To help parents who wonder how to ease their children’s flu-like symptoms without using suppressants, decongestants and antihistamines, Boiron has created Children’s Oscillococcinum for flu-like symptoms.
Considered one of the safest choices for self-treatment, the active ingredients in homeopathic medicines have no reported side effects, such as making children jittery or drowsy. They do not interact with other medications, herbs or supplements, nor do they mask symptoms that may indicate a more serious condition. The active ingredients are micro-doses of natural ingredients and, most importantly, Boiron’s products do not contain any of the ingredients questioned by the FDA for use in youngsters, i.e., suppressants, decongestants and antihistamines. And because they are not body-mass dependent, there’s no risk of overdose.
“They work in a different way,” says the Los Angeles-based Lauren Feder, M.D., author of Natural Baby and Childcare (Hatherleigh Press, 2006). “The principle is that the body knows what to do best for itself. Rather than suppressing symptoms, these medicines work with the body by sending it a signal to help rebalance and heal itself.”
Dr. Feder, whose general practice consists primarily of children, says it is not dangerous to combine homeopathic medicines with other substances in case parents decided to administer a cough syrup on top of a flu medicine.
Supported by clinical studies and a long history of safety, Oscillo® has helped people of all ages reduce both the severity and duration of flu symptoms for 65 years in France and 25 years in the U.S.
Children’s Oscillococcinum’s new packaging highlights its great-tasting, easy-to-take pellets that dissolve quickly under the tongue without water, chewing or swallowing. Each dose is packaged individually in a compact and portable plastic tube, making it convenient to take on the go and easy to keep handy. Oscillo works best when taken at the first sign of flu-like symptoms, and because Oscillo is safe, there is no reason to hesitate taking it.
All Boiron products are regulated as drugs by the FDA5 and are clearly labeled for specific indications, making directions easy for parents to understand. They are manufactured according to the highest standards, complying with drug Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) and the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States (HPUS).
