K Attn: Dr. Rishimba - Please Help - Severe tooth decay in a 3 year old girl

My 3 year old girl has few teeth being decayed. Four of her front tooth already broke off at the outside and the there are to or three other teeth turning black or brownish back with pits forming.

She had eczema but is she is cured of it now. She was allergic to many food items and that is mostly cured and she is able to eat many kinds of food. We don't ever feed her sweets or any processed food at all. All her meals are home cooked. I have given her some different remedies earlier, so I am not sure what cured it or if it cured naturally

Can you please look into this and help with a remedy? I posted this and others suggested that I ask this question to you for a remedy.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Please describe the child wrt her nature, personality, behavioral traits, interaction with other children, strangers, visitors and finally family members.

Do you know any of her fears and repeated dreams? How is her sleep and how does she behave after getting up from sleep.

Describe her thermal preferences, food cravings, any abnormal cravings, thirst, hunger, thirst, sweat, any peculiarities in her stool or urine etc.

Thank you for the reply.

Here are the answers to your questions.

She is a bubbly little girl with a lot of energy. She likes to run and play around. (This has bee the case for last 6 months or so, before that she seemed to have less energy and less appetite).

She is mischievous and likes to do things to her older sister - like pulling her hair, hitting her etc.She is fine with her father and loves him but need to see her mother very often. She is shy with strangers and it takes time for her to get used to other people. She gets easy with little kids faster.

She fears loud sounds (like thunder, loud motorcycles, police/ambulance etc.). She sleeps well except that she wakes up once or twice for breastfeeding. After getting up from her sleep, she is quite calm (does not cry) and calls out for her mother. She is generally not cranky except when she wants breast milk and if she does not get it. If there is any craving, I think it is probably for breast milk. Not sure if she has a preference of sweet or spicy food but we don't give her much sweet food because of her teeth condition.

She is quite hungry often and eats something once every 30 minutes to 1 hour.

She does not sweat much and has regular stool and urine. She does not drink much water, so she is probably less thirsty.

She is thin and probably has a little bit lower weight than many kids of her age but is very tall and the height might be on the higher side. I think her hair is sort of weak and does not grow as thick or fast as it should.

I hope I have described what you were looking for. Please let me know if you want more clarification on anything.

Please give weekly doses of CALC PHOS 200C for 3 weeks and then come back to share your observations after a month.

Thank you.

I have calc phos 30 C but not 200C. I have to order online since that potency is not available at stores where I live.

Should I order pills or go for liquid dilution? How many times a day do I give her and and how many pills? Please advice.

Dr., I just ordered calc phos 200c pellets online. Please let me know the daily dosage for the next 3 weeks.

Dr., In addition, I missed one thing. She was allergic to milk and eggs and used to get redness on her skin it touches her skin. She does not have that anymore but still does not like eggs and milk. She says she 'feels' something in her throat when she drinks milk. Though there is no visible signs, I think she has some sensitivity to milk and eggs. Not sure if this changes the remedy suggested.

She eats homepathic pills without any problem at all.

CALC PHOS 200C is to be given once in a week, not everyday.

You can continue for some weeks and see the change. Once you see her abnormal craving for breast milk has reduced, you know that the remedy has acted. Subsequently, her physical problems will also be relieved.

I guess in a month's time you will see improvements in her.

One dose would be 3 drops of remedy in some 10 ml of water sipped up in empty stomach. No food or water one hour before or after.

If you have pills, dissolve 3 pills in 10 ml of water and let her sip it up.

Dr. Rishimba, I want to thank you for your suggestion. It appears that the remedy is working. We had given her two weekly doses. She had increased craving for breast milk for sometime after the medicine was given but it seemed to have gradually reduced. We have stopped breast feeding totally without too much crying or trouble. (She is 3 and it is probably time to stop anyway.)

But her tooth condition has not improved, it seems to be deteriorating little bit actually. A new teeth appear to have started decaying! Please help and suggest on what we should do now.Her teeth is in extremely bad condition and we would be extremely grateful if we are able to at least stop further decay.

Thank you so much.

Here are the answers:

1. How was her eczema treated?
She has taken a few homeopathy remedies, I don't know what they were as I had consulted a practitioner. But I think what helped more is her diet - we have included more fat in her diet - butter, oil, bone broth, meat and fish etc.

