Boiron Oscillococcinum and Chestal For Children Cough Syrup Review & -Rafflecopter- Giveaway -- ENDED

"Nip Flu-like Symptoms at the First Sign
Flu is highly contagious and can put you out of commission for more than a week. There is no “cure” for the flu, but the key is to relieve symptoms that make us so miserable at the first sign. Oscillococcinum, or Oscillo for short, may be difficult to pronounce, but it’s a must-have during flu season. The moment you start to feel achy or run down is when Oscillo can start working naturally with your body to relieve flu-like symptoms, such as fatigue, headache, body aches, chills and fever. Oscillo has been shown in clinical studies to help reduce both the severity and the duration of flu-like symptoms, helping you feel like yourself again. In one recent study published in a British scientific journal, nearly 63 percent of patients who took Oscillo within 24 hours of the onset of symptoms showed a “clear improvement” or “complete resolution” in as fast as 48 hours. Oscillo has no side effects and is packaged in individual doses, so it’s easy to carry with you and take as you need it. It’s sweet-tasting, melt-away pellets dissolve quickly under the tongue and require no water, chewing, or swallowing, and it’s safe for ages two and up."
"Relieve Your Child’s Cough Naturally and Safely, Without Drowsiness or Sleeplessness
 If the common cough is an inevitable part of your child’s winter repertoire, then Children’s Chestal cough syrup should have a permanent position in your home. With no artificial flavors or colors, this honey-based cough syrup is one of the safest and tastiest options for relieving all types of common coughs. Safe for children ages two and up, this non-drowsy medicine works by coating the throat with the sweet, natural goodness of honey, temporarily soothing throat irritation, while its blend of safe homeopathic medicines loosens chest congestion, thereby making coughs more productive for a speedier recovery. Children’s Chestal can be your little one’s day and night cough solution—calming those dry, fitful coughs that can prevent sleep at bedtime, but without the drowsy side effects that can hamper an active child’s day. In addition to being safe and non-drowsy, Children’s Chestal is also dye-free with no drug interactions."


I hope you all got to spend the holiday season healthy and happy. Around this time last year I was sick with a cold for months. I was pregnant with baby G and I just could not fight off the cold. I would get better and then catch another cold just a few days later. This year, our entire family was healthy and flu/cold free. Sadly, for many of our friends and their kids, this was not the case. The holiday season was difficult for those with sick kids. Since DD is in kindergarten, she actually gets sick pretty often. It seems that it just takes one kid to be sick in her classroom and then the rest of them will get sick is just a couple of days. To combat the flu and cold season, we always have cough medicine for the entire family on hand. New in our medicine cabinet are Chestal For Children Cough Syrup and Oscillococcinum by Boiron. I am not an medical expert so I can not tell you if these medication worked better than the other brands. But what I can tell you about them is that after trying these the last time we were sick, we liked that they did not make us drowsy. We also like that they are safe for kids over the age of 2 years old to take. When I had the flu a couple of months ago, I noticed that after using the product, my body did not ach as much.

If you have young kids at home and you are finding yourself getting sick more frequently that usual because your kids are bringing germs and other kids' colds home to you (like ours' did), then I would recommend keeping plenty of cold and flu medicine on hand so that you don't have to late night drug store runs.
