With the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) evaluating the safety and efficacy of many name brand, over-the-counter children's cough and cold medications, parents may feel at a loss for how to treat the symptoms of their children's cold and flu symptoms.
Hyland's, Inc. is pleased to offer several safe, all-natural and effective options to these parents. Hyland's Sniffles 'n Sneezes 4 Kids and C-Plus Cold Tablets are both specially formulated for use by children. None of the Hyland's homeopathic medicines use the active ingredients of concern to the FDA.
"The basic idea is that homeopathic remedies are made from natural sources rather than synthetic drugs and have a 200-year track record of safety in widespread use for children and adults worldwide," said Iris Bell, MD, PhD, Hyland's Director of Scientific Affairs.
In a conference call with journalists on Wednesday, Tim Fior, MD, DHt, said, "I treat children with coughs and colds on a daily basis, especially in the fall. What I have found over the last 20 years of practice is that homeopathic remedies are a very safe and effective way of treating children with these kinds of problems." In fact, according to Dr. Fior, he has observed that when homeopathy is used to provide relief for recurrent cough and cold symptoms, he has seen a decrease in the severity of symptoms over time.
The additional advantages of homeopathic medicines, according to Dr. Fior, is that they are available over-the-counter, are affordable and are very conducive to self-care, particularly if symptoms hit in the middle of the night.
The active ingredient in Hyland's Sniffles 'n Sneezes 4 Kids, zinc gluconate, has been clinically proven to shorten the duration of colds by nearly half.
All of Hyland's cold products offer children relief from the uncomfortable symptoms of the common cold, such as sneezing, sore throat, runny nose and headache.
Hyland's unique quick dissolving tablets are easy to administer to young children and have a wide margin of safety, giving parents peace of mind by eliminating any dosage worries.
Hyland's Sniffles 'n Sneezes 4 Kids and C-Plus Cold Tablets are available online here and at grocery and drug stores nationwide, and select independent drug and natural foods stores.
