By training, I am a American Board Certified Pediatrician. But in my younger years I grew up with natural alternatives. As a mom I have tried to incorporate both for my kids and it has worked wonders. And finally, as I am studying natural & alternative medicines, I realize the beauty and wisdom of living closer to earth. Hence in my practice I integrate both...for acute ailments I follow American Academy of Pediatrics recommendation but for simple and/or chronic conditions I prefer natural alternatives. In western training we were raised to think that "health is the absence of symptoms and problems". But eastern sensibilities has educated me that "Health is state that allows one to use the full capabilities of their body, mind and intellect. Therefore, healthy living is a balanced state of well being: physically, mentally, socially and spiritually." This implies that healing is not a "one-pill-fits-all", but a personalized experience.

It may be a reaction to an environmental factor or drug treatment. Cough can also be a symptom of a cold, flu, or a more serious condition such as chronic bronchitis, allergy, whooping cough, or asthma.
    Depending on its cause, the cough may last longer or shorter and be accompanied by other symptoms. Cough is called dry or irritation when not associated with sputum. It often has an environmental cause or appears at the beginning of a pathological state. Although it has a protective function, a dry cough can have consequences that are difficult to manage daily.
