Oscillococcinum For Flu Symptom Relief

One of the biggest reasons I hate the winter season is sickness.I hate to be sick,and it's even worse when the kids are sick too.I can't lay around and sleep,I have to get them up,make breakfast,get them ready for school and out the door before 8am.By then the husband is strolling in from work and saying how hungry he is while I am trying to take a quick nap before Reagan gets up to start her homeschooling lessons.Of course this ends with me getting breakfast for the three of us before he goes to bed and we start our day.Doing this all with a headache,cough and runny nose is more than I want to deal with some days and I just turn off the alarm and take the day off.I can't do this every time,or the kids would miss way too much school,so having something that helps is a huge plus.

I haven't been sick recently,but my husband started feeling bad one night and I told him to try the homeopathic Oscillococcinum I was just sent for review.I know that's a long one,but they call it Oscillo and so will I in this post.Created by Boiron,this is said to have no side effects,no drug interactions and works naturally with your body.Designed to treat body aches,headaches,fever,chills and fatigue,simply pop open the tube,pour the pellets in your mouth and let them dissolve.Each package contains 6 tubes for quick and easy dosage.These are intended for adults and children over two,so you can use them for almost anyone in the family.

He agreed to try it and took a total of 3 doses in about a day and a half.It says every six hours but he would forget and ended up taking them about every 12 instead.By the end of the second day he was feeling better and didn't need anything else.I was surprised by this,usually it takes a few days to get rid of the flu or those annoying viruses the kids bring home from school.We  haven't had to use Oscillo again,but I plan to try it the next time someone gets a headache,fever,or a case of the ick to try and stop it before it gets started.
