Preserving the Fundamental Human Right to Health Freedom

A Pharma-Free Solution to a Tooth Abcess

***It is my passion to raise awareness about alternative-to-pharmaceutical modalities that promote health and wellness. I hope you enjoy the stories I share from my own journey raising natural, pharmaceutical free children. The following is not meant to be medical advice, if you need medical advice seek out a pharmaceutically trained medical physician.***

I had always believed in homeopathy, since becoming a mother and seeing how helpful it could be when I had a teething baby. However, I had no idea how valuable it would be in treating our family, in such a broad sense, including treating future dental needs I still believed could only be addressed by antibiotics. 

Our middle son developed some dental issues quite young, and despite following healing protocols and working with a DDS, the issues persisted. When we noticed a back molar showing signs of decay when he was about 3 1/2 years old, we decided to go forward with some non-amalgam fillings after not having a lot of success even implementing any of the highly effective methods discussed in books like "Cure Tooth Decay"

We ended up doing a couple of fillings which was very traumatic for our son. Some of the fillings ended up falling out. My son ended up with an abscess tooth on his back bottom right molar a few weeks before his fourth birthday, our family vacation, and his debut as a ringbearer at his aunts wedding. Obviously, fear was setting in because the thought of being in another state with a potentially serious dental emergency, paired with being a very holistic family, I did not want to take any chances. It actually took us a couple of days to get into our dentist, in the meantime at my urging, he agreed to write me a prescription for antibiotics. I was of the mind that only antibiotics could take care of something like a dental abscess, but also very aware they would destroy his gut, possibly making his already picky eating even more intense and essentially wipe out his good bacteria. Every attempt to have this child ingest the liquid antibiotic, was completely a failure - it was as if he knew how detrimental something like that could be to his body! He kicked, screamed, spat, and cried.

At this point a friend who is also a registered nurse, suggested looking into the homeopathic remedy Hepar Sulph. I quickly began researching and found the potency suggested for healing dental abscesses on Joette Calabrese homeopathic website. At this point our son was averse to any sort of medication, however we could dissolve the remedy into his water and he quickly began showing improvements. Within a day the swelling had significantly gone down. We were also using things such as essential oil externally, Sovereign Silver, iodine and salt water however the homeopathy was the one thing that we could guarantee to get in him through his daily water intake.

Within a few days he was completely recovered we were able to go on our family vacation. He had a wonderful happy birthday celebrated at the beach. We are forever grateful that we were able to heal our son without damaging his gut or his microbiome, no trauma, no holding him down to get medication in, and when we went to have that tooth extracted because we thought that it was so damaged, after the x-ray they had a hard time determining which tooth needed to be removed because all of the infection was gone.
