Meet My Friend Vic

Vic and I became good friends last night. You see, all day yesterday I had a constant dry cough. Nothing would give me relief. The only positive I could find is that my abs were getting a great work-out! So I was worried at bedtime cause I needed to sleep. Suddenly I remembered one of those "forward" emails I had read a while back. The email said to rub this stuff on the soles of your feet, covering them with socks, and that it would help. I was pretty skeptical but gave it a try out of my desperation. I rubbed some on the bottom of my feet and then wiped what was left on my fingers on my chest. And ya know what...I coughed maybe 3 times the rest of the night. Now, I realize there are a lot of factors that could have contributed to my cough suppression, so this still needs further experimentation. What I do know is that my cough stopped and that was all that mattered! The other thing I didn't realize was that Vicks can be used to put on sore muscles. So what it does on the bottom of your feet is create a warm feeling that lasts for hours....like you just got an awesome foot massage. And when your feet relax, so does the rest of your body. It was wonderful. Infomercial over. No, I do not own stock in this product :) If anyone else has tried this, let me know how it's worked for you!
