Why read Monday Morning Power?

You will find a consistency and a focus in all of my content that can change your attitude which can fuel a positive change in your life, if you want it to. If you are happy with your attitude and your life and see no reason for changing, then you either already have a PMA (Positive Mental Attitude), or you are a victim and want to hold onto your misery. These postings will then serve to fortify the person with PMA, or, hopefully, convince the "victim" that there is a better way. This site will contain essays, poems, stories, humor and links, all with the same goal: The pursuit, capture, care and feeding of a Positive Mental Attitude. I have had readers tell me that they have spent hours on my site and feel great about themselves both during and after. I log onto my own site frequently to help fuel my attitude; I hope you will as well.

The Amazing Vicks Vaporub

This is not a joke and I am not being paid to report this. Consider this a public service announcement. If you have small kids, you must read this.

This is an email that a dear friend sent me. I also tried it and it does work.

Subject: Vicks Vaporub- this is amazing! Try it.

During 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 Vaporub 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 who discovered it aren't sure why. To stop night time coughing in a child (or adult as we found out personally), put Vicks Vaporub 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.

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.

Please let me know if it works for you also.

Onknees (not_onknees at the moment) said...

I dont know if its a cuban thing or what but my mom used this stuff on us all the time. Not the feet, but she would warm it til it was liquid, rub it on our chest and then place a warmed up washcloth over that with our pajamas to hold it in place. Another dab around the nostrils and off to bed. Slept like a baby, coughing gone and decongested in the morning....but that smell...lingers...long time...

moooooog35 said...

Also good for penises.

Don't ask me how I know.

Shinade said...

Thanks for sharing this with us Mel.

And, yes you are right about Vick's being used so much.

It seems when I lok back that I can barely remember not going to bed without Vick's Vapor Rub on my chest.

My mother thought it was the cure for everything.

But, I've never tried it on my feet. Now I will!!

Wonderful share of information:):)

Monique said...

It is effective in all the ways mentioned, including the feet. I have used it on both of my sons. They squirm at how icky it feels going on, but the coughing does indeed stop.

Madamoiselle ver.2 said...

Hi Mel,
I didn't know that it also works on the feet! Good info. Normally, i wud only do what "onknees" & "shinade" had described. :)

Anyway, please do come by my blog. I have an award for you. Have a great day!

Monday Morning Power said...

My mom did the same thing. I hated the smell and it made my eyes water. The feet are a much better place to put it.

Monday Morning Power said...

I don't think I have to ask.....

Monday Morning Power said...

Let me know if it works for you.

Monday Morning Power said...

I like validation of information. Thanks for sharing.

Monday Morning Power said...


I will be right over.

Sandee (Comedy +) said...

I didn't know this. I'll have to give this one a try next time someone in the household has a cold. Thanks for the tip. :)

Monday Morning Power said...

Let me know how it works.

Baba Doodlius said...

Cool. Weird, but cool. Almost as cool at duct tape curing warts. I swear I did not make that up.

Monday Morning Power said...

Alright....duct tape and warts.....give me the scoop, the skinny, the information, awwwww hell, just tell me how it works. And "NO" I do not have warts.

Max said...


We have always used it for that purpose: stop coughing and to cure colds, flus!

I didn't know that this was news there! Here in Portugal we rub Vicks either on our (kids and adults) chest or feet; and it works! I know this much for 30 years now...

Amel's Realm said...

OHHHH PRECIOUS info!!! I'll remember this next time, Mel. THANKS A LOT! ;-D

Monday Morning Power said...

What can I say, Portugal is so far ahead of the US when it comes to the "common sense" approach to many things. Hey, but we have the "Grand Canyon."

Monday Morning Power said...

Let me know what happens when you do use it.

Max said...

Indeed you do lol :D!

Amel's Realm said...

Sure, I'll remember to tell you later. ;-D

themuxicbox said...

Does this only works for cough? I wonder whether it works for nose block as I do have a perpetual nose block.

Monday Morning Power said...

Music Box,
If this works on a stuffed nose, please let me know.

Thaddeus said...

It will not succeed in reality, that's exactly what I think.
