{GIVEAWAY} Fall into FALL with Boiron Homeopathic Remedies

September 2, 2014

Nothing makes me happier than being able to spread the word on healthier solutions to typical, everyday health issues and for typical, everyday people. Think: colds, flu, low energy, anxiety, inflammation, or irritation.

Now, I think most of the above health issues have deeper, root causes.  For example, low energy can be linked to digestive issues.  Colds and flu’s can be linked to low immunity and anxiety can be linked to food allergies.

But, in any event, what is most important are the options you have to find immediate relief. At the same time, the safest relief with the least amount of toxic ingredients, especially for those of you that have children.

In June, I found myself with a head cold. It is very unusual for me to get sick and I don’t know what to do with myself when I do.  I needed some immediate relief to my stuffiness and as you know, when you’re stuffy, sleep is nearly impossible.  I posted this picture on Instagram when I was amazed by the immediate relief of Boiron’s Sinusalia.  Shockingly, once I took a couple of tablets that dissolved under my tongue, I found immediate relief.  I just couldn’t believe it.  Normal over-the-counter medications taste awful, have toxic ingredients in them and often, do not work. So what makes homeopathic remedies, like Boiron, different?

Homeopathic medicine is an alternative medical system that was developed in Germany more than 200 years ago.  This medicine system uses pills or liquid mixtures containing only a little of an active ingredient that is usually from a plant or mineral for treatment. There are two theories from the homeopathic medicine system: “like cures like”—the idea that a disease can be cured by a substance that produces similar symptoms in healthy people; and “law of minimum dose”—the idea that the lower the dose of the medication, the greater its effectiveness. It’s a science using remedies from mother-earth herself and a much safer choice than your over-the-counter products.

Boiron is regulated here in Canada making it safe to use.  They also have a children’s line of remedies making it safe to use on your little ones too! Although I was relatively healthy when I received my generous package from Justine at Boiron Canada, I found the Cicadermine very effective for the inside of my nose which was irritated by the dry weather we were having in Vancouver. The Oscillococcinum, a very popular remedy, I used when I was feeling lethargic and a possible flu coming on.  I took two dosages and was perfectly fine.  And, I’ve always been a fan of the Arnica line, also very popular and effective for joint and muscle pain.

With the little one’s going back to school and the Fall and Winter quickly upon on us, it’s important to get ourselves prepared! Boiron Canada has offered one lucky reader a Boiron prize pack equipped to keep you and your family healthy through the fall and winter. Here is what is included:

Sédatil // Coryzalia // Stodal Honey // Oscillococcinum // Cicadermine // Arnicare
