:: a continuum/update from my previous post ::
KB still wears her Amber necklace 24-7... and we get comments on it everywhere we go. Most people think it's just a cute/pretty/funky piece of jewelry... but little do they know, it also serves a purpose other than being pretty! Baltic amber is proven to have analgesic properties in the oils it contains, therefore offering a natural, drug-free alternative to the relief of pain in children & adults alike!
In reality Amber is not a “stone” but a natural, fossilized tree-resin. As it warms with the body’s natural temperature, amber releases its healing oils (containing succinic acid ) which are easily absorbed into the skin and then into the bloodstream. Baltic Amber has some of the highest concentrations of Succinic Acid found in nature - which is what makes it so special. Succinic Acid is a natural component of plant and animal tissues, and it's presence in the human body is beneficial in many ways. From pain relief & anti-inflammatory to immune boosting & energy resoration (the salt of succinic acid (succinate) is one of the most active substances in the processes of cellular respiration and intercellular energy creation. Succinic acid restores oxygen and energy supply to depleted cells and helps the body return to a normal, functioning state.). Historically, Baltic Amber has been used in Europe as a natural and traditional remedy and curative for many ailments for centuries. Long ago it was considered one of the leading ‘medicines’ of its time. Baltic Amber is the most esteemed amber in the world, and the healing qualities of Baltic Amber make it unlike any other type of amber found in the world. It is a completely non-invasive remedy for side effects associated with teething, such as lack of appetite, upset tummies, ear ache, fevers and colds. Baltic amber is also a natural analgesic that will calm your child. Many adults also report improvement of discomfort due to menstruation, joint pain/aches, etc.

Side note/testimony: As of my last posting, my new nephew (5mos) wears an amber necklace too! He has had a early start - and quite the difficult time - with teething.... and my sister has noticed a *drastic* difference in just the short time he's been wearing it! :)
