Chronic Cough

If you have been to a specialist because of chronic cough and you’ve taken a lot of medication but your doctor still can’t find the source of your cough, then it’s time to consult with a traditional Chinese medicine practitioner.

Unlike mainstream doctors who examine the symptoms to target the affected organ and produce a diagnosis, a traditional Chinese medicine practitioner will conduct a more holistic examination to come up with a diagnosis.

When diagnosing the cause of chronic cough and to be able to provide a proper prescription, a herbalist will conduct a thorough examination to find out which of the 12 primary organs are imbalanced and whether the yin and yang energies are in tune with each other.

After diagnosing the patient, the herbalist will then prescribe a list of herbs that the patient needs to take to relieve a chronic cough. Many herbalists also have the herbs stocked in their facility, so the patients do not need to a separate herbalist to buy their medicine.

Each case is unique so the length of treatment may vary from one person to another depending on the severity of the case.

Some patients experience relief from their symptoms after several weeks, while others may need to take Chinese herbs for several months or more.

Acupuncture can be used along with Chinese herbs to treat chronic cough. Treatment of chronic cough also begins with an extensive diagnosis by the traditional Chinese medicine practitioner.

The length of treatment also varies from one patient to another, depending on the severity of the case

Chronic cough includes asthma and chronic bronchitis

Asthma is an allergic disease that appears to be a combination of genetic and environmental factors. Individual-inducing factors vary and their causes vary. A vicious cycle occurs, mainly with frequent colds and severe cold symptoms. The chest is particularly painful and you may install sleep with a cough attack at night.

Dry cough is a typical symptom of chronic bronchitis.

The cough caused by a normal cold may be recovered within 2 weeks.

Chronic cough is more than two weeks, while cold symptoms such as runny nose, fever and fatigue are accompanied.

Chronic cough is one of the symptoms that occur when the function of the circulatory system decreases.

The overall immunity may be weakened.

Depending on your physical condition, it can be divided into a severe case in the morning and in the evening.

Due to weakened bronchial function, coughs may even occur intermittently in the cold wind.

On top of it if you are under long term stress condition it can contribute to bronchitis. The body heat generated in a stressed situation rises to the top and makes the bronchi more dry.

Sinus

Sinus that visits at the turn of the season is usually allergic sinus, but it can be seen as a respiratory disease that occurs while causing a hypersensitivity reaction from a specific substance.

Causes include most animal hair and mold, house dust, mites, pollen, and dust.

If allergic rhinitis is displayed due to these causes, it may cause serious problems in daily life, whether it is children or adults, may reduce academic and operational efficiency, and may shift to chronic sinus. So, more so, you need to pay attention to fast treatment.

Next, what is chronic sinus?

It is a case where symptoms are repeated for a long time instead of waiting for a while at the turn of the season.

Typical symptoms include nasal congestion, runny nose, and sneezing, which can be easily displayed to children with particularly weak lung function and immunity.

Chronic sinus does not just induce symptoms such as runny nose, stuffy nose.

It may be accompanied by symptoms such as headache, fatigue, loss of appetite, poor concentration.

If breathing is not smooth during sleep, it can lead to sleep problems and subsequent growth problems.

It is recommended that you quickly recognize the extent of the symptoms and start treatment.

The root cause of sinus can be seen to be closely related to immunity.

It may also appear due to structural problems such as facial asymmetry, deviated septum, etc. 

For proper treatment, a direct visit may be required to determine the patient's other symptoms and the degree of symptoms, constitution, etc., and then appropriate treatment may be applied to each.

Common Cold

A cold is a disease caused by a virus that infects the upper respiratory tract, including the nose and throat. Its symptoms includes aversion to cold, runny nose, sneezing, cough, sore throat and body ache.

Just as in winter, when the immune system is weakened and colds tend to be caught easily. And the symptoms of colds can be easily displayed due to fine dust, pollen, and when the highs and lows are extreme.

Colds can be caused by more than about 200 viruses, and these viruses can be transmitted through the bronchi, such as the mouth and nose, even in healthy people who are present in the air, seasonal at the turn, more careful management is required.

Most of people know about the cold well but sometimes they may not even notice while having cough only. The individual might have different symptoms and symptoms appear 1 to 3 days after being exposed to the cold depending on how much the virus penetrates the upper respiratory system. It will be displayed variously like coughing, runny nose, stuffy nose, sore throat, and sore muscles. Occasionally, conjunctivitis may occur, and symptoms may vary depending on the patient's age, existing disease, and immunity.

A cold is a disease that tends to result in a particularly weakened immune system, and it is necessary to apply customized treatment according to the cause, symptoms, and body constitution.
