New Use For Vicks Vaporub

It’s working!

First, I would like to thank you, Tim & Ann of Labuan, who forward this article to me yesterday. Hmmm…. You guys must have been tired of reading my on and on complaints about my pollen allergy in my posting recently. At least something good came out of it…..haha! Thank you guys! It has been a while since Billy and I had a good night sleep. So I was pretty desperate to tries whatever helps us survive this season. Spring season (in East TN) is officially in my ‘S’ list.

Anyway, I have tried it last night and somehow it’s work for me. I had less congestion, no coughing and much better slept last night. Of course my stinkin allergy is still very much kicking but at least I slept through the night. :D

Okay, here you go;


WOW! I was raised, and raised my kids with Vicks. How come I never knew this? I cannot wait for my next cough. Amazing! READ IT ALL. It works 100 percent of the time, although the scientists at the Canada Research Council (who invented it) are not sure why. To stop night-time coughing in a child (or an adult as we found out personally), put Vicks Vaporub generously on the bottom of the feet at bedtime and cover with socks.

Even persistent, heavy, deep, coughing will stop in about five minutes, and stay stopped for many, many hours of relief. This works 100 percent 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. I heard the head of The Canada Research Council describe these findings by their scientists when they were investigating the effectiveness and usage of prescription cough medicines in children as compared to alternative therapies like acupressure.
I just happened to tune in to 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 make-up of these strong drugs, so I listened. It was found to be more effective than prescribed
medicines for children at bedtime and 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 percent! She said it felt like a warm blanket had enveloped her. The 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 she used it. If you end up sick, try it yourself and you will be amazed at the effect.
