Standard Process Congaplex for Sick Children and Adults

We have used Standard Process Congaplex with both our young children and us...for years, and we always get the great results we want.

When a cold or flu rolls into the house it spreads like wildfire. However, we all approach the sickness differently. My family and I resort to Standard Process Congaplex to help aid ourselves and our children. Our solution is easy to find and can be very helpful but we needed a safe place to share advice. Welcome to that safe place, where everyone is free to voice their tactics when their child gets sick.

We have used Standard Process Congaplex for our children and us as adults for years as a natural supplement and hope sharing our experience helps.

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? Who knew the answer would be Standard Process Congaplex?

The Sickness

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!

The Cure

I called my chiropractor this morning to get the updated dosage for Standard Process 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.

The Safe Place

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 I’m taking 3 every few hours. Ugh – I hate colds!


  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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 [email protected]

  4. 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!

  5. Over the holidays my family and I traveled back and forth to different weather enviorments. My four month old caught a very bad cold. Bad cough, congestion, runny-draining nose. He was miserable, even hoarse which caused him very minimum sound when crying and he was unable to babble. Being that I exclusively breastfeed my chiropractor recommend I take congaplex to get in his system. The magic and wonders it worked. His cough immediately broke and drainage cleared!

  6. Mother of 3… Wonderful to hear that congaplex is transmitted thru breast milk… Awesome magic 👍.
    I am taking Conga Plex along with mega doses of Vitamin C to chase away flu like symptoms and day 2 is seeing much improvement. Yesterday was a blur… Only got off the couch for food, water and bathroom. Thank you Standard Process for making a natural supplement that works! -Betty
