Children’s Chestal Homeopathic Medicine Review

If you are like me and have children, then you worry about all of the recalls of medicines that all of us usually turn to when our children are sick. The cold and flu season is coming quickly and now is the time to make sure our medicine cabinets are fully stocked to help combat the sickness that is bound to come.

Children’s Chestal  Honey is one that I have in my medicine cabinet and one you should have as well. Made by Boiron, the world leader in homeopathic medicines, Chestal is all-natural and will treat dry cough and chest congestion. It combines many different homeopathic medicines and coats the throat with natural honey. Chestal is recommended for children 2 year old and up.

Since Chestal is all natural, there is no worry of drug interactions, and there are no drowsy side effects like some traditional medicine may cause.

The following are the active and inactive ingredients found in Chestal:

Active Ingredients:

  • Antimonium tartaricum 6C HPUS – Helps loosen thick mucus
  • Bryonia alba 3C HPUS – Relieves dry and painful cough
