Cough variant asthma or chronic cough is an often under-diagnosed or misdiagnosed condition. Often it is confused with bronchitis. Although Water Cures can help relieve the symptoms of both, when it comes to coughing, there are some water or salt variations that can improve outcomes.
We have found a way to relieve coughing asthma or chronic cough. It is simple, easy to do and it is free or at the least, very cheap. The treatment is probably right in your cupboard or in your fridge. You can skip to the bottom and click on the link for the solution. Please read this page to better be able to understand why it works and what is going on in your body.
There is confusion when you look at the definitions of the bronchitis and cough variant asthma. Chronic bronchitis is an
inflammation of the lung airways. It is considered a form of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).
Asthma likewise is a chronic inflammation of the airways. The cough is the commonality.
There is a difference. In asthma, the smaller airways are inflamed. In Chronic bronchitis, the persistent cough produces phlegm and mucus. Bronchitis, to be considered chronic, has to produce the symptoms for a few months a year and in two consecutive years.
Also, there is a difference between coughing asthma and asthma. In coughing asthma, there is rarely wheezing. Yet even with the coughing, there is airflow obstruction and broncho-spasm, tightness of chest. When the coughing is at its worse, shortness of breath is experienced. This is not to be confused with the coughing that signals an asthma attack.
Some conditions can cause the same symptoms. Allergic rhinitis, sinusitis and even foreign body aspiration can cause similar symptoms to asthma.
In one young boy, being treated for asthma for years, it was found that he had aspirated a peanut. The peanut had attached to the trachea. Peanuts are one of the most common obstruction. Once removed, he went on to lead a normal life.
Latex balloons should also be considered as a potential cause of the symptoms. If a part of a broken balloon is inhaled accidentally, it can easily conform to the shape of the trachea.
It is also possible to have COPD and asthma at the same time. COPD can be a result of asthma.
There are variables that could make the diagnoses difficult if not impossible to identify the cause of the cough. That variable is chronic post nasal drip. The post nasal drip could be caused by the same trigger that is causing the chronic asthma cough. Thus, it looks like bronchitis and not cough variant asthma.
Those with coughing asthma often have the cough for several weeks and it often comes annually and then disappears.
Ironically, many doctors and nurses who have personally experienced coughing asthma can recognize the cough in others and lead them to relief.
Triggers include increased exercise, exposure to allergy causing substances such as dust, perfumes, chemicals and cold air exposure. Some have noted that stress can even be a trigger.
Cough-variant asthma is sometimes called chronic cough to describe a cough that has lasted longer than six to eight weeks. The coughing with asthma can occur during the day or at night.
Beta blocker like Propanolo can trigger asthma in some who are susceptible.
Aspirin, NSAID's and angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors (ACE Inhibitors) may cause symptoms too.

It is amazing how so many things that are new to us were common knowledge in the past. One basic practice of the Water Cures protocol is to drink at least 30-45 minutes before and 2 1/2 hours after a meal. This is not a new thought however. Notice what a magazine from 1925 had to say...
"Drink plenty of water two hours after each meal; drink none just before eating; and a small quantity if any at meal time. Do not take a bath until two hours after eating a meal, nor closer than one hour before eating. Drink a full glass of water both before and after the bath." (Golden Age, Sept. 9, 1925, pp. 784-785)

Listen to your body. Do not use this if you are under a doctors care. Do not stop taking medications without consulting your doctor. If you are on medications, consult your doctor if you start the Water Cures Protocol as it may change your needs.

Hi, my name is Sharon. The webmaster of this site is my nurse, my personal water coach and my husband.
As this site was first being built, I had a headache and as usual took an Ibuprofen. Impatient for it to start working, I decided to try the Water Cures. I took a pinch of salt and a glass of water. Then I took a second pinch of salt and another glass of water. My headache was gone in less than 5 minutes.
From my personal experience, it usually takes 30 to 45 minutes for Ibuprofen to work. Some have found it takes ibuprofen 24 minutes to start working.
Yet on the Water Cures protocol, my headache was gone in 5 minutes.
Its simple: give your body what it needs and your body will give you what you need, the ability to feel great.
Water Cures was the solution for the elimination of my headache. It is what I will use from now on.
Why not give it a try yourself.
