Johannes was always a sickly child. His immune system was weaker than other babies even from birth. Some of that was related to his PFAPA, but some of it was just how his body was. We did our best. I nursed him around the clock, I took vitamins, he took vitamins. As he got older I would make him fresh fruit juices and salads. But at the end of the day his body was as it was and sadly he was sick a lot. Coughs really lingered for him and often a coughing fit would keep him awake at night and turn into vomiting too.
Around the time that he turned one Johannes came down with a horrible flu. Congestion, fever and a cough that would throw him into convulsions and vomiting. I stayed up for two nights with him just so he could sleep elevated on my chest. Then Michael went to the pharmacy and came back with Helixia Cough Prospan cough syrup. The pharmacist recommended it as a cough syrup for kids, and we were desperately looking for some relief for his terrible cough. It was made with dried ivy leaves completely sucrose free and dye free which was important to me. I won’t lie I was skeptical at first, but I gave it a try anyway and Johannes seemed to do better after taking a dose. So I kept it up, and now, 6 years later, Helixia Cough Prospan is still a staple for us during cold and flu season.
When the folks at Helixia head office reached out to me to help them spread the word, I was so excited. I’d been speaking about our experience with it to all our family and friends, and recommending it to my followers for years, so it was a natural fit.
Helixia Cough Prospan is a recommended cough syrup for kids as young as 1, and most parents don’t know about it. It helps to relieve cough, loosen mucus and phlegm and it tastes great (I tried it too). Although Johannes is now old enough to take other cough syrups, I still give him Helixia because why fix something that isn’t broken.
