The dreaded cold and flu season is here…again, so this year, why not take a vow to use solutions that work naturally with your body. Make sure your medicine cabinet is equipped with medicines such as Oscillococcinum® (Oscillo®) and Children’s Chestal®, both from Boiron, world leader in homeopathic medicines.
Flu is highly contagious and can put you out of commission for more than a week. There is no “cure” for the flu, but the key is to relieve symptoms that make us so miserable at the first sign. Oscillococcinum, or Oscillo for short, may be difficult to pronounce, but it’s a must-have during flu season. The moment you start to feel achy or run down is when Oscillo can start working naturally with your body to relieve flu-like symptoms, such as fatigue, headache, body aches, chills and fever. Oscillo has been shown in clinical studies to help reduce both the severity and the duration of flu-like symptoms, helping you feel like yourself again. In one recent study published in a British scientific journal, nearly 63 percent of patients who took Oscillo within 24 hours of the onset of symptoms showed a “clear improvement” or “complete resolution” in as fast as 48 hours. Oscillo has no side effects and is packaged in individual doses, so it’s easy to carry with you and take as you need it. It’s sweet-tasting, melt-away pellets dissolve quickly under the tongue and require no water, chewing, or swallowing, and it’s safe for ages two and up.
Children’s Chestal -
If the common cough is an inevitable part of your child’s winter repertoire, then Children’s Chestal cough syrup should have a permanent position in your home. With no artificial flavors or colors, this honey-based cough syrup is one of the safest and tastiest options for relieving all types of common coughs. Safe for children ages two and up, this non-drowsy medicine works by coating the throat with the sweet, natural goodness of honey, temporarily soothing throat irritation, while its blend of safe homeopathic medicines loosens chest congestion, thereby making coughs more productive for a speedier recovery. Children’s Chestal can be your little one’s day and night cough solution—calming those dry, fitful coughs that can prevent sleep at bedtime, but without the drowsy side effects that can hamper an active child’s day. In addition to being safe and non-drowsy, Children’s Chestal is also dye-free with no drug interactions.
I have been a huge fan of Oscillococcinum since I heard about it 10 years ago. I took it over this weekend while we were out of town, and I felt better in no time! It tastes good, is 100% natural and doesn’t have any side effects. What more can I ask for? The Children’s Chestal was great too. Two of my kids cough almost non-stop during the winter months. I have been giving them a teaspoon of the Chestal before putting them down, and it has helped so much! They still cough every once in a while, but not nearly as bad as it was. I would recommend both of these products to anyone who wants to feel a little better this winter season!
Oscillo and Children’s Chestal are available at Walgreens, CVS, Whole Foods and local health food stores.
