Boiron Launches New Podcast Series: “Tackling the Flu, Naturally”
This winter, learn how to better navigate you and your family through the annual flu outbreak with our new podcast series, “Tackling the Flu, Naturally.” Hosted by Peggy O’Mara, the former editor and publisher of Mothering magazine, this four-part series interviews physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and the founder of the Holistic Moms Network to help explain how the flu virus works, how it’s spread, when to keep kids home from school, top natural symptom relievers, and much more.
In our first episode, “Discovering Homeopathy,” learn how homeopathy can be useful for a healthy life. Gary Kracoff, NMD, R.Ph., explains why becoming a parent was the turning point for him to explore more naturally-working solutions. And even though the parents of her little patients aren’t against antihistamines, decongestants, etc., Lauren Feder, MD, describes why they value homeopathic medicines as a first line defense for self-treatable conditions.
Practical basics for you and your family are provided in this 12-minute podcast, including the principle and benefits, what types of conditions can and cannot be relieved by homeopathy, and how the medicines are best used at the onset of symptoms. Learn about common misconceptions, like how these over-the-counter drugs are produced and regulated differently than supplements. The episode wraps up with a look at homeopathy’s roots dating back to 1790 in Germany.
