Preparing Your Medicine Cabinet for Back to School
The start of a new school year, unfortunately beckons in the start of cold and flu season. When sickness hits the household it can make things a little hectic, with not only missed school days for the little ones but days out of work for mom and dad. To help you quickly nip symptoms in the bud, here’s a list of three homeopathic must-haves for your family medicine cabinet.
Children’s Chestal — With a sweet honey base, Children’s Chestal’s kid-friendly taste offers a no fuss way to relieve all types of common coughs. Unlike many cough medicines, Children’s Chestal doesn’t suppress the cough, instead it helps loosen phlegm and thin bronchial secretion to make coughs more productive. Free of artificial colors, flavors and phenylpropanolamine, Chestal helps relieve coughs due to minor throat and bronchial irritation that may occur with a cold, including dry, wet, croupy, night and day coughs. * Its non-habit forming and non-drowsy formula makes it gentle enough for children 2 years of age and older.
Oscillococcinum —The flu can be particularly debilitating for young children and older adults. To help your child feel like themselves faster, stock up on Oscillococcinum to reduce both the duration and severity of flu-like symptoms.* Oscillo’s natural active ingredient works to quickly nip flu-like symptoms in the bud without drowsiness or any known drug interactions. Its sweet-tasting pellets, makes it the go-to option for children 2 years old and up.
Children’s Coldcalm Pellets —While many cold medicines treat only a symptom or two, Children’s Coldcalm Pellets offers multi-symptom relief for sneezing, runny nose, nasal congestion and minor sore throat.* Its tasty, melt-away pellets is ideal for children 3 years of age and older. No water, chewing or swallowing is required.
