    Someone may have shared this and I remembered and passed it on to two
    customers. Today I got a call of "THANKS". So if I stole the idea I'm sorry but since it seems to work I want to make sure others know. That nighttime hacking cough is enough to drive a saint to drink!

    At bedtime cover your feet with Vicks Vapor Rub and put on socks. Soon thereafter you will be able to sleep without coughing. My customer is ECSTATIC as last night was the first night's sleep she's had in four days.

    I'll admit it - I'm skeptical.

    It sounds like those foot pads that supposedly draw the toxins out of the body through the feet. ;)

    I'm not one for vapor rub on the socks, but I'll bet it does work! I make tea from dried thyme, and it helps quite a bit. Just add sugar. Or make a soup with thyme in it. Turkey or chicken is good.
