Amber Teething Necklaces?
Ah.. modern medicine vs. homegrown remedies!
Have you all ever heard of the Amber Teething Necklaces? Obviously used around infants when teething.. it's been something new I have been exposed to due to following some new mom bloggers, who swear by them.
I did some research.. many docs obviously do not condone putting a necklace around your baby, regardless of what it can help with.. but aside from that, with careful watching, the benefits I have heard/seen are somewhat awesome to see. According to one boutique that sells the necklaces, it's the succinic acid, a natural component in amber that helps get the job done... soothing as a natural pain reliever and taking any inflammation down as well. The beads are only to be worn, NOT chewed, and typically kept around the neck, or even around the ankle.
What are your thoughts.. have you tried this necklace? Would you?
But adults claim to use them on themselves for headaches and pain I hear :)
