Cures of the "awake cough" without a cause (absent once asleep) everywhere in the world. Important: Consult with your doctors to rule out any comorbidities.

Habit Cough Diagnosis
by Dr. Miles Weinberger, MD
Updated to include "acute" cough (below) by Dr. Weinberger on March 19, 2020

The repetitive [daytime] barking cough that is not present once the patient is asleep is the diagnostic criteria. (It might take a while for the patient to fall asleep. It matters whether the cough is not present once asleep; only to return once awake. - Editor note.)

The characteristics of the self-perpetuating [daytime] Habit Cough is its repetitiveness and absence once asleep.

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 [Dr. Weinberger's Procedure HERE; in-office, via-telemedicine and by-proxy] is appropriate.

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


Multiple patients report that knowledge of Dr. Weinberger's Procedure allows them to stop their future [daytime] coughs during the acute period once diagnosis of Habit Cough has been met.


Note: Dr. Weinberger is a big proponent of patient interaction with their doctors. Many adults and parents report that they have quite successfully utilized The Weinberger Procedure on themselves or their children with numerous instant cures in the first days of their new acute [daytime] coughs - long before they become "chronic" in length. They report their cures to their amazed doctors. Please consult with your doctor prior to your use of Dr. Weinberger's Procedure. If you attempt to utilize The Weinberger Procedure on yourself or your child, you are doing this under your own volition.

If you meet the diagnostic criteria, Dr. Weinberger would like you to communicate with your doctor, and watch this video HERE

Interesting bit of habit cough diagnosis history in adults.
Note: Using our same search criteria, the term "chronic cough" was first noted in 1737. This was over 50 years after the first found diagnosis of habit cough was published.

Dr. Weinberger's habit cough diagnosis for adults & children from today is the same as that of an adult female in a medical text book from London, England in 1685.

It just took a pediatric pulmonologist from University of Iowa to discover the instant and permanent cure for habit cough via-telemedicine, by-proxy (via YouTube) & in-office.


From: The LONDON PRACTICE OF PHYSICK Contained in the First Part of the Pharmaceutice Rationalis of Dr. WILLIS (c. 1685)

Page 265 - Of Convulsions in Adult Persons

"Afterword those Convulsions [coughs that were so violent that they were like the convulsive coughs we see
HERE] more frequently molested her, and at length becoming periodical and habitual, they return'd twice a day," 

"viz. [namely] constantly justsomany set hours after Meals;... viz. [namely] a violent dry Cough following her day and night, unless when she was fallen asleep:..."

Special note: Until Dr. Weinberger's research, there had been little acknowledgement of habit cough in "adult persons". It was known well enough to be prominently included in this medical text book from 1685.
