Oscillococcinum should be your first line of defense against symptoms of flu such as fever, chills, body aches and pains. Oscillococcinum (o-sill-o-cox-see-num) is safe, natural and easy to take. It is the #1 doctor recommended homeopathic flu remedy and it is used by millions of people in more than 40 countries around the world. Oscillococcinum will not mask symptoms of an underlying serious condition and can be used safely by those with heart disease, high blood pressure, glaucoma, thyroid disease, kidney disorders or asthma and cannot use antihistamine or decongestant medications.
Because of its safety, Oscillococcinum is an excellent choice for children. Under the supervision of a physician, pregnant women and infants can also use Oscillococcinum. Oscillococcinum is the #1 over the counter (OTC) flu medicine in France and it is the #1 homeopathic flu medicine in the U.S. Oscillococcinum works by stimulating your body’s own natural defenses. It works best at the onset of symptoms, when your body has more resources to react. In recent clinical studies, 63% of patients treated with Oscillococcinum showed clear improvement in 48 hours.
