What important events will you miss this cough, cold and flu season while you’re feeling foggy or miserable or maybe having to take care of a sick little one? Probably quite a few since adults average two to four colds per year while children experience as many as 10 per year!
Simple proactive steps such as frequent hand washing can make a difference, but few know what to do at the first sign of symptoms. Many wait until they are “sick enough” to use a conventional medicine 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.
As a general rule, homeopathic medicines should 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.
For instance, Oscillococcinum® works best when you first start feeling achy or run down. Clinical studies show that Oscillo® reduces the severity and duration of flu symptoms when taken at the onset and it’s supported by more than 75 years of use throughout the world. Its sweet-tasting, kid-friendly, melt-away pellets dissolve quickly under the tongue. No water, chewing or swallowing is required. There are no side effects or interactions with other medications and it’s safe for children 2 years of age and older.
Experiencing a cold rather than the flu? Coldcalm addresses multiple symptoms at each stage of the cold-from beginning to end. Try the melt-away tablets for adults and sweet quick-dissolving pellets for children at the first sign of symptoms. They are safe for everyone 3 years of age and older.
To complete your medicine cabinet, Chestal® and Children’s Chestal® offer an economical multi-cough formula. First, the natural goodness of honey instantly coats and soothes the throat. Then, the blend of safe homeopathic medicines set to work loosening chest congestion. Instead of working against the body as a suppressant, Chestal works naturally with the body to improve the productivity of most common coughs. It soothes those dry, fitful coughs at bedtime so they don’t prevent sleep, but without drowsy side effects for the day. They contain no artificial flavors or colors so kids will like the honey taste! Chestal is safe for use in everyone 2 years of age and older.
Best of all, these 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.
