Chronic cough has, of course, a (large) number of possible physical causes such as smoking, certain medications, an allergy or a disorder of the airways. In many cases, however the cause is rather mental or the chronic cough is at least perpetuated by mental factors.
Fear can make chronic cough increase
Fear for a physical cause (such as for cancer of the airways in a smoker or ex-smoker) can bring about much anxious attention, that clearly makes the chronic cough increase. It is sufficient that this fear is present somewhere in the psyche, consciously or subconsciously.
Influence by the use of AURELIS
With AURELIS, you can influence chronic cough in several ways: through a diminishment of fear and negative expectations and also through the direct effect of autosuggestion by means of mind-body connections such as an influence upon the regional blood flow and inflammation processes.
Together with other simple measures
Some other simple measures are: drinking a lot of (water) and inhalations with water vapour, better without added products. Ensure also a good moistening of the surrounding air. And especially, make sure that you are not stooped under a large amount of unnecessary fear. If a good doctor reassures you after a thorough investigation in this respect, then take that reassurance very seriously.
