Meeting Dr. Weinberger

Updated: Aug 28, 2022

It is said that we should never meet our heroes. Well, we can put that old adage to rest. Meeting Dr. Weinberger was wonderful.

Three years after Dr. Weinberger, MD, instantly and permanently cured Bethany from her cough she got to meet him.

He came to Maryland from his home in San Diego, California, for a short east coast visit.

Our families had a wonderful lunch at The Pointe Crab House and Grill in Arnold, Maryland

Meeting Dr. Weinberger for the first time was like seeing an old friend after a long time apart.

Dr. Weinberger is the world renowned, 50 year medical doctor who founded and ran the cough cure clinic at University of Iowa ~ instantly curing children from their cough for 40 years.

He is the first doctor to ever cure a patient from coughing ~ via a telemedicine call, in-office and yes, by simply watching a YouTube documentary.

It's hard to believe (but true) that simply by watching the documentary children as young as 3, and adults with decades long ~ 18 hour per day cough have been cured in minutes, and sometimes as noted by a pediatric pulmonologist "... her incessant cough stopped within seconds".

Chronic cough is the number 1 reason that Americans go to the doctor. There has never been a cure.

Bethany is the now 15 year old girl who coughed 1/2 million times. (Over 5,000 times per day.)

Nothing could help her. Dr. Miles Weinberger, MD, cured her via a Skype call in 15 minutes.

A YouTube documentary of the session now cures children and adults around the world from "habit cough", simply by watching the video.

It is peer reviewed & published, and has been written about all around the world. It is available in 6 major languages.

No longer forsaken. End of the rabbit hole. Dr. Miles Weinberger, MD, a pediatric pulmonologist, and cough researcher from The University of Iowa Pediatric Allergy & Pulmonary Clinic to the rescue ~ for Bethany’s instant & permanent cure!

Before the Internet made the world of medicine and medical research a much smaller place, treatment of the worst cases of refractory chronic cough in children and adults was performed in pulmonary, otolaryngology, and neurology clinics around the USA and across the world. Well-intentioned but factitious diagnoses were common, and treatment was erratic. Consequently, there was rarely a permanent cure, so the patient and family were left to suffer with a daily cough that severely altered the quality of life.

The exception was those few physicians who would think outside of the box and approach a repetitive cough that was absent during sleep as a functional disorder, meaning there was no organic bases for cough. — One of those physicians was Miles Weinberger, a Board certified Allergist and Pediatric Pulmonologist who began and directed the Pediatric allergy and pulmonary clinic at the University of Iowa Hospital and Clinics from 1975 to 2015. Children with chronic cough were evaluated and those with physical disorders such as protracted bacterial bronchitis, asthma, bronchiectasis, and tracheomalacia were identified and effectively treated. For those children with no physical or organic cause of the cough, habit cough was identified and a simple behavioral method, suggestion therapy, stopped coughing in the clinic. Patients were taught to use the technique they learned in the clinic at home when needed; that was known as autosuggestion. The results were so amazing that doctors and specialists at renowned medical centers around the world “typically” and “routinely” refer their worst case scenarios to to watch and be instantly and permanently cured from their intractable chronic cough.

From 1975 through 2015, Dr. Miles Weinberger, MD,

pediatric pulmonologist, immunologist, asthma, and cough researcher, operated his pediatric chronic cough clinic with great success and the cure of many children. He is now retired and living in California. He is continuing his cough research and is currently Visiting Professor of Pediatrics, University of California, San Diego as well as Professor Emeritus, University of Iowa.

Throughout his Pediatric Allergy & Pulmonary Clinic years, scared parents would arrive from around the country, with their children suffering from chronic cough for a chance to be seen by Dr. Weinberger or one of his colleagues, when all hope was lost. Most had already been seen by multiple physicians, been given various tests, and trials of medication, all without benefit. They would normally be seen for an hour. In that hour, the presentation of habit cough was sufficiently characteristic that the diagnosis was made, treatment by suggestion therapy was provided and the child would be cured, an average of 7 per year. The characteristics of habit cough that permitted almost instant diagnosis was the frequent repetitive cough that was absent once the child was asleep.

Identification and treatment by suggestion was first described by Dr. Bernard A. Berman, MD, F.A.C.A, from Boston, Massachusetts (1924–1995), who, in 1966 published a manuscript called Habit Cough in Adolescent Children. It based on 6 children seen over 5 years, all with repetitive barking cough that was absent at night. All were cured by “the power of suggestion.“

Dr. Berman accomplished his non-pharmacologic, instant & permanent cures, utilizing “suggestive therapy” first discovered by Émile Coué de la Châtaigneraie, a French psychologist and pharmacist who introduced a popular method of psychotherapy and self-improvement based on optimistic autosuggestion.

Unfortunately, Dr. Berman passed away before Dr. Weinberger could meet him. Developing and utilizing his own variation of suggestion therapy, Dr. Weinberger normally cured the afflicted child during 15–30 minutes of their 1-hour visit. He says that curing so many children, so rapidly, and so completely, was “… very satisfying”. He always believed and insisted that the “… recovery procedure” was as important as the cure.

In 1991, Dr. Weinberger and his colleagues published a study called:

Outcome of habit cough in children treated with a brief session of suggestion therapy. It resulted in what could only be called an incredible outcome. It explained a diagnosis of Habit Cough defined as “a repetitive cough, not present while asleep”. The absence while asleep was the “sine qua non” for the diagnosis. While the cough itself was often characteristic, the cough was somewhat variable in presentation, so absence while asleep was considered an essential piece of information in making the diagnosis of Habit Cough.

“While the coughing was often stopped quickly during the suggestion therapy, the urge to cough could persist for days or weeks and the autosuggestion practice often had to continue. Children referred to the feeling they related to the general area of their throat as their tickle, spider, or just a feeling that precedes the cough. That feeling would gradually decrease as the child continued suppressing the cough until the inflammation that occurs from repeated coughing heals.” — Dr. Miles Weinberger, MD

Since the research team were all pediatric medical professionals, there was little to no discussion of Habit Cough in adults. It was only after adults read The Daily Beast article about the doctor behind the ‘miraculous’ cure for nonstop coughs, numerous unsolicited reports of instant cures from decades long medically unexplained chronic cough began to pour in from adults around the world! All they did to replicate the instant cure was to watch the video on and apply the technique they had observed.
