Eurythmy Therapy for Ascites

Therapeutic recommendations

  • Stimulate the patient’s life forces and a feeling of lightness with “L”
    “L” stimulates the flowing vital forces and brings an experience of lightness. It also has a strong creative power in the contrasting area of the form principle. You can start with the “L” in the periphery and steadily reduce the size of it – moving over and around the abdomen – towards the center.

  • Stimulate warmth generation with “M”
    “M” is the sound which, like humming, holds a penetrating force in the human being and stimulates the generation of warmth in the direction in which it is carried out. “M” can be moved in all directions – around, on, and also with the belly.

  • The sound movements “B” and “G”
    “B” and “G” , as contrasting movements, create densification and widening of movement to release congestion.

  • “B” and “A” stimulate fluid-regulating kidney activity.

  •  “D” has a penetrating and shaping effect and strengthens digestion.

  • The sound sequence “L – M – S – U – B – E – R”
    The sounds “L – M – S – U – B – E – R”, when they are worked into the feet of a patient lying down, also have a releasing character, which causes movement right into the abdominal cavity through deepened breathing.

Parental Confidence in Fever Management - Results from an App-Based Registry    
Parents' confidence regarding their children's fever is a key factor in its management and there is still unnecessary anxiety and associated antipyretic overuse. The FeverApp application collects naturalistic real-time data on febrile infections and educates parents on fever management. First entry data of 3721 children (mean age 21 months) was assessed. Antipyretics were used initially in 14.7% of children. Their use was mostly associated with febrile temperature, but also low well-being of the children. Thus, associations were partly in accordance with recent guidelines. All results are published open access:
