standard process congaplex

We awoke today to slowly discover that Princess A is indeed sick with a cold of some sort. You know how it goes? You see the first sign on sickness and pray it is teething & then when it continues hope for allergies. If it is snowing, all hope is gone! If there are signs of life outside, you wait a bit longer still praying for allergies…slowly….realizing…that….yes…your…child…is….sick. Denial is fun while it lasts, right?

Poor Princess A is SO congested and draining constantly. However, it has been a long time, relatively speaking, since she has gotten sick. I think November was our last cold so that is pretty great, especially considering decongestants have been removed from the shelves – LOL!

I called my chiropractor this morning to get the updated dosage for Standard ProcessĀ Congaplex, which is made by Standard Process, Inc. (You can see my other posts about Standard Process products here. Simply put, I love the company, what they stand for, and their products.) She can have 3 capsules a day at the age of 16 months. We were able to get 2 into applesauce and yogurt today. I am going to add the dust to her milk tomorrow in hopes to make it a bit easier since she does not want to eat.

So – enough about this household. I was thinking it would be fun and helpful for other parents if I started a post where we can all comment and help each other figure out what to do when our child is sick. If you use Congaplex, we can talk about how that is going, answer questions for those of you that are not familiar with Congaplex (known as Conga in our family).

At the bare minimum, we can at least feel better knowing that others are in the same boat. When our kids are sick, it is simply no fun! (PLEASE NOTE: I am not a health care professional.

So, if you have sick kids and want to share ideas, get some input, or talk about Congaplex, post a comment or question to me or someone else who has made a comment.

**Update: 6/21/08: Princess A started with a runny nose so we dove right into Congaplex. We are mixing it in her milk and it does not phase her in the least. I also have a sore throat and some congestion so am taking 3 every few hours. Ugh – I hate colds!

    Well – we gave her two Conga’s today in her milk and she guzzled it. She is holding even but not getting worse so that is at least good.

    Well – things have quickly progressed as they typically do with Congaplex. She showed first symptoms on Wednesday and was draining like crazy. Thursday was much less drainage and Friday through the weekend has been very minimal. She developed a cough on Friday late so it is hopefully working its way out of her system. We are putting a Congaplex in her milk as much as we can. She is getting 2 a day. 3 is hard to do.

    So this turned into a sinus infection for Princess A. We all ended up sick. The Congaplex was not enough for her, but Mr. C was able to fight it off with the Congaplex supplement, as were hubby and I. Anyone else out there? I know I can’t be the only one using this stuff!

    I always use Olive leaf extract. you can surf the web for dosage. I give my three year old about 1 tsp three times a day. if that does not work then I treat there feet with three parts olive oil mixed with 1 part oregano oil. I started using thease product for my self in the pill form and they knock out just about anything really fast. But, the kiddo’s cant take the pills, so you put it on the sole of the foot with a dilution of olive oil. 3 parts olive oil and 1 part oregano oil. aproximately 1 tsp of olive oil and 2 drops of oregano oil will do the job. I am going to try the congaplex just out of curiousity. I am not a doctor either but have had awesome results with these products. Any questions on what I have found to work you can email me at

    Thanks for stopping in and sharing, Donna. I will have to try this next time – when they get sick and I am pretty much open to anything. :)

    Standard Process does have chewable Congaplex that I now have for our kids. Both kids take them with no problem. I think it was $11 for a bottle or something. That is much easier than the capsules in their food.

    Happy Health everyone!
