Huge News! Chronic Cough Declared a Disease ~ Not Just a Symptom

Updated: Oct 17

Since chronic cough is now declared a disease by the European Resp, we can only hope that research money might be directed to more research into The Weinberger Procedure by-proxy for children AND adults. This can only be termed fantastic news!

Chronic cough a disease, not a symptom (August 1, 2019): Read HERE and HERE as chronic cough (CC) is declared by the European Respiratory Society (ERS) to be a disease [and not just a symptom]

Note: Chronic cough may have many etiologies.

From their: ERS guidelines on the diagnosis and treatment of chronic cough in adults and children; Accepted after revision: 01 Aug 2019.

“While the aim of these guidelines is to further awareness we recognize the scale of the task and recommend that the ERS should advocate chronic cough as a classification in the World Health Organization (WHO) International Classification of Diseases (ICD).” Where it is currently classified as a symptom.

Note: Word search of the above referenced ERS guidelines on the diagnosis and treatment of chronic cough in adults and children, does NOT include the word “cure”. It includes the word “treatment” 55 times.

Chronic cough, diagnosed as Habit Cough cured: Dr. Miles Weinberger, MD, cures unexplained daytime only, chronic cough (August 22, 2019) as well as acute cough, in children and adults, diagnosed as Habit Cough, memorialized in his peer-reviewed and published letter: Unexpected and unintended cure of habit cough by proxy; [by watching a YouTube video] Published: August 22, 2019; DOI:

Permanent "cure" and temporary "antitussive” or “suppressive treatment" are not the same things.

Dr. Miles Weinberger, MD provided Dennis and Jennifer’s daughter with a peer-reviewed and published, permanent "cure" via a Skype video call!

Like their other doctors, your medical doctor might provide evaluation and treatment for common types of cough with no benefit or just provide temporary, antitussive or suppressive "treatment" or "therapy"; but not a “cure”.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! - To the fine medical professionals, doctors, pulmonologists, pediatric pulmonologists, specialists, scientists, and researchers from the American Thoracic Society (ATS), European Respiratory Society (ERS), and World Health Organization (WHO), we stand tall to applaud and heartily thank you.

Your hard work, diligence, perseverance, and integrity in current and future acute & chronic cough disease study will certainly advance knowledge, research, and the acceptance of The Weinberger Procedure by-proxy for acute and chronic Habit Cough all around the world. The world’s most humble appreciation is extended to them.
