Babies don’t come with an instruction manual and sometimes it’s hard to pinpoint exactly what’s wrong. If your baby is teething, they may:
- have red swollen gums
- chew or gnaw at their gums (and anything else they can get hold of!)
- rub their cheeks and pull their ears
- be irritable and have more restless sleep
- show less interest in their food.

If you are concerned about your baby’s health, always talk to your healthcare professional.
- A refrigerated teething ring can be soothing for your baby to chew on.
- Gently massage your baby’s gums with your own little finger or with some ice.
- Give your baby lots of extra cuddles and comfort.
- Ask family members and friends to help look after bub so you can look after yourself too. Make sure you get some extra rest and time out during the day, especially if you are not getting a good night’s sleep.
- Teething may cause slightly loose bowel motions, but it’s important to know that teething does not cause diarrhoea. Always see your healthcare professional if your baby has diarrhoea.
Since homeopathy was first developed, there has been extensive documentation of clinical experience with this therapy — that is, doctors and other healthcare professionals documenting how their patients respond to treatment prescribed in accordance with the law of similars. In the 19th century, homeopathy became very popular because of impressive results reported in treating people for illnesses that were common then. These results were published in 1900 in a book by T L Bradford MD titled The Logic of Figures or comparative results of homoeopathic and other treatments.
More recently, the results of randomised clinical trials, where homeopathic treatments are compared with a placebo (dummy treatment) or with conventional medicines, have begun to build a more comprehensive picture of homeopathy’s effectiveness. There are now more than 150 scientific studies of homeopathy which fulfil strict evidence criteria and have been published in highly-regarded medical journals. Many of these studies have shown favourable results for homeopathy when compared with a placebo or conventional medicine. 2,3,4,5,6
An extensive review of homeopathic clinical trials (known as a meta-analysis) was published in the British Medical Journal in 1991. This meta-analysis found that 81 of the 107 studies reviewed had a result in favour of homeopathy compared with placebo, while 24 studies did not.5
In late 2011, the Swiss government published the results of its five-year review of homeopathy involving many independent international university researchers. The report has been published as a book and is the most comprehensive review of homeopathy ever undertaken by a government body. The review confirmed that high potency homeopathic medicines appear to stimulate balancing or normalising effects and specific changes in cells or living organisms.
Examining 22 different meta-analyses of homeopathy, the review found that 20 of these showed a trend that was at least in favour of homeopathy.7 The authors concluded that clinical evidence supports a finding that homeopathic treatment is both effective and cost-effective.8 On the other hand, a review of this conclusion suggested that this report is scientifically flawed and misinterprets studies previously exposed as weak.9
