Babies Sink Their Teeth into a Homeopathic Teething Medicine
Newtown Square, Pa.—Many parents take a two-step approach when it comes to teething medicine. They apply a fast-acting, topical numbing agent frequently throughout the day, while limiting the use of an internal longer-lasting anti-inflammatory for the night. Now there’s Camilia, an “all-you-need” teething solution. Camilia’s liquid unit-doses temporarily relieve painful gums and irritability, so the whole house is at peace both day and night.
Camilia is also formulated to address minor digestive disorders associated with teething. While there is a debate on whether teething causes diarrhea, the fact remains that many parents report diarrhea, which can then lead to diaper rash, in conjunction with teething. One of the theories is that since babies drool a lot, more saliva is passing through their systems, diluting nutrients and adding more acidic content to the mix. It is normal that stools contain enzymes that help digest food. During teething, stools pass through the intestines more quickly thanks to the copious saliva and take with them more acidic matter. The enzymes affect the soft skin of a baby’s bottom, resulting in a rash that can be irritating or painful.
Voted by pharmacists as the best new product in 2004 after its launch in France, Boiron Camilia combines three homeopathic medicines with only one inactive ingredient (purified water). This tasteless liquid is absorbed sublingually without numbing the gums or affecting the gag reflex. There is no need to worry about applying gel to the correct area or infants potentially choking, and there are no messy spills. When children are not their most cooperative, simply squeeze the contents of the pre-measured tube into their mouths.
Camilia can be administered throughout the teething phase, which can last nearly three years. There’s no need to make a child wait in pain or watch the clock for hours before administering another dose. If necessary, a dose of Camilia can be repeated in 15-minute increments for two more doses. Follow-up doses may be necessary because children, like adults, can have very individualistic responses to homeopathic medicines; some see improvement as soon as the first dose is given, while others require more than one dose.
Camilia has no known side effects or contraindications. It won’t interact with other medicines when used as directed. Because homeopathic medicines work with the body instead of masking or numbing symptoms, parents and doctors can detect and respond faster in case a more serious condition, such as a cold or an ear infection, develops.
As a product of Boiron, world leader in homeopathic medicines, Camilia is manufactured according to the highest standards, complying with the specifications of the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States and drug Good Manufacturing Practices.
Camilia is packaged in sterile single-dose units that guard against contamination—a feature appreciated by parents with both a teething baby and a toddler. The pre-measured dose in a shatterproof tube is convenient, quick and easy to use for parents on the go. And there’s no need to know the child’s weight.
Void of benzocaine, preservatives, flavors, dyes, sugar or artificial sweeteners, Camilia is available in boxes of 10 or 30 doses.
