OBJECTIVE: Even though several German children's hospitals offer integrative, anthroposophic medical therapies in addition to the standard medical care, guidelines for these anthroposophic therapies are still rare. Therefore, we investigated the feasibility of implementing a published, consensus-based guideline for the treatment of children with acute gastroenteritis (aGE) with anthroposophic therapies in the community hospital Herdecke. DESIGN: A prospective case series of paediatric patients (≤18 years) with an aGE admitted to the department of integrative paediatrics of the community hospital Herdecke was conducted. Demographic, clinical and therapeutic data was recorded at initial presentation and at follow-up visits. Physicians were surveyed with a questionnaire to evaluate feasibility of implementing the guideline. RESULTS: Sixty-two patients (0-15 years; 22 male, 40 female) were included in the case series. All patients received some form of anthroposophic therapy. The most frequently used remedies were Geum urbanum, Nux vomica and Bolus alba comp. Treating physicians showed a high adherence to the expert-based consensus guideline in their prescribed therapies. All physicians stated that they were familiar with the guideline and used the recommendation to inform their therapy decision. Suitability for daily use and effectiveness in treating the main symptoms of aGE were highly scored by the physicians. CONCLUSION: The consensus-based guideline of anthroposophic therapies for aGE in children was successfully implemented and found to be useful for physicians in clinical practice.

BACKGROUND: Medical guidelines are an important basis for qualitative and cost-effective patient care. However, there is a lack of clinical recommendations in anthroposophic medicine (AM), an integrative medicine approach frequently practised in Europe. Acute tonsillitis, which includes tonsillopharyngitis, is a common childhood disease. that is mostly caused by a viral infection. Symptomatic treatment is therefore of high importance, and AM can offer several therapy options. METHODS: 53 physicians from Germany, Spain, Netherlands, Switzerland, Austria, and Hungary with at least one year of experience in anthroposophic paediatric medicine were invited to participate in an online Delphi process. The process comprises five survey rounds starting with open-ended questions and ending with final statements, which need 75% agreement of experts to reach consensus. Expert answers were evaluated by two independent reviewers using MAXQDA and Excel. RESULTS: Response rate was between 28% and 45%. The developed recommendation included 15 subtopics. These covered clinical, diagnostic, therapeutic and psychosocial aspects of acute tonsillitis. Six subtopics achieved a high consensus (>90%) and nine subtopics achieved consensus (75-90%). CONCLUSION: The clinical recommendation for acute tonsillitis in children aims to simplify everyday patient care and provide decision-making support when considering and prescribing anthroposophic therapies. Moreover, the recommendation makes AM more transparent for physicians, parents, and maybe political stakeholders as well.

BACKGROUND: Due to low vaccination uptake and measles outbreaks across Europe, public health authorities have paid increasing attention to anthroposophic communities. Public media outlets have further described these communities as vaccine refusers or "anti-vaxxers". The aim of this review was to understand the scope of the problem and explore assumptions about vaccination beliefs in anthroposophic communities. For the purpose of this review, we define anthroposophic communities as people following some/certain views more or less loosely connected to the philosophies of anthroposophy. The systematic review addresses three research questions and (1) collates evidence documenting outbreaks linked to anthroposophic communities, (2) literature on vaccination coverage in anthroposophic communities, and (3) lastly describes literature that summarizes theories and factors influencing vaccine decision-making in anthroposophic communities. METHODS: This is a systematic review using the following databases: Medline, Web of Science, Psycinfo, and CINAHL. Double-blinded article screening was conducted by two researchers. Data was summarized to address the research questions. For the qualitative research question the data was analysed using thematic analysis with the assistance of Nvivo12.0. RESULTS: There were 12 articles documenting 18 measles outbreaks linked to anthroposophic communities between the years 2000 and 2012. Seven articles describe lower vaccination uptake in anthroposophic communities than in other communities, although one article describes that vaccination coverage in low-income communities with a migrant background was lower than in the anthroposophic community they studied. We found eight articles examining factors and theories influencing vaccine decision making in anthroposophic communities. The qualitative analysis revealed four common themes. Firstly, there was a very broad spectrum of vaccine beliefs among the anthroposophic communities. Secondly, there was a consistent narrative about problems or concerns with vaccines, including toxicity and lack of trust in the system. Thirdly, there was a strong notion of the importance of making individual and well-informed choices as opposed to simply following the masses. Lastly, making vaccine choices different from public health guidelines was highly stigmatized by those outside of the anthroposophic community but also those within the community. CONCLUSION: Continuing to further knowledge of vaccine beliefs in anthroposophic communities is particularly important in view of increasing measles rates and potential sudden reliance on vaccines for emerging diseases. However, popular assumptions about vaccine beliefs in anthroposophic communities are challenged by the data presented in this systematic review.

