Turquoise and Baltic Amber Teething Necklace
Turquoise and Baltic Amber Teething Necklaces may help alleviate the pain from teething. This necklace is knotted between each oval natural Baltic Amber bead and has an Amber screw clasp. The history of amber necklaces dates back centuries. Even Hippocrates, the father of medicine, believed that Baltic amber had healing powers when worn. In theory, when a child wears it, his body heat triggers the release of a minute amount of oil that contains succinic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body. When the oil is absorbed, advocates say, it has an analgesic effect on swollen, sore gums. In addition to assisting with reducing pain, drooling (for which amber is said to work by stimulating the thyroid glands) and irritability that is often associated with teething, Baltic amber is believed to help relieve eczema, speed up wound healing and stave off ear and throat inflammation, among other ailments.
NOTE REGARDING SAFETY - Children should be monitored while wearing the necklaces at all times. It is the parent's decision of what age is appropriate based on the individual child's habits and maturity. Silver Eagle Gallery is NOT dispensing medical advice.
