  1. This is a very important post for AAP because we have come to accept AK to have suffered this problem for the past several months. Now for the remedies - my only reation is that there is no need for any remedy for dry cough as much as for cold, fever, Remedy may relieve you from a symptom which is bothering you, but it is also very important for us to understand here that we should not do this for one important reason. Simply by using remedies for removing the symptoms of disease is like misleading you into believing that you do not have to pay any penalty for the mistakes that you have committed in your daily life and that you can continue to live in the same way by simply suppressing the symptoms with remedies. We should realize that these symptoms like cough or cold are the result of your wrong ways of living. The truth is that as long as the cause persists, the effect will also persist. Therefore instead of using remedies for illnesses, you should focus of correcting the mistakes of living. Follow the following rules of health. 1, Eat only when hungry. 2. Chew your food thoroughly before you swallow it. Eat one meal of just one kind of fruits, Eat one meal of a big bowl of raw vegetable salad without any salt, lime or oil. Eat your dinner before sunset and wait for 3 hours before going to bed. When ever you get a bout of coughing, take a small sip of plain cold water and keep it in your mouth for some time and then swallow it. Daily take a long walk or jogging and then relax for some time. Do slow and soft deep breathig and hold the breath after inhaling as well as exhaling. Meditate for some time after deep breathing exercise. Fast for half a day upto 4 pm and eat fruits at 4 pm. Eat your cooked food in the evening by 7 pm. Be very happy.
