There’s lots of cancer info on this site – and occasional items on other conditions – so do please browse. This supports and extend the info and critical discussion in my two cancer books – see www.fightingcancer.com for details.

Vicks VapoRub Cure for Coughing

I don’t know if this is a joke or what – but I am posting it anyway. You be your own judge. The following message was sent to me:
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 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.
