Pinner Said - My sons doctor told me about this 37 years ago. Use Vicks Vapor Rub and socks. Even the worst cough can be stopped within 5-15 minutes, and lasts hours. Just apply the vapor rub generously to the bottom of your (or childs) feet, and cover with socks. works 100% of the time, and has been proven to work better than prescription drugs! I remember this too.
Tried this for a cold. Definitely helped with my symptoms. I'd advise less tumeric, though, as it didn't want to dissolve all the way. / Worth-Its-Weight-In-Gold Gold Wellness Drink 1/2 tsp turmeric 1/2 a lemon, chopped in half 1+ tsp fresh grated ginger 1 pint hot water ...once tea is cool enough to drink, add: 1 teaspoon + honey (if just making a cup, halve this recipe)
