One homeopathic flu medicine is used most often around the world—Oscillococcinum. Learn what symptoms it addresses, when to take it and why people like it.
Used in more than 50 countries around the world, Oscillo is the best-selling over-the-counter product in the cough/cold/flu category and a top ten selling brand in French pharmacies. French native Christophe Merville, D.Pharm, the director of education and pharmacy development at Boiron USA, explains how living through the 1918 Spanish flu led Dr. Joseph Roy to study how flu originates and spreads. Dr. Roy’s Oscillococcinum was first sold on the French market in 1944 and was eventually purchased by Boiron in 1967. Oscillo was introduced in the U.S. in 1984, shortly before it underwent a double-blind, placebo-controlled study published in a British scientific journal in 1989.
Gary Kracoff, NMD, R.Ph., and physicians Vincent Pedre and Lauren Feder share results they’ve seen using Oscillo and how taking action against crucial early symptoms can help get you back to what’s important. Nancy Peplinsky, a mother of two boys and founder of the Holistic Moms Network, shares how discovering Oscillo inspired her to learn more about using homeopathy to care for her family.
