The kids are ready to head back to school. But are you? Make sure your medicine cabinet is fully stocked for the unofficial start of the cold and flu season, which happens to coincide with the beginning of the school year. Colds and flu can sideline the whole family. When kids miss school because of illness, parents have to take off from work to care for them. To nip cold and flu symptoms in the bud, here are three homeopathic necessities for the family medicine cabinet.
Children’s Chestal Honey: With a sweet honey base, the kid-friendly taste of Children’s Chestal Honey offers a no-fuss way to relieve all types of common coughs. Instead of suppressing the cough, Children’s Chestal helps loosen phlegm and thin bronchial secretions to make coughs more productive. Free of artificial colors and flavors, 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.* This cough syrup is non-habit forming and non-drowsy, and 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 helps relieve flu-like symptoms without drowsiness or any known drug interactions. The sweet-tasting pellets makes Oscillo 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 offer multi-symptom relief for sneezing, runny nose, nasal congestion, and minor sore throat.* The tasty, melt-away pellets are ideal for children 3 years of age and older. No water, chewing, or swallowing is required.
