Coughing (Very Severe)
Here you will find radio spots that might reference your illness.

Just a good thing to know:

Vicks for coughs I wish I'd known this when my family was young during Winter colds and coughs. I am going to try it myself. Share with young parents. Isn't life strange? When we had 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 Vapor Rub 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 at the Canada Research council (who discovered it) aren't sure why. To stop night time coughing in a child (or adult as we found out personally), put Vicks Vapor Rub generously on the bottom of the feet at bedtime, then cover with socks. Even persistent, 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. I heard the head of the Canada Research Council describe these findings on the part of their scientists when they were investigating the effectiveness and usage of prescription cough medicines in children as compared to alternative therapies like acupressure. 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 chemical makeup of these strong drugs so, I listened. It was a surprise finding and found to be more effective than prescribed medicines for children at bedtime, 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%! She said that it felt like a warm blanket had enveloped her, 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 that she used it. If you have grandchildren, pass it on. If you end up sick?, try it yourself and you will be absolutely amazed by the effect.

I've had an extremely bad cold & at times a horrendous cough for a few the past two days.  This afternoon a cough hit me so hard that I couldn't even speak more than a few words without a hard cough.  The first thing I did was to put a pinch of salt on my tongue and chase it down with a glass of water, but nothing happened.  I called my wife Connie & told her what happened.  She that I must let the salt dissolve on my tongue, so I said to myself I don't see what good that will do because I use lots of salt & I just took more, but I did what she said and my coughing stopped in about two seconds.  It is now about three hours later & I coughed only once since.  Keep in mind that I had been coughing for about a half hour & it kept getting worse.  Considering all the salt that I use, the last thing I thought that I needed was more salt.  Thank you Connie for waking me up.  Anyone with a severe cough or asthma will be amazed at how quick the results come.  I've seen it work for a bad asthma attack in less than five minutes, but this almost instant relief amazed me.  I need to add that the salt did not affect my mild cough, but it is great for breaking mucous up.

Please send me an email to let me know how it helped or didn't help you.