O mapa apresenta uma visão geral das evidências sobre os efeitos da Medicina Antroposófica, referida na PNPIC como Antroposofia Aplicada à Saúde, em função de sua natureza multiprofissional. A partir de uma ampla busca bibliográfica foram incluídos no mapa 33 estudos de revisão que analisaram o efeito de intervenções com medicamentos antroposóficos, terapias antroposóficas e terapias multimodais para desfechos clínicos. No mapa estão representadas 63 associações entre 5 tipos de intervenções e 19 desfechos clínicos, com indicação do efeito reportado e nível de confiança da evidência reportada nos estudos. Principais Achados: • As intervenções foram organizadas em três grupos: Medicamentos Antroposóficos (Viscum album ­ 22 revisões e Outros medicamentos ­ 4 revisões), Terapias Antroposóficas (Euritmia ­ 2 revisões e Outras terapias ­ 1 revisão) e Terapias Multimodais (Em Geral ­ 4 revisões). • As intervenções foram associadas a 19 desfechos ordenados em cinco grupos: Bem-estar e Qualidade de Vida, Câncer, Atenção à Saúde, Indicadores Fisiológicos e Metabólicos e Outras Condições Patológicas. • A maioria das associações foi para o grupo de desfecho Câncer, seguido pelo grupo Bem-estar e Qualidade de Vida. Dentre os desfechos, destaque para: Qualidade de Vida (12 revisões), Sobrevida (9 revisões), Segurança do Paciente (8 revisões) e Sintomas de Quimioterapia e Radioterapia (7 revisões). • Dentre as intervenções, a maioria das associações foi para Viscum album (48 associações). • As intervenções multimodais, outros medicamentos, Euritmia e outras terapias foram associadas aos desfechos: Resultado do tratamento (5 associações), Satisfação e Segurança do paciente (2 associações cada), Infecções respiratórias (3 associações), Coordenação cardiorrespiratória, Transtornos gastrointestinais e Edema (1 associação cada). Implicações para a prática e pesquisa: • Considerando os efeitos positivos reportados (em 27 associações), destaque para o uso de medicamento antroposófico Viscum album (19 associações) para os desfechos Qualidade de Vida, Segurança do Paciente e Sintomas de Quimioterapia e Radioterapia. • Quanto aos efeitos potencialmente positivos (em 21 associações), a maioria foi associado ao Viscum album (18 associações) para os desfechos: Sobrevida ao câncer, Sintomas de Quimioterapia e Radioterapia e Qualidade de Vida. • Identificaram-se efeitos inconclusivos em 15 associações para 11 diferentes desfechos, o que sugere uma necessidade de novos estudos primários sobre intervenções com medicamentos e terapias antroposóficas. • Não foram identificados estudos com ausência de efeito ou efeitos negativos.

