What is Colic?
It is fairly common for babies to go through periods when they appear abnormally irritable, fussy, or seem to cry for no reason. Some babies are fussier than others and may even be described as “colicky.” Colic can be defined as excessive crying or fussiness, usually in the late afternoon. It starts around 2 weeks and generally resolves or is resolving by 12 weeks. Rarely does it endure past six months of age. Pediatricians often use Wessel’s criteria, referred to as the "rule of 3's" to define colic: inconsolable crying for 3 hours per day, at least 3 times a week for at least 3 weeks, though in practice, colic may be more loosely defined. About 25 percent or 1 out of 4 babies worldwide meet the official “Rule of Three's” criteria for medical diagnosis of colic.
How Colic Calm Works
Colic Calm combines 8 safe and effective homeopathic remedies that gently encourage baby’s body to heal itself. Unlike traditional “gripe waters” on the market that simply suppress symptoms, our unique formula targets colic symptoms and provides fast-acting relief. Our natural active ingredients adhere to the impurities in your little one’s delicate digestive system and work to break them down in a gentle, fast-acting way.
The key ingredient in Colic Calm is carbo vegetabilis (vegetable charcoal). Charcoal, or carbon, as it is called, is the most abundant element on Earth. Carbon is an important element; the human body is composed of 18% carbon (65-75% of the body is water). It works by a process called adsorption (this is different from absorption, which means to incorporate or assimilate a substance). Vegetable charcoal is an inactive material which passes through the intestines without being absorbed itself. On its way, it collects toxins and wastes via adsorption. It also adsorbs gases, thus relieving flatulence, bloating and gas pains. It is fully excreted in bowel movements and will darken stools. Because it is not a drug, it has no direct action on any organ of the body, it does not enter the blood stream, nor is the vegetable carbon itself absorbed into the body. All of it passes out of the body system naturally and easily, along with the gases and toxins it has collected on its journey.
