Allergies this year have affected our family well beyond the blossoms of spring – here we are in June and we are still sneezing and experiencing itchy watery eyes. Thanks to Boiron and their Medicine Finder App, we discovered quick relief!
The free “Boiron Medicine Finder” app (which can also be used via their website http://www.boironusa.com/catalog/medicine-finder/), is a big help to parents in matching up the most appropriate homeopathic medicine for their child’s individual needs. Suggested medicines are always 1-2-3 clicks away. The app also offers coupons, in-store offers and helps users find a nearby store. The app is supported by Apple devices, Android devices, and Amazon Kindles, and it can be downloaded via these app stores.
The active ingredients in homeopathic medicines are diluted plants, animals and minerals that relieve the same symptoms they cause at full strength. For example, Allium cepa, a homeopathic medicine made from the onion, relieves irritated eyes, a runny nose with a clear and burning discharge, and spasmodic sneezing improved by breathing fresh air.*
Homeopathic medicines are a good choice as a first-line treatment for allergies. They help relieve bothersome symptoms and, in the worst cases, decrease the need for heavy medication. Your pharmacist can recommend the best solution for your particular condition.
For convenience and economy, Boiron’s medical advisors have combined the most common homeopathic single medicines into these products to address the most common allergy symptoms.