The map provides an overview of the evidence on the effects of Anthroposophic Medicine, referred to in the National Policy on Integrative and Complementary Practices (PNPIC) as applied Anthroposophy in Health, due to its multiprofessional nature. Based on an extensive literature search, the map includes 33 review studies that analyzed the effects of interventions with anthroposophic medicines, anthroposophic therapies, and multimodal therapies on clinical outcomes. The map represents 63 associations between 5 types of interventions and 19 clinical outcomes, indicating the reported effect and level of confidence in the evidence reported in the studies. Key Findings: • The interventions were organized into three groups: Anthroposophic Medicines (Viscum album - 22 reviews and Other medicines - 4 reviews), Anthroposophic Therapies (Eurythmy - 2 reviews and Other therapies - 1 review), and Multimodal Therapies (Overall - 4 reviews). • The interventions were associated with 19 outcomes grouped into five categories: Well-being and Quality of Life, Cancer, Healthcare, Physiological and Metabolic Indicators, and other Pathological Conditions. • The majority of associations were found in the Cancer outcome group, followed by the Well-being and Quality of Life group. Notable outcomes included Quality of Life (12 reviews), Survival (9 reviews), Patient Safety (8 reviews), and Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy Symptoms (7 reviews). • Among the interventions, the majority of associations were related to Viscum album (48 associations). • Multimodal interventions, other medicines, eurythmy, and other therapies were associated with outcomes such as Treatment Outcome (5 associations), Patient Satisfaction and Safety (2 associations each), Respiratory Infections (3 associations), Cardiorespiratory Coordination, Gastrointestinal Disorders, and Edema (1 association each). Implications for Practice and Research: • Considering the reported positive effects (in 27 associations), the use of anthroposophic medicines Viscum album (19 associations) stands out for Quality of Life, Patient Safety, and Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy Symptoms outcomes. • Regarding potentially positive effects (in 21 associations), the majority were associated with Viscum album (18 associations) for Cancer Survival, Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy Symptoms, and Quality of Life outcomes. • Inconclusive effects were identified in 15 associations for 11 different outcomes, suggesting a need for further primary studies on interventions with anthroposophic medicines and therapies. • No studies were identified with no effect or negative effects.

O objetivo do presente manuscrito é caracterizar e descrever os fluxos do Sistema de Avaliação de Práticas Psicológicas Aluízio Lopes de Brito (SAPP), dispositivo instituído no âmbito do Sistema Conselhos de Psicologia e regulamentado pelo Conselho Federal de Psicologia através da Resolução CFP nº 15, de 18 de agosto de 2023. O SAPP surge da necessidade premente de orientação e qualificação profissionais frente às práticas emergentes que produzem o saber/ fazer da psicologia. Nesse sentido, trata-se de processo que busca orientar, qualificar e fazer conhecer práticas que sejam compatíveis ou não com o exercício profissional em psicologia. Com o trabalho realizado no SAPP serão produzidos pareceres que contribuirão minimamente para o conhecimento das fronteiras que delimitam os campos da psicologia e, por excelência, conheceremos melhor nossas próprias formas de atuação. Através da consideração do trinômio teoria-prática-ética, o CFP espera com o SAPP abrir diálogos com grupos, práticas e saberes fronteiriços e constantemente relegados pela psicologia hegemônica. Para tanto, parte do pressuposto de que os saberes e fazeres destas populações podem refinar as teorias psicológicas e fazer a psicologia avançar como ciência e profissão.(AU)

This manuscript aims to characterize and describe the flows of the Aluízio Lopes de Brito Psychological Practices Assessment System (SAPP), an instrument established within the framework of the Psychology Council System and regulated by the Federal Council of Psychology (CFP) with Resolution CFP No. 15, of August 18, 2023. The SAPP arises from the pressing need for professional guidance and qualification in the face of emerging practices that shape the knowledge/practice of psychology. In this sense, it is a process that seeks to guide, qualify, and make known practices that are compatible or not with the professional practice of psychology. The work carried out in the SAPP will produce opinions that will contribute minimally to the understanding of the boundaries that delimit the fields of psychology and, by excellence, we will better understand our own modes of operation. Considering the trinity of theory-practice-ethics, the CFP hopes with the SAPP to open dialogues with groups, practices, and knowledge that are in the borders and are constantly relegated by hegemonic psychology. To this end, it assumes that the knowledge and practices of these populations can refine psychological theories and advance psychology as a science and profession.(AU)

