Thanks for your response, Bluets. I do work with a homeopath, who has given my DD various remedies (constitutional and acutes) over the years. I know we have talked about the teeth grinding in recent consultations. I brought up the cell salts to her last summer and she was one of those homeopaths that does not support them. Not sure she really even understood what they were as she looked at the 6x on my Bioplasma and said that was a high dose of all those things--my understanding is it's not the same as homeopathic dosages. I have not tried determining remedies myself (this is a bit frustrating...always feeling like I have to call my homeopath and pay each time we have an acute issue). Cell salts seemed somehow simpler in that there are only 12 to choose from.
Anyway, interesting about the parasites. I really hope that is not what it is. Is this what you think it is tied to in your DS? Is Cinca specific to parasites? Guess I better look up what other symptoms come a long with that. I have always thought her digestion was pretty good--she is my good pooper :) But she has always had sleep issues and is a very picky eater! And when she was x-rayed at the chiropractor she showed lots of gas. Her neck is quite messed up, and we have been using chiro to try and correct this, so I was hoping that has some to do with the grinding. Of course the pedi and the pedi dentist says it's normal for kids to grind.
Thanks again for your response.
Yes, like PB, I'm surprised at your homeopath's response. Then again, cell salts are sometimes out of homeopathic purview due to philosophy. (Or, dare I even think it? Maybe not a well trained homeopath?)
My mentor will do free phone consults for regular clients for acute issues, for the most part, though he does have a piece of text in his disclaimer documents that threaten fees for consults.
You say her neck is messed up. In what way? And how is her overall alignment? Usually, where there is one region of hypermobility, there is an opposing region of hypomobility. My guess would be some instability elsewhere - lumbar? sacral region? And if lumbar, that would explain the gas :) And if not a spinal instability, then there could be something else going on in the cranial region. My bias is clear - I don't think chiro has a complete picture of bony health; if it were my child, I would head to a cranial osteopath, someone who might have connections to the Sutherland Society. I'm blessed in that my HCP is a classical osteopath with a layer of naturopathic training - so we get the best of both worlds.
IT IS NOT NORMAL FOR ANYONE TO GRIND THEIR TEETH! That is why it can be listed as a symptom (even a keynote, sometimes) in homeopathic repertories/materia medica.
Enough digression for this cell salts thread. :) I'd agree with PB on the suggestion for 5-phos and calc fluor. Calc fluor would help loosen up tissues, improve elasticity, and help maintain any manipulations/adjustments, so it wouldn't hurt as well.
