I had never heard of this product. It sounds like it would be wonderful to use. I know I would love to shorten the duration of sickness. Thank you for introducing me to a new product.

Sara B. says …

I love homeopathy and I love how he assured people of its safety.

Caryn says …

With the latest recalls on children's cold medications it's nice to have something that children can take that is natural and appeals to them (they'll actually take it). I have never heard of this but I am a Whole Foods shopper and I will be looking for this next time I'm in the store.

Mary R says …

I have seen Oscillo at my local Whole Foods and I think I will pick some up next time for my grandkids with the cold season coming up! I really like these podcasts. Came here through Pinks & Blues.

Clarissa says …

That was very interesting. Thanks!

Mia says …

Thanks for the information in this podcast. Definitely will be stopping by Whole Foods to purchase some Oscillo.

Amanda says …

wow I am a big believer in this its great to know more people putting a spot light on it!

Margery Yeager says …

Thanks for the interesting info!

Marsha says …

I use some homeopathic products in our home, and I had heard of this product, but did not know the details. It is definitely a great idea for kids.

Cathy Lane says …

I agree with the rep from Oscillo. I have used this and other products from Boiron and they work very well. Oscillo is especially great if you take it right at the very first sign of a cold or flu.

veronica sandberg says …

I already use this wonderful product

Angela says …

I absoutely LOVE whole foods. I used to live across the street from your Minneapolis store and it was heaven.

Lisa Fosses says …

very informative

Janet Fricano says …

It sounds like a great product that I would like to try.

Kim Allen says …

Although there is still debate about if--and how well-Oscillo works, the fact that it has been promoted among the French medical community for over ten years must mean something. For years the European medical community has relied on homeopathic treatments, and the US has lagged far behind in being receptive to alternative therapies. I found this pocast to be very informative.

Laura Dickson says …

I am a Senior Citizen and I have always been told that I need a flu shot. However, I am really interested in holistic treatments and I am going to research this product further. Thank you for bringing it to my attention.

RYAN KELLY says …

Great podcast

aBookworm says …

My family has long been converted over to Homoepathy and we can vouch for the benefits of this unique medicine that can heal/cure with minimal to no side effects. What could be better?!

Debbie says …

My mother is considered a respiratory high risk patient and must take flu shots each year. I am wondering if it wouldn't be prudent for her to try Oscillo as well, since it is claimed to be safe even for those most at risk. I know that frequently, the flu shots being given each season are not actually effective against all strains. Oscillo might be a extra layer of prevention for my mom.

Matt says …

Wow, that was really interesting. It gives me a whole new perspective on things

Catherine Lee says …

Very interesting!! Thanks!

Anthony Hedden says …

great site.

Courtney says …

I have heard of it, but have not tried it. You have convinced me to get it. Thanks!

Kimberly Lynn says …

I highly recommend homeopathic treatments (and, especially Oscillo) for colds. They are definately not harsh on the body like conventional treatments. Also, look into Arnica for muscle pain and bruising... my family swears by it!

Sara B. says …

I really enjoyed this podcast. I'd never heard of Oscillo, but we're big fans of homeopathy.

Sara B. says …

I really enjoyed this podcast. I’d never heard of Oscillo, but we’re big fans of homeopathy. oops, I meant to leave "Pinks & Blues" in my website line above! Delete the above comment.

Tonya Martinez says …

I try to use as many Homeopathy remedies as possible. I love these podcasts as they are helping me learn about even more ways to keep my family healthy. The thought that my kids moght like how it tastes ... a definite plus.

CDuran says …

Very interesting. I was not familiar with Oscillo previously and am not intrigued by its possibilities. Thanks.

CDuran says …

I meant to say that I am "NOW" intrigued by its possibilities!

Susan says …

Interesting podcast on Oscillo. I plan on trying it soon. Thanks!

Sherry Timmerman says …

Thanks! Will check it out.

Cathy Lane says …

I have used Oscillo frequently. It is great to ward of colds. You do have to use it the moment you feel something coming on. It says it is for symptoms of colds and flus though, personally, I haven't had much luck with it once I was in the thick of a sickness. Thanks for the info. It was very interesting!

Brian E. says …

...an interesting adjunct to conventional healing.

Melissa Bryan says …

Excellent podcast!

Melissa Bryan says …

Wonderful podcast!

Vivian says …

Very interesting, thanks.

I got this podcast off of Mod Mom and I have found all 3 of these Wellness podcasts so informative. I have heard about Oscillo before, but I never knew really what it was for or how to use it. I love how Christophe explained that we often take OTC medications that simply mask the symptoms, not treat it. Oscillo sounds like it does a great job in reducing the duration of a cold and help with the symptoms as well. I also like that you can take it before you even get a really bad cold and that it doesn't make you feel drowsy and disconnected like most medications. It also sounds really easy to take and to give to children. I'll have to go check it out!

Kristy says …

Referred by here by Mod*mom and can I just say if a medicine like Oscillo works AND tastes good, then sign me up!

Tonie says …

I would have loved to have this information on sunday when the flu hit me! I am going to get some for the house for next time that I start feeling run down

JoAnne says …

Oscillo sounds like a great weapon for flu. Safe and effective if taken from the first tickle, before you are even sure it is the flu. Thanks for the podcast. I was referred by Mod Mom.

Caryn Bailey says …

I've listened to all three of your podcasts on staying well and I LOVE the information. Thank you. Referred by modmom.blogspot.com

Colleen Stearns says …

Another very informative podcast. I have bookmarked your site. I thank Mod*Mom for sending me to these podcasts. I really like the idea that Oscillo is safe for my sons to take.

Heather Slater says …

I read about these on mod*mom. I am always interested in homeopathy and think that you shared some great information.

Tracy Arnold says …

Wow! I'll have pass this on to some of my friends with young children. Great info. Thanks to Mod*Mom for referring to this podcast!

Christie says …

Everyone, please do your research before running out and buying products of homeopathy. Mr. (Dr. ?) Merville, says himself that the basic principle of homeopathy is that "homeopathic medicines are made from minute doses of natural substances". I think you should understand just how minute we're talking here. Juices from that onion that Merville talks about are diluted in 100 parts water. Some of this is new liquid is taken out and diluted again in 100 parts water. This continues dozens of times. For the sake of easy math, lets say only 10 times this happens. This is a dilution of 1 part onion juice (which is mostly water to start with) to 10 to the power of 100 (yes, that's a 1 with 100 zeros) parts water. Since there are about 10 to the 26th molecules (1 with 26 zeros) in a gallon of water, chances are the bottle of so called "homeopathic medicine" you are sold does not contain a single molecule of the original liquid. In other words, you just paid a lot of money for some very expensive water.

Lisa Elliott says …

I am a big fan of homeopathy and I had not really touched on the Oscillo prior to now. I am going to have the check into that one! Thanks for sharing. :-)

cathy B says …

THank you so much for the great explanation on Oscillo. You answered a very important question i think alot of us always have. if there is such minute amounts of the natural substances in the product how does it help... You answered us with the statement... "it helps to reduce duration and severity". That works for me! ALso you emphasized that it doesnt interfere with other medications. We know how important that is aos. thanks again for a wonderful podcast and to http://ModMom.blogspot.com for linking to the podcasts.
