  • „The Human Race – Too Smart to survive”, 1st edition 2020: In this book, Dr. Meier describes the concept of a holistic view on health, disease and treatment. This includes an understanding of the central and autonomic nervous systems, minerals and trace elements, nutrition, emotions, environmental influences, vaccinations, and an analysis of the first 6 months of the “corona crisis.” Medicine mainly treats symptoms but does not offer causal solutions. In contrast, this book is full of ways to promote your own health and reverse 97% of chronic diseases. A real guide to taking your health into your own hands.
  • Co-authored book: “Characters of Everyday Life – Guide through the Soup of Life”, 1st edition 2020: In this book, the authors describe the various characters of everyday life and how they influence us. In particular, each chapter elaborates on the causes of character development and what interpersonal problems can arise and how to solve them. The book is a guide for anyone who repeatedly finds themselves in similar situations but does not know why. The book is suitable for getting to know oneself and one’s fellow human beings better and, based on that, can make better life decisions and raise one’s quality of life.
