Teething Trouble In Children - How Can Homeopathy Help?

Biting and gnawing at things is a precursor to the developing of the first teeth of your baby. It is a joy to see the first teeth of your baby. It may be an occasion to be celebrated, but it is an uncomfortable process for the baby. For this reason, teething trouble is common among babies.

Teething Troubles:

Between the ages of 4 to 7 months, babies usually begin to teeth, though some may also have it later. Symptoms of the teething problem include:

  1. Swollen gums

  2. Crying

  3. Slightly high body temperature

  4. Gnawing on hard things

  5. Drooling

  6. Changes in sleeping and eating pattern

These symptoms imply that the baby is feeling uncomfortable from the side effects of teething. He/She may also be feeling pain. If your baby suffers from vomiting, diarrhea, rashes or high fever, you need to take it to a doctor since these are not normal symptoms of teething.

However, even for bringing down the general symptoms of teething, babies are given pain relievers which may not be well tolerated in them, especially in the future. Looking for natural solutions is never harmful in such situations. Homeopathy can bring down the general symptoms of teething or prevent them more naturally.  

Homeopathy To Treat Teething Trouble:

The goal of attending to teething trouble is to reduce the associated pain and inflammation of the gum. There are many homeopathic medicines for bringing down teething trouble. In fact, homeopathy is a great tool for treating problems without much side effect. It is believed that homeopathic medicines don’t have any side effects. They are administered in very small concentrations, and they act by rectifying the homeostatic imbalance in the body. In fact, there are various teething remedies in homeopathy.

Homeopathic Remedies For Teething Trouble:

  1. Aconitum Apellus: If the baby is agitated, his/her gums look inflamed and are very restless, you can use this medicine.

  2. Belladonna: If the baby is suffering from intense pain and inflammation, it may feel restless and get easily startled. In that situation, you can go for this medicine.

  3. Calcarea Carbonica: In some babies, teething begins late; it is slow and also painful. For them, this homeopathic medicine may be effective. If the baby looks anxious or sad, pressing his/her gums together, and suffering from pain, you can use this medicine.

  4. Calcarea Phosphorica: For aching gums and disturbed sleep resulting in food faddism, irritability, and stomach aches, you can give this medicine to the baby.

  5. Chamomilla: If the child is extremely irritable and agitated and is screaming and hitting continuously despite rocking or carrying continuously, he/she may be suffering from intense pain. His/Her gums may have become sensitive to touch that every single bite seems to be producing intense pain. In such a situation one may use this medicine.

Ignatia: If the child seems to be upset, sad, and is suffering from teething trouble, you can use this homeopathic remedy.
