What do you do when you or a family member has a bad cough that keeps you or your loved ones awake at night. A Canadian Research Council have find an incredible cure for night time coughs and it is very simple and very safe. Put Vicks Vaporub On the bottoms of your feet and then put socks on. This will work in about five minutes. And it works even with persistent, heavy, deep coughing will be stopped and you will have relief for many hours and be able to sleep through the night. It i9s said that it will work 100% of the time, and is more effective in children then even the strongest prescription cough medication. In addition it is very soothing and comforting and they will sleep soundly for hours.

I have a very chronic cough as a result of severe asthma. I just read this in a health newsletter I subscribe to and thought I would shear it. I am going to try it tonight. I also have never used Vicks any where other then my chest and throat and a little dab under the nose.

It really depends on what type of cough is present. We usually use lemon or calamansi to treat it. We dont make it a habit to drink medicines at once because we will get used to it. We always try to go natural and we sometimes create our own mixture to cureour diseases. Its effective and very economical.

Hi, If anyone has the cough in my family I just simply give them cough mixture or cough lollies, which can temporarily help, anything more then we take a trip to the doctors...

Hi dear gabs. I cough all the time and this does really seem to help. It is better then a rub of vicks under the nose. I just wish I would remember to do it more often.

Does this work for the common cold or flu too? I am upnow due to stuffiness, headaches and sneezing. The medication I have taken seem to have worn off and I just cant sleep due to all of these. I feel so sick.

At first I was thinking it was some heavy duty codeine medicine but I guess I was wrong. I bet this works too. Thanks for the great tip.
