This Week In Wellness a study reviewing the available evidence supporting complementary and alternative (CAM) therapies to help babies with colic has suggested that probiotics, fennel extract and spinal manipulation, do appear to help.

The Systematic Reviews were published by researchers from the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) at the University of Bristol and the University of Manchester. It stated that whilst the available evidence was ‘limited’ due to small sample sizes, possible biases, the inability to “blind” practitioners and data collection methods, that the “encouraging” results require further investigation through well-designed RCTs” (randomised control trials).
