Are you troubled by a constant cough ???

Our body responds to irritants in the throat and respiratory tract, by paroxysmal coughing. If coughing becomes a persistent symptom for a long duration of time it may become unpleasant and tiring, and may affect our daily life and ruin our sleep. Chronic cough can usually be resolved by treating the underlying cause, however the difficulty lies in finding the cause.

The most common causes of chronic cough are:

  • postnasal secretions,
  • asthma and
  • gastroesophageal reflux, but can also be caused by
  • medication,
  • bronchitis,
  • or an infection.

How Acupuncture alleviates this irritating symptom:

Acupuncture reduces the symptoms and stimulates the body’s self-healing abilities. Acupuncture promotes the alteration of the bronchus mobility and regulates the production of secretions and the contraction of the bronchi.

Advantages of acupuncture in cough:

  • Reduction of coughing bouts
  • Balances the body’s chemical imbalances
  • Strengthens the immune system
  • Absence of side effects
  • Significant long-term benefits
  • Improves sleep (cough free)

Auricular Acupuncture can also be used to treat cough:

Auricular acupuncture is one of the most widespread microsystems, in recent years.  It has received international recognition, is taught in many countries and the World Health Organization recognizes it as a therapeutic system with a wide range of applications, good results, safety and ease of application.
