Homeopathic Toothpaste? – Myles Reviews

I am the proud owner of a rather unusual collection of weird and wonderful examples of pseudoscientific products. These range from the ridiculous like my kitty chakra healing set to the flat out dangerous like my copy of Christine Maggiore’s ‘What If Everything You Thought You Knew About AIDS Was Wrong’. Although I am sure most of you think that I am wasting my money on this bad science personified, the truth is I get an enormous sense of enjoyment from trying to understand the creator’s point of view and outlook on life. I am therefore always on the look out for the bizarre to add to my collection and often find myself searching through eBay trying to find hidden gems of snake oil. Recently I believe I have found the mother-load, although I did not realise it at the time when I discovered a company selling homeopathic toothpaste.

  1. Hi there!
    I have to admit I am pretty impressed that this ridiculous concoction has arrived to the UK :/ I am Bulgarian and I am pretty familiar with the manufacturer. They are a Russian company, striving to sell so called natural products here. I discovered this particular toothpaste a while ago, when my dentist recommended the mouth-wash. I didn’t buy it, however just a few months later my boyfriend bought this toothpaste, probably by mistake so I had the chance to try the grapefruit version. It is probably as gross as the lemon. I was just as mind-blown by the idea that a homeopathic toothpaste may exist and just like you did a research as thorough as possible, so I got to the root of the idea behind this product. You see, homeopaths say that you should not take mint or coffee in any way while you are treated with homeopathic remedies, because it may render the remedies guess what – ineffective! So that’s when homeopathic toothpastes appeared.

    Here’s some more information from the website of the manufacturer:

    Recently it is observed that more and more parents are highly interested in natural toothpastes for kids that are applicable for homeopathic treatment. This is due to the natural strive our children to grow healthy and strong, aiming at a natural way of life.
    The use of homeopathic remedies becomes widespread and the number of people who prefer to be treated in this alternative way is increasing every year. Many people in Bulgaria as well are treating their children with homeopathy because they believe it is harmless.
    This stimulated us to create new kids natural toothpastes, which are tolerant with the use of homeopathic remedies. Healthy calf’s teeth are a precondition to the health of the teeth in mature age. This is the reason why it is necessary the oral hygiene care to begin with the appearance of the first teeth with appropriate harmless products, of course.

    And here is a bold summary of homeopathic toothpastes by another manufacturer from my country:

    So yes, complete madness. And more and more people around me fall for this BS.

    Wishing you Great Holidays!
