Ear Seed Placement for Persistent Coughs: A Reader’s Question and Our Expert’s Advice

Recently, we had a conversation with one of our customers, Vicky, who was seeking advice on ear seed placement for her husband’s persistent cough. Vicky’s husband is a smoker and has been experiencing a lot of coughing and has to sleep sitting up.

In my response, I first asked Vicky if her husband’s coughing had been going on for more than two weeks. If so, I advised her to seek a medical consultation and get a lung scan. I also provided Vicky with a ear seed placement for coughing and instructed her to massage the points, especially the lung acupuncture point, several times a day. You will also find a copy of the placement chart below.

In this case, Vicky’s husband’s persistent cough may be related to his smoking habit, and it’s essential to address that before seeking any alternative therapies. It’s also worth mentioning that ear seed therapy is not intended to replace professional medical care, but rather to supplement it. So, it’s always best to consult a doctor before trying any alternative therapies.
