Editorial Reviews

Elizabeth Bachman
Congratulations! The Chronic Cough Enigma really packs a punch. Like Dropping Acid: The Reflux Diet Cookbook & Cure, this book is very clearly written. You do an excellent job of explaining some fairly sophisticated medical concepts. That's important, because most patients want to be educated but not talked down to. When I wasn't furious at the medical establishment in general and my GI doc and his ASC in particular, I actually enjoyed reading it and learned a lot. I know that you became a doctor because you wanted to help people, and this book will help many, many people.
Nancy Lieberman (Dr. Koufman’s patient)
“After ten-years of seeking a cure for my chronic cough, Dr. Koufman finally has me on the road to recovery. Her practice of what she calls integrated aerodigestive medicine puts all the pieces of the puzzle together in a most logical and innovative way.”
Robert T. Sataloff

    Excellent book.  Unlike the ubiquitous medical paradigm of speci

    Excellent book.  Unlike the ubiquitous medical paradigm of specialty medicine (where each specialist seems unwilling to look at anything
    outside their specific body part, thereby "missing the forest for the trees"), Dr. Koufman looks at the whole body and explains the
    inter-connection of symptoms.

    I have had an unrelenting, embarrassing, constant chronic cough (and chronic throat clearing) for 6+ years, which started after
    a severe upper respiratory infection.  The cough has been so bad at times that I have cracked ribs.   I've seen dozens of specialists
    (including at the Mayo Clinic and the University of Mass. Cough Clinic); endured innumerable tests; and taken at least 25 different
    medications.  I was given various diagnoses including  “reflux” or “GERD”; post-nasal drip; psychogenic cough (a.k.a. "habit cough")
    and ... my favorite, "chronic cough" (i.e. symptom = diagnosis!)

    Over the years, I made a number of dietary changes -- to no avail.   I was put on Nexium for years (and now have osteoporosis at a
    young age, likely caused by long-term use of  this medication which can cause bone loss and is, thus, only recommended for short term
    use). I was put on numerous antibiotics and multiple courses of steroids (which led to a yeast over-growth in my gut -- only discovered
    recently -- which also causes chronic cough and chronic throat clearing, among other things).

    As described in Dr. Koufman's book, the gastroenterologists, ENT’s, pulmonologists, allergists and internists I saw over the years
    have a shockingly incomplete understanding of “silent reflux” and "neurogenic cough."  The diagnoses I was given by various doctors
    were incomplete (or simply,incorrect); the medicines I took for years were unnecessary (and, in some cases, exacerbated the cough
    and/or caused further damage) and the recommended dietary changes were not enough.  

    How I wish I had read Dr. Koufman years ago!   Having implemented the  comprehensive dietary changes and lifestyle
    modifications recommended in this simple, easy-to-read book, my cough has improved tremendously and I am finally on the
    road to recovery.  

    I STRONGLY ENCOURAGE ANYONE WITH A CHRONIC COUGH (AND/OR  SINUSITIS, ASTHMA, POST NASAL DRIP,
    etc.) TO READ THIS BOOK and save themselves a lot of time, money and misery.

    Thank you, Dr. Koufman!
