Homeopathic medicines are thought to act according to the "Principle of Similars" and the "Principle of Minimum Dose." These principles state that if a drug causes certain symptoms in a healthy person, that same drug may be given in very small doses to relieve those same symptoms in a person exhibiting them from a different cause. More simply put, with homeopathy, "like cures like." The natural ingredients used in homeopathy help the body rid itself of not just the symptoms (as with conventional medicines) but also the cause of the symptoms, in a completely natural way.
Homeopathy has been attributed to German physician and medical translator Samuel C.F. Hahnemann (1755-1843), who first observed and codified the system more than 200 years ago.
Yes. Homeopathic medicines are safe and non-habit forming. Homeopathic medicines are safe because they use highly diluted amounts of active ingredients to stimulate the body’s healing response.
Clinical data from trials, case observations and case reports have been accumulated for over 200 years. These data form the basis of the homeopathic literature.
Homeopathic medicines are suitable for anyone needing symptom relief. Users are of all ages and backgrounds. Homeopathic medicines are a safe, effective, and natural option for the entire family.
Yes. Homeopathic medicines have not been shown to interact with other medicines. For this reason, homeopathic medicines are a great first line of defense in the face of many illnesses.
Yes. Homeopathic medicines are classified as drugs and they are manufactured according to Food and Drug Administration current good manufacturing guidelines and standards set by the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia Convention of the United States. The claims for our products are based on traditional homeopathic practice. They have not been reviewed by the Food and Drug Administration.
Because homeopathic medicines contain such small amounts of natural active ingredients, they are a safe option for children in alleviating many common childhood ailments. The current movement to limit the use of over-the-counter Cough and cold medicines in young children is driven by the fact that misuse in dosages of those medicines can result in greater illness or even death in small children. Homeopathic medicines do not carry the same risk because they do not use the same active ingredients in those pediatric Cough/cold medicines that were withdrawn from the market last year. By contrast, homeopathic medicines offer children a wide margin of safety. Note that the product being sampled, Hyland's Cold 'n Cough 4 Kids, is safe to administer to children ages 2+.
Homeopathic medicines are available to treat many common childhood conditions. Hyland's offers homeopathic medicines to treat the common symptoms of colds and Flu (coughing, sneezing, Runny Nose, Sore throat, etc.), oral pain, colic, diaper rash, earaches, bedwetting, and bruising.

It appears that the bottle of Hyland’s tablets that you have has become moldy. If the homeopathic tablets have become moldy, it means that moisture and mold spores have somehow entered into the bottle of tablets. DO NOT use that bottle of tablets. In the future, you should not touch the tablets or put them back into bottle once they have been removed. We do not use preservatives in our tablets, so touching them could contaminate them with bacteria, mold or other microorganisms. When administering the tablets, it is best to shake the tablets into the bottle cap, and then tip them directly into your mouth without touching the cap to your mouth in order to avoid introducing saliva into the cap or bottle. Also, the tablets should be stored in a cool, dry place, away from any excessive heat or moisture. A bathroom, because of its moist environment, would not be a good place to store Hyland’s homeopathic tablets. If the tablets are discolored upon the first opening of the bottle, please call Hyland's customer service at 1 (800) 624-9659.
