What is Anthroposophic Medicine?
Anthroposophic medicine is a holistic and human-centered approach to medicine. It recognizes and uses modern medicine’s vast information and rigorous methodology. Then it goes further, adding knowledge of the laws of the living organism, the psyche, and the spirit. This knowledge is derived from a spiritual scientific methodology, which expands on the conventional scientific method. It requires—besides the ongoing professional, personal, and moral development required of every true physician—an active meditative life. This inner activity leads to a deepened capacity for apprehending the whole human being. Such a meditative journey is outlined by Rudolf Steiner.
The result is an integrated image of the whole human being in illness and health. This makes possible a holistic but also rational approach to physiology, pathology, and therapy.
