Newtown Square, Pa. – Experts agree that the sooner cold and flu symptoms are treated, the better chance there is for a quick recovery and minimum disruption of lifestyle. Yet people hesitate to take action at the crucial early stage. Typically, they wait until they are “sick enough” to take medications that simply mask full-blown symptoms.
“I see it all the time,” says Robert Schiller, M.D., department chairman of Family Medicine at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York City. “Patients take great proactive steps like washing their hands frequently and taking a multivitamin. They don’t know what to do, though, when they start to get sick. They wait until their condition gets so bad that they can’t sleep at night or function during the day, so they have nothing to lose by taking something that will put them in a fog.”
Instead of waiting to mask symptoms, the key is to start with a medicine like Oscillococcinum® that nips symptoms in the bud. Oscillo® is a homeopathic medicine that works with the body to help it rebalance and heal itself.
Clinical studies show that Oscillo helps reduce both the severity and the duration of flu-like symptoms. In fact, when patients took Oscillo within 24 hours of the onset of symptoms, nearly 63 percent showed “clear improvement” or “complete resolution” within 48 hours, according to the latest study published in a British scientific journal.
Since it doesn’t cause drowsiness or interact with other medications or supplements, there’s no reason to delay taking Oscillococcinum at the moment you feel achy and run down with headache, chills and fever. Its sweet-tasting pellets dissolve quickly under the tongue and are recommended for everyone, from two-year-olds to seniors.
To be prepared to act quickly at the first sign of symptoms, consumers can conveniently pick up Oscillo without a prescription. For more information on Oscillococcinum, call Boiron at 1-800-BOIRON-1 (1-800-264-7661) or e-mail [email protected].