El objetivo de este manuscrito es caracterizar y describir los flujos del Sistema de Evaluación de Prácticas Psicológicas Aluízio Lopes de Brito (SAPP), un dispositivo establecido en el marco del Sistema de Consejos de Psicología y regulado por el Consejo Federal de Psicología a través de la Resolución CFP n.º 15, con fecha del 18 de agosto de 2023. El SAPP surge de la necesidad apremiante de orientación y calificación profesional frente a las prácticas emergentes que configuran el conocimiento y las habilidades de la psicología. En este sentido, es un proceso que busca orientar, calificar y dar a conocer prácticas que sean compatibles o no con el ejercicio profesional de la psicología. El trabajo realizado en el SAPP generará opiniones que contribuirán mínimamente a la comprensión de los límites que delimitan los campos de la psicología y, por excelencia, comprender mejor nuestras propias formas de actuación. A través de la consideración de la tríada teoría-práctica-ética, el CFP espera que con el SAPP puede llevar a cabo el diálogo con grupos, prácticas y conocimientos fronterizos y constantemente pasados por alto por la psicología hegemónica. Con este fin, se asume que los conocimientos y prácticas de estas poblaciones pueden refinar las teorías psicológicas y hacer avanzar la psicología como ciencia y profesión.(AU)

No decorrer da história, sempre foram infindáveis os casos em que os sujeitos recorriam a centros espíritas ou terreiros de religiões de matrizes africanas em decorrência de problemas como doenças, desempregos ou amores mal resolvidos, com o objetivo de saná-los. Por conta disso, este artigo visa apresentar os resultados da pesquisa relacionados ao objetivo de mapear os processos de cuidado em saúde ofertados em três terreiros de umbanda de uma cidade do litoral piauiense. Para isso, utilizamos o referencial da Análise Institucional "no papel". Os participantes foram três líderes de terreiros e os respectivos praticantes/consulentes dos seus estabelecimentos religiosos. Identificamos perspectivas de cuidado que se contrapunham às racionalidades biomédicas, positivistas e cartesianas, e faziam referência ao uso de plantas medicinais, ao recebimento de rezas e passes e à consulta oracular. A partir desses resultados, podemos perceber ser cada vez mais necessário, portanto, que os povos de terreiros protagonizem a construção, implementação e avaliação das políticas públicas que lhe sejam específicas.(AU)

In history, there have always been endless cases of people turning to spiritual centers or terreiros of religions of African matrices due to problems such as illnesses, unemployment, or unresolved love affairs. Therefore, this article aims to present the research results related to the objective of mapping the health care processes offered in three Umbanda terreiros of a city on the Piauí Coast. For this, we use the Institutional Analysis reference "on Paper." The participants were three leaders of terreiros and the respective practitioners/consultants of their religious establishments. We identified perspectives of care that contrasted with biomedical, positivist, and Cartesian rationalities and referred to the use of medicinal plants, the prescript of prayers and passes, and oracular consultation. From these results, we can see that it is increasingly necessary, therefore, that the peoples of the terreiros lead the construction, implementation, and evaluation of public policies that are specific to them.(AU)

A lo largo de la historia, siempre hubo casos en los cuales las personas buscan en los centros espíritas o terreros de religiones africanas la cura para sus problemas, como enfermedades, desempleo o amoríos mal resueltos. Por este motivo, este artículo pretende presentar los resultados de la investigación con el objetivo de mapear los procesos de cuidado en salud ofrecidos en tres terreros de umbanda de una ciudad del litoral de Piauí (Brasil). Para ello, se utiliza el referencial del Análisis Institucional "en el Papel". Los participantes fueron tres líderes de terreros y los respectivos practicantes / consultivos de los establecimientos religiosos que los mismos conducían. Se identificaron perspectivas de cuidado que se contraponían a las racionalidades biomédicas, positivistas y cartesianas, y hacían referencia al uso de plantas medicinales, al recibimiento de rezos y pases y a la consulta oracular. Los resultados permiten concluir que es cada vez más necesario que los pueblos de terreros sean agentes protagónicos de la construcción, implementación y evaluación de las políticas públicas destinadas específicamente para ellos.(AU)

