Hi All,
During the last few years, a friend has noticed that her front teeth have gradually changed. It seems as though they are becoming clear in colour. The strong white teeth are still apparent, but only at the top of the tooth near the gum line, the bottom half of the teeth are now changing to almost transparent in colour. There is a noticable straight horizontal line on the teeth where it changes from the normal looking white tooth to the clearer looking tooth. Both front teeth match - line exact same position. They do not seem to be thinning (but again she is not sure as it has been a gradual process) and do not cause pain, but she is worried. She has some inflamation of the gums occasionally. Initially she thought that perhaps it was from mouth breathing when sleeping but now she is not sure. Has anyone heard of this before? Any remedies that might be indicated?

I answered thinking you are a homoeopath, but now see you are not - so the answer is to consult one because it could be one of many remedies.

Hello Anna,
You are correct I am not a homeopath. I have been studying homeopathy, informally, though almost full time, for some 6 months. I find homeopathy very interesting and I have become quite passionate about it. I am currently in the process of looking at formal training leading to a diploma. I feel this is in line with my current methods of healing. I have my 3rd degree reiki and have always used it in conjunction with herbs and nutrition in treating myself and family. We are all quite healthy as a result. Homeopathy, to me, brings it all together and more.
I'm finding it very confusing trying to suss out the various training programs offered, with so many within the homeopathic community at loggerheads with regards to using new remedies, proving methods, systems of education, etc., etc. One only has to look at the lyghtforce list or read the archives here to see that many different views are represented. I do not want to spend thousands of dollars and in the end find that I feel I am not getting the best training. So, for the time being I am an informal student and hopefully as a result will be able to better choose which institution I will enroll in.
Now, if I was a student of a training centre and it was noted in profile....would you have answered? I regret now that I did not write very much in my profile, but after reading some of the archives, I chose to remain as anonymous as possible.

I have no desire to prescribe to my friend. I just found her problem interesting and wasn't able to find anything in the Repertories I have (tho it may be there and I'm just looking in the wrong places - I am, after all, very much a novice) or any of the other books that I have on hand. I also wanted to find out just exactly what the members of the board felt was within the scope of homeopathy. Teeth that turned transparent, could they indeed be changed back to natural whiteness??? Or would the remedy just halt the process. I am intrigued, that is all.
I am sorry you got the wrong impression.
I was under the impression that the purpose of this BB was to share information and help one another learn and clarify those grey areas. Perhaps I was wrong. No, I take that back. I have already learnt a great deal from the members on this board and one very valuable lesson was not to self prescribe or prescribe to others that you are close to - except possibly in acute cases. I also note that many other students, laypersons, & homeopaths on this board have gained a great deal of knowledge.
I was simply asking the question out of curiousity. I had already advised my friend to try and find a good classical,one remedy, one dose, wait and watch, homeopath.
respectfully,
jay

jayj, no offence was intended I promise. I can see looking back at what I wrote it was a bit short, but just because I had a lot to do.

What happenned was that I posted a reply as to how one might procede with treating such a case, if one were a homoeopath, but then checked your profile and saw that you are not a homoeopath, so the advice would not be relevant, so I made a quick revision.

All the best to you in your studies. The best teacher I know of in Canada is Andre Saine. But still not idea in my opinion, though very learned indeed and sincere.

Hi Anna, No problem I often wonder how the homeopaths on this board and other mailing lists find the time to devote to their practice, continuing studies(a must), families and still have the time to share their knowledge & understanding of homeopathic principals on the internet. There is a vast amount of information out there to sort through.

I would still like to hear how one would proceed with treating such a case if one was a homeopath

Unfortunately, due to my current circumstances, distant learning is my only option at this time.

Hi JayJ,

This is how a homeopath would proceed with treating your friend:

A full and case would be taken, in person, in consultation with the patient.

A complete medical history of the patient and her family would be required, as well as a thorough analysis of the information gleaned from the consultation.

Clearly, your friend's ailment is not a simple acute ailment; whatever is happening to your friend has been "in the works" for a long time, and is chronic. Chronic homeopathic treatment simply cannot take place without taking the full case in person, and without proper follow up.

If you're interested in learning about Distance learning options for studying homeopathy in Canada, we can talk in person, off the BB...feel free to contact me privately. There are ways to soften the burden of cost, you know! Perhaps the best way for you to answer your own questions about proper treatment would be do take part in some clinic work with your studies, or approach a school's student clinic for more accessible treatment options for your friend.

Divina

Fluoride in diet, water, toothpaste etc. can cause discoloration of teeth loosing the whiteness. The teeth stay hard but have discoloration.
Fluoricum Acid is a homeopathic remedy to check out. It is the only remedy in the Materia Medica that has see through teeth like glass!

Thank you Divina, cib, Snoopy

I'm not sure it is an enamel problem, but....I don't know much about tooth structure. When my friend went to the dentist, she had an unsatisfactory response to her question about it and since she is not very outspoken, esp with those in "authority", she did not question him further. Does this sound like Sil? I also found it interesting that Sil has ill effects from Vaccinations. She did mention that she noticed this tooth thing about a year after she left on an extended trip through several 3rd world countries. She did have vaccinations before leaving and she also had a wart appear on her foot within that first year. Mmmm And she has had several weird skin eruptions, since her trip as well.

Anyway, she thinks she has found a good homeopath and is planning a trip to see her and perhaps the homeopath will know of a dentist who has homeopathic training.

Thanks again
jay
