Cure Cough Naturally with Easy Breathing Exercise
This fast and natural breathing exercise, “How to Cure Cough”, was developed and used by over 150 Soviet and Russian medical doctors (breathing practitioners). They applied this technique on thousands of patients, with striking success, even in cases of dry cough or at night since this breath remedy requires no meds or other tools. For most people, this fast exercise cures a cough in about 2-3 minutes. The breathing exercise is based on the fact that slow and light breathing provides more oxygen and CO2 for the body cells producing a positive effect on urge-to-cough receptors.
Coughing reduces brain and body-oxygen levels. More information about a vicious circle (when bouts of coughing cause multiple pathological effects and these effects accumulate and reinforce each other causing more coughing): Cause of a Cough.
A cough is curable (remedy)
The goal is to have small slow diaphragmatic or abdominal breathing and increase CO2 levels in airways. CO2 produces two proven physiological effects:
– CO2 pacifies irritated urge-to-cough receptors. This reduces your desire to cough.
– CO2 provides vasodilation for blood vessels (improving oxygen transport to all organs).
Therefore, start reducing your heavy breathing by breathing less air all the time, at rest, after meals (with easier eating, especially if you are overweight), and even during exercise. Take smaller or shorter inhalations using abdominal (or better, diaphragmatic) muscles, and then relax to exhale air. Or you just relax all your muscles and create air hunger to cause the same effect. The more advanced version of this exercise starts with breath holding to initiate an increase in carbon dioxide levels in your airways and body cells. Then you can make a transition to breathing slower and less 24/7, but the whole process of breathing retraining (changing your automatic breathing pattern) can take weeks or months (sometimes years).
Here is a YouTube video that provides detailed instructions on how to cure a cough fast with a natural breathing home remedy: “How to Treat Cough“. This exercise is, in fact, among the most ancient mindful meditation techniques from ancient Sanskrit books.
How to cure cough permanently
If your breathing gets heavier later, you will experience more problems with a cough. Therefore, you need to slow down your breathing back to the medical norm. When you achieve over a certain number (in seconds) for the body-oxygen test 24/7, all your coughing problems (even with a dry cough) will naturally disappear. This criterion has been tested by Soviet and Russian MDs on thousands of people with asthma, bronchitis cystic fibrosis, and many other conditions. My students also discovered that this criterion works for them too. Find out this exact number to cure your cough in your bonus content, right below here.
You need to get 25+ seconds for the body oxygen levels 24/7 to become cough-free naturally.
