my friend has suffered with night coughing for years. She said it;s so annoying. When she see a doctor he prescribes medicines that help for about a week or so, then the coughing starts again. she doesn't even wake up most of the time when she's coughing, but the rest of the house is awake. any natural suggestions?

I know nighttime coughing is worsest thing to have as it affects your sleep as well as you will have burning sensation in your chest. Put some Vicks Vaporub on the bottom of the feet at bedtime, then cover it with socks. The coughing will stop in about 5 minutes and stay stopped for many, many hours of relief. This I came to know through a mail and tried it and it indeed worked well for me, just give it a try you have nothing to lose but everything to gain.

Your friend is suffering from some dislocated joints or veins. She'd better see a person to administer the appropriate massage so she'd be rid of that. In the Philippines, we call them the manghihilot. Drinking the juices one gets from pressing the oregano leaves will greatly relieve her of the painful coughing. Heated leaves of the atis or tuba-tuba will definitely free her of the coughing stints for the night. It might prove to be helpful if she'd be treated by a chyropractor. They have the training regarding getting back the bones in the body properly aligned.
