Which homeopathic remedies are best to use to facilitate the resolution of cavities or a predisposition to tooth decay issues and how to best administer to children.
Many people do not consider homeopathy for cavities, but there are two remedies that can be of assistance especially when other natural methods of treatment are not producing any results.
Prevention and cure of cavities are based on diet as discovered, researched, and documented by Dr. Weston A. Price, DDS.
In certain instances, homeopathic treatment can provide valuable assistance to the healing journey but cannot be viewed as a substitute for a nourishing, Traditional Diet.
Teeth Represent the Overall Health of the Body
The quality of the teeth represents the status of the bone structure of the body.
Therefore, it’s important that the teeth be sound. If they are, the bones will be sound, too.
Sometimes, parents are concerned when their child’s teeth show frequent and large cavities in spite of a decent diet.
This is rare when children are raised on unprocessed, fresh from the farm grass-fed dairy, but it can occur in children who have certain predisposing genetics.
In this case, deep-acting constitutional remedies would be in order.
If the caries are not of a particularly worrisome level, much can be done to remedy the problem with homeopathic treatment at home.
Homeopathic Remedies for Cavities
It generally takes a good amount of time for homeopathic treatment to strengthen and aid in the growth of teeth in children.
They should be taken three times a day for many months to achieve the desired tooth-strengthening effect.
These two remedies make a powerful homeopathic treatment, particularly in combination.
These remedies are specific for growth as well. This is important because it’s common for children who have tooth challenges to display other growth issues too.
When my children were growing, I had them take these remedies on a daily basis for years.
I did this in spite of the fact that they were raised on nourishing, easy-to-digest raw milk.
During these years, it appeared that two of our boys’ teeth were growing in a crooked fashion. In fact, I’m sure that if we hadn’t chosen our holistic dentist, we would have been pressured into putting braces on their teeth.
Instead, I believed that as they grew, their teeth would grow and straighten accordingly. And that’s exactly what happened.
Our boys have fine, strong, and straight teeth without the “aid” of orthodontia.
We saved ourselves not only thousands of dollars but allowed their bodies to complete the work of bone alignment on their own.
Administering Cavity Remedies for Children
A simple technique for administering this homeopathic treatment is to add them directly to jugs of milk.
In one gallon of milk, add 10 pills of each remedy, stir and the job is complete.
As your children ingest their milk throughout the day, they’ll get these two remedies in each sip.
If despite your efforts, dental caries sneaks in, Philip Wander, founding member and chairman of the British Homeopathic Dental Association, recommends applying liberal amounts of Plantago tincture (suggested brand) directly on the cavity using a cotton ball.
This can be done temporarily until necessary and professional dental care is employed.
