Thanksgiving is a time for large family gatherings. And it’s also a time when young children—who tend to dislike hand-washing— connect with their susceptible older grandparents. Coughs, colds and flu flourish during the holidays and so does overeating. So for tips on treating colds or flu you might catch while at the mall on Black Friday or indigestion after a lavish holiday meal, listen to Nov. 15, 2012’s episode of “Let’s Talk Health” on WNPV 1440 AM as host Dr. Ria Gilday interviews Boiron pharmacist Dr. Christophe Merville. The two will discuss essential homeopathic medicines for winter and the holiday season, including Oscillococcinum for flu-like symptoms*, Nux vomica for overindulgence**, and Arnicare Gel for pain and bruising** resulting from busy winter activities.
“Let’s Talk Health” airs every Thursday from 11 a.m.–12 p.m. on WNPV 1440 AM.
