Relieve Flu Symptoms Homeopathically with Oscillococcinum
It's a nasty flu year, and although there are many natural methods to prevent the flu, sometimes we simply succumb despite the best prevention attempts. I work at a school, which I think is one of the most dangerous places to work in terms of germs. Just yesterday, over half of the class was out with the flu. Monday, a little girl sneezed all over me. It is inevitable I will get sick.
I rely on homeopathy to treat my body. I trust it and find it more effective than over-the-counter medications full of chemicals and artificial dyes. For the flu, I turn to Oscillococcinum. According to the manufacturer Boiron:
Temporarily relieves flu-like symptoms such as fatigue, headache, body aches, chills and fever
- Adults and children 2 years of age and older: Dissolve entire contents of one tube in the mouth every 6 hours, up to 3 times a day.
- Children younger than 2 years of age: Ask a doctor.
I like using homeopathy with my children, as my son is very reticent about taking any medication, but these little pills do not bother him.
Naturally Savvy also recommends Oscillococcinum:
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.
