Anthroposophic medicine starts with a conventional diagnosis and includes in its assessment of the patient the imbalances of the body and the mental and spiritual dimensions. It offers specific therapies enhanced according to anthroposophic principles.
A model for integrative medicine
The treatment approach intends to bring about a process of development within the patient, reinforcing the patient’s natural self-healing ability. Anthroposophic medicine uses both conventional and anthroposophic medicinal products.
Anthroposophic medicine was first developed in 1920 and is now used in both primary and clinical care in over twenty EU Member States. It offers a high degree of patient satisfaction.
Research shows that anthroposophic medicine is safe and effective and leads to only sparing use of antibiotics and minimal medication costs.
