The next time you're hacking up a lung, try stopping it with the ancient Chinese healing art acupressure.
If you feel pain when using acupressure, stop immediately. Pregnant women should not use acupressure.
Step 1: Press beneath your collarbone
Using the index and middle fingers on each hand, press the two spots located on either side of the notch at the base of the throat, in the hollow just below the collarbone. This strengthens the respiratory system. Keep the pressure up for one to three minutes with this exercise and the following ones.
Step 2: Reach behind you
Reach behind you to press the acupressure points known as the Vital Diaphragm, located about an inch below the highest point of each shoulder blade, toward the center of your back.
Have someone else press points on your back if you can't reach.
Step 3: Tilt your head down
Tilt your head down and, using the first two fingers on each hand, put pressure on the points a bit above and on either side of the vertabra that protrudes at the top of the spine when your head is leaning forward. This manipulates the point known as Ding Chuan, which relieves wheezing.
Step 4: Relieve a dry cough
For a dry cough, try pressing the point called Heaven Rushing Out: It’s located in the large hollow at the base of your throat, below your Adam's apple, if you're a man.

Chronic coughing that is the result of emotional problems is called psychogenic coughing, and mostly occurs in children.
I could hardly reach the spots because my shoulders are so tight and knotted from coughing for day's. I must've reached them good enough though because my cough has way subsided. I've coughed a couple times since but not the uncontrolled hacking like before. I'm so grateful!!

omg! i just tried it now! and it worked on my 7 yr old son! but before this, 3 hrs ago i gave him his prescribed meds (antibiotics and cough meds), i also used Vicks VapoRub on his chest, throat, back and soles of his feet. But his nonstop cough is still there. He was crying and throwing up already due to fatigue of coughing. And as a desperate mom, i looked something on google and youtube on how to calm the cough. Tried this for 3 mins (the back method pressure) and it worked!!!

My ten year old grandson read this and it stopped his coughing and gave him the relief he needed because his mother said no one slept the night before because he had coughed the whole night before, this maybe a temporary relief but he still wasn't' coughing when she picked him up later that day. I am sold.
*I discovered this tea while traveling in Ireland. My sister had an asthmas attack and fortunately with the help of essential oils a hospital visit wasn't required. A couple we met in Ireland had just come back from Sri Lanka and brought this tea for her. I was also coming down with a cold. We both drank this and had immediate results. Neither of us was sick for the rest of the trip. The only thing I would caution people about is US Customs. I ordered the 100 sachet package over a month ago and it still hasn't arrived. I have been contacted by the UPS Customs folks and it has been held up there and also has to go through FDA approval. I would like to find other ways of shipping to avoid this in the future. Highly recommend.*
