Try this natural, effective solution for teething pains
by Dr. Edward Posluszny, FLT Columnist
If your teething child is fussy and uncomfortable, try this all-natural and soothing solution — a Baltic amber teething necklace. It is a well-known European method to help decrease teething pain.
Baltic amber (mined near the Baltic Sea) releases succinic acid that works like a natural Ibuprofen, reducing pain and inflammation. It can help take the edge off discomfort associated with dental issues, headaches, joint pain, etc. Baltic amber is worn close to the skin, where body temperature releases its anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties.
For teething, Baltic amber is made into beaded necklaces — several sizes are available to keep it tight without constricting. For safety, the necklace breaks under tension. Necklaces should not be worn for sleeping or bath. And your child should not chew on the beads.
Find Baltic amber necklaces locally at Sweet Cheeks Baby Boutique or purchase online (make sure it is Baltic amber).
