How to treat incessant cough

Chronic cough

Here is how to treat incessant cough. You have chronic and incessant cough. Apply number of moxa cones corresponding to the person’s age at the spinous processes from acupuncture point DU14 (??) to the fifth vertebra.

Another way is to apply 3 moxa cones at acupuncture point LV14 (??). This will make coughing stop.

The other way is to apply 3 moxa cones at the hollow point between ribs, one finger breadth inferior to the center of the nipple.

In women, take the point where the nipple touches when it is pressed down. Apply moxa cones at the left side for men, and the right side for women. Stop when moxa strength reaches the flesh.
