I am pretty sure that DS has an enamel defect- his grandmother and cousin both have one too.  I am currently looking for a dentist for him. I have made some changes to our diet, which was already pretty great but i've added in raw milk, grass fed butter, bone broths, xylitol toothpaste 2x daily plus in his water as well as calc phos and i recently bought bioplasma. my question is, if he takes the bioplasma, does he need to take the calc phos? would it be too much calc phos or is more better in this case?

 

thanks

I'd do both.  but really, for an enamel defect, calc fluor is more what you want.

I don't know the full picture.  But for deficient enamel what you want is calc fluor, not calc phos.  you can certainly do it in addition to bioplasma.

Dont mean to threadjack your post but I was wondering what is the duration for which typically these salts need to be administered?

depends on the issue, how long it's been present, the intensity of it, how responsive the person is etc.  it will vary from case to case.  if the issue is something that is clearly observable then you just kind of go by the symptoms.  as they get less aggressive or the duration is shorter then you know you can start backing off.  there are people who need to be on them for long stretches as well, so unfortunately there's no one size fits all answer!

 

you can check out the cell salt thread in H&H for more info if you like!

Thanks for your response! My 20 month old has ECC on 3 of his teeth and I have started giving him calc flour. I plan to start giving him calc phos as well (along with other options discussed on this forum like xylitol etc). So does this mean I need to continue till I dont see the cavities any more?

I was wondering if something like calc phos needs to be continued for longer stretches irrespective of the cavities, as a sort of supplement...

possibly.  the cavities are indicative of a deep need for that salt, so even when the cavities are being healed it's possible that you may need to continue giving it.  doing so will not hurt anything-they are adaptogenic for lack of a better term.  you can't hurt the situation by giving them longer than they are needed, it's not as though they build up in the tissues or anything.

Thank you!
I was browsing through the h&h thread youmentioned. It is very informative and I have a lot to catch up on!
So while I do that a quick question that popped up when read up some info.
I have been giving my son this-calc flour from the list
http://www.boironusa.com/products/name-single-medicines.php
Is this a cell salt? I am worried I have beengiving him something I shouldn't have?
This goes back to whether this is a remedy or cellsalt and what should be administered in this case....
Sorry this is a panic post!
