Tis the Season

Thats right tis the season, but not for the holidays, for the cold and flu to strike.  Here at our house the cold is already making its move to attack.  Holden got it but I have managed to keep teh rest of us healthy, how is that you ask.

Well when the cold hits i double time it with the lysol wipes.  I make sure that like 4 times a day I wipe down everything with the wipes, currently it is just Holden sick so he does not walk yet so I only have to worry about me touching him and then touching stuff.  Which brings me to method 2, I ensure I was my hands like a million times a day and if i cannot get to water I use purell.  When we go places I have some lysol wipes that I use to wipe down shopping carts, I may look weird but I know my family will be healthy.  For the older kids I start giving them extra vitamin C a day and flintstones vitamins for Maddisyn to ensure their immune system can stave off a cold better. 

For the flu it is the same practise, keep everything clean and wiped down and try to minimize germ transfer.  My kids are taught not to touch their face or mouth until they have washed their hands and we wash everything down.  I have a super immune system and in 27 years have only had the flu twice, my husband on the other hand gets it everytime anyone else does which generally leaves me caring for a houseful of vomiting, whining people.

I am hesitant to use cold medicines with my children such as tylenol or the like because I don’t like some risks that medicine give.  Thanks to One2One network though I have found homeopathic medicines to treat cold and flu which I am excited to get and give a try when my crew does get sick because I feel no matter how much i try they can still pick it up from school or cubs or swimming or friends.

 What is Homeopathy?

  •  Homeopathy is a therapeutic method used to help the body rebalance and heal itself.
  • It uses natural substances in micro-doses.
  • Homeopathic medicines are used to treat many conditions, such as allergies, flu-like symptoms, cough and cold, pre-menstrual syndrome, arthritic pain, etc.

What are the benefits?

  • Work safely and naturally without side effects or drug interactions.
  • Does not contain any of the ingredients questioned by the FDA for use in young children.
  • No risks of overdosing.
  • Children’s Oscillococcinum and Children’s Coldcalm Pellets are sweet-tasting, kid-friendly, melt-aways that dissolve quickly . No water, chewing or swallowing is required. Sweet Children’s Chestal uses the natural goodness of honey as a base to instantly coat and soothe the throat.
  • For more than 65 years, Oscillococcinum has worked naturally to reduce both the duration and the severity of flu and flu-like symptoms. Now Children’s Oscillococcinum is available to nip these symptoms in the bud. Like Oscillo it should be taken at the first sign of feeling achy or rundown with fever or chills.
  • While many cold medicines treat only a symptom or two, newly launched Children’s Coldcalm Pellets is a complete multi-symptom cold reliever for sneezing, runny nose, nasal congestion and minor sore throat pain.
  • Children’s Chestal cough syrups simplify the process of choosing a cough medicine by creating an economical all-in-one formula to relieve all types of coughs due to minor throat and bronchial irritation that may occur with a cold. This multi-cough option relieves coughs as well as loosens chest congestion
  • Children’s Oscillococcinum and Children’s Chestal are for children older than 2; Children’s Coldcalm Pellets is for children older than 3.

Where can they be purchased?

  • Parents should prepare by stocking the family medicine cabinet since Children’s Oscillococcinum works best at the first sign of symptoms to nip flu in the bud and avoid getting caught without comforting medicine when a child becomes ill in the middle of the night. All Boiron medicines can conveniently be picked up without a prescription.
  • Most natural food stores and major retail drug chains such as CVS, Rite Aid, Walgreens, and many others
  • Store Finder
  • Online & Mail Order Store Finder
