Also known as Oscillo, this homeopathic remedy can reduce flu-like symptoms such as body aches, headache, fever and chills. Begin taking at first signs of flu symptoms. One tube every 6 hours, 3x per day.
The earlier you start, the better. For children, you can dissolve the pellets in water and give them that way. Oscillococcinum is indicated for ages 2 and up. For children younger than 2, consult your trusted health care provider.
A common symptom of the flu is a high fever, which can lead to sweating (which is great and your body is doing what it was designed to do!). You might also be dealing with bouts of vomiting or diarrhea. Your body needs plenty of fluids to replace lost liquids, and even more to fight off the infection. Hydration through water, herbal tea, and bone broth are excellent choices. Avoid alcohol and caffeine.
Do not underestimate the power of rest for your body as it’s fighting illness. Go to bed early, sleep in, take naps if able.
Sleep is the ultimate healer.

High Dose Vitamin C

Vitamin C is very individualized as far as tolerance is concerned.
Each person has his or her unique saturation level. If you’re having loose stools, you’ve reached that level and can cut back a tad for your ideal dosing. We use C-Salts or @maryruthorganics Vitamin C liposomal or drops - discount code PARSONS15.
