How to stop a nagging cough quick.
I found this in an e-mail, so I thought I'd share this tip.

Quote: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 or Mentholatum 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 or Mentholatum 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. 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 or Mentholatum 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 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 ity ourself and you will be amazed at how it works.

DON'T SHUN THIS ONE.. TRY IT THE NEXT TIME YOU HAVE A BAD COUGH. THE ONLY THING YOU CAN LOSE IS YOUR COUGH.

In all imminent seriousness I tell no eminent lies...

A lot of the prettier women I work with always have a nagging persistent little cough...

Like they're always trying to clear their throats of something...

Doesnt take a government protected nazi rocket scientist to figure out why...

As my swinging tongue is slowly driven through my swollen cheek...

That sounds like a great opportunity for you to rub mentholatum all over their feet for experimental purposes only. drool.gif I'm sure most women would not say 'no'. chuckle.gif

RE: How to stop a nagging cough quick.
In reading a little more on applying a petroleum-based product to the soles of one's feet, some argue that it is not a healthy product. Vicks VapoRub supposedly also gets rid of toe nail fungus too.

So, here are links to alternative essential oils that you may try on the soles of your feet instead of Mentholatum (which I believe is Eucalyptus oil anyway) for that nagging cough and perhaps congestion too. But, I would prepare a strong brew from the dried organic herbs, or let the herb oils draw into a carrier oil, then apply.

Eucalyptus, sage and peppermint. (Can also be used in a vaporizer).

Here are some more ancient remedies and old wives tales for stopping a cough.

Quote:Tickling in Throat, Simple Remedy for:
"Take bread crumbs and swallow them."

Quote:Cough Mixture I

Mix thoroughly some honey and vinegar and take in small quantities when the cough is troublesome.

Alternatively, place a lump of sugar in a teaspoonful of vinegar; when the sugar has absorbed the liquid suck slowly.

Source: Home Made Wines, Syrups and Cordials, The National Federation of Women's Institutes

Quote:Cough Syrup:

One quart of water, one handful of hops; boil these together, and
strain; put in this fluid a cup of sugar, and boil to a syrup; cut a
lemon into it, and bottle for use.

Source: Recipes Tried and True, Ladies' Aid Society of the First Presbyterian Church of Marion, Ohio

Some of the other rememdies are just too out there. damned.gif
