- Welcome to medical professionals from rural and medically underserved areas of the USA and around the world. -  

This year's World Cough Month is a celebration, as diagnosed, medically unexplained, lingering, post viral, post infectious, refractory, daytime only, acute & chronic cough disease  diagnosed as Habit Cough has been replicably & permanently cured - just in time.


Huge "acute cough" news: On March 19, 2020, Dr. Weinberger has updated his seminal diagnosis and treatment "by-proxy" for unexplained, refractory, daytime cough in children and adults to include "acute cough". There has never been anything like this. (Ever in medical history!) HERE


"Once the patient meets the diagnostic criteria for [daytime] Habit Cough, even while the repetitive cough is still considered acute (less than 4 weeks), treatment with suggestion therapy [Weinberger Procedure] is appropriate.


There is no need to wait until the [daytime] cough is considered to be chronic (4 weeks/ child & 8 weeks/adult)."










The video above is a condensed version of the original peer-reviewed and published Weinberger Procedure by proxy for adults and children. Edit for military, police, fire, EMS, and medical personnel is located HERE. Yes, it is a video of a teenager and her doctor. This is what is so important. The original peer-reviewed and published video is held in the video library at The American Thoracic Society (ATS). Don't think that it is just a video of a teenage girl being cured from a simple cough. Bethany is "patient cure ZERO" by proxy for any adult or child who suffers from refractory, unexplained, daytime, chronic, or acute cough. As unusual as it seems, this simple video is curing adults and children in their language around the world. Cure the cough and you mitigate & contain the cough. Resolute force and fleet readiness are achieved. Full version HERE. Download a shareable version HERE.


The European Respiratory Society (ERS) declared chronic cough a "disease" versus a symptom: ERS guidelines on the diagnosis and treatment of chronic cough in adults and children, August 1, 2019, HERE

From: New ERS cough guidelines: A clinical framework for refining the patient management strategy (Published online 2019 Oct 25.) - “The guidelines are based on the recent paradigm shift that represents chronic cough as a disease entity with a common neurophysiological basis of vagal nerve hypersensitivity in the cough reflex pathway."

Cured! - Dr. Weinberger published his Unexpected and unintended cure of [chronic cough disease] habit cough by proxy,  August 22, 2019, HERE

Statement concerning and Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Chronic Cough 1754 (CC), was first known as "Habitual Cough" in 1694. These peer-reviewed and published papers explain everything about diagnosis and permanent cure of acute and chronic, unexplained cough - by proxy. They are easily some of the most impactful and important medical discovery documents of the century. HERE

Do you, (child or adult) anywhere in the world, have a repetitive, chronic or acute, daytime, barking cough that just won't stop? No medicine or procedure works or makes it permanently stop? Is it diagnosed as a "... repetitive barking cough that is not present once the patient is asleep", only to return once awake? It was first described here in 1694. If "yes", there is finally a peer-reviewed and published permanent cure for your acute and chronic, lingering cough that is absent when asleep.  Only now is it permanently cured for free & drug-free - everywhere in the world with a diagnosis from your trusted medical doctorhere. Ask your doctor about peer-reviewed and published The Weinberger Procedure - by proxy anywhere in the world.

"Cure" and  "antitussive or suppressive treatment" are not the same thing. Dr. Miles Weinberger, M.D, is the 50-year cough researcher, pediatric pulmonologist, & immunologist, to provide the only peer-reviewed and published, free & drug-free, cure for adults and children everywhere in the world!


Every other procedure or medicine can only provide a temporary and recurring treatment or therapyYou will never be told it is an actual peer-reviewed and published cure; because no cure exists - anywhere - except for The Weinberger Procedure - by proxy.

Millions of American adults and children with acute or chronic, repetitive, daytime only, cough, and tens and maybe hundreds of millions more around the world, seen in doctor's offices have a similar  cough with no identifiable cause​ or "without medical explanation" (WME). This is also known as idiopathic cough. Is your daytime idiopathic, acute or chronic, refractory, cough, "Habit Cough"? Learn how to diagnose and cure it permanently HERE.

Yes, a YouTube video, as noted in the peer-reviewed and published paper above. (and many more since 1991) It was NO accident, just a brilliant and world-changing, unintended and unexpected discovery, like no other

Observations Concerning Refractory Common Cough

This is a very telling description of "Habitual Cough" from 1694 in London. It explains the cough that lingers after a cold [virus] is gone (but not the cure by proxy which is discovered in 2019).

The 1694 British medical publication, HERE, and below states:  "... habitual cough, which often continues after the first Cough, which was caused by the Cold [virus], is gone ...". Now, people talk about their acute or chronic , "lingering" cough that just won't stop.

The world's first-ever & only peer-reviewed and published, "by proxy", instant permanent cure for acute & chronic cough, diagnosed* as Habit Cough since 1694 - for children and adults.

When you permanently cure your Habit Cough, you mitigate and contain "cough aerosol transmission" of virus and disease.

² DXM is a suppressant and does cure chronic cough. DXM is a safe and effective cough suppressant with a long history of nonprescription or over-the-counter (OTC) use in the U.S. and many other countries. DXM was patented April 20, 1954, and approved for medical use by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1958 and was deemed a safe and effective cough suppressant. (Not a cure.)

Cure your nonstop acute and chronic cough and return your child or yourself back to your best life.

Primary care and specialty doctors from around the world routinely refer their most forsaken cough patients diagnosed with Habit Cough to and they are permanently cured.

"The characteristics of the self-perpetuating Habit Cough is its repetitiveness and absence once asleep." - Dr. Miles Weinberger, MD, 40+ yr. Cough Researcher.

Dr. Miles Weinberger, MD., Pediatric Pulmonologist & Cough Researcher, Professor Emeritus of Pediatrics, University of Iowa. Visiting Clinical Professor of Pediatrics, University of California San Diego, Rady Children's Hospital


From 1694, this British medical research book HERE states: "...habitual cough, which often continues after the first Cough, which was caused by the Cold [virus], is gone ...". 

This 1694 British medical research book is the first documentation found describing the lingering cough that just won't end after your child's or your adult cold [virus] or upper respiratory infection is gone.

Sometimes this cough can linger, unabated for weeks, months, years, or even decades! The Weinberger Procedure "by proxy" instantly cures the adult or child from the vicious acute or chronic cough with proper diagnosis and recovery.

Special note: Some parents or even their medical professionals might assume that the child or adult is coughing on purpose or can stop at any time. This is fully and completely wrong based upon Dr. Weinberger's peer reviewed and published writings & 50 years research experience. When properly diagnosed as Habit Cough, the cure is right HERE.

Dr. Miles Weinberger, MD's replicable repetitive acute and chronic cough cure was just peer-reviewed and published in Annals of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology - "Chronic cough in children and adults", Miles Weinberger, MD, Department of Pediatrics, University of California, San Diego, Rady Children’s Hospital, San Diego, California.  Print to show your doctor. HERE This is the first and only cure for acute and chronic cough diagnosed as Habit Cough anywhere.

Characteristics of Habit Cough in children and adults - "The characteristics of the self-perpetuating Habit Cough is its repetitiveness and absence once asleep." - Miles Weinberger, MD.

Note: Dr. Weinberger told us that it might take a while for our daughter to fall asleep due to the constant coughing (it did). If, however, her cough was absent once asleep (it was) only to reappear once awake in the morning, (which it did) her repetitive cough was chronic (more than 4 weeks) Habit Cough. He then cured it instantly, in mere minutes, for free without drugs - permanently.
