Flu Season Homeopathic Meds for Children & Adults + A Giveaway

Nip Flu-like Symptoms at the First Sign
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.

Relieve Your Child’s Cough Naturally and Safely, Without Drowsiness or Sleeplessness
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.

The 411:
This is my second season using Oscillo and Chestal. Today in fact, my son had two doses of Chestal for a cough. The dose is low only 5 ml. His cough started this morning and I  hear it coming back so I guess I will be dosing him as soon as I am done with this post. Poor kid!

I am not one who likes to medicate unless necessary but feel very comfortable using Chestal on him. With its natural honey base and the fact that he doesn't get tired from it is often my first line of defense.

As for the Oscillococcinum we always have it in the cabinet but knock on wood, we have not had the flu. However, whenever we are feeling run down, weak, achy, start feeling that SICK feeling, we take a dose. It is easy to swallow and thankfully so far, so good.

Thanks to the powers that be, we are able to give away a Chestal to get you through the cold season. Here's to praying you don't have to use it but at least it will be in your medicine cabinet.
