Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Do any of your products contain lactose?
A. All of our products are lactose free and many are based on traditional sucrose pellets that allow for proper absorption. In the case of our children's products, this is also a benefit for children with lactose digestive complications and mothers who are trying to limit their intake of lactose based products.
Q. At what age can I begin giving your products to my child?
A. Our products are safe and effective to be used at the first signs of teething, such as drooling, redness in the gum area, and irritability, all the way through the entire process. Teething in children usually begins as early as three months of age to as late as twelve. While there is no consistent pattern among all children, the lower front teeth (incisors) are usually the first to appear followed by the upper front within a couple of months.
Q. Do your products have side effects?
A. Homeopathic remedies work together with your body to help encourage it to return to a normal state of balance. Their active ingredients are in high dilutions plus there is no risk of addiction or build up of tolerance even with long term use.
Q. How do I administer these remedies to my child?
As with all medicines however you should contact your health care provider if symptoms continue unimproved for more than 5 days, and should keep out of the reach of children.
