Yummy Cough Medicine




If over the counter meds are not helping to ease your cough, try this yummy trick: Consume one small piece dark chocolate. It contains theobromine, a compound that researchers found that's more effective at suppressing cough than codeine. That's because theobromine calms an excited vagus nerve, which runs from the airways of the lungs to the brain and is responsible for triggering coughs.

Hi Liz, now thats what I called a fantastic medication. Now I can tell my wife when she grumbles I eat too much chocolate, "I got cough". Ha ha.
Have a pleasant week and keep a song in your heart, Lee.

Nice blog you got right here... I enjoyed reading your posts. I'm sure I'll visit here more often. Anyway, if you are interested, you can take a look at these amazing French macaroons and Almond macaroon cookies I've been trying to make.. It's very hard though... :) If you know how to make these, maybe you could give me some tips. Thanks!
