Mentadent Advanced Whitening toothpaste

Hi, all, I am new into Homeopathy and I don't want to switch off my regular toothpaste, Mentadent Advanced Whitening. My doctor said I can't have during my treatment mint, and I was wondering if anyone can tell me for sure if you know, if Mentadent has mint in its igredients. I checked the back of the package plus on the internet but can't say for sure. Any help will be greatly appreciated..

Mint does not antidote homoeopathy. This is an old homoeopathic superstition that continues to do the rounds. I have been in practice for 17 years and I have never once seen a patient antidote a curative remedy from using toothpaste, mint, herbal tea, coffee, tomotoes, perfumes, mothballs or any of the other hundred ridiculous things people claim can undo cure.

However, I do often see practitioners blaming their inaccurate prescriptions on patient's use of these substances. You should ask your homoeopath why he or she believes mint is so powerful it can reverse a well-chosen homoeopathic medicine.

There are things that can antidote a medicine while it is working - suppressive treatments like cortisone, powerful drugs like chemotherapy and general anesthetic, other homoeopathic medicines which are too similar to the last one used, acupuncture if it is aimed directly at the aggravation (curative action of the remedy). Mint is not one of them and it shows a poor amount of confidence in homoeopathy to believe so.

Obviously avoiding things that make you unwell is wise - while I have never seen coffee antidote a patient's cure, it is still a drug and some sensitive people will continually degrade their health while they use it. However, it does not have the power to stop a potentized medicine from working.
