What important events will you miss this cold and flu season while you’re feeling foggy or fatigued or maybe having to take care of a sick little one? Probably quite a few since adults catch two to four colds per year on average while children can have as many as 10 per year!
Simple measures such as washing your hands often can make a difference, but how many moms know what to do at the first sign of symptoms? Will you wait until you or your children are “sick enough” to use a conventional medication because of its potential to cause side effects? Instead of waiting to mask your symptoms, you can try nipping them in the bud with a medicine from Boiron, world leader in homeopathic medicines.
Homeopathic medicines should generally be taken at the onset of symptoms. They offer safe, natural solutions without a doping effect or risk of drug interactions, so there is no need to wait to take action at the crucial early stages.
Oscillococcinum® works best when you first start feeling achy or run down. Clinical studies show Oscillo® reduces the severity and duration of flu symptoms when taken at the onset, and it’s supported by more than 80 years of use throughout the world. Its sweet-tasting, kid-friendly pellets dissolve quickly under the tongue. No water, chewing or swallowing is required. It won’t make you drowsy or cause hyperactivity, plus there are no drug interactions with other medications. It’s recommended for everyone 2 years of age and up.
Is it a cold rather than flu? Coldcalm® addresses multiple symptoms at every stage of a cold. Try the melt-away tablets for adults or the sweet-tasting, quick-dissolving pellets for children at the first sign of symptoms. Both forms are recommended for everyone 3 years of age and up.
To complete your medicine cabinet, Chestal® and Children’s Chestal® offer an economical multi-cough formula. The natural goodness of honey coats and soothes the throat, while the blend of homeopathic medicines loosens chest congestion. Instead of working against the body as a suppressant, Chestal works naturally with the body to improve the productivity of all types of common coughs. It soothes those dry, fitful coughs at bedtime so they don’t prevent sleep, but without causing drowsiness during the day. The syrup does not contain artificial flavors or colors, and kids will like the honey taste! Chestal is recommended for everyone 2 years of age and up.
Best of all, Boiron’s cold and flu medicines do not contain antihistamines or decongestants. To parents, that means they are free of ingredients questioned by the FDA for use in young children. For busy professionals who must remain alert, they won’t induce a drowsy, foggy feeling.
