Persistant cough weeks after a bad cold

|My mother who is 75 had a really bad cold a couple months ago. I live near by so I stopped by daily to check on her and help out with things around the house. I ended up catching the same cold and as far as colds go it's the worst I've ever had. The worst of it lasted for 2 weeks for both my mother and myself. We both have a cough that will not go away. It seems like it is harder on her because she seems completely wore out from the constant cough. The cough is sometimes productive producing a very tenacious thick light greenish sputum. Other times the cough sounds wet but nothing is produced and just non stop. I had her schedule an appointment with her physician who did nothing. No tests of any sort. The few minutes she was in the doctors office the she didn't cough so the doctor has no idea what the cough sounds like and without testing just guesses it's a virus that will get better on it's own. Our symptoms and the progression are very similar. I know how miserable I feel and I can see how completely drained she is. It does seem worse while lying down and as she gets more weak she lies down more so coughs more. She has been using NyQuil hoping to get some relief and be able to rest but has had not relief.
Can anyone suggest something that may clear things up and stop this cough?

Nat sulph and silica are for green
Kali mur is to stop the drip that has to be going on From back sinus passages. The drip can be subtle but
Causes coughing and is what turns things into a chest cold instead of just a head cold.
'Ferrum and calc phos are for any chronic respiratory issue. In future if you get a cold start ferrum phos every half hour on day one.It will usually stop a virus in a day or two -IF you begin to use it at first sign of being ill.
Mag phos-helps to reduce the coughing.
All of these get 6x.
Then mix 6 tabs of each in about 250 ml of a water bottle.shake and take sips every hour while awake.
Report after 3 days.

Or order from vitacost online -good prices and usually get in one or two days as they seem to have warehouses at every airport.
Cell salts restore balance to the cells themselves.
If USA,I also advise get host defense-- reishi mushrooms.says for a healthy heart on front.only that brand. It is just powdered mushrooms-huge immune boost. You do not feel anything-but just like you are feeling well.only that brand. Whole Foods has and vitacost also.my family has used these for years- fabulous. Take 3 caps am and pm if sick.

Mom's symptoms were getting worse so I ended up taking her to a different doctor and x-rays showed she had pneumonia. They prescribed some antibiotics and she is currently taking them. Since she is on antibiotics now can she still use the items you suggested?
As for me, I'm going to wait for my order and once it arrives and I start using the products I will update after 3 days.
|Re: Persistant cough weeks after a bad cold||From simone717|| on 2017-03-22||I cannot understand the negligence of the first doctor. I wanted to say
It could be pneumonia,but thought that the first dr at least ruled it out by listening to her chest-but I guess even if they did,they either do not care,or sub par skill level.
You should get checked for this too-
It is nothing to fool around with-ever.
Yes, the salts and mushrooms will simply boost the immune system,
And you should do them, for faster recovery along with whatever meds dr prescribed.
