Oscillococcinum is made
from Barbary duck heart and liver.
Wild fowl have been shown to
be a major reservoir of human influenza viruses and as they migrate, viruses
spread through their excrement.
Oscillococcinum is used for preventing and treating
symptoms including the relief of symptoms of flu such as fever, chills, body
aches and pains.
This homeopathic medicine has been shown in clinical studies to
decrease the duration and intensity of flu symptoms.
Oscillococcinum proprietary preparation
of registered by Boiron, a French homeopathic pharmacy. It is the only homeopathic medicine authorized
for routine production in France in a dilution above the 30C, and by the Korsakovian method. (The Korsakovian dilution method involves repeated
incomplete emptying and refilling of a single piece of glassware, whereas the
Hahnemannian demands fresh glassware for each.)
