Just before I knock off, (yes, I am drugged again) ...
Just want to let you know that I'm trying this (article below) out with the boys I got it in an e-mail and another mom actually vouched for it. So hope it works, especially for poor Max who has been sick for anout a month.
Will let you know the progress, and if it works for all or only certain people.
NEW USE FOR VICKS VAPORUB *
WOW! I was raised, and raised my kids with Vicks. How
come I never knew this? I can't wait for my next cough.
Amazing ! READ ITALL. It works 100 percent of the time,
although the scientists at the Canada Research Council
(who discovered it) aren't 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 then 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 absolutely amazed
at the effect.
Pass this on - especially to those with children or grandchildren.