As Práticas Integrativas e Complementares (PICs) apresentam-se como métodos coadjuvantes, auxiliando na obtenção de sucesso em determinados tratamentos clínicos e/ou cirúrgicos, atuando na prevenção, auxiliando na cura e no equilíbrio psicossomático com a finalidade de reestabelecer concordância entre mente e corpo. O Conselho Federal de Odontologia (CFO) regulamentou práticas como acupuntura, hipnose, terapia floral e fitoterapia, entretanto, suas aplicabilidades dependem da emissão de uma habilitação e seu devido registro no Conselho (Resolução CFO 82/2008). Para a Odontologia, as PICs proporcionam novas ferramentas para exercer um atendimento integral do ser humano. Neste trabalho, propõe-se fazer uma revisão de literatura sobre as PICs e Odontologia. Esta revisão de literatura foi realizada por meio de busca de artigos na base de dados Scielo, PubMed e Scholar Google no período de 2000 a 2021. Foram encontrados artigos sobre as seguintes PICs atuando conjuntamente com a Odontologia: terapias florais, acupuntura, hipnodontia, ozonioterapia, laserterapia, fitoterapia, homeopatia e odontologia antroposófica. Essas práticas apresentam grande valia, pois promovem o bem-estar sem causar dano ao indivíduo, apresentando poucos ou nenhum efeito colateral possibilitando maior segurança aos pacientes, além de favorecer a relação entre paciente e cirurgião-dentista, otimizando o tempo de trabalho no consultório odontológico e reduzindo custos.

Integrative and Complementary Practices (PICs) are presented as supporting methods, helping to achieve success in certain clinical and/or surgical treatments, acting in prevention, assisting in healing and psychosomatic balance in order to reestablish agreement between mind and body. . The Federal Council of Dentistry (CFO) has regulated practices such as acupuncture, hypnosis, floral therapy and herbal medicine, however, their applicability depends on the issuance of a license and its proper registration with the Council (Resolution CFO 82/2008). For Dentistry, PICs provide new tools to provide comprehensive care to human beings. In this work, we propose to review the literature on PICs and Dentistry. This literature review was carried out by searching articles in the Scielo, PubMed and Scholar Google databases from 2000 to 2021. Articles were found on the following PICs working together with Dentistry: floral therapies, acupuncture, hypnodontics, ozone therapy , laser therapy, phytotherapy, homeopathy and anthroposophic dentistry. These practices are of great value, as they promote well-being without causing harm to the individual, presenting few or no side effects, allowing greater safety for patients, in addition to favoring the relationship between patient and dentist, optimizing working time in the dental office and reducing costs.

RESUMEN: Los avances de la medicina moderna nos han permitido la subespecialización de diversas áreas, con gran ganancia en múltiples ámbitos, pero adoleciendo a veces de perder la perspectiva del ser humano completo. La salud como la enfermedad suceden a un sujeto que es más que la suma de sus partes. La psiquiatría, especialmente la de enlace, busca integrar las miradas y superar la "falsa escisión" del ser. Logra hacerlo cuando el síntoma inicia en la psiquis. La medicina psicosomática emerge como oportunidad de hacerlo cuando el síntoma/enfermedad se origina en el cuerpo. Se presenta la historia de una persona, que presenta una enfermedad orgánica muy frecuente en nuestros días, abordando lo convencional y clásico, sumando además la mirada psicosomática. Para ello usa las herramientas de la medicina integrativa, específicamente las de la medicina antroposófica y terapia artística de dicha corriente. El objeto de su presentación es mostrar esta mirada de como enfocar a estos paciente y su acompañamiento terapéutico, que intenta reunificar psique-soma como una forma de sanación del Ser. Este enfoque propone un camino concreto, con una mirada y un lenguaje común, entre diversas especialidades, que permita recuperar el lugar de centro de la identidad del ser humano, como ser sujeto a acompañar en salud y enfermedad. Pienso que esto puede tener beneficios en la morbi- mortalidad de los pacientes.

