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.
