*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 minutesyou can 'taste' it.
Some of us have used Vicks vapor rub 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 vapor rub generously on the
bottom 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 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 chemical
makeup of these strong drugs so, I listened. It was a surprise finding and
found to be more effective than prescribed medicines for children at
bedtime, in addition 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 and believe me,
this was a deep, ( incredibly annoying!) every few seconds uncontrollable
cough, and she slept cough-free for hours every night that she 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.
DON'T SHUN THIS ONE.. TRY IT THE NEXT TIME YOU GET A BAD COLD.** *
