Information on Coughs and Colds in Children
While coughs and colds are common in adults and children alike, children are especially prone to developing infection as their immune systems are not yet as strong as those of adults. Children are also frequently in contact with other children in schools, creches and day care centres, where contagious viruses are difficult to control. For some parents, it seems that their children are always sick with one cough and cold after the other, with repeated antibiotic treatment compromising the functioning of little immune systems.

Coughs and Colds
Coughing is a symptom of an underlying infection or illness and is the body’s way of removing irritating substances, excess secretions, and foreign objects from air passages. This is important, both as a protective mechanism and for the healing process - which is why a cough should not be artificially suppressed with drugs.
When a cough is painful, too intense, or prevents good rest, the use of natural remedies can gently relieve discomfort and help with recovery.
Coughs are generally divided into two main types – those that produce or expel mucous (productive coughs) and those that don’t (non-productive or “dry” coughs)
Productive coughs help clear and protect the lungs from infectious mucus, whereas non-productive coughs are usually the result of an irritation in the throat.
The most common causes of coughs in children are colds and 'flu, which are infections mainly involving the upper respiratory tract. Colds and 'flu are caused by viruses and can have many of the same symptoms. A cold is generally milder, while flu tends to be more severe. There are more than 100 different viruses that can cause the common cold. 'Flu is also caused by viruses - the Influenza virus. There are fewer viruses that cause 'flu and this is why a vaccination can be produced.
Why are children more susceptible to colds and flu?
Childrens’ immune systems are not as strong or well-developed as those of adults, making them more vulnerable to infections of all types. Children who go to kindergarten, day-care and after-care are particularly at risk as they come into close contact with many other children every day and we all know that hygiene and hand-washing are not always top priorities for little ones!
How are coughs, colds and flu usually treated?
Coughs, colds and flu are usually treated with bed-rest and symptomatic medication until the body’s own immune system overcomes the infection. There are no allopathic medications to cure colds or flu. Although antibiotics are sometimes prescribed, they are not effective against viruses and will only help in the case of secondary infections.
Many of the commercial cough mixtures available contain a variety of side-effect producing substances. Cough mixtures designed to “open up the airways” often contain stimulants which can cause anxiety, tremors and dizziness. Cough suppressants often contain codeine derivatives which can sedate your child and may lead to constipation. Not to mention that most cough mixtures are also very high in alcohol and sugar!
Over the counter medicines like paracetamol, as well as various other cough and cold products are also often used to treat symptoms. However, many of these also come with side effects. Decongestant drugs can be very effective but cause side-effects like increased irritability and hyperactivity. They can also “over-dry” the nose and mucus membranes- causing discomfort. It is also important to remember that all of the symptoms of colds and flu (e.g. coughing, sneezing and running nose) are nature's way of trying to drive the virus from the body and one should therefore take medicines like cough suppressants and decongestants with caution as they can prolong the illness and even make it worse in the long run.
The Natural Way
There are a number of things that can be done to keep chests clear. At night, try propping children up with extra pillows. This will raise their heads and cause them to sleep at an angle, helping them to breath easier through the night. You can also try using a plug-in device such as a vaporizer, which releases softly soothing vapors such as lavender and chamomile to aid clear and easy breathing. Natural remedies have long been used to maintain clear chests and support easy breathing – this has been confirmed in studies. (Buechi, S., Vogelin, R., von Eiff, M. M., Ramos, M., and Melzer, J. “Open trial to assess aspects of safety and efficacy of a combined herbal cough syrup with ivy and thyme.” Forsch.Komplementarmed.Klass.Naturheilkd. 2005;12(6):328-332.)

How has ComfiCoff helped others?
“Thank you for a safe cough remedy that works! With three kids under 5 years there is always someone with a cold. I have tried countless cough mixtures and they either don’t work or get my children all hyped up. Finally I have found something that works for everyone!”
