Arriving Safely – What the Baby Needs

Information for parents on prevention in infancy

What is needed in the first months of a baby’s life for him to arrive safely and grow up? What can parents do to ensure that their child develops well? Vitamin D, fluoride—what makes sense? What do you do about teeth problems? How can caries be prevented? Good sleep—what does it require? How long do we breastfeed and when do we start the baby on solid foods? What does the child need for a healthy diet? How should he be carried?

Answers to these and many other important questions can be found in the following video contributions by the experienced pediatrician Dr. med. Christoph Meinecke.

Pilot study  on the clinical effect of yarrow liver compresses  
Liver compresses are commonly applied in integrative cancer treatment and are believed to have an energizing effect. A randomized pilot study was conducted to investigate the influence of yarrow liver compresses on the autonomic nervous system by analyzing heart rate variability in metastatic cancer patients undergoing radiotherapy and suffering from cancer-related fatigue. The study found that this application led to increased sympathetic activity during daytime in the intervention group, whereas in the control group, which did not receive any external application, increased parasympathetic activity. The study is open access:
