Do you have that cough? You know, the one that hangs around for up to several weeks and robs you of your sleep. It seems like it is never ending. If you have it, then you may have already got your cough diagnosis. You may have been told it's chronic bronchitis. You may have been told you will have to live with it.
If you are a first-timer, you will be started with a barrage of antibiotics to find that they don't work, then to be told you have chronic bronchitis and you will have to live with it.
According to 'TheNNT.com' for those who received antibiotics for acute bronchitis, none, Zero, Zip, Nada people were helped over all. This means that of the Number Needed to Treat (NNT), out of 100 people, none were helped. It was noted that there was a decrease the number of patients with cough at a follow up visit (NNT=6). There was also noted a decrease in the duration of cough, days feeling ill, and days of limitations in daily activities, approximately one half of a day for each.
On the other hand, the Number Needed to Harm, the antibiotics slightly increased the number of patients with adverse effects to 1 in 37 (NNH=37).
Some even get put on steroids, only to find they don't work.
For steroid use, more specifically, Glucocorticoids for Bronchiolitis (inflammation of the bronchioles), there was no benefit for hospital admission. So, the NNT was 1 out of none.
First consider the response from January, 2017.
Dear Water Cures, I wrote to you for advice at the beginning of the week. I had had a cough for six weeks and antibiotics and steroids wouldn't help. I can't believe the difference. I feel ever so much better. I am sleeping well and my cough is improving. What I didn't say was that I have MS, and now even my walking has improved. Thank you so much, I have been telling everyone to drink more water, and to go to your website. Thank you.

A Huge Undertaking to Stop Coughing
We can help!
With so many developing that cough that won't go away around the world, we have decided to develop some outside the glass information on how to end the relentless coughing. We have reports of some being helped by the Water Cures where even steroids, with the one exception of a natural steroid that is rarely suggested or used for this, have not helped. Yet for others, the Water Cures alone does not help.
Because this is an area where we have helped so many, we are taking the time to develop this. It is a huge undertaking and will take time. If you want to help, we need copy editors to review what we are writing and help us get the information up faster.

Chemtrail Cough We propose a new possibility as to types of cough. It could be chemtrail cough. While there has been much debate on the reality of this vs the conspiracy theory behind it, in 2016, the US government admitted additives in jet fuel have been used for geoengineering.
Whether they are chemtrails or contrails, all agree that they at the least, jet engine exhaust has carbon dioxide, various oxides of sulfur, nitrogen, un-burned fuel, soot and even metal particles. These are in addition to the water vapor the engines produce. These particles promote the condensation. As the condensate disappears, the particles end up settling to the Earth and we breathe them in.

Vitamin D3 is a natural steroid. It is also an incredible supplement. To get the benefits though, some doctors recommend between 1000 and 5000 IU to provide benefits. It should not be taken by people with certain conditions. It is also essential to take it with vitamin K2 MK7. This helps the blood to send the calcium to the right places.
Finally, it is essential to take 400 of magnesium with it. If your magnesium levels are low, your body will not be able to absorb or use the vitamin D3. It may provide the solution you need.
