It is Flu Season in the Tri-State. With that said, here is the remedy that you NEED if you are hit with the flu.

I know this year has been a little different for several reasons. One in particular is COVID. Everyone assumes that if someone is showing flu-like symptoms, they have the 'vid. In reality, that's not the case. The flu virus didn't take the year off because of COVID. That being said, if you do come down with the flu, there's one remedy that people have been swearing by for a few years now.

Sambucol Homeopathic Cold & Flu Relief as well as Boiron Oscillococcinum are two over-the-counter medications that you should try if you have the flu. It really works! I have used them in the past, and felt much better.

Oscillococcinum is also homeopathic, non-drowsy, and works with your body to reduce the duration and severity of flu symptoms. It’s best to take when you first start feeling sick to temporarily relieve body-aches, headache, fever, chills, and fatigue. The best part about these capsules is that they have no taste! Oscillococcinum is safe for children ages 2 and up.

In conjunction with taking Oscillococcinum, you'll want to also take Sambucol. This over-the-counter medication is also homeopathic and non-drowsy. It is made from Black Elderberry and Zinc and it's goal is to help boost your immune system when you're sick.  Sambucol is safe for the entire family and comes in several forms such as quick dissolve tablets, gummies, syrup, regular tablets, and lozenges.

These medications usually sell out quick during flu season. It might be a wise idea to stock up on these before they sell out everywhere like they did last year. You might want to call your local pharmacy to see if they have the two products in stock so you don't have to drive all over the Tri-State.

Like I said, the products have worked for me in the past, and I hope they help you too!
