Oscillococcinum is homeopathic medicine to help fight flu-like symptoms (such as fatigue, headache, body aches, chills and fever). It's easy to take with quick-dissolving pellets and non-drowsy.
If you are involved in homeopathy medicine, this may interest you. I go both ways and always searching for something that works for me and my family. I was pleasantly surprised at the effect that children's coldcalm (another Boiron product) had on my daughter when I reviewed it last year. When given the chance to review this medicine, I jumped at the chance.
Homeopathic medicines are therapeutically active micro-doses of mineral, botanical and biological substances. Used to treat many acute health conditions, these medicines are safe, natural, and have no side effects.I've been holding on to this waiting to get sick so that I can have a miracle story to share but that hasn't happened. Kind of like feeling fine once you get to the doctor :) Well, I still want to share this product with you readers, so will do so without the fanfare.
The package contains 6 doses. Each dose is a small capsule that contains little beads that dissolve in your mouth. Much like the coldcalm that I reviewed with the children, these little beads are sweet and so easy to take. It really is like eating candy, almost like those little cake topper pellets. Even though these aren't marketed as a children's medicine, they can be taken from age 2 and up so it's still safe for those kiddos.
The concept behind homeopathy medicine is not to conquer the sickness, but to build your body up to fight the sickness on it's own, more efficiently. For this reason, you should take this at the first sign of flu-symptoms.
