As I have gotten older, I am more concerned about everything I put in my body, including medicine. I tend to be sensitive to a lot of medicines and have side effects. In addition, the couple times I have given my children some medicines, I ended up throwing them out due to side effects. I have started learning more and more about home remedies and homeopathic medicine. I was excited to learn about Boiron. Boiron offers homeopathic medicines for a variety of common ailments.
I know some of my readers are probably wondering just what homeopathic medicines are. Homeopathic medicines are “therapeutically active micro-doses of mineral, botanical and biological substances. They are reliable and safe drugs.” (as taken from the Boiron Website)
Homeopathic medications have been around for more than 200 years with a great safety record. And, since 1938, homeopathic medicines have been regulated as drugs by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) (Boiron website).
Boiron is a world leader in homeopathy and has been around for more than 65 years. They offer more than 800 homeopathic medicines that are approved by the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of United States (HPUS). According to Boiron, “They have no known side effects including drowsiness. Nor do they interact with other medication or contraindicate pre-existing conditions.”
I received a Boiron Value Pack for review. And it came at the perfect time. My 6-year old had just a tad of a cough, that mainly bothered her at night. You know, the dry, hacky cough. The night before, I heard her up coughing several times and in the morning, she complained about it. Normally, I would not give her anything as I am wary of cough medicines for children. That night, she started to cough and I gave her some Boiron Chestal Honey. I don’t exactly know what all the ingredients are, which is typical when I look at medicine bottles, but I did feel great comfort when there were no side effects listed and figured it was worth a shot. We gave her one teaspoon and didn’t hear from her the rest of the night. In the morning, she said, “Mommy, that medicine you gave me worked.” And guess what? With no side effects!
Like I said, I was excited to get this and am even more excited that it had results with my daughter. If you are interested in purchasing Boiron, you can visit their website at http://www.boironusa.com/ or check your local pharmacy. However, they have been so kind to offer a Value Pack to one of my lucky readers.
