Holistic Health

Integrating conventional medicine with a thorough understanding of the human being

At Weleda, we strive for a holistic approach to health and wellness. We build our knowledge and practice on the principles of anthroposophic medicine, a system of medicine founded in the early 1920’s, by philosopher Rudolf Steiner and medical doctor Ita Wegmann.

A holistic, therapeutic approach

The therapy method of anthroposophic medicine is based on the balance between four organisational principles: the physical level; life forces level, or vitality; mental level and individual level or ego. The goal of therapy is to restore the necessary equilibrium when these four principles are out of balance.

An integrated medicine system

Anthroposophic medicine is an integrated system of medicine and does not fit into the category of ‘alternative medicine’ - instead it builds on conventional medical systems and practice.

Health is a continuous process

Salutogenesis plays a significant role in holistic health. Health is not considered to be static, but as a continuous process of development. This means that everyone discovers their own health sources and decides for themselves what needs to be done to maintain mental contentment and overall well-being.
