Home Remedies for Cough, Natural Treatment of Cough video was created by Dr. Artour Rakhimov (NormalBreathing.com) for people with asthma, bronchitis, COPD and other breathing problems who suffer from chronic or persistent cough, including wet and dry coughing - http://www.normalbreathing.com/c/cough.php .
This natural home remedy is based on reduced breathing exercise. This exercise is also called the Emergency Procedure and it had been used to treat cough by doctor K P Buteyko and his medical colleagues who applied the Buteyko breathing method on thousands of patients with asthma, cystic fibrosis, bronchitis, COPD and many other conditions. This treatment method addresses the cause of cough: low CO2 due to chronic hyperventilation and resultant low O2 in cells - http://www.normalbreathing.com/cause-of-cough.php .
How does this exercise works? Breathing smaller amounts of air increases CO2 in airways. This leads to bronchodilation and reduced irritation of airways due to less friction and reduced speed of air movement. In addition, slower breathing increases O2 levels in body cells and stronger immune system. This long term effect of breathing normalization helps to fight infections and reduce toxic load and inflammation as well. (Inflammation is also based on tissue hypoxia.)
Note that coughing may even cause dyspnea or shortness of breath and even respiratory alkalosis with blood pH changes - http://www.normalbreathing.com/CO2-blood-pH-respiratory-alkalosis.php while breathing less air increases O2 in cells and eliminates dyspnea due to bronchodilation and other positive effects.
One can completely solve problems with persistent coughing by breathing retraining and getting increased body O2 or up to about 25 seconds for the body oxygen test. This relates to people who suffer from symptoms of asthma, bronchitis, cystic fibrosis, tuberculosis, and many other chronic health problems.
