What are best home remedies for whooping cough?

My baby has been suffering for whooping for almost two weeks now. We have taken him to his pedia, but the medicines that he have taken for 7 days straight still has no effects. I wonder if you have some tips so that my baby could sleep well at night and reduce vomiting every time he coughs.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

I use a book called "Smart Medicine for a Healthier Child" and it compares many conventional, nutritional, herbal, and homeopathic treatments for many childhood diseases.

For Whooping cough- nutritionally: avoid dairy, get as much fluids as possible, increase Vit C, Zinc, and carotenoids. Take some healthy flora like Lacto and Bifido (in many yogurts) to help her bowel. Herbal: Licorice tea, marshmallow root tea, osha root tea, and Slippery Elm Bark tea (I have used the last one, works great) Or you can get the oils and put them in your humidifier if she won't drink a tea.
Homeopathic: depends on other symptoms, homeopathy is pretty specific.

Do you have any naturopathic doctors or kinesiologists (often a chiropractor) in your area??? Good luck!
