Baltic amber Teething Necklace Information and Advice
If you are looking for an alternative to conventional medicine when trying to soothe your teething child then a Baltic amber teething necklace might be what you are looking for. The necklace are made to wear but not to chew on, whereby the body heat from the child will heat the amber, which then releases minuscule amounts of oil that contain therapeutic properties which are then absorbed by the childs body through the skin.
Choosing the right amber is absolutely critical. You must remember, however, that the key to the success of any Amber Teething Necklace is that it must be composed of genuine Baltic amber. Baltic amber contains 3-8% of succinic acid, a scientifically examined medical substance used in contemporary medicine. This acid is a potent substance that is present is almost every cell in the body and contains many beneficial properties. Succinic acid is an anti-inflammatory (reduces swelling and red cheeks); an analgesic (reduces pain); anti-spasmodic (reduces diarrhoea); expectorant (reduces and removes mucus in the nose and chest);and anti-pyretic (reduces fever). How many different medicines would you need to give your child to relieve all of these symptoms? Furthermore, there is only a need for a very small amount of Succinic acid that is needed to feel the beneficial effects; these necklaces deliver a continuous and small amount to your child.
