough receptors in the tracheobronchial tree and larynx due to hypocapnia (low CO2)
– constriction of airways due to hypocapnia
– mechanical irritation of the constricted airways due to large movements of air during coughing and drying of airways
– chronic respiratory infections and inflammation due to suppression of the immune system caused by cell hypoxia and other effects caused by hyperventilation
– low oxygen content in mitochondria of cilia cells that prevent normal removal of mucus and other debris out of the lungs and airways (not only humans, cilia cells also experience chronic fatigue due to low O2 content, causing their inability to beat in unison and remove mucus and pathogens).
Obviously, these factors also worsen asthma, bronchitis, and other conditions that relate to diseases of airways or respiratory conditions. As a result, dry cough, due to too much mucus, can become wet or a moist cough.
Complete and best Natural Cough Treatment (cure)
Here are details for this best and successful natural cough treatment that can be naturally done at home. It works well for dry and wet cough as well. This YouTube video (below) is currently ranked at the top for “cough treatment” in the YouTube search.
Note that those with coughing always have less than 20 seconds for the body O2 test (CP test). That is much less than the medical norm of 40 seconds. If you retrain your breathing pattern so that you have more than a certain number (X) for the body-oxygen test result 24/7, then your chronic problems with coughing will disappear completely. This number X is provided right below here as your bonus content.

Good to hear that it helped you.
How long? People spend months, sometimes years to retrain their breathing.
The criterion is above in the bonus content number X), but getting CP 60 is a great goal to achieve.

I am working on your technique. When I get an urge to cough with force to the point that my chest tightens up. I pinch my nose and try not to cough with my nose and mouth. Immediately, I attempt to relax my body and hold my breath. I begin using the short breaths through my nose, I relax my body and exhale. I do this for about 3 to 4 minutes. The cough is subdued and I am good for a few hours. How often do I do this, before my body is retrained? Also, am I doing this correctly? If not, so I can go back and revisit your instructions. Thank you!

Yes, it can happen as a cleansing reaction that eliminates old sputum/phlegm that have been in the lungs/sinuses for a long time.

I began doing the exercises and I noticed that I began spitting up a lot of phlegm. My cough came with a force so I attempted to pinch my nose as I coughed, etc. I am determined to master your technique. However, is it normal to began to spit up or almost throw up phlegm?

Hello, I have had a cough for 40 years. I have been taking medications and nothing works. I was tested a year ago by a gastrointestinal specialist and the test concluded that I had no acid reflux, I went to the allergist/pulmonary specialist and they said I had strong lungs and no allergies or asthma. I finally went to the Ear, Nose, and Throat Specialist and I had surgery on my nose cavity and the cough stopped for 6 months but it came back. I am tired of taking cough syrup with codeine, acid blockers, Musinex DM. I am going to try your breathing exercise because I am tired of sleepless nights, etc.
