The magic of Vicks VapoRub!
Tuesday, March 06, 2012
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 a child (or 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 and is more effective in children 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 bed time. In addition it seems to have a
soothing and calming effect on sick children who then went on to
My DH tried it on himself when he had a very deep constant and
persistent cough a few weeks ago and it worked 100%! He said that
it felt like a warm blanket had enveloped him, coughing stopped in a
few minutes. So he went from every few seconds of uncontrollable
coughing, he slept cough-free for hours every night he 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.
DON'T SHUN THIS ONE. TRY IT THE NEXT TIME YOU GET A BAD COLD. THE
ONLY THING YOU CAN LOSE IS YOUR COUGH.