2. What was happening in her life six months back when her energy levels changed for the better?
I believe it is the food. Increasing fats and reducing grains such as rice. I think that made a huge difference

3. When was the first decay of tooth noticed with respect to her onset of eczema, eczema treatment or changed energy levels six months back?
She had eczema from a few days after she was born. Tooth decay started about a year and a half back (she just turned 3 now). I think she had eczema and beginning of tooth decay at about 1.5 to 2. We actually made changes to her diet for her tooth condition based on the book Curing Tooth Decay Naturally by ramiel nigel. I think the change in her diet helped increase her energy level and in curing eczema. Looking at the overall time line, I can say that eczema cured off and tooth decay started though they overlapped for some time. But she had eczema much before her tooth even came out.

4. Is she moody? Like, asking for something and then rejecting it as soon as she gets it..!!
No she is not. she asks for things to keep with her, she fights with her older sister for things once in a while. She also has a stuffed teddy bear that she takes with her all the time, especially while going to sleep.

5. Is there any pain or bleeding in the gums?
Surprisingly no. She rarely hurts when she brushes or eats hard food but she does not normally have any pain. Her four main front tooth has decayed and chipped away more than half. When she smiles, what we see is the brown remaining of her teeth (very unfortunate for her and very heart breaking for us, her parents). But she does not complain of pain and there is no bleeding at all.

6. Does she have any abnormal craving for indigestible things like chalk, wood or soil etc? Have you even seen her chewing these things?
No, she does not normally put anything nonfood into her mouth. I have never seen her do anything like that (unlike many other kids)

8. How is her perspiration and which part of the body does she sweat most? What is the smell of her sweat like?
She hardly sweats. We live in cold climatic condition and winter just got over.. When summer sets in, I might be able to answer this. But I don't think she sweats too much or has any peculiar smells. Actually, I believe she did not sweat at all before and that is one reason she had eczema (earlier)

9. Did she have less energy levels from her birth which changed just six months back?
At birth she was a normal baby.. she was pretty calm and gentle, hardly cried or made any fuss if she was fed on time.. she got off her diaper very fast, before she reached 2, she started using potty..

Up to one year old, everything looked normal (except eczema).. Probably that is the time when her energy levels went down but it was hardly noticeable. But when we made changes to her diet, within few months, her energy level increased and she was playing more and doing more physical activity etc.

Please let me know if you need any other information. I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Some more questions..

1. Does she like to be hugged and caressed?

2.Is she comfortable in warm or cool weather?

3.Apart from eczema, what other ailments she generally suffers from?
 
rishimba 4 years ago
Here are the answers.. Not straightforward because I am not sure about the correct answer.

1. Does she like to be hugged and caressed?
I don't think she particularly cares too much to be hugged or caressed. She likes it, of course, but not in a normal way, not excessive. But she generally likes to be around her mother. If her mother goes anywhere leaving her with her father or anyone else, she keeps asking especially when she get hungry.

2.Is she comfortable in warm or cool weather?
Not sure. She probably likes it colder. I am saying this only because she usually pushes blankets away when she goes to sleep and when rest of us are comfortable in blanket. Previously I thought she was not comfortable in cold because her eczema seemed to be little more during winter time.. but this year, she did not have any problem with eczema.

3.Apart from eczema, what other ailments she generally suffers from?
Other than eczema and teeth issues, she is also allergic to some things, though it is mostly cured. She was earlier to allergic to so many things - milk, eggs, nuts, lentils, orange/lemon/pineapple.. but she is fine with all that now.. she still seem not to be comfortable with milk but she likes curd/yogurt etc.. not sure about nuts, we have not given to her much but she ate peanuts couple of times by mistake and did not have any problem.. so I think she is fine with that too

If CALC PHOS hasn't worked on her decayed teeth, you can try PHOSPHORUS 200C one dose once in 15 days. Give one dose and let me know if you see a change in the next 15 days.
 
rishimba 4 years ago
One thing I missed - she does have pain when brushing or eating something hard on some teeth. Otherwise there is no pain.

Also once recently she ate something that had its seed go into a decayed teeth (I think) and her upper lips got swollen with pain for one day.

Does this make any difference in the remedy? Please let me know.

I can't think of any other remedy better than calc phos and phos with what you have said.

Look up Kreosotum but I don't think your daughter's personality or modality is matching that remedy.

You can try Phos if Calc doesn't work.
 
rishimba 4 years ago
Ok, will try phos and see. Hopefully, it works.

If not, I will discuss with you and will try Kreosotum later at that point of time.