“I don’t usually write these letters but I feel compelled to thank you and congratulate you on a superb product – ComfiCoff. It was recommended to me by a colleague and, after my initial hesitation, I decided to try it for my daughter. I have always been a bit sceptical of natural remedies but after trying ComfiCoff I am converted! After the first dose I could immediately see the soothing effect on my daughter and things only got better from there. Based on my experience with ComfiCoff I will definitely be trying some of your other remedies.”
- Ms K McKinley
“I usually never give my children much for coughs and colds (because I know it is a viral infection) but I decided to try ComfiCoff as it is a natural remedy and not one of those horrible commercial cough mixtures. And am I glad that I did! It really helped my boys’ coughs and allowed everyone to rest and get better”.
- Rosa Correira
As an ex-smoker of 12 years (and still counting!) I have a persistent tickle and mucus in my throat with a need to constantly clear it which is irritating to me and to others. I have tried a bunch of stuff with little success, but I feel I have finally found the solution with your Comficoff syrup which helps tremendously!"
What are the Ingredients?
ComfiCoff contains the following carefully chosen herbal and homeopathic ingredients in therapeutic dosages:
Althea Officinalis (Marshmallow) has been used since ancient Greek and Roman times. It contains large sugar molecules called mucilage which exert a soothing effect on mucous membranes and is therefore an effective treatment for respiratory catarrh, irritating coughs and infections. This soothing herb helps to reduce all types of inflammation and will relieve dry coughs and sore throats.
Hyssopus Officinalis (Hyssop) is one of the oldest medicinal herbs and has its healing powers extolled in the bible – “Purge me with Hyssop and I shall be clean”. (Psalm 51:7) It is used to assist the body with respiratory problems, such as coughs and congestion, as well as to boost immune functioning and thereby help to relieve fevers and inflammation.
Sambucus Nigra (Elder) soothes coughs and inflammation by increasing bronchial secretions. It is also a valuable aid to loosening phlegm and decreasing congestion. As a diaphoretic herb (causing perspiration) it is useful for relieving fever. Recent research has shown that Sambucus Nigra also contains compounds that are active against several strains of flu viruses.
Marrubium Vulgare (Horehound) has also been used throughout most of history and was well used in Egyptian and ancient Roman times. It is an effective remedy for coughs as it acts as an expectorant - loosening phlegm and mucous and allowing the body to combat infection
Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice Root) has long been known for it’s ability to soothe respiratory inflammation and calm coughs. In addition Licorice root has powerful immune-boosting, anti-inflammatory and anti-viral properties, helping to fight infection.
Pulsatilla (30C) is a homeopathic remedy for treating inflammation of the respiratory passages, coughs and colds. Pulsatilla is particularly useful for tight, chesty coughs and its anti-spasmodic action helps to relieve sudden outbursts of coughing. In addition it promotes relaxation and good sleep.
Bryonia (30C) is another homeopathic remedy that is very effective in treating coughs, most particularly painful and dry coughs associated with a tight chest and dry mucous membranes. Bryonia helps to clear mucous from the chest.
Kali Mur (6C) is a biochemic tissue salt that is very useful in clearing mucous, relieving coughs and soothing sore throats. In addition Kali. Mur. will help to reduce inflammation and remove toxins from the body.
Ferrum Phos (6C) is another biochemic tissue salt which has many uses in the body. The most important benefits are in the ability of Ferrum Phos. to combat all types of infection and inflammation. Ferrum Phos. is an excellent cough remedy especially for tickly coughs. Ferrum Phos. also helps to strengthen the walls of the blood vessels and thus improves the body's ability to distribute oxygen-rich blood and iron to all cells, thereby facilitating healing. An excellent Tissue Salt for the treatment of sore throat, fever, colds and bronchitis and aching bodies, Ferrum Phos. is recommended at the first stage of any infection for fast resolution of the symptoms.
All the above ingredients are combined in a 100% safe and natural Tolu Syrup and Glycerine base.
