HP and Cough

Hi SJ, hope you are doing great!
this person is in the third week of health point, he is experiencing cough most of the time and is trying to cut down on smoking at the same time. he smokes around 7 cigarettes a day now, compare to 20 a day before health point. how can we help his coughing disappear?
His mom who is helping him to prepare food, most of the time prepares chicken as the main protein meal (so not to trouble the mum). If protein food, he eat the normal hard boiled eggs, tuna, salmon, on other days. his mum told him 'an old wives tales' that if you eat chicken everyday, you will be having cough.
hope to hear from you soon.
thank you

i think is normal for a smoker who try to cut down his smoking to have cough,this is a reaction form the body,he needs to take cough syrup to help him if very bad,cure his cough then only continue his HP,go and see doctors if his cough is very very bad,otherwise,just get him on cough sweets to help control his cough,take lots of vitamin C besides his normal HP supplements..also check with kenny if he has some other suggestions on cough..all the best
for protein food, is good to take fish,prawn, alternate with chicken and taufo,and water eggs for main meals..


Hi kenny,
Greetings! Can help to advise on the 1st bottom email below?
Greatly appreciated.


Hi Nisah,

This is kind of catch 22 situation. A smoker going through HP may experience cough because the body detox. And because of the cough, he or she may see doctor to stop the cough that will further aggravate the cough once the medicine effect is over.

This is like going through a rehabilitation program. The person must endure this period of struggle before the cough will stop. It is going to be difficult.

Here are the some suggestions:
  • Ask your friend to stop the habit if possible.
  • His main source of protein should be protein powder, vegetables and bean curd. Chicken meat will aggravate cough. This is not a "old wife tale". Same goes to seafood. Fish with scale and fin is fine but seafood such as prawns and squids are no no.
  • Drinks lots of warm water and almond drink. You can ask your friend to buy a tin of almond powder to make his own almond drink. Drink at least 3 times a day. It must be warm. No cold drink.
  • Increase multi-carotene to 3 capsules 3 times a day. If palm turn orange, stop taking it. Take milk thistle 4 tablets before sleep. No need to over-dose on Bio-C. Have 1 COQ10 in the morning. Go to GNC and buy a bottle of Olive Leaf and Cordyceps. For both, take 2 capsules 3 times a day. Once the cough has stop, continue to take Cordyceps for another week.
  • At night, sleep in a well-ventilated room. Air-con room is no no.
  • Drink onion soup. Buy 2 or 3 big brown australian onions. Those that are used by the India food stalls, not those small reddish local onions. Wash it clean, chop the head and tail, do not peel. The outer skin is important. Boil soup. Can add some brown sugar to get some taste. Brown sugar only. Boil for about 10 minutes and drink warm.
Hope this will help. It is going to be tough but it is worthwhile.
