The chapter on jaundice was very interesting. Here’s something I heard recently (but I think is considered dangerous) – to put the baby in a bathtub with live carp swimming around. It’s supposed to work like the pigeon cure for hepatitis – the carp absorb the bilirubin.
Please do not try this – I’ve also heard that it’s not effective, because the baby’s liver is not fully mature, and the bilirubin will rise again after the ‘treatment.’
Has anyone else heard of this? Any professionals have input?
