What is a Chronic Cough?
If you have had a cough for more than three weeks, it may be chronic. When something is chronic it means it lasts for a long time.
- Are you coughing up thick yellow or green phlegm?
- Are you wheezing (making a whistling sound when you breathe in)?
If you answered, yes to any of these questions you may want to see your doctor.
Smoking can cause a cough that doesn’t go away. If you smoke, you need to stop.
Postnasal drip caused by allergies can make you cough. Postnasal drip is mucus that runs down your throat from the back of your nose. If you have a postnasal drip from allergies, try to avoid the things you are allergic to, such as the following:
- Pollen, mould, and freshly cut grass
- Pets and certain plants
- Cleaning agents and room deodorizers
- Chemical fumes
How can Serrapeptase Help?
Serrapeptase helps immensely as it clears out all of the inflammation and mucus. By clearing away this problem tissue it enables the body’s own healing system to replace it with healthy tissue and deprive the bacteria of a place to thrive.
How many do I take?
Start with 3 tablets of SerraEnzyme Serrapeptase 80,000IU x 3 times per day on an empty stomach and increase it to 4 x 3 if no relief within 7 days. Then gradually reduce to 1 x 1.
Can I take too many tablets or can it interfere with any drugs I am taking?
No. It has been used for over 25 years with no side effects reported.

It is important that patients with bronchitis stop smoking and avoid polluted places as much as possible, such as city centers or factories.
If steroids/antibiotics have been taken for some time, advice is needed for actions to boost your own autoimmune system, such as probiotics.
It is important to follow a starch and dairy-free diet.
Drinking 6 large glasses of water per day is also critical.
