Oscillococcinum is another tool in our toolbox that we have on hand, particularly in the winter time. If we know we’ve been exposed to the flu, we use it prophylactically (half of a tube). It’s a safe, homeopathic remedy for flu symptoms and can reduce the length of time you have the flu. We dose it with elderberry syrup, among our other immune supporting supplements. When sick we also work to eliminate sugar and processed foods since simple carbohydrates and sugar are essentially poison and won’t benefit our immune system.
From the oscillo.com manufacturer website:
Temporarily relieves flu-like symptoms such as body aches, headache, fever, chills and fatigue.
Adults and children 2 years of age and older: Dissolve entire contents of one tube in the mouth every 6 hours, up to 3 times a day.
Children under 2 years of age: Ask a doctor.
