As children go back to school or settle into creche, the first autumn coughs, colds and sniffles are a familiar feature in many families. Sometimes these develop into sore throats or chest infections which may require antibiotics. However, antibiotics do weaken the immune system further and should be avoided as much as possible. If you want to treat your children's colds naturally and without antibiotics and if you want to strengthen their immune system rather than depleting it: homeopathy does just that! The best thing would be to bring your children for homeopathic treatment at the beginning of the cold season to give them the best headstart - especially those who regularly get "every bug that's going". Remember: homeopathy is an immunity booster, it's natural, and it's effective!
