Acupuncture on Chronic Cough

Mr Gwee had a history of chronic cough for over 6 months. There were throat irritations, hoarse voice, and dry sputum. The extent of coughing had been worrying to his children. He had been seen and treated by doctors and TCM practitioners for several years with no results and Chest X-ray showed no active infected nodes.

On his first visit, he had uncontrollable cough, which had caused alarm to other patients. From the Auricular finding, the energy levels at 89/54 with Lungs 87. Therefore, points taken on him were mainly regional- such as on the Chest and the Lungs ā€“ and Large Intestine channel, included ECIWO Lungs, E-system Neiguan, Tiantu, Zhongwan, Zhusanli and Feishu.

His cough had been under control after 3 sittings of treatments. I had prescribed some pills that helped him to lubricate the throat and tonics for the lungs. However, he had been coming back on a regular basis to keep up his health. His daughter would bring him in on all his appointments.
