I recently developed an annoying cough that has been keeping me up all night, and no amount of cough syrup, cough drops, or Airborne tablets seemed to help. But then some of my Asian friends revealed their homemade remedy: rub Vick’s VapoRub or Tiger Balm on the bottom of your feet, then wear socks before you go to sleep. I was skeptical at first, but I decided to try it last night. To my amazement, my cough really did go away!
I’m totally convinced the Chinese are right when they say our feet is the passageway to the rest of our body. Chinese foot massages don’t just feel good — I believe they’re good for you too.
Our other fave cough remedy? Nin Jiom Pei Pa Koa, fob cough syrup.
