After 18 Months, Our Daughter's Cough has Gone

Our daughter's cough went on for a year and a half, in fits and bursts, culminating in a huge dose of antibiotics, which worked for a while, until the cough came back. Our GP referred us on to a respiratory specialist, who was also unable to get to the bottom of it. Some things seemed to help for a little while, but each time, a month or so after the medication of the time finished, the cough returned.

When we moved house to Mittagong after 18 months of this, I was tearing my hair out. I had begun to think the cough was a stress response to her life. We spent a particularly unpleasant week’s holiday just after moving, where I think she must have coughed huge, deep hacking coughs six to ten times every hour that she was awake. It was affecting our relationship as I am particularly sensitive to irritating noises like this.

In desperation I tried homeopathy. I had grown up overseas, and our family used homeopathy for various ailments, so it wasn’t new to me, although I hadn’t used it since my teenage years.

Four months later, I think I can honestly say she is cough-free. We’ve had a few different remedies. The first one cleared up the major hacking barks in a matter of weeks, and since then we’ve been working on the little residual coughs. Diet changes have helped her a lot, and I can tell when she has eaten something that she shouldn’t have... the coughing recurs a little for a while.

I’m really grateful to Nyema, and to her skills in homeopathy. Having seen what it did for my daughter, I’m now taking my son to see her as well as myself!
