Modern medicine examines and treats the human body in terms of chemical and mechanical dysfunction. For this reason, conventional drugs and other interventions relate purely to the physical symptoms, and frequently involve exposure to unwanted side effects.

Anthroposophic doctors are conventionally qualified practitioners who go on to train with a fuller picture of the human body, examining the wider dimensions which make the human organism function as an actively thinking, feeling and aware person.

Using Rudolf Steiner’s principles and related treatments and therapies, anthroposophic doctors often attend to cases which conventional medicine has failed to cure. By responding to the wider picture of the patient, in terms of lifestyle, temperament, and sociability, they can re-establish a healthy balance while greatly reducing the use of conventional drugs.

“This book is an excellent introduction to the scope and potential of anthroposophic teaching in both medicine and education.” —Michael Endacott, Deputy Director, Institute of Complementary Medicine

“I would recommend this book to anyone working in healthcare—whether orthodox or complementary.” —Dr. David Peters, British Holistic Medical Association
