When my kids were sick last month, they were coughing. During the day, the coughing was bearable if I kept them hydrated, but when they got into bed at night, the coughing really gets started. I knew that Triaminic and other over-the-counter cough syrups were toxic. If you don't think it is toxic, read the ingredients and two pages of warning labels. The ingredients include: citric acid, edetate disodium, FD&C blue #1, FD&C red #40, flavors, glycerin, polyethylene glycol, purified water, sodium benzoate, sodium citrate, sorbitol, sucrose. Yuk!
So, I tried honey. It does work for about an hour and if they are not already asleep, they have a hard time getting there. (Keep in mind that my kids are over the age of 1, so honey is safe.)
Boiron's Children's Chestal w/ honey (homeopathic cough syrup). WOW, it actually works! Not only did both kids like the taste of it, they willingly took the meds. When they were coughing hard, they took the liquid meds and within 20 minutes, the coughing all but stopped. I couldn't believe it!
Knowing that I can give my kids medicine that works and is not toxic is super. I always felt guilty about letting them cough.
Not only is homeopathy a good solution for what ails you (because it is based specifically on you) but Boiron is a good company because they continually replenish the plants that they use and actually care about and try to protect the environment.
According to http://www.homeopathyworks.com/:
"Homeopathy is safe, effective, affordable, non-habit forming and comprehensive. It can be applied to both acute and chronic health problems with mental, emotional and physical symptoms. It is easily adaptable for self-care."
Sounds like a better option than all the carcinogenic meds on the shelves today...
