Dry cough (definition) is a type of cough that does not produce sputum
or phlegm. It can be triggered by infections and cold (the most common causes of
dry cough), allergic reactions, traumas, lung cancer, airway obstruction, and
other abnormalities. In most cases of chronic dry cough, inflammation is an
In cases of difficulty breathing, fever, chest pain, heart palpitations, night
sweats, or swollen legs or ankles, the situation can be life-threatening and you need to
seek immediate medical help. In cases of persistent dry cough, see your health
Dry cough can be present in people with various respiratory conditions, such as asthma, bronchitis, COPD,
cystic fibrosis and many others. In most people, the problem gets worse at night
due to additional CO2 losses.
There is an irritation of the urge-to-cough nerve receptors which occurs due to low CO2 levels in nerve cells in the airways. It is the same situation as in cases of inflamed nerves in the brain leading to panic attacks, anxiety, and many other problems. Why do people with respiratory conditions often have a dry cough? The cause is low CO2 levels in their airways.
These people suffer from chronic overbreathing, even when they do not have dry cough. They also will breathe more during coughing up to 20 l/min and higher. They suffer from reduced-body-O2 content or less than 20 seconds for the body-oxygen test. (Note that the medical norm is 40-50 seconds.)
The picture below explains the main details of dry cough mechanism and causes of cough. Note that CO2
deficiency leads to spasms of all smooth muscles in the human body. These muscles
include bronchi and bronchioles, while their constriction is known as bronchospasm.
An additional cause of persistent dry cough is inflammation that appears and
becomes chronic only in cases of positive body voltage due to a lack of
electrical grounding. Electrons from Earth quench and prevent development of
Dry cough remedies
The main dry
cough home remedy includes a simple and easy breathing
exercise. More than 170 Soviet and Russian medical doctors tested thousands
of their patients, and discovered that most cases of dry cough could be stopped
in 1-2 minutes using "Breathe Easy" exercise (to accumulate slightly more CO2
while being totally relaxed). This breathing exercise calms down nerve cells in
airways (the urge-to-cough receptors), and increases body-O2 content.
You can see my video below, with detailed instructions that explain how to get rid of dry cough.
The permanent remedy or dry cough cure
When people with dry cough achieve a certain result, in seconds, for their body oxygen test, they become free from airway dryness and have no more problems with this symptom. This number is provided right below here as your bonus content.
