Water as Medicine

I like to maintain health in a natural way, and I found that listening with an open mind can give a desired result from a surprise source.

When my son was around two or three years old, he was coughing in autumn. Like any other first-time parent, I rushed to the doctor with him and bought back home a prescription. But no matter how hard we tried, my son simply spit out the medicine or the food with medicine. What could we do?

One day, when I picked up my son from kindergarten, his teacher said, “Let him drink more water.” Grasping at straws, I asked my son to drink one mouthful of water for one cough. It worked! I was relieved to see my son’s cough getting better and better by using water as medicine. From then on, water became medicine for my son’s cough, and it always worked. 

​Sometimes common sense can be a home remedy and is more useful than medicine. Every individual has their own unique life experience and culture, and the daily life wisdom that is passed down from direct experience is worth trying. At least for my son’s case, even though medicine might be advanced, it means nothing when we cannot put it in his mouth. Thus, never ignore the value of home remedies.
