Anthroposophic medicine is an integrative medicine that extends the way medical practitioners, nurses and complementary therapists understand their practice through objective studies of the physical, soul and spiritual human being. It originates from the work of Dr. Rudolf Steiner (1861 – 1925) and Dr. Ita Wegman (1876 – 1943). Steiner is most well known for developing Steiner / Waldorf Education and Bio-dynamic Organic Agriculture.
Anthroposophic Medicine is now integrated into medical training in Switzerland, Austria and Germany. In other countries training is in addition to foundational studies in medicine, nursing and complementary health including homeopathy and massage.
