I have thought about this many times but never put it to the test. I am wondering if others have been helped during rough spells with the homeopathic remedy called Oscillococcinum. There have been many times over the 29 years I have been sick that I have taken this remedy when my symptoms are on the achey, nauseated and dizzy side of the spectrum. It has always provided me some degree of relief. My mother manages a health food store and has asked the rep from this company about my success. He insisted in only works if you actually have a flu. Regardless, I cant think of one time it hasnt helped me to some degree. Sometimes it completely relieves the nauseated feeling for the rest of the day and I forget about it. On more than one occasion I have thought about taking it on going as directed for a flu but for a prolonged period of time to see what might happen. Any one else use this and found it helpful???
