Applying Vicks On Your Feet Can Clear Cough? Experts Explain

Vicks ointment has been used to treat cough and colds for many years. The vapor rub is mainly used on a person’s chest when they are suffering from a cold or even the flu. It has been put into steam vaporizers to help relieve a stuffed up nose and help us sleep better. Others have used the ointment on the outside of their nostrils to help clear up a sinus infection. A newer method of using the well known vapor rub is to apply it on the feet of the person with the cold. After the Vicks is spread over the feet, the person should put socks on.

Holistic practitioners have known for centuries that many ailments can be healed through the soles of the feet. Dr Anthony Weinert, a holistic foot specialist located in Michigan, believes that “health issues that can be discovered with holistic podiatry can range from nutritional imbalances or deficiencies in the body to noticing signs of changes in your feet that may indicate health conditions such as diabetes, fungal infections, cardiovascular disease and high blood pressure.” If all of these things can be cured through the feet, then the Vicks solution being applied on the sole of the foot to help with a cold makes sense.

Of course, there are many people out there that claim that using Vicks Vapor Rub on the feet will not help with a cold at all. There are just as many, if not more, believers out there that swear that it works to not just stop a cough, but it will actually cure a cold. Some experts believe that it may only work as a placebo, which is where the mind fools itself into believing it is working, so somehow it does. Placebo or not, if it works to stop the coughing, then why not try it.