ABSTRACT The advances of modern medicine have allowed us to subspecialize in various areas, with great gain in multiple areas, but sometimes suffering from losing the perspective of the complete human being. Health and illness happen to a subject who is more than the sum of its parts. Liaison Psychiatry seeks to integrate the looks and overcome the "false split" of being. It manages to do it when the symptom starts in the psyche. Psychosomatic medicine emerges as an opportunity to do so when the symptom / illness originates in the body. I present the story of a pathient, who has a very frequent organic disease in our days, addressing the conventional view, and also adding the psychosomatic perspective. For this we use the tools of integrative medicine, specifically those of anthroposophic medicine and artistic therapy. The purpose of his presentation is to show this sight of how to approach these patients and their therapeutic accompaniment, which tries to reunify psyche-somatism as a form of healing of the Being. This approach proposes a concrete path, with a common sight and language, between various specialties, that allows to recover the place of center of the identity of the human being, as being subject to accompany in health and illness. I think this may have benefits in the morbidity and mortality of patients.

BACKGROUND: Lung cancer is the oncological disease with the highest mortality worldwide. Health-related quality of life is severely compromised in the majority of patients. While the efficacy of early palliative psychosocial therapy has been demonstrated in several recent studies, appropriate therapy modules could so far not be integrated into daily practice of care. Therefore, an additive multimodal treatment concept for oncological centers was drafted: the Additive anthroposophic integrative medicine Cancer Concept of Early supportive or Palliative lung cancer Treatment (ACCEPT®). PATIENTS AND METHODS: The first module consisted of a 3-month health education program, the second module was a concept of psychosocial interventions, and the third module was a supervised home training program. Between 2017 and 2018, 20 lung cancer patients (UICC IIIB/IV) were included and randomly assigned to treatment (n = 10) or a waiting control group (n = 10). The treatment group started ACCEPT® for 3 months immediately after diagnosis and received also standard oncological care (SOC) while the waiting control group received SOC only for 3 months, followed by ACCEPT® after this period. Health-related quality of life, disease management, disease-specific symptoms, and feasibility of the ACCEPT® were monitored at 4 time points. RESULTS: 7 out of 10 patients in the treatment group (3 dropped out) and 6 out of 10 in the waiting control group (4 died during the intervention) completed treatment. DISCUSSION/CONCLUSION: Lung cancer patients with high symptom load may benefit from ACCEPT®. The feasibility of this adjunctive therapy was demonstrated. The combination of SOC and ACCEPT® is feasible and applicable to a heterogeneous patient group and should be further evaluated with respect to efficacy and dosing.

ABSTRACT: Objective: To propose elements for the development of Food and Nutrition Education practices integrated to pedagogical activities for children. Methods: This is a qualitative case study, with participant observation and semi-structured interviews, carried out in a non-formal learning space, that is inspired in anthroposophy, Slow Food movement and Pikler approach. Participants were 13 children aged one to four years and three educators, and the data were interpreted by reflexive thematic analysis, using the Complex Thought as a theoretical framework. Results: The Food and Nutrition Education was consolidated in different pedagogical activities, such as cultivation practices, reverence in dealing with food, rituals and sharing, in an environmental and transdisciplinary approach. Conclusion: Nutrition education activities as part of a relationship with the environment and the planet, seen from a transdisciplinary perspective, is a differential in the formation of principles and values in early childhood education.

RESUMO: Objetivo: O artigo busca propor elementos para o desenvolvimento de práticas de Educação Alimentar e Nutricional integradas a atividades pedagógicas para crianças. Métodos: Trata-se de um estudo de caso qualitativo, com observação participante e entrevistas semiestruturadas realizadas em um espaço de educação não formal, inspirado na antroposofia no movimento slow food e na abordagem Pikler. Os participantes foram 13 crianças de 1 a 4 anos e três educadores e os dados foram interpretados por meio de análise temática reflexiva, tendo como referencial teórico o Pensamento Complexo. Resultados: A Educação Alimentar e Nutricional foi consolidada em diferentes atividades pedagógicas, como práticas de cultivo, reverência aos alimentos, rituais e partilha, em uma abordagem ambiental e transdisciplinar. Conclusão: As atividades de educação nutricional como parte da relação com o meio ambiente e o planeta, vistas de uma perspectiva transdisciplinar, são um diferencial na formação de princípios e valores na Educação Infantil.

