I am suffering from dry cough. What should I do?

Certified Diabetes Educator, Registered Dietitian (RD), PGDD, Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S), General Physician
Dietitian/Nutritionist,
Firstly there's no lifelong cure for the common cold. Antibiotics are only effective against infections of throat and are of no use against cold viruses. Over-the-counter (otc) cold preparations won't cure a common cold or make it go away any sooner, and most have side effects. A saltwater gargle 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2tsp turmeric dissolved in a glass of warm water can temporarily relieve a sore or scratchy throat. To help relieve nasal congestion, try saline (pure salt water) nasal drops. If you have a throat infection, or a viral cold then I will prescribe appropriate meds based on your detailed assessment. Do reply back for medication prescriptions. Being also a general physician and registered dietitian, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary guidelines and home remedies carefully personalized for each individual patient.

I am 23 year old and I have dry cough in night only. I want to know which medicine is to be taken.

BHMS
Homeopath, Raebareli
Drink plenty of warm fluids. Drinking warm fluids helps to loosen the secretions in your sinuses so that your mucus flows more freely, making you feel better faster. Studies show that drinking warm fluids relieves cold symptoms such as runny nose, cough, sneezing, sore throat, and fatigue.

I am smoking from last 4.5 year 7-10 cigarette a day but now im try to quitting this, is lungs affected or its normal, ant suggest me how to clean my lungs also.

Reparenting Technique, BA, BEd

The lining in the throat is filled with tiny hair like structures called cilia. Cilia are tiny hair-like organelles that reside on the surface of cells. There are two types of cilia: motile and non-motile. The former continuously move in a wave-like fashion in a single direction, while the latter function as sensory organs that respond to stimulus. The most common reason to suffer damaged or paralyzed cilia, however, is smoking. Normally, healthy ones in the bronchial tubes work in sync with specialized cells that produce mucous to capture and remove impurities from the lungs. Smokers, on the other hand, are subjected to about 7,000 toxic chemicals in cigarette smoke, including arsenic, methane, and carbon monoxide. This damages the organelles, and dirt, environmental pollutants, and toxins from cigarette smoke remain in the lungs. Furthermore, these toxins migrate from the lungs via the bloodstream to other organs. In response to the presence of excess irritants, mucous cells in the lungs become stimulated to produce more mucous than they normally would. Of course, with damaged cilia, the lungs have no means of moving the mucous out. This usually results in an unproductive cough. In fact, the damage caused by smoking leaves the smoker at significantly higher risk for frequent respiratory infections, or chronic bronchitis. Continued smoking may eventually lead to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD, including chronic bronchitis and emphysema) or lung cancer. In fact, smoking eventually destroys the cilia, which may then be displaced by an excessive number of basal cells or squamous cells. Over time, these cells may become cancerous. They may also become rogue, escaping through lung tissue and invading other parts of the body. The tobacco tar in cigarette smoke lines your lung with huge patches that make that portion dysfunctional. Your oxygen carrying capacity is jeopardized, and breathing is impinged. Regarding improving your lungs, do a lot of aerobic exercise breathing through your nostrils only. Then there are a lot of deep breathing exercises in Yoga which you can learn too. Deep breathing cleanses your system and lungs and restores it to good health. Deep breathing uses the 80% of the lungs which are not normally used in normal breathing and even when exerting yourself.

As you mentioned you are having ibs and fatty liver you must concentrate on the diet first beacause these disease are chronic and easily gets relapsed with inappropriate diet. Along with that you are using inhaler for asthama. All these symptoms are related to kapha dushti and angimandya acc. To ayurveda in short. For now you can take tab. Arogyavardhini vati 2 tabs twice a day before 15 min. Of food tab. Praval panchamrita 2 tabs twice a day. You must undergo the panchakarma therapy for relief from these situations. Visit an ayurvedic physician near you. For diet avoid spicy food, bakery products, milk (specifically at night time, milk products, curd, and other heavy food products. You can take only freshly made buttermilk at food time.

BHMS
Homeopath,
Give me sir right homeopathy or ayurvedic medicine for asthma without side effect my PEFR 350 to 400.
Dear Lybrate User, Asthma is preceded by the production of histamines in the blood. Histamine is produced due to the entrance of foreign particles in the body. The triggering cause behind the onset of asthma varies in every patient. A detailed case taking along with some blood test results are required to diagnose the proper underlying cause behind asthma. Please conduct a laboratory test of your blood for TC, DC, ESR & IgE. Revert back with the results & consult me privately via Lybrate. In the mean-time you can take Homoeopathic Mother Tincture GRINDELIA ROBUSTA Q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water.

If you have completed full course of your anti tb drugs and have been assessed at the end of the course by a final x ray and blood tests which have shown good healing. You are cured. If you have any doubt. You may simply do a blood test like esr which is a good indicator of disease activity.(normal means no activity. Also a simple cbc of blood to check if your block counts are normal. You may do the check ups and cone hack to this platform. We shall be able to guide you further.
