Stop a Cough

Stop a Cough

If you have a constant dry cough with no sore throat or other symptoms, then it could very well be a matter of habit and wrong breathing.

You may already have tried different remedies as a cure for coughing and although you may get relief for a while, it still comes back to be a nagging, persistent dry cough - the remedy doesn't stop it.


It will often come in bouts and is probably worst first thing in the morning when you get up. I often notice it more though when I have a change of temperature - going indoors from out or vice versa.

I must admit, there have been times I have coughed so hard and long that I have pulled muscles in my rib cage.

Your dry cough could very well be the result of having too high levels of carbon dioxide in your system as a result of not breathing properly.

Try this technique to see if it relieves your cough.

As soon as you begin to cough, take three deep breaths through your nose and then exhale very deeply once through your nose.

So - inhale three times, until you feel that your lungs can't take any more, then exhale once though your nose. 

The deep breaths will raise the oxygen levels in your blood and exhaling very deeply will remove carbon dioxide.

You can try it the next you start coughing and see if this dry cough remedy works for you.

Personally, I find that this remedy will stop my coughing immediately and it's something I can do any time.
