Natural Tips for the Cold, Flu and Allergy Season

Since the FDA restricted use of standard cold and flu meds for children, many parents are left wondering how to safely administer cough, cold and flu products to their children and themselves this winter. Antihistamines cause drowsiness and dry mouth while decongestants may act like a stimulant. Suppressing the cough interferes with the body's way of clearing the lungs, and these medications should be used sparingly, if at all.

Homeopathy and other forms of natural medicine are generally considered one of the safest choices for self-treatment. They do not contain any of the ingredients under question for use with youngsters that are commonly found in other over-the-counter (OTC) decongestants and antihistamines. Rather than suppressing symptoms, the natural medicines work with the body by sending it a signal to help rebalance itself.

See A-Z Conditions for more info about natural treatments of cold and flu.

To your good health,
