Default Stop coughing in five minutes

During a lecture on Essential Oils, they told us how the foot soles can absorb oils.

Their example: Put garlic on your feet and within 20 minutes you can 'taste' it.

Some of us have used Vicks VapoRub for years for everything from chapped lips to sore toes and many body parts in between. But I've never heard of this. And don't laugh, it works 100% of the time, although the scientists who discovered it aren't sure why.

To stop night time coughing in an adult as we found out personally, put Vicks VapoRub generously on the soles of your feet, cover with socks, and the heavy, deep coughing will stop in about 5 minutes and stay stopped for many, many hours of relief. Works 100% of the time. More effective than even very strong prescription cough medicines. In addition, it is extremely soothing and comforting and they will sleep soundly.

Just happened to tune in A.M. Radio and picked up this guy talking about why cough medicines in kids often do more harm than good, due to the chemicals in them. This method of using Vicks VapoRub on the soles of the feet was found to be more effective than prescribed medicines for children at bedtime. In addition, it seems to have a soothing and calming effect on sick children who then went on to sleep soundly.

My wife tried it on herself when she had a very deep constant and persistent cough a few weeks ago and it worked 100% !! She said that it felt like a warm blanket had enveloped her, coughing stopped in a few minutes. So she went from every few seconds uncontrollable coughing, she slept cough-free for hours every night she used it.

If you have grandchildren, pass this on. If you end up sick, try it yourself and you will be amazed at how it works.


TRY IT THE NEXT TIME YOU HAVE A BAD COUGH. THE ONLY THING YOU CAN LOSE IS YOUR COUGH.

I'll have to try that next time we have a cough. The cough syrup here in USA doesn't work.

It really does work, I sent the email to my son and he replied that his granddaughters, my great granddaughters, both had bad coughs the previous week and after applying Vicks they stopped coughing after a very short time and slept through the night.

Cough medicines are mostly grain alcohol- look at the label. Old timers used honey, rock candy, lemon juice and a potent clear liquid made in an isolated place in the forest.
Harry, that is very interesting. What if you don't have any feet?

Patient- Doctor, I cough so loud I can't hear.
Doctor- Here, this will make you cough louder.
