MEDICAL DOCTORS, DOCTORS OF OSTEOPATHY
The Physicians’ Association for Anthroposophic Medicine was founded in 1981. Its aim is to facilitate personal contact and exchange of knowledge between anthroposophic physicians, with other health practitioners, and with the public.
What is anthroposophic medicine?
Anthroposophic medicine is a scientific, holistic and human-centered approach to medicine. It recognizes and uses the vast information acquired by modern medicine in the fields of anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, and diagnosis. Then it goes further, adding knowledge of the laws of the living organism, of the psyche, and the spirit.
This knowledge is derived from a spiritual scientific methodology which expands on the conventional scientific method. It requires—besides an ongoing professional, personal, and moral development—an active inner life, as outlined by Rudolf Steiner in the early 1900’s. Such inner activity leads to a deepened capacity for apprehending the whole human being in health and illness.
