Taking Ice Cream as Cough Remedy

Have a cough? What will you do in case you really have? Rest is the least priority – need to work to earn some. Perhaps taking cough medicine is the first action.

Which medicine will you choose? Dahon (leaf) or the One?

The One refers to advertiser itself, the Solmux. It is being endorsed by Bossing Vic. The advantage of “The One” is fast acting cure – less waiting time. Fast acting cure is their claim.

On the other hand, dahon is none other than lagundi herbal cough medicine. This natural remedy is proven effective and recognized by the Department of Health (DOH). Some drug companies are commercializing it as syrup and capsule. Popular brands are Flemex and Ascof. They are true competitors.

Mom chose none of the above. She never take any cough syrup and any herbal medicine. She is taking a food that is not meant to be a cure. She is eating ice cream everytime she have a cough. I have not tried it but it really works for her every time.

  1. that is so true. my girlfriend knows which kind of cough she has. she knows when to take meds. and she knows when to take antibiotic. for cough that seems dry without mucous, and seems to not go away even after taking all the prescribed medicine. she eats ice cream. then the next morning cough cured right away!!!. i tried to ask her whats her belief in that. she told me that shes workin in a callcenter and her body is used to cool environment.. when she needs to go out or time to go home her body temperature changes to warm to hot maybe because of the tropical weather. or the sunlight heat. she always catches cough. cough that wont go away. she told me that shes coughing because of the temp. stucked in her throat its like cool/warm is fighting for a place in there. that she needed to eat ice cream as trial and error. if its just temperature it will go awa but if her cough turned to have mucous then its an infection. she needs to take antibiotic. i was like WHAAATT??WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT ARE YOU AN ALIEN??

    2 weeks ago i had this very bad cough dry one. i took meds for allergy. she made me use her nebulizer i cant breathe enough because the cough is so bad. i fell asleep after an hour i had a cough attack. meds didnt work. the next morning we went to a doctor for prescription. the doctor gave me meds for allergy test for 2 weeks. nothing works. my gf asked me to eat ice cream and it took me 3 more days to be convinced. we got an ice crem from 711 then ate i cup. i never cough the whole night. until morning. and i guess im cured.

  2. I should have just bought that ice cream last night. I was afraid it would make my cough and colds worse so I didn’t buy one. 🙁
