Alternative Bling Review {Giveaway Closed}

I first found out about Baltic Amber when I was in school for Dental Hygiene.  It was sort of a silly thought to me, but an interesting one.  But I hadn't thought too much about it since then. 
Baltic Amber has been used for many centuries as a healing tool – mostly used for pain remedy for dental pain, rheumatoid arthritis, other joint pain, headaches, ear infections, colds, etc.  It is the most desirable type of amber because it contains the most levels of Succinic Acid, which gets absorbed  when put against your warm skin and helps in the body’s Kreb cycle (the energy making process).
So being a Dental Hygienist, I have run across a few (two maybe - and now that I think about it they could have been married - lol) patients over the past several years who have sworn by the fact that their Baltic Amber jewelry has helped them with joint pain, dental pain, etc. and I’ve always been curious! So when I saw the opportunity to try it out for myself (or actually for my kids) I took it! I was given a youth size necklace from www.alternative-bling.com for my kids to try. I’m excited to see how it does when Ethan starts teething – but meanwhile, I’ve been putting it on Andrew!
It’s so hard to say whether it is working or not, especially with a two year old who’s communication consists of basic commands and cookies! But Either way, I’m really excited to see what happens with the teething pain for my 12 week old! We shall see! (aren't my babies just so sweet???)
You can purchase these ever-so-cute Baltic Amber Necklaces, Bracelets, and other things (I think my favorite would have to be the adjustable bracelets and anklets because then you can put them on your babies feet without worrying as much about them strangling themselves!) at www.alternative-bling.com.