BACKGROUND: Acute bronchitis is one of the most common pediatric diseases. In addition to conventional therapies, a frequent use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) has been stated. Anthroposophic medicine (AM) is one of the most practiced complementary and integrative medicine (CIM) approaches in Central Europe but hitherto no consensus-based clinical recommendations or guidelines are available. Therefore, a consensus-based recommendation leading to an informed and reasonable use of AM in the treatment of acute bronchitis in pediatrics was developed. METHODS: A total of 61 physicians in Germany with expertise in the field of anthroposophic pediatrics was invited to complete an online multistep Delphi process. Two independent reviewers quantitatively and qualitatively evaluated the results. The survey was completed when >75 % consensus was achieved. RESULTS: The clinical recommendation comprises 15 subitems related to treatment as well as clinical and psychosocial aspects. All items reached strong consensus (>90 %; N = 9) or consensus (75-90 %; N = 6). CONCLUSION: The comprehensive clinical recommendation creates a scientific base for the anthroposophic integrative treatment of acute bronchitis in children in Germany. It will make the anthroposophic approach more applicable, understandable and comparable to a wider public of physicians and other health professionals in Germany.

PURPOSE: Little is known about the longitudinal development of different plasma protein levels during early childhood and particularly in relation to lifestyle factors. This study aimed to monitor the plasma proteome early in life and the influence of different lifestyles. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: A multiplex bead-based immunoassay was used to analyze plasma levels of 97 proteins in 280 blood samples longitudinally collected in children at 6, 12, 24, and 60 months of age living in families with an anthroposophic (n = 15), partly anthroposophic (n = 27), or non-anthroposophic (n = 28) lifestyle. RESULTS: A total of 68 proteins (70%) showed significantly altered plasma levels between 6 months and 5 years of age. In lifestyle stratified analysis, 59 of 97 (61%) proteins were altered over time within one or more of the three lifestyle groups. Nearly half of these proteins (28 out of 59) changed irrespective of lifestyle. The temporal changes represented four longitudinal trends of the plasma proteins during development, also following stratification of lifestyle. CONCLUSIONS AND CLINICAL RELEVANCE: Our findings contribute to understand the development of the plasma proteome under the influence of lifestyle exposures in early childhood.

BACKGROUND: Physicians who include complementary medicine in their practice are thought to have an understanding of health and disease different from that of colleagues practicing conventional medicine. The aim of this study was to identify and compare the thoughts and concepts concerning infectious childhood diseases (measles, mumps, rubella, chickenpox, pertussis and scarlet fever) of physicians practicing homeopathic, anthroposophic and conventional medicine. METHODS: This qualitative study used semistructured interviews. Participating physicians were either general practitioners or pediatricians. Data collection and analysis were guided by a grounded theory approach. RESULTS: Eighteen physicians were interviewed (6 homeopathic, 6 anthroposophic and 6 conventional). All physicians agreed that while many classic infectious childhood diseases such as measles, mumps and rubella are rarely observed today, other diseases, such as chickenpox and scarlet fever, are still commonly diagnosed. All interviewed physicians vaccinated against childhood diseases. A core concern for physicians practicing conventional medicine was the risk of complications of the diseases. Therefore, it was considered essential for them to advise their patients to strictly follow the vaccination schedule. Homeopathic-oriented physicians viewed acute disease as a biological process necessary to strengthen health, fortify the immune system and increase resistance to chronic disease. They tended to treat infectious childhood diseases with homeopathic remedies and administered available vaccines as part of individual decision-making approaches with parents. For anthroposophic-oriented physicians, infectious childhood diseases were considered a crucial factor in the psychosocial growth of children. They tended to treat these diseases with anthroposophic medicine and underlined the importance of the family's resources. Informing parents about the potential benefits and risks of vaccination was considered important. All physicians agreed that parent-delivered loving care of a sick child could benefit the parent-child relationship. Additionally, all recognized that existing working conditions hindered parents from providing such care for longer durations of time. CONCLUSIONS: The interviewed physicians agreed that vaccines are an important aspect of modern pediatrics. They differed in their approach regarding when and what to vaccinate against. The different conceptual understandings of infectious childhood diseases influenced this decision-making. A survey with a larger sample would be needed to verify these observations.
