Hack Your Cough: Customized Herbal Remedies for Lingering Woes in Beaverton
When a Cough Lingers: Beyond the Common Cold
A cough that lingers past a week can be more than just a pesky annoyance. It can disrupt sleep, impact your daily life, and signal an underlying imbalance in your body. While conventional cough syrups may offer temporary relief, they often address the symptom, not the root cause. It is where traditional Asian medicine shines, offering a holistic approach to healing your cough from the inside out.
The Lingering Cough Culprit: Weakened Constitution
Traditional Asian medicine views a lingering cough as a sign of a weakened constitution. This depletion can arise from various factors, including:
- Lingering effects of colds or viral infections like Covid-19
- Chronic stress and anxiety
- Poor diet and digestive issues
- Underlying lung or respiratory weaknesses
When your constitution is compromised, your body struggles to expel phlegm and fight off pathogens, leading to a persistent cough.
Customized Herbal Solutions for Your Unique Cough
Dr. Kihyon Sohn, a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist in Beaverton, Oregon, takes a personalized approach to treating lingering coughs. He uses traditional Asian herbal medicine to:
- Identify the root cause of your cough: Through a comprehensive consultation and pulse diagnosis, Dr. Sohn pinpoints the specific imbalances contributing to your cough, whether phlegm accumulation, lung deficiency, or Qi stagnation.
- Formulate customized herbal remedies: Based on your unique diagnosis, Dr. Sohn creates a personalized blend of herbs tailored to your specific needs. These herbal formulas may include:
- Lung-tonifying herbs
- Phlegm-dissolving herbs
- Qi-regulating herbs
A Patient’s Journey to Cough-Free Days
“I had been battling a cough for weeks after recovering from Covid,” shares Susan, a patient of Dr. Sohn. “Over-the-counter medications weren’t helping, and I was exhausted. Dr. Sohn listened carefully to my symptoms and created a personalized herbal formula. Within a few days, my cough improved, and I felt my energy returning. Now, I’m finally cough-free and feeling much stronger.”
Beyond Herbs: Acupressure and Lifestyle Tweaks for Faster Healing
Dr. Sohn’s approach goes beyond just herbs. He may also recommend acupressure points to stimulate lung function and relieve congestion. Additionally, he provides guidance on dietary and lifestyle changes to support your recovery, such as:
- Incorporating warming foods and beverages
- Getting adequate rest and managing stress
- Practicing gentle breathing exercises
