The WELLMan Recommends - April 2021


Pronounced Os-si-lo-cox-see-num, this homoeopathic remedy has become a household must-have during flu season.

The remedy has been used for more than 70 years. It is manufactured by Boiron Laboratories in France and available in 50 countries worldwide. 

How does Oscillococcinum work?

As a homoeopathic medicine, it optimises the immune system and prepares the body to fight flu- and flu-like symptoms without causing any side effects or contra-indications.

Homoeopathy is a therapeutic method that uses natural substances in micro-doses to relieve symptoms and assist the body to heal itself. 

Serial dilution is one of the core foundational practices of homoeopathy, with "succussion", or shaking, occurring between each dilution. In homoeopathy, serial dilutions (called potentisation) renders these substances free from harmful or undesirable elements.

Various double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical studies have been published and confirms that Oscillococcinum effectively reduces the duration and severity of flu-like symptoms such as body aches, headache, fever, chills, and fatigue.

How to use Oscillococcinum?

Oscillococcinum is available in unit doses with pellets the quickly dissolve in the mouth. No water, chewing or swallowing required.

 It can be used in two ways- as a remedy to assist the immune system before you get any flu symptoms where one dose is taken weekly, or with the onset of flu symptoms, one dose is to be taken every six hours.

The entire family can use Oscillococcinum due to its homoeopathic formulation, including children of all ages and the elderly.

 It can also be used by pregnant women.
