I came down with a bad cold last Thrusday evening. I knew I was in for a sleepless night. Remembering the email below, I decided 'Wwhat the heck - I'll try it. The worst thing that could happen is my feet would enjoy it.' Well, I'm very pleased to say, it works!! Try it. Try it on your little kids. It's very soothing. Maybe you'll all get a good night's sleep.
For the price of vapo rub this is worth a try. During alecture 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 Vapo Rub for years for everything from chappedlips to sore toes and many body parts in between. But I've never heard ofthis. And don't laugh, it works 100% of the time, although the scientistswho discovered it aren't sure why. To stop night time coughing in a child(or adult as we found out personally), put Vicks Vapo rub generously on thebottom of the feet at bedtime, then cover with socks. Even persistent,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 inchildren than even very strong prescription cough medicines. In addition itis 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 chemical makeup of these strong drugs so, I listened. Vicks Vapo Rub was a surprisefinding and found to be more effective than prescribed medicines forchildren at bedtime, in addition to have a soothing and calming effect onsick children who then went on to sleep soundly. My wife tried it on herself when she had a very deep constant and persistentcough a few weeks ago and it worked 100%! She said that it felt like a warmblanket had enveloped her, coughing stopped in a few minutes and believe me,this was a deep, (incredibly annoying!) every few secondsuncontrollable cough, and she slept cough-free for ho ur s every night thatshe used it. If you have grandchildren, pass this on. If you end up sick, try it yourself and you will be absolutely amazed at how it works.
