I’ve never really thought about how I keep my family healthy during the cold and flu season. We just do, you know? It all boils down to being practical and doing the things that we do year-round to stay healthy:
- Washing hands well and often
- Covering mouths and noses when coughing or sneezing
- Eating right and taking vitamins
- Staying hydrated
When we do feel colds coming on, I like to keep the medicine basket stocked with Vitamin C, zinc, and homeopathics. I started coming down with a cold right before traveling to Louisville a couple months ago and the homeopathic cold medicine I took helped reduce my symptoms and keep the cold from really bringing me down. This was impressive considering I was trapped on a bus for nine hours and staying in a strange place! Add to that the stress of traveling with an infant, and I probably should have been knocked on my rear with that cold.
Boiron Homeopathics is offering you all a $1 off coupon! They just came out with three new children’s products just in time for the cold & flu season:
New to help parents are Children’s Oscillococcinum to nip flu-like symptoms in the bud and Children’s Coldcalm Pellets, a multi-symptom cold reliever. Along with Children’s Chestal for all types of coughs, these homeopathic medicines work safely and naturally without causing side effects and they won’t interact with other medications. They do not contain any of the ingredients questioned by the FDA for use in young children. All three are sweet-tasting and kid-friendly. All three are from Boiron, world leader in homeopathy and maker of Oscillococcinum®, which has been relied upon by families around the world for more than 65 years.
Stay healthy, y’all.
