What is cough?
A cough is your body’s way of responding when something irritates your throat or airways. It can be the result of a respiratory tract infection such as the common cold, acute bronchitis, pneumonia, pertussis, or tuberculosis.
New strategy to treat cough
Cough occurs only because of an irritant reaction in the respiratory tract. This is because of entry of allergens/toxins or foreign particles that invade the blood stream and start circulating throughout the body.
Cough can be cleared at its root cause by detoxifying the blood (i.e) eliminating the unwanted allergic irritants by purifying the blood. Hence the recurrence is controlled by treating at its origin.
Phases of cough
- Inspiratory phase
- Compressive phase
- Expiratory phase
