Ch-ch-changes

I know I haven’t been a very good blogger lately. Part of this is just real life (mostly work and kids) interfering with my blogging habit. Some of it, however, is me attempting to make a bit more of this blog than it currently is. I’ve owned the mainstreamparenting.com domain name for a while now, and will be attempting to switch over to a proper website in the near future. So if you can’t access the blog for a little while, you’ll know why.

Wish this technophobe some luck, will ya? :)

  5. Good luck; looking forward to it…

  6. WEll, just remember to let us know where to find you. OK? I have been a bad blogger too. I think that will change soon though. The big news with me is that I am switching my major to nurse practitioner since my spine has acted up again and I was told to find a job that would not stress the spine. So midwife is out and NP who works in the office is in. Looking forward to seeing your new stuff.

    Has questions you can answer

    Is homeopathic treatment for infants with colic dangerous?

    With exquisite timing, three days after the 10^23 mass demonstration of how safe it is to overdose on homeopathic medicines, the journal Pediatrics published an article, which reports on:

    “11 infants who presented with an ALTE [apparent life-threatening event] after ingestion of Gali-col Baby, a homeopathic agent indicated for “infantile colic”

    Three questions immediately spring to mind:

    1. What exactly are apparently life-threatening events (ALTEs)?
    2. What is in Gali-col Baby? Is it truly homeopathic, or does it have active ingredients?
    3. How was the comparison group selected? I.e. did the authors make a fair comparison.

    I have ordered the paper from the library, as I do not have internet access to the journal, and will update this blog when I get it.

    It would be really helpful if someone who reads Hebrew, can do an internet search on Gali-col Baby and tell me what is in it.

    In the mean time I would advise not concluding that homeopathic medicines can cause apparently life-threatening events:

    * there could be active non-homeopathic ingredients in the remedy
    * the remedy could have misled parents into treating seriously ill children with a remedy meant for crying, but otherwise well, babies.
    * the study could have picked up a spurious association

  8. Way to go expanding out to your own hosted domain. You won’t regret it!
