Boiron USA - Natural Cold Medicine Giveaway

Boiron USA sent me a value pack of cold medicine. This included:

1. Chestal Honey (Cough Syrup).

2. Coldcalm (Quick dissolving cold tablets)

3. Oscillococciunum (Flu)

Each product does not cause drowsiness and has no drug interactions. Natural cold remedies should be used to catch the sickness before it takes root in the body. At the first sign of sickness, one should immediately begin taking the cold medicine.

How it worked for me:

I received this product several weeks ago. I was waiting to get sick. (smiles) Finally, I had a minor sore throat. I started using the "Coldcalm" tablets. These have no real taste. The tablets dissolve easily within a matter of seconds, so there is no need to worry about swallowing a heavy pill. I faithfully watched the clock and took the pills in 15 minute intervals for 2 hours and then continued with the remedy for the rest of the morning.  Thankfully, my sore throat did not get any worse. My 16 year old daughter had just gotten over strep throat so I had been worried I would catch it from her. However, my throat got a little better but did not entirely improve for a few days. I had no real discomfort and am happy to report no ill effects from the medicine.

I am a follower and would like to be entered in the giveaway! =) I'm just now getting into homeopathics, and although I love the health benefits, it's a little tougher on the budget than the regular walmart drugs.. =) I'm all for free samples. P.S. My favorite winter remedy so far, (and my daughters') is once we feel a cold coming on to eat a few cloves of fresh garlic. It burns! so after cutting them up we take a small bite, take a sip of water, then chew a little, then swallow! We've done it a few times the first few days of a cold, and the cold always "reverses"! =)

One of my best remedies for anything cough related is a spoonful of honey with thyme sprinkled on top. Someone told me years ago while I had pneumonia about it and it really helped me breathe. Now everytime I get a cough I start taking it.
